It is to be hoped that the courts will not interfere in
'the attempt of the mayor and city council to emancipate
the property owners ot saiem irom tne exioruonuie ue
mands of the paving trust. A city-owned paving plant,'
operated by home labor, and laying pavement lor prop
erty owners at virtual cost is a business-like and sensible
idea in all respects. The depression in many of the
Northwest cities and towns may in a measure be traced
to the vast expenditures for public improvements, loading
fj-in miinipill.'ilifipsj with bonded debts and inrceasintr tax-
ation to the point of confiscation in some instances. And
the greatest beneficiary of this era of extravagance has
been the several paving concerns operating in this terri
tory, and apparently combined into one big paving trust
so far as the stifling of actual competition is concerned.!
This combine has left a trail of debauched and bribed
city officials, newspapers and property owners that makes
the map of the Northwest look like a checkerboard, and
as a result property owners have been forced to pay in
many instances double the price they should have paid
for an inferior brand of hard surface streets. The rule
of the paving trust in Oregon, Washington and Idaho
during the past eight or nine years has been one of abso
lute disregard for the rights and interests of the prop
erty owner and taxpayer and that rule has been so
despotic that the people are in no mood to submit longer
to its oppressions.
Salem is in need of considerable more street improve
ment work and the property owners will consent to it
when they are assured of a reasonable price for pave
ment, and not before. The municipal plant idea was a
sensible plan to eliminate the trust and its extortions
and of course there comes the inevitable court injunction.
That is the corporation and trust plan always for defeat
ing the just efforts of the people to govern themselves.
The Oregonian takes the president to task for appoint
ing George Rublee as a member of the Federal Trade
Commission, and insists that this was in violation of the
spirit of the law, because its intent was that where a
minority party was entitled to representation on a com
mission'he principal minority party was meant. While it
is probable the republican party is the principal minority
party, it is not so shown by the national returns. The
progressives polled a larger vote than the republicans at
the last national election, and this is the last official test

bull moose is the principal, even though minority animal.
A defeated candidate was met by a Capital Journal
man the morning after, and he was smiling and cheery as
though he had not been through the mill and came out
ground pretty fine. When questioned about his views on
the matter, he replied in effect, that this was a demo
cratic country, that every other man and woman too, in
Orecon, had as much right to judge as to his being the
right man for the place as he had and they having decided
against him he had no fault to find. That was the cheer
ful and correct way to look at it, and is of the brand of
philosophy used by the Irishman who gave as a recipe for
contentedness the' simple formula: "If you don't get
what you like, like what you get."
It may be possible of course that the Portland detec
tives have the murderer of Mrs. Jennings in Bennett
Thompson, but so far there is but little evidence to sup
port their conclusions. It would seem they are trying to
make the murder fit their theories rather than discover
the criminal. Unless they have the right man now, and
starting on the theory that he is the only one that could
have committed the murder, they are not apt to find him.
They had a theory about the trunk murder not long ago,
but so far, that is all they have discovered.
Food prices in Germany are reaching a new high level,
and it is expected a food dictator will be appointed soon.
It is claimed there is enough, but defective distribution is
responsible for shortage and high prices.
In two weeks the animals will gather at Chicago. The
Elephants, the Bull Moose and the National Women's
party which should also be given a place in the menagerie.
So far no name has been suggested and the Capital
Journal feeling the political baby is entitled to a cognomen
entirely and distinctly its own, suggests "The Giraffes."
There are several reasons for this. The Giraffe is neat
but not gaudy in its garb, and showing a distinctly fem
inine trait in selecting the polka dot style of garment. It
is graceful and attractive, and carries its head high,
looking down upon all the other animals just as does
well, the lady politician. The zebra might do, being some
what gay of attire but it looks too much like the demo
cratic donkey in carnival garb.
As another suggestion, the animals being already pret
ty well represented, why not give the birds a chance?
Most women are more bird-like anyway, than the balance
of humanity, and besides they are many of them capable
of high flights, and are sweet voiced songsters. The
ostrich, being the largest of the bird tribe naturally sug
gests itself, and as one qualification sports a handsome
selection of feathers. True it is not much of a songster
and certainly not a high flier, but it is some runner.
This suggestion was made to an old friend who says
the idea is all right, but we have selected the wrong
animal. He insists the goat should be selected as the
emblem of the women's party from its persistent habit of
butting in.
This was not nice of him, but it's like naming any other
baby and the whole country has a right to suggest a
name. If you have any it is your privilege to make it pub
lic, for the party is to be born in two weeks, and as its tho
sex is known, a name should be awaiting it.

There are vast numbers of men and
women who. immediately upon arising
in the morning, drink a class of real
hot water with a tenspoutiful of lime
stone phosphate in it. This is a very
excellent health measure. It is in

People who feel good one day and

to make anyone a real crank on the

An advertisement in the Oregonian says that "Wash
inoton often played the lotteries." That statement may
get through in Oregon, but over in the state named after
him, if Attorney Joab heard of it, the writer would be sent
to jail and the editor of the Oregonian would be sent to
the rock pile or something equally drastic be done to him
in the way of punishment.
The Southern Pacific officials are puzzled. At Rose
ville a force of 100 section men were given a raise of 25
cents a day a few days ago, and the next morning every
last one of them quit the job. They gave no reason, just
walked out and said nothing. . That is what is keeping the
officials busy trying to find a solution. So far none has
even been suggested.
