An Idol ? Man was born to wor
An Idol Is an Imago of his
Sometimes he carves It out of
And sometimes moulds It out of
Or rounds It In a mighty tresco
Or lifts It beavenwaid In a lofty
Or shapes It In a cunning frame
Or pays his priest to make It
day by day
For Sense must have its God as
well as Soul.

The death rate in the city of Ma
nila has decreased under American
management, from IC to each 100(1
population In the first quarter of 11)00
to 22.1" iier 10011 for the first quar
ter of 19(13. In the city of Havana
even n greater Improvement than this
was made in the sanitary condition),
under American rule. If the Filipino
will now behavo properly and allow
the death rate from American rllles
to decrease In this proportion, his race
may be saved from annihilation.
In the revised edition of "Oregon,
Washington and Idaho," llinnldo M.
Hall, the O. U. & N. advertising
agent, has made a marked improve
ment in the subject matter. The ro
mantic has been largely eliminated
and nil the statements In regard to
Oregon resources nre backed up by
names, dates and figures which make
the book authentic nnd practically
correct. Tho plain facts about the
Northwest are good enough, There is
no need of Imagination to add charm
to the matchless story.
The Iowa democrats recognize the
unbridled growth or the trusts as the
greatest menace to the people and in
ringing sentences demand that their
career be checked. Tho platform Is
democratic in the strictest sense of
Jlie word, It appeals to no prejudice
ot j)orsonal Interests, but makes one
general attack on corporate greed and
demands In no uncertain terms that
the privileges of the people be taken
from tho hands of the few and restor
ed to the masses. The tariff revision
element in tho republican party will
find the democratic demands so con
genial to their own sentiments, that
something akin to a tariff reform,
anti-trust coulltlon between them
may be expected In Iowa before the
campaign Is over.
The German socialist vote has in
creased 40 per cent in the past two
years. Thirteen now scats In the
reichstag were won by them In last
Friday's elections and most of the
leading scientists and scholars of the
nutlon belong to that party. Just
what disposal will bo made of the
ancient roynl regime, the royul fami
ly, tho throne and the "divine right,"
lias not yot been decided upon, but
Emperor William will awnko some
morning to find that ho Is only plain
Air, Hohenzollorn, a man without u
title and that the people that great
misunderstood force, has taken over
their nnclent legacy the right to rule
and the right to tho use of tho soli
for sustenance and happiness. Tho
spread of socialism in the army is one
of the most .alarming features of the

There are more transients of the
demi-monde order, "macqiles," hangers-on
and gamblers in I'eiidloton Jtrnt
now than there hos been at any time
during the past winter.
More strange faces arc seen early
nnd late nmong the unclassified, than
for many months. There Is no unu
sual attraction for them hero, bill the
tide from the closed towns of Wash
ington has Inadvertently turned this
way. Jinny of them will remain but
a few days, simply making this ono
stopping point In me endless pilgrim
age. Others are here to stay.
The antl-gnmbllng law of Washing
ton Is being rigidly enforced and
overy city of any size Is weeding out
Its gambling population by that pro
cess. Eastern Oregon towns nre re
ceiving this lloatlng population in
groat numbers, I.a Grande and linker
Gay nre both complaining of the sud
den acquisition of street walkers and
men of unknown occupation. Simili
ter has received more than her share
and all the Intervening small places
have been visited by characters oi
the same stripe.
The same process which started
tills pilgrimage In Washington should
keep It moving In Oregon. The towns
of Eastern Oregon should not get
the reputation of being fresh and in
viting pastures for men whose occu
pation Is barred by law In a sister
Jlore rigid regulation and closer
vigilance on the part of Pendleton
and other towns now being visited 1
this class wilt result In Its disappear
ante, all together, within a few years.
As long as there is u Held not elos
ed against them, they will thrive. It
Is not a wholesome reputation for Or
egon towns, to bo classed as last re
sorts for these people. As long as
this condition prevails, the efforts of
Washington toward reducing the evil
will fall Hut.
The death penalty does not detel'
men from committing crime. The
New York states prisons now contain
1" men sentenced to deatli and the
burning of a negro in Delaware on
.Monday did not prevent a crime,
equnl to his, In Jllssourl on Thurs
day. There Is no penalty horrible
enough to check rage or Insane pas
sion in a weak man. '
It Is only a step from the govern
I ment regulation of railroad freight
rates to government control or the
roads. The interstate commerce com
mission costs the people about a hall
million dollars per year, nnd its duty
is to hold In check the transportation
corporations. It don't earn a dollar
In Income to the government.
New rural delivery routes in Ore
gon, increasing postal business, the
extonslon of telephone systems and
tho improvement In star route mull
service, all indicate that tho people
are being benefited by blessings of
the ngo. The next great stop In their
favor will bo a gonornl reduction or
GUAM'S LARGE SUPPLY OF DOGS.
An olllcer or the murine corps
brings to Washington tho Interesting
Information that a feature of one or
our insular possessions Is an abnor
mal supply of dogs. Guam, of which
we know so little save that It served
ns a prison for transported Filipinos,
Is famous for Its dogs. Poverty
stricken and cnustltutlnnally lazy,
tho natives naturally take to dogs.
Neither tho natives nor the dogs have
enough to eat, and in the struggle for
food tho superiority of tho biped over
the quadruped Is shown, and tho dog
gets the worst of It. Hut oven whoro
things are equal, the dogs show moro
uctlvlty and roam about searching for
food, while the native wallows in tho
filth of his dugout.
Tho dogs nro a great nuisance to
the white people who are compelled to
live In the Islnnd. They prowl about
the houses at night and seize any
thing that smells like food and make
off with It. They will oven break
through windows of tho houses. The
inorlno officers suy that the dogs aro
thin nnd bony, vicious on account of
hunger, and generally a very disagree
nble lot. He tried to keep them from
his quarters with a shotgun, but tho
shooting at all times of night dis
turbed other ofilcors, and ho adopted
tlie poison method. He supplied tho
nogs witn rresn meat thoroughly inoc
ulated with quick-acting poison from
the medical department, and each
morning obtained a crop of Guam
dogs, Not that ho wanted them, but
ho did want sleep, and this was tho
only way ho could obtain It.

Ileforo his death, in years ,
over, Whitman's declining years wore
somowhnt soothed by Indications of
growing public appreciation. Noi
only were some of Ills books sold, nut
lending critics, on ro-oxamlnatlon,
found true poetry and genius in them.
And now a complete edition of Wh t
man's works has been published in
10 volumes, to bo sold nt $750, or
$75 n volume. It seems a pity that
Whitman could not have lived to see
such a triumph or his brain work a
this indicates. Hut perhaps he knows.

form of writing tlint 1b nrrangoil In columns.
As tho written page on tho Umlorwoou Is always In full sight of
tho user, no letter or wont doing covered up nt any time, the value
of tho tnbulator, when applied to the Undorwood Typewriter, Is ap
parent. This fenturo alone gives double value to the Underwood.
No oxtra charge la mado for tho tabulator; it Is not an attachment,
but an Integral part of the machine. The entire opqration of the
tnbulnr mechanism is controiiod by ()no koy. Eyesight does the
roat. The most complicated form can be easily, quickly and accur
ately followed, because you always see what you are doing.
Tho Underwood Tabulator is Bolldly framed In the machine, and
does not "rack" thu Instrument, it Is provided with an automatic
brake, which governs tho movoment of tho carrlngo porfectly.
