That Olney cemetery, Pendleton's burying ground, should be Improved and kept In better condition than In the past is the sentiment of every cltixen who mentions the subject and the East Orcgonlan Is glad to pub lish the following communication re celved this morning upon the mat ter of cemetery improvement. Th time to begin the Improvements Is early In the spring and not In the middle of summer after the vegeta tion Is dead and the streams dried up. I!y concerted action on the part of the traternal organizations, clubs, associations and huslnesa men of the city, Olney cemetery can be made one of tho most beautiful spota In the county. It Is well located and with Just a little expenditure for wa ter could be made attractive and pleasant the year through. The following communication from a well known Pendleton citizen was received this morning: Pendleton, Jan. 28, 1908. (To the Editor.) Pendleton has the reputa - tlon of being a progressive town. It la It Is known as a wealthy town. That, too, Is true. Its substantlaj business blocks, modern homes, pav ed streets and other features of met ropolitan life appeal to the stranger within her gates. But there is one thing In which Pendleton Is sadly lacking and that Is proper respect for the dead. Olney cemetery was laid out al most 17 years ago and what Is It to day? Simply the stretch of barren hillside that it was before It was ever devoted to cemetery purposes. I know of nothing more cheerless, disheartening and disgraceful than the condition of this cemetery on a summer day. With the exception of a few graves where the relatives of those who have passed away have arranged with the sexton to haul water to them the conditions are anything but creditpble. That the cemetery con tains the remains of loved ones from almost every family that has been In the city for any length of time. Somewhere or other I am Informed a fund of $200 lies idle which was long since directed .to be used In bringing water Into this cemetery. This may not be enough, but If the Commercial association, the Wo men's clubs and the various . other associations and societies that exist In the city will take the proper In terest a sufficient fond can be speed ily raised to bring water Into the cemetery and with water only a lit tle time will pass until trees, grass and flowers will redeem and beau tify this cheerless spot of ground. I do not believe there Is anyone living here who has a loved one laid away In Olney cemetery who will not do his share In. the matter. If we are so ready and willing when It comes to celebrations and street fairs,' why not devote a little of our time, en- DHINK ROOSEVELT TOAST IN SILENCE. New York, Jan. 28. J. P.

When the toast to Roosevelt was called everybody stood up as usual and drank and then sat down in silence. ergy and money to do something that should have been dftne long ago? Why not Issue a call for a mass meeting? Who will be the first in the list of associations, clubs, lodges or societies to take the Initiative In this matter? With prompt action water can be put Into this cemetery so that next summer will transform Its appear ance. Let us do away with conditions that should never have existed and put water Into Ood's acre to the end that those who wish may be In a po sltion to beautify the last resting places of those who have passed away.

That the completion of the Uma tilla Irrigation project and the grow ing Importance of Hermtston will perhaps prevent tho construction ot the Echo-Coyote cut-off on the O. R. & N., is now the' belief ot prominent O. R. & N. officials. Although it has been reported at Echo that preliminary steps are now being taken toward the construction of the cut-off, yet officials say that nothing has been done with the mat ter for months and that no orders for the beginning of work have been received. It is the belief of the officials that had Hermlston not been founded and the Umatilla Irrigation project un dertaken that the cut-off would have been completed long ago, but as the company will have to maintain a line to Hermlston now under any circum stances it is not their belief that the main line will be constructed down the Umatilla river to Coyote as was Intended. Since the Hermlston line will have to be kept In operation It Is now thought that the main line will be maintained over the present route by way of Hermlston. It is a well known fac that $1,000, 000 was appropriated for the Coyote Echo cut-off two years ago and the Harrlman system had planned to construct it, but the beginning of work on the Umatilla Irrigation pro- JecUand the rapid growth of buslneKS at Hermlston has had tho effect of changing the plans. There Is a mjld rivalry between tho towns of Echo and Hermlston and It Is said that the reports of the begin ning of work on the cut-off which would have a detrimental effect on Hermlston, have originated in thi Echo newspaper office.

I morles. Those who have land in this coun ty but have escaped assessment through the fact that their deeds were not recorded will now "get theirs." Through an arrangement Just made with the county court. J. T. William son, of La Grande, has undertakes to list all deeded lands within the county upon which taxes are not be- ing paid. In this county, as in aJl others, . there is said to be more or less land for which the deeds have never been placed upon record. When such is the case the assessors have no means of listing the property unless the owners willingly give In their proper ty which they seldom do In sucj cases. Only recently Mr. Williamson per formed a similar service for Unioa county and found about 3000 acres of deeded land on which the owners had been paying no. taxes, escaping through the fact that their deeds were not recorded. Under the law the county may col--Iect five years' back taxes upon any property which the owners have been withholding from assessment. Under the terms of the deal with Mr. Wil liamson the county will pay him the amount derived from the first year's tax upon ffii property discovered by him. Regarding Timber I-and. The county court has also been considering the advisability of grad ing the timber land of the county eo as to assess it more in accordance with the actual value. At present al! such land is assessed alike, whereas It differs greatly in value. In order to get at the value of the respective tracts it would be necessary for the rnnnty to have it "cruised." But according to one of the com missioners. It Is not likely the court will do this at present owing to the fact that most of the Umatilla coun ty timber is remote from transporta tion lines and so is not sufficiently marketable to Justify cruising.

The torpe do boat flotilla was warmly received here today. "There Is another point in connec tion with the establishment of ar morles that should bring out many votes for the bill. It is this. When, the state erects its own armories they will be fitted out ..with club room where the men may congregate ct evenings or otherwise. This will ' save many from seeking amusement on the streets or in saloons. Nation al guard companies are always good In a social way and they furnish clean and manly recreation for those who belong. With suitable armories this feature will be even stronger than now." Should the armory appropriation be upheld, $25,000 will be available each year for four years and the state will commence at once twbulld t armories for the companies outside of Portland. The bill was held nti by a referendum petition filed ty some members of the state grange.. However, it has Mnce been lenmpri that the opposition to the bill was not endorsed by the grange at large, though sufficient sisners to the peti tion were secured to hold the bill for a vote of tlit feople.
