So here hath been dawning
Another blue day:
Think wilt thou let it
Slip useless away?
Out or Eternity
This new day Is born;
Into Eternity
At night doth return.
Behold it aforetime
No eyes over did:
So soon It forever
From all oyes Is hid.

public library, presented to the city
by such a far-seeing and education
loving citizen as S. P. Sturgls. Cor
'talnly there is enough energy nnd
vigor in the city to utilize such a
public blessing, after having It pre
sented, without cost nnd n fund pro
vided for its constunt upbuildlug.
The Commercial Association should
see that it is placed In a suitable
room, under the direct supervision
of an association librarian, and made
u blessing to those who wish to take
advantage of It. If the women havo
a plan which promises to put the It
brary In a condition for wider use,
and which would extend the scope
of the library, let them undertake it
But utilize the library somehow. It
was intended for a public benefit, so
don't box It up, nor farm it out,
where It will be carried away, piece
by piece. The Commercial Assooia
tlon may not havo stifllclent room to
care for it, just now, but Pendleton
is not stationary, and within a few
years there will be a large and com
modious club building with ample
room for a library ten times the size
of the present one nnd in talking
about boxing up or farming out the
library to the public school, or any
other institution, the future must be
considered. The best thing tor the
Commercial Association to do is to
take a few draughts of enthusiasm
build a new club building and take
care of its membership and Its prop
erty, Independent of any hampering
considerations of room or expense.
That will settle the library question
The association in ample quarters,
with pleasant reading room and a
gymnasium for the use of its mem
hers, with weekly meetings and ac
tive work, will be Its own advertise
ment and no committee on soliciting
membership will be needed.
Somebody wants to know about
the possibility of a great European
war growing out of the Russo-Japanese
No man can say absolutely what
will happen, but one may judge tho
possibility of the surroundings. The
future of Europe is a senled book;
but it would seem that a war which
would involve the debt-ridden gov
ernments of France, Germany, Eng
land and Austria were an impossi
bility. They cannot afford to fight, and
the common people do not wish to
fight. The sentiment of socialism in
France and Germany, especially, is
gradually undermining the spirit of
butchery. The staggering debts of
these nations makes it seem impos
sible to tax the people further, for
the purpose of carrying on a war,
It takes ready money to carry on
war. Makers of battleships do not
live on sentiment and patriotism
and as the "Sheriff of Nottingham'
said last night, "revenge pays no
board bills."
SI. Roche, ex-minister of com
merce of France, estimates that in
case of a European war, there would
be at least 2,000,000 fighting men in
rank for Franco, but to gain numer
leal strength equal to that of Ger
many, Franco would find it neces
sary to muster 3,000,000 men, which
would sap the nation of its great vl
tal industrial energy, tako the
strongest all to war, Just at the time-
when thoy should all bo employed at
the nation's industries, to supply
war tax, and just at a time when tho
enormous army must bo fed from
Fronch fields.
To maintain an army of this mag'
nltude it would require an expense
of 1G francs each, or $0,000,000 per
The snmo figures apply to the
other European powers, and It seems
Impossible to bollovo that any of
thorn wish to risk arousing tho Indig
nation of tboir own masses by plung
ing Into a gonarol war, although ft
somblauco of patriotism must bo
kopt nllvo by tho presonco of a
stuiidlng army and n largo navy.
It sooms Idle for Pendleton, a city
of 7,000 onorgotlc, public-spirited
readers, to talk about boxing up a
The East Oregonian boheves that
convict labor would be profitable In
Oregon, If it would reduce the inul
vldual tax on each property holder.
If convict labor applied to the roads
of the state would reduce the road
tax on each person eligible to pay
such a tax, by half, it would ho the
right thing. But if the convict labor
Is to be applied to road work in op
position to tho labor of the people
and not reduce tho taxpayer's actual
road tax, it will effect a wrong. It
will como in opposition to those who
aro only able to pay their road tax
in labor, and It will not help those
who pay In cash. There must bo
some benefit that can be reckoned
In dollars and cents, in favor of tho
people, before this paper will Indorse
the plan. If the convict labor on
the roads can be credited to each
individual's account, who Is assessed
for roads, and If it can reduce tho
individual tax, or stand as a credit
to the Individual account, to the
amount of l or 11.50 per year, then
it would bo satisfactory. But if it
Is to come into direct opposition to
those who must pay their road tax
in labor and not reduce tho Individ
ual road tax, It' would bo unjust to
adopt the plan.
Let the senate elections commit
tee pour the hot questions over the
Mormon leaders, the faith that has
made Utah a garden equal to Para
dlse cannot bo shaken. No matter
by what peculiar manner the Mor
mon's revelations from his God, havo
reached tho earth, whether through
angels with flaming swords, or
through ordinary mortals with
earthy names, tho fact remains that
the Mormon's fulth Is strong, honost,
slncero and deeply grounded in his
heart. His faith has made of tbo
state of Utah a hivo of happiness
and industry beyond compare. It
has linked tho peoplo together as
never a church organization stood
togothor before nnd If It may seem
to tho Gentile to havo improper
features about It, thoro Is much in
It that tho Uuntllo could imitate to
his glory and to tho glory of his
country. Tho Industrial creed of tho
Mormon has novor bean surpassed
in human history. Tho resurrection
of the Utah desert is tho greatest

A French writer describing tho
Russian soldiers says that It is n
pleasure to see n detachment of Im
provised musicians marching nt tho

Music plnys an Importnnt part in
tho life of tho Russian soldier, from
the regiments of the guard and tho
famous Preobrascheii8kI regiment,
with their bands of over 100 strong,

with their improvised choirs.
In addition to these improvised
bands each regiment has nt least que

It is said the Russian Infantryman
prefers to do without his instrumen
tal music rather than his singing

strumental music he Is privileged to

"Tlint piano Is for testing the en
gines." The Englishman thought It n joke,
says a writer in the World's Work,
but when a uniformed pianist struck
a note which harmonized with tho
noise of vibration In each part of tho
locomotive as It was tested, ho un
derstood that thoro could bo no flaws
or cracks In tho engine. He was In
