evening W. Lair Thompson, who he
I stated hud been elected representative
from this district at the last general
election, went to Sulem, hud much
experience and returned some time
ago with"no more hair and no les."
Mr. Thompson said: "Mr. Chairman,
Lndiea. and Gentlement:' There is a
distinguished assembly here tonight.
Among our guests i Attorney General
Crawford, a lawyer and general handy
man of tho administration. We have
with us also Mr. John II. Lewis, an
attorney at law, who with much fore
sight and wisdom has practiced law as
a profession and i now holding down

mean of obtaining a living. We have
also with us Governor West, an attor

may read tho many vetoes which 1
have had the opportunity to read.
There ia also with us Mr. Kay. who
was in the legislature in 1905 when I
was acting in the capacity of chief

of our people that I wish to welcome
to our community the Governor and

it lias been a pleasure to us. Had we
known the Governor four days ago as
we do now we would have been in a
better position to entertain him when
he did arrive.
'"Last October a man cams through
here and told us that West wbs not

felony and had run away with another

and believed him. and for this reason
didn't put forth our best efforts to en
tertain tho Governor and his party
prior to their arrival. Since he has
been with us, however, Mr. West has
made good. We have found out that
he ia not as had as hud been pictured

"If everyone knew what we had here,

Mr. C. C. Chapman, as the next speak
er, as tho president of the Oregon
State Development League and Secre
tary of the Portland Commercial Club.
Mr. Chapman's address follows:
"When I drifted in here this afternoon
I was regarded as a curosity for the
reason that I came from Portland. Up
there we have heard that our business
men have been neglecting opportunities
here, and I am just about ready to

is we don't know much about eastern

through Prineville. In a way 1 don't

ed u along the road and said : "Say,
goin' to get in on the Governor' ban
quet?" We didn't want to mis any
thing like that and from then on the
auto was certainly speeded.
"Mr. Thompson ha stated that one
of the thing you need i publicity.
I am of the same opinion and believe
that what we want i publicity for the
entire state, not part of it. To aid
in this purpose money shoulj be appro
priate I by the State and 1 believe it
will be in time.
"I have just come from a convention
held at Prineville. in Crook county,
were they organized the Central Ore

thi convention people came in on
hornebark and in vehicle of all kind.
The only representative from your
county was a man from Silver Lake,
S. W. Martin.
"When 1 started for Southern Oregon
many Portland people told me that tui
section would prove to be a big dissa
pointment and that the railroads were
coming to this very conclusion. On the
map people know this section simply
as the "Sandy Desert." Since coming
here 1 have found out different and
am free at this time to acknowledge it.
"On behalf of the Portland Commer
cial Club I wish to state that your
county will from this time on recieve
just as much publicity as any other
county in the State. (Applause) In
the past our failure to recognize you
mor than we have has been due whol
ly to ignorance. 1 will advise you
to stick together, get behind your
league and shout and you will get re
cognition. As you get busy we will get
busy and you will find that the rail
roads will do the same thing. The
stronger you are the sooner you will
get the railroad. 1 express on behalf
of the people of Portland the good will
we feel." g- " it
Mr. Orton was then introduced hy
Chairman as the next speaker of the
, eet::ig. who among other things said :
"I sjiiak merely as as representative
of th.j Government. At the present

"Commercially we belong to Califor

Mr. Conn then followed, ad his re
marks in part were as follows :. "In

by St!te Treasruer Kay. who said:
"It is a nlesaure for m; to be here
tonight, and I wish to say that the re

has indeed been cordial. Befoic
I proceeding further I will take a few
I moments ot your time to relate n story
told me by one of Dr. Daly's friends
about the doctor. When a young man
he was called on to perform ar opera

finally sewed up. but in packing away
his tools the doctor happened to miss
a sponge. The wound wa reopened
and inside was found the missing
article. Hi again went through tne
process of sewing up the opened parts
and after completing the work fourai
that one of his insturments was miss

so he finally reopened the wound for
the second time and was fortunate In
finding the article. The process of
sewing was again gone through and
this time the doctor thought that it
had been completed, but. alas, he was
again obildged to re-open it for some
reason or another. The patient was
beginning to get tired of it by this
time and calling the doctor to his side
said, "Say, Doc, if this is to be kept
up I wish you would sew buttons on
''The principal reason we are here
tonight is because we wish to be in
formed about your country so as to be
in a position to decide intelligently on
all matter coming up before us and
which relate to your section of the
State. We are much interested in
your locality, and expect to come back
here again whenever the occasion
arises. In going over your country
we have seen the vastness of it and its
many resources, but when we come
back again expect to see it much
changed. Speaking of changes reminds
me of a story I once heard a about a
junk dealer. He happened to be taken
sick and his wife finally induced him to
take a turkish bath, this he did. but
on returning home found that his vest
was missing and was not to be found
at either the bath house or any of the
other places he had stopped at on his
way home. Several yeara later he
was again troubled with the same com

Rights of Way and Depot
COMMITTEES AT WORK
Conclusions Will Be Reached
When Road Is Located from
That the people of Lakeview are
deeply interested in the railroad situa
tion was evidenced Tuesday evening by
the large number who responded to the
call for a mas meeting at the Court
House to consider the question. Mayor
Bailey called the meeting to order
and briefly stated its purpose, that
of procuring a right of way for the
N.-C.-0. from Funk's point and depot
grounds in Lakeview.
In response to calls from many, W.
Lair Thompson briefly outlined the
situation and suggested a permanent
organization be effected and and two
committees appointed, one to bring
Chief Engineer Oilver to Lakeview and
have him locate his road so that steps
could be taken to secure the right of
way. while the other would secure
option on the different depot sitf .
Dr. B. Daly heartily endorse', the
plan outlined by Mr. Thompson, arid
states that he considers the present the
opportune time ti take the matter up
with the railroai cfficifcij.
Messrs J. N. Wstson and H. W.
Drenkel also r.ia I ; a few remarks
pledging support to the movement.
In accordance with the plan outlined
by Mr. Thompson, Mayor Bailey was
elected permanent chairman and W. F.

to procure ..ptions on depot sites con
sists of Chairman Bailey. W. Lair

and A. L. Thornton, while H. W.
Drenkel. J. D. Venator and V. L.
Sn i.f will use their persuasive
pevers upon Chief P.nr'.neer Oliver in
' avoring to induce him to locate
to road along the old meander line of
'he lake instead of cutting ua ail the
anches north of Funk's point.
Mr. Thompson stated that just as
soon as the survey was completed to
Lakeview, Superintendent Hanson
would start agra iing outfit on this end
to work south, while Dr. Daly was
authority for the statement that the
plans for the Lakeview depot were al
ready drawn, and that no doubt work
would commence on the stricture as
soon as the site was selected.
The committees were instructed to
"cet busy," and the meeting adjourned
subject to tne call of the triiairmin.
