Whllo all of us who llvo In East
orn Oregon, far from tho conlor of
activity In this stato, apprcclnto tho
feelings of tho peoplo of tho Const
counties In tholr dcslro for tho con
Htructlon of tho Hoosovoll. or Const
highway, It Is Impossible) on moral
grounds to JtiHlIfy tho Holl-Norblad
bill directing tho Highway Commis
sion to sot nsldo two and a half
million for Its construction, at this
Tho moral objection Is based on
tho tnnnnor In which tho Itoosovult
Highway wan presented to tho voters
for their consideration; for It wan
ono of tho potent nrguments of Its
advocates that tho money was not
to bo used unless tho United States
Government matched tho sum thus
provided. Hnvlng thus placed tho
mattor hoforo tho voters tho advo
cates of tho highway cannot In
fairness to tho voters of tho state
now nook by Indirection to accom
plish Ui tit which thoy must rcallzo
could not havo secured directly.
It Is truo, no doubt, that had not
tho possibility of govornmont aid
boon entertained by tho Stnto High
way Commission, and by tho peoplo
of tho Coast counties as wolt, tho
commission Itself would havo auth
orized oro this, work on tho coast
highway. That being truo, then tho
coast legislators aro not asking for
an unronsonablo amount.
Granting that tho rouent Is not
In Itsolt unreasonable, thoro Is still
anothor phaso of tho mattor to bo
consldorod; namely Its offoct on tho
program proparod by tho Highway
Commission, upon whom rovolvcs
tho responsibility of admlnlBtorlng
tho road funds. Tho commissioners
thomsolvcn havo nnsworod that ques
tion. Thoy assort that tho proposal
will sorlously embarrass thorn, and
result In tho ntoppngo of work on
tho John Day and other highways
Wo bollovo that It would havo
boon hotter for tho Coast peoplo to
tinlto In placing tholr problem before
tho Highway Commission Itsolf, or
to wait until It could bo definitely
ascertained whothor or not tho flov
ornmont wlH co-oporato during tho
noxt two yearn. Ily that tlmo tho
prosont outlined 'program of High
ways will hnvo boon comploted and
tho peoplo will bo In a position then
to dotormlnn whothor or not It Is
udvlsablo to uuthorlzo additional
bonds for road building, or whothor
tho prosuut HcotiHliiK schedule will
bo so adjusted as to permit of ox-
tomlliiK tho road program without
tho cooporatlon of tho federal gov
ornmont In tho building of tho Coast
Whllo Knbtorn Orogou Is truly tip
probative of tho spirit of co-opora-Hon
gtvon this section by tho peo
ple of tho coast counties In tho vote
for tho registration of Irrigation
bonds, as was manifest In tho voto
for the Itoosovolt Highway bill, yet
wo do not bollovo thut this appro
ulatlou calls for a repudiation of tho
promises mado tho peoplo at that
tlmo, or to subject tho Hall-Norblnd
bill to log rolling In tho legislature.

THK BUSINESS HUVIVAL
Every day tho signs multiply that
business conditions In tho United
Btnlcs aro Improving, lloports from
tho Eastern market centers show
that thoy aro crowded with mer
chants who nro listing orders for
goods, and (Uho tho furthor fact
that tho manufacturers and whole
salers aro nut now able to fill all
thu demands made upon tholr
Thu reason for this condition Is
not hard to find, Whou tho read
justment started last summer and
fall tho factories, not knowing how
long tho depression would continue,
closed tholr doors, and ondeavorod
to liquidate their stocks, as thu re
sult now that there Is u domand,
they aro unablo to flit them.
Tho natural result of prosont con
ditions Is that soon tho factory
whcols of tho Industrial centers will
bo humming, workmen will bo ublu
to buy greater quantities of thu
goods which tho farmers produce;
moat and Its by-products will find
n belter market and tho circle of
prosperity will spread until nil this
region will feel Its results.
Hero In Eastern Oregon wo can
not reasonably oxpoct to feel tho
full effects of roturnlug good times
until this fall. This does not mean
that an Improvement will not bo
marked sooner than that. In fact
thoro nro Indications of Improve
mont to bo noted already; but since
tho busluoss' depression was not
foil hero as soon ns It was In tho
Atlantic and Mlddlo Wcstorn states,
so too will tho resumption of nor
mnl conditions bo slower In mani
festing thomsolvcs horc.
lloforo conditions can bo fully
normal hero tho last, and tho com
ing wool crops must bo disposed of;
cattle must bo on a higher level,
and a greater diversity of product
bo secured. Thosu ovents nro bound
to como. They aro coming now, so
wo hnvo reason to bo optimistic for
