The so-called "bone drv" amendment tn the mnsrifn.
tion has passed and will become the law as soon as the
governor issues his proclamation concerning ' the same.
As there was no penalty provided for a violation of the

would repeal the present law, it raises an interesting
question, onoum tne governor issue his proclamation

PATRIOTISM AND THE ELECTIONS
The election just passed was fought with great display
of patriotism on each side. There was a plethora of noise
about the honor of the nation, the protection of Amer
icans in Mexico, the right of Americans to travel any

actions following the Bull Moose convention, precluded
his ever blushing at anything.
The republican press took the flag under its wings
and asserted that without the elephant toting it the coun
try was bound for the everlasting bow-wows. The dem
ocrats took a hand at the same mouthy patriotism but the
republicans having beat them to it made their efforts
seem tame in comparison. And when it was all over our

two wet counties and west of them four. Of the six
counties going wet all but one, Wasco, were for Hughes.

as much their country as anybody s else.
The poet Saxe wrote somewhat sarcastically :
"Jennie is much concerned, God wot,
For the good name she hasn't got."
That is what the patriotic politician has been worry
ing about for four months.
A brief glance at the election, its results and, the causes
thereof, will convince anyone that while we were all talk
ing patriotism that that noble attribute had little or
nothing to do with deciding of the election. In California
it was largely a feeling ol resentment that gave Hiram
Johnson : 100,000 more votes than the candidate for presi
dent on the same ticket received.
In Washington it was about the same. Here in Oregon
that "stood like a rock" there is a strong suspicion that
not the silent vote but the secret one gave this state to
Mr. Hughes. The power of the secret vote was demon
strated at the primaries, especially in Portland in June.
Due, so it is claimed, to Senator Lane and the president s
private secretary, a large proportion of the federal ap
pointments were Catholies. The secret anonymous vote,
it is asserted, went against President Wilson on that
The women's party vote was also cast for Mr. Hughes,
declaredly because President Wilson had not used his
power to compel congress to submit a constitutional
amendment in favor of suffrage. There was no especial
patriotism in that or any of the other things mentioned.
Then Tammany, the great New York organization, went
back on the president for reasons best known to its lead
ers, but whatever they were it is a safe bet that it was not
any feeling of patriotism that moved that body to cast its
votes against its party's nominee.

lhe Oregonian paraerapher continues to sneer at
Wilson despite the fact that a majority of the voters in
dorsed his Mexican policy, and that among these were
tne soldiers who were at the border.
It will not be long before Oregon is so dry that there
will be dust on the Willamette, so to speak. Hornbrook
will fold its labels and ship its goods elsewhere and the
bootlegger will probably get unusually busy. The law
will become effective on the proclamation of the gover
nor, and this is one document of that kind the people
generally will pay attention to.
W. Lair Thompson, president of the senate, has been
defeated for re-election, and now it is believed that
Senator Gus Moser, of Pprtland, will be elected to pre
side over the upper house. Such a change would indicate
that Oregon politics are going from bad to worse at a
very rapid pace.

I hope some day to write a song that will
astonish all the throng on this old planet
groping; but meanwhile, since I have to
buy the children lids and shoes and pie, I'll
take it out in hoping. I often think if I had
time to put my best into a rhyme, John Mil
ton would look faded; but writing doggerel
that pays takes up the passing hours and
days, and keeps me worn and jaded. I don't
suppose I'll ever pen the ode that will aston
ish men, and bring me Shakespeare's
laureis; and as ot old my ink shall flow, ex
pounding lessons all men know, and bargain counter
morals. But when all day I've lyred and lyred, until I'm
frazzled out and tired, it's pleasant to sit dreaming of
that far day when I shall write an ode so full of force and
light, the critics will be screaming. And thus your dream
is soothing you, though you may know it won't come true,

goal; and so, for duds and grub and coal, you struggle on

Again I thought of telling Clifford of

I deemed ttiat it wuld make Clifford
angry at me, and perhaps complicate a

About J o clock i went for a lone
walk along the lake front. It was a
cold, bracing afternoon, and I walked
rupidy. Then I did a little shopping
and about 5 o'clock returned to the ho

had made me hungry, began-to think of

to tell him the reason for dining in my
