Think It Over. The supreme court decision on the Porto Rican tariff cases upsets the political dogma that the demo crats contended for so strenuously in the last campaign, and, natural ly, they are attacking with violent and impassioned criticism, prompt ed largely by partisan bias. But the two cases before the court were simple elemental propositions and the decisons follow the law and the precedent of more than a century of supreme court decisions. Two main cases were b.fore the court. In the first of these the ele mental question was, "Did the provisions of the Dingley law ap ply after the treaty with Spain ceding Porto Rico to the United 8tate?" The Dingley law was a tariff act levying a duty on goods coming in from a foreign port. The Court held that after the treaty with Spain the United States exer deed absolute control and sov ereignty over the Island of Porto Rioo and that the territory ceased to be foreign and that the duties 01 Dingley tariff were not collectable. Now, in the calm reason and judg ment of any thinking man there la nothing in the above to provoke the impassioned partisan criticism that political leaders are giviug voice to at this time. Nor is the second case any more removed from reason and judgment. In the Delima case the point at Issue was, 'Ts the Foraker act con stitutional?" The Poraker act was an act of congress for the col lection of duties on imports from Porto Rico. The critics say this act was unconstitutional because Section 8, Article 1 of the Constitu tion provides that "All duties shall he uniform throughout the United States." The court holds, how ever, that this provision only re ' quires, as its language states, uni formity between the states; that while Porto Rico is not territory foreign to the Uinted States it is, nevertheless, not yet a state, but is only "territory belonging to the United States," with reference to which Sec. 3, Article 4 provides: "Congress shall have power to dis pose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting * * * the territory * * * belonging to the United States. Hie only answer necessary to these criticisms is to ask that the reader carefully read and think over the foregoing and determine Whether it is not clear that the constitution makes one provision tor the states and another for the "territory belonging to the United States," as the court has just held. Asa matter of precedent Chief Justice Marshall, in delivering the unanimous opinion of the court in Sere vs. Pitot with reference to the territory acquired bv the Louisiana purchase, said: "The power of governing * * * a territory is the inevitable consequence of the right to acquire and hold territory. Could this position be contested? The Constitution declares that: "Congress shall have power to dis pose of and make needful rules and regulations for the territory * * * belonging to the United States." Accordingly we find congress possessing and exercising the abso lute and undisputed power of gov erning and legislating for the terri tory of Orleans. Congress has given them a 1< gislature an execu tive and a judiciary with such powers as it has been their will to assign to those departments re spectively." Thus we see that there is nothing new, nothing revolu tionary in the fact that congress has special and absolute power to gbvern acquired territory which is not given with reference to the spates. On Road to Prosperity. Prom the little community of elrose, Idaho, reports come that the people are in a prosperous con ition. The section is a new one, lud farming is the chief occupa tion. On almost every quarter section, it appears, a nice little orchard is coming into bearing and all the farmers have an abundance of berries. It goes almost without saying that every farm house has its chickens, Us cows, its little vegetable patch. Such a commun ity cannot help but thrive. It is a help to every new settler who homes into the section. With their own meat, flour, vegetables, hggs, butter and mile produced on 3 iome places, the expenses of the kiltful Melrose farmer are incon iderable. And it is imperative that they be industrious, ftp* the possession of so many adjuncts to country life is not had by the idler. The owner must care for his stock, for his berry patch and his orchard. If he were not industrious when lie began he soon got the habtt, and prosperity in other farm ven tures was almost certain to follow. The Inland Empire is becoming thickly studded with communities like that at Melrose. They are the life blood of the states for they 4re all producers, and most of them are exporters of their surplus crop. —Spokesman Review. Forcing the Issue. More cars are needed to carry Lewiston valley fruits to market. More cars will be needed to carry the immense grain crop of the Clearwater country to market. The carrying trade of the country is rapidly increasing. More acres ftre being planted to fruits and gardens, and these are coming now into bearing. Ten per cent more for the wheat acreage and 100 per <ent for the flax acreage with promise of a great yield in each of these cereals makes the problem of transportation an important one. The congressional committee will lake cognizance of it in consider ing the importance of an open fiver to the sea. The railroads t rill take cognizance of it in the evelopment of their trunk and branch lines, Here is the key to (he situation. The growing traffic I if the Clearwater country will orce the transportation question to in issue. Meanwhile the people will continue to cultivate and de yelp the resources of the country 4nd pass up the problem of trans portation to the railroads in the form of a tonnage too great to be bandied except by nature's own :hannels along the lines of least resistance. The news of the proceedings held by the republican state cen ral committee indicates that the lenatorial question is already forcing itself to the front in the conduct of party affairs. The Trlucr is of the opinion a better political maxim would be, "First catch your hare." The premature forcing of the senatorial question will stir up a partisan feeling that will be detrimental to republican success in the ejections. The re publicans need to prepare for the next campaign without schism or divisiou passion or prejudice. When we have won at the polls then spring senatorial aspirants. No combination of railroads working on a "community of in terests" can long afford to overlook the rapidly developing Clearwater country. I» will become a matter of personal interest with them to keep pace with the advancing in terests here. The wealth of the fields and forests and mines will not suffer long for lack of transpor tation facilities. The war between tbe cattle men and sheep men seems to be an irre pressable conflict.
