Lumbering, agriculture, stock rais

contributing factors to that future,
have made strides that, undoubtly,
nre legarded as phenomenal as has
been the internal development of
Klamath county nnd of Its metropolis
commercially, under the handicap of
limited transportation facilities, and
so accustomed have its people be
come to that progress under adverse
conditions that, unconsciously, they
hnvo assumed a lethargic attitude
toward recent nrtivitles that bid fair
to further handicap, if not halt, our
internal development. There is .1
disposition to blandly smilo at
schemes of operation that if allowed
to go to a consummation, would sub
ordinate the development of tho
whole industrial development of the
county to one element or factor.
U has beon said, and truly said,
that the Internal problems having to
do with the development of Klamath
county, should be faced with ppon-

and dispassionately and that done
which will be for the best Interests
of the entire conuty, not for the ms
