TO CET MILITARY COMPANY.
Five Additional Companies Re
quired by the Government for
Fourtn Oregon Regiment.
With the passage by the sen
ate a short time ago of the Army
bill, the way is paved for the es
tablishment in Oregon of a num
ber of new -military companies.
In order to bring the Fourth Ore
gon regiment up to a regular
army basis as required by the
war department, it will be neces
sary to recruit nve additional
Applications from almost every
thriving city in the state are be
ins received at Portland bv Ad
jutant Gen. Finzer. The task of
picking out the stations is yet to
be taken up by the Oregon mili
The desirability and advantage
of being the station of a military
company of the National Guard
service should appeal to every
enterprising community. Re
markable changes have occurred
in the past few years in the Na
tional uuara service so that it is
no longer a strike breaking ex
pediency but a part of the first
line of the nation's defense.
Companies are already located at
Eugene, Roseburg, Ashland, (Cot
tage Grove, McMinnville, Wood-
burn, Oregon Uty, ine uanes,
Baker City and Pendleton, while
strong applications for one of the
new companies have been ten
dered by Astoria, Rainier, Sea
side, Canby, Silverton, Medford,
Grant's Pass, Forest Grove, New
berg and Klamath Falls. Other
applications are being received
weekly. .The purpope of thel
Military board is to distribute
these -companies to the best pos
sible advantage among the bet
ter type of cities of the state.
The problem that is just now
occupying the attention of Ore
gon National Guardsmen, of
whom there are some 1400 is that
of suitable armories. The na
tional government supplies arms
and equipment, ammunition,
shooting galleries and ranges,
and the War department has
suggested that the various states
should at least provide suitable
armories for housing the troops
and storing the equipments.
Portland, of course, has an ade
quate armory, provided and paid
for by Multnomah county. The
last legislature appropriated
$100,000 to be paid out at the rate
of $25,000 a year for the con
struction of armories in the
smaller communities of the state.
This appropriation is to be voted
upon under the Initiative and Re
ferendum at the coming June
election. From a military stand
point the armories are indespens
able, from an economic stand
point they are a good invest
ment The state is at present
paying $5,000 per year rentals
for inadequate rookeries. Thus
it will be seen that in compara
tively a few years the armories
would pay for themselves in the
saving to the state on rentals.
The success of the measure al
ready seems assured, the only
obstacle being a possible lack of
understanding and appreciation
of the measure by the voters of
smaller communities who are the
ones, by the way. most directly

William A. Carter, republican
candidate for nomination of Rail

of the state law regulating trans

transportation companies in fav
or of special industries, shippers
or localities, and will insist that
equal rights be extended to every
shipper, great or small. Mr.
Carter is thoroughly familiar with
the present condition in his dis

his entire time and earnest ef
forts toward securing more equit
able rates for all industries in
his district and particularly the
merchants and small shippers of
interior cities and towns and the
shippers of produce. His num
ber on the official ballot is 19.

Vole for Good Men.
The editor doesn't know much
about politics and never did. As
far as party is concerned he con
siders that there is but little dif
ference. Parties are . composed
of men. All the good men did
n't get into one party; all the
bad men didn't get into one par
ty; the republican party hasn't
got a monopoly of all the good
principles, the democratic party
has no monopoly of all that is
bad. These are self-evident
truths, but the people have never
thought much about them until
recently, but the more they think
about them the wiser they be
comethe less they care about
party and the more they care
about men. The "yellow dog"
on my party ticket don't get my
vote, is the way the average vot
er feels about it If the man I
vote for is honest I am sure he
will conduct his office in the in
terests of the people as a whole,
whether he be socialist prohibi
tionist democrat or republican.
And this line of political conduct
will redeem this country from
the throttling grasp of the gang
of thieves that is directing its
destinies today. Seaside Signal
WINTER IN THE BEAVER STATE.

8utamary of Conditions During-
.. .... .J..!VlrtT Months , ,,
The weather during the last
six months was, on the whole,
mild and dry, with no severe
cold spella and less than the us
ual amount of snow in tne val
leys. There were three rainy
days near the end of October,
but the seasonal rains did not be
gin until the second decade in
November and they continued
thereafter intermittently until
the end of March. During De
cember there was a marked ex
cess in precipitation between the
Coast and the Cascade range of
mountains, and one moderate
cool spell from the 16th until the
21st, when the temperature in
the western counties were slight
ly below the freezing point and
in the eastern counties were from
10 to 20 degrees below the freez
ing point, but only two stations
reported zero temperatures.
Notwithstanding rains occurred
almost dailey in January, the to
tal amount was small and by the
,i .t i.
end ot tne montn mere was a
deficiency of nearly two inches,
which was proportionately great
est in the eastern counties.
The coldest weather of thesea-
. . . 1L n
son occurred during me nrst
three days in February, when
zero temperatures were reported
in nearly every eastern county
and temperatureTTrCi-20 to
30 above zero in tfe western
counties. This cold stiell was of
short duration and fallowed by
mild weather during the remain'
derof the month. The Febru
ary precipitation was deficient in
all counties and hardly any snow
fell in the cultivated valleys.
About the middle of March there
were three or four days with
heavy rains and mild tempera
tures, which caused all rivers to
run bank full and numerous
washouts occurred along the rail
roads ia the eastern district
Frequent light frosts occurred in
March and in the higher sections
there were a number of killing
FOR THE PAST WEEK.
The weather was unusually
dry, with cool mornings and mild
afternoons. The afternoons gra
dually grew warmer as the week
advanced until Sunday, which
was the warmest day of the sea
son, with maximum temperatures
of 70 degrees or more in near-
y all the counties, except near
the immediate coast Frosts oc
curred generally on the 7th, 8th,
9th and 11th. In the Willamette
valley they were light, but in
Jackson, Josephine and Douglas
counties, as well as in many east
ern counties, some wore heavy
and some were light. The morn
ings of the 10th and 13th were
cloudy in the western counties,
while the afternoons in all dis
tricts were generally clear. The
only rainfall during the week oc
curred on the 6th and it consist
ed of a few small showers west
of the Cascade mountains and a
few on the westward slojie of the

Hundreds of Idle Men.
A Grants Pass special says
that freight trains from the
south are carrying from 50 to
100 men on the hurricane dock of
the freight cars. One hundred
and fifty men were dropped off
there from one train, ' the crew
having been ordered to carry the
men no farther than Grants Pass.
Mayor Smith objected, however,
to having so many. unwelcome
guests thrust upon the city, and
ordered them on. Special police
were called and the . trainmen
were forced to proceed with their
load. Every train is being watch
ed and gangs of men that crowd
the cars are compelled to move
Most of these men are on their
way to British Columbia and
Alaska. Spme of them are pro
fessional hoboes, but many are
workingmen out of employment
So large are the gangs that the
train crews are not able to fight
them off and are obliged to trans
port them. It is stated that over
1,000 idle men are now on their
way north from Nevada and
Southern California, and that
these will be pouring into Port
land, Seattle and other northern
cities within the next few weeks.

Republican Candidate for Nomina

Mis Number is 12 on the Official Ballot-Mr. Cake

Worthy of Every Honest Man's Vote.

Hon. II. M. Cake is the advocate of Statement No. 1 and the
popular election of United States
the stump for his successful opponent He deserves the support
of every loyal republican who believes in pure politics. The ma
chine element concedes his nomination if the people go to the polls,
but boasts that believers in Statement No. 1 will not be interested
enough to vote at the primaries. This is the last appeal to those
who believe in the popular election of United States Senators to as.
sert the rights which the old machine is trying to wrest from them.
Mr. Cake received a splendid
in Washington county two years ago, and the voters made .no mis
take then, nor will they make a mistake now by voting for hi n
again. His number on the official ballot is 12.
