Sep. 30, 1916 EDITORIAL COMMENT ' The fact that the Democratic cam paign managers have booked Secre tary Daniels for a speech In Maine, seems to Indicate that they have aban doned all hope of carrying the State and simply don't care what happens to the ticket In the' September election. FLEETING PROSPERITY IS FOOL'S PARADISE Don't Let Smoke From Munition Factories Cloud Your Brain With Belief It's Abiding. PROTECTION, OUR BULWARK Forget Not the Dire Conditions Which Depressed This Country Under the Democratic Free Trade Tariff. Prior to the War They Will Re turn to Plague and Hunger You Unless the Republicans Are Re stored to Power. i Senator J. Ham Lewis, a spokes man for the administration, "to at tempting to apologize for the Presi dent's mollycoddle expression that we are "too proud to fight," explains that jit is an old Latin quotation. But the 'people already know that It is out of date and the expression of a decadent nation. "We don't want to maintain a po litical almshouse," remarked Mr. Hughes to the North Dakota farmers, and a nation" applauds him. Amer icans are beginning to see a possibility in the near future of regaining their self-respect. i . I The administration seems to have sold everything it could, from the na tion's honor down to the smallest rural postmastership. ' Secretary Daniels says this Is no time for politics. And it's no time for Secretary Daniels, either. ' Senator Lewis, defending the Presl- 'dent on his "too proud to fight" ex pression. Intimates . that It was due ,8o!ely to the Ignorance of his audience that the popular interpretation that : has been put upon it was evolved, and that anyway It didn't mean what It I appeared to mean. The latter state- ment can be taken with.- some degree 'of confidence, as it Is quite a well 'known fact that most of the things the I President says do not mean what they -are supposed to mean. 1 " ' ; Secretary BedSetd has presented another of those living illustrations of the old adage that "fools rush In (where angels fear to tread," with one 'important modification. . The differ- jence In the Secretary's case Is that he 'walked right In and turned around land was klcted right oat again. I The Democratic contingent .In the 'Senate Is all worked np over the fact I that the terms of the treaty for the purchase of the Danish West Indies leaked out." "Pitiless publicity," you t understand, has been consigned to the crap heap with a Urge assortment of .Yariooa other Democratic policies and j THE RIGHTS OF AMERICAN : CITIZENS DO NOT STOP ' - AT THE COAST LINE. V. "When I say - that I . am an ;: American citizen, I ought . to ; say the proudest thing that any j man can say In this world. . But : you can't have that pride If American citizenry Is a cheap V; thing. If It Is not worthy - of ;! protection this wide world over. : There la no man who could sue- cessfully present to an Amerl- can community the - platform that an . American citizen's H rights stop at the coast llne; :; and that beyond that American !: ! life is to be the prey of any : j: marauder who chooses to take jjj It." From a speech of Mr. : :s , Hughes in the West. "When we contemplate Industrial and commercial conditions," says Mr. Hughes, "we see that we are living in a fool's paradise." This is the con dition to which the administration and Its supporters have deliberately closed their eyes. When the war cloud broke over Europe, this country was experi encing the most serious depression It had known since 1S93, when the Demo cratic party and its policies were In full control of the United States. Suddenly there came from over the sea a demand lor munitions 01 war, clothing, food, supplies, everything needed by vast armies and by coun tries whose sons were taken from the field, and the workshop, never to return. As a result our exports and the bal ance of trade In our favor have reach ed figures far surpassing any ever be fore known. Temporarily, especially In the East, there Is no lack of work at high wagess . for Europe must pay whatever price America sks. " No thoughtful person would' imagine that this condition Is anything like real prosperity. How false It Is, we in Oregon, who have the clearer vision. because not clouded by the smoke from munitions factories, have fully felt and fully appreciated. What the Republican candidate for president says about It the Democrats know to be true: "Our opponents promised to reduce the cost of living. This they have failed to do, but did reduce the oppor tunities of making a living. Let us not forget the conditions that existed in this country under the new tariff nrior to the war. Production had de creased; business was languishing; new enterprises were not undertaken; Instead of expansion there was cur tailment and our streets were . filled with the unemployed." The suspension of these conditions ts not nation-wide, only sectional, and depends upon the duration of the war. Those who think otherwise are. in deed, living in a fool's paradise. Port land tOre.)
