A WISE MAN- FROM THE EAST
Professor Matthews is having trouble working out a
plan under which the people of Oregon may be allowed
to govern themselves. Like the Filipinos and Porto
Eicans it seems that we need outside direction and ex
pert advise, or at least somebody seems to think so and
has brought the distinguished gentleman from the east to
solve the problem, issue some sort of a chart by which we
may steer our course in the future. It may be that this
idea that Oregonians were not capable of self govern
ment had its inception in the incapacity of our governor
to handle the problems which come particularly under his
personal supervision and if so we cannot altogether re
sent the reflection upon the intelligence of our voters. We
have nrobflblv pot it eominp to us although it hurts to
have to own up to it. Still we might reasonably ask for
another trial, considering the government that some
other States maintain without suffering interference of

election next fall and there is growing hope of a return
to reason on part of a majority of the voters that will
restore our claim to the right of self-government by show
ing our ability to select capable executives.
. Candidly speaking, we are not enthusiastic over ex
perts in the art, or trade, or profession (which ever it is)
of government. Next to being ruled by the kaiser we
should hate to be governed by a cold-blooded expert who
. would fix things so that the most sacred perogative of
the American people, that- of making fools of themselves
occasionally, might never be exercised.
NON-PARTISAN LEAGUE PASSING '
SITUATION IN GERMANY
The much discussed non-partisan league seems to have
practically run its course. Just as the Capital Journal
said some time ago there was nothing to worry about in
the movement and it could be left to the farmers them
selves to take care of it when it had outlived its useful
ness. There were many reasons for the people revolting
against the corporation politicians who controlled
North Dakota and some of the reforms hoped for were
worked out through the league. Naturally radical lead
ers went too far and Townley himself is undoubtedly a
sharp scoundrel who is insincere in his pretended efforts
to help the common people and was merely using them
to advance his own selfish interests. The farmers realize
no doubt that th league can no longer be of benefit to
them and will desert it rapidly just as -they have other
movements of similar nature when they found they were
not wcrth while, if not positively harmful. In the North
Dakota primaries Governor Frazier is having a hard tus
fle for re-nomination and may be beaten, and Congress
man Baer is badly snowed under. The league will dis
integrate rapidly now and soon exist only in memory
alone with many similar political organizations of the
past. It has served the purpose of arousing the old
political parties of several states to a realization of the
Tact that it is unsafe to ignore always the demand of the
people for reasonable reforms.
Efforts to sacrifice Foreign Minister Von Kuehlmann
for the failure of Von Hindenburg to win the war for
Germany cannot restore to the German people confidence
in the conquering invincibility of the kaiser's army, in the
opinion of those best versed in European affairs.
If Von Kuehlmann is forced to resign for telling the
reichstag that "peace cannot be won on the battlefield,"
all Germany will know Hindenburg's frantic ruthlessness
is used even to terrorize cabinet ministers at home. The
growth of that realization will make Hindenburg's posi
tion increasingly precarious.
Von Kuehlmann's phrase sounds the death knell of
German militarism, no matter what happens to Von
Kuehlmann. Now that the secret is out, the more Hinden
burg tries to prove the effectiveness of the . military
machine, the greater will be the final smash.
There is a certain mystery about Von Kuehlmann's ac
tion. Whether he chose his words alone or whether he
consulted with the kaiser, Chancellor Hertling and the
military leaders, cannot be positively known. It is prob
able, however that there was a preliminary consultation.
It is a noteworthy fact, however, that the chancellor was
forced to follow with an address which was designed to
restore public confidence when effect of Von Kuehlmann's
words were fully apparent. This indicates that the Ger
man people are in a frame of mind wrhich is giving their
ruler the gravest concern.
The Oregonian is writing able and convincing editorials
daily in an effort to sustain its position that nobody but
republicans have a right to work politics durng the con
tinuance of the war.

MAKING OVER ONESELF A THANK
We all know how hard it is to get j
goed results when we try to make over
an ola garment. I found it infinitely
harder to get good results in my attempt
to make mvself over aecordinir to the l
pattern I thought my husband approv-l
I had days when it seemed that I
iMirely had made progress, other days
wren .1 felt that not only had I made
i.o progress, but that I had slipped back
bemfltimes I used to think that if I
could make George over a little too
it vould make things easier. It was all
very well for me to try to make my
sdf over to suit his ideas, or' what
'.bmiirlit to ha his ideas; but how in
f!uitcly easier it would bo if be, too,
could have been altered in some ways.
Ilia (iuiet taking for granted that I
did the wrong thine befora he even
knew my version often angered me as
well as discouraged me. For days I
would not try to please him particular
ly, then I would pull myself together
and begin again.
Marriage is difficult I believe. But
marriage with a handicap such as mine
ws nearly impossible. It was such an
up and down affair my hopes up one
day, depressed the next. It wore upon
me too. I was not as strong'as I was.
T worried too much I suppose.
Once when George had corected me
abruptly and I thought unnecessarily,
"You knew that I was like this be
fore you married me."
"1 trusted your common sense as you
grow older would teach you something,"
lit bad replied. It was such little
speeches as that, nothing really in them,
that hurt, and rankled constantly.
Dignity Can Be Acquired.
I alked often to Mrs. Sexton. Since
I had confided in her she had seemed
very near to me. One day I had done
something to displease George, Bomo-

Boston, and o agreed with him.
"Dignity can be acquired, my dear,"
she said when I declared I hadn't any.
But is it worth while T All I seem to
do is to try to acquire something I
hadn't when he married me," I said
half humorously, half tearfully.
"Pear, anything that makes life be
tween husband and wife the happy
thing it should be is worth while. Noth
ing should be too small, nothing too
hard or too big to attempt if by so do
ing your lives can be made to run hap
pily and smoothly. Tou must be more
patient dear. You are vastly improved
in many ways. Bomo wasn't built in
a day, you know. Then, too, dear Mrs.
Howard, you must not n building up
your character to ploase your husband
make the mistake of tearipg down what
was sweet and noble in it before you
attempted this reconstructing process.
I am beginning to be afraid that will
result if you are not careful."
"I don't think there ever was any
thing in me worth saving," I replied.
"At least I haven't heard George men
tion any single attribute he admired.
Yet ho must or he wouldn't have ask
ed nie to marry him," I finished, more
to myself than to her.
"You have many lovcablo traits
many I should hate to seo you lose.
That you Btill lack djiity is not to
be perhaps wondered .at. But there are
certain things that you must break
yourself of doing. Do not gossip with
your servants. Bo kind but firm with
litem. They will respect you far more.
Speak of your husband, his affairs, to
no one, not even to Evelyn Reeves no
matter how intimate you are with her.
it is so easy to give a wrong impres
sion, so hard to correct it. Come to ms
whenever you will;. talk as freely aB
you like. I will help you all I can. But
with everyone else remember ' not to
tell either your own or your husband's
affairs. This has been a real lecture,

you are'getting on."

in my technique, and in my understand

that it is no credit to me; always have
loved music ever since I Was old enough
to know what the word meant, perhaps
before. Mother says that when I was a
tiny little girl I would practice until
she lifted me off the piano stool, and
forbade me to do any more that day.

never obeyed. That most of tho pun
