A NEWSPAPER DEAL .
. Clark Wood has bought' of . U.
''Boyd a half-interest in the Athena"
Press, which will hereafter , be own
f.ved and published by Boyd j& Wood.
Clark Wood continues as owner
i and publisher of the Weston
Leader and will assist in the publi-
cation of the Press. ,v
A.Merganthaler linotype typeset-
ing machine has been ordered by
the new firm, and will be installed
" in the office of the Athena Press
upon its arrival. The mechanical
work for both papers will be done
at Athena, but the Weston Leader
will be issued as heretofore from its
office on Main street, Weston, and
Weston will -continue to be the
home of its editor.
Clark Wood is the oldest country
editor in point of service in Uma
tilla county, and second rank in
this respect is held byF. B. Boyd.
The former is very probably the
' dean of country editors in "Eastern
Oregon. He began Jiia newspaper
" career in this section of the state
when a boy of thirteen, thirty-seven
years ago,, and has since been con
stantly in harness. '
The parties to the transaction
' are confident that both the Athena
Press and Weston Leader will be
materially improved through the
co-ordination of modern mechanical
' resources which; 'will be at their
' 'i.iinf liBiM)sal

THE SHANTUNG TREATY
In a recent speech in the, upper
house of Congress Senator MeCum
ber, for twenty years republican
senator" from North Dakota, gave
re tput t. b'Ush -5
uniijcr. Among uuu--r tilings, ne
said: . .,' - .-.':..... ,
"I am satisfied that nt greater brow
;ou!d ever be strunk againut the real
interests of China than by ucb an
"la It an act of true friendship toward
China or a- mere political move to de
feat the treaty? If its sponsor now
Ia!l to come forward and openly pledge
that if Japan is driven out of this
treaty then the United States will pro
seed single-banded and alone to drive
Japan out of China will renew -this
world-war and send our soldiers into
the Orient to fight for her, then by
this act they are betraying China with
l false kiss.
"If, on the other hand, they declare
they will make war to drive Japan out
if China, to prevent Japan receiving
inly those right which the other great
nations of the world Have received,
then they are proclaiming a policy,
n-talch they have assailed as being the
most wicked part of the League of Na
tions a policy of interference with the
quarrels of the old world. Worse than
ihat, while they violently condemn a
(oint agreement with the other great '
white rations of the world to shield
the greater white races from annihila
tion they would send our sons to death .
to defend the inferior yellow races
whom we claim to be no inferior as to
be unfit to associate wj.th. us.
"Either we will, bring both Japan
and China Into this League of Nations,
which by the very terms of Jta provl
ilons will compel Japan to return to
China all the German rights acquired
by Japan, not only by conquest but by
the solemn agreement made by ber
with China herself, or you will drive
Japan out of this treaty wherein she .,

mount to , goarftn(, by all the world
that not only will Japan return to

Never was weather more ideal
for farming operations throughout
this section. As though to atone
for his slumber the past two taring
seasons, the rain god is now grant
ing abundant fall moisture. Sum
mer fallow is clean, and upon their
appearance the young weeds will
fall before the "slicker," leaving
the ground -in fine condition for
seeding. Moreover, a good moun
tain potato crop is now assured.
The Leader is in receipt of a copy
of Oregon Blue Book for 1919-1920
from the office of the Secretary of
State. This is a comprehensive and "
useful publication which should be
in the possession of every voter who
wants to post himself on common
wealth affairs. Copies will be
supplied promptly and without
charge to any citizen of Oregon, ,
upon application to the Secretary off
State. ' ,
The International Typographical
Union has sent printers to Tacoma
to get out the papers and the pres
ident of , the mine workers has
