and declared that Mr. liurlingame
would bring suit against the city for
the full value of the horse unless the
$r0 were returned.
Councilman McDonald was of the
opinion that Burlingame knew where
the hoi mi was, and that it was let out
of a pasture near this city with the
express purpose of making trouble for
the town authorities. He moved,
though, that a warrant be drawn to
refund Mr, liurlingame tho amount
received for sale of the horse. Mar

into this street. The city council has
several timos issued the order for
their removal, but no attention has
been paid to the matter by the prop
erty holder, other than to say ho will
bring suit for a retention of tho land.
Monday night the marshal was once

but it was impossible to go far in the

U. S. soldiers who served in Cuba
during the Spanish war know what
this disease is, and that ordinary rem

much water. Cuban diarrhoea is al
most as severe and dangerous as a mild
attack of cholera. There is one remedy,
however, that can always be depended
upon as will be seen by the following
cerliticate ft'imi Mrs. Minnie Jacobs of
Houston, Texas: "I hereby certify
that Chanilierlain's Colic, Cholera anrl

BIG TOMATO CROP
AT WHITE SALMON
By a Staff Correspondent.
WhiU Salmon, Wash., Aug. 9. -The
tomato crop this year will be the larg
est in the history of the valley. Last
year It waa a record breaker, but this
year will eclipse auy yield ever pro
duced here. S. C. Ziegler, who has
about one acre, will market over 40
tons. The price has held up flue.
Adams fc Brenneman wl J be about the
largest shippers. They have been
marketing over one hundred crates
per day. William Rankin on the War
ner farm and Mr. Henderson have
been heavy shippers a has also Cole
man & Moore on the Byrkett farm.
The harvest this year will last about
two mouths in some of the patohes.
It could be made to last longer, but
the price at the end of the market
would be small, making it impossible
for the shippers and growers at this
point to compete with the home mar
ket, owing to the transportation rates.
with big berry crop atd a mam
moth tomato crop iu the valley, it is
no wonder that the ranchers do not
want any road to pass along destroy
ing the valuable tracts. Said Mr.
Ziegler: "This railroad talk really
does give me a great deal of concern,
and I would like to see it held off for
at least two years; then they can have
the ranch and I will go in the apple
growing business." E, L. C.
That Hood River Spirit.
The Heppner Gazette oopleg the
Portland Journal's editorian on the
Hood River berry crop and then adds:
Good for Hood River. Such reports
are gratifying to the people of the
whole state of Oregon. The fact that
Hood River has sold $200, 000 worth of
strawberries and will have a good ap
ple crop will be known all over the
country, and why? Simply because
the people there are enterprising aud
proud of their productive valley aud
are lettiug the outside world know all
about it. The couseqeuces are that
the Hood River valley is becoming
thickly populated and the town of
Hood River is growing and prosper
ous. The Hood River spirit comes out
with an interesting story. They pin
it on the lapels of their coats. They
put it on banners. They placard
every oar that leaves the town. They
get In the newspapers. The people
pull together. tiler enterprise aud
the publicity that they give to their
prosperity impresses the stranger.
A little comparason might make
Heppner people think a little. The
Hood River valley today probably has
as much population as the eutire
county of Morrow. Ihe town of Hood
River has at least oue-thiid popula
tion greater than Heppner.
Heppner this season has shipped oat
and sold 9500.000 worth of wool. Who
saw a single car plaoarded telling any
thing about it? On the long trip east
how many people knew anything
about these cars? Heppner wocl
brought $.'100,000 more than Hood
River strawberries and wool money is
just as good as strawberry money.
We shipped 17i.000 woith of sheep.
How many beard about this, not to
say anything about our horses aud
cattle which run into the thousands?
Then we have the advantage of a
double shot, the same as Hood River.
Wnue Hood Kiver is marketing her
big apple orop this fall we will lie sell
ing a wheat crop that will make the
fruit value insignificant ludeed.
How will Hood Kiver s bank depos
its if the town is larger, compare with
Heppner. Heppner has two strong
banks. The last sworn statement of
the First National showed deposits of
We need a color bearer. We ought
to be proud of our town. This would

below the average, my judgement is
that the raisers will receive more
money than for a number of years,
on account of the high prices that

top prices was made that is apt to be

"How much more will the f aimers
get for tbeir wheat this year because

there be boats on the river to carry
the wheat to tide water? Wheat should
be worth five cents a bushel more but
will it?" Immediate results cannot
be expected but the time for carrying

reduction in freight rates should be
demanded or means taken to secure
lower rates through the water way.
