UVIN' RIGHT AT HOME
By Frank U Stanton1.)
I'm right here where the thrifty lark
Are flyin' p'er the loam;
The rise or fall of stocks may come
Calamity may beat the drum,
But Joy's for all, I've got some;
I'm Uvin' right at home.
I'm mighty glad I never was
Quite rich enough to roam;
Why should I, when the table' spread
And every day God grace Is said
Where there' a blessing on the bread
Right here, at home at home?
It' a good world from first to last!
With honey In the comb,
Sweet-drippln' from the old-time hives
The fields where honest tolling thrives.
And the sweet love of patient lives
Seem tietter here, at home,

THE PILOT SHOULD HAVE HIS WAY
SENATOR Borah and Senator Johnson have been prompt
in setting forth their views as to what the election
, meant The Borah position is set forth as follows:
, "The overwhelming and engulfing vote for the republican
ticket was the judgment of the American people against this
league or any other political alliance or combination with Euro
pean powers," the senator declared. "The league was the issue."
. He asserted the result of the election was "an absolute rejec
tion of all political alliances or leagues with foreign powers."
Borah is partly right and partly wrong. He is correct in
Baying that the vote was a mandate against entrance of this
country into the League of Nations under the treaty of Ver
sailles. The issue on that subject was clearly defined and the
verdict was given. The will of the electorate should be obeyed.
But as to "all political alliances or leagues," Mr. Borah is
incorrect Senator Harding on numerous occasions declared he
favored some form of an association of nations for peace. The
republican platform also calls for something of that sort There
fore the president elect and his party seem clearly committed
to that course. As to what that course should be Mr. Harding is
the logical judge and should have his way. That is what people
, There will of course, be difficulties in the way of a new asso
ciation. Article 20 is one obstacle but a greater one is that the
allies cannot invalidate one part of the treaty without invalidat
ing all unless all parties, including Germany, are agreeable to
the changes. The sticking point will be how to satisfy both Ger
many ana france.
. Necessarily, Mr. Harding, having been elected, is the man to
take the lead. He was chosen president for that purpose and
should have a clear field. The Johnsons and Borahs and the
democrats should give him a chance and hold him to responsi
bility if mistakes are made. There has been enough discussion
of the subject from a political angle. What is needed now is a
settlement of the matter.
THE PASSING OF NOME
THE annual fall exodus leaves fewer than 200 people in the
once famous, though always desolate, beach camp of
Nome. Returning Alaskans say the curtain is all but
drawn on the old camp where, in the summer of 1898, nearly
15,000 people surged, swore, fought and caroused.
Nome has gone the way of scores of fitful placer camps. Its
story is the tale of another setting of Orofino, Pierce City, War
rens and Florence of the early '60s in northern Idaho; of the
North Fork placer camps of the Coeur d'Alenes in the early '80s,
of Central City and Leadville, in Colorado, of wasted camps in
Montana and southern Idaho, in British Columbia, Oregon and
Nevada, to say nothing of the wild days of the '50s in California.
Exceptions to the rule of hectic activity and quick decay are
Helena, site of a one-time noted placer camp, and the fine city
of Denver, where, in the summer of 1858, James H. Pierce pan
ned out a little gold from a sand-bar near the mouth of Cherry
creek, a discovery that fired the expectations of thousands and
started the historic rush to the "Pike's peak country."
The fine and progressive city of Lewiston, Idaho, is another
exception to the rule of oblivion that has been the almost unfail
ing fate of placer camps. While, strictly speaking, Lewiston tfas
not a placer camp, but the outfitting point, at the head of steam
boat navigation, for the stampede into the Clearwater region
in he early '60s, it was a placer camp in all its aspects and in the
wild spirit of early day gold hunting.
. . With the sailing away of the steamship Victoria, bearing 350
Nome residents, most of whom announced their purpose never
to return, the brooding spirit of melancholy came in with the
long, long winter. Again the "wolf's long howl is heard on Oun
alaska's lonely shore," and the remnant of population is left
with memories and disappointed hopes. Yet a few will cling to
the deserted beach to the last breath of life, for such is the un-
iamng record oi every lamous camp, to live over again in mem
ory, through the long arctic nights, the stirring scenes' of 20
years ago. Spokesman-Review.
The people by their ballots restored the capital puishment
law and are getting what they vdted for. '

Groping in the Dark
Time was when thepurchase of advertising space was a
"blind grouping in the dark." Advertisers had no means of
checking a publisher's statement of circulation and often these
figures were unreliable. " r:-. ' '
In six years the Audit Bureau of Circulations has solved
this perplexing problem. By a systematic analysis of distribu
tion and methods, this organization is able to supply just the
data an advertiser needs. The darkness is dispelled and the
bright light of verified facts takes its place. Space buyers no
longer find it necessary to grope ill the dark.!
There are no dark spots in the EAST OREGONIAN'S cir
culation. Our records are audited by the Audit Bureau of Cir-
cuiauoiis. v , . v....
