Visitors Mesdames Holmes, DePue,
The line-up of land seekers for the
Wallowa reserve at the land office in
La Grande dispersed Monday morning.
Forty-one prospective filers took places
in the line Sunday night, and had
made preparations for a 30 days siege,
as the land is not open for entry until
October 30. A tent covering a large
portion of the sidewalk was erected and
occupied over night.
The primary cause of the melting
away of the line-up was air outsider
who sprang the ruling governing the
selection of claims, Avhich reads in
substance as follows: "No person will be
permitted to gain, or exercise any right
whatever, under any occupancy of land
prior to September 30, as all such pro
ceedings are forbidden by law."
As the landseeker could not be on
his land on the day of opening and
holding down the sidewalk in front of
the land office at the same time, and
further as the city authorities held a
line-up for 30 days in front of business
houses was a nuisance, a compromise
was made, numbers being issued to the
landseekers in order of their places in
the line. These numbers were turned
into the land office and the settlers
"hiked" for the land.
Little local interest is taken in '.the
opening for although about 35,000 acres
are inclnded few desirable locations are
in it and nearly all of them have already
been squatted on.
Oat of the line of 35 who waited for
the opening of the Heppner land, 34
were successful in filing on the claim of
their choice at La Grande last week
Among the successful ones was Miss
M. E. Glidden of this county, who re
turned to "Enterprise and went on to her
homestead near Chico 'the first of the
