The committee which attended
the Port meeting at Newport came
home with the report that the plan
was unboubtedly defeated, as New
port had quietly got busy with a
petition to form a port of their own
and thus had the County Port
headed off.. The committee also ad
vised that the residents of the Alsea
form a port and thus be in a posi
tion to derive -soine 'x'nefit from the
immense body of timber- in the
south end of the country. J. II.
Glines circulated a petition and
secured 34 names which is in ex
cess of the number required by law
to put the plan before the voters of
the district. . The petition was then
sent to the county court. The dis
trict to be embraced in the port of
Alsea is all that part of the county
lying south of the township lines
between townships twelve and
and thirteen. The district will
therefore be bounded by Benton
County on the East and Lane
County on the South. These port
petitions may make it necessary for
the County Court to readjust the
precinct lines as in few cases "will
the precinct lines correspond with
the exterior limits of the ports, but
in any case the law provides that the
court must call the special election
within certain limits as to time.
The Alsea petition was filed Feb
ruary 21th so we may expect an
election sometime between April 15
and May 5th.

The people-of Oregon, Washing

have an opportunity o see a "man
bird" in actual flighc. Lots of us
have read about flying machines and
it is the desire of every one to see
one of these soaring across country,
disputing for space in "the heavens
with the clouds, and making speed
that will put the fastest bird in the
world to shame.

at Portland on March 5, 6 and 7,
which will be the first chance that
has been given the people of this

genuine cross-country and high aiti-j

Mr. Irvin Replies.
Editor Leader: We commend
Toledo in their united effort for tho
upbuilding of their town, and no
one should find fault with any
honest effort to make it the best
We have no better authority than
the Leader for the sentiment, that
it is poor policy to attempt to build
up a town at the expense of its
neighbor. This is equally true of
personal reputation. When ono
judges of the motives of another,
they usually apply their own stand
ard of measurement.
It is for the best interests of so
ciety that the leople should not
only take an interest in the public
affairs of the county, but should
express their opinions on such mat
ters. The Leader has dono a good
service to the county in discussim?
its public affairs. Why then should
I be censured and my motives mis
represented, for expressing an opin
ion, even if such opinion seems to
be not in accord with some of tho
people of Toledo? Does Toh-'.i
claim a monopoly on private a:. I
public opinion as well as nearly
everything else in the county? I
would not ask Toledo to inve us tho
sawmills, because they belong to
private companies, and if we would
get them we would have to deal
direct with these companies. I
would not ask Toledo to give us tho
county seat, hecouse it belongs to
the whole county, and they have
placed it at Toledo for a little while
until they find a better place for it.
I would not ask Toledo for the high
school, because that is under the
control of the County High School
Board, and we feel sure they will
put it in the right place for the kst
interests of the county schools. I
would not ask Toledo for any school
or road district, because both of
these matters are under the direction
of the County Court, who will no.

There is no doubt hut that "To
