EUGENICS is a comparatively new word, U means the
seicrtoo of race improvement. Having studied nlid
jklvantietl toiinml'ntul plant improvement, attenlion is at
last bi'iiiR bestowed upon the most vital problem of all -the
improvement of humanity.
A Portland woman, La Heine Helen "Baker, has written
a great little hook upon this subject a hook (hat can he
uad in a eonple ofltmire, one that everyone interested in
human welfare, should read. U is published by Dodd
Mead and Co., of New York.
The book, says the author in her preface, is written to
interest the American public in a vitally important and
sadly neglected sub.jeiit. "Eugenics is a word invented 1 y
Francis Gallon to cover the philosophy, collection of facts,
the science4, which regards race improvement as a desir
able and practical process. Eugenics means the eliiuiiia
tion of a vast deal of suffering and misery, which is mi-

It is a fact, proven incontcstably by statistics, that
crime, degeneracy, aiid insanity are increasing, thai our
great cities are breeding an inferior class of people, de
ficient physically, mentally and morally that certain na
tions show sigiis of deterioration, that defectives aro multi
plying. TTinust social and economic conditions are undoubtedly
largely to blame. The struggle for existence was never
more strenuous. Eugenics teaches heredity is even more
important than environmeht,that "the sins of the fathers
arc visited "upon tliq children,
generation," that as the seed, so the plant. Consequently it
aims to encourage the best births, and discourage the
Worst, to work for the benefit of the future race.
Heredity and environment, the child and its heritage,
marriage, possibilities of race improvement, education
end eugenics,' the modern feminist movement, race sui
cide, maternity, state endowment of motherhood and
sterilization of the unfit are subjects comprehensively
discussed, any one of which would take a separate editorial.
The book is well worth reading and no better invest
ment for a dollar can be' found.
RATE BILL'S POPULARITY.
TIIE popularity of a readjustment of railroad rates, to
end the discrimination against all parts of the state in
favor of Portland is shown by the vote in favor of the
initiative rate bill.
The majority in favor of the measure exceeded 12,000.
Approximately 102,000 persons voted either for or against
the bill. It carried every count' in the state by good
majorities, except "Wheele'r, which has no railroads which
it lost bv five votes, and Washington, which it lost by 111.
It is idle to say the people did not know what they were
votiuir nnOn. Thev did. Furthermore, a more extended
discussion of-the bill would
lor the people believe that
nave tlic same right to develop that an' town in Iowa or
Ulinois has in those states.
Tho railroad commission is opcnly'hntagoilistic to the
law. An effort vill probably he made to invoke the aid
of the courts against it. The legislature will he asked to
