Cheering news Is broSght from
Walla Walla about the proposed ltv
trlc railway from that city lnii. Wal
lowa county, by George S. Cra's whe
has Ju&t returned from there, vl'-t
he attended the graduating recital of
hie daughter, Miss Joyce, at Whitman
Collego Conservatory of Music. Mr.
Craig Is convinced the Walla Walla
people mean business. In an Interview
with the News-Record of Enterprise,
he said: 1
"I was much surprised at the things
being done by Walla Walla capitalists
In the matter of the electric line we
have been frequently hearing ' about.
It can be said with certainty that they
have thoroughly Investigated arid sur
veyed a route from Walla Walla to the
Grande Ronde river at or near the
mouth of the Little Salmon. People
of Walla Walla are very anxious for
t'.c roc to tc c ?r.,T,v nn Vitt&r-
prlse and I found that they stand
ready to assist In a substantial man
ner In the continuation of the line from
the Grande Ronde river to this city.
They already know about the popula
tion of the north end of the county,
and the fertility of the soil In all
parta of the county, and have evident
ly figured out that besides , tapping a
big timber belt they can no doubt do
a good business In freight and passen
ger traffic between the north end of
the county and Enterprise. If the
people of Enterprise will show one'
half aa much enthusiasm in the mat
ter as Is shown In Walla Walla, we
can expect something to be doing.
Much of my Information I received on
my trip Is confidential and I am' not
at liberty to make It public at this
time. I will say this much, however,
that now Is the time for us to get
TrcKHutrr's Call for City Warrant.

STATE WASTING THOUSANDS.
Armory Appropriation Bill Would Save
Much Money In the End.
Portland, Ore., April 20. (Special.)
"Does It pay to have a landlord?"
That world-old question of economy is
being asked by Oregon National
guardsmen all over the state. An
swer that question and you have ex
pressed your views on the armory "bill
which Is to be voted on at the June
election, they say.
"Under the present arrangement the
state li in the position of a man who
has another's roof over his head," said
Adjutant General W. E. Flnzer, In an
Interview today on the subject of the
armory bill. The state not only suf
fers all the Inconveniences of being a
tenant, but Is also paying out thous
ands of dollars In rent that should be
golnglnto substantial structures.
"Leaving aside the patriotic mo
tives which should cause every voter
to lend all support possible to the Na
tional Guard, now a line of national
defense, the economic aspect of the
armory bill should carry It at the
June election alone. At present Ore
gon has rented armories fpr local com
panies at such points as Salem, Al
bany, Roseburg, Pendleton, Baker
City, Eugene and six other cities.
These armories are not suitable for
the purpose to which they are put and
they cost the state exactly $5000 per
year. 1 '
"The armory bill appropriates $25.-
000 per year for four years for the
building of 12 armories. Thus the to
tal approp::culon la $100,000. It
doesn't take much figuring to show
that In a few years the state would be
ahead on the deal and that the armory
bill, instead of being an expensive
necessity. Is a good Investment for the
taxpayers who have the future welfare
of the state at heart."
