Few homesteads are being located
on the Echo irrigation reservation.
The rush that was anticipated has
failed to come to pass, to this date.
MntTClthstnniUntr the fact that five
tons of alfalfa hay can be raised each
year on every acre of that reserva
tion, which can be irrigated, settlers
are slow to exercise the last privilege
they possess, for acquiring land, un
der present conditions.
The reason for this hesitancy Is ap
parent. The Echo irrigation reserva
tion lands can be taken only by
homestead entry. The homesteader
must make residence upon and im
prove this land, In the usual way, al
though at present it is incapable of
supporting settlement. So far as the
possibility of cultivating the land,
and supporting a family upon It is
concerned, It might as well be in the
midst of the Arizona desert, as touch
ing shoulders with the rich 'Butter
Creek settlement, for without water
it is unfit for any use.
To make a home upon it, and keep
a family there for two or three years
while waiting for the slow process of
government irrigation to come to fru
ition, is out of the question. The
homestead law, just and equitable as
it is, can scarcely induce men to face
The government should be petition
ed for a ruling to cover such cases,
which would allow the settler to file
upon and hold his homestead claim.
:i on this character of land, without re-
quiring him to make actual residence

ments, on land that will not support
a family. In its native condition,
should be waived, nendine the pom.
jPletlon of irrigation works, upon the
land. Then If the government nban-
idoned the scheme, or for anv reason
failed to complete Its irrigation works
innocent homesteaders would not
lose the labor and improvements be
stowed upon the desert.

his nest royal auditor. President
; Francis is said to have met with ex-
traordinary success, and wherever he
went he obtained assurances of sup
port and co-operation.
It is such active, individual effort
which makes a great undertaking a
complete success. The directors of
the Lewis and Clark Fair have the
right to rely upon the co-operation of
the public, and of the press, but the
bulk of the work and of the responsi
bility must fall upon those to whom
the affair is especially entrusted.
Twenty years of faithful, tireless,
intelligent work performed in favor of
an isthmian canal by Senator Morgan
in the United States senate, is de
stroyed by one sweep of the hand of
the railroad corporations. The Amer
ican people are so blinded to their
true interests that they permit dem
agogues and hirelings to legislate for
them, Impose unnecessary burdens,
delay vital reforms, absorb public
funds by selfish laws, and yet tax
themselves and pinch on the neces
sitles of life to pay the bills.
The adoption by the woolgrowers of
regular sales davs. for their nroduct.
is one of the greatest developments
recorded in the sheep raising indus
try. Unity of purpose, unity of
strength, unity of proceedure, will
place the woolgrowers upon a finan
cial basis which no bull nor bear of
the market can overthrow. When
the wheatralser of Eastern Oregon,

union, fights the battles of his neigh

market, what few mortgages are vet

not confined to Dixie any longer. Like
a rising tide, this great national is
sue is climbing slowly but surely lu
