The appointment of D. W. Higgins to be British vice-consul
at Port Angeles was an appropriate recognition of one of the
most famous of the pioneers in Western journalism. The death
of Harvey W. Scott, for many years the great editor of the Port
land Oregonian, left Mr. Higgins the most notable surviving
pioneer Pacific Coast editor. Born on the east coast of Canada,
he came West when a boy. and was a newspaper writer in San
Francisco at the rime of the rule of the Vigilantes in that city
during the '505. He was one of the founders and the first editor
of the San Francisco Call, and in his time was connected with
most of the leading Pacific Coast dailies of "the days of old, the
days of gold, the days of '49." Among the publications which
he served as editor was the Seattle Intelligencer which after
ward became the Post-Intelligencer. More than two score years
- ago he became editor and publisher of the VictQria Colonist, and
conducted the destinies of that publication for over a quarter of
a century. He served for 14 years in the British Columbia legis
lature and for a decade was Speaker of the House. Many years
ago he retired fro inactive journalism, though for a time a few
years ago he served as editor of the Vancouver World. He is;
the author of books and many articles on the history and anec
dotes of the Northwest.
In addition to being a journalist and writer of a very high
order Mr. Higgins is a "gentleman of the old school," a man
of the highest character and kindliest nature. He has passed
man's alloted three score and ten years, but is still hale and
hearty. Hundreds of friends will wish that the veteran editor
and author might survive to enjoy his position in the British:
diplomatic service for many years after peace shall have been
restored to his distracted country.
THE NEW ADJUSTMENT OF BUSINESS.
While the exports of the United States are gaining at a
rate never experienced before in the history of the country the
change in the character of the goods that are shipped abroad
has been such that it will take a little time for the business of
the country to adjust itself to the new conditions. The great
increase in our exports is in goods that formerly were scarcely
exported at all, while goods that were formerly sold in foreign
markets lie on shelves and in warehouses, unless they can find
For instance, before the war American manufacturers ship
... ped high grade shoes to the stores for particular people in Lon
don. Paris and Berlin. Now they are shipping cheaper and heavier
shoes for the soldiers that are fighting in the French and Belgian
trenches. The shoes that were ready for export at the outbreak
of the war and the materials that were in the warehouses to
make more such shoes are a deadweight on the hands of the
A similar condition prevails in other lines. We have ceased
to ship the cheap runabout and touring automobiles and are
exporting heavy auto-trucks. Typewriters, sewing machines, agri
cultural implements, tools and machinery, for mechanics and fac
tories which constituted a large part of our exports in the past
are now begging a market at home, while the men who make rifles
and cartridges are busy as bees. The people of the South find a
ready market abroad for their cattle, hogs, horses, mules, corn
and wheat at advanced prices, but their cotton is a drug on the
markets. Foreign buyers are hot after the wheat and other ,
foodstuffs that are produced in the West, but there is no foreign <
market for lumber and shingles.
It will take time for adjustment before those who produced
the unsaleable articles, those who furnished* them money and;1
material and '.hose whose business depended upon their prosperity!,
are able to profit from the change. The inflowof gold for our;:
exports, that are amounting to more than $3,300,000 a day in j
excess of our imports, is strengthening the American financial;:
structure and increasing its capacity to arrange the adjustment;:
that must come, but it will take time for the new prosperity^
that is coming to reach all the strata of the commercial and pro- j
After pointing out how "Nature is helping to bring back j i
times," the Tribune says: "The Administration did not act as!'
Providence's advance agent in these recoveries, nor could upset
ting legislation retard them." It is only when there is a Republi
can administration in Washington that Nature performs its poli
tical duties properly, and the rain falls and sun shines and bounti
ful crops ripen in obedience to partisan legislation. ;
The manner in which the British government and press has
received the protest to British interference with American ship
ping is reassuring. Everywhere there is a determinatino to
treat the matter in such a way as will lead to satisfaction for all;
Many of the students in an Oregon manual training school r
asked that the holiday vacation be dispensed with so far as they t
were concerned, and this leads the Portland Oregonian to remark
that "those are the foremen and superintendents of the years

TO THE NATION.
A century and a half has palmed
slnco the Father of his Country, in Us
ever famous Farewell Addreas, Issued
that solemn warning on tho dangor of
entanglements with foreign powers.
.Much water has run under Concord
bridge slnco that tlmo, says tho Chris
tian Sclenco Monitor, but It has not
washed out one of his arguments. Tho
declaration, "Our detached and distant
situation Invites us to pursue a dif
ferent course" from tho nations of
Europe, has been amply justified, and
If tho rulers of tho mighty republic
of today remain as wlBe as those of
the little republic of the eighteenth
century, tho day will come when the
voice of the United States may bo rais
ed not to proclaim war. but to com
It has boon said of a British etatos
:nan that if ho had boen ready to
take tho same risks Tor peace that he
wag ready to take for war, ho might
have won the gratltudo of nations.
! Tho oplgrnm suffers from this weak
ness, that It could be applied with
equal justlco to Count Berchtold or
! to Dr. von Bothmann-Hollweg, to M.
i Dolensse or M. SasanofT, as to Sir
Edward Gray. It merely means that
European politics have not yet out
grown tho feudal Instincts on which
they wero once, and sometimes still
are, nourished. Bernard Shnw may
l demand tho Incorporation of an in
ternational police for taking Into cus
tody the first nation which Issues a
mobilization ordor. Ho Is not likely
: at present to moot, oven In tho social
istic press, with any warmer support
than a mild banter. If. however, tho
day ever should come when tho Shav
ian dream should develop Into prac
tical politics, It is to be suspected
that the chief constable may bo found
in President Woodrow Wilson, or ono
of his successors.
It would bo difficult to imagine a
rnoro liberal exponont of the Wash
lngtonlan doctrine of non-Intorferenco
in European politics thnn President
Wilson. In tho present supremely
difficult moment, whon the European
belligerents aro making use of tho
White' House as a moans of giving
to the world their respective versions
of current events, ho has succeeded
in maintaining an attitude of perfect
courtesy to all and of supreme though
by uo means colorless Impartiality.
Tho tomptatlon to express his own
opinion on the events of the war must
have, at times, been peculiarly strong
but the president has never for a
moment succumbed to it. He has no
doubt realized tho fact that the good
offices offered to the Japanese and
Russians by Colonel Roosevelt, in 1905
may. at any momont, bo offered to tho
belligerents in tho prosont war. Whon
that moment comes. If tho offer Is ac
cepted. It will bo because all the com
batants feel that President Wilson has
fulfilled the demand of the first presi
dent of tho United States, in that he
has proved that ho has noither parti
ality for ono nation nor dislike for
Ted Robinson. In the Clovcland
Plain Dealer has formulated a set of
rules for dancers which it may be
well to observe. He says:
Rulo 1. Always place your feet
where your partner's feet aro not
Rule 2. If you get a partner with
whom you cannot dance, do not apolo
gize. Start an argument.
Rule 3. If you bump into anothor |
couplo growl about those cyclone j
dancers, who Beom to think they own .
Rulo 4. If when you fall your part- |
nor sits on your car, do not become <
embarrassed, but make a facetious re- 1
mark, such as. "Do you llko to rldo 1
on the Erie?" or "All oft?this 1b as far
is 1 can go."
Rule 3. If you should miss the floor (
with your feet and uso your partner's -
Instep, stop dancing and, look at her i
seriously, and fcsk iher whore she i
learned to dance. This will not only t
lvert suspicion from yourself, but '
