In a local newspaper n repre
sentative of the Timber workers'
junlon, writing ot the wngo scale
which tho union Is now demanding,
says:' "I would suggest that wo
arc asking only a part ot tho value,
not 'nil of tho value, of tho product
which wo produce. It would not
bo practical at this time to entorco
tho demand Buch as suggested nbovo
hut wo do ask for n living wage."
No one can object to a request
for a living wage whero ono Is not
being paid. Tho ordinary diffi
culty, and tho difficulty which wo
assumo exists In tho present mat
ter, Is tho definition ot tho term
"living wage." That, however, Is
a small matter compared with tho
implication that ultimately n de
mand Is to bo nindo for all ot the
value of tho product produced. Tho
question of a living wage is ono of
immediate interest and importance;
any plan to demand "all tho valuo
of tho product" goes beyond and
deeper into tho very foundations
ot our American life. It is Bolshe
vism, puro and simple, and we aro
entitled to know if tho words repre
sent tho serious and well considered
Ideas of the writer and thoso for
whom ho acts.
Tho prcamblo of tho Timber
workers' constitution, quoted by tho
writer, states that the organization
exists "In order to securo to our
selves and tho futuro generations
a Just and.equltablo portion ot the
wealth which wo produce." That
is American. It calls for a just
and equitable division.- It is In
keeping with the Ideas of tho new
era of Industrial relationships. And
it does not suggest that nt any time
"all of tho value of the product"
Is tqjjo demanded.
Tho American Federation of La
bor does not stand for any such
program. Wo doubt If , any Bend
union affiliated with the American
Federation has any such leanings.
They aro not Bolshovlk; "they aro
American. And we bcllovo they
are not waiting for tho practical
time to enforce any demand for
"all tho value of tho product" they
cause ho timber ot tho south is
becoming exhausted and tho com
pany to looking for a Biipply for
tho future.
Statistics havo recently boon
printed showing hat tho plno milts
ot tho south will havo finished
tliolV cut In n f,ow yonrs, Operatorn
who aro getting through thoro aro
in tho same position as tho Wis
consin nnd Minnesota lumbermen,
who turned tholr oyos to Orogon
and Washington ns thoy wiw tholr
tlmbor going. They nro all look
tug to tho northwost now.
With tho greatost body ot stand
ing tlmbsr In tho country, 'the
northwest in a tow years will be
furnishing tho lumbar ot tho whole
country. .
Slowly but suroly Central 'Oregon
Is" coming into its own as a country
of tremendous attraction to tourists
and sportsmon. Casual visitors havo
been passing on tho word for some
time; now, apparently, wo are to
havo some publicity from a man
who, 'knowing many other part3 of
tho "country, finds that hero there
aro things which mako us stand out
ahead of the rest;
All this is flno. Wo aro all of us
glad to havo tho country better
known. It means moro buslnoas
nnd moro dovehbpment. Wo have
an opportunity to sec now people
and to brush up against the outside
world in tho persons of our visitors.
It, is good in many ways.
Tho Oregon Votor has finally
taken nnttco ot tho Injustice It
did G. H. linker when It discussed
tho results of tho special election
ot last June, nnd in Its latest Issue
offers n rather wobbly apology. Tho
Voter is unablo to coma up man
fashion nnd say It was wrong, ns
will bo scon by reading tho nrtlclo
which Is headed "Wo Apologize and
Suggest," nnd having tailed to in
dict Mr. Baker lu his homo county,
now makes now charges ot Injuries
dono elsewhere.
Says tho Voter:
"It seems that tho Bend Commer
cial club passed resolutions con
demning tho Oregon Voter for hav
ing said "that In splto ot the
knocking of tho reconstruction
bonding bill by Bond's member ot
tho Land Settlement commission,
Deschutes led Eastern Oregon lu
behalf ot that measure, nnd guvo
ono ot tho highest percentages In
tho stntc, which suggests that Bond
hasn't much uso for n knocker."
Tho resolutions were not committed
to writing, It seems, nnd Tho Votor
has not recoived n copy ot them.
Discovering n hint in Tho Bend
Bulletin that Tho Votor wns expect
ed to apologize for something, The
Votor made Inquiry ns to what
was up.
"From II. J. Overturf, manager
of tho Bend Commercial club, we
received tho information, which in
dicates that we did Mr. Q. II. Baker
an Injustice. Baker Is Bond's mora
ber of tho land settlement commis
sion. Shortly after tho commission
was nppointed, Mr. Bakor was wide
ly quoted throughout tho press ot
the stato in an interview condemn
ing the supposed policy of tho com
mission - to which -ho was named.
According to Mr. Overturf:
" 'Tho Bend Commercial club con
ferred with Mr. Baker In tho mnt
ter of tho proposed administration
ot the bill and felt that his position
was sound. They therefore ex
pressed confldonco In his attltudo
ot Insisting that tho bill bo applied
without camouflage, a bill for th
roturnsd soldier, sailor and ma
rine. He reported to the club that
tho rest .of tho commission did nod
stand tor the tulmlnltt ration of the
bill for ths benefit of theM people.
He might have bean hasty, but ha
wa3 rigrft, we thousht. As ovldsasa
ot his good fHith, lie got out and
worked for the paasar.e ot tho bill
as It was referred to the people and
there Is no question by thai his
attitude was largely responsible for
the favorable vote on the hill in
this county. I felt that the mis
statement of the, facts by The Votor
impalrod the usefulness of Mr.
Bakor on the commission, and at
my suggestion tho Bend Commer-

- Tho announcement, in the Klam

company, of Kansas City, has pur
chased 70,000 'acres ot timber land
In northern California Is ot especial
Interest t,o thoso who aro watching
tho tlmbor development ot tho
northwest. v
.Originally, wo believe, tho Lorig
Boll qdnlpany had Its chief tlmbor

. The reason for this 1s not that

, 'th a.'cOi
Ji any''thhktf that itWwoUr
i'ern timber is more desirable tlWij
other like reason. It Is simply bo-
"The Votor is glad to learn that
Mr. Buker worked In good faith in
nls home county for the bill which
he did so much to discredit through
out tho state and Is glad to give
him credit for his spirit In so do
ing. The-Voter, also apologizes for
having dono Mr. Bakor tho injustice
of assuming that ho had injured
the bill in his homo county merely
because ho previously had Injurod
It throughout the stute. May The
Voter nlso suggest that if Mr. Baker
has not entirely corrected tho In
justlco ho did to his follow mem
bers ot tho land settlement commis
sion by hla representations as out
lined by Mr. Ovorturf, that in fair
ness to those membora ho endeavor
to seo that thoy are placed in tho
right light before tho Bond Com
mercial club and tho readers of
Tho Bom1 Bulletin? Wo havo no
doubt that tho samo spirit ot fair
ness that prompted Mr. Bakor to
work for tho hill ho previously In
jured and helped defeat will Impel
him to set his fellow commissioners
right before his local constituency.
The injustice ho did them reflected
upon tholr patriotism and honesty,
Which was a far moro serious re
flection than that incorrectly made
upon Mr. Bakor by Tho Voter,"
' Jfi other words, the Votor, havr
1ng found Itsolf 'wrong, tries to find
something else- to complain about,
A poor sport, wo say.
Apparently there's 110 tolling
whero this price business Is going
to stop, but It things koop on as
they nro going now it will nover
stop. In tho news today Is nn Horn
reporting that railroad men nro
seeking "very substantial increases"
In wages. If thoy nro grunted, tho
railroads will then require "vory
substantial Increases" In freight
rates In order to meet the higher
wages. "Very substantial Incrosseu"
In freight rates will cause "vory
substantial Increases" In the cost
ot things morod by freight and that
In turn will mean "very substantial
Increases" in the cotU of living.
Then "vory substantial Increases"
In wages will bo sought again to
meet tho higher cost of living, nnd
the whole clrclo will bo gone around
Some time tho clrclo must break
nt the point wbsro someono Is get
ting too high a prollt. W15 do not
pretend to know whero that point
Ib, but we trust that the break may
como quickly.
