TERUHItONEH CSOOD VOUI.
Tho Redmond Spokesman of July
18, dovotes a halt page of Its paper
In taking to task an article booming
Bond? Oregon, our Industrious neigh
bor 22 miles to tho south. The
position the Spokesman takes Is in a
manner Justifiable as the article In
question Is manifestly an overstate
ment ot the facts, and It Is entirely
unnecessary to enlarge upon actual
conditions In advertising the greater
portion ot Central Oregon. Yet, as
far as the Kedtnod publication Is
concerned, reading between the lines.
It Is a case of "sour grapes". Bend
IS forglug ahead. Is doing more
building than any other town In Cen
tral Oregon, has a bunch ot united
boosters that one is compelled to
take his hat off to, even though he Is
convinced In his own mind that they
are exceeding the speed limit. Tho
people of Bend are doubttesH consci
entious In the belief that the adver
tising matter they put out can be
verified nnd If ohers do not agree It
Is morely a difference In tho point of
vlow. It Is a very poor plan for any t
town to KnocK ner sister, mere is
no benefit derived aud It usually acts I
as a boomerang and rebounds to the '
aiscrcuii oi me viewer oi me
hammer. Tho lietter policy to pcr
sue would Ik for the various towns
of Central Oregon to unl(e ou a con,
slstant plan of civic and rural de
velopment, confining their energy to
truthful representations. This plan
systematically followed up will do
more towards the development of
each locality than a carload of stv
called wild-cat advertising with Its
resultant criticism. There Is an old
adage which says that "those who
live In glass houses should not
throw stones." Boost, don't knock!
The Bulletin appreciates the sound
remarks of the Terrebonne paper,
and, as before stated, entirely agrees
that so-called "wildcat advertising"
Is to be discouraged heartily. It
only adds here, as it before stated,
that the advertising objected to In
no wise emanatefl from the people of
Bend, and that all advertising that
has its responsible authorship here
can pass rigid Inspection on Its own
merits. The Bulletin will continue
to stick to tho truth about Bend, and
The Bulletin will continue its polloy
of saying nothing about Its neigh
bors unless that something Is good,
or, at worst, kindly criticism for the
COUNTRY JOl'K.VA LIKM.
A study of Oregon weekly papers
from 1901 to the present tlmo has
been.made by a University of Oregon
Btudeut. and an article written which
Is of Interest both to the mombors of
the newspaper profession and to the
Miss Edna C. MoKnlght or Albany
Is tho writer, who devoted much
time to the study. She eaya that the I
country weekly In Oregon has devel
oped during the past decade Into a
Itowerful organ for Improving farm
life. We quote from tho article:
"There is an awakened Interest In
the oouutry weekly newspaper which
U an outgrowth of a now attitude
which we are beginning to have to
ward the problems of country life.
Within the list few yearn there lus
been a growing realization as to the
Importance of developing and main
taining a high level of rural living.
"The value of the country editor's
bervlce was first brought to tho atten
tion of the American public by the re
port of tne commission on country
life, which mentioned him as being
ope of the possible regenerative
agencies of rural life. Today, there
are distinct signs of an Interest in ru
ral Journalism which promises good
results. . .
f"The fact that the countrjHejibl
ejrlbers constitutes from GO tb-Tff'per
cent of the subscription list," suggests
the 'question: Do the Interests of,
this CO or 75 par cent receive as.care-
ful consideration as do the remain-
lug 25 per cent of town subscribers?
Examination of tho newspapers ot
Oregon during tho flrst part ot tho
last dcesdo reveals tho printing ot
but tittle noWH to warrant support
(rum tho farmer, tleyond occasional
mention of his visit to town, and now
and then n write-up of somo local en
terprise, the papers had little ot Itn-
mediate personal Interest to tho
farm. With the material oxplolta-
Hon of tho state, however, the news
paper necessarily began to pay more
attention to Us outside constituents.
"Among tho many hopeful signs ot
advance Is tho effort to have an effic
ient local correspondence service. An
Interesting fact of note In this con
nection Is the recent action of Tho
Rend Bulletin In offering to pay $1
per column to country correspon
dents. This publication establishes
n precedent In this respect. The sig
nificant result of such a policy Is tho
placing of rural Interest on n more
nearly equal footing with tho Inter
ests of the town. Other points In

Democracy la In' about as muddled a

lacks definite shape and form; It, as
a party, smacks unhealthily ot the

reason tfiat Tho Bulletin and thous

Is because It believes In Wilson
not In the Democratic party plus Its
unsavory adjuncts and because it
does not beltevo In Taft and the un

The nomination of Woodrow Wil

for many years. Under tho party
syctcm. "the swing of the pendulum"
Inexorably decrees that parties shall
bate their periods of supremacy In
government and also their periods of
decline In the favor nnd confidence of
the people. There Is every Indica
tion that tho modern period of re
puSd'cn rule, which has lasted with
no very serious Interruptions since
1860, Is virtually ended.
It Is of vital Importance that
whether this party or that party
mles us, the party of government

Its best. And that Is why tho nomi
nation of Gov. Wilson deserves tho
full-throated applause of a nation.
Abraham Lincoln plead that a
"government of the people, for tho
people and by tho people" be not
allowed to perish. Theodore Roose
velt pleads that a "party ot Roose

be permitted to place Roosevelt at
the head of that government. Yes,

A sad tragedy culminated Sunday
when Mrs. J. Roy Ilnrvoy, wife of
the web known chief ot the local
government forestry olllre, was re
moved to Salem, suffering from a
severo attack ot diabolic mnuln,
Kidney trouble wns one of tho con
tributing causes that resulted In the
