We know that our program is based on common sense; we know that it
, workable. It haa been given every test. We know further that It Is in
accord with the Ideas of the majority of the people because it is composed of
the ideas ot the majority of the people as they have from time to time been
,1-mulated and as they have here and there been put into successful operation
Direct nominations, for example, has been carefully tested, and. as re
ilts this year prove, it has been a success, ln Ohio. Pennsylvania, California,
sas, Nebraska. New Jersey, and other states, the people voted this year
for their choice from President, and they made it extremely clear what that
c was. Had they not had ,ha, opportunity, there would have been no
t hi al Chicago.
In Oregon, senators are nominated directly by the people, nad elected
directly by the people, and no one expressed dissatisfaction with the system.
ln Colorado and California, where women vote—as we permit them to vote
n all our party deliberations—a far higher standard of politics has been set up.
These few ideas have been taken from the people, and they work admir-!
ly. our other ideas, also taken from the people, will work equally well, i
ire hopeful of success-, because this is not a party of leaders or of office j
tera or of men controlled by their own ambitions. It Is a party of the'
: ople, and as such it is bound to succeed.
THE BATTLE SONG.
(Air. Battle Hymn of the Republic.)
We stand at Armageddon and we battle for the Lord,
And all we ask to stead us is a blessing on each sword:
And tribes and factions mingle in one great fighting clan,
Who issue forth to battle behind a fighting man.
We stand at Armageddon, where men have stood before,
And, whatso be the cost of it, our voice is still for war.
Now let tbe traitor tnickle and the falterer go fawn.
We only ask to follow where the battle line is drawn.
We stand at Armageddon, where fighting men have stood,
And creeds and races mingle in one great brotherhood:
And here, from day to darkness, we battle for the Lord —
Thy blessing. Great Jehovah, on each impatient sword.

COVER CROP FOR ORCHARD.
By J. L. Stahl. Horticulturist, West
ern Washington Experiment Station,
It Is time to sow a cover crop tn
our orchards. A crop of this sort is
one which is planted in the late sum
mer or early fall and grows during the
winter while the trees are dormant.
The objects of a cover crop in the
orchard are to supply humus, to pre
vent washing, and also to prevent the
leaching out and loss of soluble food
from the soil by the winter rains.
The kind of crop to grow as a cover
I for the orchard will depend a great
deal on the condition of the trees, th?
soil and good culture, plenty of barn
yard manure and the trees show exces
sive growth of branch and twig, with
no fruit, a crop of wheat or rye would
sometmes be of benefit. Most of our
orchards in Western Washington have
never suffered from excessive wood
growth due to cultivation or to the
heavy application of manures, and
one of the leguminous plants would
be a better crop to grow than either.
These plants thrive well in our cli
mate, add nitrogen to the soil and
make enough growth during the win
ter to add a great deal of humus to
soil when fall sown and plowed un
der in the spring. It is hard to say
which particular legume is best to
plant in this locality Common vetch
! (Vicia sativa) is quite generally used
j and it seems to give most excellent re-
I suits Hairy vetch (Vicia villosa) is
j more hardy, but is also more expen
Seeding should be done the last of
August or early in September to give
the greatest amount of plant growth
before it is turned under in the spring.
The amount of seed will depend some
what upon the age of the orchard An
old orchard which gives a great deal of
shade will need more seed than a
young orchard where the soil is ex
posed to the sun. It will require a lit
tle more common vetch as the seed Is
larger. Under ordinary conditions
from 70 to 100 lbs. of common vetch
per acre or from 50 to "0 lbs. of hairy
vetch, would be sufficient seed.
Seeding is best done with a drill,
but can be sown broadcast and work
ed in with a harrow.
The time to plow under the crop in
spring will depend upon the soil and
; its conditon. Often tbe mistake of
; leaving the crop stand too long in the
, spring is made and much moisture is
: lost, which otherwise could be con
served in the soil.
j In the spring, before plowing, the
j crop should be chopped fine with a disc
and after plowing again disced well.
'so that the soil and the fine pieces of
green crop are well mixed.
Next to manuring, the growing and
I turning under of a green cover crop is
the best means of adding humus to the j
! soils of our orchards in Western !
"From the standpoint of labor,
the more that Dr. Wilson, who is
the democratic candidate for presi
dent of the I'nited States, talks the
more tiresome and wishy-washy does
he become," says the Labor World.
"He persists in avoiding the vital
questions that labor wants him to
answer. He has never had an e
qual in dealing out platitudes that
mean nothing definite and that
please nobody who wants to know
exactly how he stands on that burn
onestion of the day. He has
declined to face even the democrat
a nlatform and has declared that,
a platform is not a program. He
has gone as far as to state that he|
wants a relate tariff, whatever
that may mean, although the plat
form that he has been selected to
represent declares all protection un
utional. The truth is Dr. Wilson,
has not in any single instance de-;
dared himself in any manly or clear
manner that directly concerns labor, j
