J. FiiroMi Takes Ilnrrhtt Glumx at Kiwtwii Oregon Situation Also Sxaks of nanklnfj Low. The Oregon Pnlly Journal pub lishes the following interview from TV. J. Furnish on the congressional nomination In this district. The Jour nal says: T. T. deer's hopes to step Into the shoes of Congressman Ellis do not appear so roseate to TV. J. Furnish of Pendleton, as they do to Mr. Oeer, who has transplanted himself In Umatilla county from Marlon and Is about to begin a campaign for the congressional nomination. 1 Mr. Furnish was In town today on the way to California on a buslnVss trip, and while here talked of things generally In the quiet, cautious man ner peculiarly his way. "You have another embryonic con gressman up In your town?" It was said. Mr. Furnish looked Inquisitive and Interested. "T. T. Geer," he was reminded. "Oh, yes," he said. "What Is that going to do to Mr. Ellis?" Mr. Furnish, was asked. "It is pretty early to say," was the response. "Oeer, of course, has some friends up about Union, where he once liv ed," was hazzarded. "Ellis has lots of friends there, and all over eastern Oregon," Mr. Furnish said quickly. "It looks as though the battle would have to be fought In Portland." was the next guess. "I have heard people say," said Mr. Furnish, "that Geer could not get the vote here he did at the last election. I don't know whether he can beat Ellis or not. Xobody does." he said as he turned away from pol itics. "It's too early yet and then you can't tell, anyway." Sixnik of Hanking. Mr. Furnish also discussed the banking laws and conditions nere. ue said that bad bankers ought to be brought up short when they violate the law. and that the laws should be enforced. "I'ankers ought to obey the law In every thing," snld Mr. Furnish. And they should run their banks In the proper manner. When they do vi olate the law they ought to be prose cuted vigorously, and if guilty, should he nnnlshed In no uncertain manner. This ought to be done for the pro tection of the business as well as ror the safety of the public. T dlit not like the banking law passed by the last session of the leg islature. I came down nere a cou- r.lo of times and worked with the framers of the law and said then as I now hold, that a banking law should allow the bankers room i" handle their business, but at the same time it should be simple, clear ly defined and straight-out. Then u it tu violated the banker who violates U should be subjected to the vigorous application of Its penalties. "There Is the same trouim; wi-" the federal banking law. There they find things not according to me ia and nothing Is done about It until something happens, then the law 's Invoked. It ought to be applied be fore anything happens and men u great damage would be .done to tne Public . . "What ought to toe done " good laws and then enforce them at all times, both as regards the bank ers and the people. Then there would seldom be any trouble." Mr Furnish eaves lonigni v-"' Ifornla on a short business trip. PHffl PLEADS FOB BOYS Pendleton, Ore., Jan. 8. (Editor East Oregonlan.) The splendid edi torial in Monday's East Oregonian, "Plain talk about the boys," hits the mark squarely. It Is example and sugestlon. The boy tries always to Imitate the man. I am rejoiced at the coming of the Juvenile court and I am sure that In the past Pendleton has not taken care of the boys. Is there not a law against selling cigarettes and tobacco to minors as well as liquor? I think there 1b, and hope to se? the officers of the Juve nile court make some enquiries about the places where boys are allowed to loaf and smoke, where tobacco Is old. I have had a year's experience In a large city in the rescue work of boys, . and heard one of the probation of- COFFEE Why do we drink so much poor coffee? Because good coffee is so good. Your grocer returni your miner i( you doo't likt Scbillinf ' Best: we pay him. fleers make this statement: "The boy almost Invariably starts down ward with cigarettes; in almost every case of delinquency the youth ful offender had acquired the tobac co habit at an early age." Aside from the physical Injury to the growing body and brain, the moral Injury was even greater. To begin, the boy In the first place learns the manly (?) art of smoking and finds that he has been able to deceive his parents to smoke as often as he desires without their being aware of it, so he argues: "I can also do other "sporty stunts" or evade the law, having been able to deceive so successfully."" Look any night at the line-up on the curbing as the audience comes out of the Oregon theater. Notice the pale faces and count the boys each with a cigarette, pipe or cigar and the pitiful swager, and count the boys not under 21, but under 17. Portland arrests all minors who smoke cigarettes; whole states have abolished them. How about the man (so called) who allows young boys to loaf and smoke In their places? Some man Is to blame for every boy who goes wrong and the Juvenile court should see to the enforcement of the laws made to protect our boys from "men" of this calibre. Go through the pool and billiard Darlors.'' bowline allevs. daces where tobacco Is sold and boys are allow ed to congregate to smoke and swear any evening and see what you will see and hear. The saloon Is not the only and most deadly pitfall for the boys. I recently saw a boy not over 8 years old, smAking on the bridge. Two men passed and laughed amusedly to see how the poor baby handled his "smoke" like a veteran; how the lit tle fellow swelled tvlth pride to be so noticed. The child only tried to Imitate men's vices and examples thaf were set before him. The saloon Is not the starting place for boys; It begins on the street. Stamp out the cigarettes. Make It a misdemeanor for a boy to smoke under age. Look after the poor little fellows who are fastening this baneful habit upon themselves. Stop It and yo,u will find very little If any crime among the boys, as has been proven In other towns and cities and It is high time Pendleton got Into line to look after and take caro of her boys, CITIZEN.

SHEEPMEN ARE RIGHT. Laws Should Compel Manufacturers to Brand Goods. The Rural Spirit says of the sheep mon efforts to have shoddy goods properly labelled on the markets: , The wool growers are rigm -questing the passage of an act by congress requiring manufacturers of goods and clothing to brand their products. "Every tub should stand on Its own bottom." Every thing should be sold under Its true name and if it has not sufficient merit to sustain it, let It fall. We have our pure food and meat Inspection laws, as we should have, for the protection of the public and It Is right and necessary that we should have a law protecting us against being swindled by shoddy and cotton counterfeits of woolen goods. It Is all right to make and sell oleo margarine on Its merits under Its true name, but it is not right that It should be sold as the product of the cow. It Is also all right to make shoddy and cotton goods and sell them Tor what they are and what they are worth, but it Is not all right to sell them for woolen goods. This Is an imposition alike upon the producer of wool and the wearer of woolen fabrics, or what arc supposed to be such. Few people are able to tell the im itation from the real In clothing any Recklnff a Hurled Treasure. Thnt there Is a largo amount of hidden treasure burled somewhere on the Isaac Watson ranch near Alto, In Columbia county. Is evidenced by a statement of E. F. Barker this afternoon, when he stated that Isaac Watson had been seen to dig up a cartful of gold there. Iiiaac Watson was for many years a rancher at Alto, owning about 600 ocres of land. He died suddenly last June. The deepest mystery has sur rounded the past life of the man, be fore ho became known In this part of the country. He had no known relatives, and It was practically Im possible to verify positively Just where the man came from. He has lived for many years on his ranch at Alto. Among other mysterious phases of the life of Watson was the mariner In which he kept his money. Al though he has been very successful as a farmer, he had very little money deposited In the bnnks. He was a man that spent little money, and, al though ho was comfortably settled on his ranch, he was not living In a manner that would necessitate the spending of his vast income. Still, when he died he had practi cally nothing outside of what was In sight on his ranch. Walla Walla Bulletin. FEW CONTAGIOl'S DISEASES. Pendleton Has Splendid Heeonl for Health Since Last Spring.
