Senator Bourne Will Urge Govern

Prominent citizens of Oregon, notably
Governor Chamberlain, Mayor Harry
Lane, W. M. Ladd. F. M. Batchelor, R.
W. Hoyt and others Interested in the de
velopment of Oregon's mining resources,
have requested that the United States
Government continue Its investigations, so
well begun by Profensor Lindgren, of the
United States Geological Survey. It has
been said that these investigations are
to be completed at an early date, for as
Professor Lindgren says in his prelimin
ary report: "Four months is a short time
to examine such an extensive territory,
such a wealth of mineral deposits. . . .
This report is only preliminary, recon-
nuisance work. ... It has not been possi

The following letter Just received by F.

ELK HERD IS CUT DOWN
Open Season Proves Disastrous to
Antlered Herd In Blue Mountains.
GRANITE, Or., Oct. 19. (Special.) The
ripen season for hunting elk,- which has
Just closed, has proved quite successrui
from the sportsman's point of view, but
has been equally disastrous to the elk.
For a number of years 30 elk have been
ranging on the headwaters of the Orand
Ronde and North Fork of the John Day
River, and with the opening of the elk
season hunters flocked to that locality,
each equipped to get the portion allowed
to him by law. At least 10 of the animals
are known to have been killed during the
season. And the others have been scat
tered over the mountains . till scarcely
any trace can be found of them.

counter to the Oregon Trunk, the only
railroad that now threatens to enter the
Harriman preserves, as Central Oregon
has come to be known. The Harriman

river 100 miles to the big level plain of
Central Oregon. Danger threatened the
Harriman interests wtien the - Oregon
Trunk entered the Deschutes canyon and
the legal department was put in motion
to head off the threatened invasion. This
failed, for the Oregon Trunk is now pos
sessed of rights as far up the Deschutes
as the mouth of White riven a distance
of 45 mile9.
Lest the Oregon Trunk continue its tri

Prof. O'Keefe not only claims to have made many wonderful cures of this dread disease, but has pos

born, 1114 Salmon street, who had consulted various specialists in Los Angeles, Chicago and St. Louis,
all giving him up, came to Prof. O'Keefe several months ago, apparently a hopeless case; suffering with
a form of the disease termed as stone cancer of the neck., The patient, as far as the cancer is concerned,
is practically cured, and with the proper care and attention would today be a well man.
