Crowd! Totalling More Then 40M
Witness Wild Weet Production
Psgesnt Well Managed and May
Become Annual Feat.ro Here. .
Tha success of Heppner'e Drat Ro
deo, tha fin manner in which It waa
handled throughout, tho record
breaking crowda in attendance, have
combined to encourage our folki to
make the pageant an annual affair for
Heppner, and there noma little doubt
now but this will be tho caae.
The weather conditiona were Ideal,
following tho big rain on Tuesdsy
night, and the manner in which the
event! at the ground! were all pulled
off combined to put the . large crowda
in daily attendance in the best of
apiriti, and tha performance! of all
three days were greatly enjoyed. Tha
record crowds were in the city on
Friday and Saturday, however, and
more than 4000 people witnessed the
parades on the streets and the stunts
at Gentry field. And then there were
just hundreds and hundreds of sutos,
parked in a aemi-elrcle entirely sur
rounding the track that made a grand
spectacle of itself.
Of course, by comparison with tha
big Pendleton event, Heppner's Ro
deo was not large, but it was im
mensely pleasing to our people be
cause the participants and ths stock
were all local. The rain had put tha
track and arena in fine ahape for all
events and the management caused
everything to move up promptly with
no delays to cause impatience on the
part of the audience.
A nice feature of the Rodeo was
tha paradea each day these being
especially fine on Friday and Satur
day. They were led by the officials
and Queen Marjorle (Miss Harjorie
Clark), followed by hundreds of cow
boys, cowgirls and others on horse
back, with the Ford caravan filling in
for good measure and the band from
The Dallea making good music.
C. W. McNeraer .L. V. Gentry and
C. H. Latourell were the efficient
committee In charge, and R. J. Cara
ner of Spray, Chance Wilson of Mon
ument and Ben Jory of Hermliton,
were judges of events, and gsve per
fect satisfaction in all decisions ren
dered. No serious accidents occurred
and there waa no one hurt, except one
of the little mules from ths Billy
Padberg ranch, used in the bucking
contest, which in lome manner broke
a front leg and had to be shot.
Ths evening entertainments were
carried on at the fair grounds and
here the merry-go-round and Ferris
wheel furnished much amusement
for the kiddies and young folks, while
others snjoyed the dances in the pa
vilion and helped along the Legion
boys by partaking of refreshment! at
the "bar" and patronizing the various
games, reminders of events long past,

VS. FIRE FIGHTING
This Country Behind Earope in Pre
vention of Fire, But Fir Fight
ing Efficiency la Greater.
While the equipment and efficiency
of lire departments on this aide of the
water ia much superior to that of
European fire departments, ths fire
loss per capita ia six tlmea aa great
here as It is in tha principal countries
The reason is that little attention ia
paid here to the prevention of fire.
whereas abroad fire is regarded as a
erime and steps are taken to fix re
sponsibility for It whenever it occurs.
In Europe they are evidently not un
der the delusion that insurance pays
all the loss, but realise that what is
consumed by the flaroea ia gone for
ever, and can not be restored. Insur
ance is but a means of distributing
the fire waste tax.
While the public here complains
about fire insurance rates, it does not
take tha sure wayto get lower rates
by following the example of the coun
tries of Europe and enacting and en
forcing measures for the prevention
of fire. The people prefer to psy the
losses of their neighbors caused by
carelessness, etc., rather than compel
their neighbora to build aafely and
maintain their premises in a clean
and orderly manner, so aa to reduce
the danger of fire not only to their
own property but to the the property
of tha entire community.
Little or no effort ia made to fix
responsibility on those through whose
negligence fires are permitted to start.
In European countries rsponsibility
attaches for damage done to your
neighbor's property by a fire originat
ing on your own premises, and there
are, besides, penalties for fires aris
ing through avoidable causes. Every
fire is investigated.
The development of fire depart
ments here has nearly all been along
the line of fire fighting, while fire
prevention has been the study of Eu
rope. While their fire righting ap
paratus and efficiency of personnel
do not compare with ours, they do not
have tha fires to fight, and their fire
loss is one-sixth ours."
It haa been aptly pointed out that
while we have been spending our time
devising new and more powerful types
of apparatus, and also building wood
en cities, Europesn countries have
been studying the fire resisting power
of materials of construction and have
taken advantage of the latest knowl
edge of construction to enact modern
building lawa, with tha rsult that
they have substantial cities and a low
fire loss. They have thus minimised
the insurance tax, not by expert fire
fighting, but by fire prevention.
Introduction of Power Machinery
Haa Made Agricultural One of
the Hazardoae Pursuits.
In the Extension Service News of
the Oregon Agricultural College for
August the following article of gen
eral interest is found and all further
information relative to the subject
can be obtained by correspondence
with the State Industrial Accident
Commission at Salem:
While in practically every state
having compensation laws agriculture
is excluded In one way or another
from the enumeration of "hazardous
employments," yet every authoritative
writer on the subject admits or as
serts that there is no practical reason
for the exclusion. Carl Hookstadt, of
the United States Bureau of Labor
Statistics, who has made an exhaust
ive study of the compensation laws
and their history in this country and
in Europe, In referring to that phase
of the question, says:
"Tha reason for the almost univer
sal exclusion of agriculture in the
United States can hardly lie in the
fact of its nonhazardous character.
European experience, combined with
available accident statistics in this
country, proves quite conclusively
that agriculture is a highly hazard
Many forme of effort on the farm
and in the orchard and garden which
were heretofor performed by hand
and with the aid of horse power, are
today prosecuted with power-driven
machinery, thus multiplying the pos
sibilities of accident, aa well as in
creasing tho serious nature of injuries
liable to occur.
There are many situations arising
in tha employment of farm labor
wherein a serious injury would be
painfully oppressive. The cases are
few and exceptional among farmers
wherein either the employer or the
workman could bear the financial loss
incident to a bad accident without
serious inconvenience. The individual
farmer who hires a few hands nearly
all tha time and hires a greater num
ber during certain ' seasons, could
easily be placed in very bad circum
stances by an accident. Many farm
ers frequently call in a few neighbors
to help in harvest, or threshing, or
hauling or wood cutting. Those neigh
bors may be in moderate circum
stances, perhaps with families to sup
port If one of them sustained a se
vere injury he is entitled to make
claim for damages. If a neighbor he
does not wish to press such claim; the
employer recognises a duty on his
part to help the stricken man and his
family; hence, no matter what the
decision reached, there Is suffering
If the farmer is under the Compen
sation Act all that is avoided. Thru
the amall contributions made month
ly to the state fund the injured work
man ia taken care of both as to medi
cal attention and compensation for
time loss and all the disagreeable
complications and anxieties are re
moved. There is no humiliation or
hardship and the needed help is sup
plied at once. No moral, legal, or
friendly responsibility remains Un
fulfilled. There is an Independence
and self-preservation about it that
should commend the arrangement to
every thinking mind.
The only thing the average cltiien
is sure of ia that no matter who is in
power, there will b taxes.
Prominent Southern Man Gave Res-
sons Why Oregoei Should Not Pass
Compulsory School Measure. Good
Audience to Hear Him,
Hon. Dudley G. Wooten, former
congressman from Texas and ex-am'
bassador to Mexico, as well as being
a fellow graduate of Wood row Wilson
from Princeton University, was in
Heppner on Saturday, and in the eve
ning addressed a large gathering of
citizena in front of Hotel Patrick on
"The Government Ownership of Chil
dren." His. address was in opposi
tion to the school bill coming up to
be voted on at the general election in
Mr. Wooten is a very scholarly gen
tleman, and his address, which was
not lengthy, waa delivered in an earn
est spirit, free from rancor, and his
message was apparently well received-
He showed himself to be thoroughly
familiar with the educational biil, and
stated in part:
"This so-called Compulsory Educa
tion Bill, which is really a bill to es
tablish state monopoly of education,
and ultimately of religion, belongs to
the family of visionary and vicious
measures that are being conceived in
a spirit of hostility to existing insti
tutions, and propagated by a cam
paign of deception, bigotry, preju
dice and misguided zeal for impossi
ble and undesirable reforms. A long
time ago the wise old Englishman, Dr.
Samuel Johnson, said that 'patriotism
is the last refuge of a scoundrel,' and
an equally wise American, Oliver
Wendell Holmes, said that 'the desire
to better their fellows frequently
leads men along the verge of the
abyss of mental unsoundness.' I will
not say that all of the advocates of
this bill are scoundrels or insane, but
I will say that there is a considerable
number of its noisiest supporters who
are unsound in principle and distort
ed in mentality, and these agitators,
by the very violence of their attacks
upon religion, morality and common
decency, have deluded many good peo
ple into believing that there is a real
necessity for such legislation. An
other class behind the bill is more
dangerous, because more plausible
and insidious in its fallacious argu
ments, which has in view the utter
destruction of the American system
of constitutional government, and the
substitution therefor of a Prussian
ized, despotic state, whose autocracy
would obliterate all individual and
personal liberty and make the citi
zens slaves of an organized state
monopoly from the cradle to the
grave. Such a system is worse than
Prtisaianism it is Russian Sovteasni,
the most hideous form of Socialism,
that has been put into effect by Le-
nine and Trotsky, to the consterna
tion of the civilized world and the
desolation of Russia.
"This bill ought to be called a bill
to estublish the government owner
ship of children, for it seeks to usurp
the right and duties of parents, to
make them mere trustees for state
tyranny and monopoly, to step be
tween the fathers and mothers of the
land and their offsprings, to disrupt
the sacred ties and obligations of do
mestic life, to tear asunder those
whom God hath joined together, and
to dominate the Uvea and liberties
of coming generations by standardiz
ing and compelling a course of public
education for the youth of the coun
try that will be sterilizedof all re
ligious and moral culture and adopt
ed to the forecable establishment of a
socialized commonwealth, in which
children will be reared after the man
ner of a poultry-yard or a stock farm.
'The fundamental motive of this
proposed change in the educational
system of the State of Oregon is to
banish all recognition of religion, and
morality founded upon religion, from
the schools of this state.
"The enormous expense that will be
entailed upon the taxpayers of Ore
gon if this bill becomes a law is be
yond question, but it la difficult to
accurately estimate. From official
and unofficial sources it appears there
are about fourteen thousand children
in the private schools of the state
who will be compelled to go to public
schools under the proposed law, Ac
cording to modern educational meth
ods, thirty-five children are allotted
to each school room, which means
four thousand new school rooms for
these children, and according to the
statistics for modern school buildings
there is an average cost of ten thous
and dollars for each school room.
This means an increased expense of
$4,000,000, to be paid for either in
bonds or by direct taxation.
"This bill was instituted by fraud,
misrepresentation, and misunder
standing," the speaker further stated.
"The men who fathered the bill false
ly claimed they had obtained 60,000
signatures in one day, when as a mat
ter of fact, after the secretary of
state has rejected the names of those
duplicated and illegal, there were in
round numbers 16,000 petitioners for
Speaking of those opposed to the
bill, the speaker said, "we find there
have been filed with the Secretary of
State at Salem, strong arguments
against it by the Lutherans, Seventh
Day Adventists, the Catholics, the
Episcopalians, the Presbyterians, the
principals of leading private schools
and a number of prominent citizens
and taxpayers of the city of Portland
of all shades of religious belief, and
some of them with no religion, and
some of them leading Masons. In fa
vor of the bill we find that the lead
ing element is the secret organiza
tion known as the Ku Klux Klan, with
its auxiliaries under the fantastical
names of the 'Ladies of the Invisible
Kmpire' and the 'Royal Riders of the
Red Robe.' "
In conclusion Mtv- Wooten stated
his lellef that if the bill is adopted
it will have the effect of working
much injury to the state of Oregon,
and hinder enormously the develop
ment of resources and Increase of
population in this state. His idea
was that this state cannot possibly
afford to adopt a law like this.
Miss M. Clowery, nurse in the office
of Dr, McMurdo, who has been spend
ing a vacation of some three months,
returned home on Tuesday.

Morrow County Will Have Smut
In order to more carefully check
upon the value of the different chemi
cals for treating wheat for smut and
to try out some of the smut resistant
wheat, arrangements were made by
the County Agent with County As
sessor J. J. Wells near Heppner for
a amall strip of summer fallow, where
numeroua testa will be made during
this coming year. D. E. Stephens of
the Moro experiment station is fur
nishing a number of varieties of
smut-resisting wheat which have
been heavily amutted, which will also
be tried out in this nursery.
In addition to the valuable data
which should be obtained from these
plots many of the farmers will find it
worth while to visit them next spring
to get first-hand information. -

The Ross Evangelistic Company,
now engaged in holding meetings in
Portland, have been secured for a
meeting with the Christian church in

Rev. Geo. B. VanWaters of Oregon
conducted the burial services. I have
known the deceased lady since she
first came amongst us and found her
a lady of sterling qualities, ever ready
and willing at any time to sympathize
and help all those in trouble and also
join in with all our merry doings. Be
loved and sadly missed by all of us.
A devoted wife and mother. Our deep

USE LIME BATH
County Agent Calkins Gives Results
of Tests Recently Made In Wheat
Treatments. Using Lime Bath In
By C. C. CALKINS, County Agt .
We have repeatedly called attention
to the importance of dipping wheat in
the lime bath following treatment
with bluestone. These recommenda
tions have been based upon careful
experiment made In treating wheat.
A large number of the fannen who
have ' been -treating with- Milestone
this fall, have adopted this practise.
A test which waa recently made at
the Northwest Hay and Grain Show
at Pendleton shows up a different ger
mination where the lime bath was
used and no doubt will be of interest
to many. Below we are listing the
germination percentage obtained by
the different methods of treatment:
No treatment .98 perct
Copper Carbonate .. .94 perct
Bluestone (1 lb. to 5 gal.,
soaked for five minutes,
followed by lime bath) 87 perct
Bluestone (as above without
lime bath .. 64 perct
Formaldehyde (1 to 40
soaked 5 minutes) 81 perct.
It will be noted that an increase of
23 per cent was obtained by dipping
in the lime bath. The procedure rec
ommended is to soak the wheat in the
bluestone solution for five minutes,
let it drain and then dip it in a lime
bath made by dissolving one pound
of lime to each ten gallons of water.
The lime bath is inexpensive and
should be changed occasionally.
In all tests where copper carbonate
waa used the stand has been practic
ally the same as for untreated wheat
Between twenty and twenty-live
thousands acres will be seeded in
Morrow county this fall with wheat
treated with Copper Carbonate, in
addition to this the office is arranging
for numerous checks on other farms
scattered over the county as com
pared with formaldehyde, bluestone,
Seed o San and Corona Copper for the
control of smut. The date of emer
gence and the difference in stands
will also be checked upon.

Registration Books To
Close Saturday, Oct. 7
The registration books for voters
will close on Saturday, Oct. 7, and
from present indications there will
be many who will have to go to a lot
of trouble in order to vote at the'
coming state election. Besides many
new voters in the county, there are
many who, because they failed to vote
at previous elections, have had their
names stricken from the registration
books, and it will be necessary for
these to register again. It will be up
to these folks to get a move on them
selves if they get their names on the
books before Saturday night
Mr. Pierce Would Ac
cept Aid In Campaign
Indicating that the Pierce-for-Gov-
ernor campaign will be earned direct
to the people before the rapidly on
coming day of election, an advertise
ment is appearing simultaneously this
week in the newspapers of the state
making a plea for dollar subscriptions
on the basis that this candidate ia one
of the people and dependent upon ths
rest of the people to elect him.
The issue seems to dwell particu
larly upon reduced taxes and no hint
is given or claim made of party or
partisan affiliations, but a clear cut
delineation of government for the
people and by the people.
In the matter of campaign expenaes
it is pointed out that Mr, Pierce him
self is hardly able to bear the brunt
of placing hia cause before tha vot
ers of Oregon, and, unsupported by
wealthy and influential corporations,
it haa been necessary to depend upon
the small contributions of those who
may have both a dollar and a vote.
A clean campaign is pledged through
out FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH.
Political rallies, educational rallies,
social rallies, are all well, but no
more in order than a Bible School
Rally. This will be observed on Sun
day next and every member of the
Bible School is expected to be pres

itors in general, are cordially invited.
The services begin at ten o'clock and
will close about noon. The rallying
will be continued through the day.
