Interesting Grange Meeting.
That the state should not expend
more than $250,000 for advertising
its products at the Panama-Pacific
exposition in San Francisco in 1915
was the decision of the Pomona
Grange of this county at Welcome
last week. All the grangers in ses
sion were of the belief that the state
should be represented, but opinions
to the amount that should be ex
pended varied. ,
The estimate of the state expo
sition commission totals $500,000
and is detailed as follows:
Buildings, furnishings and equip
Exhibit, assembling, preparing
and returning $150,000.
Maintenance, administration and
general expenses, $125,000.
State publicity and exploitation,
Th Item most objected to at the
grange meeting was $150,000 for
buildings and equipments. The gen
eral opinion was that $25,000 was
enough for that purpose. Many
of the members favored Fruit In

a big, modern barn for exhibit pur
It was not so much the size of
the proposed appropriation that
scared the farmers, as it was a lack
of confidence In the men who will
have the spending of it The grange
members do not believe it is neces
sary to have big banquets and dress
suit balls and functions to proper
ly advertise the state and they ex
pressed that the commission would
use a large part of the $125,000 for
maintenance and administration in
that manner. One of them said:
"It Isn't the swallow-tailed clasg

for. They will never clear many
acres of stumps if we get them.

The new board refuses to sanc

Thomas' three deputies. The shei

to the board, but was shortly giv
en to understand that the members
were men who knew their business
and would not stand for interfer
ence. Since being turned down, the
sheriff has asked for a grand Jury
then he requested a hearing beforo
the commissioners, and now bis
friends are circulating a petition in
the county in an endeavor to show
that his action Is meeting with the
approval of the voters. It Is a well
known fact that any old petition will
receive signers, but Thomas is in

Just how "bad" will appear later.
Otherwise, everything is moving a

On Tuesday there was a light (all
of snow and on Wednesday night
beginning sometime after eleven o'-
clock one of the heaviest snow falls
ever known in this section began,
and on Thursday morning something
like eight inches had been added to
the covering already on the ground.
A heavy wind accompanied the beau
tiful on Its downward Journey. The
temperature during the recent snow
storms has, however, not been low
enough to cause any great inconve
nience, ranging in the neighborhood
of 20 above most of the time, and
the lowest point reached being 14.
Mr. George B. Taylor who has re
sided here for the past
years states that there is more snow
on the ground at the present time
than he has ever known.
