Various Commlttles Ap
pointed By the
Last Monday evening the Lakeview
Commercial Club held a very lively and
profitable meeting in the Club rooms
on Center street Much business was
taken uo and disposed of to the best
Interests of the countv. Professor
Burgess, who wss on the committee of
country life education, reported that
considerable interest hsd been aroused
in this move but returns form out side
points had not been received. Judge
Dalv. chairman of the school board.
made a very interesting talk in regard
to the line of educational work that
was proposed bv the new Lakevie'w
High School. He said an effort would
be exerted to create more interest in
fHrm li'e and demonstration gradening
bv pupils and manual training aa well
as a domestic science deoaitment for
girls would be provided.
The committee composed of O. C.
GibbH. J. O'Neill and J. B. Auten ap
pointed to examine and report on the
contents of the various good road bills,
hud compiled a very elaborate report
on the gist of the bills, and made clear
many plausable reasons why they should
not be suoported bv the voters. How
ever, owme the state wide criticism of
the good roads bills, the Harmonizing
committee appointed bv Governor
West, had previously disapproved of
the ones in question and prepared
a bill to auoercede the original mea
sures. Judge Dalv, who was on the
committee, gave a very clear descrip
tion of the purport of the new bill, the
digest of which appears elsewhere. A.
W. Orton. Chus. Combs, and O. C.
(jiblB were appointed as a committee
to report on the advisablitv of the
Commercial Club endorsing the new
good roads bill, as well as the Brown
Immigration bill which provides for
the protection of immigrants against
fradulent real estate dealers.
In the matter of awarding the print
ing of the literature to advertise the
oountv. Secrearv Everett read the vari
ous bids which he had received from
several printing houses. The bids rang

which was submitted bv a San Francisco
house. A vote was taken on the sub
ject and tbe Examiner Publishing Co.
was awarded the contract at a price of
1420 for ten thousand conies. The en
tire cost of the publication will amount
to about SooO. including half-tones, and
S480 has already been pledged. Upon
a motion Prealdent Britten appointed a
eommitlee of Ave. to assist in preparing
the cony for the orlntera subject to the

have recently visited Portland

been given every aeauranoe that all the
large business houies and railroads
will be reoresented at the meeting ot
the Central Oregon Development Lea
gue at Laaevlew In August. Dr. Dalv.
while In Portland last week, visited
the banking Institutions of that city
and came back with their promises of
sending delegates to this meeting.
"We want to aid In making this the
grandest event ever pulled oft In the

stance of the encouragement received
bv Messrs Thompson and Snelling while
Interviewing the business men of Ore
gon's metropolis In regard to the sub
ject. B. V. Kevins, freiaht agent of
the Western Paclfio who was in Lake
view the first of the week, stated to an
Examiner man that he would take up
the proposition with his company to
establish a reduced rate during the
period of the celebration. Manager
Dunaway of the N.-C.-0. assured Mr.
Snelling thut he would grant anv con
cessions possible to help Lakeview on
this occasion. .
While it was no, officially acted upon
at the meeting of the Lakeview Com
mercial Club Monday evening, it was
the prevailing aentlment of the major
Ity present to dispense with a Fourth
of Julv celebration for Lskevlew this
year and to center all energy and ex
pense In tne Development Lesgue cele
bration. However this Is a plan to be
solved later and It is time that it
ahould te acted uoon. The burden
of expense of the Development League
celebration should not fall entirely up
on boslnesa men of the town but should
be met bv citizens of the entire county.
The benefit will be mutual, it is not
going to benefit Lakeview anv more
than anv other section, hence there is
no excuse why the citizens of the
countv should not be interested in
msking tbe meeting a memorable one
and one of mutual benefit.

Many do not consider the importance of

with the large number of candidates in

evcrvone to get busy and register so as
to be able to assist in choosing tbe best

The neglect of manv voters to regis

Ashland Man Makes In
ducement to Goose
The secretary of the Lakeview Com
mercial Club is in receipt of several
letters from an Ashland man who is
desirous of establishing a creamery in
Lakeview or vicinitv. Bv the urging
tenor of bis varioua letters it would
seem thst be Is ouite anxious to give
Lakeview this industry.
He promises at all times of tne vear
to pay within 2. 1-2 cents of tbe San
j Francisco price tor cream and at sea
sons will oav the standard price. ... He
i also proposes to sell cows to the larm-
era and take payment in cream. All
! tbe encouragement he asks for' to es
tablish a creamery is the assurance of
, tbe milk from 300 cows.
I Without a conference with the farm
ers of the valley the Commercial Club
is unable to intelligently take uo the
' matter, and to this end fie Club rooms
will be offered for a meeting of the
farmers. This meeting is necessary
to ascertain the number of cows that
can be handled for this purpose and the
farmers are urgently requested to con
fer with Secretary Everett and arrange -for
a meeting to discuss the matter.
In addition with use of the train to
convey the product to the creamery, on
the south, a number of farmers can ar
range transportation jointly. It thus
J seems that the required number of cows
. could be secured, and it is to be honed
