Jackson County is setting a new Oregon record for speed in organizing its county Y. M. C. A. On the tenth of this month at a meeting in the public library it was decided that the Jackson County Y. M. C. A. should be organized; $4,000 of the budget has been subscribed. It is expected that the remaining $1,000 will be covered soon after election day excitement is over. Most of this deficiency is due from Medford-Ashland citizens having already practically covered their apportionment.

Sunday afternoon at three o’clock in the public library there will be held a meeting which will have as its purpose the formation of the permanent county organization. All who have subscribed to the Jackson County Y. M. C. A. are urged to attend.


Altho Hallowe’en this year falls on Sunday it will be observed tonight and residents of the city are warned to remove chairs and other things from their porches, or else the merry-making boys and girls will do the job for them.


The near approach of election day is reflected by the unusually light number of guests at the local hotels. Nearly all the regular travelers as well as the casual ones have gone, and are en route to their homes, to vote.


The Page theatre management has arranged for an all-night performance election night, (Tuesday, Nov. 2nd) having a wire service run into the theatre to give the complete election returns and also secured a photoplay novel of thirty chapters, with William Duncan in “Smashing Barriers,” a smashing romance of the great outdoors, in the lumber camps, featuring the football field and the mountains. The management wishes everyone to come prepared for a rattling good time, to bring your lunch, refreshments, sofa pillows, etc., and to root for your favorite, in fact the main idea is to make yourself comfortable and at home at this all-night party. Remember these parties only happen once in four years, so make an early reservation. All seats reserved.


The Rosseau Coal Co. has commenced active operations for the winter. A crew of 10 miners have been put to work in the Roxy Ann mine and the force will be increased to 20 soon. The coal will be delivered anywhere in the city by truck. During the summer 500 feet of new tunnel was opened hitting the main body of coal.
