Miss Stone has .been redeemed or res

something had to occur to keep the
newsgathorers from becoming indo
lent. A Chinese rebellion offers
great opportunity for any kind of
story telling for which one is best fit
ted. The country press can do great
work for Oregon by insisting upon
the election of H. V. Scott for Unit
ed States senator. He is the one man
in the state best fitted fc- the office,
but lie will not "seek the office" and
that is not popular with the average
legislature in this day and generation
and it is because of this attitude
that the demand, has sprung up for
the election of senator by a direct
vote of the people.

DEYANKEEIZING OF A STATE.
The vital statistics of Massachu
setts, recently published in an offi
cial report, are causing considerable
surprise and much discussion by the
newspapers of that state. From
statements printed in those papers
it appear that during the year 1900,
73,386 babies were born in Massachu
setts. Of this number 37,772 were
boys, 35, CM girls; 23,000 of native
and 36,062 of foreign parentage
The population of the state in that
year was 2,805,34o, of whfch number
1,959,022 were native born and 810,-
324 foreign born. On this basis the
Boston Herald figures that while na
tive born outnumber the foreign
born by more than two to one, the
number of births among the foreign
born exceeds those among the native
born in about the same proportion.
The same paper states that in 1900
there were 24.342 marriages, 10.9G5
among the native and 8.S07 among
the foreign born, but as the result of
Ihose marriages there wore 2.1 child
ren of native and 1.4 children of for
The rapid disappearance of the old
American stock has long been ob
served in Boston, but from these sta
tistics it would seem that the same
process is going on in the state at
large. It is not unlikely it is going
on all over New England, and that
the old Yankee type is rapidly becom
ing a mere matter of tradition.
The Boston Transcript, comment
ing upon the figures in the report,
dwells in a melancholy way upon
"the relative disappearance of the old
American stock." It is disappearing
in two ways. The large families
among Americans which was the rule
a century, or even half a century
ago, are no longer known. The na
tive New Englanders are little con
cerned about the scriptural injunction
while the foreign born obey It to the
letter and increase and multiply at a
prolific rate in Massachusetts, as
they do everywhere else. Ben Butler
recognized this many years ago, when
he predicted that the day was not far
distant when Massachusetts would
be a democratic state by the rapidly
increasing foreign birth rate.
Another cause for the disappear
ance of the typical New Englanders
is their inability to get a living among
the rocks and on the ungracious soil
of that section and their migrations
to the west, where nature is kinder
to the husbandman, while the great
factories of New England are filled
by employes imported from all parts
of Great Britain and Europe.
A SPASM OF HYPOCRISY.
Oregon politics seems nay, is
passing through a period of super
abundant hypocrisy. There seems -
nay, is very little earnestness and
honesty in the pre-convention discus
sion of men and matters.
All the talk about republicans, pro
and con, about abuses in the pub'ic
land business, Is not aimei so much
at retormation as at some injury to
this faction or that candidate. The
Journal has for years charged fiauds
in the federal and state laud depart
ments they still exist.
The discussion of the governorship
is not based on whether Geer has
made a fairly good or a les3 than av
erage executive. It is in the interest
of factions who want tho place so as
to reward friends.
Tho fight over the senatorshlp is
not honest nor aimed at any abuse in
the federal service. All the abuses of
federal appointments are now glossed
over and the state press was full of
them for years, and oven insulted Mc-
Klnley pjrsmullv on nfMiiui of the
character of some of them.
Some of tho papers that talk the
looudest about bosslsm and corruption
are themselvjd participants iu boodle
on a large scale.
Pure politics at tho hands of any
faction fighting for spols is a myth,
and that Is all the factions aro fight
ing for. Not one of their leaders
Is sincere In wanting bettor govern
ment. They want office.
Tho people who want good govern
ment should not be deceived by a
zeal for reform that is only a cloak
for political rapacity. If the people
get a better state administration it
will come from other sources than
spasmodic hypocrisy based on hunger
If we get a better state government
it will be by the taxpayers and pa
triotic citizens who Jovo good govern
ment for Its own satisfactory return,
holding a club ovor all these politi
cians clamoring for spoils.
Don't fall In with their factions.
Don't promise your votes until you
can see some progress made besides
hatred for ono aspirant for another.
