BOND ISSUE DEFEATED SEWER PLAN VOTED DOWN BY NEARLY TWO TO ONE Total Votes Polled 228, With 82 In Favor; 146 AgainstProposition Strenuously Opposed By Many Interests By Vote of almost two to one Lake view last Saturday defeated the bond issue for the proposed sewer system for the city. Tbe total number of Votes polled waa 228, out of which J46 votes opposed while 82 were in favor of tbe issue. At the last city eleoton of offi cers 207 votes were oast, which was ex ceeded at the bond election by 21 votes. The election last Fall waa considered the most lively one ever held in Lake view but the bond issue succeeded in getting out more voters than there were then. The issue was bitterly opposed by some of the larger interests rf the town while those supporting the plan made little or no effort to make it car ry. It waa clearly evident from a few hours after the polls opened how the election was going. On the same day and under Identically the aame plana, the little town of Bend to our North voted on a $60,000 bond Issue for a sew age avstem and out of the 143 votes Notices Great Change "WTH." Shirk, president of the First National Bank, of Lakeview, went to KUmath Falls Iat week to meet bia brother, Andrew J. Shirk and family, of Kansaa City, Mo. Thev returned to Lakeview Friday and Mr. and Mrs. A. J. and son spent week visiting here, they leaving for LosAngelMnthis morn ing. Mr. Shirk waa formerly engaged In the atock business in f Harney County. and had not been in Lakeview for several years. He ia : now in the gravel and cement roofing business in Kansas City. He noticed .numerable changes that have taken place since hia last visit and was greatly pleased with the many advanccmentsthat bave taken place during hia absence. BAND DANCE WAS SOCIALSUCCESS Did Not Receive Patronage That The Purpose Warranted 1 be open air dance given last Fri day night by the Lakeview Commer cial Club on the aecond floor of the new Ueryford building waa a thorough suc cess eocially, but some little disap pointment waa met on tbe financial end. Tbia is partially attricuted tJ tbe aomewhat inclemency of tbe weather during tbe afternoon, at rain threaten ed to interfere, wbicb would bava caus ed post pon men t of the feativitiea. Therefore, several were skeptical about making preparations for tbe dance and waited ao long upon tbe weather man that it waa too late to attend. About 70 tickets were aold at II 50 each and thie with tbe amount received from spectators made tbe total autn near SI 14. Ibe band waa paid H5 which expense plua incidentals in cluding wiring, floor wax, etc., left tbe Club a net profit of a little over 50. Tbe band boys proudly acquitted themselves in furnishing tbe muale, and tbe time they played waa tbe theme of praise for all the dancers' Everybody waa overjoyed to learn that tbe band could produce aucb splendid muaic for dancing. And it waa not alone appreciated by those dancing aa it held a large audience scattered around tbe vioinity of tfie building until a late hour. While tbe floor waa not con structed for dancing only, It waa not entirelv bad and waa soon wore down to a respectable condition. Tbe wea ther Droved ideal for aucb an occasion and the happy crowd made merry un til th clock chimed three in the morn ii'g. cast, only 24 were agalnts tbe issue. A dispatch from Bend to the Ore gonian aaya in part : "Within 60 daya the bonds will be aold, and before Winter Beta In, con struction of the system started. Five milea of line will be laid. Tbe dis posal plant will be located northeast of town, and sewage will be used for farming purposes." Numerous objections were raised against a eewer system, some contend ing that it waa premature, while others picked flaws in the submitted plana and others arguing that it would create too heavy indebtedness for tbe town. Some objected to the twenty year bond ing system, and during the day discus sions were rife discouraging the idea. However, all contend that a aewcage system for Lakeview is necessary, and since the election, rumors are in the air that it is probable the opposing ele ment will undertake to fatnom plana that will meet with more popularity. Musical Tonight The musical program prepared by tbe L.C.I. Club, which waa to have been given over a week ago but waa post poned on account of the death of J. N. Watson, will be given tomorrow night in the Smith Picture House, Mr. Smith having donated the hall to the ladies for this purpose. An interesting program has been arranged which includes the best musi cal talent ot the city, and all patrons are assured of the full value of their money. The proceeda as stated before will tart a fund with which to buy a street sprinkler for the town and this cause la sufficient to justify the ex pectation of a generous attendance.

Open aeason for all water fowl, Sep tember 1 until March 8. Limit of ducks 25 per day or in 7 consecutive daya. No limit on geeae. Tbe matter ot closing tbe duck aeaaon on January 1 or March 8 cauaed some debate. A vote waa taken which (bowed each aide ot those present to be practical!, even. Tbia ia a matter for discussion and later when ducks and geese become less numerous it will quite likely be necessary to keep the season closed in the Spring. However there were some plausible arguments offered to oppose this idea and this law will probably re main intact for some time. Snipe, open season August 1, until December 1. Limit 25 in a day or in seven consecutive daya. . Quail, tbe same aa it ia under tbe present laws. JOHN N.

However be aaid the trout egga could be trans ported and assured oa that they ; eeeld be bad for the asking. He will alae take op the matter of stocking the O.
