FIUME AND DALMATIA.
WHAT PARTY MEANS.
' A correspondent recently asked the Oregonian to ex
plain the difference between a democrat and a republican.
The editor side-stepped the question; merely intimating
that the republican party was so eminently superior to
the democratic organizations that specifications are whol
ly unnecessary. This reply being unsatisfactory, the Ore
gonian yesterday argued at length upon the necessity for
maintaining political parties in this country, and contend
ed naturally that the republican organization is more
capable of conducting the government than is its demo
cratic rival. While the reasons upon which this conclu
sion is based are a little obscure, since both parties in the
main are led by intelligent American citizens from var
ied walks of life, and, therefore, should be equally cap
able of organization and administration, yet we are not
disposed to quarrel with the Oregonian on that point. It
is of course the personal opinion of the editor, prompted
by the natural political prejudices that are handed down
from father to son in this country.
We are willing to go further and agree with the Ore
gonian that political parties are necessary in this country
in order to secure effective expression of public opinion.
Organization is necessary in politics as well as in religious
work or anything else that calls for efficiency in order
to produce results.
What the Capital Journal does object to, however, is
the making of one's political party name a fetish which
is worshipped by its devotees on all occasions and regard
less of consequences. The party ought to be a means to
an end, not the end itself as so many Americans seem to
regard it. The best test of citizenship ought to be willing
ness to change party allegiance at any time one's party
docs not stand for what is best on paramount issues of the
times, or when its candidates do not measure up to the
proper conception of public duty. Party organization oji
such a standard would go far toward guaranteeing the
integrity of our government and its institutions.
However, the too popular conception of party alleg
iance is voiced in the rallying cry of the ward heeler when
the campaign opens, "stand by the old party, boys, and

good government, lhat is why we ieel, having no pouti
cal aspirations, we can do more to advance the public in
terests as a free lance in an overwhelming republican state,
than by seeking to strengthen a party already too strong
for its own integrity at times. A political party so strong
that it becomes virtually a machine is a menace to public
interests and voters of all parties would take a keener
interest in public affairs, in the primaries and elections,
if the contending parties were more evenly balanced and
men and women were prone to vote their convictions in
stead of their political prejudices.

What are the facts about Fiume and Dalmatia, for
the sake of which Italy has seemed willing to defy the
Allies and wreck the peace settlement?
The city of Fiume proper is predominately Italian.
Its population is officially given as consisting of 15,600
Slavs and 24,200 Italians. It is, as these figures show, a
small city. But this census ignores the suburbs of Rus
sak, across a narrow river, as much a part of Fiume as
Cambridge is of Boston. It has 10,000 Slavs and 1,500
Italians. Other outlying territory that will naturally go
along with Fiume when the boundaries are drawn is so
overwhelmingly Slav that the demand for Fiume amounts
to a demand for the annexation of 100,000 Slavs to 30,000
Italians. Racially, therefore, the Italian claim is not con
vincing. The legal claim is no more convincing. Fiume was
not promised to Italy, even in the secret treaty with Brit
ain, France and Russia, of which so much has been said.
It was promised to Croatia, which is now a part of the
new Jugo Slav nation.
The legal claim to Dalmatia is somewhat better, bas
ed on this treaty; Italy was promised certain islands and
ports of the Dalmatian coast. Her recent demand, how
ever, has been for all Dalmatia, the whole eastern side of
the Adriatic, with all the islands, coast and much of the
In that area, according to official figures, there are
less than 18,000 Italians, and 610,000 Slavs. It is clear
the principle of self determination of poo-
As a matter of fact, the Italian claim to Fiume and
