At an enthusiastic meeting of the stockholders of the Roundup, held at the Commercial association rooms last evening the annual election of officers occurred and considerable discussion was made of next year’s exhibition. At the election of officers, J.R. Raley was again made president of the corporation and most of the old officers and directors were retained. The principal subject of discussion last night was that of larger grounds for next year. It will be necessary for the association to secure enlarged grounds and a slightly larger track. Last night some stockholders favored using the city’s tract above the water works in the east end of town. Other favored using the Matlock tract but enlarging the same. The matter was finally referred to a committee, which will investigate both propositions and submit a recommendation to the stockholders.

Jack Stangier made it official Tuesday by resigning from the City Council. Stangier last week was found to be ineligible to serve on the council, of which he had been a member many years, because his residence lies outside the city limits. A small portion of the southerly living room does lie south of the city boundary, but the law is such that his residence does not qualify as being inside the city. Stangier followed his resignation with an application to annex his property to the city. This is expected to be carried out soon.

The town that bears their name has shrunk to a grain elevator and a vacant school house, but the Holdmans are still farming north of Pendleton along Highway 37. This year the family received a century farm award from the State Historical Society. What started as a 155-acre sheep ranch in 1882 is now a 5,200-acre wheat and cattle ranch. Today Ben Holdman is running the farm started by his grandfather, Frank, and three great-uncles — Ora, Wade and William.
