REPUBLICAN POLICIES GOOD.
So far aa political policies can produce good times, the Repub
lican party ha3 done it.
For ten years the country has had bumper good times for la
borer and producer.
Wages of labor have been high and prices of all farm products
have averaged high.
There should be no thought by any intelligent person of
putting our country on a free trade basis.
We seriously believe we have the greatest country in the world
We need a great, steady'brain at the head of this nation of
our hundred million people.
SHALL I SEND MY CHILDREN TO COLLEGE?
This is one of the most important questions in many families.
For a career in one of the so-called learned professions the
four-year course may be valuable.
But if your son or daughter expects to work for a living a
two-year course is better.
They will be started earlier upon the serious duties of life,
and be more apt to succeed.
By all means consider the home college first.
If you must send your child away, send to a good one.
CRIME IS ON THE INCREASE.
Since Sheriff Collier has been in office Albert Green was
killed. He was drunk. Oliver Snyder was killed. He was
killed by drunks. A Greek was killed at Dixie. Sweek was
killed, and he was killed by a drunk. Barne3 was killed
when both he and his slayer were drinking. Crowly was
killed. He was drunk and was killed by a man who was
drunk. There are five men, Elmer Shields, Earl Shields,
Bert Green, Ben Hinton and Joe Cascday in the penitentiary
for life, and they were drunk when they killed Snyder.
These men were either heads of families, fathers, husbands
or brothers, and those upon whom the sorrow or shame fell
represent more than one hundred of Grant county's citizens.

The Eagle does not state whether these crimes were commit.
ted In dry precincts or wet.
One thing is certain, serious crimes and lawlessness are on
the increase in Oregon.
WHY NOT TEACH AGRICULTURE?
It is probably useless to remind an agricultural college that
its principal business is to teach agriculture.
It is a thankless task to try toget any public institution out of
a rut it has once fallen into by mistake.
Here is a bulletin advertising a college to train professional
nipn, especially business managers.
The commercial course is held up as being superior to any oth
er business college in the state to train business men.
The school holds itself out especially for the training of high
cliws office employes, railroad and bank bookkeeping, etc.
The four great departments of country life are agriculture,
horticulture, dairying and livestock of all kinds.
If these departments were covered completely and good hands
turned out for those purposes the state would be better served
There are too ninny of our young people being turned away
from the industrial walks of life and directed into soft-handed
There is very little excuse for maintaining at state expense a
l)ig commercial department at a state farmers' school.
$100 FOR A SLOGAN.
Kenneth Myers, secretary of the New Westminster Progres
sive Association, offers $100 for the best slogan for that city.
The contest closes Septemlwr 12, and there is a second prize
of $r0, out of which the bright city up north gets publicity.
Study the map, read the statistical reports, and then try your
hand on a Rlogan for advertising purposes.
We suggest the passage from the Psalms: "How beautiful
upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings glad tidings
of good things."
No use sending any bulletins on dry farming to the Willam
Eastern senators are sending us speeches on sugar tariff. Just
the same there is no excuse for a tariff to protect a few Louisi
ana cane sugar manufacturers. The sugnr tax is the biggest tax
an American family pays.
These lines from Pope's Essay on Man, appropose to Governor
"Vice is a monster of such hideous mein,
That to he hated needs but to be seen ;
Yet soon too often, familiar with her face,
We first endure, then, pity then embrace."

BOARD OF TRADE
CAS (JET YOU ROOMS
The clerical force of the Hoard of
Trade office has been busy much of
the time for the past few days listing
rooms of private citizens for the ben
efit of state fair visitors. The rush
during the fair Is usually so large that
the hotels, boarding and rooming
houses are unable to take care of them
all. Many hundred rooms have been
offered, and strangers in the city are
advised that they can secure rooms by
calling at the Board of Trade office,
any time during business hours, and
as the crowds grow larger and the
demand Increases, the offices will be
kept open until late In the evening.
Mr. Montelth, who makes his first
appearance tonight at the state fair

rlo band, is one of the greatest bari
