THE OFFICIAL PAPER OF GILLIAM
A WORTHY LA W.
House bill No 206, introduced by
Mr. Gowan to encourage irrigation,
has passed. This is a step in the
right 1 direction and does not put
the state to much expense, consid
ering the vast benefit derived there
from." ; ". '.' :'
Oregon has an immense area that
could be irrigated, with a conse
quent increase of wealth and popu
lation. Under its provisions the
sum of $1500 is appropriated out
of the general fund to each county
of the state of Oregon containing
arid lands, for the purpose of sink
ing one experimental artesian well
therein. Any county in the state
which contains at least one town
ship of arid lands in compact form
in accordance with the United
States survey thereof, and which
said lands were at the time of said
survey, or at any time thereafter,
subject to entry as desert land, act
of March 3, 1887, shall be allowed
the sum of $1500, as hereinbefore
The county courts of the several
counties, coming within the provis
ions of this act shall, upon a peti
tion signed by at least 100 legal vo
ters, and filed in said court, locate
a site for such well where, in their
judgment the experiment can be
most effectually and economically
made, within their county; and
shall let by contract, receiving bids
after 30 days' public notice in the
official paper of said county, to the
lowest responsible bidder, for sink
ing such artesian wells.
Pension reform is a growing need
of the times. All men as well as
newspapers, regardless of party
connections, worthy of their good
names, are declaring in favor of it.
It is estimated that in 1894 the
money needed to pay pensions will
amount to $200,000,000 more than
all the other expenses of the govern
ment put together and this thirty
years after the war. In the name
of patriotism and ' citizenship, is
such a robbery to be allowed? The
pension expenditure is found to ex
ceed the entire salary list of the
government, the presidential offices,
the diplomatic services, the army,
the navy, the Indians, the census,
fortifications, armaments of forts
and ships, the cost of the postal
service above receipts, . the depart
ments of agriculture and labor, the
United States courts, rivers and har
bors, and the public printing. The
Portland Oregonian in speaking in
this connection says: . This expen
diture certainly exceeds all esti
mates of what is just in the payment
of pensions, and trenches largely
upon the domain of extreme liberal
ity toward a special class of citizens,
a large majority of whom are able
bodied and many of whom are

idle waste of money, but Repre

JUDGE GHESfAAfS OPIN
: IOAr. '
In an interview upon political
subjects, Judge Walter Q. Gresham,
of Chicago, one of the greatest and
most brilliant men of the nation,
has declared himself a democrat on
tariff and economic positions only.
"I consider the tariff as the only
great question dividing the two par
ties. If the democrats when they
take charge, will carry out their
pledges sincerely and consisently,
and knock out the protection fraud
I will stay with them, and so will
hundreds of thousands of indepen
dents who voted for Cleveland in
Nov. But should the democrats
fail to keep their pledges not one
of these men will be found voting
the democratic ticket in 1896. I
j feel pretty good, though, about the
future, for the fact that Carlisle is
going to take the treasury is a
guaranty that the new tariff bill
will give tariff-reformers satisfac
tion. It is gratifying to know that
we have a man like Carlisle to help
Cleveland through the great tariff
fight which will soon be upon us.
Carlisle is a great man and knows
all about the tariff and can make
no mistakes. I predict for him a
sucessful career in the treasury,
and also in two years I expect to
see the finances of the country so
plain and so simple that a boy can
write a statement of the treasury
and understand it. As it stands now
the more statements we read of the
condition of the treasury the less
we know. But Carlisle can be
trusted, and he will succeed in
bringing order out of chaos, and if
he does he is my candidate for pres
ident in 1896, and there is not a
man in the country who can beat
him for the nomination and elec
An exchange remarks that the
people who need more religion are:
The man who lets his horse stand
all day in the rain without a blank
et; the man who growls like a bear
with a sore tail when his wife asks
him for money; the woman "who
whispers it around that some other
woman is not what she ought to be;
the preacher who is always looking
for an easier place at a higher sal
ary; the man who walks the streets
with his hands in his pockets
while his wife carries the baby; the
man whose neighbors have an idea
he is a Christian; the, preacher
whose sermons never help anybody,
and the man who kesps a dog ar.d
says he can't afford to take his
The Newberg Graphic says: "The
honest taxpayers of Oregon have a
number of good reasons for oppos
ing the appropriation for the mili
tia. It is a useless burden and the
state haB no earthly use for it; and
what makes it a double burden is
that it is becoming a rapidly-grow
ing evil in politics, as was plainly
noticeable at the last June election.
It will be seen that those most in
terested in maintaining the militia j
are simply "machine and ring pol
iticians" who desire to maintain a
political organization at the state's
expense. The honest taxpayer too
well knows what a curse ring pol
itics" is, and it is hoped, should it
pass the senate, that Governor Peh-
There are a great many classes
of people who do a town no good,
and they might.be euumerated as
follows: First, those who go to some
other town to do their trading;
second, those opposing improve
ment and public expenditure; third, '
those who prefer a quiet town ' to
one of push and business; fourth,
those who imagine they own the
town and can run everything as
they please; fifth, those who think
business can be done slyly, without
advertising; sixth, those ' wjh'o de
ride public-spirited men; seventh,
those who oppose every movement
that does not promise to benefit
them personally; eighth, those who
seek to injure the good name and
credit of their fellow citizens. Ex.

a favorable move to cut down
brother officials' salaries, but the
move cutting down the salaries of
county officials stands a fair show
of becoming a law. The large sal

a thing of the past. The matter
does not figure 60 much in the sher
