SOUTHERN OREGON ON
REMOVAL OF CAPITAL
To be serious about the proposed
removal of the capital u Portland,
there cannot be the least doubt
that plenty of signers can be bad
under the initiative law to get ft
vote on it, just as the same thing
can be done to have a vote of a
bounty of two-bits paid on every
coou skin or jack-rabbit scalp
taken in the state, and there would
be lots of votes for both proposi
tions. The initiative and referen
dum law is a wouderfully accom
modating measure when It works to
suit you. But it don t always do
that and Portland will find that
out in some bitter experience yet.
Salem is a kind of under dog iu

but they will not go so far they
cannot unite later and may again
try to do up the rest of the state
under the leadership of a demagog
ic governor and Editor Scott in
damaging the system of public
education and paralyzing the state
government, so that it cannot pay
its honest debts to JSormal school
teachers, as is the case now. Not
"everyone knows that Portland is
the central point of Oregon." It is
less so than Salem, . but both are
out of the way and expensive to
reach, for most of the state. For
the. reasons stated by The Ore
gonian as warranting a removal of
the capital, when the Btate has the
railroads that are sure to be built
and with the help of irrigation has
acquiied a large population, the
capital will be moved to Prineville
or some other point really central
as to the whole state. That time
is a lone way off and in the mean
time, if Salem desires protection
from Portland, and she needs the
help of yotes. let her- square her
self with the re6t of the state as to
several mattetsv notably in helping
to nlace the state in a position to
pay its debts and giving reasonable
and liberal sapport to the state's
educational institutions as they
are now located. ABhland Tidings.

The charge to the pastor was given

The Autumn Hat
You can't help feeling interested,
no matter what vour position
life, in the tilt oi the autumn hail
If you are very emotional ami-
somewhat susceptible to beauty in v
hats and in their wearers you say
the "tilt" of the autumn hat.
Some o them are dreams, 60ng
and poems, there is no denying.
And now and then there is ont
that may be more aptly described
in the less delicate term "peach."
But they tip, they tilt, they dip
and bend in a bewildering way.
To plunge to the front or to one
side while they rear in the back or
at the other side is the chief char
acteristic of the new hats. In fact,
it is by this trick that you know J
them, and you must admire then-
for it if you expect to remain in tho
good graces of the lady wearers.
