At a meeting of the Medford Young People's Union, comprising a federation of all Christian Young Peoples' societies of the city, the matter of bettering the social, civic and spiritual condition of young people was considered.

This union of young people, while having been organized but a little over a month, has shown splendid results and much interest is manifest, which gives promises of many helpful things for the city and community.

This society wishes to go on record as a co-operative force for the welfare and improvement of social and civic conditions and believes that through organization they can gain results otherwise impossible.

This is an age wherein young people are recognized and considered as a vital force in the movement of the business and commercial life, therefore youth, in thinking and studying conditions, and fully believes that they have a right to speak and act.

In the study of present conditions the union wishes to state that they are in hearty accord with all religious and civic improvement societies, and stand for the highest moral and social conditions possible.


Mark V. Weatherford, democratic candidate for congressman, who is touring southern Oregon on a speaking and get acquainted campaign, addressed a packed house at the Medford Baptist church Sunday night on the subject of the brewers' amendment. This amendment, he declared, is like the proverbial mule and carries a kick. Bringing it up again, he says will reopen the way for saloons to once more come into the state, and will scatter followers of the liquor interest throughout the state.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. Weatherford addressed 200 participants of the Michigan-Minnesota picnic at Ashland park. In the evening he spoke before an impromptu mass meeting on the Ashland plaza.

Mr. Weatherford, accompanied by a number of prominent southern Oregon democrats, is today making a handshaking tour of Medford.
