The Walla Walla company is ready to take up the matter of building the electric railroad from that city to En-1 terprisu. In a Utter dated April 25, a lending capitalist of Walla Walla, .one of the wealthiest men iu Eastern Wash ington, sends word to a prominent citizen of Enterprise that they were "ready to take up the proposition ol electric railroad" with the people of this city. This letter is fio in the News Record office, and it will be acted upou as speedily a- such matters can be done. 1 or obvious reasons, the name of the cupitalis: is not made pub lic ai this time. Performance:. ITot Promises. Editorial The above p:iiagri,ph of news 'is evi dence of activity 011 t.l e part of Enterprise-in tho matter of u railroad ouliet to tho north. It is well known by leading citizens of every community along tho line of the pioposed route that Enterprise men have been woik- ing on this pioject for 111010 than six months. And they are not pulling alone in their work in this county as the great promi. or who edits the Wallowa S.iu will one day wake up' and tee. This wetk's issue of tho Wallowa Proniiser needs only pictures to be 11 comic supplement. In one paragraph it scoffs at the idea of a town the size of Euturprise doing anything toward building a railroad to the North Conn try, and in the next breath promi-es that Wallowa, half the size of Entoi- prise, will surely build half the road tip Whiskey creek ifFloia will build the other half. In their mad desire to hog all the offices, and. relying -onthe. word .of few iriesponsibles from other towns, at so much per. word, or a lump sum for so many signatures to their county seat petition, Wallowa engineeis of the counts 6eat scrap threw down the candidates from other sections, particu larly the north end. Now realising their blunder, the Sun is abject iu its fawning and cringing, and even iuvents a lie out of the whole cloth, that Mr. Locke was in favor of a $100,000 court house. . "The people of this city would have been glad to support a man from the north end for commissioner," says the Sun. Yes, how clad? Mr. Locke was out weeks before"- McDonald and had the united support of the North Country. But the Jonas tub insisted on trotting out the 6tronget man In their w hole community to dow n Locke and the north end. How "glad" they were! After trying to hog everything, the Sun- now fmtps and sm rls, and accuses Lostine and the North Couutry of high treason h.rausu they wouldn't 1I1J as the Wallowa bosses dictated. "This, of course is oi-couraging," as the Sun says. The Sun's frenzied promises of fair treatment will not he swallowed by Lostine and the North Country after the throw-downs at the (iriniary by Wallowa. Promises don't go. It is Enterprise performance against Jonas promises. Enterprise offers the best sits iu Wallowa county for the court bouse, and $o000 of real mony; the Jonas push promises hot air. Enterprise treated all seel Ions of the county fairly in the primary, except avowed enemies of this town. The Jonas push well, it's history, and they can't dodge the record, but my they are promising for the future. And it is the same with the railroad. Enterprise has been working along that line for half n year. Iixiu before the eounly seat n-stion pus.d tin; petition stage, nud lias created what ever teiiliiuent that now e;iL for the j nri-,. i,ve visited Walla W11II11 ihiiIImI Ists and hu'il the resources of the eounly before tliym and got them Interested. Other railroad builders have U-en In- , tereted, ami Enterprise will never let un until the road is completed. Hot for political reasons but becuuse It w ill lielp Enterprise commeri.'ially. The J people of the county know this Is a j town lljnt does things pel formance, I And the Jonas pus!. promises, hot uir, nothing doing. 0. E. & IT. Extension ITewi. W.R. Holmes, who returned Tues- day from 'a few days bm-ines trip to La Grande, snys it is the general expecta tion In th in La Grande and Elgin 'that work will be resumed soon on the Jos i'p'i extension but the'e is 110 more definite word there than we have in here. The completion of the Ripnriu-Lewif ton extension this week will release ' hree or four hundred laborers, aud it a gwoil guess they will be brought to Elgin. Two car leads of Japs came down to Elgin from La Grande on the same train .Mr. Holmes returned on. There are 70 carloads of light steel in the yards at Elgin.
