FRIEVDS, May I be friend to all the trees, To birds and blossoms and the bee s ; To thinps th.it creep, to things that hide Through all the teeming coun tryside; On terms with all the stars at night. With all the playful beams of light; In love with leafy dale and hills, And with the laughing moun tain rills; With summer skies and winter snows; With every kind of Breeze that blows; The wide sea and the stretch ing plain; The tempest and the falling rain. If I were thus what need had I To fear Death's solemn mystery That takes me from the world's alarms And lays me in earth's loving arms, John Kendrick Bangs In Har per's Weekly. Is still pending In the courts no de tectlve hns been employed by the county this spring. However, It scorns that much evidence against "Mind pig" operators has been gnth orej by individuals In the various towns or the county. This Is now being placed before the grand Jury and presumably many indictments will be returned. Whether or not the evidence will be sufficient to do the work remains to bo seen. Hut It Is doubtful If evidence gathered by Individuals, through more or less spasmodic efforts, will be as effective as that gathered by- regular detectives working under the direction of the regular officers of the law. liut whatever results niny be ob t. lined at this time, the efforts to ward enforcing the law are praise worthy. There has been too much lawlessness on the part of many drink dispensers and they need curbing. The prohibition law was enacted by the people of this county by an over whelming vote. While the law stands it should be enforced as closely as possible. A VALIABLE ASSET. In the lands under the Umatilla reservation Pendleton has an asset of the greatest value. At this time the reservation Is scarcely regarded as an asset because most of the land is still in the hands of the Indians and so cannot be Improved. But it will not be long until the al lottees will be allowed to sell their lands and the reservation will pass under white ownership. Much heir ship land has been sold during the past few years. When the reservation has entirely passed under white control a great transformation will occur. The res ervation contains soma of the finest land of the county and It Is land tha-t may be used for better purposes than the raising of wheat - Many thousands of acres of reser vation land may be brought under Ir rigation. Water from McKay creek and from the Umatilla may be used to convert the present wheat fields Into orchards and gardens. When Buch has been done the reservation will provide homes for thousands of white families and the Increased set tlement will add to Pendleton's great ness. At this time Pendleton's greatest need is of a thickly settled agricul tural community in its Immediate vl cinity. The increased settlement in the east end and the reclamation of the west end of the county help this city. So does the settling up of the Pilot Rock country, Pendleton !s the commercial center of Umatilla eountv and no Rprtlnn r,f iho pnnntv can go forward without benefiting '. Pendleton, directly or Indirectly. But Pendleton's hope lies more in the settlement of nearby lands than in the settlement of lands at a ' distance. The reservation Is a 'resource that will some day be -drawn upon. From a' Pendleton 1 tn ilr.r.lA .1 J 1 . . .

Last fall a detective, acting under 'the direction of the district attorney, procured evidence against many who were violating fthe prohibition law nd a flood of Indictments were re turned by the grand Jury. Something like 17000 In fines was paid Into the treasury of the county by those who were caught in the net The effect of the cnifade was wholesome. Pwlng 9 tkt J&fcuMtlM suit that IT IS OIK PAIU-OH. Though the people of the Pacific coast have positive opinions regard ing the exclusion of orientals it Is seldom that any sentiment upon the subject Is expressed by those who live east of the Rockies. However, a re cent iue of Senator LaFollette's magazine contained the following broad and liberal expression upon the subject. "The world Is wide. There is room in the orient for all the orientals. We have the right to insist that they stay there rather than come here. Not that they are inferior to us; for they are not. Not that we are better than they; for they are no doubt in some respects superior to us In good quali ties. There is no insult in asking them to stay in their own parlor instead of intruding into ours, "For, after all, the whole situation is one of intrusion. The Immigrants are not to blame; they are thrust forth by need and greed, and com mercialism and economic pressure. If they came because they liked us or our Institutions, it would be a differ ent matter. We like those who like us, ordinarily. Mutual esteem comes from mutual understanding and mu tual interests and Ideals. This con tinent Is our home. We have" Invited the multitude in so freely that some times and in some places It has seem ed doubtful whether we were to con tinue to be ourselves or become ab sorbed by the guests. But we have assimilated all the elements, largely because we had something of the common heritage to give them, and because they came In on account of a liking for us and desired to be of us. "It Is not so with the far orientals. They are thrust Into the body politic like a nail in wood. They seldom be come assimilated with us, or care to do so. We have a right, ethically, to keep the home-land for those with whom we can fraternize. Therefore, Japan and China and India, with so many millions that they might send here more people than we now pos sess without much reeling , must make up their minds not to become enraged or to feel Insulted if we take measures to keep them out recog nizing, all the time, that their home' land Is their family parlor, and that thev have lust as good reason for keeping us out as we have for ex cluding them." CnVELTY OF NOSE HAGS. For a moment put yourself in the position of a horse forced to feed out of some- of our nosebags. .

During the recent election a man warning along a quiet street was startled to see a house door suddenly opened, and a man fall bumping down to the sidewalk. Picking him up, the pedestrian asked what was the matter. "That's my club in there," said the human projectile. "It's a political club; there are nine Jones men and I'm for Smith. They threw me out. Hut don't worry. I'm going in and clean 'em all out. You stand here and count them." In he went, and sure enough In a minute the door burst open and o figure cleared the steps without touching. "One!" said the spectator holding up a finger. Hold on!" cried the prostrate one; don't begin to count yet. This is only me again!" Bellman. AT THE TABLE. He who eats in a hurry repents In an office.

Morris Kruetzer, a 66-year-old New Yorker, is suing his barber for am putating a forty-year growth of beard while the owner slept. Kruetzer climbed Into the chair and slipped into a nap. The barber ap plied the lawn mower and when he awoke the gentleman with the Tolstoi name found himself standing amidst as fine a bale of chin-fodder as ever adorned the face of a populist or gave dignity to a patriarch. So he Is suing for recovery of dam ages. To lose his wife were evil fortune Dut not irreparaoie, since women more or less grow on trees. But whiskers!
