The attempt of the Oregonian to elect the speaker of
the house in advance of the meeting of the legislature doe?
not appeal strongly to the Portland Evening Telegram.
It sees little hope for a profitable session, as far as the
people are concerned, if Ben Selling's selection by the Ore
gonian is ratified by the legislators. It says:
A desperate effort will bo made this year us usual t control tlio legislative
pessioa from the outside. l:i pant yearn it liuu been easy to do it. Trades mid
dickers on tin' rpenl;orship were nil Mint were needed; everything else followed
UK n mutter of course. Willi tlie Speaker bound hand and foot, with his com
mittee appointments parceled out in udvance, the way was greased fur just the
iort of legislation that suited private nnd special interests. No matter how high
minded a member might be lie either threw up his hands in despair or yielded
to the machine in order to (ret through the very legislation to effect which lie
bad been elected and for which lie was pledged to his constituents. The control
wns in the hands of lawyers and they under the control of piivnte interests.
Jlcing lawveiM they could represent clients in the Legislature whilst other mem
bers, with "less fortunate professional iinehorago, were compelled to adhere to a
different standard of ethics.
The coming legislative body ranks high among the citizens of the state.
With a proper chance they will give a good return ia service for the honor that
lias been conferred upon theiii. Hut if the usual programme is carried oat and
they are left at the mercy of the machine they will find themselves quite as help
less' as other honest legislators have been in the past. It is this that should be
avoided. There are certain signs of n desperate fight ahead to gain the control
(if the Legislature for exploitation nad sinister purposes. If it succeeds the liver
nge member will be led like sheep to the shambles. On the other hand should
this movement fail we may look for a legislative session that will reflect credit
upon the whole body and in u measure restore public confidence in Legislatures,
which has been fast fading nway.
The war in Europe, throwing the two Americas on
their own resources, has also brought the nations of the
two continents in closer touch. Instead of relying on Eu
rope, they are driven to rely on each other. The Latin
nations have turned to us for practically all the things
they need, and which Europe heretofore furnished them.
It is up to the American manufacturer to grasp the op
portunity and establish trade relations on a firm basis.
Of course, when the war is over, much of this trade will
revert to old channels, for habit is strong, but the entering
wedge will have been driven and the United States can
depend on a steadily growing trade with the countries
south of us. We need this outlet, too, and will need it
wore if the war lasts, as Kitchener predicts, for three
years, for we have lost a trade worth more than $:WO,00(),
000 a year in being shut out of Germany.
The generous sympathy of all America at least, if not
of all the civilized world, goes out to that great man, Edi
son, whose fortune, certainly honestly acquired if ever
one was, went up in smoke Wednesday night. The world
owes him much, for he has made it a better, a happier and,
surely a much more comfortable world. The world, too.
admires his pluck, for while the fire was still burning that
left him poor, he smilingly said that though "past Go he
would have to begin over again." "The world loves a
good loser," and he has proved a plucky one. Of all the
splendid things he did for the world, there is none finer
than the example he set in facing what most would call
"overwhelming calamity." The world today places him
on a higher pedestal than ever.
It is costing the czar something to stick to his prohibi
tion principles. Returns from his internal revenue, de
partment show receipts for September from the czar's
liquor monopoly were $852,000, which is $:!8,2!)8,21o less
than for the same month in 191:5. With the American love
of money it is quite natural to wonder how many real
ardent prohibitionists in this country could resist the
temptation to fall off the water wagon at $1,250,000 a
day. There may be some, there may be many, that would
deliberately deprive themselves of that daily income, but
there are anyway some who would do a few hesitation
steps before doing it. The czar is certainly to be credit
ed with being unselfish in his desire to make Russia a
sober nation.
Now comes a scientist and not only asserts that steel
can be made many times stronger than it is, but does the
"show me" act to a big audience. If this claim proves
true, it will revolutionize building of all kinds as well as
guns, armament and fortifications. It may. be just as
well that the county court postponed the building of the
steel bridge, as there may be time in which to get the new
steel and at the same time a much stronger and lighter
bridge. One of the advantages claimed by the discoverer
is that skyscrapers can be run up to 100 stories or more.
This may or may not be an improvement, but it does look
as though there was room enough left on the earth and
nearer the ground for humans to live and do business on.

Bernard Shaw is in the limelight again, this time by j
boldly condemning his country for going to war. He
preaches this at all times and on all occasions. Governor I
Johnson had better keep a watchful eye on Bernard, for
with his advertising abilities and certain other character- '
istics he might be a lively rival for second place on the :
ticket in 1910. I

The proverb says: "As the priest chants the sacristan
responds." The same thing happens in Massachusetts, or
rather in Washington city, with two bean-eaters in the
choir. When Father-in-law Lodge brays in the senate
the stridant voice of Son-in-law Gardner is soon after
heard "burroing" in the refrain.
If Teddy had not broken out around the mouth in that
attack on Wilson, and so uncovered his slumbering bel
ligerency, which he has managed to keep out of sight for
almost a year, he might have been awarded that Nobel
peace prize. With Teddy going a whole year between
eruptions he would certainly have had first as well as
second and third right to the prize.

The kaiser says he "will live to see France and Ger
many united by the ties of sincere friendship." It is hoped
this may prove true, but from the present starter toward
that end it is fair to presume that the kaiser expects to
reach the age of some of the more acutely adult patriarchs.
