KEEP YOUR SHIRT ON EFOKE any real develop ments have occurred to iustifv a break and be fore the purposes of the ad ministration have been made known a lot of our people and a lot of newspapers are assum ing that the United States is as good as at war with the kaiser and liLs people. Why such haste to get into "the stew? There seems to be plenty of war in the world; if we want some we can easily g?t our share without crowding or shoving. Trouble will come j soon enough if it never hap wns. USURPING LOCAL PRIVI LEGES N several occasions the l Pendleton city council has been importuned to grant a franchise for another "elephone company, ore of the requests bem from the auto matic phone people some years ago. The franchise was de nied on the ground a two phone syteni would be an ex pense and a nuisance to the city. On the other hand Pendle ton has generally taken an at titude of welcome toward any prospective rival electric com pany. A competing electric company might easily be of considerable benefit to the city. The point i that our people iave been able to handle this subject satisfactorily. Is it not a fair assumption they can do no in the future? Then why take this power away from the community and lodre it in the hands of the public service commission? How can any one reasonably expect the com mission to know more than do the people of Pendleton as to our own needs and desires? If 1Yus is true with reference to ine community will it not be true of others? The East Oregonfan may be -my dull and backward but it r wnnot nee any public necessity -:-r the so-called "necessity fT7 and convenience" amendment a lack of faith in the regula tory efforts of the public ser vice commission. MUNICIPAL BONDS AS AN INVESTMENT 3 F people would give full consideration to all phases of the subject there would be more conservatism than is shown with reference to pay ing higher and higher prices for farming lands. A farming investment de serves a good net return on the investment because many elements of uncertainty enter into the case and the question of management is of vast im- i portance. i On the other hand there are 'forms of investment where a fixed return is sure and no management whatever is re- ' i quired. Investments in mum ;.vi!cipal bonds will frequently pay better than a farming invest ment. Such bonds in reality consti tute a mortgage on the entire city, school district or country, as th case may be, as they are payable from taxes, which come ahead of all other liens or mortgages and which are levied upon practically all the real and personal property in the municipality. This pro perty is irrevocably pledged for the payment of the bonds at maturity and. the interest due each year. Several excellent arguments are given to prove their worth : They are not affected by business depression. They are exempt from the federal income tax. They are accepted by the government as security for the deposit of postal savings funds. They are easily and quickly convertible into cash, vand it is easy to borrow money on them. They are a convenient form of investment the coupons may be clipped off and de posited in any bank like a check. The banks of this country own over $600,000,000 of mu nicipal bonds; all the big in surance companies own many j millions of them ; they are the i favorite investment of the great savings banks. They are issued under strict regulations of the states. They are easily purchased from reliable dealers and tran sactions by mail may safely be undertaken. Considering all the elements involved the profit in owning bonds i? remarkably hirh and such investments should ap peal strongly to those wanting a safe investment, causing them little worry or trouble.

Miss Anna Martin, chairman of the national leg islative comlttee of the congressional union and leader of the national suf frage lobby here, charges that presi dent Wilson considers himself the "leader" of his party where matters of male suffrage are concerned, but that he becomes a "mere follower of hts party when woman suffrage is dis ouesed. cient food and shelter to keep him alive. The citizens then joined together and gave him a first class funeral, huge flor al pieces being placed upon bis grave despite the fact flow ers are expensive at this time of the year. It is the way of the world. Brickbats while you are alive and bouquets after you are dead. If the proposed Oregon anti- Japanese law is all that bothers our relations with the orient it appears there is no reason for alarm. iiimiiiii AH the small boys in St. Paul have been wanting to come to Pendleton to do cow boying on a horse. Wilson should hold that Eu ropeans are all crazy and that we cannot treat them as ration al beings. Habits are mental; you can do without a monthly shipment if you just think so. Some big stuff is brewing. DO YOU KNOW-- That the receipts for water sales were larger in September last year than for either of the hot months of July or August? That the best advices have It that E. T. Judd and not Dr. W. O. Cole brought the first automobile to Pen dleton and that Darr Phelps was chauffeur for Judd? That R, D.
