SITE FOR NEW SCHOOL HOUSE.
City Has an Option on a Portion of
Old Poor Farm.
The school board of the city schools
has secured an option from the coun
ty court on the northwest corner of
the old county poor farm grounds.
The tract consists of six lots front
ing on Webb street, and for them the
county court askes the tidy sum of
52.000. This is thought to be too
much for the lots, as there are sev
eral sites offered to the board at a
lower figure, that are more centrally
located than those of the county. The
option holds until Monday, when the
matter will be decided. ,
The people of that part of the city
are a long way irom the nearest
school building, and for some time
they have been asking the board to
take some measures to remedy the
defect. As the board now has funds
sufficient to at least partly pay for
tne land, it Is thought best to make
the purchase at this time. If the
county will sell at a reasonable figure.

Four Graduates of Pendleton High
School Will Go to Eugene This
Four of the five scholars who grad

Noll and Mary Rothrock. of the grad

and will leave for Eugene some time
next week. The graduating class all
made good records in school work In
the public school of this city, and
these members will take a finishing
course for the purpose of beginning

PRIME CATTLE SCARCE.
Buyers Have Combined to Fix Prices
to Suit Themselves.
Andy Murdoch has been in Al'ur.u
several days this week looking for
beet cattle. He Informs us that so
far he has mado but few purchases,
the farmers and ranchmen holding
their cattle too high, and that the
market will not justify the rates
asked. In our opinion the trouble
rests with tho buyers who, we aro in
formed, have effected a combine and
have fixed prices to suit themselves.
The field is divided between the buy
ers, and each fixes the rates he wnl
pay. It is idle talk about a surplus
or beer cattle. Everywhere the range
Is short and prime cattle are scarce.
But whether the cattlemen can break
the combine remains to be seen, and
they, themselves must be their own
judges. Alturas Plaindealer.
