T ! lion dl an i7iegn imiiinu i-iigiiv iiavmg as its object tlie carrying on of an education;.! campaign ',,r 1,10 Msc Hl Oregon Made dnoi It is statetl that tliis campaign will be carried on through publications and that later on the League will establish an official publication of its own. Of late there has been quite a campaign car ried on hy some of the cnllmstiastic made-in- OrepMi people, but it will be noticed that most of the campaign has been made through the City dailies. About the only part hf conn ty papers have been taking was the publishing of news items sent out from headquarters for which the aforesaid country papers received no pay, the pay advertising all going to the Orcgonian, Journal and the dailies in the larg er cities. Now it is proposed to establish an 'official publication for the league and that pub lication will no doubt be sent to every country paper in the state with the request to ex change and clip freely from their columns. The manufacturers of Oregon are carrying on this campaign very largely and it is a cause worthy the careful attention and support of every Orcgonian.- Oregon made goods and Oregon products should be given preference hy Oregon people, lint the manufacturers arc not playing exactly fair from the standnoint of w j advertising. Instead of establishing some ifficial organ to be sent out to the people of i lie state urging the made-in-Oregon move ment, why don't they use the publications Iready established and which would reach many more Oregon people than could their ifhcial publication. The country papers cadi inure of the readers than do the dailies or monthly magazines. The country papers ire looked to by the people in the various com munities to furnish local news and good adver tising matter. There is very seldom any ad- crusing in the country press but what is reliable and the people o fthe communities lainw this. If the manufacturers of Oregon and those interested in the niade-in-Oregon movement would do a greater service for their anise than to send their advertising to eastern magazines and the establishment of oflicial "indications, they will use the columns of the ountry press to carry on their campaign and to enlighten the people along these lines. The st will be much less and the result far tfrcatcr. - PSYCHOLOGICAL Hie distinguished eolleire nrcKnIont now t t,tc lR'a'l f the National Government, a week " ten days ago told n party of Western busi- iss nun who came to Washington to plead f'T a cessation of hostile legislation, that the present depression in business is "merely psychological.''

DEALING IN GENERALITIES The Mist docs not pretend to be the defend er of any county officer, neither noes it pro pose to slander and villify public officers with out some foundation. There are some people in this county who have been charging that the county officers generally are accepting graft in some form. It would be a great pub lic service to the people of the county if those disgruntled persons would point out some specific officer and some specific act of grafting so that the offender could be brought to jus tice and the grafting stopped. The charges are generally matin by some body who does not take the trouble to look into public matters and whose imagination runs amuck every time something is done by the officers which does not exactly suit the aforesaid disgruntled per son or persons. To charge public officers with grafting is a serious matter and before being made should have some foundation. To sit up and say that the county officers are graft ing means nothing except to work on the inv agination of the credulous for selfish purposes. W hen making any charges it should be done in a frank, open and honest manner instead of dealing in glittering generalities casting un warranted suspicion upon every man who has been entrusted with the management of public affairs. As a matter of fact there is no grafting be ing done by the county officials and all such charges are emanating from some selfish mot ive or from persons who are not informed oi by somebody who wants a little notoritey. SUFFICIENT REASON Ride up to Portland and back on, Capt. Abel's car any day in the week during .this entire summer and you will pass from ten fifty men going and coming in both directions, with blankets on their backs, all looking for work. The big newspapers arc telling Un people that work is going to be plentiful and times are going to be good. President Wil son says business conditions are good and that the apparent hard times and lack of work is only "psycohlogical." The men who are walk ing through the country dont feel that way. They say there is no work at living wages and that the cost of living is just as high as it ever was. Such conditions have not existed before since the days of Democratic administration 18 or 20 years ago. To the ordinary mortal who can not figure out the details of the pro tective tariff and free trade, this is sufficient reason. Unless conditions change very radi cally within a short time, the days of the Democrats in power are numbered. KILL THEM ALL It is probable that about forty measures will be on the ballot this fall for the people to vote on. Some of the measures already proposed look to be very dangerous while the others would not help in any appreciable manner, except to raise taxes. Oregon is already over burdened with laws which do no good and under the present system any body with a wild theory can get up a bill and have the people vote on it, very often getting it p iss d. through some method, cither of misrepresen tation of ingenious arguments. This would be a good time for the people o "sot d.wn" on these theorists and foolish law givers aivl vote NO on everything that copies up. It would have a tendency to stop the abuse cf the initiative law. Unless some sort ot -i brake is put on these fellows the Initiative law will become a joke and the purposes for which t was intended will be forgotten until it is re pealed itself. Work on the sewer construction in St Hel ens has been suddenly stopped. Property owners through whose property the sewer was being convr ted have secured restraining orders Irom he Court in.-1 H''slions :on cerni ig damage could be s:'!le l It seems that the property owners presented to the Council propositions to grant the neccir.n-y rights of way upon the payment of r- certain sum of money as damages, but the Council, acting upon the provisions of the charter which provide for the building of sewers through private property without the payment of damages until after the construction is com plete, turned the offers down. The result was the injunction suit which will cost more to the city, more to the contractors and more to the property owners than the full amount of dam ages asked by the aggrieved parties.

EUROPEAN PLAN AMERICAN PLAN EVERYTHING MODERN AT THE A HnAVTU'UL KPOT There's a beautiful spot in St, ens, I love, Arched over by blue sklos far nbovo, Whore robins and sparrows are choristers sweet, And whote songs are a ploasure to hear. Where glad spring's silken harp strings Proclaim her return, And sweet roses growing there, Take the sun's kisses that burn, Uroathe a Creators care, and whisper a message to all. In this spot, theres a fountain, Where the rain-bow oft rests on its bosom cool, When the sun with Angers of gold makes Jewels of the drops as they fall. My gaze on the Court House, now rests, And the beautiful river, flowing by Where the Sea Gulls fly around, The white sails of the boats I can see And the silvery waves, as- they dance - away, Hold my heart captive, with their graco. Now the robin's love song, Through the drowsy noon hour, Which with mo will ever last. And bring to me memories of Joy, Which with me will ever abid. ; E. M. K.
