WOULD BE THE WHOLE THING
The Woman's party convention being new at the
"Wanvicking" business started early, and began the first
session at Chicago yesterday morning. They have noti
fied the old parties as well as the progressives that they
are ready to receive bids for their support. The best look
ing man with the most dressy get up is liable to get away
with the indorsement. The amusing feature of their pro
gram is the attempt to hold the balance of power. Given
enfranchisement in many states they propose to have a
party of their own which while having no politics except
votes for women, they expect to be really the whole thing.
They do not seem to understand that from the very
nature of things they cannot do this. It would put the
politics of the country entirely in the hands of the women
if the scheme could be carried out, for holding the balance
of power they could make the nation republican, demo
cratic or progressive, and be in fact the political boss.
Every party would have to find out what the ladies
wanted, and promise to grant it before they had a show
for the political plums. Under these conditions, the coun
try would change its tariff, and revenue laws as often as
the ladies do their style in dress or hats. It would be in
fact a big club in the hands of the women to force the
politicians to do their bidding. It would be in this case a
be-ribboned and be-flounced club, but none the less deadly.
Oregon has given the ballot to its women, and finds
no reason to regret it, but they should not overlook the
fact that they are citizens and voters just like the male
A solid woman's party, if it could be perfected and
held together, would ultimately result in a solid men's
party, or else it would reverse the old order of things and
placing the women in power would in effect disfranchise
THE COLOSSUS OF OYSTER BAY
The forty eight states of the Union have sent dele
gates to the national republican convention at Chicago,
for the purpose of naming a standard bearer for the party
in the coming presidential election. Those delegates are
perfectly willing to do the work they were sent to do, but
find that one man will not let them. That is a strange con
dition for a great party in a free country. It reminds one
of the complaint of the old Roman, which one, just now
we cannot say, probably Cassius but Shakespeare puts in
his mouth these words:
"Now in the name of all the gods at once, upon what
meat hath this our Caesar fed that he hath grown so
great, that like a huge Colossus he doth bestride this nar
row world, and we petty men must peep about and creep
beneath his huge legs to find ourselves dishonorable.

THE PECULIAR INNES CASE
The case of the .Innes, of Eugene, recently tried in
Georgia for the murder of the Nelms sisters, Mrs. Eloise
Nelms Dennis and Beatrice Nelms, for which they were
acquitted, is a peculiar one. In that case the acquittal was
due to the fact that there was no proof the sisters
were dead. It lacked the corpus delicti. On top of this
the couple, Victor Innes and his wife, Ida May Innes, were
indicted for larceny in stealing money from Mrs. Dennis.
Innes admitted receiving money from Mrs. Dennis but
claimed-it was given to him by the woman because she was
in love with him, and consequently there was neither
larceny or fraud of any kind about the transaction. The
Nelms sisters in the meanwhile are reported to be alive
and it is claimed not long ago were living near Seattle,
and at present are in Alaska. This however, has not been
proven but it seems the rumor cut no ice with the Georgia
jury, for Saturday he was found guilty and sentenced to
seven years in prison, the maximum sentence. The
peculiarity of this case is that the party from whom he is
alleged to' have stolen the money was not present and had
nothing to do with the arrest or iruu 01 nines, wtb.
Innes has not yet been tried and when receiving sentence
Innes asked the court to deal leniently with her as she is
suffering from tuberculosis and imprisonment would
mean her death. ,
Under the Georgia law, being man and wife they could
not be tried jointly.
The British statement that IS German warships were
destroyed in the great North sea battle is denied by the
Germans, who ask the British to name the vessels, and
smilingly say they cannot. At the same time they say the
story was told by the English for home consumption, in
order to let the people get familiar with tho Gorman
victory by degrees.
Thirty-three women delegates will have seats in the
National Progressive convention, a dozen of them being
from the state of Washington. Women are surely taking
their place in the political world, and if the womens
party has its way, they will before long take the men's
The council might as well wipe all ordinances pertain
ing to automobiles off the books for they are neither ob
served or enforced. The habit some autoists have of
passing street cars while they are at a crossing, is sooner
or later going to result in a serious accident. At the risk
of becoming tiresome, attention is again called to the fact
that a person who accidentally causes death while doing
something unlawful is liable formanslaughter. Under
the law a person who by pure accident causes another's
death while exceeding the speed limits in his auto, or
while doing any other act forbidden by the statutes or
ordinances, takes the chance of spending a few years in
the penitentiary. It is not probable this fact would deter
speed maniacs, since the risk of their lives will not do it.
Henry Ford's name may not be formally presented to J
the convention as he has so far failed to ask any one to
speak for him. He will however get Michigan's :'0Totesj
on the initial ballot even though not formally presented.
Henry is a good gentlemanly "also ran."
Lord Kitchener's death will prove the heaviest loss
England has yet sustained. In spite of the criticism
leveled against him he was no doubt the empire's most
experienced soldier, and an executive of great ability in
the direction of military matters.

"O, what is so smooth as a day in June? Then, if ever,
are flossy days!" So the Poet sang, with his lyre in tune,
and the subject deserved his praise. For a day in June
is the slickest thing that ever the gods de
signed, and the man who doesn't then smile
and sing has barnacles on his mind. Then
the coltkins play and the calf kins romp, and :
gamboling are the lambs, and the bullfrogs i

pickled clams. Then the grass is green andj

docs not change the original Hughes j
bill ns to the administration of the law.;
The law say that " the secretary of '
the interior, in cooperation with the
secretary tf agriculture, or otherwise,
i authorized and directed," etc.
In the opinion of Representative Sin
nott, who has given much time to the
legislation, the secretary of interior
is alone empowered to administer the
law should he so desire. It is expected
however, that the interior department
will utilize the services of the forestry
department, particularly in the valu
ation of timber.
Special agents of the general land
office and the geological survey, both
under the interior department, will be
used to classify the lands.

People who are confined within doors

caution to guard against over-stoutness,
as fat acquired by indoor life is
unhealthy and a danger to the vital

that it is unable to produce strong mus
