GET DOWN TO MAIN ISSUES forms, f established Industry and our; present form of government is the Nonpartisan League and airtllated i organizations such as the Triple Al-( liance, the Workers' Nonpartisan League, the radical labor parly and i the farmer-labor organizations. The managers of the Nonpartisan League, are smart enough to choose candidates who can gain tho support of tlicso various groups. In the past the League has worked . in the open. It Is now working quiet ly In various states. Its trained so licitors circulate among farmers and ' other citizens preach Its doctrines, and secure members. No publicity is i given their actions. Thus the organ!- j zatlon gains headway and a foothold i in communities which think they an ! safe from this new form of socialistic1 New Debate Trainer at O. A. C.

The Mist cannot see where much progress has been made by either I arty In the arguments they have put before the people. We are not con vinced, nor have we found many who are, that If Cos ls elected president, he would overthrow the constitution of the United States and establish a grog shop in the justice scales of the Goddess ot Liberty. It seems to us th.it all of the discussion as "o the prohibition question as regards his candidacy ls wasted effort and en ergy. Likewise, the Mist bellaves that the mud-slinglng campaign ot the democrats as to the huge "slush" fund ls ill advised and we are equally out ot patience with the democms, C'cs in particular. In his effort to tar Raiding with the $15,000,000 slush fund stick. Neither of these ques tions are the main question before the American people. Whether or not Cos is wet and whether or not Harding has a slush fund does not seem to us to compare draw together all the elements of dis content under one banner. It is amply financed by the funds of Its members and can hire the best talent to keep Us organization Intact. Herein lies the danger from the League as an or ganized minority will often put to rout an unorganized majority. . Miut NeocdHiiry.

J. Evensen had bought the Chief." The Chief says that neither of theso gentlemen are financially Interested In the Chief and that Mrs. Minnie Goodeaough Hyde Is the ea itor and publisher. The Mist is glad to make the cor rection though Its information turns from a reliable source and It wishes the Chief and Its publisher the best of luck In tho venture. Recently the Chief has shown a , marked Improvement in its news col. umn and general makeup and noth-; ling would please the Mist more than in importance with the necessity Oi to see the Chief prosper. The paper substituting republican principles of is doing its part for the development business and economy for thoso ot democratic mismanagement and ex travagance. It would be far better for both parties to submit to the people the real questions of the day and let them give to such main issues serious J thought and to the subordinate is sues only the attention to which they are entitled. ot Clatskanie and surrounding coun try and merits the support of the resi dents of that vicinity.

But to him who appreciates what has been going on in America rural districts during tho past quar ter century, this fall's big crop titer all the early handicaps, is a harbing er of much bigger things for the farmer by the end ot the next quarter century . Since the eighteen hundred and nineties thinking, progressive farmers havo been going more and more U scientific methods crop rotation, planting legumes, use ot lime, correct fertilization, building pure bred herds and flocks, and so on without num ber. All this meant heavily Increased production when tried, until the least progressive farmer couldn't help but realize the advantages of the new methods. Thus, the scientific farming idea is pretty well established and produc tion per acre ls increasing by leaps and bounds. There are two phases to American farming progress and we have just explained the first. The second phase will follow as day follows the night. It ls summed uy in tho one word marketing. The lieviug the public of some extra cash. PUBLIC FORUM THE 5 PEK CENT. INTEREST MEASURE Mr. S. C. Morton, Editor St. Helens Mist, St. Helens, rOegon. My dear Morton: A friend of mine who was In you. town recently tells me that there seems to be a very thorough under standing of the falucics of the pro posed 6 per cent, iatorest rate bill among the people of your county. I am very glad to know this and am sure it comes from the information which has been disseminated through your valuable publication. There ls no danger of the 5 per cent. Interest bill passing if people understand what It will do. The farmer has learned scientific agrlcul-! sreat danger ls that some people ero turn and continued ereat increases llaue to ueueve mat it win result in in production ls only a matter ot detail. It is up to him now to learn marketing. He must reach the con sumer more readily and quickly, and he must get a profit out of his huge production even out of overproduc tion. It IB the problem of the next quar ter century. We rather think the great Farm Bureau organization will solve It'. And we wouldn't be sur prised it one chapter of the story will show the farmer and farm organiza tions among the biggest advertisers in America in that day. . MAINE GIVES THE POLITICAL TREND OP THE COUNTRY. The result of the Maine election ls a great triumph for the republicans and an omen of national victory in the November election, says the Spokesman-Review. The republican, nominee for the governorship re ceived a plurality over his democratic competitor approximating 66,000, the largest ever received by any as pirant for the office. The state sen ate is solid;.- republican, and the popular branch of the legislature contains only 12 democrats. The four republican representatives in congress were elected by Increased pluralities. The state remains a Gibraltar of republicanism, more so than ever. Governor Cos, democratic nominee for the presidency, calls the result "the pyrotechnlcal display for this campaign." It ls nothing of the sort. The total vote and the huge increase of the republican vote prove that republican success In Maine ls the first onset of a tidal wave that wlb aweep over the entire country In No vember. The campaign was almost wholly waged over national issues, the league of nations In partlcurar, and demonstrates the position of a great majority of the voters. It ' shows what has been and ls In the people's mind and that this ls to be a republican year. It Indicates a trend through the nation toward the republican party, and 1 bound to in fluence the party's national cam paign favorably. . Discerning people no longer con sider work an affliction but as a blessing and an opportunity tor service. their actually getting 5 per cent, money but if they will stop to think tor a moment they will realize that you cannot force people to loan mon ey at 6 per cent, when .they can get better rates In other states. I have always been particularly Interested In watching the develop ment of your county because it, more than any other Oregon county, has reached the point where the cutting of Its forests requires a change in your Industry from lumbering to somothlng else. Eventually this con dition will obtain In every timbered county in Oregon but. the other coun ties are not as near to !hia point as Columbia county. If the residents of your county do not find ways of substituting some thing else for your lumber Industry your prosperity will steadily decline. You have an Ideal dairying climate and I suppose that industry will con tinue to prosper and grow but I think you should also reach out for man ufacturing enterprises r.nd a devel opment of your water front. No matter wht now entorprlae you turn to. It will cost money and It Is Just as important to you end the other people of your county that th llttlo $500.00 loan is available for pulling stumps and clearing land as It is for the $500,000.00 to be avail able for manufacturing enterprises or a development of your water front. Tho cutting of your timber also presents a problem in taxation be cause you are losing a taxable asset. Every time a tree ls cut and you do not replace It by building other In dustries the burden of taxation on your present farm lands will be ex ceedingly excessive. All of these developments require borrowed capital and It the 6 per cent, interest rato bill should pass and you could only get such money as can be borrowed at 5 per cent, you would not get any borrowed money at all. As I stated above, this problem Is very simple If peopra will only stop for a moment and think but the great trouble ls that nomo peoplo are liable to think that this really means 6 per cent, money -nd in thr-.t case they would naturally vote for tho amend ment. Very sincerely yours, ROBERT E. SMITH. MADE IN OREGON!
