Caged in the poet's lonely heart, Love's wastes unheard its tenderest tone; The soul that sings must dwell apart, Its inward melodies unknown. Deal gently with us, ye who read! Our largest hope is unful- filled. The promise still outshines the deed, The tower, but not the spire, we build. Our whitest pearl we never find; Our ripest fruit we never reach; The flowering moments of the mind Drop half their petals In our speech. These are my blossoms, if they wear One streak of morn or even- Ing glow, Accept them; but to me more fair The buds of song that never blow. Oliver Wendell Holmes. IS IT NOT TIME? Pendleton has had experience with hoth "wide open" saloons and with prohibition. Until a year ago this town was "wet". It was all too "wet". The saloonmen were in the saddle and for years they had ridden ruthlessly over the rights of others. Sc when the people of the county had a chance to strike a blow at the li quor interests they struck hard. It was a deserved blow. For the past year the pendulum has been at the other end. The county has had prohibition. But it too is far from a desirable sys tem. Under prohibition Pendleton has some ten or 12 "blind pigs," nu merous "bootleggers." while a big "mall order" liquor business has been carried in by outside concerns with the people of the city and county. During the past year Pendleton has been without 125,000 in revenue which In former years it collected from sa loon licenses. Not only has the city been without this revenue but the city has had no way of regulating the liquor traffic. The local liquor busi ness, being illegal, has been carried on surreptitiously. Those who have sold liquor have observed no blacklists save that they have refused to sell to parties whom they believe would tell. Being beyond the law they sell to minors, Indians or anyone else who has the price and at any time. Now It is time for a "third party" to enter the fight. The saloonmen have had their day and so has prohi bition. Neither side has presented a satisfactory solution of the liquor problem. The proper solution of the liquor problem as it exists In Umatilla coun ty and in the state of Oregon lies In rigid regulation. Not In regulation under a law drafted by saloonmen or by men affiliated with that business. But under a law drafted by disinter ested men who have nothing at heart save the best interests of the public at large. A law can be drafted that will place the liquor business exactly where it belongs under absolute control. Such a law would place saloons on a basis so different from that formerly In ex istence here that old saloon men would hardly know a saloon if they saw It. Those are the sort of saloons we should have. They are better than the old "dives" and they will be bet ter than the present "blind pigs" and "bootlegging" haunts. But If we are to have such a law the solid business men of the state must draft it and get behind the move to have it enacted. Such a law will not be drafted by the saloonmen nor by those who favor state prohibition. Since Pendleton has been through both the "wet" and "dry" stages the people of this elty are In a good po sition to know what sort of a law Is nee, lcil. Why not ilnift a law provid ing for rigid regulation of the liquor business and submit it to the people 01" the state next year. The hill could bi called the "Pendleton plan " The East Oreffonlan believes that If the right sort of a law is JrnPed and the people of the state are shown tbat those behind it are honest In their desire to solve the liquor problem for the best Interests of the state the bill will be adopted. U least it la high tlmo for some "conitrui tlve states manship" on the pan o( the business interests of the state. It Is time to put a stop to the radicalism of the saloonmen on one hand and of the prohibitionists on the other. What do you think about It? AFTER THE SM'GUAHUS. The Salem Statesman recently urly assailed the mossbaeklsm bit- of Marion county with the following: "Marion county Is to have no ex hibit at the Oregon State Fair, Marion, the premier county of the state, con taining the greatest hop center of the world, the finest prune district lo the United States, jne of the best peach countries in the state, and containing the cherry district and cherry city of the world. It is also worthy of note that with all her advantages she has shown about as little growth, and is as far behind in the settlement of the country, as any part of Western Ore gon, while the rapid advance of the Hood River country. Rogue river val ! y, Medford, etc., none of them with the advantages of Marion county, as well known. And it has been done by constant hammering, advertising ever lastingly." The roast Is timely. Salem and Marion county have neglected oppor tunities as have most of the other Willamette valley sections. That sec tion of the state has been dominated j by those who think more about the past than about the future, by those : who are too willing to "let well en I ough alone" nnd who sneer at those I who are embued with the spirit of 1 progress. But the fact that one of the princi pal daily papers of the valley assails the sluggards as the Statesman has done shows that a new spirit is abroad in the valley. A new generation Is coming to the front in the valley and it promises to wake things up. May it be able to do so. DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH. "Senator La Follette remarked re cently that, as compared with the great financial interests, the mass of the people are not likely to get their fr.lr share of our new-found prosper ity, says the San Francisco Examiner. "The remark is emphasized by the fact that it has been shown by un questionable statistics that the cost of the staples of an ordinary household is higher now than it has been for forty years, with the exception of the year 1907. "However, there can be little doubt tbat the exhilarating era upon which we are entering will diffuse its advan tages more or less through the whole community. "The point to be observed Is that the lion's share Is likely to go to the great financiers. The danger Is that the people's share will be as that of a ewe lamb altogether dispropor tionate." That is the point exactly. It is not that the rank and file of the people will not be prosperous, but that the prosperity will be Inequitably distrib uted. The wealth of the world is in equitably distributed now and it Is a bad state of affairs. Society Is best off when a healthy balance is main tained, when there are neither too many paupers nor too many million aires. ' This Is the idea that Is held by those who endorse the Roosevelt-Plnchot conservation movement. The plan Is to have the natural resources of the country developed under conditions that will Insure something like a fair distribution of the benefits, if the conservation policy Is not continued by the federal government the vari ous trusts will In time completely con trol the coal lands, timber lands and water powers of the country. They will then charge what they please for the things they have until the people assert their rights and enact laws regulating charges. But before such a law, or such a constitutional amend ment could be passed, a few people would have made millions or perhaps billions of dollars that should have been divided among all the people. Cook & Perry (Cook and Peary) have discovered the north pole. Pen dieton has been made famous again. Balllnger has been at Beverly. Is Plnchot's time next. It It Is now time for all good citizens to register for the city election. THE LOST PIP. He was lost! not a shade of a doubt of that. For he never barked at a slinking cat. But stood In the square where the wind blew raw Willi drooping ear und a trembling paw. And a mournful look in his pleading eye And I plaintiff sniff at the pnsser-ny. That lu gged as plain us a tongue eo"ul;l sue, "O, mister! please, may I follow you'.'" lorn, wee waif of a tawny brown A '.l ift In the roar of a heedless town. I'll, the saddest of sights In the world of sin is a little lost pup with Ills tall tucked In! Well. lie won my heart (for I set great store Or. my own red Mute who Is here no more) ; So I whistled clear and he tottered up. And who so glad as that small lost pup? Now he shares iny board nnd he owns my bed And lie fairly shouts when he hears my tread. Then if things go wrong as they some times do. And the world is cold and I'm feeling blue, He asserts his right to assuage my woes With a warm, red tongue and a nice cold nose, And silky head on my arm or knee. And a paw as soft as a paw can be. When we roam the woods for a league about, He's full of pranks as a school let out; For he romps and frisks like a three months' colt, And he runs me down like a thunder bolt, Oh, the blithest of sights In the world so fair Is a gay little pup with his tall In the air.
