TAKEN TO TASK
Editor Killen of the HillsDoro In
dependent has the following to say in
regard to the state labor commissioner,
and the article will elicit many an
amen from the farmers in Oregon as
well as from others. There are many
people who believe that a labor com
missioner should not be taken from
the ranks of employees nor on the
other hand should have been a large
employer of labor. A man who has
been neither is better fitted to deal
exact justice in fulfilling the duties
of the office, if indeed the office is
really necessary. It should not be
forgotten tfiat the commissioner is a
state officer. His rulings vitally af
fect the entire state and do not alone
concern certain employees on one
hand and a certain employer on the
other. In this case the state is the
employer and the taxpayers scattered
throughout the state are the ones who
pay the money. This year in partic
ular, when multiplication of commis
sions like that of Mr. Hoff's and a
line of legislation all involving heavy
expenditures have raised taxes to a
point that they are oppressive, Mr.
Hoff rules that eight hour legislation
applies to all state employees, and Hie
already overburdened taxpayer faces
a further increase to pay the addi
tional employees made necessary by
Mr. Hoff's interpretation of the law.
In Washington County the major
ity of the taxpayers are farmers.
They have no eight hour work day,
and if they had they could not pay
the taxes made necessary by numer
ous commissions and laws they
evolve. The commissioner may write
reams of communications to the press
explaining his position, but he can
never explain it to the man cultivating
a small farm and sometimes working
two eight hour days every 24 hours
in order to support his family, keep
out of debt and pay taxes wrung from
his pocket by purely class legislation.

J. J. Seaton, a rancher west of
Hood River, who declares that his net
profit from the sales of slaughtered
hogs during the past year has approx
imated $1500, is making the valley as
famous for its large-weight hogs as
for its apples.
This rancher buys hogs from hisn
neighbors, feeds them on swill collect
ed from local hotels and grain. He
has slaughtered two hogs during the
past year, each of which weighed,
when dressed, more than 700 pounds.
One of them tipped the scales at 727
Irving grange of the village of Ir

and has asked the Pomona grange to
adopt them, as being favorable to a
law prohibiting county officials from

such as may be originally their own.
The grange has also gone on record
as believing that all county offic

board of equalization should bo tax
payers of the county.

"Oak Lodge," the ranch home of
John M. Root on Kings Highway, in
the outskirts of Medford, was Inst
week sold to C. W. Abercrombie, of

five acres of alfalfa and a $10,000
residence, built in the midst of the

WHAT INFLUENCED THE PORT
The commissioners who had the lo
cating of the auditorium seem to have
been influenced by some other cause
than that of pleasing the public at
large. They have recommended the
East side location. This is beyond
question an outrage on the state of
Oregon. First, because it seems to
an outsider to play into the hands
of the Portland Street Railway. Sec
ond, because its location is at a point
where the masses can not reach it
without delay in the matter of trans
portation. The West side is the only
reasonable location. All the Wil
lamette Valley traffic lands on the
west side and both electric lines trav
erse its principal streets.
The east side location will take a
heavy toll in both time and annoy
ance from the public. Better recind
that decision and give the public what
J. H. Klein, teacher in the Port
land Trades School, has been selected
as eligible for a course of instruction
in the trades school at Munich, Ger
many. The German government each
year extends free scholarships in this
school to about 20 educators of the
United Slates. These men are chosen
by the Government Bureau of Educa
tion ot Washington.
Different men leave different monu
ments by which they are remembered
after their passing to the world be
yond. A Mr. Lawrence of New York,
who died last month was married
eleven times. He will be remembered
by his friends as the man whose
funeral was attended by "several of
his former wives."
When you find it is easy to feel
a contempt for the man who does not
agree with you, it means that you are
becoming narrow and bigoted and los
ing your horse sense. Most of your
neighbors will discover this fact about
you before you will realize it yourself.
During the past week the Observer
has received nine different letters
from different candidates for state
offices with a request to publish free.
