GOOD OR BAD?-,
As time drags on men con
tinue to appear in the open and
announce their candidacy for of
fice. Some, who aspire to the
state legislature are voluntarily
placing themselves on record as
willing 'o support the people's
choice of a United States senator
should they become a member of
the legislative body of Oregon.
Others who are out for office do
not hesitate' to declare against
such pledge and some very good
reasons are advanced by these
men. . It is easy to see that the
legislators might be called upon
to ratify the people's choice of a
man to serve Oregon in the 'Unit
ed States senate and be pain
fully aware that such man was
the choice of the people not on
account of his good character
and qualifications, but on account
of popularity and shrewdness.
Another reason why some men
hesitate to pledge themselves to
ratify the choice of the people
for United States senator is that
the constitution of our great
country makes plain the manner
in which said senator shall be
elected and our legislators in
taking oath of office swear to
support the constitution. Until
there is an amendment of the
con titution whereby the people
of all the states of the union
shall elect their senators direct,
at naturally follows that either
state law or the constitution
must be disregarded.
AH 01 these matters are very
perplexing; there it much specu
lation as to whether or not our
political affairs will be in better
shape or better conducted this
year than they were under the
old regime. The safety of the
republic lies in the people, but the
people often make mistakes as is
evidenced by the fact that some
times a certain thing carries on
popular vote to be turned down
later when ihe- same people have
become wiser. It seems that the
only safe thing to do is to give
our new election laws a "square
deal" during the coming primary
and general elections so that we
may satisfy ourselves whether or
not they are an improvement
over the laws in force during the
THEY DO NOT KNOW.
Speaking of things and mat
ters that are being guessed at by
tariff reformers, among whom
Governor Cummins, of Iowa, is
conspicuous, the Burlington
Governor Cummins says his
idea of a protective tariff is one
high enough to cover the extra
cost of production of an article in
the United States over the cost
production in the old world. If
a manufactured article cost $1-50
for production in this country
and : LOO in the eld world, the
tarilL should be 50 cents. This
wou x allow the home manuiact
urer to compete with his foreign
rivals on an equal footing.
Why 50 cents? How may it be
known whether that figure is too
hi vh, too low cr just right?
There are several points to be
1. The invoice price cf the
imported article may not be of
the same standard ot value as a
similar article made in this coun
try. 2. If 50 cents was the differ- j
ence. in the cost of production, j
the cost of transportation must
be added. This would apparent
ly make the Governor's tariff
higher than necessary, according
to his standard.
3. If 50 cents is neither too
high nor too low to equalize the
cost of the home-made and
the imported product then
where is the protection? For it
is obvious the foreign-made arti
cle could enter our marts and
compete with the home-made
article upon a footing of equal
ity. ; Then would follow the veri
fication of William McKinley's
admonition that every blow
struck by foreign labor in the
production of that article means
one less blow by American labor
in the production of the ' Amer
ican article, ; and every dollar
paid foreign workmen means less
wages paid American workmen.
There, is no escape from these
, Then why 50 cents? In other
words, how does - Governor Cun
mins know that is the true meas
ure by which to guage the sched
ule of tariff rates in this country?
The truth is he does not know,
and the learned revision editors
do not know what they are writ
ing or talking about. : They phil
osophize about a theory; they ig
nore practical facts and seem to
despise human experience.
FOUR WERE KILLED.

his train from crashing into the

the disabled injector pipe which
was responsible for the wreck.
The porter of the Walla Waila

saw the approaching train and
jumped. He is the only one on

They too escaped by rolling off
The Pullman car was smashed
to smithereens, and the entire

the Pullman car were jammed
forward under the car ahead.
The engine of No. 5 remained

No woman can look beautiful without
good health. A woman's - good health
depends on those organs peculiarly femi
nine, and which so often become" disor
dered, causing misery and dragging-down
pain. Nature's laws are perfect, health
endures if you obey them, but disease
follows disobedience. The distressing
complaints of women are often brought
about by catching cold at a critical
period, breathing foul indoors' air and
long hours of work and nervous tension.
Go straight to Nature for the cure to
the forest. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription is Xature's cure for the dis
tressing complaints of women. Prof.
King, 51. D., in his American Dispensa
tory, says of Black Cohosh or Black
Snake-root "our early American In
dians set a high value on this root in
diseases of women. It is surpassed by
no other drug, in congestive conditions
of the parts where there are dragging
pain and tenderness.''
Lady's Slipper root is a "nerve stimulant
and tonic, improving both circulation and
nutrition of the nerve centers favoring
sleep and cheerful condition of the mind;
of service in mental depression, nervous
headache, irregularities of women with
despondency." Prof. King. Besides the
above ingredients there are Golden Seal,
Unicorn and Blue Cohosh roots in Dr.
Pierce's Favorite Prescription.
Dr. Pieroe's Common Sense Medical
Adviser will be sent free, paper-bound, for
21 one-cent stamps, or cloth-bound for 31
stamps. Over 1000 pages and illustrated.
Address Dr. E, V. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y.
Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets should be
used with "Favorite Prescription " when- i
ever a laxative is required.

American farmers to cultivate Ginseng.
Big profits are realized. It is easily
grown." A bulletin by the Pennsylvania
State College says: "The 'supply of
native Ginseng Root is rapidly diminish
ing and the price per pound is correspond
ingly increasing, while the constant de
maud for the drug in China stands as a
guarantee of a steady market for Ginseng
in the future." American Consul General
Wildman at Hong Kong writes: "There
will be little difficulty in disposing on
this coast of all the Ginseng that is grown
Ginseng is a staple on the market the
same as corn, wheat and cotton. The
present market price varies from 6.00 to
$8.x per pound, while the cost of pro
duction is less than $1.50. There is room
in one's garden to grow several hundred
dollars worth each year. The plant can
be grown throughout the United States
and Canada in any soil or climate that
