The Military Wagon Road.
During the paat two weeks fivt or six resi
dents of Silver Lake, Lake county, have pur
chased in Eugene City between $4000 and
15000 worth of goods and hauled them over
the Military wagon Mad to their homes. W
have been iuformed by these buyer that if the
road was iu a safe condition there would be
purchased in this place annually between
25,000 and (20,000 worth of supplies by peo
ple in that section. The question then for our
merchants to consider, is whether they are
going to ait idle with their hands folded and
ailow this trade to go elsewhere, or whether
thev will lake meaauret to assure them of this
imiiortant trade for years to come. The quet
tio.i, of course, will he asked, "What can l
don to control the patronage of the section
al luiled to!" It is easy to answer said problem.
We are informed upon good authority that
with the expenditure of the sum of 12000 th
road can lie put Iu such comlition next Muring
that will insure our merchants the much-da-sired
trade. Will our merchants rails the
amount and expend it by putting the mad in
repair? By projier Mjtition and reprexentAtion
we believe the county would help the matter
along by a lilieral appropriation. Who will
start the movement? Of course many will say
