" (By Frank U Stanton.)
There"! never a blossom that blooms for Love's bosom
As sweet as my blossom my sweet;
And not In God's skies any stars like her eyes -IJke
the eyes of my blossom my sweet!
Like her beautiful eyes, where my destiny lies
All .bright with the blue and the dew of the skies;
She Is wonderful sweet She is wonderful wise
My beautiful blossom my sweet:
And not for the queens of the loveliest kinds
Would 1 Rive her my blossom, my sweet;
Not a kiss of her lips not a clasp of her hands
For the loveliest lauy you'd meet.
For the loveliest maid in w hose honor a blade
Hath flashed where the Untie made foemen afraid;
Her lips to my own! may God's tempests be stayed
For my blossom my blossom my sweet!

I carried on vigorously enough and long enough there will
be magnificent results from the power meeting held here
Saturday. By the,same token it may be said that if we rest
where we are we will get nowhere. The project in view is a big
one and it will not be easily handled. There will be hard work
ahead and the task will require determination. It is a man's
sized job we have tackled but it can be accomplished and should
To fully appraise the value of the convention just closed is
.rot an easy matter. But it is the Delief of all that big strides
w ere taken in the direction of the goal. Public interest has
jteen focused on the subject of developing Columbia river power
jnd the spotlight plays conspicuously on the Umatilla rapids
fite. , It is fast becoming recognized as having peculiar advan
tages that should make the project a comparatively easy one to
twing. It is needless to discuss those advantages here.
One of the most hopeful things is that an unbounded public
Enthusiasm is being awakened and public sentiment is sure to
count heavily. Nor is this sentiment confined merely to people
in the immediate territory. It is general and the contagion
spreads wherever the facts are made known.
: Eastern Oregon is not alone in this cause, pastern Wash
ington is right with us in the game. Assurances of enthusiastic
support were pledged in behalf of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce. The railroads are extremely interested anS their
neal will be increased by the showing made by the Chicago, Mil
vaugee & Sa. Paul which road, though not operating jn this im
mediate region, had two officials at our meeting. The Mil
waukee has shown that electrification is a practical thing in the
northwest and the other roads must inevitably follow suit. The
sooner the better not only for this region but for the nation at
large. ' 1
There are some very fortunate things in connection with the
move. One of these is the federal water power act, through
which we have, as Judge Lowell has shown, an immediate ave
nue for work. Here is an opportunity never before possessed.
Anothef gratifying feature is thatOhe legislatures of both Ore
gon and Washington are in session. We should be able to se
cure from both legislatures memoriajs asking the federal board
t investigate our project. The Oregon legislature should pass
the Joseph bill and will do so if the public interest is served. It
it a big step along the way we wish to go and there is no occa
sion for delav. : ).
AITTn all there is much room for felicitation over the pro
gress made thus far to develop Umatilla rapids power. The
wheels have been set rolling and some extremely valuable sup
