Is A Sacred Thing.
Personality is a sacred thing,
Whether one accept or rejoet the the
ory that God created man in his own
image and likeneBs and pronounced
bis wore good, whether one believe or
doubt that there is a divine element
in men, practically all Americans
hold to the divineness and sacredness
of man as man.
Those qualities pass over from men
to the works of men. Society and
political institutions have a sacred
ness of their own.
The presidency of the American
democracy, the headship of more than
90,1)00,000 self-governins people, is
clothed with a real sanctity.
It is sacred because it expresses and
incarnates the sovereignty tit the peo
ple, who are the fount of authority
and the source of law and power.
The sacredness of personality em
bodied in the supreme office that em
bodies the personal authority of over
90.000,0(0 Americans who have dele
gated their sovereignty to one man
for four years.
The Amerioan presidency is the
most auguBt of human authorities in
the sphere of secular government.
Not even the king of England nor
the emperor of Russia compares in
this respect with the president of the
United States They represent mere
lv the tradition of inherited and exter
nal authority over their subjects. He
stands forth as the people themselves
through their fellow citizen exercising
sovereignty. Lack of respeot for the
presidency would result in loss of
reverence for he people.
The presidency has been glorified
by the statesmanship of Washington
and sanctified by the martyrdom of
It has been held up by Jefferson
and Madison, by Roosevelt and Taft,
as presidents, to the lofty level to
which the father and the saviour of
his country eaoh lifted it.
A president is not merely the first
citizen of the United States, but is
that plus the public and official citi
zenship of all Ameiicans as embodied
in bis high office.
It ought therefore to be held in rev
erence by every, citizen, for it ex
presses him at bis largest and best as
Loss of reverence for what the
presidency stands for would inflict
grave damage on American character
and American life.
At Canyon City on Wednesday of
last week, George W. Anderson was
acquitted on the charge of murder in
second decree for the killing of George
W. Barnes. This waa the second
trial of Anderson, a hung jury last
November resulting in a retrial at the
May term of court. ,
President Taft bas granted an un
conditional pardon to willard N.
Jones, convicted of land fraud in 1905
at the trials conductd by Francis J.
Heney and Detective Burns. Pardon
as based on the ground that improper
methods had been pursued in filling
the jury box from which the Jones
jury was drawn. It was anything
with Heney and Burns to get convic
tions; they cared but little how it was
The Pacific States Telephone com-
oany ought to come to Grant county
and carefully pick up their Long creek
line and take it east for a relic. What
the line is maintained for no one
knows, as no one in recent years has
ever carried on a conversation over it.
It is as dead as a last year'a presiden
tial boom. The funniest part of it
all is no one is vexed or disappointed
and if the people of the northern end
of the county are asked if thsy have
telephone communication they just
grin and say "Y-a-p." No one ex
pects it to work and it never disap
points, and when the people are in a
uriy they bitch op a team and drive
distance say of 40 or 60 miles. This
makes it alow and yet infinitely faster
than the phone line to Long creek.

FROM OVER THE STATE.
Bumper crops and prevailing good
prices are expected to put the farm
ers of the Pacific Northwest in high
good humor this Fall, and through
him, the three states are expeoted to
prosper as never before. Every Indi
cation is for big vields in all the
staple products and for -some prices
will be very high. The biggest wheat
crop ever harvested is predicted for
Oregon, Washington and Idaho and
it is thought the yield will reach
70,000,000 bushels, worth $52,500,000,
Oats are expected to add $18,G7R,000 to
the farmer's bank roll and barley
$9,900,000 more. Fruit marketed
this Fall and Winter will add 115,000
000 to this new wealth and hay the
neat sum of 138.390,000. The wool
crop is estimated to be worth $6,600
000. and hops 14.650.000. This Is a
total income for the producres of the
three states of almost $150,000,000. If
the manufactured produots were added
to the wealth of the soil, it is proba
ble the total would fall not far below
$500,000,000 for the year.
Indicating the desire of the railway
company to stimulate the livestock
industry in every possible way, the
O.-W. R. & N. Co. has just named
D. E. Clark livestock agent. , This is
a new position and he will give his
time to aiding the stockmen of the
state to grow more and better horses,
cattle, sheep and hogs.
Now that the three year homestead
bill seems certain to beoome a law.
interest is being aroused anew in Ore
gon's vacant lands. Statistics have
been gathered from the records of the
General Land Offioe-, showing there is
lots of room in this state for the
homesteader, there being 15,959,377
acres still unappropriated. This is a
little more than one-quarter of the
state's tarea. Every county in the
state has its quota and while most of
the land is far from the larger towns,
much of it is fertile and will be pro
ductive when tilled.
Oregon has an opportunity to attract
settlers from the Middle West by
making good exhibit at the North
western Products Exposition at Min
neapolis, November 12-23, according
to Will A. Campbell, secretary, who
was lately visited Portland. There
is nothing so convincing as an actual
exhibit of what a state can produce.

Many Lawns In Heppner
Having noted that many of the
lawns of Heppner are being taken by
dandelion, our friend, J. T. Knappen
berg, of lone, sends up the following:
The most effective and practicable
method of clearing a dandelion infest
el lawn, other than by hand digging,
is by the use of iron sulphate applied
as a spray. The writer has succeeded
with three applications in entirely
killing all plants of this common lawn
pest without injuiing the grass. A
portion of the lawn so badlv infested
that hardly anything but dandelions
was visible a year ago is now without
a single plant and the grass has thick
ened a good deal in consequence.
A solution of copperas or iron sul
phate made by dissolving at the rate
of 1 1-4 pounds of the, salt in a gallon
of water should be applied to the
lawn with a sprav pump so as to wet
every.' plant. It will not do to use a
common sprinkler. The solution must
be pat on in the form of a fine spray
aoplied with some force to be most
effective. A common bucket spray
pump, or even a hand atomizer, for
very small areas, is suitable, provid
ing it makes a fine, forcible spray.
De not try to hit the dandelions only,
but cover every square inoh of the
lawn. In this way all seedling plants
will be killed. Put on a second ap
plication in two to three weeks and a
third and possibly a fourth late in the
summer if any of the dandelions start
into growth. The grass will be black
ened for a short time, but soon recov
ers and atfer a watering and mowing
will appear darker green than before.
Do not allow the solution to get on
oemeot or stone walks as it produces
a rather permanent yellow stain.
