The London Globe discussing President Wilson's
speech before the United States senate openly says the
United States is afraid of Germany and intimates it is
afraid of Great Britain. The Globe then twits this
country for not interfering over Belgium; and insults
both the president and country by ridiculing the note
sending policy of the administration. Yet England has
much to be thankful for that it was notes instead of some
thing more severe that were used. Because this country
has stood so much from England she has the idea that
we are afraid of her. The English mind cannot grasp the
idea that it was the endeavor to maintain a strict neu-j
trality that caused the writing of notes, which by the way
remitted in the stopping of attacks on British passengeiv
ships by the Germans, and which it illy becomes the
bigheaded editor oi the Globe to ridicule.
Neither the press nor the leaders in England seem to
understand that it was not fear that caused the sending
of notes and the putting up. with almost inolerable ill
re&tment by England as well as by Germany. This coun
try did not 'want to add to the burden either was carrying,
by taking sides in any way. It was for this reason the
greatest forbearance was used in dealing with Germany,
ft was for this reason equal forbearance was used when
a British war vessel took German passengers from an
American ship. Instead of compelling her to return them
forbearance achieved the same result and the prisoners
were set free. It was this same spirit that made this
, .(ministration forbear when the British government de
solately rifled American mails, opened American letters,
mkI it is alleged stole the contents both in the shape of
money and information about business affairs, as well as
diverting orders for American goods to her own factories.
We put up with much from Germany in her role as a
i ea Fever, and we put up with as much in a different way
with the sneak thief methods of the English government,
that is still robbing our mails. We have done this not
from any fear of England or any other nation, but be
cause we realized the desperate straits of the warring
nation, all of whom were our friends.
It may be, should some things materialize that are ex
pected of the pigmy submarines next spring, that Great
Britain, and even the fire eating editor of the London
Glebe who by the way, is a long ways from the trenches
and danger may be glad to have America address a few
more notes to Germany. Prom the fierceness of the at
tack of the Globe editor it is fair to presume he is one of
those valiant persons in the "Tight little Isle," who would
continue the war so long as a Frenchman remained alive,
or a Russian is able to bear arms.
At the bone dry meeting Monday evening an employe
of Wells Fargo stated that a leeway of, say ten days,
should be allowed when the bone dry law goes into effect
so the company could deliver such goods as it had on
hand. That is that some date should be set on which the
law will go into effect. This brings up a phase of the
law that has not been talked of to any extent. Under the
law the express company must accept all shipments of
fered so long as the law is not against it, and if it goes
into effect without warning the company which has
nothing to do with creating the condition and which can
not avoid it or protect itself against what will happen
will have numerous packages on hand, which the law says vj,h,',
it must ship out of the state within :'.0 days after the law
goes into effect, if they are not delivered. The question
is to whom will the company ship them? The shipper has
no claim on them for they have been sold and so far as he
is concerned, delivered, and he has the money for them.
The company would have to ship them out of the state,
and to itself. The question is what it will do with them
then? Can it sell them and keep the money? Can it sell
them and send the money to the original purchaser to
whom they were shipped? If not who gets the booze or
its equivalent:

ate and house to consolidate their committees on con- j

Clackamas is feeling the pains of parturition, with
Multnomah about to take a slice off her western boundary,
if she can, and the eastern portion asking to be set off
into a county by its little lonesome. This measure will be
threshed out before the committee tonight when a big
delegation advocating the division and another objecting
to it will argue the matter to a finish. It is none of the
balance of the state's pie, but at the same time it may not
lie out of place to remark, that the smaller the county
and the more of them the greater the cost of running
them. That is, the people of Clackamas county can con
duct their affiairs more cheaply as they are than under
two separate county governments. So it seems that while
economy is the principal subject of conversation these
days, that none of us practice it in our local affairs.
Now it's up to the county courts of Marion and Polk
to get busy. The S. V. railroad company has given them
an excellent example of ability to act prmoptly and ef
ficiently in an emergency like that presented by the Salem
bridge situation.
From indications there will be more than 500 bills in
troduced at this session of the legislature, and the larger
part of them is of little or no use. This will be seen
when the legislature ends and the waste baskets are full
of measures bearing the legend: "indefinitely postponed."
I watched a wonderful -machine count up
five miles of figure; the operator, all
serene, just pressed some keys and trig
gers; it didn't sweat or tear its hair,
it didn't make a blunder; it counted all
the figures there, and put the product
under. A set of books I used to keep, when
I was young and husky, and homeward
wearily I'd creep when dusk was growing
dusky. I counted figures all day long,
above my ledgers bending, and always got
the derned things wrong, and sorrow was
unending. And when the long day's work was o'er, my
troubles home I'd carry, and there, despondent, sick and
sore, I'd raise old Ned and Harry. My children were
afraid of me, and so was Old Dog Rover; my wife would
often climb a tree until my grouch was over. But now
the keepers of the books are not worn out" and weary;
they seek their divers inglenooks with faces glad and
cheery. A thing of springs and bolts and nuts shears
work of all its rigors; a thing with brass and iron gut;s
counts up the dizzy figures. And ever thus, in endless
ways, invention makes things lighter, and brings some
sunshine'to the days of every toiling blighter.

that Burns come in and have a cigar
with him. Clifford was called to the
telephone, and when he returned said
he must go down-town for half an
hour: a man wanted to see him about
a business matter that could not be put
off until morning.
"Don't go, Mayson." he said as he
put on his coat. "I'll only be a little
while, and Mildred will give us a bite
of supper when I come back."
We sat in complete silence for a
little, a silence so fragrant with mean
iug that it became unbearable.

"No not vet." Burns replied, then, "The

did not expect this to happen. Then ;

"Oh, please" I cried, distressed,
"please believe I did not mean to be
cruel. "
"No you didn't think far enough

are we men to know when you are in

"You have no right to question me.-'
I replied, trembling all over; shamed
as I never had been shamed before.
"No I have no right, but if you
were half a woman you would tell me.
Then I would KNOW that it was all
useless," and he turned away.
"Please forgive me. for I never shall
forgive myself. Yes, there is some one

Clifford had only cared enough to be
the least bit jealous. I was going to
give him up." I confessed, and then
before he could reply we heard Clifford
