Hard To Reconcile.
How is the Bull Moose nartv goina
to reconcile its cardinal platform
plank "Thou shalt not stel" with its
avowed intention to choose in every
tate where it can be done, so-called
republican electors who are pledged
to cast thier vote In the electoral col
lege for Colonel Roosevelt running on
a third parry ticket?
Is it strictly ethical for a pary that
la busing its appral to the people on
tho commandment, "Thou shalt not
stel" to profit bv the votes of men
who are masquerading under the col
ors and name of the party that it has
expressly condemned and cast off?
Is it in accord with the spirit of
the commandment "Thou shalt not
steal" to stack the 'deck against an
opponent? For if the Bull Moose
party succeeds in uledsing republican
electors to cast their ballots io the
electoral college for a man who is
not the choice of the republican nary,
the republican voter will be playing
agairst a stacked deck. He will be
bucking a surething came. He will
be conifonted with the alternative of
votirg for an elector who is pledeed
not to carry out his will; or of not
voting at ail. Ha will thus 1"! bis

whan he breaks that pledge? A few
years :: there was an effort here in
Oregon to induce state legislators to
break their Statement Oue pledee,
which is essentially similar to the
elector's pledge. Was that consider
ed an ethical procedure? Or was it
not condemned with a violence that
was measured onlv by the limits of
the condemners' vocabulary?

Mr. H. H. CoheD, the gerial cron
statistican and commercial editor of
the Oregon Journal was in Condon this
week and made us a Dleasaut call.
He hai been all over these three coun
ties writing up crop conditions for his
publication. Mr. Cohen's estimate
of Gilliam county's grain exports this
fall i3 4, OCO ,000 bushels aud he has
not over estimated, as we are suing to
have an enormous crop. We insured
some wheat this week that will make
all of 40 bushels to the acre and per
haps more. Weather conditions are
ideal, and numbers of harvest hands
are coming in every evening. . Let
them come, there will be jobs for all
and to spare. In another couple of
weeks or ten days harvest will be
general all over the county and no
man need be idle that really wants to
work. Condon limes.
We rejoice with our Gilliam County
neighbors over this splendid crop
showing. They are entitled to it.
Morrow county is not behind either
and will deliver the greatest crop of
wheat io ita history. All we need is
a few years of what these counties are
to turn off this season.
Now if the proper time to be mak
ing selection of grains, for the Fall
fairs and care should be exercised in
preparing the grains in bundles of
proper dimension!. It will pay to
taki a lutle lime for this and get
gra.iiR with uniform heads and length
of straw. It shoold be made uo In
brndUs measuring about five inches
around and carefully ti d and labeled.
AH camples should bn delivered to
Judue C 0. Patterson, aeoretarv of
the Booster Club and he will care for
them until thu time for their shipment
to the fairs. All interested ptrties
can receive further information by
calling on or addressing the Secretary
at Heppner. Don't pass this uu for
Morrow county must have a proper
showing at the fairs and land ehowa.
There is not a better way to adver
tise our resources. There ia a $300(1
prize to be carried off by some local
ity in the Northwest: Morrow conuty
has always stood at the head n the
grain contests at world's fairs and
county fairs and it shonld stand a
gocd chance to get this prize this sea
son. Heppner's streets are getting
mighty dusty, especially Main street,
and thn nuisance is almost, intolerable
when the wind blows, even slightly.
Just why the water-wagou has jumped
the job, this paper does not know,
unless it is a sort of a holtl-np same.
The city is not ready with their water
yet for this pupose, and it is begin
ning to develoD that they will not
likely have enough water from the
well recently dug. In the meantime
a number of the business men are be
coming very much interested in the
proposition to oil the streets if it is
found that the experiment can be car
ried out without too much expense.
Many believe that the oiling of the
streets will settle the dust pru'ulem.
as well as kill off the weeds and
grass that grows along the edges of
the walks and becomes such a nuisa

FROM OVER THE STATE.
CVnui unity spirit was demons'rated
to a remarkable extent by Oregon
cities at the recent TJkls convention in
Poralnd. This was one of tiio most
notable features of the gathering.

exist made a surprisingly good show

Those who have beleved Oregon to
be a state with one city changed their
minds when they saw the parade ;and
the long column of Elks from the four
cornors of the state sweep along Port
land's streets. The active support of
the state cities made the parade the
big success it proved. The occasion
further proved how much Portland
relies on its friends in the interior in
accomplishing any really big thing

Is that of probable pain. Although nu

Tbe truth Is, the name was created by
Washington Irving, who applied It to
all residents of New York In bis time

this quaint Dutch character lu bis
