holes and wasted is an insult to every road supervisor in the
county, and to most of the farmers who assisted in working on
the roads. As an evidence of the state bf the roads, here is a
sample of what is being done every day, and surely the roads are
bad at this time of the year, if ever. Tuesday Mr. Ben Roberts,
who resides near Turner, came into The Capital Journal office,
and, when he was asked as to the condition of the roads, he said :
"I and a friend came in from my place this morning in a single
buggy. It is ten miles from Salem and near Turner, and we
drove into the livery barn here just one hour and six minutes
after leaving my place."
We submit that this is pretty good time to make over roads
that are a series of bottomless mud holes, but, fortunately, the
Marion county mud holes are much worse on paper than they
are in fact.
THE Alaskan railroad bill is one of the most important mat
ters of legislation which has passed congress in many
years. It means the rapid and permanent development of
Alaska, and this will have a splendid effect upon the busi
ness growth of the entire Pacific Northwest. Senator Chamber
lain did great work in securing the passage of so important a bill
at a single session of congress.
. With the construction of this railroad the actual develop
ment of Alaska will begin. It will not be a mining development,
nor a fisheries development, but an agricultural development.
For, be it known, Alaska is an agricultural country. Fair
banks, the principal city of the interior, and the probable objec
tive point of the railroad, is about on the same latitude as
Christina, Norway, and the agricultural valleys of Norway' and
Sweden as far north as the Alaskan valleys. The climate of in
land, Alaska, behind Mt. McKinley and the glaciers, is similar to
the climate of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, which re
cently have made such strides in agriculture. Moreover, there
has been enough actual farming in the interior to show that it is
When this great agricultural territory is opened for develop
ment, permanent towns and permanent communities will spring
up. Women and children will enter Alaska. They are compara
tively few there now.
Even the mining industry will take on new life, for much of
the gold-bearing gravel awaits the coming of adequate trans
portation facilities before it can be worked to advantage.
AMES M'NAUGHTON is a pretty big man, at least in the
opinion of James McNaughton. He is general manager of
the Calumet & Hecla Copper Mining company, one of the
. greatest robber corporations in the world, and Tuesday,
when a witness before the congressional committee . examining
into abuses at the mines, he defied the government, and said he
would not allow it to interfere between him and the strikers. He
said : "I know this is my pocketbook, and I am not going to al
low you or others to arbitrate to decide whose pocketbook it is."
As general manager, he says the statements made by anyone
that conflict with what he says are lies, and that anything any
body else says is apt to be a lie, and probably is. It is to be hoped
that Uncle Samuel considers Mr, McNaughton as having been
born in Missouri, and kindly but forcefully proceed to show him
a few things. Most of the employes Mr. McNaughton says are
foreigners, but he never batted an eye when he was forced to ad
mit that a majority of the stockholders were also foreigners.
We have here an American property, owned by foreigners,
worked by foreign labor, and the manager, who is a Scotchman,
tellilng the general governmentt o go to the devil. The chances
are it won't go, not even to please McNaughton, but the invita
tion is heartfelt and generous.

THE present troubles at rendleton come irom tne unioitu
nate fact that Pendleton took Evangelist Bulgin serious
ly. It seems to be a practice of certain evangelists to travel
over the country evangelizing and discovering in every
community a terrible state of affairs, which, they assume, it is
their duty to correct. The duty might be plain enough, if the
evangelists would first be sure that the things they discover are
true. Last year this same "evangelist," if we are not mistaken,
came to Salem and made all kin ds of charges about Salem girls,
which were utterly foundationless, but, fortunately, little or no
attention was paid to his charges, and he moved on to clean up
other places. It looks though, as if he had set a snare for the
ministerial association at Pendleton, if they, as is charged, made
the accusations they are credited with. It seems the association,
among other things, charged Rev. A. L. Lucas with being the son
of a woman who was a quarter-blood negro. We fail to see that
Mr. Lucas is to blame for that fact, if it is true, nor do we see
that there is anything to be ashamed of in it. A man may be one
eighth negro, or all negro, and be a man and a Christian just the
same. Indeed there can be no question as to which can be the
better, a man with a black skin and pure morals and a man
with a black heart and no morals at all, regardless of the color
of his hide. As to the charge that Mr. Lucas is "a champion
of the devil,' not being familiar with that person's affairs we are
unable to venture an opinion; but we suggest that Judge Phelps
and a Pendleton jury are abundantly able to pass on that ques
tion, living as they do in the home of the round-up and land of
the aboriginal cowboy. Besides Judge Phelps used to live at
The Dalles, and had an acquaint ance that reached clear to Shan
iko and the center of the world's sheep industry, and on top of
this he has waited for trains at Biggs when the sand was mov
ing, and we submit should be an expert on all matters appertain
ing to his Satanic majesty.
The fact that "Evangelist" Bulgin wants the governor to come
up at the head of the state troops, remove all officials, put in
special judges and call a picked jury to investigate charges
which he says he has abundant evidence to prove; shows that he
has not much confidence in his case, and less in the officials of
the state.
Bulgin should bulge out.
( I. II. Bingham yesterday filed his petition of nomination for
senator from Lane county on the Republican ticket. He has had
much previous experience in both houses of the legislature, and
during his incumbency made a record that will prove his most
valuable asset in the campaign. Mr. Bingham has a national ap
titude for legislative work, possesses untiring industry and has
a splendid grasp of public affairs, making his candidacy a mat
ter in which the entire state, and not Lane county alone, is in
terested. Senator Bingham was one of the legislative leaders
during his terms of service, almost uniformly leading in the
right direction, and The Capial Journal hopes to see him back
in his old seat again.
W. L. Finlay, state biologist, it is claimed, has saved the
state $37 by being able to tell the difference between a coyote
hide and that of a timber wolf. This is indeed cheering news,
and enables the state to put a credit mark on its ledger of $37 to
balance that $137,000 that the at ait e biologist, then also master
game warden, did not save last year. When $136,963 more are
saved, barring interest, Mr. Finlay's business for the state will
show that it just balances.

A lady who used it says: "Tbeatmos
