TWENTY-FIFTH YEAR, NO. 49.
ENTERPRISE, OREGON, THURSDAY, JULY 29. 1909.-
COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER
ENTERPRISE WINS FREIGHT
RATE BEFORE COMMISSION
0. R. N. ORDERED TO PUT CON
TINUOUS DISTANCE TARIFF
INTO EFFECT HERE.
BIG SAVING TO PEOPLE
Substantial Reduction of Freight
Rates on All Goods Shipped
Into Wallowa
County.
Freight rates on the Wallowa
county branch have been very materi
ally reduced to all points from Palmer
Junction to Joseph, by an order or
the state rallroai commission as the
result of the complaint filed by the
Enterprise Commercial club. A copy
of the order has been received by
A. C, Miller, pre d lent of the club.
The matter came on for final de
nrminatlon bv the commission on
July 16. and the order was entered
on July 23, and the new rate will go
Into effect 20 days after the railroad
company has been served with a
notice, or probably about August 12.
The order requires the O. R. & N.
railway to apply continuous distance
rates to shipments to or from Its
stations from Farmer Junction to
Joseph, inclusive. The commission
ilnds that the proportional rates now
in force are unjust and unreason
able and unjustly discriminating In
Application. The new ruling is limit
ed, however, to commodities that
take class rate).
The commission finds that the pro
portional rates for transportation of
wool, complained of, are used almost
entirely as a basis for the computa
tion of through interstate rates and
the commislon therefore expresses no
opinion as to the reasonableness or

unreasonableness of the proportional
rates on wool.
The commission declines to inter
fere at this time with the proportional
rates on livestock, because the same
have not been given a thorough test
und are largely used as a basis for
the computation of through interstate
rales. The commission will make no
finding on the reasonableness or un
reasonableness of the proportional
rates on live stock for state ship
ment until the same have been
given more extended practical test.
The relief granted by the commis
sion applies to practically all freight
shipments into this county, and the
average reduction will be 12 per cent
or mora. .
The new rates will almost wipe out
the difference on shipments to Wal
Iowa and Enterprise from jobbing
centers, but there will be a reduc
tion In the pre3ent rates to Wallowa
as well as to all the towns. The
total saving to the people of this
county will amojnt to thousands of
dollars yearly.
The Enterprise Commercial club
brought, the compla'nt alone, and at
the hearing held by the state commis
sion in this city on June 7, bore the
burden of the conflict alone, repre
sentatives of the other towns coming
in the O. R. & N. special train as
witnesses for the company.

"It's rather an up-hill job for a stran
ger in a strange land to get out an
Interesting newspaper," says S. P.
Sliutt, the new editor of the Joseph
Herald in his first number. That first
number, fcpwever, proves him a strong
uphill puller. , , .

Northwestern To Coast Rumor Given
New Life By Idaho
Incorporation.
From ' the Clarkston Republic.
The Republic has - been a little
slow to give publicity to all the rail
road rumors that have been floating
around lately, but It seems evident
that the situation is rapidly nearing
a point where the p.ans of the rail
roads will be made public and every
thing indicate that the Northern
Pacific will build from Missoula to
ILewiston-Clarkston and down the
south bank of the Snake river to
Riparia; that the Harrlman interests
will build from Huntington here as
soon as poislble and from here to
Jtfiqsqula; that the North Coast road
from Seattle to Pasco and tl)e Pitts
burg and Gdlroore road, which Js now
building In southeastern Idaho and
which a few days ago filed articles
of incorporation in Boise locating Its
line through Asotin county to Pasco,
are the links that will take the North
western to the coast; and that the
.Graves electric line will soon an
mounee Its intent) m of building to
IClarkston. Of course the LewliHqn
(papers set forth Vi&t the roads are
all going on that side of the river
Ibut to the unprejudiced mind Clarks
ton will derive as much benefit from
the railroad deejjpment as or

ONE GAME LOST
ENTERPRISE TEAM ENDS SEASON
. BY SPLITTING EVEN ON
DOUBLE-HEADER.
With the game nicely sewed up in
the ninth Inning, Enterprise players
ripped the seams end allowed the
Wallowa team to snatch a victory
they had given up all hope of secur
ing. The score was 4 to 1 in favor
of Enterprise and as Bllyeu had the
enemy at his mercy, striking out nine
f them in eight innings and allow
ing but six measly hits, it seemed til
over but the shouting. But things
Are no', always what they seemeth
in base!:all and the ninth inning is
a part of the game.
Tulley got to second on Pace's
muff of Hug's perfect throw and
went to third on Marvin's scratch
single, and came home on a short
passer ball and W. Pldcock's momen
tary trance. Hayes was out on a fly
to center, but Hughes and Johnson
were given life by errors of Judg
ment in handling their easy hits,
Marvin scoring. Hughes was nailed
at third by a fine play by Moody,
but a rapid fusllade of singles by
Schllke, Holmes and Maxwell and a
two bagger by Waelty brought In
four scores. Tulley ending the agony
with a grounder to second. During
the entire melee of errors and hits
the bOO spectators made a noise like
unto a boiler shop, and an Incipient
fight between two or more excited
partisans delayed play several min
utes. Result of thU nightmare was
six scores for Wallowa, not one of
which was earned. These added to
the one garnered in the fifth on a
hit and error gave a total of seven.
Enterprise had hit Hayes harder
than usual and bad ajuasaed a total
qf fgur mainly on good batting. The
hom$ team made a game effort to
come back In the ninth, Savage and
Hug dying on third and second when
succeeding batters failed. to hit safe.
