The Standard Oil Bulletin says it
would be a wonderful thing if the
Pacific Coast would set an example 10
the rest of the nation by clearing up
its highways not only of signs which
are located in the wrong places, but
also of unsightly "hotdog" stand;
onH rnAflsidn establishments of yar
ious kinds. No one argues that out
door advertising is wrong it is only
when the signs are wrongly placed
that there is objection. And no one
argues that roadside eating places
ahnnld be abolished, only that many
of them are unsightly and unattrac
tive. If the proprietors of sucn as
these would only study the question,
they would find that there is move
prosperity in an artistic and beauti
ful establishment than in an ugly
The road-siern and "hot-dog" prob
lem is one that is vexing the whole
country. Perhaps the moment is at
hand when the public of the Pacific
Coast so proud of its scenic won
ders and with so much to be proud
about will solve it.
New York members of the federal
reserve bank have been cautioned by
the federal reserve board to the ef
fect that use of federal credit for
speculation, directly or indirectly,
must be restrained. Following the
board's announcement, after it found
that time loans to brokers and deal
ers by New York banks had increas
ed from $3,816,000,000 to $5,559,000,
000, the Bank of England boosted ex
change from 4 to 5V2 and stocks
began to tumble earthward so fast
that the gamblers could not keep up
with the tape, and went home with
well developed cases of influenza and
what not. The federal reserve board
found that the growing volume of
speculation, backed by federal re
serve bank members of New York,
had strained credit conditions, caus
ing an advance of 1 to Vk per cent
in the cost of commercial credit.
North Pacific terminal cities are
demanding faster train service to and
from the-East. They take the at
titude that the Northern roads
should meet transportation facilities
now given California, and logically
draw attention to palpable discrimi
nation existing in favor of the
Southern state over the Northwest
terminal states. Railroad presidents
defend their present schedules by cit
ing the fact that the fast California
train is an all-Pullman extra fare
train, and that like trains on North
ern roads would not pay.
Walla Walla valley orchardists and
farmers have invited the Oregon
State Game commission to come and
get a band of Oregon elk," that deep
snow in the Blue Mountains has
driven from their winter range, to
the very city limits of Walla Walla.
The elk are browsing orchard trees
and wandering around haystacks
that have been kept in reserve for
stock, and no doubt would consider
garden city violets a delicacy, should
hot-house attendants for a moment
leave their posts of duty.
Teeth would be put in the Kel
logg pact if Senator Capper's pro
posed resolution should pass. The
resolution would stipulate that when
tho president of the United States de
termines, and by proclamation de
clares, that any nation has violated
the Kellogg pact it shall be unlawful
"to export to such country, arms,
munitions, implements of war or
other articles for use in war until
the president shall by proclamation
declare that such violation no longer
the institution has done in the past.
Over a period of ten years past, this
medical school has been recipient of
$1,225,000 in donations, which have
equaled the sum appropriated by the
state during that time. '
Mike Brotherton and bride have
started something by having ' their
marriage ceremony performed in
public. . A San Francisco theatre was
packed the other evening after it
had been advertised that two of the
players would be married on the
stage after the performance. How
ever, be it remembered that Walla
Walla started the fad.
the "change" in the moon had some
thing to do with it.

A New York wife in bringing suit
for divorce, alleges in her complaint
that her husband used her neck for
an ash tray. He had a habit of
placing the live end of his cigaret on
her neck, then he would twist it
around, laughing when she scream
cd with pain. Another instance of
"reaching for a Lucky" instead of
a sweet.

The necessity of open river trans
portation on the Columbia, from
Lewiston to the Pacific ocean, was
stressed by the Columbia Basin
Wheat conference at Arlington; also
that river navigation cannot be pro
vided and maintained without pat
ronage and patronage will not come
unless the service provided is modem
and efficient. All of which involves
the completion of the Umatilla
Rapids project.
It is no uncommon thing for on
to be in the midst of certain activi
ties and, because of divergent inter
ests, bo only vaguely aware of what
is taking place and wholly ignorant
of its significance. Today a fleet of

interest than a single aircraft com
