Farmers’ Union Meets.
— All Should
Part in it.
The muetiog called for Saturday
by the Farmers’ Union was held in
the Heazlet Theatre and was well
attended by a very enthusiastic
crowd who thoroughly enjoyed the
The address of welcome was de
livered by Attorney W . C. Chase,
who is not at all unfamiliar with the
principles upon which the Union is
based, the demands made by the
organization and the means em
ployed to achieve its purpose. Hav
ing been raised on a farm, Mr.
Chase fully appreciates the situation
and has do hesiteDcy in expressing
himself in full sympathy with the
farmer. Ilis address was much en
The second number on the pro
gram was a song by little Miss
Frohaska, who possesses a very
u d u s u s I voice for a child of her a g e ,
which brought forth a hearty encore
to which she graciously responded.
Rev T. B. McDonald then came
forward with a short talk on the
social side of this great problem, a
feature which should not be ne
glected, as he clearly showed in the
course of his remarks.
Prof. Cecil Iv. Lyaus then ap
peared with his violin and with Miss
Iva Howey as accompanist, rendered
a solo in a very laudable manner,
bringing forth a hearty applause.
State Organizer Hill delivered one
of bis impressive and convincing ad
dresses, making clear not only the
many advantages to be gained
through organization, but the abso
lute necessity of such action upon
the part of the producer to enable
him to get anywhere near a fair
compensation for his efforts.
An adjournment was then taken
until atter the uood hour, and when
all had partaken of the midday re
past, a goodly number again as
sembled, Mr. Hill entertaining by
further explaining the many advan
tages to be derived by thorougly
understanding the commercial situ
After the obligation of new mem

officers of this Union took place,
Mr. Hill snog a solo in a very r leas-

gave a recitation, which concluded
a very satisfactory meeting
Another meeting of this Union
will be held today for the purpose
of looking after some unfinished
business before Mr. Hill returns to
his home in eastern Oregon.
The following letter was received
by Road Supervisor Brewer, of this
city recently and was written by
Lionel R. Webster, Chairman of the
Executive Committee of the Oregon
Good Roads Association, and is
The purpose of the Oregon Good
Roads Association is to assist in
organizing each county of the state
into a good roads association, with
a view of procuring such an amend

state, and such legislation as will

If an amendment
to the constitution, permitting each
county to issue such bonds, were

compel the county to issue bonds,
but would merely permit it to do so

for me to tell a man as familiar with
the subject of roads as you are, the
great advantages and profit of a
hard surface, permanent road that
could be travelled at all times of the
year, and upon which you could
haul rill the load that your wagon

think of it.
Besides, after such
roads were built the expense of
keeping them up would be but a
small matter compared to the ex
