GIVE THE PEOPLE A SQUARE DEAL, ft 44 . faithful performance Of public duties has been seized upon by prosecuting officials in several states, and people whoj hold office, no matter whether federal or state, have about j concluded that there is only one course to pursue and that is to use the language of the President, to "give the people a! square deal." The President stands for efficiency in the public service, and the game of graft and political pull don't go. Only the other day United States District Attorney Hall of Oregon, although just recently reappointed upon the recommendation of the Oregon delegation in Congress, was summarily dismissed from the service for shielding Since President Roosevelt took a hand at investigating O o postal frauds and other unlawful actions on the part of gov ernment officials in other departments, the idea of securing! j Certain high government officials, and a leading' attorney from Chicago has been sent bv the government to Oregon to assist 111 unearthing the land frauds in which U.

There is only one danger which appears to Officials, us as apt to spring from these commendable ^investigations into the pub lic service. It is this: There are and always will be scrupulous politicians and it appears to us that many of them for the purpose of injuring a riyal will file charges un against honest men, and while the charges would be false they have theii effect on public sentiment and in stroy the good name which a man prizes more than all official honors which might be heaped upon him. charges may be filed ostensibly to benefit the service but real ly t< > bl ac kept h e reputatio n of some worthy official. al could vindicate himself, .shadow of lingering suspicion Irf frfe Wt nmâ which vindication cannot move; However^Tne mere fact that there may be an occa sional injustice done an honest official, is no reason for neglecting investigations. Let the good work go on and public service will in the end be distinguishable and thing apart from graft and corruption, many instances de And these It re some After the two democratic members of the lower house of our legislature went to the trouble of holding a caucus and ' se \ e , ( : t ^ n o a attaches, it was real mean of the re publican majority not to give the two democrats an oppor tunity to vote in open session upon those whom thev had I selected to fill the various offices.
