HAD GOOD INFLUENCE.
Governor Cummins had a good
effect on the republicans at large
when he attempted- to create
mutiny in the ranks, for instead
of winning them from the party
to his own particular views he
but cemented and bound them;
closer to the ranks. Open rebel
lion and antagonism is in a man
ner a safe-guard, and it is only
in times of peace that there is
danger of the enemy stealing in
to the party and corrupting the
loyalty of ics members.
In his Lrspectacular efforts not
long ago to win the republicans
away from their principles the
erratic governor of Iowa but
acted as a beacon light pointing
the right and wrong paths that
they should trod and they are
keeping right in the straight and
narrow way. This eccentric
governor has undertaken to re
form the tariff and yet pose as a
republican. The tariff rates and
schedules, are on republican prin
, ciples pure and simple and is
very acceptable to republicans.
The Dingley tariff is the work
of republicans and is good enough
for them; they will stand by it;
they believe in it just as it is,
and the efforts of Governor Cum
mins will but make them stick
the closer. .
' If the governor expects to se
cure a following he will have to
declare himself other than a re
publican- On the lines suggested
by thjs gentleman he would do
well to look to the democrats
and if he would be very success'
ful we suggest that he become
one of that party. Reformed in
tne sense tnat uummins: and
others of his way of thinking
want it reformed it will not be
until the country at large de-
clares against protection and the
PROMISE TO OBEY.
If the railroad magnates make
their word good there is promise
of a "square deal'' for the people
at the hands of the various rail.
roads of the country. It seems
too good to be ; true. Y Several
weeks ago it was reported that
the managements of nearly all
the railroads east of Chicago and
St. Louis had decided to confer
-with the interstate com
merce commission, thus hold
ing out the olive branch to the
government, j ' -
. We now learn that those lines
which are west of Chicago and
St. Louis have decided to join
hands with the movement for
the public good. The railroad
people declare themselves thor
oughly in earnest, and " if the
commission is in accord it really
looks as though the death knel
had been sounded for freight re
bates, preferential rebates, and
various discriminating Tacts -of
railroad people for or against
various classes of our. citizens,
Should this come about, as there
is now 'ground for hoping that it
will, we must thank President
Roosevelt more than any other
man for our emancipation. .

''The rock oyster is fonnd only
on the coasts of Spain : and of
Oregon. At Yaquina Bay, a
favorite summer resort of Ore
gonians digging rock oysters is a
regular pastime. In the early
morning, before the sun is higta
crowds armed with picks and
shovels wend their . way to the
famous rock oyster beds. Pro
fessor Condon, the state geologist
of Oregen, says of the rock oyster:
Its scientific name is ' Pho'.as.
Like alt bivalves, it has right and
ten vaives, eacn naving- on its
middle portion a triangular rasp
like valve.' It is ' this rasp-like
organ that enables it to excavate
and keep its burrow open. The
rasp is not hard enough of itself
to cut; the rock, but the hard
quartz sand that rests in the folds
of the rasp gradually wears away
the stone as fast as needed, cor
responding v with the. growth of
the oyster."'.':; When the eggs are
hatched in the sea water, they
look like small, patches of jelly
fish, and for several days swim
about without lines of their future
shells forming about them. By
instinct each looks for a vacant
spot on a rock surface, and when
found, he backs against it and
goes into" business. . They are
preferred to all other bivalves for
the tableland as they are found
only in one place on the coast 01
Spain and at Yaquina, they are
an unparalled attraction."
