Representative Brooke has in
troduced a bill to change the
salaries of officers in Harney
county, we'd like to know what
officers are to be benefited.
Congress has voted in favor of
San Francisco and against New
Orleans as the city in which an
exposition to celebrate the open
ing of the Panma canal in 1915
shall be held. This is gratifying
to the West as the Pacific coast
is the proper place for such a
last issue of The Times-Herald
stilting that homesteaders may
assign a portion of entries within
reclamation nroiccts. nnnlios only
to government projects. The
article was published m a Boise
nanor without any nualificd am
plication and as Tho Times-Her
ald had suggested such a privi
lege be granted under any recla
mation project, it took it for
granted this applied. Wo havo
been put right in this matter
after consulting Register Farrc
of the local land office and hasten
to make the facts known to our
leaders. While this gives relief
to some people it doesn't go far
enough as homesteaders under
private reclamation projects are
just as deserving of consideration.
RAIJIJIT DRIVES A SUCCESS.
The winter has boon ideal for
fall sown grain so far. The
ground has been covered with
snow every since freezing
weather began thus protecting
the grain. With the vast amount
of moisture stored in the soil from
late rains we may expect good
crops the coming season.
The Times-Herald has nothing
to add to its railroad news of
last week. The announcement
that sufficient rails have been
purchased to lay the track of the
N. C. & 0. road through this
section north to Pendleton, has
been verified by the Engineering
world, an eastern railroad paper.
This in connection with other
encouraging news published last
issue indicates that we will have
railroads from almost every
direction at no distant day.
It seems strange to tho inno
cent and unsuspecting people of
this interior section why there
should bo opposition to the pro
posed good roads laws in the leg
islature. We want good roads.
It is possible the proposition of
working convicts on the roads
would not be practical, especially
out this distance from the peni
tentiary; it may bo also, that
Borne of the bills contain "jokers"
and that someone will make
money out of the good roads
movement, yet if they give us
value received what's the odds'
It looks like there is more wrong
with tho legislature than with
the proposed bills.
The clipping published in tho
The rabbit drives of last Satur
day and Sunday were a success
and a large number were killed.
It has been stated by some attend
ing that ouite a few escaped
owing to lack of organization of
those participating, but this is to
be expected as the first attempts
are more or less experimental.
The Times-Herald is informed
there will be other drives today
and tomorrow m tho same terri
tory, the wings of fence being in
the vicinity of tho John Jones
place and the drives from tho
Korten place in that direction.
Grant Reynolds has a schemo
that will help materially in ex
terminating these pests: Mr.
Revnolds and Dave Miller tried
poison with good results. They
took a quantity of stnchnme to
which they added sugar, making
a rather thick syrup. This they
placed on some hay and scattered
in places where stock could not
get to it. They counted 5a dead
rabbits tho next morning and no
doubt as many more wero poison
ed and moved away from tho
immediate vicinity before dying.
This should bo practiced by all
who can use the poison conven
It seems that at intervals of
several years the rabbits become
thick throughout this western
country and are a monaco for a
season or two when their number
is again cut down in ono way or
another. When wo secure rail
roads and people on every quar
ter section of the land tho rabbit
pest will bo a thing of tho past,
as will also be the coyoto that
now troubles the flocks of sheep.
All this will como about within
a reasonablo time, but in tho
I meantime wo must do tho best
we can aim gut im ui mum.
Wo bono to havo a good season
for crops tho coming year and
the rabbits will causo considera
ble damago unless wo oxtorml

season of tho year when condi

HIE MRST NATIONAL nANK
The stockholders of tho First
National Bank of this city hold
their annual meeting last Satur
day, electing the former board of
directors, who afterward re
elected the executive offiuess for
the insuing year as follews:
John D. Daly, president; C. A.
Haines, vice-president; J. L.
Gault. cashier; and A. C. Wel
come assistant cashier.
Tho first consideration of tho
stockholders of this bank has al
ways been in the interest of
safety to its depositors and the
funds committed to its charge.
Following their past policy of
strengthening their institution,
the board of directors voted to
transfer $5,000.00 to tho surplus
fund, thus increasing Bame from
$15,000.00 to $50,000.00. which
surplus, in conjunction with the
bank's Capital of $25,000.00,
gives the bank a combined Capi
tal nnd Surplus, or working capi
ta! of $75,000.00.
The bank's advertisment this
week is worthy of special note
as invites business upon an un
usually strong basis, and upon
the forceful statement that every
dollar of its capital is reinforced
by two dollars of surplus, thus
affording its depositors an un
usual degree of safety. Such a
showing has been made possible
only through tho safe, conserva
tive policy which tho bank has
so closely adhered to throughout
its entire history.
