HAS THE MYSTERY BEEN SOLVED?
Jolly Topsy, a Holstein cow, has a right to feel just
as her name suggests. First because her home is Cleve
land, Ohio; and second, because she broke the world's
record recently as a milk producer. In the 11 months
ending April 15. She yielded 26,748 pounds of milk, beat
ing the record by three pounds. This is an average of a
little more than 81 pounds a day. Almost a ton and a
quarter a month. Tcpsy is surely a jolly good cow.
The clean-up in Mexico should be thorough this time
ana it snouift include Larranza, insolent and arrogant,
and all his dirty bunch of grafting followers. Mexico will
have good government and prosperity only after the
United States has cleaned it up and established a pro
tectorate similar to that exercised over Cuba if it is not
deemed advisable at this time to annex a considerable
portion of northern part of the country.
Portland has organized a M. E. 0. W. club, its mem
bers being owners of thoroughbred cats. The society
will have "a bench show" or whatever it is where cats

killed so many times that his death will not be believed
until his body is produced and identified by Americans
A Mexican identification will not be sufficient.
The combination of circumstances is too suspicious.
First: Carranza requests the United States to withdraw
its troops from Mexico
it will do so only when Villa is dead or captured. Third
the Mexican government reports, Villa is dead.
The concatenation of events is too smooth, the se
quence too natural to sound exactly straight. Then too,
ihe digging up of the body after burial two weeks is not
calculated to make its identification easy, and it follows
that the palming off of any dead Mexican is a possibility.
On top of all this is the fact that Carranza has no
friendly feeling toward this country and no hesitation
about accomplishing his ends by any and all kinds of pre
varication. Looked at from this viewpoint it does not
seem probable that the big bandit is dead.
On the other hand the rumors of Villa being woundeu
though denied have been persistent and would not down.
This makes it seem probable he was wounded as stated.
If hn was so wounded it is easily believed that with such
surgical aid as was at his command, he passed in his
checks and quit banditting.
. The truth will be known soon, or else there will be a
show down that is far from satisfactory to everyone this
side of the Mexican border. If he is dead the Mexican
situation no longer exists, and the recall of the army will
naturally fallow. It is hoped this will prove to be the
solution of the miystery, that our troubles along the
border and with Mexico have ended, and that peace is in
sight for our bandit-infested neighbor.

The commission form of government is not giving en
tire satisfaction in Portland judging' from the Oregonian
which recently remarked anent the proposition of Com
missioner Daly to establish a municipal lighting plant. It
says there is no use submitting the matter to a vote, be
cause the commissioners would pay no attention to what
the taxpayers said anyway. It suggests that the commis
sion has not the ability to manage a dog pound and has
farmed that job out. It also alludes to the city's wood
venture and its loss of a pile of cord wood a mile and a
half long, and suggests that if the lighting plant was se
cured that someone might walk oft with the power house,
Evidently the big daily is not optimistic over city com
mission government as exemplified in the Oregon
With but a few hours left in which voters can register
it is safe to say the registration is far below what it
should be. However when you read this don't rush over
to the clerk's office, but just let the bets go as they lay.
If you have neglected to register so far, the chances are
you would also forget to vote anyway, so what's the

An amusing feature of the political situation is the
Oregonian trying to make itself believe that the Ethio
pian has changed his skin, the leopard his spots and
Colonel Roosevelt his disposition, and qualifications for
the of lice of president, since four years ago. It calls to
mind a story of a tramp who asked for something to eat
and when the lady of the house brought him a small niece
of rather aged pie he tackled it manfully but half-heart-
edly, Fletcherizing steadily and laboriously on Mt.iyjJ
"What's the matter with the pie, isn't it good? Or is!
there not enough of it?" inquired the lady. "Madame,"
replied the gallant hungry one, "it is good enough what
there is of it, and," hesitatingly, "there is enough of it
such as it is."
FARMERS AND THE (JLUB
(Oregon City Enterprise.)
The Salem Commercial club is consid
ering a plan whereby the farmers will
be invited to join the organization. It
is proposed to make the farmers mem
bers of the agricultural department of
the club and jrtve them voting power in
that department, but not in the general
commercial club organization. The
farmers would also be given the social
privileges of the club anil the dues re
ceived would be used to promote work
in the agricultural depart imnnt.
The plan js one worthy of careful
consider itiou from similar organiza
tions throughout the state. The com
mercial club of the capital city has seen
the necessity of the -town uniting with
the farmers, hns been converted to the
gospel of co-opeiation anil organized ef
fort and now is debating taking in all
the surrounding country into the scope
of the club's membership and work.
There is onlv one flaw in the Salem
Commercial club's scheme of things.
The club proposes to interest farmers in
its work anil, incidenly, to collect fees
therefor, yet the club will not give
them the full privileges of the club. The
farmer cannot take part in the general
activity of the club, cannot vote at
the general commercial club elections.
His place in the Salem Commercial club
scheme is in one lone department. I
The Salem Commercial club will find
upon investigation th.it the farmers of
Oregon are worthy of confidence, that;
