We endeavor to make every page
of the Enterprise a "local"- page,
preferring to give our space to the
1 news happening in Polk county,
rather than enter the field of state
and national, so much better cov
ered by other publications than
any county journal can ever hope
to attain. As a medium of infor
mation about Polk county and
Polk county people we believe we
have the be9t columns in the
county. We desire your further
co-operation to make it still better.
Any item of public interest about
which you may know is earnestly
desired by us. There are several
parties in town who never miss a
week in furnishing us with several
interesting items. ' We appreciate
their efforts. "Go thou and do
The Enterprise this week is
publishing from the pen of several
of our live correspondents a list of
property which has changed hands
it their hands during the last few
months. The articles make inter
esting reading and show that Polk
county real estate is gradually ad
vancing in price and that Eastern
ers are looking this way. New
blood means much to any com
munity. Where no real estate
transfers are made and properties
of all kinds remain unchanged,
nine times out of ten that place
displays general stagnation .in the
commercial sense ot the word. The
man best for the community is the
one wEo reaches out and draws
business into our midst, and from
the revenue derived from those
transactions reinvests and makes
more business. That's the kind of

The assertion that Binger Her
mann's defeat is desired by the ad
ministration is getting to be an
old chestnut, and will act as a
boomerang to the instigators of
such an accusation. It would be a
poor partisan administration that
would desire to see one of the op
posite faith go to the halls of con
gress because of petty differences.
One fact which demonstrates the
accusations a myth is that Con
gressman McCreary, of Minnesota,
a rock-ribbed party man, is in our
midst to urge the election of Mr.
Hermann. No man of Mr. Mc
Creary's standing could afford to
antagonize hs j party's desires by
yoluntarily coming across the con
tinent to urge the election of one
out of favor with the organization
he himself must look to for special
favors. Isn't this the logical view
to take of the matter?

last Saturday were highly success
The general committee on ar
rangements, composed of five mem
bers from each class, deserve great
credit for the satisfactory manner
in which the celebration passed off.
This committee was divided into
near Kings Valley.
Reports from the hop growers in
this vicinity and in the Pedee and
Kings Valley districts indicate the
most favorable condition of the
hop vines with every prospect of a
full crop. Primary training is
finished in most of the yards and
necsssary cultivation is well up
with the season.
At the session of the city council

necessary to lay water mains.
The matter of permanently locat

brunt of the work fell upon this
last committee, and a large share
of the day's success is due to the
chairman, Miss Stella Hampton,
and her able assistants, Miss Jessie
Reese and Miss Naomi Craven.
Much credit must also be given
the other chairman, Miss Martha
Whealdon, Miss Wetherbee, Messrs.
Powell and Willis Butler, with
their willing assistants. Many
others not on either of these com

honorable mention, chief among
