Kmcced at Toledo, Oregon postofflco, 23 serond-ilaes matter, under the Act of March 3rd, 1S79. KstaWished Twenty-Nine Years Ago. SUBSCRIPTION PRICES One year, In advance, $2.00 Six Months, In advance $1.00 Foreirn AHvrrtinintl Representative THF. AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION PEOPLE BACKING TAX REDUCTION la spite of Interference by officials and socialistic organizations tho fight for t;ix reduction In Oregon goes on. The State Tax Reduction convention was jumped upon ns nn occasion to prmuite a state Income tax. A committee of three was named to select a committee of seven to prepare 'keen a sense of Justice and duty under the law to permit a carefully planned demonstration to determine his course of action. Instead of putting the Pres dent In an embarrassing position before-the country, the propagandists have merely given him one more op portunity to prove lit? fitness for the hlsh alike he occupies, i'.y refusing to be brow-beaten, Mr. Harding has won the confidence of the country in an increased desree. ' INVISIBLY PRESENT A'Moscow publication says the Un ited Stateg is "invisibly present" at Genoa. So far as the United States is a subject for speculation by the delegates as to what they would like to get out of us In the way of loans and other favors that may be true. Thanks to the wise decision of Presi dent Harding, the United States is Hot going to suffer damages from Ge noa any more substantial than the "presence" the Moscow correspondent thinks he discerns. ' o COMMERCE BOOST FILE through tlie timbered reserves and the private forests? That the government's persistent campaign of education is having a beneficial effect iu reducing the firs loss is shown by the fact that In 1921 a considerable reduction was made over the proceeding year but there is still room for Improvement.. Kvery camper or traveler who goes into the forests Is charged with his share of the duty of protecting them. See that campfires are extinguished, be careful about dropping ' lighted matches, and do not throw away burning cirarette stubs or cigar. If every ind'vldual will see to takine care of this himself, about fltiy per cent of tho Are loss can be eliminated. 'Marshfield Nows. LET'S JAIL OUR POPULAR .

On top of high state taxes and a fed eral Income tax, It is believed that a state income tax would drive capital out of the state and prevent asw cap ital from coming to Oregon. CANT STAMPEDE HARDING " Some clever propagandists organized "children's crusade" for the purpose of inducing President Harding to grant a general pardon to men convict fed of Interfering with the prosecution of the war. The children, of.couqsg, had nothing to do with it, except as they were directed by the managers, who financed the trip, prepared the tanners and staged all the proceed ings. Knowing that the "crusade" was wholly the work of agitators who had no direct interest In the prisoners but wish to establfeh tho principle of free: dom to oppose the government in time of war, President Harding refused to receive the crowd. Extreme radicals in all parts of the country are now, endeavoring to create prejudice against M!r. Tlardlnj by deolarlng that lie refused to receive the petitions of children for the pardon of their par-1 ent. The fact is that the President PERSHING IS RIGHT General Pershlns declares that had this country been adequately prepared "there is little questlbn that the Un ited States under strong leadership 'could have prevented the world war altogether." it is a strong statement, but when we remember Mr. Wilson's vacillations towards Mexico, his pacif ist attitude, and our general unpre paredness there Is no wonder that the kaiser thought this country would never go to war and that he could proceed accordingly. A USELESS WASTE. " The dry summer season is almost at hand and with it comes Increased danger from forest fires, the majority oj wiilch can be prevented with the exerplse of caution. ' . The forest service of the United States is, anxious to have citizen ac quaint themselves with the great for est reserves and. beauties of the ua unto heaven but nobody knows what to do about it. , Where, oh where Is the Anto-Snloon League now? Why can't Its officials and members start an educational cam paign? Why don't they watch the prohibition enforcement crews and gather evidence against the lame ducks? If ever educational, propaganda was needed, it is right now.
