Are Urged to Attend
v Secretary J. T. Hinckle, of the
AOregon Irrigation Congress, is
a Appealing to all parts of the state
ru.or a big attendance at the an-
ynual meeting. January 9-11.
Every man who is appreciative
of the need for careful study of
irrigation progress, is urged to
; invite his friends who are also
interested. By getting together
the largest possible body of
, students and workers, the officers
of the Congress hope to gain the
maximum of education.
1 It is apparent to all students of
industrial problems in the state
that irrigation has reached a
i crisis. There must be some
change or improvement in the
i. .existing order. Good land must
Fbe placed within reach of the
kvorage farmer at a lower charge.
In yiew of the fact that the Carey
Act plan of reclamation has large
ly proven a failure, and that the
Federal operations are of neces
sity limited, it is clear that some
effective me' 1 of enlisting
private capital, or drawing into
( the work the credit of the state,
must be provided.
In putting at the forefront the
' work being done by the farmers
of the state, through bonding of
districts or as co-operative as-
. Bociations, it is the purpose of
The Times-Herald has received
a notice from H. G. Wilson, of
Roseburg that bids will be receiv
ed for seven tracts of land, each
containing 160 acres of the lands
allotod to the Indians in this val
ley up until Feb. 18, 1913. It
had been hoped a larger amount
of this land could be secured and
placed on the market at this time
but in the nbsencc of Dr. Mars
den it was impossible to get the
Indians to understand and more
Of the land Will thprofnrn hn
placed on the market later. Six
of the tracts have been appraised
at to per acre, the other at $10.
This appraisement is verv con-
servative and the lands will no
doubt bo sold at that figure very
readiiy if not for more.
The following conditions govern
according to the notice received:
All bids should be enclosed in
a sealed envelope which must bo
conspicaously marked "Bids for
Indian Lands." The date of the
proposed sale must also be writ
thereon, but nothine else. Mn
bidder will be permitted to in
clude more than one allotment in
any bid. If a prosDective nur-
chaser desires to bid on m.m
than one allotment ho must make
a separate bid for each allotment
which he desires to nurchn.se.
and if lie wishes to purchase less
lhan an entire allotment ho mav
submit a bid for one or more lotrnl
subdivisions or any part thereof.
Each bid must be accompanied
by a duly certified check on snmn
solvent bank payable to Homen
G. Wilson, Sunt. Roseburg. Ore

w percent of the amount offered.
as a guarantee for the faithful
performance by the bidder of his
nroponal. If the' bid should bo
accepted and the successful bid
der shall within thirty days after
due notice fail to comply with the
terms of his bid, the money re
presented by such check shall be
forfeited for the use of the owner
of the land. The checks of all un
successful bidders will be return
ed within 10 days after the open
ing of the bids: any other infor
mation governing sales will be
sent on application. Purchaser
shall pay the cost of conveyance
and from $1.50 to $2.50 for ad
vertising. No bid for an amount
less than the appraised valuation
will bo considered.
Owing to the splendid satisfac
tion given at their d uico with
thu band music, and numerous
and urgent requests for a repeti
tion of the same, the manage
ment of the band has decided to
please the public in this rcjnecl
and will give a masquerade and
grand ball at Tonawama hall, on
Friday night. .Inn. 21th. which
promises to bo n vory enjoyable
nllair. The band will furnish
the dance music until 1 o'clock,
which should prove a drawing
card to everyone, as well as give
those desiring to listen to the
band, an opportunity to have
their wishes gratified.
The members of tho band trust
their efforts to please the public
will not be in vain, and hope to
be accorded a packed house on
this occasion. Their former con
cert and dance wns neither one
as well attended or patronized as
they should have been, and if
tho public's sentiment 1b to
judged, by the manner in which
they support these undertakings,
the band feels their eiforts to
raise finances for their mainten
ance must fail, and as theso do
ings are tho only means at hand
whereby they can raise revenue
during the winter, it stands the
public in hand to show their good
will and support them whenever
the opportunity presents itself.
otherwise there is but the cnevit-
able result, the disbandment of
the organization. It has been
freely predicted by many that
Burns has at present tho best
band it ever had. and that the
music handled of a better grade,
but on tho other hand its wns re
ceiving the ioo rest support of
any organization of its ability
they had ever seen. This should
not be, but it's a fact novel t he
less, and this is very evident to
its members. Outside of the
hall rent, lights and fuel donated
by the Tonawama management.
not a citizen or business corcern
in town has made any effort to
help it along, and there you arc
how does it look. Every man,
woman and child has reason to
feel proud of this home organiza
tion, and ought to show it.
