the old road between The Dalles

"Hollow" had supported a com

one Scheraeckan, whence emanat

Sends Portland Booster On Ills
The reception tendered Tom
Richardson, manager of the Port-
laud Commercial Club, by the licud
boosting organization, wound up
last Wednesday evening with n big
meeting In Lara's hall. The hall
was packed to capacity, nud to
ihe enthusiastic gathering Mr.
Richardson delivered a striking ad
dress concerning the Ways and
means ot publicity and its vital
necessity at this juncture of Central
One of the most interesting of
the speaker s suggestions wus that
the ladies of Bcud organize a club
lor the purpose of welcoming new
comers and making their introduc
lion to the town n pleasant one.
Such an organization, in 11 measure
auxiliarv to the Commercial Club,
will be perfected at once, it is un
derstood. On Wednesday afternoon Mr.
Richardson was taken up to Ben
ham Falls by auto, and before the
meeting was dined at the home of
J. M. Lawrence. Thursday morn
ing he left for Burns, via Prine-ville.
It is. greatly to be hoped that
Bend again will be visited by "dis
tinguished guests," if for no other
reason than that a repetition of
last Saturdays city-cleaning mayj
occur. In an Hour wall street was
tidied up in splendid shape. Few
easily-rendered public services on
the part of its citizens could help
Bend more. Why not dedicate one
hour each week, or even each
month, to a brief street and yard ,
cleaninc campaign such as last Sat
urday's? Twice within the decade the
British' empire has lost its monarch
through death. Nine ycais ago
last January Victoria died at the
ripe age of 82, after the longest
reign of British history, nearly 65
years. Her son died last Friday
night after a brief illness, aged 69.
His second son, taking the title of
George V, at the age of ,15 enters
upon a reign for which be seems to
have little talent or relish.
