That they have been ableto;ing point of view rather than
acquire of the News j from that of the prophet of evil,
is a source of pleasure to the : As optimism and activity are the
new proprietors. It is an easy I foes of pesnimism. hope and en
matter to learn the standing j ergy are also the herald and
which the News has in the city .agent of prosperity,
and valley. As a dispenser of i An analysis of trade conditions
news and as a medium of ipular does not reveal any real cause
opinion the News has maintained j for apprehenslon'and it is not at
an excei'tionallv high newspaper
standard. That this is true re
flects credit upon the previous
owners, who, in retiring, carry
with them the test wishes of a
large and loyal clientele.
As the new owners take up
their duties, it is their hope that
those who, by their friendly feel-
heretofore contributed to the !
success of the News, will con-
tinue in the same relation to the
paper under its new manage
ment. While Hood River, on
account of its splendid resources,
is in one sense its own most ef
fective advertiser, the newspaper
also must play an important part
by publishing a weekly record of
the community's growth and
progress. Trusting that it may
continue to do this to the advan
tage of Hood River and to the
satisfaction of its readers, the
News takes this opportunity to
wish them all a happy and pros
perous New Year.
No Reason For Depression
There has been much discour
aging talk of late about general
depression of trade and stringent
financial conditions. A good deal
of this talk has emanated from
big railroad men, and as the rail
roads are reasonably accurate
barometers of business condi
tions, these utterances have had
a tendency to make the situation
assume a pessimistic outlook.
A glance, however, at the com
parative net earnings of the rail
roads for the closing months of
1910 and 1911 do not furnish
much reason for these gloomy
statements, as there has been but
a 6 per cent decrease in the gross
earnings of the railroads of the
country, a large part of which is
admitted to have been caused by
increased operating expenses
due to the higher cost of living.
It is undoubtedly true that par
tial and almost total crop fail
ures in some sections of the
country have decreased the rev
enue of the country for the pres
ent year, but it is also true that
there is no lack of money, other
than that caused by the big re
serve banks, which are keeping
the strings tied on the puhlic
sack where development invest
ments are concerned.
The transportation lines of the
country announced a policy of
retrenchment a year ago and it
has been adhered to pretty close
ly, although economists do not
find that there has been any par
ticular reason for it other than
However, notwithstanding this
business and financial depression
talk, there has been a large
amount of American money in
vested in stocks and securities,
lith at home and abroad, indi
cating a surplus of capital. It is
evident, therefore, that if a fi
nancial depression exists it is ar
tificial rather than real and could
k' quickly lifted. J. I'ierpont
Morgan says that the present
conditions are due to mental
rather than to material causes,
and winds up by stating that the
country is all right. As no ar
guments can be found in the
general business or financial sit
uation, based tin fact, to contra-

however, that either a real or an

and that the situation can be
made for less serious by looking
at it from an intelligent, think-
all unlikely that with the usual
financial readjustment of the
new year out of the way, new
life will be given the business
situation and that the coming
year will be a prosperous one.
End of Water Fight-Its Lesson
No event should have brought
Hood River a merrier Christmas
nor brin k a ha'Pier New .Year
than the announcement of the
definite settlement of its canker
ous water fight. With the eradi
cation of this civic ulcer and the
cauterizing of the wound by a
return to the friendliness and co
operative spirit that character
ized the Hood River of a few
years ago, the community can
now start on its most promising
era of progress and there never
was a time when its prospects
were more promising; there
never was a time when its future
was more assured nor its oppor
tunities more inviting.
To paraphrase a celebrated
quotation, God might have
made a better place than Hood
River, but he never did," and,
in a broad sense it can be further
remarked that he never made a
better lot of citizens. The frail
ties of mankind, however, are
proverbial, easily worked upon,
and business and social misun
derstandings are easily created
and fostered. If the bitter ex
perience just closed proves a les
son valuable enough to prevent
further contentions of this char
acter, it is possible that it may
have been worth all it cost, but
at best it was needless.
The final settlement of the
SUit iS mOSt advantageous, CTed-
" '
itable alike to both the council s
committee and the opposing cor
poration. There is little, if any,
doubt that the money will be
forthcoming to pay for the plant
and that the whole matter will
soon be a closed incident.
The coming of the new year
therefore seems bright with
promise for civic progress. The
blue skies and sunshine of early
spring should see the long looked
for paved streets and the start
ing of work on the new water
plant. With a spirit of sincere
cooperation stimulating its popu
lation 1912 can be made a banner
year in Hood River and its past
successes b? made to appear but
beginnings. With the dying
water feud there should go that
invisible line of demarcation be
tween the upper and lower city;
sectional differences in the val
ley; Contention between IntJepen-
.... .
df-nt and Union shinrOr: the USe I
of public office for private pur
poses and unprofitable and harm
ful rivalry between business in-
StltUtlOn3. InStOad let there
. r .
arise a new anu firm confidence
. , . .
in Citizen IOr ClllZen; an Un-'
daunted faith in the community
as a whole and a resolution to
ward a broader view in loth
public and private matters.
The requiem of the water fitfht
should be the signal for a rejuv
enated Hood Kiver.
