Three against one was never fair since the world be gan, Yet who so craven but fate will dare? The Fates are but women a man's a man! How can they turn from your smile and frown To mete you evil itV briefen your span Look In their eyes, then, and laugh them down: The Fates are but women a man's a man! Woman against woman is bit ter and fell Three against one, how they whisper and plan. Limitless evil more cruel than Hell! But the Fates are women a ttian's a man. Elizabeth Waddell. v v V THE TRUTH is WANTED. What Pendleton needs to know about a gravity water system and about the proposition of an electric plant In connection therewith Is the truth. It needs expert information furnished by engineers who are dis interested. The city can best obtain this Information from engineers em ployed by the city. It is not safe to rely upon data gathered by the North western Gas & Electric company, though that data may be entirely ac curate. If Pendleton can obtain water di rect from the mountains, say from the north fork of the Umatilla, then the city should do so. We would then have better water than at present and more of it. But of course the -city cannot get water from the north fork unless the project Is feasible from a financial as well as from an engineering standpoint. It would be necessary for the new system to pay for itself, just as the present water system Is paying for itself, or else some new method of raising revenue would have to be devised. It would hardly do to pay for a new water system by increased taxation. Now Mr. Strain believes that the city could Install an electric plant In connection with a gravity system and that the electric plant would help pay for the new water system. He thinks he has good reason for his belief and at the meeting tomorrow night he may be able to give the taxpayers some valuable Information upon the sub ject. On the other hand men who re present the sentiments of the electric company may present some figures wholly at variance with those In the possession of Mr. Strain. It is probable however that more Information should be secured before any definite action is taken. If this should prove to be the case then the city authorities should be instructed to have the subject Investigated In all 1U details. While the question is at issue the whole matter should be gone over thoroughly and lir;ht shed upon every phase of the subject. What we need is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth as to the feasi bility of a mountain water system and a municipal electric plant. After the necessary Information has been ob tained then the question can be de cided intelligently. THE FALL FASHIONS. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch is re garded as an able newspaper, but It is certainly grouchy upon certain mat ter. It recently had the following up on the subject of women's dress: Clothing will continue to be popular. Some will wear more than they did , in the turn many one reason lor This being that they could not wear leas without being arrested. Ultra-fashionable women will wear more than one garment, and It Is rumored that few will even go back to petticoats. One radical change will be that It will now be possible to tell at a glance whether a woman Is going from you or coming toward you. The new hata will not entirely con oral the fact', but will disclose enough of the features at least to Indicate that the wearer is a human being and not a clothing-store dummy. Women who use brooches and "beauty pins" to fasten their collars In the back, will, as heretofore, al vavs so fasten the pin that the design will bo upside down. BRYAN'S POPn.AKlTY. At Spokane Saturday William J. Bryan was greeted by a crowd 50 per cent greater than that which listened to President Taft and the great Ne braskan was given a welcome much warmer than that accorded the presi dent. This information has been pub lished hy associated press papers that .'bitterly opposed Bryan during' the last presidential campaign. The report states that despite the soldiery and other spectacular features attending the Taft reception in Spokane fhe Bryan demonstration was greater and more enthusiastic than that given the chief executive. It is doubtful if the country ever had another possessing the personal lability an.l brilliancy of Brynn or one who had a stronger hold on the affec tions of the common people. It should be a source of satisfaction to Bryan to know tliat although ne can not gain the presidency he is never theless held In very high esteem by his fellow-countrymn. MAKING BEADY. Much "dope" Is now being circu lated regarding the proposed central bank. "Financial experts" are filling magazines with communications up on the subject in hopes of creating a sentiment in favor of the idea. The publicity bureau being operated in be half of the central bank follows mein ods very similar to those used by the men who favor a ship subsidy. But up to this time little If any details as to the central bank siheme have been disclosed. The public is first being "made ready" for the dose whatever It may be. It Is easily possible the country will refuse to swallow the i medicine for there is much suspicion as to the real motives of the doctors. some people contend that the water taen from the Umatilla at this point 13 as pure as that taken up in the mountains. But according to such logic the water of the Umatilla would bo best for drinking purposes at the point where it flows into the Columbia. It will be hard to induce householders to believe In such a theory. Next fall the Presbyterian synod will meet in this city. Pendleton al ready has considerable of a reputation as a convention town and It is sus taining the reputation. ' Optimism Is necessary in town build ing. Before anything can be done people must first think it can be done. A big thresher factory would be a good running mate for the Pendleton woolen mill. A BO VIC THE TIMBER LINE Below, the winding path lies broad and green, With cool, tree-shaded spaces flecked with light; Chirpings of birds deep-hidden from the sight, Whose fledgling-laden nests the branches screen. And murmuring brooks and morning air serene, Speak pleasant days and gentle, soft delight. But now the way grows narrow, and a blight The thinning trees reveal; the rug gen mien Of the bare mountain side looms sharp in view, Daring the lofty-souled to brave its steep. There, where the keen-eyed eagles vigil keep, And ice-glazed trails reflect the heaven's blue, The worn and eager climber sees unfurled A vision of Cod's meaning of tho world. Pall Mall Magazine. THE KEY. Thrc is peach within the th't, And music in the rhyme, That they who work with faith and plan Will win out every time. I know not hok It comes, I know not where It lies, I only know that faith is self and work WW win a prize. For effort builds the tho't, And tho't nnd faith the man,. And they who win the things they wish, Are they who think they can. "Ask, thou shalt receive, And knock, 'twill open be," As every thing you will or wish Is here awaiting ye. The universe Is large, The unlv-rsc s free, But they who gain her treasure vault Must be themselves the key. C. S. TERPEN INO. Pendleton. Ore., Sept. 26, -1000. Sweet Charily. "Couldn't you give something from out your abundance to help a poor woman ?" "Why. certainly T'll contribute an old sheath t"own and some puffs." Louisville Courier-Journal. BRITISH INCOME TAX. Consul-General John L. Griffiths, of London, advises that since the re port by Special Agent Peoner on the Income tax laws of the United King- J dom some Important changes have taken place. These ure outlined by Mr. Griffiths: There has been an Increase In the Income tax from the rate of Is. (24 1-3 cents) on the pound ($4.86) sterling (which would be at the rate of 5 per cent- to Is. 2d. (28 1-3 cents). The Increased Income tax became operative on April 6. In addition to the tax of Is, 2d. there Is charged in respect to the Income of any individ ual, the total of which from all sources exceeds 6000 pounds ($24, 332), nn additional duty of Income tax, designated as a supertax, at the rate of 12 cents for every pound ster ling of the amount by which the to tal income exceeds 3000 pounds J14,f99). If any individual subject to an In come tax claims nnd proves in the manner prescribed by the income-tax acts that his total Income from all sources, although exceeding 160 pounds ($7781, does not exceed 500 pounds ($2433), and thnt he has a child or children liv.ng under the age of 16 years at the commencement of the year for which the income tax is charged, he Is entitled in respect of every such child to relief from in come tax equal to the amount of said tax upon 10 pounds ($48). The ex pression "child" includes a stepchild hut does not Include an illegitimate child. No abatement, exemption or relief under the income tax acts, which de pends wholly or partially upon the total income of an Individual from all sources, shall be granted unless the person claiming the relief is resi dent in the United Kingdom. An ex ception is made in this particular as to persons employed In the services of the crown abroad, is the income tax commissioners are satisfied that the person If not so employed would be a resident in the United King dom. The Income tax Is not payable as to the Interest or dividend of any se curities of a foreign state or a British possession which is payable in the United Kingdom, where it is shown to the satisfaction of the commission ers that the erson owning the securi ties and entitled to the interest or div idends Is not resident In the United j Kingdom. It is made tho duty of every person chargeable with a supertax to give notice that ho Is chargeable to the special commissioners before Sep tember 30 in the year for which the supertax is chargeable. Penalties are prescribed if a person falls to make i any return or o give any notice re quired under the provisions of the In come tax ni ts. The penalty is fixed j at 50 pounds ($243) and after Judg meat has beqn given for that penalty i a further penalty of 50 pounds ($2431 prescribed for every day for which the failure continues. If any person tails to make the return required by law, or to give any notice which may I be stipulated, or If the return made is not satisfactory to the commis sioners, they may make an assess ment of the upertax according to the best of their judgment.
