Many people claim to believe that lawyers elected to the legislature indite laws and purpose- ly leave loopholes in order to create business for lawyers. The Monitor does not believe this. It may much better be accredited to the lack of intelligence on the part of our law- makers. Because a man has the ability to amass a fortune does not necessarily indicate that he can con- struct the English language under- standingly; because a man dresses in good taste, has a pleasing address and a "gift of gab" does not signify These are the only issue left is Bryan. The Bryan followers ca6 at least console them- selves that their leader talked years ago the way Roosevelt now does, and it may be a question whether Bryan in the opposition, as the English say, is not a greater power than he would be in the chair of the chief magistrate. The question then arises, to what party will the conservatives go? It might be a good idea for someone to start a party for the poor, down trodden trusts and money monkeys. The lumbermen of the Northwest are putting up a strong case against the proposed advance in freight rates of 10 cents per hundred weight to the East. The showing so far that he is intelligent. classes of men who have too often seems to be all in favor of their been sent to the legislature to enact 'contention that the railroads are not laws for the government of the pro, I justified from any point of view in ple--one becaus he 5as locally in-le:acting this additional tax on the fluential solely on account of tiisl lumber industry. But as the raft- wealth; the other because the pe0-:roads lave filed notice of their in- ple, who in the main desire to do right, mistook a pleasing address and a fluency of speech for intelli- .... genre. As to the law in question: Is it to be interpreted as it reads, or as some person may conceive to be the intent of :its author? Much complaint is made regarding Sec- tion 1887, Pierre's Code, which de- clares it to be unlawful for any per- son in this state to open a place of business on Sunday for the sale of goods of any kind, and in tile next tention to raise the rate, to take effect November ist, the lumbermen seem to be up against it. An appeal to the Interstate Commerce Coin- mission will mean a wait of many months before a decision can be had, and. iu the meantime irreparable damage will have been done. The )resent procedure is equivalent to lynchingan alleged culprit, and calmly trying him judicially after- wards. It is clearly shown that another step in railroad legislation not closely indicate the amount of support the people would give it. The 0regonian accordingly suggests the application of the initiative, which would better reveal the extent the )eople would go to in building up the institution. It is very close to a pure democracy which Oregon lives under, and instead of finding it engaged ill schemes of confiscation for the indul- gence of a mob, we see it interested in promoting education.

It is intended especially for acute throat and lung diseases, such as coughs, colds and croup, and can al- ways be depended upon. It is pleasant and safe to take and is undoubtedly the best in the market for the purposes for which it is intended. Sold by E. A. Roberts, the druggist.

DRAFTS ISSUED ON ANY POINT IN TttE WORLD i OLYMPIA BAR] PETER SUHL, Propr. "-the Choicest of Vines,  Liquors and Cigars i RESTAURANT IN CONNECTION MEALS AT ALL HOURS g ROOMS,-0000c A : breath providesthat the law shall not apply to hotels except as relates to the" Sale of intoxicating liquors, an3 follows with a provision that thesection "shall not apply to drug stores, livery stables or undertak- ers." The law presumably intended to close all business houses on Sun- day, except such as might cause great inconvenience or detriment to the public at large. It is sometimes necessary that a man should travel on Sunday, where the livery stable ffers the ole means of locomotion The services of the undertaker are often imperative, and prescriptions frequently demand to be promptly compounded or a life sacrifced, on Sunday as well as any other day. If the law is "rigidly enforced no place of business can keep open for the sale of goods save those except- ed in Section 1887. A man con- ducting a business where he sells cigars, fruits; ice cream, confection- ery, etc., must remain closed, but a hotel or drug store may sell any- thing save intoxicating liquors. The intent of the author may have been perfectly just, but his law, if interpreted to the letter, is rankly unjust. It is not usually held that a person may read between the lines of a law and ascribe to it the unex- pressed intentions of the author, no matter how worthy or how essen- tial. Manifestly the law is one of the man)" examples of erratic con- struction, insomuch, as it does not convey the meaning ilitended by its autho ". i b'exi .e.u's presidential contest is fast shaping itself *ith both par- ties. The wonderful transformation of the Republican party under Roosevelt's leadership from a con- servative to a radical party, has knocked out all the calculations of the Democratic party. The Repub- li:ans l ave crowdedthe Democrats off of th;ir platform and have ab- sorbed  good share of the party in the doing of it. hi fact, it can be said that there is no Demo- cratic party, outside of the South, as the president has cut tke ground from:under'it. There is a Bryan party, and it will see to it that if Bryan is not nominated, the man who is will not be elected. Even the old, time-honored Democratic issue of the tariff has" been taken away by the Taft-Roosevelt pro- nunciamento for tariff revision. The is needed, and that is, requiring all railroads to not only file their pro- posed freight tariffs with the com- mission, but in addition to secure the consent of the commission be- fore the rate can become effective. It is safe to say that if the railroads carry out the proposed holdup, the cause of government ownership will receive a tremendous impetus in the states of Washington and Ore- gon. The council, by its action at the last meeting, evidently intends to put in a sewer system without any more delay than is absolutely neces- sary. This is a move in the right direction. The town is rapidly in-" creasing in population and every day that the installation of a sewer sys- tem is delayed increases the menace to the sanitary conditions of the ! town.

If the Japs will hold off till President Roosevelt's term expires, those who are anxious as to what he will do then might agitate his appointment as commander-in-chief of the army and navy, and give him the job of licking the Japs. i Some of the citizens of the town are asking the question how the coun- cil, in ordering the streets of Monroe graded, happened to go all around Ferry street, which is one of the prin: cipal down town streets of the town.

I saw Charley com- ing up on the run just behind four men who were walking arm in arm and taking up all the street. Finally Char- ley broke thru the line, and, grabbing me by the arm, bustled me into a door- way while the four men passed.
