A Non-PartUan Question.
Hood River, March 15, 1902. Editor
Glacier: My attention was called to an
editorial in the Oregonian recently on
the proposed amendment to the consti
tution of Oregon, pending at the ap
proaching election, to adopt direct legis
lation by the initiative and referendum.
It says:" With the general aim and pur
pose of the measure the Oregonian is in
full accord and will not complain if the
amendment is adopted. The Oregonian
has long ceased to have impatience with
any undertaking that has for its object
to curtail the powers of the political
bosses yet it is recognized that
the amendment is almost certain of
defeat owing to the failure such pro
posals always make in an effort to arouse
popular interest. In practice more
over the beneficial results of the propos
al would be problematical."
What most surprises me is the adroit
manner in which a paper of ordinarily
broad views on mostquestions,and mak
ing the pretensions it does would ignore
in a quiet way such an important ques
tion, in vol ving a great principle and at the
same time labor to enthuse the people
on strictly partisan and factional lines
within its own party. Direct legislation
through the initiative and referendum
is a strictly non-partisan question. Its
proposal in the state of Oregon was pas
sing the last mile stone in the march of
progress in the nineteenth century and
its adoption will be the first crowning
success marking the wonderful growth
of intellectual development in the twen
tieth. It will install manhood and citi
zenship in the exalted position for which
it vtif designed in the formation of a
government of, by and for the people. A
measure that willemancipate the people
from the domineering of the office seek
er and professional politician whose on
ly visible means of support is derived
from hoodwinking the people and bleed
ing trusts and corporations.
The person who would not trust him
self or honest neighbors to vote for or
against a law instead of a professional
politician is either an enemy to human
progress and mankind or does not know
enough to drive a peg straight down into
the soft ground. The adoption of the
initiative and referendum will forever
dispose of the professional politician
and systems that foster trusts and pri
vate monopoly. verdant

freshments were served under the charge
of caterer J. E. Wilhelm, after which

Captain Shaw's Lecture.
The lecture by Captain J. P. Shaw,
last Friday eveuing.for the benefit of the
Brotherhood of Andrew and Philip,
was one of the best of the series. A good
sized audience assembled, notwithstand
ing the inclemency of the weather and
the counter attraction of the bachelors'
hall. The lecturer gave a brief history
of the war, from the firing on Fort Sum
ter to the surrender of Lee at Appo
mattox. His anecdotes of war times
were appreciated by the audience espe
cially by the boys. In closing he paid a
high tribute to ine oiu Boiuier. louuwwg
were his closing remarks:
Let us not forget in these days of
ereed and commercialism, the valor,
e . .. j .1
privations ana narasnipH euuurcu uy u
men who saved to you this nation of ours.
Nor must we foreet the lost opportuni
ties for them while they were fighting
the battles of their country. Opportu
nities forever gone, so far as they are
concerned. My friend, debl kindly by
them.remember by right.and by promise
they are the honored wardsoi mis nation.
As we bo on down through life.let us not
fometto teach our children to revere the
old soldiers in their midst; perchancean
empty sleeve may dangle at his side, or
a miS8ingieg may lie Duriea some wiiere
in thtSouthland, and while we teach them
these things, let us not forget to tell
them that in the dark days,' when a
light went out at home, a soldier fell in
battle, and that through all these years
dark shadows still shut out the light in
the hearts of hundreds of thousands of
our people who gave a lather, son,
brother, husband or lover to the cause
of the Union who did not return.
Once each vear the old soldiers, now
decrepit with age, and with tottering
steps, gamer at uie various cemeteries
throughout the nation to lay wreaths
and flowers on the the graves of those
who have answered the last roil call.
And in typical manner to place beauti
ful flowers, fragrant with the bloom of
spring, upon the sacred mound erected
to the memory of the "unknown dead."
Unknown deadl Only the soldier knows
what that means. Thousands upon
thousands of unknown and unmarked
graves, where rests the remains of
comrade who died for his country. It is
upon occasions like these that past
achievements of the old soldier are
again fresh in his memory ; once more
he sees the long line of blue as it leaves
the cover of yonder woods and marches
out to meet the loe he knows to be strong
ly intrenched behind breastworks await
ing his coming. With whitened face,
and a firm grip of the musket, he ad
vances upon the foe. when suddenly
puff of white smoke is seen to issue from
the enemy's lines, then there is a loud
roar of artillery, and the deadly shell
strikes the advancing column and bursts
with awful effect. The smoke and dust
clears away, and what do we behold?
Writhing in their life blood lie scores of
brave boys whose suits of blue is crim
soned with the fast ebbing life current.
The havoc of death is awful; the line
halts but only to recover from the shock,
when with an impetuosity . that knows
no bounds, the line again rushes on, and
up, and up until the enemy's works are
reached, leaving many of theircomrades
along the way stricken down by the
murderous fire poured into them ; they
reach the ditch and are soon climbing
upon the ramparts, and with the deadly
bayonet and clubbed musket, are deal
ing and receiving blows on every hand.
And ahl what is that we hear? There is
no mistaking that sound, we had often
heard it on similar occasions, it , is the
glad shout of victory, with it's refrain
wafted back to those who lav where
they fell. Once more Old Glory waves
on high, proclaiming victory for the flag
and American union.
In looking backward over those fear
ful four years of terrible suffering we
can scarcely at this late day realize the
immense cost of. this slave-holder's war.
A great price, a terrible retribution had

paid by another drawn with the sword."
Thus ended the slave-holders rebel lion ,
not as they hoped, but as the unseen
hand of an Almighty power had willed
The work of mustering out the Union
army was at once commenced and not
until the October following was thi
vast body of citizen soldiers returned to
their homes. Ihus peacefully and Joy
ously was the mightiest host ever called
to the field by a republic restored to the
tranquil paths of industry and thrift,
melting back to their homes by regi
ments and by companies, into quiet citi
zenship, with nothing to distinguish
them from others but the proud con-
ciousness of having served and saved
The total enrollment in the Union
army was, 2,772,388 ; number killed in
battle, 101,862; died of wounds in hog
pitals, 34.727 ; died of disease; 183,376
number of deaths in the field, 279,466
making the total namber of deaths in
the field, 379,365.
Regarding the enrollment, and losses
of the confederate army, I do not re
gard the statistics reliable, but such
as I have been able to obtain I here
Total enrollment of con federates, 700
000; killed in battle, 300,000; died of
wounds, 133,821 ;died of disease, 150,000.
The total loss of the productive forces
of the United States, resulting from this
gigantic internecine war, was not short
of 1,000,000 men, and in money, not
including the confederate side, the ap
palling sum of $6,189,929,908.58.
The percentage of the different nation
alitities represented in the Union army,
leaving out the fractions, was : United
States 75 per cent, German 8, Irish 7,
Egnlish 2, British America 2, other na
It will be seen by these statistics, that
three-fonrths of the men who respond
ed to the call of the government in
its peril for help, were natives of the
country they helped to save; while
hundreds of thousands of citizens of the
republic, no less loyal to the country of
their adoption for having been foreign
born, rallied round the flag inthe time of
need, with the same feelings of love as did
his brother, who, by reason of his birth
was a native instead of an adopted citi
sen of the country.
Danger of Over Confidence.
One of the principal reasons why the
Rural Northwest does not do as much
bragging about the superiority of Oregon
fruits as it otherwise might is that there
is nothing which is more dangerous than
over-conhdence in the
one's product. This is particularly true
in the matter of fruits. The people of a
favored fruit growing section may by
merit acquire a reputation for producing
some special kind of fruit of surpassing
merit, out whenever the growers of that
community become thoroughly convinced
that their product cannot be equalled
they are in grave danger. There are
plenty of examples of this. A few
fears ago the Yellow Newtown of the
'ajaro valley, California, brought the
highest market prices inthe world. The
apple growers of that valley firmly be
lie ved t h a t no ot I ler section cou I d com pet e
with them aud became careless. The
Oregon Newtown now has a long lead of
the l'ajaro valley Newtown in the mat
ter ot prices. Excessive confidence in
the quality of their product has led some
of the lemon growers of Southern Cali
fornia to engage in a careless wav with
inferior fruit in a competition in Eastern
markets with choice stock from Europe,
with a result disastrous to the reputation
of California lemons. In short, the man
who gets a swelled head also gets left.
The Danger is Politics.
Now that election time is approaching
and the intelligent public of this state
is anxiously looking forward to the usu
al biennial treat of oratory and informa
tion, it it proper to offer some sugges
tions in regard to the selection of speak
ers. tew politicians reanzo umt i
making speeches they dischnrgo wttn
their words a torrent of bacteria and
other microscopic organisms of different
varieties, the harmlul or harmless cnnr
acter of which depends upon the health
of the speaker. It can readily be seen
what a capacity lor gpreaaing evii me
unhealthy public orator is endowed
with. True, many of them sluice their
months and orgBiis of speech bo otten
with some form of alcoholic stimulant
and disinfectant that their breath is not
pliarirpd with rlearilv organisms as it
might be; but it is well known that the
mouth secretions of healthy people fre
quently contain such virulent microbes
as the staphylococcus pyrogenes aureus,
and the diplococcns lanceolatus, while
that diphtheria bacilli may be present in
the mouths of people who are not suffer
ing from the disease has been conclusive
ly and repeatedly demonstrated is a well
established fact. If so much danger at
tends the speaking of healthy people,
what must be the risk ot listening to long
uin,li.,l mweches from persons suffering
from consumption, intluenza.or any oth
er disease which affects the air passages,
and the worst of it is t hat the louder the
orator talks, and the wider he opens his
mouth, the ereater the number ol bac
teria bacilli, microbes and other organ
isms thrown out and the turtner iney
reucli. and when an orator coughs or
sneezes no one in the largest hall is safe.
Tt. wi . therefore, be seen that it is very
advisable that election orators should
talk as little as possible, and that the
public should stay away from such
speech-making as much as possible, and
trust to the report of the immune re
porters who attend the meetings. Ore
Oregon Insane Asylum.
No state in the Union has made better
provision for the care of her insane than
has Oregon. The Oregon state hospital
ia the most expensive of the state insti
tutions, but no attempt has ever been
made by the legislature to reduce tne
appropriations below -ihat is needed
for the proper care of those unfortunates
who are incapable, because ol mental
disease, of caring for themselves. That
the annual appropriation ot f I44,uuu lor
the support ot this institution lias ueen
productive of satisfactory results is
shown by the proportion of .insane pa
tients cured. The general average of
patients cured in the tin tea Mates is
20 per cent of the nuuibe'radmit ed. In
Oregon 32 per cent of the patients ad
mitted to tile a.-vlum are cured, l lie
inmates of the asylum - now number
slittlitlv more than 1200, and the insti
tuticn has capacity for about 160 more,
so that the state pill not be at any con
siderable expense ior improvements in
the near future. Aside trom the usual
repairs of ordinary wear, the expen
will be chiefly for maintenance. The
cost of maintenance is about $10 per
patient per month, which is considered
a reasonable rate, in view of the fact
that most of the inmates are in a meas
ure helpless and must receive individ
ual attention. Heppner Gazette.

Oh, what has b ate In store for her, this babe
with the golden hair?
Oh would that those tiny feet might tread a
path of roses fair.
Oh was It In a dream the mother saw her
darling's future life.
Was It In a dream she saw her babe as child,
maiden and wife?
And this is what she saw, looking adown the
vista of years.
As she shed o'er the grves of her fondest
hopes an agony of tears.
First she saw a gladsome, happy little school
With flying. golden hair and rosebud llpsand
teeth of pearl
She saw the laughing, childish face aud knew
the heart was free from care,
For the soul's pure, innocent iulr.h plainly
left lu imprint there.
Next tn the mother's vision comes the child
to maidennmid grown.
Sitting with clHqed hands and sad, bowed
head, thoughtful and alone
Oh, plain to the mother's heart was the cause
of nil her wiie,
She knew that Love's burning fires had
touched that bosom's icy snow.
Next she saw her at the altar, holding fast
her true hive's hand,
And with a trust that ne'er can falter, hiking
on the marriage band.
Oh, dainty, gnu-ehi! little bride, tn thy robes
of virgin while,
Life's highway stretches wide with thorns for
those tender feet, Umight.
Oh, two short years of happiness have passed
o'er the bright, golden head.
When the mother sees Her Willi a babe in Its

Shese.s the smile of Joy and pride on her
She knows whst she will have to bear and

Ah, that aged, careworn woman, with the

And can that be, the mother aks, the face
that lay against her breast.
And thow hard and toll-hlMincd hnnds the

Just one more view the mother has of her
child s future life.

Instead of relatives by kindred ties of love
