THE EUGENE REGISTER of Friday morning says editorially: "A
skunk farm has just beon started down in Marion county. There ought
to bo no trouble in getting it stocked."
Now, you look horo, Brother Jojikinsl Wo are not going to jump in
and kick about this assertion, because you may not have meant to con
voy the idea that the location of that perfume distilling farm was the main
reason for your optimistic opinion of its being stocked so eusily, but we havo
our doubts.
A rather poppory judgo down In Arkansas, who hud graduated from the
printer's case, taken up the ignoble calling of tlio law and finally reached the
bonch from the bar, like lots of othors in wot torritory, getting vexed at a stut
tering attorney, colunteered the statement that Bald uttorney was a fool. The
attorney, in attempting to change tho judge 's opinion, got back with: "I am
n-n n ot 10 b-b-b lg a d-d d f f-ool as yy-y-cur honor t t-t okes mo to be."
"All right, Mr. Jonkins, all right," laughed the judgo, "but horeafter you
take tho court's advice and thin-space your language."
IF SALEM should adopt the commission form of government at any timo, it
would be eminently proper to soloct a mnnngor from boiiio other city, prof
orably La Grande, which honored Salem by selecting I manager from
among her citizens. It is in other respects tho bent thing to do for the
reason that the munnger begins his work with no factious against him.
Take any man for instance, from Salem, and put him in as commissioner, may
or, manager, or whatever tho title may bo, of this city, and he would begin
his work with all kinds of opposition. This would bo especially true of any
man who, lilio Mr. Lufky, had held tho office of councilman, for ho would
have necessarily antagonized boiiio, and would have an unfriendly element to
contend with from tho Blurt Mr. Lafky goes to his work in La Grando with
out this handicap, and tho entire community will be pleased to hear that ho
has given La Grande an administration that will be cminontly satisfactory to
thorn. In tho meanwhile wo will all keop an oyo on La Grande, if for no other
reason, just! to see what a Salem man can do when ho gets a froo hand and a
chance to carry out his ideas.

Kd. Capital Journal: Pome rather
severe criticism has'tnllowed the court
for his division on tho election matter.
This is naturnl and to bo expected. Hut
iu such raso it Is not well to Impute
wrong motives. It should be remem
bered that courts have their prejudices
its well as the rest of ua, Abraham
Lincoln disagreed with the I)Ted Scott
decision of the V. 8. Supreme Court,
but his plun was to have tho decision
reversed by changing tho personel of
the court. That Is to say, put in Judges
whose prejudices turn the other, way.
When a court from training or habit
itinera himself agnlnst the people the
remedy la to exchange him for another
tliid at the ballot, box, That la the way
we socialists expect to get our eourt
rulings. When we elivt a president he
will fill the vacancies on the federal
court with socialists, not to disregard
the law, but to Interpret It according
to socialism. Vou see, the law Is writ
ten on rubber and can be stretched In
any shape end to any length, So, always
select your judges with a view to what,
vou waut done,
N, 11. That action of the city eoun
that was critlclred by the sourt
nna not Intruded, to rvsuritvt a dead
law, but It was meant to validate a
'ertain resist rut ion of votes for the city
election. To an outsider not wise to
'lie law it looks like the council wns
right. n.
Ow.l resolutions art all right if they
hn;'eu to maks good.
