Second Annual Convention to
Be Held August 14.
Special Train Will Carry Large Dele
cation of Portland Lodgemen
to State Meeting.
Elks from every part of Oregon are
making final plans for delegatiops to
the second annual convention of the
Oregon State Elks association at
Klamath Falls, August 14, 15. and 16.
Between 500 and 1000 Elks from Port
land are expected to make the journey
to the southeastern part of the state
and each lodge is sending a large quota
of delegates and members.
In Klamath Falls the committee of
lodgemen have all plans completed for
three days of unrestricted joy, inter
fcpersed with serious business sessions
by the members of the state association
of Elks.
Parade to Be Given.
One of the features of the last day
of the convention will be a street
parade in which every lodge of Oregon
and several lodges of California will
participate. Appropriate prizes will be
offered, one for the largest represen
tation in line from one lodge, another
for the most unique showing, and
others for similar showings.
Chief among the stunts being ar
ranged is the big barbecue which is to
he held at Pelican Bay Lodge on the
shores of the upper Klamath lake on
the afternoon and evening of August
15. This unique event is to be staged
at the mountain home of the famous
railroad magnate, the late E. H. Har
riman, who spent much of his spare
time during the last years of his life
in recreation there.
A large natural amphitheater has been
discovered, which is being fitted up for
the accommodation of the guests, with
many of the rustic features 6 till un
touched and where, after the big feed,
each visiting lodge is to provide some
unique stunt as a surprise to the others.
One of the live wire Elks of Klamath
Falls, PE. D. Mortenson, president of the
Pelican Bay Lumber company, has just
returned from the Bohemian club "hi
jinks" in San Francisco and from this
spurce has worked up a number of -features
which promise to be especially at
tractive. Both boats and automobiles
will be ready to carry the visitors from
Klamath Falls to the lodge, which is
about 30 miles. The Klamath Falls
committee is keeping secret on some
of the plans which will be staged in the
nature of surprises.
Special Rate Granted.
Although many of the Elks from
very section of Oregon will journey to
Klamath Falls in automobiles, a large
number will also go in a special de
luxe train operated by Portland lodge.
This train will leave Portland at 11
o'clock A. M. August 13, arriving in
Klamath Falls early on the opening day
of the convention.
Arrangements have been made by the
transportation committee of Portland
lodge for a special rate of $35 for the
round trip from Portland to Klamath
Falls, including sleeping accommoda
tions for five days, and war tax. Corre
spondingly low rate was obtained on
the certificate plan, the delegates and
members paying the full fare to Klam
ath Falls and returning on a third f are. j
Reservations for the special train can
be made by communicating with Secre-I

Chchalis and Centralia Clubs Co
operate to Obtain Routing.
CHEHALI& AVash.. July 2S. (Spe
cial.) A joint committee composed of
members of the Chehalis Citizens club,
the Centralia Commercial club and the
Onalaska. club, met here yesterday to
lay plans to further the proposal to
obtain the routing of the National Park
highway from the Pacific highway, via
the south fork of the Newaukum river,
to Onalaska. thence via Mill creek to
Salkum, where it would connect with
the present route.
Kiver grades, an abundance of road
material along the route, probable
shorter distance, more people to be
served and cutting out of two or four
bad hills are urged as reasons for the
change. The committees that met here
named a sub-committee to work with
other organizations to secure the con
struction of the permanent highway.
Armstrong Manufacturing Company
Holds Outing.
The Armstrong Manufacturing com

50 employes and their friends with an
old-fashioned picnic and outing on the
Willamette river July 19. The party
chartered the launch 'Dix. and Magoon's
landing. just below Oregon City, was
chosen as the site for the day's fun.
Swimming was enjoyed both in the
morning and evening, and the appetites
of the pleasure seekers were satisfied
by a basket picnic lunch at noon and
too cream and lighter refreshments in
the evening.
The afternoon was spent in an ath
letic meet, held in the park, in which
everyone joined in the contests.
We desire to sincerely thank our

In the days when news came only
when steamers or overland caravans
reached the coast, when It was months
before important events occurring in
the east became known to the west, a
group of men interested in the future
of Oregon City, then the seat of govern
ment for the provisional government of
Oregon, determined that a press would
greatly promote their interests.
The germ of thought was born in
1844 and on February 5, 1846, the Ore
gon Spectator made its initial bow to
the public. In so doing it gained the
lasting prestige of being the first news

Early next month when the delegates
of the National Editorial association
visit Portland they will be taken to
Oregon City to witness the unveiling of
a monument in tribute to the Oregon
Spectator and the men who were as
sociated with it during its compara
tively short career. The unveiling of
this monument, placed on the site of
the first newspaper office in the great
western country, will be one of the
noteworthy features of the national
gathering of the country's newspaper
folk in the Pacific northwest.
George Hlmea Collects Data.
The Spectator was established
through the organization of the Oregon
printing association, the officers of
which were as follows: W. G. T' Vault,

The Spectator began its career
pledged to support no exclusive party
politics and continued the nonpartisan
policy until February 3, 1852, when for
the first time the Spectator became a
distinctively political journal, cham
pioning the cause of the Whig party.
Pioneer Is First Editor.
The first editor of the Spectator was
Colonel William G. T'Vault. a pioneer
of 1845, who at the same time was the
postmaster-general of the provisional
government. His editorial salary was
at the rate of J300 a year. - Colonel
T'Vault was a native of Kentucky, a
lawyer by profession, with some news
paper experience gained in Arkansas.
Politically he was an uncompromising
democrat of the Jeffersonian school,
but the constitution of the printing as
sociation made it necessary for him to
bury his political beliefs.
However well he may have tried to
do so, his efforts apparently were not
Proposals on Hayes Hill Work in
Josephine County Also to
Be Received.
It is possible that much of the clear-
ins and grubbing: and some grading can
be done on the Mount Hood loop this
season. Bids for the Mount Hood road
project will be opened Tuesday morn
ing at 10 o'clock in the new postoffice
building, by C. H. Purcell. At the same
time and place bids will be received for
the Hayes hill job in Josephine county.
L.ater in the season bids will be asked
for grading. 15 hs miles on the McKenzie
highway between Blue river and Bel
knap springs, the first government con
tract on the McKenzie highway having
been let two weeks ago for the 15 miles
from Sisters toward the Summit.
Two kinds of proposals will be re
ceived on the Mount Hood loop. Con
tractors can bid on the entire 37 miles,
or on 14 miles.
The entire route is from Zig Zag
around the mountain to connect at the
forest boundary with a road to Park
dale. The 14-mile section is from Zig
Zag to a point two miles beyond gov
ernment camp.
Providing the contract is awarded
Tuesday and an energetic contractor is
the successful bidder, there is stiLl
plenty of time to make a good showing
this season.
As planned, the loop will be a 16-foot
travel way. It is all easy grade, with
the exception of a short stretch which
will be 6 per cent. This grade is taken
in order to save a particularly attrac
tive scenic effect.
The McKenzie road project is 20 miles
longer than the Mount Hood road, be
ing 57 miles. Government surveyors
completed their work on the McKenzie
road last week. More than half of the
project will be under contract this year.
About 60,000 yards of excavating will
have to be done on the Hayes hill in
Josephine county, this being a section
of the Grants Pass-Crescent City road,
over which a group of government of
ficials toured a fortnight since.

post of the paper on April 2, 1846.
John Fleming, who came to Oregon
from Ohio, was the first printer of the
Spectator. On April 16. 1846, Henry A.
G. Lee assumed editorship of the Spec
tator, remaining at this post less than
four months, for -his retirement as edi
tor is noted in the Spectator of August
6, 1846.
Paper Edited hy Printer.
From this time until October 1, John
Fleming, the printer, edited the paper.
Then George L. Curry, who had Just
arrived over the plains from St. Louis,
was installed in the editor's chair. In
cidentally, records show Mr. Lee to
have been in the first party of immi
grants who entered the Oregon terri
tory over the southern route through
the famous Cow creek canyon.
During Mr. Curry's regime as editor
printers were changed, John Fleming
retiring in favor of N. W. Colwell, who
came to Oregon in 1845. Later Mr.
Fleming returned as printer, but not
until Editor Curry, had quit the edi
torship of the Spectator because of the
political censorship which existed. Mr.
Curry resigned early in 1848 and in
March of the same year established an
opposition paper, which was named the
Oregon Free Press. Publication of this
paper stopped in October, 1848, princi
pally due to the rush of people to the
gold mines in California.
On February 8. 1S48. Aaron E. Wait,
a native of . Massachusetts, became edi
tor. On September 7 of this year the
paper suspended publication because of
the departure of Printer Fleming to
the gold mines. Publication was re
sumed on October 12, with S. Bentley
as printer, and the following terse

Northwestern Meeting.
Plans for general re-organization and
expansion of the work of the Western
Forestry and Conservation association
were ratified at a meeting Friday of
a number of the trustees from the
northwestern states. The scope and
personnel of the association will be
made to cover more broadly than ever
before, both the western protective
work and the economic problems con
fronting the -entire industry.
Favorable action was taken on a co
operative plan proposed by the Oregon
Forest Fire association, under which
Colonel C. S. Chapman, manager of the
latter, will take charge of all the fire
and similar local work in the five
states. The five-state association will
furnish him assistants to develop tech
nical fire fighting methods and law en
forcement, also increased facilities for
educational work with industry and
public on protective matters.
The Western Forestry and Conser

dependently and in co-operation with
the National Lumber Manufacturers' as
sociation and other lumber and timber
organizations in working out larger in
dustrial Questions and in obtaining
recognition of western needs from
governmental agencies. E. T. Allen
will devote himself almost entire
ly to this work in the east. Much
of his earliest attention will be given
to relations between the lumber indus
try and the treasury department in
working out the new revenue laws, af

clergyman, as editor and George B.

opposite Oregon City and now known
as West Linn, became owner of the

He was succeeded by D. J. Schnebly.
who changed the Spectator from a
semi-monthly publication to a weekly.
In the following year Mr. Schnebly be
came owner of the paper and installed
C. P. Culver as associate editor. It was
in 1S52 that the paper became the
champion of the Whig cause, but a
year following the publication was sus
pended until August 19, 1853. when it
resumed publication. After this date
the paper did not receive good sup
port and grew weaker and weaker, fi
nally being sold by Mr. Schnebly to
C. L. Goodrich In 1854. who operated it
until March. 1855, when the first pa

shall restrict our consideration to a
single feature or function of the pro
phetic gift. vis. prediction, or the fore
telling of events.
For the test proposed. Joseph Smith,
commonly called "The Mormon Prophet".
shall be the subject. A few Instances
of his predictions, and the sequel to
each, will be presented.
1. In 1S23. Joseph Smith declared on
the authority of Divine revelation that,
because of the work required of him
by the Lord, his "nam aaoola be had
for arood aad evil aaBoaar all atatlona.
kladreda. aad taaran, or that It sbould
be both gooa aad evil apokea of amove;
all people." A strange avowal for a
17-year-old lad to make! And yet more
strange that it should be so abundantly
verified as present-day literature at
tests! 2. In the same year he foretold the
bringing forth of the plates on which
the Book of Mormon record was in
scribed, and with this specific aver
ment: "The kaowledare that thla record
eoatalaa will ICO to every natloa. aad
kladred. aad toaaroe, aad people, aiader
the whole heavea." This was done 1
years before the graven plates came
into his possession, and 14 years before
the Elders of the Church entered upon
missionary service in foreign lands. As
to the fulfilment, consider the fact
that since Its first publication, in 1530.
the Book of Mormon has been trans
lated Into every language of prom
inence and Into many of the yet primi
tive tongues: and that many millions
of copies have been distributed.
5. In 1S4S. while the Church was
suffering persecution in Illinois, and
when the western part of the continent
was but little known, and only as the
territory of an alien nation, Joseph
Smith prophesied "that the fraiata
woold eoatlaoe to aotfer aaarh affile
line aad would be drlvea to the Rorky
Moaatalaa", and that while many then
professing allegiance to the Church
would apostatize, and others, faithful
to their testimony, would meet the
martyr's fate, some would live "to
aaalat la aiaklac aettleaaeata aad bolld
eltieo. aad arc the Malata beeome a
aaighty people ta the aaldat of the
Rocky MoaafaiBB." The abundant ful
filment of this prediction, uttered, as
stated. In IS42. and, it may be added,
foreshadowed by an earlier prophecy In
131. is attested by the official history
of the settlement and development of
this once barren but now productive

way and another small detachment ove(

4. A specific and most remarkable!
prophecy regarding national affaire
was uttered by Joseph Smith on De
cember 25. 1532. It was eoon there
after promulgated among the members
of the Church and was preached by
the Klders, but did not appear in print
until 1851. (See Pearl of Great Price,
British edition of 1S51). The revelation
reads in part as follows: "Verily thaa
