Such wui the reversal of opinion at
tar the result of the election last
Thursday became known that there
wan an urgent request by taxpayers
that certain BtatemenU be made
through the local papers and that re
newed efforts be made to secure addi
tional ground (or the library site
Therefore the following facts are stat
ed as plainly as possible:
The question at issue Is not that of
library or no library. The Carnegl
Commission gift has been practically
accepted awaiting only the decision
of the site.
The question has nothing to do with
the running of the library. The ex
penses will be practically the same
wherever the building may be placed
A plot of ground Is now available,
40x200 feet and this the county com
mlsBloners have agreed to accept if no
more is secured. Hut this was agreed
to only after a convincing argument
by Miss Marvin, the state librarian,
that It would be possible to build a
library and a good one on such a piece
of ground, but it was not deemed ad
visable to do so unless It meant the
loss of the building.
A long, narrow and steep strip of
land on which to erect a fine, artistic
building would prove a most difficult
proposition, hampering extremely the
design for beauty and usefulness. The
basement plan for public auditorium
and club rooms would suffer largely
No one can tell how soon business
buildings might be built on the cor
ners, leaving the library squeezed in
Do you want a $17,500 building plac-
ed on such a site?
Have you considered the advantage
of having a park with fine trees, with
benches and a band stand for public
Do you realize how such a building
as is planned, amid such surroundings
would impress strangers?
Our country friends have a right
to ask that the county library be as
convenient as possible both inside and
out for rest and comfort.
The Carnegie Commission cannot
be kept waiting.
The present park site will be for
feited if not used before October, 1913.
A new building should be under
cover by September 15.
The question now Is whether, as a
business proposition, the city can af
ford to lose the opportunity of secur
ing a certain number of feet of the
adjoining property so that the library
building may be placed to the best
advantage and be surrounded by at
least a small park. The financial
stress in city and valley has been con
sidered, yet this case seems sufficient
ly urgent to ask every citizen to con
sider it carefully and to endorse any
plan which seems reasonable to se
cure at least a part of the tract offer
Mrs. L. C. Baldwin
Friends of Mrs. L. C. Baldwin were
shocked to learn of her sudden death
on Wednesday, April 9, at Long Beach,
Cal. She had been In poor health for
some time and went to a hospital
there last November In hopes of .re
ceiving benefit. Neither her friends
nor family here suspected that her
Condition was serious and news of
her death therefore came most unex
pectedly. The remains were brought
lie re and the funeral was held Monday
afternoon at lmmanuel Church on the
Heights, Hev. J. It. llargreaves offlc
tlng. Mrs. Baldwin was born at The Dal
les 26 years ago. She lived there un
til her marriage, which occurred 10
years ago next June. Since that time
she has lived in Hood River. Besides
her husband, she is survived by her
mother, Mrs. Ellen Koontz, little
daughter, Marion, one sister, Mabel,
and three brothers, Ilea, Frank and
Several local Elks may become can
didates for the Elks baseball team
which It was decided to organize at a
meeting of the local lodge at The
Dalles the lust of the week. An at
tempt to form a team InBt year failed
to materialize on account of the lack
of material. This year, however, new
material Is available and the organi
zation was perfected last week by the
election of officers. F. M. Phillips
was chosen manager and J. A. Mcln
erny will pilot the team as captain.
Suits will be purchased and practice
will begin at once. The suits will be
purple and white, the Elks' colors, and
the players will make a neat appear
ance when they come out for the first
time, which will probably be played
with the Fortland Elks.
A soft answer may not turn away
wrath, but It saves a lot of useless
Special interest baa been aroused
here in the attempt to refer to the
people the appropriations for the two
state universities. Inasmuch as a num
ber here are working In behalf of the
movement and want to consolidate
the two universities If possible.
decided opposition has been aroused
to this attempt to defeat the appropri
ations and a state-wide fight against
it will be made. Those who want to
see the appropriations kept Intact will
meet In Portland at the Chamber of
Commerce next Saturday at 2 p. m
Invitations have been Issued to prac
ti ally all of the leading organization
of the sia,te to participate in the
move, not only to fight the referend
urn, but eventually to establish a con
strucilve plan for an economical ad
ministration of the affairs of the high
er educational Institutions.
In a formal statement Colonel Hofer
of Salem outlines the plan In part as
"There is universal sentiment
against holding a special election this
fall to refer Hie university appropria
tions for the new buildings. The
business men of the state are not only
opposed to the expense of the special
election, which, with the woman vote,
would cost from 175,000 to $100,000.
but are opposed to holding up the ap
propriation of a sum like $175,000 that
is badly needed for buildings at the
Sfate University, accordng to the tes
timony of every person who has ever
bee if over the grounds and equipment
at Eugene.
'The proposition to hold up this ap
propriation on the ground that there
is a demand for consolidation of the
University with the Agricultural Col
lege is too far fetched for the practi
cal man of affairs to consider serious
ly. In the first place there is no cer
tainty if the special election were
held that the people would sustain the
referendum, and then there is still
ess certainty than the people would
vote to consolidate the two institu
Artesian water has been struck In

Farmers in the Molalla-Canby dis-

Although the crop of cereals in
Wasco and Sherman counties this
year will not surpass the crop of 1912,
owing to the fact that the acreage
is less because of the summer fallow
ing, reports received by the Business
Men's Association indicate a yield per
acre that will break all records for
that sectloiv The fruitgrowers are
also looking forward to a harvest of
record-breaking crops of cherries,
peaches, pears, apple prunes, grapes
and other fruits. Several hundred ac
res of cherries will come into bear
ing this year.
