ABOUT 7000 SLAUGHTERED iuMIUIIIIMIIIIIIMHIIIIIIIimilllWIIIIMi The Drive Was Over Course of bout Two Miles, Which Wai Made In 40 Minutes Enthuslam at High Pitch. It was a jolly crowd of about forty who left Heppner at 8:35 Sunday morning for the big rabbit drive of the season that was pulled off at Harry Rogers' place, near Echo, between the hoars of 2 and 3 o'clock in the afternoon "of that day. A short stop was made at Lexing ton but not a man, woman or child was in sight. At lone the Ueppner con tingent was joined by about a dozen men. At 9:45 our train pulled into Heppner Junction, just 70 minutes after leaving Heppner, including two stops. Here twenty minutes were con sumed in turning the engine and getting onto the main line. ' One hour later or a little past 11,- we were at our desti nation, mile post 197, where there were several rigs to convey passengers, who did not desire to walk, a couple of miles to the driving grounds, and it didn't cost but 50 cents for the ride. A ma jority of our crew preferred to walk, because walking was preferable to riding through the bleak wind. At the starling point came a long tiresom wait of two hours for the Pacific express, on which the Pendleton ex cursion came. This wait proved the most tiresom part of our excursion as all were anions to get into line for the uiito. -uuovvTr, tui. train 'jrovihl about 75 people who. with those from Lee Cantwell, Heppner and the large number who WL Smith, had gathered from Echo and the surroon- C $ Kirk, ding country, made a jo!ly crowd of Vawter Crawford, " over 700 enthusiastic drivers. M Litchenthal, The start waa made shortly after 2 Wm Aye. o'clock, over a course of. more than TWAyere, than two miles, and ended before 3. E M Shutt, consuming about forty miDutes time. J H llent with a well tired out crew for their day's sport, but well pleased with the day's outing. The only unfavorable impression came at the close of the drive from the improvised lunch station which made the boys pot up 25 cents for a sandwich and a cup of weak coffee, or if a second cup of coffee were indulged in an extra 15 cents was demanded. The boys felt that they were doing a generous deed to put np 2.70 tor an excursion ticket to go down and help rid that section of the rabbit nuisance, and naturally feel that the exhorbitaot rates charged for a lunch was a mild graft. The only regretable feature of the excursion is ibst Harry Batholomew, who chartered the train, was loser to the extent of between $100 and $150. This was caused by the inclemency of the weather early Sunday, It began raining early in the morning and kept it np until 830 which caused many who intended going to remain at home. Bat after all the day turned to be an ideal one for the drive. A number of the Heppner boys went from the drive to Pendleton to visit for a day or two. Among them were Harry Bartholomew, Leilie and Jack Matlock, Victor Groahens and Albert Lalande. HI) Commissioners Proceedings. Commissioners court met in regular session January 6. 1904, with T. W.

Secretary Hitchcock by Direc tion of the President has No tified Oregon Delegation to Select Another Man for La Grande Land Office. G. W. Hunt of Portland who owns a large cattle ranch on Echo Meadows, near Foster station, in speaking of the market conditions of livestock says that the market at present is decidedly unsettled and quotations vary. This is caused by a scarcity of feed and the high price which hay is held at this time. Some raisers are selling off to avoid expense of feeding. Most of the cattle in the country now will be held for the spring market. Mr. Hunt thinks. But the loose stuff that ia in marketable condition is mostly picked up. He is feeding about 5-50 head for the spring market. Prices at tnie time will be much improved. It is his opinion that the size of the herds will be reduced and the quality of the stock brought up to the higher standard. During the past two or three years the greatest improvements have been brought about. DrarpiFiii$ iev Chicago, lu.., Oct., 2, 1302.

Secretary' Hitchcock has notified the Oregon delegation that Asa B. Thomson will not be reinstated in the La Grande land office, recommending that the dele gation name some other man as Thomson's successor, Thia action was Roosevelt. The Oregon senators apparently did everything in their power to conciliate the president, but nothing could be arrived at to restore Mr. Thomson to office. The general situation of the land offices in the West has been such as to cause a complete weeding out of officials who have been indicted, whether they had been proven guilty or entirely innocent. 80 00 2 2 00 3 00 53 00 12 00 EIGHT MILE.
