Most congressmen -would rather
spend $500 on their political fences
than to' go 'to the 'Philippine islands
. and spend it just to know how to rote
oa the Philippine tariff. Most of them
know how to-do that now. L
Those who say that a coalition of
the three powers, England, Japan and
the United States, is necessary in order
that we may be permitted to retain the
Philippine islands, aeem to be talking
like a field full of rabbits. i
That business and politics must
blend in this eountry seems j a surprise
to Mr. Dalrymple of Glasgow and oth
er scientific reformers. It is this very
fact, however, that makes ia republic

When a balance of trade comes to
the. -United States amounting to 500
millions of dollars per annum it is
idiotic; to talk about "a tariff that
keeps, a "Yankee from swapping.'" Or
do the pro-revisionists want to swap
that half; a thousand millions of the
other fellows money for 1 his cheap
manufactures? " j
Secretary Wilson predicts that Amer

pretty serioua, but just now the ordi

been in the habit of taking with him.
It would take a rise ia the price of
the other things to worry him.

How long halt ye Between two opin
ions f I Kings xviii:2L 1
Rev.; Charles Jefferson D. D. of New
York, writing ia ihe New York Herald,
takes op what he calls, man 's vacillat
ing character, and handles the subject
as follows, basing it on the text at the
head of this article: ; , V .
It is a question the prophet Elijah
put to the vacillating people of his
day, and , it is just as pertinent today
aa wlfen the prophet asked it.
The situation Elijah faced is repeat
ed In each succeeding generation. The
true religion and the false religion are
ever coming into conflict. The. religion
of truth is always-making war upon the
religion of error, the religion of the
spirit upon the religion of the flesh.
Christianity and the world are in ever
lasting conflict, and there ia much good
ia each. There is much that ia good in
Christianity every one acknowledges
this.4 Its principles are beautiful,' its
ideals are. white and shining.
No one ot intelligence can speak dis
respectfully of the teachings of Jesus
of Nazareth. Bat there is also some
thing that ' is pleasant in the . religion
of the worta. There is much of it that
is desirable and sweet. And, therefore,
men do not want to give up Christian
ity entirely, nor are they willing ; to
give up the religion of the world alto
gether. They simply halt between two
opinions. One of the characteristic
features of our day is the large number
of non-committal 'men. One of the prob
lems of the hour is to bring them to
Many forces have conspired to render
this an age of indecision. There have
been times when men have repudiated
Christianity with scorn. The crowd
has often shouted, ' Down with Jesus
of Nazareth, the impostor!" but to
day men refuse to express themselves.
When the preacher says, "How long
halt ye between two opinions f" his
congregation meets him with silence.
Men are becoming more and more lati
tudinarians. Their religious beliefs
have no ascertainable boundaries. In
the realm of spiritual matters they
walk in a haze. They have no eonvie
tions, and therefore no. conclusions.
The deep foundations of organized
Christianity are being worn away by
the corrosive action of the wavering
mind, j
; Indecision on vital matters is a sign
and source of weakness. Men who
boast of our freedom of thought ought
to do some thinking. Men who think
ought sorely sooner or later to reach
at least a few definite conclusions, and
having reached conclusions they are
under obligations to let the world know
wbat theyare. Much baa been said in
recent yeats about man's right to
think; the time has come to emphasize
his duty to think. Every right carries
alontr with it a corresponding duty. If
we have the right to think we are
bound to reach conclusions, and, hav
ing reached them, we are bound to ex
press them if they relate to problems
which affect the welfare of all the peo
ple. No man ia strong who has not
deep-seated convictions, and if a man
has convictions it is impossible for
him to smother them without blighting
his soul. It is the man who ia afraid
of speaking his mind who comes at
last to have no mind- at all.
While there can be no doubt that Dr.
Jefferson's standard for man is more or
less correct, there is much reason to
doubt the truthfulness of his estimate
of man. No doubt a great 'many men
hare difficulty in taking sides, fail to
decide with promptness or to take a
decisive position, yet the majority of
thinking men. men of education and
affairs, are usually to be found on one
side or the other of most great ques
tions. While perhaps many are not ac
tive religionists, one is rarely encoun
tered who has not strong religious
opinions and who on occasion will hesi
tate to -express them.
On polities men are usually pre
pared at any time to declare their po
sitions. The trouble ia that too many
would-be retormers and would-be lead
ers, who see the world. topsy turvy
and going to the oemnition bow-wows,
when they hnd men who refuse to
agree- with them, eharge those men
with weakness, with preferring graft,
etc., with being vacillating and not
taking a stand. The only thing is all
men do not see alike, nor agree on all
subjects, and each haa his right to
maintain his opinion without being
charged with all the crimes of tbe dee
alogue. j l '.
So far iaa it : being man 'a . duty to
express his opinions ' at alt times, in
season' and out of season, ia concerned,
the general love of personal peace pre
vents such action. In this day when,
aa Dr. Jefferson says, men' have grown
to be largely latitudinarians, it ia this
of itself that makes men keep sileaee,
awaiting , the t psychological moment
to air their ideas and opinions. f 'i
This sdence however, does not indi
cate that , they have no opinions.
i '. ; . PARTY." ' .
"The Tribune will recognize no dif
ference between Republicans and Dem
ocrats in the elections next fall. The
men to be elected have no party duties
to perform, and it is - unimportant
whether they belong to one party. or
another or. to no party. It is ridicu
lous to choose a man for a body so tx-
closivelr Vreatd for bnaiaesa nrtooafof these verr diverse exhibits, the dog

system, and will endeavor to adminis
ter -the duties of his office with .strict
regard to his public obligations. The
same is true ox the judges. It ought
not to matter whether a judge is a
member of one party or the other if he
ia an honest man, a good lawyer and
an npright eitizea." . : .
The above plain remarks-are from
that excellent Republican? newspaper,
the Chicago Tribune. - That -. is, the
Tribune is Republican in national and
generally in state polities. Cireum
stances might ' possibly arise "among
which it woula not be so. It would not
support Brvan for president, - for in
stance, because it fears him on aeeount
of his money views, but it might sup
port Folk or Douglas or Jerome
against some Republicans that might
be named. But however that might be,
it has no polities in municipal elections
or as to the jnmeiary. It supported
Harlan (uepuoiiean) zor mayor m tne
recent municipal contest." not because
he is a Republican, But because he is
a reformer .within -and sometime
without his own party. What a eon
treat between the utterance quoted
and the daily pleas made in the recent
municipal campaign in this city, for
party regularity for votes for" Repub
lican candidates solely because - they
were Republicans. What a respect the
mass . of ' intelligent : and discerning
readers must have for a Republican
paper like the Chicago Tribune. rort
land Journal. ' .
How 'easy it is for 'the Democratic
brethren to commend President Roose
velt 'a free trade or tariff reform ideas
or those of some ' member of his cabi
net in connection with the Panama' ca
nal; the policy of those weak-kneed
Republicans who have succumbed to
the cries of the enemies -of protection
and have joined them in the demand
for tariff revision. How they join in
the chorus when j any Republican or
ReDublican newspaper demands that
party be forgotten in the interest of
some man or set of men. How they
applaud the appointment of some mug
- a
wump to office, when the appointment
is made by a Republican.
However, let it be the other way,
Let Democrats be the parties showing
laxity in their partjr fealty and hear
the roar. ,

The following letter" from one of
Oregon's esteemed pioneers, one who
followed the Lewis and Clark way
ia 1844, the last year the white man
was compelled by hunger to cat the
flesh of dogs as food, is certainly
apropoa. There is no doubt at all that
the,' exhibit of the Igorrotes from the
Philippine Islands will be very inter
esting and will make a very attractive
feature of the fair; but Ezra Meeker,
the emblem of thetrail blazer, and one
of a type now fast disappearing, the
early pioneer, should have a place on
the fair grounds, even though we have
to do without the Igrrotes.
. This pioneer says:
The writer was at Portland on Sa
lem Day, but the princlpsl reason was
that pioneer day succeeded, and this
took me to pioneer headquarters at the
city halL 1 there met a live pioneer,
Ezra Meeker of Washington, who con
ceived that the exhibition- of the fam
ily wagon and its motive power, would
be aa excellent way of impressing oa
the miavda ot- the young of today the
chief means of winning old Oregon by
the strongest 'of the three points of ti
tle, discovery, exploration, occupation,
the last being the most important.
' Perceiving this Jast". fact, President
Goode made Mr. Meeker's wagon and
team welcome aad alloted him space,
but the catch-penny exhibit of Igor
rotes, which first turned away because
the conditions of i ts promotion . could
not be met, aa this pioneer understood,
now returns," and as all apace- ia now
occupied,; Mr: 'Meeker 'a .team, aad wa

appealing to public sentiment : against

California is going to ' capture the
entire control of a great, commercial
port of Oregon if Oregon capitalists
and merchants1 don't awaken to the sit
uation. We reier to , a district 182
miles nearer to .Portland,' too, than te
Sacramento the Klamath river ' coun
try. The people of Klamath Falls have
subscribed a subsidy of $85,000 toward
the building of a railway leading out
to California, and San Francisco and
Sacramento capitalists have added 15,-
000 to that
Portlandera and Oregonians seem to
be asleep to their opportunities, ever
waiting for some one else to do 'things
for them.
Don't Portland know what it loses
if it lets Klamath Falls become - eon
nectcd with California f It loses the
trade of a district 150 miles square. Of
this eountry the secretary of the cham
ber of commerce of Klamath Falls tells
the following to the Sacramento Un
ion: ...
"The Klamath river country is an
empire in and by itself. It is bigger
than Massachusetts and comprises all
that part of the extreme northern por
tion of the state that lies east of the
Sierra Nevadas, and Southern Oregon
east of the Cascades. It ia isolated be
cause it has no railroad communica
tion with the outside world, and be
cause of the topography of the country
it properly belongs to California. What
good we have had has come from Cali
fornia, and many of our people would
not object to seeing the statu line
drawn a little farther north. .
' But the Klamath river .country is
on the road to advancement,,, The sec-

tion of over 400,000 acres in the valley
and $4,400,000 baa been act aside for
the work, of which $1,000,000 is avail
able for immediate use. Klamath Falls
has , a population 'of 1000 people, and
in the entire county there are but 6000.
The industry at present is -cattle rais
ing, and lasfyear the Klamath river
section drove 50,000 head of cattle into
California. Having no outlet, we raise
nothing that we cannot drive out. We
have -150,000 acres of the finest lake
bed on earth, and it will raise anything
that is planted on it."
Portland should work to secure the
completion of the Corvallis and East
ern to Eastern Oregon and then q the
Klamath country. It is one of the
most feasible routes and would develop
a magnificent country in between its
present terminus and . the Klamath ba
sin, in addition to bringing Southeast
ern Oregon in touch with Oregon's com
mercial center.
Wiir Portland ever, wake upf Time
will tell; but in the meantime the trade
of a great empire will be turned to
ward the south. " r-.-.-.
The Oregonian 's leading editorial of
yesterday morning is so unfair that its
unfairness will be evident- to any one
who read The Statesman's editorial of
Friday morning entitled "Our Lands
Again." '
Mr. Heney did not secure the convic
tion of Puter. Watson, et al. alone, any
more than John Halt did.. In faet, the
credit of this action. is due Mr. Hall.
. The SUteeman calls "attacking Ore
gon ; and Oregonians," the publication
of such scurrilous matter as that by
Richard Lloyd Jones, which indicates
that every man from the highest to
the lowest in Oregon has been guilty
of conspiracy to defraud the govern
ment. That "Oregon has for years
been afflieted with a cancer known as
'the land conscience. It has fastened it
self upon its highest as well as its
humblest citizens," indicating that all
ita citizens ! are infected with it, is
what The statesman takes exception
to. It finds fault with , a writer who
insists on "publishing to the; world as
fact that the entire people of a great
state have been guilty of crime, and
simply live o fob the government. It
also finds fault ' with any newspaper
whose writers scatter as truth every
outspoken suspicion of men who are its
political enemies, for political reasons
and whom rnlnmnt in nmatiintxl 4n
rly authorized to hear the evidence
and to weigh it ca reeerved; from the1
- 1 mouths of witnesses who tell only what
i they know.4 ' '
This doea not necessarily , indicate
that a newspaper like The Statesman
is political ring 'or land ring organ.
To its friends, denial of such a 'charge
is unnecessary; to those acquainted
with the Oregonian it is also unneces
sary. Others will learn the truth in
time, as they become acquainted with
conditions in Oregon. , '
All, however, will 'agree with The
Statesman in ita : complaint - against
those who charge that Oregon ia a hot
bed of graft aad corruption,-and . its
people grafters and corruptionists.
A new Daniel has come to judgment
in the person of Lawyer Chas. A. Gard
ner of New York, who rejoices as the
powers of - the president expand until
they ; became more and more kingly.
He7says, af ter recounting how the
president's powera have grown until
hm aM the nremdent in everv appointee
of the government, and that we have j
entered still on a new era of political
development in which the president is
all, is "it," is thd plein'pouvioraa
age of further" executive , expansion.
This pleases Gardiner, and his re
frain is as follows: : t v
"I rejoiee in such a president, I ex
ult in such an executive., I glory in
such a chief magistrate; in all his pro
portions . a majestic, constitutional
figure, uncontrolled by congress, unre
strained by" the courts, vested with
plenary constitutional power and ab
solute constitutional discretion, a sov
ereign ' over 80,000,000 people and the
servant of 80,000,000 sovereigns; and
grading up to his colossal stature are
all the departments of -government,
centering in him is a hierarchy of office
and a hierarchy of power as well, and
running through the whole vast organ
( ism is a constitutional appeal over and
beyond the. courts and congress and
the senate on up to the president him
self, in whom reposes the highest dis
cretion of the government, and beyond
whom there exists in the republic no
human discretion whatsoever except
the omnipotent judgment of the
mighty and multitudinous tribunal of
the people." .
That there is room for difference of
opinion as to this matter is .not to be
doubted, and as to the advisability of
the extension of . executive functions.
The original idea of this government
was based on triunal division of pow
ers. The congress was the originator
of legislative action, and its .promotor.
The president exercised . the function
of. executing the laws,, while the courts
held the connective power. A presi
dent with kingly powers replacing the
other now co-ordinate branches of the
government, would hardly suit the
people -of. this nation. lie would soon

hopeful, but doubting. It is too soon
to prononnee. upon so radical a change,
but it does seem as" if all the evils
of ."what is everyboly a business is
nobody's business,' hovers about this
experiment.' It has perhaps robbed the
boss of some of his power in his pliant
tooL the convention, and be has not
yet so adapted himself to new condi
tions, as to organize and dictate the
party candidates completely at the
primaries.. Meanwhile, the 'good citi
zen' is still content with being just
'good' and leaves polities to the poli-
tcians. The consequence is that in the
Republican party (which holda the
greatest caances zor tae prizes! Is a

for many offices , there are no eandi-

in the line of progress because it re
moves veils and secrecies, but just so
long as polities brings plums, yon will
find plum hunters; and it is they, not
the 'good citizen,' who will by work
and organization capture the plum tree.
The remedy is either to rob politics
of its tremendous. power over our prop
erty ; in ' taxes, contracts for improve
ments, franchise granting, etc, and
bring it more and more to the basis
of merely affording peace and protec
tion, or else to have the very best men
in the community hold office. This last
seems a . perpetual failure and t never
more so than v in the nominations at

it is because, as Colonel AVowl says,
there "is a stampede of self-appointed
candidates." He might have gone a
little further and accounted in another
large measure for the doubting Msi
tion of many concerning the efficacy
of this law, in that it will usually
mean, for this same reason, the nomin
ation of some man by so small a plural
ity as to be a nomination by a value
less minority. The jtesult will' be, :too
often, we fear, defeat of the minority
nominee, because the many others will
feel that it "was not his butt in,' to
use a slang phrase. Conventions may
have had this objeteionable features,
and sometimes may have erred in the
selection of candidates, but in the main
in the majority of cases this selection
of a candidate was made 'for 'reasons
combining fitness, geographical loca
tion, availability and the fact that such
selection would also smooth . over the
factional fights of a party. The new
law permits consideration of none of
these, at times very important things
if party success is desired. If it is
simply to be a government by indi
viduals, however, and the '"right of
the majority to rule" is to bo cut out
