IT WORKS BENEFICIALLY.
Probably most people think of the federal employ
ment service as something on a grand scale little fitted
for the needs of the everyday citizen. When he hears the
name he has a vision of handsome offices, with long lines
of returned soldiers waiting at the door, each in his turn
being assigned to the management of a railroad.
It is a big thing, all right enough, and more employers
and men ought to make use of it, not on account of its big
ness but its practicability.
The foreman of a construction gang out in lexas ap
plied to the bureau for help. Bis' need was dire. The
camp cook, true to his kind, had left without a moment s
notice. In less than an hour an applicant for just such a
job who had listed his name in the bureau files was at
the camp. Dinner was served to the minute, and all was
It is to be remembered that women thrown out of
employment by the suspension of war work are allowed
to list their names. It might be just possible that the
housewife who took pains to inquire and leave her name
would meet with as great success in locating a cook as
the Texas contractor. .
The federal labor bureau fills a real want in that it
brings the jobless worker into 'touch with the job that
is vacant, something that has heretofore not been at
tempted in an efficient way.
THAT REMARKABLE PEACE CONFERENCE.
From some newspapers one gets the idea that Wilson
is fooling the peace conference, and from other papers
one gets the idea that the peace conference is fooling Wil
son, and from others, that Wilson and the rest of them to
gether are fooling everybody else. "You buy your paper
and take your choice."
After awhile, maybe, you may wake up to the fact
that nobody is being fooloed except the pessimist who
refuses to see the honesty, idealism and effective co-operation
that are at work in Taris.
The disbelievers are not so much to blame, though.
No wonder the situation that prevails at the peace table
is incredible. It is quite unprecedented for any assembly
of diplomats to go about their work in so fine and gen
uine a spirit.
The former kaiser is said to be crazy. Had he still
remained kaiser nobody would have noticed it, however.

. THEY STAY AT HOME.
I had no chance to go to France and do some useful
fighting; I had to stay from war away and earn my liv
ing writing. I offered twice to put up ice with musketoon
and saber; the sergeant said, "You're too well fed, too fat
for martial labor. You're all knocked out, you have the
gout I say it all with kindness swayed is your back,
your feet don't track, and you have color blindness. Your
head is bald, your withers galled, your knees are sprung
and bandy; I cannot think how such a gink in war could
come in handy. Go earn your bread," the sergeant said,
"in safety and in quiet; men must "be sound not six yards
round who'd quell that Teuton riot." And so you see,
and you'll agree, I'm not to blame for staying far from
the fields of swords and shields, where battle steeds were
neighing. Yet I could weep, I feel so cheap, now that the
boys are coming from scenes of gore on foreign shore,
where shot and shell were humming. To think I sat sub
merged in fat, and punched an old typewriter, when nav
ies wrought and armies fought, and glory hailed the fight

The bill to authorize the insurance commissioner to
open offices in Portland, virtually completes the removal
of the department to that city. Already office files,
rating and other records and paraphenalia are there and
the bill now being put through this session leaves the bur
eau at the capital one in name only. The argument that
two-thirds of the insurance business of the state origin
ates in and around Portland is admitted. The same could
be said of every department, since Portland does prob
ably two-thirds of the business of Oregon in all lines, and
is aiming to dictate its politics as well, lne same argu
ment would justify the location in Portland of every state
institution and every state official,- and it is just this
thing the Capital Journal is fighting the centering of all
the business and political activity of the state in Portland.
It is not in Salem's behalf alone that we are trying to
arouse the people of Oregon to realize that the centraliza
tion of all the commercial, industrial and political power
of the state in one city is the greatest obstacle to the de
velopment of the state, at the present ime, and one that
promises to become insurmountable in tne luture.
