He Came West to Have an Easier
Time, and Didn't Understand the
Still they come!
What are all the people that are
rushing Into Oregon and Washington
going to do for a living?
Every train from tho East brings
from a dozen to two or three hundred
people from tho East and Middle
States who are coming here, many of
them with the idea In their ncaas
thnt they can walk out hero anywhere
and settle on government land where
they can not only make n living, but
can make money from the start. This
Is a mistaken idea and unfortunately
the poor people coming who spent al
most the last cent they had to get
here, will And it out after it is too
late to do them nny good. Nebraska,
Missouri and Illinois are furnishing
the largest contingent of these home
seekers, although they are coming
from every state east of the Rockiesr
This morning the trains through
Pendleton were crowded with men,
women and children. Most of them
were going to Spokane nnd other
points along the O. IL & N. The tick
ets were purchased to Spokane and
from there they will branch out over
He Expected Too Much.
Among those looking for a place
where they could take up government
land and settle a large family where
they could make a living easier than
working in the factories of the East,
was a man by the name of w. H. car
ter. In talking to Mr. Carter this
morning he seemed to be a very in
telligent gentleman, but he was lino
the majority of those coming West.
He had been led to believe that a
good quarter section of wheat land
was lying near some town waiting es
pecially for him to settle ins tamny
on it and as soon as that was done
and the soil tilled by the strong arms
of his sons, it would blossom forth
and brhm fruit and grain in plenty
for the rest of their days. Mr. Carter
asked the reporter for the East Ore
gonian where he could got a report
of the board of Immigration and
where he could get information con
cerning the vacant land of this state.
He is a man of perhaps 52 or 63 years
of age, and he said he had put in all
his life at hard work for others and
recently made up his mind that he
had had enough of it, and wantet to
come West, where he could settle ou
a piece of government land and make
a living without working so hard H's
ticket was purchased for Spokane and
he stopped off here to Investigate a
little. This morning he left for Walla
.Wlalla, where he Is going again to
stop and Temain a short fcime and if
he finds nothing he will go on to the
end of his journey. He expressed
himself as being well pleased with
tne aimearance of the country sur-
Tounding Pendleton and said that he
Tesretted that he did not buy hi
ticket for "Portland instead of Spo
Vnnp.. However, he thought that If
he fbnad ndthlng to suit him in Wash

Some Are Posted.
While all .Qie people coming to the
Pacific Coast have not been misled,
and are not of the class spoken of
aDove, the ;greater majority are. Some
of them have the right Idea of the
country and come with money to buy
land and are going tto settle down to
a life nf raising grain or stock for the
market. This smaller proportion of
the -newcomers are a class that every
Westerner "will welcome with wide
open arms, as there are vast re
sources In rthe Pacific States for the
energetic, thrifty farmer and there Is
plenty of room for all that come.
Some ot them come with money to
brancn out In business of some kind
in town, lauy town property and will
generally help It to build up and
grow, while others come with money
to buv farms, or stock ranches and
will make substantial citizens. They
are seeking larger opportunities and
a place where Ihey can spread out.
For these there Is no better place
than Oregon, and Umatilla county
has room for many. Ten men out of
this class will do more lor the rapid
development of the couatry than 100
of the former class.
Walla Walla March 21. "Papa he
stayed In Seattle. Wo are going back
home. Ho didn't have enough money
to come with us and so he Is going
to stay until lie can make some." A
bright little boy made that answer to
a traveler yesterday on a Northern
Pacific east-bound train.
Tho car was crowded with worn
looking women and children but men
seemed strangely lacking, nnd when
a pitssenger queried a little fellow
with: "Where is your papa, my son?"
the child gave a startling answer.

There was no work. To the Sound

rapidly dwindling away. There, like

Too Many Promises.
"It may not sound very pleasant,
and perhaps some may say that the
story Is overdrawn," said the traveler
who related tho tale, "but It Is true,
nevertheless, and that story of ono
missruided family and their hopes is
but the story of hundreds of others.
Many a man will not be able to send
his wife and babies back to where
they can be cared for, and destitute,
many a forlorn little group will re
