GETTING ACQUAINTED WITH AMERICA
VOTE ON EQUAL SUFFRAGE TODAY
The result of the elections in New York, Massa
chusetts and Pennsylvania held today are being watched
with the kenest interest by all those who favor equal
suffrage. If all the states should adopt it, it will mean
the enfranchising of six million women, by today's vote.
Those in touch with the situation however are of the
opinion that equal suffrage will fail in all of them, and
that this result is certain in Pennsylvania.
It is unfortunate for the advocates of suffrage that
the elections happen just at this time when the "I didn't
raise my boy to be a soldier" sentiment is being so ex
tensively discussed. No doubt there are many men who
under average conditions would vote for suffrage, that
will not vote for it now. They believe, and probably are
right in that belief, that the majority of women are
against militarism in any form, and that to enfranchise
them now would make the effort now being made for
"preparedness" that much harder to accomplish. That
this will cause many to vote against it is undoubtedly

far reaching, and that is by cutting off tourists from

with. The department of the interior has just rftade public
some statistics about the visitors to our national parks,
which show the number this year is more than double
that of those visiting the same parks last year.
This year 51,820 visited Yellowstone Park, and there
and then learned that the United States contained the
greatest wonder and beauty spot, unequaled anywhere in
Europe, or for that matte?, the world. The number last
year was 20,250.
Yosemite, which for majestic grandeur, stands with
out a peer, and which following the opening of the first
Pacific railroad was visited by hundreds of Europeans,!
which was literally raved about in the magazines and art
journals of the old world, somehow did not appeal to
Americans, who crossed the Atlantic to see. the Alps,
largely because they had to go abroad to see them
neglecting the far grander sceneiy of their own land, was
visited last year by 15,1:?1 and this year by 31,642.

, The Panama Exposition had much to do with this too;
perhaps was as great a factor as the war itself, for it sent
many a tourist through the northwest, who otherwise
would not have made the trip. While there are no statis

chasm where the resistless Columbia, fifth river in the
world, has cut the great mountain chain in two and poured
its majestic azure flood through to the Pacific, the num

The results should be pretty well known tomorrow and
the Capital Journal hopes to tell its readers, that all three
of these big Eastern States have followed the pace set by
our own good old Oregon.
One of the Vanderbilts having sworn allegiance to
England, can now have the privilege of turning over about
one-third of his income to the government of his adoption,
in the shape of income tax. It is hoped he may prove a
real patriot, and remember that while naturally he should
have a kindly feeling for the country that permitted his
grand dad, the old financial pirate, to accumulate several
millions and lay the foundation for the present Vander
bilt fortune, that he owes full allegiance to the land of his
There is considerable complaint made as to the little
tent colony on the old mill site in North Salem. The com
paint is not against those occupying the tents, but as to
conditions which are said to be decidedly unsanitary. It
may be possible that conditions are responsible for the
tent colony. As to that we do not know,, but it is sug
gested that the city should take some steps toward im
proving sanitary conditions there, even should it require
the renting of a few houses.

A SENSIBLE CRITICISM.

Editor Capital Journal: I wish to
call attention to one phase of the
bridge problem that is being overlooked
and that is relating to the pedestrian
travel that passes over it.
Those in authority are allowing ped
estrians with lllish enrt.n. wheel. 1 hi rrnivu
and other hnnd eoiiveyaiices, to pss ov
er it; yet a needless obstruction to such
traffic is erected at each end of the
bridge. Why such absurd proceedure
If the bri lge is dangerous for such
traffic, it should be closed to such
travel, and if it is not, provision should
be made for the unobstructed passage
It. is certainly inconvenient enough
to freight across the brdige with a
push cart, but to be required to twice
unload, lift the cart and load over need
less obstructions, ami then reload, is
certainly very inconsiderate treatment
toward those tiwt find it necessary to
so use the bridge.
