SPRINGFIELD, OREGON, MONDAY, AUGUST 23, 1DU.
PRESS ON THE
The Oregon Voter of last week reprints a long paragraph
from The News regarding the railroad land grant, together
with comments on the same subject from other papers. Some
of the significant viewpoints this reproduced are as follows:
"Stop all further proceedings, charges expenses to profit
and loss, and let the railroads have a chance to commence
disposing of the lands. This agitation has been the biggest
piece of foolishness ever perpetrated by and uppn the people
of Oregon. The Lord only knows how much havoc the whole
affair will do in a financial way before it is finally gotten to
where development will again commence." Myrtle Point
"If the government is going to keep faith with the railroad
company to the extent of guaranteeing its equity of $2.50 an
acre, it should also keep faith with the public, by. returning
to it the value over that figure. It will not be doing it if the
railroad company is allowed to take the valuable timber from
the land and yet lay claim to the ?2.50 an acre." Grants
Placing the lands in a foreist reserve would tie them up
indefinitely under the management of some Washington fa
vorite in want of a job. Every foot of public land in the state
should belong to the state." Condon Times.
"It is a cold day in Oregon when the politicians and law
yers can't start a new land agitation or lawsuit that holds
pp large tracts from settlement and gets them votes and big
fees from the state and federal courts." Santiam News.
"Land should be classified agricultural and grazing land
sold to settlers on easy terms. Timber lands within national
forest should be" deeded to government. State of Oregon
should acquire and hold timber lands outside the national for
ests, and sell the timber separate from the land where the
characted of land will permit of agricultural development.
Scattered land could be exchanged for a compact body, to
build up a state forest system." The Tiniberman.
BRIGHTENING TRADE CONDITIONS
Let not the voice of the pessimist be the only sound in the
land. The man with the optimistic view has his chance; there
is demand and opportunity for him, and as a matter of fact he
is entitled to speak his mind.
For example, there is the case of the Portland merchant,
well known, who recently returned from a business tour of the
Eastern states. In New York he found no note of pessimism
whatever. Back there they were hardly ready to credit the
asesrtion that business is dull anywhere. And we will get the
full significance of that state of mind when we stop to think
that New York is the business nerve center of the country.
But it is not by the fanvay look and the distant report
that optimism is to be wholly satisfied. Here within our own
city there are many evidences of brightening trade conditions.
Go. about among the leading retail merchants and some of
them, reporting the business of the current month, will tell
that is the largest August business thus far they have done
for years. Moreover, it is said by some of these dealers that
the better class of goods are selling very much more generally
than they were during the month of August of last year. There
is no hint of the deadly dumps in their testimony, and the tes
timony itself is reliable. :
We do not suggest that merely by thinking so, trade con
ditions will immediately develop to beer and skittles, but we do
believe that it is best the brightening side of trade should have
due advertisement. We never get anywhere by wrapping our
selves in gloom. It is the sunshine that is essential to growth;
and the analogy by which we make application of this fact to
our business attitude is entirely sound.
There are brightening trade conditions and prospects and
the way to help them brighten is to recognize them and main
tain the attitude of optimism rather than depression Telegram.
THE "GO -
(From the Eugene Register.)
Springfield not long ago boasted an organization of com
munity boosters known as the 'Go-Getters' and although this
organization has not been active recently it is evident that the
spirit that animated it still lives in the city across the river.

establishment of a municipal camp ground for the accommo

Valley, anl it was decided to go ahead with the project. A sight

It has often been said that the best way to do a thing Is to

Portland, Aug. 23. A strain
of cynical optimism pervades the
current trade letter of the Wells

San Francisco, which sees an
era of continued and expanding
prospertiy as a result of Euro- exchanges are moving contlnu

the bountiful crops that now are

being harvested in America.
"There has been a definite
growth of optimistic sentiment
within the past month," says the
letter, "and the whole country is
feeling more cheerful than it did
concerning the crop outlook,
general trade conditions and the
relations of the United States
toward the rest of the world.
"The improvement in the steel
industry has been quite remark- for the benefit of shareholders,
