I'd Adv-
Every package sent from this store absolutely guaranteed. If you cannot eall
at our store write or phone your orders. We will send goods promptly by parcel
post. We are sole agents for the celebrated Nyal line of Non-Secret Remedies and
toilet preparations. In our candy line you will find Thompson's Milk Chocolates
only sold in Reliable Drug Stores.
To the Fditor: linad bonds
fh mid not be voted in my opinion
for several reasons. First let us
consider the expense. Under the
plan proposed, we will pay $123,000
in interest. Thesp dollars will
build us nothing.. This money if
used for roads would macadamize
the road from Maupin by liakeoven
and .Slianjko to Antelope with a
'trip of macadam nine feet wide.
Hence, if the money were wisely
spent and only 5 per cent, which
is considered legitimate, is used
for engineering, we would have
$247,000 of value in roads- $200,-
000 1 esw $13,01X1 for entnureriiii
and these roads .would cost us
$383,500. The bond method is
the nm-t expensive method of
biiildiiu) roads, for you must add
the interest to the cost of the road.
But in Columbia County in
b inds of .f!l(IO,000 the engineering
eostt) were nearly $100,000. The
surveying is done under the direc
tion of ihe Slate Highway Depart
ment It is not under control of
our county court. The plans and
specifications will be m ule by the
Stale Highvny Department. So
it is possible ihal 25 per cent o
the hpnd issue may, ax it did in
Columbia County, go for engineer
ing. Our taxes will be increased 5-7
of a mill each of the first four
yeaisto pay the interest and 2 and
1-6 mills the fifth ranging down
to I and -1-10 mills the fourteenth.
The money is not rightly ap
pointed. If bond money is to be
used it should be spent upon roads
beginning . at the market, places
and depots and extending out into
the rural districts. The proposed
issue will be expended upon two
highways, largely with an eye t'
atiraoling the tourist. The people
of Rams-ay, Pub-h Flat, Nansene,
Fiiend, Wainic, W'apintia, Smock
and Criterion will derive no direct
benefit from this bond issue.
The money will not complete
the work outlined, II is proposal
to umke n patcli here and a patch
there, $27,500 will not cninpltlo
the road from The Dalles to Dufur.
If ihti road was surfaced on this
strip 20 feet wide there would
be lu and (5-10 cents a square yard
with which to do trie w-.irk. If
the surfacing were nine feet wide
third w.mld be 3J and : cents to
the yard available. On the 20
miles from Tygh grade to Maupin
there would be available 19 cents
a yard on a road bed nine feet
wide. That Ce 'tainly '.' is not
enough to complete this piece of
The bonds not completing the
mm m-'mmmmmmmmm
aupin Drug
road, the nuj(t step would bp to
put on more tax to get mqney to
comple.e the work. That is what
was done in Columbia County.
The bond advocates are starting
out to do a $000,000 job with
$2(10,000. In Columbia' County
the millage rate or roads was 3
m ils before bonding, Jt has pot
oeen less than 7 and 1-2, and has
been as much as l nnd 1-2 milln
since bonding, ("hat county has
spent $1,003,000 on its rorda in
four years and there is not a fool
of paved road in it. The farmer's
tvxec there are almost three limes
as high as they were before the
county bonded. Columbia Coun
ty's assessed valuation is. the same
as Wasco County's.
In Portland there is a mighty
corporation locally called the
" WarrenilD Faying Trust." I
bad occasion as a membar of the
Koads and Highways committee
of the Oregon House of Representa
tives in J5H3 to oppose this octo
pus. A certain Btate senator was
clearly their agent there. They
attempted to gain their points by
an manner oi trieuery. iney use
money, influence and coercion.
They buy the press whenever they
can. Tips "Trust" is helping
finance nearly all the road bond
propositions iu the slato. It has
ha. I its hands in the Multnoma
County and Portland city treasur
ies. Most of Oregon's road phil
anthropists are stockholders in
this corporation, We should be
on guard or we will be playing
the "Trust's'1 game here, A vote
against the bond issuu is a vote
ag ainst the ''Trust"
G ivernor Wiihyamiby in his
address at Friend, June 10th. ad

tioii'ls, He is in a position to see

How to Get the Most Barn
Value for Your Money
Yes, our business is selling lumber BUT satisfaction
to the buyer must go with every bill we Bell or WE are
not satisfied,
We know that if you are building a barn and you want
and expect that barn to he the best in every respeot that
the money you put into it can produce.
And we make it our business to see that every barn
bill we sell shall be satisfactory in every detail so far as
material, cost and quality are concerned, and we sometimes
go a long ways to make good on that policy.
It will be. well worth your while to bring us your bill,
or come to us when you first: decide to build we will help
you from start to finish - -. j- . ...
We have planned many barns this fall for our customers
small shed roof barns, one story dairy barns circle roof
barns with special Tum-A-Lum constructionlarge gam
brel roof barns and can tshow you plans, pictures and
costs of various types. 1
No obligation we'll be glad to do it.
