attempted murder on the night his
pony was stolen.
The Indians hail been detailed to
steal all of the horses they could

A numlsT of Southerner met last
Saturday in the 1. O. O. F. hall at
Lakview at the call of Daniel Boone
of 1'IiihIi, for the purpose of organl-'
lug the M-ople of the South, resident
in Iake county into a society a Mr.
Iloone expressed it, "for social en
J'tyinent through annual reunion."
In hi siM-ech he inatle it distinctly
understood that this wa not to 13
a political organization but for so
cial enjoyment. He said: "I have
worked hani and want to play and
you are the fellows I would like to
play with. The struggle for money
I tin-some and I want Home fun.
Happiness dx' not consist in what
we gain hut what we enjoy. We do
ourselves the most good in helping
others enjoy themselves. Southern
ers need not lie ashamed of their
reronl. The South has produced
some grand men; the Father of our
country was a Southerner. South
ern men succeed everywhere. Our
hearts, no matter where we travel,
go bark to the sunny South. We all
love America ami do not intend that
this assiH'iation shall be a political
organization. Republican and Dem
ocrat, difference of creed shall not
bar anyone. We do nor want this
association of Southerners to be
thought a deiiUK-ratlc society. 1 am
a republican though 1 fought in the
Southern cause; ami this is not to be
wondered at for I believe it Is at
easy for a Southerner to be a Repub-.

Mr. Boone was followed by Mr.
Walters w ho said: "I am the oldest
man and know the least. I am in
favor of this stK'ial organization and
am ready for a good time."
Then Mr. Walters suggested that
Vint Snellfug "tell all he knew as It
wouldn't take him long." Mr. Stal
ling replied that he doubted if be
could make a sieech If limited to
what he kuew. Editor Moore of the
Lakeview Herald made a few re
marks and also C. M. Smythe wUo
represented the Lakeview Examiner.
Judge Daly spoke kindly of the
southern geople and in favor of tbe
organliatlon of the society.
A good deal of laughter was cre
ated when under the head of amuse
ment, Mr. Boone asked the County
Judge "what games he played" say
ing "I would like to know so that I
could defeat you at some of them."
It was decided at length to call a
meeting for the first Saturday la
October for the purpose of organlia
tlon and that a cordial Invitation be
extended through the Lakeview
press to all Southern men and wom
en resident of Iake county to come
and join the organization that day.
After a bountiful repast at Harvey's
Cafe the meeting was adjourned.
