Amsville Grange on Wednesday, April 1$. The attendance -was very large from the different granges in tlie coutf . The hall were beautifully deco rate with American flags and butter- flirt. The first order of business was Ihe reports from the different granges in the county.

Woodbnrn Grange is not in a very good condition but a new grange has been organized about two miles east of Wood burn, and has about 50 members. Mac leay reported their grange in an excel lent condition, in fact, better than for a goofl many years, with new members coming at every meeting. Ankncy and Butteville Granges were not represented.

The different measures to be voted on in the election in June were then in troduced for the consideration of the grangers. The first measure, authoriz ing porta to create limited indebted ness to encourage water transportation, wag introduced by J. Voorhees, of AVoodburn Grange, who spoke in favor of the measure The second was limiting number of bill introduced and increasing pay of legislators, was introduced by J. VY. Smith. He was not in favor of limiting them as he said they should have honor enough to limit themselves. He said he thought the mode of getting the bills through the legislature was a little I shadowy sometimes and that in the1 course of time we would proLubly do away with the legislature and have a com mission form of government. ! The third was requiring city, county , and state election to bo held at the i same time. O. H. Daily introduced this measure and thought it would be a goou thing and a saving of about $15,000 a year, but too many times there wero .jokers in these bills and ho cautioned the grangers to study these bills well before voting on them. The $100,000 tax levy for a new peni tentiary was introduced by Mrs. A. V. Davidson, who said it was possible the new buildings were needed but did not favor the taxation at the present time with the country in so much turmoil and conditions so unsettled, the people already having all the taxes they can carry. Mr. J. McDonald spoxe on this mea sure, saying he had visited the peniten tiary on Beveral occasions as a member of the jury and lound thf prisoners Bet ter cared for and better fed than most people in their own homes. The girls of the public school of Aumsville gave a flag drill which was appreciated- The grange then gave the salute to the flag and the pledge to the nation. J. F,. Whitehead introduced the mea sure, "The uniform tax classification amendment. " , He did not favor this amendment as we did not know what the law would be, but do know what it is now. He said we knew what legisla tion had done for the people there was nothing honest in the way property was assessed but he could not see that this amendment would help us any, so for that reason was opposed to the measure. Declaration against implied repeal of constitutional provisions by amend ments thereto, wag opposed by John W. L. Smith. K. B. Barber, of Portland, also spoke against this bill. A bill for taxation o Oregon and Cali'fornit land grant, was taken care of by J. P. Bobertson, whose speech will be published at some future date. The next measure was the great ques tion of the clay, the $0,000,000 road bond, which was spoken on by Mr. Van Trump, who said he spoke as a granger and was opposed to the bonoing. He was especially opposed to bonding of'i any kind, when labor and materials are as high as they are now, and that the. article written by State Master C. E.; Spencer covered most of the grange members' views on the bonding. Mr. VanTrump's speech will be published in full in a few days. These measures were not allowed to be discussed at this meeting, but only introduced for the consideration and careful study by the members, perhaps a special meeting will be called for the discussion of these bills before the June election. Mr. Woilesy, 'from Astoria, was called on and made a short speech inviting all to attend the state grange which meets with Astoria Grange. E. H. Baker was called and spoke a few words. Mr. J. Ulrich, of Airlie, made a few remarks. The grange then closed the open ses sion and opened in the fourth degree. The grange unanimously sustained C. E. Spencer, the state master, in his ar ticle against bonding. A resolution- was adopted to extend the state grange an invitation to meet w'ith. Salem Grange in 1938, also to ask the Commercial club to assist in enter taining them. The members then sang "America" and closed in due form; Eola News Notes (Capital Journal Speeiul Service.)

Tho young man who GOES TO CHURCH has the confidence. oC his employer. Tho employer knows that a young man who is a regular church ut tendant cannot go wrong very far. Tho beneficial influence of tlia church is ever present. What is truo of the young man is true of the older business man. Observing persons are apt to patronize tho man who GOKS TO CHURCH. Thev feel Hint they arc ASSURED OF HON EST AND SQUARE DEALING. Of course thero are some hypocrites, but they arc the exception rather than tho rule. The professional man, the lawyer, tho doctor, who GOES' TO CHURCH is an iiuiiietliala material gainer. THEREFORE IT IS PLAIN THAT THE YOUNG MAN WHO WISH ES TO RISE IN THE ESTIMATION OF HIS EMPLOYER, THE BUSI NESS MAN AND THE PROFESSIONAL MAN WHO WISH TO BE SUCCESSFUL, MUST GO TO CHURCH. THE BIGGEST MEN IN THE UNITED STATES GO TO CHURCH. PRESIDENT WILSON IS A REGULAR CHURCH ATTENDANT. SO ARE THE LEADERS IN EV ERY LINE OF ENDEAVOR. You'll meet the right sort of people in church.
