MAYOR J. A. BURLEIGH
DELIGHTED ELGIN PEOPLE
Mayor Burleigh pleased everybody
at EIln in hia Fourth of July ora
tlon there so much that ha was pre
vailed on to give another address on
the following day. The Recorder had
thLs ta s&v ot hia speech; .
: The oration, delivered by Hon. J
A. Burleigh, a well known Enterprise
Orcsran legislature, was the best ev
er heard in. Elgin, and one of the
most Interesting ever heard1 In' east
ern Oregon: Mr. Burleigh la not
only a polished orator, but is a
thinker of no small ability, and in
stead of making the "eagle scream"
' I. .the method .used on such oc
caslons, he delivered a straightfor
ward talk on. the present condition
of the United States government and
the duty of the cltteens thereof. One
of the principal, ideas conveyed by
him was that no government Is
better than the cl liens who compose
it, and that whatever defects exist
In . the government of the United
State today is- due to the voters.
"A government can be no cleaner
than It people." ws a fact which
.drove home to his hearers. He made
it plain that it was the duty, of ev
ery citizen to think for himself ana
not to vote was worse than being
an, anarchist. Space forbids giving
details of his oration, but It was to
the point, full of good and whole
some advice, and the manner tn
which he delivered held the audience
In rapt attention during the entire
clme. Numerous times he was stop
ped by the applause and the Im
mense throng lnthe pavilion cheered
llm at the closejv.

One of the mo3t interesting feat
ures of the Wallowa ( County Fair
association's exhibits will be a tnor-
ouh display -of Wallows county
minerals. Several claim owners
have already manifested the lnten
tlon of making an exhibit of the
leadlner ores of their properties, and
this should Inspire all owners of all
mineral prospects to do likewise,
making a distinct and Invaluable fea
ture of the great fair.
"Wallowa county contains some of
the best gold, silver and copper ores
in the country. While the mineral
is at present undeveloped .that fact
does not argue against the presence
of rich mineral deposits here. As

grade primary deposits in. this coun
ty than, in ninetenths the miner
