Baker Write Lonjr Lettci Show I ins: Why Entire Vote Should lie Counted This Pall OREGON SHOULD CAST 1 10,003 I'ortland. Ore., Oct. :'4. l!Hil. pi-' a it M'i: ''"or commercial reas on If nothing else, 1 hope that every Itizcii of Oregon will exhibit sutll clfiit Interest In t heforthcoming ejec tion to not only go to the polls hlm self hut to exert his best efforts to gel all his neighbors out to vote, re gardless of party affiliations. l-t oor love for our highly-favored state iDHpIre us to show the business world that we are np and doing, and that our population Is Increasing year by year, that we do not purpose sitting Idly by and allowing our neighbor irtatea after this Presidential election to advertise to the world that they nro growing In population and Ore gon standing still. It should be a matter of state pride for every voter to avail himself of Ids franchise and rote. As a means of showing a growth of population. It is ahsolute ly reutlnl that a full vote be register ed. No question but the growth of our state at the present time Is the most Vapid in Its history; but there 1 a nieuus of show lug It to 1 lie world uuil the oportuulty sh uld not be ni'jrlwtvd. Let us h ve all the voters out Republicans, Democrats, Soclnl IstM, Prohibitionists. Stand up and lie counted for the state. Shall we fold our hands uud not avail ourselves of this Important anil unusual opportunity to announce to the world that we are growing lu population? Over lu Washington enterprising citizens, regardless of party, are exerting every effort to get the vote out in order to advertise that their state is advancing, aud consequently is the state for people to move to. Four years ago Washington cast 107.OUO.odd votes, aud the state of Oregon cast 84,000-odd votes. This year they are working 140,000; aud " tiny succeed it will mean an in- m-useof over 32 percent. If Oregon's ratio of Increase is to be the same as Washington's, we should return over IIO.IHH) votes uext month. Here we have but f ur presidential uW'tors to vote for; hence the only (actor available to create sufficient Interest in the election is a spirit of tate pride, a duo regard for our Hate's welfare, and availlug our 'lves of an opportunity of attract ing capital and immigration to our "tate. with Washington it Is differ ent. Over there they have their state, 'IMrlct, county and precinct ofllcers to elect; and this, as you know, will nia in gvttlug out the vote. More over, Uiey have u contest for gover nor, and that of Itself will mnnufac luru Interest. The citizens of our state nro every 'vhciv organizing aud spending mou ''J to advertise and encourage imml Kfatlon. x)j0 Oregon Development k'tigm.

Don't worry your head alionthow i your neighbor is going to vote; slm j ply emphasize the importance from a J cointuerclal standpoint of hi doing ; mo. And, moreover, every man should avail himself of Miat sacred right. After this Presidential election the newspapers of the country will teem with comparative data touching the growth ut Oregou. of Washington, of Idaho; in fact, the growth of every Pacific state since the last Presiden tial election will be given fullest pub licity. And papers of Washington, Seattle In particular, will publish In bold-faced type the growth of that state; and should her ratio of in crease exceed Oregon's, there will be no end to newspaper comment nor to the distribution of literature showing the disparity between the ratio of these two states. Will It not cause inquiry and subsequently Immigration if newspapers, alma nacs, ami government and othersta tlstlcs all over the natlou advertise that Oregon since the last presldetial election has grown equally in popu lation with other states of the Pacif ic. The fact Is, we have grown in population, aud It but remains for voters of this state to demonstrate that fact to people who are looking to the Pacific for future Investments and homes. And there another side to this ques tion. Keuator John P. Dolllver of Iowa remarked at these headquar ters recently that the best place to get legislation in Washington is at the White House; and he emphasized the Importance of Oregon giving Roosevelt aud Fairbanks a larger ma jority in November than the state went In June. Listen to substantial ly his own words: "You will have a call on the Presi- dentand his Immeiiiate political fam ily then. They will be constrained to not deny Oregon's delegation In Congress any reasonable request. Your rivers and harbors, your irri gation schemes, the Jetty at the mouth of the Columbia, the canal at The Dalles, your arid lauds, your forest timber lands, your transport service, your worlds fair, and your federal buildings these and whatev er else require help will stand a far greater chance of satisfactory atten tion from Congress than if the people of your state wrap the drapery of their couches about them and lie down to pleasant dreams. Why, Iowa will give Koosevelt aud Fair bauks at the very least 100,000. .This Is conceded. Still the red tiro of en thusiasm Is illuminating every pre cinct in tho Hawkeye state. What for? Simply because It will redound to our state's credit ut Washington!" I beg pardon for submitting to you this long letter; but having some pro perty interests In the state, and be ing a comparatively zealous native hou of Oregou, my humble efforts have been aud will continue to be along the Hue of commercial specula tion. I have In the discharge of my duties as Chairman of tho Kepublicaa State Committee striven to conduce STOCK NEWS THIS WEEK Swan son and Gerber Both Buying In Lake County 4 1-3 to S i-a Cents the Price. BIG ORDER FOR RUSO-JAP. WAR Those who bought bucks last week were, Wade Snyder 11, W. K. Mc Cormaek of Paisley, 12, C. E. Camp bell of Paisley 0, Dan Malloy 20 and John Davis of Davis Creek 7. Swanson, the cattle buyer went to Warmer first of the week and bought about 400 head of cattle from the TT firm. The price being paid for cattle now Is 4 to b cents delivered at Merrill. He expected to close the deal for about 400 head of 70 cattle yesterday. Dan Malloy bought 1500 yearling weathers for L. Gerber, to be deliver ed at Merrill. He bought 300 from Zac Whit worth, 300 from Geo. Wright 300 from Chandler, 300 from Roggers and 300 - from Shellhanimer. Dan also put in 600 of his own. Theprlce was $2 per head. Chas Williams, the Parker Creek sheep man, was doing business in Al turas last Friday. He Informed us that sheep are doing tine, and we be lieve that this has been a prosperous year for the sheep man. New Era. J. F. Bowman, a cattle man of Glenburn, Shusta county, was In Al turus a few days last week. He was not buying any cattle this time, say ing the market was to .uncertain to Justify It. New Era. Ld. Ivory, Jr. last week started 200 head of fine fat calves to the San Francisco market. Calves are bring ing fancy prices in the city market. New Era. Chas. Duncan, the Black's Canyon horse man, made a good sale of mules last week. New Era. Jim lnnes went out to Drews val ley while here last week and bought seven head of thoroughbred Here ford bulls from F. O. Bunting. He now has seventeen of this stock of bulls In his herd, and has every rea son to believe his breed of cattle will be much Improved. ''Frank Buutlug lias several head of Hereford bulls at Merrill, where he expects to sell them to stockmen of that section. Stockmen who have tried the whlteface cattle are not sorry they Invested a good round sum In Installing this breed of cattle in their herds. - f The report that the Japanese and Russians have bargained for 6 mil lion pounds of canned beef from San Francisco packers, is encouraging to stock meu of this country. It will require about 15,000 head of grown cattlo to fill the order. Cows and second-class steers are generally used for canning. to my party's best interests, and havo also striven to promote tho best Interests; and long as I contluuo In this cupaclty, my chlefest aim shall bo to contribute not alono to tho beat interests of tho Republican' par ty, but to tho best luterests of the entire people of Oregon; aud in this latter regard I believe that if this let ter to you will cause any apathetic citizen to vote, my humblo efforts will not have been in vain. Your Obedient Serveut, Fiunk C. IUkek, Chairman Republican State Coin- mlttot. A. Morris came over-from War ner Saturday. He' remained . here several days waiting for the lnnes cattle to be gathered so he could look at them. It will be remembered that Mnpcs bought 250 head from Mr. lnnes a few weeks ago. J. A.

Stark, the absconding preacher may be. Whether washing dishes in a restau rant at Stockton or occupying a pul pit in Michigan. The fact Is he is an absconding debtor and a hypocrite, and that the wash administered by our contemporary, The Examiner, cannot cleanse him. He is. guilty of a far greater crime than the poor negro who was sentenced to the pen itentiary, and should have been brought to justice even If he did have a 'Rev. attached to his name." Herald. (The item referred to in the above was one published in The Examiner last week, Issued a few hours before the Herald went to press, and which neither savored of vindication or censure of J. B. Stark, but was simp ly Intended to show that the, Her ald man did not know what he was talking about when he said the week before that Stark was working in a reeraurant in Stockton, aud If the Herald man doesn't quit firing back at Items In The Examiner, tho same week they are published; people will catch on to where he gets his news.) Diphtheria. It is uow an assured fact that there is a treat number f rasas of diphtheria in Big valley. There were three deaths In Adln, Bieber and vicinity last Sunday, and Mr. Trow bridge, who is here attending court, Informs us there is a largo number of cases among the children. Health oillcer Gibson went down in that section this week, and tho towns and the county line has been quar lntlued, the mails will bo fumigated, and all precautions will be taken, still there Is plenty of chance for tho diseaso to havo already spread all over tho county. It is tho most dreaded diseaso of all, and people of this town should begin immediately to flirht acalnsb It. The different doctors of this place havo expressed a fear of u spread of dlphthorla, after tholongspellof high water wo had hero last Spring. This warm dry weather Is Just the kind to breed diseases, so lets all unlto in an effort to prevent Its spread here, where hundreds of little children are In danger. New Era. FOOT BALL IS BEASTLY Worse Than Spanish Bull Fights Men are Knocked .Senele.s Draped out and Forgotten GAME PIRALEILS 01 DEN TIMES . Cokvai.i.ih, Okk. Editor Examiner, Lakevibw. Onfc., Dkar Sue Thinking your readers might be Interested In hearing some thing from this part of the country, aside from the current news of the papers, I will endeavor to give you some items that has come under my perhaps astute observation. First Is the social aspect of Corval lls, which I can assure you is pre-eminent. The people are corteous and friendly; no codfish aristocracy. Secondly, the moral element is largely in the ascendency; there are twelve churches in the city, all which have a respectable congregation, and some of them scarcely have sitting room for the congregation and gen eral attendance. Thirdly, there are few saloons and those are conducted In such a man ner as to require no policemen. They have a city marshal and watchman. Their county Jail is mouldy from want of use. . Fourthly, theireducatlonal depart ments and privileges are without a rival. But fifthly, I take issue with them In regard to their amusements, especially their foot ball games. I consider it. a beastly as well as an uncouth game. There is nothing, graceful about it. I have had the disgusting privilege of witnessing two games, saw men knocked sense less, laid out and had to be resusita ted by physicians whom they have on the ground; and yet it Is popular. Men women and children go wild over the game, Professors encourage and abet it, offer prizes, Government pays instructors, etc. The only difference I can see be tween it and the Spanish Bull lights is in the latter we sympathize with the poor dumb brute, that is Chris tian like, whereas in the foot ball game little or no sympathy is shown to tho fallen. But their motto Is the survival of tho fittest. Now I am aware that I will render myself un popular by antagonizing that -pop-ular amusement. But I think somo other game might be Invented less' dangerous and tlll develop the phy sical powers of the student. They say Uui hUtuiy ivpeUiUlf. - AuX I have often wondered it we were gradually drifting bock to the days of the Roman Gladiators. cannot however bring my mind to believe It possible to degeuerate or drift back to a state that will paralell the condition of Rome under the govern ment of Nero. And yet I coufess I am a great admjrer of Knighthood and true valor and tho chariot races as portrayed by Ben Ilur. 1 might add more but fear I might indict too much on your readers. Aud to tell tho truth I am a llttlo suspicious of tho waste basket. Yours Respectfully S, O. PKASti. . Notice to Sheepmen. We wish to anuouuee to tho sheep men of Lake county and vicinity that we will slaughter sheep and lambs at our yards on commission, at 30 cents per head. . Mii.i.ku Lux, 41-10 Han Francisco, Calif.
