JUDGE ELLIS U--SI10I MAY ENTER RACE EOR NEW CONGRESSIONAL POST Judge William R. Ellis of this city, tor many years a member of the house of representatives from Oregon and who was defeated for re-election by A. W.

ADJOINS ROUNDUP PARK Everything Is Apparently Agreed Up on Except Matter of Who la to Make Move structure of Concrete Blocks Considered. It now looks probable that a per manent fair building will be con structed on the plot of land just east of Round-Up Park, following a meet ing of, members of the Umatilla-Morrow county fair board last evening with Pendleton citizens. If the city will purchase the block owned by Miss Ida Boyd and Miss Sybil Clop ton, the concensus of opinion last night was that a building should be erected on it and Councilman John Dyer made it plain that the council would probably make the purchase If given assurance that the building would be put up. So it now seems that action by either body Is interde pendent. President Hurd was not able to come up from Stanfield yesterday on account of illne-s and Secretary Bick ers presided over the meeting, which was hel 1 in the city hall. A number of other fair workers as well as pat riotic citizens were present and joined In the discussion. It was the unanimous .sentiment that the 'time has arrived when the association should put up a substan tial and permanent structure instead of paying out a large sum each year for preparing the present pavilion. When the site adjoining Round-Up Park was suggested. It met an enthu siastic reception for the reason that the fair wmld be greatly benefited from the standpoint of attendance through Its contiguity to the frontier show. Land Is For Sale. The ladies who own the land have already offered it for sale to the city for park purposes and the council has been considering the offer for the past few weeks, ; Some opposition was raised but Councilman Dyer who was present at the meeting and who has been one of the opponents to the pur chase, declared his be'.lef that the city Would readily buy the ' property If given assurance that a fair building would be constructed upon it. . The land being outside the fire lim-. its, It would bo possible for tho as soclat'on to put up a frame building, but there Is-a strong sentiment in fa vor of cement blocks. In connection with the proposal to put up a building near Round-Up Park it was pointed out that with the best athletic stadium in the inland empire already nnd with the completion of a huge auditorium adjoining. Pendle ton would soon become known as the amusement center of this section of the west. AMERICAN SCHOONER AND ALL ON BOARD LOST Aberdeen, Scotland, Jan. 17. (Bul letin) A three master steam schoon er, believed to have been flying the American flag, foundered off the coast here today and all on board were lost. All attempts to reach tho vessel, tho name of which could not bo ascertained, prove'd futile. 'the race for the republican nomina tion. In local political circles thero is a belief that Sinnott will get into the campaign and those who hold this view point to the fact that at present there are no congressional candidates west of Pendleton. , Thrco Candidates Now. As matters now stand in tho second district, by which title the newly cre ated eastern Oregon district will bo known, the avowed candidates are John P. (Jerry) Rusk of La Grande, S. Fred Wilson of Athena, and Georga C. Cochran of La Grande. Walter Ptereo May Run. With the prospects of a lively raca and possibly a serious split in the re publican ranks more or less Interest is being taken In the possible demo cratic candidate for congress. Will M. Peterson, local lawyer who somo months ago was prominently mention ed in this connection, has decided not to get Into the game. At present the name of Walter M. Pierce, former joint senator from Umatilla and Un ion counties and the owner of Hot Lake sanitarium. Is most frequently mentioned by those who discuss the congressional race from a democratic standpoint.
