Letter From Jrrigon.
The youngest town in the state is
Irrigon. Its birth took place some tour
months ago on the bank ot tne Colum
bia at a point seven miles west of Uma
tilla and on the main line of the O. R. &
N. Thin country as left by nature
would be called a desert, but that great
life-giving agency called water has
wrought a great change. Private ir
rigation has been carried on in a email
way euflicient to prove the good quali
ties of the soil. Lately the Oregon Land
Water Company has perfected a syBtein
of irrigation by which they take water
from the Umatilla river some ten miles
away. ThiB company has placed the
land on sale in small tracts and on easy
terms. It has been rapidly gobbled up
by homeseekers from the east as well as
the west. There are now iorty families
living in this once land of sage-brush
and home of the jack rabbit. Many
more own property and will move soon.
Good well water can be bad at a depth
of from 55 to 65 feet. As Hue a piece of
alfalfa as can be found anywhere lies on
the south side ot the railroad. This
field is surrounded with a row of Lom
bard poplar varying in height from 15
to 40 feet. This adds considerably to
the attractiveness and serves as a wind
An idea can tse formed of what the
town and surrounding country will look
like this summer when one considers the
fact that 100 acres fcave beea planted to
potatoes and most f tnem are up now.
Fifty acres have been sown to grain.
Forty acres have been planted to pea
nuts and 100 acres te watermelons. One
man has 10,000 tomato plants on the
ground ready to be transplanted. Forty
acres have been planted to grapes and
30,000 fruit trees are starting in on their
life work. Between the rows of these
fruit trees strawberries will 'be grown,
for whicn Mood River men say the soil
and climate is especially adapted. A
temporary school bouse has been erected
and in it 32 pupils are at pr,eeent laying
a foundation for their future usefulness.
This is in one of the most delightful
climates in the world.

A MAN TO OTE FOR.
J. E. Hedges Nominee for Joint
We wouldbe in despair of the
future of our country if we did not
feel there will be a reaction as a
result of which the present political
machine system will be indicated,
We see signs of it in our nation.
It is worthy of note that this year,
for the first time in the history of
our country, a United States Sena
tor has been convicted of using his
influence as senator to advance the
interests of private persons for an
award paid to himself. There came
dreadfully near being an investiga
tion ot the postoffke department
that, we may judge from the haste
of congress to stifle it, would have
contained very sensational periods.
1 he people have heard tne voice or
truth and the hand writing is upon
the wall. There will vet be in
vestigations which will lead to in
carceration of many and the re
moval from the political stage cf
more of those too guilty to permit
the search for truth. Where better
than in the State Legislature, all of
the members of which are chosen
by the people, can we begin di
rectly to act for reformation ? An
opportunity that is especially favor
able presents itself in the nomina
tion of Mr. J. E. Hedges for Joint
Representative from this and Mult
nomah counties. This candidate is
peculiarly fitted for the position to
which we would elect him. By his
own efforts mainly he has acquired
a broad education-in one of the
old New England Universities, and
to this has added a dozen years or
more to the practice of law. In his
profession he has been eminently
successful. Thus his life for six
teen years has been one of prepar
ation for the . office of legislator.
He has also made a reputation for
being conservative and substantial.
It seems to us that the people
should support him cordially and
thus aid in the progress of reforma
tion. ;' We tiave for period past en
joyed a reasonable degree of pros
perity. In a great measure this
has been due to our own methods
of action and feelings. There will
yet come another and another per
iod of depression and we at times
wonder what a majority of the
people will do for a sufficient in
come during such times to meet the
expenses of government. In all
the period of our prosperity our net
incomes have not increased, indeed
gross incomes have scarcely en
larged. There are, however, keep
ing their integrity or increasing
with the advance of time, certain
things amongst which are taxes
national taxes, state taxes, county
taxes, city taxes school taxes. Of
these we have had so great an ad
vancement that we find the prop
erty owners calling them rents.
Will not a further increase make
the term larceny appropriate? How
long will the patient property
holder endure this increasing and
too great burden without a strong
protest at the ballot box?
Letter From Eastern Oregon.
Castle Rock, Ore, April 19, 1904.
Two artesian wells have been dug in
Klickitat County, Washington, just
across the ColumDia from this place.
One is 150 feet from the Columbia and
water was Btruck at a depth of 142 feet
and enough water flowi through the
eight-inch pipe to irrigate 80 acres of
land. The other well is one mile back
from the river and is 1G5 feet deep. The
How of this well is abont the same as
first one. The cost of drilling these
wells is J 1000 each. The contractor
doing the drilling is W. E. Thomas of
Castle Rock, Ore.
This water, flowing as it does with an
immense pressure sufficient to force it to
a height of 200 feet, means thousands of
dollars to the owners of surrounding
property. There are about 3000 acres
on this slope that will make magnificent
farms if enough such wells can be dug
to aupply the water. Present Indica
tions show that the only thing neces
sary is capital with which to do the

all this land will in the not far distant
future, be dotted with artesian wells and

A STRONG CANDIDATE.
Judge Wm. Galloway for Judge
in Third Dislrict.
Hon. Wm. Galloway, Democratic
nominee for Judge in the Third Judicial
District, is a pioneer of 1852, having lo
cated in Yamhill county with his parents
in that year. Mr. Galloway was educa
ted at the Willamette University, grad
uating in the class of 1868. He repre
sented Yamhill county in the Legisla
tures ot 1874, 1878 and 18S0. He took
an active part in the legislation during
those eventful years and was chairman
of the Ways and Means co-nmittee in
1878 at which time the state tuildmgs
for the insane, the capitol building and
additions to the penitentiary were under
construction. Judge Galloway has been
for many years a life member of the
Oregon State Agricultural Society, and
has served twelve years on the State
Board of Agriculture, being President of
the Board four years. He is a life mem
ber of the Oregon Historic il Society and
at present is president of the Oregon
State Pioneer Association. Ha? also
served as a trustee of the Soldiers' Home
at Roseburg, having always taken a deep
interest in tne wellare of the veterans.
Mr. Gallowav was Judge of Yamhill
county from 189D to 1804 and left office
with the county out of debt. In 1864 he
was the Democratic nominee for Gover
nor, making a canvas ol the state against
his successful opponent, Judge Lord. In
February 189(1 he was appointed Re
ceiver ot the U. 8. Land Office at Ore
gun City and served until July 16, 1902.
During this time he rendered many de
cisions involving complicated land titles,
and handled near $100,000,000 without
the loss of a cent to the Government or
its patrons. Since retiring from the
Land Cilice .vlr.Galloway has been ac
tively engaged in the jjractice of law,
The Courier assures the people of our
neighboring district that in the election
of Judge Galloway they will have an
honest, fearless and capable official.
ANYTHING WILL DO.
One of the Evil Results of Too
Largd a 1'arty Majority,
From The Dalles Times-Mountaineer
Because of the overwhelming Repub
lican majority in Oregon, that party ap
pears to think that almost "any old
thing"will do for a congressional nomi
nee. Of all the bright, active, able
young Republicans in the first district,
not one could be nominated. That old
fossil, Binger Hermannn, who has a
record that is so black that Satan would
be ashamed of it, was nominated by the
district Republican conventiou at Salem
by acclamation. The Republicans of
the first district thought tbey could
palm any old thing off on the people,
and on election day they would march
up to the polls and vote the ticket
straight, so they nominated Hermann.
This nomination is indeed a fortunate
thing for Mr. Hermann, for bad he not
been succeasfal before the convention,
he would probably have been indicted
for crooked work while commissioner of
the general land office. But now that
he has been nominated for congress, he
is immune. No federal prosecuing at
torney wold dare to bring a charge
against Mr. Hermann since he is a can
didate. It would be suicidal for him to
thus attempt to do (lis duty.
The Domination of Hermann for office
is one of thoBe unfortunate results that
come from one party having too great a
majority in Oregon. If the vote were
any way near close in the first district,
such things as Hermanu would never
be thought of as candidates for office, but
bo long as a nomination by that party
is equivalent to election, the dominant
party will notbe cautious about select
ing candidates . That Hermann will be
re elected is almost a foregone conclu
sion, but when heis re-elected the first
district will have a blank in the lower
house one that is iu such bad odor at
Washington that Speaker Cannon re
fused to give him an assignment on a
committee when he made up the com
mittees of the present session of con
gross. The nomination of Hermann is an in
sult to the people of the first district, but
they will waltz up to the polls on June
0 and elect him jubt because he is a Ra
publican. How To Itaisi Cheap Cow Feed.

method of taising cow feed and putt'ng

when the time comes it must be done;
it can't be put off until some other time
in the spring.

work is going on there is no time to lose.
Clod mash the ground after the corn ii
planted. As soon aa the corn can be
seen, put plast?r on it (about 60
pounds per acre.) Last year, in spite of
the late spring, I raised two immense
crops of feed on the same piece of ground.

made good corn aa well as fodder.
Vetch is the best thing to get ground
in good condition I ever saw, it gives
the weeds a good chance to come up In
winter and spring and when warm
weather comes the vetch will get in its

kill, bat just to make the corn grow.
This crop must be cut and pat la the

good-sized cream check each month at

Kemp Celebrates lOOlh An
niversary. It is a source of genuine pleasure to
record the incidents in the life ofa pi
oneer of Oregon, and especially when
that life has been one that is radiant
with good deeds and kind words.
Such a life as that is that of Mrs. Sarah

Miss Newbil was married to a Mr.
Kemp in Virginia. They went to Mis

'52, the year in which so many noble
pioneers made that difficult and danger
ous journey. It was a sad journey for
Mrs. Kemp. On the way, a little daugh
ter, five years of age, died and ws bur
ied io the valley ol the Platte. The hus
band received internal injuries while
crossing the Snake at Fort Hall, died
and was buried in the Grande Ronde
near the present Bite of La Grande.
Mrs. Kemp and her six children, a so a
and five daughters, settled near Salem.
She has lived in Marion county almost -continuously
since '52, until three years
ago when she came to Uregon Uity to
make her home with her daughter, Mrs.
