matter ot much speculation. II. W.

have arisen which make it seem prob

railroad people to abandon some of the

The entire grade from Davia Creek

A special election to be held Tues
day. November 7. 1911. has oeen called
in Silver Lake. Summer Lake. Paisley.
Lake and Fort Rock precincts to deter
mine whether the sale of intoxicating;
liquors shall be prohibited therein.
At first it waa thought that the-eoeoial
elcetion held at Paisley Tuesday of this
week would invalidate the election on
the liquor Question, but in considering
the question later on it was ascertained
that Paisley will not be an incorporated
town until after the result of the Nov
ember election is known.
It seems that after passing upon the
election at Paisley bv the Countv Court
the matter haa to be passed upon by j
the Attorney General before it becomes !
a full-fledged town, and therefore it i
was decided to grant the petition for I
tne election to vote on tne liquor ques
tion. As both the Silver Lake Leader and
Chewaucan Post favor a license system
over existing conditions, and thev pro
bably represent the wishes of a ma
jority of the people in their respective
sections, it is likely that the wets will
again be in the majority. However,
it Is absolutely certain that thev will
know that they are having; a scrap be
fore the election is held.
