Central Oregon &' Pacific
Starts Crew East From
Promoters of v Corporation As
rrt They Have Financial Back
ing for Construction of Line
Across State of Oregon.
BROWNSVILLE. Or.. Sept. 4. (Spe
cial.) C. H. Warner, one of the direct
or, and the proraotor In charge of the
field work for the Central Oregon A
Pacific Railway Company, recently In
corporated, started a crew of surveyors
today the preliminary survey
of the proposed new railroad eastward
from Brownsville. The line will pass
through the center of the Calapooia
Valley, touching Crawfordsvllle and
Halley. and the promoters say that con
struction work will commence as soon
as It is possible to arrange matters for
work to begin. It Is proposed to be
gin construction work at Brownsville
and build east as rapidly as possible.
Franklin T. Griffith, of Portland, at
torney for the company, stated recent
ly that the proposed road Is to run
from Albany to Ontario, on the O. R.
A N.. In Eastern Oregon.
The three men named In the direc
torate of the company are Franklin T.
Griffith. Porsey B. Smith and C. H.
Warner. Griffith has handled the rail
road end of the Portland Railway. Light
& Power Conjpany's legal business for
gome years. Smith was formerly as
sistant general superintendent of ths
O. R. A X. Co. and is now general man
ager for the Open River Transportation
Company, a company in close sympathy
with a project for a railroad from On
tario to Coos Bay.
The promoters of the Central Oregon
Pacific will not say who Is behind
the proposed railroad, but declare they
have funds with which to carry on the
work, and hope to begin construction
eastward from this city this Fall.
It is a fact known to many railroad
men that the most feasible pass across
the Cascade Mountains from Central
Oregon Is what is known as the Cala
pooia Pass. It Is also equally as well
known that this pass has been thor
oughly Investigated and Is now a sub
ject for the thoughts of the men who
are at present laying the foundations
for future railroad-building In Oregon.
The construction of this- line would
open up a rich field of timber in East
ern Linn County and Lane County, and
would give the Blue River mining dis
trict the Impetus that It needs to bring
It to the front as one of the great dis
tricts of Western Oregon. It is found
that the ores below the water level
In this district are base, and while car
rying heavy values, cannot be handled
profitably without a railroad to carry
the ores to a smelter.
A study of the map of Central Ore
gon brings to mind the thought that
the Central Oregon & Pacific could very
easily be a part of the Hill scheme to
reach Coos Bay with his Oregon Trunk
line, now building up the Deschutes.
Another link In the railroad chain
could easily be figured out in the pro
posed railroad from Eugene to the Slus
law and Coos Bay, the survey for which
Is now being made.
weeks away, the prospects for attendance
during the coming year are exceptionally
bright. The Indications are that the
freshman class will number at least 800
members and the total attendance for all
of the departments at Eugene will be 25
or 30 per cent terger than last year.
The rapid growth of Eugene during the
past two years and the . building of a
number of student club houses, both for
men and for women, has almost solved
the problem of room and board. The
number of first-class places available this
Fall is the largest In the history of the
university and a much greater proportion
of them are for women than ever before.
The university has prepared a full list
of places, which will be available for
mailing within a day or two.
During the past Summer much improve
ment work has been done on the uni
versity grounds and buildings. Xew
walks and paths have been laid out and
the woodwork of buildings repainted
; tlonal books have been added to the li
brary during the Summer, necessitating

Horsey B. Smith Refuses, However,
to Announce Associates.
As Intimated In the above dispatch. It
Is strongly suspected her that the Cen
tral Oregon & Pacific Railway is a Hill
property. The construction of such a
road easterly from Brownsville up the
Calapooia River would form a natural
connecting link to the extension by Hill
of his Central Oregon road across the
elate to Coos Bty. That Hill has de
signs on Cooa Bay is generally believed
and It would not be surprising should It
develop that the operations of the sur
veying crew now In the flld is the
preliminary move by him In th proposed
Invasion of that territory.
"We are not prepared Just now to an
nounce our associations." said Dorsey B.
Smith, one of the Incorporators of the
Central Oregon & Pacific Railway, last
night, wben asked to confirm the report
that his company was being backed by
Hill. "The survey we are making extends
up the Calapooia River. In fact, there
Is a deslrabli field for railroad construc
tion In both directions from Browns
ville. We propose to give th people of
that sec-'on of Linn and Lane counties

sane time reach a tonnage which will
Justify the construction of such a road

and that very shortly."

construction crews of the road builders.
At last Bend Is sure of a railroad, say
the promoters of the board, with "dirt

The pathos of a pioneer's life is
strikingly Illustrated in the story
brought to Quesnel by L. Knuston,
last heard of at the time of his de
parture last Spring for the heart of
the Nechaco country, for which desti
nation he set out on foot with his wife,
the latter wheeling a baby In Its per
ambulator, while her 'sturdy husband
"packed" the blankets and supplies,
all being necessarily limited to the
barest necessities. They arrived at the
Nechaco completely worn out after
numerous thrilling adventures and
countless hardships, to find that the
ranch in which they had invested -all
their hard-earned savings and which
had been pictured to them by the real
estate agents as little short of an earth
ly Eden was anything but what they
had been led to expect being prac
tically valueless for farming and In
capable of providing the simplest means
of life.
Knuston and his loyal wife, having
pinned their faith on their newly-purchased
home, were heartbroken, as well
as destitute, and with true pioneers'
compassion for them, the settlers got
together and raised by private sub
scription sufficient to "keep them going
and set them on their feet for a little
while." Their difficulties multiplied,
when, shortly after, a child was born
prematurely, no doubt in consequence
of the experiences which the unfor
tunate mother had undergone on the
trail, and instead of recovering health
and spirits, Mrs. Knuston sank from

Poultry Show to Be Extensive.
SEATTLE, Sept. 4. (Special.) What
will undoubtedly be the most extensive
poultry show ever held In the West
will be conducted in conjunction with
the livestock show of the Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
Exposition, September '
27 to October 11. According to J. L.
Anderson, superintendent of the poultry
department of the exposition, over 6000
birds and fully 1500 pigeons have been
entered by the different exhibitors.
The various street railway companies of the United States, on account of deaths and accidents due to
bein struck or run over by streetcars, pay out about twelve and a half million dollars annually in dam
ages" which, it will be seen, is equivalent to 5 per cent on an investment of two hundred and fifty mil
lions ($250,000,000.00) each year.
From these startling figures we are enabled to gain some idea of the need of a protecting device from
a financial point of view, but from purely humanitarian motives, and leaving the question of finances en
tirely out of the account, the strenuous demand for an effective fender everywhere that electric cars and
automobiles are in use is intense, and as you are perhaps aware, an effective car fender has never hereto
fore been produced; in fact moskstreet railway companies long ago gave up the fender question as utterly
unsolvable, while a successful "pick-up" had come to be Regarded as a mechanical impossibilty.
The standard streetcar fender, a Portland invention, affords absolute protection from the impact of th
car to the person who may be struck, and is the first and only fender in existence provided with an infalli
ble pick-up that can bo relied on absolutely to pick the person up from the pavement and carry him safely
along until the car can be brought to a standstill.
'The Standard Fender Company is incorporated, with a capital stock of 200,000 shares, par value $1.00
per 6hare, and is selling a limited number of shares of stock, solely to promote the general introduction of
this meritorious invention in every city and country where a safety device of this character is needed.
For this purpose we offer a limited amount of stock this week at 75c per share.
This offer is open only during the week ending Saturday, September 11th. Next week stock will posi
tively advance to 85c per share.
Remember, you have the opportunity all this week of securing the most valuable and desirable stock
on the market at less than 5 per cent of its actual value, and bear in mind that our life-sheet "pick-up"
