- Address of rrestdaat Safer.
President 7 Hofer of the Willamette
Valley 'Development league stated that
thla was the first of a series ol county
mass conventions that were planned to
further the development of western
Oregon and promote the Improvement of
transportstlon facilities and opening of
harbors on the west coast. The organi
sation had also during the past ' year
taken up ths taxation problem as under
lying the whole altuatlon of promoting
the rational development of the state.
A report from the committee on draft
ing a tax bill had been submitted st tht
Eugene convention and its recommenda
tions had met with general favor, while
-jione of the propoaltlona there laid down
had been questioned or controverted.
What Thla Xrfag-a Steads Toe
In calling together -this mass conven
tion of the farmers and producers and
shippers of Tarn hill county It may be
of interest to tell Just -what this league
standa for.. The motto adopted at tht
Eugene convention indicates the prin
ciple Involved "A Square Deal for Ore
gon. The first address Issned to the
people setting forth the transportation
condiyons prevailing In this state reated
on four declarations of fact that have
never been questioned, and ware vouched
for by the transportation committee of
the Portland Chamber of Commerce, as
followat i '.
1. -That Oregon had enacted no hos
tile or drastic railroad legislation and
had repealed the commission law.
Z.. That Oregon had 'taxed railroad
property lightly compared to other states
all around us, on an average about HOI
per mile leas taxes annually.- '
I. That compared with the states all
around us Oregon had received almost
no railroad construction, while the other
three ooast-states showed from J00 to
BOO miles of new lines each.
4. . That there was a large net surplus
of earnings to the credit of the lines In
Oregon, and .that large sums of money
earned on the. lines In Oregon wareoex
pfcnded In constructing new! Jln.e . Is
other states. ---
i?- More Xlnesal relief.
Based on- these undeniable proposi
tions offset.' this . organisation de
manded of the Harrlman system a trior
liberal policy for the development of
Oregon and we are happy to say that
this has been met In a substantial man
ner. A new line la to be conatructed to
Coos bay that will open a large deep-
sea harbor to the producers of western
Oregon. There hss been 'further an
nouncement of 14.100,000 set aside for
construction of additional mileage. Tht
auggestion that the Harrlman system
annually expend at leastrone- half-its
surplus earnings' In construction of new
lines In Oregon, made In good faith, hat
been well received and If carried out In
good faith will bridge a chaam that was
widening Into an almost Inseparable
gulf tn this state between the people
an3" ah corporations, . ,.,...,.
- Thla league stands for absolute Jus
tice In the relations between capital In
vested In the-railroads-and the people,
asking no favors for either but fair
play and Justice for both. . The people
should not be deceived by much of tht
stuff that Is printed asserting that
140.000.000 Or $50,000,010 are tp be spent
on new railroads In Oregon. Such It

Another prisoner who has been eon
fined in the Jail la also assisting In the
work -of- moving 'the- cells. A special
guard, however, has been employed to
keep watch on the twoprlsoners, day
and night. As the cells will be exposed
to the cold weather outside for some
time, the prisoners are kept In the city
Jail at night .
The heavy, cells, which are all bolted
firmly together, are moved bodily as ont

tons. The entire end of the old Jail was
torn out to give' ample room for their
removal, and they are bejng net up on

For several weeks past the members

the ground that It emanated from Mayor

the health office was In need of as

Lane also theatened to close the doors
of the health office and lay the blame
on the council If additional funds were
