USE THE FUND FOR THE PURPOSE INTENDED
HOULD Tendleton wish to grab the Til Taylor money and
use it for some "practical purpose," the money could not
be devoted to anything more practical than the purchase
ri. a newTire truck. We need one worse than sin. '
, But thi3 live city has never found it necessary to engage in
grave robbing to satisfy its local needs and there is no occasion
now. The Taylor memorial money was not raised for utilitarian
purposes. It is a matter of sentiment not a business proposi
tion. The money was given in a spirit.of generosity and appre
ciation of the record of a truly remarkable officer who served
this county faithfully for 20 years at a salary his successor has
already found to be inadequate.
' There is one way and one way only for Pendleton to handle
the Taylor memorial if we wish to preserve our reputation as
a square dealing, upstanding city. The money should be used
for the sole purpose of honoring the memory of Til Taylor. It
should not be used to buy something for Pendleton.

SOME TIMELY SELF HELP
i ' . . J . ...
EENDLETON is rather addicted to the habit of travelling
under its own power whenever the occasion requires and
this tendency is well illustrated by the offer submitted
by the First National Bank regarding the bonds for fire equip
ment purposes. '
It is very desirable that those bonds be sold so that needed
fire equipment may be purchased. There have been illustra
tions of the fact that our present fire truck has passed its age of
usefulness and there' must be a betterment soon or we face
higher insurance rates. So if our bankers can take the bonds
they will be rendering a signal service to the city.
It is equally desirable that the city perfect its purchase of
the block near the Catholic church as authorized by the people
last fall. However, it is stated by officials that money for this
purpose may be taken from the general fund, in which case the
bond sale need not be awaited.
A QUESTION OF FAIR PLAY
IF the salaries of county officials are to be raised by the leg
v islature, why should the county school superintendent
and the county assessor be denied advances. Their sal
aries are near the foot of the list. As assessor Mr. Hawkes
draws the munificent sum of $125 a month and pays his own
travelling expenses. , Superintendent Green gets $150 a month
in salary and is about the lowest paid principal in the county. He
could secure another position at double his present salary and
it would be impossible to replace him at the salary now paid.
Why were tyiese men ignored when the salary bill was intro
duced? It is a fair question and it involves a question of fair
play in which the people of this county may properly take a
hand. . Play fair, gentlemen, or leave the salary question enthe
; ly alone.
J A party of six distinguished Portland men has left for a trade
Eurvey trip through Mexico. The expedition is a commendable
cne but it is timely to mention that the mightiest undeveloped
empire of the west is practically at the door of Portland and the
help of that city is urgently desired in connection with develop
ing hydro electric power on the Columbia.
Not surprising that a newspaper that has made a continuous
practice of making false 'affidavits to the postal department,
to the county court and to advertisers (and has admitted the
2'act in court) should see no wrong in urging misappropriation
cf the Taylor fund. Clear vision is not to be expected from the
morally color blind.
