"Tiik Ghant" C iI'nty News is niak-
ing a good fight for si woolen mill,
and gives many substantial reason1;
why one should he started at Canyon
City.'' Portland Daily Standard.
Yes, and if sill in this county will
do likewise we will have si mill. A
gentleman called in at our ottice last
Monday and complained to us that
he and his brother had sold their
wool dip and from the time if left
here until the money came hack to
them they were out about $1,800.
Mr. V. & Brother talked of the
matter as a serious swindle on tho
sheep men of this county. Ke also
stated that their wool fell oft' 3000
pounds in weight between here and a
commission house; and that there
were others mentioning names
that had received the same treat
ment. Now, you see, neighbors,
that don't pay; but you sisk what is
to be done ? AVhv subscribe liber
allv, as much as you sav vou lose
in one year on your wool, towards
the erection of a "Woolen Mill in Ibis
Yalley and vour troubles will cease,
for a home market is then establish
ed and buyers will take the wool at
your door. Now when you are csill
ed upon ;. subscribe to the above
siuned irnte" rise do so liberally,
unci then add a hundred dollars or
so for luck and peace and jDlenty
will be yours.

We have lxen asked we didn't
publish the grand jury report. A
few people understand newspaper
rules and duties and a great many
do not. In the first place the grand
jury never recommended its publica
tion. In the second place nevrspa
p'rs do not publish such things free.
Often times thev are vcit lengthy
and as they are a matter of record
papers like courts know the people
can refer to them at any time.

people of the above places to change
from a daily mail to once a week,
