- G. L. Schermerhorn, nominated as director for the prospered irrigation district on the anti-district ticket, states that he is not an opponent of irrigation, but of the district plan, which he thinks works an injustice upon the farmer who does not think he can afford to irrigate more than a part of his place. For himself he believes in irrigation and would be willing to sign up for a portion of his own ranch, but does not believe in a blanket affair.
- At 3 o'clock Thursday morning fire broke out in the Stout home on the Medford road and burned the dwelling to the ground. Fortunately the contents had been moved to Medford a few days previous. Owing to the wind the fire boys had hard work saving the two adjoining houses.
