Night Schedule Is Con
sidered by O-W. R. &.N.
For Heppner Branch.
J. P. O'BRIEN VISITS
General Manager Believea Change
Beneficial; la Pleased With Con
ditions I n This District.
Heppner may have night train ser
vice in the near future in place of
the present day service, if action now
being taken by the Oregon-Washington
Railroad and Navigation com
pany results favorably. The matter
was presented to the business men of
the city on Tuesday and the majority
of them sanctioned the change.
This step is being considered by the
company on the belief that the change
will give better mail and express ser
vice to its patrons on this branch,
said J. P. O'Brien, general manager
of he O.-W. R. & N. company, in an
interview this morning. Mr. O'Brien
and other officials of the company
were here over last night in behalf of
this and other company interests.
Condon business men have asked for
this change on their branch line and
practical assurance has been given
them that it will be made, Mr. O'Brien
The proposed schedule for this
branch under the new arrangement is
as follows: Leave Heppner 12:30 a.
m., arrive Heppner Junction 3:15 a.
m.; leave Heppner Junction on re
turn at 4 a. m., arrive Heppner 6:30
a. m. Connection on the main line
would be with trains 25 and 26. This
would give the Heppner branch towns
12 hours earlier service on parcel
post, mail and express, as well as
overnight passenger service into Port
land, which, in the opinion of the of
ficials should meet with favor.
, In regard to the freight handling,
Mr. O'Brien said in effect:
The only difference in the freight
handling will be that it will arrive in
the morning instead of in the eve
ning. Since the freight is not de
livered in Heppner until the follow
ing morning after it arrives, under
the present schedule, merchants would
get it at the same time under the new
schedule, as the train would arrive in
the morning earlier than the usual
time for delivery now. It would be
better not to have a change in the
freight schedule on the main line,
since starting trains out of Portland
earlier would necessitate setting ear
lier closing hours for receiving the
freight, and hence a shorter period of
the day in which orders could be filled
and put on the cars. With quicker
mail service into Portland, it would
be possible, however to receive freight
shipments here about a day sooner
than is possible under the present
Mr. O'Brien said that no definite
action has as yet been taken by the
company for a change on this branch,
but that it is being seriously consid
ered and might be expected at any
time. Twenty-five Heppner business
men have sanctioned the change.
With regard to crop prospects over
the entire eastern Oregon and east
ern Washington country, Mr. O'Brien
said reports were very favorable. He
was glad to note the encouraging con
ditions surrounding our city and
county and felt encouraged to believe
that the advanced condition of crops
and abundance of moisture practic
ally assured a bumper harvest. The
fruit harvest in both Oregon and
Washington will be abundant, he says,
very little damage having resulted
from frosts, and none of the fruit
having been hurt with the possible
exception of some cherry, apricot,
and other soft fruit trees.
The officials left Heppner in their
private coach on this morning's train.
In Heppner Today
Frederick Steiwer, republican can
didate for United States senator from
Oregon, is In Heppner today accom
panied by a delegation of Pendleton
business men. At noon a luncheon was
held at the Elkhorn in the interests
of his candidacy, attended by a large
number of his supporters in this city.
Among those who accompanied Mr.
Steiwer are Mr. and Mrs. Pat Lon
ergan, Roy W. Ritner, Jack Mulligan
and Miss Frazier, who composed the
party in Mr. Ritner's car, Mr. Stei
wer was given a warm reception here,
and feels hopeful of carrying this
district by a considerable majority.
The delegation will go on to lone this
DEPOT BEING MOVED.
The O.-W. R. & N. depot In this
city is being moved some 280 feet
nearer the city. A work crew started
the work the first of the week, and
the building Is now being raised pre
paratory to putting it on the skids.
When it is relocated considerable ren
ovating will be done, to put it in
shape for handling freight. The
freight room and platform will be
raised to the height of the freight
car doors, facilitating unloading of
freight from the cars as well as re
loading on trucks. The moving makes
the depot accessible to vehicles from
the north platform, which has been
impossible in the paBt.
IN TRAIN SERVIG
Charter Roll Includes 25 Names;
Site Chosen and Profes
sional Makes Plans.
With a charter membership of 25,
the Heppner Country club was organ
ized last Thursday evening at the
council chambers in Heppner. Earl
W. Gordon was elected president of
the organization, and E. H. Hallock,
secretary-treasurer. The purpose of
the club is the immediate establish
ment of a golf course.
The site for the course has been
selected on the hill just east of town,
and it was marked out the first of the
week by Jack Routledge, professional
in charge of the Hood River course.
Mr. Routledge laid out the course and
made plans for nine holes, and he de
clared that when put in shape it will
be one of the sportiest courses in the
country. The kick-oft tee will be
situated near the drinking fountain
on the Hinton creek road just around
the bend from the schoolhouse, and
the finish hole will be located but a
short distance from the start.
Committees have been appointed to
push the work of the club, and it is
hoped to have the greens laid and
fairways put in shape for playing in
side a few weeks. The committees
appointed by President Gordon are:
Constitution and by-laws, C. L.
Sweek and Roger Morse; head of
greens committee, L. Van Marter;
membership, Ed Bennett, J. Crawford,
Dr. Johnston and H. Hill.
An initial membership fee of $10
is being charged to raise money for
starting the work, and it is expected
a small amount for dues will be set
later. Membership has been thrown
open to everyone at this rate.
Town Tearn Victors
Over Masonic Nine
The onslaught of the town team
ball boys proved too much for the
Masonic nine, in the five inning clash
on Rodeo field Friday aftenoon, and
they suffered defeat by an 8-2 score.
Two of the regulars were missing
from the latter's lineup, to which
their defeat is accredited. These
were Doc Farrior, center fielder and
moundsman, and James Couston, out
fielder, both heavy stickers.
It is rumored that the Elks have
now organized a team, and that there
will shortly be things doing jn the
Twilight league. The Masons won
the opener from the K. of P.
New Ferguson Building
To Be Started at Once
Contract for the new Ferguson ga

located in the Garrigues building.
The site on which the building will
stand is on the corner of May and

COYOTE ATTACKS CHILD.
Melvin. the three-year-old son of
Mrs. Brady of Jordan Siding, suf
fered severe lacerations and bruises
Sunday afternoon at the Gibson home
on Rhea creek. Several small chil-
cren were nlaying in the yard near a
oet coyote that was chained to a post,
when the animal broke loose and at
tacked Melvin. Before help could
reach him the animal, a two-year-old,
had knocked the child over and torn
his flesh severely. On being rushed
to the Morrow General hospital in
Heppner he was ffiven a eeneral an
esthetic, the wounds wore cauterized
and the necessary stitches taken. He
was able to return home Monday af
ternoon and is reported to be recov

SEVEN KINDS OF PEOPLE.
There may be seven different colors
or races but we do not have that in
mind. There may be seven different
types of mind (or seven hundred)
but we are not thinking of that either.
It is possible that there are seven (or
more) political viewpoints in our
country but we are not concerned with
that just now either. It is possible,
however, to divide people into seven
classes religiously speaking; this will
be done with the help of the black
board at the Church of Christ on
The morning sermon will be enti
tled, "Two Crosses."

us keep it that way. And Christian

ECHO DEFEATS IONE.
In the Tri-County league game at
lone Sunday, the Echo team defeated
the Egg City boys 6-0. The strong
hitting of the Umatilla team, com
bined with the loose support given
pitcher Roberts was responsible.
Echo's strong battery, Berry on the
mound and Charlie Hoskins receiv

The oiling crew employed by the
engineer department of the state high

work between Heppner Junction and
Arlington and will soon finish the
work as far as Blalock. When this is
completed the crew will move to Biggs

BE GIVEN GRAVES
AT WELLS SPRINGS
Pioneer Pathfinders Buried In
North End of County to Have
Resting Places Marked.
Through the efforts of the Daugh
ters of the American Revolution, the
graves of tome twenty or more of the
early emigrants to the Pacific North
west, now in an unprotected state at
Wells Springs in the north end of
Morrow county, will be properly
marked and protected.
Last Thursday Frank Gilliam, W.
P. Mahoney, Walter Moore and Joe
Kirschner of this city went to Wells
Springs, and a piece of land, 90x200
feet was marked off. This tract will
contain within its boundaries all the
graves that anything is known about,
and arrangements will soon be com
pleted for placing around this a good
substantial fence. Iron posts will be
placed, set in concrete, and then a
strong wire fencing attached, mak-
ng construction of a permanent na
ture. These gentlemen also select
ed a very fine piece of granite which
was located near the James Carty
place, and this is to be brought to
Wells Springs and placed as a marker.
To this stone will be attached a
bronze plate containing as near as
possible the names of all the pioneeT
pathfinders buried there.
Some funds will be required to do
this work, and while the Heppner
community has been asked for a com
paratively small sum, Mrs. W. P. Ma
honey, who has charge of the matter
of getting funds here, expects there
wjll be no difficulty in securing much
more than the quota. Quite a num
ber have already signified their will
ingness to aid, and it is expected that
residents of Gilliam county will also
make donations and the necessary
amount for completing the fencing
and marking the graves will be forth
coming. Heppner Wins Second

Heppner meets Helix next Sunday,
when with Fred Roberts in the box
they expect to put up a good game.
Fred Roberts Signs 0
With Heppner Club
Fred Roberts, youthful ball twirler,
who opened the season on the mound
for lone, has signed with the local
aggregation and will make his first
appearance under his new contract
Sunday when Heppner faces Helix on
the local grounds. Though young in
years, Fred is getting to be an old
head at the pitching game. He hails
from Portland, and was first intro
duced to these parts when he pitched
for the locals two years ago.
The addition of Roberts will ma
terially strengthen the Heppner club,
as it has been weak in the mound lo
cation, and the locals are now hopeful
of winning the majority of their
games. Helix has a strong team, and
other good nines are being placed on
the Heppner schedule. Heppner has
her pick at any loose teams tlrs year,
as she is playing independent ball.
GOOD SMOKER SCHEDULED.
