and will open on Monday, April 21.
Let every american citizen in this coun

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
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.
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

scenic drive for autos to Rich Old
Pierce. A well built road into the i
timber belt would stimulate trade from I

of all farm property along the route.

Attention Motor Vehicle Owners.
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" |
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
officers should remind you that your j
outo license is due and should be taken j
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
Miss Agnes Read and Mr. Arthur
