The Salem Journal discovers
the following weakness in its
contemporary, the Statesman:
The criticisms of the Salem
Statesman on the nomination of
Governor Cummins for another
term are manifestations of a
weakness of certain elements of
the Republican party. That
clement gets cold chills, and is
thrown into much fear and
trembling when anyone inside
the party proposes to do any
thing in the direction of reform.
That diseased portion of the
Republican party which prede
cates the party's existence upon
graft rather than upon fearless
performance of duty, is espec
ially sensitive upon tariff revis
ion. Governor Cummins of
Iowa has been a consistent ad
vocate of tariff revision from the
agricultural standpoint, and his
nomination means that a time
shall be set when the present
tariff shall bo overhauled. Tar
iff revision is always an issue
among intelligent Republicans.
The only room for difference is
when it shall be undertaken.
One Republican tariff revision
succeeds another, and that is
proper. Iowa is a great, pros
perous and intensely Republican
commonwealth. The voters
there had a long time to delib
erate whether the time is ripe
for tariff revision, and have de
cided that it is. Why should a
Republican paper in Oregon,
-where the party has not been
able to elect a Republican gov
ernor in two elections, say to
the Republican party of Iowa,
you have gone wrong?' It is a
manifestation of a diseased po
litical condition, rather than
criticism of Governor Cummins
and the Republican platform of
Iowa, that calls down the pos
sibility of defeat on a party of
progress. The time may not
have come for tariff revision.
In Oregon there is not much
demand for revising the tariff.
But when it is revised it will be
well for the country if the work
is done by progressive men.
The warfare of President Roose
velt and the progressive leaders
of the Republican party in curb
ing the trusts may not be ap
preciated by the people, but
there are no signs so far that
such is the case. The National
Republican party committee pre
fers to rest its case on the ag
gressive performances of Roose
velt end the leaders of the Cum
mins type, to parading the
Btand-pat theories of Mark Han
ria, et al. But the Statesman's
attacks on Iowa Republicans are
so as before said manifestations
rather than earnest and honest
efforts at criticism.

When he had completed the
building he considered for a long

attract attention to the new estab

struck him. He bored an auger
hole through the doorpost and
stuck a calf's tail into it with the
tufted end outside.
After a while he saw a solemn
faced man standing near the door
looking at the sign, his eyes in a
round, meditative stare behind his
spectacles. The tanner watched
him a minute, then stepped out
and addressed him.
Good morning, sir," he said.

Oregon Greatest Lumber State
The forests of the upper Missis
sippi valley, of the Great Lakes
region and of the Southern Btates
have furmehed lumber for genera
tious to the treeless prairies of the
West and the denuded lands of the
East. But the saw is cutting deep
into the last of the tall timber of
the North and more and more sun
liiftit. it being lot in upon the South
land. Prices for northern white
pine and southern yellow pint
have risen in the last few years by
leaps and bounds. The lumber
dealer of the East has turned bis
eyes to a new source of supply
As a result, Portland, Oregon, in
the centi-r of the Great American
Forest, has become the greatest
lumber city in the union, far out
stripping Minneapolis and Port
land is but at the threshold of its
great industry. Oregon is the
greatest lumber state in the union.
During the next generation, and eo
far as one may judge, for all time,
Portland is to hold its supremacy
as the largest fcawmill city. The
national hunger for lumber grows
year by year, and Portland com
mands the gate to the forest.
