Tie University is a concrete ct-
ample of prepress. Anyone who has i
been absent from the campus a few
yearn, returning today, will be as
tounded by the larpe prowth evidenc
ed by every department of the school.
In the last ten years the student
body has more than doubled, in fact,
nearly trebled, with many new build
ings entirely surrounding old Deady,
Villard and MeClure halls, the cam
pus group of the not far distant
past. But the President's office re
ports that the facilities are yet in
sufficient to care for the great in
crease in enrollment, and a ten mil
lion dollar endowment campaign has
been instituted in an endeavor to keep
the University apace with the de
mands made on it. The campaign,
started last year, is attempting to
raise a million dollars a year for ten
Even in its earlier years, before
"going to college" became quite so
popular, the University of Oregon
made a name for itself. In the ath
letic world especially it became prom
inent through its crack athletes, some
of whom still hold world records
on the track, and it produced great
football teams as well. But not alone
was this the extent of its influence
for many leading men of the state
and some of the United States re
ceived their college education at Or
egon. The influence of the University
in those days was great.
Now the University is entering up
on a new era. Greater numbers of
people are seeking a higher education.
and a revolution of educational meth
ods is taking place. Colleges and
universities are becoming more like
machines, having to be systematized
rry minutely to care for the wave
of students sweeping in upon them.
Oregon is changing under these con-j
ditions. and probably losing some of
its individuality of the old days. But i
its chances to offer a greater service
are larger than ever before. Its in
fluence will be much greater and the
ea!ibre of its president is shown by
his desire to know just what part
the institution is having in the prog
ress of the ttate and the country
generally. President Campbell has
nursed the University of Oregon from
its swaddling clothes to the great
thriving institution it is today, and
he has vision of a still greater Ore
gon in the years to come.
MR. CLEAVER'S MISTAKE.
WHEN George L. Cleaver made de
rogatory reference to the "man
hood" of our late President in his
talk before the state convention of
the W. C. T. U. in this city last week
he merely proved once more the type
of egotistical, intolerant man he is.
The remark vas most unfortunate, as
was the selection of Mr. Cleaver by
Governor Pierce as state prohibition

It i also reporu-d that the con
dition in the itte prohibition depart

to work with C.eaver deputies.
Most Deonie desire the strict n-
foicemert of the prohibition lawa.
and Governor Pierce will probably
uiMOver in the near future that the
fact tfat a man has run tor Ion
gres rn the prohibition ticket does
not rtcessanly mean that he it a ca
pable enforcement officer. However,
it wou'.d indicate that he had a cer
tain strength with prohibition voters,
ar.d that may justify such an appoint
ment as seen from the Governor
viewpoint. The Dailes Optimist.
WHILE it Oregon lines gather part
of the transcontinental busi
ness that helps Union Paciric System
earn a protit, the Oregon end of the
system barely pays expenses. During
111, O.-W. R. 6 N. Co. earned only
$62,270 on its Oregon lines, or
.00091 on its valuation of $tls.SS1.747,
less than one-tenth of one per cent to
apply on interest and dividends. It
took in $18,810,757 in operating rev
enues and paid out $18ul4!t.4S7 for la
bor, fuel, materials, supplies, loss and
dmge caiius, inur&iiCtf, Wxta, rent
al of equipment and rental of joint
facilities. Ail that was left for the
bondholders and owners was the dif
ference, which in turn was more than
iped out by losses on Washington
business. The Oregon lines could not
have shown any protit were they not
credited with main line earnings for
hauling Washington business along
the V- regon side of the Columbia Riv
er Le'tween Eastern Washington and
Western W aLhington. Oregon oter,
THERE is something wrong with our
brand of hard times. Some two
years ago people were heard to say
that they would store their automo
bile because they could not stand the
expense of operating it. bince then,
the registration of cars in the state
has increased from 120,000 to more
than 160.000. Pople said that they
could not pay their taxes, and yet
during the past three years taxes
have been paid up better in Grant
county than when we were prosper
ous. Something is wrong with our
hard times. Every jim-crack show h,
a full house; nearly every dance h,
walking room only; people are better
dressed than we ever saw them and
work less. Even the young folks in
school have the appearance of being
heirs of the ultra welt to do, The
card games at the pastimes are a con
tinuous performance and the fellows
who used to smoke a corn cob pipe
or roll their own cigarettes now all
smoke the tailor-made brand. Times
are hard ai right, but the most pe
culiar brand of hard times we ever
saw. We can not get used to broke
people wearing ten dollar shoes and
riding in a two thousand dollar car,
driving thirty miles to a dance and
living like life was one long, sweet
song. If this is the way they go when
they are broke we hope to have thi
opportunity of sitting on the side
lines and watching a really prosper
ous people go by. (Canyon City)

JUDGE GARY'S RUSE.
STOCKHOLDERS of the ( United
States Steel corporation aie natur
ally somewhat divided on the benefits
of prohibition, however agreed they
are on dividends. There are "dry"
stockholders and "wet" stockholders.
It will be readily understood then
that the "wet" ones did not in the
least approve of a recent stratagem
employed by Chairman Gary in be
half of prohibition. When the divi
dend envelopes were mailed Judge
Gary caused to be inserted in them
a statement of his veiws regarding
the success of prohibition. The ob
durate "wets' accepted the dividends
but they were wroth at the judge.
He had used the corporation's postage
to disseminate opinions with which
they could not agree.
Briefly Judge Gary asserted his be
lief that prohibition has resulted in
"a large decrease in the use of li
quor," at least near the corporation's
olants. "a large increase in bank
balance of savings deposits, and
noteworthy decrease in the number of
jails, asylums and hospitals." These
observations are by no means original
a more efficient workman than he wa
in the old days. These "wet" stock
holders must have a caie, for it seen.
they are heaving bricks at the gooe
which lays the golden eggs. Prohi
bition, of course, is not a tremendous
success if we admit that ucces sig-
mnea the thorough stamping out of
liquor traffic. But that it has re
turned big dividends as a social ard
economic investment few will deny -
and they only because they are hope
lessly wedded to their appetites, or
because they used to profit by the
sale of liquor.
Judge Gary s critics have retorted
that much grape wine is made in the
homes of Gary, lnd. This is unlaw
ful, the judge will admit, but it is his
privilege to ask them if they regard
grape wine in the home as an evil
equal or even comparable to the sa
loon. The most ambitious toper
would have to make and imbibe a
great deal of grape wine to expend a
single pay check, whereas in the day?
of yore a fellow could rid himself of
that check in an hour or so. The
judge probably would not defend the
grape wine, but there is no impro
priety in his suggesting that exuting
violations of the law do not begin to
bulk as large in their economic effect,
as did the evils of licensed traffic.
All the evidence of law violation
relatively speaking, is on the surface.
W e read of dissolute parties, of court
cases, of captured stills and of rum
running, because these are violations
of the law and as such are news. But
what we do not read is the unprinted
story of the average home, where less
money is wasted than ever before;
where more comforts are installed;
What we do not read is the unprinted
story of those men and women who
re tilling their place in society today
because they were spared the effects
of that system we have abandoned.
The violations are the froth of the
surface, but the current of national
life is itself clearer and finer and
more energetic than ever before.
We do not believe that this matter
of modifying the prohibition law will
ever come to a test. There is no real
demand for it, when the country at
large is considered. But if it does,
among the staunchest champions of
the present law will be numbered big
business men, wholesalers, manufac
turers, and retail dealers. For these
have been long convinced that prohi
bition has largely increased the pros
perity of America.
We wish to call attention that the
City Council does not desire to place
any restriction upon any reasonable
or lawful enjoyment or to interfere
with anyone enjoying themselves on
Hallowe'en; but the council is not
unmindful of the fact that heretofore
it has been the custom of some on
Hallowe'en, without regards for the
lives or rights of others, to place ob
structions upon the sidewalks and
streets and to maliciously destroy
property of others. The council in
sists that any person or persons plac
ing obstructions upon the sidewalks
or streets or destroying or molesting
the property of others shall be ar
rested and prosecuted, and we re-
I quest that the citizens arrest or re
port, and instruct the Marshal to ar
rest and prosecute all persons ob
structing the sidewalks or streets
or destroying or molesting the prop
erty of others.
