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 permanently. 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.' i GREETING. 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, . V-1AVA UUi VO DAlCfcXJ.

' Jl . 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. '.. ' . : Trusting that, our future relation ship with the good people of Hood River may be mutually '. pleasant -and profitable, we. are, - : ..Sincerely Yours, ,E. R. Bradley. 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. '"What a diversified crop qui? L6rd mil "..be -called uptm ' W harvestl l'at.-iQn (Or.) Tocsin. - 7: '"Comparatively few people In this country realize the. favorable condi tions" under which ; they live, , as compared with other ' countries, 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. Philadelphia Press. ' ' ' 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. Wondef if there would be many idle carpenters, if the government would treat .the common herd as well as it does the national banks? World. ' - " The English-Boer conflict can have but one ending -and that the subjugation of the Afrikanders at no very distant day, yet a '.. great many good men of both sides will "bite the dust" before the conflict shall have ended. Such, however, is war. no matter how just the cause. . Expansion" in territory and ex pansion in business have both gone on to such a marked extent under the- McKinley administration that the people will expand President McKinley's term to ight years, Roseburg Plaindealer." A Kansas woman in Butler county has managed -a -450-acre farm for 10 years and has saved $20,000. This is printed merely to show what a woman can do when not handicapped with a husband.

" 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 (York papers. 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." F. SHAW, Physician and Surgeon, i . HOOD RIVEK, OREGON. Office : Over Everhart's Store.
