Per Day; Manufacturing 100
' to 150 Pounds of Cheese at
Present Supply of Milk.
The opening oi the Co-operative
cheese factory in lower . Siletz valley
last week has rifted a considerable
burden from the minds of the farmers
of that section due to the fact that
they can now. market their products
without the worry of long hauls to
town, according to a report from that
section Tuesday. E. T. Truax of Al
bany, cousin of L. A. Hulbert of Tole

capacity when in full operation will
be 3000 pounds of milk per day with
an output of cheese at 11 pounds to
the hundred pounds of milk. Although
the owners of the factory sio not ex
pect to make anything out of their
Investment this year, they feel that
cheese making will be one of the main
Industries in that section and the op

hasten Us development.

Coyote Club to
Hold Meeting at
Eddyville June 3
Eddyville Man Sends Out Invi
tation to All Coat, Sheep and
Poultry Raisers to Attend
The Leader is in receipt of a letter
from W. J. Cllne of Eddyville asking
all people interested to the extermina
tion of the destructive coyote, such
as those who raise sheen, goats or
poultry, to attend a meeting of the
Coyote Club to be heid in that village
on Saturday, June3. Mr. Cllne says
that unless some drastic action is
taken many people will be forced out
of the above named industries, not
being able to combat the pest single
handed. His letter in part is as follows:
''Sheep and goat men, chicken and
turkey misers the time is coming
when the old red hen can't hatch a
brood of chickens in the fence corner
and the turkey gobbler will have 'to
change his roost from the fence to a
high limb in the trees; the goats no
longer can make their bed grounds
on the high knobs of the goat haven
country of Lincoln county and grazing
sheep are constantly in danger. Why
because the coyotes' are increasing
in such numbers that unless some
thing is done we will all be bankrupt
through the destructlveness of this
preying pest. I repeat it again, if
something Is not done in the way of
concerted action against the coyote
the coming summer the sheep and
goat industries in Lincoln county will
be no more.
"Be at the meeting in Eddyville on
Saturday, June 3, and let's see If
we can't get together and make
things hot for the coyote.

Need of Transportation Facilities; $63,000 Bond Issue to Re
place Bridges Washed Out While $40,000 Issue Will Construct

The most satisfactory results of Friday's election was gained when
It was learned that, the two bridge bond lssuea, one for $63,000 to le
place bridges washed out on tho Siletz river and other sections dur
ing the high water last fall and the $40,000 bond issue for tho con
struction of a bridge across the Yaq' ulna river near Toledo, for the
relief of the settlers llvlns on the scuthside, who have, up to this
time been placed under serious handicaps because of no outlet to
market except by boat acroas the river, had carried.
The people of the southslde are very jubilant over the results of
the election, and they have much cause for joy considering the hard
ships they have undergone due to lack of a bridge. - The people of
Siletz section, while grateful because of the election results, never
theless were more confident than the southslde people, due to the
fact that sentiment over the county before the election seemed to
favor the replacement of bridges washed out, but seemed to be op
posed to voting bonds for entirely new enterprises.
The vote oh the bond issues, by counties, was as follows: ,
