DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL
BY HOFER BROS.
Thoro is already speculation as. to
tho composition of the next Republi
can stato ticket.
Thoro Is no one has the hardihood
to deny .that Govornor Chamberlain
will bo a hard nut to crack should
too run for a second term.
Neither da there any doubt that If
a convention finds free expression
and is harmoniously conducted, It
can pick a winner.
Thoro are at least two Republicans
Who could be named and would make
a winning race even against Cham
berlain. Governor Chamberlain showed his
band In the Multnomah county elec
tion by defeating three machine noml
aices, and his strength with the peo
jplo is undoubtod.
If tho Republicans run a factional
amchlno progrnm, look out for break
ers. Ditto If they stack up Insincere
on reform principles.
Tho direct primary law may wreck
sand ruin tho Republican party, and
what Its: effect will bo or whether It
will be operative at all no man can
With political power centralized at
Portland, with the monopoly of tho
machine emphasized by that law,
what will be tho outcome no man can
"7oreordaln or predestinate."
If tho Republicans again trlflo with
ttho flat salary proposition on which
"Chamberlain was elected, they will
Invito the political black eye
overal other mattors.
Too much Jack Mathews, too
much of this or that, listening to bad
advisers, or narrow-minded leader
ship that dooB not tako Into consider
ation tho whole state, will easily up
set tho little webfoot ferryboat that
must safoly carry the party across
Ui6 deep troubled waters,
WHY NOT PRAY FOR RAIN?
"With prevailing drouth threatening
the spring grain crop, Tho Journal
makes tho suggestion that a public
jprayer meeting be called.
Public prayers for rain have been
resorted to, with great success, In Cal
ifornia. Tho last tlmo tlioy tried It
was ovordone, and that state was del
uged. There Is some fear that prayers
might start tho clouds to leaking In a
way that could not be stopped
A prayer meeting for rain ought to

If Dr. Driver Is put on tho public
wtato prayer committee ho should bo

Campbelllto school of theology. I)y
carefully balancing of tho foices
that appeal to dlvlno Influences a good
result could bo secured.
But seriously considered, a prnyor
mooting for inlu might do a great
amount of good. IT WOULD BE A
DEMONSTRATION OF FAITH IF IT
DID NOT END IN PRECIPITATION.
A regular old-fashioned campmoot
Ing at Turner usod to bring lain, but
.as their center of Influence has been
transferred to Eugene, the power to
bring rain seems less effective.
Nothing toiualus but a public prny
or meeting for rain, unless wo should
losolvo to hold a Fourth of July col
oblation at Salem,
HONESTY IS NECESSARY.
Don't fool tho people. In tho long
inn It will not pay. This advice Is
good to all politicians and persons
who dnbhlo 'In public life. It Is good
1o tho buslnosa man and to tho pro
fessional man. Abraham Lincoln will
ulwujs no romomboroil for his wis
dom, wliuu ho tall: "You can fool
Home of tho peoplo nil tho time and
nil of the people some of tho tlmo,
hut you can't fool nil of tho peoplo
nit the time."
Honesty in politics Is domaudeil
from even the small officer. Tho lit
tlo fellow who starts In to graft de
servestho amo censure that bier fol
low" In crlmo receives who has larger
The only way to correct evil is to
correct it, and put it under tho ban.
Temiwrlzlng and excusing public
abuses will not euro wrong doing.
Politics cut little figure In theso
questions, when tho graftor gets to
work. He may be wearing tho brand
of Democracy for a purpose and har
pooning tho sheklos, and vice versa.
The thing for the peoplo to do under
the circumstances, when they locate
one of that breed, Is to land on him
hard, Just as an example to others
that may follow.
Leniency In dealing with public of
ficers fosters contempt for tho power
that placed them In positions of trust,
and Is bad policy.
OUR WORLD'S FAIR BOARDS.
There Is a great deal of kicking
about the composition of tho two
World's Fair boards that are handling
Oregon interests at St. Louis and at
About tho only man who has ac
complished great results, outside of
the Oregon delegation, Is Harvey
Scott of the Oregonian, tho only news
paper man on the two boards.
Thero Is Uttlo satisfaction In kick
ing at tho way these matters are
managed, and the people ought to be
thankful If they are not asked to put
up another $500,000 taxes before they
As a rule, tho politician out of a
job, and who depends on such public
employments for his existence, works
his way onto theso fair boards, and
puts them In disrepute.
But that Is an American custom
. . ..
So on or lonS standing, ana an tno sen re
specting citizen has to do Is to stay
away from expositions that are made
mere harboring places for cast-oft
ETHICS OF TAXATION.
Tho over-present subject of taxes
Is very suggestively discussed in
Wlnthrop More Daniels in a paper up
on "The Ethics of Taxation" in the
Juno Atlantic. After tracing with
vivacious pen some of tho humors
Inconsistencies, and wrongs of our
present system, Mr. Daniels con
cludes In an optimistic vein.
"Fortunate It is for us that the
lines upon which tho reform of di
rect taxes must proceed have been so
cleat ly marked out, and that some of
our commonwealth have already tak
en pronounced stops In tho right di
rection. Tho taxation of real estate
by and for tho local governments ex
clusively, the practical exemption of
credits and chattels In . Individual
hands, and' tho. delegation both of tho
administration and tho proceeds of
corporate taxation to tho state govern
ments, foreshadows the financial re
foim to which we may sometime attain."
