This Golden Day.
Out of the tomb of night a
day has risen. Be not anxious;
this day Is all your own. Do
not hurry, for in time it is like
all other days; neither delay,
for now Is passing. Early turn
your face to the dawn and let
its fresh beams bathe away all
stains of night; then, should the
noon be dark with storms, your
smile will still wear the rose
tints of the morning. This new
day can be saved only by spend
ing It; therefore, In Its care be
enduring; in its confusion be pa
tient; in Its sorrow be trustful;
in its trial be noble; in its peril
be heroic. Step softly among
human hearts, and leave so
much of kindness along life's
pathway that gladness shall
spring up, bearing tribute In
the cool eventide. Delmer Eu
gene Croft In Magazlns of Mys
teries. LET VS OBEY THE ORDINANCES.
The East Oregonian deplores the
necessity of calling the attention of
the public to occasional actions of the
' city council, and It is at a loss to
know why city, ordinances are not as
sacredly observed as any other laws;
by members of the council.
In the matter of letting the city
printing the council asked for bids
on the printing, advertising that the
printing would be let to the lowest
bidder, and In direct violation of the
word and spirit of the bid, It let the
bid to the highest bidder, the Tribune
securing the contract at six cents per
Inch, while the East Oregonian bid
but five cents. This action of the
council was not business like, was not
honest, was not In accordance with
the first principles of business veraci
ty, and Increased the cost of the city
printing by 25 per cent, as the Trib
une immediately began padding out
the legal notices by printing them In
large type, as shown repeatedly by
the East Oregonian at the time.
In the more recent matter of letting
the contract for street sprinkling, the
council Ignored the bids of four re
sponsible citizens and let the contract
to the highest bidder, and a member
of the city council, thus violating
again the word and spirit of the city
ordinances, and wilfully Increasing
the cost of the street sprinkling by
1480 for the eight months in which
sprinkling is done.
Because of the agitation of the
East Oregonian the contract was nob
given to Wells, the highest bidder, as
it had been agreed to do, But the en
tire matter was called off and new
bids were asked for, these bids to be
opened next Tuesday, June 12. If the
city council was acting in good faith,
was dealing honestly. In accordance
with the city ordinances, why did It
call off the street sprinkling bids and
ask for new bids after the matter
had been shown up In Its true light?
The East Oregonian does not delight
in this unpleasant task of calling pub
lic attention to such actions, but as
long as the city council acts in this
manner, this paper will be forced to
make Its actions public.
It is no less a crime for the city
council to violate its oath of office
than it would be for the district
Judge, the district attorney, the sher
Iff, clerk, treasurer or any other of
ficial to violate his oath. City ordi
nances are just as sacred as the laws
of the state and violations of them by
city officials is a grave matter.
A HINT TO RAILROADS.
Alarmed at the agitation in favor
of Government control of rates, the
railroad Interests of the country have
planned to establish two bureaus from
which they will conduct a national
campaign of education.
Campaigns of education are always
to be encouraged, but the distribution
of statistics Is not the best way to
overwhelm the movement m favor of
Instead of establishing bureaus.
suppose the railroads were to agree
not to violate the Interstate Com
merce law, not to give rebates, not to
tolerate discriminations, to make their
rates reasonable on the basis of the
actual Investment, to remedy the
abuses of private terminals, private
car lines In short, to give all ship
pers and all sections fair treatment.
The campaign In behalf of Govern
ment rate-making would collapse Im
mediately. Then the railroads would be free
to undertake another great work ot
education the suppression of the
socialistic propaganda. This In turn
would be a comparatively simple
task. About all the railroads need
do is to get out of politics, stop brlb
Ing Legislatures, stop trying to send
corporation lawyers to the United
States Senate and stop trying to put
railway attorneys on the bench. The
agitation In favor of Government
ownership of railroads would cease
If the railroads could induce the
other public-service corporations not
to form corrupt alliances with politi
cal bosses, not to buy Aldermen and
Leglslatators and public officials; if
they could persuade these corpora
tions to give the public decent service,
to carry out their contracts fairly
with the people, and to be satisfied
with honest returns on an honest In
vestment if this were done there
would be little left of the campaign lr.
favor of public ownership of any
Could the railroad Interests per
form a more useful work of educa
lion? That kind of education would
make for the permanency of rcpul)
llcan Institutions, as well as for the
permanency of railway Investment.

There is no joking about the fact

MEXICAN MINES TO CLOSE.
An American who has) been mln
lng for 20 years in Mexico, Is author
ity for the statement that the aaop
tlon of the gold standard by that
government will result In the closing
down of many mines In Mexico. It
could scarcely result otherwise, as all
who have studied the effect of the
single standard In other countries, es
pecially the United States, were pre
pared to expect Not only will it
close the mines, but it will prove to
be a blight on all manufacturing and
commercial enterprises. The single
gold standard benefits no one except
the world's great money loaners and
la the ruination of everyone else.
