LABELS
Life is a privilege. If some
sad fate
Semis us alone to seek the
exit Kate;
If men forsake us as the
Rhailows fall,
Still does the supreme privil
ege of all
Come in that reaching- upward
of the soul
To find the welcoming pres
ence at the goal.
And in the knowledge that our
feet have trod
Paths that lead from and
must lead hack to God.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
One-half the world don't know
what the other half is doing. When
Postmaster Bancroft, of Portland,
had his fingers in the government
funds last week, he perhaps didn't
know that New York's postmaster
was doing the same thing at the
same time.
a change of administration than that
the departments be cloaned out by
the appointmont of new officials for
but four years, that, is sufflclont for
a campaign issuo. One party In
power so safely and so long, becomes
bold and brazen in corruption. Dom
ocrats are but humans and would
doubtless fnll into the same habit, if
as firmly Intrenched In governmental
departments "as their opponents. It
Is best for the people that the parties
be evenly balanced in national af
fairs. After one party has held full
sway for years and used its .official
position to strengthen and porpotu
ate Its power, tho people should find
in that dangerous tendency n sufllc
lent campaign issue upon which to
erect a chnnge. ,
It is worthy of note to taxpayors
to know that county government in
Umatilla county cost J5.0S4.72 less in
1U03 than in 1902. notwithstanding
the Increased labor which tho
amended tax law necessitates In the
sheriff's office. This saving was ef
fected through the most rigid econO'
my nnd business pianngement In the
county offices having charge of the
assessment, and collection of taxes,
ud the office of district attorney and
county Judge. Mr. Strain assessed
Umatilla county for $4,H2 In 1903,
when the average cost for seven
years before had been $5,003.75.
Sheriff Taylor has also made a sav
ing In his office nnd by close vlgt
lance in miscellaneous expenditures,
Judge Hartman has been able to cut
down the general expenses greatly,
saving the people $21 G by protesting
the county printing bill alone. One
of the greatest savings effected dur
ing the last year Is through the ad
vice and efficient counsel of T. G.
Hailey, as prosecuting attorney, who
has steered the county clear of much
costly litigation. These comparisons
reflect no discredit on the efficient
officers who hold strictly salaried of
fices, but are prominently mentioned
because of the need of the same
economy and the same rigid survell
lance in future, that have been ex
erclsed in the past 'year.

CATARRH
A COMMON
COMPLAINT.
Catarrh begins with a stubborn cold in the head, inflammation or sore
ness of the mcmbrnne or lining of the nose, discharge of mucus matter,
headaches, neuralgia and difficult breathing, and even in this early stage
is almost intolerable. But when the filthy secretions begin to drop back
into the throat and stomach, and the blood becomes polluted and the
6ystcm contaminated , , , .. , .

It affects the kidneys
nnd stomach as well as other parts of the body. It is a constitutional
disease nnd as inhaling mixtures, salves, ointments, etc., are never more
than palliative or helpful, even in the beginning of Catarrh, what can
you expect from such treatment when it becomes chronic nnd the whole
system affected ? Only such n remedy ns S. S. S. can reach this obsti

catarrhal poison. S. S. S. purifies and builds up the

The call for the meeting nt The
Dalles on Tuesday. Jlay 17, for the
purpose of organizing a permanent
portage road and river transportation
commission of farmers of the Inland
Empire, is the best step yet taken
toward the construction of the port
age road. It is the story of the old
lark and the wheat field over again.
. The farmers of the Inland Empire
have waited in vain for relief, for
the past 32 years, and are no nearer
actual relief today than then. Now
they have called a meeting of wheat
growers, of actual shippers from the
Inland Empire, to take steps
hurry up some kind of relief for the
producers of this great section
Umatilla county takes pleasure in
sending Thomas Kirk ' and R. M
O Brien, two representative farmers
to join in the work of relief. The
farmers must take up this task, as
the legislators and representatives
in congress fall to accomplish any
thing. The people need competition
in the matter of transportation and
the Columbia river has been placed
at their service by nature as a means
of civilizing the West.
Thinking voters will be struck
with the different campaign methods
of the local option forces and the
Liquor Dealers' Association. The
liquor dealers are collecting large
sums of money for campaign pur
poses, assuming by this that the
voters of Oregon may be won by a
price for their ballot. The local op'
tion people are conducting a cam
paign of education, and information.
appealing to the Intelligence and
honesty of the voter to win. One
represents the machine rule and
brute force In society, the other the
intelligence and conscience of the
land. Which -method do you prefer
during the campaign, and which
force do you prefer to see in power
after election? Do you want to see
the force triumph which values you
by so many dollars and cents which
It will require to buy you, or do you
choose to be counted as one of so
many intelligent beings, to whom the
appeal of reason and righteousness
is an Incentive to act? Don't forget
that a vote for local option is a vote
for the majority rule and local self
government It is Interesting to hear republican
papers declare that there Is no issue
for the democrats for the 1904 cam
paign, while the same papers nro

Any citizen of Pendleton who will
stand on the high school ground any
week day evening after school and
watch the invigorating sport enjoyed
by the students, will experience a
thrill of pride for the city and her
institutions. Instead of running
away to town and hoodlumlsm as
soon as school is dismissed, the
young men go to the play ground for
an hour for relaxation from study
and for a physical finish which Is
just as necessary to a complete ed'
ucatlon as mental finish. It requires
genius In a principal to give just
enough physical nnd mental training
always necessary to balance the man.
It requires personality and self-sac
rificeand persistent energy to hold
the esteem, confidence and enthusl
asm of 100 romping high school boys
from IE to 20. It is an exalted am'
bition in a principal which suggests
sports and useful diversions for stu
dents after school hours, to prevent
the perilous temptations of the town
from weakening the school enthusl'
asm. It Is a matter of pride to Pen
dleton that there is no break in the
process of training in her high
school, where the students are young
men and young women, susceptible
to so many social and otner inter
ruptlons to study. It has been the
aim of Professor Conklln to form a
continuous claim of interest that will
bridge over the hours from 4 p. m,
to 9 a. m In oruer that the school
influences might not be broken by
outside forces. When school dis
misses he finds sports and literary
contests and musical education and
other elevating studies to hold the
interest and Improve the mental and
physical nature. The result is gratl
fylng. Instead of finding your high
school boys on the streets after
school, you find thorn pursuing some
mental or physical pastime connect
ed with their school life. They are
occupied, active. No slothful habits
of mind or body are allowed to grow.
There is clean, refreshing, elevating
diversion, yet all of it a part of the
general onward course of their edu
cation.
