Letters have been written to Pen
dleton asking that Im Grande be given
the high school athletic conference
this month, when a complete set of
regulations are to be "drawn up and
adopted. Wh((. Pendleton took the
". 'initiative and is due much credit, still
it Is not In line with the best Interests
of all concerned, that the conference
be held In thut city. Im Grande Is the
central point. It is very evident that
it is not Justifiable to ask Ontario to
come to Pendleton when that delega
tion, and Baker City. too. can come to
Ln Grande much cheaper. Then, too,
there is Wallowa county, that could
not bo represented unless the delega
tion spent four days in making the
trip. To La Grande It could he done
In less than two days. There are four
high schools In Union county that
would be pinched to send delegates to
Pendleton, while to La Grande It
would be easy. It is really absurd to
send one set of delegates from Wal
lowa, one from Ontario, one from Ba
ker City and four from Union county
to an out-of-the-way place, when ex
penses might as well be divided as
evenly as possible.

For Ten Days
I came to the Grande Ronde Val-1
ley some months ago to give the j
people of this community the advant- i
age of reliable dental work at reason-:
able prices and I have found thut this
determination has been appreciated.
It is due every man that he get a
reasonable recompense for his work ;
and base my practice on that prin-:
ciple. My patrons shall receive the i
same consideration that I should ex-:
pect if I had occasion to employ a
Deniist. Very Respectfully j

Pendleton. Feb. 2. The Tribune
publishes a story today of the toll gate
niiiil, which says, that according to
visitors In the city from Milton, the
esideiits of that section are endeavor
ing to have the old toll gate road from
hat city across the Hlue Mountains to
:if;ln, iibollshed by the legislature and
made Into a public highway.
The road Is one of the oldest in the
state and has been held by a corpora-
ion for a number of years, ln the
ariy days, there was not much traf
ie over this pass through the moun
.1 ins. but of late years the travel has
increasi d wonderfully and the rev-
ni:-s ere claimed to be great.
Tl'."-;.' who have traveled over the
road claim that it Is not k t in the
oiidi;b-n it should be kept in. ami
ti nt until it is made a public road it
will ii"t be. T'"-r som.- time the prm
clpal stoekhobii-rs in the corporation
have b.-en Uinchart and Woodward.
The former is of Walla Walla, while
the l ifer refill. -s ill Milton.
T'i-' matter has been taken up b
