Klamath Falls wanted the next
meeting but gracefully gave way
to Lakeview where the next meet
ing will be held. The best of
feeling prevailed throughout ajid
everything was harmonious. The
(only regret is the shortness of tbje
visit made necessary by the cele
bration at Bend. The people of
Burns feel very kindly toward
Bend and although we regret
that the many visitors could not
see the fine display of products in
the navilion and some of our fine
stock we wish them to know that
we feel honored by their coming
and the short stay is their loss,

big meeting was the banquet

Thompson, of Lakewiew; Frank
Davey; Dr. Coe, of Bend; Wm.
Hanley, C. C. Chapman. These
were good every one of them.
Mr. Snelling is a diamond in the
rough and was a great surprise
in his wit. The eloquence of Mr.
Williams was certainly appreciat
ed. The earnest talk of Mr.
McMurray, his splendid tribute
to the work of the Development
League and his message from
Portland business men who were
not able to come were highly
pleasing to the home people. Th'e
invitation of Dr. Coe to come
to Bend for the railroad celebra
tion also pleased and we only re
gret that more of our people
could not avail themselvesif the

Mr. Chapman's tribute to the
silent workers and his sincere
expressions of appreciation of
the hospitality of Burns repaid
all the trouble our good people

providing for our guests.

about it for Burns has made
good beyond a doubt. Jt was a
success" that's all.
Now, help make the fair go.
