"I know a man that mostly wins
at cards. I know a man that
mostly loses. He says It's Ills
luck. All right. I know a man
that works hard and Is gcttln'
rich, and I know another that
works hard and Is gettln' poor.
Ho says It's his luck. All right.
Call it luck. I look around and
see folks movln up or movln'
down, winners or losers every
where. All luck, of course, but
since folks can he horn so differ
ent In their luck, whore is your
quality? No, sen! Coll your
failure luck, or call It laziness,
wander around the words as you
will, prospect all yu' mind to,
and you'll come out nt the same
old trail of Inequality." Owen

hours Is not all nf tho educational
process. Pendleton la most fortunate
In having a corps of teachers, whose
work of adding to the class-room
training, by the use of school orches
tras, theatrical entertainments, liter
ary programs nnd Journalism, through
the school Journal, has mnde Pendle
ton the leading educational center of
Eastern Oregon. The people appre
ciate highly the educational Ideal
which Is being attained here.

Russia 'Is the pack mule for political

Whenever the Russian government
feels like administering a brutal kick

selected as the victim.
The Oregonlan, In speaking of the
proposed Southern Oregon forest re
serve, says: "There seems to he a
prospect that as a result of the crea
tion of the forest reserve In South
western Oregon the state will have
some 40,000 acres of base to sell. If i jalj ,S(rct s estimated nt 7,2fi

Railroads accidents are almost in
vnrlnbly accredited by the press re
ports to the carelessness of employes.
It press writers were compelled to
benr In mind ns many vitnl rules of
conduct, as those in charge of the
passenger trains of the country, there
would he much less Inclination to
jump at conclusions.
The awarding of the city printing
hoped that Governor Chamberlain will
find a way to secure the entire ad
vantage to the school funds, nnd not
let the base be gobbled up by the lieu
land ring, which has had the favors
of so many administrations in the
past." It Is certainly time that the
citizens and press of Oregon were
awake to the needs of the public
school fund. If Oregon school lands
had been sold for something near
their value In the past, the 10-mlll
school levies that are now Imposed
upon tnxpayers, would not be a part
of the records.

The county court must not forget

and is ready to vote for still another
to accommodate tho Increasing school
population. The IlolHe Statesman
says: "W have to make provision
for schools; the present buildings are
overcrowded and the board cannot
necommodate all the children asking
admission. It would be a very great
mistake to permit such conditions to
continue. They would grow much
worse before another year. Therefore
the matter should be settled now."
The gathering together of the del
egates from Oregon's labor forces In
a public convention, reminds the close
observer that this state is taking on
the metropolitan robes. It is no long
er an unorganized frontier. Tho great
industries nro assuming a symmetri

riches of mine, field and factory are
devising means of betterment nnd

prostitute It to the uses of retaliation
It must be handled with care, for
Its adoption Is the greatest forward
step in the history of the state and
upon Its success In Oregon will de
peml the fate of the measure in other
states. Tlie people must use it can
tiously. It Is not a toy. but one of
tlie most potent engines of popular
government ever conceived by man.
Speaking of It the Oregon Daily
Journal makes the following perti
"The Incorporation into our state
constitution of tlie Initiative and ref
erendum provision wns a practical ap
plication of the theory that the most
wholesome check upon unwise legis

opportunity for the direct expression

"Relievers in the initiative and tlie

WHEAT CROP OF INDIA IN 1902-03.
According to tlie second general
memorandum on the wheat cop of
India for the season of 1902-03 the con
dition of the crop In the United Prov
inces is so favorable that a full yield
Is estimated for the the eastern divis
ions and Oudh, and 90 per cent of a
normnl crop for the three western di
visions; but in the Punjab nnd the
Northwest Frontier provinces the
yield on unlrrlgated land, except In
the submontane districts, Is likely to
be poor, unless rain falls verj- soon.
The excellence and extent of the
crop In the northern districts ot the
central provinces make up for tho de
ficiency in the southern districts, and ,
the estimated average yield for the,
whole area Is 105 per cent of the nor-i
mill. The estimates for Rengal are
per cent of the normal.
