It is conceded by about every
one that KnMcrn Oregon should
have, and is entitled to tliu lionor
of electing the man to represent

Oregon, in the lialls of congress.
"While, the N i:vh is not a jwlitieul

a linn advocate of the right, and
will labor for the interests of Grunt

Concerning the account of the
(cjimuIo of the ton of Jaiuiu
Miller, an account of which we
publish on the liM page, the Ore-
UoniRti eilitoriallv says: ".n an
alysii of young Miller's com
of tlie hnnl late that drov
stnao rabbery reveals the
ho occame a criminal by deliberate
choice. He preferred tho life of a
tmmp "looking for work," to the
actual work of earning an honest
living on a ranch. It was not the
little education he received at a
district school that unlittcd him for
thu lifu of a farmer. There in
sciircely a farm iu the country that
has not upon it some person who
has had as much teaching iu the
district bdiools as .Mr. .Miller,
while there is to ho found more
than one agriculturist who has not
been spoikd for the work of a farm
by a couno iu an aeademy or eol
lego. With all hie father's inelli
eiency and lack of moral perception
hut without his literary talent, he
is following very closely in the
footstops of his pannt at' tho same j
tender age, with far less prospect '
of being able to follow his later
ones. Heredity, and not tho dis
triut school, is the root of this
young man's choice of the life of a
tramp, with its inevitable ending
within the grated windows of a

THE HEPPNER WAREHOUSE
Has been enlarged to accommodate
the increasing business. The wools
of this section which accumulate at
Heppner, attract all the leading
Western buyers to that point, and
make it the best market in which
the grower can dispose of his clip.
Last season over 1,000,000
pounds of wool was sold in Hep
pner at prices which averaged the
grower more clear money than was
realized by sales of similar wools
in other western markets more dis
tant from the manufacturing cen
ters ol the Bast.
Teamsters charges advanced on
written orders. Cash advanced on
wool in storage.
