That it was the largest, most successful and j s;lmp prel,entod to the various bodies most enjoyame meeting in tne nistory .,.. enumerated of the organization Is universally con ceded and it was apparently with much regret that the convention was adjourned last evening at 10 o'clock, following the election of officers and the selection of the next place of meeting.

He Is from Vale and was escorted to the chair by J H. Dobbin of Wallowa county ami Dr. S W. McClure of Pendleton. J. H. Dobbin of Joseph, was named as vice president, ovation to Smythe. Probably the greatest ovation of the evening was tendered to Dan P. Smythe, when the nominations for secretary were reached.

The executive committee was then named as follows: Alex Mcintosh of Crook county; E. P. Cranston, Baker; Gcorg J. Currln, Morrow; H. C Rooper, Wasco; S. B. Barker, Gil liam; J. N. Burgess, Umatilla.

The following resolution referred to the present convention: Whereas, at our last annual meet ing, the Umatilla County Woolgrow ers' association extended to our as sociation a most cordial Invitation to hold our next annual convention In the city of Pendleton, and assured us that Its citizens would give us a whole-souled welcome, and royal en tertainment. Thanks the City. We cannot adjourn without ex pressing our appreciation of their hospitality, which has exceeded our most sanguine expectation. Our ev ery want has been anticipated and provided for. while our business has been expedited by the conveniences and accommodations they have fur nished. Our leisure moments have been occupied to the limit by the rec reations they have so generously pro vided. Feeling that our thanks arc due to all the citizens of the fair city of Pendleton Tor their generous treat ment, It Is Hereby Resolved, that the Oregon Wnolgrowers' association In convention assembled, by. this1 reso lution, do hereby thank the city of Pendl ton, the Umatilla w.migrow ers' association, the Pendleton Com mercial association, and more partic ularly its able and efficient commit tee on entertainment and prra:ig ment for their unsparing efforts to provide for our every want and com fort. We have met them with pleas ure and we part with henrtfelt re gret, looking forward to the day when wo may la some slight measure re ciprocate their hospitality. And further we would express our thanks to the disinterested gentle men who have so unselfishly contrib uted to the success of this meeting by lands and owned by private Individu als and are, therefore, hard for the government officials to handle; And Whereas, we believe In the principle of the preservation of our national forests for future generations and are not opposed to the forestry pojlcy In their endeavor to protect the forest lands from being destroy ed of their timbered wealth. We Therefore Recomnrend, that before eliminating the fully timber ed lands within the national forests. the government officials first elimi nate lands within said forests which are not timbered or which are sparse ly timbered.
