The Oregonian carries the follow
ing head line: "Cattle and Sheep
Starving to Death. State Officer
Churchill after a trip thru Eastern
Oregon says that losses reaching into
millions of dollars and involving
hundreds of thousands of head of
stock will result. The inability of
many stockmen to buy hay at any
price and with bank credits exhaust
ed have brought about a condition
bound to result in loss by starvation
of hundreds of thousands of head of
stock in the next few months."
What a condition for a nation with
all the gold of the world piled up In
its vaults. The Federal Reverve li
quidated the farmer into the agonies
of hell. Today his credit at the bank
not only shuts him off from hay for
his stock but food for his children.
When all else has gone does a na
tion or state recognize the credit in
character. Should a nation or state
lift a hand for a dying industry that
spells economic loss in the future?
Why should a Federal Reserve board
deny the seating of a farmer as a
member? Why does the Federal Re
serve board build a twenty four mil
lion money temple on Wall Street
when the Western Plains are litter
ed with dying cattle and sheep?
Washington representatives and state
officials what of the present and the
future of your state?

COLD WEATHER HAS NO TERROR FOR
MORROW AND UMATILLA CANDIDATES
Reports Indicate that fruit trees
were frozen, some beyond recall, dur
ing the past cold snap.
Political plums, however, seem to
have been untouched by the frost,
but not beyond recall, perhaps.
At any rate the candidates were
not chilled in their ardor for offices.
The ring is getting all cluttered
up with hats.
E. P. Dodd has shied his top piece
into the circle and comes out for
joint representative from Umatilla
and Morrow counties, since C. E.
Woodson has declared he will not
run again. Mr. Dodd was a mem
ber of the 1919 regular session and
the 1920 special session, and feels
that on account of his experience he
can ably fill the job.
He tells us that he wants the job
so that the irrigated sections of these
two counties may be well represent
ed, Mr. Dodd being the founder of
the city of Boardman on the West
Extension of the Umatilla project in
Morrow county, and owning and
farming irrigated land near Hermis
ton in Umatilla county. He will
work for the McKay creek dim above
all else, he says. If the irrigated
sections grow so will the stock In
dustry, for the stockman wants
alfalfa for feed for the cattle and
But Mr. Dodd will have several
rivals. Dr. J. Perry Conder of Hep
pner, has announced his candidacy
in this weeks issue, and the Heppner
SPRING HAS CAME?
At last after the longest stretch
of winter weather in a score or more
of years, it is chlnooking today.
Hold your breath.
THE HOME MERCHANT
Mid pleasures and palaces though I may wend, I find
the home merchant a much-valued friend. . . . The
mail-order catalogue woos me in vain, for to pay-without-seeing
may bring me a pain. . . . The home merchant
credits till pay-day arrives, he knows all the whims of
his friends and their wives. His overalls wear like the
busk-skin of old, his buttons ain't brass if he tells you
they're gold ! Of every community he is a part, and even
the kids know the path to his heart. He boosts for the
chapel, the lodge and the school, "Community uplift" is
ever his rule. . . . And even the foot ball and basket
ball teams, look kindly on him, in their athletic dreams.
. . . . I'd rather have him at my elbow each day, than
to deal ith a shark, many furlongs away. . . . Let's
make the thing mutual, and stand by our friend, there's
no place tike home, for the money we spend.
"On Friday it became known that
friends of E. M. Hulden were urging
him to become a candidate for rep
resentative and it seems to be gener
ally understood that he will have
strong support from the farming in
terests. Mr. Hulden is an extensive
wheat farmer in the Blackhorse dis
trict." Frank Sloan has made) no an
nouncement as to whether he will
again he a candidate for representa
tive from Umatilla county or not,
but he is being urged to again make
the race on account of his experience
George Bleakman of Hardman,
present incumbent, has announced
hit candidacy for re-election as com
missioner, and Ralph Bongo, a re
tired rancher living in Heppner, may
come out for the nomination.
Boardman and Irrlgon have grown
to sufficient size to be entitled to a
commissioner, but the republicans
have put up no one thus far.
Mayor G. C. Blayden has been
urged to become a candidate and
may decide to do so. While Mr.
Blayden is a democrat, we know of
no one who could so ably represent
Boardman's interests., He Is the
mayor of the city, U. S. Land Com
missioner, and well posted on public
matters. He knows the needs of the
north end of the county and the Mir
ror will be with him heartily if he
decides to run.
