KELTNER GAINS ONE VOTE
OVER THE PRECEDING
The contest of the aldermanic
vote cast In the recent city election,
brought by S. D. Keltner, resulted
In a recount of the entire city vote
of that election, Tuesday, In the of
fice of the sheriff, and the election
of Mr. Keltner. : According to the
recount, v.hleh Is the third count
already made, Mr. Keltner gained
one vote over the council figures,
rj-aking hiin 76 Instead of 75 hlch
was- the council count or the second
count. The whole vote for the three
counts, and the changes, stands now

Votes Protested. .
Some four or five votes ln the i
contest count, although counted, (were I
protested, and will be carried' Into 'J
court to determine whether or not
they shall be counted or thrown out.
The mayoralty contest presents a
humorous phase, In -that the con
tent count for the alderraanlc vote
resulted In a tie vote for mayor.
Mr. Burleigh holds a certtf
lcate of election, and It Is said that
the time has expired n which a con
test for the vote might be brought.
It .would 'seem, that being the case,
that the Issuance of the certificate
would determine the mayoralty hold
er. While both Mr. Graves and Mr.
Burleigh wish to serve their city,
yet neither is- an "otl hunter" and
it U not likely that either would
"make the fur fly" to hold the. may
oralty chair. , "

THREE COUNTS OF
THE BALLOTS MADE
Fraud Evident by the Great
the Several Counts
But by Whom?
Enterprise. Oregon. June 1. '10.
To the Common Council of the city of
I herewith tender mv resignation as
Mayor of the city of Enterprise to take
ettect immediately, which resignation
is based upon the reasons hereunto an
nexed. Very respectfully.
J. A. BURLEIGH.
REASONS FOR RESIGNATION.
The right to hold an office under the
constitution and laws of our country is
based upon a prpper exercise of the
elective or appointive power. Out of
the election held on the 3rd dav of Mav
last in this city a grave question has
arisen as to whether or not the wishes
of a majority of the voters of the city
have been properly expressed; and the
count of the ballots on yesterday, in
the contest proceedincs initiated for th
purpose of determining who is entitled
to the orhce of councilman, has brought
into question my election to the office
of mayor, a matter that prior to that
time was not questioned.
As you are aware, the count of the
ballots as made by the iuderes and clerks
of election immediately after the close
or the polls gave a majority in my favor
of 23 votes. That 24 hours later the
vote was recounted by yourselves and
my election was officially determined
by 'a majority of one vote. Acting up
on that determination of veur body. I
called for, received and accepted a cer
tificate of election and took the requir
ed oath of office.
..In the count made yesterday in the
contest proceedings, by counting sev
eral vote? that showed erasures and
changes, some quite plainly and others
but dimly, and rejecting one vote that
bore a mark of identification, it was
made to appear that the vote was a tie
on' the office of mayor, and if that count
is accurate, by counting the vote that
was rejected, which was for Mr. Graves,
and which I really think should be
counted, for the. evidence showed that
it was not marked for an illegal pur
pose, but thoughtlessly, it gives Mr.
Graves, a majority of one vote, and
clearly entitles him to the office.
It is very evident that a number of
the ballots showed that they had been
erased and changed, some very clearly
some not very clearly, and whether or
not enough had been changed so clev
erly as to defy detection and account
for the wide discrepancy between
counts, is an, open question; and wheth
er the ballots so marked and changed
should be counted or rejected is anoth
er question. That there' were gross
frauds committed In connection with
the ballots after the close of the polls
and before the official count was made
is not questioned by any one at all fa
miliar with the matter, but iustwho
did it Nand how it was done is a ques
tion lor debate: but this fact does ap
pear, however,' that if it is possible to
detect the guilty parties, they should
be brought to justice. v
The question of who shall be m'avor
or councilman of the city is of but little
importance, but the purity of the bal
lot and, the free and uncorrupted choice
of the people is a matter of very ereat
importance to every citizen of the city
For the reason that all theae circum
stances taken together, and the ir
reconcilable difference in the several
counts that have been made, leave a
question as to the actual result of the
election, I feel impelled by a sense of
duty to Mr. Graves, myself and to the
voteraof the city to tender mv resig
nation at this time before entering upJ
on the duties of the office, and would
have done so before this date, had
there been any question of my election;
and I trust that the council will take
immediate action upon this resignation
before I am called upon to perform any
official duty.' Respectfully submitted,
' J. A. BURLEIGH.

NEW COMPANY ORGANIZED TO
TAKE CARE OF SUMMER
A company recently organized has
already begun extensive prepara
tions, to make Wallowa lake one of
the greatest inland summer resorts
in the' west. The company 4s com
posed of J. T. Re8&h of Joseph, J.
aosa Leslie and J. P. Egensperger,
the latter - shortly from the east.
Already 75 teats are on the ground
it the disposition of those who ar
rive at the lake for a summer out
ing, and various amusements! are be
ing put In. As soon as possible a
large hotel will be erected and cot
tages as well as tents will 'be built
for the accommodation of visitors..
See Big Future t
In an interview with Mr. Resch) of
Joseph an Enterprise Press repre
sentative was glveni to understand
chat nothing .would be left undone
that would conduce to the lake a
a summer camping ground. As rap
idly as possible chutes, arcades,
swings, and all other features
of amusement incident to out-door
recreation will be built or added to
the camping grounds which will' lie
at the head of the lake.
' This is a project that' will be wel
comed ,warmly by every resident of
the county. . Inasmuch ao extensive
advertising tru the east tU contempla
ted by the new company, It will so
advertise Wallowa as a" s -mmer
amusement place, that doubtless
many settlers will thus 'be attracted.
In any event (lt .will. If properly) ad
vertised, attract thousands of sum
mer visitors, r which means a rapid
advertisement of this section of Or
egon. No nore beautiful spot ex
ists, either fa America or Swlter
land, than the country about Los
tin e, Enterprise and Joseph. At
one point In the mountain range
the observer can mount a promon
tory and count some dozen moun
tain lakes all of which teem' with
mountain trout. Wallowa lake lies
nestling between mountains, and is
one ot the most beautiful bodies of
water in the world. It is filled with
trout, and he water Is replenished
the year round1 from melting snows
off the mountain, .peaks.
