It was erroneously stated in
one of the Portland evening

That the wheat farmers of
Eastern Oregon do not spend all
their coin in tho purchase of
more land to grow more wheat
is indicated by figures supplied

section. Within the past six
weeks buzz wagons to the value
of $98,000 have been furnished
to Umatilla County alone and
the other wheat counties have
taken nearly as many. The
wheat growers with big acreage

The "shock" came when the

Another nclivity of the Corona

M. F. Burghduff, the manager
of the club. Evening sessions
are held every week. The Corona

twelve musicians, and rehearsals
are held twice a week.
Additional mall service has
been installed in St. Johns. An
auto now comes from Portland
at about 7:30 every evening and

and takes it to the general office
at Portland. This is an innova

people of St. Johns, especially to
the business men, as it affords
letter service and more of it.

Cheaper Water Rates
By virtue of a ruling of tho
Railways Commission, St. Johns
will enjoy lower water rates. In
an order handed down last Satur
day, the rates will be materially
reduced for some time at least.
While in some particulars the
ruling is not quite clear to the
average mind, yet it is apparent
, that quite 0 1 ttio saving win no
" sureu 10 inu wuim- imiruns.
Those who have heretofore been
1 paying, i.uy per mount ior
1 water, in oruinary cases win get
the same service for 90 cents.
Those who have been paying the
two dollar rate will got the same
service for $1.(1!), although in
both cases more may bo collect
ed if an unusual number of fau
cets arc used. Rates for sprinkl
ing bavo been reduced to one
dollar per month. Where met
ers are installed for domestic
use a minimum charge of $1.40
is allowed. The ruling carries
with it a rebate for all who have
paid in excess of the now rates
since February of last year.
While the rates are not neany
so low as the city council had
attempted to establish some
time ago, yet they represent
quite a saving. Attorneys
Stroud nnd Gatzmyer represent
ed the city before the Commis

are based entirely upon a lair
and equitable basis, both 111 re
