TRIUMPH OF THE PEOPLE. The second analysis of the vote In Oreem on the 19 Initiative and referendum measures by Eastern papars, especially the national week lies and magazines Much as Collin, the Outlook and others of that class. Is very favorable both to the oj-te.n and to the voting by the Oregon electorate. The first criticisms were mainly based on reports and comments in such hostile Oregon papers as the Oragonlan. Now that the Eastern -editors are reviewing the election from the official returns, ' the tune has changed from sneers to praise. The June election was not only a great triumph for the initiative and referendum but a greater one for democracy compared to repres3ii tatlve government. Any unbiased man who knows of the work of the legislatures will testify that the vote of the people showed more care ful study mid discrimination than theproduct turned out in state capitals. THE DENVER CONVENTION. And now the dispatches Bay nothing sensational will be allowed tc happen at the Danver convention. Mr. Bryan will be nominated on the first ballot, the platform will contain "moderately radical" trust-busting aiiti-lnjunctlon, railroad rate regulation, tariff revision planks, but nothing to scare anybody, not even the most timid Wall street gambler. It begins to loak as If the campaign would be one of men and no Issues. If the cut and dried program is adopted at Denver, the differ ence between the Republican and Democratic platforms will be the dU fereuce between twiddle Jum and twiddledee. However it Is safest to not forecast too much In politics. All the wiseacres or bo:h parties believed as late as April, 189G, the issue that full would bo the tariff and nothing but the tariff. Was It? If we remem her rightly the subject of free silver was sometimes mentioned during the summer and fall of 1896. So it is safest not to prophesy. Even if no "paramount issue" i; evolved, just wait and see the wonderful difference in the two 'platforms the party orator will discover along about next October. INDEPENDENCE DAY SPEECHES. rp r" r i The spread eagle Fourth of July speech is out of date. . The Americar people have outgrown childish things and no longer sit unblushing while their many virtues, as well as their ability to whip any two or thre effete European nations, are shouted into their ears by a red-faced, per spiring human windmill. That was the favorite Fourth of July recreatio during the thirties and forties of the last century that and drinking hard cider, ginger beer, and eating ginger cookies. -, Charles Dickens after lit first visit to the United States in the forties, caricatured in Martin Chun zlewlt, that national trait of bombast and self-praise, and aroused a atom -of Indignation and abuse. Liar was among the least of the epithets ap plied to him by American newspapers and orators: We see thlag 1 more clearly now and know that allowing for the usual Dickens exag goratlon, he told the truth. There wus a style of Fourth of July speech in use just before the period of bombast that It would be well to revive. Independence Da- orators during the first half-century meaning of the liberty that was won by the Continental army. Wha was self government and why? In those days the enemies of govern ment by the people were without, but It was clearly recognized by Je ! ferson, Madison and John Qulucy Adams that it was not the machlner; or form of government that was vital. They said If our represanta lives were corrupted by agents of the enemies of the Republic, we wouh cease to be self-governing. Today danger of corruption of our representatives by a foreign pow r or Is past, pr, so .remote as to ba unworthy of concern. It Is a notoriou f!!!?.V.h.0.?.er,.t.!,at l'resentatives in many Instances, perhaps a majority no longer represent the people, but some special Interest. If that is tru and It Is not even denied, wo.ild not a little more government by the peo pie and less . by "representatives," be correctlVe? We have tried I honHu Oregon and so far no man can trulUfully ay It has not worke well. '-, .. ' r What Is the true meaning of self-government? Is It a form or a substance? 1'orhaps those subjects would be appropriate for the prei out-day Fourth of July orators. .... ; . WHICH SHALL IT BE? The recent making-over of the News Record office Into as complete ly uuulpped and up-to-date printing office as is found in Eastern Or.gan represents the publishers' faith la Enterprise and Wallowa county.' Tin davits at hand when this grand country Is going to step Into Its own to the head of the column of proud counties in Eastern Oregon, wher our, rtspurcs of agriculture, live stcck. mining, timber and factory powe entitles us. If two linotype machines are required In Union county, tha has hut -10 per cent more people and less than one half the resources o Wallowa: cannot, the latter arford one llnotvpe? The answer to that I this; To do the.bou work, the best of workmen need the bet of IodIs Heretofore thousands of dollars worth of printing has been bought ever. ' year outside the county, not because of Inferior workmen at home, but because those workmen Jacke t the tools. The News Record has pro vided the tools, and Is prepared to do any work In the printing llu. that Is required. t has no fer of the financial result ir only the inoi heretofore sent, to Portland and elsewhere for printing. Is spent here ti the county. The quality of the work Is guaranteed equal to the be an : the prices right'. It Is simply a question of keeping the' dolars a home where we all get another chance at them, or kissing the goddess "on our' dollars goodbye forever and sending .them to Portland. NRWSI'APER Mnr li S, JK9M. New prl lieifiin April 30, 1!X7 JULY 2 of our national life dwelt upon the CHANGE OF COUNTY OFFICIALS. The la3t July change of ' county officers In Oregon .takcj place uexl Monday. Hereafter the biennial trana fer will be made on the first Monday In January following the elect! jn in November. Naturally the retiring office s." like a mere man at a wetlding,- cnid l.i for slight notice. All eyes are fixii upon tne new "powe.-s-that-be." Ho-v ever, in Wallowa county taere ar men leaving office who can look back with pride upon duty well pe. formed even if that performance ha: urought upon them moie or less po. ular disfavor. The whirligig of tim will right all that and they wl.l prob ably live to hear themsalves cltai as models for succeeding officials That good luck and prosperity ma, attend them In private walks of llf is certainly the wish of the majorit. of the people of this county. No less hearty or sincere are th wishes for the success In o.'Iice o the new officials. Honored by tlu confidence of their fellow cl.izsns. 1 is only reasonable to believe the will be true to the trust reposet 1 them, and work as diligently anl I' telllgently for the best Interests o the county as they would for thai own. The new court is certainly S3'tin, a good example by equipping t.iem selves at their own expense for tli most important task before thm building a court house at the least jost necessary' to provide for a itructure adapted to the nee s of the county. No town now-a-days enjoys rapid growth from, wholly natural causes. Transportation facilities, railroad i'ate3, arbitrary decisions of capi.ai o manufacture here or theie as it -villa, all are vital factors that Inter ere with the law of development In iccortlaiice with natural resauriies Over and above all, however. Is tue luality of citizenship. Are they alive or sleeping? Are they wl ling o sink personal gain by sacri i.-e of he town's Interest, for the broa lei lew of what Is best for all Is bes. .'or each In the long run. That spirit md organization accounts for much f the difference In the up-bul d n? jf towns. Youthful denial mate.i .usty manhood. Baseball Is the greatest sport in .he world. Forty millions of trous 3red Americans look eagerly' each nornlng for "the score." . It wlii ive always. Anti-betting laws wll jnly strengthen It, for touch basebali -vllh gambling and you spoil the ;ame for Its devotees. Youth and nanhood must have recreation. Base mil is the ideal recreation. Support .t liberally by business methodsut ;eep It clean from the taint of bet .lng and the people's pastime will pa. oack In pleasure, hea.th and tern ,)erance a hundredfold.
