PROSPERITY STILL PROSPDRS.
.Many times in the past two years,
the prophets of evil and the over
wise have issued warning thnt the
crest of our prosperity httd been
renched,nnd that a dechue was im
mediately iti prospect. x Hut the
general prosperity has continued
unabated,-new heights hnve been
reached and the prophets hnve re
tired in more or less coni'usion, much
to the relief of the country.
Now the Orcgonirfh is seeing
things. It expresses the opinion
that u decline is at hand, but the
chief reason for this view appears
to be. that labor strikes of the past
fewmonths have not .been success
ful.'.lt is true-tlmr the strike in
rortlanu taiicu to make any per
ceptible winniug and in some other
localities a similar record has been
made. Hut it is hardly to escape
notice that the most extensive ad
duces in wage that any industry
hasjwituesscd in ears has taken
place this year, namely, among rail
way operatives. Telegraph opera
tors,engi:je men, train men, ofhee em
ployees and even section hands have
been recognized with higher pay.
These advances did not come as a
result of strikes, it is tme, but they
were demanded by organized labor,
with the alternative of a strike but
thinly veiled. Hoth parlies con
sented to negotiations by which
labor's demand was met without
going to that extremity.
And then there is the very no
table case of the strike of boiler
makers and machinists on the
Union Pacific. That was settled a
few seks ago, after nearly a year,
by practical surrender to the strik
ers. The strikers got a radical
modificatfbn of the piece-work UnSls
of nay, which was the heart of the
contention, with full recognition of
their Organization and a definite
agreement for joint consultation in
the future. Labor is still winning
its share of the battles with capital.
Portland Jacks much of being the
whole labor situation.
Now comes the hard fact that the
iron and steel industry, which all
adnijt to be' the best indicator of
prosperity, shows undiminished
vigor. At the quarterly meeting of
the United States Steel Corporation
last week the surprising statement
was. imide that die advance orders
already-booked materially exceeded
those of the same date last year,
particularly in steel rails for 1904.
Thfe does not indicate railroad stag
nation." Not so many miles of new
track' arc under construction as
have been built in other years, but
thjjj does not mean that times arc
hard dr threatening. This country
13 tolerably well supplied with
transportation lines. The wise
policy now is to perfect those al
ready built by improving tracks
and rolling stock, and that process
goes on at a marvelous rate. It is
unlikely that we shall ever again
see the new mileage that has marked
some of the past years of our prog
ress. Hereafter construction will
lie more devoted to balancing up
systems than to reaching out into
vast undeveloped sections. Of
course new. regious will not be
wholly neglected, but they are ev
ery year becoming fewer and less
Our prosperity has long been nt
its "height and on the verge of de
cline "If," If there should bean
extensive crop failure or a great
financial miscalculation or any one
of a dozen misfortunes avc should

time in the past five years. Our
prosperity is yet on a firm founda

it amounts to a re-compiling of the

year, also, the Oregon lines , of the
Southern Pacific join with the O.

ui proof or the fact that this locality
is increasing in importance rapidly.
Two years ago, or even a year ago,
there was nothing at Hetitl to attract
the townsitc boomer. To be sure,
there was the well-formed plan for
au extensive Irrigation enterprise,
but this was hooted at as nefarious
I in design and .impossible of consum
mation. Nevertheless it has proved
the nucleus for great material ad
vancement in this neck of the woods
ami the faithlcss.ones are not nearly
so numerous as they were.
Let the towns come, ve say.
There is room for all, and without
crowding. iTSschutes and I,ytle
and Ttmiclloftnd the nameless town
at the Sixemore ranch, any or all
of them, will(uot crowd out Head,
though they do flourish like a green

may all be attended to in due rea

or may retard this nuult but it will
come just the same.

Kvery man may be expected to pull
for his own interests first, but that

just what we want let us help our
neighbor to get it; that's better
than driving it out of the country.
This community is already too big

The Crook County Journal, of
Priijeville, is good enough to com
mend some of the recent work of
The Hullctiu for decent citizenship
and decent journalism. This is
gratifying because it shows there is
wide sympathy with the factors that
make and keep the citizen and the
community to a high standard of
character. The Journal's para
