Heppjteb will hare an opportunity
very soon to vote on the water question.

Acoordwo to the Oreeonian, Judge
Bennett is likely to be the democratic
nominee for congress from the second
The fire commissioners of Portland, in
s recent report, give as one of the prin
cipal causes for fires, the explosion of
ooal oil lamps, which danger would be
eliminated tore by the noe of electrioity
for illuminating purposes.
The Gazette acknowledges the receipt
of au invitation to attend the celebration
of the one hundredth anniversary of the
disoovery of the Columbia river by Capt.
Kobt. Gray. May 11, 1792, to be' held in
Astoria, May 10, 11 and 12, 1892.
Bfbakino of ' the next congressman
from the second district of Oregon, the
Walla Walla Union says: "W. E. Ellis,
one of the republican nominees for con
gress in Oregon, has some acquaintances
in Walla Walla who regard him highly.
He is a resident of Heppner, and has
been the successful prosecuting attorney
of that judicial district."
Hilluiiobo is highly pleased with her
water and light system, put in by Mr.
H. V. Gates recently. That little oity
has grown more sinoe the completion of
the plaut thai) for years past. We want
no bnom at Heppner, bnt do desire pro
tection, and that the town should avail
itself of those natural advantages whioh
its magnificent location gives it.
Should Mr. Gates put in the water
and light plant here, nearly all the labor
on same will be done by our home peo
ple, all material that can be bought here
will be naed. After its completion, the
repairs to machinery and extension of
mams from time to time will give em
ployment to many bands, and not less
than 600 cords of wood will be consumed
To Uko. Pattehhon, of the Heppner
Gazette, we say in all friendliness that
the Ti mes-Mouutaineer favorably men
tioned the name of Hon. W. B. Ellis for
congress in lH'JO before Hon. Binger
Hermann was nominated. But this is of
no consequenoo, the T.-M. iitid Gazette
will do their utmost to elect Mr, Ellis
the first congressman of the second oon
gresnional distriot in Oregon. T.-M.
It is Biiid that a railroad can be bailc
aorons the tablelands, back from the
Columbia, between The Dalles, and
Cclilo. If such is the cohh, it oertaiuly
adds another feature to the open river
question, aud plaocs it in the power of
the state to put in its own portage. It
would bave no interference from the
Union I'aoiflo, because the portage right
ofnvay would be far from the U. P.'s
Now the demoorats should nominate
Hon. James Jialey for congreas and the
"tall sycamore of Morrow" will not be
iu it in June. Haley ia just the man to
represent Eastern Oregon in oongress
and if nominated the people will un
doubtedly look to their interests and see
that he is oleoted. Baker Democrat.
Haley is the strongest man the demo
crats could put np, but he could hardly
dig up a pole long enough to harvest the
persimmon against W, K. Ellis.
Thkiik are too many people- in this
world who want to edit the newspaper,
dlolate its locals and set a price on its
advertising space. They would rnise
h 1 if a newspaper man would say what
they had to sell their calves for, or the
right figures for a oorner lot. There
would be an everlasting howl if the
printer chose to dictate the value of
Bugar, nailB, oalioo and other truck of
like nature. The printer knowt more
people than any man in the couutry .
State Senator Ralky, of Pendleton,
tells the local interviewer that be has
been at no time, and will not he, a can
didate fur congress iu the sooond dia
triot. He is not seeking a renomiuatlon
for state senator, nnd will not sooept it
it if ex State Treasurer Webb desires it.
Mr. Kaley thinks Ellis may receive about
his party vote, but that he is not espec
ially stroug, but that the democrats, in
order to have a chance of winniug, will
have to put np their strongest man.
Portland Telegram.
Tr.K manwho-won't-give-athing, when
some great aud laudable undertaking or
enterprise is proposed, is Ihns sized np
by Peter, the Poet, in the Klamath Star :
"The won't give-a-thing man boba up
hero and thero oooasionally to show how
cleverly he sucks eggs. He makes his
hens rustle for their feed and growls be
cause they eat grasshoppers. He turns
his bogs out to shift for themselves and
growls because they dou't fatten. He
keeps away from and damns every new
enterprise, and when the enterprise pans
nut well he growls bcoaime ho is not do
ing as well as others. The mnn who 'will
not give a thing' is the aversion of every
enterprising man on earlb."
Mil. Ellis is running for O'ingress on
a platform that is "heartily iu favor of"
the DolpU Mitohell boat-railway sohenie,
which, to say the least, is experimental,
aud will take many years to oomplete, if
it is practical at all, but nbiili says not
a word iu fuvor of a porluue road, to be
built either by the federal government
or the state, aud hence must be opposed
to it. W hat do the people of Eastern
Oregon tbink of this? Portland Tele
gram. The people of Eastern Oregon
know Ellis. Tbey also know something
about Springer's free wool and proteoted
woolens; that which practioally says the
wool grower doesn't need any protection,
bat the manufacturer does. Tbey also
(mi Ellis to be for an "open river," to
be brought about in the most practical
way. !
Hot Griddle Cakes.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder possesses a pec-liar
merit not approached by that of any other baking powder.
It produces the hot buckwheat, Indian or wheat cakes, hot
biscuit, doughnuts, waffles or muffins. Any of there tasteful
things may be eaten when hot with impunity by persons of
the most delicate digestive organs. Dr. Price's Cream Bak
ing Powder leavens without firmentation or decomposition.
In its preparation none but the purest of cream of tartar, so
da, etc is used, and in such exact equivalents as to always
guarantee a perfectly neutral result, thereby giving the natu
ral and sweet flavor peculiar to buckwheat and other flour
that may be used, the natural flavor so much desired and ap
preciated by all.. The oldest patrons of Dr. Prices powder tell
the story, that they can never get the same results from any
other leavening agent, that their griddle cakes, biscuits, etc.
are never so light and never taste so sweet or so good as
when raised with Dr. Prices Cream Baking Powder.
The people of Heppner will shortly
have an opportunity of voting bonds foi
a system of waterworks. If any town in
the northwest actually needs water tot
fire protection and domeetio use, it in
Heppner. Our people are taking mort
risk than good Lusiuess sagacity would
dictate under any circumstacoes; out
rates of insurance are entirely too high ;
oar wells are impure from the proximity
of cesspools, privy vaults and stable
yards, sooner or later to end in an awful
In the matter of fire protection there
is not a brick building iu town that de
mands less protection than the rows ol
frames, though, of course, there is less
likelihood of a conflagration starting in
the former than tbe latter. But should
a general fire break ont our people will
learn that nothing will stop its oourse
bnt plenty of wator. The town is able
to cope with small fires, bnt is absolutely
unprotected otherwise,
Heppner's citizens are progressive.
Tbey are anxious to see the town grow.
They are particularly desirous that out
side capital shall seek investment in our
midst. But will any sane man seek a
field where he is likely to lose more than
he oould possibly make under the most
favorable circumstances? The Gazette
thinks not. He will go where he haa
some protection offered to invest his cap
ital. It is the desire of the town to provide
an adequate water supply as soon as
possible, and to this end it is hoped that
tbe people will give tbe council tbe right
to raise the remaining $15,000, tbe limit
of bonded indebtedness whioh the oity
can assume nuder the present charter.
Regarding the proposition of Mr. H.
V. Gutes, with Borne trivial alterations, it
is by far the best proposition ever
offered ns. Fifteen thousand dollars is
not a mi indent amount to put in a water
system tor an purposes, in met, it is
hardly enough to put in a plant for fire
proteotion only, which would be a dead
weight to the town, bringing in no in
come. We could then do nothing fur
ther till the next session of the legisla
ture, provided that body would amend
tbe obarter, to allow a larger indebted
ness, and the town would vote tbe bonds
Tbe Gazette in of the opinion that it is
to our interests to allow Mr. Gates to put
in waterworks. We turn know just how
much expense will be the town's portion
each year. He is a practical man and
evidently knows more about running a
plant than our town of Heppner. There
is no nssuranoe that the town can save a
cent by managing it themselvei, nnd the
amount of indebtedness would be les
sened greBtly by accepting Mr. Gates'
Mr. Gates also wishes to add an eleo-
trio light plant. There is not a business
man in Heppner who would not save
money by using eleotrio lights instead of
ooal oil, besides, the risk being much
less and lighta very much better. Our
streets are poorly lighted, a very poor
recommendation for a town like Hepp
ner. Lights for residences would oosl
four-bits apiece per month.
A good water and light plant would
raise the value of Heppner property, be
oause it would be more desirable. Let
all taxpayers look into the matter care
fully and do what is for Heppner's beat
interests. Remember, the money will
be needed whether the town accepts Mr.
Gates' proposition or not; and, too, that
uo contracts have been made, nor will
be entered into till satisfactory to the
town council.
The l'eudleton Tribune, in sneaking of
Binger Hermann, of the first district
and his chances to be returned to con
gress, says this of the second district
His associate, when he returns to the
fifty-third congress, will be Hon. W. K
Ellis, of Heppner, and no higher oomph
nient can be paid this gentleman than to
express the opinion that the second din.
triot will be no less worthily represented
than the first. Mr. Ellis is not a novice
at publio service. He is a gentleman of
high oharaoter, iu the fullness of man
hood, a lawyer of ability and experience
and as a legislator will be in touch with
the people, conversant with the needs of
hi ilintriot and loyal to the principles of
his party. He ia likely to receive in the
eastern conuties more than his party
Ma. Ellih, the republican nominee for
oongress in this district, is rather a good
looking man, about six feet tall, and
weighs nearly 200 pounds. If elected,
he will silently aud gracefully adorn a
wat for two years. If tbe people of tbe
distriot want to elect a man "on his
shape," Ellis will do very well. As it is
not an Adonis, but a statesman, we are
looking for, Mr. Ellis will have to take s
baok seat. Portland Telegram.

A Warning- Don't Use Big Words.
In promulgating esoteric cogitations or
articulating superficial sentimentalities
and philosophical or psychological ob
servations, beware of platitudinous pon
derosity. Let your statements possess a
clarified conciseness, oompaated compre
hensiveness, ooalescent oonBietency and
concentrated cogency, Eschew all
conglomerations of flatulent garrulity,
jejune babblement and asinine affecta

tLe superiority of the Wisconsin Central
Lines, and why you and so many others
use this thoroughfare from St. Paul and
Minneapolis and Dulutb end Aililand to
Milwaukee, Chioago and points east and

breakers. Lot your extemporaneous
descantings and unpremeditated expa
tiations nave intelligibility and vera-
oions vivacity, without rhndomontade or
thrasonical bouibaat. feedulously avoid
all polysyllabio profundity, pBittaceouc
vacuity, yeutriloqual verbosity and

tendres, prurient jocosity and pestiferous
profanity, obsenrent or apparent. Jn

PoRTtAJrn, Apr. 19. It 18 probable
that Judge A. S. Bennett, of The Dalles,
will be chosen as the nominee of the sec
ond district democrats for congress,
though at this hour, 230, p. m., that part
ot the convention's work had not been
reached. It would seem, that since Sen.
Raley was not in the race, that Judge
Bennett's only competitor would be ,T.
H. Slater, of Union county, who stands
high in the estimation of Eastern Orego
nians. -
The first district will probably choose
Senator Veaoh as their candidate. Hon.
J. K. Weatherford is "in it" for the su
preme bench, though early this morning
there wa- some show of strong opposi
tion from Eastern Oregon. As they
bave not furnished a member for the su
preme benoh for years, if at all, in the
history of Oregon, they would seem to
have some claims on the convention for
that important nomination.
Hon. Henry Blackman will probably
be chosen to represent (be democracy of
his section at the Chicago convention.
Blackman is such an aggressive politi

trouble in getting "thar."
Jeff Myers, the baby politician fiom
tbe "Forks of the Santiam," is here, but
has no congressional aspirations, be
says. However, it is the general opin
ion that be will be chosen as a delegate
to the national convention.
lour of Morrow County's delegates
are here, H. Blaokman, C. A. Bhea,
Thos. Qnaid and Wm. Hughes They
are representative men, and are mo.e
than tie average of the onuvention. As
a member of the board of equalization,
Hon. W. Hughes has jjiven entire satis
faction, having the reputation of being
the shrewdest man of the lot. Hie nom
ination for that office is conceded.
