IWPKK Member Xatioi.al Editorial Assj ciatin and Orescn State Editorial Association. HIS HEGVLAK l'EKEOKMAXt E. (luestioned loyalty to and zeal in be half ot tue party auu auminisiruuou now in power. Is a tact generally Known. He has beea m the past and piro at San Francisco. If Head continue, to grow In the n.ivl f.ll, vn r 11,1 xhe nas in the nasi now is a powerful influence in U'e; ghe'will be the metropolis of councils of the present national ud ministration, and is therefore en titled to his share .f the praise or blnnie that may attach to the record of the party in poer during the more than seven years past. Mr. Gompers has oeen so good a democrat that his partisanship and activity has been rewarded by the ap pointment of his son to a lucrative federal position. He lias represented the administration on different oc casions in official or semi-official capacities. Vnder these circum stances his comments on the record of the party In power cannot be classed as disinterested. He ha been a loyal democrat since the time and ante-dating his naturalization and has always been ready to come to the assistance of the party when occasion requires. So good a partisan in fact has Mr. Gompers been that he has neve lifted his voice against the franchise laws and practices Imposed by his fellow democratic politicians on the states of the south, whereby four filths of the wage-earners, white as Oregon. 1U per cem increase some record even for Oregon. St. Heleus will have hundreds of visitors here the Urd, 4lii and in ot July. Of course St. Helons people want the visitors to receive a good impression of St. Helens. A clean, attractive town will help to create a favorable Imprcssiou. With an intention of arousing the resentment of -the ni.iuy friends of Hoover in the country, the Oregon Journal craftily calls attention to the act that lie was not nominated re gardless of the fact that the galleries at Chicago seemed to want him. We would rmilind the Journal that !t should not tsar its shirt ii th.s mat ter till it ae what tile convention at Sun Francisco does to Hooyer. In an address to the visiting Shriners at Portland, W, Frouland Kendrick. imperial potentate, anioim' I other important remarks made this iverv uertinent statement: "The well as black, have been denied the siirinera believe In .ut two 'isms,' fundamental rights of citizenship. ali tMey are 'patriotism' and 'Amer- Aiong wuu tue ouier ueiuocriis icaiilsm.' We want only one lan and near democrats who havo echoed the war cry that "Congress is a failure," Mr. Gompers has issued a statement charging .s present con gress with having failed to bring down the high cost of ''itijf and has further failed to complete the tusk oi reconstruction. Of course there are people who might wonder why n view of the fact that Mr. Gom pers' party has been In power for seven yeurs and was put into power on a pledge to bring down that same cost of high living and otherwise work the nation over on the model of the New Jerusalem there is so much fuss raised over a republican congress in Its failure to do, with only partial responsibility, in a few . months what Mr. Gft.iipers' party has Utterly failed to do in seven years iwjth complete control of both legis lative and executive branches of the government. Certainly the present ...congress is a failure in the eyes of the labor leader. No republican congress could be anything else to hi hard-boiled a democrat. But at that Mr. Gompers may he ' Jiistaken in his statements. There ha been times in the pant when in lias been mistaken, and it it barely possible he may be in this ta.se. Many years ago bombs were exploded in ilaymarket Square, Chicago, at an anarchist demonstration und many people were killed. .'eral profes sional anarchists v.'-re tried tor the crime, convicted and sentenced to bj handed. Mr. Gcmpers appeared in eha!f of these men at a hearing be 3'ore the governor and in his remarks .declared that If these anarchists were hansvl, it would set back the cause ot organized labor twenty yeurs. The convicted men V'ere duly hanged, and ; we r.ll know about how many min utes, to say nothing of years, organ ized labor was set back. Ten years, ago this summer Mr, Gompers stumped the country in be l iilf of the McNamara brothers, then ,on trial for dynamiting the Lo3 Angeles Times building, in whici. several lives were lost. He exhorted laboring men to donate money for their defense and made the state ment that the McNamuras wen no more guilty of the crime charged against them than he was himself. While he was in the midst of the campaign In their behalf the Mc Namaras confessed to being guilty of the crime charged againt them. It Is probable that Mr. Gompers may be as badly mistaken today as to what Is in the .jest Interests of unionism, as he was on these oc casions. Certainly organized labor as a whole is not represented in Mr.. Gompers' appearance every two years as a democratic party campaigner, always sure that his party la the loving friend of labor and tlif.t the republican party Is the enemy of mankind. guage spoken in this country and that the language of Washington, Jellerson, Lincoln, McKiuley and Uoosevelt." The Senate Agriculture Committee has done a good turn for the farmers. There are few things on which great er production t)l food depends than a mine bountiful supply of fertillz .ng inatitriala. They aie' r.lgh and S'.-arce. Tlitt administration spent about fSO.uOO.t'UO on a plant at .Muscle Shoals to make fin nit a for ammunition purposes out of the air and that's a hat the money went into; not an ounce of nitrate came out ot it A bill to operate this now uselss plant for actual production of nitrate nd by-products for agricultural use Ins been reported favorably by the committee by unanimous vote. Hcmember how winsome Is Modesty nd how repugnant Is Conceit, (toasting wins no allies, .den resent ,domin,.'on. They rehe at coercion. And they fear over growth. Sympathy lies with tluj under dog Size and strength excite interest Hut they suggest Belt-sufficiency and ha chills the heart. The great majority, fighting In tin ranks, fel no ' fuHowsliip witi leaders. They have no love for tbn powerful Tas the distrust and fec.r of over lords that hied the. grudge ugainai big business. U is evident still In the growing trend to help In an uphill fight. So It wise to flaunt bigness. Or to show h esire to crush rivals Or to indicate dominance, usually Men who really command do not seen to attempt It. Men with the most power least display It. That Is particularly true where suc cess depends on a following. Above all, in politics and business. Ex Reported by Columbia 1 County Ab ut rai t I'o, June 3 E. I.. Hrcu t ux to John Dowd.

The closeat approach wr.B by the progressive party in 1912. vhen Roosevelt received 4,119,507 votes. T.I10 next considerable splash was made by the populists in 1S92, when James B. Weaver polled 1,041, 018 votes. Yet men go on bolting and trying 'to launch new parties in the face of tthe discouraging lessons of history. In 1872 a split in the republican . party lad to the nomination of Horace ! Orer-iey by the "liberal republicans" and the democratic party, but Grant was elected by a majorly of more than 700,000.
