The Salem Post, Independent
says: "The conduct of the last leg

It seems that Congress is bound
to keep up its former record, and
not give the people any wholesome
legislation. Instead of all parties
uniting on tome good law that
would alleviate the sufferings of
the masses, they are content with
quarreling and wrangling among
A short time ago we noticed in
the papers the statement that sev
eral sheriffs were claiming to be
falling behind with the running
expenses of their offices, on account
of the law making them pay their
own mileage. It is certainly strange
that these sheriffs would want to
be re-elected.
Some of the big papers are al
ways printing some big war scare
and putting it before the people.
Enterprising papers seem to be
trying to see who can tell the big
gest war lies. The latest is that
England is going to buy Cuba of
Spain and that the result will be a
big war. In fact, some of the
papers say that soldiers are already
being gotten together for business.
All of which probably is untrue.
Such reports beting published so
often are getting to be monotonous.
The Salem Statesman, republi
can, says: "The last legislature
had a duty to perform, but that
duty it failed to comprehend or
execute. An extra session now
would simpfy mean the coming to
gether of the same men who frit
tered awiy forty days last year,
the same men who failed to reme
dy the laws of assessment and
taxation, who failed to abolish the
useless commissions. It would
bring the earns men who added to
the burdens of the people by en
grafting large and small sums here
and there in the fixed appropria
tions, the payment of whioh now
makes the taxpayer squirm." .,

military motive in its dangerous
form would speedily die out; all
danger of its leading to wars of a
