For the past month the sheepmen of Oregon have been conducting i coyote-killing campaign, for the pur pose, of ridding the state of this pest which Is so destructive of" flocks;, to day the East Oregonian received a forcible communication from a farm er living in the interior of Oregon, protesting against the slaughter of coyotes for the reason that they kill squirrels and rabbits and thus pro tect the farmer's crops. The timber corporations want to be allowed to use the forests on the mountains to make profits for their lumbering industries; the farmer wants to save the forests for future use. The water power corporation wajits to be allowed to locate upon and monopolize all the available water power for speculative purposes; the irrigator wants the water sources of the state saved for future uses in rlfvplnplnrr the arid lands. The railroad company wants to block the opening of rivers because th's will diminish the traffic of the railriads; the farmer wants the rivers opened to reduce freight rates. The bonanza farmer wants to han dle 2000 acres of wheat land; the country demands that a farmer be located upon every half section at least, to insure more bona fide homes, keep schools alive and insure the prosperity of the towns and EUrround ing country. The farmer and stockman demand high prices for cattle, wheat and wool, to insure them Just profits from their industries and more moderate expenses in maintaining a borne. And so on down the list of vital Questions. These enigmas of civilization have always existed and will always exidt, perhaps. All of these various con fending factors are necessary parts of civilization. TheT Interests differ :and yet their co-operation Is Irrevoc jible. They must meet and mingle end join hands in the forward march. In the continuous warfare in which -the king. Self, rules supreme, these enigmas, these puzzling issues will al ways be "bones of contention" fn the "doubtful balance of rights and wrongs." FIGHTING THE PANIC. Fortunately Pendleton has not been forced to take any drastic or extreme measures to meet the hard times fol lowing the recent money panic, but therp are cities in the country, and gjlenty of them, which are today struggling with panic conditions, al though tin. flurry ii said to have passed over long ago. Along th Union Pacific where shop Mid "feral ns fw-' -have been cut down, and many employes have thus been thrown out of employment, con ditions are serious and especially Is this so at large railroad town like Cheyenne, North Platte, Ogden and ethers of that class. The Cheyenne Tribune In an edi torial gives an Insight Into the f art-caching effects of the panic In that city. It urges landlords to reduce rent to those tenants whose Jobs have teen destroyed or whose Incomes have been reduced by shorter hours and to make good Its principles, the Tribune cuts the price of the paper In half for patrons of this kind. It further urges merchants and dealers of all kinds to reduce prices, to sell at cost, to give credit any thing, to relieve the large numbers of people thrown out of work there by Harrlman's reduction of force or ders. The situation Is serious there and in other large railroad centers along the Union Pacific. Pendleton and all of Oregon, In fact, Is particularly fortunate that there have been no bad effects from the panic. There has been no call for drastio measures to alleviate the sufferings or burdens of laborers In any part of the state and for this the people of Oregon are, and should be, sincerely grateful. BETTER WATER LAWS, The perennial question of better water laws for Oregon will be con spicuous In the coming campaign auJ in the next legislative session and to enable the voters of,1 the state to understand the situation as it is in this state today. State Engineer John H. Lewis has been requested by Gov ernor Chamberlain to prepare a pamphlet setting forth present laws, conditions In the Irrigated sections and the need for better water laws. That pamphlet Is now out and can be had by addressing the state en gineer and the East Oregonian hopes that every voter in the state secures a copy and reads It carefully In or der to understand the urgent need of more modern water laws In this state. Mr. Lewis has gone Into the sub ject carefully and has presented every logical reason In the world why a bet ter water code should be adopted In Oregon. The development of the state actually depends upon the im provement of water laws now in force. The next session of the leg islature must meet this question fair ly and squarely and nobody must shirk their' responsibility. Summing up the situation in a nut shell In this valuable publication, Mr. Lewis says of the Irrigated area of Oregon and of the need of better laws to insure continued develop ment: There Is approximately 440,000 acres of Irrigated land in Oregon, the irrigation systems for which are of the simplest kind, and cost about $2,100,000. Over 50 per cent of this area is estimated to be reclaimed by natural overflow of streams, with but little artificial construction. During the first nine months of 1907, the state land board, under the provisions of the Carey act, entered Into contract for the reclamation of 183,834 acres of land, at a cost to fu ture settlers of $4,692,700. The United States reclamation service has under construction in Oregon reclamation works which will cost, when com pleted, about $4,000,000, and irrigate T65.000 acres of land. About 45,000 acres will be reclaimed In the near future by private Irrigation works now under construction, at an est! mated cost of $90,000. Within a few years, therefore, the irrigated area of the state will be doubled, the Irrigation systems for which will cost nearly five times as much per acre as the. early systems The more expensive systems still re main for the future. As the amount of money to be invested In an irriga t'on project Increases, the more cer tain and definite must be the title to land and the necessary water supply to induce capital to invest. If as surance of clear title to sufficient water supply cannot be had in ad vance, capital will not Invest in the project. In order to make a success of the projects now under way, settlers will have to be found to purchase nearly 400,000 acres of irrigated land. This means that we must bring Into the state within the next few. years 33,000 settlers, assuming a family of five up on each 60 acres of irrigated land. These settlers will doubtless inquire into the conditions of land and water titles. It is becoming generally known that some states and countries have better water laws than others, and to facilitate the settlement of Irrigated lands, and to encourage new enter prises, Oregon should not hesitate longer to place ypon her statute books the very best laws governing the use of water that human wisdom can devise. If Editor Geer of the Pendleton Tri bune, would spend as much time In writing poetry as he does In explain ing his little Jabs at Congressman El lis, he might have a reputat on equal to that of Joaquin Miller. Or If he would devote this precious time to rustling dollars In tho business man aK'enient of the Tribune, lie would soon be so rich that a little, measly, Insignificant, bothersome, luart-rend-Irg congressional nom nation woulJ not bring wakeful hours to his p'low nor aching muscles to his aim. from overmuch handshaking. FOR THE NEW YEAR. New thoughts, if old ones sear and scar, New dreams, when old ones wither ed He, New Joys, where old ones vanished are, New hopes, should old onus droop and die, New hearts that throb with warmth o' noon, New songs that bring a sweeter tune, So may we know them you and I. New courage for the tasks to be. New lessons from the days gone by, New faith, new love, new charity. New splendor in the blue of sky, New deeds, and better than the old, New tales by fairer fortune told. So may we hear them you and I. New days, when, diligent, we build New castles of enduring good. New deeds by strength and purpose willed. New hopefulness, new brotherhood, New trust that bides and never ends. New blessings showered on old friends. New faith In heaven, new gratitude. James A. Foley In The Hlue Book. THE TELL-TALE Till MB. Th thumb which bends back easily personifies great adaptability, ex travagance, brilliancy and versatility. The owner of such a thumb Is at home In changing circumstances In fact, Is home anywhere Is generally sympathetic, sentimental and. ' as a rule, improvident. They are easily reached through their hearts, and it Is difficult for them to pass a beggar on the street without contributing a mite. The owner of a stiff thumb Is prac tical, matter of fact, economical, ex acting and weighs everything care fully. He Is the possessor of a strong will and is stubbornly determined. He Is cautious, reserved and seldom Impressionable or cares to Invite con fidence. . ' r Such a person has a great power to accumulate by plodding. The owner of a stiff thumb cannot make his money as easily, nor has he the power of making as much, as the more limber thumbed Individual, but what he makes he is generally able to hold. He is no extremist, and enjoys a quiet life, seldom cares to flaunt, is not erratic, and prefers to stick to one thing.. Pittsburg Dispatch.
