THE COMING YEAR
What will the coming year bring
forth? That all depends upon our
own attitude toward tho problems
which it will present. But this
much can bo said: It will bo bet
ter year than 1922. Why is It pos
slblo to niako such a prediction?
Because of 1922.
Tho yoar that is passing now was
not tho most discouraging of tho
years rocontly encountored, but it
was a revealing period, especially
for tho peoplo of tho Snake IUvor
Valley. Certainly it demonstrated
to tho satisfaction of most people
that speculative farming is not tho
sound practice for this section, and
that stability must bo acheivod
through tho production of diversi
fied crops. It was an expensive les
son to loam, but wo believe that
oven at tho price paid will have boon
worth whllo If It brings about tho
elimination of one crop bids for suc
cess. But tho local situation Is not the
only rauso. for advancing optimistic
forecasts for tho year to come. Wo
have not boon nlono in experiencing
adverse times. Tho agricultural
sections of tho ontlro country have
boon similarly affected and as the
result tho nation's attention has
been focused of lato upon agricul
tural problems, leaders in banking
and industry, in political and govern
mental circles have taken note of
tho condition of tho nation's basic
iudustry and have arrived at a re
alization that such conditions can
not continuo and the nation as a
wholo prosper. Somo of tho great
est minds in America today are ad
dressing their thought to solving tho
farmers' problems. Undoubtedly
this moans n bottor day and a
brighter year ahead.
Two romedies have appeared
prominent In tho proposed trentmont
of tho farmer's problem, an exten
sion of long time credit for crop pro
duction nt lowor interest rates, arid
tho perfection of mnchlnory for mar
keting crops so that tho ranchers
will secure a groator roturn for their
crops. Tho latter is tho more im
portant of tho two, the most noedod
and tho most promising of results.
Important as theso two proposals

Slow as has beon tho progress to
ward diversified farming In tho sec
tion, It Is coming. Farmers In this
soctton who camo to town for vege
tables, and thus paid tribute- to Jap

dlBtnnt future thoy will bo num
bered with tho dodo and tho dino
saur. When tho dny comes that tho
farmer provldos tho bulk of his own
larder ho will bo woll on tho. high
road to lndopondonco and tho ontlro
community will bo fortified for tho

Tho Idaho commission in its study
has applied sound reasoning In tts
findings, the result of which will be
beneficial, not to the public alone,
but to the public utilities companies
Tho commission has said that tho
public cannot bo expected to pay per
potual tribute for the mistakes of
promoters and managers of public
utilities; nor upon enhanced organ
ization exponscs; nor upon property
purchased for extensions not now
in uso for tho people.
Had tho decision been otherwise
a premium would have been placed
upon careless management and in
efficiency, which ultimately would
havo workod to tho positive harm
of tho public utility companies. In
holding that tho company can not
expect to earn a full return upon its
irrigation equipment tho commission
holds it to its contract with the peo
plo and says in effect that a promise
and contract made by a utility com
pany is to bo kept and Is as binding
upon it as It is upon tho Individual
rancher or1 ditch company. To have
held otherwiso would havo been
In handing down this decision the
Idaho commission has done the peo
plo of Idaho and of Eastern Oregon
a real service, and tho Idaho Pow
er company too. The theory of pub
lic regulation of public utilities is
given added strength' and confidence
In public commissions is enhanced.
This victory for the public was
duo to tho united efforts of tho peo
plo of this section, and to the offi
cers of tho Malheur County Farm
Buroau, the Owyhee Ditch company,
tho Shoestring Ditch company and
tho County Agent who aided and di
rected tho bringing of nil these to
gether in tho Southern Idaho Power
Usors' association. Without this
leadership tho results attained would
not have beon secured.
