From what we hear, the people of
Weston and of the adjacent uplands
are almost a unit in opposition to the
county bonding issue. "
The general feeling aeems to be that
ways and means should be provided for
the improvement of the many dirt roads
which the fanners use for hauling
rather than of one through road which
he and others use chiefly for pleasure.
Moreover, in view of the virtual fail
ure of the costly macadam experiment,
a well defined fear is manifested that
the county might chance to spend
million dollars for so-called hard sur
faced highways and find them in the
end a fiasco. .
Especially among the uplacd farmers
is there a pronounced aversion to con
tributing toward another fifty percent
dividend melon for the paving trust
when their own roads are largely neg
lected. '
To the TVople of Weston and Vicinity!
What are you going to do with the
macadam road?
You know Ita present condition.
Ton know tt ts caput golug to plov'r.
Tou know that the bulk of the road
taxes of the entire county haa twen
aunk In thta foolish piece of road
building and la In danger of being en
tirely wiped out. Ilow are you going
to save it? There Is a quarter of a
million of dollars and more of the
road tax money of t'matilla county
Invested In this macadam.
If you vote down the bond Issue,
how and where are you coin to get
the money to hard surface thla ma
cadam T Tou cannot get it by a pe
dal mllUre tax levy, for the other
eertlona of the county will vote solidly
against you. for you deny them a road
and their only chance to get roads Is
by this bond laeue. Tou cannot take
the bulk of the las money of the en
tire county any more. ' The last legl-
lature panned a law prohibiting thla
very thing.
Tou are facing an acute road con J I
tloa and a serious one tf you stop to
live It a little Intelligent thought. Pn-
lees this macadam Is hard surfaced at
once, tt will be a total loss and the
only method and only source from
which you can expect money aufft
clent to lay thta hard surface la
through the bond Issue.
Thla bond laeue, you know, la not
going to Increase " your taxea. The
figures are very plain. The tax is 0
centa on each II0 of aaeeaeed
valuation for the first four years and
the average tax foe the entire fourteen
yeare ta only tl M per liooe, and fig-
lured upon the present assessed valua
tion of the entire county of H 1.004..
too, Aa thla valuation Increases the
tax will decrease: as new lands ere
brought on the market the taxes wilt
decrease and above all aa the enor
mous maintenance charge of $I0 a
mile against your macadam road un
der the present condition ts wiped out
your taxea will decrease,
Tou wsnt good roads and you know
down in your hearts that the only
feasible way of securing this Is
through the bond Issue, Tou build
your city water system, your school
houses and all other necessary public
Improvements through Issuing bonds
and yeu do not consider these bonds a
mortgage on your homes, nor will
you consider the road bonds such.
Tou get th roads and you get back
in labor and through labor Ts per
cent of what the roads cost. In other
words. tlOS.Qoo of this money will be
expended for labor alone.
But laying all thla aside the actual
situation which now confronta you
demands serious thought If you are
going to save your macadam road ou
must get busy at once and unless yit
do get busy and save It by hard-stir-
facing It, you are going to lose all that
you even now have. Tou know you
cannot expect people of the rest of th
county to donate you money to hard
surface this road when the other na
tions have not even a macadam bv
for their ure.
These same men and same Intre
who are so loudly protesting aealnii
the bond Issue on the grounds that !t
will increase taxes are the reguV
ca!amlty howlers who raise this same
cry every time a public Improvement
of this character 'Is proposed. The
are the- big rich men of the co ii
and In proportion they pay less tare.'
than the small farmer or small busi
ness man, but they always raise this
howl and make their' appeal t the
to?le to protect them and make It
nnmtble for them to escape their Just
and proportionate share of the taxa
tion. Let them howl. The money' they
have they cannot take with them.
Many of them will be dead before
the bonds terminate and the streets
psved with gold wPI be no Joy or sat
isfaction to either, them or their de
scendants left In I'mntilla county.
Think this over; take it home with
yon snd seriously consider It. f Adv.)

Koho haa a tall ball team excess
ively and preternslurally tall. Goliath
of Oath could have nalked under the
extended arms of it catcher, pitcher
and first baseman without doffing his
brass head piece. When the lti he
stopped a ball he merely reached half
way to first base and handed the
sphere to the stalwart guardian of
that ststlon, who likewise met hint
half way, Either of these three Broo
dlgnsgtana O.loll and the Iloaklns
twins would make a good telephone
lineman, aa he wouldn't have to don
climber when he went out trouble
shooting. Carl Gilbert saves baa
balls In practice down at Kcho, aa his
lanky hopefuls merely reach up and
grab the moon when they feel Ilk
"tossing It around."
Hrlll had a hard time pitching to
these visiting giants, aa he could hard
ly shoot the ball above their kneea
without throwing It over the grand
stand. Pvich was th elevsted trajec
tory that "Dumpy" Hlomgren requisi

pretty duel with Odrll, hla elongated
