Thorp is a misconception about the Crater Lake road case, Mr, McMahan is not the man behind the I'tigation against that enterprise. Ho is only a skillful pleader of constitutional law for men who fight paying taxes, , UGW Wlllamotto valley men who have the "injunction habit" aro bringing the suit, Thoy cannot Ijear to think that Oregon should do some thing on strictly progressive lines. That Oregon should dovolop a great natural wonder like Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, or Yosomito surpasses thoir comprehension, The constitution among friends of high caste is made to stand for "any old thing." But when it comes to putting Oregon in the center of the stag? of Progress, tllG srand old charter must bo invoked, audit's "Keep Oregon off the spotlgiht or we wrll be discov ered." Wo can build wagon bridgos on tho Snako river, Wo can buy right of way for a canal to help Uncle Sam around tho dalles of the Columbia, Wo can build wagon roads and portage railroads galore when the moon Is in the right poFtical quarter. We can defend these robberies of tho taxpayer which are entirely outside of tho jurisdiction of the state, What is the federal government for if not to open a groat natural in erstato waterway like tho Columbia river? But to invoke tho constitution for a great movement to develop Oregon raises every bristle on the back of the Salem hop. The apostlos of the injunction habit are not friends of Salem. "The same stripe of wisdom puts members of the legisla ture on ho back for killing off the normal schools, They board up the windows of normal schools and put four institutions out of commission to make enemies for Salem. Warfare on the Crater Lake road project embitters all Southern Oregon against Marion county, Portland backs the Crater Lake project and makes friends io build up a great city. o HAS DEVELOPED INTO A STALWART HAMILTONIAN. The Oregonlan has developed into the very antithesis of popular sovereignty, It is for the present an exponent of ultra Hamiltonianism in political doctrines. t does not believe the people are capable of anything but to be led by all-wise political leaders, The Oregonian itself would hot be above selecting those 'leaders. The forest reserves were established to keep municipal water supplies forever pure, .-JThe Bull Run water supply of Portland is in the reserve ana1, cannot be contaminated by sawmills, logging timber, mining ofattle or sheep ranges, If a,t any time there should come to a mountain water fji from the forest reserve any pollution, all the power of the federal government can be invoked to remove the cause. Hence the source of water supply for the state capital and the state institutions must be in the forest reserve, Some will argde, the cost of laying a pipe line to the forest reserve is too great, , It is not yet Known what it will cost, but lot us suppose it-will cost a million dollars to install mountam water in Sa lem. The state is now paying out about $25,000 a year for water suppi; for its Institutions, That inccme alone will pay five per cent interest on five hundred thousand dollars of bonds. The Wafer ratfiS r.np.r.p.r hv ihlc rltv. If It nume tho ntant. will easily pay interest on as much more bonds, The taxpayers will not pav one dollar additional taxes to bring in mountain water, Water users at Salem will get better water and pay less for it than at present. We can make no mistake on this matter if we go to an unpollutable source, The forest reserve is under the absolute jurisdiction of the federal government, whose especial duty it is to keep the water supply uncontaminated. We run no risk whatever In going to the same source that Portland goes to for its Bull Run water supply, .The Iowa picnic held last week on Fairmount Hill, about 1000 people from all parts of the city, adoptod the follewing: "Resolved, That we approve of all the steps tak- en tp furnish the capital city with mountain water at the earliest possible date and we favor tho ac quisition at a reasonable price of a public water system, to, trie" end that the people shall have an unpo uted water supply under municipal owner ship," o : THE MEN PUSHNG CRATER LAKE CASE NOT FRENDS OF SALEM. It opposes the direct primary, direct legislation, and direct election of senators, Hence its flying skyward against the manifestations of popular reforms in Oregon. While it helped fasten those reforms UDon the oeonle. it now demands that they be deprived of their-benefits, Mr, Scott himself was chairman of the executive commit tee that under the national flag seduced the people to enaot the direct primary law, That served his then political purposes, but the workings of the alw have not been satisfactory, Two United States Senators have been chosen who rep resent ideas of popular sovereignty and people's rule. They are even committed to the parcels post heresy, and other vain and vicious popular imaginations, For the first time in Oregon political history there are two senators In Washington not subject to the beck and call of the plutes. Come to think about if, what an outrage it would be if the mail carts no longer ran about empty but became self-sup- pomng, Wilf the people abandon the popular reforms they have secured in Oregon under the operation of the initiative and referendum? Thoy ought to do it as Mr, Scott has recanted, flopped a summersault, changed his coat, ripped his convictions inside out, and now opposes the popular measures he so shortly championed, The countrv needs a nreat bin dose of Harrvltonianism. . The trusts haven't got all they deserve out of the "safe guarded" constitution, The party delegates should be appointed by a highly cen tralized Hamiltonian executive committee in each county, The state convention that put the knife into Candidate oaKe was made up that way. The man who was made national committeeman from Oregon appointed himself and six others to represent a whole county, Hamiltonianism is to be put in the saddle with the reins safely wrapped and double-twisted in Editor Scott's iron hantJ between tho work of tho famous McAuloy Mission and that dono by Christ Church both In Now York City. "Tho Confession of n Rebellious wlfo" Is a remarkablo h.pian docu mont which will Interest every mar rlcd man and woman In this coun try. Other exceptional features will hold tho reader'B interest from cover to covor. Joys of the Permanent Camp. When a man Is back at work, and tho wheels of the business machlno aro grinding busily, and the telo- lihono bell Is buzzing most of tho day well, It Is a good thing, when the day's pressure lots up, to remam- bor tho camp, and tho vacation Just a quiet, ordlnayr vacation he had there. It refreshes him to recall tho mist and sunlight, of tho early morn Ing on tho river; the fragrance of tho balsamo and spruces: tho gllmpso ho caught, two or thrco times, of deer (thoy knew It was tho closed season and that they wero safo); tho groat luck ho had some days at trolling; yo3, oven the por cupines that rouced him up occas ionally at night; the camp-fires In tho evening, and llnally, how ho held up a limited train with a pocket electric tube, nt the little flag-station on tho way out. All through tho year ho hai dozens of pleasant memories to recall. He decides that that camp was tho best Investment ho over made. Juno Recreation. AMONG THE JULY MAGAZINES "PJvcrybodyW for July. Everybody remembers tho spec tacular visit of the kaiser to his ox- majc8ty "Abdul tho Damned," as Mr. Oladstono onco called the sultan Dut it has romalncd for E.
