MATLOCK HAD CHARGE OF
Work of Clearing Was Systematized
Town Will Be Rebuilt, But Large
ly of Brick Believed That the Fin.
at Count Will Show Two Hundred
W. F. Matlock returned last night
from Heppner, where ho has been
since the first news reached hero
that there had been a Hood at that
place. When he was asked for some
thing that would bo of Interest to tho
people concerning his experience
there, he said that the people know
more about the conditions there than
he did himself, for ho had been so
busy that he had not had time to look
around him, and consequently saw
only that which came under his eye
as he went about his tasks.
From the time that Mr. Matlock
left hero, nearly two weeks ago, until
he returned last evening, he had
neither bathed, shaved nor changed
his clothes. He had not had tlmo,
and so great was tho pressure of the
business there that ho had not
thought about it until he was ready
to come home. Tho men there at the
scene of tho flood know less of the
general condition of things than did
the public, for ench is Intent on the
task that is beforo him, anrt did not
hRve time to ask what the next man
was doing. The reporters there would
gather the knowledge of all of tho
workers and thus the outside know
more of the affair thnn the majority
of the men on the work.
When Mr. Matlock first went to the
place he had charge of tho work of
handling and tagging all of the bag
gage that was found, and the gener
al oversight of all of the property
tbnt was brought In as It was found
by the searchers. Trunks ami boxes
of goods and all things of that char
acter were brought In and the con
tents examined. From something in
them the owners could generally bo
determined, and they were then tag
ged and put aside to nwalt tho call
of tho persons to whom they belong
ed, or the call or tho persons who
were the nearest of kin. By. this sys
tematic handling1 of the "property
along the course of the flood much
of value was saved that otherwise
would have been lost.
Workmen In Three Gangs.
Tho workmen there were divided
Into three big gangs or divisions
one from Portland under tho general
suiervision of N. A. Davis; one com
prising the Pendleton contingent, un
der Mr. Berkeley, and the other from
Heppner and the vicinity, under Mr.
Matlock. After tho first few days ho
took charge of tho men and has been
thus engaged until his return, 11
was thought best by those In charge
to now leave the work In the hands
of the Heppner people and allow them
to reap the benefit of the labor, and
for this reason the men from tho out
side were recalled, and at present all
or the men are from that place and
the surrounding country.
The town is In good condition and
the work there has been thorough
nnrl BVRtBinntlc. Most of the work
now to do Is below the town, In the
drirts that extend below. There are
miles or these and some of mem win
nniw ho irnnp nvpp TIirv are wedired
into all kinds of shapes, and the worn
is slow and hard.
The people or the town are not dis.
couraged by the calamity, and will re-
l,n tl.n limn nx fast or la Dossible.
.Most of tho bulldingB that are put up
In the future win ne ot oncK, bo uiui
when the town is again rebuilt it will
be modern and substantial.

M.. Mntl, whn thlnkx that the
number will not bo rive over or live
under that amount. The bodies that
are being recovered now are In a bad
state of decomposition, and It will
not be long beforo they will not be
Mr. Matlock did not think that the
.iiui.lt, uilnii nf thn rnonev that, was
left from the fund would be entrust
ed to a special man, but that It would
be done by the executive cuiiihiuieu
lluiinnpr npnnlfl who Were 111
charge of the work at the present
time. This committee is compoeu 01
Mr. Gilliam, the mayor, Mr. Shutt, the
sheriff, and Georgo Conner, well
known as a banker. These men will
have charge of the work from now on
and will handle all of tho funds.
From now on it Is but a question of
time and energy until the city of
Heppner will be tne same 111
i iinniniun no it was before the
storm, though it will never recover
from the shock of tho calamity.
