Hoston ordered 10 carloads of flour
from this forbidding haunt of snvn-
Kes and wild animals, this Oregon
country which her statesmen shud

Thus Is the recompense of time made
perfect and the pride of the haughty
made humble In the presence of civi
lization's leveling Influences. The lit
tle snvages crowded In the narrow
cities In New England can now find
free homes, fresh air, broader citi

this Inhospitable wilderness of the old
New Englander's dream.
Senntor Fairbanks has not resigned
his senatorial toga and evidently Is
uncertain of his election In Novem
ber. If he 'were certain of election to
the vice-presidency his grip on the
.'senatorshlp would undoubtedly relax.

iness don't depend, on this class of
parasites. They produce nothing, ndd
nothing to the community, except a
.contamination and their presence Is
not needed. It Is not wanted any

forced to support the cast-off refuse
of other parts of the world. Drive
out the white shirt hobo. He. Is the
really dangerous specie.
The state Irrigation convention Is
over and now for the national con
gress at El Paso. In November. The
states that show a disposition to aid
the government In making straight
their crooked Irrigation laws, will
stand more chajice of receiving a por
tion of the 2". 000,000 reclamation
fund than the states that remain in
the lethargic condition. Oregon can
get a larger share of this fund by
showing an actual Interest In Irriga
tion. She should liuve one of the
very largest state delegations at El
Paso. It will prove to the govern
ment that the Interest In Irigatlon
here Is not superficial nor selfish.
After pondering over the figures
of the department of commerce and
labor for about a month, the Chicago
-Chronicle has discovered Mr. Wright's
-"average man does not exist," but
that "the standard of living Is better"
than It was a few years ngo. Since
k the beef trust, the coal trust, and the
' hundreds of other trusts have ad
vanced prices to the top notch, the
average man und woman have discov
ered that It costs a great deal more to
keep up the standard of living, and
that present wages and trust prices
are an obstacle that everyone feels.
AH tile sophistry of the partisan sta-
tistlclans cannot gloss over the fact
that .the limited income cannot be
stretched to meet tho demands that
nre mido upon it. High trust prices,
fostered by the unjust tariff, may give
a glamour of prosperity to tho pro
tected Industries, but tho many have
to pay to the prosperous few.
It was n Now Kuglander who

There is no danger of the wheat raiser

given us the phonograph, telephone,

Light breaks on the Celllo canal
right of way. The case between the
state anil .the O. It. & N. company
bus been sensibly compromised, on 1
terms satisfactory to both. For a I
fair consideration, agreed to be paid,
the company will not oppose the ca- '
nal. Only one other private owner I
besides I. II. Taffe is to be settled
with, and It Is hoped terms can be
made with him. The Taffe case will
soon be ready to go to the supreme
court, which It may be expected will !
not delay very long in rendering a de-
clslnn. If it should affirm the circuit1
court, and Mr. Seufert can In the
meantime be dealt with, the way will
be clear; the state will have present
ed the government the right of way;
and It can go ahead with the work 011
All this is well, yet this fair pros
pect does not obviate the necessity of
building the portage road. Judging
by past performances It will take
eight or 10 years, at least, to dig tho
canal and build the locks; but if it
only takes five or six years, the people
of the Inland Empire cannot afford
to wait even that long for relief.
Oet the right of way for the canal
as (illicitly as possible, but also build
the portage road as soon as possible.

the proposed revision of the laws by
which saloon keepers, bartenders and
liquor dealers nre to be debarred from
membership In the Iledmen. This
amendment was presented by Past
Great Incahono Robert T, Daniel,
chairman of the committee on tho re
vision of tho laws, nnd was adopted
by a safe majority of those present.
"The nmendment also provides that
any member who shnll engage in tho

been admitted to the order shall be
liable to suspension."

A Quart Baby.,
Now and again there is an item in the
newspapers concerning the birth or a
Euny baby so small that a quart cup
olds it comfortably. If the article told
all the Tacts it would probably tell also
of a mother who in weakness and misery
had looked forward to the baby's advent
with shrinking and fear.
To have fine, healthy children the
mother must be healthy, and it is the
of mothers that the
use of Dr. Pierce's
tion not only pro
motes the mother's
health but also
. gives her strength
i to give her child.
