THE LIVING DEAD
HAVING elected by a largo mn.jdriry to the office of
governor a man who proclaimed thai cheap labor
from foreign countries should bo pel'inittted to come here
to displace the labor of our citizens and beat down their
wage and standard of living, it is but fitting there should
be officials in other branches or our government who
should have ideas that .would harmonize with the uplift
movement that was indorsed at the last election.
One has recently spoken. A circuit judge of Portland
has CjOino out with the Easter tide suggestion that the
vlppphig post be established for small offenders. He says
he comes from Delaware, where it is in vogue.
We ought next to hear from some judge, who has come
frdm Mongolia, advocating confining convicted criminals
in an iron-bound box the size of a coffin with but one open
ing, large enough to admit a bowl of rice or water. It has
been long tried jn Mongolia, and the Mongol judges would
tell us probably that it works well. Some of the Mongol
ian taxpayers 'would undoubtedly tell us it works well
because it keeps down expenses.
One can readily see that under such a method that a
large number of criminals could be taken care of in this
method in a small space, and few guards would be required.
Inasmuch as our noble governor intends to see that the
population in the penitentiary increases, by all means let
us adopt the Mongolian method and lock them in coffins
till they die and forget them and go about our business of
What matters the takiiig of a few lives, tho wrecking
and destruction of a few human beings, as long nstaxea
arc low and business is good"? Human life is most plenti
ful, and very cheap. For every human that is killed an
other is brought into the world. S,o why needlessly worry H
The dollar is what we are niter, not tor ourselves, out
to make it for the Rockefellers, Morgans and Oarncgies.
That is the philosophy that unconsciously finds its vent in
the unthinking mouths that long for brutal punishments
and overflowing prisons.
Dickens would have delighted in the acquaintance of
such gentlemen. As his stories reveal, he knew many like
them. We had supposed they were nil ciena. remaps
they are. Undoubtedly they are dead to the spirit of the
age uena 10 rne ruroouing anu cnunuriug ui uiv ho
outside that is moving on to higher and nobler civilization,
based upon human love and sympathy, and which will be
free from cruelty.
Such men, if not dead, are living in the suffocated ex
halations of old graves and the ashen odor of dissolution
and death, beyond the sound of the mighty call of life
of better life for men and Avomen, of better opportunity
to live. They make us feel that we are not so far from
the cavemen who lived to eat and kill.
What do these gentlemen think of the teachings of
Jesus Christ? Beautiful, but impractical. Would that bo
their answer? What manner of man is it that wants to
sec man's sacred body beaten and lacerated for a petty
offenso? What would be done with great offenders, the
rulers of trusts? A fine, no doubt, to be afterwards by
them collected from the consumer.
What manner of man is it who says, not regretfully
but boastingly, that he will increase the prison population
by prolonging the pimishment of fellow men? Pitiful,
indeed, pitiful; more to be pitied than condemned.
PRESERVE THE BEAUTY SPOTS
UltiCADE IN AMERICA"
articles in the Saturday
Hough, who visited Crater Lake last summer to secure
data on the park. The articles arc of absorbing interest
and should be read by every one. They will do much to
divert the tourist to the national beauty spots.
The introduction to the. scries, by Franklin K. Lane,
pays a graceful and well-earned tribute to Will Steel. It
reads in part as follows :
Tiio United States contains Switzerland, tho Rlvlcrri, tho fiords of Nor
way and tho Egyptian desert. Tills fs a flamboyant way of saying a slmplo
fact that there is nothing of natural grandour or, beauty which our pcoplo
crriss tho water to enjoy which has not Its rival or suporlor within this
country. And In addition our land Is rich In canyons, forests and nat
ural wonders, tho Ilko of which tho Old World docs not present.
Our Covernmsnt lias dono an unprecedented thing In saving most of
our remarkable i'arks and pleasuro places from prlvato possession. No
ono thought out our system of national parks. Kach lias been added
to the chain through tho love of some pioneer llko Will Stuel, tho Vicar of
Crater Lake, mado It for many devoted years his temple and his shrlno.
And In tho saving of theso parks there Is a story rich In tho romance of
Theso twolvo parks of rare and Individual beauty have bcon brought
under ono control and wo aro attempting through Congress to givo thorn
tho charter of carcd-for places whero man does not desecrate, but Inter
feres only to make more accessible and enjoyable to glvo that living
touch which adds so much to every picture.
It is a duty this generation owes to futurity to preserve
nature's beauty spots from vandalism. The efforts of the
national government should be supplemented by state and
county and by individual effort.
There is no more perfect or beautiful waterfall ot its
kind in the world than Mill Creek falls. Effort should bo
made to keep it in its natural beauty. Have we not public
spirit onough among us, individually or collectively, to
preserve this fascinating bit of scenery by the creation of
a public park?
The upper Rogue? is full of picturesque scenery. The
gorge at Prospect, the "box canyon," Union falls and
numerous cascades, waterfalls aiid gorges, are all wcJrtlty
of preservation and should bo secured before wrecked by
Enough of the primeval forest along the river should
also be included for preservation, for at some no distant
date this timber will be cut and one of our chief scenic
assets lost forever.
Now is tho time to act. Tho Conunerciul club or some
other organization should begin an active campaign' for tho
preservation of our beauty spots. Lot us keep forever
what tho Lord has made in Jackson county that canuot
be found elsewhere. , .
