ANTHONY SELECTS EUPHONIOUS
TITLE FOR HIO POSTOFFICE
Rondowa U the orfieial name or
John Anthony's town at the mouih
of the Wallowa river, known here
tofore as River Junction. The name
has something of a Spanish-Indian
sound, but it is in reality a coinage
from the name3 of the two rivers
Grande Ronde and Wallowa. The
name was suggested by Engineer 11.
A. Brandon, who had charge of ths
construction of the Wallowa branch.
Konaowa will besome a postoffice
with Mr. Anthony as postmaster. He
has forwarded his bond to the post
office department and is daily expect
ing the arrival of his commission.
The townslte is in this county, east
of the Grande Ronde river and north
of the Wallowa and of the railroad
track. Several small buildings hr.ve
been erected, in one of which An
thony has a stock of groceries and
another is a bote!.
Whether the new name is better
than the old is a matter of opinion
and so far it is mostly Anthony's
business a3 he constitutes a clear
majority of the population. How
ever, the old name, River Junction,
expressed the location and sounded
busy-UUe you could almost hear the
noise of boiler shops, foundries, etc.;
whereas the new name expresses
nothing fjt an euphonious roll.
1,r- Aiinony li quoted as savin
he potitirm for the postoffice had
2S4 signatures, and that it is ex
pected that thl postoffice will ba
come the distributing point for the
mail for Promise and Grossman in
There are several farming locali
ties adjacent to this place and Ron
dowa will become the railroad supply
point for the same. A few days ago
a meeting was held by those inter
ested and the sum of $2000 was sub
scribed in money, material and labor
for the construct on of a wagon road
toward Promise and Grossman.
