WBJINHSDAY. JUNE 2R, 1913.
THE NEW ORDER.
Hero is a little story. It has n
moral. Also, It is true.
The other day C. S. Hudson of tho
First National Rank was told that
hogs In tho Powell Rutto country
werb suffering front some unknown
disease. The matter seemed critical;
the porkers were dying, and their
owners dU not know what to do. So
Mr. Hudson sent the following ..toHh
gram to Uu Orogon-Waahlngtfon
Railroad & Navigation Co. In Port
land: "Farmers In Powoll Rutte ills
trict, which Is largely devoted to
hog raising, have disease among hogs.
Must have assistance quick. Desire.
advleo of Farmer Smith. Can you
sond him to Rend at once? Will fur
nish transportation and pay his ex
penses if you desire."
Promptly canio back word from
tho O.-W. company that Farmer
Smith would be here at once and thnt
the railroad Is delighted to send him
on just such missions. And wo have
not tho slightest doubt that he will
know exactly what to prescribe after
he has felt the pulses of tho patients,
taken their temperatures and looked
at their tongues; for thoscwho know
him know that Farmer Smith comes
pretty near knowing his business.
which Is farming with scientific meth
ods but without frills.
Well here comes the moral.
Do you recall the shocking talcs we
used to read and hear, not so long
ago, about cold-blooded corporations
such as bloodsucking banks and
heartless railroads beating the poor
unprotected farmer to a financial
pulp? Why, half of tho real lurid
"mellerdramers" of a decade ago had
some such affair for their plot! Re
member the railroads, nine of whose
commandments were "The public be
damned" and the tenth "Get their
monoy?" And have you forgotten
about the mortgage foreclosures and
all the rest of It which seemingly
lined up banks on one side of a battjc
field and farmers on tho other?
And right here in our little story
of plain facts we stumble upon a
beautiful example of The New Order.
It Is a delightful Instance of the way
such things have changed, A bank
goes far out of Its way to lend' aid
to farmers and a railroad joins in the
good constructive work. That Is the
kind of banking and the kind of rail
roading that builds couiitrloa and
communities. Incidentally, It pays
dividends to the farmers, too.
to tho principle but to tho mothod
Wo nro sorry for Mr. McMnhan If
In his pursuit of light, nnd justtco ho
has Iwen badly treated, Rut wo fall
to sea a glimmer of logic or fairness
In venting his splto In the way ho
has attempted, Why should the de
velopment of tho ntiuo bo halted, nnd
why should deserving Bottlers bo In
jured, because n man entertains n
grudge ngntust those In power? It
Is well to snfegunrd tho Interests of
the pcopto nt large, but vicious ob
struction nnd striving for sane econ
omy nre vastly different things.
A few children actually msy know
what the Fourth of July stands for.
Some of them perhaps roallxo what
nil the celebration Is about. Rut It
Is fair to say that a great majority
have long sine1 ceased to remember
much concerning the day other than
thnt It Is an occasion for prodigal ex
penditure of powder nnd the creation
of all the deafening noise possible.
And Incidentally, the "glorious
fourth," celebrated along these lines,
hns ronped a horrlblo harvest of life
nnd limb, until n few yonrs ai;o tho
movement for n "sane fourth" gained
national headway. Fortunately that
wise reform hns come to Horn! too;
flrccrnckers nro notable for their
absence, and, ns a result, our child
ren have not suffcrel. Which Is as
It should be. And let us hope- that
for any who retain regrets for tho
old ordor of things tho famous "I.lfo"
cartoon, reproduced on this pago,
will hold a needed lesson.

LEST NAE FORGET
The letter of L. II. McMahan re
garding the Tuinalo project, printed
elsowheie In this paper, seems to
throw some light upon tho mental at
titude of the man who has stepped
In and, temporarily at least, blocked
the state In a big constructive work.
That Its author Is a crank Is a not
unnatural conclusion of one who
roads its record of graft-stalking-
just as It is apparent that he takes
supremo delight In enjoining what
ever he bumps up against,
Mr, McMahan may be sincere; ho
actually uiay be a reformer of merit.
Rut, Judging from a: communica
tion, his chief reason for attacking
the Tumalo appropriation Is because
ho is hostile to state officials and
takes thjB,chanai to "get even" for
past grhmnaiw" In siufakms of the
projeqt he sys 'l am not opposed
Jl'IKJK SAYS PAY IT (JIT.
To tho Editor of Tho Rulletln:
Tho following letter from Attornnv
General Crawford confirms the opin
ion of the county Judge, viz: that
tho JR5.000 Is available for imvnmnt
of tho county Indebtedness. Tho
i2,suo returned from tho cruising
fund is being us Id out. tun! th una
of tho $65,000 additional will put
mo county on n cash iwsis until fall.
i ne judge urges the treasurer to pay
Tho attorney general's letter:
"Salem. May 31, 19 U.
".Mr. G. Springer.
"County Judge of Crook County,
J "Yours of the I7th Instant relative
to the payment of about $68,000 of
county warrants received, and In re
ply bog to say that If thoro was a
special tax levied, or money raised
for the special purpose of pa)lng this
$55,000, I doubt whether that monoy
could be applied for any other pur
pose. If, however, tho tax lovy of
the general fund was high enough
to pay these as they beenmo due,
then 1 am of tho opinion that they
could use that money In paying any
warrants, and when the Injunction Is
dissolved, pay the $55,000 out of any
money In the treasury not othcrwlso
appropriated, and If you did not hive
the monoy at that tlmo then tho
warrants would draw Interest, ami a
tax would hnvo to he levied anil nn '
. .. . . .... (
amount hare to- bo put Into the next
county levy sufficient to pay the
warrants. In case the Injunction is
dissolved, I do not think the treas
urer would be personally liable on
the warrants, provided the money
had 1con used In the payment of
other warrants. If the monoy was
simply In tho general fund.
"Very slncorelv yours.
