THOMPSON'S SWAMI l,AM)
1 1 1 I.I,
A few of Senator Thompson's friends
are doirg their utmost to fit feat his
measures before tne 1 ecislature. It
would he amuinif, if the questions
were not so serio.i to the weitareof
the peoi ' '.trc-, i'1 rend their
effusions. One wie crresoondent
writts that the lands in Lake Countv
which will re affected by his bill pro
vidirg for r claiming swamp lands will
amount to lld.000 acres valued at $2,
075,01X1. An.i yet this correspondent
oproes the measure because "under
the provisions of the bill the acquisi
tion of large tracts by companies is
perrnitied." The writer undoubtedly
knew the statement to be false, else
he i woefully ignorant. Trie same
writer states that under the provisions
of the bill 235 000 acres fsn be reclaim
ed by lowering the waters of Goose
Lake, and adds: " This character of
land has soli for good prices ard is
easily worth $25 per acre," a total of
$825,000. Another correspondent saya :
"Tne land that wou'd be reclaimed by
lewerirg the waters of tre lake are
practically worthless, as it is alkali
or forta " And this latter correpsond
nt d'-fs not want the bill to become a
law because to lower the waters of
Gese Lake would entail much loss to
settlers who have taken up land under
the preemption and homestead laws
and terder adjoining lands valueless.
The creemrjtinn law was repealed many
jea-c ajo, and practic.-.Ty all nf the
lands t at oul'i be atfeeted by the
drainage of the like pissed into private
ownership many years sir.ee. although
there may be two or three homestead
ers whose lands would b affected.
And it Is likely that trev would prefer
having the Ukebed fawared a few j
inches at lea-t.
It is nut to he denied that in a few
individual Instances the lowering of
Uoorse Lake would prove a detriment,
but few will contend that lowering the
lake will pn ve a serious disadvantage
to the community at lagre. We all
know the quality of the lands subject
to overflow, ard to compare theii
worth with lands that are above the
high water mark is scarcely to be
thought of now1ays.
When Governor West sifts bis corre
spondence down he will probably be in
a greater quandry t-an ever relative
to the merit of the Thompson bill.
And it might te incidntally added
that no member of the Examiner force
has ever heard tt.e bill criticised, al
though a few have acknowledged that
they were not familiar with the pro
vision of the me tsore.

All over the broad land the 22d of
February, Washington's birthdav, is
How shall any man add augnt to the
praise and eulogy of George Wasnmg
ton? History and biography, elo
quence and poetry have exhausted their
combined efforts upon the successful
leader of the American Revolution
and the founder of the American repub
lic our first great national hero.
Every crisis in the history of the
world has found its great man to guide
and control it. Call this providence
or accident, the American revolution
was no exception to it. Before the
first murmers of discontent were heard
in that struggle the man whs being
prepared for the crisis. Un the banks
of the Potomac and Rappannock, thirty
years before Lexington and bunker
Hill, a truthful and manly boy was
groing op, ripening into stalwart
young manhood. With only the com
mon school education of that dav the
young man was soon being educated
in the broader school of nature and ex
perience, in the great forest, under the
operT heavens, with his surveyor's chain
and his sword, in the Indian wars, de
fending the frontier settlements from
the savage incursions.
That the "middle-man" bogy and the
"high cost of living ' seem to be over
looked since the inauguration of the
parcel puU system. If published re
ports are true it Is nothing unusual for
a suburban resident or person living
on a rural delivery route to pav from
10 to 50 per cant of the original cost of
an article to have it delivered to him
by parcel post. To pay a cents for the
delivery ot a 25 cent steak seems
very little,, but it amounts to 20 per
cent of the original cost just the same.
Perhaps after a time those ot us who
have had the experience of buying di
rect from tne producer or selling direct
to the consumer, as the case may be,
tSus avoiding the "middle-man," may
impress the fact upon others that "All
is not gold that glitters." In many
instances the actual coi-t of "peddling j
out" oroduce is much more man haa promi8ed to furniah farmers of the
din - erence in the selling price and that).. jeuw Allurag with eutd wheat

everything under the sun printed and
given general circulation indicates that
spite work is at the bottom of affairs.
If the Grand Jury lound anything

The Portland Telegram cries out In
anguish concerning "tne enormous
waste which marks every Legislative
session." If the Telegram would sub
mit an itemized statement we wonder
how much ot that "enormous wate"i
would show to have been expended in
Multnomah Countv. According lo the
metropolitan press any appropriation
for a "cow country" is enormous waste, j
but when Portland and vicinity re- i
ceivea an apportionment it is for a I
worthy object and a judicious expend-J
iture of the p. hlic funds, as witness
the effort for a bridge across the Col-
umbia at Vancouver.
A Portland paper demand the pass
age of an act requiring goat-meat to he
labeled as such. What's the matter
with labelling "bull beef," stags and
the like? A almilxr act might apply
to pork as well. The princely t etchers
tiiroi ghout the State would then be
compelled to let loose of some of their
ill-gotten gains, or rather could not
impose upon the poor customer who ia
now compelled to take his word aa to
the kind, sex, age, condition in life,
etc., of the meat o'Tered for aale.

executive, let his anger get the better

Perkins of muckraking him in the
columns of a Portalnd evening paper
and a few hot words brought on blows.
They were soon separated by members
