(From the Enterprise)
Itecause of a disagreement In
wages, a force of seventeen laps left
tlie tilavis ranch on Friday, and the
i small army of little fellows went over
j to Hood Klver to work at $::..' per
'day. Mr. ltlchanlson, the efficient
foreman of the ranch, still has a force
of about twenty men at work.
On Feb. 11th the quarterly meeting
of the Mid-Columbia Odd Fellows
will te held at the local hall In White
Salmon. Four degrees will lie
worked, followed by a big supper.
This association is composed of the
Odd Fellows lodges of Hood Klver,

One of the horses of ('has. Spencer's
$700 team got out of the barn Sun
day night and wandered Into the
yard back of the Neal house where it
fell Into the cess pool, the planks
giving way. The animal was pulled
out and was apparently all right,
but an hour or so later dropped
dead, presumably from a ruptured
blood vessel. This was considered
the best team in the valley anil was
used on the Spencer ranch.
The (irange of this place has pass
ed a resolution favoring the proposed
eight-hour law for women. In other
fruit dlstlrcts we have noticed that
the irange has leen opposed to the
bill ou the ground that it would be a
disadvantage In the picking seasons
when labor Is scarce. As we have
not seen the bill .'omment as to the
justice of the same cannot le made.

W. C. Hunter, the merchant, has
teen in a precarious condition from
blood poison, due to the prick of a
sliver In one of his fingers. Over a
dozen Incisions were made in his arm
all the way from the wrist to the
shoulder, to counteract the Infection.
Ills condition was so serious that
Miss Kdlth Gill, a trained nurse, was
brought from Hood Klver. At this

Petitions are out for a division of
Klickitat county and a small part of
Skamania county. The portion as
to territory reads as follows: All

Klickitat lying west of the range'
line ls-t ween ranges l.'l and 14, east,
and that part of Skamania county
lying east of range line lietween 1
ranges 0 and 10. 'I bis would start ;
ths east line of the new county a
short distance beyond Grand Dalles
and thence straight north to Yakl
ma county. That portion of Ska
ui'inia county to l.e tnken iu Is the
small jog that laps Into Klickitat
and generally known as the I'nder
wood country. A number of the
I'nderwood people have expressed a
desire to come Into a new county as
U would be convenient for them, and
at the sume time tlie.v would Is- a
part of a county that would become
famous for its fruit.
T. Wyers has made a contract
with the Klickitat Development Co.,
of which W. K King of Portland Is
manager, to do Its staging and
freighting between White Salmon
station and Its camp eight miles
north of (ilen woo.. Already fifty
men have lieeu taken through and
the camp may employ 1.10 men dur
ing the summer. In which event the
stage line will run two stages dally.
This Is an important contract for It
means a lot of business going
through the place. Heretofore It has
gone through Lyle, where a stage
line was put on just, on the strength
of this business. Camp Mystery Is
the name given to the camp on the
head waters of the Klickitat river,
where men have been making ditches
digging holes, grading, etc., for the
past year, but no one knows for
whom :r for what purpose. It Is
surmised that It Is for power pur
poses as It Is bucking the Horse
Heaven Company In the same dis
trict. Transfer Honor to Dufur
The Pendleton Kast Oregonlan re
marks: "Representative Gill, of
Hood Kiver, has a plan to have the
speaker of the house of representa
tives chosen from outside the house,
but by members of that body. He
thinks this plmi would do away
with trading. Hut would it do so?
Might it not be a jump from the fry
ing pan Into the lire?"
We are compelled to call the at
tention of the Fast Oregonlan to the
fact that Hood Kiver has troubles
enough without fathering the author
of the above bill and that we trans
fer this unexpected honor to Dufur,
where It belongs. Fd.
