trict had been received. Repre
sentatives of the local telephone
company went out among the
public spirited citizens yesterday
ovening and took up a liberal col
lection for tho purpose of getting
such news from over tho Btatc,
but so far as tho Tfmcs-Herald
can find there has been no suc
cess, even tho tho initiative se
cured the desired compensation.
Positively nothing authentic
had been received at that hour,
of anything outside of a fow lo
cal precincts in this vicinity.
It is reported that Brooke foi
district attorney had carried On
tario solid. The others in the
race on tho republican ticket un
reported as follews: Duncan ub

Grant County as receiving n ma
jority at Wcstfall in Malheur
county. The same report says
that Aker, democrat, was but 25
ahead of Vic Cozad in Malheur
Another report states that
Stewart of Grant has a big lead
in that county over Miller for the
office of joint-senator."
The returns in this county are
coming in very slow, some pre
cincts reporting only the vote on
some particular contestants. For
instance we have only the vote
of Comegys and Richardson can
didates for sheriff on tho demo
cratic ticket from Harney, Hap

BAD on siii-ep men.
The severe storms of the past
few days have been severe on
lambs. It is just lambing time
with the sheep men and the loss
hns been very heavy.
The Times-Herald has been in
formed that J. R. Jenkins 'phoned
in tho other day he had lost 1200
lambs and his neighbors had
lost proportionately. This is a
serious set back to the wool in
dustry of the country and will be
felt by a largo number of people.
While the great amount of preci
pitation is very beneficial to the
farmers it is bad on the stock in
dustry. It is just learned that there is
a foot of snow at J. F. Mahon's
Anderson Valley ranch.

of no avail.
