THE GOVERNMENT IS WAITING.
Umatilla county is one of the most
promising fields for government irrl-
gation in the West.
Surveys are being prosecuted on
the Echo tract, experiments are be
ing carried on to ascertain the flow
of the streams, the feasibility of res
ervoirs and the possibility of canals
to cover about 200,000 acres of idle
land lying In this and Morrow coun
ties. Echo looks forward to this govern
ment irrigation as the greatest ad
vance step that could be taken in her
Interest, and in the Interest of the
county.
The government has said that Ore
gon must get right in the matter
of Irrigation laws before the projected
irrigation plans could be put into ex
ecution. The government has said,
through its engineers time and time
again, that the national Irrigation law
was passed for the benefit of the
homeseeker, the actual settler.
It has said that tbe states must
rid themselves of tbe speculators. It
has said that private concerns seek
ing to benefit through the operation
of the national law, must be discoun
tenanced by the people, that land and
water speculation were two of the
very evils which the national law
seeks to overthrow, in the interest of
the actual settler.
Localities having irrigation tracts
under consideration by the govern
ment can assist the government by
showing that they are in favor of the
people enjoying the benefits of na
tional irrigation, Instead of the pri
vate corporations. The whole ques
tion of government irrigation lies with
the people, In the spirit they exhibit
toward the plans of the government.
They can invite aid or they can re
pel It by showing their hostility to the
alms of tbe government.
If Echo Ignores the suggestions of
the government to discountenance
speculation In water rights, on a large
scale, as the Oregon Land and Water
Company Is doing through F. B. Hoi
brook, she cannot hope to receive fa
vorable consideration. The policy of
tbe government is plain.
If Echo indorses extensive land and
water speculation by electing F. B.
Holbrook to the legislature, she must
not be surprised If the Echo Irriga
tion project drags slowly along for
years. Mr. Holbrook controls 42,000
acres of land lying contiguous to the
government irrigation tract. He is
selling this land with arbitrary water
rlghtB, for ?100 and more, per acre,
when the government hopes to re
claim the same quality of land and
sell it to actual settlers for not more
than $10 per acre.
Mr. Holbrook said from the plat
form at Echo yesterday, that he hoped
to pass a law permitting blm to bond
water rights and sell them to Eastern
capitalists, the very thing which the
government has cried out against, the
speculation In the water that belongs
to tbe people. Mr. Holbrook said In
plain word that bis own Interest was
foremost, and that after this was
served he would serve the Interest of
(he state.
The East Oregonlan expects to live
to defend the Interests of Umatilla
count as long as tbe county Is on the
map. It has taken the stand against
Mr. Holbrook, believing that the gov
ernment needs, and is entitled to the
co-operation of the people of Unm
tllln county In furthering this plan to
irrigate our idle lands. If wo slap
the government In the face, by elect
ing tbe very man who is conducting a
business especially objectionable to
the reclamation service, can we ex
pect favorable consideration? Can
we expect speedy reclamation or tho
idle land of this county?
It Is not malice nor prejudice that
actuates the East Oregonlan In Its
opiKisltlon to Mr. Holbrook, but It Is
nn unfaltering purpose to serve the
interests of Vmatllla county, in spite
of politics or private interests.
Mr. Holbrook is altogether selfish
in his claims of enthusiasm over Irri
gation. He was invited to attend the
meeting of the state irrigation asso
ciation in this city last November,
but refused to cotaie near. He never
attended a session of the "Umatilla
and Morrow county lrrlgntion associ
ation, and has exhibited no interest in
irrigation which did not directly in
terest Irrigon.
Mr. Newell Is watching the situation
In this county and upon the June
election will largely depend the future
action of the government at Echo.
Tbe Morning Astorian, Senator Ful
ton's personal organ. Is making a
hard fight against the direct nomi
nating primary amendment. It round
ly criticises W. S. U'lten, secretary of
the direct Primady Nominating
League, for saying that this amend
ment promises to abolish the "boss"
in state politics, aud makes the bold
assertion that tbe "boss" is necessary
in politics. This organ of Oregon's
junior senator says n political boss
Is simply a man of superior attain
ments and leadership who gains con
trol of voters through his ability to
suggest winning polities. It says the
power of the "boss" is recognized be
cause his political experiences nre
"so wide" that his suggestions go un
questioned. Inasmuch as the people
of all political parties are determined.
on ridding tbe state of the "boss," It
matters little what any selfish organ
says in regard to the matter. It only
weakens Senator Fulton with the peo
ple, to hear his private organ de
nouncing a policy which proposes to
keep the functions of government In
the hands of the people and out of
the hands of the machines. If the
people fall to pass the direct primary
amendment, they must not complain
of future corruption in state politics.
The matter Is in their keeping.
Every box of fruit sent out of Uma
tilla county this year, should bear tbe
name of tbe grower and the name of
the town from which It Is shipped.
Umatilla county has been doing the
work and Walla Walla .has been re
ceiving all the glory, for Milton and
Freewater fruit, long enough.
Grover Cleveland said In a message
to congress In 1893: "The speculator
who stands with extortionate purpose
between the land and those who with
their families are invited by the gov
ernment to settle on the public lands,
Is a despicable character, who ought
not to be tolerated."

WHY MOTHERS
WORRY
Did you ever hear a mother
worry over a plump child?
There is no better bank of
health for a child to draw
from than a good supply of
healthy flesh.
Scott's Emulsion not only
gives a child weight and
plumpness, but it feeds the
brain, bones and nerves with
strength and active power.
Fewer mothers would
worry if they knew more
about Scott's Emulsion.
