Someday the Celio canal will
be completed. When the people
of Portland realize fully that its
completion will double the value
of every foot of land in that city,
and lots of it outside, ' the real
estate speculators and big land
owners will impress it upon our
Congressmen that they must
come through with enough to
complete it in short order. It
is of more importance to Oregon
and Portland than even the tariff
on lumber or beans.
Tt is rather soon to mention
Congressional timber, but Uma
tilla county has a man who went
to the legislature last January,
kept his pledge to the people,
didn't try to crawfish on any of
pledges and returned to the
jieople without any shadow of
cowardise, imbecility or dishon
e.sty. He comes from Athena.
livery once in a while some
new enterprise is projosed in
the section around Kcho. Some
of them are on paper; but we
have so many thousand acres
now under irrigation systems,
with good water in them and
plenty of it, that we are too
busy to keep track of the new
ones until the dirt begins to fly.
Wheat gamblers are playing
at selling wheat but when the
harvest comes, the farmer will
get beaten. When' the wheat
is all sold out anil the farmer
has none left then the gamblers
will get buy and the grangers
will be bereft.

It pays to beautify and im
prove your property, and it pays
a town as a whole to look as if
it were alive, proud of its exist
ence, confident of its future and
not ashamed of its apearance.
Taxation is to be studied by
the (J rangers of Oregon. It has
long been a favorite study of
corporation lawyers. As a re
sult of these studies the farmer
has caught the burdens of some
other divisions of society.
Ex Senator Simon of Portland
is the regular Republican nomi
nee for Mayor, and it is the
duty of every Republican to vote
for him- if he feels like it. If
the Honorable Senator will keep
enough of his friends in the
field as independent candidates
he will be elected.

Pendleton That he shot to save

The sheep must have a good shelter
from the snow aud sleet aud cold rains

Is the best for sheep In the winter.
