CONSIDER DRV FARM LATER.
A private letter received from
Judge J. K. Wentherford of
Albany, who is president of the
board of regents of the Oregon
Agricultural College, states that
tho board had a meeting on Apr
il 26, but no action was taken re
garding the location of tho dry
farm experiment station.
Judge Weatherford states that
there was but one proposition
before them and that was from
Morrow county. That county had
representatives present but ow
ing to the fact that Professors
Scudder and Bradley had just
returned and had not yet com
pleted their report the board was
unablo to give any particular
consideration of the matter. He
was not certain as to the date he
would call the meeting of tho
board for the consideration of
this matter, but it would likely
be near May 26.
Judge Weatherford will advise
the people hero of the date so
they can send any further com
munications or representatives
they may desire. This matter
should bo given attention and it
should be ascertained at once
whether Professors Scudder and
Bradley desire any further in
formation before this meeting.
Harney county will have two
or three representatives call up
on various members of the board
before the meeting is held.

the Journal says: Secretary Bal
linger today designated 158,176,
800 acres of land in states to
which the 320 acre homestead
law applies, as coming within
the provision of the law. Tho
states affected are Oregon, Wash

SUMPTER VALLEY PEOPLE COMING
It has been rumored on the
street for several days that Mr.
David Eccles and others connect

Railroad will visit Burns soon
perhaps next week. The Times
Herald ha3 no authority for this
statement other than a rumor,
but it does have it from authen
tic source that tho road will be
built as far as Prairie this year
and that the manager has op
tions on land this side of that
place and it is no secret that
Burns is the objective point.
That the road will ultimately
come here and it is possible con
struction will continue without
delay. Atleast a visit Mr. Eccles
following his inspection of last
fall would indicate such an in
