SATURDAY. JULY 9, 1904
This issue of the great religious
weekly was not printed on yellow
paper in anticipation of W. R.
Hearst being the nominee for pre
sident, nor through any desire of
the management to create a sen
sation. The fact is our white
paper which was ordered some
time ago did not arrive, although
we ’phoned for a part of it to be
shipped by stage.
companies and stage don’t seem
to realize the importance of the
great religious appearing regular
ly and on time, and therefore can
not be relied upon. Our readers
have never yet been disappointed
anil legal notices always receive
the full number of insertions in
these colums it is reliable and
peoples’ interests are protected.
NOTHING IN IT.
A report eminaling from some
source, which lias absolutely no
foundation, has been called to our
attention to the effect that the L .
S. Land Oijice at this place was
to be consolidated with the La
Grande oilice and established in
Baker City in the new federal
building to be erected there.
Such a report lias no foundation
¡mil we have information, that is
reliable in every respect, that no
such move is contemplated by the
government. There is no occa
sion for such a move in the first
place and every reason for the
local office to remain herv partic
ularly al this time. The records
of the office show that there are
something over 7,000,000 acres of
unappropriated land in this dis
trict and that the present location
of the oilice is most convenient
The land office was established
here for convenience anil to hasten
the settlement of the vast area of
unappropriated land. Just at this
time tlie government is contem
plating the proposition of taking
up large iri igation enterprises in
this district and there is every in
dication of the Linds being taken
up very rapidly in the next few
Isn’t it strange how some peo
ple will sputter around ami cast
insinuations at tluir neighbors
who seem to be prospering and
are more popular than them
This great religious
weekly lias very little use for such
individuals. It tills ils mission as
a local newspaper ami does not
seek quarrels with its neighbors
although it could find numerous
Its columns are
filled with live news both local and
advertising simply because it is
deserving and is a part of this
great inland empire. Business
men know it lias the circulation
is reported on the Streets to
the elfeyt that the democrats have
nominated Grover L leveland for
president. I bis cannot be verifi
ed and in fact has no foundation.
