DO NOT PASS THAT BILL
. Do not pass Senate bill 177. v It provides for. an extension
of. the time when fish wheels shall cease, to operate in the
Columbia river, and other fixed appliances in parts of the
waters of the Columbia river ; ; .f'l; '
Puts the time off till after the last day ; of 1928
- Gives these hellish devices all of this year and all of next
year to operate.
; Why? To give certain interests that have fattened at
the expense of the commercial fishing industrjr for years
- That have done so unjustly . i'
- . That much more time in which to reap; their rich and
unjust rewards ;.as though they had not been doing so long
enough and entirely tooSkrag, against the rightful arid just
interests of the" rest of the people; of Oregon. It is mainly
two men, and at the most 50 men, against a million people ;
aganist- all the rest of the people of Oregon. .
Of course, the 50 have a right to ask the million for an
extension! of the Jtime of their unjust gains ; ibut the million
must not grant the demand ; and the members of the legisla
ture have no right to make the million go to the expense of
referring an unjust bill for another vote. . :
s If this were only a matter of further profits to the two
(and at most the 50) men, it would not fee -such a great in.
justice, j 'v .;. :
' But it is more than this. The 24 hatcheries and egg sta
tions and feeding ponds in Oregon, all oh the tributaries of
the "Willamette and the coast streams, turned last year
40,000,000 young salmon on their way to the sea, to come
back commercial fish.
Not one was turned loose from a single state hatchery in
rany branch of the Columbia : : ;
- And why? ,J -M; -. ;.
- Because hatcheries cannot be maintained on the branches
of the Columbia, for not sufficient, salmon get by the fish
wheels and fixed gear to make a hatchery of a Columbia
tributary possible: It has been tried, and failed.
It was tried recently, on two . Column tributaries, that
normally, before the fish wheels and other fixed gear were
operated, would furnish '40,000,000 salmon eggs and there
vere not enough to justify a watchman on either stream.
v AThis j legislature ought to pass the bill before it now, to
complete the cleaning up of the Columbia ri ver, with the
proper amendment .
This j in all fairness and decency.
Then the fish fights before the legislature every two years
. . Ml 1- - ? M ' ... . ... . . "
ww pe over, mere win De nothing to fight about.
Then the commercial fishing industry of Oregon, will
grow, as it should grow, from a $10,000,000 annual output to
a f oO,ooo,000 annual output, and more.
4 , It has a right to so grow. In all honesty. In all fairness
in all decency.
If the legislature will not do the fair andfdecent thing,
me people at the polls will have to do it.
HOUSE BILL li9
House bill 119 has passed the lower branch of the Oregon
legislature, it is a bill to permit the proper formation o
drainage districCs, and; the regulation of them . : -
- Like the one proposed to take care of the flood waters
. of the southeastern section : of Salem," and ? to allow of the
drainage of such districts. v -1 " t .
- - The bill provides for ways to simplify and make just such
undertakings and operations. .! v ;r
The passage of this bill would add millions of dollars to
the value of the property in "the southeastern section of
Salem, j; It would make that district the great manufacturing
and truck gardening section of the capital city;
-No doubt it would do equal service for sections in and near
jother Oregon cities. i '
. It would cost the state nothing it only provides for the
s proper proceedings and machinery. . j
HOUSE BILL 429
- House bill 429 looks like an innocent proposition. No doub
those who introduced tho bill were led to believe it is innocent
andjjrovides against abuses ,i ,
But; it has a joker; several jokers. '
It would protect the business of bootlegging in Oregon, by
making' the detection and prosecution of this outlawed traffic
next to impossible . r - . .
Would make the criminal practice safe.'" v
Kead the bill over. Study it. Then let it die peacefully
Ur if it shows up o the.floors of the legislative bodies, kill it
Or amend it so as to kill the real purposes of it. i '
; Clean up the Columbia, and do it now. ; Don't prolong the
life of an unjust privilege, -and one that hampers the proper

The youngsters in the schools of Marion and Folk counties
are likely to take up a good deal of space in the Slogan pages
of The Statesman. And they will in due course of time teach
U3 all to better appreciate the"wonderful advantages of the
peerless section in which we live. ;
Brazenose coughed apparently
harlng a bit of trouble with his
throat, and his son arose to swing
away tb a window, where he stood
looking off oTer roofs to a dark
horizon. '.. , 4 ' ' - - -
Is that all I'm to know -about
"No. I'll tell you. She said I'd
never given yon- a chance to show
what was in you and she's right.
She said I couldn't expect anybody
with your imagination and wealth
of resource' and -and ail that--
to keep it bottled up while ; yoa
attended to a lot of little petty de
tails that a :. forty-dollar clerk
could handle. She said I was
throwing away: In a fit of temper
the most valuable asset 'I had. for
myself In the business." The cap
itals had' been erased, from "the
high priest's references to his al
tar. -It was the Brazenose way" to
do, thoroughly anything once un
dertaken. '; : H' --' 4' ' ''I
She said I was considering
property at the expense of life
and she was damn well rightf ,1
was. But I hadn't sense enough
to see It until she rubbed it in.
She said life ought to be propor
tionedrounded and that I'd de
formed my own and was trying to
train your back into the ' same
hump." '' ') ' ...
"That Bounds--pretty hard." ;
"Oh; she said other things, too.
about about you and, me. You
must have talked more than you
usually do. Boy about us. And
she seemed to know what ' your
mother wanted yorf to be." v k
There was a long pause, each
man too moved to trust his voice..
At last, still facing the window,
Piggy said huskily: i "
"She's a wonder!" ,
"She's air that. I . don't know
how R. K. Scott ever came to have
such a daughter. She may be a
whippet to look at, but she's, big
inside. I hoped you were going
to marry her, but she says she's
going to marry somebody else In
a day or two. Who is he?"
"H'mph; Youre going to stand
"Then. I'm not the only fool In
the family, son."
"Why didn't you cut him out?"
"She's been engaged, to him
for a long time, I guess. , Anyway,
she came over to marry him. What
could I do about, even even if I'd
wanted to?" said Piggy, insa tone
speaking volumes to his suddenly
Another, long pause. Then Braze
nose asked gently. "Had your
"Neither have we. We waited
for you, ' and it's ' getting late.
Change your. clothes and we'll go
down to the girls."
"I I'd rather not, dad. Can't
we have dinner alone just ; you
and me?" . " ,
'Frald not, this time. Roberta
wants' to-see you."ji, si
Piggy shut: his teeth hard,
squared his shoulders and turned
toward his father again.
; "All right. ,i- I'll change now.
Aind if I take time for a bath?"
One glance showed Brazenose
that' in those days at Fitzwilliam
his son 'had added cubits to his
stature. , There was a new, stern
firmness about the mouth - and
chin, a new,f deep clarity in the
steady gray eyes. He put out a
hand and gripped the other's arm.
-"I just want to say. this now.
P.-G. We've both been fools but
I guess that's largely my fault.
I've always treated you like a kid.
That's over. ' I'm learning to know
a man when I see one and I'm
proud of you, Boyf . ft- I
'Only when he was in his bath
did it occur to Piggy that he had
not yet learned how 'or why the
detectives had been removed his
path, nor -what., had been done
about Scot tl -lie ought to ask, too.
how the business situation stood
now, and whether his father had
made any progress toward a satis
factory arrangement ; with . Kllli-
grew. That meant an awful lot to
dad. . As soon as he could he open
ed the door and. shouted: '
"Dad, what about that Killigrew
automatic threader?" ,.,
- Receiving no reply, he looked
out and found the room empty. A
sheet of notepaper stood propped
against the Gideon Bible on the
table, with a scrawl In his father's
hand stating that' he had ' gdne
down to order dinner, which would
be served In. the girls' sitting joom
where ; Piggr was to present him
self as early as. possible. He won
dered briefly why dad had both
ered to. write Instead of singing
out,' unaware that during his own
seclusion Instructions- had come
up from 4readQuarters; but .his
mind was too fully occupied with
large things to concern Itself with
trifles. ,When he had finished
dressing- he went I downstairs and
rapped at th indicated door.
Roberta opened It. and a glance
over her head showed him that she
was alone. He backed precipitate
ly away, stammering:'
"Oh! Oh, I thought dad was
here. I'U go and find him.
"Come In, Peter please." she
begged, with an unwonted and
adorable shyness. "I asked him
not to come for a. little while. I -I
wan to see you alone just
minute." - -."
Piggy went In, much as he
would have walked over not
plowshares If she had requested It
in that tone. 11 She softly closed
the door. '
"I just want to thank yoa, no
that it's all ove." Standing be
fore him, hands clasped and eyes
glowing In a colorless face, she
spoke in a small, fluttering voice
that tore at his heartstrings.
"You've been wonderful." ?
"I didnt do anything," he said,
abashed and unhappy.
"You did everything. If it had
n't ' been' for you, Celia'd be at
Rfrfhwood yet. It was all you
your Ideas, your money and loyalty."-
- . .. V
"I -merely got us Into a hole.
His tone ' was not' as 4 gruff as be
had hoped to make It.. "You got
us out. I don't know how,-: ;.;
Oh, ddlnt he tell yu? It was
your 'dad.' .He's perfectly won
derful Peter; He's like yoa in
foreseeing everything and prepar
ing for It. i He knows father, too,
and how -to handle him. ; He took
me ,to a lawyer afterward, J ust to
make sure, but he planned , every
bit of It himself, i; Ho told me ex
actly : what to say , and do, "and
what to expect. I wnt to Birch
wood, you. know, and bullied fath
er Into dropping the whole thing.
At that tense moment,' the absurd
ity ' of a whippet, bullying the
mighty G. Af, true though the
statement was. occurred to neither
of them. "And when I'd done it.
I telephoned from Winchenden to
Mr. Brazenose he was waiting in
Boston and he sent the. telegram
we'd fixed no in 'the morning. So
you see ' it was all for you you
and he together.'
. "Well, y du you got dad back
for me so we re even," he return
ed, furious because his vo-ice was
unmanageable. "That was bully
"But I owed you that!" she cried,
"I couldn't let such an awful
thing liappen to you on my
not after ill you'd done for.
for us, I mean.". Floundering in
unpremeditated personalities, she
made , hasty amenamem-
course, I know It wasn't for us
I mean not because you I under
stand perfectly that you don't like
girls. You' just" pitched in ana
helped us because It was fine
thing to do, and and because you
are like that."
"Oh, that was it was just be
cause tt looked like a good sport
ing proposition at first." : he ex
plained awkwardly, wishing with
all his sonld .that dad would come
and put an end to this; torture.
