Mail Tribune 100

March 7, 1917

SENATOR LANE IS ASKED TO RESIGN FOR MISREPRESENTATION

Attorney General Brown having held that United States Senator Harry Lane is not subject to the provisions of the recall, petitions are in circulation in Medford, as well as all other towns in Oregon asking for his resignation. A copy of the petition can be seen and signed at the Mail Tribune office. It reads as follows: Harry Lane, senator of Oregon, Washington, D. C.

"Sir:

"We, the undersigned voters of the state of Oregon, view with shame and humiliation your failure to uphold the honor of the United States at this most critical moment of the entire history of our international relations.

"No words can adequately describe our chagrin that the state of Oregon should be so misrepresented and disgraced as it has been by your action. We indignantly protest against this action through the love we bear to our state and to our country, to which you have dishonored and belittled before the eyes of the world, and we demand on account of this misrepresentation your resignation as a senator from this state.

WOOD DEALERS WARNED NOT TO DRIVE OVER CURB

Complain has been made to the city street department that wood dealers and others are making a practice of driving their wagons over the sidewalks and curbs of the city where no driveway exists, thereby, in a number of cases, cracking curbs and sidewalks.

Warnings to individuals have failed to stop the practice and the street department and police department will in the future co-operate in punishing offenders under the provisions of city ordinance No. 149, sections 20 and 21, of which regulate crossing of sidewalks where no crossing exists, and provides a penalty for infraction of the ordinance.
