THE ...SUN ' LEASED.
With this issue the Sun appears
'under new management, Mr. E. R
:Bradley, a competent and experi
enced newspaper, man 01 many
years' experience in Nebraska and
' Texas., having rented the paper for
one . year. This change was occa
sioned by the ' proprietor .having
property interests at Sumpter, in
eluding . mining claims and town
." property, which, owing to late de-
velopments, may become quite val
.uable by giving it our personal at
tention. '.The writer will divide his
time during .the year between his
:home at Hood River and Sumpter,
while the family - will reside here
The new -editor and publisher,
...Mr. Bradley, is a gentleman of ex
cellent character and wide and val
ued experience in editorial work
and artistic job printing, and no
doubt will make the Sun a better
: newspaper than it has been under
ur.control. 'His family, consist
ing ef a-wife and two children, who
are now visiting relatives in East
.ern Canada, are expected here next
month,' and will be a welcome ac
quisition to pur town. I " -
The writer desires ; to heartily
thank the many patrons and
friends of the Sun for" their very
courteous treatment ., and ; liberal
patronage, also our able corps of
correspondents for their valuable
-assistance, and trusts that the same
good will and hearty support be
.-extended to the new editor, who
-will continue the paper to all who
. have paid in advance for the time
.paid for. . . " S. P. Shtjtt.'
lt is generally customary upon a
change of management being made
in a paper, for both .interested par
ties to make such statement to the
readers as will give them' all neces
sary enlightenment in the premises
in me arucie appearing auove, uie
proprietor of the Sun, Mr. Shutt,
makes clear,. why a change takes
place at this time ; and it remains
therefore only necessary for me to
add a word by way of greeting.
leaving it more particularly for the'
; future to determine how acceptable
may be our business relationship
.with the patrons of the Sun and the
people generally - of Hood River
.Valley. . . - '.
- During the brief period of its ex
istence the. Sun has shown quite
. conclusively where it stands politi--tally
and for the future it will un
falteringly. follow the same general
policy. .The change of management
does not call for any change in this
particular. As a live, local news
: paper it has " already reached i
standard that , has brought strong
" words of-commendation from . all
. sources, and it will be our aim for
the coming year to keep it up to
:, that excellent standard. Our ex
perience in the newspaper field
however, has proved to us that
much depends on the community,
whether the local papers are lead
ing in the van or merely existing,

recognition of the Sun as our efforts
for the unbuilding and advancement
-of Hood River and surrounding
country may merit, and will, leave
it for the future to determine how
earnestly we shall work along that
line. '.. ' . :

To be a Christian in name and a
Christian in fact are entirely dif
; ferent things,: This ' doctrine has
.been eminently illustrated the past
week, in Richland, while a subscrip
tion list was being passed around
for the benefit of a widow and little
children in destitute circumstances.
. The names of those 'classed as sin
ners of all the sinful appear "with a
rliberal contribution, but the names
o some of the .would-be Christians
.are conspicuous by .their absence.

Every year we read of famine some
where, -extending over a vast region
and resulting in the starvation of
thousands or. millions. . This year
famine'prevails to some" extent , in
both European Russia and portions
of India, "where untold millions of
people depend solely upon the crops
raised in these regions. .- In this
one respect, .not to mention others,
there is no region 01 equal area
comparable with the United States,
A failure of crops occasionally oc
curs in a comparatively small re
gion, a few counties or one-third, or
half a state, but'no such thing as a
general famine " was ever known,
and it is an impossibility. There
is no country like our ,own for re
liable resources, and in no other is
there or can' there' be .as great re
wards .or as many opportunities "for
the "common - people" and es
pecially for, agricultural laborers. ""'
... Nebraska, like every other state
in the Union; is richer today than
ever in its past history. , Its corn
crop alone is 100,000,000 bushels,
the largest ever grown, and that
means $20,000,000 additional to "its
farmers. The mortgaged "farms are
growing less each day. The , poor-
houses, of the state are almcst ten
antless.; The banks of the state
have ample money deposited by its
own people to meet all the require
ments of business, and that means
defeat to Bryanism.. It is plain
that populism can no more stand
prosperity than the Indian can civilization-
It ruins their business.

From this on, for some months,
rumors of substituting some other
candidate for Mr, McKinley will be
rife. They are concocted by disap
pointed politicians or uhveracious
press correspondents with " little
honest work on hand, irue, a
great many individual republicans
would ' prefer "McKinley's ' retire
ment, , but the politicians are for
him ;he . has the machines all in
hand; not' to give him a second
term would be a sore and unusual
affront, and when the convention
meets he will be nominated without
manifest opposition Telegram. -
The people would be in clover if
they could get money of the govern
ment, as. cheaply as the", national
banks do. The banks pay one per
cent; One per cent, on $1,000 is
$10. A fellow could build an $800
house on ' a $200 lot and it would
cost him only $10 a year, and say
$10 more for taxes, " $5 . for in
surance. . Total $25.'- Better than
$10 a month or a $120 a year rent.

idle carpenters, if the government
would treat .the common herd as
well as it does the national banks?

Apropos of &U this, and other, news from
arls. we . take this opportunity to express
our admiration of the -extremely able .and
interesting news service . from Pari and from
London .whiqh " The Chicagro Tribune " :has
been running daily in its columns for several
months paet; Several of the New York dailies
.have excellent cable letters -from London and
sometimes other European .capitals In their
Sunday issues, but they appear as a rule only
once. -a week, the .brief dispatches .which -they
get -ont-he oiher days ot the week not amount
ing to much in the way of an Intelligible and
adequate- presentation . of European news. .
" The Chicago Tribune's foreign service.
-.signed "Grace Corneau " "from Paris and
" H. J. Whigham " from London, taking it
-all the week around, is a. lone way ahead of
the foreign news service of any of the New
One or two of the New York papers have
had for years a deservedly high renutation
for presenting their readers with news of in
terest from- foreign parts, and the public will
not forget Us indebtedness to them on that
account. But It is beyond dispute that the
star of journalism is Westward taking its
way, and that the journalism of Chicago is
beginning to be the metropolitan journalism
of the present, and will certainly be, if things
move as they are .moving now, the metro
politan journalism of the future. We do not
generally, if at all, approve the politics of
" The Chicago Tribune." but, apart from its
politics, it is, in our opinion, superior to any
of the New. York papers. Not only is its for
eign news service the best in the United
States, but its home news service covers the
country with a fullness to which the New
York papers are strangers. 11 The Tribune's "
edition last Sunday must have caused qualms
of envy to the journalists of New York. It wss
a Journalistic effort to which hitherto none
of the Gotham papers has been equal.
Ill all Water Advertising Mark.
The New York Herald of April IT printed an
editorial statement that on the previous day
(Sunday, April lb) its paid advertising reached
the hltsh water mark in that journal's history.
" The Chicago Tribune " on that same day, last
Sunday, April 10, printed not only more adver
tising than the New York Herald, but what Is
believed to be the greatest amount ever printed
In a single issue of any regular main edition of
a newspaper. Leaving out of account the twenty-two
columns of advertising printed by ths
New York Herald on that day in the special sec
tion devoted to the interests of Brooklyn and
New Jersey and appearing only in those editions,
the record of " The Tribune " for April 16 sur
passed that of the Herald for he same day by
more than 10,000 agate lines of paid advertising.
Even allowing the Herald all it claims, includ
ing its Brooklyn and New Jersey supplements,
the New-York Herald on that day still fell short
of " The Tribune " by more than 1,000 lines in
the actual amount of paid advertising.
The exact figures are given as follows: The
New York Herald of April 16 printed in its main
edition, exclusive of -its Brooklyn and New Jer
sey supplements, 77,823 agate lines of advertise
ments. Including those supplements it claims
86,700. " The Chicago Tribune " printed that
day 88,450 agate lines of paid advertisements.
The comparison should be made In lines of agate
measure, because the columns of " The Trib
une " are longer and contain 305 agate lines,
while those of the New York Herald contain only
2SS lines of agate each.
For tho four Sundays ending April 16, the
number of columns of advertisements in the New
York Herald, according to its own claims and
including its Brooklyn and New Jersey special
section, was 1,067.25. In the same period of time
" The Tribune " printed 1,084. 43 columns of ac
tual paid- advertisements. These, reduced to
.agate lines, give the New York Herald 307,r08
lines and " The Tribune " 330.751 lines. In " The
Tribune " there were printed in that period
23,383 more agate lines than In the New York
Herald. This excess was equal to eighty-one
columns of the size of those of -the New York
Herald. Therefore the New York Herald printed
an average of 20.25 columns less each Sunday
than " The Chicago Tribune."
