The Two "Sticks "
Just 75 yearn aio a man with a backbone occupied the presidential ciiair,
who waH not afraid of man, devil or money kiiiff. He huh called Old Hickory,
and tho stic.lt ho used on tho self-apppointed giiiird'aiiH of yovenmier.t money,
when lie ordered it, withdrawn from the V. bank, was as hard aa any hickory
switch ti. at ever fell on convict's hack.
In all iiiu years ellirfe iffi'lrew Jackcon defied the wishes of the masters of
high limine;,' no ntaij has, occupied that chair who was hold euough to do as the
hero of New Orleans did not one until now, when another man with backbone,
and who is hot afraid of man, devil or money kinj!F, sits in the White House
nnd represents the plain people. Ho is termed the "Uitr Stick," and Wall Street
gamblers cowered Monday when Roosevelt told them they niul at oncn return
the money borrowed from Western banks or the government deposits would be
withdrawn from New York banks. '.
Kvcn all the .kings of "liijjh finance" cannot continue a money squeeze
unless the government surplus is deposited where they can control it.
It was a long time between presidential "uticka" but another finally came.

., . Come Where Dollars Grow.
The story of Pam Litch is typical ol Wallowa county. A few
years ago herding 6heep; today on the receiving end of a $50,000 deal
for u fraction of his property. ' .
And the rewards are just as great here for intelligent, industrious
men as they were 10 or 15 years ago, and the chance are more
numerous; where one was on the road to wealth then, there are a
Due Credit Given.
Let us hasten to give the O. R. & N. credit. As scon as the
managers of that road read in a hundred Oregon newspapers that its'
local agents were shipping all cash received to headquarters, the order
was piven to discontinue shipments and deposit cash receipts in local
banks. So you see Harriman is not so bad; it was those confounded
local agents who did not have any more sense than ship the money
and not keep (heir mouths shut.
Give the devil his due.
The Wage Earning Army."
There are Jin round numbers, by government rep rts, thirty
one and a half millions 'of workers in the United States. Their yearly
wage averages in excess of $400. It wouW take every dollar of coin
and currency in the .country to pay their wages for three months.
That's the army that could corner the money niiirkat if it was organ-

"Brite And Fair."
Like the bad boy's diary, every day in beautiful prosperous Wal
lowa county is "brite and fair." This applies equally to the sunshiny
weather, or the financial situation. Wallowa county is certainly a
favored spot on this footstool; an independent empire within itself
with climate perfect, soil of unsurpassed richness, people intelligent,,
progressive, industrious, and having iho fullest, confidence in 'their
banks. . .
- " Grand. Prize $165.

Enterprise. The lot is on Litcb street, one block from Depot street.
It is 50x145 feet in size, level, sub-irrigated, all in lawn grass and its
soil is of the. finest. It is situated midway between the business section
of the city and the O. K. & N. railway depot. Leading business arid
professional men have bought lots in Alder View addition 19. lots
sold there in the la6t three months and beautiful homes are being
erected all around the grand prize lot. It is not as good, it is better
than' each. All the lots in the immediate vicinity are held at $165 or
higher one across the street at $300 and an advance will surely
occur before spring. It is needless to tell of Alder View everyone in
the county is familiar with this peerless residence section of Enterprise.
TI ;ere are no undesirable lots there but the grand prize lot is one of the
choicest. It was purchased of Daniel I'oyd, manager of the Wullowa
Law, Land & Abstract company, who owns and has the exclusive sale

Portland bankers could help some in restoring confidence in that
town by a rigid examination to see if thero are any more bank vaults
that contain only $1 for each $72 owed depositors.
As far as making schedule time is concerned the Elgin-Joseph
stage's have tho Harriman railroads beaten 40 miles We don't know
the ills we miss by having no railroad. In the words of that prince of
good fellows, O. J. Roe, "Cheer upl The worst is yet to come."
Town Without a Policeman.-
Enterprise is a law-abiding place. It
has had no regular peace Officer for
years since long before tlx pijMicnt
mayor, Daniel l?oyd, was Vfcr.ted.
There has boon no regularly ornpioyed'
marshal since February. "Undo Joe"
Ilea via acts when occasion requires but
that is so infrequently that ho Is clear
out of practice. The conditions hero'
ore probably unique. Thero is probably
not another trading center of 1000
inhabitants for a big stock country
where thero is no policeman, and no
great need of one.
