By the system known as direct legislation the.people showed that they distrusted legislatures as such, but that system has not worked well. The people have a right to de mand greater efficiency and less waste by legislature's—loss lust motion and less rash enactment of laws. Before a legislature takes up and enacts a new law imposing a tax or creating burdens affecting all the people such law should be asked for by some one besides those interested in putting it over. The old order of business, "pet itions and remonstrances" that was established as a regular feat ure of legislative business should be revived and no law passed un til petitions for it are on file. In the same way, having one or two professional lobbyists, gener ally publishers from some big city, make headquarters at the state house and take personal charge of the legislature is wrong. Americans should also rise above the petty practices of ne potism that manifests itself in taking members of their familie.. to the state capital and getting them fat sinecures during the ses sion. If this is to be a country with opportunity for all alike to get to the front, in peace times as well as war, and if politically we are all created free and equal, let our legislatures set a new pace. GOVERNMENT EM PROVES AND STRIKES One of the pleasures of being an employe of the government under public ownership plans is that strickes are forbidden. Director General McAdoo warns [the telegraphers that under gov ernment operation of telegraphs and telephone strikes must go. He says: "You are now w'ork ing for the government and no strike has ever, occurred against the government." (Except in shipyards, etc. ) It was impossible to announce a decision of the War Wage Board on the demands of the telegraph ers and so he asked them to wait. The theory that government employes cannot strike bas. n?>t been found true in other countries, as for instance England and France. President Wilson and Director McAdoo deserve commendation for reprimanding threatening strikers and the rule may be es tablished. It is a fact that postal employes and city, county and state and federal employes, or job-holders have never gone on strike. THE LUMBER INDUSTRY The future of the lumber in dustry looks exceedingly blight, western products especially, will be in great demand, thus adding largely to the prosperity of the Pacific northwest. For more than four years thc're has been a com plete cessation of building oper ations in all parts of the world, except the United States, and for about two years there have been ifter Permanent Prosperity Peace reigns over our land and we can again turn our at tention to the pursuits of peace and the enjoyments guar anteed us, one and all alike by our liberal and repre sentative government.

R. BUTLER, Jeweler no new construction or repairs in this conntry. Naturally, the demand for lum ber is going to be insistent. France and Belgium, wher for merly little lumber was used in building, will call for enormous quantities of it for hasty rehabil itation of their war-devasted re-1 gions. England and Italy also; will need lumber for rebuilding! and repairs. With conditions'as; they are in Russia it v, ill be nec essary for the United States to j meet this demand and the timber; resources of this country will be; stretched to the limit. Shipbuilding will continue for j a long time, and ample bottoms for over-seas transportation of our j forest products will be available. ; Thus, in the opinion of experi enced men, the lumbering indus- j try will make great strides dur- ; ing the next few' years. j j j ; j Jeff Say, a. —that he used to think he was getting more for his money by buying a big plug of ordinary to bacco, until he ran across Real Gravely.
