TTnn J TV Representative from Multnomah county-
has Introduced only, one bill in the Oregon Legislature at the
present session
Ham oa RH1 Kn. 1
Though it has teen followed by the introduction of some
fit mnr. kill in that, hraneh of the Legislature alone; a vast
mass of largely undigested propositions, many of them of lit
tle or no consequence, and some of them vicious
Until it appears that there will have to be a sort of
wholesale referendum movement, in an attempt of the over

Mr, Lee's bill sought to provide for an Oregon State
Commissioner of Promotion and Industryworking under the
' State Board of Control, to assist chambers or commerce ana
l cnmmtrciA clubs and countv agricultural agents and all such
societies and all individuals working for the upbuilding of
the whole state and all its .industries
A concrete scheme for eivinz prospective investors and
settlers the information and the help they need in getting in
dustries established and in getting people onto the land.
Mr. Lee's idea was to furnish practical help, in the way
of statistical facts and other information, and in the way of
actual personal service, looking to the larger development of
this very generally undeveloped state.
His friends assured him that this was a very much need-
- ed work, and it looked like easy sailing
But when his bill got to third reading it was plain that
the other schemes had elbowed it off the boards, and so it
was laid on the table; and it is probably too late now to have
it taken ur.
. The Vacific Northwest Tourist Association, for instance,
is asking for a larger appropriation, though it has its of f ices
in Seattle and proposes nothing for Oregon in a concrete
; ; way ' ' ' 1 .
!f In fact, is a hot-air proposition, furnishing nothing but
1 that article, appealing only to the tourist who comes and goes
ind does little in a practical way, excepting to pay his bills
St the first class hotels and to contribute to the gasoline;
shortage. v - - .. .
, This,, hot-air proposition may be worth the money it
costs ; and so may all thcother hot-air propositions ; and their
name is legion. : 5
But even their work would be made of a great deal more
practical value if some agency were committed to get down
to brass tacks and do something to help capitalists and set
tlers get their bearings.
There is no literature provided for now that deals in any
thing but generalities; no way for one to find out, in plain
figures, what Oregon's productions in all lines were last year,
' and where there is a demand for activities of various kinds
; in the way of industries, and for men to go onto the lands
and, produce greater and more varied crops.
That is what Mr. Lee's bill proposes to supply. It pro-
poses an appropriation of $45,000, and directs that its print
ing shall be done by the state at cost.
Hot. air is good; fine; but you cannot build up a great
state or a great city on hot air The basis of all solid pros
perity is the production of things in and on and under and
above the soil, and the preparation of these things for the
markets pf the world, and the manufacturing and handling
and storing and dealing in and shipping of them on the way
from the soil to the consumer. If we would grow great and
greatly prosper we must keep our feet on the ground
And that is the Duroose of House Bill No. 1. now ouietlv

' This is prune week. It all comes down to the buying and
eating of prunes. And the more you eat the better for your
self and the prune industry. j
The Democratic national com
mittee is planning a meeting of
the faithful to be held in St.
Louis about March 1. The Dem
ocratic party is in about the same
position as the historic mule that
was being shipped by rail from
Missouri with the name and ad
dress of the consignee written on
a tag dangling from the animal's
neck. When the train reached
the end of the line the freight
agent noticed the mule and asked
his helper where the animal was
going. The darkey was unable

nants or the string and after
scratching his head, remarked:
"Dis doggone mule ain't got no
place to go. He's done gwine

Democracy seems to have no place
to go. It isn't even dressed up.
The advocates of complete in
dependence for the Philippine
islands are preparing to renew
their efforts during the special
session. Congress has already de
clared that it is the purpose of

ity of these possessions are se

The historical section of The
Statesman is nearly ready for the
pressmen. It is hoped to have it
a part of he paper of Friday. It
will contain about eight paws of
matter and pictures; all of which
should go into the records and be
a part df the history of the coun
ty and state.
