The facts, however, show aouunff 01
the sort asserted. They merely snow
what everyone knowa. that almost any
body in Orefron will sign almost any
kind of aa initiative or referendum
petition in order to get rid of the can
vasser in the easiest and quickest way.
Given a week's time, an efficient organ
isation and ample funds with which to
pay solicitors at the rate of from five
to ten cents per name, and it would
perhaps be possible to get the required
number of signers in Oregon to a bill
dispensing with sll of its state institu
tions. We know that a few years ago
a-sa easy enough to get a sufficient
number .of signers for an exasperating
referendum bold-op of the general ap
propriation bill for their support.
"Secondly, that Pendleton ia far and
away the most desirable place for the
location of a normal school for East
ern Oregon," ia a banal bit or bal
derdash. Weston ia a more desirable
location than Pendleton, with far more
beautiful surroundings six! with cli
mate that ia cooler in summer and
warmer In winter. Moreover, as the
Pendleton papers and boosters are care
ful to avoid mentioning. Weston al
ready contains a state school plant em
braced within ten acres of ground pre
sented to the state by the community.
Buildings and grounds have an approxi-
mate value of t75,000. In the name of
common sense, reason ana economy
hy should the people of Oregon be
asked to continue the abandonment of
175,000 achool plant at Weston in or
der to build a 1125,000 plant at Pendle
ton? Jumping Jehooopbat, what a
puerile, piffling proposition for Demen
tia burg to love itself for making! Pen

Weston is as fslse as hell. The Weston
Norma was the largest in Oregon when
abandoned by the state senate in 1909
through the connivance of Pendleton
men. With an uncertain income of
only 12, 000 a year it had so many non
resident students that they overflowed
the dormitories and filled a number of
outside cottages when the school re
ceived its death blow at the hands, in
directly, of a then powerful Pendleton
politician who thus sought to punish
Weston for helping to defeat him for
the Oregon governorship. Entirely in
nocent and neutral in this and an other
political campaigns, the normal achool
was nevertheless made to suffer vicar
iously for Weston's alleged offenses.
The Monmouth Normal receives at
this time thrice as much annually in
maintenance as the Weston Normal
ever received. It asked in addition at
the last session for an appropriation for
improvements, and got it. We under
stand thst it will ssk at the next ses
sion for a large sum for an entire new
plant, which it will probably get also.
The Monmouth Normal is a big and
growing school and in every wsy Justi
fies its maintenance. The point we
wish to bring out is that the Weston
Normal would by this time hsve un
doubtedly been just as large and just
ss useful bad it been accorded similar
The Monmouth Normal is bested in
a town no larger than Weston, yet it is
most decidedly "a successful institu
tion." The leading normal school
states of the East, such as Massachu
setts, New York and Pennsylvania,
distribute many normal schools among
as many small towns. . Pendleton is,
in fact, too large for a normal school.
It offers the student too msny divers
ions of doubtful value or propriety. At
Weston the non-resident student was
and would again be at all times under
the immediate surveillance of the fac
ulty. Non-resident parents who en
trusted their boy to Pendleton's tender
mercies would be apt to get him back a
sophisticated worldling which would
be all right, of course, if they went
him thst wsy. ' !

Notwithstanding the obviously log

very poor policy for the frteaoa of lh

In the first place, there la no such

Faced by demandi from the conductor!, englneeri, firemen and brakemen -that
would impoie on the country an additional burden in transportation costs ol
$100,000,000 a year, the railroads propose that this wage problem be settled by
reference to an impartial Federal tribunal. t
With these employes, whose efficient service is acknowledged, the railroads
have no differences that could not be considered fairly and decided justly by aucb
t public body.
Railroads Urge Public Inquiry and Arbitration
The formal proposal of the railroads to the employes for the settlement ol
the controversy is as follows:

''-' Leaders Refuse Offer and Take Strike Vote
Leaders of the train service brotherhoods, at the joint conference held in New ;
York, June 1-15, refused the offer of the railroads to submit the issue to arbitration
or Federal review, and the employes are now voting on the question whether
authority shall be given these leaders to declare a nation-wide strike,
. The Interstate Commerce Commission is proposed by the railroads as tht ,
public body to which this issue ought to be referred for these reasons:

A Question For the Public to Decido
The railroads feel that they have no right to grant a wage preferment of
$100,000,000 a year to these employes, now highly paid and constituting only 9

shall determine the merits of the case after a review of all the facts. . " ,
