GERMANS IN A HURRY.
Party of Tourists Fall to Keep Their
Appointment at Walla Walla.
Thero was, perhaps, no more sadly
disappointed man in Walla Walla yes
terday, than General Agent Burns,
of tho O. II. & N., when ho learned
that tho special train bearing the
party of German agriculturists would
only tarry In Walla Wlla 25 minutes.
So much advertisement had been
given tho visit of the Germans to
Walla Walla and so much preparation
had been mado to show tho party the
city and its surroundings to the best
advantage, that the citizens were dis
gusted when the train pulled out be
fore they had rtiuoed shoulders
against tho "royal farmers."
It seems tho party had spent so
much time taking photographs of
Willamette valley hop yards, orchards
and creameries, that every stop east
or Portland was cut out to enable tho
train to reach Spokane on tlmo to
catch a special arranged for them
to Yellowstone Park.
Tho party had ngreed to visit tho
famous Blalock fruit farm and spend
a fow hours with tho joyous German
visitors at Walla Walla's saengerfest
and their short stop was a disappoint
ment all around.
Their inspection of Umatilla coun
ty consisted In peeking through
coach windows at tho passing tele
graph polos and so Walla Walla Is
not alono in her sorrow.
