son. NO SEX IN MILITARISM.
Women, No Less Than Men, Have the
(From The North American Review.)
Certainly the eminent women sover
eigns of history have contributed their
full share to the warfare of the world.
Semiramis of Assyria and Jingo of Ja
pan, if wq go back to semilegendary
ages, were chiefly famed for their bel
ligerence. Zenobia of Palmyra and
Bo'adicea of Britain were not advo
cates of "peace at any price."
Elizabeth of England, Catherine of
Russia, Maria Theresa of Austria and
Hungary, Anne of England, Christina
and Isabella of Spain, all had reigns
marked with many wars. Of even Vic
toria the Good it was said at her Ju
bilee that there had been a war for
every year of her long reign.
Nor have nonrei?ning women al
ways arrayed themselves on the side of
peace or of nonresistance. From the
time of Miriam and her maidens to
the present women have exulted in
the triumphs of battle and have incit
ed their menfolk to pugnacity. From
Joan of Arc to Molly pitcher they
have, on occasion, taken strenuous
lead in actual conflict; for which the
world honors them. It has long been
notorious that France's Mexican war.
resulting in Maximilian's tragedy, was,
the direct result of the intrigues of i
Empress Eugenie and "Poor Carlotta."
The matrons of Imperial Home, the
women of the M edicts and Bourbons,
were never exponents of peaceful hu
manftarlanism. The women of the
French revolution were as bloodthirsty
as the men.
Nor does the disposition of women
In our own day reverse the record of
history. One of the features of our
civil war upon which the whole na
tion looks with most pride was the
day In when the women, both north
and south, displayed militant teal and
elf -sacrifice, urging their brothers,
husbands, sons and lovers to enlist In
the army, and scoring as cowards un
worthy of their regard those who
would not do so. It was one of the
foremost pioneers of the movements
for women's emancipation who wrote
"The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
In Europe today the same rule holds
good. The women of every eeJlUrerent
land. Including many of the foremost
suffragists, are urging the men to en.
list, and o fight the war out to the
bitter end. There is not In- history,
nor in contemporary observation, any
disproof of the poet's saying that "the
female of the species Is more deadly
than the male." At least In the hu
man species she Is fully as militant as
he. There Is no sex in militarism.
LARGE SUMS PAID WORKERS.
Calls on Accident Fund Gains With

fatal cases and for workmen suffering
permanent disabilities, $97,880.65 was

juries, and $55,858.81 was the cost of
surgical treatment, transportation and
The entire cost of administration

missioners began their work, was $59,

$179,074. At that time 3663 claims
had been made and 3305 settled. The
commission rejected 132 claims and
paid physicians' fees in 716 cases in
which the Injured persons did not

NEW FOOD MEASURES
IMPROVEMENT OF INSANITARY
CONDITIONS 3IADE POSSIBLE.
Sidewalk Display of Food Is Prohib
ited, Except Where Show Cases
Some food venders will have to
make several changes in their methods
of operation in order to comply with
the new laws. The most important of
all Is the new sanitary law which pro
vides for certain sanitary restrictions
in every place where food products
are handled. It gives the commission
er power to close any establishment
that is unclean, insanitary or un
healthful. Sidewalk display of food is prohib
ited, except in show cases. Exception
Is made in the case of food products
that necessarily have to be peeled,
pared or cooked before they are fit
All meat, while being hauled
through any street or thoroughfare,
must be covered with a clean cover,
All places where food products are
handled must be thoroughly screened
and sleeping in the kitchen of the lit
tle restaurant or other establishment
where food is prepared is prohibited.
The law provides that no animal that
is past the three-fourths period of
pregnancy shall be slaughtered for
food purposes. Hogs shall not be fat
tened on uncooked offal and If kept or
fed in the vicinity of any slaughter
house, shall be kept 150 feet away.
'Filthy' is one term used in defin
ing condition under which foods shall
be deemed adulterated. 'Filthy' Is de
fined in the same section as applying
to 'food not securely protected from
files, dust, dirt and as far as may be
necessary, by all reasonable means
from all foreign or injurious contam
ination.' Any police or peace officer,
whether city, town, county or state
officer, is given authority to enter any
place where food products are han
dled and report conditions to the dis
The standard for total solids in
milk is reduced from 9 per cent to
8.5 per cent. Heretofore the only
standard for butter was that which
provided a maximum moisture content
of 16 per cent. The new law provides,
In addition to the moisture standard,
a minimum of 80 per cent of pure
The law also defines creamery but
ter, dairy butter, storage butter, re
worked butter, and renovated butter
and specifies how each shall be Libel
ed. All butter must have the place
of manufacture and the net weight on
the wrapper, In addition to the words,
'Oregon Creamery Butter,' 'Dairy But
ter,' 'Storage Butter,' as the case may
be. . Dairy butter must have in addi
tion the name of the manufacturer.
If butter is manufactured outside of
the state it must have on each wrap
per the name of the place of manufac
ture or the place from which It is
consigned or shipped. Any person
receiving batter from outside of the
state must report the same to the com
missioner. The device known as the
Oregon State Brand is abolished and
its use after January 1, 1916, is un
lawful. All persons selling medicinal stock
foods, tonics, or regulators intended to
be fed to livestock or poultry must
take out a license after January 1,
1916, and packages must be truly la
beled. All persons purchasing milk or
cream except those doing so for pri
vate purposes, must have a license to
do so and must employ a licensed
tester to test the product.
Substitute house bill No. 226 pro
vides that all eggs shall be branded
on the case, box or carton with the
name of the state or province where
All food and drink manufacturers
and vendors using foreign or eastern
eggs in their products must erect a
sign three feet in length and six inches
in height, and persons selling foreign
eggs must erect signs six feet in
length and one foot in height. Every
cake or pie containing any foreign
egg must also be labeled.
House bill 294 provides for about
the same placarding of all places
where foreign meat is offered for sale
as is provided for eggs.
Correct labeliai? of all food pro
ducts, giving the consumer knowledge
of the contentse, Is made necessary by
the new law, and concoctions of ether,
coal tar dye, glucose and other sub
stances can no longer be sold as ex
tracts, soda waters, syrups, jellies or
other food or drink unless they are
