his objections to the erection of
a new court house from an eco
nomical standpoint He is an
economical man. For instance
he had to borrow a copy of The
Times-Herald to get the infor
mation he needed to write his
communication, but that is of
little consequence. He is the
kind of man who doesn't believe
in paying out a cent that can be
avoided ; anything that can be got
ten along with as a make shift will
do rather than pay for something
that would really be a benefit.
He is the character of citizen
who objects to the local news
paper advocating the settlement
and cultivation of this big coun
try; the promotion of irrigation
systems, or any such develop
ment He is of the kind who
doesn't believe this country is
suited to agriculture.
The Times-Herald sees no par
ticular reason for congratulating
the Burns Commercial Club any
more than every other citizen of
Harney county over the action of
the court in determining to build
a court house. Mr. Otley thinks
the present court house is good
enough and he is honest, but he
doesn't know. He doesn't take
into consideration the importance
of a safe place for the records
and The Times-Herald is confi
dent he is not familiar with the
condition of the present building.
Mr. Otley seems to question the
wisdom of buying modern road
machinery which shows he is not
abreast of the times. He also
seems to have the impression that
the experiment station was es
tablished for the benefit of Burns
rather than the farmers of Har
ney county.
It is foolishness to suggest that
men of the character who com
pose the county court could be
influenced by selfish motives.
They are men of mature judg
ment who have carefully consid
ered the matter and who know
that the building of a court house
is the proper step that is to the
best interests of the county
otherwise the step would not
have been taken.
likely find what he wants before
leaving Oregon. The success of
any given territory in just ratio
necessarily reflects its prosperity
on every adjacent one and our
problem today is a realization of
that theory and the establish
ment of ways and means to ob
tain a practical application of it
Owing to the intense immigra
tion rivalry existing in all unde
veloped portions of the United
States, community building is
not a theory but a well defined
business principle in which every
dollar expended will return ten
fold if ordinary business judg
ment is exercised in the expend
itures. Development of any re
sources means increased business
along nearly every line and we
can "go forward or backward in
direct ratio to the amount of en
ergy expended. We have come
to the point where we must go
forward in rapid strides and a
sane campaign along immigra
tion and industrial lines will pro
duce great results but we can ex
pect nothing except permanently
beneficial through cooperation.

On community cooperation
more than all else rests the suc
cessful colonization and develop
ment of this vast Central Oregon
empire. A spirit of unity, sup
plemented by a firm belief in the
country's possibilities and per
sonal effort if prudently exer
cised will people our outlying
agricultural districts, build man
facturing plants and in every
known way enhance valuations
and develop territory whether it
be municipal or rural. An object
lesson of striking significance
may be found in tying a bundle
of sticks together. To break
them while united would require
a giants strength, but when sep-
eratcd they could be broken
without effort and cast aside.
The various communities of
Central Oregon may be charact
erized as the bundle of slicks.
Bound together by bands of de
termination, aggressivness and
unselfishness these can makelands
that are now unpeople, and there

Hon. I. S. Geer, who in com
pany with his wife and son,
Waldo, left here about three
weeks ago for a trip to Portland
and Western Oregon points, ar
rived home Thursday morning
after a very strenuous trip in on
the auto from Bend. '
Mr. Geer carried a message
from the business men of Burns
to Carl Gray, president of the
Hill railroad lines of the North
west, and reports he was most
graciously received by the rail
road man, who expressed his
pleasure at receiving the assur
ance of good will and support of
the citizens of this section.
Mr. Gray did not give Mr. Geer
any definite information as to
when the Hill system would ex
tend into Harney Valley but as
sured him that this was in their
plans and when it was ready to
extend the work would be prose
cuted with least possible delay.
Mr. Geer states the mild wea

roads very soft and therefore

county officials insist in foisting
n new court house on the people
against their wishes, it would bo
a good opportunity to try these
laws. If the people of Burns
want a court house so bad let
them go down in their pockets
and build one themselves, in
stead of trying to tax the rest of
the people in the county, who
are well satisfied with the pres

I also agree with Dr. Denman
that ninety per cent, of voters
of Harney county, outside of
Burns, are opposed to building a
new court house, as they are in
this vicinity. It would be a good
thing if mass meetings were held

The meeting of the Harney
Nalley Rod and Gun Club Wed
nesday evening at The Times
Herald office was well attended
and the organization is meeting
with general success and approv
al. It has surpassed the antici
pation of thoso-wlio were instru
mental in starting the organiza
tion and promises to be the foun
dation and promises to be the
founda for a strong club that
will include in its membership
people all over the country and
be a benoficial factor in the pre
servation of our game as well as
providing sport for its members.
At the last meeting it was de
cided to dispense with the dues
provided for at the first meeting
and charged a membership fee
of $1.00 only. Such expenses as
may be incurred by transporting
new game birds or fish to restock
our streams will be taken care of
by assessments levied upon the
members from time to time as
occasion demands. Later.should
the club grow and feel disposed
to lease game preserves, build a
club house and extend its work
along those lines it may provide
for such by a stock company.
The membership now numbers
over 70 and includes men from
all around. Narrows, Sunset,
Lawen and other sections of the
county are represented in the
membership and the roster is
still open. It is confidently ex
pected the membership will run
into the hundreds as soon as peo
ple are given an opportunity to
sign the roll.
The rabbit hunt scheduled for
Wednesday promises to be good
sport. It has not been postponed
as was suggested by some but
will take place. Another meet

ing at The Times-Herald office at
7 o'clock sharp to complete ar
rangements for the competitive
hunt for Valentine's Day. The
meeting is called early as as to
interfere with any other engage
ment for Tuesday evening and
all interested are cordially invited
to be present promptly t 7
o'clock. No business will be tak
en up other than completing ar
rangements for the hunt and the
"rabbit" supper as the Burns to
be paid for by the losing side
Dr. L. E. Hibbard and James
Smith have been chosen captains
for this hunt and they will choose
their men at this meeting and
give final instructions respecting
the territory to be covered and

Please remember this organi
