DECEMBER 26 Promise of New Year. The E M & M. company in its New Year announcement in thin paper, strikes the key note for E.iterptise and all Wallowa county while the last 12 months have been the most prosperous in the history of the comity, the brightness of 1907 is excee ied by the splendid promise of 1908. The development of the great resources of Wallowa county has scarcely begun. The timber, mines, agriculture and horticulture riches hardly touched. With transportation facilities and a fair price for products, th6 advancement of Wallowa will exceed the most darin? dream of its most enthusiastic citizen. . So with miny reasons for a Merry Christmas the citizens of this favored county have many more for a Happy and Prosperous New Year. The News Record has good reasons of its own in joinii.' the hopeful chorus, ami will do its level bet to brin about the conditions that will make for the upbuilding of this county. Mer'y Chiiitirof and Happy New Year to all. 1 Nothing hut word of praise are heard for the newly appointed register of the La Grande land oflioe, F. C. Rratnwell. He has been deputy county clerk of Union county for three years, and is said to he the most efficient and at the same time the most popular deputy ever in that office. Mr. Davis1 many friends are naturally disappointed that he failed to secure the plum again, but so far have said nothing derogatory of his successor. Speaker Joe Cannon must think Congressman Ellis is a prohibi tionist. He placed Eastern Oregon's representative on two water com mittees naval and irrigaiion. The Chieftain issued a special Christmas edition last week, with a handsomo colored cover. SPECIAL SESSION Continued from first pape O. M.

To the People of Wallowa County, Greeting: The year 1907 has been, everything considered, the most prosper- year in the history" of this great Empire-County. The E. M. C& M. Company has shared in this general prosperity and has done the larg est business, both in mill and store, of any twelve months in the twenty years that we have done business in Enterprise. The company is grateful for the generous patronage accorded it, especially as it proves we have what we have endeavored to merit the confidence of the people. Even brighter than the achievements of 1907 is the splendid promise of 1908. The pania is over and while the delay in the comple tion of the railroad and loss on stock has been a disappointment, the great resources of this county are unhurt. In a few months the "holi days" will be forgotten, and with work resumed on the railroad and good prices for products Wallowa county will enter on a new era. Our store and mill will be found not only abreast but as in the past a little ahead of that progress. And so, thankful for your friendship in 1907, and wishing one and aU a Merry" Christmas and a Prosperous and Happy New Year, We are Yours to Command, E. ML M Company i J.
