The gross valuation of propertv in Wallowa county is sFSitt.SOO, and the taxable property is !jiir0,l!)'J. As the county is not largely in debt, this it ii very fair showing. Who liilled Billy Sims' wheelbarrow with that general assortment of agricultural implements the other dav? Bettor look a little out for Hilly wont stand too much fun, hoys. Mr. Springer has commenced tho building of his residencein north I'liion. Sisson, Ostrander and Kibbo are the builders. When completed it will add much to the appearance of his proper- , ty-. Parties out from the mines report the Pine Creek road in excellent con dition for light wagons. The state part of the road is all that, needs re pairing, to make, the road good for heavy teams. Prof. Aulguiro, thinks that the young ladies of Union are as good looking, intelligent and well behaved as any he has found in the valley, but thinks he cannot say as much for the young men. Barrett's circus, which is to exhibit in La Grande next week, is pronounced by the press, almost without an except ion, to be a bilk of the first water. ' Notwithstanding this is it is very prob able that our people will contribute their dollars to it without stint. Tho post offices between here and Cornucopia have been established, and Mr. Dunham Wright ordered to put on temporary servico between Union and Medical Springs' Other arrangements will soon be made aud we will have a mail servico direct botween hero and Cornucopia. The fact that the La Grande- bank, sinco its organization, has made loans to the amount of .fGO.OOO leads the Ga zette to conclude that La Grande is to become "the financial center of this section." Why, bless you, brother ' Eckly, wo find upon investigation that ..the First National Bank of this city, Minting tho same period of timo made loans to tho amount of $75,000, besides we have several private banks, and money lenders. We are not puffed up about it, either. Wo aro glad, how over, to note the prosperity of La Grande, as well as the other towns of tho county. Patrick II. irrilloran, one of the mombers elect of tho Washington Ter ritory legislature, was found dead near his cabin at Seattle a fow days ago. It seems that Ilalloran wanted to mar ry one HodiuKton's daughter, but was opposed by Mr. 11. Sinco that timo tj, rocks' etc., have been thrown onto Mr. U s, house and through tho windows. This was kopt tin for some, when Bed- ington and a man by the naino of Gallagor were on watch, when the rook-thi owing began again. The two men followed some men to the cabin of Ilalloran and a quarrel began, re sulting in Iliilloran's death. E'tCII'X'uM.

Our public school under the cotm of teachers now employed is in a fair way to be of some benefit, if the patrons will take the in terest that they xhould take in matters of education. Tho fourth grade, or Grammar department, under Prof. Owen, who 1j principal, seems to bo in ii good, healthy condition and we judge from the interest the pupils manifest, this department will prove a success. The third grade, presided over by Mrs. Owen, is quite well pat ronized and we believe that Mrs. Owen understands what id a i doing, and will, no doubt, lie successful in her ef forts to instill a love for information in her scholars. The second grade', Mrs. B. F. Wilson, teacher, has many bright faced pupil who teem interested in their work, and all seem well pleased with their tccier. The first or pri mary grade, the most important one in any graded school, and the one in which the most competent teacher should have charge, (and Ik1 well sup plied with cradles) is presided over by Miss lila Davis. Miss Davis is pos sessed with many ot those fine quali ties to rcqusite in the teacher for the wee folks. She has, beyond doubt, the hardest department in the school, but knowing well her talents and kind dis position, together with her peculiar manner of managing the little folks, we predict for her good results in her department. 11 12 Got. Last Tuesday as Mrs. Frank Mitchell, of North Union, was doing some chores for her sister-in-law who was absent from home, she heard ii slight noise about tho boue. At first she thought it was chickens in tho woodshed, but bearing it again thought it was something else. She started around the house and when on the opposite sido of the house discov ered si pair of boots going in at the window. Knowing well that boots of their own free act and will did not perform such feats, stepped closer and found ii man in the house. Mrs. Mitchell suddenly became brave, aud very firmly told that gentleman with boots on to get. out of that house or she would blow tho top of his worthless cranium oil mstanter. I he man said he would go right awav oil', and the way he got out of that window and left for other and more congenial fields was ii caution. He had raised the window and put his roll of blankets in the house and said he was just going to sleep there, thai, was all he intended to do. This probablv is what ho did in tend to do as it was about 10 o'clock in tne morning aim the nouse is onlv a few feet from the loadside, it is not liKeiy mat it lie intended to steal any thing that he would have put his blankets in tho house at that, time o day. Me was piooaoiy m-unic, out lie got badly tooled out of his nap. Don t Di:i,.y. Now is the time when the peop.o of Union want to be stir themselves, and rustle for the fu ture enterprise that awaits their bid ding. J rilling with time, when wo should have got right down to work. left us m the lurch at one time, and unless we go to work, it may leave us again. It will not do for us to sit idlv by and see enterprises slip through our fingers and out of our reach, when we can secure them if wo will. Let our own business men rest for a few hours and devote their energies to the build ing up of our town's interests and you will lose nothing by the sacrifice. Oth er places build up, get manufactories started, secure other businesses, but their citizens work to that end, and work persistentlv until thev have se cured it. It is a well known fact that wo are too slow, and now that an en terprise iu knocking at our very doors, uul yet we say "we'll see." This wait ing wont do, gentlemen. It never did anything giand except to let grand opportunities pass us by. What's thk Mattjci: with Them?- It is learned irom dill'eront resources that the report w..s circulated in iht- ion this week that the machine shoos and everything else here belonging to the railroad company, were to be re moved fiom La Grandu and taken to Pendleton or Umatilla. La Grande people didn't hear anything about it until after the excitement. -La Grande Journal. In order to ease our simple minded brother, and for tho informa tion of our friends in La Grande, we will say that no such renort was circu lated here, and that wo had no intima tion that Mich ii move is on foot, till tho Journal arrived yesterday. It seems to us that tho good people of La Grande are prone, occasionally, to get ingmened at their own shadows, and invariably blame Union for all their tioubles. We do not des.irvo this. The rise or downfall of La Grande cannot affect Union in the least, aud coiiso--quently we cannot have any animosity towards its people, except occasionally to an individual or two like tho snipe wno wroto tho above. Findings Against thk O it C The railroad commission has made its find ings against tho Oregon it California road in tho case of B. A. Witzel vs tho O. it 0. Tho findings are, that Witzel shipped a carload of wheat from Tan gent, seven mik-s, to Albany, and was compelled to pay 10 for the same; that the charge was unreasonable; that a reaoriiablo charge would bo $8 ; as a conclubion of law, the respondent is indebted to the petiouer in the turn of fS; and therefore it isordcml that $S, excess charges, bo refunded to Witzel, on or before Kciitember Hflth. ami that iv'ra.hw . .u;.7f.i J. i : notice thereof and n certified tho finding.

Wo are glad to hear it. W. T. Wright, Jno. T. Wright and J. II. Smith left for Cornucopia the foro part of the week, on business con nected with their mining interests. They have valuable mines in that camp and no doubt will receive good results from their investment. They will probably return to-day. Lkcti;i!i:. Prof. G. M.
