THE PANIC. -
The wlite men now predict a panic
before this year grows old; there'll be
catastrophes titanic by Autumn, we
are told. The wise men hand us,
through their fares, of all sad news
the worst; the present boom has no

Then there'll be coming. fast and fast
er, all kind of perils dire; the doc will
pawn his mustard plastor, the bard
will soak his lyre. Then Biddy boys
who now are burning the costly brands
of gas will be for handouts vainly

maybe twenty-ffve. Let's do some wise

time of stress, and when we see the
panic panning we will survive, I guess.
And if the panic doesn't reach ua we'll
be ahead our store; and saving some

ANEW political party has been launched in Salem, the
Land and Labor League, by radical leaders of organ
ized labor and the state grange, for the purpose of unit
ing workmen and fanners to secure fundamental changes
Nearly all of the proposed legislation endorsed by the
League's platform, has in the past decade been submitted
to the people of Oregon by initiative measures fathered

be to make up the deficit and the people have repeated
ly spurned the single-tax idea in any form.
The people have refused to abolish the senate, reius
ed to establish a department of industry and public works,
have rej'ected measures to socialize public utilities and es
tablish state marketing system. The demand for voting
by mail places a premium on Iazyness. Changed condi
tions may have wrought a change in sentimentthat re
mains to be seen.
The "kevnote" of the platform is the extension of the
direct primary to the initiative, referendum and recall.
This would enable any person to submit an Initiative bill
at a primary, when a majority vote would place it on the
ticket at the general election. It would make popular
legislation easy by eliminating th? expense of securing
thousands of signatures, now necessary. Every one can
father legislation under the League's plan when every
man will be his own legislator.
However, the platform is admittedly a compromise
designed to effect a merger of labor and farm interests,
and when union of these elements i3 completed, and far
mers and workmen hitched together, the team is expected
by the organizers to pull state socialism to victory.

Organized labor and the farmer have so few interests
in common and so many conflicting, that any attempts to
unite them politically seems doomed to failure at least
in Oregon. As well talk of politically uniting the employ
er and employe.
Labor is interested chiefly m higher wages and
shorter hours, both of which injure the farmer for they
impede production and curtail profit. They lure his help
to the city and force a reduced output from his land. The
farmer is the chief victim of the short day and excessive
wage. Nor has the farmer, the un-American "class con
sciousness of the radical labor agitator a relic of old-
world serfdom. On the contrary, he has the conservatism
of the property holder, and the viewpoint of the employ-
This week representatives of the National Grange
and affiliated farmer organizations, representing four
million fanners, gathered in convention at Washington
and demanded the speedy return of railroads to private
ownership and protested against nationalization of indus
try in any form. Representatives of organized labor at
the same time demanded an extension of federal control
of railroads and the passage of the Plumb bill, showing
fundamental difference in views that will make a political
alliance of labor and farmers impossible. 0

The house was made of grass and
leaves, plastered on the inside with
mud, and lined with softer, finer
grass, which his mother had chosen
with the greatest care.
But Jolly never paid much atten
tion to his first home. What interest
ed him more than anything else was
food. From dawn till dark, he was al
ways cheeping for something to eat.
And since the other children were Just
as hungry as he was, those four
growing babies kept their parents busy
finding food for them. It was then
that Jolly Robin learned to like angle
worms. And though he ate greedily of
insects and bugs, as well as wild ber
ries, he liked angleworms best. -
Jolly and his sister and his brothers
could always tell when their father

Sometimes, when the dainty w

would say. "Cue! Cuck!" That meant
"Open wide!" But they seldom found
it necessary to give that order.
Somehow, Jolly Robin managed to
eat more than the rest of the nest
lings. AndT so he grew faster than the
others. He soon learned a few tricks,
too. For Instance, if Mrs. Robin hap

ren. Jolly had a trick that he playeoTI
on his mother, in case she didn't move
off the nest to suit him.
He would whisper to the rest of the
children. And they would Jostle their
fond parent, lifting her lip above them
and sometimes almost upsetting hrr, so
that she had hard work to keep from
falling off the nest.
Mrs. Robin did not like that trick
very well. But she knew that Jolly
would not annoy her with it long. In
deed, he was only eleven days old when
he left his birthplace and went out in
to the wide world.
You see, the young folk grew so
fast that they soon more than filled
the house. So there was nothing their
parents could do but persuade them
to leave home and learn to fly.
One day, therefore, Mr. Robin did
not brini; his children's food to the
edge of the nest and drop it Into their
mouths. Instead, he stood on the limb
a little distance away from them and
showed them a plump angleworm.
The sight of that dainty was more
than Jolly Robin could resist. He
scrambled boldly -out of the nest; and
tottering up to his father on his wob

morsel out of his proud parent's
Jolly never went back to the nest
after that. The next day Mrs. Robin
coaxed the other children from home
in the same fashion. And though it
may seem a heartless act, It was really
