The flat salary proposition in Ore
gon is now quite Hat. The election
is over and the next Oregon legisla
ture is too strongly republican. "Who

At least It is not to be expected
The election of Mr. Lee Teutsch as
a director of the public schools of
district No. 16 is recognition of a
worthy and popular citizen and busi
ness man of Pendleton. Mr. Teutsch
is a man who is always alive to the
needs of the community. He is public-spirited,
carrying his share of the
burden of good citizenship and never
shirking any call to duty. He will
take an active interest in the affairs
of the school district and his labors
will not be without result to the peo
ple and school children.
The Chicago Record-Herald com
ments upon the adoption of the initia
tive and referendum in Oregon as
follows: "Here is a remarkable as
sertion of popular sovereignty as
against, legislative and executive
power. It is easy to call it an 'attack
on representative government,' but
the people have a right to 'attack'
their agents and servants that is,
to deprive them of some of the pow-
er tnoy nave long been permitted to
exercise and abuse. The extension
of the referendum is inevitable, for
the simple and conclusive reason
that legislatures are no longer
trusted." In this "remarkable asser-
tion" Oregon simply took a step a
little in advance of her sister states
that-will be sure to follow her.

will have to solve it correctly or a
government of the people, by the peo

arising from the slavery question will
not be a heel-tap to those to arise
from the land question in the next
quarter or half century.
So far the result of the pursuit of
the convicts, Tracy and Merrill con-
slsts of the expenditure of several
thousands of dollars, much loss of
energy and the shooting of one of
the pursuers by another of them,
under the impression, entertained by
both of them, that the other was one
of the. convicts. The unfortunate
man, a Vancouver painter named
Morris, will probably lose his leg If
not bis life. This whole trouble
arises because peanut politics, of the
republican variety were allowed to
influence the management and con
duct of the penitentiary at Salem.
When the voters of Oregon awake to
the good results of more independent
( voting and are less subservient to
i their party machine there may be
better and less expensive government
at Salem. Voting one way all the
time is of itself a great and glaring
evil which inflicts no light penalty
upon a people.
SELF-GOVERNMENT IN CUBA.
William J. Bryan, who was present
at the installation of
president, Tomas E. Palma, into of
weekly concerning self-government
mat tne people of Cuba are ca-
nable, of self-government is not a
tjuuauuii uijeu lur umimie. nenry
Clay declared, in his defence of the
Independence of the South American
republics, that God never made a
people incapable of self-government;
that it was the doctrine of thrones
m. . v..iv.ttwAi vjii uvuuvau iu any
that He created people incapable of
self-government and left them to the
government of kings and emperors.
Clay's logic i3 sound. Capacity for
government is not a thing to be ac
quired or to be bestowed; it is in-
herent m the people As inaivlcluals
differ in Wisdom, in self-restraint and
in moral character, so nations differ,
,ut il cannot bo said that any nation
has reached perfection in tho science
of government or in tho art of ad
ministration; neither can it be said
that any nation Is so low down in
the scaIe of civilization that it needs
a foreign master. When Jefferson
lnted tQ auggegt ,aws fQf &

"ee government does not mean that
means that tho people will have such
a government as tho majority desire,
and that eacn lnuiviuuiu tun
his views to his fellows with the con
fidence that whatever is best for all
will ultimately prevail.
Sevoral important questions will
require Immediate consideration. The
question of sanitation will, of course,
receive tho attention of tho new gov
ernment; for Cuba cannot afford to
bo shut out from tho outside world,
and it cannot expect communication
between tho Island and the United
States unless that communication can
be carried on without risk of disease.
Education Is a problem of the first
magnitude. While private and paro
chial schools can do much, the public
schools must place education within
the reach of every child and thus fit
all for more intelligent participation
in the affairs of tho government. The
deep and widespread interest already
manifested in the improvement of
school facilities gives great encour
agement for the future.
It should be the policy of the gov
ernment to encourage homo owning.
Until human nature Is entirely
changed men will give better care
and cultivation to land which they
own than to land which they rent.
The stimulus that one finds in the
sense of proprietorship is indispen
sable to tho highest effort. To this
end the growth of great estates
should he discouraged and a wider
distribution of the land encouraged.
Saving should also" bo encouraged,
and to this end government savings
banks would be useful.
The government must bo careful to
avoid the evils of private monopoly.
Alan is too frail to be entrusted with
the power which a monopoly gives
and the president and his advisers
should be on their guard against the
dangers which come with the grant
ing of franchises and concessions for
the control of any branch of busi
ness. The government of interven
tion lias reserved to the Cuban gov
ernment tho right to cancel and an
nul all franchises granted during the
temporary occupancy of the Island.
It will thus be within the power of
the permanent government to make
such conditions and impose such re
strictions as may seem necessary,
and It is to be hoped that means will
be taken at once to protect the rights
of the people.
In the procession which escorted
President-elect Palma to his homo
when he returned from exile, a num
ber of Cuban ladles represented the
republics of the Western Hemis
phere, the United States, the eldest
and Cuba the youngest of tho group.
It reminded me of tho great banyan
tree under which our party rested for
a moment as we passed through Key
.West; for are not these republics
much like the banyan treo? Free
government was planted upon Amer
ican soil a century ago; it grow and
sent forth its branches In every di
rection, and these branches taking
root, now support the parent tree;
beneath the influence of these re
publics, separate in their govern
ment, and yet united in their aspira
tions, an over-increasing multitude
finds shelter and protection. Long
live tho national banyan tree the

That's the personal question a woman
asks herself when she reads of the cures
of womanly diseases by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
Why shouldn't it cure her?
Is it a complicated case? Thousands
of auch cases have been cured by "Fa
vorite Prescription." Is it a condition
which local doctors have declared in
curable? Among the hundreds of thou
sands of sick women cured by the use of
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription there
are a. great many who were pronounced
incurable by local doctors. Wonders
have been worked by "Favorite Pre
scription" in the cure of irregularity,
weakening drains, inflammation, ulcera
tion and female weakness. It always
helps. It almost always cures.
"Three years ago," writes Mrs. John Grabam,
of 3018 Plumb Street, (Frankford) Philadelphia,
Pa., "I had a very bad attack of dropsy which
left me with heart trouble, apd also a very weak
back. At times I was so bad that I did not know
what to do with myself. My children advised
me to take your ' Favorite Prescription,' but I
had been taking so much medicine from the doc
tor that I was discouraged with everything. I
came to Philadelphia two years ago, and pick
ing up one of your little books one day began to
red what your medicine had done for others; I
determined to try it myself. I took seven bot
tles, and to-day I am a strong, well woman,
weighing 161 pounds. Have gained j pounds
since I started to use 'Favorite Prescription.'"
