SALEM. Or.. Aug. 30. (Special.)
With the fact becoming apparent that
all but two or three of the property-
holders who have been holding back
from offering their land for part of the
right of way to the Oregon Electric
have reached an amicable adjustment
with the railroad, it Is now safe to as
sert that within two1 weeks at the lat
est large gangs of men will be placed
at work south of Salem between here
and Albany and construction work on
the extension will be pushed with the
greatest possible vigor.
Within the next two days formalities
on large pieces of right of way will ba
completed. In several instances the
whole difficulties have been patched
and all that Is required now la the
formality of a deed.
There are still one or two citizens of
Salem who are holding out, but It li
believed that an adjustment will be
reached with them In a short time. If
not, court proceedings will be rushejl
through at the earliest possible mo
ment to reach a legal adjustment.
At any rate It Is sure that construc
tion work will be started south of
Salem In the reasonably near future
and when It la started one of tha
quickest pieces of road-building- ever
witnessed In Oregon will be started.

"Since my coming to Oregon, how

Mr. Gray said that the only diffi

Students Induce Descendant of

BOSTON, Aug. 30. For the first time
in the 275 years' history of Harvard
University, the name of Harvard will
appear on the student rolls the com
ing Fall. Lionel De Jersey Harvard,
of London, a descendant of the family
of John Harvard, founder of the Uni
versity, will sail for Boston next week
and under unusual and sentimental cir
cumstances will be come a member
of the class of 1915. '
Lionel Harvard Is directly descended
from a cousin of John Harvard, who
died In 1638. He prepared for Eman
uel College, but financial reasons pre
vented his entering.
The discovery of the young man is
traced In a letter written in 1847 by
Edward Everett, then president of Har
vard University, to George Bancroft,
Minister to Great Britain. It referred
to members of the Harvard family, and
the letter was recently discovered
among old letters belonging to Ban

The Steinvay Piano
THE ONLY PIANO KNOWN IN
EVERY CITY, TOWN AND
HAMLET ON THE L
So world-renowned and universally
revered has the Steinway become that
it stands easily at the head of any
list of pianos that can be named, and
confers the distinction of leadership
upon its representatives everywhere.
This has led many dealers who are
not Steinway agents to advertise second-hand
Steinways for sale, so that
they may use the splendor of the
Steinway name to give a borrowed
luster to the inferior instruments they
are compelled to offer. This is one of
the tributes that inferiority is forced
.to pay to superiority. Of course,
those' who are thinking of buying a
Steinway will prefer to deal with
regular accredited Steinway repre
sentatives, where they may obtain new
instruments and at the same price for
which they are sold in New York,
