The Oregon Woolgrowers association
will meet at The Dalles November 12.
The Wallowa Count v organization will
not hold a formal meeting for the pur
pose of appointing,b:it delegates w ill go
from here to The Dalles.
Among the vital subjects for discus
sion will be -the government s proposi
tion to lease the public ranges. While
tho Kurkett bill was under considera
tion by Congress last winter a commit
tee cf western stockmen was named by
the president to meet with the public
lands committee of Congress and a ses
sion was held in Washington.
The preposition will again be brought
ilpV for the ca3tevn people have the be-
lief that western stockmen are being
given Something for nothing hy tho" gov
ernment, and there is a wide demand
that charges bo made for using the
range. It seems impossible for the
western senators to block the measure
and if eo it is up to tho stockmen to set
that the measure as passed is as well
adapted to tho conditions as possible.
At The Dalles meeting this subjec
will be discussed, and some lino of ac
tion agreed upon so that the Oregon
congressional delegation car. have some
tiling to go by. Among other feature
connected with the proposition of leas
ing is the question of whether or not
the ranges may bo fenced, the term of
years for which leases may bo made
leasing prices, etc.
Aside from the above subject th

New York City will have to let go.
With great shipments of wheat.
hog, cattle and other Western pro
ducts adding every day to the debt
that city owes to !.li- West, the mouej
is bound to come. The only reason
there has not been a wide-spread panic
is the good sense of Western people,
who know their hanks are sound as a
dollar and started no runs. New York
has tried to hog all the money of the
country hut the attempt will only
work harm to that city.
The governor lias eontMiued the legal
holidays this week and the people of
the state are helping by using checks
in the transaction of all business where
possible. The Wallowa county banks
are open every day and the deposils
are growing. Willi big sums accumu
lating to the credit of Wallowa county
people there is no disposition to be
come) panicky in this neck of woods.
Ovfcr $3000 worth of hogs were sent
to market from Enterprise this week.
