Selected. ate In 1906. he adopted an attituae which was highly offensive to some of the older senators. A movement was started to haze him. When he began to speak spectators quietly left the chamber and Mr. La Follette found himself usually addressing empty chairs. He took his revenge In his Chautauqua lectures by sharply criticising the records of senators who were Identified with "the interests." Naturally "La Follette did not gain any popularity by this course ami some of the members who felt tho sting of La Follete's words believed the present time opportune to visit upon him he weight of tne displeas ure of his colleagues.

THE BEST BAXKIXG LAW. LEGEND OF THE WALLA WALLA ELLIS AGAINST THE HELD. The coming home of Congressman Ellis to register that he may become a candidate for re-election to con gress nest year, is the forerunner of what promises to be one of the warm est congressional contests ever wit nessed in the eastern Oregon district The long residence of Congressman Ellis in this district, his faithful ser vices In the Interest of eastern Ore gon, his intimate knowledge of con ditions in this nart of the state, and his wide acquaintance in every coun ty make him a most formidable can didate and the East Oregonian Is go ing to predict his re-election by a large plurality next June. The prestige which Congressman Ellis enjoys by reason of having served in congress for six years be fore, Is one of the strongest argu ments in his favor. A new man would have to build up the acquaint ance and standing which Congress rnan Ellis now enjoys and to change to a new man, simply because a new .....nt th lull would be the height of folly, when Congressman Ellis is in position to secure irnme ro.niN if results are within reach of anybody's efforts. Portland is said to be after the con gressional nomination with a strong line-up. but Portland cannot afford to do this. She now has everything else in the district and eastern Ore gon is entitled to this office, and Congressman Ellis being In the har ness with his plans for the Better ment of this district already laid, Is entitled to the position. The people cannot 'afford to change now. Oklahoma, the newest of the states, Is plunging at once Into politics. Hav ing adopted the best constitution In the United States, she Is now pre pared to set the country an example In matters of legislation. While they have been discussing the guarantee of bank deposits In other places, her legislature has gone to work and a system has been adopt ed which, coming into operation on February 17, will give to the depos itors the benefit, of a guaranty fund The following is the press dispatch announcing the Inauguration of the system: "The new banking law of Oklaho ma, whereby Is provided a guaranty fund for the protection of depositors In Insolvent banks, will become oper ative February 17. 1908. Its makers believe It will make impossible a run on an individual bank or permit a money panic in the state. Each state bank is required to pay to the state banking board a sum equal to one per cent of Its dally average deposits. Whenever this sum is depleted it shall be increased by further assess ments. "When a bank falls, the state bank examiner steps in and forthwith pays the depositors from the guaranty funds held by the banking board. These payments become a first Hen on the assets of the defunct bank. National banks that wish to avail themselves of the benefits of the law may do so upon a plan agreed upon by the banking board, the bank commissioner and the comptroller of the currency of the United States." Good for Oklahoma! The guaran tee fund is good; an absolute guar antee would be better and Involve no real risk to the government, for the state would have the assets of all the banks to secure It. It will be Inter esting to watch the experiment, and if it Is a success, as it doubtless will be it will be copied by other states. Oklahoma Is wise In admitting na tional .banks to share in the benefits of the plan. We shall sometime come to a guarantee of national banks, but until that time It Is only fair that the national banks established In a state shall share In the benefits of the state guaranty fund. Joel Shoemaker writes the follow ing pretty Indian legend of the Walla Walla for the January number of the Westerner of Seattle. He says: The Walla Walla valley Is one of the oldest settled districts of the northwest. It was the. first olace where a missionary point was estab lished and a fort erected. There tno soldiers of two nations camped and claimed the country. It was the fort from which Marcus Whitman made his famous historical ride across the continent to save the Oregon to the United States. For manv vears it was the central point for meeting of numerous Indi an tribes. There they smoked the pipes of peace and held their coun cils of war. There they danced and made merry with the scalps of white men. And around that valley are woven many Interesting legends of life among the redmen. The stories are related In the old tepees of vet erans fho have braved the battles of the plains and are prepared to go to the happy hunting grounds. One of the legends of Walla Aaua concerns the origin of the name. In nlrlt everv one enjoyed perfect hap- plness. But a dark cloud came over h niuce. A warrior from one or tne mountain tribes sought the nana oi h maiden In marriage. She reius- ed to accept him. He drew a knife from his belt and killed the pretty o" . . . When the blood of the girl met the water, the lake began to disap nonr The sun came down hot and licked up the waters. Then all was desert. The Indians moved away and dared not return because a bad spirit v,a mipn nossesslon of the country Then the spirit of the maiden came back She saw the dissolution from ,h inn. of the Blue mountains. -rw. h. nat and wept for her peo nle The tears ran down the moun- i....Qu Bn,! formed rivers and creeks. The waters passed through the great desert and caused vegeta- . : , irrniv fll?illn. One day one of the remaining dians returned and looked upon the land. They saw it was good and watered by numerous streams. Then a medicine man passed his hand over the scene and announced m-" future it should be called the land of many waters.

A FORTUNE IN HAY. PIMMHNG LA FOLLETTE. The mannftr In which the antedi inrian mossbacks who control the United .States senate are punishing Senator La Follette for his progres sive tendencies is disgusting . and hameful. Because La Follette refUBed to be gat down upon by the old fossils of. the senate, because he insisted In representing the people of his state on the floor of the nenate and because he has p-rsNtently refused to engage In any of the brazen grafting pro grams of that body, the Wisconsin senator and the people of Wisconsin are given an affront which should cause general indignation throughout the country. The Kari.s.is City Star, in noticing the punishment administered to Sen ator La Follette, says: Senator Robert 'M. La Follette of Wisconsin, must pay a penalty for his attacks onjthe corporate affiliations of his colleagues, In lectures at Chau tauquas in' varous sections of the country last summer. He has been Ignored entirely In the makeup of all the Important committees. Whn La Follette entered the sen- Senator Tillman's resolution to investigate the Issuance of federal liquor licenses In states and smaller divisions where the liquor traffic Is prohibited by local laws, ought to lead to the abolition of that prac tice, says the Kansas City Star. While this license is merely a tax re ceipt, yet to collect taxes on an un lawful trade Is to ally the federal government In sympathy with local lawbreakers who gain from it their chief ability to thwart the will of the people of a commonwealth or com munity. A logical comity between the national and the state or local governments should withdraw all federal recognition from the liquor traffic in a prohibition locality. And this policy, If embodied In the law, would not only discontinue federal licenses in such places, but would also prevent the Invasion of prohibi tion territory by liquor shipped lor sale from another state.

This is an average ot considerably more than $100 to the acre, the aggregate value or me i" crops being about $60,000. Mr. Bohanon has been a resiucni. of Yakima county less i:mn months, coming here eaily last reo ruary from Raymond, Pacific -county, on the coast, where he had en gaged In the lumber mill business. He is glad he came to the Yakima country. In November last Mr. Bahanon ob tained the light and water franchise fnr the town of Toppensh, which has a population of more than 1000, and the plant will soon arrive, air. bu hanon is ready to Install It as soon as the poles arrive. From mill man to Yakima farmer and from xamma farmer to a municipal magnate of consequence all In less than one year Is achieving fortune and distinction by rapid transit, found legitimately In the Yakima district and once in a while bv chance in Wall street. Mr. Bohatron Is justly proud or. nis success as a Yakima farmer; and, if he succeeds as well with his munici pal franchise as he did with his first experience In farming in tnis ricn noil, he will reaulre only a short jump to the presidency of a bank a Dosltlon of more than usual emi nence in the Yakima country tnis year.
