The Sins of the Fathers.
A N EXCHANGE of ours la
A mcnts as follows, anen' the
habit many folks have of trading
aav from home:
"The wicked process of self
annihilation goes merrily on in
the country. All that has been
said on the subject seems to have
no effect. Some of the best econ
omists in the country have de
voted time and thought to this
problem and all are agreed that
the fata! habit of trading away
from home is one of the most
wickedly wasteful things indulged
in by the American people. Like
all insidious habits, it grows, and
in many communities the whole
population are affected. In these
communities bank failures are
common and all business houses
are working on borrowed money.
Property values hit the toboggan
sooner or later and labor of all
kinds is poorly paid. Business
men of keenest perception watch
the decline of the old home town
and wonder what has come to
pass. They blame everything un
der the sun for the slump. Jones
sells automobiles to the people of
Punkville and buys his stoves in
Brighton, and wonders why the
Punkville people drive the same
cars for five or six years. The
Punkville banker carries the punk
paper of the Punkville merchant
and buys his merchandise in
Brighton, and complains because
the local bank has raid no divi
dends for several years. And thus
the bad matter grows worse until
poor old Punkville is deader than
a door nail. A business revival
is nothing more nor less than a
return of sanity to the people of
a communty."

Market Agent Seems
Doomed.
Oregon Voter.
FROM the suddenness of the
attack upon the office of the
State .Market Agent and its letter
writing occupant, C. E. Spence, it
appears that there is determined
sentiment to abolish that office,
entirely and completely. It is sig
nificant that Senators Ritner and
Taylor introduced the senate bill
seeking Spence's removal. Sen
ator Taylor supported the creation
of the office two years ago, and is
a democrat. Now Taylor and his
colleague senator and grain pro
ducer, Senator Ritner, are con
vinced that the office is inimical
to the interests of the Eastern Or
egon grain grower.
It is charged that inspectors
formerly working out of that of
fice graded grain severely when it
was received from the farmer, and
graded it liberally when it was
sent out to the purchaser. When
the cause of this embarrassment
to the grower was removed, Gov
ernor Pierce promised to appoint
experienced grain men to the re
sponsible positions in that office.
This has not been done, say those
responsible for the bill that has
been introduced, although a sub
ordinate in the employ of the mar
ket agent is said to have satisfac

tory experience but his appoint
ment did not affect the overhead
of the office an expense to which
the grain growers object, believ
ing that they are bearing an un
just proportion of the cost of a
single state office.
The determination of some
members of both houses to force
the issue with the governor almost
before the echoes of his message
had died away, bespeaks their de
termination, an attitude that may
bring woe to His Excellency be
fore the session is over.
S-S-S
Should Be Better Paid.
IN DISCUSSING the message
of Governor Pierce, wherein
the governor dwelt upon the "in
justices" of the Oregon svstem of
property assessment, C C Chap
man of the Oregon Voter makes
the following comment:
The "injustices" in Oregon system
of property assessments are not
"wrongs" in the sense that they are
premeditated or that they are the re
sult of deliberate mal-adjustment of
values. They should be corrected,
and property of like character and a
like adjusted value should be uni
formly assessed. But one important
fact contributing to the inequalities
in assessed values is the unwilling
ness of the people in many if not all
counties to provide sufficient funds
for the county assessor's office with
which a true and accurate assessment
of property might be made. Equit
able adjustments cannot be made by
poorly paid officials. Constant cry of
unremitting economy even as applied
to salaries of public officials, a cry
which Governor Pierce himself voices
towards the end of his message, is
an important contributing factor to
the very evil of which the governor
so bitterly cries. Incidentally, the
governor, as member of the State Tan
Commission, is vested by law with the
responsibility of correcting the in
equalities of which he complains.
They should be corrected, another
governor should make an effort to
correct them.
We would concur in what is
said above touching the pay of
assessors. In far too many in
stances in this etare the man fill
ing this position is too poorly
paid the office does not appeal
to the man of ability because of
this, hence the state suffers. We
do not advocate princely salaries
tor public omcials, but the pay
should be somewhat in proportion
to the importance of the work to
be done, and the office of assess
or is about the most important one
on the list of county officials.
S-S-S
Dogs In Motorcars.
LIKE the horse, the dogs find
themselves living in a new
world to which they are not fully
adapted. Many dog owners take
their pets aboard the family car
when going for a drive or even a
transcontinental motor trip and
find them useful and cnnoenial
company. Others tie them on the
running Doard, or let them chase
the car until exhausted. The Ore
eon Humane Society has nrenared
" -j r - f
an act of the legislature requiring
tenders or guard rails to proteoct
the dog from falling off when car
ried on the outside of a motor ve
hicle. All states should require
such protection for our best
friend.
S-S-S
A Creed.
A COLLEGE professor, called
on to answer the question,
"What is the American creed?"
gives seven specifications, men
tioning cleanliness, abiding by the
rules of the game, domination of
the interests of public welfare,
belief in the laws of nature, be
lief in the future, belief in service
and belief in the spiritual nature
of man.
Perhaps he is right in putting
cleanliness first, in view of all its
connotations, of which modern
plumbing is but a small part. But
all seven are involved in one an
other and particularly in the idea
of building for the future, since
THE GAZETTE-TIMES, HEPPNER. OREGON, THURSDAY, JANUARY 22, 1925.
none would be much worth while
if they were not to endure.
Belief in the laws of nature is
manifested increasingly not only
by science but by religion, and the
tremendous growth of the schools
is sufficient evidence that Ameri
cans think they are building for
more than the day. It may not
be a perfect creed, but it has nu
merous good points.
S-S-S
There is still much diversion of
opinion among wheat growers of
the county as to the damage to
crops suffered by the cold spell
of three weeks ago. We were
shown samples of wheat that were
gathered from different farms
over the north end of the county
the first of the week. It there
was any life in the grain it could
not be discovered, and there can
be no doubt whatever but that
many fields have suffered heavily
and reseeding will have to be
done. As the weather conditions
are much milder now. the pvtpnt
of the damage can be better as
certained, and a week or so more
of this warm weather will show
just how much of the grain is ac
tually killed.

Our Washington Letter
n. p. s.
Washington, D. C, Jan. 20. The
resignation of Secretary of State
Charles Hughes has caused unusual
regret. It is also regretted that our
laws do not provide proper compensa
tion to public servants who can only
serve their country at a great per
sonal financial sacrifice. For nearly
twenty years Mr. Hughes ha3 given
himself to public service, and the
reason of his resignation is that he
feels that it is his duty to his family
to retire to private life and resume
the practice of law.
Ambassador Frank B. Kellogg, now
at the Court of St. James, as the
British post is known in diplomatic
parlance, has achieved fame as a
lawyer. Kellogg is thoroughly versed
in diplomatic matters and his stand
ing as a jurist is of the highest.
Charles Beecher Warren of Michi
gan, who has been appointed to sue
ceed Harlan Fiske Stone, just nro-
moted to a seat on the United States
Supreme bench, is another brilliant
lawyer who has faithfully and suc
cessfully served his country. From a
legal standpoint, Mr. Coolidge has se
cured the services of one of the most
brilliant lawyers in the country.
There is no doubt but that other
changes will take place in the Cabin
et. Some of these may occur on the
4th of March and some at a later
date.
There will be no extra session of
Congress unless some urgent and now
unforseen demand arises. The ad
ministration and party leaders feel
that the general business of the coun.
try is such that emergency legislation
is not needed nor practical at the
moment.
At the present time the commis
sions appointed by President Coolidge
are carefully considering such legis
lation as will be of material benefit
to the agricultural and cattle inter
ests of the country, also legislation
that will benefit other branches of
industry that have not as yet entirely
recovered from the post-war slump.
These commissions are proceeding
carefully but thoroughly to consider
the questions at issue and when their
findings have been completed, the rec
ommendations will embrace such rem
edies and these will be so worded as
to remove the necessity of prolonged
debate in either House or Senate.
Law enforcement rests with the
people and not the legislative or even
the administrative office of the gov
ernment. The will for law-enforcement
must originate with the people
and without their support the satutes
of cities and of the nation and the
ordinances of cities and town become
mere printed words and phrases.
This thought from the first has been
prominent in all the public express
ions of President Coolidge. It is the
underlying motive of the recent con
ference which he held in Washington
with representatives of the committee
of 1000. When men like Judge Elbert
H. Gary, the head of an enormous in
dustrial organization and John D.
Rockefeller, Jr., who, although a lay
man, has become the spirit in great
public undertakings and who yearly
gives millions of dollars to worthy
causes, step forward to advise the
President that the people are ready
to obey as well as enact laws, we can
well consider that the tide has turn-
