"Bill was a character,
And now he ' dead.
And since the day his spirit went '
I have been wondering what we meant.
A character! His word was good
With all throughout his neighborhood.
His ways were Rentle and he smiled
Much like a child: i
He never flattered men for pain
Xor spoke to cause another pain.
And yet to what of good he knew
For sixty long years he was true.
He had a quaint and curious style
And liked to smile;
He seemed to love the birds and trees
And gloried In the morning breeze,
Out in the open he'd declare
That he could find God everywhere.
He never rose to wealth or fame,
But Just the same
He brought a touch of gentle grace
To this poor weather-beaten place.
.i character! That's what we said.
Hut we shall miss him now he's dead,
by Edgar A. Guest.)
MEANWHILE OUR BEST ASSET IS UNUSED
WILKKS-BARUE, Pa.. Jime 21.--(I.
X. S.) The horrors of life In Rus
sia under the bolshevist regime are
more terrible than they have been pic
tured by newspaper correspondents.
GEORGE OTIS SMITri, director of the U. S. geological
survey, recently said : .
. , "If the people could only be made to understand
that the control and utilization o" rivers means millions of dol
lars to them and offers one of the greatest economic advan
tages that can be taken of the natural resources, they would
not be slow in approving plans for river development. Not
only such development as looks merely to flood prevention
although this in itself would save billions of dollars but devel
opment that will provide a uniform flow for rivers and streams
by which power could be generated that could be brought
. -ithin the reach of hundreds of communities which do not have
it now. V ' nir: g
'The development of water-power of the rivers of the coun
try is going to be one of the great achievements of the United
Ftates will see in the next few years. It will be a saving to the
people so great that it cannot now be fully comprehended. In
tiie East we are learning that our rivers can serve us best when
hitched up with our great steam power plants."
No use; belaboring the people on this subject. They are
fully committed to the need of power development and would
back up any real plan to get action. The trouble is at Wash
ington.' It took congress 10 years to pass the water power law
and then no money was given the federal water board to work
with. Private electric interests saw to that.
Hydro electric development is the most important subject
in Oregon, yet the most neglected. Here is a wonderful op
portunity for Oregon senators and congressmen to bestir them
selves but if they have ever done much this newspaper has nev
er heard of it. The legislatures of Oregon and Washington
have passed memorials in behalf of the Umatilla rapids project
and the project association, representing two states, has been
busy. But at Washington a policy of masterly inactivity has
been working overtime. Ths McNary irrigation bill, exploited

Starvation is gripping the young and

Jews are the particular subjects for
venomous attacks and persecution.

AT THE DOORSTEP OF THE U. S. A.
28 YEARS AGO
HAITI has had twenty-seven presidents. Sixteen of these
were driven into exile or fled, usually with the contents
of the treasury. Four were assassinated, one committed
suicide and three died from unknown causes. Two were allow
ed to retire alive. That accounts for twenty-six The twenty
seventh, owing to the American marines, is still in office, and,
aisp owing to the marines, the treasury is intact. . From 1915
to 1921, while the marines wore there, there has ben no vio
lent overturn in the Haitian, government. From 1908 to 1915,
there were seven changes and all violent. From "The March
of Events" in the World's Work for July.
The Portland Oregonian accounts for lack of action at
Washington on the ground President Harding has had to first
untie the knots left by the Wilson administration. But the
"knots" left by the old administration . were all tied by the
Lodge coterie in the senate and President Harding has been
very loath to touch them for fear of starting a rumpus with the
irrei'oncilables of his own party.

The theory that those missing ships were captured or sunk
by bolsheviki agents sounds reasonable; there is plenty of tan
gible evidence in the possession of the United States govern
ment showing that the real inner purpose of the Lenin regime
lias been to make war, by fair means or foul, on this country
as an exponent of democracy.
The cherry crop at The Dalles will sell for one-third the
price received for the 1920 crop. The funny part of the thing
mat last year there was no protective tariff on cherries and
his year the growers have thn "advantage" of the emergency
tariff act which provides a stiff duty on cherries.
Eleven year old Gene La Follette was drowned in the Wil
