EENDLEJOlf ..AND THE DALLES
Pendleton is progressive. Probably
a Uthe present time it is the most enter
prising town in Eastern Oregon. We do
not make this statement because we
want to, but because from a candid survey
of the situation it eeems to be the truth
Throoghout.tb.e sta(e.generally the news
papers are commenting upon j the push
au.d energy which that city is showing in
trjing to attract the attention of outeHe
capital and building up industries with
in its limits which ehall cause the com
ing in of more capital and the giving em
ployment, to laboring men ho jn tnrn
will support business houses and bring
the prosperity that always attend every
city where pay rolls exist. Everyone
has heard. of the establishment of the
ecouriog mill at Pendleton and watched'
its successful operation. At that time it
was predicted that this was but a starter
in Pendleton's industrial life 'and the
prediction came true. As soon as the
scouring mill was firmly on its feet and
the fact was made patent tuat the en
terprise was a good one, agitation was
begun for a woolen mill ; and the woolen
mill is coming. The capital tocfc is al
ready subscribed and by next spring the
roaring of the looms will be heard and
the sound will bo a pleasant one to the
inhabitants of the city.
But the scouring mill and woolen mill
are not the end. A proposition has been
made to the citizens of Pendleton to
build a manufacturing plant which will
give employment to twenty-five men
and form a pay roll of $1,500 monthly.
According to the East Oregonian unless
at least this number are given employ
ment and at least $1,500 is expended
for wages the plant is not to cost Pendle
ton a cent. The consideration asked is
that an oLd foundry 'plant be d'ided to
the company starting the enterprise. In
connection witli . the , manufacturing
plant there will be "a foundry, machine
shops and general repair shops which
within themselves will be of real value
to Pendleton and the people of the county
and tributary country. And, besidee,tl e
establishment of. this manufacturing
plant here (in Pendleton) will insure the
development of another water power
plant in the. lower part of .town, which
will give employment to fifteen or more
men all the year round, as theee would
run both night and day ."' .This is .the
prospect or Pendleton. That its citi
zens will. avail .themselves of the offer
we have every confidonce. They have
never had .the reputation of . Ietliog a
good thing go by and they will not begin
It may be asked why The Ciikonici.e
is giving this advertisement to Pendle
ton, when its first duty is to its home
town, but the answer is plain enough.
The Dalles can learn ome good things
from her neighboring city and we
shouldn't be slow to do it. And the first
of them is that the way to grow in im
portance is to have some organization
which can act as a medium between the
citizens ot the town and the outside
world. Pendleton had such an organi
zation and,, though we are uot conversant
with the details, yet we are confident
that its commercial club has had a great
part in securing the advantages enoken
of. The Dalles needs a commercial club
and needs it badly. In fact this city
must have some such organization if it
means to keep apace with other places.
Of natural advantages wo have more
than any other interior city in the state.
A river soon to be opened to the sea will
give ns low rates on tho products shipped
through our .warehouses, while . goods
can. be laid down to our .merchants at
figures much' lower than can be given to
cities farther in the interior. A large
country is tributary to us and will re
main so. , The surrouddingsoil is fertile ;
J. Corbett has presented the world's
pugilistic championship tol'eter Aianer,
who has been whipped by at least two
second-rate fighters. But it is in entire
accord with the fake principles of
modern mieilismthat Maher could carry
a title which he never earned and which
half a dozen other bruisers are better en
Pendleton East Oreeonian : The
proposition to establish a manufacturing
plan here is now -Deiore- tne people oi
Pendleton. It will take subscriptions to
the extent of $3,500 to secure the enter
prise for Pendleton. We believe it will
be worth the money. Its coming will
also guarantee the operation, of an elec
tric power plant to be run night and day
to furnish electrical, power -to any. .one
who will need it. this will be a valu
able acquisition to Pendleton's indus
tries, within itself. By contributing
this $3,500 the people pf Pendleton will
provide at least forty men .wibreniunra-
tive work, who will spend annually in
Pendleton, at Jeaat $Sj,PQ0, which will
indirectly 'fnrnish-cccupation toas many-
more. Pendleton needs all such enter
prises it can secure. In securing them
Pendleton people are simply helping

pendiug scramble of lands on the Nez
Perce reservation -would be difficult to
determine. The reservation is the best
laige tract of land remaining unoccupied
in the Dnited States, but the price to be
paid by the homesteader is in excess of
anything before demanded, and counting
the time of -wailing-for-thevouening, the:
price to be paid before title can bn se
cured, the requirement of long residence
and the improvements that will have to
be made, the. cost will figure up --closely
to the amount that-would buy improved
lands in the Palonse country. It is also
to le considered-tbat some of the home
seekers will have to take second and
third grade lands, and it is quite certain
that many of these will pay the fees and
take homesteads at $3 75 per acre no
better than vacant lands yet to be had
