HER OWN FAULT.
' To those who have made a
.study of Russia and her history
. the present state of affairs fail
to excite surprise to any great
extent. In fact, as one disaster
after another became a portion
' o t' the czar and , his people, the
reading public .; of the world at
large: settled down and viewed
the matter in a most philosophic
manner. . ' . . ,V ' ' .
On the outbreak of hostilities
a little more than a year ago,
- bat few could be. found bold
enough to back the sons of the
Flowery Kingdom to win. Russia
was too powerful; they said. We
are a firm believer in the ever
lasting fitness of things, and
Russia Was unfit; 1 Her form of
government ; : was i bad to start
with and those ' to whom affairs
of '''state'" were-1 entrusted have,
during ' a 'loftg term ' .of years,
"become more, and more corrupt.
.. qryearsit. has been a cse.of
"big 'fish eat s little-fish" ? right
along the -line from the czar
ddwi.'V-"he, Mgh official "made
demands upon the one next be
neath him, and so on, until the
little fish was reached. Every
thing ; was for ; God and the .czar
" mostly for -the czar, and un
2odlv means were resorted to
in order to , accomplish .this end,
'The 'individuality of the peo
ple' was smothered; on account
of ho educational institutions for
the children of the common peo-
. pie, illiteracy was on every hand ;
. national pride under such condi
tions naturally i fell into decad
' ence; individual hope: and nation
al, pride have died and with them
patriotism.-Having nothing to
iive for, what mattered it to the
Russian in battle whether he lived
or died, i W in or lose ne , was
no better off, and he went to war
with the' 'same' kind of fire and
spirit that inspires an ox. ' r jj
On every hand almost was cor7
ruptidri,1 if half we read be true,"
and ' for inany long years the ac
counts of the policy of the1 Rus
. sian , Empire have contained much
of a sameness. .Those who had
the brains and courage to rebel
against; an unbearable condition
either lost their necks or took up
a residence of considerable dura
tion.in Siberia -; , v : ',- .
Little by little have the mills
of the gods ' ground hi thiscase,
but finer and finer.' And today
the "Little Father" of all Rus
sia is not only confronted : by
; almost certain - def eat at t the
' hands of a foreign foe, -but his
own children are turning against
him. - What else could ' be ex-
pected ? Whb is to blame ?
DO NOT REVISE.
! , Some men seem to be of the
opinion that .tariff revision is
- largely an agreement - among lo
calities. They declare that cer
tain corrections are necessary
' and can be executedjwithout any
disturbance . of business and with
verylittle ado in congress. .' . ;
Far from it ! Herein is ; the
great difficulty. , The, fact that
locality needs or' demands; enter
into the question of ' tariff re vis-
ion is what really makes it most
difficult to handle. If, for - in
stance the producer of. a certain
article in- the4' East is to be given
free trade in the raw material he
requires, people in the West are
almost certain to demand free
trade in the finished product.
' The West also wants a - reduc
tion of tariff on certain, manu
factures notably in the steel and
. iron schedules. -- The latter inter
ests would in' turn demand a - re
duction in the agricultural sched-ules-So
it is readily seen- that
' the matter of tariff revision can-1
not be figured on and settled ac-
cording to the demands, require-
ments, or. .-needs -
of the various
localities, i ?
The attempt to harmonize these
local differences will only: : pro-
,. , 1 i 1

agreement among localities could
ever be reached ?
If an agreement between these
localities is so desirable, and so
extremely necessary, there is but
one thing ' worthy of trial and
that is to let the matter of tariff
revision sleep, for awhile. It is
of too vital importance to handle
lightly- Bear in mind that it is
inevitable that lower tariffs are
followed by lower wages- ;
WHY NOT DJ IT?
It seems to be definitely set
tied that the grounds of the Lewis
and Clark Fair are not to be open
to the public on Sundays- With
out commenting in the least on
the - wisdom of this decision, it
mignt be in-order to turn our
attention in another ? direction
and profit thereby.
Why .could not arrangements
be made. for a regular Sunday ex
cursion to be run out of Port
land and up the West Side to
Corvallis, thence across toAl-
bany and down the East Side to
Portland ? Or vice versa, for
that matter. If the railroad offi
cials took up the matter and went
at it with a will there is not the
least doubt but they could carry
1,000 excursionists over this route
every Sunday, particularly if they
made a satisfactory rate. " - .
Make a regular excursion sched
ule and call the route. the ''Wil
lamette Valley Loop," or some
other appropriate name. While
Portland is entertaining so many
thousand - visitors a large train-
load could be found every Sabbath
who would , not go to church if
they i, were , in Portland, so why
not make a pull for something
like this ? " Portland is far- from
a ."dry" town and some of those
denied ; an .excursion i might be
the. "worsev for wear" if they
remained.in the metropolis-
This would be a great adver
tising,; scheme .for the valley
Everything would be at its best
at this , season ot tne year ana
by rthis . arrangement the S. P
could make a good sum and mater
ially assist in showing our guests
what a considerable ' portion1 of
the state is like. .
