to be pot op to the next session of the
legislature. This was a notable- year
! for such extravagance and unfortu
nately the legislature had a white
wash brush out for every official
charged with poor business methods.
It was whitewash from start to finish
and the legislature as' a whole was a
nest of rabbits afraid to take a stand
and draw officials up with a Jerk.
Therefore, the eyes of the taxpay
ing public are now on Governor West
in the hope that he may ue his veto
powers on Increased , expenses in
such a way that a great deal of the
last session's work will be undone.

THfi GOTEE J J 'ITS BOCNDEN DUTY
There never Iras a time in Oregon
when the vett J power . of a" Governor
was; so e8senut at present and It
is his' duty to vi that veto on a large
number of bill j passed by the recent
legislature. 1 nil ease In taxes in this
state Is so, ij-at that It threatens
the very coma.jtclal foundation. One
of the drawlji ks to obtaining new
sutler's Is hig ;. taxation. The first
thing asked b) a man who contem
plates, investment in a strange etate
is regarding tax Jevy, and with
conditions in Oregon as they are to
day it is a safeuess that many good
prospective ;.:iti'!ens will pass the
etate by becaua( of taxation.

WATCH LA GRANDE THIS TEAS
The Baker Herald, under Its new
management is making the UBual
fight for home and urging everyone
to line up and make Baker a bigger
and better place to live in. This line
of i work Is always commendable end
La Grande rejoices to know that Bak
er keeps pegging away. But we are al
so mindful of the fact that La Grande
is gradually passing Baker on the
commercial highway and this year
promises to settle the question for all
time to come as to which city is to
be the Spokane of Eastern Oregon.

Senator Pierece recently returned
from a business trip to California.
When asked how he liked the country,
he said: "Oh. that stat; is one great
big playground. I like to play a little
bit and while I play I should like
to be there. But as a steady diet give
me the Northwest where we have a
snowstorm occasionally and a little
wind to break the monotony." This was
very well said for the most energetic
man on earth would become a drone
In a place where flowers bloom con
tinually and the scent of orangi; blos
soms was ever oresent.
Portland is talking, of spring while
La Grande has several inches of snow
and indications of more to come.
That is not very strange when you
consjder the fact that over on the
Grande Bonde riv r there is a section
.here spring remains the whole year
round and settlers grow tobacco and
cotton at will. Great is this Oregon
state, and the most fastidious can
find the climate of his choice.
It Is but natural for the railroads
to curtail expenses. That was evident
when the Interstate Commerce Com
mission decided against th? transpor
tation lines. But perhaps this will
op:n the great railroad question for
re-nijustment. and while the time of
re-adjusting may bring some calamity
things may be much better afterward
both for th? companies and for the
people.

THE GOLD WAS THERE.
But Mark Twain Missed It by Just
One Pail of Watr. j
With Steve Gillis, a printer of whom
he was fond, Mark Twain went up
Into Calaveras county to a cabin on)
Jackass bill, where Steve's brother I
Jim. a lovable. DicturefinilA chancier 1
(the -Truthful James",of Bret Harfe),
owned mining claims. Mark decided
to spend his vacation in pocket min
ing and soon added that science to his
store of knowledge. It was a halcyon,
happy three months that he lingered
there. One day with Jim Gillis be
was following the specks of gold that
led to a pocket somewhere up the hill
when a chill, dreary rain set in, . Jim 1
was washing and Clemens was. carry-;
lng water. The "color" became better'
tA V. n - - - . .
lis, possessed with the mining passion,
would have gone on regardless of the
rain. Clemens, however, protested and
declared that each pair of water was
his last. Finally he said In his dellb-'
erate, drawling fashion:
"Jim, I won't carry any more water.
This work is too disagreeable. Let's ;
go to the house and wait till it clears
up," . .
Gillis hnd Just taken out a pan of
earth.
"Bring one more pail, Sam," he plead
ed. "I won't do it, Jim! Not a drop!
Not If I knew there was a million
dollars In that pan!" .
- They left the pan standing there and
went over to Angel's camp, which was
nearer than their own cabin. The
rain kept on, and they sat around the
grocery and barroom smoking and tell
ing stories to pass the time. .
Meanwhile the rain had; washed
away the top of the pan of earth, left
standing on the slope of Jackass hill
and exposed a handful of nhggets
pure gold. Two strangers hadvcome
Jong and, observing It, bad sat down
to watt until the thirty day claim
notice posted by Jim Gillis should ex
pire. They did not mind the ralnnot
with that gold in slght-and the min
ute the thirty days were up they fol
lowed the lead a few pans farther and
took oat $20,000 in all. It was a good
pocket Mark Twain missed It by one
pall of water. Chicago Post. '

Many persons must have noticed
when making application for fire in
surance that it is the practice of the
underwriter to examine certain maps
before he will fix theerate of premium
or accept a risk on the property of

ed off in diagrams of red and yellow
and other colors are always In evi
dence, sometimes bound securely in
dozens of large volumes, on other oc
casions laid conveniently in piles of
loose sheets for iiaudy reference. ,
Few persons realize, however, that
these maps contalu all the information
which the underwriter desires to know

As a matter of fact the details set
forth are most explicit. The map
maker has managed by colors,, charac
ters and signs to give a full description
of the construction, equipment and oc
cupation of the building, everything
which over fifty years of this sort of
surveying has proved to be of any pos
sible interest to the insurance man. It
is so complete, for Instance, that au

form a good idea of the character of a
risk situated In some town In Missouri
or California, or, vice versa, agents in
towns in these western states can like

In rounding curve the tendency
of the weight of a train is invariably
to shift to the outside wheels. To
counteract this tendency the outer rail
of a curve is raised on a higher level
than the inside, the elevation being
In an exact proportion to the sharp
ness of the curve as determined by the

rails of a curved track were of exactly
I the same elevation a train would not
dare round it at high speed.
