The Fourth of July celebra
tion in Echo last Saturday was a
grand success in every way.
The day was an ideal one for
the occasion and the city was
thronged with visitors from the
country and nearby towns.
Many of the visitors brought
baskets well filled with edibles
and enjoyed picnic dinners in
the cool shade, while others
satisfied the cravings of the in
ner man at, the different hotels.
Much credit is due the Fourth
of July Committee and F. T.
George, marshal of the day,' for
the able manner in which the
program was so satisfactorily
carried out. There was not a
hitch anywhere, no disturbance
of any kind, and a good old
fashioned time was had by
The parade was formed at
9:30 o'clock, headed by Marshal
of the Day F. T. George, and
marched through the principal
business streets. The business
men were well represented in
the parade by pretty, attractive
floats, while many others joined
in the procession on foot, horse
back and in carriages.
The Goddess of Liberty car
was drawn by four white horses,
handsomely decorated and driven
by Jerome Gulliford. The car
was covered witn white canopy
and trimmed in red and blue,
and with the stars and stripes
made a very pretty and pleasing
effect. On a platform in the
center of the car sat the Goddess
of Liberty, Miss Ruth Strahtn,
dressed in rich white silk and a
beautiful crown and wreath on
her head, while by her side was
the conventional Uncle Sam,
well represented in the person
of Clarence Springston. Around
the car were seated little girls
representing the different states ' every wayf and wns attended by

many residences were hand

much in evidence with flrecrack

old and young alike, entered
into the spirit of the occasion
for a jolly good time.
The ball game in the after
noon, Echo vs. Umatilla, proved
one of the most interesting fea
tures or the program, and was
witnessed by far the largest
gathering of people ever yet as
sembieu on the ball grounds in
Echo. The game was an excit
ing contest from start to finish,
and after a hard fought battle
Echo carried off the laurels by a
score of 3 to 5

good game of ball, and it is to

The Proposition Discussed at a
Meeting of Echo Business

MANY BENEFITS TO BE DERIVED
Another Meeting to be Held in the

Permanent Organization Will

The Alfalfa Meal Mill is prov
ing quite a prominent enterprise
in Echo and gives employment!
to a good many people.
At a meeting of some of the
business men of Echo Tuesday
evening, the proposition of or
ganizing a commercial club
this city was discussed.
The direct benefits to be do
rived from such an organization
are manifold, and if the proper
spirit is shown and interest taken
by our citizens, much good will
result in the future upbuilding
of Echo and in the development
of the rich fruit and agricultural
resources of this prolific section.
Heretofore the burden and ex
pense of sending out descriptive
matter has been borne by a few,
and naturally the work of ad
vertising our resources and the
opportunities offered here for
remunerative investments has
not received the attention that
it should. To properly adver
tise and give the matter the at
tion it deserves can only be ac
complished through concerted
action on the part of our citizens,
and to insure this concerted rc
tion it will require an organiza
tion, with stated meetings for
discussion and taking action on
important matters that may
come up, looking to the advance
ment of the best interests of
our thriving city.
The half has not been told and, 1
