The story of how Richmond saved the apple crop of Medford is one that will live ns n thrilling chapter in the nnnnls of Or egon and the factory seaport. "While only nnples were saved, nnd not huinnn life, there is no doubt that many fair maiden's hopes of touching pa for the prico of n new Kastcr bonnet were rescued from peril, nnd that if Manager Luther D. Diniin of the Standard Oil refinerv were not a. married mnn he could add the toueh of romance to the talc by going to Medford and picking most any pippin of nn heiress there ns a bride. "The call by wire that came out of Medfonl this week for a ruh or der of fuel to combat a threatened attack of Jack J-'ro-t upon the apple orchards of that district, with sequent loss of hundreds of thous ands of dollars, was answered with n promptness that saved the situa tion, according to rejwrts received from there. "When n wire was received at the Standard Oil refinery that unless enough fuel oil to smudge the orch ards was received in n certain time tho crop would be ruined, there was some hustling at the plant. "Tho officials immediately got in touch with the Southern Pacific com puny. A special engine was steamed up at once. Four tank cars were loaded and within two hours After tho appeal had been received the oil special was flying on its way to Medford with n clear track ahead ns far as poshible. "Medford apples will bo in the market again this year as usual, nnd tho Kaster bonnets will blossom as they always have." POPULAR GOVERNMENT is good or poor as tho peo ple make it. The closer the government is brought to the people the more representative of the people it really becomes. It is the part of good citizenship to take tin active in terest in politics and in the selection of candidates. The citizen that neglects these civic duties cannot be regarded as a good citizen, neither has he any license to complain about the government that he does get. The Oregon system lias restored to the people the con trol of the government, which had drifted into the hands of politicians and parasites. It the people do not take sufficient interest to sec that they are properly repre sented, but elect to office any Tom, Dick or Harry, whose only qualification is his gall in becoming a candidate, the people can only blame themselves. The people, having secured the power, are busy trying experiments in government to better the condition of humanity. They have given the ballot to women. They have supplanted private grafts, like liability insurance, with public service like workmen's compensation. They have begun to legislate to protect people as well as dol lars. Tliov a iv trving widows' pensions for the distressed, a forerunner of old-age pensions. They tire, by blue-sky laws, preventing legalized swindling. They are curbing and regulating greedy corporations. In a score of differ ent directions their activity is seen. "Wc are entering upon si new era a constructive era. Taxes arc high because the people insist upon regulative measures and even upon state participation in business. They want pure food, good health, a square deal, good roads and a thousand other things that cost mono v. It helps nothing to point to the cost of government a decade or two ago. People stood for evils in government then that thev will never tolerate again. Those davs tire gone forever. The best brains in the community should be sent to the legislature, for it is the legislature's duty to interpret the desires of the people into law. "Wisdom and constructive ability arc needed in opening the new paths of progress. Politics is child's play and should Ik; forgotten. It is therefore a matter of vital concern who we scud to the legislature. It is not altogether a question of lower taxes, nor is it a question of abolition of commissions cre ated in response to popular demand. The candidates should be men of good business judgment and progressive in the highest sense. The commonwealth must be fin anced without retrogression or stagnation. Voters arc beginning to understand that unless they themselves take a hand in securing the right kind of can didates they are apt to get the wrong kind. All over Ore gon wc see concerted effort being made to put forth legis lative tickets, regardless of politics, but regardful of char acter and ability. It is up to the voters of Jackson county to secure such candidates. Some have already been induced to serve the public. Others must be made to understand that service for the community is coming to mean more than it ever has before and is a part of the duty every citizen owes his fellow-men. .triATOR Al) iriXGKD ICK no AT WITH wuicu in: pvitsrus axd kills wolfus -4fc , waai .J: wry : - i i j I HHDKvX 'M if SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSTJ w D NEVER E CONTEMPLATED SAYS E 70.000 MBEZZLER RLAI?

Wheth er gold, silver, and other precious nnd useful minerals may bo found In tho ground by means of mineral rodB la a question frequently asked of tho United States geological sur vey. Tho latest question of this sort camo from a correspondent In Vlno mont, Ala., who states that a man from lilrmlngham has ono of these rods for locutlng minerals, that ho claims tp bo employed by tho gov eminent, and that tho government gets half of what ho finds. This ox- pert mineral finder's namo Is stated to bo WIbo, which may or may not havo significance. Tho geological survey's reply to this correspondent U that while an ordinary compass, or "dip needlo," will be attructcd to ores of Iron, nickel, mid cobalt which aro mag netic, It will ho affected by no other metals or minerals, and that so-called minora) rods aro fakes, Anyono claiming to oporato a mlnoral rod oil bohalf of tho I'nltea States gov ernment is an Impostor and should bo lot soveroly ulone, or reported to tho police, Chan-Chan, the ruined old capital of the Chimus, is not in China, not withstanding that the name might suggest such a locution to the unin itiated. If the Chimus ever lived in Oriental lands our archaeologists have failed to discover the fact. They were Americans, just us were tho lucns, whose traditions traced back tin unbroken line of kings for n thousand years before the Spanish conquest, and whose civilization is so much better known to us; nnd once upon tt time these same Chimus were formidable rivals in all the arts of war and peace of tho Iucas. They dwelt along the shores of Peru, ns did the Iucas on the high Andes, and like the Carthaginians of old, were u sea faring jeople. "Mystery abounds in pre-Columbian America," writes Wulter Vernier in the March issue of the Monthly Bulletin of the Pau-Amerieaii Union, "and tho further modern research penetrates into the ancient civiliza tions of Mexico, Central America nnd the west roust of South America the more the mystery of their origin seems to deepen. Among the prob lems presented to archaeology uud anthropology none perhaps is more fascinating than that of the Chimu people of Peru. What wo read of these, dwellers of the north coast of the land made famous by the Incus is contained in casual references by the eurly Spanish chroniclers j whut we see of the'r civilization consists of stupendous ruins neur the modem town of Trujillo." The ruined temples nnd pain c e walls of this ancient city, richly or namented in bas-relief, the vast irri gation works, the mounds containing the ficpulehcrs of once owerful rul ers, all indicate that the ancient Chimus were worthy rivals of the "children of the sun'' who finally conquered them. The Incns, so tradition says, came from the south to settle the region onee occupied by an ancient race of eyclopean builders. The Chimus of the coast ore said to have come from the north on a flotilla of ruffs, nnd savants are not agreed us to the time of their invasion. Some think there is evidence of two earlier civ ilizations; others that everything points to n relatively short occupancy of the vulleys, extending over only u few centuries prior to I lie advent of the Spaniards. Hacially the Chimus, in common with nearly nil the Pacific const copies of South America north of Chile, present the characteristics found among a largo portion of the ancient and modern inhabitants of Central America nnd Yucatan utterly distinct from the highland type of tho Jnca conquerors. He that us it may, there nro re mnrkable evidences of the advanced civilization of this extinct race. The irrigation works, nqueducts, reser voirs nnd canals whoso ruins may still be seen muke it certain that the engineering f.kill of the Chimus wits of tho Very highest order. Tho em pire wns conquered bv the Incus some 1C0 yeurs before Pizurro arrived up on the scene, und as u race they have vanished from the face of the earth, having been scnttered and finnlly absorbed by the conquerors.
