the Hlh and are aorry to aay that Wad-
Jbama 4 Co., have requeated that we
diaoontinue ahipnifnt of our floor to
I you. They claim Oregon City ae being

that joo have been aelllog Benton flour

to comply with their request; although
we very much regret to tever our bu.i-
dm relatione with vou. which have
alwaye been the very beat.
Co., we have Uken the matter up
with theta Id varloue wayi, endeavoring
to devlae tome plan by which you could
tiiliH continue lo handle our floor, but
3 without lucceaa, ai they eem to think
3 the only way to keep up the price and
V prevent competition in our own flour, la

0aoo.i City, 0a .Nov. 22, 1901.
Benton County Flouring Milla Co,
0ntletnen: Your letter of the 15th
Inst, to Fain-lough Bros., of thie city,
was presented to our Retail Merchant's
Association at iU lat meeting, and we
were Instructed to write you the follow,
ing letier and also send a copy to Wad
hams A. Co. The Fain-lough Bros.
Commission House is comparatively a
new enterprise and one which Oregon
City has needed for many years. We
are desirous of making their business a
success, as it leaves money in Oregon
City that otherwise would be spent in
oi her towns. Several of our merabeis
have purchased your brand of flour be
cause it was handled by our local Com
mission House. As to the charge of cut
ting prices, there must be some roieun
del-standing,' because Fairclough Bros,
have not sold a pound of it in Portland,
but have confined their business to Ore
gon City and some country stores from
w hom they bought produce, and have
ouly made such prices as are necessary
to meet the competition of Mulino and
Oregon City Milla.
Our members will be pleased to con
tinue to handle your flour if they can
buy of Fairclough Bros., but if you are
obliged by Wadhama A Co., or for other
reasons to insist on the action stated in
your letter we will be obliged to handle
s jme flour that our Commission House
can get, and we are all In favor of some
mill that is free to sell its flour to those
who want to buy. Trusting that your
self, as well as Wadhama A Co., may be
nble to see this from our point of view
and that we shall hear favorably from
you, we are,
Very truly yours,
Retail Mkkcuants' Association or

The steady increase in the one of irri
galion In parte of the Wet, and the anc
cese which lit attended its practice ba
naturally led to a cose inspection of
Ura-e traits of land which are now
desert waatea, in the hope that they may
be brought onder cultivation. Many
thousands of acres of desert land in the
arid sections are remarkably fertile and
capable ol furnishing home lor arge
populations which may become centers
of tbrivng industries if only water, their
great need and absolute necessity, can
be procured. The small annual rainfall
and the still more sertons lack of rain
during the critical crop growing months
have kept these lands aa poor pastures
or even barren desests. Fortunately the
arid sections are seamed by numerous
lofty, forest clad and often snow caoped
moo ii tain ranuea tarn which flow the
Dureet streams. Thus 'the streams and
rivers, and the underground or artesian
well waters, where they exist, have he
come the pivotal factors on which rest
the agricultural development of im
mense sections of the West ; their waters
must be brought to the land before it
can be productive.
In view of thee facta the investiga
tions ol two parties, among otheis, of
the United States Geological Survey,
which were engaged in studying the
water resources ol the Northwest, will
be of interest. Prof. Israel C. Russell,
who has been working on the great lava
covered section of southern Idaho re
ports the discovery of an artesian basin
. a .L 1
over a Hundred miles in lengm, wnoee
western limit though undermined, lies
in the vicinity of Nam pa and Caldwell
near the Oregon border, ine tana
which can be supplied with water from
this basin liea along the Snake river and
in Bruneau valley, a tributary to the
Snake on the Snake on the touth.
Several flowing wells exist in this lo
cality already and there are indications
of artesian water water also near Shos
hone. In connection with his investi
gations Piof. Russell collected a large
amount of information relative to the
agricultural and timber resources of the
region which are considerable.
The other party, nnder Mr. f. H.
Newell, the chief of the Division of
Hydrography of the Geological Survey,
made an extended reconnoissance of
northern Oregon with reference to the
water supply of that section. They
penetrated into the wilderness of cen
tral Oregon along and to the head of
the Deschutes river and turning to the
eastward skirted the northern portiou of
the great Harney and Malheur deserts
into which the mountains ranges to the
noithsend many streams. The .party
was much impressed by the opportun
ities of development in central and
J murieil on a Ten I'enuy INull.
The little daughter of Mr. J. N. Powell
jumped on an inverted rake made of ten
penny mils, and thrust one nail entirely
through her foot and a second one half
way through. Chamberlain's Pain Balm
was promptly applied and five minutes
later the pain had disappeared and no
more suffering was experienced. In three
days the child was wearing her shoe as
usual and with absolutely no discomfort.
Mr. Towell is a well known moichant of
Forkland, Va. Pain Balm is an antisep
tic and heals such injuries without mat
uration anu in one-third the time re
quited by the usual treatment. For sale

Petition to go to CommiMionerg
ins roBTrrocR hwuurzs
Strong Opponitlen Has Developed and A
Uemonotranee Will Be Presented
U the Board.
A petition will be presented to the
Board of Couniy Commlaaioners next
Wednesday asking lor the incorporation
of the town of Milwaokie. Forty four
names are atta. bed to the petition.
Behind the petition is the removal of
fonr powder houses, belonging to as
many companies, ahich some of tlm peo
pie of too town consider are dangerous
and a menace to the safety of the inhab
itants. It has developed that the town
ia divided against itself on the proposi
tion. A remooatrance against fie peti
tion is being cin-nlateo and will be pre
sented to the Bord. It reads as follows:
'We, the undersigned property own
ers in the town of Milwaukie, hereby re
monstrate against the improvement of
the said town of Milwaokie, for the rev
son that the increase in taxes will depre
ciate the value of our property."
The signer are as follows: T. R. A.
Sellwood, 100 acres; Florence Olson, 10
acres and one and one half blocks ; Jakob
Ernstberger, 5 blocks; Bertbolome
Tscharner, 7 arres ; F. V. Birkemeier. 1
acre; E. M. Hoaell, 2 lota. Ail of the
above are residents of the town. Two
Portland men have signed the petition,
C. A. Cogswell, an attorney, who owns
61 acres of farm land, and J. H. Page,
wholesale grocer, who owns 24 acres.
Both the Southern Pai ific Company end
the Portland City and Oiegon Railway
Company are opposed to incorporation.
The main objection to incorporation
seems to be the small population. The
proposed limits contain, as near as can
be estimated, 234 inhabitants. Another
objection is the manner in which the
town is mapped out. A Milwaukie man
said yesterday that the line was too ir
regular, being a quarter of a mile wide
on the river front and one mile wide on
the eastern boundary. He said that the
signers lo the petition did not represent
the sentiment of U.e town, and that Mr,
Sellwood, who signed the remonstrance,
owns more property within the proposed
limits than all of the signers to the in
corporation petition together.
It is expected that a determined fight
will be made when the matter comes be
tore the Board. Mr. Cogswell will pre
sent the remonstrance and George C.
Brownell will act for the petitioners.
Land Contest Dl-tuised.
Register Moores and Receiver Gallo
way, of the local Land Office, have ren
dered a decision dismissing the contest
of John M. Underwood, of Multnomah
County, vs. James Williams, of Mi?t.
The contestant alleged that Williams
had abandoned the claim, and changed
his place of residence for more than
seven years prior to May 1, 1901, and
that the entrymau had never established
his actual residence or lived npon or im
proved the claim further than building
a cheap cabin. .
Many physicians are now prescribing
Kodol Dyspepcia Cure regularly, having
found that it is the best prescription
they can write because it is the one prep
aration which contains the elements nec
essary t) digest not only some kinds of
food but all kinds and it therefore cures
indigestion and dyspepsia no matter
what its cause. Geo. Harding.
