President B. W; Johnson in the
chair. ;. ;
There was much discussion of
various matters, but the most in-
vallis is without an adequate
water system for fire protection,
and the outlying additions to the
city, - - comprising considerable
portion thereof, are wholly with

purposes or fire protection; and

. I wish to call the attention of
the people of Benton; county to
the importance of maintaining a
creditable exhibit of our products
at the Lewis and - Clark "Fair.
Thereis no longer doubt buiwhat
the Fair will be a success and
that thousands of people from the
Eastern states will visit it dur
ing the next few weeks. Many
of these will be homeseekers who
will select their location from
what they see at the Fair. The
county court has selected a booth
in a good location in the Agricul
tural building for the purpose of
displaying Benton, county ; pro
ducts, we have :. competent - men
in charge of.it and we certainly
have a most energetic and compe
tent superintendent in Mr. French
but he can'fTdo it all. -Neither
can he accomplish what is desir
ed with the help oi his assistants

want Is thev help of every man,
woman and child in Benton coun
ty if possible. ' -T -
Wake up ! Now is -the time
for action ! It is to your inter
est to build up our county by
showing these people what we
have and in inducing them to
settle amo ng us.
borne of the counties are spend
ing thousands of dollars on their
exhibit, notably Coos - county,
which has erected a building of
its own at an1 estimated cost of
$20,000 ana it put $10,000 more
in its exhibit. , I do not feel the
need of any great expenditure of
money by us, but we now havt
our booth there and by the
operation ot tne people we can
keep it full of the products of our
county at a very small cost com
pared ttrwhat other counties are
spending. VYou have grains, fruits,
grasses, hops, and vegetables that
we want and must have to prop
erly represent our county and its
resources. , Roses by the basket
ful are going to waste every week
in Corvallis and we need them to
decorate our booth at the Fair.
Can you not bring something ?
Arrangements are made- for a
shipment of samples Friday of
each week. Therefore if vou
have anything for us communi
cate with- Mr. H. L- French or
myself, or leave it at my office in
Hotel Corvallis building not later
than 10 a. m. Fridavs. - -
