Harney County is not iroinir to
fhve il all Ivor own way for the
ration oi the dry farm expon
ent station as other bastern
regon counties are preparing
) make a fight for it. T ho lat
st in the ranks is Lake county.
t Oregon has a now governor,
'ccretary of State Benson having
een sworn in Monday morning
nmodiatoly following the receipt
f Gov. Chamberlain's resigna
Jon. Mr. Benson was not sure
nether he would call a special
ession of the legislature or not.
The Commercial Club iscr
ainly accomplishing good results
nd receiving much encourage
lent from outside sources. There
i much work to do from this

onsidenible importance tojho
ntiro interior, therefore it should
iave the support of every public
piritcd citizen of Harney coun
y. One important matter is the
jcation of the experiment sta
ion and this should have the par
icular attention of the farmers.
This is reported by a Kansas
aper. Once upon a time this
(articular time was two weeks

tho proposed amendment to the

which indicate a decided interest
in tho suggestions oi uiu nuu
and shows that the matters ad

importance. It is very encour

shown in legislation of particular
benefit to interior Oregon, and
another addressed to tho Port

its assistance in securing tho

Nearly every year, during the

short period of railroad building.
Ihisycaris no exception. Some
oeople do not realize that much
has bei-'n accomplished and think
that it has all just resulted in
talk. Ot course there has been
1 gnat doal of talk, but with the
talk there has been other things

luiring a throttle hold on a new
listrict which is liable to invas

ter the same thing. More than
twenty years ago this same out
it of procraslinators acquired
;ome rights-of-way in Harney
ounty. These rights have serv
ed the purpose for which they
wccq acquired. There is no dis
o.ntion to throw cold witer at
Mr. Harriman, but twenty years'
xpt ric nee has taught the people
o look for some ulterior motive
rt'hen Mr. Harriman moves. We
lope he does build and if he does
tve will swell his bank roll by
mving him haul everything we
-at and wear. It is up to Har-
iman to make good and the bur

sulted in the election of Sam
Mothcrshead as mayer: Piatt
Randall, recorder; Dr. W. C.
Brown and A. C. Welcome, coun
cilmen; J. C. Welcome, treasurer
and M. F. Williams marshal.
No name appeared on the bal
lot for mayor owing to the inter
pretation of the law that a name
should not be placed upon the
ticket without first being accept
ed. Win. Farre's name had been
submitted together with others
on a petition but Mr. Farre be
ing absent his acceptance was
impossible even should he have
been willing. A petition was
circulated asking that Sam Moth
ershead's name be placed on the
ballot as a candidate for mayor
but Sam refused to accept. Thus
it was necessary that voters
write the name of their choice
for mayor which resulted in a
majority for Mr. Mothcrshead
Mr. Clevenjrer also refused to
accept and as a result but three
names for councilmen appeared.
Jake Welcome had no opposition
The vote stood as follews:
