Waldo Perry. "With Perry dead. El
lexson In prison, the curtain la rung
down on what was one of the worst
crimes Union county has ever known.
And It might appear to some that
there were actors In this fearful
drama who never got the censure they
were entitled to. , , '
For the number of mudholes In the
residence district La Grande has every
other city beaten to a standstill. If
the city streets were properly graded
and drained Ed. Fowler and the rest
of the transfer and hack lines would
save . a third on horse feed, in the
winter time. "'
Last evening an automobile stuck In
the mud in a close residence section.
It was a good machine, but the 'mud
was too deej for It. This is another
reason why we need some road grad

SETTING THE PICE.
This Is the year that La Grande sUs
the pace, commercially, for every oth
er Eastern Oregon city. Did you no
tice the land deals already, pending
and consummated? Did you notice
the amount of money Involved in thes
transactions? And d:d ou notice fur
ther, that local dealers and real estate
men are taking on life and stimulation
as a result of th- outside Investors?
Now, real estate men either make or
liaa it 'gru wiu$ ccmniunuy. by their
efforts they can make it go forward
rapidly, or if they are not alive to the
situation they can place a community
on the shelf and let it remain in a
state of coma for years when nature
has done everything for that same
community. But It is evident the real
ertat. men of La Grande are going to
be a live bunch this year and larg?ly
through their efforts the rcs will be
set for neighboring cities.
Baseball enthusidfv lire already be
ginning to enthuse, which 4s a sure
Indication of the approaching spring
time. But the great trouble with base
ball Is lack of organization and lack
of support.' To run, a ball team prop
erly the money should be raised in ad
vance and a good business man placed
at the head'. It la the' grtat game and
there should be a two-county league
here for the summer. There It no
use to try If, however, unless the pre
llmlnarlea mentioned are made before
' the first ban is put over the plate.
' Do not get excited about growing
,,rice In' the Willamette valley. Rice
. culture la very, different from , any
, other cereal. It requires a great deal
r of water during the growing season,
something) the Willamette valley dots
not possess. ) One . rice canal In the
summer ' would drain the entire WJ-
laraette valley. The;, experiment" If
likely talked of by Vjaie energetic
promoter. Arid besides, ttie mosquitoes
In the" valley are not larg;e enough for
v'rle growing district, j v
,Th9 finding of Ellexson's time book
'will assist the Jury in believing it did
the right thing when a verdict of guil
ty was returned against the slayer of
President Taft's statement to Diaz
that there will be no interference In
Mexican affairs probably meant there
will be none so long as Diaz lives. But
If the old gentleman should die, Just
watch your Uncle Samuel.
IMPRISONMENT FOR SMUGGLING.
New York Times.
Mrs. Hill, whose three days of im
prisonment In the Tombs for attempt
ed smuggling were pompleted yester
day, was the first to suffer imprison
ment for this crime since the recent
strict Interpretation of the customs
laws began. But the courts have
served fair warning to all offenders.
Imprisonment for petty smuggling un
der conditions as flagrant as thone
revealed in this case, is likely to be
the common penalty hereafter, :.-Tht
law provides for imprisonment as
well as a ,flne, and ibis right that the
law should be strictly enforced. Nor
Is It, to be taken for granted that all
who are convicted will be sentenced to
imprisonment for so short a term.
" This example should tend to lessen
the practice of smuggling among
wonvn who travel abroad. But doubt
less the customs officers may be
skeptical about any means of break
ing up that practice. Recent events
have Indicated that th? smuggling
habit is strong and hard to break;
Women of, ample means, who would
scorn to commit any other crime,
seem to regard this manner of swin
dling the ovrnment as laudable and
ev;n amusing, until they are found
out. " But the collector of the port Is
keeping his eyes open, and the chance
of successful smuggling . la now very
small. Smuggling Is not respectable,
It Is not decnt,4ind a term of three
days In the Tombs, or one of a month
or six months, cannot fall to Injure a
woman's social repute. It Is likely
there will be lesa attempted smug
gling of fuoa and Jewelry next summer
than there was last year.
