FOR NEW COUNTY ROAD.
W. W. Harrah Circulates Petition
for Road up Wild Horse Creek.
V. W. Harrah Is getting up a pe
tition to circulate In a few days for
a new road up Wild Horse. He will
present It to March terra of county
The proposed road will be a water
grade from Athens and Adams to
Pendleton and will cut out the heavy
hills which have heretofore required
a four horse team to pull a load.
Mr. Harrah says that the proposed
road will not only give a water grade
but it will shorten the distance to
Athena at least one mile.
The road as proposed begins at
the north end of Lee street bridge,
goes up the north bank of the Uma
tilla river and on the north side of
the Hunt track to the Arnold estatf,
crosses both railroads to the south
side of the O. It. & N. track and
thence east to connect with the other
ruad up Wild Horse to Athena, and
Adams. Mr. Harrah says that the
liersons through whose places the
new road will pass will probably
grant right of way.

Explanation of the Free GUessIng
Contest for the Buggy,
The first two persons to take ad
vantage of the guessing contest for
the $100 buggy each today paid $7.j0
for one year on the Dally East Ore-
ccn.an by carrier, and were ctvsn
five luhsecs each.
A good many questions have been
asked lelatlve to this contest and a
few additional words of explanation
may not come amiss.
One of the county ballot boxes has
been secured and sealed In which to
deposit guesses. Tho seals will not
be broken until the 975 receipts have
been Issued. A payment of $1.50 on
any one of the three publications
Dally. Weekly or Semi-Weekly East
Oregonlan, entitles the holder of the
receipt to one guess.
The unknown number consists of
three figures. Each of these three
figures are different. For example.
It may be 034. 231, 047 or any sim
liar number, but It could not be 220,
440, 221, 331, or any such number,
as the same figure Is repeated.
We need not assure our subscrib
ers that this Is a fair, square' contest
and some one of the subscribers will
get a present of a $100 buggy. Drop
into Kunkel's Implement house and
look at It.

Man's Misdeeds Follow Him Where-
ever He Goes ex-Convict Viewed
When Charles Ladd, accused of
robbing the Owl saloon, was dis
missed from custody of tho officers
In Hecorder Fllloon's court yesterday
morning, he gave vent to expres
sions that might well be seriously
considered by young men who are
tempted to start on the downward
path of law breaking, says the
In thanking the court for its kind
treatment, Ladd stated that be 1ld
not hold malice against anyone for
suspecting him of tho crime or cans-
Ine his arrest. "I am a suspicious
character," he said. "I have erved
a term In the penitentiary, and a
man who has once been a convict
ever afterward Is viewed with sus
picion. He is looked upon as a
criminal, and wherever he goes. If a;
crime Is committed, he Is tho first
to be suspected. An ex-convlct is
etor a branded man."
Whatever J-add's .ife, since he
was discharged irom the Oregon,

has been exemplary or not, ills
statement that an "ex-convict was
always vloved with suspicion," was
truo and camo from actual exper
ience. It should .serve as a warn

ed to violate tho law, for once con
