In spite of the prediction to the contrary by the express
companies, the government parcel post system was a suc
cess from the beginning. It even excelled the expectations
of its most sanguine advocates. And now the post office
department is reported to be working out a plan for the
furtherance of our export trade through a radical ex
tension of the foreign parcel post service. The details
have not been made public, but it is understood that the
plan contemplates taking off the present size and weight
restrictions and making it possible to mail abroad any
thing that can now be mailed from one point to another
in the United States.
The purpose is to bring the American manufacturer
into direct relations with the foreign merchant or consum
er. Hitherto the biggest manufacturers have had an ad-
cantage in the export trade, because they alone could af
ford the expense of developing it. The object of the gov
ernment in this new project is said to be to give every
body an equal chance at the foreign markets, just as the
domestic parcel post has already served to equalize oppor
tunities in our own markets.
It looks like an admirable move. The federal trade
commission is understood to be directly interested in it,
along with the general promotion of export trade, al
though it was supposed to be primarily created to "regu
late" business. Maybe business doesn't need so much
regulating any more as the people thought. Anyhow, it
is well to have the various administrative departments of
the government co-operating in a campaign to win all
possible legitimate trade advantages abroad for American
business, and in fostering business democracy in both our
export and domestic commerce, is the conclusion of one
of our able editorial exchanges, and we quite agree with
that opinion.
There are things about the management of the state
fair that might be much improved if somebody connected
with its affair would only stop and think a moment.
Here is one of them: There were 10,000 or 15,000 people
on the grounds last night and the principal attraction and
entertainment was a band concert, and most of them
tried to get into an auditorium, probably large enough to
hold 1000 or 1200 people by violation of all rules of safety
in event of fire or accident. Naturally nine persons out
of ten were disappointed last nierht. when if the band had! any ten-cent piaster casts or Romeo,
played out of doors everybody might have heard it and! "gj SiJSL

nobody thought about it because there could have been;my snukespere-cozy-comer without
no reasonable objection to it. There are other evidences Itbose men!
that there should be an official thinker around the state
fair offices.
Regarding the Frank case, Georgia wants to be "let
alone." But when it comes to sharing in the thirty-million-dollar
cotton money which all the rest of us have to
contribute to well, that's different, remarks the Boise;

It will be hard for a good many to choose between the

Ever since the little' affair between Cain and Abel men
have debated whether or not man is his brother's keeper.
The question is properly debatable.
But there is no room for debate on this proposition that;
every man is his own keeper that he owes it to God and'
Nature, his country and his community, his family and
mmseir, lo Keep his ideals high and make his achivements
worthy of him.
No man can escape responsibility for wasted time.
Here and hereafter he will be held to account. Hours are
keen-edged tools with which he must work out his tem
poral no less than his eternal destiny.

, The gifted statesman makes a speech; we hear him
rumble, growl and screech for weary hours together;
we murmur, as the moments pass, "His lungs are surely
made of brass, his larynx is of leather." In
order to express a thought he springs five
miles of tommyrot, of words that have noM-mio Miudi of smiies-

He cannot see he's wearied out his audience

learn that brevity will always earn the

Fourteen Speeders
Arrested In First
Three Days of Fair
The Salem traffic officers have made
fourteen arrests for speeding during
the first three days of the fair and
most of them have appeared at the po
lice station to contribute the usual U)
for stepping upon their accelerator.
This morning Otto Klett's driver "was
called upon to answm- a charge of ex
ceeding the speed limit, C. J. Skeen, J
K. I'attee, 11. Oilhman, W. J. Savage
and a -Mr. Fitchard, of Independence,
were ou the books on similar charges.
Tuck O'Connor was arrested last
night by the officers of this city upon
a warrant from Portland charging
grand larceny. O'Connor said he hud
been soliciting for a Jitney bus in this
city during the fair but claimed he
did not know what the charge was for.
Portland officers will arrive here today
to look the man over and see if he is
the one wanted in Portland.
