V "For some La' meat arid canna eat,
And some ha' Done that want it;
' " ', ," ' But we ha' meat and can eat,
And m the Lord be thank'it."
The old vers e is canny, somewhat selfish, .wholly human, but lacks
the spirit of christian charity.
' " Thankfulness is a christian virtue pure and simple. The ancient
Gauls and Teutons, like the Romans and Greeks in this one respect,
despised thankfulness as they did mercy. ,In their eyes, to be grateful,
' except for victorious war, was an expression of weakness. The ancient
Orientals could not understand mercy and were never thankful except
for the chance to gratify their lust for blood. ; The modern dwellers in
the far East, the Chinese, Japanese and Malays, particularly the snake
like Malays that are Uncle Sam's wards, the Filipinos and Moros,
cannot comprehend the Occidental, christian feelings of thankfulness or
mercy. They ascribe such "weakness" to. cowardice, fear or diplomacy, I
and a thousand years of teaching will not broaden their natural limi
' While thankfulness is a christian virtue, its practice is circum
scribed by our savage,instincts. We cannot all be Christ like in char
ity, brotherly love and kindness, but most of us are pretty well satisfied
we are doing the best we can in that direction. Lucky that it is so or
there would be few who would enjoy' their turkey today, even here in
prosperous Wallowa county, for is there not a multitude of hungry
brothers and sinters even in this favored land of the free?
So we'll be thankful for the plentitude of blessings given us for
rich soil, healthful climate, beautiful scenery and exceptional surround
ings both of persons and things and will enjoy the gifts the gods have
bestowed on us, especially good appetites and the means to satisfy them.
Out in the world the money grubbers are toiling and sweating in
fear and ahic; the Harrimans and Rockefellers are killing their thous
ands and tens of thousands in an economic war to gratify their petty
malice and hatred; the money kings have entered recklessly but con
fidently their champion Mammon in a death struggle with' the young
giant Democracy but here in beautiful Wallowa county all is lovely,
peaceful and plenteous, so, let us eat, drink and be merry. , '
Too Sensible For Adoption.
Congress will meet next Monday and its committee on- banking
nd currency will go into labor, and bring forth a mouse.
The committee will spend nine-tenths of its time listening to pleas
And plans by the backers of the Wall street gamblers, the New York
bankers, most of whom are stock gamblers themselves, and who pur
posely caused the present money panic and scarcity.' " '
Their pleas and plans will revolve around some scheme for "asset
currency,", to give "elasticity" to the slock of m.ney in circulation.
By elasticity they mean, though they don't say. a plan hv which the
amount of money may be increased when the New York banks need it
to loan to gamblers, and decreased when the people need it for business.
That the present panic was purposely sturted by New .Yoik finance
kings to "show". Roosevelt and other crunks and anarchists who are
insisting On honesty in high places, is a belief- not confined to laymen,
or the poor and Inconspicuous. The ablest newspapers in the United States
charge It-suoh papers aa the Oregonlan, Chicago Record-Herald and Cleve
land rlaindealer. : Prominent business men, governor and congressmen shy it.
George W. Hyatt, president of the Wallowa National bank of Enternrlw..
believes the pan lo was purposely brought on by the New York backers of
stock gambling. Mr. Hyatt proposes a novel but a seemingly practical plan to
prevent the money. of the people from being the plaything of Wall street. - It Is
to have the United States treasury be the reserve center of the country, in
which the banks would carry deposits on which, they would draw bills of
exchange. This reserve money oould be seut to different parts of the country
as It was ueedud for Urge business purposes,' such as to finance the moving pf
crops. Mr. Hyatt also .likes the, proposition for the government to guarantee
the deposits in national banks, levying a tax on such banks In proportion to
oeposiia to cover an expense. - jjiua tor this have been, before eougresu several
times but "die when they strike that banking and currency committee. W.
J. Bryan has come out for government and state guarantees of deposits.
: . With such a system In operation as proposed by Mr. Hyatt, and eoveru-
ment guaranty of deposits, no Wall street panic oould disturb the real business
luterests of the couutry.'aud runs ou banks would be unknown.
Who Is Using the Money!
The Wallowa Bun man glanced at the total, $27,773, given as the county's
resources ui me semi-annual siaiemeni, ana tragically exclaims, "Who is using

County Treasurer F. A. Reavls Is under a $26,000 bond, signed by such
meu as Aaron Wade, George 8. Craig, W. R. Holme and others certainly a
gilt-edged afl'alr. There la now about $17,600 county money on hand In the
general fund or enough to pay ruunlng expenses with a small margin for con
tingencies until the tax money begins to come in next spring. The money In
. the special funds will all be paid out Any man with a county warrant can
.demand and will receive Instant payment' of same without discount That's
the result of the oouuty being out of debt. If last year's debt was still on the
county, a man who did $2 worth of work for the county would receive a piece
of paper that he oould possibly sell for $1.60 at the present time, if, Indeed, he
. oould find a buyer at all. ' . v
The completion of (be O. R,' A N.'luto this valley would add from SO to
.85 per cent to the value of Wallowa county products. Men In position to
know say an electrlo road to Walla Walla, which has Columbia river rates,
would so farther reduce freight rates that nearly as much more would be
, added to the value of this county's product, over the Increase by the first rail
