Thursday, May 30, .1912 WHY NOT? For some time past there has been very earnest consideration on the part of. a number of our church-going and church-supporting people of the Imposition to federate the chuches of Heppner. Now this may not be considered a subject altneether proper for cons'der ation in thd secular press as these matters are supposed to be settled by the church peoule' themselves, vet we have in mind all matters looking to the betterment of condiions in this community, and withal this is a sub ject in which the editor of this paper is personally interested. In this little town of Heppner we have at present no less than six strug gling church organizations and at this time bnt four of thorn are maintain ing the services of a pastor. The straggle that each is passine through from a financial s'andpoint to do even the little that is being dune, none but those who are particularly interested can testify to. Within the past three years three of these churches have enlarged their houses of worship and today any one of the three will amply house the entire church-going community. But two of them have pastors, and only,1 one of these giving his full time to his church in this town. What's the mat'er ? The difficulty lies in the fact that there is too much division of interest. Too much keeping apart over matters of minor importance. Too much of party spirit.. The thing to do is to cut these out and let a number of the churches come together in cne organ ization and save this waste of money and energy. The spirit of federation and co-operation is in the air. It is striking the hurches and the conditions that exist in the smaller oomnnities will be remedied. We favor this move. Lot the churches of Heppner unite, federate, get together, and have a good, well paid pastor; unite their forces for do ing good aid conserve this waste of money ana energy. A mass meeting is baiug arranged for the very near future to discuss this question, pro and eon, with a view to arriving at the proper con clusion and if you have never thought of what such a move would mean to this community will yon kindly give it consideration and be prepared tc take nart in a proper discuss-ion of the methods necessary to consummate this most desirable event in the his tory of Heppner. The Nvomen of Washington are pre paring to take an active part in the forthcoming campaign. Already two of them are avowed candidates for different oiliocs. The latfst is Mrs. Josephine Preston, who will run for state superintendent of puhlio instruc tion, on the Republican ti ket. Mrs. Hreston is at present county superin tendent in Walla Walla county where she has made a good record. She is organizing her campaign systemat ically and promises to have the sup port cf manv vell known educators. Mrs. Timblin of Olvmpia, ia the other woman candidate. She wants to be state land commissioner. This indicates that some women appreciate the right of suffrage and intend to avail themselves of its best opp rtu nities. "Graduated Single Tax" is now proposed by the singlo-taxers in Ore gon. It is aimed at the land-grabbers and the railroads, they assert. By all means, mulct the railroads in taxes and then demand lower freight rates. Harpoon these corporate mon sters a-goin' and a-comin'. By and by, melbe, they will pull up their bloomin' tracks and quit runiu' their noisy cars and bother us no longer. Everybody who builds a railroad ought to go broke in his nefarious sohemes, like Henry Villard snd G. W. Hunt. Bv the war, we understand that Mr. F?l, who suDp'ifs the "war chest" fot the single taxers, made his for tune out of soap. Society gives val ne to soap as well as to land and on railroads. Then why not propose a graduated EingN tax on soap by way nf variety? Weston Leader. A beautiful folder, issued by the O.-W. R. & N.

FROM OVER THE STATE. Congress to olve Cut-Over Lands Problem. IRRIGON. The proposition to build a new schoolhouse for Hepuner is meeting with favorable comment. The ptople of this district realize that the pres ent as well as the fu'uie needs demand more adequate facilities ; this has been understood for a long time but the conditions financially and otherwise have been against the move for a new and up-to-date building. Ths time has come, however, to tase definite action and prepare for a new struc ture. A vote of the district at this time would no doubt authorize the work, providing the patrons of the school and the taxpayers genera' lv can be made to understand the urgent need Aa stated in lata issue, the directors are up against the necessity of mak ing some extensive improvements to the old building. More room must be provided and repairs are Deeded that will call for the expenditure of quite a gum of money. There can be no going ahead with plans that are matured for the betterment of the school unless thrsa things are done, and when you have fixed up the old house it Is still unfit and not properly located, and the money thos expended is practically wasted. The good judg ment of our people would seem to be against any such procedure. It is now a good time to push this along. Let us have a suitable new school bnilding, erected on lower ground than the present site, and if possible t us get this ready for consideration at the annnal school meeting on the 17th of the coming month.

A meteing of iutorast to the whole Pacific Norhwest will be held in Port land uext October when the Commer cial Club and Realty Board will hold a Logged-off Land Congress.

Land offices reuort a great deal of inquiry for vacant land in this state aud if is exDected that 1912 will be notable for the large areas of the Government domain to be taken hy settlers. The change in the land laws, allowing a residence of three years on a homestead preliminary to making proof, which has passed both houses of Congress and waits only the signature of the President, is - making pnblic lauds more attractive than ever before to the settler. Portland peoule are discovering Ore gon. .During the past week an excur sion was run into Tillamook county that was an eye-opener to the 100 par ticipants. Only a small part of the crowd bad ever been to Tillamook before and they came back to Port land singing the praises of that fav- I ored section.
