Will aome St. Helena girl be true
to aome forlorn loving soldier boy?
We hope ao, for thore la a fellow, who
writing from Taconm, Washington,

"Does the girl I am corresponding

The letter la signed by M. M.

In St. Helens who hna won the heart
of thla soldier boy, may answer his
questions, and, possibly, might as
sure him of her undying love and tell
him, that, ao far aa ahe Is concerned,
he had bolter stay out here Instead of
returning to the east coost.
The letter, togother with a request
for an answer was referred to the
socloty editor of the Mist, but that
person disclaimed any knowledge of
the affair. At any rate. It Is up to

Many Believe That the Portland
Paper Haa an Ax to Grind
Every lasue of the Portland Tele
gram contains an article written by
one Henry M. Hmzen. The articles
relate to the conduct of the apruce
production part of tho U. 8. army.
Hcnzen is a good writer and has
placed bia atory bo.'ore the public in
a readable manner. Tho tirat taai
articles, which dealt with the short
comings oi Ulsquo and his officers,
people were In accord vith Haazen's
expose or ideaa. The last several
articles he has recently written do
not, however, appeal to the public,
for It appears, as many readers of
the Mist have stated, that a syatema
tic campaign waa being carried on
to do way with the eight-hour day
system and establish a ten-hour day.
Whether or not the owners of the
Telegram have told Hanzen to write
the articles, the Mist cannot say, but
from the opinion expressed In many
quarters. It is apparent that the Tele
gram has some ax to grind and ba
choaen Hanzon aa the ax grinder.
There are many in St. Helena who
wonder why, if the Telegram had
auch startling disclosures, that the
readers of the paper were not given
the benefit of such information while
the nefarious practices which the
Telegram intimates, were going on.
Many friends of the Telegram do
cot approve of the "post-mortem"
examination and are guessing as to
the real motive of that paper In pub
lishing the news relative to the air
'plane production some eight months
after they had the Information in
hand. The Telegram should explain.
At their meeting In Seattle today
the National Editorial association
will chose officers for the ensuing
year. The term of Guv TT Hnrrtv

doubtedly, be elected president. E.
E. Brodie of Ores-on Cltv la ntlA nf rha
candidates for vice president and he
n&s a strong following and at the
meeting In Seattle tonight it is
thought that he will poll a large
vote. The eastern members of the
association are atrone for H. wtlba
while the western members are sup
porting uroaie. rne editor of the
Mist left last night for Seattle, where
he will try to help to elect a western
man for this Important position.
The saw mill being constructed by
the Island Lumber Company will be
gin operation on or before October

stallation of machinery Is not yet
complete. Work is progressing on
the big dock which is to connect the
mill with the loadln? dock on the
Willamette Slough and It la expected
that thla portion of the work will bo
completed In the near future. H. F.
McCormlck, manager of the concern,
states that he hopes to have the plant
In operation by October 1st.
