Dueled at Pendleton postoflbe as second
class matter
Socially, the American woman
Is the freest in the world. If
she will, she may now cnoose
her education, her marriage, nor
career. She Is still much more
hampered than Is man In gain
ing these rights, hut she will
find public opinion with her
when she makes a stand for
them. Her first part on the pro
gressive program, therefore, is
to take advantage of and to
preserve and extend these liber
ties. Too many still cling to
the "Doll's House." never de
veloping in themselves separate
characters. These jeopardize
tho pAsltlon gained for women
by the almost superhuman ef
forts of the brave pioneers.
Gertrude Itanium. In Hoyce's
Cassius M. Clay is dead. In all its j
varied and picturesque characters the
South has produced none more er-;
ratic ami extraordinary than this
man. Able, cultured, brilliant, he
was yet handicapped by weaknesses ;
tuat well nigh spoiled the effect of all '
Ills splendid accomplishments.
As a comparison in the growth of
different sections of Eastern Oregon, !
the school population of liakor conn-1
ty has decreased 28 since 1902. Willie
that of Umatilla county has increased
3 17, and Umatilla county has no Mor
mons, either, while liakor lias a
large settlement of these school build
ers. Tlie next Investigation in the post-1
otlice department will lie directed to i
the cost of transportation of the mnll 1
ami the del-ills nf th inrnimm I
and the details of thOM. enormous
contracts. It Is estimated that tho
expense of hauling the mull by the j
rallroads is $30,000,000 n year more i
than it should be, to allow legitimate
profits on the work. If this tact is
borne out by the Investigation, it will
wither result In a cheapening of rates
or an overwhelming sentiment in ja
vor of government ownership of rail
roaiW. No wonder postage remains
at 2 cents, when such steals have to
be met.
Dr. James Wlthyconibe, of the Or
egon Agricultural College, has issued
u now bulletin on leguminous forage
plants, and one of Its most valuable
chapters Is the one dealing with al
falfa raising. He says to Insure a
gooil start of this plant on new land,
it is absolutely necessary to inocu
late the now soli with tlie alfalfa bac
teria, by sprinkling at least 100
pounds of soil Irom an old alfalfa
field upon tho newly prepared field,
before wedlng. There is a nutriment
In old airalfa soil which Is absent in
now land and which Is necessary to
the growth of tho plant. The hullo
tin Is highly Instructive and should
be road by every farmer in Oregon.
The state board of building super- j that they are brought up with the
visors has saved tho people $4,000 on 1 1 iris and under the influence of wo
a four-vear light contract, by a little j '10 of refinement, education and en-
ir'iv nnrnmti vnnnf mnn 111 nm-

years the Salem Light &. l'ower Com
puny has charged Its own price for
lighting tho state Institutions anil
bullilliiKB. (Jovernor Chamberlnln
this year announced that some plain
business rules would be applied to
the pui chase of llfiht, and the sealed
bid system was invoked. As a result
the cost of lighting the stato institu
tions for the next four years will
cost the people 33 per cent less than
over before for tho samo peilod. The
light company greatly desired to
close a ten-year contract at still low
er rates than those secured, but tho
board declined to sign for longer than
four yours, leaving tlio way opon for
u state electric light plant at tho oml
of that time, This discloses thu uttor
illahonesty anil grafting of former ail
ministrations In conducting tho
state's linslnoss.
Charles Hedges, sniierlntenilent of
tho free ilellvory system of tho post
olllee department, has heen sunininr
lly illsnilsseil, on the charge of falsi
fying his diary and for loaning Ills
transportation privileges to unauth
orized persons. This Is the first dis
missal from tho service since the
president returned homo from his
Western tour, and the department is
shuddering to think how near the
head of the postal system, tho rot
teness and crookedness is being ox
posed. Tho next to fall may bo one
of the highest ofllelals, according to
ovKlenco slowly collecting. The
people are amazed at the opon and
I llngrant vinlntloii of rules anil lioth
lug that happens hereafter will be
I much of a surprise. Tho only ques
i tlon now is how to guard against fu
ttnu frauds. Civil service, political
I preferment and favoritism have all
I been tried as means of securing able,
honest men. A low sovoro penalties
might check the corruption.
The Inland Empire Is waiting in
suspense for the construction of the
portage road. Tills one improvement
means almost as much to tho pro
ducers of tlie Kastem Oregon, Wash
ington and Idaho, as did tho con
struction of tho rail lines to tho coast
As an evidence of the keen interest
felt in the subject outside of Oregon,
the following pertinent editorial ftom
the l.owlston Tribune, Is a lair e.v
presalon of the sentiment of Idaho
and Washington: "The announce
ment that the portage railway around
tlie only obstruction to navigation
between l.owlston and the sea, to bo
built by the Stato of Oregon, may be
completed and In Deration by Feb
ruary 1st. Is great news for this
country. With an Independent steam-1
er like the Ininaha In the l.owlston
trade, the freight rale situation would
be solved. The steamer could carry

up at Its own price, regardless of
rates fixed by the railroad combina
tion, and more of such steamers
would be built If tralllc enough was
' afforded. The only obstacle now is
tho one thai the news report says
will be overcome by February 1st.
This being so, it means a vast change
in conditions in this country, and
there Is no reason why It should not
be so. It ought to mean an tho things
this country hopes for."
