It ia reportod that the Southern Ta
cifle Railroad company ia attempting to
secure another route so aa to avoid Cow
Creek Canyon. Surveyors have been at
work running a line through the mount
aim that not only keeps away from the
Canyon, tut saves 40 mile. The Cow
Creek Canyon piece of road has been
treacherous ever since it was built, and
has coat the company immense amounts
of money to remove landslides.
ltoMNU for oil in Oregon Is getting to
be quite a fad. It Is not yet reported
that anybody has found oil, but one man
who smelled of the point of the auger
says that lie detected strong evidences of
petroleum. Perhaps this is enough foun-
datlon upon which to build a stock com
pany. Many a stock company has come
into existence on less provocation than
a strong smell.
Tut "absent treatment" fraud has re
ceived a eit-back at Nevada Missouri.
For a long time the "Weltmer Institute
of Magnetic Healing has been giving
'absent treatment" to thousands of poor
deluded dupes. The so called "insti

and Joseph A. Keely. They were mak

It might be well to remark that
President William McKinley will pans

weeks. If the presidential eye ever
fixes itself on some of the alleys, Oregon
City will never get a rating for cleanli

A woman well known in Oregon City
has recently achieved fame as the author
of two books on bird lore. She is Fanny
Hardy Ec kstorm, and her books are en
titled "The Bird Book" and "The Wood-
peckers." Mrs. Eckstorm will be re
membered as the wife of Jacob A. Eck
storm, pastor of St. Pauls church in Ore

; Clackamas county is thrifty in the
promotion of divorce suits. As each di

contests reached 57, thereby furnishing
S reward of $1,254 for the county coffers.

Ippines. A committee of citizens is now
in Washington urging the goyernment
to abandon the chartering of steamships
and turn the traffic over to a private cor

Francisco to Manila if the government
business can be secured.

to the community. It is the founding of
a condensed milk factory, to supply the
growing demand for this useful article of
commerce. It is the opinion of those
who deal in condensed milk for foreign
shipment, that the trade will alwavs
prove remunerative. Portland dealers
imported approximately 40 carloads of
condensed milk last year. This milk
was brought 3,000 miles for shipment.
