A SONG OF SEASON'S.
There's joy, my dear, in the
youth o' the year,
When the hearts o' the bright
And the skies are blue as the
eyes o' you
And the blooms blow over the
There's joy, my dear, for the
world is fair
And Love is the sweetest blos
There's Joy my dear, in the
noon o' the year,
When the harvest hints of
And the soft sun streams with
its gleams and dreams
On your beautiful hair un
rolled. There's joy, my dear, for the
world is fair,
And Love is the blossom that's
There's Joy, my dear, in the
gray o' the year.
When the snows are drifting
And the cold winds cry to the
And the last rose weeps.
There's Joy, my dear, for the
world Is fair
While your love like a lily is

ONLY ONE HARRIMAN.
When the president of the New
Ycrk stock exchange declared no one
man can succeed Harriman but that
many men will he needed to carry on
the work of the fallen monarch he
ptobably prophesied well.
It is doubtful if any one man can
succeed Harriman. It Is certain there
will never be another man who will
accomplish the miracles he did In rail
way circles. Harriman was an Alex
ander and he all but conquered the
railway world. But such men appear
But there is another reason why It
Is improbable that any one else will
be able to do what Harriman did.
The railway business Is being placed
upon a different basis from what It
vtm during Harriman's busiest days.
Then it was private business and It
was conducted for the private benefit
of the people owning the roads. The
law regarding mergers was not used,
If it was upon the statute books.
Now it is being gradually recogniz
ed that the railroad business Is a semi
public affair. The government Is
taking a hand In the management of
roads and In the fixing of freight
schedule. In the future It will do far
more along this line than at present.
Government regulation of railroads
lias hardly started. In the effort to
regulate rates the public may receive
set backs. A hard blow was dealt re
cently when Judges Grosscup and
Kohlstat ruled that the interstate
commerce commission does not have
rate fixing powers. But that decision
cannot stand. If It is upheld by the
si'preme court the country will de
mand that a new and more compre
hensive law be passed giving the com
mission ample powers along the line
of rate regulation.
This will come about because the
railroad business is too important to
be left wholly in private hands. If
the railroad business were considered
strictly private business then a single
combination of capitalists could se
cure control of all the roads in the
country and they would hold the
country at their mercy. It was Harri
man's dream to bring about such a
merger and it was partly because he
held this ambition that Theodore
Roosevelt and other public spirited
men began to advise governmental
regulation and had the Hepburn law
passed, though the law was not a
they wanted It.
For tne man to succeed Harriman
as the managing head of his great
yitem may easily be possible. There
are many able railway operators In
tho Hnrrhnan employ. But for any
man to rival the work he did will be
Impossible. The opportunities for
such work no longer exist. We will
never have another Harrlman.
IT is PIKE WORK,
Within the past few weeks several
local business houses have been pro
vided with new store fronts and as a
result the appearance of Main street
has been greatly Improved. When
some work that is now underway is
completed Main street will look far
better than it has in the past..
In no other way may property
owners do more for the betterment
of the city for the amount of ex
pense Involved than by making just
such Improvements as ihls. Xor
could they do work that woild be
more appreciated by tenants.
Pendleton has always held the rep
utation of being a "good appearing"
town. Mam street is always a scene
of life and Pendleton shop windows
always bear evidence of the fact that
the local stores are up-to-date. It is
a remark frequently heard from
strangers that the Pendleton stores
are more metropolitan in appearance
than those in other small cities of the
northwest. This is a reputation worth
having and worth sustaining. Prop-
I erty owners should cheerfully assist
the merchants in sustaining the town's

DTJTX OF WATEH.
An important law suit now pending
from the Echo country has for its
Chief feature the question of the duty
of water how much water is needed
for the successful raising of crops, ty
is much the same question that was
railed by the famous Peacock mill
company suit from the east end of
the county. It is a question that Is
i not easy to determine.
True irrigation exnerts mav tell verv
closely how much water Is needed by
analyzing the soil, considering the
natural rainfall and other elements

even tney cannot ten exactly as to
the duty of water for the reason that
their deductions are necessarily based
to an extent on observations taken In
In one way only may. we finj out
accurately how much water is need
ec1 for successful Irrigation in the
west end of the county. That Is by
practical experience covering a num
ber of years. Even then it is to be
anticipated that practical men will dif
fei somewhat in their opinions for It
is hardly to be expected that any two
men will look upon the matter in
identically the same light.
Just now the world is hearing much
about arctic explorations. Two men
have already reached the north pole;
so they say, and they are quarrelling
as to which is the greater hero. An
other party is now enroute for the
frozen north intending to press on be
yond the pole in hopes of finding a
But in an economic sense exploring
the polar region is unprofitable work.
The arctic region Is a frozen waste
and it cannot be utilized. The ex
ploits of Cook and Peary cannot add
to the material welfare of mankind
and for this reason the work of Peary
and of Cook is of far less Importance
than is the work of such men as Edi
son and Burbank.
Exploring the arctic Is merely a
proposition of sport. While of course
some scientific discoveries are made
on the different expeditions the ex
peditions are never undertaken for
the mere purpose of making scientific
observations. They are undertaken
by men who hope to gain fame
through accomplishing something
that has never been accomplished
previously. If it were not for this
there would be no Cook-Peary con
troversy. The city election is drawing near.
I' any changes are to be made in the
charter or if initiatory measures are
to be proposed it is time they were
