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.

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.

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.
