after the rails should he laid and not;

Continuing Mr. Hanson said: "The.
only poMsible thing that will prevent
the completion of the road bv the i
time named is the lutior queelion.
Should a number of the Greek laborers
quit before that time then perhaps we
would be delayed a few davs. but

"The Truth About Lake
County Good Enough
At a verv enthusiastic meeting held
Monday night, the Lakeview Commer
cial Club was organized with a charter
membership of about tlftv residents of
town and county, though it is honed
to secure at least one hundred, during
the next week. The purpose of the
organization is to assist in the develop
ment of the resources of the county
and to tell the people outside of the
many opnortunities that we have to
otTer the intending settler, at the same
time working for the good of the en
tire state. W. Roche Fick called the
meeting to order and after a few well
chosen remarka. asked for the nomin
ation of a temporary chairman, when
J. II. Venator wus selected. Mr. Vena
tor Jthen called for nominations for
President, when tho names of Thos. S.
Farrell and E. L. Britten were made,
and after talk ny Mr. Britten in
which he tried to refuse the office on
account of being a comparatively new
resident of the town, a vote was taken
in which Mr. Britten was chosen to
nreHide over the organization. Charles
I). Fihk was then selected as Secretary
and F. Fetsch chosen as Treasurer.
The initial work of the oflicera is to
secure members, which tnev feel will
be a comparatively easy taKk. as it is
well recognized that Lakeview and
iake Countv needs an organization of
this kind and it ia only through co
operation on the part of the residents
of the. countv that anything along these
lines can be accomplished. Kverv busi
ness man in the community is be
sieged with letters from people every
where asking about what we have here
in lands of all kinds and other open
ings. The secretary will be glad to an
swer these inquiries on a basis of
facts, feeling that the "truth about
Luke county is good enough for any
one." One other feature of tho organ
ization will be to work hand in hand
with the Oregon I'evelnpnient League
and the Eastern Oregon Development
League in the great work of bringing
this section of Oregon to the attention
of people everywhere.

It is getting late in the season.and a few

changes in weather conditions. , How
ever. November is generally a verv
pleasant month in Lake countv and if
the celebration ia held not later than
the middle of the ninth there will un
doubtedly be a large attendance from

cursion rstes from all points between

no doubt a large number of people
will avail themselves of the opportun

STATE AID FOR
Judge Daly's Plans Fav
ored by Good Reads
Dr. B. Dalv. countv judge, a few
davs ago returned from Portland where
he attended the meeting of the Oregon
(Jood Roada Commission, he having
been appointed a member of that bo'iv
bv Governor West
Judge Dalv is greatly elated over
the outcome of the meeting, inasmuch
as the final results met his views
exHctlv ; in fact it was upon his sugges
tions that the plans whicn were finally
adonted were outlined. He is of the
opinion that Governor West will short
lv call a special session of the Legisla
ture to Pass good roads legislation, and
that tv next season permanent high
ways will be in course of construction
throughout the State.
There was at first much opposition
to the plan of securing State aid to
wards building roads, but when the
Judge showed the commission that
otherwise at least 60 per cent of the
taxable property would escape its
just share of the expense unless such a
system was adopted it was but a lew
moments until practically all shared
his views. -
When again Judge Dalv informed the
Commission that Eastern Oregon must
have more than what would seem to
be its just share nf the money raised
there were still further objections, but
his plan of apportioning 75 per cent of
the amount raised equally between
the several counties of the State and
the remaining 25 per cent on an area
basis waa finally adopted. Bills along
these lines for presentation to the
Legislature were prepared, and a
synopsis of the same follow.
Judge Dalv's activity at the meeting
gained much notoriety tor Lake
County, as well as himself, and those
in attendance learned to their com
plete satisfaction that we are strictly
on the map.
The first bill adopted by the com.
mission ia entitled "A bill for an act
providing for the establishment of a

permanently. Mr. Biuenlw will also
remove to that place the onicea ot
the Lakeview Development Company
and the Southern Oregon Realty Com
pany. Most of the holdings of both of
theBe companies he in and about

the business could
be .better handled
from that point.

action will have anv beneficial effect
in the preservation 0. '' . , 't la
absolutely certain that u ove
detrimental to the for. V ce.
Heretofore rangers were wavs
welcome in the camp of huntia and
pleasure seekers but now they will no
doubt in many Instances be treated as
snies and interlopers and as a conse
quence invited to keep out of camps.
Just as the bovt were making good

that such duties will make them un

The round-up of beef cattle in the

Plenty of Wheat In Sight
The Lakeview Flouring Mills are now
ready to begin grinding the bumper
wheat crop of Goose Lake Valley and
onertions will begin shortly. George
Hammerslev. of New Pine Creek, will
be in charge of the mills, while F. O.
Bunting will attend to the buying and
selling end of the business.
Tne local wbeat cron is much larger
this vear than ever before, while the
same condition exists all over adjoin
ing sections. As a consequence prices
are not as aatisfactry to the grower
as thev might be: the mills paving but
$1.15 per 100 pounds, although business
houses psv 10 cents more, lhe reason
for the difference in price is thst the
farmer exchanges his wbeat lor sup
plies, and the business houses in turn
exchange the wheat for flour, which is
virtually the same as allowing the
farmer $1.25 in trade or $1.15 in cash
per 100 lbs. for his wheat.
There is also a large vield of bnrlev.
but as vet none has changed hands
at the price offered. $1.10 per 100 lbs.
While there may not Le the local de
mand for barlev that there has teen
during the past several vears. yet 'the
farmers consider that the once offered
is not a fair one and are therefore
holding fur an advance.
Cold In the Mountains
The sheepmen will all soon be start
ing for the desert with their bunds of
sheep, as the weather in the hills and
mountains is reported to be getting
verv cold and the sbeeo are hard to

been exceptionally good th s summer
and the stock will all leave the hills in
fine condition for the winter season.

Thursday. All were greatly surprised
at the large grain acreage as well as
the several orchards upon which could
be seen various kinds of fruits. Vege
tables of ail kinds were .in evidence,
while the large number of potato
patches indicated that there would be
no scarcity of suuds this year.
A visit was made to the big thresh

Nelson. J. C. Oliver, and others, but
unfortunately it was undergoing re
pairs, the engine refumng to do its
share of the work. There ia a large
amount of grain vet to be threshed in

Tbe railroad grade is now practi
