Es tabrook Co. of San Francisco, who is horo looking after business in con nection with his company, says that though conditions are very quiet in San Francisco at tho present time, tho Panama-Pacific Exposition next year is sure to bo a big success, ev en bigger than if thcK uropoan 'war had not broken out. There are a great many people in the United States who go to Europe for their va cation, who, owing to tho war will be unable to mako the trip next sum mer, and will consequently have to find their entertainment at home. Several foreign countries are ask ing for even larger space for display than they had before. Japan, ns an example, has, aBkcd for double the space, and many others are going to have bigger displays 'than was at first planned. There was talk at one timo of post poning the fair on account of the war, but it has since been learned that it will bo n great syecoss regardless, and preparations tiro going ahead and the fair will open on ochedult time.

I'mwy YMmwph iwhI ISjiimsI II. I,ut. my tuim uji trma I 'art Orfonl WJ tlmhy mi liuaiMW mlnmlntf yiw Haberly Discusses Measures To the Editor of the Recorder: I had hoped some one else would avail themselves of your generous offer of space to discuss some of the amend ments nd measures to bo voted on at the election Nov. 3rd. However, as no one else hns accepted your offer, by your kind permission I will give briefly my reasons for supporting or opposing tho measures I discuss, tak ing a few at a time: Requiring Voters to be Citizens of the Uuted States. , Answer Yes. While this requirement is rather stringent, foreigners cannot intelli gently vote on measures and consti tutional amendments until they have become fully conversant with our sys tem of government, nnd arc fully weaned from their foreign viewpoint or bias. Shall we Have a Lieutenant Governor? Ansewr Yes. Because thee xpenso is not ns much as the cost of the senate wasting time ove the election of a president. Poli tics is eliminated and a succession in caso of disability s provded in the gov ernorship. No' man could be both Secretary of State and Governor, as in the case of the late Mr. Benson, if this nmendment carries. Boundaries of Cities and Counties Coterminous. This amendment not important ex cept to Portland.. Probably should bo answered in the affirmative. Allowing the State to Incur Indebted ness in Excess of $50,000 for CVrain Projects and Purposes. Ansyew No. The title is deceptive and this is only an opening wedge to increase tho state indebtedness for all sorts of political and scctionnl schemes, un der tho plea for better roads, irriga tion and yower plant development. Equal nnd Uniform Taxation. Answer No, on all tax amend ments. . They arb conflicting, immature nnd not carefully worked out by compe tent tax experts. ELECTRIC LIGHT COMPANY PUTTING IN NEW CONDUITS The Randon Power Co. is very busy these days arranging the electric lighting system to comply witli tho improvement along First Street. The conduits for tho wires for the cluster lights have nrrived nnd are being installed, nlso a number of now poles are being put in on the outer edge of the new twelvo foot sidewalk. MAIL SCHEDULE CHANGED ON OCTOBER FIRST The time for tho arrival and de parture of mail changed to tho win ter schedule yesterday, and tho mall now arrives at 12:55 p. m. Tho Coos Ray mail arrives at noon on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, nnd at 0 p. m. on Tuesday, Thursday and Satur day. The down cosat mail arrives at 0 p. in. nnd leaves at 7 a. m. C. A. SMITH PULP MILL STARTS OPERATIONS The pulp mill at tho C. A. Smith plant Mnrtcd this morning on the reg ular run after a week of preparatory work. Ily tomorrow the plunt will be drying pulp. About forty men uro now (iniployt'd und the force will be tuuixmwl un It In ni'filt'i), The colli' I'Uil)' liUJ u wiiltuti to fgrnUli Dm H)i IC JBJtMJflpoj Uy J la t Lor. Southern and Eastern Oregon Nor mal Schools. Answer Yes for-both. -We cannot spend too much to pre pare good teachers for our schools. The tax added will not cost an rdi nary taxpayer over C to 15 cent3 per year. The three normals, one in the southern, one n the central and one in the eastern part of the tsatc are well .located and badly needed. Permitting Incorporated Towns To Surrender Charter by vote of Citizens Answer Yes. Let the people govern themselves in such matters. Now a city cannot do so if it desires to give up ts char ter and merge itself with a larger city.- This bill affects somo suburbs of Portland at the present time. Increasing Pay of Legislators to $5.00 pel1 Day. Answer Yes. The state should not ask its law makers to servo hpr for less thnn liv ing expenses. Members of the legis lature cannot slop at a $1.50 a day house nnd maintain their selT respect. They get only $3.00 a day now and mileage. They really peml more than $3.00 per day tor hotel and oth er necessary expenses, so thac they aro really out of pocket in serving the state. It is not only unfair to them, but,it puts temptation in their way, whlc it practically excludes a poor manfrom seeking the position as he cannot afford it. Roth Eight Hour a Day Laws Answer No. They aro too drastic and far-reaching. If they applied only to mills, factories, logging camps, business houses and pubic woks they would merit support. But they upply uni versally, hence they would destroy farm, dairy and domestic industries Lnnd arrangements, since it would be impossible to carry these on under the proposed law. Besides they arc probably unconstitutional. This is enough for one installment. A. HABERLY. COMMENCE WORK ON NEW STEAM LAUNDRY The Bnndon Steam Laundry Co. has commenced the work of clearing up the rubbish and will start the new building nt once nnd expect to have the machinery installed and ready for operation in about six weeks.

GOOD MUSICAL COMEDY' SHOW AT THE GRAND The Exposition Musical Comedy Co. is coming well recommended from Marshfiold where a four nights en gagement played to packed houses.

BEAUTIFY YOUR LAWN AND MAKE RETTER BANDON A number of lawns in Randon are being platted and seeded this fall and this reminds us that tho fall of the year is just the time to mako a beau tiful lawn n Randon and it is to be hoped that many more of our citizens will get the spirit and .start a new lawn this fall. Nothing adds to tho beauty of n town so much as well kepi lawns and homes. Hundreds of people aro passing through Randon every year looking for a location and if our city wns covered with beautiful lawi; and cozy homes it would make a wonderful impression on the trav elers mid many more of tiiem might lie induced to cast their lots with us. Loti; make Bandon a city of homes first and the other good things will como in their regular turn. Dredge Will Leave Coos Ray.
