lower house against a property tax
for the 1925 exposition, is register
id at the Imperial. These two rep

land fair committee would arrive
w;th strong organization to advocate
the property tax idea, so they con
ceded the idea of gathering into one
fold such members as might prefer
some other plan of finance. With
this object they started circulating
a petition and within a few hours

farmine industry was in a state of
absolute collapse at the present time.
Farms capable of producing thirty
two billions of new wealth annually
are in the very worst possible shape.
Both young and old men are getting
away from the soil to go to the cit
ies, and those who stav behind can
not afford to buy seeds, tools, etc.
Neither can they afford to pay the
present wages demanded by farm
help. These conditions resulted in
a tacit understanding among sen
ators from the West and South, both
republicans and democrats, to do ev
erything in their power to relieve the
"The American farmer today is the
only business man in the world who
always sells at wholesale and who
always buys at retail.
"It was not the agricultural bloc
which put over the emergency tariff
measure but another group. Sena
tors who thought alike on any given
question were warranted in getting
together and working as a unit. New
England manufacturers, New York
bankers, and other industries take
similar means of obtaining desired
lesislation in congress."
The custom has so long been the
sole property of the populous East
that thev cannot realize that it is
proper for the farmers of the West

We wish all and every of our read
ers a Happy and Prosperous New
Year. We thank you and the business
men of Heppner and vicinity for the
verv liberal patroruige you have ex
tended us through the year 1921 and
promise to merit a continuance of the
same for 1922.
The past year has been a pretty
strenuous one for the business and
industrial affairs of Morrow county.
So much depends here on the success'
of the farmer and stockman, and
these two lines of endeavor have
been hard hit during 1921; their
labor has been profitless to a very
large extent and the heavy slump in
prices for sheep, wool, cattle ana
wheat has effected every class. We
are optimistic, however, and look for
ward to the new year with brighter
hopes. There has been in more re
cent days a better price and demand
for the wool and sheep, and the pres
ent indications are for an improve
ment in wheat prices. Morrow coun
tv will come back, and rapidly, too,
when there is the least possible in
ducement. We have been "up
against it" before and weathered the
storm, and everyone is going forward,
facing the new year with a faith that
all will be well. We will forget quite
soon the trials of the past and pre
pare ourselves to enjoy the sane pros
perity that is awaiting us. inus we
bid farewell to 1921. i
Heppner passed a joyous and hap
py Christmas. The greatest factor,
perhaps, in this joy was the giving to
others, and we are giaa to note mat
those who are in dire need seemed to
be uppermost in the minds of our
people. Generous gifts were made
to those of our own community, and
then the suffering ones in the Neai
East and other lands were thought of,
and many generous offerings taken
to help in the work of caring for
these. Churches, Sunday Schools,
lodges and various other organiza
tions have joined in this work, and
there will be a fine sum go out from
Heppner to help the sufferers in
