Who cares Who the devil cares about anything
or everything ? See what happens in "Who Cares."
FLOWING TO THE SEA
HE annual discharge at the mouth of the Umatilla river
is approximately 600,000 acre feet or enough to cover
that number of acres of land with water one font. iiw.n
The capacity of the Cold Springs reservoir is but 50,000 acre
feet and the feci canal being comparatively small is unable to
i-aice care 01 anything like the total tlood waters of the river. If
it could, the reservoir could not held the water. Therefore most
of our flood water, rich in sediment, flows wastefully to the sea.
All this happens while in the greater portion of Umatilla
county biennial crops are raised because the moisture supply is
inadequate for annual crops and at times there is not enough
rainfall to insure a good crop even on alternate years.
The answer of course, is storage facilities that will impound
the flood waiers and permit it to be utilized where needed. It
is not particularly a live issue now because at present prices
v. heat raising is very profitable. Wheatmen have no desire to
go into irrigated farming just at present. "SIH
Nevertheless the time is coming when we will want the wa
ter that now flows to th sea. It may come in five years, or 10
years. It may not be for 100 years. But the day will come as
surely as water runs down hill. Farsighted people will not for
get the fact that the time may come sooner than we think when
eager efforts will be made towards storing water so that central
Umatilla county may raise something besides wheat.

HE surprising thinjr about the Illinois primary is not that
ill Lowden carried the state but that General Wood did so
well in his opponent's own bailiwick. To carry Cook
county. Chicago, against the governor of Illinoiss. was no small
accomplishment for Wood. It vill help to console his followers
for the knockout administered them in Michigan. The written
in vote for Johnson in Chicago which was heavy is not remark
able. It was to be expected that the "seventh German city"
would pile up some ballots for the man who has most bitterly
assailed the peace treaty and the League of Nations.

AFTER THE LUMBER TRUST
HE United States district court at Memphis has recently
held that the exchange of market information through a
common secretary on the part of the members of the
American Hardwood Lumber Manufacturer's Association con
stitutes a conspiracy in violation of the Sherman anti-trust law.
In the case in question the proceedings were of a civil character,
but the department of justice has given warning that criminal
prosecution will be begun in all similar casess coming to its
THE CONGRESSIONAL ARK
HILE on the congressional ark, otherwise known as the
transport Mount Vernon, 100 congressmen journeying
to the orient for a jaunt will pay for subsistence at the
rate of $1.25 per day, or $37.50 a month. In other respects they
will travel free and many of the gentlemen are to take their
families along. Who can say that the congressmen have not
found the answer to the cost of living problem.

ISCLOSURES showing that the Russian communists have
wm ")een active in the switchmen's strike and that they are
using this as a step towards a general revolution, shows
the treacherous character of the Lenin-Trotsky combine arid the
danger'of tolerating radical agitators in America. They would
turn our country into a bloody shambles on the ruins of which
they would ereet a tryanny such as they have foisted upon Rus
ria Should they succeed the people would be turned from free
citizens into military slaves. The switchmen have gotten into
mess by listening to false counsel but now that the facts have
been disclosed we may look for a speedy break-up of the unau
thorized strike. The rail workers are loyal and they will not
knowingly be used for the purposes that have been made known
by the department of justice.
For a year the United States senate under the Lodge leader
ship played fast and loose with the peace and safety of the
world ; for political spite they destroyed America's world pres
tige and we may have to pay the price.
American workers now get good pay. In Russia the worker
pets his board and clothe and not much of that and it is jail
for him if he kick.
Fred Lockley is one of the best known men in the state and
the best liked by those who know him. He is well fitted to be
n( cretary of state and should win.
