Franchise Asked of Salem
Council for New Elec
. trie Line.
HILL'S INTEREST HINTED
New Road to Kxtend From Salem
Each Way to Eugene and Port
land, With Laterals Work
to Be Rushed at Once.
SALEM, Or., Aug. 12. (Special.) A
petition was presented to the City
Council tonight asking for a franchise
over several streets of the city, from
the northern to southern limits, with
an outlet upon the Willamette River,
for an entirely new electric railway
system. The purpose of this is to con
struct a line of railroad from this city
outhward as far as Albany, on the
Initial stretch, and contemplates an ex
tension to Portland on the north and
Eugene en the south, with a lateral or
feeder branching from the main line
at Turner to Mehama.
The franchise is asked in the name
of A. "Welch, of Portland. He is backed
In the enterprise by Eastern capital,
whose identity is withheld from publi
cation at present, but the circumstances
surrounding the scheme smacks of Hill
interests very strongly. The petition
for the franchise covers two separate
lines, both of which have their start
ing point at the Fair Ground store, on
the Portland-Salem road, where it joins
with the original L. B. French right
of way. One traverses certain promi
nent streets through the residence
portion of the city, terminating at the
river's brink, calculated to give an out
let to the system into Polk County.
The other takes a river course through
t the city in a nearly direct line to the
touther nllmlts, and will connect in the
vicinity of the Reform School with the
line that has already been surveyed
and for which right of way has been se
cured from this city to Mehama.
The specific conditions mentioned in
the franchise are that work must be
begun within six months after the
granting of the franchise, and the en
tire road completed between this city
and Albany within two years. This
indicates that there is need of hurry
in the completion of the project. Mr.
Welch, who is at the head of the Wil
lamette Valley Company, recently sold
out his Interests in the Eugene & East
ern to Story and others, who are pro
moting a system of lines out of Eu
gene. He is devoting his entire efforts
upon the present project, which con
templates a continuous system of elec
tric railway from Portland to the
southern boundary of the state, with
laterals reaching, out to the most, fer
tile sections of the Valley, having no
rail outlet to the principal markets.
Two crews of surveyors will be placed
In the field, the first or next week, and
will complete the surveys, according to
the designs of the pronjoters, at they

WEEVIL DESTROYING ALFALFA
Xew Pest In Vtah Machine tp Catch
OGDEN, Utah. Aug. 12.-(Special.)-A
new. pest is destroying alfalfa In the
Northern part of Utah. It is a weevil,
closely related to the ball weevil that has

and reports the pest as entirely new to
this region, and says that so far as he la
aware no damage to alfalfa has been re
ported from a similar insect.

insect. The machine is proving very effec
tive, having In one Instance bagged 50
bushels of the hoppers In two days and
at another time, ten bushels in three
The machine is composed of a light
wire netted box and a high tin flare
sloping back to this box. It Is 16 or 18
feet wide and Is drawn by horses hitched
at the ends.

OIL WELLS IX SOUTHERN UTAH
Yield Fine Grade of OH but Are Very
Hard to Reach.
OGDEN, Utah., Aug. 12. (Special.) The
new oil fields of Southern Utah are at
tracting oil men from all the surrounding'
states, and development will be as rapid
as poor transportation facilities will per
mit. The only important well yet opened
Is flowing 100 barrels a day and other
wells will be. opened as soon as machinery
can be placed on the grounds. It must
be hauled 40 miles in wagons after
leaving the Salt Lake railroad.

perts pronounce it of a finer grade than
California oil and say there la none
better found In this country. The chief
difficulty is In Its Inaccessibility.

timber holdings from double to treble
the old valuations.

HEAVY LOSS IS
CAUSED BY DAM
Thousands of Acres of Land
Are inundated in
FARMERS ARE HOMELESS
Washington Water Power Company
Said to Be Responsible for Dam
age to Ranches Along St. Joe
and Coeur d'Alene Rivers.
POST FALLS, Idaho, Aug. 12.--(Spectal.)
Because of a dam built by the Washing
ton Water Company at this point, thous
and of acres of farm land are overflowed
and the crops that would, ordinarily be
harvested are a total loss. The farmers
of the country along the St. Joe and
Coeur d'Alene Rivers are greatly wrought
up over the loss of their homesteads.
Nearly 800 ranchers are affected, their
living and very homes being at stake.
It is estimated that more than 3000 acres
lying along the Coeur d'Alene River
alone are completely submerged in sev
eral feet of water. Along the St. Joe
River are other districts of lesser acre
age beneath the water, and in the Wolf
Lodge country and other lake regions
there are hundreds of acres of splenild
grazing meadows" now covered with sev
eral feet of water. The total amounts to
many thousands of acres that are abso
lutely worthless under the present condi
tion of affairs.
The farmers will club together and
fight the corporation that has practically
ruined their farms and homes and left
them In bad shape for the approaching
Winter and one of the most extensive and
complicated Jaw-suits ever brought in
this part of the country is now. threat
ened by the farmers of this district.
The thousands of acres now overflowed
have - heretofore been harvested In the
month of August and produced from one
to three tons of splendid hay to the acre,
which sold on the market from $12 to $16
a ton. Now, however, as the entire tract
is, and has been for some time overflowed
with several feet of water, tnere is prac
tically no hope of any hay being harvest
ed here this year and the Winter feed
will not only be lost for the stock but
many families who depended on their hay
crop to buy their Winter supplies will be
rendered destitute. In many cases the
farmers have lost all their possessions by
the high water.
The Washington Water Power Company
claim thty have a right to dam the lake.
having derived this right from ilr. Post,
who settled at Post Falls in the early
days and who derived his right from the
Government when he took up his home
stead here. The farmers took their
homesteads In good faith, received a pat
ent from the Government and therefore
claim that the flooded lands are a loss
to them and that they are entitled to
damages. The farmers claim that the
hay grown in the flooded district is worth
annually not less than $113,000. -

Lower Site at Estacada to Be
Chosen by County Court.
OREGON CITY, Or., Aug. 12. (Spe
cial.) Clackamas River is to have a new

RUN NOT YET BEGUN; PLENTY
FOUND NORTH AND SOUTH.
Reason Assigned Is Yaquina River Is
Not Fed With Fresh Water
Until Fall Rains Come.
NEWPORT, Or., Aug. 12. (Special.)
Though salmon are now running well In
the Alsea River. 15 miles south of here,
and are also plentiful in the SUetz, 22
miles to the northward, they are not yet
running in the Yaquina River. Occasion
ally a sllverslde Is seen in the bay but the
salmon run has not begun, although
streams both north and south of here
are full of the fish.
This condition is due to the fact that
the Yaquina River carries very little fresh
water. Both the Alsea and the Siletz
are fed by many mountain streams and
the fresh water In them causes salmon
to enter them earlier. Salmon never begin
to run in the Yaquina River until the
Fall rains come and the fresh water Is"
apparent In. the stream.

WAITING FOR IKE ERATTON
M1IAVAUKIE CLUB DEPENDS
UPON" HIS RETURN.
His Money to Fight Closing Mil
waukle in Darkness, but vui
Dig Up Money to Buy Light.
OREGON CITY. Or., Aug. 11 Special.)
-Upon the return of Isaac Gratton, the
founder and promoter of the Milwaukle
Country Club, from his trip In Europe,
depends the action of the club, and until
he returns to Oregon soil it Is very un
likely that any steps will be taken to
wards making a legal fight In the
courts. Mr. Gratton is a life-long gambler
and his opinion among the sporting fra
ternity and his associates naturally car
ries considerable weight. It is generally
believed here, however, that eventually
the fight will be made for the simple
reason that the gamblers have little to
lose by going to the courts for relief and
everything to gain. While the legal
lights of Multnomah and Clackamas
counties do not generally agree with
Senator Hedges in his opinion that the
Country Club cannot be closed, it is
known that the owners of the club place
a great deal of confidence in Senator
Hedges' ability as a lawyer and It would
not be at all surprising if they would
act along the line of his suggestions.
There is no doubt that the club will be
reopened if the fight Is to be made, for
there Is no other way by which the
gamblers can get their case before the
bar of Justice. Their plan will be to open
the resort, and when this is done some
one will communicate with Sheriff R. B.
Beatle, who will g to Milwaukle forth
with and arrest the gamblers on a charge
of violating the state law.
Sheriff Beatle states positively that the
club will not be permitted to operate
pending the decision of the courts, and
this being the case It Is probable that
many months will elapse before the pub
lic is assured of the ultimate result, for,
no matter what the decision In the Cir
cuit Court, the matter will be carried up
to the Supreme Court of the state. Isaac
Gratton has a snug sum of money Invest
ed In the grounds and buildings of the
Mllwaukie Country Club and It Is cer
tain that he will not He down quietly and
submit to the state authority without a
struggle, while his counsel Is advising him
that he has a legal right to run under the
license of the city of Milwaukle. Gratton
Is naturally a tenacious man and wants
a run for his money, and he has quite
a comfortable pile, accumulated through
years of gambling on the green cloth in
