Also he was to start out without any money and not have any money on the way except what he could obtain by selling photographs, etc.

SUSPICIOUSLY EYES UNCLE SAM. Mexicans Stirred by False Reports Printed In Sensational Newspapers. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
SUSPICIOUSLY EYES UNCLE SAM. Mexicans Stirred by False Reports Printed In Sensational Newspapers. Washington.—While the official relations between the United States and Mexico were never more cordial than now, and while there is nothing in the material interests or desires of either republic which conflicts in the slightest degree with the others, officials of the American State Department have become suddenly aware of the existence and rapid growth of a public sentiment in Mexico of distrust and suspicion of Americans and American intentions respecting Mexican territory. This condition is made more exasperating, but none the less harmful and embarrassing, from the fact that it is entirely groundless in fact, and, the officials declare, has for its basis nothing but irresponsible newspaper gossip and criticism, such, for instance, as a lurid description of Magdalena Bay, where the fleet has just concluded target practice, with a hint thrown in that the location ’and natural surround...
Riots During Lisbon Elections. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
Riots During Lisbon Elections. Lisbon. —The elections here Sunday were followed by serious rioting which was only put down by vigorous action by troops. The rioting broke out in different parts of the city as though by a preconcerted plan. Troops repeatedly charged the mobs that in places filled the streets. The rioters used clubs, stones and whatever other weapons came to hand. The troops replied with volleys of bullets, killing and wounding a number of the rioters. -The ballot boxes, according to the traditional custom, were installed in churches and the voting, due to the agitation throughout the country and the active campaign of the Republilans, was probably the heaviest cast in Portugal's history. The monarchists apparently are satisfied with the result of the election, saying that the extravagant claims of the Republicans are utterly disproved.

Fresno May Lose Militia Company. Fresno. —Because of a poor showing made during the inspection by State officers in February, Company C, Fresno’s oldest military company, is likely to be mustered out of service. The company contains some of the most prominent business and professional men of the city, as well as Span-ish-American war veterans and has always stood well in point of efficiency. But at the inspection the State officers were disgusted with the showing the company made. They offered to let the company remain in the guard until another inspection on April 14th, and if then the usual standard was not maintained the company would be mustered out.

Address of Supervisor Frick On El Camino Real [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
Address of Supervisor Frick On El Camino Real In reproducing the full text of Supervisor Frick’s address before the board of supervisors Monday, we do so with the conviction that the people of Lompoc should awaken to the necessity of their united action against the adoption of the route for the proposed El Camino Real as laid down by Engineer Dickinson. The absurdity of the engineer’s report is clearly stated in Mr. Frick’s address, and it is not likely that Lompoc will sit idly by and allow the district to be bonded for a highway that would dodge this section entirely and shy off from every town on the route but one. The supervisor's arraignment was not idle talk but a level-headed argument from an intelligent representave of this district. We also publish in full the Independent’s attack on Mr. Frick and the latter’s reply in the Press. Following is the supervisor’s speech verbatim as reported in the Press of Tuesday: County Supervisor J. F. Frick at a meeting of the supervisors M...
Independent Attacks Supervisor Frick [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
Independent Attacks Supervisor Frick Referring to the above, the Independent says: “The inspired attack on the county highway commission by Supervisor J. F. Frick of Lompoc will accomplish a purpose that surely was not intended by those that put him up to the effort. The source of only opposition to good roads in this county will be exposed. Look for the supporters of Frick in his time of need—at the convention and election and when trouble came on him —and you have found those that are not friendly to the good roads movement. Not those good people of Lompoc and thereabouts, who are more or less the unwilling constituents of Supervisor Frick. He did not speak for them. In every movement that would advance this county, in all things that were intended to make for betterment of conditions of life here, the people of Lompoc always have been among the leaders. They are now up in front supporting the movement for a grand highway across the county. We do not believe that the Supervisor sp...
Mr. Frick’s Reply. [Newspaper Article] — Lompoc Journal — 11 April 1908
Mr. Frick’s Reply. To the above article Supervisor Frick replies as follows: "Under the caption, ‘Frick on Good Roads,’ the Santa Barbara Independent of last night undertakes not to answer any of the arguments used in the Santa Barbara P.ese, but seeks to befog the issue by a persona! at* tack upon me. The so-called ‘inspiration’ resulting in my statements to the board of supervisors was originally a mass meeting, of Lompoc citizens composed of nearly 150 of the best citizens of Lompoc. At that meeting a committee composed of James Sloan, Dr. H. P. Dimock, R. A. Lazier, was appointed to look after the interests of the Fourth d«dtrlct In the matter of the Camlao Real. Upon Saturlay last that cotlimitee Instructed me, as the supervisor representing the Fourth district, to bring the matter of the report of Mr. Dickinson before the ! board of supervisors with the request to them that further proceedings along the proposed route through Foxen canyon be stopped. If possible, for the reaso...
