CARRANZA PLAYING POLITICS
Now the Mexican question "bobs up again as it will
perhaps continue to bob tor an indefinite period. Car
ranza is a candidate to succeed himself as president and
evidently finding his acquiescence in - the presence of
American troops on Mexican soil is not helping his cause,
has demanded the withdrawal of the Pershing force. At
the same time he is devoutly praying that this be nut
done, ior irom present appearances the minute it is done
one Villa will begin to make it extremely tropical for
"his sideburns. He should profit by recent happenings
in the United States and visit the barber. Removing his
whiskers would do less harm than removing the United
Senator Sherman, giving tho editors a dig in his
speech before the Epworth Leaguers at Springfield Sun
ilav niirht. said he would rather have Satan edit his
manuscript than the modern editor in a hurry. He did1,
r.ot, however, say whether or not he meant the newspaper
Satan. He also said: "Why believe me people, if the
modern newspaper existed in the time of Solomon, they
would use type eight inches high to print the fact that
Solomon had 700 wives." The senator is plainly out of
liis sphere in discussing newspaper affairs and shows a1

never have mentioned the 700 wives at all. The scare

Easterners will no doubt wonder what Oreeonians are
talking about as they read of the Webfooters rushing
alter overcoats and heavy under garments with the
thermometer showing but four or five degrees below the
freezing point. Back in the corn states it would be con
sidered just good fall husking weather.
The present cold snap is certainly a remarkable one
for this time of year. If it can be accounted for in no
other way it might be blamed on the election, for it is a
cold day when the republicans get left when a democrat
runs to succeed himself for the presidency.
Congressman Hawley and Walter Tooze are not good
guessers. The former said Coos county would give
Hughes 1,500, and the latter that Umatilla would give him
a thousand. Coos gave Wilson 107 and Umatilla nearly a

A great silence seems to have settled down on and over
Oyster Bay. If this continues for any length of time the
cove should take its name from the silent clam.
This American language is certainly mystifying. A
headline in the Oregonian reads: "Woman fights fire

Here is news clipped from the telegraph reports that

roads on November 1 was the largest in nearly ten years,
according to a summary of surpluses and shortages made
public here today by the American Railway association.
At its semi-annual meeting the association will consider
plans which, prepared by committees meeting here today,
will aim to solve the car shortage problems. November The unkindest thing said recently is that New Jersey

' The latest returns from Minnesota showed Hughes
with -01 lead with the soldier vote most of it to count yet.
Whether Mr. Hughes or the president is to finally carry
tiie state will depend entirely on the vote of the boys on
the border. The soldier vote counted up to last night had
not gone so strongly to Wilson as it was claimed it would,
and while the results will, of course, be close it is anyone's
guess yet, with the odds slightly in favor of Hughes sim
ply because he has a small margin of a lead.'
