Not to bo outdone by the J.owden
supporters, the advocates of Leonard
Wood for president have decided to
form an organization for Klamath
county and with that end in view aj
meeting will bo held in the council
chamber this evening. Walter L.I
Toozc, who Is here In behalf of the
candidacy of General Wood,- will ad
dress thn mooting. Tho fpllowjng
epitomizes Mr. Tooze's estimate of
the candidacy of the man he .wants
to rce In the White Heuse:
We support Leonard Wood for, the
presidency because his ' record 'la
Cuba as Governor Genernaad'in'tJie
Philippines prove htm to be one of
the most masterly and successful
executives of modern times. Aa Gov
ernor; General' of Cuba,' he found a
country disrupted; disorganized-aad
seething) with thevcune' of' yellow
fever,, with not a pubUc'scbool on tne
Island, under the power of bis ag
gressive, ceaseless' and untiring' lead
ership, the scourge- of .yellow feyer
was erauicatea nor only irom Cuba,
but from the entire world. '
A stable government waa firmly
established and when his work was
finished he left behind blm one of
the most sanitary and best governed
republics on the Western Hemis
phero. Moreover, 275,000 children
were attending the publlcsT5h"oofs' of
Cuba. -. i
He was almost immedlatelypalled
for a like duty In the Moro Province
pf the Philippines, where for 400
years Spain had fought with' the na
tives to establish at leasta' seml
clvlllzed government aqd had failed.
Tafc was Governor General of the
Philippines, and Leonard Wood's
duty was to establish a civilized and
aane government InTthai country of
Malay, pirates, slave dealers: Mohom
Jtoedans and Christians, and he did It
after suffering untold 'prjjatlq'lja w'Jth"

them this nation-owa a'debt of grat-
uuae never can repay. Lest
we forget, Wood and his two ions
were In the late war. and ever stood
ready to do and die ton-pur beloved
country. We are proud' that Gene'r-
al Wood, who has. come9 up from Che
ranks, is recognized as at B military
genius "not only in America but tho
world over. With the- ' Bolshevists,
anarchists,- communists and the I. W.

ning rampant in this .nation and.
threatening the destruction, of the
American government am, the low
ering of the American. Flag, whom
do tho. voters desire for, President?
Surely not aiplumber, anartbit, or.a

who haa proven on the" field of ac
tion .that he is a. great, executive and
a peerless- organizer of good, govern

many ways.
C. J. Mcintosh, agricultural prefs
editor, who is well acquainted- with
the people and conditions of the
county predicts that Klamath Falls
will be as large as Spokane, within
10 or 15 years.
Klamath has the largest body 'of
merchantable timber on the coast
which represents an Immense source
of income. Great waste is being ac- ,
complished, however, through thB
work of Insects.
"A board walk four feet wide and
reaching from Portland to New Yerk:
could be constructed from all of. the
timber that was destroyed In Klam
ath county last year by the yellow
pine beetle," declares A. L- Lovett,
professor of entomology. . .,

The snow .storm has played havoc
with the .pig .rodeo, that was to have
been held in' Merrill tomorrow, and
as a consequence It has been .in
definitely' postponed. The racetrack

was such as to encourage the big
attendance that was expected It the
present storm had not occurred.
The postponement ot the,; rodep,
however, will have no effect upon

which will be held in the Merrill

Robert Ryan, the young logger
who escaped from the guard taking

and after being recaptured es
caped' again by leaping from a
moving train near Macdoel while be

The Macdoel constable who
