Morrow County Ku Klux Klan
Monday night the Morrow coun
ty Ku Klux Klan's assembled at
Lexington to hold a publicparade
and installation of officers. There
were Klan's from Condon, Pen
dleton, Heppner, lone and other
sections present, besides several
hundred spectators who journey
ed there to see the parade and
hooded members. The lodge is
known as Morrow Klan No. 33,
and received its charter from the
Imperial Wizard of Atlanta, Ga.
The parade marched from the
hall to the high school athletic
field, where a tiry cross was blaz
ing, around which the members
mrrched singing "America." In
the new gymnasium of the high
school the services of the evening
were conducted. Ninety-eight
persons were in the parade and
some half-dozen women, several
marchers being unmasked. The
audience at the lecture is placed
at 500, and was delivered by Rev.
Cookineham, a Presbyterian min
ister of Pendleton, and was given
close attention. Then followed
th initation of 14 candidates and
the installation of officers, four
of the head officers being lone
people including th? Cyclops.
It was an orderly and peaceable
gathering and the lecture and
other ceremonies were generally
well received. Practically the
entire bunch of lone Klans were
recognized those who showed
their faces were generally com
mended. Lexington is now on
the map with Morrow Klan No.
33, as its beacon light.

leaving 15 cents for stockholders. Adding 6 9 cents of
income from outside sources, net corporate income was
8.4 cents, of which 4.9 cents was paid in dividends,
leaving 3.5 cents available for appropriations and surplus.
Gross earnings of the railroads in 1922 was $1,567,

The stockholders and bondholders of the railroads got
none of the increase.
It is significant that good times are always coincident
with heavy buying on the part of the railroads and that
bad times are periods of light railway purchases.
The Union Pacific System is one of the most impor
tant enterprises west of the Missouri River. Its nearly
50,000 employes, and their families, constitute a buying
power which is the main reliance of many businesses.
The purchases of the Union Pacific System from firms
'ocated on the System, or which have offices on our
lines, aggregate millions of dollars each month.

made last week by Stanley G.
Jewett, predatory inspector.
Of these, 3498 were coyotes,

three timber wolves, the skins
of which weietent to the Port

checked by the inspector 10U8
porcupines and 4'il badgers were
killed. This number is laruer
than for any previous year, but
is lower than the actual number
on account of the wide use of
poison. About 71,800 baits were
put out on ranches in eastern Or
