It's the honest grip
Makes a fellow t:ike heart again;
It's the word of cheer
From a friend sincere
Makes him feel life's not In
When the way is dark
And the luckless barque
Is drifting from safety's strand,
Why, God bless the men
And the women who then
Hold to us a helping hand.
When you're out of luck
And you're out of pluck
And the . fight doesn't seem
What will give you heart
To do your part?
Whv, a hand clasp and a smile;
So when all Is black
And we've lost the track
In a world we can't understand,
Then God bless the friend
Who is there to lend
A smile and a helping hand.
THE REASON FOR IT.
Next spring thousands of people
from the middle states will come
westward to secure new homes In the
states along the Pacific. Conditions
are favorable for a heavy colonist
movement in the spring. The coun
try has recovered from the panic and
people in the middle states may now
dispose of their property in that sec
tion, which they could not do this
fall. The fair at Seattle will also
bring many thousands to the western
coast. Many of these will be seek
To those who will be after new lo
cations Umatilla county has much to
offer. This county has approximately
5C.000 acres of newly irrigated land
cpen for settlement. It has some
400,000 acres of other tillable land
capable of supporting several times
the number of people now living up
on It. V."
But Umatilla county will not get its
share of the new people if those now
here sit supinely by and allow other
sections of the northwest to reap all
the benefit from the migratory' move
ment. It is going to take work to popu
late this county. It will take much
the same kind of work that U requir
ed to build up a mercantile business
advertising and proper attention to
prospective buyers. The amount of
effort put forward by the people of
this city and county is going to Iarge-I.-
determine the number of new set
tlers who will locate here.
Th East Oregonian believes that
the most effective work may be done
through an organization such as th3
f'ornrner'ial association. A properly
r-nuipp'-d association, with publicity
I urr-au attached and a manager capa
ble of handling the work in all its
Oepartments. will be able to do much
in b'-half of the county next spring
un.l summer. It will be the "busy
sas'in' and that is; the time to do
This is why the association should
be rejuvenated now. Within the next
few months the association should be
gotten into Hhape for the hardest
v.ork fver done in its history. The
quart, 14 should be Improved so as to
make th".m In keeping with the rest
o' the town. The association should
b"1 equipped for work.
At this time a committee is engag
ed In soliciting money with which to
remodel the association rooms and
accomplish the other improvements
loeded. If you want to forward the
development and settlement of Uma
tilla county help the movement.
SPOUT IX Vlssoritl.
Any man with a fair constitution, a
i ason.ibly clear conscience, a hun
ter's license, a field dog and a shot
tun may taste of the Ideal sport this
month in Jlinsourl, wys the St. Louis
I'ost-Dlspatch. We say the Ideal
sport advisedly, for it seems freely
conceded by the great majority ot
Xlmrods that when all Is said and
done there Is no other to approach
No gamier birds animate the sport
man's world than the quail of Mis-
si url. and never have they been more
plentiful in this jurisdiction. "Sends
o' birds" Is the unanimous report
ftom the Interior, and those who have
penetrated It fetch back feathery
1 roof of the truth. Added to the
plentifulness of game, the conditions
under foot have been nearly perfect,
while those overhead have latterly
been beyond compare. Adding the
ploturesquenesa of this broken and
rolling country and Its colorful aspect
at this period, and there Is a sum of
conditions that could not be over
painted in the Ximrod's dream of an
earthly heaven. Some Thomas Gray
might fittingly turn an elegy upon It.
Mar the poem as you will, profane
it when the dog, in a moment of pre
occupation, stumbles prematurely on
the covey, when n shot misses a clean
striilght-away that nobody ought to
have missed, when the birds flee the
open to the difficult, timber, when
barbs from the fence pierce the flesh,
and the burs beset the spirit, when
the legs grow weary with plodding
through tangled corn tows, and night
brings aches and exhaustion still the
joem of a November day's quail
hunting in Missouri Is a poem that
must write Itself indelibly in the pages
of the Ximrod's memory.
SAX FRANCISCO'S STRUGGLE.
Seldom does a city have such a task
a that which confronts San Fratv
cisco in eradicating the Ruef-Schmltz
gang and its influence. Info every
corner of the municipality penetrat
ed the evils they nurtured and this Is
what makes the graft prosecutions so
Speaking of the city's determina
tion to become clean and the diffi
culties involved the San Francisco
Star recently said
"There is corruption in San Fran
cisco, but the city is not corrupt; and
even though It be said that San Fran
cisco is corrupt, it cannot be said that
she is "corrupt and contented." For
the corruption that exists within her.
San Francisco Is discontented. Not
cr.iy is there discontent, but it Is .t
wholesome discontent, and with It is
a determination to become clean.
"We do not need, nor will we ac
cept, the mingled scorn and prayers
of those who say that San Francisco
is one of the most corrupt cities. There
is much housecleaning to be done,
end In the way of the housecleaners
are many obstacles, most of them
elected by men called, In our com
mercialized vocabulary, "Business
"Yet what could these men do, In
the way of placing obstacles In the
way of civic disinfection, were it not
for the "reptile press," maintained by
pirates of Industry? The sources of
public information are poisoned, the
mouth of the press is for the most
"Nevertheless, San Francisco's
heart is right and the great mass of
the people of the city are right and
This Is true. At heart the people
of San Francisco, or a majority of
them at least, are honest and true.
They do not believe in corruption and
hey will not stand for it continuous

everywhere, and the city by the Gol-
en Gate will again hold up Its head
nd smile as it did In the days of old.

A "MERITED REBUKE."
The Tribune has frequently been
criticised for Its lack of ability a a
newspaper. This criticism Is merited.
It is a well known fact that the most
of the local news Is taken from the
Hast Oregonian and hashed over.
When the Tribune reads in the other
paper that some one Is intending to
make a trip to southen Oregon, It
should at least look up the person
and find out the particulars instead
of copying the article verbatim. Pi

Pave Leahy has located a cow In
Wichita that goes on a spree. The
animal was tied to an apple tree for
half a day. Lying around in the
grass were a lot of windfallen ap
ples, and most of them were overripe.
She proceeded to consume all of the
apples that the length of the rope
and her neck would permit. In the
afternoon the owner of the eow. a
Mr. Skinner, went to the orchifrd to
bring her home, and found her lying
on the ground, apparently dead to
the world. Stie was breathing heav
ily mid snoring. Persistent Jabs In
the ribs failed to arouse her. So n
