grounds, public parks, cheerful
places where trees and grass abound.
As the East Oregonian has frequent
ly remarked, the little island be
tween Walter's mill race and theUma
tilla river, just below the Main
street bridge, is an ideal location for
a small park or recreation ground.
Here could be provided plenty of
shade and sward, plenty of water
for boating, bathing and swimming,
a lalte of considerable dimensions
and all the attractions of a resort
such as Pendleton needs. If a stock

these grounds fully $5,000 would be

question is entirely eliminated from
the bill and is left to be settled by
future legislation in congress. This
is what has been done by the amend
ed senate bill. That measure mere
ly permits natives to take up land
in plots of forty acres. It leaves the
question of corporation land .grants
for future legislation. It, however
prescribes that this legislation shall
be drafted by the Philippine Com
mission, and after being approved by
the president shall become law un
less disapproved by congress. Con
gress thus abdicates Its power of
land legislation, retaining only a po
tential veto. The house bill contains
the same specifications as to the
power of congress, but it permits the
commission not only to grant 40
acre plots, but also to grant lands in
tracts of 2000 hectares (about 5000
acres) to corporations on condition
that they shall at once operate the
land thus obtained.
It should be remembered that Gen
eral MacArthur, a vigorous support
er of the administration, testified
that the grant of large tracts of land
to corporations, no matter how lion
estly these might be administered.
would be disastrous both economical
ly and socially to the natives. We
believe, therefore, that all provisions
for corporation land grants should
be omitted from the final bill and be
relegated to future discussion as is
now done by tho senate bill. When
the matter comes up in tho future
the whole subject can bo gone into
on its merits. This is no more than
a prudent step of protection for the
Inhabitants of the Philippines to
whom this land rightfully belongs
and who ,may bo permitted the fu
ture enjoyment of economic oppor-,

for them. Above all, wo boliove that
