The San Kraneiceo Kxnmincr of
April ft contain the following dis
"Richmond, April 4. 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
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
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

WASHINGTON', April 7. Wheth

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

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.
