i "Horace McKinley owned over
17,000 acres of echool lands in the

from the state. L. M. Ormsby, sen
of Captain Ormsby, had 1-8 inter

wanted the land included in the

- "F. P. MayB demanded 50 per

Mountain reserve. ; We told Mays
we would pay 50 . cents an ' acre.
Mays said that would not pay the

"" Line. ' . j
The announcement from Coos
Bay is that an automobile stage line
is to be established between that
section and Newport, and if the
plan materializes as now program
med, the wonder will be , why the
enterprise was not -- inaugurated
long before. The distance is 90
miles, and the schedule will pro
vide for covering it in a pleasant
ride of only five, hours. , The trip
will be on the ocean beach with the
exception of a few points such as
Cape . Perpetua, where a road
through the hills will afford con
nections with the contigous stretch
es of beach. Work , on these con
necting roads is said to be already
in progress. Four big machines
capable of carrying a number of
passengers will be in the service,
and the run will be made twice a
day.f One machine will operate be
tween Newport and Alsea Bay, an
other between Alsea and the mouth
of the Umpqua and so on until the
destination is reached. The ar
rangement will be such that the
passenger can leave Corvallis in the
afternoon and reach Marslifield be
fore noon the next day. The route
will be in operation nine months in
the year. The ride will be in the
nature of a pleasure jaunt. The
fare will be $10. It is expected to
have the line in operation before
the end of the coming summer.

-The prices of horses in Ben
ton county are unusually high.
but compared with other sections.
they should be higher. The scar
city is not confined to Oregon. It
prevails in other states. Thomas
Fawcett, who has- just arrived
from a months visit East, found
even a greater scarcity there. ; He
was in Nebraska, Iowa and other
middlewest, sections, and in each
buyers were scouring neighbor
hoods for the purchase of horses.
that, could scarcely be. bought at
any price. As is the case' in Ben
ton, many farmers there have sold
more horses than they could spare
and some of them are in actual
need. Two Montana men were in
Nebraska at the same time Mr.
Fawcett was, and went there to buy
a carload of mares. They search
ed the state over,' and then with
out making purchases, went into
Iowa to continue the hunt.. . After
a week there, they returned to Ne
braska where they bought eight
mares, which they brought back
to Montana with them, paying the
transportation price for a whole
carload in order to get the eight
home, an incident showing the de
mand for horses. In Seattle, Mr.
Fawcett happened to be in a stable
when a black mare formerly owned
by Henry Hector, was brought in.
The man who owned her had just
arrived in Seattle the night before.
He was offered, in the presence of
Mr. . Fawcett, $400 f r the mare,
and . refused it. The same day
passing along the street in Saattle
was a team on which was displayed
.the words "For Sale." Mr.Fawcett
hailed . the driver, and
inquired the price, as a matt er of
curiosity. " Five hundred and
twenty five dollars, was the re
ply. And .both animals in the
team were comparatively small,
weighing less than 1,300 each.
Horses are horses, and they will
continue to be horses for some time
to come. ' And when a colt ' from
a good sire is, as it is, worth $125
to $156 at weaning time, there
certainly must be great money 'in
the industry. '
