The wheat yield of the Athena dis
trict is so satisfactory that it is not
In order to mention this as an "off"
year. The reports from the harvest 1
field, showing returns of from 35 to j
55 bushels per acre, are not to be
classed with short crop rejiorts. Other
portions of the county may show a
slight shortage in the yield, but In
the true wheat belt, where the bulk
of the Umatilla county crop always
gTows. there is no serious decrease in
the usual yield. And what adds to
the good condition this year is the
fact that tlie price is 2i cents higher
than usual.
The Spokane Chronicle bids fare
well to the gambling fraternity which
has been put out of business In the
State of Washington, in the follow
ing manner, which applies to ever;
city in the West: "Take it all in all,
Spokane can well afford to say a long
farewell to the gambling dens.
There's plenty of honest use for the
laborer's wages, tho farm hand's sav
ings and the clerk's salary plenty of
good things for sale in the stores,
plenty of ks waiting for little
homes to lie built upon them, plenty
of room in the banks for more depos
its, plenty of chances for safe Invest
tmmtti that will help to lift the fel
low at the foot of the ladder up to the
level of the successful business man."
The county seat fight in Union
county brings to mind the fact that
tho pioneer aspect of the "West Is
passing away, and the permanency
of well organized and vsell regulated
government, suited to the conven
ience and needs of the people, is
succeeding the first efforts at state
building made by the pioneers. As
the country settles up and the cen
ters of population chaugs from one
locality to another. It becomes neces
sary to change the boundaries of
counties and states to meet the ail-'
vanclng needs of civilized society. I
Portions of different Eastern Oregon
counties have been annexed, added
to and taken from the original boun
daries, until the entire face of the
map has been changed. As new
towns and new settlements spring up
and new roads and conveniences are
established, it becomes u pari of
progress to change the seats of ((uni
ty government to suit the greatest
number of people. It is not all Jeal
ousy and selfish Interest that actu
ates these changes It is fate, pro
gress, or whatever you may call that
silent process which transforms the
Ince of the earth, ulways for the best.
The rocont Inlior troubles In con
noctlon with the govornnictit print
ing ofllce developed the fact tlmt un
like tho heads of other hurenits, the
government printer Is responsible
only to congress.
The Washington eorresirondunt for
the Chicago Uerord-Hornld says that
the president nor any cabinet ollleur
has any direct authority over the
public printer and that tho nearest
npproach !n the direction of placlnr;
him under the supervision of a cabi
net otllcer Is the Inw which requires
! him to furnish a bond to the secre-
tnrv nf tlm Intiirlnr
, It Is pointed out that the secretary
cannot say whom the public printer
, ' '
shall employ, how many hours a day
I n,g cmpIovc8 slm work wlint ho
I shull pay or how he shall manage
! them. In consress alone rests this
1 authority and In the committees on
j printing In the senate and house
recommend enactment of a law
j will place the printing ofllee directly ,
under the supervision of the secre-1
tnry of commerce nnd labor, but it Is ,
pointed out that Senator Piatt, of i
', New York, is chairman of the senate
, j committee on printing and that he Is
1 not likely to surrender without a j
struggle tlie opportunity placed in '
his hands by this chairmanship to ox- j
j ercise much influence in the manage-,
, ' incut of an Institution that employs ,
j many hundreds of men and women j
I who. In a greater or less degree, rep- j
I resent votes In the districts from
which they are appointed. j
As there has been no occasion to j
regulate the manner of employing the ;
printers In the government ofl'ce. be- i
' j fore, it has not dawned upon the poll-1
1 j ticians that this one graft Is beyond 1
' j their control. j
j I Now, thnt tlie fact Is brought out.
the president. It is alleged, will have J
the law changed.
This is in keeping with the spoils
I system. Whatever is, belongs to the j
power in office, anil no congress lias 1
a right to interfere. This policy has j
despoiled the nostofllce department. I
the war and navy departments, and I
w) despoil tlie entire government
service if not chacked.
Congtess is the only natural etisto- j
dian of the public printing office. It '
should not be made a plaything of a .
cabinet officer, nor the president of
tne United Stntes. It should lie kept j
aloof trom political traffic, and all Its !

The president has enough to do,
and there are now enough grafts at
the disposal of the heads of depart
ments. There should be no new op
portunities for corruption. nianufac-
tured by congress. If congress does
anything with the matter, it should .
strengthen its own supervision of the !
public printing office. The depart-1
meni of labor and commerce is now
the abject tool of the money iKiwer,
and its reports, statistics and find-i
lugs are manufactured by corKirate '
When the last congress abolished '
the department of labor statistics, j
its only object wns to get rid of Car- j
roll D. Wright, and place the matter j
of labor statistics in the hands of a ,
man who could not be prevailed upon i
to hide the truth.
By merging this important depart
ment in the department of commerce
it made the subject of labor statis
tics a secondary matter and placed
their collection in the hands of hired
"experts," who oscillate between the
management of some corporation and
a chief position in the United States
The public printing office should
not be prostituted to the interests of
grafters. It is one of the most vital
departments In the government, and
should be free fro intrade, traffic or
political use.

Harvest bauds in companies of lull
nnd 200. were sent out from employ
ment agencies in the states adjacent
to Kansas to various points in the
wheat belt. Just before the harvest
some farmers found themselves need
ing more help. Then the fnrmer used
all the guile and promises nt his
command to induce men to stop with I
him Instead of journeying to the pulnt
to which they were ticketed. Harvest
hands who ventured on to the pint 1
form of some railway station while
tlie engine took water have actually
been kidnaped by the farmers, who
used force to hold them until the train
had gone.

acres of wheat always secures Ills full
