SATURDAY. JULY 9, 1904 8UB8CKIPTION KATES: One Year Six Mouths Three Months AN EXPLANATION 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. Forwarding 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. r 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 and central. 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 years. 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 selves? 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 (>p|M>i(unities. 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. The Tiinvs-I ler.ikl vfinds upon inquiry that the wires are clown between L’artyon City and Baker and also Heppner, and have been for the past two days, therefore cannot give its readers the nomi- this issue. the S. ,V B.

A very largo crowd had assem bled at the hall tn witness the draw ing of these prizes and much in terest was manifested, especially among the la lies. The drawing wus conducted in such n manner that nil were convinced of the fair ness and every individual present was well satisfied. The lucky ones were congratulated on every hand. The prizes wi re indeed valuable and such enterprise upon the parts of the big firms is commendable. Such people des< rve the large busi ness they receive from the people of this county and each have made more business by being liberal with their patrons.
