Society- The Gazette-Times PUBLISHED WEEKLY AND DEVOTED TO THE BEST INTERESTS OF MORROW COUNTY Volume 42, Number 17. V HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, JULY 23, 1925 Subscripion $2.00 Ter Year General Fund at Disposal of County Courts Increased. LAW IS MANDATORY District! and CUlea Now Receive Only 50 Per Cent of Road Money For Work Where Rained. Some county courts and many tax payers wilt be surprised at the pro visions of Senate Bill No. 82, which became a law May 28th. It is an amendment to section 4600, Oregon Laws, relating to road taxes, and gives road districts and cities a wallop that reduces their road funds 20 per cent and at the same time nearly doubles the general road funds of the county. Under the old law 70 per cent of the general road fund levy went to the city (or road district) wherein it was raised for use on rouda or streets, and 30 per cent went to the general road fund to be applied at the discretion of the county court for road purposes. The new law pro vides for a 60-50 division of the funds between the general road fund and the district or city road fund. It further provides, in regard to cities, that thin money be spent in improv ing county roads within the city, and streets leading to market roads or stnte highways. Hitherto, there bas been no restriction as to the streets that it might be applied on. The law is mandutory upon county courts in counties of 25,000 popula tion or less according to the U. S. census of 1110. In counties of more than 25 000 population the county courts MAY levy a general road tax of 1 to 10 mills and apportion it as provided in the act. The concluding paragraph of the new law says : "And it is hereby further provided that no county money or county funds except taxes levied under the state market road act for market road con struction, shall be Used by the coun ty court or commissioners' court up on any roads or bridges, derived from any tax levy hereafter made, except the same be levied and collected as in this section provided." This act appears in the 1925 ses sion laws as chapter 328, on page 669. The following paragraph indicates apparently that each incorporated city MUST be apportioned its share of the general road fund: "Said tax shall be used for road purposes only, as provided in this act, and 50 per cent thereof shall be apportioned to the SEVERAL road districts, including districts com posed of incorporated cities and towns in such proportion as the amount of taxable property in each district shall bear to the whole amount of taxable property in the county, and the re maniing 50 per cent shall be applied to roads in such locality in the coun ty as the county court or commis sioners' court may direct. The amounts apportioned to any incorporate deity or town shall be transferred to such incorporated city or town to be expended under the management of the officials on coun ty roads within the cities or towns, or on streets that connect with mar ket roads or state highways leading into the cities or towns.

Fire totally destroyed the postof ftce building and all its contents at Lena early yesterday morning. Just how the fire originated, Postmaster Vincent is unable to figure out, but his family was awakened at about 3:30 when the building, located just across the road from their residence, was seen to be a mass of flames, and it was too late to get anything out. All the records of the office, and the equipment went up in smoke, and just at present Lena is without prop er postoffice facilities, temporarily. The office had been removed from the store building at Lena a number of months ago, Mr. Vincent having erect ed the small building across the road from his resilience after going out of the store business. The loss to him is small, but there was no in surance. Funeral Services For George Whiteis Held Funeral services for George White is, husband of Mrs. Gertrude Whiteis who for the past several years was normal instructor in Crook county high school, were held Friday after noon from the Methodist church, with Rev, James Kaye, pastor of Commun ity church of this city, in charge. Burial took place in the local ceme tery. The body, accompanied by Mrs. Whiteis and two sons and one daugh ter, arrived in Prineville Friday morning. Mr. Whiteis' death occurred at his Portland home, 164 Dakota street, early last Wednesday morning. The body, stretched across a gas range, was found by his eldest son, Roy V. Whiteis. Mr. Whiteis had suffered from heart disease for many years, and it was believed by those who took charge of the body that death was due to heart disease and gas inhal ation. Mr. Whiteis is survived by his wid ow, Mrs. Gertrude Whiteis, two daughters, Miss Helen Whiteis and Mrs. Beryl Baker of Spokane, Wash.; two sons, Roy V. Whiteis and Paul L. Whiteis. Centrnl Oregonian, Prineville. Mr. Whiteis was for many years engaged in business in Heppner and was well known here. His widow, Mrs. Gertrude Whiteis, was formerly a teacher ill the high school here. Crops Are Very Good In Walla Walla Section Frank Evans wa down from his home at Walla Walla for a day or so the end of the week. Having been engaged in the raising of wheat in this county for many years, Mr. Ev ans is a pretty good judge of condi tions, and he stated to us that a trip over most of the country tributary to Lexington revealed to him that there is a lot of very good wheat to be harvested out that way. He was not discouraged over the outlook, and from the reports that are coming in from those now threshing, we are inclined to think his judgment about right. Speaking of the conditions in the Walla Walla section, Mr. Evans stat ed that the farmers up that way en gaged in the wheat game arc getting mirhty good yields lots of 40-bushel 'Arhf.'ot, and some of the heavy lands go.ng even better. Orchardists and truck farmers are not fit ri tig quite so well, however. The prunes have been hit by some disease that is causing them to fall off the trees and the loss from this source will be heavy. Walla Walla has also been a big producer of onions for the out side markets, and this year that crop ts very short, owing largely to the gardeners not being able to get the water on their tracts at just the proper time. This season's wheat crop will bring many millions of dol lars Into the Walla Wnlln vnlloy. and 40c U. S. DRY DRIVE TO It Is Planned to Cut Off Liquor Supply at Source. TASK IS LARGE ONE Brfg. Gen. Andrews In Full Charge; Eliminates State Lines By Cre atlng 22 Federal Zones. Written Specially for The Gazette 0 Times by EDWARD PERCY HOWARD. - Enforcement of the prohibition law is now squarely before the American people and in complete charge of Fed eral authorities. The plan of enforcement, effective August 1, has been carefully thought out, the machinery has been provid ed, and the man to whom the country looks for action is definitely in the saddle. Today there are just two questions in the public mind, the first, whether Brigadier-General L. C. Andrews will prove capable of en forcing the law, if not, then is H possible to enforce the law under any circumstances? Unquestionably Gen. Andrews has a stupendous task ahead of him, but he is not lacking moral support any more than he lacks complete control. President Coolidge unquestionably is determined to have the law enforced if it be possible to enforce it. Sec retary Mellon is no less determined to put an end to the liquor traffic, and the press generally throughout the country stands strongly in favor of law enforcement. Even those newspapers with wet tendencies stand as a unit in insisting that the law be enforced as long as it is a law. General Andrews' plan of creating twenty-two Federal zones which wipe out state lines, is expected in some quarters to be the keynote of suc cessful enforcement. In other quar ters the plan is regarded with alarm as giving evidence of further en croachment on the rights of states and the liberties of the people. "Thus far have we gone in the de termined plan to create a new autoc racy in the hitherto land of the free" say the Columbia, S. C, Record. "All that has preceded this gigantic ex tension of police powers of federal government has been the merest child's play. But what is happening is just as the Record, five years ago, predicted would happen. The end is not yet." What State Will Not Do, Govern ment Must. Quite a different view is expressed by the Philadelphia Inquirer which approves the abolition of the state directors. "It may be argued that all this means an increase in federal power at the expense of the states," says the Inquirer, "but, as the President pointed out recently, what the states will not do the federal government must do. The enforcement of fed eral law is clearly within its prov ince, more particularly if this law is so unpopular in some communities that local officials are affected by local feelings." The Washington Star says the slowness and leniency of the courts is responsible for the failure of pro hibition to date. "Enforcement is possible," says the Star. "It is upon that principle that the Treasury Department's new organization has been planned. In tegrity on the part of enforcement officers of all degrees is an essential. It has never been believed to be im possible to organize an honost, loyal force. Hypocriey and infidelity are not dominant characteristics of the American people." Whatever may be the result of the Andrews plan at least the country is promised an honest effort to compel obedience to the law of the land, and bring an end to the mockery that exists particularly ht the big cities. Political considerations, we are told, are now eliminated. No longer will the local boss be able to march to court and obtain leniency or immun ity for friendly violators of his con stitution. Plus the elimination of politics a rapid and determined drive is to bo made to stop the sources of supply, importation and diversion of legnlly manufactured and stored al cohol. Won't Waste Time on Small-fish Bootlegger. It has been shown that sporadic assaults on the individual bootlegger, raids on small dispensers, and gun ning after petty offenders is futile, serving only to make the law en forcing powers a laughing stock. Control of the sources of supply will necessarily eliminate the little follows from the scene of law viola tion without further action. They cannot sell booze they cannot obtain. "Uncle Sam means business," says the Cleveland Plaindenlcr, whose edi torial calls upon the states and local communities to carry their share of the burden of enforcement. VISIT HERE FROM CALIFORNIA.

Mulvana Arrested On Charge of Assault Upon complaint of James Brown, made yesterday before Justice Cor nett, a warrant was issued for the arrest of Leonard Mulvana on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon. Messrs. Brown and Mulvana have been cutting wood together in the mountuins at Boiler Camp, and a dis pute arose early yesterday morning over a settlement. It is alleged by Brown that Mulvana wished to haul away a part of the wood for his pay to which Brown objected, stating that this could not be done as the wood had all been contracted for, and he requested that Mulvana wait until tbe wood was measured up by the parties to whom It had been sold, when sufficient money could be col lected to pay what Mulvana claimed. This did not suit Mr. Mulvana, who pounced upon Brown, knocking litm down with a club and generally beat ing him up. The arrest of Mulvana was the result and he will have his hearing in the court of Justice Cor net. SMYTH E LAMBS BRING $15.

Clark place, along with his own, out on the border of Sand Hollow northeast of Lexington, was in town Wednesday afternoon getting his wagon fixed up for wheat hauling. He is threshing now and the grain is turning out fairly well. Early Baart is going about 15 bushels to the acre and seemed to stand the hot spell better than the bluestem, which is running at about 12 bushels. The bam on the Clark place was destroyed by fire recently, and Mr. Lindhe suf fered the loss of a lot of good har ness and other equipment. He is at a loss to account for the origin of the fire. I. A. Mather, who for three years was principal of the Heppner schools, arrived from Marshfield on Friday last and spent a "-short time in this city, the occasion for his visit being his marriage, which event took place Saturday morning, the bride being Miss Kathleen Mahoney, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Mahoney. Mr. Mather has been with the state high way department since the close of school, doing some work in civil en gineering on the Roosevelt highway in Coos county. He will teach again at Scappoose, Oregon, where he is principal of the high school. Mrs. A.

Mr. and Mrs. Scott are uncle and sunt of Mrs. Stephens and the Newtons are cous ins. Dr. Don R. Haylor, optometrist, was in Heppner for a couple of days the first of the week, He drove up from Portland on Sunday, being ac companied by his father, Wm, Haylor, who had spent several days in the city on business and pleasure. County Clerk Gay M. Anderson and family returned home on Sunday from Portland, having spent the week in the metropolis, taking in the events incident to the Elks con vention. License to wed was issued by Clerk Anderson on Tuesday of last week to Ray Wilson Dempsey and Thyra Beck, young people of Boardman. They were married later at Heppner. Miss Let Barlow, daughter of Frank Barlow of Heppner fiat, who was recently operated on for appen dicitis by Dr. Johnston, was able to return to her home on Tuesday. Sam Hughes returned home from a short business trip to Portland on Friday. LOCAL IK ITEMS By A. B. CHAPIN Service Station At Lex ington Is Burglarized The service station of Lewis Fred erickson at Lexington was entered by some unknown party last Thurs day night. AccesB was made by jim mying one of the windows and the party walked away with the cash register, but our informant stated nothing else of value was found miss ing. The burglar was operating in his stocking feet as indicated by the tracks, or he might have had on soft soled shoes. At any rate the town marshal was able to track him to the basement of the Leach store across the street. It is estimated that the register contained about $1.38 in sil ver and coppers, so Mr. Burglar got little for his trouble. We have not learned whether the cash register has been located. Would Make Ditch Creek Flat Good Camp Ground Many years ago the prairie on Ditch creek some 22 miles southeast of Heppner was the favorite camp ing place in the summer of large numbers of Heppner people. This was so for many seasons, and It was really one of the most delightful places accessible to the people of this community. For a number of years past, however, the prairie has been abandoned as a summer resort and camps made along the creek in the lower level. People at Heppner are reviving an interest in the old camping place, stating that after all it is the only real spot in easy access of the town that can be made to accomodate a large number of campers, and they would like to see it fixed up again. We presume that the proper arrange ments could be made with the owners of the land permitting the improve ment of the grounds and allowing campers access thereto for the sum mer outing season. MATHER-MAHONEY. Beautiful in its simplicity was the wedding Saturday morning of Kath leen Mahoney, daughter of Mr.-and Mrs. W. P. Mahoney, to Irving A. Mather. The ceremony was performed under a bower of sweet peas by Bishop Remington of Pendleton. The bride, who was given in mar riage by her father, wore a gown of Venetian lace over ivory satin. Her veil was of tulle caught with sprays of orange blossoms. Preceding the ceremony Mrs. Dor othy Patterson sang "At Pawning." Mrs. A. C. Ball, sister of the bride, was matron of honor nnd Mr. Ball acted as best man. The bridesmaids were Miss Elizabeth Muhowy and Miss Patricia Mahoney. Following the ceremony a wedding breakfast was served to eighteen intimate friends and relatives, after which the bride and groom left for Southern Oregon to spend the summer. They will be at home after Sep tember first at Scappoose, Oregon, where Mr. Mather ts principal of the union high school. CLIMB MT. HOOD.

The boys got home Mon day, pretty sore from the experience but all glad that they had gone thru tho thrills attendant upon the climb, Kirschner was so enthused over the matter that he is ready to go again, but the other two gentlemen are go ing to watt until they have gotten over some of the hair raising thrills and the leg soreness before thinking of doing it again. The climb on Sun May was a very successful one, all those starting for the summit mak ing the hike with the exception of one man, and they are now alt eligible 'to admission into the Maxamas. 1 Priscilla dresses, very reasonably priced, at the Curran Millinery Shop. CALIFORNIA LAW PRESCRIBES KIND OF COTTON CROP If Held Constitutional It May Lead to Restriction of Variety and Production of Any Crop. By State Market Agent. One of the most unusual laws passed by any state is the act passed by the recent California legislature, which prescribes several districts in which it will hereafter be unlawful to plant any variety of cotton except the "Acala" variety. The purpose of the law is to restrict the growing of cotton to the one variety of uniform length, for the best interests of the cotton growers themselves, but the question is, if this law is held con stitutional, if legislation along this line cannot also restrict production and variety of any crop. What Potato Grading Does. Commenting on the potato situa tion in Oklahoma, the "Marketing Bulletin", published by the State Marketing Commission, states: "Last year no Oklahoma potatoes were inspected; this year already three hundred ears have been, and it looks as though there would be as many more. To date we have not heard of a single car of these pota toes having been refused, whereas we have heard of uninspected stock having been turned down as high as 80 cents per 100 pounds." Grading, not only of potatoes, but of all products is i demanded these days and the wise grower is he who puts his stock on the market on a quality basis. Where Was the $100 Lost? From Curry county recently came a letter to the state market agent from a business man, stating that his son will become of age this fall, and that when he was born he invested one hundred dollars for him. "This one hundred dollars has grown to a little more than two hundred dollars now," writes the father, "but when I get to looking the matter over I rind that the two hundred is not worth quite as much in purchasing value as the original one hundred when invested. I would like to have the state market agent tell me where I lost one hundred dollars." Establishing Consumers' Stores. In the middle west the co-operative organizations are working along the lines of farmer-consumer co-operation, with the plan of operating con sumers' stores in the big cities; op erating their own middle-handling agencies and dividing the middle profits between the raiser and con sumer. These orgnxiations say they have no fight against the retailer, but unless they will co-operate and buy direct from the consumers' organiza tions they will be obliged to operate their own stores in competition. The purpose of the farmer-consumers is to raise the price paid to growers and lower the prices to consumers. This they say can be accomplished by eliminating the several middle profits and expenses. They claim that lower prices to the homes will increase consumption and better con ditions generally. Results For General Good. Oregon's potato grading and inspec tion law is meeting with favor gen erally by raisers and dealers who are on the square. It simply compels the grower or dealer to state the quality of the spuds in the sack. Any buyer is entitled to this information. Attending International Anti-Crime Convention Attorney S. E. Kotson departed on Thursday last for Victoria, B. C, where he is this week attending the International Anti-Crime convention. Passing through Portland, Mr. Not son was interviewed by the writer of the "Those Who Come and Go" col umn in the Oregonian as follows: "The grain in Morrow county was damaged more by the hot winds of the past few weeks than was at first supposed. Harvesting is now in full swing north of Lexington, with the average yield running from 12 to 15 bushels per acre, he said. Mr. Notson reported that petitions for a new bond issue to cover the cost of a comprehensive system of market roads have been filed with the county court and will be acted upon at the August meeting. Mr. Notson is dis trict attorney of Morrow county." CARD OF THANKS. We wish to thank all those who so kindly gave assistance and sympathy during our recent bereavement. MR. and MRS. W. G. FARRENS.

Red Lemonade V Everything By Arthur Brisbane Diminishing Earthquakes No Third Term Must the Strike Come? The Hen, Pig and Cow California earthquake reports dwin dle down, as was predicted. Five times as many deaths in a small sec tion of a big Eastern city, due to some disease outbreak, would attract no attention. Those that know California know that this misfortune of a moment will be wiped away, made op and soon forgotten. It will not check Cal ifornia's growth by as much as an hoar. The Italian earthquake in 1915 kill ed 19,973, and in 1908 earthquakes in Italy killed 76,482. Italy has volca noes in addition to earthquakes, yet nobody says, "I shall not go to Italy." A dozen killed in California, and "vic ious publicity" makes of the event a GIGANTIC DISASTER. Some Wall Street gentlemen ortran- ized a little panic based on Santa Bar bara s earthquake and now wish they hadn't. They sold short California stocks, oils, rails, etc. But real fi nance knows that, compared to the total wealth of California, the proper ty destruction in Santa Barbara is like losing one nail in a nail factory. The stocks "snapped" back again, and the panic promoters had their fingers pinched. The New York Times devotes part of its front page to Ma third term for Coolidge." There can't be any Coolidge third erm discussion until after the Presi dent shall have been reelected in 1923. He has been elected only once thus far. If, as is probable, he should be re-elected in 1928, that would be his SECOND TERM and the right time to begin talking of a THIRD term. When Washington was President and an aggressive editor was accusing him of royal ambition, a desire to be king, the people worried about too long tenure of office. Having got rid of an English king they didn't want an American king. Washington answered that when he refused to be elected more than twice. Third term talk now should be postponed by sensible people until about 1930. Meanwhile, there is plenty of work for the people to do without worrying about distant is sues. If the President carried the nation successfully through his FIRST elected term, without serious mistakes or setbacks, he will have rendered a great service to the Uni ted States, and the people of his par ty, not being idiots, will ask him to take charge for four years more. A great coal strike threatens here, as a similar strike threatens Eng land. Mr. Lewis, leader of coal min ers, and owners of mines should think it over carefully. To force a strike, when the people are willing to pay a fair price for coal based on fair wages, is folly and the intelligence of organized money should find a way to prevent it. The man responsible for the suc cess of the coal miners' union knows that this is not the best time for strikes, and he will avoid THIS strike if in any just way it can be done.

It is important to havj this known. Missionaries to Africa take a tame menagerie, including chickens, pis, cattle and goats. As they travel, the missionaries will observe how these interesting animals all represent EVOLUTION. The White Leghorns and Rhode Island Reds come from jungle fowl.
