ARROGANCE COUNTER-BALANCES INTRIGUE
JGIerman intrigue has accomplished much and has
caused the war to be extended far beyond what it other
wise would have been. As trickster and trouble makers
the junkers are at the top. It is a fortunate thing that
with this trait so pre-eminently developed they have not
a particle of tact in handling a situation. or a people after
they have gained the one and fooled the other. They
cannot stand prosperity, and they cannot treat a con
quered people with decency. This is no doubt due to the
idea inculcated in the German brain for the past fifty
years at least, that the German is a superman. He can
not treat those with whom he comes in contact, especially
after having got the better of them with common decency,
or meet them as equals. In six months the arrogant Prus
sian has undone in Russia what the trickster Prussian
was three years in accomplishing. The Russian people
will soon be forced together again to make common cause
against their deadliest enemytheir friend, the Junkers.
Ukraine and Russia will get together again, first, because
of their common blood and second, because of a common
object, the preservation of the Slav race.
v Former Governor West's senatoral candidacy seems
explained by his proposal to get out of the way of Senator
McNatry, providing all other candidates will do the
earner This indicates what most people suspected when
West's announcement was made--that there was an un
derstanding between the two politicians and that they
would not run against each other. It seems now that
West's' candidacy was sprung merely for the purpose of
bargaining with theother aspirants in hopes of clearing
the field for McNary. Anyway, the West proposition
should bring the democrats to their senses and if they
tiave any regard for their party or the least political self
respect should cause them to nominate Judge King for
their senatorial candidate. No one for a moment be
lieves that West, if nominated, will make the race
The fighting around Ypres yesterday was fierce and
continuous. After a tremendous artillery battle the in
fantry was hurled at the allied armies at several points
hut no gains were made. It is claimed a heavy toll of
human lives is being taken, and that the German losses
are such that the German preponderance of man-power
ia rapidly passing away. When it does it is gone forever,
for just now the German armies are at their strongest,
with the empire combed to provide every available man.
Germany is staking her all on this drive, and if she fails
it will then be a defensive. war for her and one which
before long should wear her out. When the war is carried
onto German soil there will be a sudden end to it for with
a losing fight before them the German people will not
stand for further sacrifices.

As illustrating the difference between the American
government and that at Berlin the treatment of indigent
aliens is apt. Secretary Lansing has made arrangements
for the care of the families of such interned aliens as are
in need. The assistance to them will be given through the
Swedish and Swiss representatives in this country.

The weather has been ideal for all kinds of fruit, and
under average conditions there will be one of the biggest
orchard crops the country has ever known. Continued
dry weather during the pollinization has insured heavily
laden limbs, and there should be a cherry crop that will
be the record for years. Now that this matter has been
attended to by kind old Dame Nature, she might vary the
program profitably by sending a little rain. The winter
has been ideal for wheat and the growth is such as is
seldom seen even in the Willamette valley at this time of
the year. Just a little rain to soften the top of the
ground is all that is needed, and the crop can go for some
lima yet without suffering much, damage.

THE PATIENT PEOPLE
How patient are 'the people ! Their patience
rings the bell; it's higher than a steeple, and
deeper than a well. They hear pro-German
praters uplift their ears and bray; they see
potential traitors around them every day.
In other lands . such critters would back
against a wall, and there they'd take their
bitters---some buckshot in their gall. But
we've a sense of humor, and we have mere
ly laughed at treason's noisv boomer and
3 kultur's vicious graft. But patience, though
1 elastic, will break, if stretched too far: and
,'"u r'"-'-T,J ovmv. incuouiia uiaaiiw liic itujilc tail
ing are. Oh, now and then some fellow who
fails to do his bit, is painted lemon yellow, and told to hit
the grit. And now and then some slacker, who wears his
face ajar, some cheap pro-German slacker, receives a coat
of tar. The patience of the peopk is mighty hard to
break; it's higher than a steeple and wider than a lake;
but it's been sorely tested, and when it breaks away, it
cannot be arrested by any mortal jay. So let the fools
take warning while now the signs they see, or they may
be adorning a lamp-post or a tree.

Sub-acidity of the Stomach. II.
No organ of the body gives peo

the stomach, though It also gives
much pleasure and satisfaction.
