The quick and general response to the call for men to
bring the National Guard of the states up to war footing,
condition of the men and consequently for the victories.
They are the chaps that put the boys in marching trim
with their bellies filled with well cooked grub, that makes
them stand the days hardships and brings them in at
the end of a long hike in good condition. While they are
not the vhole thing for the same reason the ancient
mariner was so many things, they can sing just as truth
fully as did he:
"Oh, I'm a cook and a Captain bold,
And the mate of the Nancy brig;
And a bo'sun tight,
And a midshipmite.
And the crew of the Captain's gig."

Today is credited with being the longest of the year,
though the difference between it and yesterday and what
it will be tomorrow is infinitessimal. Yesterday was so
cold the weather clerk got ashamed of himself for absent
mindedly tearing a leaf out of the November calendar
instead of that of June, and promised warmer weather
today. Yesterday the mercury dropped down to 4!) and
perhaps lower, and a good fire was a great aid to

foreign invasion. Here in Salem we saw me uuwu
gather at the armory offering to enlist, and every place
in the United States saw the same thing.
The average American does not care to belong to the
militia in time of peace. There are several reasons for
this. Perhaps the main one is the American idea ot
absolute freedom, each one wanting to do as he pleases
and when he pleases. To belong to the militia requires
the surrendering of time and the interference with the
doing of other things that bring the individual greater;
pleasure. The average American wants to do things ot
his own volition, and he is so constructed mentally that
if compelled to do the things he otherwise wanted to do
he would refuse, if possible, to do them.
He wants to go fishing or hunting, and militia duty at
times might interfere with this? It would at times in
terfere with his social affairs, his auto excursions or
things of that kind and he refuses to have his private
life hampered in this manner. When, however, it comes
to the real thing and his country needs him, there is but
one sentiment, and that is that the country is en titled to
his services and he freely gives all there is in him lot
the ciuo
There is no question as to the ability of the country

present system they would be untrained, of course, but ig nQ g,
the American learns quickly and as most o. them are ac-jandpol
customed to handling fire arms they can soon be madij
into first class soldiers.
At the same time laying the mi itary benefit of turn-,
ing aside, there is no better physical training than that;
if forded by military drill. This especially lor the yo ng. ;
It gives bearing and "set" to the body and a straighte ;
and b tter carriage. Its mental training is also good for
it teaches respect for others, and obedience to Kux ful,
commands. The present war ike movement 1 sti the
youngsters to emulate their elders and awaken a stiong-

them in a hurry. If the country is yak
be in its ability to arm and equip all who iU o Uei tnu i .
ser ces n tin e of need. Salem takes especial pride in
her ovs of Conipnny M. for they . were irst on he
ground and the strongest company in the state. No oi
weTe hey first, but when notified during the night tha j
they xuS needed, were at their armory and could have
been on the way to the front as soon as they had then
breakfast, or for that matter before it was read . j
The nock of utterly silly rumors that are given wing
by some one and that find credence, is simply
Yesterday for instance, one was that Geinian ha
ot'ieml the United States to withdraw her troops fr om
Mexico. Another that war had commenced and the ( i
gon militia, or at least Company M had not s ton d a
Clackamas, but was sent direct to Mexico. Still am thei
wi thal Carranza had marched into Toxas at the head
of a big army and a desperate battle was raging, hue
were dozens of them besides made of such gauzy mate na
that no one would apparently take notice ot them but
they were believed by some for the Capital Journal phone
was busy at times denying them.
Rio Vista. California, employes are trying the costly
plan of importing strike breakers, in an attempt to
smash the strike of the bay and river boatmen. It there
was as much danger of life in this plan, to the employers
as there is to both strikers and strike breakers, it would
seldom be used.
You say, "Great Scott! The day is hot! The solar
rays are pelting, on my old form, till I'm so warm that all
my lard is melting'" And when you meet, upon the
' street, some other panting duffers, each
has his say about the way he sizzles, sweats
and suffers. The more you think you're on
the blink, the more you will be fretting;
when ills abound and throng around,
there's nothing like forgetting. We fume
and curse, and pet and nurse our every
punk affliction, when, if we'd smile and
josh awhile, 'twould leave our jurisdiction.
When heat is hot, I say, "I wot, no kick of
mine will change it; the weather man pur
sues his plan, and roars will not derange
it. I did not weep when snows were deep, and in the
blast I shivered, and I'll not sulk because in bulk the heat
is now delivered. It does not help to howl and yelp, there
good in snorting: I'll think of floes and Eskimos,
ar bears cavorting.

turiril on tile loss of the sr on insh i p Bear
contained some food for tliounlit. In
deed, as you humorously intimate, the
causes of 'the loss will lie " evei vthinir "
but what ins really the cause. There
is one point in this latest disaster wh'u h ,
appears to have been entirely overlook
ed by the press, as I have not seen a
single mention made of it. and that is.
What of her ballast? She ha heen re- ;
fusiiifi freight on neeount of the strike
ami was she sent to sea with women
an, I children on board without suf
ficient ballast? Kithcr tho Bear or the
Heaver, a sister ship. was recently
blown about in the Willamette river'
and nearly collided with the Bread
way bridge and this when the strike
was on. if a boat will become nn
manageable in the river, what may hap
pen on a stormy sea? Tf she has not
been carrying any freight, perhaps she
stuck so kick oiit of the water that
the wind .just blew lier ashore at Cape
Mendocino. Investigation, if made in
! regard to her ballast, may give us the j
real cause, after all. Dispatches said
'she was carrying 1.001 tons of cement,
i between Portland and San Pedro on ae
: count of the strike, but as a matter of
fact, was she not us'iinr this as ballast?
Are l.non tons of cement- sufficient bal-,
; last for a boat that size J The fact that ;
tl row had made this trip many time!
and were familiar w ith the rocks at the j
cape w ould indicate that (key were help-i
less when the skip got away from tliem.
rtoiv could slie get away unless ske was
skimming the surface of the sea at the'
mercy of the wind? The location ofj
the wreck points to something morej
than bad seamanship. The Peter iv j
dale lies on Seaside beach from want
of ballast. It is nothing new to loss of ;
shins. What do von think about it f I
