Six Portland ministers turned their
wrath upon Mayor Williams last
Sunday. The old veteran should
turn the city over to tucse reform

would retract their sermons, and re

In order to make the capital of
Oregon appear on tho map as a city
of fair proportions, it Is proposed to
incorporate about half of .Marion
county as Salem. There are cities

the county court to appropriate $10,

amount to bring the home here.

Wood is selling from $3.50 to $5

In price has led the Baker City pa
per to remark that this city Is In the
hands of the wood trust. It Is quite
often necessary to go away from
home to get the news, and this nug'
gestlon from our neighbor will cause
many to wonder at the great differ
ence In price.
It is hoped that the appearance of
the Chemawa band in this city during
carnival week, will stimulate the
Umatilla jn a musical direction.
However, even Chemawa cannot equal
the Umatilla Indian school in offi
cioncy. This institution has done
more to clvmze and Improvo the con
dltion of this tribe, than all other
agencies combined. Tho government
cannot afford to overlook the needs
of this school, and must give tho
teachers every aid and encourage
ment In their work.

While Mormons aro no nblor farm-

tho sentlmeutul bonds thnt hold them
together and cnusos them to work
harmoniously as a bod.y, enable them
to accomplish moro than the single
handed Gentile. Co-operation is tno
key to their success. The Mormon
merchnnt will find a market for Mor
mon produce, and thus encourage the
production of the farm. Ho will hunt
out places In which to dispose of ex
cess produce, and thus bind the tann
er1 to him closer than ever by this
effort. No Mormon who has anything
to sell Is sent homo from the Mor
mon store with unsold produce. No
matter what the produce may be, it
Is disposed of. and tans the effort of

This method encourages the -Mor

causes him to grow a llttlo ot every
thing that the market demands, in
order to be ready for any unexpected
turn of the market. This is what
stimulates the culture of berries, ve;
otnbles, all kinds of grain, hay, fruit

market demands, the Mormon mer

This fellow-feeling which enters
into the business life of the Mormon
community is the oasis of Mormon
prosperity. There Is a sentimental
consideration beneath it, which no
plain, cold-blooded business method
can successful combat. The Mormon
farmer -s ent.Jcd to the fullest pro
tection of the Mormon In business. It
is part of the creed to encourage in
dustry, and therefore uo man who
works and produces something, is
forced to take less than It Is worth
In the markot. For this reason the
Mormon Is a cheerful, happy, buoy''
ant worker. His heart Is in his la

duce on his farm, i.iere is a sure in

This method In business binds the
member still closer to his church. It
becomes part of the everyday life of
the Mormon to look up to his church
as the one great source ot his pros
