FR'DAY, OCTOBER 11, 1907.
Many people from all parts of the
county took advantage of the fins
weather and came in Saturday to do
sods trading, with the natural re
sults that local dealers had a very
big day of It.
"It's payroll that counts," is
Grants Pais', slogan and it is proving
to be a mighty good one, too. And
now that ;ws have a chance to hare
another payroll, by establishing a
factory for the evaporator designed by
fir. Coleman, 1st as not miss such an
excellent opportunity. This it a mat
ter in which every publlo spirited
citizen should take much interest.
Z The slaying of Ex-sheriff Drown, at
Baker City dors not reflect any
credit opon our state. Indeed, if all
reports be true, it wonld seem as
though they were having a reign
of terror over in the eastern part of
the commonwealth. What we really
need, all 'over this big state, is a
reign of law. Only when our people
respect and oliey the law, can we ex
pect to have the ideal conditions
which are, so greatly to be desired

have' good rowls all in-cr the county.
Now that the fruits an.l grains have

find that our valley lins been bouuti
fuly blessed in then material things
and that the grower I at every miaou

when our nmikcts fer earing for all
such products are much improved,
they will then have much greali r
cause for l!iHiik-mniig. I'.nt all those
things will come in tune and the
As the cold, winter season of the
eastern states approaches, wa may ex
pect to see many newcomers wending
their way hither. If they only knew
just what they are missing, there
wonld be a great influx of those peo
ple into this great and growing valley.
They are coming and those who
oome always bring others, for they
are so well pleased with conditions as
they find them here that they cannot
refrain from writing back home and
telling their old time friends and
ueighbors about some of the geod
things they are enjoying out this way.
"There's something doing" among
the aspirants to succeed Postmaster
C. E. Harmon as that official's second
term expires November 17th and it is
expected that someone will be choren
to fill the place, aa Mr. Harmon will
retire and .look "after 'his extensive
ranch and other interests.

thoogh the "knowing ones" say that
The Commissioner of the General
Land Office has issued an order wbieh
requires the registers and receivers of
all United Btates land offices to pre
pare all applications to mske entries
and filings on publio lands when they
are requested to do so by the appli
cants. This order will insure greater
accuracy in papers of this kind, and
be a ssving to the applicants who
have heretofore been required to bave

Big Demand for Sampson's Spray
While the price of the 8am peon's pray
hist season was very moderate, there
will be a "substantial reduction here
after because of the purchase of the
Ingredients In large bulk. The open
ing order this season of the Canning
Company for the making of this spray
is HO tons of lime and 60 tons of sul
phur, and the reduced cost realised by
these large purchases will tie i applied
in the reduction of the price of the
spray to customers. Call at the can
nery and talk to Manager Sampson,
lis will be only too glad to explain the
whole buslneas to you. If it Is not
convenient to call . then writs to him
for prices and such other information
as you may desire. The making of the
Hampson spray will commence Novem
ber 1st, and continue through the
winter as long as there is any demand.

original copy of which may be seen at
the Cannery :
We, the undersigned, hereby certify
that we used Sampson Lime and Sul

they know who ia going to be the
fortunate individual. There are
several persons mentioned as being
"in line" for the important position,
should the political lightning happen
to strike their way. Among those
most prominently'mentioned are: W.
A. Newell, J. W. Moore, O. W. Don
nell, H. W. White, Lincoln Savage
and J. E. x Peterson. There may be
"others", but if so they are keeping
very much in the dark as to their
The friends of Mr. Newell are
quite sanguine, basing their hopes
pureIy"upon bis fitness for the place.
They tell of his 13 years as a faith
ful and efficient railway mail clerk
and how, for the past two years he
has been doing good service in the
Grants Pass post office. They also
point to the fact that President
Roosevelt seems determined that,
other things being equal, the man
who has been faithful, should be
prometed. So, they are feeling pretty
good over Mr. Newell 's prospects for
knocking the coveted plum. j
Mr. Moore's friends also show how
he put in several years in the postal
service and they aver that he is a very
capable man for the place. They
think that he has a mighty good
showing to capture the position and
that bis prospects are growing better
Mr. Donnell, although at present
holding an important office with the
Medford railroad which runs out as far
as Eagle Point, still holds his resi
dence in Grants Pass, where he has
done some effective political work and
where he has many friends who are
pulling for him with all their power.
They are feeling good over his ex
