PEOPLE FROM ENTIRE COUNTRY
REGISTER FOR BIG GOV
Fully 50 Wallowa county residents
will be registered for the big land
drawing contest in the opening of
the Flathead, Cosur d'Alene and Spo
kane Indian reservation. The unmber
stated is doubtless way under the
total from this county as some have
registered and said nothing about It.
There is a tremenduous rush at
Spokane, Coeur dlAlene, Missoula
and Kalispel, where the registering
Is done. The Flathead reservation
U the largest tract of land and is
said to be the best. The Indians of
course have been given the cholceit
land, and only about one in 40 who
register will get anything at all,
Marlon Harris and Elmer Kooch
returned last weak from registering
for all three openings, at Spokane,
Coeur d'Alene and Missoula. They
are not overly enthusiastic about the
land, or at lea3t that part of it they
saw, but say the rush is great. Mis
soula, Mont., was the surprise town,
they finding it a nicely built-up city
of 20,000 people. It is 16 miles
south of the Flathead reservation.

NEW ROAO LEADS
1 SHORT CUT BETWEEN ALDER
SLOPE AND PRAIRIE CREEK
The sugar beet loading station for
Prairie Creek and the upper valley
will be two miles south of Enterprise,
several public spirited landowners
donating right of way and money so
that a . county road will be' put
through from the Litch place east
two miles to the road running along
by B. T. Long's. This will give ac
cess to the loading switch at or near
where this new road crosses the rail
road track, from both Alder Slope
and Prilrle Creek.
, Several ot the landowners affected
were in town Saturday getting con
sents and cash to help pay the ex
pense, and consulting the county
(court. It wb the intention of the
! sugar company to put Ih the switch
just a mile south of town on the Mc

J cation, with the new road running to
it, will be far more convenient to
Prairie Creek and upper valley lands.
The new road will serve an ad
mirable purpose aside from leading
to the sidetrack, as it will give a
straight route between Prairie Creek
and Alder Slope, saving a couple of
miles at least on trip's between those
