Situated near the Malheur Lake, on a high, fine gentle
sloping tract of land. This site offers exceptional
opportunity for making a good city. Vast areas of ara
ble territory spread out in all directions. Every valley
and streamlet of the distant mountains has its ranches
and flourishing livestock. Considerable land in the
valley is still subject to homestead entry, and with the
advent of the
Now building toward Harney Valley this grand new
empire will teem with land seekers and people seeking
business opportunities and professional locations.

A limited number of lots are now offered for sale at remarkably low prices,

iii.vni, III., Is one MMMg the
few remaining number of
those who remember the enrly
days of the rebellion and the distract
ing potlttt ai struggles of that time. Mr.
Stevens, who was Orst sergeant of
Company R. One Hundred nnd Twenty-second
Illinois volunteers, recently
told me some very Interesting details
of the situation among the soldiers In
the early sixties.
During Oi tober. 1804, while waiting
for his regiment to come In from Its
pursuit of OtMNl Sterling Price, he
served ns adjutant nt the convalescent
barracks in St. l,oiils. Four hundred
men were stationed there at that time,
representing many regiments and
stales About one -f till i of the boys
were for Ocneriil McClcllan for presi
dent, while the remaining two thirds
were for Mr Lincoln. About a hun
dred were from Illinois, which state,
owing to legislative enactment, did not
permit its troops to vote In the field,
although many other states had made
provision to that end.
As election day drew near the anx
iety of the men to exercise the right of
franchisethe right of American cltl-aenshlp-became
sympathizers had spread a report that
the government had Issued an order
forbidding the furloiighlng of McClel
lnn men Ik. me to vote Hut the lie was
given lo this report In an order from
the president directing that soldiers re
siding In stales where no provision for
voting In the Held had been made
should be given furloughs home and
for a length of time that would glvtt
them ample opportunity to vote, to
vote as they pleased, ami return to
their respective commands
The result was thai many soldiers
who had Intended voting against Mr
Lincoln voted for him, because he had
given Hum an uuiramineled ballot and
hail proved to i hem that he was not
the narrow minded partisan his euu
mles tried to mal.e him appear
