Tiiereiaeertuinly no Krerter mis

the duty of a political party to make
everybody prosperous. It Is not a
harmless delusion, because It teaches
the" Individual to expect his compe
tency at the hands of government,
and if he does not get It he will blame
the government, and thus out of the
ranks of Individual failure will come
the armies of discontent with hands
uplifted to destroy the government
that fails to produce prosperity. Not

The Fac-simile Signature of
the state treasury Is not compliment
ary to the intelligence of Oregon.
The whole treatment of the public
business as a private snap Is prima
facie evldenco of non-dovclopmcnt or
degeneracy. While the people of Or-
Kon are not degenerate, there is a sus
picion that the politics of this state
Is very much so. Those responsible
for the dark-lantern methods of con
ducting the state Hnances are not
helping the Republican party.
This paper cannot hope to have in
fluence with so high-headed a man as
Mayor Richardson. One of the first
acts of his career-was to harangue the
council to annul Its advertising con
tract with tins paper because it had
seen fit to call attention to the filthy
condition of Salem's streets and alloys,
exactly In accordance with the tenor of
tha'Stiyar'jown massage. He said
such a paper should not receive city
''Pap," thereby branding himself
nvith Inconsistency, etc. We do not
now care for that. We wish to call
public attention to the fact-that the
Mayor and council did not have the
-street unci uuoysTieanecI last spring,
u it was announced in the council it
would bo done, and that there have
been scattered cases of typhus, scarlet
fever and even diphtheria In this city
all spring and summer, a condition
unknown when the city has had its
annual cleaning and when Its sani
tation has been at all looked after.
What should be dono? The mayor Is
u medical man. He has a reputation
as a physician if not as a mayor. He
knows that ho as mayor and the
members of the council as Individ
uals cannot or do not look after
public sanitation. They cannot or
do not Inspect premises that are in
, the worst possible unsanitary condi
tion and direct and compol them to
be cleaned up. The mayor knows
that a Health board of three compe
tent independent citizens, outside of
the council, in charge of a sanitary
inspector who has power to order
premises pat in sanitary condition,
is the only way to reach the situation
and save further loss of life. Why
don't he have a bill Introduced in the
council to bring about this result?
It would meet with universal favor.
With the great bulk of Oregon peo
ple earning money in hop yards, the
fruit orchards, and harvest llelds,tliere
Is a more hopeful condition before us
in all lines of human enterprise. Bet
ter supported family life means more
business for the merchant, paying oil
of debts, moio money to clotho and
educate the children. Still nil living
and all business will necessarily be
upon close margins.
The hop pickers should strive to fill
just as many boxes as possible of clean
picked hops, so as to earn as much
clean money as possible and help keep
the quality of Oregon hops at the top
notch, thus earning for our state a
reputation that will make this Indus
try permanently profitable.

The federal injunction does not
seem to have materially affected the
great coal strike. Government by in
junction in an extreme urgency may
be justified as a last resort to protect
life and property, but It cannot be
depended upon to solve problems
growing out . of social conditions.
The rights of labor and capital, the
adjustment necessary between em
ployer and employed form the back
bone controversy of the ago and will
probably never be perfectly adjusted.
Thellne of progress lies In mutual
concessions and a friendly humane in
terest of each class In the welfare and
success of the other.

The perslslcut driving down of sil
ver by the gold press will produce a
reaction that will demonstrate that
there Is vitality in the silver mining
industry and value in silver as a
money metal. At the slightest un
favorable t rm, or accidental or artl
flcal scarcity of gold, the Inadequacy
and Injustice of the gold standard as
the sole measure of value will prove it
self in again undermining all prop
erty values and keeping low the prices
of products and labor. The voters
who supported Bryan will be found to
be a conservative class of citizens, who
while upholding law and order and re
specting the McKinley administra
tion cannot consent to prostrating
humanity beneath the Iron heel of or
ganized wealth. The surest tendency
of the times is indicated by the grasp
which the trusts and syndicates had
upon the new tariff law, and the man
ner in which they are driving up
prices of necessities of life out of all
proportion to the advance in wages.
Thare is no satisfaction given to
President Chapman's friends by his
eturn to the presidency of the state
university, after having filed his res
ignation under the circumstances sur
rounding that step, his flight to Wis
consin and his application for places
elsewhere. Those who haye sought
to uphold him are weary. They are
Wearv also of his duhhlnir in "Rnrono
City and public school politics, making
the university more and more a mere
local institution. The influences are
stonger today for Chapman's removal
and a wholesome cleaning out of that
institution in several other depart
ments than ever before. It is only
a question of finding a man of the
right sort who could be reasonably
sure to stay there ten years. There is
some danger, if Chapman Is removed,
that a politician HkeMcElroy would
go In. MoElrov is one of the pillars of
the Republican party, nis retire
ment from public life would cause

The important Europoan event the
past week was the conference between
President Faure of France, and the
czar of Russia. It was about as great
an epoch as a "conference" of a couple
of American millionaires. But tho
French newspapers express delight at
the fact that by tho mention of the
word "alliance" in the toasts of the
czar and President Faure on board
French cruiser Pothnau at Cronstadt,
the world has been informed that a
distinct understanding really exists
between France and Russia, and that
tho understanding Ms apparently in

of tho word "alliance," "such an ex

for nothing. It vvas no mere verbal

seo in It tho very soul and Inspiration
of tho alliance;"
Tiie Soleil remarks: "Something
is changed in tho world today. Tho
Franco-Russian alliance makes its
appearance as a great force in tho
world's international politics, In rad
