THOSE DEPENDABLE HELLO GIRLS

as the favorite lor president, uonsiuenng me laci mai
Olcott was slated for retirement by a certain element of
the party, the result is something to make him justly
The Oregonian paragraphs a short time ago spoke
of Mr. Moores as a life long old line republican and said
"that is enough." It did not prove so. Mr. Moores is a
clever gentleman, with a clean record, so his opponent
said in his election pamphlet and that "Mr. Moores would
no doubt make a good and efficient secretary." Despite
this indorsement by his opponent, the voters refused to
indorse machine methods, and smashed the slate.
The voters of Oregon, more than those of any other
state are believers in fair play, and are less bound to
party than any others. This is shown by the election of
governors and senators of democratic faith, although the
state is strongly republican. Their example will be fol
lowed more and more as time passes, by the other states,
and Americans will come to look on political parties not
as something to bow down to and worship, but for what
they really are, a medium through which the voters can
express their political belief.
Instead of priding ones self on being a life-long mem
ber of any party, the true American of the future will be
long to no party but vote for the things the parties stand
for at that time. All parties make mistakes and get off
wrong sometimes, and when this happens the voter, if
sensible, no matter what his party, will vote against it.
The Daily Capital Journal printed and circulated 4, 175
copies of Saturday evening's edition a fact that shows
that at least one Salem paper is beginning to reach some
thing like a semi-metropolitan circulation. Undoubtedly
the Capital Journal leads any other paper in Oregon, out
side of the city of Portland, in circulation, with the Eu
gene papers following close in second place. Salem, as
the second city in the state and the capital, should have
bigger and better papers in all respects than it has had
in the past and the Capital Journal during the past two
years has been trying to fill the field as far as patronage
would justify. The great increase in its circulation seems
to have resulted from the appreciation of this fact by
Oregon has again shown the balance of the country a
new wrinkle in polities, one only of a great many, but one
that has considerable bearing on the balance of the coun
try. That was the placing of Justice Hughes' name on
the ballot over his written objection. In order to do this
it was necessary to invoke the action of the supreme court
as Secretary Olcott held that without some such order he
would follow the wishes of the candidate, rather than of
his admirers. The supreme court held that the citizens of
a state had a right to select any man for any office,
whether the man selected wanted it or not, and so Mr.
Hughes' name was placed on the ballot and he was given
a vote nearly double that of both his competitors.
The great outstanding feature of the election in Mult
nomah county is the success that attended the A. P. A.
contingent, party or what ever it may call itself, and the
fact that religion was made a party issue. On the repub
lican ticket were indorsed by the A. P. A.s and of these
28 were elected, a fact that shows how straight they voted.
Of the five senators nominated four were indorsed,by this
faction. In fact the only person they started out to "get"
and failed on, was Judge Kavanaugh. Some of the can
didates backed by them were politically unknown, but
they came through with flying colors. The election was
full of surprises, and all due to the A. P. A. element.
"Every dog has his day." Baseball put the European
war news on the inside pages of the big dalies, but Satur
day even baseball had to take a back seat while the elec

The Capital Journal takes off its hat to the 'young
ladies who at the telephone office Friday night had the
plugging of the Capital Journal's office phones 81 and 82,
for they certainly were kept busy. About ten minutes
before the polls closed the inquiries began to come in, the
first one being: "How is Mr. Olcott running?" It was a
soft and gentle little voice, and the man who heard it
wanted to give some information, but unlike the Journal's
contemporary, he could not hand out facts before they
happened, and so had to leave her unenlightened. From
that time until midnight it was a continuous stream of
inquiries, most of them being as to the race for secretary
of state. The race for district attorney came next, and
after that the fight for constable was a good third. Few
inquiries were made as to the presidential vote. Saturday
morning it was still more busy for the telephone girls and
the Journal force. Everybody apparently wanted to
know about some one or two offices. One gentleman got
real angry because he was asked when he inquired about
the election, as to what offices he wanted to know about.
"Oh just read the ticket to me," he replied, and when told
it was "very long" he said something about not reading
any of it. That was real unkind of him for the Journal
man wanted to accommodate him, and was denied the
pleasure. Thank you, Hello girls.
The Hay-Chamberlain army bill passed the house Sat
urday and is now up to the president. It provides for a
standing army of 175,000 men which congress has the
power to decrease. It also carries pay for the national
guard and provides for citizen training camps. The
strength of the militia is raised to 428,000. Considering
the size of the country this is not a large force, but too
large to place in the hands of a firebrand president.
Sandwiched between the returns and apparently of no
political importance is the statement that William Grant
Webster of Illinois received the vote of this state for the
vice presidential nomination. The Capital Journal does
not want to slight anyone and as it gave the returns for
constable desires to call attention to the fact that a vice
president was also selected to make the race with or with
out, Justice Hughes.
The next thing on the program is Memorial day, and
then the Cherry Fair. After that it is the seaside or the
mountains, and then the open season for hunters begins;
also for deer. Then school begins and the general election
follows, and when this is over and the soreness is worn off
comes Christmas, and almost before we know it we will
be holding another primary election.
The Oregon election will not prove interesting reading
for Colonel Roosevelt, but it will not interfere with his
strenuosity or make him hesitate in the fight for the nom
ination. The Colonel prides himself on being a fighter,
and he surely has some fight ahead -of him, enough at
least to satisfy any reasonable politician.
The rotund form and far-carrying voice of Senator
Gus. Moser will be again present in the legislature next
winter, he having been nominated on the republican ticket
in Multnomah county where that means election. Senator
S. B. Huston will also be back in his old seat.
The injecting of religious beliefs into politics is always
regrettable, and that the recent action in that line in this
tate, especially in Portland will cause bitterness and
bickering for years to come is a certainty. However, it
has been done and can't be undone.
Among the other disorderly things done by the repub
licans in Portland Friday was the running of "A. Muck."
He was not only run but elected by a handsome majority.
It is devoutly to be hoped that he is not also a "raker."
