State Grange and different commercial bodiea of the atate. Owlna to the dissenalon of the original bills, the Harmonising Committee waa aaacmbled to draft a good road measure to the beat Inter eat a of the people of the entire atate. A valuable bill waa on-pared to super cede the others which waa disapproved only bv the State Grange. Thia body emphatically oppoaed atate aid. Dr. Dalv staled that no apparent reaaona were offered for thia oMection and that the people, as a whole, through out the atate favored the oruooeed bill. It la aooarent that Oregon In her nresent condition decidedly needs a I atate aid measure to aaea cltv nroo erty for road development.

It will be known aa the Elk's Special, al though a cordial invitation is extended every one to ioin in and make it a big success. While a number of "Hills" and "to-be-Bills." together witn their wives and sweethearts, will be aboard the train, vet it is expected that there will also be many other excursionists from Warner. New Pine Creek. Dsvis Creek. Alturss and other points along the railroad, who will assist In making the excursion one grand alTair. The fare for the round trio haa been fixed at S20. tickets bing good only on the dav of sale but can be used on the re turn trip on anv regular train within IS da vs. The fare from intermediate points will be one and one-third of the regular rate. There will probably be 20 candidates for Elkdom aboard the train and a number of Bill Elks will accompany them to see thst thev get what la com ing to them. However. It Is thought that assistance will be needed to core for the youngsters en route, and hence a cordial invitation la extended tbe general public to loin the excursion so that there will be plenty of assistance In landing the candidates should anv attemnt to escspo before reaching Reno. It will sure be worth the money, whether vou are an Elk or not. for the N.-C.-O. will continue its practice of "The best is none too good for Lake view."

The new measure proposes to bond the atate in a rum not to exceed $1,000,000 annually and the total indebtedness fur anv pur Doae is not to exceed two per cent of the assessable prnnertv in the state. The bonds are to run 30 veara and bear Interest not to exceud four and one- half Dur cent.

Continued on pnu Hicbt COMMERCIAL CLUB CALLS MEETING Various Commlttles Ap pointed By the President 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 ed from practically $500 down to S2G0 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 anuroval of the commercial bodiea of tbe sections to be represented in the book let. Those - named on the committee are E L. Britten. Dr. E. D. Everett, E. C. A hint rum. H. P. Welch and Kaloh E. Koozer. Twelve new members have been ad ded since the !at meeting and ceneral interest in the club seems to be rain ing. The next regular meeting will be held Monday evening. March 11.

CHINESE AFFAIRS CREATEINTEREST Nations to Unite In Con tinuing Integrity of China England. Russia, tiermanv and Jap an have responded favorably to Secre tary Knox's invitation to place them selves on record with the United States for the continued Integrity of China and joint action, without seeking in dividual advantage in anv concerted movement of the powers which may be come nerceasarv lo the present distur bances. France. Italy and Austria, to whom copies of the note were sent, have not responded. The inter change waa called forth bv Secretary Knox's letter on February 3d to Count Von Rernstorff. the Em bassador from Germany, in which the views and the attitude of the United States toward the situation in China were made a subject of record. Diplomats generally interpreted the note as an Indictsion that Germany and the United Statea were agreed and would stand together to continue the intorsitv of China while at tbe same time it waa construed as invitation to other powers to place themselves on record. MEETING WILL BE MEMORABLE ONE Largo Delegation Will At tend Development Celebration Parties including Dr. Dalv. W. Lair Thompson and V. L. Snelling. have recently visited Portland who and other outside cities, state they have 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 gout he, n part of the state" is the sub 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.

An tone, a homesteader in tbe north end of the vallev. accidentally dis charged the firearm and the buMet penetrated the flesh cart of bis left arm.

Will Make No Direct Re ply to Roosevelt's Speech Wathingtm. Feb. 28. President Taft will s 'on slsrt a vigorous speech making campaign to explain hia posi tion on current Questions and further his candiascv for the renominstion. Be fore the Republican National Conven tion meets in June, the president will aoend man-' dava on the road and is ex pected to deliver scores ot speeches. He will travel as tar west as Chicsgo. north as far as New Hampshire and south as fsr as Georg'a. Other engage ments mav be made within a few weeks. Although no announcement was made as to the subjects of his speeches, it is practically sure he will not fail to include the recall of judges, the "recall" of . judicial decisions, possib ly the initiative and referendum and topio touched on bv Roosvelt in his Columbus speech. Taft will make no direct reolv to that speech and it haa been stated with emphasis that he will not Indulge in personalities, but that he will make clear hia own views on msny doctrines advocated bv Roosevelt in Columbus is almost certain. TAET'S CAMPAIGN TO OPEN IN LAKE Club to Be Formed at the Court House Next Monday Evening: Monday evening is the time fixed for the organization of the Lake countv Taft Club, and the onlvfesrexoressed is thst as practically everv one favors the renominstion of the President that onlv few of the faithful will be present. It is therefore earnestly reauested that all who tavor the renominstion of Presi dent Taft be present at tbe Court House next Monday evening and show bv their presence that they believe that the best interests of the country can best be subserved bv his reelection. A special invitation is extended to the ladies. lor it is almost a foregone con clusion that the right of sufferage will be extended them at the next election in Oregon. The brass band will furnish music for the occasion, while a number of sueskera will be in attendance. Heavy Loss of Hay Klamath Herald: Luke Walker. whose ranch is Just this Bide of Blv. recived a telephone message seating that fire had destroyed about 200 out of 260 tons of bay he had stacked on his place, and was still burning. On ac count of the shortage of hay in that viuinitv the loss will prove more than usually serious. But two davs ago the owner was offered $7 uer ton for tbe product. Mr. Walker brought with him to this city to market eighteen head of beef tattle. N.-C.-0. DEPOT PLANNED BIDS FOR CONSTRUCTION OPEN IN RENO NEXT SATURDAY Will Be a Magnificent Structure Constructed of Brick and Stone With Tiling and Marble Finishing Bids for the construction of Lake view's depot will be ooened at Keno Saturday next, and it is understood that work thereon will immediately follow. A aet of plana were received last week bv I. A. Underwood, and tbev show that the building will be not only a credit to Lakeview but to tbe N.-C.-O. Kv. as well, being modern and op to date in every particular. It will be tuilt of brick and stone, with fine floors, plate glass and marble finishings, the estimated coat being $15,000. The brickwork will be of flemish construction, which sbowa the raised black mortar between tbe bricks themselves, while tbe trimming will be of cot stone, and the roof of galvanized iron tiling. Tbe building will be full two stories in height, with the boiler room in tbe basement. On the first floor will be the ticket office, waiting room, baggage room, toilets, etc. The waiting room is of handsome proportions, having an arched ceiling extending an into tbe second story, and being 20 feet in tbe clear. It is well lighted with numer ous large plate glass windows, and has magnificent entrancea on both tbe east and west sides. When completed tbe building will be 75x35feet 6 inches in size, with a drive way on the south end. REGISTRATION IS SLOW IN COUNTY Time is Limited to Regis ter Before the April Primaries The latest date on which vou can register before the April Primariea is April S. Following is a list of tbe registered voters bo far from the differ ent precincts : Summer Lake, 5; Sil ver Lake. 85: Paisley, 6; Crooked Creek. 9: North Warner. 3: South War ner. 0; North Lakeview. 47: South Lakeview. 96: Drews Vallev. 9: Goose Lake. 16; Cogswell Creek. 60; Thomas Creek. 8: Lake. 2: Fort Rock. 84. This shows the total number of regis tration to be 491 thus far. aeainst UC3, the total number of voters registered in the' countv at the last election. Many do not consider the importance of voting at the primary election, but with the large number of candidates in the political arena this vear it behooves evcrvone to get busy and register so as to be able to assist in choosing tbe best candidate for the regular election. The neglect of manv voters to regis ter early is causing candidates much trouble in getting the necessary number of signatures to their petitions. Only voters who have registered are eligible to sign a candidate'a petition. and as a certain percentage in at leaBt j three precincts of the countv are re Quired before be can get hia name on the ticket much time is necessary in which to hunt uo the eligible signers. In North and South Lakeview pre cincts the trouble is not so great but outside of those two precincts but few voters have thus far taken the trouble to register. It should be remembered that only those who have registered are eligible to vote at the primary election, and one can not "swear in his vote" as is the case at regular elec tions. The following from the Portland Telegram shows the total registration of the state by counties uo to about a week ago: With a total registration in the atate already uo to 61.065. with about a month and a half lett for the electors to register, it appears as though the registration for the coming primaries will eclipes the registration for those of last election. The registration by counties as received at the office of the Secretary of State is as follows : Baker, Tbe second floor is devoted to offices, which are reached by an eaav stairway from tbe center of the building. The different elevations of tbe build ing indicate that it will present a handsome appearance from both the railroad track and from town, as well as from the sooth. It is striking ia appearance, and F. J. De Longehampa. tbe architect, is certainly to be con gratulated on the splendid plans and appearance of tbe building that be haa worked out. C. W. Class, tbe very efficient agent for the company at this station, is now preparing plana for beautifying tbe grounds, it being bis intention to bay a park between the freight and pass enger denote, so that incoming oassen gera will be greeted by a pleasant sight on their arrival in Lakeview. Mr. Class will also have a space allotted in the waiting room for display of the products of Goose Lake Valley and other portions of Lake countv. so that homeseekers can at once ae what ia produced in this section. Thst tbe N.-C.-O. ia still msking good ia evi denced bv the wise saving that by their "works ve shall know them." The building will doubtless be placed at the font of Center street, where it will present a most imposing appear- OPPORTUNITY TO SECL'RECREAiilERY Ashland Man Makes In ducement to Goose Lake Farmers 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 ; the fsrmers will tske immediste action uoon getting a creamery installed here.
