so high that the wild throws and mis

E. A. Searlc received two voles for

Wallowa and Enterprise would
probably have done even bettor for

another matter to jilve w.-t or dry
special attention.
In Enterprise justice district, C. U.
Crunipacker received i!02 and A P.
Duubar207 votes for constable. Cai

: enough to wlieout Bell's lead and win
I by seven. This year he curlii d it by
j only three, which apparently left the
