Devoted to the Interests of Southern Wasco County
VOL. I, NO. 6,
THE YEAR $1.50
llll! VOTERS
J. M. Conklin Will have
Necessary Blanks at
Maupin State Bank
in Short Time
Much interest has been arous
ed this weekjn registration for
voting at the approaching elect
tion, which is now leas than a !
month away. A number of
the measures to be voted on are
attracting keen interest. The
prohibition amendment has held
the center of the stage locally
on account of the interest arous
ed by the meeting here Sunday
night and a new series of prohi
bition posters displayed here at
at the same time. This is a vital
question and every voter should
be prepared to vote on it accord
ing to his. or her convictions.
There' are other measures of
great importance to be'voted on.
Unless the voter registers it is an
extremelyLdifficult matter to cast
his ballot. But there. is no place
in Maupin' to register. It looked
as if we might all be deprived of
our vote or be forced to make a
trip to the county seat, when Mr.
J. M. Conklin, of the Maupin
State Bank came forward with
the solution. He is' anotary and
has volunteered to secure the
blanks necessary. These ought
to be here by Monday j; and all
who have not registered should
do so at once. Time for register
ing expires Thursday, Oct. 15.
Maupin should make a good
showing by polling a large vote
on election day.
Have Attractive Display

tive and a credit as well as
benefit to the proprietors.

Business transactions" between
Southern Wasco and other parts
of the county because of the fact
that no mail is carried to and
from here on the O-W. train,
are almost impossible to handle.
The Oregon Trunk gives us
splendidlmail service to Portland,
betterthan could be secured on
the day train. But we need, and
have a right to, mail service
to and from the post-offices in
our own'county.' It requires days
for a piece of mail to travel two
hundred fifty miles, via Portland,
to reach Dufur, twenty-seven
miles over the hills. The only
means of direct communication
with The Dalles is by wire and
that is always expensive and
usually unsatisfactory. ,
Wasco county should be a
commercial unit with Maupin
and The Dalles the .connecting
points. If Dalles business men
wish to cultivate commercial
relations with business men in
this end of the county, they will
get behind this move to give us
a direct mail service and see
that we get it.
