Subscription $2.00 a Year con DECIDES E Under New System User Will Pay Only For Amount Used. WATER COMING SOON Council Authorizes Lions Club to Proceed With Street Signing, House Numbering Project That all residents of the city may have equal privileges of using the water from Heppner's new artesian well, and that none may longer be handicapped by .qualms of con science that prevented them from detaching nozzles and letting the water run from the open-mouthed hose through the hours of darkness, was assured by action of the city council Monday night when that body voted to meter the city water service. The motion was put through by unanimous ballot of the full council without much discus sion, it appearing all minds were made up that this was the course to follow. H. T. Judson, representing a com pany specializing in water meters, demonstrated his company's prod uct, and in a short sales talk reiter ated arguments favoring installa tion of the meter system, that many times before had been talked at council meetings. The arguments summed up in a nutshell are that the water user pays for exactly what he uses, and Is given the priv ilege of using all he pleases. Estimated Cost $12. Just how soon the meters may be expected, or what the new rates will be, was not made known. An estimate of the cost of the meters was given at approximately $12 each installed. With 356 services In Heppner at the present time, the total estimated cost of installation would be $4,272. The council did not express Itself as to the method of financing the project, but Mr. Judson on being questioned as to the policy generally followed, said a majority of cities bought and Installed the meters themselves, the meters thus remaining1 city prop erty. This method, he though, has proved more satisfactory than hav ing the users pay for the meters, as in the latter case the meters be come the property of the water us ers and are not subject to the same free city supervision. That users will probably not pay less for water Is Indicated, because the new rate basis must be suffi cient to insure revenue for cost of operating the distribution system, salaries of wator department em ployees, and retirement of bonds with Interest on outstanding bond ed Indebtedness. Connection Speeded. Heppner may expect the new wa ter as soon as it is humanly possi ble to get It here, the council show ing this to be its firm intention by authorizing the watermaster to get pipe on the ground at the earliest possible date for connecting the ar tesian flow with the present pipe line. L. R. Stockman of Baker, hy draulic engineer who has had charge of former water works im provement for the city, was present at the meeting. He has been spend ing several days in consultation with the council and city watermas ter in laying plans for taking care of the flow at the well. He warned the council that the present pipe line down the creek would not stand the pressure of the full flow from the well, and that it would be nec essary to regulate the flow. If this is done, he believes there would be no necessity of any major improve ments on the line at the present time. He recommended using 10 inch steel, or other durable metal pipe, to connect up with the well, thus assuring permanency of this part of the construction. Bounty Spot Considered. Councilmen showed their real joy and exultation over obtaining the fine artesian water by expressing a desire to have the site made Into a beauty spot and to preserve to view, if possible, the gushing silvery stream as It comes from the ground. To see If this desire may prove fea sible, Mr. Stockman was authorized to draw plans for a fountain, the construction of which will be con sidered more fully when the esti mated cost is determined. There Is a feeling that the advent of such a boon to the city's prosperity is worthy of a monument to indelibly mark It for all time. Street signs and house numbers for the city are nearer to becoming a reality through the council's en dorsement of the plan presented by the Lions club committee working In conjunction with the streets and public property committee of the council. A check has been made on the number of signs and numbers needed, and the Lions club commit tee was authorized to proceed with the project. The system adopted calls for numbering of houses east and west from Main street and north and south from May street, making these streets dividing lines, and the base from which numbers will start. House numbers will be put in place by the Lions club with the help of the Boy Scouts, the num bers being furnished by the city. R METERS MORROW SHERIFF TAKES CRIMINAL Wilbur McFall Arrested, Charged With Passing Bogus Currency At Heppner Hotel. Wilbur McFall, alias F. A. deLong, was arrested Saturday morning at Arlington, by C. J. D. Bauman, county sheriff, on a charge of pass ing bogus currency. McFall spent Friday night at Hotel Heppner and when he checked out Saturday, paid his bill with a counterfeit $20 bill. That the money was counterfeit was not discovered by Al Rankin, manager, until McFall had taken the stage for Arlington. Sheriff Bauman was notified, and after notifying O. E. Van Winkle, Arlington marshal, to be on the lookout for the wanted man, took up the pursuit by automobile. While in Heppner McFall had been wear ing a blue blazer. The stage was overtaken at the edge of Arlington where it had been stopped by Marshal Van Win kle and E. R. Pyle, state traffic officer. The officers inquired of the driver, "Is deLong aboard?" and he said that deLong had gotten off at lone. McFall (deLong) reiterated the assertion. The man that was believed by the driver to have been deLong was Charles McElligott of lone. The fact that McFall had re moved his blazer and substituted a blue coat and a tan raincoat de ceived the officers for a time. The stage was allowed to proceed to the Arlington terminal, where as usual, it made a stop of 40 minutes. During that time McFall was taken to the Arlington jail where he was searched. The officers found only $18 in cash on his person. His suit case, which had been left on the stage was found, and in it his blue blazer. A billfold containing seven bogus $20 bills was found under the seat in which he had been rid ing. He was returned to Heppner and lodged in the county jail. William McSwain, U. S. secret service opera tive of Portland was notified and came here to get McFall Sunday. Mr. McSwain and Tom Gurdane, Umatilla county sheriff, took the prisoner to Pendleton, where it was believed that he had passed a spur ious bill. It is thought that the plant in which the bills were manu factured is located in Eugene. McFall has a penitentiary record of having served three terms. He served at McNeils Island, Wash., for robbing the postofflce at lone about 15 years ago. For forging a check, he received a term at the Oregon state penitentiary at Salem. His other term at McNeil's was on a counterfeiting charge. On that offense he raised bills from $1 de nomination to $10. Mrs. Anna Swick Weds W. 0. Bayless Saturday Mrs. Anna M. Swick of Manument became the bride of Wilson O. Bay less of Heppner in a marriage cer emony performed at Monument by Rev. J. F. Cookson, pastor of the Presbyterian church, at 5:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The nuptial ceremonies were conducted in the presence of Mrs. Bayless' mother, Mrs. T. G. Cochran, her son, W. H. Swick and Mrs. Swick and family. Mr. and Mrs. Bayless have been spending their honeymoon at Mt. Vernon and John Day, visiting at the home of Mrs. Bayless sister, Mrs. Louis Morris, in the latter city. The couple will take up residence in Heppner, as Mr. Bayless has property interests here.

An official map of the naming and numbering system together with an ordinance outlln Ing the plan and putting It in force haye been authorized and will be properly recorded when completed Chas. B. Cox appeared before the council to ask for improvement of Morgan street where it connects with the Heppner flat road. The county Is doing some Improvement work on this road at the present time, and the council acting on Mr. Cox' suggestion that now Is an op portuno time to do Its part, author ized such improvement as may be necessary to put the street In good condition. The council also moved to see what could be done toward getting a right of way for stock that would come Into town below the road, so that It would not be noccs sary for stock to come In over the road grade. This was said to bo a big factor In tearing down the grade, as well as proving a nuisance to residents on Morgan street.

OREGON BANKERS ASSIST FARMERS National Banking Group Places State First in Cooperative Work in Farm Interest Farmers of Oregon who have had more direct cooperation from their bankers in the form of banker-farmer agricultural projects than those of any other state during 1929. This fact was revealed with the award ing last week of first place to Ore gon by the American Bankers' as sociation in the annual grading of the state associations for their year's activities. The 240 bankers of Oregon spent close to $30,000 directly for banker farmer projects, such as providing prizes for fairs, financing seed dis tribution to farmers or club mem bers, hiring private agricultural workers, and many other similar activities. Much of the work was carried on in connection with the Oregon State college extension service, the director of which has been invited to the national convention of the American Bankers' association to assist Oregon banker representativ es in making an Oregon exhibit there. Only the winning state is accorded this privilege. The record of the Oregon bankers is the highest ever made, being ac tually rated "perfection plus." Geor gia was second and Kentucky third. Banking officials who have been leaders in the work are Eugene Courtney, Woodburn, chairman of the state bankers' association; Ted Cramer, state secretary; and C. C. Colt, Portland, Oregon representa tive on the national agricultural commission.

Patterson, chair man of the campaign announced. In addition the club will offer a gun as a prize to the boy or girl bringing in the largest number of eggs and heads. George Joseph Heard. Displaying a keen sense of humor and expert use of satire, rebuke and ridicule, George W. Joseph of Port land, republican candidate for gov ernor, spoke before the meeting, his main theme being hydro-electric de velopment by the people. In Intro ducing his address, the state sena tor from Portland alluded to his recent "mess" with the state su preme court, declaring that two months ago he would not have con sidered accepting the certificate of election to the office he now seeks had it been offered him. He gave as a reason for his becoming a can didate, the demands of friends that he make a campaign of vindication, following the "shuttle-cock mess." He recited a short autobiography in which he established his nation ality as a "native son" of California, early life on the farm, and his 40 years' law practice in Portland, frankly admitting his ability to "keep next to the money" in the latter period. His discussion of the power situation included document ary evdience of corruption in the existing "power trust." He assert ed that rates are continually mount ing under private ownership of hydro-electric utilities, and that this is working against Oregon's progress. Development Plead For. "Not one horsepower of electri city is generated on the Columbia river in Oregon," he declared in his plea for development of Oregon's great river. Senator Joseph said that development of the Columbia had long been a hobby of his and that much of his own time and mon ey had been expended toward this end. He quoted figures showing the tremendous potential power possi bilities of the river. "The difference between private and public ownership lies in the fact that private companies do not in stall a service until the demand al ready exists, while the government builds a power project and adver tises cheap power to the world. Industries follow cheap power, he asserted, and thus the country is built up. Commission Opposed. In advocating the abolishment of the public service commission, the senator accused this body of exist ing for the benefit of the public utility corporations. In substantia ting this statement he said that un der a law authorizing the public service commission to give public utility companies a fair return on their investment, in the case of pow er companies the commission had allowed costs of merchandising elec trical appliances to be listed as ex pense, above which the companies are allowed a fair income, and thus competing merchants are forced to pay part of this merchandising cost through their power bills. Another instance of laxity on the part of the commission was said to lie In the fact that a large power company holding water rights did not have to account for, as part of Its Income, more than two million dollars received from the sale of wa ter to pulp mills. This on top of alleged "watering" of capital stock on which the power company's rate basis is figured to give it a "fair re turn" on Investment. Mr. Joseph gave as the third plank of his platform, "free speech," asserting it to be an Inherent right of an American citizen, and neces sary to the free interchange of Ideas. Ho said he would continue his policy of speaking what he be lieved, "until I am gagged." He con cluded with a plea for eternal vig ilance on the pnrt of the people His speech held the Lions club a full hour past Its usual adjourning time, An entertainment feature enjoy ed by the Lions and guests was the appearance of Miss Helen Fal- 4-H BOYS, GIRLS RECEIVE AWARDS Scholarships to Summer School At Corvallis Given Members For Winning Projects. Six members of Morrow county 4-H clubs will attend the sixteenth annual 4-H club summer school at Oregon State college, Corvallis, June 9-21 on scholarships received as prizes for their exhibits in the North Morrow County fair in Irri- gon last fall. Winners of scholarships provided by the county are: Myrtle Green, Eight Mile, poultry; Owen Bleak man, Hardman, garden; Dorothy Isom, Irrigon, sewing; Gwendolyn Corey, Irrigon, cooking; George Graves, Boardman, won the schol arship offered by the First National bank of Heppner to sheep club members.

Club members, other than those winning scholarships, who are elec ted as delegates, or who pay their own expenses, may attend the sum mer school. The cost of the 4-H club summer school per member is $15 for the two weeks. This amount approximately covers the actual cost of room and board. The Union Pacific system is offering a special railroad fare of $8.60 for round trip transportation between any point on its lines in Morrow county and Corvallis. Mrs. Lucy E. Rodgers, county school superintendent, will act as chaperone for the Morrow county delegation to the summer school. The summer school is the out standing 4-H club activity of the year which enables club members from all over the state to gather for additional instruction in sub jects relating to their club projects. It differs from practically every other camp for boys and girls in that it has organized for instruction in agriculture and home economics besides affording opportunity for recreation and organized play.

MM Establishment of Stock Highway for Future to be Undertaken. APPRAISER SPEAKS Watering Improvements, Shearing of Sheep Have Part During Meeting of Permittees. Completion of arrangements for use of the driveway from the Uma tilla forest boundary to the John Day highway for the 1930 season were announced at the meeting of the Umatilla Permittees association at the American Legion hall Mon day evening The use of the drive way for sheep and cattle has been obtained through leases, purchases and agreements with owners along the 6 mile route which will per mit entrance to and exit from the grazing areas of the forest without the owners being taxed by exhorbi tant tolls. The association is work ing towards the establishment of the driveway as a permanent thing. To defray the costs this year, a charge of one cent per head on sheep and cattle using the driveway will be made No charge will be made for lambs Last year nearly 41,000 head of sheep went over the driveway. Driveway Worked For Dillard French, Jack Hynd, L. P. Davidson, and J. G. Barratt, serving on the driveway committee of the association have spent much time in getting the driveway opened. Valued assistance has been given by the Umatilla county court and the U. S. forest service, and both organizations stand ready to aid in effecting its permanence. By un animous vote of the assembly the four committee members were named trustees for the driveway. They in turn appointed Charles W. Smith secretary-treasurer. To put the plan on a sound financial basis and to meet obligations incurred by the committee, owners who use the trail made advance payments for the sheep that they plan to take over the driveway this season. Let ters are being sent to other owners who have used It In the past In or der that their cooperation and crossing fees may be obtained. James Good, wool appraiser for Draper and company, Boston, which is handling the wool clip of the Na tional Wool Marketing corporation, told of the arrangements made for purchase and loans on the growers' wool. Joe Sears, secretary of the Washington Wool Grower asso ciation, was scheduled to address the meeting but was called to San Francisco. 90 Per Cent Advanced A 90 per cent advance on the ap praised value of the wool is al lowed this year. The appraiser fig ures the shrinkage and value of the wool. Scour limits are set, and it is just a matter of figures the actual amount received by the grower, for no "trading" is allowed under the federal farm board's plan. Descrip tions of the wools appraised are sent to both the National corpora tion and to Draper and company. After giving his talk, Mr Good an swered questions asked by the growers. The committee working for the establishment of cattle rest stations along the driveways reported a number of letters had been sent out, and that no action had been taken, as no replies had been received. Satisfactory progress in the re moval of stray horses from the ranges is being made according to the statement of the committee hav ing control over the work. Fred Gerkin is in charge of the round-up.
