The promoters of the town, being In
control of all the property upon which
It Is to be located, went to great pains
to lay off what they consider an Ideal

from the parking of the streets to the

that now remains Is to "watch It
Main street runs north and south
and parallel to that thoroughfare are
O'liiii-n, Ilarrinian, Barbara, Glen

the fact that two of the principal
thoroughfares arc named in honor of
railroad officials and two others In
honor of two popular ennduetnts, the
new town is not to bo a child of the

Page ary all honored with streets

The center avenue crossing Main
street Is Coe p. yen no, rn 1 parallel to
this is Roosevelt avenue, Wood ave

the pint funning diagonally across the
southwest part of the city and runs
parallel to the O. It. & X. railroad
tiacks. This is Sherman street.
At the Intersection of Coe avenue

It is believed here that there arc
some mistakes In the above dispatch.
In the first place it Is believed that the
land referred to is located in the south
eastern corner of the Umatilla reser
vation and that it was given to the
Fmatllla Instead of the Wyandotte
Indians. If this Is the land referred
to, it was not alloted at the time the
remainder of the reservation was for
the reason that It was unsurveyed and
was too rought to be surveyed. This
land never has been surveyed and Is
valuable only for grazing or timber.

will soon be called upon to decide
who are the regularly elected mem
