Bend faces an opportunity for
showing its metal. The towusitc
interestMr. Drake hns put be
tween $30,000 aud $35,000 into the
railroad right of way. The Lyth
townsitc people have donated $ti,
000 or fir, 000 to the same cause.
This left n lew cases to be adjusted
by, the citizens of Bend in general,
and it is found that the sum ot
$7,875 is needed for the purpose
What will Bend do about it?
Of course Bend will raise the
money, nnd do it promptly and
cheerfully. By doing so it will uoi
only do its duty, a duty which can
not be shirked, but in n manner
that will redound to its credit and
establish its character as a vigorous,
enterprising, broad-guaged business
commuuity. This will of itself be
worth the money to a youug town
Those who have already contrib
uted to the railroad right of way by
sacrificing or exchanging property
have shown thrir good will and
good sense in a substantial manner.
Theirs is a most honorable and ad
mirable record. Specul attention
is directed to the names on the front
page of this paper, which should
head the Roll of Honor in Bend as
pioneers, in unselfish co-operation
for the common good. They will
stand as an inspiration to broader
patriotism as distinguished from
miserly money-grubbing. It docs
not require a brass band, or even a
wide mouth, or much "tin," to es
tablish character as citizens who
Ko make a community progressive and

The Portland Oregonian's unholy
espousal of the "assembly" as a
means ior defeating popular gov
ernment leads it into comical situa
tions. It professes to see inconsist
ency in the condemnation ot the
political "assembly" by the Feder
ation of Labor and by the Grange,
themselves assembled for delibera
tion and action. That the Oregon
ian's contention in this matter is the
purest gammon no one knows bet
ter than itself. The Federation of
Labor and the Grange, fraternal
societies and churches, are organ
ized. to promote the interests of cer
tain affiliated collections of earnest
persons along definite lines. Col
lectively and individually these peo
ple have the right to express politi
cal opinions. They do not assume
to set themselves up to govern the
mass of the people, but they do pro
test against a choice clique of dis
credited politicians taking charge,
by means of the holy "assembly,"
of the ship of state from which they
were recently forced by the voters
to walk the plank. Either the Fed
eration or the Grange is quite as
representative of the people as the
Oregonian's sacred "assembly"
would be. If these bodies were to
attempt to conduct the civil govern
ment of the state it would be no
more monstrous thaiifor a little
gang of crooked polMeians to arro
gate to themselves the same power.
The ''assembly" move is an at-

tempt to organize political graft so
that the higher-ups may skim the
cream of it without crawling in the
muck at the bottom.
President Tail's hope that a hun
dred million dollars a year may be
saved by more methodical and ra
tional conduct of the government
departments is not a wild one. The
government usually pays twice as
much as necessary to accomplish its
results. There are exceptions, but
these do not affect the truth of the
general statement. It is pretty'wcll
established that it costs the govern
merit to reclaim arid lands thrice as
much as the work can be done for
by private enterprise. Look at the
expense of the government trans
port service as compared with the
similar work of the private corpora
tinns and individuals in the mer
chant marine, and then think of the
corresponding extravagance carried
throughout the naval establishment.
The lack of system also is very ex
pensive. An article may be con
demned by one department and
bought extensively by another de
partment. The price paid by one
department is frequently materially
different from the price paid by on
other. The commandant of the
Mare Island navy yard some time
ago asked for a lot of fine office
furniture, and his requisition wa
disallowed at Washington. There
upon he directed the navy yard car
penters to make the furniture and
the bill Was paid from the construc
tion funds of the navv department
an expenditure distinctly disal
lowed anrt yet paid at a higher rate
by the government. The army and
navy are frightfully expensive from
lack ot baslnes methods, and also,
it must be admitted, from n more or
less dishonest administration in the
interest of an aristocratic caste that
has fastened its tentacles about
those establishments. More than
$100,000,000 annually should be
saved by proper organization and
service in the departments at
The local newspaper is the best
publicity agent any town can have.
It works all the time, boom or no
boom, pay or no pay. While it
serves a certain important purpose
as nothing else can, it does not oc
cupy the whole field where public
ity may be useful to such commun
ities as Hem, anu it is wise to en
gage in legitimate promotion effort
beyond the sphere of the local news
paper. It is well, however, to hold
in mind the fact that money can be
wasted in advertising us easily as
in anything else. Desired results

In all the contention between
Mr. Drake and the D. I. & P. peo
ple, and in the later quarrel within

public. The Slate Land Board was
supposed to look after the public
interest. Therefore the public is
plucked without mercy. The vari
ous private interests in the case will
