leasehold Will Be Turned
Over to' China.
Amounts Which Pekin Must Pay
. for Islanders' Investments
Virtually Decided.
TSINGTAO. Shantung-, Oct. 10.
(By the Associated Press.) Japan
has decided to restore the leasehold
of Kiaochow to China December 2.
On that date Japanese troops will
withdraw, civil and military author
ity in the Kiaochow district will be
handed over to China and the Chin
ese flag will be hoisted for the first
time since Germany acquired the
territory in 1898.
The fixing of'the definite date for
' the restoration of Kiaochow was
announced today by the Japanese
members of the Shantung commis
sion, which was appointed to work
out the details of the evacuation as
provided in the treaty between
Japan and China signed at
, Washington.
Thus will end the international
controversy which began when Ger
many established a naval base 24
years ago and which later figured
in the diplomatic affairs of Paris
and Washington.
Treaty to Be Observed.
China's banpruptcy will not be
permitted to interfere with the res-
tciation programme. Katsuji De
buchi, member of the Shantung com
mission and formerly counsellor of
the Japanese delegation at Wash
ington, said: s
Japan intends to aanere 10 ine
letter and the spirit of the Shantung
treaty signed at Washington. fotn
Ing will be permitted to interfere
with the turning over of Kiaochow
to China on December 2."
The amounts which China must
pay for Japanese investments in the
district have been virtually decicea
upon. Debuchi said Japan will exact
only what Japan paid to Germany
Tor private German investments and
what Japan actually invested since
1914. it is expected that Japan will
accept Chinese treasury notes, as
China is without cash at present.
China will receive free all public
properties which Japan acquired
from the German government.
83 Million' Yen Wanted.
The commission decided China
must pay 20,000,000 yen for Japanese
investments in public improvements,
8,000,000 yen for improvements made
7n the salt industry of Kiachow and
6o. 000,000 yen for the Shantung 'rail
road, a grand total of 83,000,000 yen.
The coal mines, which are valued
at 10,000,000 yen, are to be operated
jointly by the Japanese and Chinese,
a corporation for which is to be or
ganized. . Under the treaty,- it would not
have been necessary for Japan to
have restored the railroad to China
until next March. The Japanese del
egates say. however, that the em
pire is anxious to relinquish the rail
road by December 2, so that Japan
will be relieved of all responsibility
in Shantung on the same date.
Despite the prospective with
draway of the Japanese, Tsing Tao,
which is a typically modern German
city, ia undergoing a building boom.
Hundreds of Japanese houses of the
German style of architecture are
being constructed. Japanese induss.
tries expect to continue unaffected
under the Chinese administration.

gation company from Crane west to
Udell, a distance of 165 miles, and
extension of either the Oregon
Trunk railroad or the Deschutes
Railroad company from Bend to
Odell. The distance between Bend
nd Odell is approximately 50 miles,
Mr. Corey said. There also is in
cluded in the complaint a line of
the Central Pacific railroad from
Klamath Falls to Lakeview or an
extension by the Oregon-Washington
Railroad & Navigation company
from the Crane-Odell line to Lake
view. Mr. Corey declared that either
of these lines would give Lake
view an outlet and place it in close
contact with the Portland markets.
DlRtances Would Be Cut.
It was set out in Mr. Corey's com
plaint that the distance between
Klamath Falls and Portland as a
result of the proposed extensions
would be reduced from 508 miles to
386 miles via Bend, thence north to
the Columbia river, and thence
westward to Portland, and approxi
mately 360 miles via Odell and
The distance between Crane and
Portland would be reduced from 558
miles to approximately 370 miles via
Odell and Eugene, while the distance
from Lakeview to Portland would
be reduced from 9J)5 miles to 426
miles north, via Bend, or 462 miles
via Klamath Falls, Odell and Eu
gene. The distance between Eugene and
Ontario would be reduced from 555
miles to approximately 416 miles,
via the proposed Crane and Odell
line, while the distance between
Ashland and Ontario, would be re
duced from 773 miles to approxi
mately 629 miles.
Houtes Meld Kranlble.
Despite the unlimited resources
available for development, it was
set -out by Mr. Corey that at the
present time there is no railroad
extending eastward from the west
ern part of the state, south to Port
land, to any point in eastern Ore
gon or to that portiqn of southern
Oregon lying east of the Cascade
"There now exists practicable and
feasible routes for the extensions
proposed i nthe complaint." said Mr.
Ccrey, "and surveys have beer? made
and in some instances construction
actually begun many years since
- but never completed,
"There is the largest supply of
pine timber In America prowing in
that part of the state that would be
adjacent to the extensions sought."
said the complaint, "much of which
timber is. now mature and should
be promptly manufactured to pre
vent a great waste, and financial
loss to the nation. "Adjacent to
the proposed Klamath Falls-Eugene
extension there is approximately
20.000,000,000 feet of standing tim
ber, principally white pine, for
which there exists a nation-wide
Marketable Timber Available.
"To the north of Burns there is
approximately 7.000,000,000 feet of
marketable timber. The extension
of a railroad to Burns would serve
a territory in Harney valley capable
of growing 200,000 acres of grain,
all of which awaits adequate trans
portation facilities. To the north
of Lakeview is another 7,000.000,000
feet of marketable timber with vast
tracts of timber existing practically
throughout eastern Oregon, all - of
'which would find a ready market
if the extensions are constructed.
Sawmills of the largest capacity
are now constructed in those coun
ties where transportation is now
"Large mineral deposits also ob
tain in this region. The tonnage
derived from the vast timber re
sources on the coast and moving to
the east would afford revenue that
would materially assist in paying
the costs of operations of the ex
tended line, Crane to Odell, until
such time as the development of
the natural resources adjacent to
the extended lines would render
the same self supporting.
"The southeastern' part of the
state of Oregon, comprising an area
of more than 22,500 square miles,
and perhaps the largest undeveloped
territory in the United States, of
which 533,000 acres are now under
irrigation and 613,000 acres are now
proposed for irrigation, and 327,340
acres of swamp land to be reclaimed,
are all awaiting adequate transpor
tation facilities.
Stock Is Chief Industry.
"Stock raising is now the princi
pal industry of central Oregon and
at the present time there is no ade
quate or available means of rail
road transportation sufficiently or
adequately serving said industry in
said territory, either for the market
ing thereof or for the shipping to
said territory commodities necessary
for the carrying on of said industry;
"The convenience and necessity of
all parties engaged in such indus
try in said territory and the conven
ience and necessity of purchasers of
said products require that neces
sary, adequate and efficient means
of railroad transportation be afford
ed said territory.
"The shipment of products from
western, southern and central Ore
gon, including timber, livestock.
grain, fruit and hay, requires more
direct routes to market.
"The convenience and necessity of
all inhabitants of the state of Ore
gon require that proper, adequate
and efficient railroad communica
tion be provided between the cen
tral and the southeastern part of
the state of Oregon, and our princi
pal market Portland, Or. and the
state capital at Salem, Or. ,
More Routes Held Reeded.
"Prompt and effective adminis
tration of the state government anJ
of the exercise of their several
duties by the state and county of
ficials within the state of Oregon
require and demand that adequate
and efficient means of railroad
transportation be constructed by
more direct routes for the carrying
of passengers and freight between
centrai and southeastern Oregon
and the northwestern part of the
state of Oregon as prayed for.
"In the eveat of war and an at
tack by a foreign country on our
Pacific coast the completion of a
continuous and direct transporta
tion line between the junction
points with the Spokane, Portland
& Seattle railway and the Oregon
Washington Railroad &. Navigation
company at the Columbia river on
the north to Klamath Falls on the
south would afford an additional
line of communication to San-Francisco,
Los Angeles and other Cali
fornia points.
"At present 'but a single line of
railroad exists between northern
Washington and southern California.

Portland's Leading Clothier for Over Half a Century
Section of Line From South Junc
tion to Metolius to Become
a Public Highway.
Washington, I. C, Oct. 10. Ap
proval was given by the interstate
commerce commission today to the
petition of the Oregon Trunk rail
way for permission to abandon 29
miles of road from South Junction,
Wasco county, Oregon, to Metolius,
in Jefferson county. The Oregon
public service commission had pre
viously approved the application on
condition that the abandoned road
bed and a concrete bridge on the
line could be used as a public high
way. The Oregon Trunk line is the re
sult of a bitter rivalry some years
ago between the Hill and Harriman
interests over which should be the
first to tap the rich timber and
stock country of central Oregon.
The construction contest was one
of the most spectacuJar ever wit
nessed in the northwest. The two
interests raced against each other,
building up opposite sides of the
Deschutes river in a rush to reach
Bend, but the folly of constructing
two competing lines through this
sparsely settled territory became ap
parent to the builders by the time
Metolius was reached. There they
combined for the building of the
balance of the trackage to Bend.
vicinify point to the fact that the
crop will be somewhat lighter than
in previous years but that the actual
amount of money received will be
practically the same. Apple picking
is also progressing as fast -as pos
sible here with the shortage of help
and the difficulty experienced in
keeping pickers.

Breaking ice
by mail
A sales manager discovered that two-thirds of the time
of his salesman in talking to a prospect was consumed
in costly introductory talk.
Before the salesman actually got down to selling, he
consumed many valuable minutes proving that his firm
was able and responsible capable of living up to any
thing it undertook.
Now these things don't have to be said in the presence
of the prospect. ,On these points printing carries as
much conviction as conversation.
This sales manager used direct-by-mail advertising to
break the ice for his men, and records show that a dis
tinct saving of time was effected by this method.
