all patrons as in this capacity Mr
'Ahlstrom has served the public in a
most creditable and satisfactory
manner. His resignation grows out
of the improbability of reappoint

change in administration. Hut if ef

were considered his hold on the job
would be everlasting.

lloyt Ixuts to Town
Friday night In a game charactcr
Uod by a sllppory floor, frequent
shootlnK. and little scoring, the
Lakevlew Atheletlo Club lUsket
Hall team scored a victory over the
High School quintet by a scoro of
28 to S3.
Local fans had the club scheduled
for an easy victory. However the
"dope" can was upset, and the game
remained In doubt until the final
whistle. The High School took the
tip off and ten swonds later had re
gistered a field goal. They maintain
ed this lead until the end of the
first half, the score standing 13-12.
In the second half a climax wus
worked up which ended only with
the final whistle. The Club tightened
up their guarding system and un
covered a burst of speed which the
High School lads were unable to
cope with, taking the lead away
from them and holding It to the end.
The close score to which the High
School held the Club, was due to
superior team work of the school
boys, and to the lightening passing
and foot-work of Corbett and Hart
ling, followed up by Dunbar" con
sistency In finding the basket.
For the Club, no one man In par
ticular starred, although the consis
tent playing of Walt Dykeman at
forward, and Carl Fetch at Center
should be mentioned.
The game throughout was hard
fought but clean. From start to
finish the enthusiasm of the specta
tors was Intense, while from the bal
cony came the frequent Rah Itahs
of the High School Rooter Boctlon.

West's Kfforts Futile
Governor West was notified by At
torney Goneral McReynolds that no
delay would be permitted In the pro
posed suit by the Government to dis
solve the Central Pacific and South
ern Pacific merger. The Governor
contended that such action would
bo extremely detrimental to the
State's interests, but in reply the At
torney Genenl declared tho merger
was In violation of tho law and It
was his duty to enforce the law In
every particular, whether such en
forcement was against the Interests
of the country most affected or not.
The same appeals as of Governor
West have been made by publicity
bodies all over Oregon and Califor
nia but it would seem that the At
torney General Is determined to
force the Issue without delay.
OUTLOOK IS BRIGHT
Continued from first pae
at once. The general conditions In
the East, according to ndviceH Just
at hand are described as follows:
"In view of tho fact that last year
was notable for the lack of contract
ing, the movement of the past week
finds no parallel for two years or
more back. The conditions at pre
sent seem favorable, provided it is
the intention to make a quick turn
over of the wool secured. Stocks of
territory wool are rapidly disappear
ing, so that buyers ought readily to
be found for good selections from
the 1814 clip. The fact that foreign
market are bo firm assures control
of the domestic markets by the home
woolgrowers for a period longer
than had been anticipated.
"Furthermore, the goods market
Is favorable to a good demand for
some time. Confidence is much
greater now than when the new tar
iff rates became operative on goods,
which finds reflection in the demand
for mils for the raw material. The
principal buyers continue to be re
presentative of tho large mills. It
Is said that they have bofipoken sub
stantial lots of desirable woohi.
Now lines of heavy weight woolen
goods are Just being opened and tho
trade feels hopeful of tho results,
which tho wool trade also is Inter
ested to Hoe."
The situation In Nevnda Is thus
summed up by the Reno Gazente:
Much cry and llttlo wool seems to
be the statement of the :mrlet In

It is said he has run against a practi

will not go out of this vicinity under
14 cents. Kuyers have Intimated a
wlllngness to talk business around
12 and 12 1-2 cents but there has
been little of that sort of conversa
tion. This condition In view of tho fact
that last year's prices around this
time ruled in the nelgoborhood of
14 1-2 cents does not cause tho lo
cal wool men much worry over low
prices. It Is said that one shipment
of 35,000 pounds went out of Hum
bolt county last week ot 10 cents
but it is added It wus old wool, twice
handled and showed signs iu the
bales of depreciation.
From now on until about the mid

scouting around now to see how

tho tariff as a sentiment and they
