Thursday, May 30,
For some time past there has been
very earnest consideration on the part
of. a number of our church-going
and church-supporting people of the
Imposition to federate the chuches of
Now this may not be considered a
subject altneether proper for cons'der
ation in thd secular press as these
matters are supposed to be settled
by the church peoule' themselves, vet
we have in mind all matters looking
to the betterment of condiions in this
community, and withal this is a sub
ject in which the editor of this paper
is personally interested.
In this little town of Heppner we
have at present no less than six strug
gling church organizations and at this
time bnt four of thorn are maintain
ing the services of a pastor. The
straggle that each is passine through
from a financial s'andpoint to do even
the little that is being dune, none but
those who are particularly interested
can testify to.
Within the past three years three
of these churches have enlarged their
houses of worship and today any one
of the three will amply house the
entire church-going community. But
two of them have pastors, and only,1
one of these giving his full time to
his church in this town. What's the
The difficulty lies in the fact that
there is too much division of interest.
Too much keeping apart over matters
of minor importance. Too much of
party spirit.. The thing to do is to
cut these out and let a number of the
churches come together in cne organ
ization and save this waste of money
The spirit of federation and co-operation
is in the air. It is striking
the hurches and the conditions that
exist in the smaller oomnnities will
We favor this move. Lot the
churches of Heppner unite, federate,
get together, and have a good, well
paid pastor; unite their forces for do
ing good aid conserve this waste of
money ana energy.
A mass meeting is baiug arranged
for the very near future to discuss
this question, pro and eon, with a
view to arriving at the proper con
clusion and if you have never thought
of what such a move would mean
to this community will yon kindly
give it consideration and be prepared
tc take nart in a proper discuss-ion of
the methods necessary to consummate
this most desirable event in the his
tory of Heppner.
The Nvomen of Washington are pre
paring to take an active part in the
forthcoming campaign. Already two
of them are avowed candidates for
different oiliocs. The latfst is Mrs.
Josephine Preston, who will run for
state superintendent of puhlio instruc
tion, on the Republican ti ket. Mrs.
Hreston is at present county superin
tendent in Walla Walla county where
she has made a good record. She
is organizing her campaign systemat
ically and promises to have the sup
port cf manv vell known educators.
Mrs. Timblin of Olvmpia, ia the
other woman candidate. She wants
to be state land commissioner. This
indicates that some women appreciate
the right of suffrage and intend to
avail themselves of its best opp rtu
nities. "Graduated Single Tax" is now
proposed by the singlo-taxers in Ore
gon. It is aimed at the land-grabbers
and the railroads, they assert. By
all means, mulct the railroads in
taxes and then demand lower freight
rates. Harpoon these corporate mon
sters a-goin' and a-comin'. By and
by, melbe, they will pull up their
bloomin' tracks and quit runiu' their
noisy cars and bother us no longer.
Everybody who builds a railroad ought
to go broke in his nefarious sohemes,
like Henry Villard snd G. W. Hunt.
Bv the war, we understand that Mr.
F?l, who suDp'ifs the "war chest"
fot the single taxers, made his for
tune out of soap. Society gives val
ne to soap as well as to land and on
railroads. Then why not propose a
graduated EingN tax on soap by way

Congress to olve Cut-Over
The proposition to build a new
schoolhouse for Hepuner is meeting
with favorable comment. The ptople
of this district realize that the pres
ent as well as the fu'uie needs demand
more adequate facilities ; this has been
understood for a long time but the
conditions financially and otherwise
have been against the move for a new
and up-to-date building. Ths time
has come, however, to tase definite
action and prepare for a new struc
ture. A vote of the district at this
time would no doubt authorize the
work, providing the patrons of the
school and the taxpayers genera' lv can
be made to understand the urgent need
Aa stated in lata issue, the directors
are up against the necessity of mak
ing some extensive improvements to
the old building. More room must
be provided and repairs are Deeded
that will call for the expenditure of
quite a gum of money. There can be
no going ahead with plans that are
matured for the betterment of the
school unless thrsa things are done,
and when you have fixed up the old
house it Is still unfit and not properly
located, and the money thos expended
is practically wasted. The good judg
ment of our people would seem to be
against any such procedure. It is
now a good time to push this along.
Let us have a suitable new school
bnilding, erected on lower ground
than the present site, and if possible
t us get this ready for consideration
at the annnal school meeting on the
17th of the coming month. To all
