Dalles, tried and sentenced to one
year in the state penitentiary for
stealing $80.00 in money and a
watch chain valued at $65.00 from
Sam Makano, Japanese section fore
man at Nena.
The Spick had been at work on
the section, but had laid off two or
three days prior to Tuesday. He
quit his job Monday evening, and
Tuesday morning took the train for
Portland. V Shortly before he left
Nena the foreman missed the watch
chain and money. Suspecting the
Mexican, he phoned to Agent Grif
fin and that gentleman immediately
got in touch with headquarters at
Wishram. A special agent was soon
on the job. He met the train at Oak
Brook and found his man, whom he
placed under arrest. The Mex was
taken to The Dalles, had a hearing,
pleaded guilty and at 10:30 had re
ceived a sentence, of one year in the
pen, and in a few minutes after was
on his way to the state bastilo. The
arrest was made by Special Agent

By arrangement with the manage

A BIG RESPONSIBILITY
Management of Provincial Power
Plant Refrain From Publishing
Report Too Voluminous.
One of the vividly interesting
publications on economics printed
in 1925 is the volume by James
Mavor, Emeritus Professor of Poli
tical Economy in the University of
Toronto. Prof. Mavor entitles his
book: "Niagara in Politics." He
goes into detail on the electrical
development of power from Nia
gara Falls in Canada. It is a full
exposition of what might happen in
Oregon, if the "water and power"
constitutional amendment were
passed next November, as proposed
by the Housewives Council, Inc. -
Let us take one statement from
this book: "The excuse of the
Government for refraining from
publishing the report was that the
text was too voluminous." This
illustrates the fart that details of
political business management are
seldom revealed to the public. The
hydro commission described was
charged with habitual extrava-
grance, which may be contrasted
with its petty economy in failing to
publish an official document telling
of its shortcomings, on the ground
that it was to long.,
Oregon's problem is not to be,
solved by giving five persons, with
out adequate engineering, indus-
trail of business training, full power .
tO establish antf opeiate mfiatef--owned
system with public funds.
Development of electricity on the
farm and in rural or suburban dis
tricts is progressing, and all needs
will be supplied; but state socialism
is not the way this will be ac
complished. ' -i
Even if a "water and power"
amendment could be drawn that
would guarantee responsible man
agement of the vast public funds to
be placed at the board's disposal,
it would still be an unnecessary and
dangerous experiment fo the State
to embark upon. With no safe
guards whatever, administrative,
financial or otherwise, its adoption
would be suicidal for the taxpayers
of the state.
Altnott a Hotpital

the Flat resembles a hospital just

father, is ill with the troubles inci

aged 12 years, is suffering with a

younger son, Leonard, had two of
