The second day of the thirty-seventh annual convention of the Rogue River Baptist association opened in the Baptist church this morning at 9:30 with O.C. Wright as chairman. The morning was devoted to a general expression of the needs of the church work by the delegates and an address by Dr. Hinson. Dr. MacCullough urged that the ministers buy autos and make regular trips to the county districts to secure new members and carry the Gospel into out-of-the-way places.
The afternoon session opened at 1:30 o'clock, with new delegates from Ashland, Grants Pass and Phoenix in attendance. Addresses and talks on missionary work were given. General business of the year will be completed tomorrow. Dr. Hinson will address the evening meeting.
J.K. Woods, former organizer of the Owls lodge, who was arrested upon complaint of local members of the order for alleged passing of bad checks, has been released from the county jail and the charges will probably be dropped, though presented to the grand jury according to Prosecutor Kelly. All shortages, etc., have been made good.
The Owl lodge, of which Woods was organizer, whose fraternal being was in doubt, has been recognized by the grand lodge and a charter for the local order has been received.The chief reason for the release of Woods was the unwillingness of those who caused his arrest to testify and file a complaint.
The first exhibition of the Harry Lauder singing and talking pictures will be Thursday, matinee and night at the Page, when William Morris will present this wonderful invention that reproduces so nicely the art of his world famous star. The pictures synchronize beautifully, the slightest inflection of Lauder's voice has been caught, as well as every gesture and every variation of mood. here is assuredly the last word in motion pictures.
"I Love a Lassie," "She's the Lassie for Me," "Saftst O' the Family," "She's Ma Daisy," and other Lauder favorites will be sung and pattered and enacted as only Lauder can.
