FOVXIEl 1881. Isued Kvery Friday by THK MIST 1'llU.ISHIXU COMPANY. S. L. MOOKHKAD Kdilor and Manner Entered as second-class matter, January 10th, 1912, at tho Postofflce at St. Helena, Oregon, under the act of March 3rd, 1S79. SfBSCKirTlOX KATES: One Year l Six Months ' Advertising rates made known on application. COUNTY OFFICIAL I'Al'EH. - trnr W V HUGHES SENTIMENT GROWS I"" ,nvw .!in, sc-n.imon, for j' 1NDUMK1AL Ktvictr tlio nomination of Justice Hughi's for liii-si- WAS NAMED IN 1598 s voti near El Paso, von catch a glimpse, at Vsleta. of the venerable church, now hope lessly "restored." that was built away back in 1682 after the Pueblo uprising, savs hrnest Peixotto in Scribner's Magazine. Does this sound like a remote date in American history.'' One is constantly surprised down here by the antiuuitv of the settlements. El Paso is certainly no exception to tlie rule, for it was given its name in 1598 by Juan de Onate, one of the earliest explorers of New Mexico who, having forded the Kio Cirande at tnis point, called it El Paso del Norte the Pass to the North. Fifty years later the old church and mission at Juarez were built, l.ut from that time until the Mexican war period the site of El Paso itself remained a ranch be longing to the Ponce de Leon family. After the'American occupation it became a terminal point on the old Overland train from St. Louis to San Francisco, and the rumbling stage coaches brought life and glitter to the saloons and gambling joints of the Calle El Paso. The last half century has again vastly changed all this, and the border town has been completely submerged in the steady march of modern improvement. Pioneer Plaza remains the center of the city's activities, to be sure, but upon it, instead of humble adobe homes and tawdry shops, front two great hotels, several large depart ment stores which displav the verv latest fashions and the "'largest all-concrete building in the world." MEASURES ON STATE BALLOT At least six initiative petitions proposing constitutional amendments and laws and three measures referred to the people by the last legislature will be on the ballot at the election next November. Initiative petitions which will be on the ballot are as follows : To provide for one day of rest in seven, and setting apart Sunday as a clay of public rest, and excepting necessary occupations and employments. Proposed by the Weekly Rest Day League of Portland. To abolish Sunday closing law, repealing section 212 of title 19, Lord's Oregon Laws. Initiated by Independent Retailers' Asocia tion of Portland. To prohibit compulsory vaccination and medical treatment. Initiated by Lora C. Little of Portland. Proposing law to "protect salmon in the Columbia river and its tributaries and barring fishing with seines, traps or fish wheels." In initiated by Clackamas County Fishermen's union. To remove county seat of Jefferson county from Culver to Madras. Proposed by "Ma dras for County Seat Club." The three proposed constitutional amend ments referred to the people by the legislature arc senate joint resolutions -Nos. 12, 18 ami 22. No. 12 proposes amending section 16 of article 5 of the constitution so as to give the governor power to veto single items in appro priation bills. No. 18, amending article 9 of the constitu tion, would exempt from taxation until 1935. except taxes for state purposes, all vessels of 50 tons and more capacity engaged in coast or foreign trade, which are registered in Oregon. No. 22 proposes to repeal section 6 of ar ticle 2 of the constitution, which reads: "No Negro, Chinaman or mulatto shall have the right of suffrage." SOCIALIST PARTY DENIED TICKET To nominate candidates for state offices the Socialist party cannot longer be considered as a political party in Oregon, Attorney Gen eral Jrovn has advised Secretary of State Olcott. The failure of the Socialist to cast 5 per cent of the total vote for Representative in congress at the last general election, as re quired by the statute, has led to this condition. The abstract of votes cast at the last gen eral election also discloses, the Attorney Gen eral points out, that the Socialists cannot be deemed a political party within the statutory definition for the purpose of nominating mem bers for congress except in the First District. This district was the only one where the So cialist vote for Representative was more than the required 5 per cent of the total vote. dent is one of the most leinaiKame poiiiK.n phenomena in a generation. W ithout one word of encouragement from htm ami without an organized propaganda, the Hughes senti ment waxes in every section. The Literary Digest recently conducted a poll of the Repub lican editors of the country, which showed an overwhelming sentiment for Hughes. I he Nation polled its readers in nearly all the states, with the same general result. A poll of the Recent Republican Stale Convention of Kansas revealed that more than half of the 853 delegates were for Hughes, while only were for Col. Roosevelt, long a favorite in the Sunflower state. The lioston Transcript has polled the Republican members of the Massa chusetts legislature, finding that 75 of the 140 questioned were for Hughes. It should be borne in mind that the governor and both United States senators in Massachusetts have been "mentioned" for the nomination and all three had friends. There were also some strong Roosevelt members, chosen under a fusion arrangement, but only 23 signified their preference for the colonel. In hundreds of county and many congressional conventions the mention of the name of Hughes has brought tremendous applause, savs the tdobc Democrat. The movement is genuinely spontaneous. There have been other "spontaneous" move ments that were carefully fostered by political walking delegates, lint the 1 lughes sentiment is among the people. There are some strong political influences opposing Hughes, with more or less frankness as to motives. '1 here are several political somanbulists and som nambulists who are busy in the primaries, but it is a matter of common knowledge that if Justice Hughes signified a willingness to ac cept the nomination the air would be filled with the noise of the explosion of boomlets. No matter what the result of the first ballots under the weird primary laws, when the Chicago convention gets down to real busi ness, the delegates will be found for Hughes. As for the justice himself, he should remember what John Hav said, when offered the state portfolio, when he was weary and broken in health: "I accepted it because it is an onice that one can hardly refuse.'' REGISTER AGAIN Only those voters who have registered as Republicans, Democrats or Progressives will be able to vote at the primary election in ( )i i -gon next month, neither the Socialist nor the Prohibition parties having sufficient registra tion based on the vote in 1912 for president i:d electors to be classed as political parties ac cording to the primary law. Both these parties nominate by convention. Also there are a large number of persons who have registered independent of piriv that have reR-itered as ProfrreBtsives, Prohibi tionists or Socialists, and all of these wili be unable to vote at the primaries. It is allowable for any who have believed thev would be able to vote at the primaries regardless of how they registered to cancel their registration and re-register. It is a penitentiary offense, however, for any person to register a second time without cancelling the first registration. HOTTEST ON EARTH Muscat, the capital of Oman, on the Per sian gulf, is pronounced "the hottest place on earth" by an American traveler, says the American Contractor. The day he arrived in this ancient city the thermometer registered 125 degrees Fahrenheit. To escape the mid day heat the inhabitants resort to under ground shelters called "serdabs," the sunken windows of which are stuffed with brush that is sprinkled with water every now and then to establish a current of cool air. The city is the center of the date trade of Oman, and from this the people obtain the bulk of their living. Most of the work of receiving and distributing the product is done after midnight, when the streets have cooled a little from the terrific heat of the day. That the fondness of the fair sex for wav ing manes is appreciated in Columbia county is evident from a glance at the last issue of the St. Helens Mist. Four portraits of candidates adorn one page, and all the subjects are blessed with hir sute ornamentation that would make a pianist envious. They are J. W. McDonald, candidate for County Clerk: J. L. Chittim, candidate for Sheriff; Glen R. Metsker, candidate for Dis trict Attorney, and . A. Eakin, candidate for Circuit Judge. In addition to the curly, waving locks, Mr. McDonald displays a well-developed mous tache, so full and curly that it must be the envy of any man who aspires to facial upholstery. Oregon Voter. An odd feature of the campaign in Mezico is that the American troops are sending to the United States appeals for candy. They write their friends that they want candy more lh.ui beef. Soldiers on a campaign usually long for sweetmeats, the officers say, and so the Mexi can expedition is no exception. Therefore, the motor convoy going from Columbus, M., to Mexico, last week took a large quantity of chocolate and candy together with a supply of American tobacco. The black, heavy Mex ican tobacco is not to the liking of the Ameri can troops. I A . A A A ' A A A A A A Newborn Iswo.lu.iK for l.iKanherr.v juice, i.l.-r and vinegar factory.
