If Crook county is to head off
for the third time a division o
this county, giving to Antelope
the county seat of anew district
to be known as Stockman conn
ty,she must be up and duing
before the other fellows get the
beat of the nice.
In another column will be
found an article which show
clearly the trend of opinion in
Wasco count', The Hood river
residents are anxious to secure
a division of the county there

western division if made. The

such move as it realizes that in
such a division it would bo losing
one of the richest and most
productive districts embrace.
within its boundaries. On the
other hand it is quite willing
to "can" Antelope, and aid the
latter in its efforts to gobble up
a portion of Crook, another
portiou of southeastern "Wasco,
which is not worth much to the
county proper and from which
little revenue is derived and
establish the count' seat at the
Buckskin town. In all this
Antelope acquiesces as is fitting
her innate modesty, and she is
preparing for an indulgence of
reality in her long cherished
thoughts. Petitions are already
being circulated and meeting
with a ready signature on the
part of The Dalles residents.
The Dalles in so doing is saving
her own neck and making an
effort at the same time to get
rid of a cumbersome barnacle
hanging into her stern beams.
In fact The Dalles admits as
This, ofcourse, isall very nice

nicely and would in all prob

efforts did not wish to devour
the northern quarter of Crook,
one of the most fertile districts
in this country. The residents
in that region are unequivo

Kelson Grewell, of Frog Springs,
, wua in town last Satuaday, and while
here made this office a pleasant visit.
Concerning the road running past his
place, Sage Brush 8prlugs and on to
liyle'e Gap, Mr. Grewe'l said:
"By reason of the grade not Lbing
built north of my place I am com
pelled to travel sixteen unnecessary
miles every time I want a load of
water, and it in not myself alone hut
there is at least fit) families that are
traveling from one to twenty miles
further lhan they should both for
wafer and to railroad. understand
that Perry Monro, the supervisor of
the Gross Keys district, says that he
received orders in the early fall to
open the road in hin district, but
fcliortly after lie received an order from
County Judge Bell countermanding
the instruction to open road." S.iya
Mr. Grewell: "There is a nigger in the
fence somewhere, Our citizens etant
ready to do their share of work and
at-sist in putting this grade through at
.once as It should be, The petition had
beeur allowed; why has Perry Munro
been ordered not to commence work

1005 has been well and extensively
advertised as the Lewis and Clarke
centennial year in consequence of the
gre.tt fair al Portland. And through
8uch efforts many people will for the
first tltuo vie.w thu great natural re
sources and Industrial advantages of
this country. Located as,wo are upon
the main thoroughfaro leading Into
Central Oregon, with Its vast, unde
veloped territory, folding out to thu

What ie more natural than to exp.'d
that many will see and realize tho
abundant promises offered by Madras
ns a future, commercial tenter of a
vast country, whleh in tiie near future
is destined to hecomo one of the
wealthiest and best producing districts
In Central Oregon.
In order that our town should estab
lish and inaiutuln the reputation and
atteutlnn to which it is justly entitled
from its natural advantages means

nels. It means tho ev'uldishment of
society In all its necessary I ranches,
nnd in lino with tho natural progress
of the times. Second to our schools
as a) business proposition, we come to
the moral and religious sentiment of
the community, which all mus-t ague
upon as au essential elemeut auu
necessary to the proper establishment
and maintenance of gpod society in
any community. I do not (with to be
understood as saying or meaning that !

school attendants. Among those who
cannot be called supporteis of such
institutions we find mmy active citi
zens, good neighbors and truo friends.
But we do feel justified in asserting
tl at all are collectively interested in
such matters. And that ail moral and
religious institutions become business
propositions in which all are either
active or dormant partners and each
share In the profits which accrue to
.society. One of the great institutions
iu this line is this Sunday school,
which if given the patronage it merits
brings together the younger members
of the community in a social capacity,
where each one feels an individual in
terest in the matter, where they join
in singing beautiful and ennobling
songB, ana carefully pursue a well
selected course of lessous from the
uiuio iii anvil a r ny (HIV umtilivi wairM
lessons are learned and Impressions
formed which they take with them I
into active manhood and womanhood.
Arid thus society ever has and ever,
will be a beneficiary from such Insti
tutions. Bueh an institution wo have,
at Madras, although tho past year It
has not been running at full capacity. .
During the voir just oloed thu Ma-1
dras Union Sunday school was held '
upon fifty Sundays, with average fit-1
tendance of 23 for each 8und.ty. We
realize that we could and should havo
d no better than this. And If any j
chance to read this who feel that they
havo not given this institution the
support that it justly merits during
the past year, I sincerely hope that
thoy will make amends by giving the
school tho encouragement, support,
and attendance to which it is entitled
during tho year tn05. I)..d.
