The people 'of Ireland witnessed
species of excitement yestorday, In
the International automobile races
which makes the traditional "wake'
a tame nffnlr. The entire distance
around the race course was strown
with wrecks, and doctors followed
up In autos, with rolls of bandages
and Jncs of liniment piled Inch on
the relief cars, nroken collar hones
and arms, mashed noses and bruised
bodies all claimed the attention of
the physicians. The scene must
have reminded the old Irishmen of
a running fight between two warring
clans in the oldun days. Talk about a
modern war dance being a basis of
hysterics nmong nervous people, what
would the sight of an automobile
race bring on?

"We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that nil men nrc

dowed by their creator with
certain Inalienable rights; that
among these are life, liberty

That to secure these rlglts

Just powers from the consent of

form of government becomes
destructive of these ends, It Is

organizing Its powers In such
form as to them shall seem most
likely to effect their safety and
happiness." Declaration of Independence.
Oovornor Cummins accepts tho
Iowa nomination but he draws the
line on the platform. He serves no
tice on the convention that he still
holds to his "Iowa Idea," and is wil
ling to hold on to the governorship,
also. He says In his speech of aa
ceptance that the tariff Is too high
and thnt his efforts In future shall
be directed toward a reduction of it.
It Is a compromise such a compro
ntise as Is always effected when a
"boss" raises the lash and says:
"Dig." to some unwilling sorvant
wearing the usual insignia of tho
party rock pile.
PROGRESS OF PATRIOTISM.
The Fourth of .July celebration hns
progressed as much as any other
Amerlcnn Institution during tho past
ten years. Innovations which would
seem almost sacrilegious to the pat
riots of fifty years ago have been
Introduced, and custom has so chang
ed the olden aspect of the holiday
that It is scarcely recognizable.
Not only have new customs been
introduced, but the very spirit of the
tlay has changed. I'atrlotism Is the
last consideration in the Fourth of
July program of today. When nil
other details are urranged, then some
provision Is made for the exuberant
spirit which was
of the celebration
The first tlqtnlls of the celebration,
today, are commercial problems to
be met. The business men must or
ganize, appoint committees and pre
pare tho financial accounts, as If the
celebration of the tlay were a com
mercial event. Everything which Is
intended for the amusement and com
fort of the people must bo paid for at
regular rates. Hooks are opened, ac
counts are kept and all the formality
and stiffness of a business deal ac
company the proceeding. Tho old
spontanlety and freedom of former
days hnve disappeared. The result
of this chnuge or base Is, that tho
first nlm or the celebration is to get
it crowd, nnd tho next in to got as
much cash return out ot that crowd
It is simply a commercial undertak
ing. So much money Is raised to
prepare for tho orcaslon, nnd the day
1b supposed to yield a business re
turn In proportion to tho expenditure.
How many Fourth of July celebra
tions today will include the tree din
ner for tho crowd, in the grove? How
many full baskets will he unloaded
on the picnic grounds of Oregon to
day?" The custom of joining in n
union dinner on tables hundreds of
feet long, nt which all were welcome,
has almost totally disappeared oxrnpi
in small gatherings, In the country.
Tho oration of todny is generally a
jmrtlsau review or current Issues,
with occasional rororonco to tho roun
ders or the government, us u means
or exciting a little burst or applause.
The old story or tho patriots nnd
their long suffering has become a
"chestnut" to the advancing hosts of
Tho strain of preparing ror the oc
casion nnd raising funds for it Is so
great upon a few business men who
must necessarily take the lead, that
It becomes an Irksome tnsk.
Tho cost or the various attractions
has become so- great that tho dona

The management of the Lewis nnd
Clark fair should be willing to do as
much tor the circulation or Infornm
tlon about the fulr as the newspa
pers. Every paper In tho Northwest
would be willing to Ibsuo a special
edition descriptive or tiie fair, one
half of the edition to be paid ror and
circulated by the management and
one-half to be circulated by tho pa
pers themselves. In addition to this
special edition every paper would
Issue more than the' amount of the

the progress of the preparations.
The engineer In chnrgo of the port
uge road surveys, says that the ap
propriation of $lo,00n will be suffic
ient to build the road. Let the
"knockers" who have been nt work
against this Improvement now cease
their work. Oregon needs this road
and the proposition was fully dis
cussed nnd estimated uefore the
amount was fixed.
CORPORATIONS MUST REPORT

to test tho legality of the license, all

are paying the tax.

doubted the lognllty or tho 'corpora

In sending for a blank,
Tho Southern Pacific Company, of
Kentucky, Is the largest corporation
to register In Oregon, undor the now
law. The capitalization or this com
pnny Is $197,849,227.40.
Many smnll business concerns, not
fully aware of the inclining of the law,
will pass the matter up, as not apply
Ing to them and will be fined. The
law explicitly says thnt every cor
poration organized nnd doing bust
ncss In the state, shall be subject to
this license, ami thore is no escape
for any incorporated body.
BLACK FACTS FOR
Judge Cleland, of Portland, has de
cided that the Initiative and referen
dum amendment is no part of the
formerly the basis constitution of Oregon. This will be
a surprise to the people who elected
the legislature to transact their bus
iness. The legislature is a needless
luxury, It seems.
