There are many people in this city I who do not realize the importance of remodeling the Commercial associa tion and of getting it into shape to do effective work in behalf of the town and county. Many men imagine the present r.iovemnt is merely one to fit up the club rooms so that they will be more comfortable for the members who fre- them. They are altogether li'g to the charge. Yet they are eager to be parties to the greatest political outrage ever perpetrated in the slate of Oregon. Such papers belong in the Journalistic scrap heap towards which some of them are now head-ii.f?. Don't forgot the library. If you do you will shortly be reminded of the subject because the ladles f the city are In charge. Their movement Is one that deserves the cordial support of all. Give them your support.

Xow i the time for the people of Pendleton to a??ert themselves Xow i the time for them to get the woolen mill. Xow is the time for them to say that the mill shall not be taken away, but shall be retained here and built into a greater Industry. Are they going to do It? Or will the people of the town, through In difference, through indolence or through fear, allow the movement in behalf of the mill to go the roid of failure. There should be but one answer to this query. The mill is worth saving. It is a good industry and It can be made a much better one. It can be made into an industry that will era p'.oy 1.0 or 200 people; tn industry that wil; send its products all over the country and will make the name of Pendleton a household word. It should be retained and operated. And the mill may be secured eas i!y. It requires but $23,000 to finance the proposition. Half of this amount has already been pledged. The rest should be secured as easily as one can blink an eye. At this time two or three millions of dollars are on deposit In the Pendleton banks. There are scores of men In the town who ar.-e able to back the mill single handed If they but wish to do so. It Is a safe prop osition, financially speaking. With these men and all this money surely Pendleton will win. The town will win the mill will be saved if the business men and property owners of the city have the spirit they have displayed In the past. But if the mill is to be secured, now is the time to get It. The subject is f.ne that has been discussed for weeks. Xow is the time for final action. J. P. Wilbur is here to run the mill If local people will but back the en terprise. If he does not get the Pen d'eton mill he will operate the mill at I'nion or a new mill at Walla Walla.

This fall one of the best football l-arris of the northwest, last .--arn's coast champions, went down In bitter defeat, because the player felt too Huie of victory. Hut over-confidence Is dangerous to. Individual-1 and to communities as well as to athletic teams. The lndl vidu.il who is utterly confident of success in any line, Is liable to fail. The man who Is somewhat fearful ard who g-ts "right up on his toes" l.i the one who wins. Pendleton, as a town, Is too confi dent. This Is a good town and al ways has U-en. The people of this section have made money. The town looks prosperous. Its people are prosperous. There are hundreds of rren In this town who are wealthy, judged by the common standard.
