THE DEMOCRATIC DEARER STANDARD osts has charge of the proposed Changes Surely these American leaders can have no Interest In business condi tions that are going to work a great hardship on anyone and Congress and the people who are really tne power back ot Congress can well listen. These men bellnve that the excess profits tax and the high surtax are business killers, driving Investors away from productive industry and Into making all their Investments In tax exempt securities. They propose a re-arrangement o. the present high nnd direct burden on business, some plun to set busi ness free, to increase production and to reduce prices, that are now arti ficially raised by shunting taxes.

No. 12, land In Governor Cox of Ohio has been elmsen ns the standard bearer of the democratic party, after a long and j high surtaxeu and luxury taxes will Ibitter contest at the convention wnicn was handicapped and to a certain ex tent dominated by the administration forces. The Mist believes that Cox's nomination was nol due to the "wet delegates" ns some convention writ ers have claimed, but more to the fnct that a srent nart of the demo- cratic party was tired of Wilson and than penalizing initiative. his autocratic rule and resented nis domination The Mist' believes Harding will win out over Cox, but the hitter's recoro as governor of the great state of Ohio for three terms, will, undoubt edly, be of much aid to him In his campaign, and if he makes a whirl wind campaign throughout the coun try while Harding conducts the "front porch" campaign, the chances for democratic success are better that the average republican guesses. The democratic candidate has risen from the ranks. He Is a self made man, and, like his opponent, obtained his early schooling in a newspaper office. It is rather singular that both republican and democratic nom inees are from the lame state and both are newspaper men. ! not produce revenues, ana govern ment cannot rely upon them as a permanent peace time policy.

With little en couragement from the home people, the bund was organized and under the capable direction of Bandmaster Oleen, has become a real band, one which St. Helens and the south end cf the county niay well feet proua The members of the band, most ot them from St. Helens and Warren, are determined to keep their organi zation intact and have wonted hard to accomplish the results now appar ent. All credit is due to the leader of the band and each individual mem ber, for they have accomplished some thing which reflects credit on St. Helens, and they are entitled to the thanks and hearty support, financial and otherwise, of everyone. The Mist is proud ot the St. Helens band and sincerely hopes that it will live on and prosper. It further hopes that the support of the public, which is richly deserved, will be given. CREDIT SHOULD BE GIVEN The Fourth of July celebration is now another page in St. Helens' his tory, and while each citizen of th town is saying, "Well, we had a good Fourth," and while each visitor is complimenting St Helens, 4t is well for us to pause and think who was n sponsible for"" the succesalul celebra tion. It took work, and a lot of it, to make out and curry out the pro gram and some one had to do it. It was a lot of hard work to arrange the parade and for the exercises of the day. The fireworks were beautifu: and were enjoyed by thousands, many of whom, perhaps, gave little thought to the men on the barge who worked hard to make tho display. Conduct ing the races, arranging for the water sports and various other features of the program, was work and hard work, and some one did it. In fact, while mauy hundreds were enjoying the Fourth and the celebration, there were many good men of St. Helen., at work making the Fourth the sue. cess It was. The Mt wants to give a goodly share of the credit to Sherman- Miles, general chairman, How ard Scott, the hardworking executive secretary upon whose shoulders fell a lot of work and to' the other offi cials, E. I. Ballagh, Magnus Saxon, Tom Roy, Von Gray, Carl Johnson, Clyde Sutherland, Ed. Jones end Mrs. A. F. Barnett and many others whose names the Mist does not have ior tneir part' in maxing a success of the celebration which reflected much credit upon St. Helens. ing up after years ol doiay ana procrastination. Th country newspaper office, with its odor of printer's Ink and the con- tant call of cold typo, where the editor is required to be reportor, ed itor, publisher, business manager, iu look- after subscriptions and see to ids and collections, net to mention giving attention as a leading citizen to the affairs of his communty, is 'me of America's greatest universi ties. Out of this university have come mjany of America's greatest men. senator Harding nas gone through the ordeal of this great school with conspicuous success. and 11 Block 138 St. Helens, $1.00.. The merry-go-round was here for the Fourth and there wore many kiddies who surrendered their dime ind ONE CENT WAR TAX to ride. There were hundreds of other kid dies who bought ice cream cones and paid the ONE CENT WAR TAX. About the same time, some of our noble congressmen and senators who framed the war tax bill which makes the kiddio pay a tax on his merry-go-round ride and a tax on his ice cream cone, are preparing to take a little pleasure trip to Honolulu, Japan and China The celebrities will make the trip' for less than cosi to the government. A government transport will be used and govern ment rations will be served tor less ;han cost, and these aro tho men who made the law to tax tho "lux uries" (?) of the kiddies. The Mist wonders if these national lawmakers twill think of the pleasure of the kid dies and the tax they have imposed on them, while they are taking their pleasure trip at below cost and without war tax. Epigram Most of the mischief In this world Is done by the people who go about doing good. The good die becauso they realize that there Isn't much use living h they have to be good. It is because a woman is a riddle that man is so reluctant to give her up. No matter how loose an engage ment ring may be, the diamond never slips round on the Inside of a lady's finger. A woman's instinct is that which tells her she is right whether she Is or not. The astonishing woman is she who can conquer the world In a frock slit, has made herself. A man looks at a woman because lie wants to; a woman at a man be cause she wants hiin to look at her. Eve, London. LET GEORGE DO IT Socialism In all Its various forms, from comrnun'sm in Russia to public ownership in America, has been found to be the most wasteful nnd demoral izing form of government ever im posed on mankind. During and following the European war our country has been living under semi-sncinlism and It lias nearly ruined us. In Russia there has been the high est expression of the real spirit or socialism every fellow for himself and the devil take the possessions of the foremost. The socialistic thinker's great slo gan is: "Let George do it," when there are only two ways to get any thing done by act of God or by act of an individual. "Let George do It," Is the lazy man's Invention, resorted to when ever he gets in a tight place. If he's out of a job, out of food or out of money go to the government tor help. Instead of pulling of his cD.it sr.d goirg to work, the Socialist yells, "Let George do it" : ' i FEDERAL TAX REVISION While the press and the people are struggling over tho details of the great national political campaign, business men are wonting on a plan of federal taxation that shall displace the present inequitable system.

One of the leading oil companies has Bent out notice to the effect thai the-situation In fuel oil is becoming more stringent every day, and that orders are anticipated to discontinue deliveries of fuel oil to all not pro tected by written contract; and, as these contracts expire, deliveries are Co Immediately cease. The withdrawal of fuel oil supplies from the logging Industry means that many operations will cease during the fire season by reason of the great menace to standing timber in the use of fuel other than oil. A few years ago tho legging in dustry was Induced to chunge over from coal and wood to oil by reason of the fire hazard. The hazard con, tinues; therefore, without oil, many operations will temporarily discon tlnue. Efforts are being made by the In dustry to show the oil-producing companies that lumber Is more es sential than Joy-riding; and that fuei oil should be furnished in preference to the gasoline refinement. . Unless the embargo on fuel oil for logging and lumbering operations Is lifted, there may be a shortage of lumber when the fall buying sets in TRAIN SCHEDULE MAKES CHANGE A Blight chance in the arrival nnd departure of trains on the 8., P. & S. has been made, the new schedule of bus nnd train time bolng as follows: To Portland Bus Timo 7:55 a. m. 10:50 a. m. 3:05 d. in. 7:45 n. m.

During the "come-easy, go-tasy" period after the war prosperity was so prevalent that practicing rigid j economy was not deemed absolutely essential. Bil' even at that the majority of depositors at the Colum bia County Bank kept their accounts growing steadily. Now, however, the welfare of the country asweD as that of the individual depends upon thrift in order that returning normal conditions will cause hardship upon neither. So if you already have an account here, make 'i grow faster. SHISRMAN M. MILKS J. II.
