fs a guarantee for the future, very su

Southern Oregon and Northern Cali

Railroad Surveyors, We under
stand that the party surveying the
route for the. Nevada Jk Oregon Rail
road have ere this reachpd the State
line on the West side of Goosn Lake,
and are to report at Reno on the 28th,
of Aug. We learn, too, that it is not the
intention of the company to extend the
survey North of the State line at the
present time, but that there is no rea
sonable doubt that they will construct
the line on the West side of the lake.
If the report of the. engineers is favor
able on their arrival at Reno, we may
expect, from the expedition which has
characterized their work so far. that
two years henc the shrill shriek of the
steam whistle will herald the advent
of the iron horse into our own valley.
We will look forward to this happy
event with no little eagerness and
anxiety, for with it will come the coin
cident and vigorous development of our
grain and stock products, and the econ
omy of transportation will do for us
what we can not possibly accomplish
for ourselves if left without it Then
with great profit we can materially
Yary our production and render of vast
utility the boundless resources with
which Nature has supplied us, but
which nvtftt lie dormant until the ad
vent of such assistance, Lakeview

sundry blacksmiths tools, wagon and

Chas. Carey are the principal sufferers.
August 27th theprptemp editor of
the Sentinel in company of A. C.
Jones and family and W. J. lyrnale
and several members ,ot his family
took a flying trip to-Batte creek, for
the ourJdsfl of attending the picnic
held under the auspices of the Cham
pions of Honor. Starting brigh and
early we were soon "well on our way,
with Eagle Point, sixteen miles away;
as the obiective "point" Hastening
along the road in one of Plymale's
superior family turnouts our-thinklhg
faculties were soon.arowed and we as
soon began to account (hi & manner at
least) for the increase,of profanity on
the part of people travelling our pub
lib roads. Gliding along Bmoothly, as
we thought our party was suddenly
Rtartled by a succession of irregular
movements on the part of our vehiche.
One b? one we received a knock against
our head-, enibling sewral if not all of
our company to see "stars" a sensa
tion by no means pleasant at seven
o'clock in the morning. When we
were told by our gentlemanly coach
man that we had only gouo through a
few Oregon "chuck holu3," that could
not be avoided, we uuoerslcod all
about it, and "put up" with the chas
tisement, undeserved, thosgB It was.
Butitdid not prevent us Iroift moralizing
a very little. O, who could fittingly
describe tho feelings of these travellers
toward that neglectful road overseer,
who brought all that misery upon us!
Fortunately for' him that he was- not
at that moment within reaching dis
tance. Wouldn't he have caught "fits!"
There is not the slightest excuse for
such bad' places to remain in the public
highways, and yet these Chuck holes
have been there since Spring. Verily
the road oversee Vvho can le uncon
cerned about this matter is a fit sub
ject of prayer.
It must be confessed that the road
system of Oregon is most abominable,
as is abundantly attested Vby -the des
truction of property broken .;vag
ons and worn out draft horses-. ' There
is j not another State in the Union
whero there is so little puiilic spirit
manifested to keep the roads in re
pair as Oregon. If there is any way
of inducing gentlemen in charge of
road work to do their duty, wo would
like to know it
On our trip to Eagle Point we
found other sections of the road grown
ovct with the so-called Spanish needle
wee'd, or in the language of Torn. Real),
dagger cucklo burs. This noxious
weed is worse than the Canada thistle,
and if no steps are taken to extermin
ate it, it will be only a question of
tiuie"when farming in Rogue River
valley will be rendered impossible by
this wonderfully rank and thorny
weed. The Uregon statute oook con
tains a law, making it obligatory upon
road overseers to cut down this nox
ious weed wherever found in tho pub
lic highways. Our own citizen, the
Hon. Tom. Beall, whilst & member of
the Oregon legislature: procured the
passage of this good Tawl'iut to Ob
serve the inlmense crop of this dag
ger weed along most of tho public
highways in the Vallev the proof is
uot wanting that this fa but a dead
letter upon the statue bodk.
We reached Eagle Point sufficiently
early in the day to enable us to see
the sights of towmand its immediate
surroundings. The first thing to at
tract our attention was the clear, beau'
tiful mountain stream flowing sfriftly
by town. Owing td the fact that the
large county bridge, which crosses
Little Butte creek at this point was
being rebuilt and impassable, we had
to ford the stream a short distance be
low. The father abrupt descent into
and ascent dut of the steam, convinced
us that there is room for vast volumesof
water. The melting snows of Mount
Pitt, situated about twenty miles to
the ast of here, supplies this stream
with its abundance the year round.
The topography of the" earth's sur
face, the fine belt df farming land, the
splendid townsite, the magnificent water-power
and mild climate, all con
spire to insure a prosperous if not
brilliant future. All these advantages
taken into account we see good reason
for the hope that anituates the hearts
of the proprietors of Eagle Point
Besides, it is situated on the only
practical railroad route between Rose
burg and the Klamath Lake country,
It is a tioticable fact which mar have
escaped public attention.uhat the head
waters of the Sduth -Umpqua and
.the headw' atersbf Trail creek are
but a stone's throw ' from each other,
and the two streams are separated from
each other by a low divide and an
easy grade. Trail creek empties into
Rogue river, a short distance"-- above
Eagle Point and the. ronto aj Little
Butte and into the Klamath Lake
country is no more difficult than the
pass through tho mountains which
separate the Willamette from the
Umpqua valley, and through which
the railroad is now built and running.
The Trail creek route shortens the dis
tance between Roseburg and Linkville
greatly, and is well known to the rail
road authorities, the survey having
been'rriade some years ago, and has
been resUrveyed quite recently. This
route as it proceeds southeast leaves
Mount Pitt to the left Is it any
wonder that with sUch a favorable
gograpf iical location the citizens of
Eagle Point should loot to the future

The plat of the tdwft is recorded in

the town we hope provision has been
made to lay out according to the points
of the compas,.with wirfcf streets, good
sized blooks, allowing a" -0 foot alley to
run through center of bicck both from
East to West and from North to
school house,one house of worship
(Catholic), and two places of entertain
ment for travellers. -The public hall
over the blacksinithshop supplies a
want long felt, and public gatherings of
any nature are held here.

that the farmers expect only half a

corn looked splendid and promised a
