Greenfield Grange of Boardman
proved themselves royal hosts on Sat
urday when they entretained the Po
mona Grange. There was a large at
tendance and all features were en
joyed by the guests. The program in
the afternoon was open to the public
and an address by W. A. Daliell, pri
vate secretary of Governor Pierce,
was well received. Governor Pierce
had been invited to attend but was
unable to come so sent Mr. Dazell as
his representative. His talk was of a
political nature which is to be ex
pected at this time of the year. Bert
lianey, nominee for U. S. Senator was
present and spoke very interestingly.
Boardman has now heard both the
democratic and republican nominees
for senator, both men have pleasing
personalities; both speak fluently and
clearly on the issues of the day, and
it would seem that the all important
matter of whom to vote for must be
decided on the question of voting for
principles and not for men, an adage
which has become almost obsolete in
the last few years. In the evening
the Grange held their regular work.
A pleasing addition was some hallow
e'en stunts put on by the various
Granges represened. A sumptuous
dinner was served at noon and anoth
er elaborate meal in the evening. Po
mona Grange is composed of all the
granges in the county and meets ev
ery quarter. The Irrigon boys band
played several selections. Mrs. Chas.
Nizer baked a gorgeous cake for Gov
ernor Pierce and sent it to him by
Mr. Daltell. Mrs. Nizer is famous
for her fine cakes and Governor
Pierce was a fortunate recipient.
