Before a crowd of 4000 people, H.
R. Hayworth' rode Steamboat to a
finish for the bucking crown of
Hcppner's seventh annual rodeo, as
the shades of evening fell on the
successful conclusion of the show
on Saturday. Saturday's crowd
was estimated to have been one of
the largest if not the largest ever
to attend the Rodeo, and many
were heard to praise the very high
caliber of the events and the snap-
piness with which they were given.
The crowds the first and second
days were also large compared to
The Rodeo Friday was paid an
official visit by Henry W. Collins,
president of the Pendleton Round
up association, who was quoted in
the Pendleton East Oregonlan.
Heppner a Rodeo deserves praise,
Mr. Collins said. "The events were
snappy and there were many excel!
ent performers on the program.'
Mr. Collins, accompanied by Roy
Raley and Richard Rice, prominent
Pendleton men, were cordially greet
ed by the stands when they rode
horseback around the track. Also
adding color to this year's show
was the presence of a cinema com
pany who took many "shots" of
events as well as some of their own
not connected with the Rodeo. Sat
urday the Btands got a thrill by hav
ing close-up views taken. It is un

Placing second in the bucking
contest was Duggan Smith, who
made a good ride on Black Dia

of the lot, while F. E. Stud neck re

Nine bronco-busters placed In the

The bucking furnished thrills a

eliminations were speedy. Thurs
day and Friday It looked somewhat
like the cowboys had a little the
best of It as more stayed than were
plied. But Saturday the broncs
proved to be more capable, showing
up the best, and the final outcome
was decided even before the Judges'
Of more than usual Interest to the
spectators were the performances
on Friday and Saturday of Buff
Brady, world's champion trick rid
er and fancy roper. In picturesque
attire, and using a beautiful white
horse with mouse colored spots,
uraay performed many daredevil
feats of trick riding. Among the
most dangerous of these was hang
ing over the rump of the horse, his
neaa Detwee nthe horses legs, hang
ing onto Btraps fastened to the sad
dle, while the horse was running at
iop speed. His trick roping was also
not only spectacular but skillful to
the extreme. Two cowgirls also en
tertained the Btands with exhibition
bronco-busting. These were Peggy
Adams and Genevieve Peterson,
both of whom made pretty rides
and exhibited their fearlessness of
the outlaw buckers.
Roping Time 27 Seconds.
Saturday's events were featured
by three accidents that necessitat
ed as many performers leaving the
held on stretchers. Jimmie Cush-
man suffered a concussion of the
brain when in attempting to catch
his steer too quick In the bulldog-
glng, he missed It completely, fall
ing to the ground on his head, Pow
der Face Tom suffered the fracture
of two ribs when thrown by Smithy
in the semi-finals, while BUI Clark
suffered injuries when thrown by
Muckamuck. All three were suf
ficiently recovered to be around the
first of the week.
Best time of 27 seconds In the calf
roping was made by R. R. Ingersoll
on Saturday, with second best time,
29 seconds, by Oral Zumwalt on Fri
day. Zumwalt and Alvln Gordon
evened the honors In the bulldog-
glng, each catching a steer in 14
seconds. Zumwalt, however, had the
best total time for the three days,
36 seconds, Gordon being second
with 46 and Buff Daniels third with
48. The calves were mighty elusive
this year and the majority of rop
ers turned In "no time," though the
lists of this event were crowded

JUDGE BUTLER HERE.
Judge R. R. Butler of The Dalles,
republican nominee for representa
tive In congress .from the second
Oregon district was a visitor In
Heppner on Monday, looking over
the political situation here. Mr.
Butler had returned to The Dalles
the end of the week from a trip
over the entire district, this being
his second visitation since the pri
maries, and he feels greatly en
couraged as to prospects of success
in the general election next month.
He seems well satisfied as to the
outlook, both for the national and
district republican party nominees.
We are sure that Judge Butler has
not failed to make many additional
friends in these visits over the dis
trict, and as people are getting bet
ter acquainted with him, the strong
er his support grows. He spent but
a few hours in Heppner, but this
was long enough for him to get the
drift here, and he was much en
couraged by the strong sentiment in
Prey of Hunters
Open season on China pheasants
and Hungarian partridges began in
Morrow county yesterday, and a
large number of local sportsmen as
well as many from outside bagged

abundance of this variety of game
in all parts of the county. The limit
is three roosters and one hen of
either Bpecies in any open day.
Hunting is premitted only on Wed
nesdays and Sundays during the
open season, which closes the last
of the month.
Many local hunters have their
dogs primed for the hunt L. Van
Marter, manager of the Peoples
Hardware company, has had two
dogs under a trainer at Eugene
since last season, and these with his
old stand-by Chief, will be used in

latter two having horses that placed

89 Take Fart
A chariot exhibition race was run
each day between teams furnished
by Sterling Fryrear and Orrin
Wright which proved a popular
feature with the crowds. The teams
were closely matched and a hot fast
race was run each day.
All told there were 89 participants
in the events, exceeding by more
than 30 the number to take part in
a previous Rodeo. Satisfaction on
every hand was evidenced with the
treatment received both at the
hands of the management and by
the Judges, John Kenny, Albert Pe
terson and Sterling Fryrear.
A final check on receipts has not
yet been made, though it is estimat
ed they will equal the largest re
ceipts of any previous year. Re
ceipts from several sources, how
ever, fell short. The dances did not
turn out so well as last year, and
the Inst day s receipts at the field
were short, due partly to the larger
number of season tickets disposed
of this year.

GRAIN. Although wheat prices
fluctuated somewhat, the general
tone of the bread grain market was
steady to firmer last week. India
and Russia are both reported to be

SEEDS. Red clover seed markets
were firmer again last week and
prices advanced on both cash sales
and futures. No red clover seed
was imported during the first two
weeks in September and very little
alsike, but white clover and hairy
vetch seed continued to arrive in
POTATOES. Some suggestion of
a reduction in the total potato crop
comes from reports of damage
from frost and disase, but on the

production is causing light with

crease of 19.5 per cent and the Land
Lakes Creameries, Inc., 13.31 per

September 22 compared to the same

scarcely steady last week.
LIVESTOCK. Choice cattle held

Domestic shipments and exports
are well above last year at this

Liverpool for combination fancy

The Canadian apple crop is expect
ed to be 5 per cent larger than last

The crop in British Columbia is
heavy but it is light in eastern pro

estimated 26 per cent below last

expected to be smaller than aver

be slightly above normal. A very
heavy acreage of winter lettuce is
in prospect in California, Arizona,
Texas and Florida.

Preliminary Survey Look

For months, and even years, the-'
city fathers have have before them
city fathers have had before them ;
provements ln the city's water sys
tem. Aa time has gone on, the need
for this Improvement has become
more imperative, and plana have
been slowly maturing to the begin
ning of the undertaking. At the
council meeting on Monday evening
preliminary steps were taken to
make a survey at the Intake, for the
purpose of getting an estimate on
cross-cutting the subteranean flow
of water at that point and L. R.
Stockman, civil engineer of Baker,
is now doing this work. Mr. Duran,
artesian well driller of Walla Walla,
was also here on Monday and met
with the council, and on Tuesday
took time only to make a hurried
survey of one or two sites where he
believes it would be proper to put
down wells. As to just what final
conclusions the council will come,
we will not be able to say until af
ter their meeting on the 15th, when
it is thought the plans will be work
ed out It would appear at this
time, however, that the council will
not consider a filtration plant at
all, because of the heavy cost of In
stallation and the expensive upkeep
of such a system; at least they are
advised against such a step by those
who have had experience. Should
artesian water be struck ln abund
ance at the intake, the question of
pure water, and clean water, would
be solved for all time to come.
At the Monday meeting the coun
cil decided to construct two new
bridges in the city, one at the cross

street and the other over Hinton
creek on Aiken street and bids for
this work are being called for by
