The much talked of war tax is looked upon evidently
,y many as an additional tax forced on America by the
war? It is nothing of the kind. The people of America
have to pay the expense of running the government a -ways.

A non-partisan judiciary would be a splendid advance

C. S. Moores, of Portland, who is the republican party
of Oregon, if we may believe his own utterances, has
muzzled Withycombe, candidate for governor, and taken
full responsibility for the campaign of Booth ror sena

nowadays through the columns of the Oregonian, that

Moores is a standpatter. He has always stood for the old
order, the convention and the machine, as opposed w uie
direct primary and the right of the people to select then
own candidates. He questions their intelligence or their

that only a select few are capable of self-government m

a tv,o fimm mt riiip. it is disclosed that the value of
the American farm products for the year 1914 is approxi
mately $10,000,000,000. The cost of the European war for
all parties thereto is estimated at $21,000,000 a day. This
in a year would amount to $7,()();,000,000. In other words,
the products of the American farms this year would pay
all the expenses of the war for a year and leave a balance
of $2,:i:'.5,000,000. Truly, this farm of your Uncle Sam
uel's is "some ranch."
