The News Record's great $405 Prize Contest came to a close Satur
day night with the above result. As intimated in last week's paper
there were several surprises but not as nearly everyone guessed in the
race for the grand prize. From requests for i apera from people who
had subscribed but whose names had not been reported, this office knew
there was "'something doing" in places distant from Enterprise, and
the result shows that several hustled to good advantage during the last
week or two.
The Grand Prize winner, Miss Corkins, though handicapped by
being in school, did splendid work and richly deserves the prize. Miss
Flowers who led at the start was later detained at home by illness of i
mother and sister, but her many friends rallied to her aid and her
vote is next largest, entitling her to first choice of the first prizes.

Total $83,533 And Business In
creased In AH Lines.
In business, in building and in
general growth and prosperity Enter
prise made nnre rapid strides in 1907
than in any 12 months in its history.
Only one thing was lacking to give
the proportions of a genuine boom,
and that was the completion of the rail
road. While the progress has been
wonderful the last year it is the
general opinion that 1908 has as good
or better things hi store surely bet'er
the railroad is finished.
Boom In Building.
In no line is the growth and pros
perity more plainly seen than in the
building improvements. A list shows
that $88,000 are invested in new bus-
ness blocks, publio buildings, resl-
euces, and other Improvements,
begun or completed during' the 12
mouths ending December 31.
The following list Is believed to be a
conservative estimate ot cost, though
u each case the sum represents the.
total amount expended on tbe im
provement. Subtracting the cost of
the county high school itsnows a total
of 70,0l)li invested by private enter
prise in buildings and furnishings, truly
large sum for a city of this size:
Business and Publio Buildings.

At the largest and most enthusiastic
meeting of sheepmen ever held in the
county, representatives of Wallowa's
leading industry, at the court house,
Saturday, adopted resolutions asking
that the collection of range dues" be
deferred until August 1, on account of
the scarcity of ready money because of
the panic. The rauge duos are usually
collected April 15, before the sheep go
on the range and when other heavy ex'
penses are being met by sheep owners.
By August 1, most of the wool clip
money will have been received audthe
payment of the range dues will not be
so burdensome. There were over a
coro t( prominent sheepmen present
Saturday morning when President Jay
1W Dobbin called the meeting to order.
Secretary Thomas Morgan was absent
because of illness, and Fred Falconer
was named as secretary pro tern.
By request, Daniel Boyd read th
resolutions adopted by the ststo associ
ation, and the samy were endorsed in
toto by the Wallowa county association.
Aside from the postponing of the
range duos, one of the principal points
was to inaugurate a January campaign
against coyotes, the state body recom
mending' that all sheepmen put out
prison during that month in places
where dogs are not likely to get it, also
that the bounty be increased from f 1.50
