The Workmen Are Without Funds
The men who have Ihwo working fur
Contractor Hay 90 the Mohawk
brunch of tbe Southern Pacific, !
serve tbe greatest sympathy. Without
money, after working all winter In the
mud ami wet, actually guttering in
some instances for food, which they
re compelled to get by asking for
handouts, these hmie-t toileta are In
need of anything w Inch can be given
Contractor Bay haa returned to
Portland, aud made practically no pay
menu while here. It la moat unfor
tunate, as Bays haa unquestionably
loet money au the contract, and even
tbe workmen do not questiou bla hon
esty, or willingness to pay, if be could
aecute the money. Virtually every
thing has been attached.
Attorneys Thompson A Hardy and
L. Bllveu have over $1000 In tlme-
nhecks for collection, and are doing a
work for charity In trying to get some
thing for the men.
The Southern Paclflo should s. that
these laborers receive tin ir pay. It is
a duly the company owes to tbe men
who have null led their roid, to Line
counl.v and Eugene. It is tiel eved
here thai ibis will be brought about,
and that the men v. ill finally receive
what Is justly due them.
It has teh reported on the streets of
this city today, without being con
United, that Mr eHays has given up
the work, having sunk all he bad iu
this Job, every phase or which has
been disastrous to him.
About 20 of tbe men went to Port
land tbla afternoon, tbelr passage being
furnished by tbe Southern Paclflo.
The rest ef tbe laborers will remain
here In the hope of securing work of
some klud, and will also be on band to
give what aid they can In tbe collec
tion of olalms.
Another Military Comyany.
The military spirit is strong In Lane
county, and especially so ainoe the
return of company C from tbe Philip
pines. Lane county now ban two
militia companies, one organized after
tbe volunteers left, and the other tbe
volunteers themselves organizing
under National Guard laws for continu
ance of military work.
Recently an application baa gone in

Mr. Bryan on his recent lour of the
"Hon. R. 8. Sheridan returned home
this morning, having accompanied Mr.
Bryan as far as Walla Walla, Wash.
He met the distinguished gentleman at
the state line, and states that tbe re
ception accorded him In Western and
Eastern Oregon was enthusia-tic, and
there was no exception at any town.
At Salero, ten thousand people heard
him speak and at other points the
crowds were proportional to tbe size of
tbe towi s. At Walla Walla, a down
pour of rain compelled tbe crowd to go
indoors and tbe two largest balls In
tbe city were able to accommodate
: only a small portion of tbe crowd that
j turned out to bear tbe speech, Bryan
speaking In both halls."

"I probably have an elephant ou my

kane mining operator, to a Guard re
Mr. Dennis Is operating the Blsek
Unite Mining Compauy's property,
east of Cottage Grove ou a bond, and
came to t n is city to purchase some Iron
rails from Messrs. Holden Bros, of the
Eugene Street railway, to use In bis
development work at the mines. Tbe
visit resulted In more. Mr. Dennis Is
now owner ef the Eugene Street Rail
way, IU track, rolling slock, frauoblae,
mules and all appurtenanoea belonging
thereto, whloh fact ocoasiouei the
Just what Mr. Dennis will do with
tbe property Is undecided at present
He will continue to operate It for a
time, at least, aa It now etands. Mr.
Dennis could give no hlut aa to what
the future would have In sIoi-h for tbe
property. He thinks that by flxiugup
the roadbed and giving au Improved
service, tbe line as It now stands will
pay better returns. So far as any future
operation of tbe road is concerned M r.
Dennis would say nothing, as be dont
know himself, having purchased the
property almost on the spur of tbe mo
ment. Mr. Dennis is a mining man, and a
busy one at that, so that the operating
of street railways Is somsthlng uew to
him. He has stated however, that If
power could be secured reasonably, a
line from Kugeue through Falrmount
to Springfield might be a good invest
ment. Or It might be that be will find
It necessary to discontinue the service
Speaking further regarding the
matter, Mr. Dennla aUted that in
reaching out by email motor or electric
1 1 nea for trade adjacent to a growing
city, such aa Kugene, the business men
and capitalists of the city who are di
rectly Interested should own and con -
trol tbe transportation ways, thus In
suring Interested attention to detail.
Mr. Dennis will tear up tbe track on
Willamette street south of Eleventh
and ship to tbe mines together with
tbe other rails stored at tbe "power"
house, to use in bis development work.
The ownership of the street car sys
tem ohanges hands after 1 1 years op
eration. The Messrs. Holden bare
bad many things to oonlend with In
tbe conduct of the Hue, but the opera
tion of tbe system baa probably is-cn
all that the receipts would Justify, and
even better. Extensions to the line
and improved servltv would, III all
likelihood, result In a raveuue-paylng
road. The people would hall with de
