Subscribe to the Victory Loan I : Uncle Sam Needs the Money.— "Let's Finish the Job" and Do It Right. Victory Loan Campaign is now and will open on Monday, April 21. Let every american citizen in this coun ty consider the conditions of our na tion one year ago when the Third Lib erty Bond sale was opened and with conditions today, when our government calls on us to assist in putting the Fifth Liberty Bond over. The comparison ir» then we were in darkness and doubt in the greatest war that is known in his on tory in ans country. We have every- j c thing to be thankful for, our country is prosperous and our boys are returning °™?* v not put this loan over easier j than any other of the past. WE WILL, for the terms are easier than any one of the others and the life of the bond will only be five years, with an increas ed rate of interest. The best investment in the world, why not loan your credit to your gov ernment when it needs it. you will, the Job." Grangemont Highway F>election. The election for the creation and or ganization of the Grangemont Highway I District, out of a portion of the present i Orofino Highway District, resulted in an almost unanimous vote for the es - tablishment of the proposed new high-1 way district, the vote being 53 for and 2 against its creation. The resident ■ property owners of the new Grange- 1 mont Highway District are interested ; in the improvement and completion, on good grades, of the Whiskey Creek route towards Quarte Creek. This I would give an unusually good road into Headouarters and would he n inio neaaquariers ana would be a scenic drive for autos to Rich Old Pierce. A well built road into the i timber belt would stimulate trade from I I „„j .1 i O.of no and would increase the value , of all farm property along the route. I believe Our slogan, "Let's F'inish J.

Relative t<5 laws governing motor vehicles, I wish to call attention to those owning same, that they must have a license or receipt for same be fore they can lawfully run their cars on I the streets or public highways. Those operating public motor vehicles for hire must acquire a chauffer's license in addition to the motor vehicle tax. The last legislature by the enactment of House Bill No. 131 amended the mo : tor bus law. These amendments bring taxicabs and automobiles operating from garages uoon call within the defi nition of the term of "common carrier" | ir» in and require a bond of $2000 for any person or concern operating five or less cars and a bond of $50)0 for more than fivevehicles and makes the violation of this law a misdemeanor. Applications are to he made through the assessor. These amenements become effective May 8, 1919. Dealers in motor vehicles are requir ed to take out dealer's license amount ing to 135.00 where one make vehicle is handled and an additional fee of $25 for each additional make handled by one establishment in each city, town or village. Dealers cannot operate under a dealer's lincense taken out in another city, town or \ illage. The sheriff, eputy sheriffs, consta bles, police or marshall, game wardens and deputy game wardens are interest ed in the enforcement of the provisions of the laws governing same. So do not go up in the air if some one of these I officers should remind you that your j outo license is due and should be taken j out. John P. Harlan, Assessor. North Fork Highway Dissolution. It is reported that petitions are being j c j rcu j a t e d for the dissolution of the is North Fork Highway District. It is very a p pare nt that the present High way District organizations are not sat j s factorv to the taxpayers, and they are petitioning for transfer back to county management. The pleas of the citizens and tax payers for dissolution of highway districts is an evidence of dissatisfaction in highway administra- 1 tion methods, and, apparently, is al- ! most reasonable proof of the rejection of any proposed bond issue under I highway management. Miss Agnes Read and Mr. Arthur Frear were married in Orofino, Sun- ! day, April 0. Miss Read is a sister of I Mrs. C. A. Krogh, wife of the Northern i Pacific station agent.
