heart, bereaves the doting moth

laughs at its ruin. It does all
that and more. It murders the

mother of all abominations, the
devil's best friend and God's
riage, prevention of floods and
their consequent destruction of
life and property, care of the
range lands of the West -their
regrassing and proper utilization,
these are a few of the grand di
visions of the questions to be
threshed out at the conference.
And looking at the meeting
purely from its historical side,
how many of those who have
read what the newspapers have
been saying about this confer
ence have realized that never be
fore in the country's history have
the governors of all the states
assembled in convention, for any
purpose whatsoever? Consider
ed simply as an epoch marking
event, the conference will easily
take rank with any assembly of
public men ever held in the civil
ized world, for at this meeting
the entire government of the
United States, in the persons of
that government's heads, will be
assembled together at one time.
If for no other reason, the public
would be interested in the con
ference because of this fact.
Excursion lo Honolulu.
Honolulu, T. II., May 2.
Word has reached here that steps
are being taken by a syndicate
on the coast to run a great ex
cursion to Honolulu from San
Francisco early in July, coinci
dent with the sailing of the Am
The project is said to contem
plate the chartering of the two
big passenger liners, Sierra and
Sonoma, of the Oceanic Line,
now out of commission, each of
which will accomodate several
hundred passengers, and accom
panying the fleet throughout the
entire eight or ten days of the
voyage between the two ports.
The Tillamook Headlight says
that "a lot of fine weather suita
ble for railroad building, going
to waste." and adds that "the
electric road to Tillamook cannot
be built any too soon to suit Till
amook peonle." The Orvovm
r.iectric people are "dointr
things" right along, and if the
present gait is kept up Tillamook

"As I am informed, the rail
road" company sold part of the
land for practically enough mon
ey to make up the total to which
it would be entitled at the maxi
mum rate on the whole grant.
The company has therefore no
turther claim to me land, espec
ially in view if the fact that it
has refused ti carry out the
terms of the grant and aid in the
development ofjthe state. Hav
ing once grantel the land, there
is no reason wh the government
should now Atsire to retain it
It could not use the land for the
development of the state to bet
ter advantage than by turning
it over to the public schools of
If the land were so donated
to the state, proper restrictions
could be made to prevent its sale
to speculators. So much of it as
is located on the headwaters of
streams could be withheld, from
sale by the state and made a for
est reserve for the conservation
of water. The state would adopt
the plan of selling the mature
timber, and not the land, thereby
protecting the young growth of
timber and preserving the forests
for future generations.
"At the same time, the irredu
cible school fund, which is now
only about $4.(XX).0K), would be
practically doubled. All the
children of the state would get
the benefit of the grant, and the
improved condition of the public
schools would very aooreciablv
aid in the development of the
state, ihe original purpose of
the grant has been accomplished
tnrougn tne buikhnsr of the rail,
road. The progress of the state
has been retarded because the
'ami was not placed on sale un
ui r ierms oi the grant The
government should make such
disunion of the land as will
most nearly remedy the wrong
that has been dune."

Major William G. Haan, Coast
Artillery, U. S. A., who is in
Honolulu on a special mission for
the war department in connec
tion with the matter of fortifica
tion of the territory, expects to
recommend that several regi
ments of infantry and light ar

parties of an enemy.
In case of hostilities with Jap

be very necessary since the Jap

of the territory largely outnum
bers the other inhabitants.
Major Haan is a member of
the National War College and is
an authority on coast defenses.
He expects to be engaged in pre
paring data on the islands for
At the present time aside from
about 500 men of the National
Guard, there is but one battalion
of infantry stationed in the ter

men, with only a partial comple

Where Ihe Mohair Comes From.
When riding in a Pullman car
in any part of the United States
or in a sleeper in Canada and en
joying the nice soft plush seats,
or touring about the city or the
country in an automobile cover
ed with a great thick plush robe,
did it ever occur to you that most
of the material of which all this
plush is manufactured comes
from Oregon ? Probably you nev
er thought about it but never
theless, such are the facts. Ore
gon supplies more mohair from
which plush robes and seat cov
erings are made than any other
state in the Union. - Grants Tass
This is the way William Allen
White puts it: "There are three
thintrs which no man can do to
the satisfaction of other men
make love, poke the fire and run
a paper. No matter if a man
has no more sense than an oyster
and does not know how many
toes he has, he always knows
how to run the paper better than
the editor. And, what is more,
he tells all about it in the street
car. But, despite all this valua
ble advice that is wasted, the ed
itors still go on making blunders,
and money. The old-fashioned
editor who had to be all things
to all men is passing away. The
timo ima pome when a man who
runs a paper is his own master."
The question of the entrance
into Ilillsboro of the Oregon Elec
tric Railway Co. was settled at
a meeting of the city council last
Tuesday evening. The line will
enter the city limits on East
Washington street and run along
that street to First street, where
a "Y" will be built between First
and Main streets, which will be
used as a turn-table for the elec
tric cars on their run back to the
city, Work on the line will be
gin at once and pushed as rapidly
At a special meeting of the
council Monday evening the ques
tion of the road entering the city
was thoroughly discussed and it
was practically decided that the
line would enter town on East
Washingtonand run along that
street to Range street on the
west side of town, next to First.
At Third on Washington street,
a track was to be built north to '
Main street along Main to Sec
ond, down Second and join the
main track at Washington, thus
making a loop around that block.
But the Tuesday night meeting
changed the route to run the full
length of Washington street and
make the turn on First.
As stated some time ago, the
road will be completed to Hill
boro at once where operations
will cease until the Albany ex
tensions are completed. What
will be done after that toward
building out of Ilillsboro is pure
ly guess work. The company un
doubtedly has the route all fixed,
but none of its members are say-

relied upon to mangle his ear or
rake the skin off his neck even if
the edge has to saw its way
through a stiff linen collar. If
he attempts any osculatory san

he will get a gouged eye or have
the bridge of his nose unroofed.
