Tho railroads are not to spend so
much money on betterments thin
year as during the past year or two.
It seems to be the opinion of the
managers of the different systems
that money will be harder to Ret, anil
that the Income will not Justify those
expenditures which are not absolute
ly necessary for the equipment of
the trains and .track. This may be
because It Is a presidential year, anil
It may be because wise ones near the
center of trade know of some causes
which will tie thlnRH up for a time.

In fact, nothing big will be done In
the way of Improvements. At Hepp
ner new Htock yards will be put In,
bur this Is caused by 'he destruction
of the old ones by the Hood. Tho
new yards will bo larger than the
old, and will be built to accommo
date the largo sheep shipping trade
of that district.
At Ccho tho yards will alHo be Im
proved, and reconstructed In part.
New fences will bo built In place of
those now dilapidated, arid the gen
eral condition of the place made hot
ter for the convenience of the ship
pers. The grounds of both yards will
be graveli'd and drained, doing away
with the mud.

PROHIBITION ANECDOTE.
fetory of a Lone Prohibitionist In
Union County Precinct.
Sneaking of tho coming prohibi
tion campaign In Umatilla county, an
old sottlcr of Union county, who has
lived In Suinmcrvlllo precinct, for 30
years, and who waB In Pendleton
yesterday evening, on tils way home
from a visit to Walla Walla, tells an
Interesting story of the beginning of
the prohibition movement In his
county.
He said that Summorvllle precinct
had always had tho name of being
a hard locality, from tho prohibition
standpoint. It was ono of the strong
democratic precincts, and the old
gentleman, who had voted that ticket
for 4i years, says tho democrats did
not stampede to the prohibition Idea.
When the flrBt prohibition ticket
was nominated In tho county, Sum
morvlllo precinct cast but ono pro
hibition vote. Tho second, and the
third election, In which a prohibition
ticket was In the field, found that one
solitary voto In Summnrvllle, solid
for the straight prohibition ticket
lly this time Summorvllle was thor
oughly amused and began a search
for that lone prohibitionist In tho
midst of Biich a rousing democratic
majority, and ho was finally located.
It proved to he Clark Oliver, a
prominent farmer and reformer, who
subsequently became a leader In the
populist movomont In Union county
and uIro one of ttio foremost reform
ers In the state.
Finally the prohibition movement
spread, oven In Hummorvllio pre
cinct, and while It novor was carried
by that party. It mado a good record
for IIh ndvocates there.
