Doran Oompany. New York. 4 Aa gold la tried In the furnace, So He trie the hearts of men; And the dwale and the droaa ahall suffer loss, When He tries the hearts of men. a And the wood, and the hay, and 4 the stubble Shall pass in the flame away. For gain la loss, and loss Is ruin. e And treasure of earth Is poor. and Tain, When He tries the hearts of men. As cold is refined in the fur- a nace. So He fines the hearts of men. The purs-e of the flame doth rid them of shame. When He tries the hearts of men. 4 O, tietter than gold. yea. than e much fine sold, Whan He tries the hearts of men. Are Faith, and Hope, and Truth e and Love, And the Wisdom that corneth e from a bore, When He tries the hearts of against the German divers. The statement accompanying the same carried the assertion that with a sufficient number of these submarine hounds, as they might well be called, the German campaign could be checkmated. The ordinary submarine is of light construction and can not stand up under gun fire from an enemy. A single shot will suffice to destroy the diver. This accounts for the fact the German submarines have made no headway against the British fleet. The great battleships and cruisers are surrounded by destroyers and other small fighting craft that protect them from attack. It is asserted, however, that the Germans have of late de vised a new type of submarine, an armored ship capable of withstanding a certain amount of attack. The new submersible it is said is 285 feet long, is of 7000 horse power, is well equipped for offence and has a surface sailing radius of 6500 miles, therefore being capable of crossing the Atlantic and making the return home. How many submersibles of this type the Germans have put into use is not known but the news is interesting in view of our action in arming merchant ships for defence.

Papers that were not protected by contracts at the outset of the war now have to pay double the usual price for newsprint. In many cases a great hardship is wrought, so much so that more than one publication is face to face with bankruptcy. An interesting explanation has just been made by the St. Louis Post Dispatch as to its last Sunday edition. At that time tne Post-Dispatch was compelled to leave out five pages of advertising ana cur tail its circulation because of lack of newsprint. In explana tion it was asserted there was not enough paper in St. Louis to meet the papers needs. That St. Louis publication is still awaiting receipt by freight of paper shipped from New York and Vermont in the month of January, thus showing that the freight congestion has a bear ing on the situation. The case of the Post Dis patch is typical of the average newspaper, large or small throughout the country. Prices of materials used in the publi cation of newspapers have in creased from 100 to 150 per cent with the result that most of the large city newspapers in the east have increased their subscription or advertising rates or both. SUBMARINES AND SUB . . MARINES ECENTLY the East Ore 2sV aTonian published a pic ture showing the con struction of a large number of auhmanne chasers for use aLL reports from Europe are that the revolt in Russia through which the czar was forced to abdicate was a step towards liberalism. The reports are doubtless true in part at least. It is unquestion ably true that insofar as the common people participated in the uprising they struggled in the hope of obtaining greater political freedom. The revolt, however, does not have the earmarks of a real and genuine revolution. Such a movement comes from the people and is inspired by desire for fundamental changes. The Petrograd re volt was so brief that there is a possibility it was conducted merely by one faction of the nobility against the ruling house of the empire. In that case it is difficult to tell whe ther the step taken means much for Russian freedom or not '"If The future will reveal the exact nature of the uprising in the Russian capital by which the czar was dethroned. It is entirely possible Nicholas was disliked by the aristocracy not because of his absolutism but because he may have had ton many plans for the benefit of the people. With the food situation criti cal from the standpoint of mil lions of consumers and the country faced by possibilities of war a great railroad strike would imperil the safety of the country; President Wilson will be justified in taking extreme steps to avert the strike and in any course he may find it ne cessary to pursue he will have the backing of all patriotic people The biggest people in town will be none too big for mem bership on the school board ; the proper administration of school affairs is a matter of vital importance to Pendleton. j We regret to learn that John Cavlnees of the Island City mills lately met with an accident by which he broke hia leg. We hope he will not suffer as Ions; as did Joe Kee-ney. DO YOU KNOW- That St. Patrick was making his tory in Ireland nearly 1500 years ago? That Inches of enow has fallen In La Grande during the winter? That Judge Fee was fire chief in Pendleton in the latter 80 s? That Vinson was named for John S. Vinson, pioneer settler who used to run a store at that point? That there are eighteen miles of sewer mains In the city r-enaie-ton? That Zenas F. Moody, ex-gover nor of Oregon who died Thursday in Salem, was the founder of the town of Umatilla in 18(2?

MUTT AND JEFF FAR FROM COMIC OPERA Singing is Poor, Jokes Stale and Beauty Chorus a Relic of By-gone Day. The popularity of Mut and Jeff In cartoon was sufficient to draw out a good house to see the alleged com ic opera. "The Marriage of Mutt and Jeff." last night at the Oregon the ater, but It wasn't aurfldent to make the audience like it. The plot, what there was of It, was a rehash of an ancient vaudeville skit, the singing was too poor to get an encore for even the funniest numbers, the danc ing was little better than the antics of aa "awkward squad, Mutt was Just possible. Jeff was a joke and the "beauty chonas could be more ap propriately sasntioned In the "tt Tears Ago column. After seeking the attraction last evening It Is easy to believe that the mnvtee have raid- , ed tbe "legit and stole away much of Its beauty and talent. LOCALS (Paid Advertisement.

NOU PACIFIC RAILWAY COMPANY OFFICK OF TUB FIRST VICR-PUKKlOKNT , . St Paul, Min l., March 17, 1917. TO ALL TRAIN, ENGINE AND YARDMEN EMPLOYED BY THE NORTHERN PACIFIC RAILWAY COMPANYi In the gravest period of National danger which has ever threatened our country, through the authority conferred upon them by your representatives at Chicago on January 11th, last, the heads of your four organizations holding contracts with this company are reported to have ordered you to leave the company service. In the conference at New York March 14th you were offered all the benefits of the Adamson law should it be held constitutional by the Su preme Court of the United States, the questions of its interpretation to be determined by the committee of which General Goethals is the chairman, or, in the event the law should be held unconstitutional, the same committee to determine the whole question of your hours and wages. You were offered these adjustments as of January 1, 1917, the extra pay to which you might be entitled thereunder being allowed you as omitted time. This offer was declined in your behalf, and it is reported that you are now being ordered to strike on account of the authority which you conferred upon the officers of your organization in the vote taken nearly a year ago. Certainly no fairer proposals could have been made by the Railway Managers and to grant more would be yielding to force without regard to fair play. The employes of the North ern Pacific Railway Company need not strike in orler to secure fair treatment now or at any other time. Any controversy which may arise between the officers and employes of this com pany can be settled without resort to force. It has been stated in the press that the Train, Engine and Yacdmen employed on some other lines will not be affected by the strike order. I cannot believe that this is either because of greater loyalty to their employers, or because they are more patriotic than are you. I trust that you will take no hasty, ill-advised or unnecessary action which will bring great inconvenience and perhaps much suffering to large numbers of those who are dependent upon our lines for their very subsistence. I urge you all in this time of the country's need not to be led from what you know is your duty to your country, your families and the Northern Pacific Railway Company. (Signed) GEORGE T. SLADE, First Vice-President. Northern Pacific Ry.
