Johnson's administration would be "characterized by insin cerity, ruthlessness, autocratic action, demagogic proceedings, class legislation and disregard of constitutional direction," de clares Mr. Jordan. "His inability to deal with great questions re quiring broad-minded statesmanship and constructive ability would result in confusion, turmoil and disaster". Johnson's record as a republican is epitomized by Mr. Jordan as follows: In 1910, he registered as a republican to run for gov ernor. In 1912 he registered as a progressive, and prevented the rpniiblirans of California from votine for Taft. In 1914 he reeis- MThV3Afte1Sp?eMAtoEeiu'Sve1yitered as a progressive and defeated a republican for governor.

In 1915 he amended the presidential primary act so that any one calling for a republican ballot can vote for repub- Jican delegates, regardless of the party he i3 registered in. In 1916 he registered as a progressive, filched the senatorship from a republican, and failed to throw his support to Hughes, thus aid ing in losing the presidency to the republican party. In 1918, he registered as a republican, and in 1920 asks the republicans to elect him president. Johnson's "constructive" record as governor is assailed by Mr. Jordan as follows: Johnson, When elected, found $2,000,000 Portland. Indictments oa four counts, one of obtaining money by fl?e pretensps and three charging lar eeny by bailee, were returned against August Junge, former niunaKer of an auUntiubilc agency, by the Multnomah coumy grand jury Friday, junge was.,- h treasury above obligations, and 20 commissions, costinsr JrrtoS. a n.! wt" "073,000 a year. When he went out of office, he left 42 commis been traced by nhriff nuriburt afte'sions costing $2,500,000 a year. During his regime, the general a precipitate flight from this city. 'aonroDriations bill increased from $13,000,000 a year to $27,000.- 000. In a period when population increased 35 per cent, assessed valuation 00 per cent, state expenses increased 170 per cent. As to breaking the railroad control, Jordan declares that the railroads are better satisfied now than before Johnson started grandstanding after them. In-no way did Johnson assist' the women to secure votes, refusing to take a stand. California's highway development was inaugurated by Johnson's predecessor, who left a bond issue of $18,000,000 for Johnson to spend. His .reform of the ballot consisted in preventing republicans from placing the name of Taft on the ballot and permittng democrats to vote in republican primaries. ' Mr. Jordan might have supplemented Johnson's California jrecord by his record in the senate, where he was a left-handed .'supporter of the war, an. obstructionist and a champion of the Bolshevik", an opponent of the peawe treaty and an avowed enemy of the League of Nations. He is the most shining example of the unscrupulous, self-seeking demagogue in public life, appealing under the specious plea of Americanism" to all the avowed and latent enemies of the republic and rallying to his support the un- American and foreign elements of class hatred, discontent and anarchy. i That such a candidate Is seriously considered as a republican nominee for the presidency indicates the decadence of party pol itics and bodes ill for the future of party and nation, 7 HIS T&h& IF r. xjxj ira led u j Y ARTHUR SCOTT BAILEY A XEAT HOrSEKEKPER.

C. L., TLANT A GARDEN. While the individual may be powerless to lessen materially the cost of many essentials that go to make the high cost of living a burden, he can by economy, industry and thrift contribute ma terially to its reduction and if enough individuals solve their problems, they aid in solving those of the nation. rotatocs and garden produce are sky-high yet it is within the province of every individual to have his own garden and raise his own potatoes and produce at a nominal cost. If he has not land enough for a garden, there are hundreds of vacant lots that can be had for the asking. I During the war, nearly everyone had a "war garden", and ,tne gardens contributed materially to solving the household prob lems of food and expenditures, as well as the national problem of feeding-army and allies. Today these gardens are neglected Comparatively few people are industrious enough or frugal enough to have gardens and of course they pay the penalty al ways paid lor curtailing production, to the profiteers. I Workers of all classes today receive higher wages and labor snorter hours than ever in history. They have more leisure for garden work, but apparently less inclination to do it. It is easier to cuss the government for high prices than to go to work to cut down those prices by increasing production. Salem needs peace gardens more than it needed war gardens .Produce of all kinds brings prices prohibitive to the man of fam ily with small income. With sugar at 25 cents and berries and fruit in proportion, there will be little home-canning or preserv ing, jo make up tne deficiency, the home garden must come to ,1he rescue, and the wise and prudent man will utilize his leisure hours in reducing the high cost of living by planting a garden. If he fails to do so, he has only himself to blame, when he finds Jumsell in the conscienceless grip of the food profiteer. The Portland Oregonian cooperated in the nation-wide effort to economize on news print as usual with 110 page edition Sundav wasting enough paper to supply all the country papers in Ore gon lor a month. When enough people in Salem can be found to pay a dollar a minute in ten-minute clips for airship flights from dewy morn to shadowy eve, it bespeaks the prosperity of the people, if it does not indicate thrift and frugality. Almost as many 5 by 4 supreme court decisions as there are 3 by 2 congressional verdicts on the management of the war. Poindexter bases his hopes on "breaks" in the convention, but the breaks will all be against Toindexter. - Terfcct weather and blossom day in Salem-Nebraska. -snowiing again in Rippling Rhymes t , SPRING CHESTNUTS I fain would chant a song to spring, in soul-inspiring words; but of that theme one cannot sing and not refer to birds. And birds nre but a false alarm when all is said and done; if you have lived u)on a farm, you know they eat up mon. They scratch up seeds, and care no hoot that seedstuffs cost like sin; they spoil a lot of priceless fruit by recking holes therein. I cannot spring a vernal wheeze that with due passion throbs, but I must boost the springtime breeze that fans the thingumbobs. That lovely breeze along the street is smashing things today; it's spoiled a thousand miles of wheat by blowing soil away. It whoops and blithers till it's hoarse, and, while we stand and gaze, it may attain cyclonic force, and kill a score of jays. I can't transcribe my blissful dream of spring and all its joys, without some mention of the stream that makes a babbling noise. Said stream has overflow ed its banks and drowned a thousand sheep, and farmers stand, in mournful ranks, and rear and swear and weep. LOVE and MARRIED LIFE By the Noted Author IDAII McGLONE GIBSON ever Rusty heard that second kind of chirp he was always careful to find some errand that took him away from home. You see, Rusty Wren was not so orderly as his wife. Often he scatter ed things about the house in a very careless fashion. For Instance, if he happened to notice a bit of moss or a buri- clinging to his coat, Just as likely as not he would brush it off and let It fall upon the floor. And when Mrs. Rusty found anything like I that in her cottage, she always knew how it came mere. Rusty sometimes remarked that it was a good thing he didn't smoke. "How would you like it if I drop ped bits of tobacco, or ashes, and maybe burnt matches for you to pick up?" he asked his wife. "Tou couldn't come inside my house if you used tobacco," she al-waj-s replied. And she would get quite excited at the mere thought of such an untidy habit And then Rusty would smile but he always took good care not to let his wife see him. "Don't worry!" he would say, if she became too stirred up. "I've never smoked yet and I never expect to." One can see that Rusty Wren was somewhat of a tease. And as it usual ly happens with people who amuse themselves at the expense of others, there came a time when Rusty's teasin? landed him in trouble. One day after he had come home ffpm an excursion to the pasture (he seldom strayed so far from home as that!) Mrs. Rusty began sniffing Jhe air. Her nose would have wrinkled only it couldn't, because it was so hard. And it seemed to her that he had a guilty manner. "I declare," she said, "I believe you've been smoking." And she start ed to scold so angrily that Rusty Wren knew she must be in a temper. Seeing signs of trouble, Rusty be gan to fidget. And he moved about so uneasily that his wife was all the sur er of his guilt. She stopped right in the middle of her scolding to say, "I smell smoke!" "Perhaps you do," Rusty admitted "But it's certainly not tobacco smoke." "Ah!" she exclaimed. "Then you've been smoking corn-silk, or hayseed and that's almost as bad." But Rusty said that it must be the smoke of a pine stump that she no ticed. "Farmer Green is burning- some old stumps in the pasture," he ex plained. "And I flew through a cloud of it." Just then he happened to notice a bit of something or other clinging to one of his tail feathers. And though his wife was looking straight at him, he flicked the tiny scrap upon the floor, without thinking what he was doing. "There you go again!" Mrs. Rusty When cried. "Here I've Just finish ed cleaning the house and you're lit tering it all up! You don't care how much work you make for me." And she pounced upon the brownish bit, intending to pick it up and throw out of the house. Rusty had already decided that he had better go. away from home for a little while, until things were pleas anter, when his wife suddenly faced about and fixed him with her glitter ing eyes. MONDAY, APRnj 25 she cried, hoj. "Ha!1 scrap in her bil i . T 5 6, -co!" she i looacco:- she whs pray, have you to r now?

He liked .my Independence. Why, before we were married he used to thnrono-htv oniov discussions of almost any subject with me ana i win say that he showed a respect ror my mental powers that made me feel that he quite as his equal. We were com rades, but immediately upon our mar riage I became only a possession, and he began to make me over Into some thing that he would have despised af ter he had finished the transforma tion." Chrales looked at me In great sur prise. "Katherlne." he said. "rff ntk women feel as you do?" A majority of them do," I said. "There are women, ltkn .tnhn1. DiofOH of phlegmatic 'temperaments, who go ii in tranquility, marking out new avenues of interest for themselves and keeping their own lives separate from the life that they live with their hus band. There are other women whose sole comfort and hope Is in their children. These women are like Ruth Gaylord. I think Ruth Is happier now that she is separated from Bob ble than she was before. There is still another class like Helen. A woman of this class is so desperately in love with her husband that she is willing to become slave, or a plaything, Just as he wishes. This type of a woman Is never happy, so more so than I, al though John satisfies all my prim itive emotions, he outrages me fem inine ego every moment I am with him, Itensnn for Unhapplncss. "Either the woman of today has grown too large a brain or man has not yet learned that femininity is something more than one of his ribs. One or the other of these is the rea son for many unhappy marriages." "All of which," said Charles with a smile, "gets us nowhere in par ticular, I seem to recall that we start ed for that oil gusher In Texas, at least you had us on our way." "I beg your pardon, Charles. I wasn't thinking of starting for Texas I was thinking only ot your going." "Well, of course, I will go If you send me," he said, "for when was the time that I did not do your bidtllng since you were old enough to audibly bid." I laughed. "Am I such a tyrant," I asked. "Do you, too, Charles, think that I want my own way to the ex clusion of everything else? Am I one of those exziant females who always want to be It?" "No," answered Charles slowly, "but I think you want your full share in the 'it' business. If I may criticize, Katherlne, I will say that perhaps you were not clever enough to keep this fact from the sex whose members imagine that they are the lords of creation." Sudden Light Breaks "Oh," I said, a sudden light break ing in on me, "then the trouble with me Is that I am too frank, too sin cere. Perhaps you are right, Charles. The more I think of it, the more I think you are, but alas I must be frank with myself and sincere with my husband." I said this with animat ed quaking of my heart, because I knew that what Charles had said was true. If I could be insincere with John, if I .could Just act as though I believed everything he said and did was right, I could do anything I wish ed to do. If I allowed htm to think that he was doing things his own way, he would be perfectly content. In other words, if I had treated him as his mother did, when she arrang ed with the shopkeepers to put over charges on his bill and give her the money; or as did Elizabeth Moreland when she made him. think that he was still the only man In her life while she was carrying on two or three other flirtations, I would prob ably live a more peaceful, if not con tented life. As it was, I was fighting the eter nal battle of the sexes In my own way, and in my own way I could fight until the end. What the end would be i could not see.

Thousands ves millions of people find themselves in this condition early in life. And there is no excuse for it You can check that tendency to grow old.
