that the people of Oregon not he

electric power. They would
fctiflie the heritage the Creator
gave you tefore you could say
yes or no. You are not to be al
lowed to vo ce your desires by

ampere dispensers fell on the
ears of an "unsaved Senate"

state of Oregon is in the hands

i observation of a Boardman man
who says: "Some eight years
ago I gave up hope of the Gov

these lands. I went to Portland
to interest tbe Pacific Power fc

of Plymouth Rock, the bunch of
us today would be back in Wales
separating coal iro:n slate, or
trundling peat from the bogs of
Ireland. The company wanted
Sr".! per H P. for six months use
and a mortgage on tbe ranch.
The fact that I already had a bet
with the Government that I

veoted me from taking on the

The Bon rd man Mirror,
We are in receipt of the Hoard
man Mirror, volume one, number
one, published at Stanfield by
M A Cleveland.
The Mirror is a bright looking
newspaper, well tilled with ads
and speaks well for thecommun
ity represented from a financial
standpoint, and the news columns
are written well and look oetter
than the average country week
ly. We wish Editor Cleveland and
the people of Boardman every
success with the new venture.
Boardman needs a newspaper,
md we are glad to see them
have one. Hermiston Herald.
