A. 0. Hunter of Bend made an
excellent talk on oc-operation.
Mr. Hunter is one of the most
energetic and practical boosters
in the interior and his ndvice
alone? these lines is always sound.
He emphasized the importance
of the entire interior working in
harmony, standing together with
the railroads, the government
and every interest having for its
purpose tho upbuilding of Cen
tral Oregon. Mr. Hunter pro
posed a resolution to be adopted
by tho League to call an irriga
tion convention having for its
purpose placing tho Cary Act
companies on a business basis in
order to be a real benefit to the
state. As they are now it is a
farco and a detriment.
Miss Louol Smith sang a solo
and responded to a hearty en
core. Judge Worden of Klamath sug
gested that all the counties com
nosinir the Central Oregon De
velopment League go together
and get out a general booklet of

West who was unable to be pres
ent. Mr. Rinehart gave a good
talk that was thoroughly appre
ciated. He said We needed to
get busy on good roads and sug
gested "Peg Leg Dutch" people
herc'to get best results people
who were not afraid to work.
Phil Bates was on the program
for a good roads talk but tho ma
chine was "putout of business by
Rinehnrt's talk" as Bates put it,
ho was unable to give his illus
trated lecture. It was given
Tuesday evening at tho U'o
theater between and 7 o clock.
Tho particular feature of this
Tuesday's session was tho pledg
ing of sufficient support to assure
tho establishment of experiment

At tho noon luncheon a most
enjoyable and profitable hour was
spent. Tho secretaries of tho
various committccsspokeof their
experienco in handling corres
pondence, reaching intending in
vestors and results. Among tho
speakers were Mr. Oliver of
Klamath, Mr. Rice of Lakevicw,
Mayor Jones of Redmond, T. M.
Baldwin of Prineville. Mr. Mc
Murray of tho Harriman railroad
system made one of the most tell
ing talks when called upon at
luncheon. He is completely car
ried away with this big country
and said ho wanted to spend two
or three weeks here. "No hook'',
magazines, newspapers or anv
other mode of advertising can
tell about this magnificient coun
try," said Mr. McMurray. I?
pledged the system ho represents
to the support of Central Oregon.
Every means of publicity tho.v
have is to be focused on this sec
tion. They arc ready. He re
grets the apparent lack of inter
est in tho communities where in
quiries are received. A general
letter to be sent out in response
to these inquiries "don't go"
with him. Every letter should
have personal attention and fol
lowed up if necessary.
Mr. Johnson, chairman of the
executive committee of the Port
land Commercial Club assured us
of the deep interest that city has
in tho development of this sec
tion. "Portland stands for tho
upbuilding of all Oregon" said

Tho boosters turned school lu, s
for a timo yesterday afternoon
when they joined tho procession
of tho public school at Schwartz's
corner and gallantly marched
down main street, apparantly as
hnppy as a boy with his first pair
of red toil boots, they continued
iho march following tho childron
in a circular counter march around
tho band. Thero again tho boost

W. Lair Thompson followed
with a telling talk on "Legisla

His speech was a scorcher and

grit, patriotism and good snsc.
He advocated approved publicity
telling the truths about our coun

and trial of the Agricultural Col

Tho crowning feature of this
big meeting was the banquet
tendered at Lochor's hall last
evening under the skillful man
agement of the ladies of Burns.
Nothing was left undone that

reach of our little city. All the
available space was filled with
tables and our ladies served well.

From the Tuesday Evening Daily
This is Get-Together-Day in
Oregon. The red blood of Kla-
math, Lakeview, of Portland has
come to meet the red blood of
Bunns, of Harney county, and;
joining forces, has formulated
the most practical development
plan ever known to Oregon.
The day has produced pledges
of the people, of the Hill and
Harriman railroad systems, to
raise money enough for establish
ing two Central Oregon experi
ment stations and to maintain
them until the state recognizes
its obligation to perform this tre
mendous service by a sufficient
legislative appropriation to meet
the demand for soil education for
Harmnnv notes have been
ringing out like joy bells. A.
knell has sounded for petty!
sectional jealousies. The spirit
underlying all expressions is that
no person or community ha3 any
right to criticise any other per
son or community unless the sin
cere intention is to make it bet
ter for all.
What do we of Portland think
We think it the potential city
of a great agricultural communi
ty to be. The hospitality, the
energy, the hope of Harney's

interests of the outside world
will unfailingly soon be followed

The fruits are of the first order,

capable of making one's mouth

is of par excellence in quality.
This is a newly settled section

been made in the fruit line and
the melons and other fruit ex

the venture. However, this sec
tion seems especially adapted for
grain, the grains shown arc of
good quality and abundant yield.
The grass exhibit of James H.

his alfalfa, bromos, rye, wheat
and native grasses are worthy of
the greatest consideration.
Walk down the west side of the
