AMSTERDAM, Nov. 2? . via London
A dispatch from Constantinople
Bays that It has been officially an
nounced tlicro by the minister of fl-
nanco that tlio interest on tho loan
of 1003 will bo paid only to such
bondholders as present themselves at
tho central office of tho ministry of
flnanco there.
Tho announcement refers to a
loan of 1C9.000.000 francos ($31,
00,000) issod at four per cent in
1909. Interest is payable semi-annually,
tho next payment being duo
on December 14. Tho action of the
Turkish flnanco minister means that
intorcst payments probably will be
suspended on tho bulk of these
bonds, which aro held abroad, as
their ownero would find It impractic
able or, in view of tho war, almost
imposslblo to go Constantinople to
mako collcctons.
Of this loan $10,000,000 was
taken in London by J. S. Morgan &
Co., tho London houso of J. P. Mor
gan & Co., of New York, and by the
Imperial Ottoman Dank of London.
Most of tho remainder was placed in
France, although bo mo of these bonds
were marketed in Germany.
COMMENTING upon (ho formal oppnmtf oC the paved
section of the Pacific highway, the Ashland Tidings
says:
Tho formal opening of tho Pacific hlghwny from Ashland through Med-
,ford to Central Point today will mark tho first step In rapid commercial
changes in tno Hogiio river valley, this iinru-suriacou road win tiring to
Ashland's door competitive trade territory which has In the past been abso
lutely prohibited by tho condition of tho roads. Tho opening of tho itiRii
wny will mnko of tho valley ono largo but compact body, bring tho citizens
tit Central Point it ml Ashlnnd within a few minutes' rldo by nuto with each
other.
The assertions arc corrcci, except that there si ill re
mains a half mile stretch between the end of tho Ashland
paved road and tho paved end of the highway, which is
unpaved, and will remain unpaved until the road is graded
along a correct route, eliminating the ten per cent grade
now existing and tho dangerous railroad crossing.
This portion of the highway has been surveyed tfi rough
the Billings tract. It is the only feasible route which will
give a five per cent grade, and a subway railroad cross
ing. It is within Ashland city limits Tho Ashland city
charter gives the city sole jurisdiction over all highways
within the city limits. Therefore it is up to the city of Ash
land to provide by purchase or condemnation this right
of way.
The sooner such action is begun the better for Ashland
and the county. The ion per cent grade is a real handicap
to Ashland, as one horse can haul a load from Talent to
Medford that four cannot pull over the present grade to
Ashland hence tho Wagner creek fanner and wood-sellers'
trade goes to nearby Ashland under a handicap that
must divert a portion of it to more distant Medford.
Medford, of course, is satisfied to let Ashland retain its
trade handicap, but county pride revolts at the idea of a
fine boulevard without grade crossings from one end of
the county to the other, with a maximum grade of six per
cent oven in crossing mountain ranges spoiled by a ten per
cent grade and dangerous rail crossing within the limits
of one of its finest cities.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27. Gross

(New York World.)
In 1912 moro than half of tho re
publican rarty, seceding from tho
regular organization, was singing
"Onward, Christian Soldiers," and
battling for tho Lord nt Armageddon.
This year three-quarters of tho pro
gressive republicans who followed
Mr. Roosevelt In 1912 have returned
to tho republican ranks.
The republican party to which they
have returned Is not a regenerated re
publican party which they repudiated
two years ago. It is the republican
party of Penrose and Cannon and
Galllnger and Drandeger and Ebohez
cr J. HU, whoso leadership in 1912
was tho justification of tho progres
sive secession. Even in Pennsylvania
which Mr. Roosevelt carried In 1912
and in which ho made his most en
ergetic campaign against republican
corruption In 1914, Penrose is re
elected to tho zenato by a plurality of
staggering proportions, and Pcnroso
owes this victory to voters who wero
fenzied and fanatical in their support
of Mr. Roosevelt two years ago.
Tho significant thing of this elec
tion is not that tho progressives have
returned to tho republican party, but
that they havo returned to tho same
kind of a republican party that they
left in 1912. Tlicro is not a drop of
progressive blood in its veins. All
Its triumphs in Tuesday's elections
wero triumphs of political reaction. It
stands today for everything it stood
for In 1912, when the progressives re
pudiated It as tho sum total of in
iquity; yet its gains In this election
arc all duo to tho return of tho pro
grcsslvo voters to Its ranks and every
progressive who voted tho republi
can ticket Tuesday voted squarely for
the things against which ho revolted
In 912.
Was tho progressive party over
really serious? Or was It merely n
political Joy-rid which several mil
lion voters took for a change of air?
Certainly there was nothing in
Tuesday's election to indicate that tho
principles and spirit of tho progres
sive platform had ever taken posses
sion of the minds and souls of tho
rank and file. If progressive prin
ciples were sound In 1912, they wero
sound in 1911; yet most of tho pro
gressive voters havo retraced their
steps to reactionary republicanism,
and, abandoning Mr. Roosevelt, havo
found congenial leadership ngaln In
Hoise Penrose nnd Uncle Joe Cannon.
Except in Isolated cases, wo find
no evidence of a slump In tho demo
cratic voto Tuesday. Tho eamo men
who supported Woodrow Wilson and
democratic policies In 1912 support
ed the president and hi a administra
tion In 1911. Whcro tho democrats
havo lost ground is in tho reunion of
republicans and progressives under
tho old flag of political and business
piracy. It Is plain now that a largo
clement of tho progressives who fol
lowed Mr. Roosevelt in 1912 wero
actuated by no considerations of prin
ciple. Tho moral aspects of his cru
sade mado no inward appeal to them.
They followed him because they fan
cied ho had found a better way of
Jimmying a party Into power than
that employed by the cash register
crowd of tho republican old guard.
When they found that Roosevcltlsm
was rich In exhortation but poor in
spoils, they deserted Mr. Roosevelt as
lightly as they deserted Mr. Tatt in
1912.
Tho progressive party Is dead past
hope of a resurrection. Tho only real
progressive party In the country is
tho democratic party under tho lead
ership of Woodrow Wilson. It the
country wants progressiva govern
ment that Is tho only instrument of
progressive government. If tho coun
try wants to return to tho days of
Privilego and Plutocracy, a rounltcd
republican party is again doing busi
ness at the old stand.

bought the lino down tho coast to
Eureka.

minim in iiiiiiiiimy wim mi humd,
regardless of nurYoliticnl tlilToreneoH
nnd beliefs, nnd tint was this: Wo
should nil lay do,vn our piuty mal
ices, if wo harbor .any, and work to
gether in ouo common t'luise, for tho
interest of aMcdford and for lite fur
ther development, of tho Hoguo lllver
valley and lis environments.
Tho last three years havo put to
the supremo tot all sections of the
country, n io their self-supporting
resources. None more so than those
of the l'aeifio northwest. Not that
wo havo been harder hit than other
parts of the country, hut because we
have not as many of our natural re
sources in n state of development as
hnvo tho eastern and middle western
stales.
Tho Rogue River alloy has proven
conclusively that it i not dependant
upon a tourist crop each year, to keep
tho wheels of its affairs moving; that
it is not dependent upon oily-tongued
inflntors to keep it from running on
a lint tiro. In other words, it Iihh
been weighed ill" the bnlaneo nnd
found abundanily able to take euro
of itself.
A few years ago some thought wo
could not stand one year of adverse
conditions. Hut wc havo refilled that
pessimistio statement, and tho onll
is piins out from Medford nnd tho
Roguo River valley stronger than over
before, for tho netual producer, tho
smnll investor its well as the largo in
vestor, the worker, tho man who net
ually does things, those great empire
builders who, by their own energy
nnd industry, add their part to the
development of u eountrv.
Tho requiem of tho pessimist has
been sung and ho must bo gathered to
his fathers. On tho ovo of n groat
dawn of prosperity w" -' longer
avido tho discordant jar of his oroak
ings in our oars. And besides, wo
havo no room for him.
This feeling of optimism, with mo
nt least, is no spasmodio dream, 1
feel it in my bones, feel it in the un
seen workings of tilings, (hat hidden
current that enriies us on. It tins
passed tho point of longer suppres
sion, so I had to write.
To mo there is something pathetic
in tlio story of Moses. Ho who hnd
spent a lifetime in his efforts to bring
tho children of Israel into tho prom
ised laud. Yet ho was never permit
ted to sco them settle there. Wo al
ready possess the land that flows
with milk and honey, and the only
giant wo found inhabiting it was tho
howling pessimist, mid wo got him.
