sleeper and diner attached to the
local train and arriving Sunday
morning, bringing officials and as
sociates from the offices of the Un
ion Pacific system, and the proces
sion leading to the cemetery was
one or the largest witnessed In
Heppner In many years.
Mr. Morrow had been connected
with the Union Pacific system for
some twenty years past as general
tax agent for the Oregon-Washing
ton Railroad and navigation com
pany, and was held In the highest
esteem by the officials because of
his genial disposition and splendid
business ability. He had reached
the age of 70 and the rules of the
company called for retirement on a
pension, but in his case an excep
tion was made, and but recently
action had been taken to continue
him In his position. It Is stated
that his is the only case in which
the retirement rule has been set
J. W. Morrow was the son of
Jackson L. and Nancy Morrow, pio
neers of the Northwest, being born
at Olympla, Wash., May 5. 1859, he
was aged 70 years and 11 days at
the time of his death. When a lad
about 4 years old he went with his
parents to La Grande, Oregon
where his father engaged In busi
ness and served a term as county
treasurer of Union county. In 1872
the family then moved to Heppner,
the elder Morrow again engaging
In the mercantile business with
Henry Heppner, for whom the town
was named, as a partner. Morrow
county was named for the elder Mr.
Morrow. The young man received
a good education through the
schools and by private laborious re
search, and for a number of years
engaged In business with his father,
later finishing a business course in
a college at San Francisco. He
added to his business qualifications
the study of law and was admitted
to the bar In 1898, but never follow
ed the law as a profession.
For eight years he served Morrow
county In an efficient manner as
clerk from 1890 to 1898 and upon
retirement from this office was elec
ted joint senator for the district
comprising Morrow, Grant and
Harney counties, and served well
his constituency in the halls of the
state legislature for four years. Af
ter retiring from the office of county
clerk, Mr. Morrow took over the
Palace hotel, which he owned, and
run It for some time, later disposing
of the property to Phlll Metschan.
Mr. Morrow was then appointed to
the position with the railroad com
pany that he held until his death,
removing with his family to Port
land, where they continued to re
side, nnd where Mr. Morrow accu
mulated valuable property and
built an elegant home.
He was married In Heppner on
December 16, 1885, to Katherine
Rca, and two children survive, Mrs.
Hazel Sutherland, and Jackson Lee
Morrow of Portland. Two other
children died In Infancy, and Mrs.
Morrow passed away In 1916.
Mr. Morrow was a high Mason,
having attained the degrees In both
York Rite and Scottish Rite Mason
ry, and was a member of Al Kader
temple, Nobles of the Mystic Shrine
of Portland. He was made a Mas
ter Mason In Heppner Lodge No.
69 when a young man, and while
he resided at Heppner was very
active In the work of this lodge
where he always retained his mem
bership. He was also a charter

Swaggart Horses Making
Good in Eastern States
A lot of interest was taken by
Morrow county folks last summer
as the training of the Swaggart
creamolines was progressing at the
Eastern Oregon Stock farm of B. F.
waggart under direction of J. M,
Christiansen. The training went on
for several months, and the high
school string was put In shape to be
shipped east in charge of their
trainer, to whom Mr. Swaggart
leased the animals. This training
has continued at the Brooklawn
Riding academy, Bridgeport, Conn.,
under this foremost educator, and
Oregon Sunshine and Oregon Sun
burst two of the stallions, are mak
ing a record. Under date of May 8,
1929, Mr. Christiansen writes Mr.
Swaggart as follows from Bridge
Have not written you for
so long as I had my horses booked
at the New Haven, Conn., Horse
show, and I wanted first to know
myself how everything would come
out The show was on May 3 and
4, two evening shows and one after
noon. Now I am very glad and so
Is Mrs. Christiansen, that we are
able to tell you that what you have
been hoping for always, and also
Mrs. Swaggart, has happened. I
had Sunshine and Sunburst entered
In the pair saddle class, one ridden
by a lady and one by myself, and we
won the first prize, two blue ribbons
ana two sliver cups Owing to a
mistake In printing, the horses were
entered as geldings, but before the
class started I had It announced to
the audience that the two horses
were stallions. The horses are all
fine and in good shape."
Mr. Swaggart is gretaly pleased
with this report as he considers it
ono of the most important winnings
that can be made.

Between sixty and seventy dele
gates, including the most of the
ministers and their wives of the
Christian churches of Eastern Ore

convention at the Church of Christ
in this city, beginning with Tuesday
evening. At the opening session,
the local church had charge of the

of Pendleton, president made the
opening address on "The Lordship
of Christ" This was well received,
and the addresses at each session
since have been of a like high order.
The music has also been one of the
splendid features. This has been in
charge of Mrs. Drill, who is a splen
did leader of song. With Ruben
Wheeler of Pendleton to assist,
there has been a feast of good
things in the musical line. At the
Wednesday evening session, the
musical program was augmented by
fine bass solo, rendered by Dan
Lindsey of Alpine.
The convention has been well
cared for by the local church and
it has been a religious gathering of
high order, many very splendid
people coming to our little city from
the outside. We were not able to
get the list of delegates upon going
to press, but practically every
church in the Eastern Oregon dis
trict was represented.

fast, Ireland, of Scotch descent He
came to Morrow county in 1888

tne two settled on a ranch at the
forks of Willow creek about 12 miles
southeast of this city. The brothers
accumulated a large body of land
adjacent to Willow creek and ex

many years they followed the stock
industry, raising sheep and cattle
and making a success of this ven
ture. They retired from the ranch
in 1919, coming to Heppner to live.

purchased a nice home and lived
until his demise.

ciation among men he formed many
fast friendships and these all re

years of comfort following the hard
struggle necessary in bringing about
success in his line of endeavor. He
had assisted in making the Mc

the county, being just the character
of man that could not be content

hard labor expended that were fin

It was mostly to cut down on ex
penses that Manager Ferguson let
Clair LaMear off, but "Bus" Gentry
who succeeded him Sunday at Fos
sil, caught a mighty pretty game.
This was not the only change seen
In the line-up, for Gentry's removal
from first put Harold Erwln on that
sack, and the absence of VanMarter
and Thorn gave "Crocky" Sprouls
and "Bub" Bleakman their jobs at
second and in the left pasture. Such
a shake-up boded disaster, for Fos
sil waa touted to have a strong
team, but this was not the case.
The boys put everything they had
into the game and emerged victor
ious, 3-2,. Fossil's two runs were
made the first inning before Hepp
ner's new aggregation found out
they were really all together, some
errors and one hit being responsible
for the tallies. Bub Bleakman,
Sprouls and DeVaney tallied for
Heppner in the fourth. Bleakman
walked, and Sprouls and DeVaney
each knocked double-baggers, which
combined with Erwin's single netted
Bramlett on the mound for Fossil
was wild, allowing four walks In all,
while Drake, pitching for the locals,
pitched what Is said to have been
his best game so far this season.
