TTE can see where we will be called on again this fall to

dairy products. Last year the potato question ended in a

Rivalry is still keen between Bend and Klamath Falls,
tne capitals of these inland empires. Periodically Judge Saw
yer aims a barbed shaft to the south. Now the usually ur
bane and genteel Klamath Falls Herald dips the arrows in
poisoned perfume and shoots them northward. Under the
taunting title of "Paradise Regained in Oregon" the Herald
empties its quiver as follows ; and we await with wonder and
awe the rejoinder from the Bend Bulletin :
"There is a happy land bordering ours where gentle peo
ple dwell within the lines of their own country contentedly be
lieving they possess an un publicized paradise. It is Deschutes
county to the north, where the world ends beyond its boun
daries." "Oregon is a favored state, and Deschutes the most favored
county of Oregon's thirty-six. Up there are potatoes of the finest
quality too fine, for there are less fortunate folks who would
put those Gems in foreign sacks for deliberate misrepresenta
tion. "There are no annoyances from insects. Cows in all regions
but the Deschutes are merely contented; but in Deschutes happy
bovines live as they would live in heaven.
"There are no vicious snakes, and even the wee garter snake
has been expelled from this Central Oregon Eden. No mosqui
toes whine through the summer evening, and there is no poison
oak to chaff the legs of barefooted inhabitants.
"Truly there is a primitive satisfaction and security In
Deschutes. And its good people don't hesitate to make it known
through the excellent and effective medium of the Bend Bul
letin. "God bless Deschutes county. May it always continue to
roll along quietly, blissfully lost in the dream of its own well-being."
We ought" really to admonish the contentious brothers
of the guild. There is no need for regaining paradise in
Oregon. It has always been here right in the Willamette

Labor Question Obtrudes
THEY have handed General Johnson a hot poker in the
matter of recognition of trade unions. Organized la
bor sees in NRA the opportunity of getting unions estab
lished in the great industries like steel, which have un
iformly resisted trade organization. In submitting codes,
these mass production industries have claimed the privilege
of refusing to recognize trade unions, while labor organizers
have fought putting any such doctrine in the codes. The auto
men seem to have succeeded ; but the steel code was sent
back for revision.
Meantime labor union efforts have been directed to
ward organizing mass production industries not as crafts
but as industries ; a radical departure from the former prac
tice of strict definition of crafts.
The language of the act preserves rights of workers,
to organize and to bargain collectively; but it does not re
quire the executives to recognize outside unions. So the is
sue is put up to Gen. Johnson ; and he is sure to be cussed
whichever way he rules.
One way of looking at it, if the government is going to
step in and regulate a man's business as to number of em
ployes and wages, there would be little need for labor un
ions. The other way is, that the unions will seize the oppor
tunity to entrench themselves in the mass production indus
tries and build up unionism without regard to general in
dustrial 'recovery.
The difficulty seems to lie in telescoping all our indus
trial problems of wages, prices, etc. for solution in the
course of a few weeks. Things are moving fast; but we
can hardly expect to usher in the rnillenium in four years,
the democrats will insist on four more at least.
A Washington Canal
FROM the days of the early settlers in the territory of
Washington there were proposals made for a canal from
the Columbia river across to Puget Sound, linking Shoal-
water- bay and Grays harbor. In the early days travel was
by boat by the Columbia to the mouth of the Cowlitz, thenr
up the Cowlitz to an easy portage to Nisqually on the sound.
Opening of roads permitted stage travel; later the railroad
served the needs.
Now under .enthusiasm for expenditures on public
- works the canal idea is having a revival. The estimated cost
is $33,000,000. Government engineers have turned in an
adverse report but local interests are hoping for a reversal.
The practicabiliy of the canal i3 very questionable.
There is comparatively little traffic between the Columbia
river and Puget Sound, for the reason that communities
on both bodies of water produce the same goods and im-
'." port the same commodities. Both export to national and
world markets lumber and agricultural products of similar
varieties. Both import fabricated articles. The principal
lanes of traffic are from the northwest to California and
cto other domestic and foreign ports by water; and over
land by rail to the east. The intermediate movement is not
heavy in proportion.
The canal might accommodate logs and lumber pro
duced, in the tributary territory; but that volume "would not
seem sufficient to justify spending thirty-three millions.
even if itcomes from Uuncje Sam. About the only exclusive
tonnage would be shipping a few lugs of cranberries from
the Ilwaco bogs to Seattle; or some Willapa oysters to 'fa-
coma; and these would doubtless continue to move by truck
and rail.
The Washington canal seems a revival of a dream long
since outgrown. r

thing to me. Internally. I mean.
Why do you think your path was
made so smooth in the studio ?
? Leni released her hand. "Please,"
she whispered. "Isn't everything
difficult enough as it lsT"
"It Is only fair that you know,"
Gerstenfield continued relentlessly.
"When a man feels as deeply about
a woman as I do about you that
man has rights that cannot be de
nied. When I talk like this to you,
I'm breaking down everything that
I've built up around myself. I'm
like a soldier throwing away his
He paused and Leni attempted
to speak but found her throat tight.
She stood gazing at him for
nearly a minute. Above her misty
eyes the finely pencilled arch of
her eyebrows drew together. She
was scarcely breathing and her lips
trembled a little. At the second
effort she found words.
"Are you trying: to tell me .
that you love me . . ."
She looked at him in amazement
and saw a man that was almost
For the first time she took stock
of him in the matter of appearance.
He looked thin, almost ilL Under
his exceptional eyes the skin was
white and bluish. There were lines
in his face as though etched by
acid. Yet he was not old. Forty at
the outside, perhaps thirty-five.

for twenty years. There s some
thing about you that rests me.

Last night when I saw you up
there on that screen it was the big
gest kick I ever had in my life.
Figure it out for yourself."
Slowly Leni began to forget her
self began to forget Lucky Cava
naugh as unconscious pity for the
man showed in her face.
There was something shameful
and embarrassing in his plight.
She had known many men and
seen them suffer but she had never
seen a strong man reveal his weak
ness before. It was a sorrowful
thing to see his self -power melt
that way. No woman ever before,
Leni was certain, had wrenched
such a confession from him. His
own sufficience, his overcoming of
all soft sentiment, had been his
proud flag flying at the masthead.
The thing for her to do. of
course, was to push him away
That was what a true-hearted
woman would be supposed to do.
But even in Hollywood, women
are still a prey to a weakness dat
ing back to the beginning of the
race. It began to stir in Leni's
hreast, gently and kindly and in
finitely tender . . . the mysterious,
overwhelming quality known as the
maternal instinct.
Gerstenfield stood motipnlessly
before her, emptied of all that he
could 'say in words. From force of
habit, he snapped up his wrist and
looked at the watch upon it. He was
due back on the lot.
This was the Hollywood of Her
man Gerstenfield. Lore ground un
der the heel of career.
The man had actually bared his
soul and was in haste to get back
to the studio.
Lent looked at him with misted
eyes. He was harried, driven, con
sumed by the relentless dominance
of the studio. Twelve, sixteen, eigh
teen hours his working day.
No wonder he was cold and harsh
and arid!
Every normal thing of life, she
thought, has passed him by. He
knew nothing of living of lore,
aughter, companionship. :
Among all the great and good
gifts of God to the world, Gersten
field stood empty - handed and
alone. ...
"You poor man!' she said softly.
He was looking around for his
hat. When he spoke his words were
dry, crisp and nervous.
WelL that's settled! Well talk
it over again sometime. Glad you've
come to your senses. Get that fel
low off your mind, and be at the
studio by three o clock sharp I
The amazing transformation left
Leni stunned. The maternal instinct
began to whither efen as it started
to bloom. Gerstenfield again was
his old self, giving orders and dic
tating lives. When in this mood his
words had the rattle of hail,
Leni had the feeling that she was
caught in the vortex of a -whirl
"But I'm not going out to the
studio," she said, her head spinning
"Why should I?"
"We start shooting the new pic
ture next Monday," Gerstenfield
shot at her. "Publicity department
is making new stills of you this
afternoon. We're going to have a
reading of the story at five o'clock,
and youll have to be at the ward
robe department for fittings before
that. The story ain't right yet and
we're going to battle it out if it
takes all night."
"But I thought the story was per
feet," Leni said. "Wingate told
"We threw the whole thing In
the ash can this morning. I got
four brand new writers in at eleven
o'clock this morning and by noon
they had already run into trouble.
That's what we're battling about.
You're a French girl on this Amer
ican gunboat running up the Yang
tse river in China, It's in a blasted
mess now but well get it straight
ened out."
She heard the last of this as he
was disappearing toward the curb
where his chauffeur waited with the
big black car.
In any other walk of life the man
would have been mildly insane but
in this maniacal business he was
rated a genius. No one thought him
even eccentric, and he was reveren
tially imitated by a hundred lesser
men. Host of these wore their hair
rumpled, cultivated a burning stare
and radiated weariness as though
from over-work."None, however,
succeeded in duplicating his brain
When he had gone, Leni pressed
her hands to her temples, hoping
her head would clear.
If she stayed in the pictures she
would become herself, in time, as
zig-zag as, Gerstenfield. Life would
be angular and jerky, shot through
with all manner of eccentricities
like those modern paintings in the
smart art shops. " ' -
The far-off public, knowing
nothing of the real Hollywood,
could not possibly imagine the in
credible confusion out of which
the talking pictures emerged so
splendidly.. The life of the studio
goes on with Irresistible gusto and
frantic activity. Except for the
anitors, everyone was a creature
of temperament.
It is a swarming hive in which
none of the bees think in a straight
line and whosoever gets within
the hive falls into the bewilder-
log rhythm as If bewitched. Even
tually,, and this truly is a miracle,
the jig-saw puzzle takes form and
becomes a thing of living beauty.
None of tne bees can escape and
none of them wants to escape.
It was the swarm-Instinct that
now made Leni remember the pro
foundly satisfying hum of activity.
the beating of wings in which she
had her part.
Gerstenfield had reminded her
that she was a part of all this.
Lucky Cavahaugh love had
drawn her outside her orbit, but
the counter-pull was terrific. It was
stronger than she realized. But it
was not stronger than love. . . .
Leni pulled her mind off Gersten
field and the studio.
Her knees felt rubbery, but this
was forgotten as she picked up the
newspaper and, forcing herself to
calmness, finished reading the story
about Cavanaugh's arrest.
The details were scant and un
A woman, Annette Santos, had
been shot to death in his apart

former sweetheart of Cavanaugh.
The shooting occurred about
half pat three o'clock in the morn

building an hour earlier saying
she had a date with Cavanaugh.

So he went directly from me
last night to another woman,"
thought Leni. "I cannot believe he
did it deliberately. It is strange
but I do not feel Che slightest pang
of jealousy. It is ridiculous to ex
pect that Lucky Cavanaugh would
shoot a woman. The police are
idiots to arrest him."
She went into another room and
got police headquarters on the
telephone. Her voice was cool and
Let me speak to Detective Mul-
rooney, please."
"Mulrooney's not here now."
said the man at headquarters.
"Who's calling?"
"Never mind." said Leni. "IH

Marker at the grave
of "Governor" Gale:
(Continuing from yesterday:)
The oath of office was prepared
at the July B, 1843, meeting by
Jason Lee, Rev. Harvey Clark and
Rev. David Leslie. It was admin
istered to the members of the ex
ecutive committee-elect, and to
the recorder (secretary of state),
supreme judge, treasurer, and the
"a "a
The members of the executive
committee were given a certificate
of office. It read: "This certifies
that David Hill, Alanson Beers,
and Joseph Gale, were chosen the
executive committee of the terri
tory of Oregon, by the people of
said territory, and have taken the
oath for the faithful performance
of the duties of their offices as
required by law. George W. Le-
Breton, Recorder. Wallamet, Ore
gon Territory, July 5th, 1843."
The certificate must have been
written at the Jason Lee mission,
and not at Champoeg, for the lo
cation of the mission was then
generally designated as Wallamet.
It was, as every reader of this
column knows, 10 miles below the
site of Salem. The mission site,
or something lees than 10 acres
of it, now belongs to the people
of Oregon, in the trusteeship of
the Willamette university. That
point will be the shrine of a great
pilgrimage next year, in the cen
tenary celebration of the coming
of Jason Lee and his little party.
arriving there Oct. 6, 1834. A
covered wagon on auto wheels is
now being arranged for, to start
next spring for Salem, Oregon,
and to follow the route of Jason
Lee and his party from New Eng
land to the Missouri river, and
thence over the Old Oregon Trail,
as it later came to be called or
an approximation of it.
The original oath of office was
changed, as most readers know,
by the provisional government
legislature of 1845. The new
oath was prepared by Jesse Ap
plegate, and it read: ' I do sol
emnly swear that I will support
the organic laws of the provision
al government of Oregon, so far
as they are consistent with my du
ties as a citizen of the United
States or a subject of Great Bri
tain, and faithfully demean my
self in office; so help me God."
The original oath had been
changed by the insertion of the
words, "or a subject of Great Bri
tain." The proposition to Insert
the quoted words gave great of
fense to some Americans. The
members of the little legislature
of 13 members who opposed it
put up a hot fight. How close
was the vote? How aear did the
pages of history fall short of re
cording the events of a third war
between the United States and
Great Britain? By a majority of
one. Here was the vote:
Against: Barton Lee of Cham
poeg (Marion) county, H. A. G.
Lee, W. H. Gray and Hiram
Straight of Clackamas, David Hill
of Tualatin, and John McClure of
Clatsop 6.
For: Robert Newell, J. M. Gar
rison and M. G. Foisey of Cham
poeg county, now Marion; M. M
McCarver and Isaac W. Smith of
Tualatin county, and Jesse Apple-.
gate and Abijah Hendricks of
Yamhill county 7.
The changed oath was meant by
Applegate as the prelude to his
endeavor to secure the allegiance
to the provisional government of
the officers of the Hudson's Bay
company, and thus the mutual
support and the like mutual pro
tection of American and British
subjects. The strategy succeeded.
Jesse Applegate was wise beyond
his day and generation. He was
miles above the narrow dissenters
who sought to block his move. In
the language of CoL . Nesmith in
an' address at one of the meetings
of the Oregon Pioneer associa
tion, Jesse Applegate was the
noblest Roman of them alL"
As the reader noted in yester
day's article of this series, Col.
Nesmith . said that on the arrival
of the Gale party with their herds
in 1843, "the monopoly in stock
cattle came to an end in Oregon."
U b
The student of Oregon history
will agree. But he will bark his
memory back to 1836-7, when
William A. Slacum, representing
President Andrew Jackson, arriv
ed In Oregon; was met Jan. 13.
1837, by Jason Lee, at Champoeg,
and, four days later, at that place,
organized the famous Willamette
Cattle company, Lee and Slacum
subscribing $500 each, and Dr.
McLoughlin, later, $800. And
how the settlers took all the stock
In the company they could: how
Slacum took Ewing Young, man
ager, and P. L. Edwards of the
Lee mission, treasurer, and Lawr
ence Carmichael, James H.
O'Neal, George Cay, Calvin Tib
bets, John Turner, Dr. W. J.
Bailey, Webley Hauxhurst, and
Francis D u p r e and another
French Canadian settler named
Ergnette, 11 in all, on his' ves
sel, the Loriot, to California,
where they bought mission cattle
from the Mexican government,
stolen by that government from
the old missions there. How this
purchase was accomplished after
fearful delays and trips from, Yer
ba Buena to Monterey, to. Santa
Barbara, to Santa Cruz, San Jose,
etc., and -finally tne herd of over
800 wild longaorns was headed
north, and, after nine months of
terrible travail and danger land

subscriptions and labor of the
men bringing them, the latter at

The culmination of that enter- i
prise was the first one to break
the cattle monopoly of the Hud- ?
son's Bay company in Oregon;
the greatest influence of the time
in rendering the settlers of early
Oregon independent and prosper-
ous. Cows had been S200 in Ore
gon, and not a cow to be bought. 5
The Hudson's Bay company's pol
icy was to loan cows, taking the
increase for the rent, but refus
ing to sell on any terms. .
S V w
Bancroft's writer said of the
success of the enterprise: "The
great object of the WiUamette
settlers was accomplished, and an
era opened In I colonial history ,
which rendered them in no small
measure independent of the fur
company," meaning the Hudson's
Bay company.
But, three years later, and
three years before the Gale stock
came, the Hudson's Bay company
itself, in 1840, obtained a permit
in Mexico to drive out from Cali

The reader has noted that Re
corder LeBreton called this Ore- i
gon Territory in his certificate of
election of the first executive
committee. It was often termed a
colony, etc. It was not Oregon

was made a territory by congress.
