Leading drug men of the country amazed at the tremendous
sales of tanlac, and point out ewhusiastically that. nothing has
ever equalled the phenomenal demand for this' preparation. '
At the preat Tanlac laboratories at
Dayton. Ohio, letters and telejrams
are pouring in daily' asking that ship

Many of these orders are- for full car
load, shipments, and quite a few of
them for two and threev carloads. Al

THE TOWN HAS GROWN .
TVT1 one can give even slight attention to the subject of the
city's financial status without seeing the need of relief.
x ' Under the charter the tax limit is the same as it was many
years ago when the town was much smaller and the needs less
)res.singt The assessed valuation has increased but little in the
last 10 years. In fact the assessment this year is- likely to be
lower than last year because of declining values. .Hence the
normal tax income of the city remains about what it was way
back in the days before the war.
But the city expenses have not remained the same because
the population has increased by several thousand and the town
in every way has grown. Formerly we, had no paid fire departs
roent. We relied on volunteer work and let the property owner;
i&ot the bill in the form of high insurance rates. But who would
abolish the fire department and go back to the policy of letting
volunteer firemen roll out a hose cart when a blaze gets under
way? ' ' ' '. '' ' '
The city is now paying twice as much for street lights as it I
formerly paid. But who would cut down street lighting? We
need more lights rather than fewer because it is a matter of ;
common fame that our business section is very poorly lighted.
There is necessity for more street cleaning than formerly
because we have several times as much paving as we did 10
years ago. So on down the line in every department. 'Salaries
are naturally higher than they fere and materials cost more.
The city's legitimate expenses Jiave risen and the facts must be
Fortunately a higher levy than 11 mills may be made if the
people so vote. They will vote affirmatively on the budget if
they understand the tacts and want to see the town go forward.
? With one exception Pendleton now has a lower tax rate than
any town of its size or larger in Oregon. We can afford to meet
the really pressing needs of the town and should do so. It will
' be bad business not to do so'. We need economy and a thorough
check against waste or graft But we-dont need a niggardly
policy and we will not get anywhere by trying to follow such a
-policy. . ;
i LET SUPPLY AND DEMAND HAVE A CHANCE
A CORRESPONDENT of the Chicago Tribune writes from
Edwardsville, 111., that the farmers in that region, like the
farmers elsewhere, are -protesting "volubly and constant
ly" at the hard times now upon them. They protest at the low
prices at which thy must sell their products and at the slowness
with which manufactured goods return to reasonable prices.
Having taken his own loss the farmer is justified in expect
ing that other prices also come down. But how can he have hh
wish if the Fordney tariff, with its joker in the form of the Am
erican valuation plan, is enacted. The Fordney bill will serve
to increase prices as shown by a statement from the head of the
Marshall Field & Co., published by this paper Saturday. The
facts are indisputable and if the decline in prices is stopped by
the passage of the Fordney bill no one can blame the retailer or
the wholesaler. They will be helpless. .
The surest way to restore reasonable prices for the consum
er is to permit the law of supply and demand to work its will
through allowing a fair measure of importation. This has been
distinctly proven in the news print market, a market in which
newspapers are keenly interested. During the war and the
prosperous year following the war the price of news print in
America was run to dizzy heights. Even big users such as th
large city papers paid two and three times the pre war price for
newsprint. The spot market was even higher. Scores of news
papers suspended and everywhere publishers were driven near
ly to dispair. There are newspapers in Oregon the size of the
Kast Orgonian that paid outlast year as much as ?10,000 dur-l
ing the year above.what they should have paid for news print.
Their profits were simply taken by the paper mills because the
fcituation allowed of extortion. - '
Belief for the publishers came through importations and
from no'other source. In the last six months the price of news
print has been cut in half through Imports and though the price
is still above pre war figures the danger is considered over. . In
this case the only voice the mills could hear was the voice of
i competition from abroad.
' What is true in this line of business-is no doubt true in many
lines. The manufacturer who shot "prices upward during the
war time naturally dislikes to come back to earth. He will keep
his price up as long as he can and let the retailer take the gaff
from the public. But the welfare of the country demands that
prices come down. Until they do come down the buying power
of agriculture, the greatest factor in A mencan business, must re
ruain in a state of partial paralysis and business depression will
be on us.
The Fordney bill is exactly the type of bill that should not
be passed at the present time. If the senate is wise it will refuse
to support this measure which has passed the house and now
iiwaits approval by the senate.
Fatty Arbuckle was evidently unable to stand" prosperity,
lie won pronounced success as a film star but he did not have
the brains or the character to carry the role after he had at
tained hi fame. He became conceited over his wealth and
thought he could do anything. He is now behind the bars
charged with a dastardly crime. Whatever the outcome of the
ckse may be the bubble of his popularity is bnrsted. The public
is willing t be lenient with theatrical stars but Arbuckle went
