SATURDAY. JULY 27. 1912
The next event on the program
for importance will be the county
fair. No pains or efforts should
be spared to make this the big
gest and best fair ever pulled o(T
in Harney county, and if all pull
together there is no reason why
this connot be accomplished. We
should also try to make it espe
cially attractive to every rancher
and stockman in the country,
and for this reason we suggest
that special programs of a varie
ty to suit all be prepared that
will interest the old time ranch
er, cow boy, new farmer and the
school children. Such are under
consideration by the board. It
is intended to have "wild west
stunts" in which the horse men
may take part, a special school
day and Supt Breithaupt's com
munity farm league will also
have a special program arranged
'almost completely" paralyzed be-
' ing able to move but ono arm.
! Later the paralysis has become
1 complete and he is unable to
move his arms or limbs. They
are bringing him in for medical
treatment and the Doctor fears
he has a broken back and may
never recover, although it is
stated he has a bad bruise on the
head which may have caused
temporary paralysis. Mr. Sibley
is a new comer to this section,
having recently settled on land
in Catlow Valley and is a man
about 50 years old.
Fish Eggs Received.
The several thousand fish eggs
promised by State Game Warden
Finley were received yesterday
and today were taken up' near
the R. J. McKinnon place where
they will be placed for hatching.
Allen Forward, an experienced
man, accompanied the shipment
of eggs and will remain here in
charge of the hatchery until such
time as they arc ready to turn
out or local people interested
have been shown how to care for
the young fish.
I Mr. Finley will a little later
send in several dozen pair of
I China pheasants to the Rod and

Wouldn't it be beastly for La
Follette or some other fellow to
step in and take the nomination
of that third party away from
the Colonel. In such a case there
would be more theives and
another party necessary.
You have our sincere sympathy
if you are one of those unfortu
nate beings who believe that
every man is wrong who does
not agree with you.
Choice Farm Lands
Are Restored To Entry
The local land office has re
ceived notice that a large body of
good agricultural land formerly
withdrawn under the second form
of entry under the act of Juno
17th. 1906. to settlement. The
land is situated on Silver Creek
and will be subject to entry after
October 4th, 1912. The descrip
tion of the lands affected follew:

sections 2 to 36, inclusive.

This land is under the Silver
Creek irrigation project and will
be a part of the system when in
stalled, therefore very desirable.
Gun Club which will be cared for
liberated at an opportune
time. Some of these birds will
be liberated at once but about
half will be kept in captivity by
members of the Club until a
more favorable time, perhaps un
til next spring. Several have
stated they would care for a few
pair at their home until it was
thought best to liberate them.
There will also be a shipment
of Bas3 to the Club which will
be turned into the streams of this
county. It is stated these fish
are not hard to ship and as they
are particularly adapted to the
streams of this section it will

Man Dangerously Hurt.

given proper encouragement,
and these arc given a chance.
Governor West says also there
are men . in prison who should
never be allowed out as they are
degenerates and confirmed crimi
nals. There should be n law, he
thinks, to keep such men locked
They have started many ways
of employing convict labor since
he has been in the executive
chair that arc proving a great
saving to the state besides giving
the men employment where they
sharo to a certain extent in the
profits, and this is not placed on
the market in competition with
free labor, but confined entirely
to furnishing state institutions.
They now have tin shops, black
smith shops, a furnituro factory,
make mattresses, etc., which arc
used in the state institutions thus
saving a large amount of money.
In concluding his talk Gover
nor West insisted thnt there was
no politics In the matter; he is
sincere in doing the very best he
can for the people of this state
and is not a candidate for re
election, therefore is not playing
politics. He wants to see the
vast territory in the interior de
velop and will do all in his power
toward it He left Thursday
morning on his horse to resume
his journey, which he is making
at easy stages, and expects to
reach Boise about next Monday.
He will not return on horseback
but as he puts it "both he and
his little mare will ride back home
Governor West was the same
fellow among his friends in
Burns as before hs was elected
and he mingled freely with tho
"boys" on the street nnd at his
hotel while in Burns, showing
his strong hold on their friend
ship and respect by his manner
of greeting and conduct. Ho is
tremendously popular with the
people who admire his straight
forwardness and sincere purpose
of doing right regardless of cri
ticism or what the people think.
The Times-Herald had some
pictures of tho Governor taken
out on the road before ho reach
ed Burns and after his arrival.
When ho called at this office and
saw tho pictures that Mr. Heck
had taken and was told they
were not just what we wanted
he had his saddle animal brought
out nnd posed again nt tho curb
by The Times-Herald building
and we have u fine picture that
will later appear in the papers.
Jim Mahon was also photograph
ed with tho Governor on the
mule which he rode out to meet
him, The Governor also had a
picture of himself and saddle an
imal taken in front of the French
hotel with a thick bank of hop
vines as a background.

sentative of tho Oregon & West

turned from n trip to tho eastern
part of tho Valley nnd says ho

states that tho trees nro Bimply

Mr. Robins also has a big crop of

The Times-Herald was called
by phono from Drewsey this week
nnd informed thnt the people of
Drewsey were going to hold a
rnco meet, political rally and ng
ricultural fair at that place the
week proceeding tho county fair
nt Burns. C. W. Dnnkwatcr
asked for information respecting
tho dates here, outlined what his
little city wanted to do. It is
the purpose to hold this fair just
ahead of tho county fair in order
that the products gathered may
be kept in tact and moyed over.
About $000 will be given in
purses lor races una Jfibo in
premiums for agricultural exhib
its, the latter to bo brought here
and entered under tho usual rules
and taken out with other Harney
county products to tho land shows
and for the exhibition cars of
the railroad. A big political rnly
is also scheduled lor Drewsey
during this week.
The Times-Herald hopes that
all will take an interest in the
coming fairs as we are going to
have competition when our pro
ducts nro sent out Both Crook
nnd Malheur counties nro gath

and we should not be outclassed
when we havo tho products to

assist in gathering these exhibits
as will also tho Commercial Club
and tho Colonization Co. All
that the farmer is asked to do is
to Havo his best products for this
purpose and let those who are in
the field know of them and as
sist in getting them to the fair
grounds in proper shape. Tho
expense of getting these exhib

A fire alarm was turned in
Wednesday morning nbout 10:30
and tho fire boys responded
promptly but whon It was dis
covered where it was they found
their equipment of no avail. A
small woodshed at tho McGce re
sidence in Morrison's addition
where Mr. Chezem lives caught
fire and burned down. It caught
from a fire in somo trash that
Mr. Chezem was burning. This
is a reminder that wo need better
fire protection. Tho apparatus
is of littlo avail at any distance
from tho cisterns on main street
and should some of tho hand-
Bomo and expensive residences

is almost suro they would bo de

This is another evidence of tho
need of provision being made for
