Those to Whom is Entrusted the Various
Departments - Mr. Leezer a
'"THERE are but few in Morrow oounty,
or, in faot, in Eastern Oregon, who
have ever passed through Heppner that
are not familiar with the City hotel stand,
so long run by E. Minor, of this place, and
otherB. For years it was the leading
hotel of the town. Recently, Mr. W. J.
Leezer, o( this place, took oharge of the
business, and at & great expense baa
placed it, pre-eminently, and to the ex
ception of none, in the list of Heppner's
best hotels. To be sure, it is a frame
building, but from cellar to garret and
office to kitchen, the oarpenter, painter,
paper-baDger and house furnisher have
most liberally applied the tools of their
respective trades till it shines like the
new dollar of our daddies, fresh from
the mint. The offioe, parlors, bedrooms,
kitchen, dining-room, etc, are models of
neatness, spaciousness and oomtort.
Every part has received that attention
neoessary to render it what one would
expect in a first-class hotel.
Mr. W. J. Leezer, the graoious and
accommodating host, is uo stranger in
these parts, having located at Umatilla
Jun. 6, 1871. Mr. Leezer came directly
from his old home in Riishville, Sohuvler
oounty, 111., and immediately embarked
in the tinware and Btove business, con
tinuing up to Jan. 1, 1880, when he oame
to Heppner, resuming his former busi
ness, adding shortly afterward a stock of
hardware. Last June he sold out to bis
partner, P. C. Thompson, and shortly
afterward completed arrangements to
take oharge of the city hotel .
Mr. Leezer was the first treasurer ot
Morrow connty, receiving the appoint-
uieut under Gov. Moody in 1885, whin
the county was first formed He re
cently received another evidence of the
faith of the republicans, at least, by b
