Prominent among the new clothes I am showing for men are the
attractive heather mixtures and the lively iridescents. The conserva

men there are the belted waist-seam and the high waist English types.
Quality as usual the best. Your entire satisfaction assured.

CoBT-ention Spirit Permeates City
Chosen for Gambols of Antlered
I Herd This Month.
(Special.) Eacti day sees Klamath
Falls taking on an increasing bit of
the pre-convention spirit that promises
to reach a high mark in enthusiasm
and activity in mid-August.
The smallest boy in town who is able
to talk can tell a stranger much about
the Elks' convention which is set for
August 14. 15 and 16.
E. B. "Bert" Hall, manager of the
White Pelican and Hall hotels and gen
eral chairman of the convention, is the
busiest man in town. He is living,
talking and dreaming in a purple hue.
Clarence Underwood, exalted ruler,
finds little time to spend in his drug
store. He vowed many weeks ago to
lay aside business cares if they inter
fered with 'antler" duties. Wilson S.
Wiley, attorney, recently returned from
the Atlantic City national convention,
is all agog for the big days to arrive.
Even Mayor I. R. Strubble. usually
most calm and reticent, displays ner
vousness whn you press him too closely
on city business affairs. His mind is
with the Elks.
"Accommodations how are you go
ing to house and feed all the visitors
during the three days" a fortnight ago
was the most asked question on the
streets. Today Elks and others are
assured that every visitor in town
will get a place to put his head at
night. All available space in town in
halls and buildings has been - re
quisitioned. Five hundred army cots
are assured and close to 1000 campers
will be able to find tent space in the
two large camp grounds that the city
is setting aside for convention visitors.
A huge stucco arch that will span
Main street in front of the Elks- build
ing, is under construction. Work of

On the matter of entertainment, street
dancing, band concerts, rodeo stunts,
sideshows and all the carnival features
known will be included. Special com
mittees are working among the women
of the town to assure the comfort and
entertainment of the wives and rela
tives of visiting Elks.
Harriman Lodge, the summer home
of the late E. H. Harriman, will be the
scene of the monster barbecue that is
set for Friday evening. It will be juite

lean moving films are increasing in
popularity here. Until 18 months ago
European pictures were favored by the
public which had acquired a taste for
French and Italian productions. Of
late, however, American manufacturers
have put their products to the fore in
the republic and their films are to be
found in virtually all picture houses,
in many of them displacing altogether
the European films.
Evidences that the United States
manufacturers intend to expand their
field here is the fact that within the
past -few weeks three of' the leading
companies have established offices in
Mexico City and these in turn have
started branches in Vera Cruz. Guada
lajara, San Luis Potosi and Monterey.
Representatives of these firms assert
that in a short time Mexico will receive
film releases almost simultaneously
with the United States. This will be
an innovation, for heretofore managers
have been content to receive films many
months old and of a poor quality.
Independent Cane Raisers Given Op
portunity by Owners of Large
Hawaiian Plantations.
HONOLULU, T. H., July 20. (Special.)
Making an entirely new depicture in
the history of sugar raising in Hawaii,
the C. Brewer & Co. plantations on the
island of Hawaii will in the future of
fer what amounts to profit-sharing
contracts to independent sugar-cane
The plan is that the company shall
pay the producers a certain basic rate
for their cane. Then the total manu
facturing cost shall be subtracted, leav-
ng the total net return on the crop.
From this net an additional 9 per cent
of the assessed value of the plantation
property shall be first deducted and the
remaining 91 per cent divided between
the plantation and the independent
growers, each receiving the same ratio
of the surplus as his cane bore to the
total produced.
This attitude on the part of such a
large corporation is taken as an indi
cation of the trend of the sugar busi
ness here. Heretofore the efforts of
large corporations have been in a meas
ure directed towards close internal
business, but this sudden opening up
of the family compact, as it were, is
taken to mean that independent grow

circle, and even given a helping hand

Construction Work of Last Ten Years
Represents Expenditure of
Five Millions.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. The official
opening of the navy drydock at Pearl
harbor, near Honolulu, Hawaii, late
this month will mark the successful
completion of one of the most difficult
engineering projects ever undertaken
by the United States government. The
immense dock represents a total in
vestment of more, than 95,000,000 and
nas Deen under construction for ten
years. Secretary of the Navy Daniels
will officiate at the christening- of the
aocK about August 25.
The dock is completed iust in time
to add a much-needed facility for care
of the Ehips of the Pacific fleet. The
first vessel to enter the dock will nrob-
ably be one of the dreadnoughts of Ad
miral lloaman s rorce, possibly the New
Mexico. The dock is 1001 feet in length,
feet deep, 114 feet wide at the bot
tom and 138 feet wide at the top. It
will dock the largest shiD of war now
anoat or contemplated.
After the sections of the riork hart
been finished and were beinff- anrhnrri
in their places in 1913 the water was
pumped out. whereupon the bottom of
the dock was forced upward by press
ure from the sides and the engineers
and workmen were forced to stand
helplessly by and watch the fruits of
four years of labor and millions of
dollars or money crushed in a shapeless
mass oi aeDris.
A new plan of construction on a much
greater scale was then adopted. Con
crete sections 60 feet long and the full
wtatn or the dock were cast one at a
time and lowered to the bottom of th
drydock. securely anchoring it. Th.Ti
the great structure was built. Early
in March this year the dock was pumped
