Thone Main 82.
Our morning contemporary Thursday morning has
this to say about taxes:
There in a reason why taxation hn increased In the past twelve yearn.
Those in eontrol have been politicians, elected by ami throujih the efforts of n
clique. Member of the. clique had to be rewunled. Jobs had to be furnished.
The taxpayers pnid the bills. A politician lives nt the expense of the public,
and it can hardly bo expected that he will pay the bills for tho public.
Here is a remarkable statement to come from a stand
pat paper. The legislature that passed the bills and cre
ated the larger part of the indebtedness of the state was
almost unanimously of its politics. The state officials,
with the exception of the governor alone, and the officers
of Marion county are practically all of the same political
faith. To whom then does our neighbor refer?
The state officials are good square men, Governor
West along with the others. Judge Bushey and the
county commissioners are both capable and honest. So
are the rest of the county officials. To whom then does
our neighbor allude when it says: "Those in control have
been politicians, elected and controlled by a clique."? To
whom does it refer when it says: "Members of the clique
ha.d to be rewarded, jobs had to be furnished. The tax
payers oaid the bills."?
Is this an attack on the state officials on account of
state expenses, or on the county officials on account of the
bills incurred in running the county?
The legislature provided funds for running the state's
business and it also provided that no deficiency can be
created. How then can the state officials create jobs or
make expenses not authorized by the legislature? They
can't; hence, it is fair to infer the attack must be on the
county officials. Few, if any, will believe the county is
not conducted honestly, or that if any mistakes have been
made they are other than such as are due to the fact that
men are human, therefore are not perfect.
The morning paper ought to be specific and not deal
in generalities which are likely to prove injurious to those
officials who are honest.
A child's quarrel in which one tells the other "take
your dishes and doll baby and go home. You can't play
in our yard, slide on our cellar door, swing on our gate,
scratch our pig's back or paddle in our rainwater barrel,"
is dignified and sensible compared to the actions of some
grown folks angry over the present war. Saint Saens, the
great French composer, says: "It is wrong for any
Frenchman to listen to Wagner's music, just as it would
be criminal to applaud a singer who had just injured one's
mother." Still Germany is fighting France. The German
musicians would boycott all French music because France
is fighting Germany, and all Italian sons because Italy
refused to stand in with Germany and Austria. Germany
also hesitates about allowing Shakespeare's plays to be
presented in her theatres since she is at war with Eng
land. The whole matter is "silliness gone to seed."
Dr. Brooks says dancing, and especially the new
dances, is of great benefit, giving proper exercise and
plenty of it. He asserts some of the new dances are "as
.soothing to adults as rocking is to an infant." A couple
of "fox trots" before breakfast, with a "Luluvado" for
lunch and a "Maxixe" as a dinner settler, may be among
the things prescribed instead of proscribed. When Grand
ma does the "hesitation" and Birdie takes a two-step as
an appetizer, materia mediea can hunt the shelf and the
prescription clerk ditch his mortar and pestle and take up
the study of window display ami the arrangement of face
creams and complexion dope.
A dispatch says: "Hon. II. A. Booth spoke to a big
audience at I'rineville Wednesday night for three hours."
Mr. Booth evidently forgets that he is endangering his
chances for election. A few such rounds as that will not
leave survivors enough to elect him. We are not belittlini?
Mr. Booth's oratorical abilities, but simply suggesting that
no audience can stand that sort of thing, survive and feel
friendly toward any candidate who soaks them that way.
An exchange editorially remarks that "a bachelor is
a man w ho loves himself so much he does not need a wo
man to help him."

In the turmoil surrounding the election for such poli
tical offices as United States senator, governor, etc., the
voters ought not to overlook the very important question
" ocicv.tuig auiiauic men iur uie omce oi justice oi me
supreme court. Too often the electorate discharge this
duty in an indifferent and nonchalent manner.. Under our
system of government the courts really occupy first place.
Every act of the legislature, the conduct of all civil offi
cers in the discharge of their duties and the private rights
of all citizens must in case of dispute be investigated and
determined by the courts. How necessary therefore it
becomes to have men of experience and judicial tempera
ment preside in our courts. Book learning alone will never
make a safe counsellor nor a wise judge. In addition to a
knowledge of the books there should be added a fund of

we wish to say that among these many candidates Hon.
William Galloway, of this city, is in our opinion well quali

Oregon has been called upon to decide so many of these
cases. In all he has exhibited great good common sense
and discharged his arduous duties efficiently and in an
urbane and courteous manner.

One effect of the submission of so many things to the
voters will be the voting down of many of them. The voter
who has not had the time, or for that matter, the inclina

their objects, which is generally told in language the av
erage layman cannot understand, will satisfy his con
science by making a cross in the no column. It is possible,
perhaps probable, every one of the proposed measures
will be beaten in this way.
Governor West and R. A. Booth are to meet in Port

for the office of United States senator and also to go into
the matter of his accumulating his present timber land
holdings. The Oregonian has promised to print every

and to do this Sunday. It is rather an odd proceeding, to
say the least, but it will perhaps furnish some interesting
