Phone Main 82. WONDERFUL 8HOWTN0I OF THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC. IN its annual roport the Interstate Commerce commission Btates in comment ing on railroad accldontH, that moat of them are due to carlossnesa of train men for which incompetence on the part of the higher officials, is in a groat measure, rosjionslblo, and this stptpmont seems to be borne out by the showing mado by the Southern Pacific and the Pennsylvania roads. During the year 1913 the Pennsylvania carriod 111,000,000 passengers without the loss of a single life. This is truly a splendid showing but it is surpassed by our own road, the Southern Pacific. This system carried during the year, according to it yearly reports, 1 62,511, 500 passengers nd not a single death charged to it. When put in anothor form the record is evon more credit able. The 182,511,P00 passengers carried, would equal the carrying of 7,235,088, 703 passengers ono milo, or one passenger that number of miles. The figures are indeed stupondous, and ono cannot grasp thorn just as fig ures. As an illustration of what these figures mean, the carrying of those passengers this distance, would equal carrying ono passengor 89 round trips to the sun and 125 round trips to the moon In addition. It would equal the carry ing of 30,101) passongors to the moon, or running 30 excursion trains to our satellite, each carrying 500 passengers and then bringing thorn home again. It would equal carrying 7D3 passongors around the world every day In tho yror. It would moan tho translating of th0 entire population of Port land to Sbu Francisco every ton days. When it is considered that this vnst work was accomplished without the loss of the lifo of a singlo passenger, and that during tho same timo, and in performing this nitno sorvico but 0 of the 0000 employes of tho road wore killed, tho showing is imlcod a wonderful ono, and if tho comments of the In terstate Commerce commissioners aro oororct, this magnificent showing was made possible by the computonco and carefulness of the officials of the road. The Southern Pacific, while giving splendid service, hits novor, liko some of the eastern roads, gone spocdmad. Its manngors and operating officials have recognized the fact that it is bettor to bo a littlo longer delivering a passenger and get him to his destination alive than to get him there in shorter time but only to bo delivered to tho coroner or the undertaker. The rule of tho company has alwnys boon "Safety First," and this doc trine has boon unremittingly impressed on all the company employes. Tho im plicit obediouce of these orders by the employes and tho fact that tho man agement insisted ou this rulo of "safety first" is alono responsible for this romnrkablo showing, and Btamps those handling tho road as safe and sane railroad men. Wo are pleased to know that a western road, ono with stupendous mountains, and the most dnngerous country in the United States to travorse, has set the pace for all tho roads In Undo Sam's domain. THE BOSS WHO WASN'T BOSS. ONCE upon a time, runs a modern foible, a youth about to tmbark on the sea of matrimony wont to his father and said: "Father, who should bo boss, I or my wifof " Tho old man smiled and said: Here aro on hundred hens and a team of horscH. Hitch up tho horses, put the hens into tho wagon, and wherever you find a man and his wife dwelling stop and make Inquiries as to who Is tho boss. "Whover you find a woman running things lcavo a hen. If you come to a place where a man is in control, give him ono of tho horses." After ninety uino hens had been disposed of ho came to a house and made the usual inquiry. "I'm boss o' this farm," snld the man. So tho wife was called and affirmed her husband's assertion. "Take whichever horse you want," was the boy's reply. So tho husband replied: "I'll take the bay." But the wifo did not liko the bay homo and called her husband aside and talked to him. Ho returned and said: "I believe I'll take tho gray horse," "Nut much," said tho young man. "You get a hen." CONDITIONS WB MUST SOON MEET. THR opening of tho Panama canal to which the wholo const Is looking for ward with so much ploasitrnblo anticipation and with such fond hope, has, liko everything else, Its other aide. Wo aro-all expecting great things when this event is accomplished and the ships of tho world can land the Kuropean Immigration at our doors. Wo are expecting much that is good snd wo aro closing our eye" to much that may bo bad. That the roast needs millions of men to accomplish its fullest development cannot bo gainsaid, but at the same time It must have more than men, for it must have employment for them. Deports have been received from Kurope by govern ment nuthorltle that thousands of agents of steamship eempsuies in Italy, flrecce, Austria, liussia, Turkey and the Balkan states have been and are still sotllng tickets on the installment plan for transportation direct to the Pacific coast, and that those people will come by the thousands as soon as tho canal Is oxn, and steamers running. It 1 said the steamship companies require the intending immigrant to pay their agent a total of S4. Of this amount, 2tl Is charge,! fur transpor tation, 3 is given the agent, and W, which the immigrant must have in order to land, is handed back to him Ivforo landing at the port of entry. Of the thousands expected to come, it will be seen that the larger part, In fart nearly all will bo of a class that Is unable to go to work for itself. Few of them will have the means to purchase land or to go in any business for themselves. Yet that is tho dns the country needs. For tho present it is the only class It needs, other than that that has money to start manufacturing Industrie. Without the latter them Is going to be hard sledding for the F.uropcnn who arrives here practically penniless. W have too many of that class now, and we have the proof of It In the great number of unemployed, though we do not think that number is so largo as the noise being made about it would make one believe. Oregon and the northwest with the greatest water power in the world and the most easily controlled power too, is behind in factories. This largely because the markets are in tho east rather than the west. Tho far-seeing manufactuheh will take advantage of this situation and start factories on the const in a few years, for the reason that he will then be able to get here what is now impossible, the very cheapest Ir.bor. Until this is done there is not a pleasant outlook for the coast in the opening of the canal, for it moans an influx of labor that will tax our utmost endeavor to find em- - ployment for. Oregon has millions of acres of uncleared lands, that are of course non productive, and the opening up of these will go a long ways toward the sol ution of the labor problem that we will be called on to face. There will be au abundance of cheap labor for a while, and those with uncleared lands will do well for 'thomselves, and also for the whole state if they will begin now to ar range' to take advantage of this cheap labor, to put the waste lands in shape to produce. It would be a great thing for tho state if some kind of arrangement could be made by which these coming immigrants could be helped to get hold of small tracts of land, and assisted until they could get the land in shape to support them. It would prove an important factor in the development of the state, and it would go far towards rolieving what gives promise of being intolerable conditions. What could we do towards absorbing 100,000 or even 50,000 people drop pud among us in a single season, none of whom had money enough to buy lands or go into business of any kind? What could we do with an army of this kind able and willing to work, and with no work for themf The question facing the northwest now is not getting people here, but pro viding something for them to do when they get here. The opening of the Panama canal will bring plenty of people, what are we going to do with thorn? If there could be a united movement by which a corporation could be formed for distributing tliis labor, gotting it at work on now idle lands and Harrying it until it was self supporting, it would go a long wayys toward preventing a bad situation that will result in an unenviable reputation for the stato. Tho state now has all the unskilled labor it can care for, and from recent indications more; what will be the result when we have countless thousands added to the present army of unemployed! j LAPP & BUSH, Bankers i rStANIAOTl A CIXXJAL BANKINd BUHDtliS. sUTlTT DE POSIT BOXES.
