Every business man and property
owner in ims city siiouiu iicai . Twii
Richardson. It Is not putting it too
strong to say that Portland's growth
the past few years dates from the time
that Tom Richardson took up his work
of boosting. He was the man more
than' any one else who wiped away
the strife of various points In the
state against Portland. It waa "the!
Portland hog" for years, but we dOj
not hear this kind of talk of latej
years. The state at large Is proud of j
Portland's wonderful growth and the
Portland business men are doing what
they can to see all sections of the state
grow. It is a mutual benefit.
It Is time to commence thinking of
and planning for a Fourth of July cel
ebration. As a nest-egg there Is a
balance of something over $100 In the
treasury, left over from the last one.
La Grande should never let another
Fourth go ty without celebrating.
That does not mean that none of our
citizens should not visit other places.
but we owe it to our citizens. Here
we are a city of 6000 people and under
the most carefully laid plans it is
hardly possible for more than 800 or
10U0 of our people to ever get away
This leaves 5000 of our own people
I without the educational advantages of
I a properly conducted Fourth.
It wan a clean, gentlemanly contest
between Mr. Cake and cnator Fu'.ton
as fur fts they were personally con
cerned. Two years ago whi'n Mr.
Cake wan defeated he took the stump
for Senator Bourne, demonstratlng
that he waa equally a good loser as he
was a winner. In this ca.mpulgn he
Is entitled to the support of every
supporter of Mr. Fulton, and there la
no question but that he will receive It.
It Is no wonder that horse buyers
come to Union county for their fine
stock. The question has been asked
the past few months, when It was gen
erally known thut carload after car
load of horses have been shipped out
of this valley, where they all come
from. The many fine horses In the
parade on . Saturday answered that
question to the satisfaction of all.
The success of Market day on Satur
Lday should result In continuing this
day legularly, not less than once each
month. It proves another 'thing, that
La Grande business men are the ones
to conduct It. It requires no outside
booster to make a Market day a sue
cess In La Grande.
Statement No. 1 was the chief Issue
In most of the counties and with very
few exceptiona was victorious through
out the state. This will never be an
Issue again. In the future each and
every candidate for the legislature will
"Mr. Cake will have my unqualified
support, and I will ask my friends to
give him theirs." Senator Fulton.
Now let us get together and have

A Thousand Dollars' Worth of Good.
A. H. Thurnes, a well known coal
operator of Buffalo, O., writes: "1
have been afflicted with kidney and
bladder trouble for years, passing
gravel and stones with excrucatting
pain. I got no relief from medicine
until I began taking Foley's Kidney
Cure, then the result waa 'surprising.
A few doses started the brick dust like
fine stones and now I have no pain
across my kidneys and I feel like a
new man. It has done be 1 1000 worth
of good." A. T. Hill.
