HEPPNE Herald SEMI-WEEKLY With which il contolidatsd The Ion Bulletin. A first class newspaper entered at the postoffice at Heppner. Oregon as second-class matter VOLUME 1 HEPPNER, OREGON, OCT. 16, 1914 NUMBER 36 HI A3 MORROW COUNTY LA CHANGES HANDS DEAL INVOLVES LARGE SUM Lafe Penland Sells 5500-Acre Stock Ranch to Stantield Broth ers Who Take Immediate Possession of Property. ENJOYS HIS 78th BIRTHDAY 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. W. T. HILL SELLS BIG RANCH 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 IN STANFIELD AND WAS OR GANIZING A COMPANY TO BUILD A CREAMERY THERE. A glance at 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 tection. 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. M PROGRESSING Libby BcBee, the Cecil stockman had some trouble with his auto while at Parker'u Mill a few days ago rnd the machine had to be towed into town ar.d is now in the hospital at Albert tfowker s crtablishrent. John Hughes was over to Pendle ton the first of the week to see Dr, Boyden. 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 movement. ment. 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. L. K. Harlan. HITTER R AD 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.

RAILROAD ADV'RTISES OREGON The railroads are doinsr hie thine for the Northwest through the publi cation of literature that may induce visitors to the Panama-Pacific Ex position to plan their trips through this section. The most recent publi cation of this sort is the pamphlet issued liy the U.-W. It. & N. system. The scenic wonders along the line of . the railroad from Kansas City to the cities of the great Nortwest are beautiful pictured in most realistic colors. In its 64 pages the booklet takes one on a quick trip throuirh level, fertile valleys, over the rugged 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 Roses'. One of the cities of which we as n nation are proud. Through out all time shall the majestic, snow crowned Mount Hood look down up on it in immutable silence." In setting up the announcement of Hanson Hughes last issue we ommit ted the name of the ollicc to which Mr. Hughes aspires. However, this was unintentional and has been cor rected for this issue. Mr. Hughes is making an aggressive campaign for the Treasurership.
