Mail Tribune 100

Nov. 6, 1916


Republican headquarters will be moved to the Medford hotel Tuesday evening, where the election returns will be received by a special wire in the lobby and everybody is invited to come.

The ladies especially are invited and the Mezzanine floor has been set aside for them.

The republicans will have a "home coming" for Mrs. Ed Hanley and Mrs. Bert Anderson, who have been campaigning all over the state at the Nat tonight at 8 o'clock. It will be the closing rally of the campaign. Colonel R. C. Washburn will preside. Mrs. Bert Anderson will sing one of her campaign songs and Mrs. Ed Hanley will speak.

The Medford and Central point bands will head an escort for the speakers and march from the Medford hotel to the Nat at 7:30.


D.C. Brown, manager of the Robert S. Towne estate, owners of the Blue Ledge mine, returned Tuesday from a week's inspection of the property. It was his first glimpse of the mine, and he announced that he was agreeably surprised at the remarkably fine showing there.

Mr. Brown left Tuesday evening for New York, where he made his report to other directors of the Towne company, who will decide upon operating or selling the property.

Indications favor operations, with auto trucks to start on, until railroad connections are secured.
