The Herald called up Superintend
ent Joseph A. West of the Sumpter
Valley, and he said the report that
his road would build to Prlnevllle was
not correct, as no extension would be
made this year. Mr. Eccles has been
considering the advisability of extend
ing the road from Hood River and the
Sumpter Valley from Austin to meet
at Prlnevllle, but the work will not be
done this year because of the high
price of rails, the condition of labor,
and other matters that would affect
the work. The line will probably be
extended, but not this year. Baker

tired after lta game last night with La
Grande, exhibited Its customary team
work. Numerous penalties called nn

Walla boys who are accustomed to
playing hard and fast. Much of the
rough play which characterized the
contest at Walla Walla was eliminated
by frequent blowing of the referee's
and umpire's whistles.
Both halves were consistently con
tested. The first half ended 17 to l a
