THE WOULD MOVES
Nowadays ve see the tractor doing
duty, like a charm; it's the most im
portant factor in the business of the
farm. Oh, we see the farmer sitting
on a spring seat painted green, and-a
wondrous gait he's hitting, as he tools
his weird machine. Horses look to
him like fakers, and for mules he'd
give no mon; for he plows a dozen
acres where a team would fall at one.
As I view the mighty tractor oldon j
times return to me, when I was a tragic
actor in the scenes of husbandry. One
old mule was my allotment, one old
mule of brlndle gray, utid she knew
just what n swat meunt, for I larruped
her all day. All the. deary day I
whacked her, soaked her ribs, and then
again, and I longed to have a tractor,
which was not Invented then. With a
club her ribs I polished, hoping thus
nome speed to gain; but all schedules
Were abolished by that mule, and clods
were vain. All my better years were
nauandered In thlH slow and futile way;
... tip and down the field I wandered, slow
as goose grease, through the day. Ana
the mule nt last I sacked her, and
took up a fountain pen. sore because
the useful tractor had not ben ln-
. vented then.

IF THE salmon does not become extinct within a few
years and a valuable industry destroyed, it will be no
fault of the fishermen who are doing their best to exter
minate the source of their livelihood.
To protect the salmon and permit propagation, closed

forbidding the sale of salmon thus caught during closed

The rapacity of fishermen knows no bounds. There
is probably no more short-sighted class. If there is a
sufficient supply of salmon in the. stream to operate a
cannery ,the canneries multiply and. the fishermen in
crease until over-fishing depletes the stream and destroys
the industry. Efforts for limitation and regulation are
hooted down as in the interest of monopoly. As long as
there is a salmon in the stream or in the sea 'tomorrow
takes care of itself.
It is not only the commercial fisherman that are
rapacious, but alleged "sportsmen" as well, who like to
print pictures proving themselves fish hogs.. The
last legislature passed a law establishing a closed
season for game fish over 10 inches in length during the
spawning winter and spring months and the "sports
men are now Hooding the lish and game commission
with petitions to nullify even this partial protection to
gratify their swinish propensities.
A good case in point comes in a petition from Ashland
"sportsmen" to re-open the Rogue to winter fishing for
spawning steelheads. These anglers keep a lobby at the
legislature during sessions to make war upon the salmon
canneries at the mouth of the Roeue. which are for-hidden
to take steelheads, but are unwilling themselves to give.

NULLIFYING THE TREATY.

there is little likelihood of a two-thirds vote for its ratifi
cation as amended. Should it be ratified, the president
will undoubtedly withdraw it, and thus accomplish its re
, . ,Wlth the foimre to ratify there will probably besome
kind of a compromise in which reservations acceptable to
the president be retained and the others dropped. In this
form, the treaty will either be ratified or become an issue
in the next national election.
The treaty of. Versailles, including the covenant of
the league of nations, has now been ratified by Great
Britain, France, Italy, Japan and Germany. The United
States, the real author of the treaty, alone among the
great powers, has failed to act, thanks to the cheap pol
itics of a partisan senate which has dealt in the smallest
possible way with the biggest issue ever before it.
Despite the approval of the treaty by other nations,
and the demobilization of their armies, a state of war still
exists and it is impossible to organize peace because of the
failure of the United States, the great peace nation of the
world, to act, and there is still question whether this gov
ernment will fulfill the moral obligations to humanity in
curred by the war, or leave the world to shift for itself
as it pursues a selfish policy of aggrandizement and iso
lation. ; The unrest prevailing in this country and elsewhere
is due largely to the uncertainty resultant from failure to
make peace an actuality as speedily as possible. The fail-
uiv ul luc sfiiaie iu luncuon, is seen not only in the re
fusal to ratify the treaty, but in the failure to pass a single
reconstruction measure. As the New York World re-

Washington, Nov. 17. Actual work
of drawing up a new miners' wage
scale for the central competitive field,
the greatest soft coal district of the
country, started here today.
Committees representing employers
and workers met to draft a schedule.
Later, representatives of other mine
districts were to agree on a wage
scale, basefl on .the rates arranged for
the central field.
The miners have not yet entirely
receded from their. demands for a five
day week and a six hour day, but
they showed a disposition to be con
ciliatory and indications today were
that an agreement, even though tem
porary, would be reached. - . ,.
Meanwhile, reports were being re
ceived of miners returning to work in
increasing numbers, although in many
places hundreds were refusing to re
turn to work. Troops were being with
drawn from the Coal fields, all fear of
riots having disappeared.

He returned later in the morning to
