HEAVY RAINFALL, DURING
MONTH OF SEPTEMBER
Cnpl. O. Wircn, co-operative ob
server, rcnorts the rainfull for the
month of September as 8.40 inches;
days rainy and cloudy, 23; clays clear,
The rainfall for the corresponding
month last year was 2.7G inches, n
difference of 5.71 inches more this
September this year was n record
breaker for rainfall. During the last
ten years the average September
rainfnll has been 2.02 inches, and the
heaviest prior to this year was 4.21
inches. Thus it is seen that lite rain
fall this year lias been double that
of any September in ten years.

great many people in the United

unable to mako the trip next sum

find their entertainment at home.
Several foreign countries are ask

Haberly Discusses Measures
To the Editor of the Recorder: I
had hoped some one else would avail
themselves of your generous offer of
space to discuss some of the amend
ments nd measures to bo voted on at
the election Nov. 3rd. However, as
no one else hns accepted your offer,
by your kind permission I will give
briefly my reasons for supporting or
opposing tho measures I discuss, tak
ing a few at a time:
Requiring Voters to be Citizens of the
Uuted States. ,
While this requirement is rather
stringent, foreigners cannot intelli
gently vote on measures and consti
tutional amendments until they have
become fully conversant with our sys
tem of government, nnd arc fully
weaned from their foreign viewpoint
Shall we Have a Lieutenant Governor?
Because thee xpenso is not ns much
as the cost of the senate wasting time
ove the election of a president. Poli
tics is eliminated and a succession in
caso of disability s provded in the gov
ernorship. No' man could be both
Secretary of State and Governor, as
in the case of the late Mr. Benson, if
this nmendment carries.
Boundaries of Cities and Counties
This amendment not important ex
cept to Portland.. Probably should bo
answered in the affirmative.
Allowing the State to Incur Indebted
ness in Excess of $50,000 for CVrain
Projects and Purposes.
The title is deceptive and this is
only an opening wedge to increase
tho state indebtedness for all sorts of
political and scctionnl schemes, un
der tho plea for better roads, irriga
tion and yower plant development.
Equal nnd Uniform Taxation.
Answer No, on all tax amend
ments. . They arb conflicting, immature nnd
not carefully worked out by compe
tent tax experts.
ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY
PUTTING IN NEW CONDUITS
The Randon Power Co. is very busy
these days arranging the electric
lighting system to comply witli tho
improvement along First Street.
The conduits for tho wires for the
cluster lights have nrrived nnd are
being installed, nlso a number of now
poles are being put in on the outer
edge of the new twelvo foot sidewalk.
MAIL SCHEDULE CHANGED
ON OCTOBER FIRST
The time for tho arrival and de
parture of mail changed to tho win
ter schedule yesterday, and tho mall
now arrives at 12:55 p. m. Tho Coos
Ray mail arrives at noon on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday, nnd at 0 p.

day. The down cosat mail arrives at
0 p. in. nnd leaves at 7 a. m.
C. A. SMITH PULP MILL
The pulp mill at tho C. A. Smith
plant Mnrtcd this morning on the reg
ular run after a week of preparatory
work. Ily tomorrow the plunt will be
drying pulp. About forty men uro

H)i IC JBJtMJflpoj Uy J la t Lor.
Southern and Eastern Oregon Nor
Answer Yes for-both.
-We cannot spend too much to pre
pare good teachers for our schools.
The tax added will not cost an rdi
nary taxpayer over C to 15 cent3 per
year. The three normals, one in the
southern, one n the central and one
in the eastern part of the tsatc are
well .located and badly needed.
Permitting Incorporated Towns To
Surrender Charter by vote of Citizens
Let the people govern themselves
in such matters. Now a city cannot
do so if it desires to give up ts char
ter and merge itself with a larger
city.- This bill affects somo suburbs
of Portland at the present time.
Increasing Pay of Legislators to $5.00
The state should not ask its law
makers to servo hpr for less thnn liv
ing expenses. Members of the legis
lature cannot slop at a $1.50 a day
house nnd maintain their selT respect.
They get only $3.00 a day now and
mileage. They really peml more
than $3.00 per day tor hotel and oth
er necessary expenses, so thac they
aro really out of pocket in serving the
state. It is not only unfair to them,
but,it puts temptation in their way,
whlc it practically excludes a poor
manfrom seeking the position as he
cannot afford it.
Roth Eight Hour a Day Laws
They aro too drastic and far-reaching.
If they applied only to mills,
factories, logging camps, business
houses and pubic woks they would
merit support. But they upply uni
versally, hence they would destroy
farm, dairy and domestic industries
Lnnd arrangements, since it would be
impossible to carry these on under
the proposed law. Besides they arc
This is enough for one installment.
COMMENCE WORK ON

up the rubbish and will start the

The recent rains In tho Willamette
Valley and Eastern Orogon woro very
detrimental to tho hop crops in that
section. Mr. J. T. Jamos of this city
who has a ranch in tho valloty, has
cinitc a large hop yard and during tho
early season his hops gavo promise
of a good yield, anil would liavo net
ted about 2,100 boxes, but tho rain
damaged them to such an extent that
he had only about 000 boxes left, or.
about one-fourth of tho crop.

BEAUTIFY YOUR LAWN
AND MAKE RETTER BANDON
A number of lawns in Randon are
being platted and seeded this fall and
this reminds us that tho fall of the
year is just the time to mako a beau
tiful lawn n Randon and it is to be
hoped that many more of our citizens
will get the spirit and .start a new
lawn this fall. Nothing adds to tho
beauty of n town so much as well
kepi lawns and homes. Hundreds of
people aro passing through Randon
every year looking for a location and
if our city wns covered with beautiful
lawi; and cozy homes it would make
a wonderful impression on the trav
elers mid many more of tiiem might
lie induced to cast their lots with us.
Loti; make Bandon a city of homes
first and the other good things will
como in their regular turn.
Dredge Will Leave Coos Ray.

which has beenlat work on Coos Bay
