WH11HER DO WE DRIFT?
All men who have never made
mistakes were either fools or
without nerve enough to at
tempt anything. "There are
more things in heaven and
earth, Horatio, than are dreamt
of in your philosophy," would
apply nicely to matters temporal,
In manyw ays we are too impet
uous as a people and are liable to
make too many errors.
Take us as a people and we at
present, regardless of political
affiliations ': blindly advocate a
thing simply because President
Koosevelt sanctions or espouses
it Granting that our president
is all right (and he certainly is) ,
is it not possible that we may be
establishing precedents that will
menace at some future time our
peace -and harmony and our wel
fare as the psople of a republic?
We may not, in fact, the
chances are against our having
very soon another such person as
the first man of our nation.
President Roosevelt is ruggedly
honest and blunt, intensely patri
otic, and the personification of
strenuosity. All of these qual
ities inspire the confidence of the
masses and endear him to the
people and they are willing to
allow him almost unlimited pow'
er. This may be well in Roosc
velt's case, but how will it be
with his successor?
Autocracy might be an ideal
condition for us and we might
f are'very well under this form of
government were we assured
that President Roosevelt would
always be the autocrat, and tnat
he would ever remain the same
Roosevelt. But this is beyond
""""hope. "The successor of Presi
dent IRoosevelt may be his an
tithesis, therefore, it is the part
of wisdom to have a care regard
ing precedents which are estab-
. lished during his term of office
SHE IS NOT NEEDY.
With all respect to Miss Alice
Roosevelt it must be said that
to those who are keen lovers of
our republican form of govern
ment it cer ainly sounds queer to
hear this young lady referred to
as "Princess Alice." We won-
der how the term sounds to the
the young lady's father? Nor is
this all: Some cracked brained
fellow has conceived the idea
of. raising a dowry for "Princess
Alice" and proposes to make the
office of the state treasurer o:
Oregon the official vehicle for
trundling the scheme to a sue
We have no cause for fawning
before, nor aping nobility (?)
we have no need of any empty
titles in this country; by being
honest and earnest -men and
women, and living up to the
standards set by our better class
of citizens we may, indeed,
maice of ourselves ' princes and
princesses in reality and not be
associated with all the corruption,
immorality and emptiness which
titles stand for in the old world.
Miss Roosevelt is a good young
la'ly and we wish her the best
of everything, but she is no bet
ter nor more deserving than
thousands of other young ladies
in this country who have . not
had half her advautages. Far
'better and more charitable it
would be to start a subscription
list, not for a dowry for Miss
Roosevelt, but to provide dppor-
; tunity for other girls who are
every bit as good as she but who
have not received, and never
will enjoy, what Van world has
yielded the daughter of our
president. It is charity to give
to the needy and deserving.
Miss Roosevelt, although deserv
ing, is not needy.
If I should be given my
choice of either the office I now
hold or that of congressman from
the first district, it would not
take me a minute to decide to
stay right where I am," said
Circuit Judge Lawrence T. Har
ris, of the second judicial district,
who was registered at the . Im
perial, to a Telegram reporter a
few days ago. It was Jhdge
Harris, then speaker of the
house of representatives, who
gave Congressman Binger Her
mann such a close run for the
congressional nomination at the
Eugene convention in the fall of
1903. He has scores of friends
who believe he could be elected
it he were to enter the congres
sional race in the first district,
but he enters an emphatic "no."
' "I am out of politics altogether
now," he continued. "There is
nothing in it. A poor man has
no business in politics; much less
a man who has ambition to sue
ceed in any profession. Now ".
am in a position to develop in
my chosen profession. Were I
to go to congress, I would be ret

whereas, if I continue on the
bench of my district I will at

and practice law at any time.

Various . "Forest Industries
Bringing to a focus . the preparatory
work of the past six mouths, the Forest
Service is sending out question cards to
secure statistics of forest products. The
returns will be worked up jnto a report,
which will give by States, regions 'and
species the cut and shipments of lum
ber, shingles, laths, cooperage stock
ties, posts and poles during the year; the
stock on hand at the close of the year
and also the amount of wood used in the
various industries for ' which wood fur
nishes the raw material, and the value
of ' theproducts. 1 : . Circular ' fetters
manufacturers accompany the cards, ex-
plaining their use and object.
The vital importance of accurate, sta
tistics of forest products has , appealed
forcibly to manufacturers throughout the
country. , The National Lumber Mana
fact ui era' Association, and several other
associations of lumbermen and wood
users, are co-operating with the Forest
Service. During the sommer the ut
tnost pains has been taken to make the
investigation precise and practical to the
last detail. The question cards which
have resulted are clear and comprehen
sive, and may be filed out and returned
by the recipients mlh very little trouble.
It is quite plain that the success
this study now depends upon the care
ful assistance ot the industries concern
ed. In order that the returns may have
their full value to all, each individual
correspondent's card is necessary. The
returns will be regarded as strictly eon
tidential, and neither the name of the
correspondent uor the location of bis
mill will be made public by the Service
A copy ot the report, which is to be
published as a resultof the investigation
will be tent to all who till out the ques
tion cards and to others interested in the
use of forest products. .
