to Grants Pass and look over the
proposition of a cannery for this place.
So well pleased was he that he is now
here actively assisting in organizing a

figures regarding the business end of
the venture. The result of the efforts
of himself and the members of the
real estate Arm above mentioned is
that the securing of stock subscrip
tions is now being secured. The best
of Buncess is being had and though
canvassing has beia only done the last
few days yet 12250 has been secured to
the stock of the proposed company.
The following business men of Grants
Pass have shown their confidence in
the cannery aa a money making propo
sition both for the stockholders and

OLD SOLDIERS TO CAMP
IN GRANTS PASS
Will Be the Largest Encampment
Ever Held In Oregon Will
Last a Week.
D. A. Cords, owner of the Piue
Needle Factory in this city, writes
to the Courier that his dwelling house
in Sun Francisco was all bat destroyed
by the recent great earthquake in that
city, but the wreck escaped the flames
though all the buildings on the oppo '
site side of the street were burned. !
He aud Mrs. Cords succeeded in get- j
ting to the street with no serious in
jury to themselves, but Mr. Cords
writes fiat it was only through much ,
difficulty aud personal danger was be
able to rescue their dogs. When all
were safe, they took a few of their
things and their dogs aud for two
days and two nights were wauderers
fleeing before the on-rushmg flames to
a place of safety. They are now re
siding at Fruitvale until their home
in San Francisco can be rebuilt.
There promises to be the greatest
gathering of old soldiers at the an
nual encampment that will begin In
this city on ; .Monday, Juue IS, ever
bad in OregonY Of the organizations
taking part in this encampment there
will be toe Graud Army, the Womens
Relief Corps Ladies of the Grand
Army, anl the Southern Oregon Sol
diers and Sailors Association. Alto
gether there is expected to be fully
1000 visitors iu the city to attend tbis
encampmeut which will last for the
week. The Southern Pacific has made
the extraordinary low rate of one fare
for the round trip to Grants Pass and
this will bring many visitors beside
the old soldiers who will embrace the
occasion to visit Rogue River Valley,
of which they have heaid so much.
The eocampment grounds will be
located in the handsome grove that
extends from lower Sixth street across
to Tenth street. A large speakers
platform has been erected and seat
ing provided for the people. The
grove will be made bright at night
with electric lights. Tents for such
as desire to camp will be provided by
the department of Oregon and by the
Southern Oregon Association. Many
though will prefer not to camp and
for these there will be ample accom
modations at the four large hotels in
Grants Pass, together with the score
of lodging houses. Many will also
be kept at private residences and the ,
committee having the caring for the
visitors in charge, desires to secure a
list of alt places that will eit'.er sup
ply beds or meals to the visitors. As
is the rule at encampments free fuel,
straw for bedding aud hot soup and
coffee will be supplied the campers.
There will be public exercises each
day and, eveuicg. A number of the
most prominent men cf Oregon will
make addresses juuoug tlieiu Governor

gram. The Medford Band, which is
able to play high class music, will be
preieut during the entire eucanipmeut
aud the famous fife aud drum corps of
Ashland made up of four old army
musicians will give a martial air to
the cainpj, ,t ". ;
The busiuoss streets of Grauts Pnss
aud the grounds will be artistically
decorated by professionals at that
business. This work will be done by
Mr. aud Mrs. J. S. Dynes of Sm

large quantity of flags, bunting, em
blems, portraits, etc. The business
men of Grants Pass are co-operating
heartily with the local G. A. R. and
W. R. O." In the work of making
every preparation complete that it
may be said that this the first state

heretofore held in Oregon.

ing, at Woodman hall. The ladies
had planned to serve ica cream in
