at a price that will not pay a reasonable

judged by the present persistent demand
for anything in the shape of a house, but
this has been tile history of all new towns

MAI.IIIHJR county, which was carved
Irpin a portion of Maker, still owes this
munty about 5ooo, but lias drJJed to re
slvt the payment theieot. Its case is
stated in the Ontario Advocate as lollews:
'"At the time Malheur was cut ott from
linker county, this county assumed a pro
portionate part nf the Indebtedness of Ma
ker county at that time, about one-third
ofV the total Indebtedness, we believe.
Since that time It has transpired that a
portion of that indebtedness was wrong
fully incurred, and a portion ot the Maker
county warrants have been declared by
the court to be void. It has occurred to
the county court of Malheur county,
theretore, that an equal portion of the
debt assumed by Malheur county at that
time must have also been wrongfully as
sumed, and that this county should be al
lowed rebate on the debt due Maker. To
the end of making an amicable settle
ment with Maker In this matter, the
county court sent I. H. Holland to Maker
to confer with the county court there last
week, and ascertain what rebate Malheur
would be allowed for her portion of the

is not a question of what they might be
willing to do it is an Impossible business

IT Is hardly necessary to advertise for
trade. The question Is how to fill
the orders we have on file. To get
dry lumber we have a first class
dry kiln. To get other stock we ship
from Hridal Veil, Baker City, McEwen,
Portland, Seattle and Tacoma. We will
ever keep pace with the demands of bus
iness and the money that is in sight.
