Visualizing all this growth, the
practical-minded cititens of Oregon
have united in opposition to the
experimental measure proposed for
hydro-electric development in Ore
gon under the direction of a boaid
named in the Housewives' Council

comes up for decision by voters in

In the case of the proposed irri

results in revenues, that this com

It means practically doubling the
state dept of Oregon without assur
ance of revenue returns. It is ex
perimental, rlaky and unsound fi
nancially. Without going into the
text of tho measure, it may be stated
positively thut the tax paver, repre
sented by the general fund, is
availablo in the case tho Housewives'
Council's scheme does not provide
money for interest and principal as
they fall due. Beyond this, the
plants after construction may be
plastered with certificates of in
debtedness which are really mort
gages on the physical property of
the state. The scheme in visionary,
unsupported by sound thinking
citizens, and should be defeated at
the polls in Noveuber. .

Rod Makers Return
Harry and Charles Redding, the
gentlemen who were here last winter
and who demonstrated great ability
as fish rod builders, have returned
from the fruit and hop fields and
will remain until spring. While they
are here they will build or wrap rods
and as their work speaks for itself,
no doubt will have all they can do
while in Maupin.
Horned Toad Rancher Home

Morris Greene has been under the
weather for the past 10 weeks, al

its finny beauties.
False Fire Alarm
The sound of the fire siren called
the members of the fire department
from the peaceful trend of business
this morning. When Chief Chalmers
and his men turned out the fire was
found to be a false alarm. The mot
or running the Butler refrigerating
machine had gotten into some dif
ficulty with the belt and caused the
latter to get heated up, causing a
dense smoke. That's all.

Real Business Man
Portland, Ore. (Spl)- What Ore

date for governor, told the people of
the state in a radio address, the first
such talk be has made in the cam
paign, here last night. He pledged
himself to a careful, economic, business-like
management of state af
fairs. "The more nearly we regard
the business of the state as business,
the better public officers will aerve
the taxpayers," he said.
That business principles may re
place political ideas in coducting
state affairs, Patterson proposes, as
governor, to follow a strict budget
system and desires that the governor
system onu uu&irus umi. uie guveruur

In that way, he believes, responsi

and the governor will be held to
strict account in expending 1 state
"If the governor has the power to
make the state budget and to offer to
the lesislature the suggestion of
proper appropriation bills, control
the amount required for state ex
penses," he said. ,
"No business could long prosper if for immediate attention to improve

"Money can be saved to the state
by careful investigation of the
state's requirments for a period of
years and then by having appropria
tions made each year for those im
provements only which are absolute
ly necessary for that year. In other
words, in spending for the present,
we should consider very serlouly
those expenditures in their relation
to future requirements and future
t at burdens."
Would Join With Maupin
' Several residents of the Nena
district have taken the matter or a
separate school district up with
County Superintendent Gronewald
and that official has promised to
look into the merits of the case.
Nena is in the Wapinltia district,
but as many mountains and canyons
are between Nena and Wapinitla
ranchers find it impossible to send
their children to school on the Flat.
Those who have children of school
age rather incline to the idea that to
join to District No. 84 would be the
best way out of the difficulty. The
county superintendent is expected
to be here shortly and go over the
situation with those interested.
Crofoot Now a Rancher.
Charley Crofoot has"tired of the
sound of the anvil and has retired to
a farm. Last week he traded his
Wamic property for the horses, cat
tle and othe livestock on the Wm.
Johnson ranch and immediately
moved thereto. Charley says there
is just as much money in cows as in
shoeing horses, sharpening plow
shares and selling gas,' therefore
will devote his time to marketing
cream. May good luck attend him.

Political control of the penitenti
ary, Patterson said, has been the
cause of great inefficiency and
"We have the example of the ap
pointment of six wardens at the
penitentiary in a period of six
years," he said. "No private busi
ness could prosper with - annual
changes of managers, no matter how
able the managers. I favor placing
the penitentiary under the board of
control, as it is the only state in-
tltution not now under the board,
0 that the tenure of office at the

upon merit, as it does at other state
institutions. This is the only way
to remove it from politics. We can
then reduce the cost and hope, in
time, to make it self sustaining."

make the board of control the
parole board, thus removing

ment were widly scattered, he said,
resulting in the waste of taxpayers'
money. He projoses to consolidate
such offices, effecting savings in
rentals and adding to the conveni
ence of the public.
Completion of the Roosevelt high-
'way so soon as funds are available
was favored and Patterson spoke
problems, for reforestation and
other sound policies.
"As governor," he said, "I will de
vote my full time to the duties of
the office and will require the same
service of all those who are serving
the state under my direction. Em
ployes of the state should work for
the state and not as political agents
for any candidate. What Oregon
most needs now is an administration
following well defined , business
principles and an elimination of the
waste that comes from an adminis
tration of politics."
Dollies Being Caught
More Dolly Varden trout are be
ing caught in the Deschutes at this
place at this time than for some
time past. A camper on the east
side puled a large one from the
water Sunday and the same day
Tom Henneghan succeeded in land
ing another big fellow. Other fish
ermen report catching dollies. -
Brand New Piano. (
"Music hath charms to sooth a
savage breast," and also has its ef
fect on a Scotchman. That this is so
was shown by F. D. Stuart and wife,
who installed a brand new Smith &
Barnes piano in their home Tuesday.
The instrument is a beautiful piece
of furniture, has excellent tone and
is a fitting ornament in the parlor of
the Stuart residence.
Ground Finger With Meat.
Jack Morrow had the misfortune
to get a finger in the meat grinder
at Butler's Monday and now is nurs

The Dalles Tuesday and received
surgical treatment for the wound.
On Another Deer Hunt
W. II. Williams and son, Johnnie,
left Saturday for the Blue Moun

Bill was not satisfied with the re
sult of his last foray into the wilds,
so went after a real deer this time.
Hints and Suggestions
Department of Agriculture's Bulletin
Containa Much of Worth
30 Minutes to Batter
The proper temperature at which
to churn cream varies with local and
seasonal conditions. A good rule is
to adjust the churning temperature
so that the churning period will be
about 30 minutes.
Food for Dry Cowi
Dry cows will consume almost as
much roughage as those in milk.
Silage may well form the principal
ingredient of the ration. If given 25
to 40 pounds of silage and about 5 to
6 pounds of clover, cowpea, or alfal
fa hay a day, the cows will keep in
good flesh and even make some gain.
Those in thin flesh should receive
in addition a small amount of grain.
Some grain during the dry period is
Hay for Poor Landi
Where it is necessary to raise hay
on poor clay lands, orchard grass,
tall toa-grass, and alsike mixture

some places in the middle west sweet

soil conditions. There are no
perennial hay plants that will pro-

FOR POLITICAL GAIN
laney Juggles Figures and
Makes Bombastic Talk
In His Campaign
HAS THE WRONG DOPE
Entertains Peculiar Ideas Regard
ing Compact Body to Assist Ad
ministration at Washington
Haney's contention that a divided
delegation at Washington is more ef
fective than one united and in har
mony with the administration should
fall upon unheeding ears. Particu
larly so when in support of his con
tention he quotes inaccurate figures.
He said at a recent speech at La
Grande that while Oregon was mak
ing every effort to get $375,000,
Washington was given recognition
for reclamation purposes to the
amount of 18,000,000.
Both figures are wrong. That
for Washington should be $9,000,
000 and that for Oregon $30,000,
000. Washington, with a divided
delegation in the United States
senate, won the Kittitas project that
will cost $9,000,000. Oregon, with
a united team of senators, won the
Oywhee, Vale and Baker projects,
costing $20,000,000, $5,000,000 and
$5,000,0etrespectively. The Baker
project was later held up by Secre
tary Work, but that had nothing to
do with the senatorial delegation's
It is true that this money is not
yet in hand and neither is that the
case in Washington. Small portions
of the cost have been appropriated

these projects has been defined.
Washington, too, acconmplishe'l
less thm appears on the face of the
figures foMhe case of the Kitti
tas project it was" required that the
state of Washington , 'guarantee
settlement This was hot the case
with the Oregon projects.
This state has had divided dele
gations at Washington before and a
complete answer to Haney is to look
hack and tot up appropiations made
then and compare it with those made
when both senators were in harmony
with the party in power.
Oregon wants a republican sena
tor and not one who can't call upon
the president, much lew have any
influence wi:h him.
Returns to California.
Mrs. Fendal Batty and her sister,
Mrs. Effa Stanford and the letter's
son, Fendal Batty, left for their

California, last Thursday. They

the sterring wheel. The visitors
were called here by the death of Mrs.
