COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER
"I pledge allegiance to my Flag,
and to the Republic for which it
stands, one Nation indivisible, with
Liberty and Justice for All."
The Btate press, commerciul bodies,
civic clubs and individuals generally
throughout the state of Oregon are
condemning Senator Lane for his!
filibustering act which cmbarassed
and humiliated the nation. Oregon
is a strong republican state and Lane ;
is a democratic senator; moreover,
this democratic senator is from the j
only state in tho west which gave;
Hughes a majority. Since these'
clubs, councils, civic bodies and in-:
dividuals are condemning I.ano tnr)
his action, asking for his resigna-'
turn and neaping iuiuso upon ins a.
neati, 11 migm ne wen 10 usk who is
responsible for this so-called traitor
being in tho senate. Certainly the
democrats of Oregon are not solely
responsible, for they are in the min
ority. It therefore stands to reason i
that many good (?) republicans must
liuvo lent their assistance to Iune.
Now these same good Lane Oregon
republicans should at least bear a
part of the abuse they are giving the
democratic senator who tiiey elected,
iur cenuiuiy iney are accessories
before the act." and should the
for certainly they are "accessories
eminent be embarassed by the ac
tion of Lane and the other filibus
ters, the Lane republicans are partly
to blame. With Chamberlain, Lane
and West as the guiding stars of the
state, republicans should see tho folly
of their ways. It should be a lesson
While no actual conflict has oc
curred tho United States, according
to our version, is at war with Ger
many. When that nation announced
her unrestricted submarine warfare
on January 31, virtually she declared
war asalnst tho United States, as
since that date this country has been'
ciiantmen should bo armed and the
orders are to shoot on sight, it seems
that this government lias accepted :
tho challenge of the kaiser. It is J
just about the game as a boy on the!
east aide of the street telling tho boy j
who lives on tho west side, "If you ;
come near me I'll striko yen." So :
