Man to Lok Over Local Pro­
ject Recently.
F. G. Kanfsinger of North Dakota,
a member of the colonization com­
mittee of a certain religious sect in
that state, was in Hermiston this
week looking over the local project
as a possible site for a western colon­
ization of the order. Mr. Knafsin-
ger has spent the past two months
visiting in various western states
and on projects similar to this one
with a view to selecting a suitable
site for the colony. He made an ex­
tensive tour of the entire Umatilla
project by automobile and appeared
to be favorably impressed with the
unimproved lands in this region. He
is returning immediately to Nortli
Dakota where he will make a report
to the heads of the order.
Approximately two hundred famil­
ies will make up the proposed col­
ony, according to Mr. Knafsinger,
and every effort will be made to be­
gin colonization in some western
state by early spring. No exact men­
tion of tbe amount of capital the
coIonlstB expect to invest was given,
but it might be inferred from Mr.
Knafsinger’s brief outline of the pro­
posed colony that a goodly sum of
money will be permanenly Invested
in the site finally decided upon.

After parking it on one of the side

not to be found. The printer searched
