Th s dance was originally intended as a feature of a two days' Fourth of July celebration, but the latter hav ing been abandoned, it was determin ed to celebrate in honor of the com ing of the new railroad and the danc ing project was continued. In order to assure the public of an affair that would be properly con ducted. Jesse T. Mills was induced to accept the chairmanship of the log committee that it was necessary to have in order to cover the dancing "floor" and these young men were named as tiis assistants: Fred Stark, J. C. Sams, Jesse Leverick, Frank Miller, Harry Howell, Krnest Jeffers, Fred Miller, H. L. Whiting, Marcus Staman, Herman Stauff, Claude Flesher, Roy Smith, Thuron Wilson, Wendell Raymond, I.ouis Morgan, Mike Lennon, Fred Sullivan, Albert Galloway, Everett Craig, Earl Fields, Fred Anderson, Charley Miller, James Mitchell, Art Scobey, Charles B. Wood, Olot' Simenson, Fred Agatz, Ray Perring, Clay Buchan, Fred Per kins, C. E. Chamberlin, George Olson, Herb Kane, Hubert Mann, Hugh N. Sticklin and J. J. Ward. No "Rough Stuff" Permitted. In addition to the floor committee ■ix special policemen, two to each block, will be present to see that neither dancers nor spectators are annoyed by those who have mixed ideas of fun and "rough stuff." In order to defray the expenses of the big band, the construction of a tem porary band stand, talcum, special police and other incidentals, dance tags have been placed on sale in a number of business houses on Fourth and Main streets at 50 cents each anu all dancers and as many spectators as are enjoying the celebration will be expected to wear them. ONLY ONE BILL IS SURE OF A VOTE (Continued from page 1.) Roads association road tax bill, filed only a week ago, admittedly has such a late start that its chances are ex tremely slight. The legislative reap portionment bill petitions will be cir culated to a considerable extent at the special election in Seattle, June 30, but It is doubtful, even if suffi cient signatures could be obtained during this one day, if the city regis tration officials could check all the signatures before July 3, when peti tions must be filed with the state authorities. Anticipating the failure of the "seven sisters" measures to find pla ces on the ballot, preparations are be ing made to draw up measures cover ing much the same ground, for pre sentation te the next legislature. Bills In Prospect. The member of the "seven sisters" group that has commanded most at tention has been the bill proposing to add a "first-aid clause," providing medical attendance for injured work men, to the compensation act. A re vision of the state fish code, with a view toward increasing the revenue obtained by the state from the fish eries industry, undoubtedly will be recommended by State Fish Commis sioner Darwin. A blue sky bill of some character that is likely to be constitutional also is a probability. If the prohibition measure is the only one to appear on the ballot as is now expected uy many, it will mean a great saving to the state. The I 1913 legislature appropriated $300,- 000 for use of the secretary of state in this work on the basis of $15,000 a measure. Much more than $15,000 will have been expended if only the ■ prohibition bill goes on, owing to so much preparatory work in the office, but if no other measure makes good ts petitions, it is likely that $250,000 of the $300,000 will revert -> the general fund. Mr. and Mrs. C. J. Lord and Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Springer went to Se attle Thursday in the former's car, where they joined President M. F. Backus of the National Bank of Commerce and party and proceeded to Bellingham where they were the guests at dinner of President B. W. Purdy of the First National bank of that city, and Mrs. Purdy. The latter then joined the party on a tour to Vancouver, Nanimo, Alberta and Vic toria, in British Columbia. They ex pect to return in about a week. * * * • Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Phillips have returned from their honeymoon trip. • • * • Miss Irene Harris has returned from Los Angeles, Cal., where she at tended the Girls' Collegiate school. mm H m hbb ■■ HH For the third time ai oil strata has been struck at our well near Tenino. This time the I n strata was a short distance above the 1,500 foot level. It shows up strong. Friday even- I fefi H |H ing, when the strati was first drilled into, the oil showed strong on the bailings as they flow- H P ed down into Scatter Creek. This showing of oil, coming as it does under a flow of salt I M water and at a fair depth, should be a big pay sand and in a few days, when the salt water I B has been shut off so that the drill may be driven on into the oil sand, it is possible South- B H west Washington will be the big new field and the big boom will be on. Don't take any- I ■ Now, what are we going to de about the stock? you ask. Here it is. We are going to I H sell the 50,000 shares of stock to get funds to properly handle the business of the company. I ; B 15,000 shares will go at 25 cents. Applications of old stockholders will be given pref- I ■ erence. The remainder will be sold, but at advanced prices and we expect to get par or I ■ above for the last 20,000 shares. B B Now, don't buy stock unless you want to make some money. V/e have had all your B B sympathy we need. Men of wealth have favored us with their well wishes and held on to their B B cash but now the Crescent Oil stockholders have won success and though money is still need- B B This is the time when you buy for your own sake. The pioneering has been done. Get- B B ting that first 15,000 shares at 25 cents is just like findi g money, for those who buy. B B Now there is too much to do to spend time talking ab ut this discovery. Go out to the B fl well, look, and if you wa tto get in, come back to Olymp a and leave your money and order. B B Don't wait to talk this over with Williamson—he's to busy. Your order will be taken B B care of at the office, where you can call at any time from 8a.m.t06 p. m. B B Nobody is going to tease you to buy, but it is your chance and you should buy early. B i ■ I Crescent Oil Co. I I By EMERY C. WILLIAMSON, Secretary-Treas. I B 126 EAST FOURTH ST. OLYMPIA, WASH.
