"Let us get together" Prof. E. G.
Bailey Cot Elgin 'reflected the spirit
of all'secons of the county In work
ing harmony, setting forth that each
section had Interest that " when de
veloped would make one of the grand
commonwealths that provide homes
and opportunities for thousands and
thousands. ' This sentiment was
echoed from every seat

say when he' talks ' and last " night

UeB In La Grande was clothed In iio
He cited the fact that on Thursday
during the last fair he overheard,1
remark while the suck review was
taking place that there were 20
horses i In that parade worth from
160,000 to S70.000. Mr. Bragg re
plied, "Did yon notice that other pa
rade wherein there were, 2150 ani
mals and that each and every one
were worth fl,t)00,000?'
He referred to the memorable pa
rade ot the. school children of the
county. ' '
He hen reviewed the change of
sentiment In the commission appoint
ed by the Commercial Club to InveS'
tlgate and report, which they did 'af
ter calm consideration. , He cited
that he was present when the chair
man. who at the beglnlng firmly be
lieved that our chools were suffl
clent but he dictated the report : re
garding the startling finding by this
representative board. He was pres
ent when another member dictated
the clause asking for a bond Issue
to the extent of $75,000, whereas,
prior to this Investigation, this mem
ber firmly believed that $15,000 or
at the most $25,000 would be sum
clent. If every taxpayer would make
a Blmllar Investigation there would
be no doubt as to . the result of the
vote on the 26th of this month. Mr.
Bragg Bnowea that the tax to pro
vide for this improvement would on
ly amount to 80 cents on the $1000
for the next ten years. His remarks
showed clearl the sentiment of the
"The Lawyer" Happily for the
Judge his position made It possible
for him to tell many secrets regard
ing the professfon. How they helped
good men out of trouble, bad men
also. He took the humorous side of
the Bubject and kept one and all in
merriment . He lft his subject on
the close and branched off on the
workings of the true booster and
concluded with the ' recitation of a
poem written by Strickland Glllilan,
the well known author, brother of
Dr. J. D. Glllilan of this city.
TUSH DOST KNOCK."
By Strickland W. Glllilan..
Upon a door I saw a sign;
cried,' "A Motto" and it's mine
A wiser thing I never saw-
No Median or Persian law
Should be more rigidly enforced
Than this, from verbiage divorced
It's logic firm as and rock

Of himwho wished to sit or stand
Within the unassuming door .
This weight of sermony that bore.
Twas never meant to preach or teach
But Just to place In easy reach
The ear of him who dealt In stock

Tet what a guide for life was that
Strong, philosophical and pat;
How safe a chart for yon and me
While cruising O'er life's restless

"Good Roads" This subject was
assigned to Hon. T. W. Wright, ot
Union, too could not be present and
as usual when the Club gets into a
tight place they call upon' Mr.
Pierce and jhe never disappoints.. Be
ing one ot the large taxpayers of the
county his remarks on permanent
roads received ' an appreciative au
dience. He expressed a desire for
macadam roads from La Grande to
Union, rom ta Grande to , North
Powder and to Elgin, estimating the
cost as $200,000 and showing It to he
an Investment. Ho eulogized the ef
forts of the County Court in their be
ginning for permanent roads and
pleaded for all to back them up.
Fred B. Currey
"Publicity and the Press" Thin
topic could not have been assigned
to a more competent person. Mr.
Currey was for many years in news
paper experience and his success as
publicity manager of the La Grande
Commercial Club Is known to ! all.
He Is a booster of the first water
and his remarks last night added en
thusiasm. He is working for a great
er Union county and is succeeding.
President John Collier
The New Infant" Here was ano-,
ther, topic that brough fo.(h much
comment prior to . its delivery, Mr.
Collier as president of the Commer
cial Club Is giving public matters
a great deal ot his time.' The "New
Infant" was the Chautauqua which
the Commercial Club has launched,
and the Observer will publish Mr.
Collier's paper In full as it contains
so much general Information that
the public really needs along Chau
. W.B. Sargent ,
"Real Estate" With twenty years
of experience, Mr. Sargent cited the
various stages which our land values
has underwent and while many of
our best lands are now reaching the
$80 to $100 mark yet in comparison
to other localities of the northwest,
our lands are much too cheap. Our
soil and climatic conditions are such
that fruit growing is becoming a
strong and attractive feature and as
result hundreds of acres are now
in orchard and thousands will soon
be planted. This means a solution
to a certain extent of the realiza
tion of the dream of the past, a cut
ting up of our large farms,
v W. J. Chnrefe
"The Union County Exposition"
Among the many achievements and
victories as a result of the activities
of the Commercial Club was the suc
cessful launching of the Union Coun
ty Exposition. Mr. Church took a
very active part in the new plan
which gave such universal salsfac
Ion last year and his remarks not
only regarded the past but the pos
sibilities of the future were received
with vigorous applause. Mr. Church
along : with the present board of
managers are already laying plans
for the fair next faU and by Mr,
Church's remarks last night cer
tainly made it clearer to the many
present that they could expect great
er results.; ... " ' ';" "; ". , ,

Mere typewriter Is no phonograph;
hence to paraphrase the closing ad
dress would be sacrellglous. In moro
than ; customary . eloquence he dealt
at tome length on "Union County."
"Did Elgin die when the railroad
was extended beyond UT Pinch its
tall and see; Did Union die because
the county seat was moved? No. it
still lives;, Did La Grande die when
It went dryt No it still lives and will
continue to live along with Elgin and
Union as long as time Is." Such was
the ' beautiful' climax of bis address
and is indeed food for thought and
consideration. ' , -
