THE DALLES IN THE LIMELIGHT
The Dalle haa burnt Into the lime
light. Governor West and a squad or
tnilitia invaded that city Saturday
night, swore In four ministers as dtp
uties. and proceeded to clean up the
town. The regular officers of the law
were not notified. Sheriff Chrisman
Received no intimation that the Gov
ernora deputies were at work, while
District Attorney Bell was left equally
in the dark. Investigations had bees
curried on through the city truant of
ficer and Governor West's secret agent
was a gentleman of color who had
formerly been employed in a Dalles
Granting that The Dalles was in
need of cleaning up, it is a fair ques
tion whether Governor West was war
ranted in ignoring the local officers.
He gave them, apparently, no intima
tion that conditions were unsatisfac
tory, nor opportunity to enforce the
law more strictly than they had. The
Governor's action was a stinging criti
cism of the duly constituted officers
of the law and places them in a de
cidedly unfavorable light. He justi
fies his action by declaring that he
was recently taunted, upon passing
through The Dalles, at moral condi
tions In that city.
Citizens of Oregon respect and ad
mire Governor West. Decent, law-
abiding people would banish such con
dltions as are said to have existed at
The Dalles, but it is a question wheth
er the chief executive of the state
is warranted in proceeding as he did
at The Dalles and as he previously had
done in Portland and other cities of
the state, vindicating, perchance, the
dignity of the state, but giving local
officers of the law mayor, council, dis
trict attorney and sheriff no indica
tion that conditions were unsatisfact
ory and no opportunity to escape the
ignominy of an invasion by state mil
Hood River has definitely allied her
self with the North Pacific .Distribu
tors. As a- result, that organization
will undertake active operations this
year. With the exception of Wen
atchee and the comparatively small
production in the Rogue River Valley
the new central selling agency will
control practically the entire crop ot
Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Mont
ana. Moreover, those districts which
have affiliated themselves with the
Distributors have done so with a unan
imity and enthusiasm which augur
well for its success.
Hood River is the last of the dis
tricts to ally herself with the central
selling agency. Organization of that
agency was affected last December
and all of its details have been worked
out after careful consideration by a
competent board of directors. This
will overcome, to some extent at least.
the fact that the organization now un
dertakes, this late in the season, to
market approximately 80 per cent of
the Northwest's 1913 apple crop.
The Distributors should prove a suc
cess and a most valuable asset for
Hood River and the other districts of
the North west. These districts have
brought the apple to a great perfec
tion, but they have neglected the mar
keting of their product, therefore they
have not received a proper return
The Distributors will remedy this
weakness by bringing the marketing of
the fruit crop to a perfection, it Is ex
pected, equaling the product itBelf.
With a united support from its sev
eral units .or sub-centrals and headed
by men who are admitted to be the
leading shippers of the Northwest, the
North Pacific Distributors is in a po
sition to perform a splendid service
for the fruitgrowers of the Northwest.
"BILLY" SUNDAY REBUKED
Like Kditor Newett of the Iron Ore,
"Hilly" Sunday sometimes makes
statements which, he cannot prove,
showing that an evangelist as well as
an editor Is susceptible to occasional
"breaks." Such an incident which re
cently occurred is told of Mr. Sunday
by an exchange. As he has a sum
mer home here and ig well known to
Jlood River people, the story of how
"Hilly" was struck out, by Madame
Schumann Helnk has its own particu
At South Hend, Indiana, Mr. Sunday
in a sermon on "Mothers" declared
that "Melba, Calve, Katne, and Schu
mann Helnk are cheap skates compar
ed with mothers."
Melba, Calve and Karnes remained
silent, but Schumann llelnk, the moth
er of eight children, preached a better
sermon in a few words than one usual
ly hears. She said:
"This evangelist, as he rails himself,
he preaches religion but did Christ
hurt and malign people to exalt his
own reputation? He taught love.
Never in all his ministry did he hurt
anyone. He died that otht rs might
not be hurt. Never did he attack even
his bitterest enemies. My children
they have been my inspiration."
"Hilly" Sunday apologized from the
pulpit and In per.um. He was for
THE ROOSEVELT VERDICT
Roosevelt's six-cent verdict was one
of the biggest ones, paradoxical as thfc
statement may appear, that the court
try has seen. This is true for the
reason that it completely and for all
times clears the name of one of tht
country's greatest men from an ugly
and. as the evidence showed, altogcth
er unmerited charge. Through the
agency of Madame Gossip probably
eight persons out of ten in the I'nited
Spates have heard the statement made
that Roosevelt was an habitual drink
er. How utterly unfounded the sland
er was the trial showed. If is a point
gained for clear manhood that one of
the greatest and most efficient men
this country has brought forth should
be cleared of this slur upon hid manhood.
LOW RATES GIVEN
Secretary Scott of the Commercial
Club is in receipt of a letter from
Charles T. Early of the Mt. Hood Rail
road stating that a special train will
be run between Parkdale and Hood
River on the Fourth of July for the
convenience of those wishing to attend
the celebration to be held here. It had
been suggested that the regular trains
be reversed on that day ,but Mr. Early
says that it would be impossible on
account of mail and other matters.
He will, however, run a train out of
Parkdale at 8 a. m, This train will
leave Hood River for Parkdale at 10
p. m. and the rates will be the usual
ones one and one-third fare for the
Special rates will also probably be
secured on the O.-W .R. & N. from
The Dalles and Portland, as well at
intermediate points. The rates will
be reduced as usual a fare and i.
third from Portland and intermediate
points and a rate of one dollar for
the round trip from The Dalles. No
special trains will be necessary, but
extra coaches will be attached to
trains from The Dalles and Portland
on that day. J. H. Fredricv. aecnt
here for the O.-W .R. & N., has made
such recommendations to William Mc
Murray, general passenger agent.
