SATURDAY. MAY 10. 1111
The meetinp; at the Masonic
hali last night for the purpose of
reorganizing the Commercial flub
was quite well attended and those
present showed a disposition t
help make the organization a !
good live one that will accom-
plish much toward advancing the ,
interests of Burns and Harney
J. J. Donegan was elected pre
sident; Ben Brown, vice presi
dent; J. E. Loggan, secretary;
Geo. Fry, treasurer. 6. VV.
Young, C. F. McKinney and J,
M. Dalton were elected as mem
bers of the executive committee
to serve with the president and
The president appointed 1 Sch
wartz, J. L. Gault, J. C. Welcome
Jr., A. W. Gowan and Julian
Byrd a finance committee.
Several gave good talks that
brought out the necessity of or
ganization and since all realize
this an important time for the
business interests of Hums to
accomplish some good there is no
doubt of the business men com
ing to the support of the club so
long as it works along conserva
tive lines and really works to the
beat interest of the community in
a broad way. Among those who
made good talks were J. W. A.
Myers of West Point, Ky., who
is here looking for a location.
He put forward the necessity of
organization, as did also P. J.
Gallagher, Dr. Standard, Frank
Davey and others.
I. Schwartz suggested that the
club take up the proposition of a
big 4th of July celebration and
acting upon this suggestion the
chair appointed J. M. Dalton,
Dell Dibble and Geo. Fry a com
mittee to see what funds could be
raised and the sentiment of the
business men toward such a cele
bration and they are to report to
the club next Tuesday evening.
The horsemen have already made
preparations for races and it was
reported the base ball boys ex
pect to have an outside team here
to play ball.
The secretary reported having
received a letter stating that
President Farrell of the O. W. R.
& N. Co., would visit this section
in the near future and the club
will make preparations to have
the gentleman meet with the
business men of Burns. The
real motive that prompted the
reorganization of the club at
this time and the desire to put it
in good working order was the
railroad situation. JJurns is go
ing to have a railroad to the town
at the earliest possible moment
and it is therefore going to be M
organized that the business in
terests will be in readiness to
take up the proposition as soon
an it can be ascertained what the
railroad people are going to do.
This is a matter of vital impor
tance, therefore the people of
Burns are going to be found "on
the job" at any time.
The club will hold another
meeting next Tuesday evening
at the Masonic hall at which
time definite policies will be out
lined and the several committees
will take up with the executive
board such matters as will be
moat urgent and important.
James D. Fellows, who with
others started a project on Emi
grant Creek some time ago to
furnish power for electric lights
for Burns, arrived here Thurs-
'toy evening. He has come to
begin operations on tho project
in tho immediate future. He
will return to Portland in a few
days after a visit to the power
site to ascertain what is neces
sary to get to work, and place
such data and information before
his associates in Portland, then
he will return to take up the work
proper. This undertaking has
been delayed from one cause or
ant her for some time
I'ellows states that all obstacles
have been removed and the plant
wjj be jnataiied without delav as
j hag tne nece8sary capital to
There is some talk of another
K)wer line being put in from the
Malheur and it is possible that
the two projects may be merged
and only one line put into Burns
as the field will not justify com
peting lines. This, however, is
merely speculative so far as The j
Times-Herald knows. It is never-
theless gratifying to learn thut !
we are to have service as we
have been without lights for a
long period and the people of this
city will welcome a change.

County court has been in ses
sion since last Wednesday but
little has been accomplished in
the way of making news. While
the judge and commissioners
have been busy, much time has
been devoted to the high school
and boundary boards.
A remonstrance was filed
against the petition of Geo. At-
well for a license in l.awen pre
cinct and the court refused to
issue the license.
Reports of the road masters
were received and accepted.
The petitions of Frank Thomp
son, Thos, Main, ("has. Hooks, I).
V. Wilfong. Goo. Knycraft and
W. K. Myram. each with several
others asking for coi nly roads
wore favorably fteti d upon and
tho several roads ordered viewed.
Today tho court is working on
mailers pertaining to the exten
sion work of the agricultural
college which a law passed by
the last legislature made possi
ble and it II desired that Harney
county take advantage of its pro
visions. There is also an amount
of business in settling claims in
connection with the recent term
of circuit court therefore it is
not likely the court wril adjourn
before the fore part of next

More Game Birds if
We Want Them.
( Seme Warden Mace received a
letter from the office of the State
Game Warden yesterday stating
they bad a number of young game
birds at the State Farm that will
soon be ready for distribution in
in localities where people would
take an interest in their protec
tion and caro. Those include
China, Roves. Golden and Silver
pheasants which will bo shipped
when five weeks old together
with the hen mother in coops.
They must be cared for until
large enough to liberate then the
coop and motlu r hen are to be
returned to the farm. These
shipments are made entirely at
the expense of the state and all
we have to do is secure proper
care of the birds until they are
liberated and return tho old hen
Tne Times Herald understands
from this letter that these birds
mav be liberated any place in
the country and are not restrict-
tHj to a certain territory as those j
shipped in last summer. The
Ann club will take the matter up
with farmers who will co-Operate' evening from Brookings
iUK M ,lubt several coops may i h, had met W. G. Wober

one interestetl should address

Horse Racing July 4.
Jack Johnson, the horse trainer
at the fair grounds, has taken
up the proposition of some races
here on July 4 and 6 and has re
ceived sufficient encouragement
to assure a good meet with ample
purses to attract horses. There
will be harness and running races
for both days and of course this
will include some saddle horse
races for the boys in this county
who have some good saddle ani
mals. The program will be out
shortly, just as soon as arrange
ments are completed.
The Rotl A- Gun Club will also
have some .sport during that time
which will he an additional at
traction toward celebrating. The
i 'lnii plans to have some trap
shooting but whether it will be
confined to local shots or an in
vitation extended to some out
side club to visit us has not been
W. II. KobiiiH, who was in
town this week, told some of the
Gun Club members that the peo
ple of his neighborhood contem
plate a picnic during the summer
and he hoped it could be arrang
ed on dates that would permit
the Club coming over with the
traps and have some sport. His
suggestion met with hearty ap
proval at a meeting of the Club
held Thursday evening.
