ERASING OREGON FROM THE TOURIST MAP
COMMERCIAL bodies throughout tho state ought to
make n vigorous protest, over tho proposed rates for
world fair tourists, whereby the Southern Paeifie arbi
trary charge of $17.50 is added for making the trip either
way through Oregon. This will keep tens of thousands
from seeing Oregon and result in making the exposition
of little real benefit to the state.
The Hill roads now propose to perfect traffic arrange
ments with the northern roads whereby the Southern Pa
cific charge of $17.50 will be absorbed and exposition bus
iness handled by way of the magnificent llill steamers
now being built to ply between Astoria and San r-Yan-cisco.
This will send most of the tourists around Oregon
instead of through the state, and no direct benefit will
accrue to interior points, from world's fair rates and
Portland, which has pretended to be greatly concerned
lest tho tourist will not stop at Oregon towns, now has
a dinner to show how much in earnest the metropolis is
when the real interests of the interior are at stake, by
leading the fight to eliminate or cut down the Southern
Paeifie $17.50 arbitrary charge. However, it is more than
probable that Portland's aid will he of the same sort it
usually is, as exemplified by the financial assistance prom
ised for Ashland's exhibit building just hot air.
Instead of protesting the proposed elimination of Ore
gon, tho Portland papers are actually jubilant over it, the
Wherein Portland would ho the greatest beneficiary from such a traffic
and routing nrrancement on the part of the Hill forces lies In the fact that
all eastern travel routed to the Paunma-Paciflc exposition by way of am
and all of the northern group Including the Grand Trunk Pacific, the
Canadian Pacific, the Great Northern. Northern Pacific and the Milwaukee
would enjoy stop-overs in Portland.
Of course, a stop-over in Portland is all that Portland
is really interested in for Portland is Oregon to the av
The development of Oregon caused by the exposition
travel will therefore become much like the development
of Oregon occasioned by the building of Portland sky
scrapers of no real benefit simplv further over-devel
opment of its over-developed metropolis.
If the Southern Pacific has the real benefit of Oregon
at heart, it will of its own volition cut down this differ
ential or abolish it but the Southern Pacific is primarily
a California railroad, and unless public opinion is strong
enough to compel action, there is little chance ol intenoi

A LITTLE BRIEF AUTHORITY
THE action of the city officials and electrical inspector
in prohibiting the exhibition of the Oregon State
Game and Fish moving pictures tit the Hotel Medford
would have resulted in denying to the local public an' op;
portunity to see these highly entertaining and instructive
films had it not been for the public-spirited generosity of
the management of the Page theater.
The ordinance under which the exhibition was prohib
ited was intended to cover fire-trap buildings where
moving picture shows are conducted as a business. Exhi
bitions such as proposed by the Commercial club have
been conducted all over the state in clubs, churches and
halls not equipped for the moving picture biwiness, and
the brief exhibition proposed by the Commercial club in
no wise endangered the building to si risk by fire. There
is an automatic extinguisher upon the moving picture
machines that effectually eliminates all danger of fire.
Because of an opportunity for a small and unneces
sary official, whose office the people thought they voted
to abolish, to strut and exhibit his brief authoritv, the
Commercial club was compelled to postpone its booster
banquet and abandon its plan ol entertainment.
Tho mavor or the fire committee of the council could
have giatilcd the needed permit but wouldn't.
THE PINHEAD IN POLITICS
THE nincompoop, pinhcad and hypocrite is now at the
bat in Oregon politics. Like a mushroom growth,
they fire springing up all over the land with an unvaried
monotony of mushy platform moutliings of economy, law
enforcement and prohibition.
All this claptrap and modest self-appraisement is de
signed to catch the new and uninitiated suffrage just
granted the tenderer sex. To read over the candidates'
platforms one would think a reign of Boss Tweed, Mur
phy find Tammany was in full swing in Oregon.
The women of Oregon, like its male voters, will have
many political mistakes to answer for, but let us pray
that their enfranchisement docs not mark the beginning
of a reign of political hypocrites.

good country to Jmmigrate to two
centuries ngo. Those forefathers
who came then were the worthy pio
neers of liberty mid progression nnd
they developed the greatest country
on the globe; but the descendants of
those noble pioneers are living on
the reputation of their forefathers.
They have made no reputation of
their own; they have settled down
to a state of "inocuoiir. desuetude"
and have become a seeoud-haud
product, n degenerate race of worthy

the intelligent west; the second-hand

My father was a most woithy man
nod ii lending mint in our commun

son of sut'li wotlhy niioctnt, and

son of Captain Unwind. Well, I
never liked a second-hand individ

when father offend me fluttering in
ducements to settle down nt home I
told him 1 wanted to go west and es
tublish an individuality all mv own.
I did so, traveling the thousands
of miles with my family nnd o
team, ever on, to the golden west,
that I might be one of the pioneer
eitireiis, nnd after I had l"'en liete

I went back with my wile mid two

that I had established an individual

honest, was cousideied respectable,

a member of the Oregon legislature,
all of which my father appreciated.
