Just when Oregon was congratulating itself that the
worst was not yet to come, and that the liquor question
v.-as definitely settled, comes another and decidedly new
feature of the matter. So far as mere man is concerned
the state is dry as Joe Miller's jest book or a campaign
speech, the average one; but with the dumb beasts that
are supposed to know better than to tackle the booze it
is different. Now it is the family milk cow that needs
n-fVii' miner Rpfmp thp state went drv there was never
much said about bovine dissipation, but recently several
complaints have been made about bossy getting on a real
old fashioned jag. It all comes from the silo, that is the
lag does, for bossy has developed a decided taste for the
juice that drips from them and she gets soused"bn it in a
way that is scandalous and that would bring a feeling of
envy to the mind of a man accustomed to drinking not
wisely but too well. It's the intoxicating silo juice that
has led the staid and once respectable family cows down
the broad way, and given the old girl's a touch of "the
life." Now the family milk provider has to lean up
against the barn while the lacteal is removed from her
reticule. She doesn't stutter or get her words mixed like
a real man would do, but she makes a good stagger at it.
The question is what effect will this have on the milk
supply and on those' who use it? Will it not so affect the
milk that a test will have to be applied so that milk con
taining more than two per cent alcohol will be taboo?
Will the silo have to go? Will the gum-chewing quad
ruped be allowed to indulge in strong drink forbidden her
owner? Will it require a constitutional amendment to
stop such beastly dissipation, or can the legislature find
a way for putting an end to it? Will the old soaker
denied his matutinal dram be also driven like a galley
slave away from the silo at night and herded therefrom
ly day? Can the state afford to make the cows go dry?
It is a subject full of knotty problems, and perhaps the
miickest solution can be reached by passing the whole
matter up to U'Ren.
Mr. Rollin Lynde Hartt has come from somewhere in
the far east, probably New York or Boston, and has dis
covered the west. It is new and amusing to him, and he
writes home to tell all about it. He thinks it is wofully
ignorant about diamonds and dress suits, and considers
it quite low in the way of civilization. What the east and
easterner does not know about the west would embrace
about all the knowledge there is. Down in Nevada a man
fresh from the east was made station agent on the old
V. & T. road from Reno to Virginia City. Soon after as
suming his work a burro was shipped to his station down
at Franktown. The rancher to whom it was shipped in
quired for it several times but was told there was no such
thing there. At the end of the month in sending in his
report he mentioned the fact that he was "long one jack
ass but short one bureau." And then Manager Yerington
recalled the tracer he he had searching for the missing
burro. The east however is intelligent about eastern
The Oregonian finds fault with the south for having so
large a representation in the electoral college when it
casts so small a vote. Perhaps we should say, finds fault
with the rest of the country for permitting it. Of course
it is alluding to the fact that the negroes are not allowed
to run the southern states and bankrupt them. We do
not defend the depriving of anyone oi the right to vote,
but it is a condition not a theory that confronts the south.
It is.o.t an ideal condition but is it any worse to deprive
a-clas&.to. race of its voter: t-h'an-it is, to. control and vote
them? Is it any worse to.-deprive, the .ignorant negro of
the south of his vote than it " is- f o ' herd the ignorant
mass.e of New.York City .tb,e-.coal miners,. of Pennsyl
vania and other such' labor cenfcers'and-vote them like so
many sheep? We neither defend nor palliate either, but
submit that of the two evils the treatment of the negro
of the south so far as his vote is concerned is preferable
to the manipulation of the ignorant classes alluded to.
By the way, what is the matter with Oregon retaining
the anti negro clause in its constitution; and how about
The railroad companies as they always do are crying
before they know whether they are hurt or not and are
fighting the Adamson law without giving it a trial. If
they we're human beings instead of corporations they
.would try the law out knowing the people would help
them to have the law repealed n it proved impracticable.
But instead, they follow their old rule or ruin policy and
undertake to be greater than the country which supports
them. They may think an $8,000,000,000 organization
will have great weight, but they will find that its size is
dangerous only to itself, for the whole country is still
bigger. The. roads have taken a poor time to undertake
to run things, for with the annoyance of the car shortage
the people are ripe to take a fall out of the big capitalists
at the first dare.
Idaho may have a contest over the governorship. The
democrat, Alexander was elected by about 700 majority,
and his opponent claims, or his friends do for him, that
at least 700 ballots were marked at the top showing the
voter intended to cast a straight republican ballot, and
a cross was also placed opposite the democratic candi
date's name showing they intended to vote for him. These
ballots were counted for Alexander, the judges taking
the view that the special marking expressed the voter's
choice rather than the general mark. The contestants
hold these ballots will be beaten. It looks very much as
though the matter would be passed up to the courts to
According to the statements filed there was not much
money spent by candidates on the election. A look at the
returns will explain why. The republicans had a sure
thing and so., did not have to spend any money campaign
ing; and the democrats had no more chance than the
socialists or prohibitionists and so would have been fool
ish to let go of any hard earned coin.
Our esteemed contemporary, the Oregonian and the
single-taxer Mr. H. G. Wagnon have become twisted in
discussing Elijah Ahab and some other pioneers. The
Oregonian likens Mr. Wagnon to Elijah. To a mere
looker-on it seems that a comparison with David at the
cave of Adullam would have come more nearly fitting.
The good book after telling of David's flight to the caves
of Adullam says: "And every one that was in distress,
ami every one that was in debt, and every one that was
discontented, gathered themselves unto him; and he be
came a captain over them: and there were with him about
four hundred men."
Hughes' plurality in Oregon, with practically complete
returns was only (5557. Outside of Multnomah county
Hughes and Wilson ran practically even, eastern Oregon
piving Wilson a majority of 002.5, which about off-set

The Peoples' amusement company, of Portland, has
had a contest for the purpose of getting suggestions for
a name for the present Pickford theater and 3,478 names
were suggested. Despite all the trouble and "fuss" over
the proposed change the old name, "The Star", will be re
tained. And yet the name itself suggests what the new
one should be. There is but one answer: "The Pick."
Spain has just purchased several hundred ions of war
munitions in the United States. Evidently Uncle Sam is
getting to be a tight wad. Only a few years ago he was
presenting her more munitions than she knew what to do
with and was compelling her to take them.
A California man is said to have won $920,000 on Wil
son's election. If the story is true he is "some better," as
well as somewhat better fixed. It might be remarked
incidentally that he had the courage of his convictions.

Oh, what's the use of statesmanship, with
all its advertising? Expenses never lose
their grip, and costs are ever rising. We've
listened through a long campaign to states
men's endless chatter; they tried to make
all subjects plain, save those that really
matter. Why do we find this life so hard?
why are we always busted? With states
men evermore on guard, our ills should be
adjusted. The statesman in your neighbor
hood will hand you countless pledges, but
when it comes to making good, that states
man always hedges. The statesmen talk of abstract
things, of bogeymen alarming; they lend imagination
wings, and make their discourse charming. But still the
price goes up and up, on all we must be buying, and for
a chance to dine or sup, we hear the children crying. The
statesmen talk their empty truck, and make the welkin
quiver, and while they feed on roasted duck, we fill our
selves with liver.
Prosperity of Lumber j
Industry Will Benefit j
Western Manufacturers
.Seattle, Wash., Nov. 17. " Prosperi-1
ty in the lumber industry-of the nation
will profit the western manufacturer;
firKt ami greatest. Depression will hurtj
him most and more seriously. The trade,1
extension movement of the lumber in-j
dustry is therefore of greatest import

part of the United .states."
This was the analysis nf lumbering'
conditions made by K. li. Goodman of
(ioodmnu, Wis., leader in the Mississip
pi valley hemlock and birch ad vert is-;
ing campaigns. As a lumberman con
vinced against his anticipations of the'
value of advanced advertising and
promotion method in the lumber in-,
dustry, he declared he had come westj
to learn and get ad wee, but also as a
witness to the success of advertising.!

When Clifford came in to dress for
dinner I told him of meeting Mabel and
Clara, and that I had invited them to
luncheon the next dnv. .
"That's all right as . long as you
don't expect me to entertain them," he
replied, scarcely listening to my enthus

"X can t promise. Anyway I am
not keen on being bored by silly chatter
for an hour or two."
"Oh, please come!" I tirgod. "I
shall be so disappointed if you don't."
But in spite of my urging, he did not
appear the next day. The girls came
promptly at 1 o clock, and we went im
mediately down to lunch. But my dis

we were eating our ice cream the waiter

"Indeed he is!" echoed Clara. And
I thought "Why can't he always be
nice like this," as I agreed with them.
A Matinee.
After luncheon Mabel suggested that
we go to a matinee- But Clara wanted
to see "The Birth of a Nation," so we
went to the movies instead. I had seen
it, but didn't mind going again.
The girls were wild over it, and as
we took the box of bonbons with us, I
too had a good time. (I am disgraceful
ly fond of sweets even yet.) When we
came out llabel proposed that we walk
back to the hotel; then they would take
a taxi to the home of a relative thev
were visiting on the North Side.
As we wnlked along I thought there
was something familiar about the broad
shoulders and swinging gait of the man
. in ironi or us. And lust as I recognized
i that it was Burns Mayson, he turned
and saw us.
' ' This is indeed a plewnre, Urs. Ham

i"May I ask if you are going back to

I laughed, "and have been munching

"Barkus is willin'!" she answered,
so it was settled and we marched along
with Mr. Mayson, first one of us and
then, another walking beside him.
It was a nice-tea room where he took
us, and he ordered buttered muffins
and tea, and was so jolly, told euek
