secretaries of the interior ami com

without number have recommended
the repeal by congress of these tliroo
land stealing laws.
Public sentiment, however is now
becoming awakened to the vast
steals perpetrated under these laws
ami to tho fact that the government
lias been defrauded of tens of mil
lions of dollars of property nnd what
Is worse, the laud absorption Is con
tinuing at n constantly increasing
rate. It is not a question of enforce
ment or the laws, though a rigid
administration would, of course, help
matters some; the laws were born
in Intimity to enable land grabbing.

There are no lives unfln-
God gives to each man at
birth some work to do,
Some precious stone of
strange prismatic hue
To carve and polish, till it
shall be meet
To place within his temple,
still and sweet.
Ere that be done, the soul
may not pass through
The door to grander worlds,
to aim more true,
To wider life with love's
sweet joys replete.
And, If the working time be
short, and earth
With Its dear human ties be
hard to leave,
Be sure that God, whoso
thought hath given the
Still holds for thee the best
thou canst receive;
He sure the soul. In passing
through that door,
Though losing much, gains
The time has come when the land
of the West should be considered as
a material valuable resource, to be
as Jealously guarded by the govern
ment as any other government property.
It has been valued heretofore
much like watered stock of some
recently organized corporation; un
limited In quantity and to be used
In great blocks for tho purpose of
Inducing Investors to come In, and
given away In enormous areas to In
duce Western development.
The sort of development which the
Western land grants, and under
these grants should be Included the
enormous areas absorbed by syndi
cates through our present loose land
laws the timber and stone act, tho
commutation clause of the home
stead act and the desert land act
fa not the sort of development which
makes tho most prosperous commu
nities. A man may Individually realize as
much from a 5,000-acre tract of graz
ing land, as he would from a SO-acre
tract of Irrigated land probably
more and If ho can mako moro, ho
will go on working the larger tract.
Hut tho community and tho Btato
and the country lose thereby. They
want tho farmer with his 50 acres
of highly productive land, and want
ing this, they will bo against any
desert land laws which allow a man
and hl wife to take up a square
mile of government land.
The report of tho secretary of tho
Interior, In addition to showing a
condition of unparalleled fraud and
perjury In public land and timber en
tries. Is a strong denunciation of tho
timber land and stone act, tho com
mutation clause of tho homestead
The fact that the municipal water
system of Pendleton pays the peo
ple a dividend, above tho necessary
expenses or operation, is a spur to
further public ownership, if a water
system pays, an electric light sys
tern, a telephone system, and grad
ually other public conveniences will
be adopted. No matter how small
the profits to tho city, If tho public
systems can bo run on business
principles, kept out of the hands of
grafters and made to reduce tho cost
of the necessities of lite to the com
mon people, no amount of opposition
can prevent their certain ndoptlon.
In time. It Is idle to fight fate. It
Is Idle to disclaim against tho Inov
Itable flood of public ownership of
those utilities which lie so nenr .the
masses, and enter Into such constant
contact with life. The people aro
not blind, nor deaf, and figures won't
Ho if newspaper men will. The Pen
dleton city water system yielded
gross receipts in excess of the cost
o& operation, amounting to $7,003.01.
Taxes, Insurance, depreciation nnd
all, taken out, if there had been but
one dollar clear profit to tho city, it
Is an unanswerable argument In fa
vor of municipal ownership.

The O. n. & N, has never denied
I'endleton a Just and legitimate re
quest In the past, and the Commer
cial Association enters Into the
movement to change the time of tho
arrival of the mixed branch train in
In this city, with well-founded hope
for tho same results In the future.
Tho ma(n bulk of the people of Uma
tilla county patronize this branch
lino between Pendleton and Walla
Walla; thoy depend upon It for their
dally trips to the county seat, and
to their principal trading point, and
owing to tho lateness of tho hour fit
which this afternoon train arrives it
Is Impossible for tho people to como
here, transact their business nt
banks, courthouse and stores, and
catch the return train at C o'clock
In the evening. It Is the people of
Umatilla county, speaking through
the petitions being circulated, and
to their plea, this enterprising and
accommodating company has never
turned a deaf ear In tho past.

Winter time won't last forever, and
I won't go far away;
I'll bo taking things quite easy, for

We seldom fear

one to everybody, the
danger of being mur

does not trouble tu.
And yet the minute mi
crobe is more dangerous
than the wildest horse.
The only people who can
afford not to fear the mi
crobes of disease are thoae
who keep their blood pure
