southeasterly winds. '
Since earliest history It has
teen the custom of the heads ot all
nations to discuss questions of great
importance behind closed doors
then tell the common people what
happened after the big pow-wow was
all over.' Human nature does not
change. That is what is going to
happen at the big conference at
Paris and with our own president
in the midst of it. Now we can un
derstand why the cables were seized
by Wilson before going across. Ot
course, we shall he given an "ofTiclal
statement" occasionally. Just to part
ly appease our' curiosity. It appears
to be the same old game played in
the same old way private intrigues
behind closed doors.
y The big war was fought in
-name of humanity. Then for
'j ' jrafc of humanity why don't the al-
lied powers stop the Bolsheviks in
y their daily orgy ot murder, torture
' and robbery? There Is no let-up in
'i their bestiality They have no aim
if In view to destroy any certain na-
ij tlon, but seek to drag society down
3 to Its lowest strata. To crush the
Bolsheviks and clear the earth ot
the red flag of anarchy is too large
a Job for any one country. It will
tax the power of the entente allies
It appears to be a race between
the members of the legislature and
the I. W. W. of Portland to see who
can first gain the favor and good
will of those 6,000 Idle men. Those
Portland Bolsheviks are good mixers,
But in approaprlatlng $100,000 for
the immediate relief of the idle and
' dollarless men, the legislature scored
a direct hit.
The government is sending out cir
culars telling how certain communi
ties got rid of the digger-squirrel and
prairie dog pests. It was done by
close cooperation and united effort
among the ranchers. The same kind
f program will quickly bring irri
gation to the Rogue River valley.
It's a big lesson in a few words.
A dispatch says the German maid
ens are disregarding Pershing's or
ders and are "talking to the Yank
soldiers along the Rhine." We don't
blame the girls they know a brave
man when they see one: No doubt
our boys look as good to the German
girls' as Ihey did brave and fierce to
the. German soldiers.'

Word comes from Medtord, and a
