"Germany Is far from being down
and out." '
This was tlio statement made by
Father Luko Shechan of St. Francis
church. Just returned from a tour
months absence In Europe, of which
two weeks were spent In Germany
and the balance In Ireland, In
tho Teutonic republic ho found In
dustry progressing, and the great
mass of the people apparently In
fairly good circumstances.
The people are not well dressed,
but from all he could learn there Is
no real distress. Tho laboring man
Is better off than otct. The profos
slonal classes, and those with fixed
incomes are badly pinched,- however,

Irish Situation Unchanged
Speculators have become tired of
buying the mark, Father Shcohan
said, for Its continued tall has not
only tailed to return, them a profit,
but has represented a heavy loss as
As to the reparations situation,
tho sentiment is strongly against
payment, with a very evident incli
nation to let tho allies fix up their
own difficulties, he said.
The situation in Ireland is un
changed from that of two years ago,
it was gleaned from conversation
with Father Sheehan, who was ac
companied to uend by his nephew.
Father John O'Connor. Father
O'Connor is unwilling to make any
statement regarding the Irish politi
cal situation.
Says England Still Rules
England still rules Ireland, Father
Sheehan declared. Two years ago
this rule was through Dublin castle;
today it is through the Irish Free
state administration. Irish senti
ment today is represented by the re
publican party which, be believes,
will ultimately prevail. "The repri
sals which have been started by the
Free. State on helpless prisoners are
in themselves a confession of weak
ness," he said. "The Free State was
never sanctioned by the Irish govern
ment. The May election was to' ef
fect a coalition government, to end
civil war, and to bring into being a
new register of voters, unrevised
since 1918."
At present the situation Is bad In
Ireland, Father Sheehan said, ' The
provisional "government, which was
at the helm at the time he left on
his return voyage to America, was

Dement, chairman ot tho' railroad
committee, who presided.
Neutrality Is being observed by tho
club here only in the matter ot tho
Southern raclflc-Central Pacific un-
merger. Dement explained. The
committee feels, he said, that Bond
may be In position a Uttlo later to
secure recognition on some vital mat
ter, through refusing to tako sides
now. That no effect on Bond can
now be seen, no matter which way
the unmerger question is decided,
was the statement ot H. W. Sawyer.
It ono ot the roads should promise
to build a road from Bend to Odoll
to connect with the Natron cutoff,
which both have promised, Bond

however, should bo placed before the

ho said. Clark also callod attention
to tho lack ot stock scaloa In Bond,
declaring that If such scales were
provided, tho stock shtpmouts from
this city would bo greatly lncronsod.
II. S. Hamilton also, expressed his
opinion that a neutral atttudo Is
wrong. Tho program of tho Portland

It is striking evidence of the great
resilience ot this nation that, in spite
of the seriously adverse Influences
which persisted In 1922, the closing
months .of the. year disclosed a sttua-
wlth obvious danger to the balanced

The President's Declaration
President Harding lias recently de'
clnred that the nation Is "solvent

economic and financial factors can be

Forrester, class advisor.
The story of the play deals with
the return of Judas Iscarlot, who has

the Master, by encb.urlnglng the peo

Since, the beginning of 1922 tho

A well sustained volume of foreign

element In a satisfactory economic
situation In the United States, and
there is ample cause for apprehension

Tho SoliHer Honus
Tho financial outlook is excellent
and gives assurance of ability to sup
port any sound development of busi
ness that may be desired. Through
tho president's veto of tho soldlors'
bonus bill the nation has for a time
bolng escaped the enormous financial
burden which would have been Im
posed by that legislation, but tho ef
fort to secure a blanket distribution
of public funds to the soldiers of tho
lato war will undoubtedly continue
and, If successful, would constitute
a serious check to hope for reduction
ot taxation and amortization ot tho
national debt.
A similar menace to the. public
credit lies In the proposals to weaken
tho federal reserve board ,by appoint
ments for political or class purposes

ent situation In tho United States,
however, would seem definitely to
outweigh tho unfavorable ones, and
there Is reason to ontertaln a sane
optimism in regard to the prospect
of excellent business conditions for
tho first six months of 1923 at least,
and If tho possible difficulties to
which referonco has been made cap
bo successfully overcome, tho coming
year should place tho nation In a
stronger economic and financial po
sition than ovor before. Its situation
may . bo deemed favorablo Indeed,
when compared with that of most
great countries, in the world today,
wboro far heavier burdenB exist and
far moro harassing and critical
problems now confront their peoples.
