LAND OFFICE REMOVAL.
STOP WHISKEY PEDDLING.
A false Idea of economy In tho con
duct of tho federal court In Oregon
is denying Pendleton a deputy United
States marshal, when such an nfllco
Is needed here every day In tho year.
The penurious federal court will
not nllow pay to tho city marshal for
making the arrest of whiskey ped
dlers, It will not nllow for tho hoard
of federal prisoners whllo under ar
rest and In custody of tho city nuth-
or I ties and seems to takp about as lit
tle Interest In suppressing violations
of federal statutes as It Is possible to
There are about 1200 Indians on tho
Umatilla reservation adjacent to Pen
dleton and this tribe is a fertile field
for whiskey peddlers and "boot log
gers." Not a day passes that does
not witness drunken Indians on tho
streets. Dives exist In this city for
no other purpose than that of reaping
a harvest from the Indians, and yet
their license Is renewed regularly
without a protestation from any part
of tho community.
Very few arrests are made for sell
ing whiskoy to Indians and tho trndo
Is flourishing. The city authorities
have more than tho present force can
do to nttend to the city's business, A
deputy marshal should bo appointed
for Pendleton for the purpose of
breaking up the Indian whiskoy traf
fic. Then the community should do Its
part and when the owners of certain
dives apply for a renewal of license
such a storm of remonstrance should
bo visited upon the city council that
that body would deny tho application
There aro enough home-loving, mor
al people In this community to shut
up the dives. Will they stand respon
sible for tho present condition?
Will a saturnalia of vice now bo
continued in this city, or will tho peo
ple co-operate to check it?
Tho Pilot Itock Uerord, speaking of
tho removal of the ha. Grande land
ofllce. porilnontly says:
Tilers' ''IsMnIk of consolidating tho
Burns nnd I-n Grande land offices, nnd
locate tho olllco nt Dakar City In the
now government building at that
place. This would bo an unwise
niovo on tho part of the government.

Thcro Is no government land that
will over bo homesteaded In tho
neighborhood of linker City. Tho
bulk of the business of tho I .a Grande
land office comes from Northern
Grant nnd, Southern Umatilla coun
ties, nnd If n change Is- to bo mnflo
nt nil from I.a Grande, In tho Interest
of Intending settlers nnd thoso who
hnve already (Hod on land, It should
bo removed to Pendleton.
Baker City is simply the center of
a prospective mining country. It Is
not an agricultural country nnd Is not
accounted n very good stock country.
Thoro Is no Justification whntovor
for the establishment of n laud ofllco
at Baker City.
Pendleton can bo moro easily
reached by the citizens of Grant nnd
Harney than Baker City, nnd besides,
It is contiguous to a largo section of
country that has been filed upon nnd
thousands of acres of government
land yet open to settlement or thoso
looking for a home. There nro no In
ducements to the homeseeker In tho
vicinity of Baker City.
Land olllcos nro not supposed to
bo changed about for tho purpose of
benefiting tho railroad or helping out
some town Hint depends upon tlio
nniouut of money that Is annually
thrown away In wildcat mining
Tho land ofllco at I.a Grande, if re
moved nt all, should bo placed at
some point in the district wliero It
will be most convenient to tho ma
jority of those who hnve business to
transact at tho ofllco.

OLDEST FAMILY ON EARTH.
Bather than vote for n Cleveland-Parker-Wall
street democrat this
fall, there aro thousands of democrats
In Oregon who will either stay homo
In disgust, or vote for Hoosovelt In
desperation. Boosevelt represents
something. Ho Is young nnd venture
some and vigorous and has shown n
solid friendship for tho West In urg
ing Irrigation nnd forest preservation
and In ferreting out land frauds,
among his own nppolntees. Theso
things have not been forgotten by the
West and the democratic voters of
Oregon will vote for Boosevelt on
these slight qualifications rather than
hitch their chariot to tho dummy star
of Wall street, A. B. Parker, or to the
Inexcusable abortion of democracy,
Grover Clovelaud. Tho East Oregonl
nn has been In favor of W. It. Hearst,
even though his candidacy may have j
been ridiculed and his motives scan- j
dnllzed by the sluggish-blooded press
of the land. Ho represents an ag
gressive principle of antagonism to
the trusts and would 'in no Instauco
compromise with them. This is suf
ficient platform for any party and If

1500 feet of track, In the construction
of which both Iron nnd wooden ties
wero used, have been laid. Thoro aro
a station house, two switch towers
and ono Intermedlnto block signal

fitted with mechanical and ono with
electrical signal nppnratus,
The block system makes It Impossi
ble for a train to run Into nn open

double track prevents collisions. By
moans of electrical apparatus all

Impossible. As the Inst wheel of the

At Intervals or nbout seven miles

Nature's plan Is not unwise In

tho inundation In Kansas nt tho same

not completing and controlling na
ture's blind forces. Tho flood can

drought-stricken districts. Man must
