Tho Times-Herald believes in
nrood roads and hopes Judge
Webster will receive tho nctivo
support in this county his efforts
deserve. Nothinir is of more
importance to this great nnd
growing country than permanent
roads. Let us all push this mat
ter and insist on Betting proper
Senator Bourne hns decided
not to press the passage of his
new homestcaJ bill where the
basis of proof would bo produc
tion rather than residence. Ho
says there is objection as it
would favor the rich.
GOOD ROADS MEGTINQ.
Judge L. R. Webster is hero
from Portland and will ho'd a
good roads meeting at the court
liouso this evening at which time
it is the intention to organize a
branch of the good roads move
ment and start immediate work
toward better highways.
Judge Webster has resigned as
judge of Multnomah county and
will devote his time to this most
worthy cause. Ho is thoroughly
familiar with thesubject and has
hurt nmp.tic.il oxnorience while1
ho was county judge, therefore tho business associates and inti
his hearers may expect some 'mate friends of Oregon's great
good, sound information upon
road building tonight.
The building permanent high
ways has been made n science
and is no longer looked upon as
an expense but as an investment
The farmer and business rm:n
realize the necessity of such a
moye and Judge Webster will
certainly meet with enthusiastic
support in this movement in
Harney county. Our past exper
ience in roau ouumng nas ueen
fy .., w.
such that we are ready to begin
Judge Webster has some good,
practical ideas along the line of
road building that appeals to all
nublic snirited and nrofrressive
citizens and we urge all who can
to be present this evening.
The men to take the census in
Harney County have been named,
or at least a part of them have
received their dommiisions and
given their territory. Those
nomed are: W. Y. King, Frank
P. Gowan, M. L. Lewis, Robt
Davey and Leslie Holliday of
Burns; E. J. Catlow, of Denio;
C. W. Loggan, of Harney.
Mr. King has Burns and Poi
son Creek precincts as his dis-
trict and Mr. Davey, Island,
Lake and Saddle Butte precincts.
We have not learned the territory
assigned the others named.
It would appear that there
should be more enumerators in
this county. The population is
not great but the distances are
and if the work must be done
within a certain time some hus
tling must be done.

JUDQB WILLIAMS DEAD.
Judge Geo. II. Williams, one
of tho most prominent men of
Oregon, died at his homo In
Portland last Monday morning.
Of his death tho Oregonian says:
With the snmo serenity thnt
had marked tho latter years of
his long nnd useful life, Judge
Gcorgo H. Williams early yester
day morning passed to tho Great
Sunday night, Oregon's Grand
Old Man had retired at tho usual
hour after a quiet day spent in
good health and spirits. At the
rising hour tho empty tenement
of clay was found reclining as he
had gone to sleep, the fnco as
placid as that of n slumbering
child. Thero was no cvulonco of
a struggle as tho spirit left tho
body, no indication that there
had been tho slightest degrco of
suffering. Judge Williams had
died in the manner ho hnd often
wished by "simply slipping

Mcmber of tho United States,
Attorney-General of tho United
States, Chief Justice of Oregon's
Supreme Court, member of the
Alabama Claims Commission,
Mayor of Portland these and
other honorable posts were held
by Judge Williams in the course
of his long life.
Last month Judge Williams at
tended two banquets, at both of
which he was a guest of honor.
On March 17 the Multnomah Bar
Association tendered a banquet
to Judge Williams and tho mem
bers of the Supreme Court At
this banquet the aged jurist re
sponded to the toast "The Nestor
;of the 0regon BarM
On March 2G, in honor of his
87th birthday, a banquet was
given at the Portland Hotel un
der the auspices of the Young
Men's Republican Club. Here,
as at the previous banquet, Judge
Williams spoke. Hero ho deliv
ered his last address in public.
It was in this address that Judge
Williams spoke so eloquently
of his declining days. There he
expressed tho calm content with
which he looked forward to tho
final day so much nearer than
those who listened thought.

REOARDINQ UVH STOCL MARKGT.
Tho following was published
in tho Inst issuo of tho Rural
Spirit nnd was contributed
"Tho stock yard problem
