PUNISHMENT WAS SWIFT
The crime of William Horner at Kelso, Washington,
met with swift punishment. A week ago last Saturday
according to his statement he murdered Mrs. Bassett
with whom he had been living and also her two children.
In less than a week he was captured and returned to the
scene of the crime. Ten days after committing the crime
he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life imprisonment,
the most severe punishment permitted under the laws of
Washington. In these days of telegraph and telephones
the person who cimmits a crime is senseless to the point
of foolishness. This without regard to the moral aspect
or immoral one, but purely as a business proposition.
When any man measures his wits up against those of all
the balance of the people in the United States he is going
to lose out every time. Occasionally a crime is committed
and the criminal escapes discovery but generally not more
than a few months elapse before the crime is brought
home to him. One of the greatest aids in running down
criminals is the press. No crime of any magnitude is
committed but that the newspapers have a story con
cerning it and a description very often of the criminal.
This with telephones reaching to the remotest parts of
the country makes the getting away job a difficult one.
' Portland is feeling the effect of the war now in everv
i branch of business. The ship buildiner boom is at the hot-
torn of it all and the main cause of the wave of prosperity
which has poured its flood of workmen into the city until
there are not vacant houses left. The housing of the new
comers is proving quite a problem. A recent statement
in the Oregonian was to the effect the city showed a
gain of 24,000 in the past few months. To house and
care for that number of people requires quite a good sized
little city. It would be in fact a half larger than Salem.
It is probable this growth will continue for a while at
least, for no matter when the war ends, the ship build
ing will have to be carried on for four or five years at
great speed to make good the losses due to submarines.
BERRY PICKING A PATRIOTIC DUTY
The berry picking this year will not fall to the laboring
class, so called. They are otherwise engaged at good
waes, and in permanent and needful occupations. The
picking this year is a patriotic duty and must be con
sidered such by those who can find the time and who will
do so with this motive in mind, rather than because of
the monetary return. The people of means must recog
nize their responsibility and get under the load. Other
wise Salem will be hard hit.
Loganberries will be ready for the pickers in three to
four weeks. The prospects are for the largest crop in
many years. But on the other hand the supply of pickers
seems to be the shortest ever experienced. Our towns
people must arouse themselves to the situation, or a large
proportion of the berries will go unpicked and a loss of
berries means a loss ot dollars to the community, and a
Joss of valuable food product to ourselves and our Allies.
We intend to point out the urgency of the situation and
we expect a prompt response on the part of our people.

And this is one of the camps that Senator Chamberlain,
aided and abetted by the Oregonian, maligned as unfit
places in which to quarter men where they were under
fed, unclothed and in everyway neglected! It seems, how
ever, that the army-builders were able to do good work
and accomplish wonderful results in spite of the efforts
of Roosevelt, Chamberlain, the Oregonian, et al, to
hamper them in every move they made. In fact the
Oregonian knows, and Roosevelt and Chamberlain know,
that in all the history of a war-torn world ho soldiers
were ever so well cared for in every respect as the pres
ent national army of the United States. Old Civil war
veterans remember how differently they fared in the try
ing days of 18G0-5.
Amsterdam reports the Germans as exceeding all their
former atrocities and brutalities. This may be, but if so
the balance of the world will have to admit that in this
"art"' the Germans are really super-men. What they
had accomplished in this line before gave them a world
record, and if they have succeeded in lowering it, even an
Apache Indian would refuse to enter the lists with them.
Somehow it seems that the wrong names get fastened
onto the right persons, so to speak. At Grants Pass Sun
day a minister discussing the order to conserve flour and
make Oregon wheatless said that Josephine county would
go the limit to back Uncle Sam, but that as citizens its
people have a right to demand that the using of all cereals
for the brewing of malt or spirituous liquors be stopped

that holds these citizens to the dual empire back from

laterman division mutinied on the eastern front when
ordered to the west to help Hindenburg. Once the spirit
of revolt enters the army it will hearten the civilians

THE WOODS FULL
If there's a neighbor vou dislike, don't, tet
him make you sore; don't think about him
while you hike to do the useful chore.
Forget him and his evil ways as you weave
to and fro; the woods are full of worthy
jays whom it is good to know. If some one
shows a tightwad soul when war demands
are made, and clings the tighter to his roll,
I would not be dismayed. The country will
not go to smash because of skinflint lads,
who glue their fingers to their cash, and
hide their surplus scads. The woods are
full of loyal gents who alwavs have the
price when asked, to dig up plunks or cents, or make
some sacrifice. The woods are full of boys who say,
"What can a fellow do, to help our soldiers far away, or
split a Teut in two?" Don't think that treason's growing
rank, that every man is vile, because some noisy, noxious
crank gets up and spiels a while. Don't think our institu
tions punk, our bulwarks bound to fail, because some fel
low in Pohunk was ridden on a rail. The woods are full
of delegates who make it plain, I wist, that in these braw
United States great hearts and souls exist Our eagles
soar on noble wings, and do their martial stunt, but we
won't see these regal things, if we for buzzards hunt.

Often, at this time, when I felt that

To mother, duty meant much. Had it

seemed too heavv for me to bear.
At t imes, I felt that if George were
consistently neglectful and cruel to me,
I could soon learn to bear it; but, every
now and then, he would be so kind,
so thoughtful, that my hopes would rise
and I would have a brief period of
happiness. Always, I was either in the
depths, or floating on the clouds. There
seenu'd no Buddie path.
He called me about one o'clock and
was so solicitous, so tender that I fair
ly ached to throw myself into his arms
and tell him to love me beg him to
take me away from all these people
h.9 used to know, and to whom he com
pared ine to my disadvantage. But, in
stead, I dressed quickly, and braced
myself to say good-bye to Mrs. Collins
and the others I had met. We should

"We shan't be alonet I know almost
eveiyone in Newport. I want you to rest
tonight. Tomorrow I shall introduce you
to some of my friends."
"It is no use," I said to myself, as
he left mo to smoke.
It may seem strange that all this
jruyely did not appeal more strongly
to "ne so young as I. Had 1 been really
happy, it probably would. But I blamed
'11 my unhappiuess upon the life George
led beforo we were married upon the
