Says Tewfik Pasha, until recently grand vizier of
Turkey:-"We do not deny

trying those responsible for
Having made this admission, he insists that he "wants
the facts known in their true light," and accordingly has
asked for an international commission 'to ascertain ths
true facts about the Armenian massacres."
He proceeds to give some
explaining how the Mussulman population was terronz
ed by "Armenian bands who
crimes , and how Armenians attacked the helpless Turk
ish, army in the rear while it was fighting the Russians.
All this has a very familiar sound. It sounds exactly
like the "deploring" that was done by Germany over the
outrages in Belgium and France, and the accompanying
explanations intended to excuse those crimes by trumped-up
charges of Belgian and French perfidy. It will be
remembered, too, that the German government had ths
audacity to ask for an "impartial investigation" under the
direction of the very German commander who ordered
many of the outrages committed. We do not believe the
Armenian is a saint, although he is denominated as a
Christian, and sometimes in the past through the years of
Constant strife with the Turk, we have thought that it was
about a 50-50 proposition, and that the outside nations
might do well to form a ring around the belligerents and
let them fight it to a finish without interference. But
the wholesale massacres and torture of the Armenians, by
the Turks, when the position of the former was helpless
during the great war, calls for the severest punishment.
"The repentent Turk should be accommodated liter
ally. There have been investigations of Turkish mas
sacres in various parts of the world until the investigators
have sickened. Still, another inquiry would do no harm
and would serve to put the "true facts" on record beyond
question. The world will know exactly what to do in the
way of protecting those helpless Turks from their blood
thirsty enemies.
' Perhaps the best way would be to drive the poor,
abused Turks so far back into their native Asia that they
would no longer be in contact with the Armenians. That
solution would be all the more acceptable because it

. We'd better watch the former kaiser, or he'll be back
on Prussia's throne; we leave him free it might be wiser
to house him in a shack of stone. Some donjon keep of an
cient pattern, with walls a score of cubits thick, with no
one near but some grim slattern to hand him musty bones
to pick. A lot of Huns are busy plotting to see their
exiled Bill recrowned, and will be till his nobs is rotting
in some damp dungeon underground. And Bill sits up, in
waitful watching, and doubtless murmurs, o'er and o'er,
"Unless they do some bonehead botching, mv friends will
have me crowned once more." I hate to think what things
may happen if Bill again his sceptre owns; perhaps some
four years more of scrappin', with ghastly toll of blood
and bones. It is no dream that Huns arc planning to bring
the old rule back again, all corners of the empire manning
with Bloody Billy's kind of men. And we permit the exile
cheesy to stay where he can help them plan; I wonder
why we are so easy; why don't we squelch the also ran?
We used to say we'd surely punish old Bill and wipe out
every debt; for all his misdeeds, base and Hunnish, he'd
have to pay in bloody sweat. He sits in peace, the mon
strous vandal, who should be fed to hungry sharks; it is
a blooming shame and scandal and why are we such easy

The Bureau of Statistics of the federal Department
of Labor has been collecting some statistics about steaks.
The price of serloin steak of presumably the same quality.
j at the same time, was found to be 28 cents in Minneapolis,
i:!2 cents in San Francisco and New Orleans, 37 cents in
Dallas and bt Louis, 4:. cents in New York, 36 cents in
Cleveland, 44 cents in Baltimore, 45 cents in Pittsburg
and Philadelphia, 50 cents in Washington, 54 cents in
New Haven, 56 cents in Boston and 65 cents in Providence,
R.I. The lowest prices quoted in this list seem to be some
thing like the varying and unstable prices in the differ
ent Oregon towns.
Why this wide difference in price should exist the
statisticians seem to have made no effort to explain. Pos
sibly the problem is insoluble.
The meat business, as everybody agrees, is dominated
by the Chicago packers. They are supposed to control
prices. If they are controlling sirloin steak prices, thev
certainly have a system of price-fixing that is beyond the

If the packers have not had anything to do with thes3
prices, there enters a different problem. The packers'
tnemseives nave always defended their apparent mon
opoly on the ground that it served to stabilize the market.
If there is any stabilization in a 28-cent steak market at
Minneapolis, 56-cent steak at
r rancisco and 65-cent steak at Providence, an ordinary
consumer cannot see it with the naked eye. Transpor:
tation charges will not explain it. Sectional prices of live
stock will not explain it. Retail competition will not ex
plain it. What will?
Senator Borah objects to any League of Nations plan
that gives smaller nations as much representation as the
United States in the executive council. And Senator
Borah is perfectly satisfied with a system which gives
Idaho as much representation in the United States as New
York, which has more than twenty times as many people
as Idaho.

lishers to decide on the plan of campaign for the coming

appeals to the newspaper editors and at all other times
does what it can to restrict and hamper their business and
make life a burden to them.
Bank deposits of Salem are now considerably past the
$7,000,000 mark, which is exceedingly gratifying. .Also it
will mean that we must dig up more money as our quota
of the coming Victory bond drive. , '

emptied his glass several times. And he
talked, talked gaily, as a person talks
when something which has caused them
anxiety, is done with.
When I begged him not to drink any
more, he became repentant, and pushed
his gins away. Then, as we sipped our
