'There arc claimants, it If true.-They have filed for Uio nomination. They are conducting what they call campaigns. They think they are running for senator. But their pretensions are lyt sight of in the lustre of the service rendered by one Oregon citizen to whom was committed the solorrrn responsi bility of a senatorship by the people of Oregon, He is the senator who secured passage of some of thcv weightiest legislation in the history cf the republic. : It Is doubtful if any legislative act. In tho measure of the service it rendered in a war crisis, ranks with.,, the selective drart act. It Is without 'critics and without scandal. It was l 'Vie crucial measure that gave confidence to the people and through' 'that confidence raised the morale of tho nation for .he gr;cat conflict wtyh ; thc central powers. tin t r f .i f riHAiilL!nna -neaa rjiinri t ll n f every community knew that every other community was doing its full duty In sending men Into the army. -The Justice jind impartiality of its requirements were so manifest that lh faith of every citizen in the purposes of the national leadership on the great business then in hand was complete, and in Its completeness tho whole people became one, united and Inseparable. ' The result was the mightiest military movement known to history. It is a measure that solved one of the greatest problems of America in the ' war. Its conception and its passage raised an Oregon senator to a fore-most position in the statesmanship . of the country. ' - That is one reason why there Is, practically speaking, but one candi- date lor United Statea senator In Ore- "gon. The service rendered by Senator Chamberlain 'reduces all other candidacies into mere pretensions. At, the end of the ninth day regla-- tration at the Oregon Agricultural college totaled 2894. Multnomah county. was represented by 501 students. There Is representation from very county In the state, many ; showing an attendance above 100. -The technical training of so many .' young men and women in agricul ture, home economics, engineering . and other fields is powerfully stim ulatlng the productive capacity of ithe tUe. Nx AS A FRE GIFT VfHY should the state of Oregon W present the federal government ' With 30,000 acres of valuable agricul tural. land T Especially, why should the money valua of such land be withheld from aa already depleted slate school fund and be presented as a free gift to the United States? , , There will be such a proposal. on the November ballot It is known as the Roosevelt bird refuge bill, f The state engineer has reported ad versely on the plan. The attorney general has reported ' against it. 'Tfi state land board has reported against It. " The state engineers' association in '- vesligated and has, through a vom t Ejr J i SCRAPPED? - SPEAKING of the league at Des Moines yesterday Senator Harding said, Is not interpretation but' rejection that I anj seeking." , "Rejection" Is what Borah demands.- It is What Hiram demands. It is what Brandegee and Moses and Knox demand.,. After that speech Mr. Harding, if elected, would insist that the verdict at the polls was a verdict against the League of Nations and likewise against the treaty of which the league is an indissoluble part. So the isstte is definite and clear. Even reservations will not, if he is elected, be considered by Mflr Harding. Thu, with reference to the treaty and league,, in his Des Moines speech he said. "What is the use of talking about something already scrapped." That is to say, the treaty, in the Harding mind, is "already scrapped." That is exactly what Hiram said, and , Hiram Is Upmost ferocious bitterender of them all. Here, then, is the Issue: The bloodiest and deadliest war that ever was fought was won for. civilization. Out of the horrors and agonies and dead in that war came a moment when the nations determined to league together to prevent future wars. It was a moment of supreme Importance to mankind, for it -offered a turning point in that hideous period of 3400 years in human affairs in-which there had been but 224 years of peace, with all other years of the time devoted to bloodshed, slaughter and sacrifice. At Paris the best men in the greatest governments of the world met and framed an instrument through which it was planned to guarantee permanent peace. All the information that the earth afforded was assembled at that great conference, fn all the history of the world, no gathering of statesmen was so impressive. Th peoples of the earth en masse pleaded for the proposed great charter of peace. They had for 51 months been counting their dead. For 51 months the mothers throughout the world had been praying for the safety of their absent sons. They and the fathers of all lands had contemplated the bloody earth and they crowded in vast bodies im a mighty appeal to the statesmen at Paris to fashion an organization of nations that would bring a new cfa of arbitration and peace into the world. The Instrument was framed. Its machinery was made simple. It provided that disputes between nations in which international law was involved should be referred to an international court for settlement. All other disputes were to be referred to the League council to hear testimony and decide by arbitration, all decisions of the council to be by unanimous vote. a This was little, but it was-all. The rest of the provisions are matters of detail, or methods for carrying out the decisions of the arbitrators. Gradual disarmament of all nations was included as a means of taking away one of the great causes of war. A way to enforce the findings of the arbitrators fn case one of the disputing nations should refuse to abide by the findings, was included. This is done by all member natkns refusing to have anything to do with the orfending nation. It is called the economic boycott, and means that goods, or foods, or people or mails cannot pass from any member nation into or out of the offending state. About 40 nations accepted the plan. Though not yet fully organized the league has averted twojhreatened wars. The moral weight of such an overwhelming mass of nations makes it certain that, with the leadership of America, the league could become permanent and usher in the era of peace on earth that Jesus Christ came into the world to bring about. It was all as if, under the guidance of the Omnipotent, the world was to realize the preachments of the Is'azarcne as part compensation for -the tears and terrors of the terrible war. t But Mr. Harding says it is all "scrapped." We know now that fihe i,s electf-d America will throw the weight of her influence against the mighty work that has been done. If elected, Mr. "Harding will not only throw the weight of America against the present splendidly working league, but he says he will try to get up a private league of his own. He frankly and un-blushingly says that the hand of America will be turned against the noblest Instrument in all history, against the great dream of peace that was the theme and hope -.of the Savior of'lhc world, and against the great end for which the American doughboys fought and died. mittee, advised against the measure. The bill proposes to give 47,000 acres of land to the federal government to serve perpetually as a nesting place for birds. Thirty thousand acres of this land is good agricultural land that it is declared would, under Irrigation, be worth ffOO an acre. The people of Harney county are bitterly Opposed to- the plan because they say it takes 30,000 acres of land out of their field for development and to that extent holds back the growth of their county. They point out that, only 30 miles away, the reservoir to be formed by their irrigation program will supply a body of water almost as large as Malheur lake for all uses for bird nesting. They also insist that drainage must ultimately accompany irrigation and that the proposed bird reserve will deprive them of means for draining their reclamation system. Thirty thousand acres is a considerable body of land. Under irrigation, it would feed great many hungry people. It would furnish homes to a great many people who are now landless. Irrigated and sold into private ownership, it would also become tax able and help pay the cost of govern ment. f the bill passes, this large body valuable land will go to the federal government ind will never be repre sented on the tax rolls of Oregon. If the bill Is defeated, the land will continue to be a part of the heritage of Oregon school children through all future time; for ultimately it will be sold Into private ownership, homes will be built on it, the money will go into the state school fund and those who buy will pay taxes on the land perpetually. A New York Jury recently dis agreed over whether a man has a rlghv to tell his neighbor's wife to go to hell." There are beliefs and beliefs among men on this point as. is evidenced by the failure of the Jury to agree. WITHOUT WARNING TWO people are in the hospital, Painfull V inlnrp1 aa th pocult nf M 1 " V. V. O 14 V an automobile accident in which a driver of a truck failed to signal for a turn. An automobile, following crasned into the heavy vehicle, in juring the two passengers. Failure to signal is not a minor violation. Because of the freauent ne cessity for signaling, drivers may re gard one failure as a small matter. Butt may result in death. For that reasohcit is more than a minor viola tion of law and shbuld be punished as such. "v - It was made an offense because accidents resulted from failure to signal. What opportunity has a driver to know when another machine is to lurch out from the" curb directly in front, if there is no signal? How is he to know when an automobile is to come to a quick stop a few feet away when there is no signal? Hovv lis he to know when a car may turn iuu ins pam u mere is no signal? Every .railway, transcontinental or municipal, in the country has a system of signals. The railways maintain automatic signaling devices. -1 They use every means possible to inform the operator of one train or one car as to what may be expected of another train or another car. Otherwise r the toll on human life would be infinitely multiplied. The same principles arc involved in safely operating automobiles. A driver must be warned whenever pos sible, as to what another driver will do. And when every operator of a motor vehicle warns the others, accidents will be far less numerous. Newberry was right in spending all thct money to beat Henry Ford for senator. Late developments prove it. When Ford reduced the price of automobiles and accompanied it with a statement that he would not reduce wages he showed that he was unfit for a seat alongside Brandegee, Penrose and Lodge. Newberry cost a heap of money but he was worth the price to the senate oligarchy even if he Is now under sentence to two years in the pen. Didn't he furnish the vote that beat the treaty? NOT ENOUGH ANEW YORK husband laid down the following code regulating his duty to his wife: "My w'fe comes first, before everything and everybody and shall have my salary every week. "She shall be boss of the house, and shall have everything to say about home life, like pleasures and comforts; must have attention, such as outings and theatres, when k we can afford them. "No swearing or insults or rude treatment around the house. "No slobbering or lovemaking to other women around the house, or calling on or corresponding wiWi other women. "No argument or mentioning anything that has happened in the past, which must be forgotteq forever." In his will the husband also made "his beloved wife" sole heir to the family bungalow and to half the shares in a corporation of which he is president. In spite of the code declaring the wife to come first; depicting her as boss, and giving her the full salary, she is now suing the husband for divorce. It would seem that the requirements of successful husbanding are increasing. There is criticism among the partisan press overt, the conduct of the war by the Democratic administration. One might be led to believe that the kaiser is 'still on the throne and that America is under a German governor. TO FEED THE SHEEP t NOT long ago passengers passing through Southern Oregon noted great bands of sheep that seemed underfed and almost exhausted, tjieir appearance in strange contrast to the green virility of the countryside. The animals, it was explained, had been hurriedly brought from the far interior. Drouth had dried their pasture and threatened their very existence. A few days ago the heading or a news story from Montana announced tiat 1,000,000 cattle Tiad perished for lack of water and the pasture that water would have kept green. There is but one escape from the famine that pitiless drouth fastens upon the stock of the interior in bad seasons. That is irrigation. In the earlier days of the Northwest nearly all the irrigation attempted was incident to the preservation of livestock. The thought of John Clarke In tne valley of the Spokane In 1812, of the Hudson's Bay company along numerous rivers in the period from 1812 to 1837. of Dr. Marcus Whitman on the Walla Walla in 1837, and of others in the interior until 1869, whennd reclamation was Introduced commercially on the Xaches, a tributary of the Yakima,- was to use irrigation for the accumulation of feed. The practice? should return. The livestock men ought to join with the general movement for irrigation. It is possible by every-day bookkeeping to demonstrate how a certain investment in irrigation returns' a double profit from pounds of beef and mut ton. It Is not possible to apply water artificially to the upland ranges but it is possible and profitable to impound the waters of streams that flood in the spring and dwindle to a thread in summer, and by the measured watering of bottom lands produce the alfalfa that will keep the stock fat when the ranges are brown and withered.

A STATEMENT BY MR. M'ARTHl'R Portland. Oct. 7. To the Editor of The Journal Inasmuch as a lot of gratuitous Information relative to my record and stand on the question of national prohibition is being put forward by supporters of the Democratic-Prohibition candidate for representative in congress from the Third Oregon district, I wish to avail myself of this opportunity to set forth the facts in order that the people of the district may know the actual situation. During ihe campaign of 1918 I pledged myself to regard the vote of the people of this district on the state constitutional prohibition amendment as an instruction to me on the question of national prohibition. This- pledge was made in good faith and at a time when both the prohibitionists and antl-prohibitlonists were claiming the district. The voters, however, defeated the state constitutional prohibition amendment by the overwhelming majority of 9799 votes and. in keeping with my pledge. I voted against the national prohibition amendment when the same was acted upon by congress. Had the people of, this district voted otherwise. 1 would have voted otherwise in congress. I also opposed several other prohibition measures for reasons which were fully set forth rn the public prints when the votes were taken and which need no further comment from me at this time. The national prohibition amendment is now a part of the constitution of the United States, and the Volstead act is a part of the law of the land and as such should rigidly enforced. I have al ready voted against the repeal of the Volstead act (see Congressional Record, March 4, 1920, page 4154) and I shall continue to oppose any and all at tempts to weaken or emasculate either the law or the constitutional amend ment until the people of the Third Oregon district, speaking through the me dium of the ballot, shall direct me other wise. The initiative provision of the consti tution of Oregon affords the peoples of this state an ample field for the expression of their Views on any subject, but until the electorate of the Third Oregon district directs me otherwise, 1 shall continue to support the Integrity of ex isting prohibition laws and likewise the necessary appropriations for their en forcement. C. N. McArthur. HARDING AND GERMANY 'Portland, Oct. 4. To the Editor of The Journal Following is the body of a letter in the Oregonian of October 4, which demonstrates how some well meaning citizens are misled by the crooked, double-crossing methods of Wall street, which is backing Harding for president : "According to the Oregonian United States Attorney General Palmer has ordered that all firearms taken from alien enemies during the war be4 now returned to them. Since the department of justice has decided that we are still at war with Germany, it would appear that our friend Palmer is furnishing firearms to our German enemies in this country. Is it not treason to give aid to the enemy in time of war? Perhaps Mr. Palmer does not know this." The letter is signed "American." A few senators blocked the peace treaty, thereby making ' technical , enemies of Germany and America. Now we have the spectacle of one of these senators being supported by these technical enemies for president. We read, October 3, in a news article from Berlin papers : "Von Bernstorff picks Senator Harding; separate peace expected." Von Bernstorff mingles his appeal with that of Senator Harding for the votes of those Americans who were once Germans, whom Harding and his followers at the same time class as enemies and only made so with the help of Senator Harding himself. The situation is such that Harding backers cannot throw mud without hitting one another. H. D. Northrop. CHALLENGES MR. LATOURETTE Salem, Oct. 1. To the Editor of The Journal Evidently Assistant City Attorney Latourette of Portland possesses more than the necessary ability to understand the English language, or else he is trying to fool someone. If correct- My reported in The Journal under the heading "Anti-Vaccination Bill Defies Law, Says Latourette," he is either try ing to make sentiment against the proposed amendment to the constitution by misstating the facts, or he is unable to understand plain English. The first statement reported is, "The bill, which appears as a constitutional amendment, was said to prevent not only compulsory vaccination, but to allow 'venereal diseases and all contagious diseases, such as smallpox and diphtheria, to go unchecked.' " That this statement is untrue is clearly shown by a reading of the proposed amendment, which is given below, and which says not one word about quarantining or segregating persons suffering with contagious . disease. Again, "The measure nullifies all laws which Portland's health department might invoke to place women in the Cedars when suffering from venereal disease." This statement is on a par with the first and receives the same answer. There is not one word in the. amendment that will affect such cases. Neither does the said amendment touch cases where men, as well as women, may be Infected with a malignant communicable disease and, under certain condl- tions. be sent to the penitentiary, as pro- j vided by section 31 of the present Oregon health laws. The-proposed amendment says, In full: "Article 15 of the constitution of the state of Oregon is hereby amended by adding thereto the following section, which shall be designated as section 9, and which shall read as follows: "Sec. 9 No form of vaccination. Inoculation or other medication shall be made a condition in this state for admission to, or attendance in,, any public school, college, university or other educational Institution, or for the employment of any person In any capacity, or for the exercise of any right, the performance of any dy, or the enjoyment of any privilege. "AU lOt'VlgiorA of the constitution and laws of this state and of the charters and ordinances of all cities, towns, municipalities or counties therein, in conflict with this amendment, are hereby repealed." Now, what is to be repealed? The laws and ordinances in conflict with the amendment, and nothing more. Not one word about sending women to the Cedars or other persons to the penitentiary. If those opposed to the proposed amendment wish to discuss this question on Its merits, let them meet in joint discussion those who favor the amendment. If Mr. Latourette or anyone whom he may select will enter into such a discussion I will agree to find a citizen of Oregon to meet him. Let such a discussion take place in the Portland Auditorium, and be reported in the dally papers. A. Slaughter. SCHOOL. BOOK WASTE Portland, Oct. 1. To the Kditor of The Journal I often wonder if it has ever occurred to school boards or state leglators that the waste in the school boM problem must be very great. Year after year books are purchased, and year after year books, are scrapped. Pupils use books one term, half a term or two terms, and then they are waste, and you find them either in the scrap heap or in a second-hand store. Wouldn't it be better and much less of a burden on the citizen if the state were to supply free text books, which could be used until they were absolutely worn out? With proper care they would serve anywhere from 10 to A dozen pupils, perhaps more than this. If it were not such a serious matter, the way the school book question is handled would be funny. Blackboards are supplied, desks are suppfted, laboratory equipment Is supplied, and these articles are used year after year, but wb.en it comes to school books, in those statesin which free text books are not being used we find the middleman again, or two middlemen, each getting a profit, and then we find hundreds of thousands of dollars going into the scrap heap in the way of text books every year. This is from one who has been purchasing books. William Hewett. Curious Bits, of Information for the Curio s Gleaned From Curious Places A clock, composed entirely of growing plants and flowers, has been made by a botanist. The dial of this clock, which is to be seen in a. glass house at the botanical gardens just outside Paris, is simply a large, circular flower bed with 12 divisions, one for each hour of day light. In each division a certain plant is growing, and so precisely has. the se lection of suitable plants been made that it is possible to tell the time of day by the opening of any one flower. The plants are arranged in the following order: Rose, heliotrope, water lily, hyacinth, convolvulus, geranium, mignonette, carnation, cactus, lilac, pansy, violet. In Beazil there is a variety of magnolia which, for a few weeks in the year, opens and closes at the same hour every day, regardless of both light and temperature. Certain of the natives, who know neither clocks nor watches. .invariably gauge .the time by this flower. Olden. Oregon State Immigration Board Did Effective Work in the .Early "70s. In 1869 a board of statistics. Immigration and labor exchange was formed at Portland with the object of promoting the increased settlement of the country and furnishing immigrants with employment. ( The board consisted of 10 men, who managed the business and employed agents. It was sustained hy private subscriptions. In 1872 E. L. Applegate was appointed a commissioner of immigration by the legislature. At the following session, in 1874, the state board of immigration was created. It consisted of" five members, who received no com pensation, rne legislature failed to make an appropriation for the board. The work was carried on by money mainly subscribed by Portland business firms. The results of the board's ef forts were shown In the immigration of 187, wtuco was nearly 12,000.- ONB SWIFT KICK Copyright, IS'.'O. hr Tha Tr COMMENT AND SMALL CHANGE Pick your own fruit and save money.

"There is a very good showing of purebreds here,"- he said. "Oregon is just beginning to awaken to what the dairy Industry means to our state. Our Dairymen's Cooperative league has 2048 members in Oregon and in Clarke county, Washington. The average number of cows owned by members of our league is It. This means that our members are milking 28,872 cows. This means that 8210,000,000 is invested in the farms, dairy cows, barns and equipment of the dairy Industry of Oregon. The old hit or miss days have gone by, and today we have largely eliminated the non-producer and the star boarder from our dairy herds. The public also. appreciates more highly than in the past the value of milk as a food and the need of Insisting on milk from tested cows. Large as the dairy industry is now, we are bound to see great expansion in it during the next few years.
