"However now that It Is hardly practicable for you to make the trip until after the Fourth, I believe that you will find the trio filled with plea sure and some profit if you postpone ssme until the time of the annual meet of the Central Oregon Development league, Auguat 20, 21. and 22. Youra very respectfully, E. D. EVERETT, Secy." The matter of the excursion will be taken up at the nexi meeting of the Reno Commercial Club. While Independence Dav waa this year left unobserved In Lakeview, our neighboring towns provided aufllctent amusement for all visiting delegationa and we are glad to aay that goodly crowds turned out from here to attend outside points. The celebration at Alturss waa pro nounced a decided success. From bare about ISO people were In attend ance and July 4 waa made Lakeview Day at tbat town., Many went down to witneaa tba aviation performance of Weldon Cook, who made several suc oeasful flights during the celebration. The baseball tournament was a atrong addition to tbe festivities. A big purse waa bung up for first money, wblcb Alturss succeeded In keeping at borne. Tbe game between Lakeview and Alturss the day of the Fourth waa won by tbe local nine In a acore of 5 to 8.

Rev. O. T. Morgan Takes Charge of Local Church Creates Impression BURNS WILL SENO BIGJJELEGATION Inland Town Will Provide Talent For League Meet In Lakeview Rev, O. T. Morgan, Ph. D., the new pastor of the Presbyterian Church, ar rived in Lakeview Saturday by way of Klamath from the Rogue River Val ley. He preached bis introductory ser mons to good audiencee Sunday. From the reporta tbat come to ua concerning the aermons, it seems tbat a new boost er has come to our city. Dr. Morgan disclaimed any intention ot trying to build up merely a aect or religious sooiety, but declared that be wished to be counted in on any effort to bet ter tbe educational and business con ditions of the city, aa well aa tbe re ligious. The people of the church were much pleased with these opening ser mons. Dr. Morgan ia a man in the prime of life and cornea to ua enriched by much experience and a thorough education. He spent a year in graduate work in John Hopkina University and holda the degrne of Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Cbioago. He taught Greek and Hebrew for ten yeara in Drake University, Des Moines, la., ana also correspondence Hebrew in the University of Chicago. He baa also held pastorates in Illinois and Cailfor nia. Dr. Morgan's family ia atill in Rogue river valley and be will not bring them here at present. He expresses himself as much plessed with this city and val ley and we hope further acquaintances will strengthen that good opinion. V. L. Snelling, who recently re turned from a trip to Burns, Informs ua tbat a largo delegation will come from that place to participate ia tbe meeting of the Central Oregon De velopment League bere next month, He said tbey were going to bring over all tbe available talent of tbe town to take part in tbe doings, and that tbey were contemplating hiring a big auto truck to bring over tbe band. Tbia will be a jnv somewhat unexpected but nevertheless bfgbly appreciated by our people. He aald the only bad feature about tbe trip was the unpardonable condi tion ef tbe road In places across the country between Lakeview and Buroa. lie aaya thla can be greatly eliminated by tbe meana of a comparatively small amount of work and at a normal coat. He aays tbe people of Harney county have offered to prosecute tbe work of leveling down tbe roads if tbey were provided with a road grader. This is a circumstance 'that ia an pleaaant, as we do not want any ob- staclca to atand in tbe way of large delegations visiting us upon this occa sion. Thla road Is soffleieutly travelled to warrant a reasonable expenae to tbe county, in order to place it in a auitable condition for utility. It is to be. hoped the matter will meet with favorable action from tbe county road officials. A NEW RAILROAO MOVEIN CROOK Central Oregon and East ern To Come South To Bend Via Prinevllle Will Visit Burns Burns Times-Herald : According to plana outlined In Sunday's Oregonlan Secretary Chapman of the Portland Commercial Clut la arranging to show Portlsnd delegates to the Lakeview meeting of the Central Oregon De velopment League interior Oregon right. He bas arranged three different routes by wh'ch the Portland people may reach Bend then ho has planned a route tbat will bring the entirn dele gation over to Burns where they will spend one night. From here they go by way of Narrowa and the P. Ranch to Lakeview, going through .Callow Valley. Branch for Parisian Through an advertisement in the Examiner, thia week a deal waa closed between Dick Kingsley and J. Chaa. Smith.of the Parisian Millinery, where the former oonveyed to Mr. Smith a lot in the Kingsley addition to New Pine Creea for the consideration of the latter establishing a branch millinery and ladiea furnishing store on the pro perty. A building will be constructed Im mediately in which to bouse the new business and after tbe return of Mra. Smith from Chicago, where she goes to purcbsse their fall line of goods, a complete stock will be installed. Tbe business will be conducted in conjunc tion with tbeir Lakeview store and Mr. Smith will handle the branch. The next rumored move in nearby railroads circles is the statement ot proposed construction on tbe Central Oregon and Eastern railroad from Me tolioua to Bend, by way of Prinevilie, a distance of about thirty miles, it is said that articles of incorporation have been filed and the steel for tbe work bas been ordered for delivery October 15. One hundred thousand dollara of the stock was subscribed in Prinevilie, while the remainoer will come trom St. Louis. It is begining to look as though too many railroads are beading thia way for us not to get one of tbem. It is not reasonable that Bend would be con tinued the terminal of both thia new extension and the Oregon Trunk, which built to'that town last year, 'lbey will of course connect with the Oregon Eastern, probably near Fort Rock, and with a further extension to join the N.-C.-O. Ry. at Lakeview. would make a railroad net that would tap one of the richest sections of Central and Southern Oregon, and one tbat bas only been waiting for steel rail, connection with out side points. Johnson Easy Winner Owing tor tbe walk-over tbat Jack Johnson had in the fistic contest with Jim Flynn on July 4, at Las Vegss, N. M., the state polio stepped in and stopped tbe Bght during the ninth ound. Little interest was msnifested in the bout because of the one-aided rostch between the fighters, and the crowd left the ringside disgusted. Tbe scrap was decidedly in favor of tbe tig amoke from trie word go, and it is atated tbat he was capable of putting Flynn out at any time he wished. Johnson returned to Chicago and ia quoted aa having said : "1 will meet Palzer or any other before Labor Dav, then I will retire, sure." Palzer ia a heavyweight and classed among the leaders of tbe dsy. It is to be hoped thst he or anybody else will be able to wrench the laurela of tbe world'a heavyweight championship from this tig, burly Negro as he. regardless of his righting abilities, has placed a damper on the once popular sport.

A. Clark, of Garden City, Kansas, pitching a gilt-edged game and Hov, of California, behind the bat. and both being given gingery aopport. the local diamond Sunday wss the scene of one of the best base ball gamea ever pulled off in thia section, when Lakeview crossed bats with tbe Rose- ville team of California. Tbe first inning Roseville went to the bat and aucceeded in capturing two runs; but with this they had to be sat isfied until near the finish of the game. Lakeview did not succeed in getting a run for several innlnes, when they finally copped two which made the con test even tor some time. Tbe next tal ly waa made by the local nine and gave them tbe lead. When Roseville went to the bat in the first half of the ninth inning tbe game was a tie, but they grabbed one more during tbat valuable time and kept Lakeview from making any more when they came up. Thia gave a final score of 4 to 3 in favor of the visitors. The game all the way through until the last belonged to no body and much interest was manifested by tbe audience. The band, which was seated in the grand stand, discoursed music during the amusement. Mr. Clark the pitcher, who haa re cently located with us, bad not pitched aball tor six months, was slightly out of trim, but all tbe way through, play ed a good clean game and deserved considerable credit for the manner in wbiob tbe game was played. The catcher plaved a fast game and waa en tbusisstic to do all tbe work and dur ing his clever maneuvers no errors were noticeable. Tbe Roseville boya displayed good courage and were a very generous lot.
