Every right of way deed filed west

Walla Traction company or any othe
electric line company, is a cause for
rejoicing In Pendleton.
The 1 deeds filed yesterday after
non prove beyond any doubt that
vilhin a short time this city will be
connected with the east end of the
county by an electric line. Then will
srome that same high development

The route of the line will be one
continual farm and orchard. Land
values will go beyond the fondest
dreams of the owners and the vanish--ul
settlements, drawn out of Umatilla

Pendleton should now be engaged
in securing right of way toward

Pendleton Tribune and T. T. Oeer are
.among those who cannot become
reconciled to the people's rule. They
?sire the old way, the cart-before-Lhe-horse
method, the "public be

government. And in every way pos

RAILROAD AND RIVER.
It Is frequently asserted, and with
excellent foundation, that the Prus-
ian system of Inland waterway Im
provements a work in which no sec
tion of the country Is so vitally Inter
ested as the great northwest Is the
bit and the most comprehensive In nil
Europe, but the Inland waterway
system of France Is, none the less, a
n.ost admirable object lesson. That
France should enter on the expendi
ture of more than one billion of dollars
on Inland waterway improvement is
The French are the most economi
cal, and the richest of all peoples of
Europe. They saw In the Improved
waterway a means of communication
between producer and consumer at
once cheap, safe and continuous, and
they appreciated the fact that the hos
tility between river and rail was a
hostility without substantial basis.
Imbued with the soundness of that
view the committee, of the French
senate, having the question before !t,
thus reported to the senate In 1903:
"It Is futile to deny that traction U
kss costly by water than by rail and
. here transportation by water and by
.all are both available they comple
ment and complete each other, the one
transporting heavy materials, the low
cc st of w hich is an indlspenslblc con
dition to the vitality of industries
which aliment. In their turn, the traf
fic of the railway."
The report, concurred In by both
branches of the legislative body of
the French republic, resulted In the
perfecting of the system of improve
ment of the artificial and the natural
inland waterways of France and every
branch of trade and commerce Is feel
ing the Inestimable benefit of the wis
dom of the French legislative body
In the completion of a system which
is now a part of the fixed policy of
the government of the country.
Of the traffic on the French water
ways the latest available figures show
that while It reached 32.438,701 tons
in 1905, It Increased to 33,977.340 tons
In 1906. Coal was carried by water
from Cette to Toulouse at 77 cents per
ton, while the railway charges between
the same points was 84 cents. The
rate for wheat, on the Rhone between
Lyons and Marseilles, In 1906 was
$1.03 per ton, while by rail between
the same points, approximately the
same distance, it was J2.6S per ton.
Great though the difference In rates.
between the two modes of transpor
tation in France unquestionably is,'
the difference In the United States Is
stiil greater with the difficulty, in
this county, that the dlferetice applies
enly to the section enjoying the bene
fit of an Improved ' waterway and
they are few while France reaps the
benefit of an Inland waterway system
rf improvements, such as the Nation
al Rivers and Harbors Congress ad
vocates, based on a fixed policy on
e'efinite lines, with annual appropri
ations sufficient ' for the work and
with the work continuously prosecut
ed. There is no reason why every sec
tion of the United States should not
enjoy the benefits of such a system.
Certainly no section would profit by
the system as the great northwest
would profit by it.
France is Illustrating the immeasur
able benefits coming from the adop
tion and the enforcement, of an en
lightened and definite system with
river and rail supplementing and
ccrnpleting each other as means of
transportation without hostility be
tween them, but with both sharing In
the benefits that come to every Inter
est in the entire country.
OREGON'S PRISON PAPER.
The East Oregonlan enjoys each
month the visit of "Lend a Hand," a
monthly publication Issued by the
convicts of the Oregon state peniten
tiary. This little magazine is one or
the most attractive and interesting
that comes to the East Oregonian's
desk, not for its literary standards,
nor for the morbid curiosity which a
prison paper may excite, but for the
cheerful spirit of optimism and hope
fulness, the spirit of higher Ideals
and nobler sentiments, which per
vade Its columns.
Every sentence breathes a hope that
the convict may become a better man;
every page pleads with the public to
give him a chance to live right; every
thought pleads for charity and toler
ance and good will toward the unfor
tunates who, through passion, weak
ness, heredity or hatred have become
Don't sit down In silent woe;
Swear you'll get another show;
Luck will stop and smile on you,
If you'll stand a knock or two;
Don't give up and don't get blue;
Start at something. Stir something up;
Upset Melancholy's cup;
Fortune loves the busy bee,
Plum chock-full of energy;
Face the rough-house cheerily;
Stagnant waters do not flow;
Microbes In the slow blood grow;
Microbes of the wretched blues,
Where despair discouraged brews;
Shake the moss roots from your shoes;
Here's your creed and here's your tip;
Practice that stiff upper lip;
Here's a prophecy for you; j
If you'll only up and DO,
You'll triumphantly go through;

PROBLEM OF THE INDIVIDUAL.
The problem of the Individual Is to
develop himself for the good of the
Whole. What good does It do me to
be well cultured, well dressed, well
housed, with a beautiful garden about
mo, if my neighbors tear up my flow
ers, throw mud and rocks at my house
an! my clothes, and meet my high
and mighty mental stores with ribald
ry? Of myself I can do nothing, bo
nothing. Only by spreading my cul
ture and my prosperity to those about
me can I by any possible chance be
allowed to enjoy them. I and others
like me can bund ourselves as a com
munity and teach others to appreciate
and emulate what we appreciate. The
Incorrigible!! we can compel to let us
Only by combining for the best good
of all can we save ourselves or our
possessions from destruction by those
who don't yet know enough to appre
ciate or combine.
This means that Individual rights
and state lights are merely lights to
serve the whole.
It means progress through combi
nation. It means salvation throtujh combi
nation. It means that Individual selfishness
and state selfishness eventuate alike
in self-destruction for the good of
the Whole. Elizabeth Towna In July

As jolly a face as could be found,

to the American public by Mme

Reader for June. A legend beneath
the likeness of this famous singer of
the past credits her with having sung
at the Interment of the remains of

She Is still living at the age of 87,
