Telegram Received by Postmaster
Fell Saying. That Matter Must
Await Action of Congress Regard
ing an Appropriation.
Whether or not Pendleton gets a
free mail delivery now depends on an
appropriation from congress, and it is
almost a settled fact that it will not
be installed by the first of July, as
had been announced.
Following is a telegram which Post
master Fell received from Washing
ton, D. C, In regard to the free de
"If congress makes the necessary
appropriation the examinations which
were to have been held in Pendleton,
May 24, will be held June 7, other
wise, not until after July 1. Notify
applicants to appear June 7, instead
of May 24, unless further advised."
In Bpeaking of the meaning of the
above telegram this morning, Post
master Fell said that he did not quite
understand what was meant by wait
ing on congress for an appropriation,
for it had been his. impression that
everything was settled and that all
the preliminaries had been wound up
so that there was nothing in the way
of the free delivery except tho exam
ination of applicants for carriers and
the placing of the boxes for the re
ception of outgoing mail. The date
set for the examination of applicants
was next Saturday, May 24, and Post
master Fell had been looking for a
government civil service man every
day for the past week, who was to lo'
cate the place forthe. boxes and lay
out the routes.
Now this has been postponed until
the 7th of June. As the free deliv
ery has been promised for more than
a year and all the local details attend
ed to, and every time something has
happened to cause a postponement,
the local postoffice authorities, as
well as the residents, are becoming
somewhat skeptical and very little de
pendence will be placed on promises

Sumpter, Oregon, May 22. Hon.
W. J. Furnish and C. W. Fulton arriv

The Times-Herald's report of the
meeting declares the rally to have
been a frost of the worst kind. "The
speakers tried in vain to wake up the
cold-blooded crowd, and once in a
while succeeded in drawtag faint
response from the bored listeners," Is
the way it describes the meeting,
while it also states that the report
sent the Oregonian .and the real thing
were decidedly different. "Instead of
75 people headed'by the band to meet'
the speakers at the outskirts of town,
there were not to .exceed that many on

There were no cheers that anyone
heard," says the Times-Herald reporter.
