Thone Main 82. WHO ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR HIGH TAXES? Our morning contemporary Thursday morning has this to say about taxes: There in a reason why taxation hn increased In the past twelve yearn. Those in eontrol have been politicians, elected by ami throujih the efforts of n clique. Member of the. clique had to be rewunled. Jobs had to be furnished. The taxpayers pnid the bills. A politician lives nt the expense of the public, and it can hardly bo expected that he will pay the bills for tho public. Here is a remarkable statement to come from a stand pat paper. The legislature that passed the bills and cre ated the larger part of the indebtedness of the state was almost unanimously of its politics. The state officials, with the exception of the governor alone, and the officers of Marion county are practically all of the same political faith. To whom then does our neighbor refer? The state officials are good square men, Governor West along with the others. Judge Bushey and the county commissioners are both capable and honest. So are the rest of the county officials. To whom then does our neighbor allude when it says: "Those in control have been politicians, elected and controlled by a clique."? To whom does it refer when it says: "Members of the clique ha.d to be rewarded, jobs had to be furnished. The tax payers oaid the bills."? Is this an attack on the state officials on account of state expenses, or on the county officials on account of the bills incurred in running the county? The legislature provided funds for running the state's business and it also provided that no deficiency can be created. How then can the state officials create jobs or make expenses not authorized by the legislature? They can't; hence, it is fair to infer the attack must be on the county officials. Few, if any, will believe the county is not conducted honestly, or that if any mistakes have been made they are other than such as are due to the fact that men are human, therefore are not perfect. The morning paper ought to be specific and not deal in generalities which are likely to prove injurious to those officials who are honest. A child's quarrel in which one tells the other "take your dishes and doll baby and go home. You can't play in our yard, slide on our cellar door, swing on our gate, scratch our pig's back or paddle in our rainwater barrel," is dignified and sensible compared to the actions of some grown folks angry over the present war. Saint Saens, the great French composer, says: "It is wrong for any Frenchman to listen to Wagner's music, just as it would be criminal to applaud a singer who had just injured one's mother." Still Germany is fighting France. The German musicians would boycott all French music because France is fighting Germany, and all Italian sons because Italy refused to stand in with Germany and Austria. Germany also hesitates about allowing Shakespeare's plays to be presented in her theatres since she is at war with Eng land. The whole matter is "silliness gone to seed." Dr. Brooks says dancing, and especially the new dances, is of great benefit, giving proper exercise and plenty of it. He asserts some of the new dances are "as .soothing to adults as rocking is to an infant." A couple of "fox trots" before breakfast, with a "Luluvado" for lunch and a "Maxixe" as a dinner settler, may be among the things prescribed instead of proscribed. When Grand ma does the "hesitation" and Birdie takes a two-step as an appetizer, materia mediea can hunt the shelf and the prescription clerk ditch his mortar and pestle and take up the study of window display ami the arrangement of face creams and complexion dope. A dispatch says: "Hon. II. A. Booth spoke to a big audience at I'rineville Wednesday night for three hours." Mr. Booth evidently forgets that he is endangering his chances for election. A few such rounds as that will not leave survivors enough to elect him. We are not belittlini? Mr. Booth's oratorical abilities, but simply suggesting that no audience can stand that sort of thing, survive and feel friendly toward any candidate who soaks them that way. An exchange editorially remarks that "a bachelor is a man w ho loves himself so much he does not need a wo man to help him."

Too often the electorate discharge this duty in an indifferent and nonchalent manner.. Under our system of government the courts really occupy first place. Every act of the legislature, the conduct of all civil offi cers in the discharge of their duties and the private rights of all citizens must in case of dispute be investigated and determined by the courts. How necessary therefore it becomes to have men of experience and judicial tempera ment preside in our courts. Book learning alone will never make a safe counsellor nor a wise judge. In addition to a knowledge of the books there should be added a fund of 1 l i rt , i ... general learning ana lniormauon supplemented by a wide eXDerience in human affairs Many excellent gentlemen are candidates for the four 1 i- it sh mimmK.A 1 1 1.1- 1 J J A. 1 iM1 1 i il octtuo uii me Bupieme uencii oi uns scat io De iiiiea at me approaching election. Without intending to be invidious we wish to say that among these many candidates Hon. William Galloway, of this city, is in our opinion well quali fied for the office of supreme judge.

It ought to be so. Judge Galloway's record upon the bench is creditable. Consider the great number of cases tried by him.

It is safe to say that no other circuit judge in Oregon has been called upon to decide so many of these cases. In all he has exhibited great good common sense and discharged his arduous duties efficiently and in an urbane and courteous manner. Here is a sample of the daily market report which came over the wire with the regular press report yester day: . ' , , . . Si'iittle, Wash., Oct. 22. Kl'KH Fr esh ranch, iH(a'iir frcHM eastern, XVfi 40c Orientals (1'hlnaj, Inc. . .) . I lilt tor l.ucul cubes, IHc; bricks, lljc; Oregon cubes, iv'fri .Hie, Chinese eggs and New Zealand butter seems to be cut ting very little figure in the Northwest markets, accord ing to these quotations, which were not censored by the Oregonian. One effect of the submission of so many things to the voters will be the voting down of many of them. The voter who has not had the time, or for that matter, the inclina tion, to wade through the mass of matter descriptive of their objects, which is generally told in language the av erage layman cannot understand, will satisfy his con science by making a cross in the no column. It is possible, perhaps probable, every one of the proposed measures will be beaten in this way. Governor West and R. A. Booth are to meet in Port land tonight for a joint discussion of Mr. Booth's fitness for the office of United States senator and also to go into the matter of his accumulating his present timber land holdings. The Oregonian has promised to print every thing either of them says that is pertinent to the subject, and to do this Sunday. It is rather an odd proceeding, to say the least, but it will perhaps furnish some interesting reading. A war correspondent estimates that only about ten per cent of the stories of atrocities in the warring coun tries are true. If his estimate is correct, it is high time we reform our so-called civilization or revert to barbarism.
