Prosperous Towns In Heart of Fer
tile Walla Walla Valley Have
Better Outlook Than Ever; Fu
ture Consolidation Likely.
BY ADDISON BENNETT.
TWIN CITIES. Umatilla County. Or,
Aug. 27. (Special Correspondence.)
It would be as Impossible to write an
article about Freewater without men
Honing Milton as It would to write
about Milton without having much to
say about Freewater. So I will call
the two places the nam often given
them and endeavor to give the reader a
fair idea of their standing.
Milton was Quite an old town long
before Freewater was ever thought of.
When the 0.-W. E.4K. was built from
Pendleton north to Walla Walla, the
engineers found It impracticable to
run directly through the little town of
Milton. It missed It by a mile, or about
that dlstanoe. I meant the heart of the
town, for the depot la in the eltv lim
its. A few years later a little trading
point started up just outside of the city
limits, but near tha depot. In time this
place began to be Called Freewater, by
which name It Is still known. There
are various stories about the cause for
the establishment of this town, but
let It be attributed to business reasons
pure and simple. No matter how It
came about, no matter how fortunate
for some and unfortunate for others
It was the people of the two places

ferences, and seem to be maklnir united
errorta to build ud the Twin Cities.
No doubt when the present population
is doubled or trebled, as It will be in a
mighty few years, the people of the
Twin Cities will get together In a spirit
of friendship snd amity and unite the
two places under one city government.
Tevra la Wonderful Valley.
This Is In that portion of the won
derful Walla Walla valley, belonging to
Oregon. The river runs through Milton,
and there separates Into two streams,
one being called the Little Walla Walla
and the other retaining the name
Walla Walla. The former flows through
Freewater. The main valley lies off to
the north, northwest and northeast,
towards Walla Walla and Its environs.
The entire country, nearly all of it, be
tween here and the ridge north of that
city, la practically a vast garden spot.
much of It covered with fruit tree a
And In the entire state of Oregon there
is no more prosperous - section than
this. While It Is a fruit country first
and a garden section second, there Is
something being shipped almost every
day from early In March until the first
of the next January, and when Winter
applea sell a trifle slow, as they did last
year, the shipments of fruits and
produce keep up the year through.
I said it is a prosperous section; I
can go farther and say that It never
before had a better outlook than It has
today. Remember now 1 am not speak
ing of Milton or Freewater, but of
both of them, and the district In which
they are situated.
Perhaps it will be well to explain
that It Is an irrigated district. The
annual precipitation hereabouts Is
oftener under 15 inches than above it.
The wheat lands around get but one
crop in two years. The land now in
orchards and gardens was all in wheat
before water was put on it. Now
water la taken from the Walla Walla
River for much of the grult and garden
section, but a good deal of land is irrl
gated by pumping from wells.
Water Righta Well Adjusted.
Irrigation here is an art. In no
place that I know of do the water
users, the irrigators, get better service
from the water at their disposal than
here. Indeed, the irrigators of this
section are noted for that. Another
thing the water rights of this entire
valley have been adjusted, so there Is
no longer any friction or , disputed

There are two railroads here, the O.

tric. The latter has a train each way
every hour from I A. M. to I P. M, and
several later trains. It is 12 miles to
Walla Walla by the steam road, IS by
the trolley. Both of these roads are
doing a wonderful business here,
fruit Shipments Large,
Fully 1000 carloads of fruit and vege
tables will be shipped from here dur
ing the year 1912, and nobody can es
timate anywhere near accurately the
smaller shipments. Then come the grain
shipments, about 100,000 sacks, and per
haps 200 carloads of hay and alfalfa.
Add to these figures the stock ship
ments and the merchandise shipped In.
and it will be seen that the railroads,
principally the O.-W. R. & N, get a big
revenue from the freights handled in
and out of the Twin Cities.
All the fruit this year Is being han
dled through the Milton Fruitgrowers'
Union and the Walla Walla Fruitgrow
ers' Association, in connection with the
Pacific States Central Selling Agency.
The two former see to grading, pack
ing and shipping the products, and the
latter does the selling. This Is the first
season of this arrangement, the local
packing-houses heretofore doing their
own selling. But thus far the present
arrangement is more than satisfactory.
W. B. Brooke, the president of the. Free
water Commercial Club, said that last
year the prunes (one of the big crops
here) brought the shippers an average
of $12.60 a ton; this year they have ao
far netted $35. Cherries last season
were a drug at a price scarcely above
the cost of freight, packing and. boxes:
this year they have averaged $50 a ton
net. More than 210 tona were shipped
East, through a San Francisco house, to

Milton Has glx Churches.
Milton is a town of churches and
church people. There are six churches
in the little burg Methodist Episcopal.
Presbyterian, Adventist (Seventh Day,
Baptist, Christian and Church of God.
On the Freewater side they have the
Catholic and a federated church, the
latter being a consolidation of several
organizations of different denomina
tions. There Is also a college, the Co
lumbia College, on the Milton side,
where they educate people for the min
istry. This belongs to the Methodist
Episcopal Church South. It haa dur
ing the term about 14S students.
Whatever one may think of the
towns' being divided and scattered, one
thing is certain on school Questions
there are no division, no dissent or dis

Is a good grade school in each town
and a central high school in the center
of the district, midway between the

The taxable property of the district
exceeds $1,000,000, so the tax Is low.
Professor J. J. Sturglll is city superin

INTEREST IX WASHINGTON.
Contract of Delinquents Ordered
Canceled -Where Improvements
Have Not Been Made.
OLTMPIA. Wash, Aug. 27. (Special)
Democratio members of the State
Board of Land Commissioners definite
ly asserted themselves yesterday and
addVted resolutions instructing the
Republican Commissioner of Public
Lands, Clark V. Savidge, to proceed
forthwith to cancel and annul all land
contracts on which Interest payment is
delinquent and where no substantial
improvementa have been made.
State Forester Ferris, who as a
member of the board. Introduced the
reaolutlon, followed it with aharp
comments on the policy of the land
office to date In this matter. "It haa been
the practice to permit such persons to
hold large areas for two or three years
without even psylng the Interest, and
then when they have opportunity to
dispose of such Ianda at a big profit to
allow them to come In and pay up,"
said Ferris. Ferris added he did not
believe It should be the policy of the
board to work a hardship on farmers
who have made improvements on their
lands In good faith.
The Board of Land Commissioners
consists of the Commissioner of Pub
llo Lands, an elective official and the
State Forester and the three members
of the Tax Commission, all appointive
officials and all Democrats at present.
In past years, however, the policy of
the board always haa been guided by
the suggestions of the Land Commis
sioner, except for a short time during
the administration of Governor Hay,
when hie appointees clipped the wings
of Land Commissioner Ross. Now It
appears that Governor Lister's Demo
cratic appointees have determined to
take over active direction of land

NIGHT - NOISES DISTURB
Eugene Council, However, Decides
to Let Gravel Trucks Run.
EUGENE. Or, Aug. 27. (Special.)
That troublesome consciences, rather
than the passing motor trucks, keep
some Eugene persons awake, was the
suggestion offered at the Council meet
ing by Y. D. HensllL Alderman, when
Mayor To ran mentioned protests that
have been made at the noise of the
gravel haulers at night. Macadamlx
ing of roads leading out of Eugene has
made a heavy demand on the crushed
rock dealers, whose five-ton trucks are
kept going throughout the day and
night to keep ahead of the workmen
on the roads.
Another Councilman suggested that
the railroads and other evidences of
prosperity make much noise at night,
and. that the best thing to do Is to
get 'accustomed to the noise.
The gravel trucks are still running.

Next Saturday night will see the end

last session of the Legislature, making
them Illegal, becoming effective Sep
tember 1. The fight to do away with
saloons In railway stations was atarted
by Governor West more than a year
ago. when an effort waa made to close
the bars in the Jefferson-street station,
in Portland, through injunction pro
ceedings. It developed that the exist
ing law relating to the subject was not
sufficient to close the saloons and a
new one was passed.
The law affects a large number of
aaloons throughout the state. So far
as is known, the saloon men have no
intention of fighting the law.

Keeping the Body in Repair
Nature intended that the body should do its own
repairing and it would do so were it not for the
fact that most of us live other than a natural life.
Nature didn't intend that we should wear corsets, tight collars or
shoes, nor live in badly ventilated and draughty houses, nor eat and
drink some of the things that we do, nor ride la street cars when we should walk.
The consequence is that the body when it gets out of order must look for oat-
siae neip to make tne necessary repairs.
