CAPITAL JOURNAL MOST RELIABLE
The excellence of the Capital Journal's news service
was demonstrated again by its handling of the election
returns. The United Press' leafed wire report was al
f its flntinuated rival and its news Droved
far more reliable in all respects. The crowds thronging!
..... 1 1
the bulletin boards eager lor election news soon learneu
that the Capital Journal was the only dependable source
of such news in town because its reports were always
grudgingly confirmed by rival newspapers in due course
of time. . ' .
It is probable that no great news gathering organiza
tion was ever before so completely equipped to gather
and tabulate election returns as was the United Press on
this occasion, and the Capital Journal had its full leased
wire service without a break both day and night.
. More than this' the Capital Journal never allows
partisanship to color i,ts."news reports in any respects and
accordingly everything that came over the wire was given
to the public for what it was worth. Other papers may
have doctored their reports to suit their political pre
judicesbut the Capital Journal never has descended to
anything of this kind and never will. The news is al
ways given as it is, and its political opinions are con
fined exclusively to its editorial page.
TVu f!snihil Journal's election bulletin and minted
news were recognized as best of all because they werei
absolutely straight, and were aneaa 01 any competitor in
reaching the public. Many appreciated compliments upon
our election service have been received.
; THE WEST IS IN THE SADDLE
. If a few days ago Samuel G.'Blythe, who is one of the
keenest political observers of the present day, said in an
article in the Saturday Evening Post: "A president could
be elected without New York, but he wouldn't be." It
would awear that Mr. Blythe for once was mistaken. As
Svild and improbable as it seems after so long accepting
it as tne law mat without New York no party could win,
this is what has.happened. To paraphrase Byron: "The
brokers of Wall Street are loud in their wail, and the
idols are broke in the temple of Baal."
New York with the utmost self complacency had ac
cepted herself at the valuation the balance of the coun
try had placed on her and considered herself indispensible
to success of any party. For this reason when the result
in New York was known, congratulations began to pour
in upon Mr. Hughes, and he, as well as most of the
politicians considered his election a thing assured. They
had not realized that the West had come of age, was
a legal voter, and was to be reckoned as a big factor.
East of the Mississippi river and north of the Ohio there
was but one state that did not stay in the republican
ranks, and that was Ohio with its 24 electoral votes, and
possibly New Hampshire with its four. West of the
Mississippi there are 22 states with a total of 175 elec
toral votes. Of these, three are strictly of what is known
as the solid south, while Oklahoma may be classed with
them. These have a total of G7 electoral votes. Outside
of these there are IS states with a total of 108 votes and
of these but three are certainly republican, the balance
with the possible exception of Minnesota and New Mexico
were all in direct opposition to the east in their ideas as
to the man who should be president. The three have 2:1
electoral votes. Of these only Oregon and Iowa gave
enough majority to classify them as being with the East
in their political beliefs, for the others are so close as
to make them a draw. Without these two strongly
republican states with their 2:1 votes, there are 83 elec
toral votes against the East. Adding Oklahoma there
are 95 votes west of the Mississippi not counting the
southern states in that section that are so arrayed. These
are the votes that made possible the victory in spite of
New York and the pivotal states, so called, of Indiana and
Illinois which combined have a total of 89 votes in the
electoral college. '
It woiild seem from this that New York's teeth have
been pulled and the pivots of the great "pivoters" broken.
The West has come into its own politically, and has given
notice that hereafter it must be reckoned with. It is no

longer a suppliant at the back door for a hand out after
the balance of the states have been 'to dinner, but will
demand and get a seat at the table and be helped with the
balance. It is a source of much gratification to the
democrats that President Wilson has been re-elected
without the aid of New York and especially without that
of. Tammany, which for some reason bast known to it,
turned its party down. It is notice to the world that
Wall street is not America " and that the most of the
United States lies outside of the state of New York. It
is a notice to other nations that, the frenzied money
grabbers of Wall street do not represent the spirit and
beliefs of the United States.
The real America lies west of the Mississippi, the
land of broad prairies and towering mountains and fer
tile valleys--and land peopled by real Americans. No mat
ter what land across the ocean their people or their fore
fathers may have come thehave breathed the free air
of plain and mountain and are Americans, proud of their
country and wedded to its institutions. The hyphenated
citizens are a hopeksminority they thrive only in the
crowded cities of the East which is the dumping place
for constantly' arriving streams of heterogeneous immi
gration from every part of the globe. These people never
move into the West the real America until they have
gradually imbibed some of the spirit of American life
and freedom and once, in the West they are rapidly trans
formed into Americans. The"1 native born American
of the East is narrow, provincial, untravelled he votes
his prejudices and is ruled by convictions based on a nar
row, biased judgment.
The Westerners liked President Wilson because he is a
typical American president and they voted for him with
a unnanimity without parallel in the history of the
Apparently the belligerents over in Europe have taken
a few days off to watch the bill-boards concerning the
American election, for there has been little or no fighting
since Tuesday morning. Perhaps now that it is all over
we can again get interested in what is going on at some
of the many fronts, and go to deciphering the construc
tion of the names of some of the towns with the hope of
sometime discovering the correct answer.
With 175 electoral votes, what is the matter with the
West having a place on the national ticket in 1920? Most
of the western states are small in the way of electoral
votes, but they have a way of standing together, and 175
is sure some votes when the total is only 5:11, for it is
practically one-third of the whole, and it is four times as
much as New York can show.
The stock market was strong in Wall street today, and
wheat went up four cents a bushel in Chicago. The
presidential election this year failed to- disturb the
business or financial system of the country, a fact due
mainly to the solid basis upon which the administration
of President Wilson had placed it.
As the Capital Journal predicted Tuesday the Ele
phant that usually disports his rotund form' in the Ore
gonian cartoons had a rather woebegone look after the
election news of the day had been received at his camp.
The returns Thursday, evidently had a fatal result, for
the old packyderm has disappeared. . ,
The returns from California evidently did not reach
the college at St. Ignatius, Cleveland, Ohio; -until this
morning. The seismograph there recorded an earth
quake somewhere in North America. ,
Wall street brokers gambled on the election placing its
bets at two to one on Hughes. Since it has heard from
Vox Populi, it has discovered it had its ear fo the street
rather than to the ground. i -:

It was a rather strange figure that little "1.1" proved
to be in the campaign. Candidate Hughes drew and
voted ballot numbered "13" and President Wilson got the
needed "13" votes from California. .

sighing as you labor, I greatly fear you'll
never bask in Easy street, my neighbor.

RECEIVES VEESWELL HOPS
C. L. Fitrhard, a prominent figure in
tne hop-buying world, was in the city
yesterdny fronr Independence. While
here he made a trip to CresweU and re
ceived 353 bales of the R. O. Brady
crop of hops which he contracted for
early in the season at from 10 cents
for the poorer quality to 12 1-2 cents
for the very best, but the average price
will be about 11 1-2 cents, he said.
Mr. Fitchard said that there is very
little movement in the hop market and
the price is correspondingly low. The
growers, he said, are becoming discour
aged at the continued low price aud he
looks for a decrease in the aereago next
year. Eugene Begister.
