THE HAPPY MEDIUM OF JUSTICE.
The Supreme Court of Oregon is criticised for setting
aside a convction founded on purely circumstantial evidence,
In such cases conviction must be on such a complete
proof as to be beyond a reasonable doubt.
This is a right which any accused man has, to appeal
if he can show that there was reasonable doubt as to his
The state must convict a man fairly and fully or the
Supreme Court will set him free.
In cases of circumstantial evidence there must be a
plain, strong, direct chain of evidence,
There must be no "inference from an inference," no
drawing conclusions because somebody or some newspaper
thinks they ought to be drawn.
On the other hand the Supreme Court must stant out
against the other extreme ,
Special grand juries, specially selected trial juries, spe
cial pleading political trials, newspaper convictions must be
It is a well-known 'fact that probably any grand juror,
any trial juror, employed in some of the federal court trials
in Oregon was picked, packed, instructed, fixed for the sole
purpose of securing convictions.
Only jurors who would convict were wanted, or such as
"would fall in with the theory of guilt advocated in the news
papers. The charges, the accusations brought out before the
grand jury, even the testimony to be presented to the trial
jury, was all pbuilshed in advance and directed to secure .
Thus an atmosphere of conviction was built up irr ad
vance, of the trial which the accused could not escape,
''No fair trial was possible under such circumstances.
There was complete assumption of guilt from the start,
It Is against such outrage in the name of justice that a
Supreme Court should stand,
The happy medium is a cool deliberate administration
of justice pursued in the regular legal channels.
Newspaper convictions do not convict in the long run,
Special pleading and special practises do not advance
The Oregon Supreme Court has preserved a happy me
dium and has stood for the rights of citizens to have a fair
For this it has been censured in some quarters . 1
But for this it deserves to be upheld by the people re
gardless of party,
THE CITY OF
To build fine streets, fine houses, fine business build
ings, and fine pubic parks constitutes a city of good ddeds.
To maintain a good fire department, to provide a sewer
system, to furnish a good public lighting system, and a good
water system, entitles a city to be called the city of good
All these things are for the health, the convenience and
comfort of the people, and constitute this a city of good
If the city advances on these lines, property advances
In value, houses increase in comfort, the citizens improve in
health and longivity, and that constitutes the city of good
It is a remarkable fact that most of these things which
constitute a city of good deeds aro the work of the munici
pality, The city of good deeds is sometimes the result of the
work of individuals.
The Wilson park, the Bregman fountain, the Bush
drinking fountain, John Albert taking up the school children's
deposits in the Gilbert Brothers' bank, arc all good deeds.
The Mrs, E, M, Walte fountain that is still to be erected
was another addition to the book of good deeds ,
There have been cases of concerted giving, as to Willa
mette University, to the Y, M, C, A to the City Library ,etc,
But thero have not In fifty years been any larger public
gifts in the city of Salem ,
There is still room for our city to be further distinguish
ed as the city of good deeds.
There Is still room for men to distinguish themselves by
adding to the fame of the city of good deeds.-

That peppermint of a high grade
of quality and capable of producing
a standard grade of oil can be grown
successfully In Oregon for commer
cial purposes Is evidenced uy dem
onstrations mnde by the U. S. ex
periment station at Corvallls, tho re
sults of which aro set forth in a
bulletin by Prof. C. E. Bradloy,
chemist, of tho station, the text of
which is as follows:
"In May, 1908, tho Michigan ex
periment station shipped, at the re
quest of tho chemical department of
tho Oregon station, a quantity of well
bred peppermint roots for trial on
tho Oregon beaver dam lands. The
roots wore planted by Mr. S. C. Ink-
ley, of Banks, Washington County, on
a typical beaver dam soil whore the
plants made an excellent growth dur
ing tho past soason. A quantity or
this peppermint has just been tested
by us and a yield of AA of oil found
on tho greon plant. This is a good
average yiold, and, taken in con
sideration with tho excellent growth
of tho plant .Indicates that the cul
ture of peppermint would be success
ful on tho Oregon beavor dam soil.
"Three kinds of peppermint are
grown In tho United States, Black
Mint (Mentha piperita vulgaris),
American Mint (Montha piperita.),
and White Mint (Montha piperita of
ficinalis). Tho Black Mint Is hard-
lost, yields more oil and Is used
largoly by poppormint growers.
Whlto Mint yields a high grade,
much prized oil.
"Japan Is said to have first culti
vated tho poppormint plant for the
oil and tho records show it was
grown in this country before tho
Christian ora. Tho plant was also
early , cultivated in England and a
fine grado of oil, tho 'Mltcham' oil,
Is still produced thore. In 1S1 pep
permint was first grown In America

"In practice the plants are cut and
while green or partly dried are pack
ed Into wooded stills and subjected
to live steam. The oil, like all as
sontlal oils, is carried over with the
steam and after passing through cool
ing pipes collects on top of the con
donsed stteam. A good average yield
is about 35 pounds of oil per acre
though as high as 50 or 60 pounds
are sometimes obtained.
"It Is estimated that it costs from
?10 to $20 an acre to cultivate tho
mint and from 25 cents to 35 cents
Is the price paid for distilling the oil
at tho central distilling plants which
aro established In the peppermint
districts. The price realized on the
oil has varied from SO cents to ?5
por pound, with an average price of
probably ?2 per pound.
"During the past few years there
has been an over-production of tho
oil and the small growers have had
to sell at very low figures. Like va
rious farm products, there Is consid
erable fluctuation in price and no
surety of getting good returns from
every crop. It is evident, however,
from this experiment that a large
area of swamp land In our state is
especially adapted to the growth of

could bo obtained from what is, in
many cases, waste land."
