Annual Midwinter Meeting of Washing-
The three day meeting of Washing-
ton newspaper men, which came to
and snd in Seattle last Saturday ww
one of the largest and most interesting,
and, we dare hope one of the most ben
eficial that has been held. The meeting
was held at the Washington University
in connection with the faculty and
students attending the school of
journalism. Mr. Lee A. White, who
has been connected with this depart
ment of the university's activity 'or a
number of years, was the moving spirit
and had much to do with drawing out
some of the less assertive of the visiting
editors. Mr. White will shortly sever
his connection with the school to take
a responsible position with an eastern
publication. Mr. E. E. Troxell, a re
cent addition to the school, who
succeeds Mr. White, is acting secretary
of the Washingtou Newspaper Asso
ciation, an auxiliary to the Washington
Press Association. Bringing his ex
perience in the Oregon school of jour
nalism to bear on any problems that
may come up will help him to avoid
the rocks that beset his path.
The object of bringing together
the faculty and students in the
school of journalism, and the men who
make the newspapers, is not only by
an exchange of ideas to arrive at a
higher estimate of the duties of
the newspaper publishers in their
dealings with the public, but par
ticularly that part of the public in
which their activities are most felt for
good or evil. Many of the young men
and young ladies who expect to engage
in newspaper work attended the sessions
regularly and no doubt got some first
hand knowledge of^the trials en
countered in ever day newspaper life.
A number of questions incident to the
making of a successful newspaper, not
the least of which was the matter of
foreign advertising, was thoroughly dis
cussed and a movement set on foot
that will in time redound to the benefit
of publishers of newspapers and the
stabelizing of advertising rates.
Will Legislative Sanity Prevail?
It may be too early in the game to
express a positive conviction as to what
the legislature which met last week in
Olyrapia intends to do. If straws
indicate which way sets the wind then
also the initial acts of the legislature
may be taken as an indication of what
may be expected of our law makers.
There is an unmistakeable indication
that freak laws and laws intended to
further add to the burdens of the tax
payer will be avoided. It is too much
to hope that freak laws and laws in
tended for no purpose other than to
make a job for someone who has failed
in private endeavor, will be wholly ab
sent, but there is reasonable ground for
believing that all such will receive short
shrift. The better and more sensible
of those who have labor to sell as well
as those who employ labor in furthering
their enterprise realize that upon sound
laws depends the orderly conduct of
the affairs of men. That strife is waste
and leads to no good end. The ex
traordinary conditions brought about
by the greatest war the world ever
saw brought about new conditions.
Conditions which must be met and
solved. They can only be solved right,
such as can be ."solved by legislation,
by approaching them with the best
interests of all in view. The changed
attitude of politicians and law makers
will do more to build up industries in
this state than unbridled boosting and
hot air. The square deal for both the
working man and his employer should
be kept in sight by the legislature.
(On that depends the present and fu
ture development of the state of Wash
Too Midi Duplication in Commissions
We have a Federal Regulative Rail
• way commission, every state has a rail
way regulation commission and the
different state railway commissions have
formed a i ational railway regulative as
It appears that many members of
the state commission are opposed to
the federal railway commission. Right
here it is pertinent to inquire if the
loss of jobs with a fat salary attached,
and junketing trips all over the state,
is not at the bottom of the opposition?
"When self the wavering balance
shakes its rarely right adjusted.". If
a federal railway commission is not
needed why did the state railway com
missioners themselves form a national
organization. Forty-eight state railway
commissions, no two of them agreeing
exactly, causes intolerable trouble to
every railroad that does an interstate
business. If state regulation had been
sufficient why was there' a demand for
federal regulation? Some ten million
dollars would be saved by the abolition
of every state railway commission in
this country and railroad regulation
made uniform, and undoubtedly more
effective and "certain.
But then some thousands of highly
paid jobs would be abolished. If all
the work under our government, fed
eral and [state, that is already done by
some other government employee, or
could without additional expense be
done by some one, were abolished, it
has been estimated that more than one
hundred' million dollars would be re
moved from' the shoulders of The tax
Deatii of a National Idol
The death of Admeral Dewey last
Tuesday, the hero of Manilla Bay, re
vived memories of his diplomatic and
heroic conduct under very trying cir
cumstances. During the Spanish-Amer
ican war he destroyed the Spanish fleet
and captured the capital city of the Phil
ippine arcbipeligo. Adding an island
continent to the possessions of the
United States, will always he considered
an important event for future historians
to consider. In the light of the events
of the past two years the Manilla Bay
battle is a comparatively small affair,
but in that it marked the period of
expansion and Americas entry into
world affairs of government it will
always find a place in history. Admiral
Dewey, not only because of his de
cided victory, but because of his
"little affair" with Admiral Deidrich
just before the battle opened, when
the German Admiral maneuvered his
ship between the American fleet and
the object of attack, and Dewey's
prompt assertion of American rights,
became a popular hero and will always
remain such. His place in the galaxy
of American naval heros is well fixed.
If he never did any thing afterwards to
entitle him to distinction it can also be
added that he never did anything
foolish, as some other popular heros
have been guilty of doing. He wore
What Our Legislators Are Doing
We have made arrangements for and
will print every week a two column
resume of the proceedings of the
legislature. Because of the important
matters to be considered and the wide

the questions to come before them, the
reading public wants to be kept in
formed. To meet this demand The

in the hope that it will be found

Gratuitous advice is rarely appre
ciated by the recipient. We venture,
however, the following to our represen
tative and joint senator Use your best
endeavors to hold down taxes. Cut
out the duplicate expense in our state
government and pass no new law
that will strangle budding and re
viving industries and the wave of pros
perity which has only begun to roll
our way may gather volume and bring
back long desired good times.
