Uklah, Ore., Nov. 10. Ukiah was
named for the town of Uklah, Cali
fornia. The grounds occupied by the
town were originally laid out by the
Camas Land Company In 1890, and
the postofflce was established the
same year, with D. C. Whiting as first
postmaster. E. B. Gamble, one of tho
organizers of the company named tho
town and still lives near the place and
Is one of the oldest pioneers of Camas
Uklah Is not only the central point
of a wealthy portion .of Camas prairie,
where stockralslng and dairying pre
dominate, but is surrounded by a
large scope of country with undevel
oped resources. The timber belt ah.ne
lying at her door promises a large in-
nme in the future. It is now hclni:
tikea up at a rapid rate and all of tho
Idle lands are being fenced.
UKiah is also the gateway to the
traffic from the John Day country aud
ether rich points in the interior of the
state. It is a popular stopping point
f-r teamsters, stockmen and travel-
ei s. Millions of dollars' worth of cat
tle) aio driven through this placo an
iiH ly, as many as four thousand
head having been driven throned -it
fed at this place within a few days'
tint'. Three hundred head, a??rogal
ing $12,000 In vaHie were fed here re
cently in one night.
Early Mall Service.
The first, mall route was establish-
to Uklah in 1890. Prior to that time
citizens had to go to Alba for their
mall, and old pioneers tell about how
in olden times they used to send
across the Blue mountains for their
mall, the carrier often having to go
on snow shoes. The first four-horse
stage driven between Ukiah and Pen
dleton was driven by J. T. Huston,
pioneer of this place.
A "Dry" Town.
Uklah is one of the oddities among
interior towns in the fact that it is
strictly a prohibition town. There
has never been a drop of liquor sold
in the place. When the company that
organized the town was formed, an
agreement was entered into by which
no property should be sold upon which
the sale of liquors should be permit
ted. The first deed contained this
clause and all subsequent deeds have
contained It and the agreement has
beeen lived up to religiously. The
"drug store racket" will not work
here. The owner of the drug store Is
justice of tho peace and a tee-to&taler
and uder no circumstances will he
break the rule.
The school is one of the features
of Ukiah. This, it is claimed, is' one
of the good results of a prohibition
town. They claim that farmers send
their sons to school here through the
winter months without fear of having
them led astray. They also expect the
place to make a great educational
point. They claim that it Is a healthy
location and that the universal mild
ness of the climate makes it a desir
able place to live.
Uklah is situated In school district
No. 80. Alisses Stella L. and Lulu O.
Marple, of Pendleton, are at present
teaching and have one of the best
schools in the county. There are 74
pupils cmolled and G3 In a.t nulaiice.
Thirty-eight of these are la the prim
ary department and 30 are in the
higher grade. The school Is well
equipped with apparatus, but has
sold its library for tho reason that It
vat not well se)ec':c"l. The di'.t'-'ct
owns property to tho vulue nf about
$1000 and Is about out of deot. The
school board consists of William Mc
Reynolds, (chairman), Frank Hllbert
and Tom Gllllland, W. T. Sellers Is
clerk. The school Is open nn average
or seven mouths a year.
Uklah is a well-watered place. The
water Is cold and pure and travelers
claim that It is a treat, in fact, to get
a drink of water anywhere In Camas
Prairie, and It abounds everywhere.
At only a short depth It may be found
In unlimited quantities.
Besides being a dally stage station,
with express ofllce and postofllce,
Uklah has a telephone line and Is well
equipped with business Institutions.
She has two church organizations and
one church building. The. I.ibeial
branch of the United Brethren have
a building which cost about $1000.
The Methodists are organized, but
have no church building. Neither or
ganization has a pastor at present and
no services have been conducted hero
for some time. Reverend Baldwin, a
Methodist minister recently from
Kansas has been stationed at Pilot
Rock, and will divide his time be
tween Pilot Rock, Alba and Ukiah.
Uklah has a weekly newspaper, tho
Sentinel, which Is in Its third volume.
J-red Hewctt Is the editor and proprie
tor. C. A. Despaln runs n general
store. Ho has been connected with
the store a number of years, having
recently bought the interest of his
brother, Jem- Despaln. one of the
best known business men In the coun
ty. He Is fully capable of keeping up
the high standard of tho business.
His stock Is well arranged nnd he sup
plies a largo trade.
S. Kirk also has a go d store, far
above the average In small towns. He
carries an assortment of general mer
chandise, and this means almost
everything. He hns been In business
In Uklah six years and draws a large
trade throughout Camas Prairie.
W. T. Sellers carries niedlelnes and
sundries as well as a large stock of
cigars, tobaccos and confectlonaries.
Dr. G. U. Snapp also has an office at
this store. He has been In the prac
tice of medicine at Uklah for three
E. E. GIbbs has a splendid black
smith shop. He does general black
smithing, horseshoeing, wagon repair
ing and woodwork. Ho is also agent
for the Big Jones mowing machines,
for which A. Ku'nkel & Co., of Pen
dleton, are the agents,
F. W. Boynton has a meat market,
at which he handles a large amount
of fresh meats. He has been In busi
ness four years and his trade extends
as far as Pilot Rock. He puts up his
own ice the first of tho year from
Camas creek and It Is a splendid qual
ity. In February the Ice Is several
Inches In thickness and he has no
trouble In putting up enough to last
from one season to another
Uktah has a saw mill with large
capactly, which Is not In operation at
H. H. McReynolds runs the Uklah
hotel and the livery stable. These
are two of the best Institutions of the
kind In the county. Mr. Huston has
been In the business for four years,
though he has lived In the Camas
Prairie country for more than 20
years, and operated' the stage line
between Pendleton and Uklah for a
number of years. The hotel proper
ty alone cost more than $3500. He Is
able to entertain all travelers that
come this way, as well aB provide
comfortable quarters for teams.
Among the coming towns of the In
land Empire, Ukiah will not be left
behind. She has the country to back
her, and with a splendid corps of live
business men to develop her resources
and keep her well to the front her
growth cannot be otherwise than
rapid, both as to population and

The Comedy-Drama, "On the Stroke
of 12," at the Frazer.
The patrons of melodrama in th's
city will have an opportunity of see
ing W. IJ. Lawrence's production of
the sensational comcdy-dramu, "On
the Stroke of 12," the great success
of the past three seasons. The sue
ress of this plcco has proven It a
strong play, abounding In btartllng
scenes aud climaxes and with com
plete new scenic equipment and
greatly strengthened company, It
should be one of tho strongest popu-Ian-priced
attractions on tho road
this year. The play takes Its title
from an attempted escape from pris
on that tho hero makes In tho third
act, and a scene In a counterfeiter's
den Is another novel and exciting In
cident. The scenery Is carried com
plete for the production, and It will
bo among the handsomest shown on
the stage this season. "On the
Stroke of 12" should Insure a packed
house at tho Frazer tonight.
