There is cause for Pendleton to 1
happy and in the mood to celebrate
Labor Day. Four excellent brick
buildings, and about 20 handsome
dwellings have been completed this
season, and foundations for one of
the finest lodging houses in Eastern
Oregon are now being laid. If pros
perity and abundance of work are
causes for celebration, Pendleton has
a yell coming.
Justice is swift in Oregon. A negro
who sandbagged a Portland merchant
this week, was located, arrested, tried,
convicted, sentenced and lodged in
the penitentiary for six years, in less
than -IS hours after committing the
crime. This is a serious check o 1 the
hold-up business in Portland. A lit
tle more of this swift brand or Jus
tice will stop robberies, on Front
street, in daylight at least.
The Clark silver cup. offered for the

gatlon Congress, belongs by right of
merit, to Umatilla county. Will it
be brought home, or will Utah cap-i

Is so Insignificant, that It should not
be a barrier. Where are those en
thusiastic Milton irrlgatlonlsts who
are so proud or the fruit records of
their locality? Here is an opportuni
ty to score a point against all the
West. Send for that cup.

flicting the Oregon farmer. It the
government would build some good
roads in some of the Western Mates,
as a nucleus for a general good road
movement, it would be much more ap
propriate, than to pay out so much
money for agents, whose only service
consists in traveling over the countT

will put some of these "experts" to

The socialists of Anaconda, Mon
tana, carried the city election last
spring, and took the offices occupied
formerly hr their employers. There
were contests over some of the offices
and the employes or tho smelters tsero
arrayed apalnst their employers and
won the cases against them, and are
now running the eiiy government.
Thcre have been some radical
changes in the mode of conducting
municipal affairs, and the smelter
and mining men are dissatisfied wltt
the rule of the worklngmen, and now
in order to bring about a change,
have declared that active socialists
will not be employed in the works,
hoping by this means to drive them
out'of the city. The country has
reached a great crisis in industrial
progress, if a man must pass a satis
factory political examination before
he can get a job. No wonder socialism
is arrowing. The way to make it suc
cessful. Is to employ just Euch meth
ods, wherever a socialist ts found in
There is a growing sentiment in 'he
West in favor of the repeal of all the
land laws, except the straight home
stead law. The abuse of the timber
and stone act. and the vast tracts ac
quired by corporations, under the va
rious tews that have aided in dimin
ishing the public domain, have forc
ed the people to demand protection
for the remaining area of public
land. The actual homesteader has
dmWI of the remaiains land, and it
?oems that title should be confined
to the one law, in order to insure a
settler for every future filing. It Is
quite important that the coming ir
rigation congress take action on this
subject, and petition the national
congress to repeal the timber and
stone, and the desert land acts. The
speculative period has almost strip
ped the country of good land, and
now the remnant of the once magnifi
cent domain should be reserved tor
actual settlement. It Is as necessary
to save the desert to the people -K
it is to save the forests and streams
Since Oregon passed the law ac
cepting the provisions of the Carey
Act, there have been five reclamation
contracts entered into, aggregating
267.CM acres of arid land. Appli
cations have !een made for -17,01)0
acres, in addition to these contracts,
and several surveys are now pending
" " - - - " 1
for further applications. The largest J
contracts mado are with tne Pilot
Butte Development Company, in
Crook county, for 87,707 acres, the
Oregon Development Company. In
Crook and Klamath counties for .!.
""91 acres, and the Harney Va'Icy Im
provement Company, for 0S.K34 acres
The average cost of rec'iamafon iu
these three contracts iu J9.30 er t
acre, and the average cost o. main
talning the works after construi sen, '
is 73 cents per acre. Thus it is seen 1
that this Idle land which Is now prac-1
tically worthless, can be reclaimed j
at a cost of less than $10 per acre,
and as ioon is it is reclaimed. It 1k
coroes worth from JS0 to $100 per
acre, capable of supitorting a ramlly
on each 10 acres. There is no greater
question now before the West, than
this transformation of the desert .nto
gardens and orchaids.
The organization or the Independ
ent Packing Company, at Kansas City
on September 1, is hailed as the fore
runner of the final destruction of the
Beet Trust. The Independent com
pany is composed of bona fide stock
men, who are now In the clutches pt
the trust, and who will begin the con
struction of a line of packing houses
to reach from Chicago to San Fran
cisco, to comjiete with the meat trust,
for the livestock and meat trade of
the West The new company Is to be
dominated br actual ztotkinen, to
prevent the trust from obtaining con
trol, through tho purchase or stock,
and all the stock shipments from the
West are to be bandied by the mem
bers of tho new organization, who are
to reap a double profit from their
stock one from the range article and
one from the finished, or manufac
tured article in the packing bouses.
This is the only logical manner in
which to oppose the trusL If the
Western stockman will back the new
concern and make it a success, it will
be the salvation or the livestock in
dustry of the country, for it has now
reached the point where it is impos
sible for the grower to receive a rea
sonable return on his Investment, on
account of the nrbltrary dealings of
tne trust, which controls both ends
of the road tho live animal and the
meat on the block.

The crank Is a man irrespons.-ie
