LINDBERGH’S TR IU M PH
While the two friends and com
rades were talking they had bieil
busily engaged in getting the ho-\
and nosel together.
Col. Lindbergh has about completed his tour
o f Central America, and will, we presume, be
back in the United States soon. His trip has
demonstrated the possibilities of aircraft trans
portation in a new section and has done much to
aid aviation in the countries visited.
Late in the night they heard
rounds that jonvinced them that
the enemy were preparing for an
attack. Hartley lenving his friend
Waldo in the entrance went inside»
and told the two ladies and tho
three judges to get ready to leave
the cave at a minutes notice.
The journey has done more than stir interest
in aviation. It has been a potent factor in im
proving the relations between the United State
and I*atin America. While this may not be logi
cal in the eyes of* world diplomats, it is a fact.
International relations bring peace or war ac
cording to the feeling which exists in one coun
try towards the people of another. Anything
which tends to produce popular favor for a fore
igner in any country betters the future prospect
for his nation.
Lindbergh has done a great service by his
flight. He has represented the United States to
millions of people, many of whom had rather
poor ideas of Americans. By his modest manner
and good judgment he has visited other peo
ples and won their admiration and good washes.
His triumph hail been one of personality, un
matched by anything that has occurred in mod
PO LIT IC A L INDEPENDENCE NEEDED
While the Register believes in the party sys
tem of government, as it exists in the United
States, we do not think any citizen should be
so hidebound into his party that he fails to recog
nize the good that comes from other people or
the danger that both of the large parties may be
dominated by the same forces.
For that reason, we advise all our readers to
¿dopt a more or less independent attitude in
thinking about all national problems. The ternal
welfare of the republic depends upon freedom of
thought and not upon fidelity to party lines.
When the day comes that there exists in this na
tion only the partisan members of the twTo great
parties then the early end of this republican gov
ernment is apparent.
The average citizen may not fancy internation
al politics for example, but if iie expects to be
Worthy of the ballot he should make it his busi
ness to understand something about what is hap
pening in the world. He should, if he expects
democracy to succeed, become interested in the
matters that affect the United States of Ameri
ca and in the attitude which his nation adopts to
the other people of the world.

This battle royal in the industrial world will
echo into Ashland. It is the biggest struggle that
Big Business has ever witnessed. Where it will
end no one can tell.
There are now registered in the United State
23,125,000 motor vehicles, of w hich 20,140,000
art* passenger cars. These automobiles can seat, it
is estimated. 00,000.000 people, or 20 times as
many as our railway cars. The ramifications of
the motor business are everywhere and all are apt
to be affected by any disastrous price war.

residing in this section have long waited this step,
and now it seems that the dreams are to be real
Just how far this amount of money will go, lo
cal people are loath to say. But they do unite in
saying that the first step will undoubtedly be fol
lowed by others which will mean eventually that
one of the main tributary roads to Ashland will
be a permanent road, and those farmers residing
in this section will be able to get in to Ashland to
do their trading. It means that a new section will
be opened up, and this will contribute its mite to
the future prosperity and growth of Ashland.
SHEEP MENS MEETING
Orr Friday, January 27th, Ashland will be
hosts to the sheepmen of Jackson county. This
occasion will be in the form o f an all day meet
ing to be held probably in the city hall and at
tended by sheep men from every section of the
country. Three phases o f the sheep industry will
bo discussed at this meeting, and of course the
marketing of wool will be one o f the important
topics for discussion. A representative from tho
Cooperative Wool Exchange on
coast will handle this topic and undoubtedly
will bring out many things of a valuable nature
to sheep men generally.
In connection with this, business men should
take notice, for meetings of this kind are held
for only one purpose ana that to show the sheep
men how they can make larger profits.
