COUNTY ROAD BONDS.
Although Klamath county has
spent thousands ot dollars in road
.work In tho past 10 years, It is ready
now td)ondnlteclt-Up tothe consti
tutional limit tor tho purposo ot co
operating with tho Htato In new road
construction, according to n Btato
ment by Senator Georgo T. Baldwin.
Senator Baldwin's statement Is ot
especial interest In this county just
at present when' n suggestion has
boon undo that wo also vote bonds
tor roads. Coming as It did trom
Redmond, which may bo said to
roprcscnt moro especially tho tann
ing interests ot tho county, tho pro
posal seems to start off without tho
usual necessary preliminary, that Is,
ot convincing tho farmers ot tho need
ot a bond issue.
That ono Is needed thcro can be
llttlo doubt. Our roads aro becom
ing moro important every day, not
only for tho transaction ot our own
business but for tho attraction ot
tho money bringing tourist travel.
Wo rightly expect much from the
stato highway commission, but wo
can expect and will receive moro If
we show a disposition to co-operate
by the expenditure ot our own
funds. "Tho Lord helps those who
help themselves.; Will not a county
road bond issue be tho sort of help
from which wo can expect big returns?
Many of Foui-lj Doctrines Advanced
for Years by A. V. of 1j., Ho De
clares Tribute Paid to Mem
ory of Oregon's Governor.
It was tho ambition ot James
Withycombe's life to bo governor of
Oregon, and those who knew and
loved him were glad that tho ambi
tion was realized and then crowned
by tho people's vote of confidence In
a renomlnation and re-election. Yes
terday those friends, and Indeed the
whole state, were plunged Into grief
at the news ot tho sudden death of
- James Wlthycombe loved Oregon.
Fow men know the stato from one
end to the other any better than he,
and few had any greater understand
ing ot its possibilities. Such under
standing can come only to one who
travels over our wide areas and is
competent to judgo of what he sees.
And Mr. Wlthycombe was competent.
For many years ho proved himself
to bo an expert farmer, a judge ot
flno stock and of good soil and later,
when his duties took him about over
the stato, his knowledge and experi
ence told him what Oregon had and
what Oregon could bo.
Ills travels, too, and his service
at tho Oregon Agricultural college
gave him another invaluable thing
the friendship of hundreds and hun
dreds of his fellow citizens. He
never forgot a faco or a name. So,
when it came to his attempt to realize
his ambition to be governor, although
ho had little money to spend and no
flowery speeches to mako, his quiet
strength was in his friends and they
gave him what he wanted.
As governor Mr. Wlthycombe made
no startling Innovations. Tho lime
light had no attractions for him. Ho
Blmply went Into tho job, gave it all
be had In him, and, died in harness.
He was Intensely partisan, and he
-was intensely loyal. Nothing pained
him more than to learn that a friend
was not worthy. But once his mind
was made up he was inexorable.
Before the United States entered
tbo war one might have said that
Governor Withycombe's one interest
was Oregon and Its betterment. But
tbo prospect ot war brought out
something moro; a virile American
Ism which took its place along with
his love for the state and found its
expression in preparedness before
the war and, during it, in the utmost
effort that Oregon do its share and
As ho camo into his second term
he realized and spoko ot the fact
that ho wus getting old. His ambi
tion was realized, politically ho
wanted nothing more. He looked
forward only to tho satisfaction of
Hiving tho stato a good administra
tion, of eliminating friction and end
ing factional strlfo. Perhaps in
politics that is an unattainable ideal,
but he was in the very best position
to seek It and In some measure to
realize It.' Now tho opportunity la
gono and Oregon's Jqsij, la4grpat.
ThBeKJsdaturji .camo t0 nn end

dfj,a perfect day." ,Tp which we al

(From Wodnesdny'8 Dally.)
Those who went to tho Hippo
drome last night expecting to hear
Otto Hartwlg, president of tho Stain,
FcrhtlonJ'oCiil'auorJ niltfol caustlp
comment in.r,egnxu 10 mo ncuvuico,
and principles of tho Loyal Legion ot
Loggers and Lumbormou were sadly
disappointed. Mr. Hartwlg merely
poured n small quantity ot oil on the
slightly troubled waters ot union and
Four-L competition. Ho declared
that tho ideals of tho legion a
square donl, better conditions and
tho eight-hour day havo loug been
fought for by the trades unions. A
packed houso heard his address.
"I am hero to clear up n mis
understanding ns to tho relations of
tho two organizations," ho said.
"Personally I havo nothing against
tho Loyal Legion. It did a wonder
ful work during tho war. I hopo
that it will be able to do what tho
American federation has done.
Square Deal Union Aim.
"The A. F. ot L. stands for a
square deal. Any other organization
that has this for Its object, and Is
trying to better tho conditions ot tho
Workers, has our support. We aro
not on tho defensive; neither aro we
Indulging in criticism. I understand
that soma criticism has been
launched nt tho unions and that somo
unkind things havo been said about
us by some who were connected with
the establishment ot another organi
zation. This, however, Is not the
policy underlying that organization,
and I am assured that there will bo
no moro of these attaks."
Mr. Hartwlg asserted that organi
zation ot labor Is an essential to
progress, pointing out Russia, torn
by civil strife, and falling behind
when most needed by the allies, as
the one nation In which organization
was sternly repressed.
Organization Won War.
"Wo have just gone through a
terrible conflict, and nothing but or
ganization mado success in that con
flict possible. It organization Is per
mlssablo to prevent an autocratic
nation from dominating tho world,
why should -not labor organize
against an industrial autocracy?"
Labor organizations are tho out
growth ot conditions. Theynre not
a luxury, but a necessity. Without
them wo would have a revolution In
America in 60 days.
"Labor must organlzo to hold Its
own with organized dollars. There
aro still some employers, and, by tho
way, I don't think you have any of
them here, who say to labor, 'You
must not organlzo.' That Is none of
the employer's business. Labor must
have an opportunity to function, to
right Its wrongs, to express Itself.
You can't keep on forever firing n
boiler and forover sitting on the
safety valve, you know.
Other Movements Praised.
"Often movements start which
have a dgree of organization. These
aro laudable; but often the full de
gree of organization Is not attained.
In regard to these, I wish to say that
the A. F. of L. wants to see tho work
ers get overy possible benefit, and
that we are for any organization that
will do this. We havo, however, in
the A. F. ot L. nn organization that
has already vastly improved the con
dition of labor, and my advlco to you
is to look things over before you
make a change"
Matt Mageo of the Central Labor
council presided at tho meeting last
night, and a brief address by G. H.
Baker and songs by tho Bend Im
perial Malo quartet, composed of Dr.
Turner, Prince and Sylvester tSaats
and O. A. Thorson wore given dur

PORTLAND, March 6. That Gor

of Lieutenant ltoseoo IIownrd, form

Co., now commander ot n llutllln -of)
During thb war Lieutenant 'How
ard had experience with but one sub
marine "It was off Capo Hnttonui
about 2 o'clock In tho morning," ho
said. "Wo woro running with lights,
I having decided that wo were ex
posed to less danger from submarines
than from collision with othor ves
sels. Tho lookouts reported tho path
of n torpedo diagonally across the
bow. I hurried on deck, but It was
pitch dark hnd wo could sea nothing
and did not have our listening de
vices. Wo woro nlmost convinced
that it was n porpoise which throw
tho streak ot light, but n few days
later n vessel was sunk by a sub
marine In tho untuo vicinity, which
led us to bellevo It really was a sub
we saw that night."
Tho sub chnsors, whilo thoy had
little real excltomont, experienced
moro discomforts and nctunl hard
ships than any other lino of service
except tho boys In the front lino

Howard, who said tho boats woro
uncomfortable and tho food consisted
principally ot hardtack.
