The hullillng ot a beet sugar fac
tory In Umatilla county and the di
vision of tho mrge farms Into small,
highly cultivated tracts, means that
the value of the tillable lands of the
county, now placed at J3,2fi7,S28,
vsould be increased at least 10 per
tent Inside of three years. That Is
the record In Union county, and It
will be repeated here.
Before it Is time to buy file, for
next winter, Pendleton hopes to havo
stored in her bins and sheds a suffic
ient supply of Hoppner coal to warm
her feet for the season. It is the log
ical fuel supply for this city, nnd all
efforts should bo bent in that direc
tion. It is hoped by Eastern Oregon"
that the mines are as Inexhaustible
as they appear to be now.
It is hoped that the cut in the sal
ary of city marshal is only tempor
ary. The council is to be commended
for its effort to economize in uxpon
ses, but tho people who are sincere
ly interested In good government do
not beliovo that the pay of a public
official should be so low that It would
fall to bo a stimulant to good service.
The motto should be to pay well and
require good work.
The first real snow storm of tho
winter visited Umatilla county on
January 4. Heforo Thanksgiving,
Iowa, Illinois, Missouri and other
Eastern states had suffered intensely
cold spells and the extreme East had
ceji more biting wintry weather up
to Christmas than is experienced in
Pendleton in three winters. Is It any
wonder the West-bound homeseekor
trains are loaded?
Who will bo tho first Pendleton
minister to ask for the removal of
the womt-n'R lints In church? The
custom is Jn vogue In smaller nnd
less progressive townH than Pendle
ton. The Justice and common sense
features of the custom will be rec
ognized by all at a glance nnd tho
only reason that It is not practised
universally is that nobody makes the
start. If you can't seo tho minister
hs be speaks, the sermon falls flat,
It should not bo necessary to ask
tho women to start tho practise, but
they should inaugurate It by commou
consent and example. Hegln tho now
Tho January number ot tho Kuvluw
ot Reviews contains a character
sketch ot Joseph U Urlstow, fourth
assistant postmaster-general, former
ly ot ICansas, who has become such
a terror to tho thlevos In tho postof
flce dopartment. Urlstow has been
Justly called tho "watch dog of the
postolllce," and to his unwavering
hibited his common sense nnd sta
bility of character in the host of
friends he has made for himself and
his company while occupying this
high position in the commercial cir
cles of the West, and he has exhibit
ed hi genius of generalship in 'he
high esteem in which he is held by
the employes in every uepartment cf
the O. It. & N. system. When an O.
It. & N. employe walks into Mr.
.Mulder's office with a Just grievance,
ho finds himself In the presence of n
big-hearted, broad-minded, just man,
commonplace and approachable and
conersant with the minutest details
of the service. No man was over
turned away from this office wlthvit
having been made to feel that ho
would receive absolute Justice. He la
a plain, broad-guage business m.in,
ripe with priceless experlenco In
every branch of railroading and
would take control of the great Union
Pacific system with tho ease and
grace of a master. To his evenly
balanced mind and clear senso of
Justice is largely duo tho extremely
friendly relations existing between
the 0. It. & N". compnny nnd Its boat
of employes and his administration
of the affairs of the Union Pacific
would have an especially beneficial
effect Just now, whan a master hand
Is needed there.

Kvor since tho passage by the Htuto
