THE COLUMniA SOUTHERN.
,.Tho bombnholl that burst In the
midst of tho plans for the completion
of the old Columbia Southern project
was, jve suspect, chiefly loaded with
gas. At least, we. together with
every Oregonlan who desires a square
deal for tho Laldlaw settlers and n
speedy development of tho state as
n whole, sincerely hope so. Put
vaporous as were tho bomb's contents
it is n poisonous gas so charged
with secret spite and pettiness that
Its stench Is disgusting.
Mr. McMahon's contentions that
the utilisation of tho funds, placed
at the disposal of the project by tho
legislature, is purely for a looal
benefit, seem Ulfouuded. How bet
ter could a stato spend money If
tho cash actually were being Invested
permaueutly, which It Is not than
In aiding tho development ofa great
project that must bring prosperity to
a considerable body of Its citizens?
How better than In finally erasing
tho blot of shame that has so long
darkened this special phaso of Ore
gon's irrigation history? How hot
ter thuu by finally acknowledging
Oregon's responsibility to Its settlers,
and undoing tho Injustice that has
been done them? And, esieclHlly,
how better can money, thought and
time be expended, than in success
fully adopting a course of broad, far
Blghtttd develop:unt that must moan
a revolution In reclamation matters
in the Pacific Northwest, renew a
faltering confidence In Irrigation
enterprises and set an example that
will place Oregon In the front rank
of western states actually working
for tlNs good of their settlers, and of
fering those settlers real opiwrtuHl
ties? Even If these questions could be
answered, Is not the very backbone
of the MeMahon complaint hrokon at
one stroke by the bare statement of
the true fluanclal faots? His conten
tion, It appears to a layman, is
chiefly based on the assumption that
the state Is pndiiiK money for the
upeolal benefit of a special district.
Hut the facts of the matter are that
the stato is p;rinuneiitly spending no
money at all. Oregon la simply
lending the funds to the segregation;
every dollar advanced Is amply se
cured; every dollar draws Interest,
thus actually creating profit for the
state; every dollar will return to tho
treasury. How oould Oregon's funds
be better utilized?
.Mr. MeMahon may have the best
'Intentions In the world. There
actually may exist some reasonable
and honest excuse for this eleventh
hour attempt to hold up the Land
Board lu its effort to bring the long
and dlsgracoful Columbia Southern
history to a huppy conclusion. Put
If so, we aro unable to discern It.
And If all this fuss and feathers
is fathered by political ambition, If,
perhaps, the sudden ory for economy

At oinbaiasbing the Governor and
members of tho Land Hoard, let us

if such It be. prove a boomerang
fatal to the political aspirations and
public icbpiict of those responsible.

but why stop thore? Does not his
literary work wnrrnnt greater recog
nition? Put that brings upon n
painful commentary. Last week
thnt cxcollcnt letter written by Mr.
Springer nnd sent to most of tho
papers In tho county, was published
by hut three ofthein; Buroly thnt
shows n distressing Inck of editorial
appreciation. And tho most humor

Most roofing guarantees arc a joke.
Experience teaches the longer a roofing is
guaranteed to last, the poorer it is.
Manufacturers inexperienced in making roofings
without knowledge as to their
dependability without responsibility as to their
own financial standing, will very often
guarantee their roofing for any number of years
simply to get the order.
The roofing generally fails and so docs the
firm that makes it and they never live
to make good their guarantee.
Malthoid Roofing is made to make good and
while its manufacturers guarantee it,
their guarantee is unnecessary because the roofing
in itself is sufficient to do all
that is claimed for it.
For twenty-six years, the makers of
Malthoid Roofing have made and guaranteed
their roofing and not one single purchaser can
ever say that this Company
has failed to make good a guarantee.
You can depend upon the responsibility
of the makers of Malthoid Roofing.
and you will never have to bother about guarantees
if you use Malthoid Roofing.
