A first class newspaper entered at the postoffice at Heppner. Oregon as second-class matter
Lafe Penland Sells 5500-Acre Stock Ranch to Stantield Broth
ers Who Take Immediate Possession of Property.
Another deal in Morrow County dirt
was concluded this week when Stan
field Brothers of Stanfield and Echo
purchased the 5500-acre stock ranch
owned by Lafe Penland, lying about
16 miles south of Heppner. In the
deal were included some of the sheep
and cattle owned by Mr. Penland. The
approximate price paid by Stanfield
Brothers for the real and personal
property was $47,500. Possession has
already been given and the new
owners have taken charge. Mr. Hugh
Stanfield has been here most of the
week and has been busy laying plans
for the future handling of the ranch.
Mr. Penland has been in poor health
for some time and this is the reason
for his retiring from active life. In
speaking with Mr. Art Minor yester
day concerning this sale we heard a
number of compliments paid to Mr.
Penland. "You might state in the
paper that Morrow County loses from
participation in its active affairs one
of its very best citizens," said Mr.
Minor. 'I have ridden over the
range with Mr. Penland under various
adverse condition and have found him
to be a man of extraordinary grit and
perserverance. Furthermore, he is a
man of integrity, absolutely 'on the
square.' We can ill afford to lose
such men as Mr. Penland from the
rank of the stockmen and farmers.
He stands for the best interest of the
community and his heart and hand
have always been with us in the fight
for better things. You can say that
I, for one, and I know that I speak the
sentiments of many others, wish Mr.
Penland many happy days to enjoy
the fruits of his hard labor.
The Stanfield Brothers, who are the
new owners of the property are big,
broad-minded, liberal and successful
men of our neighboring county of
Umatilla and are strangers to only
a small part of the people of Morrow
County. Besides their extensive hold
ings on Butter Creek and the Uma
tilla River Valley, their bands of sheep
and cattle feed on various ranges
from this county as far east as
Wyoming. The Stanfields are also
interested in the banks of Echo and
Stanfield. Morrow County is for
tunate indeed in having such men in
terested in her commercial activities.
The land included is this sale is one
of the finest stock ranches in Eastern
Oregon. Besides it carries with it
an allotment of fine range land. Stan
field Brothers have had a portion of
the ranch rented for range land and
have been running a band of cattle
on same this season. They will now
stock it to the limit.
Wednesday was the 78th birthday of
one of Heppner's most prominent and
beloved citizens, "Uncle" Joe Williams,
City Recorder, and following his usual
custom Mr. Williams gave a birthday
dinner to the following invited guests;
Miss Leala and Lulu Campbell and
Miss Josephine Cameron, and his pal,
Master Sammy Van Vactor. The din
ner was a four-course affair, specially
prepared by the chef of the Palace
Hotel and served in the Palace Grill.
His seventy-eighth birthday found
Uncle Joe in good health and enjoying
life fully as much as any of his
friends. The Herald man found him
at the Palace Hotel in the evening and
drew him into conversation. "How
long have you been a resident of
Heppner, Mr. Williams?" was asked.
"I have been here for over thirty
years," was the answer. "My broth
er and I bought a band of goats in
California some thirty years ago, at
the price of one dollar per head and
decided to drive them overland to Ore
gon. We started from Reno, Nevada,
and wintered at Paisley, Oregon. In
the spriwr we came on north and fin
ally landed in Morrow County and I
have been here almost continuously
ever since. We sold our goats for
four dollars per hetd.
On the evening of his birthday Mr.
Williams invited lite friend, Frank
Roberts to have a cigar and smoke to
his good health. On inquiring the
reason and hnding that Mr. Williams
was just passing his seventy-eighth
milestone on the road of life, Mr.
Roberts hastened to explain that he
had a birthday of his own about once
every year and that it was that very
day. Thereupon congratulations were
mutually extended.
Mr. H. Taylor Hill has been up
from Portland this week settling up
his affairs with Mr. Jesse Hall, who
has hed the Balm Fork ranch, owned
by Mr. Hill, rented for some time.
Mr. Hill has just completed the sale
for this 1040-acre tract, which lies 6
miles southeast of town, and a Mr.
Bryant of Portland is the new owner.
Mr. Bryant will move on to the place
at once.
A Plain Statement of Facts
Readers of the Herald will no doubt
remember the following news item
which appeared in this paper the issue
of October 9, 1914:
"A move is on foot to establish a
creamery and ice plant at Stanfield.
Our friend Sparling is known to be in
that section of the country at the pres
ent time and is probably arousing the
people there to the fact that dairying
will make a community much more
solid and prosperous than fruit rais
ing. We wish Mr. Sparling the best
of success in his efforts to promote
the creamery proposition at Stanfield,
providing it is really he who is at the
head of the movement."
In the issue of The Heppner
Gazette-Times, dated October 15, 1914,
Mr. Sparling takes exception to the
above item and his article is charac
teristic of the man, in that Sparling
is the biggest liar that has hit these
parts in many a day, in the opinion of
practically every business man and
citizen of Hennner. many of whom we
have talked pesonally with concerning
Mr. Sparling since that gentleman
first arrved in Morrow County and
sought by every numns of misrepres
entation he could manufacture to
ingratiate himself and his convivial
personality into the confidence of our
best citizens.
We are accused in Mr. Sparling's
article of having stated that he WAS
the article reprinted above will show
whether or not there is any truth in
Mr. Sparling's statement. Mr. Sparl
ing was seen at a certain point three
miles from Stanfield, by the writer
personally, at the time the article ap
peared in the Stanfield Standard an
nouncing that a creamery was about
to be started there. Furthermore we
have the word of several Echo people
that Mr. Sparling inquired as to the
possibility of the re-establishment of
l ie r.cho t reamery in business, from
vhkh we deduced that he was inter
ested in the creamery business of that
Mr. Sparling did not read the item
vhich appeared in the Herald and
which we have reprinted above, lie
r Imits it in his statement. He onlv
II E A It I) the statement which he
Mr. R. F. Hynd, President of the
Heppner Milling Co., and former
prominent citizen of this county, ar
riven here Monday evening from Port
land and has been very busy attend
ing to business matters and shaking
hands with his many old friends. Mr.
Hynd, it will be remembered, was in
Scotland at the time of the outbreak
of the war and arrived in America only
a snon ume ago. ui course, ne nas
been busy answering many and diverse
questions concerning conditions in
Scotland since the war broke out. The
trip across the water on his return was
very rough but he greatly enjoyed the
trip by rail across Canada on the
Canadian Pacific Railway. Mr. Hynd
went out to Sand Hollow yesterday
where he was the guest of his
cousins, the Hynd Brothers and Miss
Anna Hynd.
Libby BcBee, the Cecil stockman

at Parker'u Mill a few days ago rnd

John Hughes was over to Pendle
ton the first of the week to see Dr,
Storage Co., so long as he (Sparling)
was at the head of or largely interest
ed in the concern.) bparling mtro
duced himself to the community as
being a man with from $75,000 to
$100,000 ready cash to invest. . In
terested parties took measures to de
termine the accuracy of this and other
statements made by the man and
found them without, exception to be
absolutely false. In fact the real an-
ture of the man soon became appar
ent to the majority of our citizens and
we are sure we voice their sentiments
when we say that a person bearing a
more hypocritical, deceptive nature
and of a more artificial character has
never been seen in this county. By
every means of intrigue at his dis
posal this man has sought to mis
represent, through the columns of our
competitive paper, a small news item
which stated the truth in every posi
tive assertion contained in its lines and
which wished Mr. Sparling the best of
success PROVIDED it was really he
who was at the head of the Stanfield
In closing we will say that if Mr.
Sparling wishes us to do so we will
print in detail some of the statements
tie has made concerning various busi
ness men and citizens of Heppner,
which were copied as fast as he made
them, in the presence of witnesses,
and are being preserved for use at the
proper time.

Grade At John Day River Near
ly Completed We Are Told,
Mr. W. O. Minor and John Sprouls
came back Wednesday from the North
Fork of the John Day River, where
they had been to celiver some dyna
mite to be used on the Ritter Road.
Mr. Minor informs The Herald that
work on the grade at the river is pro
greasing rapidly. The road on the
other aide of the river is all completed
and on this side the grade is finished
for a stretch of about three miles,
leaving one more mile to finish. Mr.
Minor describes the road as being a
fine piece of work. The money sub
scribed by the various parties for the
building of the road is being judicious
ly spent, according to the views of
Mr. Minor.

The scenic wonders along the line of .

takes one on a quick trip throuirh

Rockies, across rivers and lakes into
the beautiful cities of the far West
and Northwest, and cannot fail to im
press the most skeptic Easterner with
the grandeur of the West. Under an
unusually good panorama of Portland
appear these words: " 'The City of
