INTEREST IN O. R. &
There Is probably no man who

has bought a half interest in the

Music lovers in Enterprise arc dis
cussing plans looking to the organiza
tion of a Choral society to Include
singers from every part of Wallowa
county, the intention being to unite
the various sections Into one grand
chorus of at least 150 voices, in a
summer music festival extending ovoi
two or three days. If the singers
of the county will unite Jn the mat
ter, it is proposoJ to engage Pro',
oyer, of Portland, who will give his
undivided attention to the training of
the chorus , during the months of
July and August. The good results
of such training by a man of Prof.
Boyer's exceptional ability are so ap
parent as to require no demonstra
tion, Prof. Bpyer is now at work with
the Portland chorus for the annual
spring festival to be hold in that
city in March next. The chorus num

An assessment of one-half cent a
head on the 192,630 sheep in the

$1.50 bounty on coyote scalps. It Is
believed this fund will be swelled by
about $1000 from the county, which
was given by the wool men several
years ago in the expectation that the
state would give a bounty. That act
of the legislature was turned down
and the money contributed by the
Wallowa woolgrowers sent to our

it. The statutes provide the court
may at its option give a bounty, and
