THURSDAY, JULY 3, 1902.
The official returns of the recent
election show that Oregon is over
whelmingly republican, by at least
15,000 plurality. Every county in Or
egon gave a plurality for the four
leading republican candidates except
governor. The republican candidate

to carry his part of the burden he
throws a double load upon the shoul

that shirking becomes general and
nothing is done. Here we have the
reason why there was no celebration
in i'enaieton this year. And next
year if each Pendletonlan will do his
share, contribute in both time and
money, we can have a rousing cele

importance to the people ot the Phil
ippines and to ourselves. In a recent
Btatemont as to the provisions of the
Philippine bill on the Biibject Sena
tor Lodge said: "It provides ade
quate and comprehensive land laws
which have been woefully lacking
during and since the time Spain lost
supremacy there. Under the laws of
Spain there was. no such thing ns a
title to land. The occupants of the
land exorcised no ownership to It, and
ns a result they were constantly in a
stnte of turmoil. Of the 72,000,000
acres of land there only 5,000,000
acres were held by private individu
als. The remaining 68,000,000 acres
were held by Spain. Under this bill,
homesteads of 40 acres each are to
be given to the nntives. and they will
have n clear title to the land. The
150,000 acres of land which the friars
hold, which is the best agricul
tural land on the . islands,
is to be purchased, and this is to be
disposed of to those who now occupy
these lands. This must necessarily
bring about better conditions in the
way of wages to the Filipinos, and in
other important respects."
There is little doubt that congress
will agree to terms thnt may be
found satisfactory to the church nnd
to'the Philippine government. Hard
ly anything we could do will more po
tently conduce to the welfare of the
islands thnn settling land titles mid
giving the industrious and thrifty
among the people a chance to estab
lish homes of their own upon lands
that are theirs in fee simple. It is
also in the interest of the friars to
get rid of the lands, which they can-j
not profitably use under present con
ditions. Such being the case it may
be readily believed that the two par
ties are already agreed upon the es
sential points in negotiation. The
land will be sold, the United States
will guarantee the payment, and the
old strife between the Filipinos nnd
the friars will end nmicably nnd in a
manner beneficial to all concerned.

take up too much of their time de
bouncing the republican party when
they could use It to better advantage
In doing something themselves. The
democrats in congress appear to make
very poor use of their opportunities.
Too many of them are from the south,
where indolence and ease creep into
men's bones and where lawyers make
a profession out of politics and fol
low It as an avocation.
There are quite a number of busi
ness men In Pendleton who think that
thece should have been a Fourth of
July celebration here this year. If
these business men had thought a lit
tle harder along this line about six
Tveeks ago they could have had a cel
ebration. There was nothing In the
-way of it, but a little thankless work,
which they could have performed in
-their own interests. These business
-men surely do not think that a cele-'b-atlon
is possible without work and
they should be willing to perform
their full share of it, not expecting
others to carry the whole burden, as
In other years. If those who are in
terested in Fourth, of July celebra
tions will take the initiative In the
wrk of arranging for them, Pendle
ton will never be without a celebra
tion. But when they Bit down and
expect others to make the entire sac
rifice, both in time and money, we
-will .have to get along without a cel.
ebratlon frequently. Every business
man, property owner and citizen in'
Pendleton needs to have an Interest
da Buch things and contribute to their
congress. Thus the governor is In
structed "to take up the subject ten
tatively with the ecclesiastical supe
riors, who must ultimately determine
the friars' course of conduct, and en
deavor to reach at least a basis of ne
gotiation along lines which will be
satisfactory to them and to the Phil
ippine government, accompanied by
a full understanding on both sides of
the facts and the views and purposes
of the parties to the negotiation, so
that when congress shall have acted
the business may proceed to conclu
sions without delay."
