THE DEMAND FOR BEAUTIFUL TOWNSITE PROPERTY.
The strongest and most growing idea that gives value to real
estate is the demand for more beautiful townsite additions.
Look at the way people are snapping up the lot3 in Kingwood
Fark because the site i3 planned with beauty as an asset.
There has not been laid out around Salem a single beautiful
addition on a large scale to make a desirable residence section on
the lines of modern ideas of city building.
Many years ago Frank Derby laid off Morningside for that
purpose, but he was 15 years ahead of the times.
But Salem has grown and expanded until there is nothing but
inside property left, and the city is slopping over across the
Indications are that it will grow very fast in that direction,
for the reason that taxes are low over there.
The lectures to be given in this city by Howard Evarts Weed
will awaken Salemites to their lost opportunities.
The failure of this city to secure Fairmount Park for a public
recreation park was a downright disgrace.
There are still other beauty spot3 left that should be taken
over by the city before it is too late.
THE COUNTRY WILL BE SAVED.
When the politicians cannot do anything else they have the
public school children parade.
The news comes that Gifford Pinchot endorses'the Boy Scouts,
and there is great rejoicing among the lollypops.
The great army of aristocracy that is multiplying under na
tional paternalism is marching on with the Boy Scouts.
Poor, innocent Boy Scouts, ye know not to what base uses you
are put to by the predatory looters of the national government.
. More departments, more officials, more bureaus, thousands of
new clerks and parasites created at each session of congress.
Congressman Hawley, who was a very good history teacher in
the days of the old Salem Institute, helps along the game.
For is he not one of the educated class himself, for whom the
public and the government must provide?
The pauperizing processes that are swallowing up the earn
ings of the people to expand officialism are immense.
From Pinchotism down to Boy Scouts they represent preda
tory, aggressive "sassiety" that plunders the producer.
When the load gets heavy enough there will be a revolt, and
Borne man in overalls will become President.
ONLY THE RECALL WILL STOP DAWDLING AWAY THE
. PUBLIC REVENUES. .
The Capital Journal has voiced a protest against the two per
cent gross earnings corporation tax being stipulated away by
Of course, the people do not know how it was done, but some
official did it.and it has been done.and the tax voted by the peo
ple has been nullified.
Instead of $250,000 to $500,000 indirect taxes being collected
from great trusts and untaxed corporations, this sum must be
raised by a direct tax on land.
President Taft rejoices that the supreme court of the United
States has upheld the corporation gross earnings tax that will be
putting $25,000,000 a year into Uncle Sam's cash box.
In Oregon the supreme courthas upheld this tax law enacted
by the people, and the supreme court of the United States will
enact it if they ever reach the case.
But by "implication" the official representatives of the trusts
who masquerade before the people as "Republicans" have re
pealed the gross earnings tax enacted by the people.
Why doth not the great and mighty state grange get up and
howl at this outrage committed in Oregon against the power of
the people under direct legislation?
Shall their baby be strangled in its cradle before it ever got
onto its feet, and nobody even be called down for the outrage?
The gang has found ways to set aside the fruits of the initia
tive and referendum, and nobody seems to even peep.
Shall we not even hear a peep from the lawgiver at Oregon
City, and will he not investigate and apply the recall to tho
criminal who has diddled away at least a quarter of a million of

London, March 1. Declaring
that Information based on the most
authentic sources, Japanese friend
ship with Mexico Is the real cause of
American Army maneuvers, an
American correspondent sends the
following dispatch, whclh was print
ed In the Standard today:
"Mexican Intimacy with Japan Is
Increasing to such an extent as to
threaten America with the possibili
ty of a fliwik attack In the event of
war for the mastery of the Pacific.
That Is the real reason for the mass
ing of the American army In Texas
"The demonstration is a warning
to Mexico and a notification to Ja
rr.in that the United States will not
tolerate the establishment of a pro
Mexican government. America Is
fully determined to go to any extreme
to end the dunger of Japanese using
Mexico na a naval base for future op
erations against America. The situ
ation could not be more serous.
"This Information cames from a
source tha authenticity of which is

strong anti-American feeling among
certain leading Mexicans, causing
them to foster the most cordial fee

mlstnkeable evidence that eminent
Mexicans, gradually obtaining a po
sition where they can dictate Mexi
co's foreign policy, have become bold
er In their willingness to ally them
selves with Japivn.
"Some have even carried their
pro-Japanese proclivities to the ex
tent of expressing a willingness to
give Japan a naval base on the Mex
ican coast. The Japanese diplomats
would not accent openly such o con
cession, knowing that so complete a
violation of the Monroe doctrine

"One of two eventualities must be
the outcome. Either President Taft
will be assured In a manner having
no possibility of doubt that Mexico
will ceasa her Intimacy with Japan
or tho American army will enter
Mexico, ostensibly to restore order

Interests, but really to destroy utter
ly the power of those Mexicans whose
hostility to the United States Is seek
