THE SOUTH AND THE NEGRO
has a profound esperance concerning the patriotism of
the American manufacturer. A Canadian munition
maker recently returned to the government $720,000,
profits he had made on government contracts. In doing
so he said: "It is merely an effort to do. my bit. I don't
see any reason why a man shouldn't make cartridges for
ms country at cost wnen so many oi his tellow citizens
are giving up their lives for it." The manufacturer was
eminently correct, and this is where the Oregonian shows; why i -,t ti
its childlike faith. It says it believes many American f1i,,;T.,t!?,he'1

the attempt was made nas caused consiuerauie uiscussiun
of the negro being deprived, more or less, of his right to
vote in many of the southern states. Like all other
questions, it has two sides. It was unfortunate that the
negro was enfranchised when he was. Unfortunate both
tn the whites and to the negroes. Some millions of them
their freedom, and at the same time made
citizens and given the right' to vote. They knew nothing
of government, most of them could not read, lhey had
no idea of the country, of the rights of property, so
railed, in fact so far as knowledge of politics, or the mean
ing of government was concerned, they were as ignorant
as children. Is it any wonder tnat uueu irom slavery to
citizenship, and under the reconstruction policies and
carpet-bag rule given office and power, that they became
arrogant, swelled up with importance? Surely not.
The result was that in some states the negro legisla
tures rulad, made the laws and fastened burdens of debt
on the states that were heavy to bear. They owned no
property, paid no taxes, and cared not what happened to
their old masters. Backed by white officers from the
north who were generally not of the better class of
politicians, for nearly all were appointed as reward for
petty service, all they were capable of rendering, they
ruled with a high hand and the white land owners saw
ruin staring them in the face unless conditions could be
It was these conditions that brought the Ku-Klux Klan
into existence. Had the negro been given his freedom,
and then been denied citizenship until he was prepared for
it, it would have been far better lor him as well as tne
whites. Pennle of the north criticise the southern
methods, and point with horror to the fact that the negro
is deprived in many cases of his "political rights." We
are not defending the system neither are we condemning
it, for it is not our foot that it pinches. While condemn
ing the whites of the south for refusing to permit the
non-taxpaying element, the negro, to vote, the critics
overlook the fact that here in Oregon as well as in most
of the northern states, we do the same thing to the poor
white voter. The man who pays no taxes unless he has
children of school age cannot vote at an election where
bonds are submitted. Whv? For the same reason the
south deprives the negro of his right to vote at general
elections, the protection of the taxpayer. In the case of
the school elections it is to prevent those who do not help
pay the' bills from voting a debt onto those who do
In the south the same means of protection, are used on a
much wider scale. The principle behind each is the same.
To deprive any citizen of his right to vote is admittedly
wrong. Yet to permit the free voting of the negro in the
south would mean negro officials, legislatures, negro
domination and financial ruin. It is the unsolved and ap
parently unsolvable problem this country faces, and one
that grows larger and more important every year.
It is the hope of all that the trouble between the rail
roads and their men can be settled without a strike.
Mutual concessions and a consideration of the rights of
the public should make either side hesitate long before
bringing such disaster on the country. The situation
following a general strike of the four brotherhoods is too
appalling to even contemplate. If it comes it will start
the movement for government ownership, and under this
it is doubtful if wages would be any higher, or even as
high as under present conditions. Another feature about
it is that it will tend to bring unionism into disrepute and
the unions will lose that sympathy of the public which is
now with them. It will paralyze industries, bring ruin to
many, and even should the strikers win, will cost much
more than all the benefits would amount to during the
lifetime of the strikers. The country can't afford it and
neither can any of the parties to the dispute.
It is possible the republican candidate for the presi
dency, Mr. Hughes, will visit Salem and deliver a speech
here. It is hoped he may do this for every American
citizen would like to hear what so distinguished a nerson
, has to say, even though they disagree with him in political
Deneis. Mr. tiugnes has the reputation of being a splen
did campaigner. During his visit to Oregon it would be
the proper thing for him to explain that Oree-on. Cali

him pressing forward, driving the wedge still further in

' Cold Beach Reporter: One -of the
fishermen caught a c hi nook salmon
his net yesterday that had been eauaht
before bv an angling fisherman. It
had a large hook securely fastened in
the side of it jaw, and a long piece
of heavy line was attached, showing
that the fish had broken the line after
being hooked. As there were no signs
of n spoon, nnd it was not a spoon
hoak, it would appear that the fish had
taken a bait, which many people say
a chinook will not do. The head of
the fish, with hook aud line attached
was cut off and put in brine, ami Fish
