The Medford Nest of Owls that was considerably mussed up by the alleged fraudulent operations of J.K. Woods, organizer for the order, held in the county jail awaiting the action of the grand jury, will be modeled; the supreme nest will give a charter, and put the local branch upon its feet without additional cost. This was the word sent to A.B. Hammond from Attorney John C. Mullen of Springfield, Ore., who has the matter in hand.
Mr. Mullen will be in the city next week when steps will be taken to reorganize and revitalize the order, and all members and those who anticipate joining are urged to lend a hand.
Assurances that the department of agriculture will send a competent weather forecaster to this section, and that the weather station will be permanent was received this morning by Secretary F.W. Streets of the Commercial club in a telegram from Congressman W.C. Hawley. This step is the result of a resolution passed by the Commercial club directors urging upon Washington, D.C. the necessity of a permanent weather station at this place in connection with the fruit industry.
The telegram is as follows:
Washington, D.C., April 11.
Commercial Club, Medford, Ore.
Had conference with secretary and assistant secretary of agriculture and they assured me competent official will be sent you for weather station work in connection with your fruit industry during this season and such service will be permanently provided for.
