A short ti ip through the high
ways cad byway of LaGrand"
will convince almost anyoue of
the fact that LaGrande has more
dgs to the square inch than any
otnei city lu the state. . In fact
there are altogether too many
dogs for t ie good of tbe com
munity. The city U entitled to
some foyulty on at least a part of
those several , hundred ; dogs
which mke night sleepless by
their everlasting yelping, and
the vegetables useless because of
their frequent irrigation. The
city couuoil by ordinance, and
the moyor by his mesiiee have
declared that dogs are to be tax
ed and now it only remains for
the 'authorities " to get busy.
Either get some dog tax or seme
dog scalps. ... ',"
Every voter in - this county
will want to vote for Tbeodoie
Roosevelt next November for
president. ' To do so without
putting yourself and all your
friends to a whole lot of extra and
uncalled for trouble, register be
tween now ana the 14th, when
the registration books close. '
Register tomorrow. ' When
election day comes you will want
to vote and if you have not reg
istered you will have all kinds
of trouble to do so. It is a duty
you owe to yourself and your
country to register aud vote.

The Atlanta Journal remarks
that the Democratic party may
be defeated if it doesn't stand for
Bryan and that it enrtainly will
be if it does. Practically that it
will be dashed if it does and
dashed if it doesn't.
The suggestion of the St. Louis
papers to "save your money and
visit the fair" is all right when
supplemented by the suggestion
to save enough to get out after
you get here. '
The Liquor Dealers' Associa
tion is figbtiug the local option
amendment through the labor
unions. Several of the unions
are permitting their names to be
used as cat's paws for the liquor
dealers. The cigarmakers and
ho bartenders are especially ac
tive in fighting the local option
amendment. The first princi
ple underlying all legitimate la
bor uniona is that of jtiatioe and
liberty and it is not believed that
any thinking workiugmen will
be influenced against this a
mendment by the narrow plea of
tbe liquor dealers of Portland.
The local option law gives to
each precinct the right to vote
on tbe liquor traflio. It simply
gives the voters of a certaiu dis
trict the right to choose their
home surroundings. It is no
thing more nor lees than the sa
cred principle of the majority
rule put into practice. No fair
miuded laboring man can deny
tbejustice ofthe marjority rule.
Where a majority of the people
should desire saloons, their votes
would so decide and where a cer
tain community happeued to be
opposed to the liquor traffic,
they would have a right to keep
it out. The present law gives
the three mombors of the county
court full authority to decide
this matter arbitrarily in any
and popular government, you
will vote for the local option a
mendment. Pendleton East Or-
