Very little ha3 yet been done
towards Beaverton's proposed
street fair this fall. It has been
suggested that some time daring
September would be the better
time to hold the fair. But as
yet there is practically nothing
in hand towards organization to
. gret the matter under way and
the first proposed date will nec
essarily have to bi postponed.
We have learned that the Beav
erton Grange has appointed a
committee to solicit and prepare
an exhibit far the county fair,
' and the grange expects to have
a larger and better display of
agricultural products than it had
last year at the county i fair at
Forest Grore, and you are all
familiar with its prize winning
success then. The idea art first
was to hold the local fair just
ahead of the county fair and se
cure the grange exhibit for our
street enterprise. In that case
our fair cannot be postponed to
a later date than the first days
Oregon school funds by letting
the achool lands get away from
the state for a little or nothing.
For the sake of the poor, home
less and landless let us have a
new deal in disposing of these
lands, one not originated with
the elements that have wasted
our school land in the Dast.

Suit has been brought in Jose
y phine county, through the dis
trict attorney, to oust E. J. Lind
county commissioner, because of
the fact that he is also serving
as county roadmaster. The con
tention is that he cannot hold
two offices at the same time. As
roadmaster Mr. Lind receives
ihe same per: diem $3 to $5 as
he does as commissioner for each
day of actual work performed by
himself. The case will be
watched with interest by several
other Oregon counties that are
doing likewise. .
The politicians are still dis
cussing what to do with the O.

Into the school fund, benefitting
the school fund being always a 1
popular proposition. But i'tj
should be remembered that these
same politicians squandered the J
