SOUND JUDGMENT DISPLAYED.
IS THE FIGHT OVER?
Do the citizens of Umatilla county
think the fight for irrigation ended
with the Portland convention? Do
they imagine that the oratory and
resolutions of that meeting was all

no further effort, no further work?
Are we done agitating and enthusing,
now that we have read the proceed

the death-like silence that now reigns
in many places that were storm cen

But a sad awakening will come to
the people of this county, ere they are
aware. The active agencies at work
in Baker, Crook, Grant and Malheur
counties, will lay enough practical ir

We will be too late with the details
of the magnificent plans that exist in

come in at the eleventh hour, and
find ourselves barred out from the

President Cohen, of the Commercial

on the sound judgment he displayed
in selecting the personnel of the so-

and deferred the matter for weeks.
he could not have made a choice that
meets all the high requirements or
this task in hand so fittuigly and
satisfactorily. From every conceiva
ble standpoint, the committee is equal
to the far-reachiug and important
business bearings of this question.
The arrangements so far have been
most satisfactory and perfect in de.

ed a stage where delicate and skill

business features which cannot be
handled by inexperienced men. and In

The success of the undertaking is
now assured. As a continuation of
the high character of former private'

Common honesty is a common
thing. The world Is full of men
whose word is as good as their bond.
But the Boston case Is more than
common honesty. It shows that some
