All tho efforts of man from tbo
earliest agfa havo boon dlroctad to
ward tho lmprovoniont In his living
conditions, Tho tost of man's char
actor Is his willingness to endure
untoward conditions and to strlvo
to bottor thorn. Tho inau or wo
man who Is just satisfied with his
or hor surroundings no matter how
untidy thoy may bo, Is of llttlo cre

Tho samo tost can bo nppllod to
communities, for thoy aro but nuinur

a backward placo.
Ileal cstato men recogulzo this
prlnclplo and thoy doclaro that the
homo with trees and shrubs, with a
beautiful lawn and sightly surround
ings will always command u better
price than an equally .well built
houso not so Bltuatod.
If this Is true of an Individual
homo, In the aggregate It Is true of
all tho homos of n town. That town
which has protty lawns, shado trees,
parks and tho modern standard of
surroundings Invites homemakurs to

Progress Is being made. It not as

thoso wo aro sure will welcome tho
Mayor's suggestion. It Is Indeod
one worthy of united support.
Congressman N. J, Slunott Is
seeking oloctlnn again. Not for
what Mr. Slnuott has done, partic
ularly, in tho past, especially for
this section of his district, but for
tho position In Which he is now
placod whoroln he cortalnly should
bo able to bo of real aid, tho Argus
bolloYes ho should bo nominated.
Reprosontatlvo Slnnott Is uow
chairman of tbo arid lands commit
too of tbo Houso. This Is a place of
power and prosltlgo with another
session, it ho does not secure more
lust distribution ot tho funds of the
reclamation servlco ho will have no
claim for further recognition from
this soctlon. Howover wo believe
that ho Is entitled to tho opportun
ity to manifest his ability to uso tho
powor and prestigo ot his oxper
lenco and position.
Though not alono responsible, Mr.
Slunott must accept with othora a
portion ot the blamo for tho fact
that Oregon has novor received Its
sharo ot tho reclamation funds. Yet
ho should not bo held alone to
blame. And it would bo unwlso
now to change our representative If

"Who has tho host chance to beat

this quostlon by sovoral Inquiring
men during tho past weok, and this
Indlcatoa tho fooling that has bo
como nmrkod ot lato.
It is this fcollug that Is manifest
od horo, and wo understand oxluts
In othor sections of tho stato, which
shows that tho governor Is not near
ly tho strong candldato that some
consider him. Ho might win, but It
ho docs It will not bo through his
own strougth bo much as through
tho tact that tho opposition to him
Is divided. Ho will bo a minority

Is nominated will bo that, It goes
Tho fact that so many mon nre
still in doubt, and ayro asking only
that thoy bo told "who jean beat 01
cott" shows what would happen If
only ono ot two candidates woro In
tho flold. It would bo almost a
cinch that tho governor would bo
rotlrod to prlvato llfo.
Tho Argus boltoves that thoro aro
at least two candidates, each of
whom is stronger than tho governor
In oxocutlvu ability; It being grant
ed that In knowlcdgo ot tho machin
