What docs "Our Joe" want now?
Has ho got something- to sell to Hsr
rlmnnT Docs he Imagine ho can hand
that shrewd gentleman a gold brick
and get the long green for it? Joe
usually doesn't make a move unless
there Is something in It. Why Is he
trying to curry favor with tho mag
nate? If Joe was better informed he could
write more Intelligently. Joe used to'
run what he called a newspaper here
once Un a time and maybe some of
our old residents remember it.
Joe states that Harriman was met at
the wharf by a lot of people he didn't
know. Now, that is not correct,
There were very few people on tho
wharf when Mr. Harriman arrived and
the gentleman looked around ns though
he expected a hand shake from some
Joe doesn't seem to know that the
chamber of commerce ascertained by
wire long before Mr. Harriman reached
hero that that gentleman expressed his
willingness to meet tho citizens of
Klamath Falls at an informal public
reception. Joe does the chamber an
injustice in suggesting that they
Yes, Joe has n real grievance be
cause the editor of the Express helped
to knock out the Klamath Canal Co.
and get the Government In here. Why?
Uccausc Joe was in on the deal and
would cinch the landowner here for
time and eternity if the Express had
not exposed his little came.
With regard to not being so personal
about Mr. Harriman or his methods
Joe evidently doesn't know the tint
rudiments of journalism. He teems to
forget that Mr. Harriman la public
character, as much a public character
ns President Roosevelt is. Not only a
public character, but public servant.
if you please. It is really his duty to
run his railroads for the benefit of the
public and not as a private speculation
and if they (Mr. Harriman and other
railway managers) do not do so the
time will surely come when the people
will own and run them for their own
Joe may bo one of those sycophant
who would subscribe to Harriman'a
veriest whim but, thank God, the editor
of the Express is not in that elaaa, mad
wo believe Mr. Harriman only pities
the man that hasn't backbone enough
to stand up for hi right.
Joe's referenco to San Quentin waa
unfortunate. We did come from with
in a hundred miles of San Quentin, but
have never been behind prison walls.
We trut Joe won't get too near Salem,
or McNeil's Island, rather.

Thero Is some talk of a walking
party to Crater lako and back. It 1
understood that a number of the
local sprlntera expect to take the hike
In order to keep up with the Port
land Y.M.C.A. crowd.
If Klamath Falls la to have a street
carnival this fall now Is the time to
besln. It baa been practically de
cided that tho county will not hold
ralr this fall and, this being tho
case. It leaves tho field opon for a car
nival that would be an attractive fea
ture and would readily replace the
regular annual fair. The matter has
been mentioned on previous occasions
and In every Instance haa met with
favorable consideration. Klamath Is
rapidly coming to the front and In
order to keep pace with the growth
It should give up a week this fall to
a grand carnival. Thero Is every In
dication that the times will be lively
In every way In tho next few months.
Construction camps on the railroad
will be established at the very door
step to the city and the work on tho
Irrigation system will give employ
ment to a larger number than aro
now engaged in the construction of
the canals. Klamath Falls Is In a
position to give a highly successful
canst-! this year and all that Is
needed la to turn the matter over to
tome mas who Is compatsmt to han
dle the asatter. The expense of a
carnival will be light and the result
would be highly satisfactory If those
of other cities may be taken a a criterion.
The bualnesa men who have con
sidered the matter think It not only
feasible, but consider It an appro
priate entertainment to take the
place of the bnnu.M county fair. In
view of the fact that this 'city held
no Fourth of July celebration this
year and that It Is now almost certain
that uo fair or race meet will be'h.ld
It would be voll to take this matter
up at once and devise plans for car
rying It to a successful Issue.
