"Col. Butler was sittinir with other
officers, citizens and me in front of

Wants Autos to Bear
Heaviest Cost of Roads
C. C. Chapman, publisher of the
Oregon Voter, at Portland, is submit
ting the following resolution fur the
consideration of Granges, Farmers'
Unions and Commercial clubs:
Whereas, the wear on Oregon roads
is caused principally by automobile
Whereas, the improvement of
through highways is of direct benefit
to automobile owners, in saving tire
and other expense, and
Whereas, automobile owners as a
class are liberally disposed toward road
improvement and will endure an in
crease of auto liclense fees if the pro
ceeds are to be expended by the state
for permanent improvement of through
roods, therefore be it
Kesolved, that we recommend to the
1917 General Assembly of the stato of
Oregon the ensotment of such legisla

from automobile license fees, same to
be the basis for providing interest aud

GRAIN BAOS FIRMER
Portland, Ore., July 22. The graiu
bag market is becoming more active and
at the same time appears to be gaining
in strength. Inquiries have been in
creasing lately and a few sales of good
sir.e have been reported. Farmers as a
class have held back their purchases
until the eleventh hour, and the belated
demand, in the opinion of dealers, can
have no other effect than to strengthen
prices inasmuch as the statistical po
sition of the market has not improved.
The supply of bags for the coming crop
is practically all in hand and the same
shortage that was figured out early in
the season still exists. If anything it
has been increased as crop estimates
have been enlarged. The one uncertain
factor in the situation is tho bulk ship-

"I think a lot of ginger is neces

and have a great picnic at Marshfield
ana advertise it."
Hal D. Patton, another exhorter for
more ginger nnd get-up among the
Cherrians, thought the members should
show more interest in everything.
"Let's make this excursion a howling
success, or just quit," he said.
With these few preliminary remarks
tendifig to arouse the spirit of tho mem
bers, everybody nt once showed a won
derful revival of the days when the
Cherrians did things. The excursion to
Marshfield is not only to be a Cherrian
excursion, but the spirit was present
to mnko it one of the biggest events
of the year. With other excursionists
at Marshfield, it was evident that Sa
