KEEPING COOIi. All the day long I think about the snow, Tho whitened pond, the frost king's frozen lair, The berg's solid sides, the gleaming ley floe, Tho tempest's bluster and the north wind's blare. All tho night long I dream of Green land's shores. The Ico thatched cottage of tho Eskimo, Tho Ice bound sledge, tho sombre Bky that lowers, Tho winter's night that moves so chill and slow. I muse and dream of Arctic Ice and chill Until my veins run cold these summer nights, And often wake and fancy that tho shrill North wind roars through my boaes and bites. And thus oft times, while others wilt with heat And lean all limply like a wetted rag I have to put on my half frozen feet An extra blanket and a hot water bag. I. F. Ferris, in Now York Sun. Ono of tho victims of a New York Sunday boating and keg party was a follow named Booze. Ho made a des poruto effort to prove that there is somothing in a nauio and was drowned. A Now Jersey bicyclist dodged a scorching motor and was immediate ly knocked unconsoious by a goat, thoroby deepening tho chagrin of the chauffeur at having missed his man. When ho becamo tho father of triplets tho olhor day a Chicago man made so much noise that tho police had to bo called. Some men get ex cited so easily. "There is a worso noiso than thut made by the siren whistles on auto mobiles," said tho man on tho cor nor, "but I'vo forgotten what it is." Nobody is roally so big that this world can't get ulotig without him, and no ono is really so small that tho world hasn't some use for him. EITHER SURRENDER OR BETRAYAL. Ttf PRESIDENT TAFT has deserted Ballinger, Cannon, X Alilrifih of nl niul snrrondorcd to the demands of tho insurgents, as has been reported, it indicates a doplorable weakness on tho part of the nation's executive. No ono likes a quitter, least of all a quitter who deserts his friends under fire. Furthermore, it raises a question of Taft's sincerity. Concessions reported to have been made by Mr. Taft, evidently for campaign effect, will not satisfy the insur gents, any more than they will satisfy the stand-patters. The man who sacrifices principles and men for political expediency arouses a deserved widespread distrust. If Ballinger was in the right, as President Taft has repeatedly proclaimed, it is wrong to remove him. If the Payne-Aldrieh tariff bill was "the best tariff bill" wo have ever had, as stated by Mr. Taft, why listen to those who denounce it, and repudiate it by discarding its au thors, thus confessing it one of the worst. Mr. Taft's reported action election, with the old guard, who have been his defenders, is either a grandstand political play for effect, to fool the voters, or it is a betrayal of base ingratitude. Presumption is that Taft instructions, which raises the TYhile Roosevelt was away, Has he lost it upon his return, and is Roosevelt president by proxy, sort of an overlord of America? HAWLEY'S PREDICAMENT. TJ EPORTED repudiation of Uncle Joe Cannon by Pres " ident Taft, places Congressman Hawley in a pecu liar situation. Mr. Hawley has been Uncle Joe's faithful henchman. He has done valiant service in sustaining the czar-like rule of the speaker. He has "stood in with the gang" right along, and as a reward, to help his re-election, has been allowed a slice out of the "pork barrel." It has been Mr. Hawley's proud boast that he could "get things" in the way of appropriations, because he was a follower of Cannon's. He modestly claims, on his election card, to have secured single-handed about all the legislation benefitting the northwest, enacted by congress. But Uncle Joe's sun has set set down on by Taft, and it's a brave sun that can rise with such a heavy, weight planted on it. And with Uncle Joe eliminated, what is to become of his henchman? Hawley's pull on the pork bar rel will have gone also, and Mr. Hawley will be practically without influence in congress. Mr. Hawley has bitterly opposed the insurgents. He is persona non grata with them. "With Taft's support, they will control the next session of congress. What can Hawley do then? What use can he be to Oregon? There is only one thing for Oregon republicans to do, and that is to elect an insurgent to congress, not only be cause the principles advocated by the insurgents are right, but also on the ground of political expediency, of having a representative in sympathy with the ruling caste. FOUNDED ON FALSEHOOD. RG. SMITH, a member of the democratic state central committee, writes as follows to the Mail Tribune: "Your editorial, 'The Democratic Ass Brays' is found ed on a lie. I was at the meeting on the committee from beginning to end, and no one suggested or even intimated that anybody should withdraw in favor of John Manning. I was credited with making a suggestion that some candi dates withdraw, but I never used any language that could be possibly construed in that sense. In fact, I advocated getting out other candidates before the primaries if those who have filed their declarations were not the strongest men, to let the party make the selection at that time. R. D. Inman said that he thought that if the democrats had many contests at the primaries it might endanger their chance at the election. I am the interest of any person, and not John Manning. I heard but one person during my stay in Portland suggest that Myers and West withdraw in favor of Manning, and he was not very earnest about it." The article was written upon information printed in the news columns of the Oregonian and other Portland papers. It shows unreliable are the columns of the party organs, which deliberately lie about political news. The Oregonian ought to be old enough, big enough and broad enough to print the truth in its news columns, re gardless of party or faction, saving its falsehoods for the editorial page, but it isn't. Evidently the assembly de mands, "for the good of the party," that party organs keep the news columns in the rut of malicious fabrication, thus forcing the disgusted public to read independent pa pers to learn the truth. Hence tho growing popularity of the independent newspaper and the failing popularity of the party organ. in breaking, on the eve of of supporters and an evidence has followed Roosevelt's questien: Who is president? Taft had a mind of his own. sure he was not speaking in IMPORTS FANCY GAME BIRDS Charles Gay Sends For Four Pair of Reeves Pheasants Which Aro More Beautiful Than China Phoas ants To Liberate Them Hero. Charles Gay, deputy game warden, has sent for four pair of Hooves pheasants which lie will place ou tho Kd Ilnnloy rnnoh and after thjy multiply will liberate them. Thoy aro a wild bird and should do well in this count rv. The Ileovo pheasant is similar in many respects to the China pheas ant but has a longer and moro beautiful tail.
