IS IT TOO 1.ATK?
tBy Frank - Stanton.)
It I too late dnr eyes withdrawn for weeping.
To stand one more. suppliant at Love's Kale?
To Iry one flower where withered blooms are steeping
la It too late?
la It too late in- sight of r.rth and heaven
To wreathe with laurel brows thorn-crowned of FateT
To kneel to Love, and ask to be forgiven
Is it too late?
O death tn life! for deeper than all dying;,
With sad Regret in uter Night to wait
For some sweet word, and hear Love's voice replying:
"Too late! Too late!"

TOURIST BUSINESS ENDANGERED
TTS'DER the water power act passed by the last congress
J and signed by President Wilson, private interests have
the privilege of filing on water in, any federal park or
reservation. This defect in the power bill was noted by the
president at the time but he signed the bill anyway rather than
work a further endless delay in the development of our power
resources. It was understood at the time, however, that an
amendment would be passed protecting the national parks.
Meanwhile permits for development have been refused.
A measure has since passed the senate specifically allowing
power development in the parks and there is danger the house
may also pass the measure. Friends of the parks assert that if
this is done the future of the national parks of America will be
seriously jeopardized. It is easy to understand why. Water
falls may be destroyed, beautiful lakes converted into reservoirs
and other steps taken such as will mar the scenic effect.
The measure should be defeated .and the parks protected.
They are a big asset as they stand becise of the commercial im
portance of the tourist business to the west. This business will
grow a$ time passess, provided the value of the parks is not de
stroyed. But if the water falls and lakes are converted to indus
trial purposes the natural grandeur of the scenery will be gone
While so much power remains undeveloped outside the parks
it seems inexcusable that any one should be allowed to lay hands
on our national parks.

THE JUDGMENT NOT MADE
FRIENDS of the Irish republic move in this country fre
quently have attacked the press of the United States for
publishing in its news columns the stories of raids and
counter-raids in Ireland. 1 Charges have been made frequently
that the reports are biased and that the United States has no
sympathy with the Irish. The allegations of the Irish are, per
haps, a bit hasty.
The United States does not know the inside story of Ireland's
cause but has gone out to' learn it. The committee of 100, an
unofficial commission, is now hearing the story from Mrs. Muriel
MacSwiney and Miss Mary MacSwiney, widow and sister of the
late lord mayor Terence MacSwiney, of Qork, who starved him
self to death for the Irish cause.
The newspapers are carrying unbiased accounts of these
women's testimony. The accounts of doings in England and
Ireland are as unbiased as the great news gathering services of
the world can get them. The world, including the United
States, is taking evidence, not sitting in judgment, now. When
the story is all told, then the world can judge if it will.
ADDING TO THE NATATORIUM
ENDLETON'S natatorium, in three months this summer,
cleared virtually $500 on an income of $1300. This was
accomplished despite the open pool and the unadulterat
ed water just out'of the mountain springs. What the natatori
um would be with a .heating plant and inclosed, a3 was suggest
ed to the council Wednesday night, can only be surmised.
Mayor Vaughan, as head of the committee, believes that tht
nat would soon pay for its heating plant. Were the place to be
inclosed, quite an additional expense would be incurred. It
would, however, be fit for use at all seasons with such improvc
?i ents. - . "
Baker is covering and inclosing its municipal pool, which
gets water from a natural warm spring.. The experience of the
neighboring city would be worth investigating when its project
is completed and in operation. Pendleton has an $11,000 in
vestment in its natatorium and could it be kept running throughT
out the year without drain on the taxpayers, it would fit in nice
ly with a community program, such as has been tendered this
