"The Great Northern Railway is
preparing to feature the products of
Oregon at the Minneapolis Land
Show," said E. C. Leedy, General Im
migration Agent of the Great Northern
Railway, after hla return from the
west recently. "The results achieved
bv this kind of advertising in the past
haa been highly successful and we are
thoroughly convinced that bringing
the products of the west to the people
of the east is the roost effective and
modern method of advertising the agri
cultural possibllitea ot any country.
The representatives of the Immigra
tion Department are canvassing every
community in the state of Oregsn col
lecting grains in the straw, grasses,
vegetables and in fact all producta of
the soil. They are co-operating with
the Commercial Clubs, responsible real
estate men and the 1 armors who are
growing the crops. The thorough man
ner in which this collecting of exhibits
la being followed insures us the great
est collection of agricultural and horti
cultural products that has ever been
assembled by Any railway.
The very beat and choicest samples
will be shown at the Minneapolis Land
Show, where thousands of homeseek
rra and lnveors will visit. Our rep
resentatives are meeting with great
success, aa the local people along the
entire line appreciate more than ever
the great benefit of the wide publicity
which is given our particular section
through this medium of advertising.
The Northwest Land Show at Minnea
polis will mark a new epoch in the his-
torv of agricultural and horticultural
exhibits. Undoubtedly this will te the
greatest collection of products of the
soil ever assembled under one roof and
the Great Northern country are certain
to bemong the leading attractions."
Lake County haB already sent aome
samples of cereala for thia exhibition.
They were exhibited in the High
School building at the Convention. It
waa then too early in the BeaHun to se

Eight pieces of the Lakeview band
were employed to furnish musio
throughout the day and the class of
musio, appreciable anywhere, waa
made doubly ao by the open air and
zephyr breezes that whispered through
the pines.
Tents were stretched to house that

There Should Be a Good
Turn Out for the Elec
tion of Officers
Owing to last Monday being a holi
day no meeting of the Lakeview Cora
mecial Club was held in the evening
and cards have been sent out by Secre
tary Everett announcing a meating for
next Monday night September 9. At
this meeting offices will be elected
for the ensuing year and it is hoped
that everyone who can will be present.
Thia meeting will be held in the city
hall and will convene at eight o'clock.
It is quite probable that before that
date a canvass of the town will be
made in an effort to secure the aenti
ment of the Dublio in regard to the best
method for the maintainance of a
Commecial Club and to get people's
views aa to who will make the bent
officials to be put in charge of the
work. However the most important
mission of the canvass will be to get
the people interested in this matter of
vital importance to the e ommunity
and try to encourage them enough to
at least attend the next mooting. If
thia can be done and a good turn out
attends more enthusiasm will be mani
fested, and it la felt that thin will lead

Sunshine Twins Leasing
Co. Hit Ore That Aver
ages $1300
Elmer C. A bis trom, treasurer of
the Sunnhine Twins Leasing Co., re
ceived information that another rensa-
tional strike had been mace this week
on their property at High Grade.
The following message was sent from
the hill by Superintendent Hager:
New strike, pens into thousands.
Ore chute coming in. Looks immense."
The strike waa made in the breast of
the main tunnel, 270 feet from the en
trance and only eighty feet below the
surface. It is said that pieces of rock
taken from random from the strike are
full of gold, the averaga ot which as
sayed over $1300. The vein is making
ita appearance in the floor of the tunnel
and panninga of the ore indicate great
er values than have ever been taken
from the mine.
This news comes as good cheer from
the High Grade Mines and substantiates
former reports as to the merits of the
district. The Sunshine Twins leasing
company has secured an extension of
t!sie on their lease on the original Sun
shine propertv and now have their
holdings secure- for the next thirty
months. This is considered a very
liberal lease and givea ibe promoters
ample time to work their property to
a good profit.

Portland Delegates Say
Trip to Lakeview Beats
Yellowstone Park
Portland Telegram : With tne bark
peeled off their faces by the wind and
sun turn of the, desert, the Portland
delegates to the Central Oregon De
velopment Congress at Lakeview, have
returned home to soothe their pucker
ed, features in cold cream cans and
vaseline pots. Some of the boys look
like boiled lobsters and the more chub
bv ones have faces that would cass for
ripe tomatoes at a courty fair.
Witness O. M. Plummer, of the Port
land Stock Yards.
He and his party made a tour of
fully 1000 miles by automobile and he
says that for natural wonders, beauty
and charm, the trip reveals more ma
iestio and inspiring scenic attraction
than he ever saw in Yellowstone Park
or any of the other hieh-priced Sum
mer resorts of the land.
In the party were Pr sident W. J.
Kerr, of the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege : Professor Van Winkle, of tLe
United States Geological Survey:
Joseph M. Healy. W. H. Chapin, R.
G. Calvert and P. S. Jackson. They
shipped their cars to The Dalles and
motored the rest of the way. Among
the high sp ts which they hit on the
journey were Wamic, Tvgh
Maupin, Antelope, Gateway,
Plains, Metolius, Prineville,
stone. Burns, Silver Creek, Warner
Mountain, Warner Lakes, Lakeview,
Klamath Falls, Crater Lake and Bend.
Educationally and entertainingly,
the trip was a grand success, but gas
tronomically, the boys brought home
a pang or two ot dissappointment. The
hospitable ranchers and peoole along
the route gorged them on Spring chick

Portland Party Makes a
Heavy Investment
After Short Visit
' Aa an instance of real good that was
accomplished in Lakeview during fh
meeting of the Central Oregon Devel
opment League, thia week a deal was
closed by H. W. Drenkel & Son for the
sale of the George Jammerthal comer
on Water and Canyon streets, where
the Brewery saloon stands, also includ
ing the Drenkel office on Canyon
The property was purchased by A. B.
Manley, of Portland, whose first trip
to Lakeview was week before last.
As exclusively stated before in the Ex
aminer, Mr. Minley did not reacn here
in time for the League Covention, ha
having come by way of Crater Lake
and was delayed on the road. However,
he stayed here a few days and while
here expressed himself aa being well
pleased with Lakeview, and now that
be haa rods a substantial investment
is conclusive evidence that he has full
confidence in the future of tne place.
At present no changes are announced
to take place in the property and for
the time beinsr it ia expected that the
eame tenants will occupy the ground.
Biick Work orv-tvfr-SUiss
Will Be Completed By
End of the Week
Work on the large Heryford brick
and eteel structure is pushing forward
at a'rapid gate. The brickwork on the
North and East walls will be complet
ed this week, regardless of some delay
caused in the supply of brick. Repress
ed brick is being used for finishings,
which is being manufactured on the
yard below town. The delay in this
material has been caused principally by
the heavy damp weather of late.
Supervisor Underwood stated yester
day that if all nc-cessary brick waa
available the building would be com
pletely enclosed within thirty days. He
also said that work would begin in a
few daya on the lath and plastering on
the third floor, aod that the roofing
could seon be started. The plumbing
under the supervision of K. T. Baldwin
is advancing smoothly and is moving
in accordance with the remainder of
the work. Of couse after the building
ia once enclosed inside work can pro
ceed without interruption, and the big
building will be ready for occupancy
before we realize it.
C. L. Smith of O.-W. R.& N.
Says Lakeview Meeting
Was Far Reaching
Oregon Journal : By far the best
and the moat permanently far reaching
in its benefits of all development meet
ings ever held in Oregon was the Lake
view Development league meeting,
says C. L. Smith, agriculturist of the
O.W.R. & N. ompany who has iust re
turned from its attendance.
"It put into effeot the truth we have
been trying to have lodged for a long
time that if you want to teach a farm
er agriculture you must get out on the
farm and show him how. Education
by demonstration those are the words.
"Tiij agreement at Lakeview was
that I'wf hJ been too much litera
ture and not enough ot this practical
education, hut that hereafter the new
; poll. , .. .n . o a.'iiveiy uiu buieuy
adhered to. And that means good for
j tune for the state of Oregon.
