public improvements in which
all are equally interested.
The Times-Herald hopes to see
the necessary changes in the
charter to provide for a bond
issue for water works and sewer
system made and submitted to
the voters. If the original com
mittee appointed for that pur
pose do not act at once get one
that will. All seem to favor such
an amendment but do not seem
to take sufficient interest to see
that it comes before the voters
in the right way.
IRRIQATI0N PROJECT FINANCED.
It is gratifying to find so many
people throughout the entire
county commending the action of
the county court in providing for
a new court house. We have
heard of no one objecting to the
move in fact. It is right and
the time has arrived for better
accommodations and safer hous
ing for our public records. It is
in keeping with the general ad
vancement of the country which
demands better public buildings.
The Bully Creek irrigation pro
ject covering some 30,000 acres
of fine land over in Malheur
county, has been financed through
the efforts of Judge Geo. E. Davis,
who has just returned from Chi
cago. Water rights will cost $S0
per acre payable in 20 years.
The first payment is due three
years after the water is turned
We congratulate our neighbors
and hope the reclamation will
begin at once. Harney county
has some very attractive irriga
tion projects that will be taken
care of now that the railroad is
pushing in. The cost in these
projects will not be as high by
one-half, perhaps, as the Bully
ALL FAVOR WATER AND SEWER
The mass meeting of citizens
at the court house to hear the
reading of the report of Engi.
geers Cooper & Dodge on the
estimated cost of the establish
ment of a system of water works
and sewer in Burns showed a de
cided sentiment in favor of bond
ing for such a purpose.
Estimates of the possible re
venue from Iho water system
showed it to bo a business pro
position that would be almost
self-supporting. The revenue
would more than pay the inter
est on the necessary bonds and
possibly would include mainten
ance, theioforo would not neces
sitate any extra tax upon the city
unless it be to start a sinking
fund for the purpose of paying
off the bonds.
Another feature is the fact
that the efficient water syttem
would reduce fire risks and the
insurance rate very materially,
thus working to the saving of
many dollars by the business
men of the city.
A resolution was adopted show
ing the sense of the meeting that
the city authorities prepare and
submit to the voters at the an
nual election in March the neces
sary amendment to the charter
providing for bond issues cover
ing such expense. This will be
prepared and submitted. It is
hoped the large property owners
will take sufficient interest in
this important matter to see that
it is properly prepared and carried.

Extremely Sad Death.
Mrs. E. J. Stanton died at the
home of Mrs. Will Cummins in
this city yesterday afternoon,
the immediate cause being pneu
monia. She had been a sufferer
from childhood with a nervous
disease that would finally have
taken her life, but the end was
hastened by complications. She
had recently had scarlet fever
and upon recovering was brought
to this city from Lawen Wednes
day to be near her physicians, the
exposure caused pneumonia.
Mrs. Stanton would have been
18 years old next month, being
the daughter of the late Harry
McClure. Her mother died of
rheumatism and heart trouble a
little over a year ago and her
father died last September from
heart trouble leaving six orphan
children. Mrs. Stanton was mar
ried last June.
Her little brother, Walter, aged
9 years, was brought up from
Lawen with her and he also has
pneumonia but is improying

TO.1 RICHARDSON FAMOUS.
"At last you are able to stand
in the presence of real great
ness," said Tom Richardson, en
tering the promotion bureau of
fices at the Commercial Club yes
terday with a square package
under his arm. "I have waited
a long time to become really fa
mous, and now my wildest
dreams are realized."
"What is it?" queried the chief
of the publicity bureau from be
hind his typewriter.
"Wait and see," said Richard
son, dumping his package upon
the desk aud beginning to tear
off the wrappers.
Off camo the last covering of
papers, disclosing a cigar box,
this was quickly pried open, dis

brown cigars. The real glow of
the display was the picture on
the lid, however.
The last copy of the Engineer
ing News just received contains
an item stating that the Oregon
Electric Railway Co. (Hill road)
of Portland would extend an
electric line across the state with
feeders to various points south
and north. That paper also
states that the Oregon & Eastern
had made application for a char
ter in California, the intention
being to extend down to Weed.
The latter may refer to the Na
tron cutoff of the Harnman line.
The Engineering news is consid
ered authentic and shows that
the Hill system contemplates
more work in Oregon. Should it
be an electric line it would prove
economical and means rapid construction.
There has been two cases of
diptheria in the home of C. T.
Miller in this city. The oldest
daughter, Ruth, took sick some
three weeks ago and her physi
cians suspected it was diphtheria
but were not certain from a mi
croscopic examination, and when
a second case appeared they iso
lated the family and sent speci
mens to the state board for more
particular examination, receiving
a telegram yesterday that it was
diphtheria. The family in under
strict quarantine and the other
children have been treated with
antitoxine with the result that
none of them have taken it.
The heavy, wet snow caused
the electric light and telephone
wires to come in contact yester
