If the Oregonian states the case
without prejudice, Portland ttapds
quite as much in need of cleaning
up 88 does Eugene. In our case it
is the physical man that is suffering
from contagious engendered by im
pure water and unsanitary condi

One of the best poets of these
days has passed to the great be

Among the writers of recent poetry
Paul Lawrence Dunbar has esood
alone, a negro who witb his beauti
fui poems and 8toriets have helped
people the world round to better
and higher lives, and who in every
country 'but his mother country,
America has received his due merit.
The tales he told brought him
many friends and warm admirers in
this country, but too many could
not forget that color does not beget
stupidity nor dullness. All honor
to the man, who in epite of tbe
hindrances of his race has striven to
and made himself such a name.
Elsewhere we print an article
from the Mining World concerning
the Great Homestake Mining Com
pany of Lead. So. Dakota, which is
a most wonderful statement to any
For 20 years this mine has paid
regular dividends, which have
amounted to $14,333.35. in Edi
tion to vast improvements made at
the expense of millions of dollars,
and all worked out of ore that only
averages $3.37 in value per ton.
In Hohemia such ore would not
be considered worth looking at.
We have, great quantities of low
t'rade ore. which must be mined
and handled. Tbe time is corniug
and that too rapidly, when we will
-ee great plants at nvork in the dm
trit t digging out and reducing the
previous metals. It all takes time
and lots ot it.
The fever situation in Eugene is
exceedingly alarming. Tbe ma

seem to have been using city water,
and to it is attributed all the trouble
The Guard in its Stturday iaiue

paper did tate that Dr. Mataon,
the bacteriologist was coming here.
He won't find any typhoid bacilli
in the town, if be does come and we
don't thank our Eugene friend for
intimating that they grew here.

Iti thermal evolution of policy to
be pursued by forestry official j in
. .! .a
treating with stockmen nesirmg
range privilege:! on reserves, an
important question has already
arisen in Oregou. The supervisor
of tbe Weimha reserve has given
Washington sheepmen lenses on
portions of the reserve in Oregon,
under tbe announcement that the
Washington sheep were wu.t to
feed there during tho summer.
Oregon hbeepmen, protesting
through the Umatilla County
ool (J rower s Association, assert
that much of tbis lauge aeon Jed
Washington as, has been used in tfie
past by them in predatory manner,
and that the action ot the forestry
officials is perpetuating the wr .ng.
The effect ot the present situation
is that Washington men nave a
total of 1 74. ?t!0 sheep on the entire
Wenaha reserve, while the Oregon
meu have a total of but '-5,740.
There is said to be a total of 37,23
Washington sheep on the Uregon
aide, which is more than the Ore
gon people themselves have on
their own side of tho reserve.
Sheep owners paiug taxes in
Umatilla count v insist tlmt they
would use all ot thv Oiegon side of
the range, if not forced cut.
Senator Fulton has been working
with the department to ehatiee t-ueh
a policy, and the cat-e has iceoivcd
itself into a question ot fact. 1 he
department, acting uuder the in
structions of its Wenaha super
visor, proceed on au assumption of
facts which is contradicted by the
sheepmen. The result will be for
mal investigation to learn the real
situation, as ttse Oregon senator in
tends to insist upon fair play, and
will not be content with the mere
statement of offiiials that their
policy is adhering to the former
In making ureliminarv arrange
ments for construction of u mile of
good road on either side of tbe Cas
cades, Senator Fultou has been
urged by Judge John H, Scott, of
Salem, president of the Oregon
Good Roads Association, to strive
at all times to keep the average cost
of work down to the lowest figure.
Judge Scott holds that owing to the
sparse settlement in Oregon, such a
demonstration will have value n
proportion to its permanence and
initial cost. Tbe senator has taken
this point up with the government
officials who will have charge, and
hopes tbat the experimental work
will be a lessen in economy, ab well
in the new science of road construc
Announcement of the Iuterior
Department that reclamation wok
for some time would be confined to
present projects, because available
funds are pledged, is dejecting for
the Orepon workers in Congress.
Oregon's contribution to the rec
lamation fund being larger than
other states, her people txpecpd
proportionate work,- but have ben
dissapointed. The varied troubles
through which the state has passed
made all efforts in her behalf the
year unusually difficult, and just as
thes-e were being swept aside, the
department expressed the purpose
of entering upon no new w ik
Senator Fultou has been contend
ing with tbe Interior Department
tor a long time that hjs state had
as many practicable projects ror
re-cUmation as any other, and
hould be given money in piopor

Thene eases of glaring violations
of the laws of right conduct, should
not blind the eyes to the doings of
many men and women of vast
wealth. Great wealth in the dis
posal of Helen Gould has proved a
blessing to hosts of needy souls.
Wealth in the bands of (lirard,
Drew, Tulane, Peabody, Cooper,
Drexel, and literally hundreds of
others has been of vast service to
the race. To this spirit fhe coun
try owes the establishment of hun
dreds of libraries, numerous hos
pitals, seminaries, colleges and uni
versities, tenement bouses and
equipmeuts, Y. M C. A. buildings,
homes for the woik of social settle
ments, beautiful parks in the cities,
and hundreds of other applications
to the betterment of the race. It is
but natural to ascribe to the donor
a selfish impulse perhaps it is true
but few would prevail in their
contention against the value to the
public. Tbe tendency of the day is
to look for the t pots on the sun.
