Crater Lake Tourists. -So far the
season for visiting Cr.iter or Sunken
Lake, Oregon's greatest curiosity, has
been remarkably favorable". Quite a
number of mountain parties have been
there, others are there now, and still
others are on the eve of going to that
wonder-land. Crater Lake is about 80
miles from Jacksonville in a northeast
erly direction. Most of the parties
who have gone to the lake this season
hare taken in Fort Klamath, and the
falls of Rogue River, and the route
aosen is that by way of Ashland,
Linkville, the Klamath Indian reserva
tion and the military road down Rogue
river to Jacksonville. A party of 14
tourists left here yesterday consisting
of Messrs. McDonougb, Cooksey and
Wright, and their respective families,
to be gone several weeks. They took
the Rogue river route via Bybee's
Tun It. R Survey. The several
"surveying parties are still running their
lines in search for tho best route into
this valley. Hurlburt's party com
pleted tho survey through the Grave

Howard party at Chavner's bridge.
Howard ran two lines from this vallpy

Gold Hill distance three miles
necessitating a hundred foot grade to
the mile; the other was run around
by way of the windings of Rogue
river to Chavner's bridge. The line
down around the bend of the river.
was run just above high water mark
on a grade of 15 feet to the mile. The
road around the bend is aboufsix
miles longer than by way of Gold Hill
pass. Tho surveyors are waiting for

The Perils of Cow Creek Hill.
The wagon road leading over the di
vide between Cow creek and Wolf
creek runs up and down the steepest
grade on ihe stage route from Rose
burg to Jacksonville, and is the terror
of the freighting community. On tho
11th of August a "team and wagon
loaded with 4,000 pounds of freight, in
charge of Charles Logan son-in-law of
B. F. Reeser of Ashland, came down
this mountain in a hurry. Logan had
fairly started down the grade when
the breaks slid off the wheels, and
the wagon horses and driver came down
at lightning speed. In the awful de
scent one of the horses stumbled and
fell, the wagon passing over him, and
he was dragged along for quite a dis
tance before tin impetuosity of ihe
wagon and remaining horses were
checked by a resisting fir-tree. The
way wagon and freight, harness and
horses were staEtored was a caution;
and the only wonder is that the driver
and horses were not killed outright.
Tho track where the horse had been
dragged was pointed out to tho writer
of these lines, who passed over this
portion of the road a few days after
the accident happened.
The Railroad Officials. Mr.
Koehler, General Manager of the O.

of obtaining a birdseye view of South
em Oregon and Northern California.
Mr. Hurlburt was with him, and with
the niJ of a map of the country made
by himself for the company nine years
ago, gave the railroad magnate a com
plete understanding of the topography
of the whole section in sight, from the
,Umpqua to Shasta, and from tho east
ern ranges of the Cascades to the Coast
mountains. From the summit of the
Bulto it could bo clearly seen that the
toll road is through the lowest pass in
the Siskiyous. On Saturday morning
Messrs. Koehler and Hurlburt startod

be chosen, (which is not likeK-, how

Graupner was driving from Jackson

when near Henry Blecher's farm his

a wagon coming from the opposite di

a break-neck speed, and not being able
to manage them Mr. Graupner was
hurled out of his wagon and violently
fell to the ground, dislocating his left
shoulder. The sufferer was brought
to Jacksonville, where Dr. Aiken put
tho dislocated member "to rights."
The horses were caught by the neigh
bors and taken to their home.
