FRIDAY, AUGUST 23, 1907.
This coming Fail will sea the select
ion of a postmaster for Grants Pass.
At the present writing there are a
number of oltlseat of oar oity who
are actively oanvaeslng for the posl
lion and polling all the politioal
strings they are able to get hold of.
In oor Demooratio form of govern
ment the appointment of postmasters
by the Federal Government seems to
be an anomaly and ii more like the
system in vogue in France where the
central government appoint the
mayors of all the cities. Following
out oor Demooratio ideal, the people
served by the postmaster should be
the ones to have the ehief voice ia his
election but at the present time the
tieople directly interested have the
least to ssy. Postmasterships do not
come nnder the Civil Service Law and
consequently Jit is one of the fe
reuiainlug stroogholds of the spoils
system. The position of postmaster is
generally given as a matter of pollti
oal reward either for past services or
some to c rue. Often the fitness of the
candidate has the least of anything
to do with it. The appointive part
would not be so tiad If everythiuK
wus uudor civil servioe for that would
vtittblt) young men of ability to work
np from inferior positions to ones of
greater trust mid would be nu incen
tive to greater merit. Very much
dends ou what you have done
for your party and whether the Sena
tor or Representative who him the
picking of this particular plum thinks
that you can get 111 in votes when he
needs them. This is more or less de
moralizing to the best interests of
the public served.
It is a fact in history
that there was a groat rise iu prices
lu the curly 'Mi's canned as it Is
claimed, and no doubt trnly, by the
newly discovered gold in California
which was coming Into cireuliitiou
in large quantities. You cau ssy
that money is cheaper in such oases
or that products are dearer as you
choose, but the latter is more logical
as products do act follow inouey
in equal ratio. There are other fac
tors iu each oass of products while
moiiev luut ouly one i. e. its quantity.
The rise of prices iu the '.Walls

dimes worth tip. Ever since the
beginning of the Twentieth Oentury
the searoh for and the production of
gold has been panned with enormous
results, not only in production but in
the discoveries of new; fields of vast
extent. If the solitary gold mines
of California oonld produce such
financial and industrial chnagos as
we had at' that time, what will the
gold production of the present day dof
To judge the fotare by the past is
as true as much now as in the days
of Patrick Henry. 8o if yon judge of
the future by the past yon will make
good goesslng on what is a good place
to put yoor savings in. Many years
ago a niau iu Mastachusutts concluded
that the Creator would not make any
more sea beach in .the vicinity of
Boston at least for long time and
be bought all ha could pay for. Re
suits good. So let . ui look for some
thing nsefol, the quantity of wbioh
cannot be increased and monopolize
all we can pay for. As a matter of
tact it makes no difference what
values are whether one-tenth of what
they now are or ten time as much;
in the last analysis it comes to a
swapping of days works. The men
in the fields and vineyards of Pales
tine in the time of the Saviour were
as well paid with the penny (about
15o) as the two dollar man today The
one attained bis living according to
tbe oastoms of the country, the
other does no more. Bat we are not
going to go back to the modes of the
flrst century. As we stated in the
beginning, prioes are rising so govern
yourself accordingly
