WEST NOT FAVORED.
Out of the 28, 941 persons on
Uncle Sam's payroll in Washing
ton, D..C, just 218 come from
the Pacific Northwest, which is
seven-tenth of one percent. Of
this number, 85 are credited to
Washington, 56 to Oregon, 53 to
Montana and 24 to Idaho. Cali
fornia alone has 264 federal jobs
at the capital. Notwithstanding
the fact that the places are sup
posed to be . apportioned on the
basis of population, New Hamp
shire, with one-third, the num
of residehls"found in Wash
ington State; has been able to
put 144 persons into different
government positions. "Mary
lana, with practically the same
population as the Evergreen
State, has obtained jobs for 2,
192. The total salary list of the
28,947 employes is" $31,541,225 a
year, of which residents of the
Northwestern States get $267,-
S51. This suggests the conclu
sion that either the people of
this part of the country are too
well employed at home to want
jobs at the federal capital, or
else our representatives in Con
gress have not been active
enough to get places for more
constituents. A report ' just
issued ; shows that the- total
number of persons employed by
the United States government in
all departments on July l last,
was 370,065, an increase of 64.
924 in two years.
There are also minor advan
tages such as, having "sidewalks
built; street improvements made
in the district; the city lighting
system extended; and mail de
livered at the . residence instead
of "on the corner." :
One argument against annexa
tion will no doubt be the cry of
increased taxation. It cannot be
denied but that taxes will be
higher, but not to the extent
that many suppose. ' .
Last year, through an error,
my property on College Hill was
assessed with city taxes. I
naturally objected and had the
mistake rectified. After taking
off the city tax, adding the
special road tax of the district
and paying a $3.00 poll tax, I
had saved just $1.20 by being
outside the city limits. I am
convinced that the matter of in
creased taxes is not very serious.
It is more than counterbalanced
by the advantages acquired.
. Yours respectfully,
. G. A. COVELL.
To Raise Cran
berries in City
(Continued from page one )
(Continued from page one )
To my mind this is the most
important phase of the question
to be decided next Saturday. Let
us vote for annexation; join with
the people of Job's addition in
getting a sewer that will be, a
credit to the city, "a benefit 'to
the territory it serves, and an
improvement that will increase
the value of every city lot in the
district at least twenty-five per
ture in the schpol yard. They
say it requires a boggy and
swampy place to raise cranber
ries successfully. I am sure
they Will find the school yard all
that they can desire tor a cran
berry swamp. I

For a while 1 he came pretty

Perhaps he thinks we dont like
his looks, but I have heard it
said that he is handsome. If he
does not come over here to see

him he is offending us.
The girls of the seventh, grade

some others wear dresses with

losing their belts, and one girl is

sured that the armory -could be
had Saturday morning. , This
seemed satisfactory. From thai;
time until a telephone message
from Mrs. Angell reached him at
Portland Friday evening, Direct
or Angell was not spoken to of
ficially in regard to the matter.
Individuals urged that the cadets
be given the armory Friday after

practice dance. The Social Com
imiiee, wmcn nrst passes on
matters of this sort, did not re
ommend it, and on inquiry stated
specifically that such a recom
mendation had not been made.
In this instance, ' as in all other
instances, wherein, the outlined
policy of procedure ia involved,
Mr. Angell held to' committee
ruling. But at no time was he
approached by. any one having
any right to speak officially. The
students could have had their
dance Saturday night, he says,
out the practice dance was cut
out. That the place of the dance
was changed and the rough house
stirred up, Director Angell attri
butes to one seekirier cheatf
popularity at the hands of the
student body." He has no word
of censure for the students, be
lieving them to have misunder
stood and been misled. ;
