CONSTRUCTION OF THE PORT
The Dalles Times-Mountaineer
takes" the position that the portage
road should be built under contract,
to relieve the state of the cost of
maintaining a superintendent during
construction of the road.
If the board of portage commission
ers, consisting of the governor, secre
tary of state and state treasurer, can
give sufficient time to thorough In
vestigation of the work, during the
progress of construction, to satisfy
them that the work is not being
slighted by a contractor aud the peo
ple defrauded by cheap methods, ma
ferial and labor, the contract plan la
But whatever plan Is adopted, there
must be substantial work done. This
:ls nbt the plaything of u day nor a
,year, but It Is to serve the Inland Em
pire for years, and Is the perpetual
property of the people of OreoD.
If strict supervision of the wor.t
oan be maintained by the state board.
Pil .-the jieople protected against
fraud, let It by contract. Hut the sal
ary of a , superintendent of construc
tion Is Insignificant, compared to the
loss that would be sustained by the
state, through poor workmanship,
poor material, unskilled labor and
In bidding for a contract of this
size the contractor often naturally
figures as los as possible, and In or
der to make a profit, is compelled to
cut down expenses, perhaps at the
cost of good work.
THE MURDERED FARMER.

Into a potato pit in the front yard,

In her deliberate crime alio has
shown the most fiendish traits imag

TO FIGHT COYOTES.
Following the repeal of the scalp
. bounty law by tho twenty-second leg
islative assembly, the sheepmen of
Lako county have made a law of their
They have agreed among them-
selves to pay two cents per head on
the total number of sheep owned, to
form a general fund, known as the
coyote scalp fund, and will employ
hunters to scour the ranges far and
near in search of the enemies of their
flocks, which the legislature spared.
On the present number of sheep in
Lake county, ?ti,00u will be raised at
two cents per head, and with this
sum ten rangers will be employed by
the sheepmen. These men will not be
paid per scalp, so there Is no proba
bility of scalps being Imported from
other states and counties. The coy
ote farm will be out of the question,
and the campaign against the coyote
will proceed upon strictly business
and economical lines.
This plan Is worthy of considera
tion by other localities. The stock
men themselves can handle the ques
tion yet the farming communities will
gradually contribute their share to
tho destruction of the coyote, by prl
It is a misfortune that the scalp
bounty law was abused. Justly exe
cuted, It was a blessing to Eastern
Oregon counties, but used as a graft,
It became a curse to the taxpayers.
ROOSEVELT ON THE SOUTH.
President Roosevelt has written a
long letter to Clark Howell, editor fo
the Atlanta Constitution, defining his
policy of federal appointment in the
Mr. Tloosevelt, on this occasion, is
more of u sentimentalist than a poli

held In the narrow channel of mere
vote getting diplomacy. He is try

theory of government, which has for
its motto, "All men up," not "some
men down." '
In the face of the white republi
cans of this South, he has appointed
negro after negro, and democrat after

fearlessly stepped into the ranks of
the opposing party and named some
able man for the federal position, in
spite of the imprecations and frantic,
efforts of his party bosses to the con
trary. He has defied the lash of the poli
tician, in his determination to give
the negro full recognition, so fur as
he deserved It. The policy of the
president, seems to be to reward
merit, and not to cater to political
"pull," in the South. He says that
his advisors In that section of the
United States have been ex-confeder

RUSSIA'S THANKSGIVING DAY.
Russia, like America, Is now to have
a national Thanksgiving day. Uy do
creo of the Holy Synod, of which the
cznr Is regarded ns tho heai, February
10 old stylo (March 3 new stylo), the
anniversary of the emancipation of
the peasants, Is heiealter to be cele
brated in the orthodox churches by
elaborate Thanksgiving services.
It is a striking and pleasant coincl
denco that the growth of freedom In
Russia In the modern sense of tho
word parallels In Important partlcu
lars its srowth In the United States
It was In 1S07 that the emperor, Alex
ander I freed the serfs In the lialtlc
provinces, while In the United Stntes
Jefferson was proposing a prohibition
of the slave trade, the first step In
the crusade which was to end In war
and the doom of slavery In tho land
To complete the parallel, It was In
1SG1, while this country was in the
throes of civil war over the question
of slavery, that Alexander 11 emancl
pated 22,000.000 human beings of his
empire. Such an example at that
time greatly strengthened the sent!
ment of enlightened Chrisfnidom in
favor of emancipation, and thus may
bo said to have made fo the cans'
ol freedom in America
The third Interesting parallel that
of a national Thanksgiving day is
the latest in tho historical series. Ilus
sia's Thanksgiving will naturally have
very different associations from those
of the day as observed In the United
States, hut the day will be celebrated
with perhaps oven hotter reason In
tho dominions of the czar. Freedom
is growing even in the land of tin
autocrat, and. most significant of all
will be encouraged by the national
observance to which church and state
are now committed. New York
"RACE SUICIDE" BY CHILD LABOR
Before tho assembly committee on
labor and Industries in Albany yester
day Indisputable testimony was of-
fered that the best Interests of the
state require tho further restriction
of child labor.
Not to speak of Its moral aspects,
tho Industrial employment of child
ren Is the gravest material waste.
Such (rilling sums as the little tollers
produce are gained at the expense of
their mature usefulness, for It is tho
common Huding of nil Investigations
of the subject that hard work too
early undertaken stunts the powers
and shortens the lives of tho vic
Child labor cuts tho sapling before
It can grow, gathers the fruit before
It ripens. It Is truly "race suicide" at
the call of greed, and the race must
restrict It or suffer the melancholy
consequences. New York World.
