A united boost for Washington
county was the keynote of the
meeting held at the court house
Friday evening under the au
spices of the Washington County
Judge Hollis of Forest Grove
presided, and in owning the
meeting spoke of the campaign
of publicity in which many Ore
gon counties have embarked.
He pointed out the fact that while
the individual efforts of commun
ities were sometimes without ap
parent result, a united effort was
bound to be successful and urged
his hearers to join the procession
forming to boost the county rath
er than to flock off in a little pro
cession of their own.
Dr. Tamiesie spoke briefly
along the same lines. He touch
ed on the benefit bound to accrue
to Hillsboro by the opening of
the new electric line, and ex
pressed the hope that it be ex
tended beyond the city, that the
whole county might share alike.
He was followed by William B,
Wells, northwest manager of
Sunset Magazine, whose theme
was civic pride. He told of the
successful campaign of exploita
tion of Medford, Ashland, Grants
'ass, Albany and other towns,
and explained the advertising
campaign of the Southern Faci-
carried on by Sunset. lie
showed that the plan was not
one of profit to the magazine, but
simply an effort to induce settle
ment along the lines of the road.
Tbe Harriman lines were anxious
to assist communities which
showed a disposition to help
themselves. The most effectual
way to reach prospective immi
grants was in their homes, and
the purpose of the company was
to reach them with descriptive
literature and help them in reach
ing a decision on the new home
before leaving the old.
E. G. Adams, also of Sunset,
followed Mr. Wells and spoke
along the same lines. To illus
trate the importance of going
after things rather than to wait
for them, he told the story of
the old darkey with a fondness
for chicken who had hisminis
ter as a guest at dinner. The
minister, also fond of chicken,
believing in the efficacy of prayer,
said he would pray that a chick
en be sent him, but his host be
lieved that a prayer that hp be
sent after the chicken would
bring quicker results.
The last speaker was W. II.
Wehrung, who emphasized the
necessity of prompt action. He
spoke of his work in connection
with the Oregon exhibit at the
Seattle exposition and called at
tention to the fact that prepara
tions for the exhibit must begin
at once. The county court has
expressed a willmgnoss to appro
priate $1,000 toward the fund,
and the speaker indorsed the
Sunset plan as being the one best
calculated to give the kind of lit
erature required. It was impor
tant that a high grade of work
be presented, which would be
read and preserved and not
thrown away after a hasty
glance. Judge Hollis then called for
subscriptions to launch the cam
paign. A fund of $3,000 was de
sired, of which the county would
contribute $1,000. but the fund
was not necessarily limited to

ELECTRIC CARS BY AUGUST 1.
Rapid Construction Work Makes
Some comment was occasioned
Monday by the construction crew
of the electric road resuming
work on the completed track east
of Second street. It was found
that an error was made in laying
the track, and the grade was
from two to five inches higher
than that established by the en
gineers. It was necessary to
bring the entire crew back to the
completed portion, as an enorm
ous amount of excavation was

Graduating Class Listens to Scholar

Last Sunday evening the Chris
tian church of Hillsboro was fill

tives, teachers and friends of the
public school children. The de
corations were leaves, ferns and
roses, and hanging above the
pulpit was the Ninth grade mot
to, "Finish What You Attempt,"
in letters of old rose and pearl
gray. Ihe isinth and bighth
grades wore their class ribbons
and roses and were a pleasing
The choir sang, led by Mr. and
Mrs. Webb, vocalists; Bruce
Wilkes, violinist, and Miss Ger

Rev. Beery of the Christian
church gave the address which
was replete with good thoughts.

theme, as figurative of life.

he gave excellent advice to par

them being the deadly cigarette.

for some time between H. H.

man, culminated luesday morn

ford was severely cut by an ax
in the hands of the enraged en
Wellbon was arrested by Sher
iff Connell shortly after the af
fray and placed in the county
jail, charged with assault with a
According to the story told by
Ledford he has been the victim
of constant abuse from the engi
neer ever since the latter assum
ed his position about a month
ago. He says Wellbon entered
the engine room before the trou
ble and began a tirade of abuse,
following which he seized the ax
and attacked him. Iiedford re
ceived a long gash on the left
frontal bone, cutting through the
scalp and denting but not frac
turing the bone. The ax, a dou
ble bitted one, struck a glancing
blow after he had fallen, making
a second wound immediately back
of the first.
Ledford claims that only the
interference of Electrician Light-
foot, who was attracted by his
cries, saved him from death at
the hands of Wellbon. There
were no witnesses to the encoun
ter. Dr. Tamiesie was called and
dressed the injuries, and IahI
ford was removed to his home on
Fir street, between Second and
Third. No serious results are
anticipated unless blood poison
ing sets in.
Wellbon's story of the trouble
differs materially from that told
by his fireman. He admits that
bad blood existed between them,
but claims that Ledford attacked
him with a poker, and in defend
ing himself he seized the ax to
ward off the threatening blows.
He claims the wounding of IamI
ford to be entirely an accident.

died instantly. Coroner Brown
was called and returned to Hills

Lester M. Nelson, of Naples,
Maine, says in a recent letter: "I
have used Dr. King's New Discov
ery many years for coughs and
colds, and I think it saved ray lite.
I have found it a reliable remedy
for throat and lung complaints, ami
would no more be without a lott!e

For nearly forty years New Discov
