It Is becoming as popular to Impose
heavy sentences on violators of the
local option, law as It Is on horse and
cattle thieves. - The circuit court at
Newport this week fined one man $200

Vice-President Fairbanks this week
delivered an address before the Excel
lon Springs Chautauqua. We never
see or hear anything about a Chautau
qua association but what wa are Im
pressed with the fact that La Grande
la letting a golden opportunity pass by
In not securing one. Some day either
Baker City or Pendleton will grasp
the situation and the field will be oc
cupied. There Is a grand opening for
one In eastern Oregon. La Grande Is
the place, but If we sit waiting for
ever It will be elsewhere.
Elks hall should be well filled this
evening to lay the foundation for the
Irrigation project It Is true this Is
not Just the time to hold monster mass
meetings. Harvest Is on. Again,
many will let the other fellow attend,
and ask them how the proposition
sounds. Others cannot conceive how
It Is possible for a big proposition like
this to be consummated without some
promoter making a few dollars out of
It. Every business mnn should come
out this evening and become acquaint
ed with the details as far as at pres
ent worked out. It may require a
whole lot of work to secure the 20,000
acreage. Again, It may not. One lund
owner near this city knows that he
will contract for 600 acres, and Is
thinking seriously of making It 1000.
The whole thing Is simple, If the peo
ple will become sufficiently Interested
to Invciitlgate the proposition. Come
out this evening so you can be pre
pared to know what to say when you
re asked questions, relative to the
biggest project ever attempted In the
Grnndo Ronde valley.

Every Greek employed by the O. U.
& N. on the coal bins, where JO.OOO
tons of coal are being stored, were
summarily dismissed last evening. The
reason for the action is that the Greek
are too quarrelsome and too mean 'or
practical purposes. The foremen hav
had much trouble with the gang of JO
or so who are unloading the coal, and
came to the conclusion that more
could be done without them. The
dismissal came all In a heap, and th;
entire gang is now hanging around the
yards awaiting an opportunity to get
Japanese will replace them. The
contractors find the latter class of la
borers less likely to -Indulge In quar
rels either with the foremen or be
tween themselves. ,

Kiddle Bros, and associates have
added another flouring mill to their
possession by the purchase of the El
gin 80-barrel mill. The company now
owns mills at Union, La Grande, Im-
bier and Elgin, and will within the
next few weeks commence the con
struction of a large mill i.: l':.ind City
to replace the Plone-r mill which vr.i
recently destroyed by fire.
The purchase price of the Elgin
property is reported to be 20, 000.
With five mills distributed In the b'est
wheat-growing sections of the county,
and being thorough mill and business
men, they have the foundation for a
large and Increasing annual business.
It Is understood that J. F. Bafer of
Union, will have charge of the Elgin
mill Just as soon as he gets the Im
11 '-r mill In running shape.
Yesterday this company purchased
the entire wheat crop of A. B. Conley,
as much of the grain is yet In the
field and little threshed, the amount
of bushels Is yet unknown, but the
sule was made.
It requires a lot of wheat to keep
five flouring mills going 10 months In
the year, running day and night. It
will thus be seen that this firm, of
necessity, will be the largest wheat
buying concern In tho Grande Ronde
Last night Chief Waldon and the
nlnht officers rounded up 22 hoboes
and loaded them Into a box car and
deported them. Each and every hobo
received personal Instructions to stay
In that particular car until they had
placed a respectable distance between
them and the city of La Grande.
Chief Waldon states that this Is not
an uncommon proceedure on the pot
of the officers. He says the Weary
Willies keep out of sight during the
daytime and In the evening begin to
show up In the alleys and residence
portion of the city. Then the officers
take a hand and the alley creepers re
ceive notification to leave town.
