IS IT WISE?
The conviction that Russia has
not yet suffered enough defeat
grows upon one. - This conviction
is followed by the thought that
President Roosevelt is a little
premature, though with the best
possible intent, in his efforts for
peace. We have contended, not
without a horror of war in all its
hellishness, that there will be no
lasting peace between Russia and
Japan until mastery beyond ques
tion has been thoroughly estab
lished by war io the bitter end.
For other nations' chief execu
tives and rulers to intervene and
force peace will bring about a
cessation of hostilities and little
else. Until one of the nations
themselves are fully vanquished
on the field of battle, and ac
knowledges the fact, there will be
no lasting peace. If obliged by
other nations to end the war both
Russia and Japan will watch each
other eternally and secret prepa
rations will be the order of the
day with both powers.
Roosevelt, great and good man
that he is, is doing all in his
power for the honor of this na
tion to negotiate peace, but the
wisdom of this proceeding is a
doubtful quantity. While we, as
a people, one and all, deplore the
awful sacrifice of human life, it
may be best to have' the matter
fully settled now on the principle
that one war is cheaper than two.
Norway in seceding from the
"Sweden-Norway union claims the
right to do so under the terms of
the compact under which the
two nations have been bound. It
is stated that they applied to
King Oscar of Sweden to sup
ply tnem one or. his sons as a
kingf or Norway.
This Oscar refused to do, claim.
ing that were he to do so he
would be attacking his own title,
as he still holds that he is king of
Norway as well as Sweden. It
seems that it would be a good
thing, and a wise one, for . Nor
way to settle down on" the basis
f a republic. All nations . are
drifting in this direction and ulti
mately the powers of Europe
will adopt this plan of govern
ment. There is no excuse for
any other governmental form.
To declare there is reflects upon
the intelligence of the common
people of a nation. -
If the people of any country
are enlightened according to
20th century standards they are
capable of self-government. If
they are unfit to the task of self
rule they are benighted and must
.have some person or power be
' yond their own choosing to guide
thenu They are incapable of
; Norway is, we believe, fully
capable of managing her affairs
as a republic and the" best thing
to do is to start a republic and
stick to it on these lines

Movement Started " by Willam
ette Valley Development
The rnovtinent for goveinment
ownership of the Oregon City
Locks was started good and strong
at the meeting or the Willamette
Valley Development league in
Independence last week and there
will be do let up in the agitation.
People of Wil -::;e tj-valvey can
not afford it, li. is an uiatrage that
'50 cents a ton on tvery article pro
duced' should be taxed up against
farmers and manufactures in this
valley because of a little obstruc
tion in the river at Oregon City.
, Since the meeting the-Portland
Telegram has interviewed a num
ber of transportation people i n
Here are some of the interview?:
Captain' James Shaver, of the
Shaver Transportation Company
do not tnmlc the Uregon City
Canal and locks Should be tied up
by private ' interests, which . use
water for adjacent mills and often
leave the channels shallow, to
the detriment of steamers. Gov
ernment ownership would mean
that they would be : placed in
good shape and always naviga
ble. . . -
Herbert Holman, of the Kel
log Transportation . Company I
don't see why the Gavernment
maintains locks at the Cascades,
and not on the Willamette. . This
river is entitled to the locks, as
well as the Columbia. . ' -
Captain E. W. Spencer, ol
The Dalles Navigation Company
I have waited just 25 years -for
such a move. It would mean
the ta would be removed on
every bushel of wheat and other
products of the valley and thus
help every one. Most emphatic
allv I favor Government owner
'Manager Graham, of the Yel-i
low "Stack Line The residents
of the Willamette Valley - be
tween Portland and Eugene pay
in the neighborhood of $100,000
each year as tonage at the locks.,
Whether the freight goes by rail or
water tue rates for transportation
are on the same basis, hence the
shippers and consignees must
shouldeT a portion of the tax of
50 cents a ton. , Government
ownership would obliterate this
50 cent tax and it would reduce
freight charges just that much
They are the only locks in the
United States covering the same
amount 01 water tnat have sa
heavy a tax. -
Captain George Conwav, super
intendent or the O. R. & N; wa
ter lines xne tnrouen tax on
freight is 50 cents a ton and 2 ;
cents on that loaded at the mills.
To make the locks free mieht
possibly invite .competition on
the upper river, . but that would
not hurt anv one. '
D. C O'Reilly, of the Diamond
O. Line The free use of the
locks would help Portland, the
valley and state at large. The
tax handicaps the river lines and
retards the development of the
upper valley and river business.

Curious Bird Ways.
But how birds know when to go,
and which way'to turn, are things
not yet well understood, because
the flights are at night and thk
great -movements start a long
time before it really becomes nec
essary for the birds to go.- They
leave their winter homes (perhaps
in Mexico) when there is no per
ceptible change in the weather
and return from . their breeding
grounds in most cases while their
food supply is at its very height
long before it is coldVor the grass
and weed seeds and insects begin
to get scarce; - In many cases, too,
the young birds of the year, who
have never left their homes be
fore, lead the long procession in
the great southward flight and are
followed later by their parents.
