to the- casual observer the roost

JOHN ANTHONY ROAD STILL
HEDGED BY CONTENDING .'
The most important matters up
before the" county court this week,
at least so far asm any of the ranch
ers are concerned, were those per
taining to the several new roadways
that have been projected. Among
these the O. F. Mays road at Los
tine was ordered opened. The E.
H. TuWey road near Wallowa was
ordered opened. The G. F. Lindley
road at Flora was ordered opened.
John Anthony Road.
The John Anthony road Is still in
the thoes of its struggle. The gist
of the mater is that the ranchers
wish the road openedl while the Palm
er Lumber company make the claim
that opening the road will injure
their lumber property to the ex
tent of some $5,000. Up for hear
ing before the county court, the
lumber' comapny's interests' ware
represented' by Attorney Jrio. S.
Hodgln of La Grande and' the. ranch
ers' . Interests were maintained by
Attorney D. W. Sheahan of this
city. The viewers' report was ac
cepted and the final order relating
to the road was continued.
The John McDonald road near
Wallowa was also heard. The view
ers ' report was accepted and the
final order continued.

tional liberty that everhas been de
livered in the county The Judge's

n q n a n n a a a
t j E3
. ;. . . , .... , '
at Troy. Mr. and Mrs. Rusk reside
at Joseph.. At Troy Mr. Rusk was
orator of the day, and although
Troy had many excellent features in
her celebration, Mr. Rusk's address ,
was the star number of the day's
events. Everybody in attendance
was pleased with the masterly
handling of the theme, with the
hitting of the deaila from new angles,
and with the general well rounded ef
fort. Practically the whole north
residence of the county attended
at Troy, and. all expresesdl deep sat
isfaction over the address.
Mayor J. A. Burleigh of Enterprise

ers of every one who heard him. .
Mayor Burleigh Is a forceful and
exceedingly! pleasant speaker, always

ence while he Instructs It. Mayor

Two Games at
Ralr Irvtieirfer! Wlh One Game
Ent,qrprlsa Wlna the Oth-
er Handi Dowa
Two games of bail, one last Mon
day and one lastWednesday, were
played between the Enterprise and
Joseph league teams, at Joseph. Mon
day's game was stopped by 'rain in
the fifth inning, when the score
stood 3 to 2 in Joseph's favor. The
end of thegame, of course, would
have found the score tunned about,
and with ease, as was verified by
the second game, played Wednesday.
In Wednesday's game the Enter
prise team arrived there In ah auto,
and although it was late when the
game was called, the Enterprise
team came forth victors to the ex
tent of 15 to 2. The score- merely
prophesies what the score' would
have been in Monday's game, had It
been playeti to the finish. But, of
course, Joseph was not responsible
for the rain, while she was . strictly
responsible for the fifth inning score
of 3 to 2 In her favor and we can
all be happy over lit.
Sunday the Enterprise team meets
La Grande at La Grande. That we
will win the game, every Enterprise
fan bellevs. That we won't is said
to be sort of suspicioned' byi all' the
La Grande fans. Well, we'll win,
any way. ' ' ' ' ' '
RANCHERS) TAP SILVER
CREEK FOR WATER.
W, C. Murray has Just returned
from a trip' over the mountains
where he and some'of his neighbor
ing ranchers on the Slope have sur
veyed a water way from SUver
Creek, through a canyon to this
side of the range. The object will
be to tap Silver Creek and put
the water on this side for irrigating
purposes. Mr. Murray found that
the matter could readily be effected,
and work was begun, 1 as stated,

BOTH PARTICIPANTS BOUND
OVER ONE MAN A3 PROSE
The shooting scrape between Hen-;
y Aldrlch and Jesse Halley, July 3,
at tne lake, .resulted In a prelimin
ary hearing Wednesday, after: which
Henry Aldrich was bound pvef' iU
the sum of 1 1200 to await) the action
of the grand Jury, and Jesse Halley
was placed under 9500 bonds as a
prosecuting witness'.' ' Both nieni were
brought to Enterprise.' " ' ''
The fight Is said to have occurred
near a refreshment stand at the
head of the lake, July 3rd. It was
testified' to in the hearing that Al
drich and Halley had some words
whereupon Halley la alleged to have
atruck Aldrlch across the' head with
a lemon squeezer. Aldrlch is alleged
to have secured a pistol and fined,
wounding Halley la theright shoulder.
Both men are virtually strangers
In Wallowa county, probably hav
ing been attracted here by the cele-
brat Ion at the" head of the lake.
Prosecuting Attorney T. M. Dill ap
peared tor the state in the prelim
inary hearing, before Judge Smith,
and Attorney Daniel Boyd for ' the
defendant, Aldrich. ' In that Judge
Knowles has sent word that the 'c lis
cult court will convene next Tues
day, it is probable that the hearing
will be had practically at once.
BURNED OVER TIMBER
MAY BE MADE USEFUL.
Portland, July 5 The outcome of
an experiment to be tried with burn
ed over timber in Coos County by
the Santa Fe railroad will be watched
with interest throughout the Pacific
Northwest If succesful,. It will
mean that large areas of forest, form
erly considered! useless, will become
valuable for the burned-over timber
Vet remaining. The Santa Fe has
contracted for 1200 cedar piling
from such a tract in Coos county,
if the charred piling proves a success
much more of the same material will
be bought by the Santa Fe and a
wide market will be found for this
now apparently worthless timber.
