the Heppner party missed a $600,000
fire which destroyed several build
ings in a quarter of the city.
Leaving Vancouver, the Turners
started for Revelstoke, a drive of
approximately 450 miles. They had
planned to cover the distance in
one day but Mother Nature had
other plans which halted them. A
cloudburst between Lytton and
Spence's Bridge created havoc with
the highway and the travelers,
along with several hundred others,
were marooned for several hours
while highway and railroad crews
cleared debris from their lines. In
this connection, Turner told of an
incident which proves that luck
travels with some people. A young
woman was driving along the high
way when the cloudburst struck.
She had just crossed the bridge
when it went out Shortly after
that the slide which held up travel
for hours covered the highway just
The Heppner party did not reach
Revelstoke that night They stayed
at Kamloops, driving on to Revel
stoke the next day. There they
took the train, passengers, baggage
and car, and rode for about 115
miles, passing through the 5-mile
Connaught tunnel, said to be the
longest double track bore in the
world. This stretch of railroad
crosses the roughest part of the
Rockies. The train was left at
Golden and the party drove to Field,
near where the Columbia runs down
one side of the divide and the Mis
souri starts its course toward the
midwest of the United States.
Lake Louise is a beautiful place
and Banff was found to be very
popular with people who had more
money than anything else. To the
Heppner travelers, the national
parks, three of which, Yoho, Banff
and Kootenai, were visited, there
was much of interest. The native
wild animals and other wild life
add color to the picture, while the
roads within the parks are much
better than the highways leading to
The return to Heppner was made
on Highway 395, the Three Flags
route, through Spokane to Pasco.
At a point on the Oregon side below
Wallula the Turners came upon a
wreck in which three women were
badly injured. The sight of one
woman badly burned, another with
three fractures on one limb, and
the third woman with an injured
back had a tendency to take the
joy out of the trip. Aside from this
unpleasant feature, the travellers
recommend a Jaunt to British Co

Mr. Pierce pointed to the fact
that during his term as governor
he urged the highway commission
to ride down into the John Day
valley and see what could be done
about a highway through the re
gion. The commission's report was
not favorable at first but eventual
ly the road was built and the bene
fits to the region have fully justi
fied every dollar spent The speak

glowing tribute as the originator

Mr. Baldock recited some history
of the Oregon highway system and
the John Day highway in particu
lar, with reference to the new road,
assuring his listeners that the mon

the most good.
Senator Duncan of Burns made a
plea for support to the legislature
in the matter of fighting against

Mr. Aldrich represented the high,

with much of the responsibility in
getting this piece of highway work
allocated and In getting it pushed
inrough to completion.
Mr. Allen, Mr. Powers and Mr.

Musical numbers were furnished
by several Long Creek young peo

unable to resist the demand for a

Johnson, then Mrs. Rasmus, lived
many years in Heppner and always
finds it a great pleasure to visit
her friends here.
NEW BRIDGE AT MONUMENT.
A new bridge over the north fork
of the John Day river at Monu
ment is nearing completion. The
new structure is of reinforced con
crete and of a type in common use
on the highways of the state. Ap
proach fills are being made and it
is expected the span will be In use
in a few weeks. The new struc
ture will displace the old, narrow
steel span that has served for many
I The John Day river Is unusually
low this year, as is the case with
most of the streams in the north
west. Ranchers along the' river
have put up good hay crops, how

apparent. Business buildings and
residences in Monument are in good
repair, indicating that conditions
are good in that vicinity.

W. O. Bayless, Carl Cason and

party that flew to Long Creek last

ner, who spent Friday night in
Heppner on his way to Bend.
