was sold last week for 17 cents
per pound to bo delivered on
April 15. This Band wool, henco
is not an index to the price that
may bo expected for wools of
better grades. This same class
of wool sold for from 10 to 12
cents last year which represents
a very gratifying increase.
Tho wool industry has boon
given some little impetus in tho
county by tho fact that tho now
woolen mills hero aro now nn as
sured fact. Plans havo already
been completed for tho building'
and construction work will begin
at once. It is expected that they
will bo in operation by Juno 1.
They will bo among tho vary best
mills of tho Northwest and will
be managed by thoroughly corn
competent men, " muj supported
by both local and outside capital.
Tho old casea will all bo clerin

thoy can bo looked into. TIiIb
menus that thousands of ontries
now held up will bo settled at

honest ontrymon to oxpodito tho
obtaining of land. But a goodly
portion of tho money will bo used
to provont fraud.
If you want a town where peo
ple can come who are disposed to

with and bury deep from sight all
jealousy and spite, move for one
common good and general pros
perity which will bring mutual
good to everyone. Do not work
with fear and trembling that the
other fellow might make a pence
or two more than you get out of
it, but take for granted that
worth will tell and you will get
your share if you deserve it
We wonder how many of our
boys realize that land is going
fast boys brought up to think
that in America land can never
be scarce, that when they havo
played out at everything else
they can go somewhere, get n
piece of land for nothing, and
the next day turn out to be a
prosperous farmer, can with dif
ficulty be made to see that it is
slipping from their grasp. Keen
scented corporations snufFing the
inevitable battle from afar are
turning their attention to land,
and greedily buying what is left
in whole counties with no idea
of letting an acre go for nothing,
but the boy who thinks that he
is made for something higher
looks calmly on thinking there
will be plenty left for him should
ho ever have to stoop to it.
OUTLOOK GOOD FOR WOOL.
A special dispatch from Pend
leton to the Journal says; Ac
cording to statements from Dan
P. Smythe, secretary of the State
Wool Grower's association and
other prominent sheep men of
this section, the prospects for
this year's wool crop in Umatilla
county aro uncommonly good.
Because of several conditions it
is expected that tho prico of
wool, when the sales begin this
year, will be from 5 to 10 cents
higher than last year. Firstr
the wool this year is of much bet
ter quality than it was last year.
The winter, though fairly cold,
was remarkably even in temper
ature which resulted in the sheep
feeding well and coming through
in exceptionally good condition.
Then the spring has been almost
free from wind and dust storms;
hence the wool is very clean.
The larger number of tho flocks
having been well cared for dur
ing tho winter, tho color will be
good and the staple long. Also
it is expected that tho clip will
be heavier per fleece this year
It is probable that the salo
dates will bo closely observed in
tho marketing of tho spring clips
since tho sheep men have found
that n better prico is secured by
concerted action on their part.
Tho first of theso dates will pro
bably bo some time in May, de
finite announcement of sales
schedules to be made as soon as
all of tho various sections of
Eastern Oregon havo agreed up
on tho comparative date that will
best suit their local interests.
That prices of wool will bo
much higher this year than last
is indicated by the few sales that
havo already been reported for
Umatilla county this spring,
sqtJl; jfrHfr;hn-B,tmi ;;) FdllO
(By Samuel M. Evnns, mombor
of tho United Stntes stall' at
Washington in tho Portland Jour
nnl.) The conservation of tho natu
ral resources of tho country in a
perfectly "safe, sane and conser
vative" way, without impeding
in any way tho development of
tho resources of the great west
and without hysteria in ono di
rection or another, is to bo tho
policy of the interior department
under President Tnft and Secre
tary of tho Interior Ballinger.
The big chango in the land
office is that there will be no
"policy." Secretary Ballinger
will not admit that a policy is
IIo is going to en
force tho law. Of course, he's
going to entorco it dutorcntly
from the way in which it was en
forced under lloosovolt, and here
comes the change.
But the change will not be ac
complished at one foil swoop. It
will be slow and well considired
and each problem will bo worked
out on its own merits. Tho offi
cials of the land office are of the
opinion that during tho past sev
en years there has been too much
of tho "whoop 'or up boys" busi
ness in the conduct of tho goner
al landoflico and the soft petal is
on, and on to stay.
During tho seven years that
Roosevelt occupied tho White
House tract after tract of public
land was withdrawn from entry.
It is said that n man could ride
from the Missouri river to the
Pacific ocean nnd his horse need
not once stop a hoof outside
government Innd that has been
withdrawn temporarily from
entry. This does not include
withdrawals of 150,000,000 acres
made for forest reserves. Na
tional forests are not considered
In most cases no reason was
given for the withdrawal of the
public lands. During tho last
year of his administration, how
ever, the reason became apparent.
The land was to bo "conserved."
As it now stands, in tho slatos
and territories of the union, ex
cepting Texas and Hawaii, where
public lands arc understate con
trol their treaties of annexation,
there is now a total of but 751,-
895,29G acres of public land not
appropriated end 308,021,509
acres of this is in Alnska. No
figures arc available to describe
the character of this land but
more than half of it is mountain
ous, desert, sagebrush or ice
fields. The most of it that does
not fall under ono of these classi
fications is "conserved."
Secretary Ballenger thinks
conservation means tho preven
tion of waste, and not the pre
vention of development.
Secretary Ballenger will not
talk about "policies." Ho takes
the position that it is impossible
for an executive officer to map
out a policy, and then follow it
rigidly in every case that cornea
Each case will bo given consid
eration of itself. Thero will bo
no relaxation in tho prevention
of frauds. It will bo as hard for
a dishonest ontryrnan to acquire
public lands ns it over was in tho
most strenuous days of Roosevelt,
but tho idea will always bo in
mind that tho land is for use.
But, as is very apt to happen
in a time of swooping investiga
tions, many of the cases aro not
good. In Bomo of tho cases that
havo been brought to trial thero
was not enough to support tho
government's contention. The
old condition, where a suit
brought by tho government was
as good as won tho minute tho
papers were filed, no longer ex
ists. Theso cases wero brought
on evidence gathered in some
cases by secret servicu men inex
perienced in land laws. Tho
secret sorvico men wero Drought
in after Secretary Garfield had
cleaned out tho dishonest land
inspectors, and beforo tho very
efiliclcnt land forco now in oper-
