THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION
We are in receipt this week of Vol.
1, No. 1 of Oils and Industrials, a
new monthly publication launched
the first of the year by the Press Pub
lishing Company of Fort Worth, Tex.
This new magazine is to be a month
ly digest of activities in oil and other
great industries of the Southwest,
and is published in the heart of the
mid-continent oil fields. Its editor is
Garfield Crawford, formerly of this
city, and brother of the editor of The
Ga:etie-Timcs, and W. F. Hecht is
business manager. These men are
also connected with the S Miami Oil
Journal, a weekly printed in the in
terests of the oil industry", and the
two publications now being put out
by the Press Publishing Company
will thoroughly cover the oil activ
ities, not only of Texas but of the en
tire country. We also note that the
New York representative of Oils and
Industrials is another boy from this
town, Heppner Blackman.
In putting out the initial number,
its editor states:
"Oils and Industrials has arrived
It is not the best nor the biggest pub
lication of its kind to come from a
press, but we have a pride in it. We
believe that this pride is more or less
justified for the good reason that we
have spent much money and a lot of
hard work and conscientious effort in
producing this first issue. The mag
azine is just starting on its way. It
is not what we want it to be, nor will
it arrive at the goal of success until
its makers have given it tremendous
labor and sacrifice.
This first issue contains 64 pages,
finely illustrated and well printed. Its
promoters should be proud of it and
if subsequent numbers measure up
anywhere to the standard set, the
magazine will surely prove to be a
valuable addition to the industrial
publications of the country, and
successful financial venture to its
publishers. The modest price of $2
per year is asked for the new publi
cation and if there is anyone in this
part of the country that is at all in
terested in the oil development of
the great Southwest, as well as its
other industries their money will be
well invested in this magazine.

Whisky "Before and After."
The minority has a perfect right in
this democracy to try to turn a ma
jority against prohibition, but lets
have no misunderstanding about the
chief argument of the wets in their
fight to overthrow the Eighteenth
"That bootleg whiskey is so bad
that it is better for this nation to go
back to pre-prohibition whiskey."
The pot calling the kettle black.
The whiskey made by the profiteer
ing "distillers" during the last quar
ter of a century of wetness was fully
as villianous as the stuff they sell to
day. The only difference is that the
public does not know what was hap
pening from about 1S90 to 1919.
Just as many men fell, poisoned, on
the streets and in police stations but
nobody paid any attention to it in the
cities. They were just "drunk."
Listen to what the official United
States government census for 1900
said (Twelfth Census):
"MOST (note that most) of the
distilled liquors consumed as a
BEVERAGE by the American peo
ple pass through rectifying houses.
The different classes of rectified
spirits ranee from the CHEAPEST
CONCOCTIONS of natural spirits
and DRL'GS to the simple blending
of young and old whiskey."
Look Out For More Propa
ganda. No doubt our readers have heard
of a recent hullabaloo in New York
against our modern American histor
ies as written by some very able
American college professors.
Don't worry over it folks. It's all
propaganda. The earmarks of prop
aganda are all over it.
New York is the home of propa
ganda; you may be sure that when
a bunch of fellows anywhere in the
United States get ready to spring
some doctrine or scheme on us simple-folk,
they start it in New York

Peocle of common sense who
think, know that the farther time
moves away from some historical
event, the more truthful must the
histories of that event become. That
is because prejudices die with the
generations that were intimately
concerned with the event. It is now
about 140 years since the American
revolution was fought and it is pret-
tv safe to say that histories written
hv American scholars in the last
Quarter of a century are more truth
ful than those that went before and
which propagandists would now like
to foist upon us again.
It is also enough to say that the
Daughters of the Revolution approve
the histories attacked.

Why Don't They Pay For It
For the most part Portland papers
have remained discreetly silent since
ihe legislature adjourned. The Port
land Telegram, however, earned an
editorial Wednesday from which the
following is taken:
"A well organized effort was evi
dently made to kill the exposition in
the state house without giving the
electors of the state opportunity to
express their minds on a clear cut
question of an exposition, yes or no
The election has been tied to
gasoline question that may or may
not please the majority of the voters
who favor an exposition. There is
no strong reason to believe that the
people of the state at large are not
overwhelmingly in favor of financ-
ine the exposition by a direct prop
crty tax, for at the most it will be
but a trifling tax."
The legislature refused to take the
responsibility of submitting to the
people a $3,000,000 tax measure for
the Portland fair. The legislators
properly held that if the fair promo
ters wish to put the matter up to the
people they should use the initiative,
as is their crivileee. The matter
can then be passed upon at the reg
ular state election.

Will Irish Bonds be Offered?
Final ratification of the covenant
between Ireland and Great Britain
will probably be followed promptly
by an offer in the United States of
bonds of the Irish Free State. As
yet there has been no discussion of
the amount or terms of the loan,
states Robert E. Smith, President of
Lumberman's Trust Co. Bank, Port
land. With an area of 32,586 square
miles (not including ulster), or
slightly more than one-third that of
the state of Oregon, Ireland had
according to the 1911 census, 4,393,-
000 popuation, ranking fifth in size
and third in white population among
the British self-governing dominions.
Alone among these many divisions,
Ireland has shown a steady decline
in population, dropping from 8,175,-
000 in 1841. During the 60 years
from 1851 to 1911, more than 4,190,-"
000 emigrated to other countries.
Ireland possesses 3403 miles of rail
way and 837 miles of navigable wa
terways. Agriculture is the domin
ant industry, and potatoes are of
course, the chief crop. The pro
duction in 1918 amounted to 3.836,
000 tons. Of flax, Ireland produces
less than one-fifth of the require
ments of the Irish linen industry, the
balance of the raw material coming
largely from Russia. Other import
ant crops are grain, hay and veget
ables for livestock. Since 1916 Ire-1
land has enjoyed a substantial favor

Booth Must Not Resign.
Rumors that ill health and over
work have caused Robert A. Booth
to consider resigning from the state
highway commission have reached
Portland from his home cty. The
Eugene reports aver that Senator
Booth thinks he should allow some
younger man to be appointed to the
The Telegram joins with tens of
thousands of Oregon citizens in hop
ing that Mr. Booth will not quit the
commission that he has honored so
long and on which he has unselfishly
done such a great work for the state.
No other man in Oregon knows the
state's highway needs as does the
chairman of the commission.
He has gone over every lane and
path in Oregon that may some day
become a real road. He has jour
neyed over our main highways time
after time, spending a great deal of
his own money and many days in
studying first hand the needs of each
community and the best routes for
main roads. The distance from the
Jones farm to Sheepskin hollow by
the low road and the miles by the
hill line are as well known to him
as to the rangers who have herded
over the territory for a decade.
Chairman Booth knows because he
has cone over the roads. He walks,
rides horseback or takes an automo
bile over every proposed route. He
studies maps, reads engineers' plans
and then goes out to see for himself.
In this way, much valuable time is
saved at every meeting of the state
highway commission. There is no
lost motion showing hills and dales
on the county map. The visiting dele
gations, when they address Chairman
Booth, can talk to the point he
knows the road, the crossings and
the interior difficulties that confront
builders and taxpayers.
A high-minded, intelligent and
practical man in public service is a
gem of great price and greatly to be
prized by the state. Mr. Booth is
such a man. Mr. Booth's services
must not be lost to the commission
and the state. Portland Telegram.
