fused to call the legislators together unless thejr them
selves requested the session, agreed to serve without ex
pense to the state and confine their actions to ratifying
the suffrage amendment. - . : ..
Fourteen states have so far ratified the amendment
and enough more legislatures assemble during the winter
to give women the vote in the 1920 national election. ' A
special session is not necessary in Oregon unless these
states fail to ratify the amendment. Then and not till
then, is a special session in order.
Oregon women already have the ballot and the de
mand for a session comes almost entirely from outside the
state. Oregonians are not so enamored of legislatures
that they care for the infliction of a special session.

A EEAL WOMAN
Salem business men responded loyally to the request
of the Kings Products Company for financial co-operation
in the reorganization of the industry whose output
furnishes a home market for" the fruit growers and far
mers of the region. It was a fine exhibition of the new
Salem Spirit, which will make Salem a real city and the
Willamette Valley the producers paradise of the North
The welfare of our agricultural region rests upon the
assurance of 'a readv market for the products. Without
such a market assured there is no incentive for produc
tion. Without the production assured, profitable opera
tion of the industiy is impossible. Local co-operation
assures the produce, insures the manufacturer, and ere

Dehydration is but one of several industries assuring
the local grower a market, providing payrolls and making
Salem famous. The rnez company nas popuianzea ine
loganberry and its bi-products throughout the land. Great
canneries also send the products of Oregon broadcast and
the need of the hour is greater production, for we are in
the infancy of development..
. ' . These industries will bring other industries, meaning
more permanent pay rolls for the city. The opportunities
of the Willamette Valley grower, properly advertised will
bring in countless other producers and the entire valley
eventually become a continuous orchard and garden, ani.

Unless Governor Olcott surrenders to the profession
al suffragists, and calls a special session of the legisla
ture without restrictions upon its action, we may soon
pee these fanatics placarding the capital grounds, burning
the governor's letters and otherwise making the sorry
spectacle of themselves they made in Washington. ( Such
tactics are the logical sequence of the campaign of de
nunciation they are waging against the governor.

the executive and he did not depart from it when he re-

BUYING THE BEST.
The best things are the cheapest, and shoddy things
are punk; that man's a chronic weepist who blows him
self for junk. Si me bargain he goes hunting, in hens or
rubber tires, in celluloid or bunting, in hats or cast-off
lyres. He doesn't ask the merit of calico he buys; he
doesn't bite or tear it, or hold it to his eyes; if it's as cheap
as blitzen, he thinks the deal will pay; and every game he
sits in he plays this sort of way. His clothes are always
eeedy, his shoes are down at heels, he's looking poor and
needy, though he earns many wheels. He blows in all his
wages for things that do not wear, for birds in cheap tin
cages, and wigs that have no hair. The chairs, all go to
pieces, he purchased at the store, depositing his nieces and
aunts upon the floor. His car is always busting when he
would take a ride, and accidents disgusting deface his
snowy hide. His boat is always leaking when he would
row a bit, and coroners are seeking his bones, on which to
sit. His dog is always mangy, his cat was built to squall,
Ins cow is lean and rangy, and kicks him through the wall.
He always hunts the cheapest when he would shopping
wend; cheap prices are the steepest, as we know, in the
end. My large and shining dollars in good things I invest ;
in buying cows or collars, I always want the best.

Kditer Journal: I denounced the re
cent raise in telephone rates believing it
unjust and uncalled for and I will here
with hand you a clipping from the Ne
ligh, Muurnak&t Leader:
The state railway commission hus
announced -flint it has granted to
the Buttle Creek Telephone com
pany, of Madison county, ponnig
siou to raise the net rnto on farm
phones from $13 to $15 per year
and also on business and residence
phones when rental is not paid by
the UHh of the month. , Tho com
mission also desido the company to
pay uo dividens in excess of 8 per
cent. The couipiiiiy has been pay
ing 10 per cent in the past.
I eii.uiot seo why farm, residence and
business phones can be operated .u Ne
braska at $13 per year (about $1.08
per month) and declare 10 per cent divi
dend while in Oregon where tho ples
grow KMd there are no destructive,
storms or lightning comparatively aim
four putrons on residence, wire and yet
here the company ia going to the demo
uitiuu puw-wows at $18 per year for
residence phones and double this amount
for business phones and had to be grant-
d nu increase. Is it because, peophi
here will stand for it or what is the
trouble! You will notice that the Ne
braska company asked no increase and
the commission granted no increase but
onlv a penalty if not paid by the 10th
f each month and. at the above rates
tho company was enabled to declare
such an exorbitant dividend that ths
commission had to restrain them.
