That the. railroads nnd Weyeiiiaus
er timber interests may bring suit to

road nud timber interests have so de
clared themselves to him.
Tho representatives of tho interests
declare that they have u decision of
tho supremo court that all fond irieet
ings to consider tho mntter must ho

by 10 per cent of tho taxpayers ns is

in giving satisfaction both to the pro

and to its patrons. He has not lim

usually nssumed by a market master
but has in addition takea it upon him
keif lo workwith abd advise produc

not bo over-supplied with products
which could not be disposed of each
market day, and at the same time
should bo supplied with. tho largest
possible number and variety of dif

Probably tho most historical spot
in nil Oregon today is Ihe region of
Iho llig Apph'galo whero even the

Some 12 mouths ngo n sleek gen

of Ihe stung club in that vicinity were
