The fact that the river Is practically
unnnvlgablo for several months each
car works a severe hardship on those
who must depend on it, for gettlnn
their crops to market, and It retards
the settlement and development of
the country tributary to it.
The United Slates engineers have
worked out a plan for giving the val
ley an open river the year round, one
that they claim Is practical and cer
tain In its results, that will permit
beats of good size to run tho year
reiinil, and will Mill leavo the river
1 radically as open as It Is now for
(lie winter floods.
Tho people of tho whole va'ley
should get behind this movement, and
bring such pressure to bear on con
gress that. It may be put in execution.
The newspapers of the valley will, 111
this, as In all other things, do their
bt st, and thero Is no reason why suf
ficient pressure cannot be put on con
gress to get tho necessary appropria
tions, Tho Capital Journal purposes giving
the engineers' plana alluded to the
fullest publicity It can, and will In the
near future publish the plans In detail.
Suffice It for tho present, that the pro
posed Bystem provides for a series of
leeks and dams, tho latter so arranged
that they can be lowered in time of
high, water, so that the river can have
the whole of its channel to carry Its
flood waters unhampered by them.
Such dams, so It Is said, are In use
on the Ohio, and are a success.
Another thing In this connection Is
that with these dams, the waste water
furnishes vast power, which could bo
utilized In pumping water onto adja
cent lands for Irrigation. And this
would open up a big field for growing
late garden vegetables for the Port
The soil Is most prolific In tho world
and with water for Irrigation, the
truck growers would sure have a down
hill pull In accumulating a big bank

ONU week more' nnd the newspapers
at least will be relieved of a Job
lot of mall that surely Is a nuisance of
largo proportions. Political publicity
bureaus, campaign managers, national
ami state, Republican, Democratic and
all other brands, kinds and breeds,
have for the past three mouths bad
job offices and typewrters lmsy pre
paring campaign "literature," a goodly
pillion of which Is unloaded on the
newspapers with request to publish, a
request that is certainly not complied
villi. If Tln Journal bad reprinted,
which by the way It could not Inside

thousands of dollars.

That big blast at Monroe was fired
Wednesday. At places the dirt and

It was a rather tame affair, as a show.

John D.'s coal oil Is so poor that
Medford finds Itself unable to make
wishes to say to many who have sent
political articles to it for publication,
and which did not appear In Its col
umns, that It. was not on account of
the subject matter they were not
printed, but for lack of space. Con
tributors are apt to reason, "My article
was not very long and surely The
Journal could have found spac.o for
It." This is true, but tho fact Is over
looked that tbero are dozens and doz
ens of others each III tho samo boat.
The Individual articles were not so
long, but with from a dozen to twenty
each day, it can easl'y bo soon that
(hero would bo no room for anything
else, llesldes, Just so soon as ono per
son's article Is published, there are a
half-dozen or more "replies," nnd if
these are published in turn, there are
as many criticisms for each of them
until the brood gets beyond control.
A drop of water is not large, but col

Every newspaper man from Maine

about at. an end. Much more so than
those In other pursuits, for they aro
loaded down, swamped, with tons of
political trash, that will cease from
troubling after November ..
An "ex-teacher" in the I, Inn County
Advocate calls attention to the care
tint Is given to raising horses, cattle,
and other stock, the amount, of money
eiended therefor, and all that sort of
argument, and deplores that nothing
is done towards raising better, strong
er ami healthier children, Ho is trend
ing on rather forbidden ground, for
his argument followed to its legitimate
c occlusion, would naturally end in the
selection of sires and breeding for
"traits"-and all that sort of thing, and
for this, w ith all our fads and fancies,
the American people are hardly ready
yet. There may be a time when In
stead of saying a man is tho son of
Mr. and Mis. American, that his pedi

blooded stock, but anyway, If this dots
happen, It will be In the remote future.

" lie discussion In this department
Let both sides of all matters
be fully brought out It is not
the purpose of this newspaper to
I do the thinking for Its readers.
That Dull Doom- Socialist.
In his apology to his "Socialist
friends," Mr. Ira Vernon declares his
political creed, and then hooraya for
"Teddy" who stnnds for the very op
posite of that creed. But this Is nbout
as nenr to consistent political action
as some people ever get.
Mr, Roosevelt favors tho control of
the country's Industry by a board to
be appointed by himself. This is a
centralization of power beyond the
wildest dreams of any potentate on
earth. It Is to nationalize Industry
for the trusts so that a strike would
bo treason against the government,
would be put down by the V. S. army
and tho agitator would be a traitor to
bo dealt with by court martial. A
fine prospect, 'that, for one who pro
fesses adherence to 'collective own
ership and democratic management
of tho mills." ' -W-
When you have put the control of
all general Industry Into the hands of
one man, you have completed a des
