Editor Courier-Herald: Following up
the advice I gave you last week with ref
erence to the large number of home
seekers leaving St. Paul last Tuesday
and Wednesday on our train Nc. 11, I
have now to say that I am today in re
ceipt of a telegram from Charles S. Fee,
general pesBenger and ticket agent of
this company at St. Paul, saying that
our tram left there at 8:55 this morning
with over 40J horaeseekers for the Pa
cific coast, and that every indication
points now to there being between 000
anu700 onthe train leaving tomorrow
momma bound for Washington and Ore
gon. The great number of homeseekers
taking advantage of the low rate of $25
from St. Paul, Minneapolis, Duluth and
$30 from Chicago, warrants the conclu
sion that thousands of people have their
eyes turned to the west and will undoubt
edly settle among u, and every assist
ance and aid within our power should be
given them in order that we may secure
them as permanent settlers in thia ter
liiory. A. D. Ciiari.tv,
