OCTOBER 31. ll SUBSCRIPTION RATES 0Ym SU Month. Thr.. Meolhe .... S2.00 1.00 To the Voters and Tax payers of Harney County. Through the courtesy of Mr. J. W. Biggs, I have been permitted to read a circular which is to be distributed by J. F. Mahon for ! the purpose of injury to my can- rdidacy for the office of County No County Judges Elected This Year According to the decision of the supreme court there will be no election of county judges held in this state at the November election. This decision claims the judges elected before hold over until the next general elect ion. The names of J. R. Jenkius and H. C. Levens are on the bal lot for the judgeship and no doubt electors will vote on them but it will not be counted, or ra ther neither will be entitled to the position as Judge Thompson will hold the place until 1916. High School Foot Ball Team Lost and Won The Harney County High School football team was defeated at Prarie City last Saturday after noon but were victorious at John Day. The boys were nicely treated and the papers over there state the games were clean and sportsmanlike. They returned home early Monday morning and Principal Shirk announces the Prairie High School team expets to be here for a return game on Saturday, Nov. 14.

T. Hughe I, and Assessor J as. Done gan. It was presented in good faith and with the honest endeavor to have the assessment raised on a class of property which we think is valued far too low snd not in proportion with other property in the county. The refusal of the request and the failure of our efforts were accomplished partly through the action and vote of Clerk R. T. Hughet, who holds his position not by the expressed will of the voters but by appointment, and whose election to this office this Fall will be a ratification of this act. Do the taxpayers of Harney County uphold such action? To the Voters of Harney County, In asking for you' support in the coming election, I invite the public inspection of my work during the time I held the posi tion of County Surveyor, knowing my record will compare very fav orably, both as to efficiency of work and amountof expenditures, with that of any one who has ever held that office in this county. If elected I shall endeavor to give prompt and efficient service, with proper consideration to economy of county funds, and a square deal to everyone. I consider myself a permanent resident of the county having lived here, with the exception of the time spent in school, since early boyhood. I have grown up with the country. I know its needs. My interests are all here. I am backed neither by political clique nor ring, but stand on my own merits as being thoroughly com petent and ask your assistance in electing a Harney County boy.

Song Recital November 12 The Treble Clef Club will pre sent Mrs. Lulu Dahl Miller, Portland's favorite contralto in a song recital on Thursday evening, November 12th at 8:30 o'clock, at Tonawama, Mrs. Miller is a favorite singer, and her work gives rare pleasure as is evidenc ed by the following from the Oregenian: "Rare indeed was the pleasure afforded the members of the Monday Musical Club and their friends at the Multnomah Hotel ballroom last Monday morning, when Mrs. Lulu Dahl Miller, contralto soloist, appeared before them in recital. Mrs. Miller's programme was a varied one and sung in English. It ranged from the exquisite "Sea Pictures," by Elgar, to the stately "Persian Garden" number, "The Worldly Hopes Men Set Their Hopes Upon." In this number the sym path eti quality of the singer's vok as shown with fine effect. "I. is Than the Cloud," written by Harold Vincent Milligan, was sung with charming tenderness and had to be repeated. Mrs. Miller was given a well-deserved ovation at the conclusion of her programme." Also from the Lewiston paper: "Mrs. Miller's contralto is charmingly beautiful. It is rich ana meiiow, ana wnen once heard is never to be forgotten. "When Mrs. Miller sang To night', the enthusiasm rose to its highest pitch, and now the first encore of the evening was forced, the charming singer appearing and giving 'An Irish Love Song.' " The purpose of the protest was to have the valuation, as fixed by the County Assessor, of $2.50 on sheep raised to $3.00 per head and tue valuation of $20.00 on cattle raised to $36.00 per head; at time the protest wss filed Mr. Mahon was asked his opinion aa to whether or not proper valuations had been placed on land, he at that time stated that he thought land was about right; this pro test was denied by unanimous ac tion of the Board of Equalization after careful consideration and comparison, using the valuation on land as the basis. An exam ination of the assessment roll sat isfied me that land was not as sessed at more than 60 per cent of its value and therefore that it would be unjust to raise the valuation on livestock with out at the same time raising the valua tion on land, in this matter the Board made the following recommendateon: "This Board, realizes that many changes in the relative val ue of lands have occurred since the survey and classification made in 1909, and we would respect fully recommend to the County Court of Harney County that pro visions be made for a reclassifi cation of lands before the assess ment valuations for 1915 be fixed and that for this purpose suffi cient help be furnished to the County Assessor to perform the required examination snd classi fication". Let us see if Mr. Mahon pre sented the protest in "good faith and with the honest endeavor": The Assessment roll disclosed the fast that Mr. Mahon is ass essed with 4766 acres of lsnd, the assessed vslue of which with improvements is $19,776.00 or less than $4.26 per acre (try to buy the Principality of Mule for $4.26 per acre snd you will find that it is listed and on the mar ket at $26.00 per acre) you know. Mr. Mahon knows, and the Board knew that this is not s fair val uation and that it should be rais ed in order that it might be equi liable as compared with the value J placed on livestock by the Coun- C.

So far as its roads are soncer ned, the county is psasing thru a constructive period. This calls not only for competency on the part of its surveyor, but for it gen eral knowledge of the conditions ss they exist throughout the coun ty. My private work, prior to assuming the duties of the office, hss taken me to the extreme lim its of our Isrge territory. This together with s most active cam paign of road extension work during the past two years, has given me an intimate knowledge of all sections and of their needs. In addition to work on the new roads which have been established I have been engaged in the neces sary work of collecting data and making permanent maps ami ret ords of all existing county Toads. and which is far from being com pleted and brought down to date, As the duties of my ofliee pre vent me from making a personal canvass of the county, I take this means of asking your continued support.

Vote to Save Industrial Oregon VOTE "NO" 329 AND "NO" 331 The very life of the future manufacturing and industrial progress of Oregon hinges upon the defeat of the so-called "Water Front" bills, to be voted on Tuesday, November 3rd. So cunningly and adroitly are these bills worded there is grave danger that many people will be deceived. If these measures become laws the result will be that the State will take title to the tidelands and submerged lands and will be prohibited from selling any of these lands. They can only be leased for docks. No more ship-yards, saw-mills, canneries or other plants requiring access to deep waternothing but docks, docks, docks. Every citizen of Oregon wage earner, farmer, business man or woman, wants to prosper. These measures if enacted will throttle progress at the gate. Investors will shun Oregon. This means no work for the wage-earner, nothing to pay the store-keeper with and therefore nothing to pass on to the farmer or producer. Let no one think these bills do not concern him. Before you go to the booth to vote, read 329 and 331 carefully. Talk to your neighbors about them. Oregon is rich in natural resources, but poor in development. What the state needs above everything else is outside money to come in and develop its resources. That means GOOD WAGES, PLENTY OF WORK, GOOD PRICES and GOOD TIMES.
