Today Mrs. Marie DeWitt Snod'grass
who dUd Saturday, was laid to rest.
Many friends of years' standing turn
ed out to pay their last respects to
this good woman. Good woman we
say, yes, one of the best the world has
ever produced. Sha was an Oregon
ploneera woman who never worried
over the smaller things of life, She
belonged to that sturdy class of hu
manity which has mada homes In for
ests, conquered the wild of the weBt
and made deserts blossom as the rose.
Deceased was the moth-r of, 11 chil
dren, and this alone tells the story of
a sainted mother. , She was the wife
of W. J. Snodgass, who, when living,
was without doubt one of tha strong-
est characters In the west. He took
' part In all public matters and the po
sition he occupied on 'such questions
was frequently determined by, the
close" council of his life companion.
Mrs. Snodgrass spent her life occupy
ing the place of the good American
mother. There was little of the dra
matic In the nature,- always choosing
to do good without letting the world
know of It Her, children were her
Joy, and to their credit W Jt said, thy
made the closing' Vears of her life
tyery happy.
It Is but natural for the aped to
pass to the great beyond, but when a
plindld woman like Mrs. Snodgrass
Is called the entire community stops
and pays tribute to the merit that
long years of constant right-doing
;' Justifies. .!' ;l ''r :
'Accepting the verdict. of the Inter
state Commerce commission the rail
roads Of the west, have established a
stand that will not In any way r.act
to their detriment. Railroads corpora
tions are quite . different from what
they were a few years ago regarding
governmental ajCfairS.-: it has not bten
long , since railroads Went boldly be-1
fore the people and made fights fori
ertain officials with the full knowl-
?dpe they w re to receive a little the
best of the legislative deal. Not so any
more. Wiat little hand railroads take
'n politics is now done un&r the most
secret covr and with extreme caution.
So far as rates are concerned doubt
less the roads will see a smaller net
taming for a while, but not much at
that The general public Is not Koini
to continue enforcement of any mea
sure, that throws railroads into a re
ceiver's hands. We all saw what It
meant to have receivers for railroads
In 1890. and 1893, and there Is not an
Individual wh will welcome a return
of that unfortunate period.
But the people do demand a closer
relationship with the transportation
lines. There is a general feeling that
this Is . coming about and under the
most faorabU circumstances. Many
railroad companies openly admit that
rates need adjusting that in a great
many instances they know they are
charging too much and in some cases
too little. The great, problem seems
to ha ve been to find the expert that
could determine an equality of freight
rates. Th; Interstate Commerce com
mission Is making a trial of that Job.
Lut that commission Is composed of
men who are subject to error and
there must be several trials before
the rates are adjusted In a manner that
seems as near correct as possible.
The city of Union has settled its lo
cation for a high school by choosing
the site sel-icted by the school board,
namely the old court house. This has
oeen -a nasty mile ngnt ana now it is
sincerely hoped that harmony will
mark the future acts of the people
who populate one of the best loca
tions in the Grande Ronde valley.

"That decision of a Georgia court that
a man has no legal right to demand
that his wife perform household duties
may, unless overruled by a higher
court, have a potent Influence in en
couraging bachelorhood n that state.
In the case at Issue, the wife Insist
ed on following lines of business en
tirely outside the usual routine of wo
men's lives. The husband wanted his
meals cooked, his floors swept his
stockings darned, and other ordinary
household duties performed. The wife
refused to attrnd to such things.
The husband decided tq "have the
law on her." But the Judge decided
that the law wa "on" the man. The
If arned court held that the woman was
under no legal obligations to perform
the, duties demanded and that she was
at liberty to follow any line of respect
able business she might choose.
For the satisfaction of Georgia bach
elors contemplating matrimony, the
defeated party In.thisJ case should
carry the matter to the higher courts.

began their use and they not only re
stored my kidneys to a normal condi
