The first survey for railroad purposes
was made' by John Hulburt in 1SSI.
The stirvev was made from Coos Bar to
Roseburg, and from this city np the
north prong of Deer creek and over the
divide to the Xorth Vinpqna river in an
almost direct line to the pa.s south .of
Mount Thielsen Utl he broad plain in
'the northern part of Klamath county.
His survey extended to a point north of
the Klamath marsh. In the year 1900
a party of surveyors in the interest of
Xew York railroad magnates, started
out from Salt Lake City, Utah, and ran
a line running south of Salt Lake and
thence in a northwesterly direction to
Terrace, where the Central Pacific line
was crossed, and continuing tth'e survey
the line aa ran cut across the northeast
corner of Nevada into Idaho where it
struck the middle fortof the Owyhee
river, to near the junction of Crooked
creek.. The line as run from that point
was nearly a direct line westward, leav
ing Harney lake to the north and Cedar
mountain to the south. Continuing be
tween Silver and Summer bikes to the
north of Klamath marsh ani to the
fountain head of the XoKth Umpqua
where it ceased. Copies of this survey
are on file in Philadelphia, Xew York
and Chicago, and just as soon
the Xew Rock Island, Denver and
Salt Lake City line is . finished, or
even before, work will commence on
the extension from Salt Lake City
Roseburg on the route indicated. It is
said bv railroad men who have looked
at the survey from Salt Lake City
the pass south of Mount Thielsen to lie
the best road survev ever made from the
Rocky mountains to the Cascade
Sierra Nevada mountains, as the sur
vey for scores of miles at a stretch runs
across a -comparatively level country
and could be built for less than one
half the cost of the Central Pacific 'road
and for less than the Oregon Short line,
and the distance from Denver to Pacific
porta would be shortened from two
miles by the contem
THE NOVEMBER ELECTION.
On Tuesday the fall election in nearly
every state of the Union was - held. In
the east the Republicans "owing to labor
troubles and strikes lost heavily, for tens
. of thousands of citizens voted with the
Democratic party. This was broogh'
about by the quasi promise that if the
Democrats had a majority in Congress
that the party" would advocate verv
radical measures regarding government
ownership of the coal mines. The
iJemocratic party has always been very
long on promise and short on payment.
but their promises of altmian benefit
to be derived by the laboring classes
has always caught votes not withstand
ing lue lact mat everv time me demo
crats got in power they found the
laboring masses with a full dinner pjil
and at the end ot their administration
the pail was empty and suffering and
starvation resulted in all the Eastern
cities. In the election the Republicans
expected to lose many seats in Congress
and tlie most sanguine exiectations
were to have a majority of from 15 to 20.
From all reiwrts it seems that the
majority will be 20. While the loss was
heavy in the Eastern states, the west
enjoying Republican prosperity voted
Vt increase the blessings they
. enjoyed and California, Idaho,
Washington, North and South Dakota
and Montana wheeled into line
while Colorado the borne of sil
ver fanaticism gave two republican con
gressman odt of four. Nevada with one
congressman went eilver-pop-deroo-
' cratic; Chicago has gone Republican
and New York ' state by about 15,000,
No doubt but what the personal popa
larity of President Roosevelt and ids
prompt action in bringing , about arbi
iration between the coal miners and
operators in the east had much to do in
preventing a regular landslide to the
socialistic ideas promulgated by the
New York politieans and the leaden of
other movements inimical to the Ko-
publican principles of good government
The majority in Congress throws the
entire burdea of resjtonsibility for jieace
and prosierity for the next two years
upon the party that is slow to promise
but quick on fulfillment and the pledge
made by the Republicans before the
election will lie most faithfully carried
oat in all parts of the UnitedStates' vast
domain. One principle that the elec
tion has settled is: The Philippines
w illtorever remain as territory or states
of the United States of America.
"W E TOLD YOU SO."
. When Chai H. Fisher severed bis
relations with the Eosebarg Review
B8 its editor, and it we sunonnped
that with R. S. Sheridun he would
become associated in the publication
of the Boise Capital News, a 'paper
to be" made the official state organ of
the Idaho Democracy, then in full
power, the Plaikdealeb predicted
that at Idaho's next 6late election
the Republicans woold elect their
entire stale and congressional tickets.
By tb. authentic election returns
now at bard from that stale the elec
tion of Tuesday has proven our
prophesy of two years ago, alas, too
true, the Republicans having won a
signsl victory throughout the state.
Wiib such smHli caliber, nnscrnpn
Jous ward politicians as the manage
ment of i be Boise Capital News and
II McBroom, of the Grangeville
paper, pacipalatiag the Democrato
politics of Idaho the result could not
have been otherwise. However, the
people of Idaho 6eeni to have dropped
onto the fellows much quicker than
they did in this county and state,
where they, through their question
able politics wrecked local and conn
ty democracy and enabled the Re
pnblicans to carry tue day against
all odds. This combination of
Democratic tricksters would place
old Missouri or even Texas in the
Republican column if allowed to
direct the Democracy of . those states
through a few campaigns.
A FINE SHOWING.
It will be observed by reference to
the recent semi-annnal statement of
the county's finance? that during the
past six months $4,000 of the coun
ty's indebtedness was paid off, re
gardless of the extra heavy expenses
incurred by the county, in road and
bridge building. It will also be ob
served that the receipts of the
County Clerk's office alone fcr the
month of October aggregated f-WO, a
record that has never been equalled
in the count t's history. .Thus, will
be seen the results of a roKre98vtS
business-like Republican administra
tion. New roads and bridges are
being built, county improvements are
being kept up in first-class shape and
the county indebtedness is being re
duced at the rate of nearly $1000 per
month. What a contrast to the old
Union and Democratic regime, when
county improvements were at a
standstill and the county's bridges
were decaying and collapsing, while
the county indebtedness was only de
creasing at about the same rate it is
today. The old stereotyped cam
paign assertion that "a republican'
county conrt is running the county
in debt at the rate of $1000 a month,'
would hppear humorous today.
The Eugene Register comes to
our table m a greatly enlarged and
improved form. It has been in
creased from four to six pages an 4
has a complete Associate Press ser
vice, which enables it to distance all
contemporaries in newsservice.. It
is now one of the very best and most
newsy dailies in the stale south of
Portland and we congratulate the
publishers upon their enterprise and
well deserved success.
Dangerous Railroad Crossing.
The lives and projierty of our citizen
and farmers are daily in danger at the
railroad crossing on Lane street in this
city, and the council should take some
action to comjel the S. P. Co. ti place a
flag-man theie. to warn the pnblic wh-n
a train is approaching, an whether or
not it is safe for them to pass.-
At the present time there are" five side
tracks besides the main line - crossing
Lane street, and the yard, is risnally so
blocked that there are a sjring of box
cars on each of the side tracks, allowing
only the distance of the mad war for
passage of teams and pedestrians and
closing out any view whatever ' to warn
tltemofthe approach of a train or an
engine, making it a very dangerous
crossing, especially if one haptens to
have a fractious team, as it lias oecured
several times that the driver being un
able to see the approaching train has
been caught with his horses head almost
against the train barely stopping j time
to save disaster. All other crossings
should be supplied with warning bells,
asjenoene ami several others cities
this state are at present.
Some action should 1 taken before it
is too late.
The roads are still passable.

Ashland Abduction Results in a Wed

The closing chapter of the sensational
affair related on our first vwige is as fol
Portland, Nov. 5. Miss Myrtle Tar
kor, the 17-year old girl, who so mystcri
ously disappeared from her Ashland
home late last week, was located in this
city yesterday by her father nnd..lVU
Com Its, of Ashland, the joung man ac
cused of her abduction. The two pro
ceeded at once to Justice Reid's court
where they were married, which closes
the last chapter iu a rather sensational
affair and is the sequel to the father's
hunt for his child. The couple arranged
for the marriage by appointment .. the
day before, and appeared before -the
justice while he was on the bench. He
adjourned long enough to tie tho knot,
with those concerned in the court case
as onlookers, and pressed into service as
witnesses W. W. Watt-; and C. A. Mc
Carger. S. A. Parker, father of the girl,
was present and kissed tho bride in an
affectionate manner after the ceremony.
Whatever animosities inight have arisen
between the contracting parties before

Mnee coming to Oregon the editor bus
been asked unite frequently by cattle
and sheep men what kind of grass, he
would advise to be ilanted in. South
west Oregon, aud after several weeks
study of the question we lelieve Uuit fo
all purposes the above grass is lst for
the livestock industry, but at the same
time it is a terrible nuisance in purely
agricultural land ; and the editor writes
thus from actual personal exierience.
We have been shown several kinds of
grass in Oregon that was lielieved to ll?
Johnson grass but was not; and per
haps as our knowledge of the plant may
be of service to ot.-.era we will slate :
The seed of the Johnson grass is the
same in size, form and color as canary
seed or the seed put up in packages and
lalteled canary. sted for birds. The plaut
thrives best in a deep damp soil and as
it is a very rank and free grower it
rapidly drinks up the moisture from the
soil. We know that it fre-iuentlv throws
up strong shoots or stems from the earth
tliat will grow three inches in 24 hours.
If we were going to sow grass for past nre
with the idea of killing out weeds or
ferns it would lie this grass. On our
farm we have known it to grow six feet
high in the swales and average four feet
in height all over the field at cutthig
time, which is when the plant U iu
Moom. In Oregon, we have no doubt
but what in favored localities it would
make two or three crops each year."
When cured on the stein cattle will eat
it to the gronnd and when cut for hay
we have known it to make two, if not
three cuttings and averaged 2 tons to
the acre and sometimes much more at
each cutting. If it gets startol in the
farming land we are fully iersnadod
that it would lie next to iinssil.le to
clear the land of it exesptby devoting
the bind to constant pasturage for sheep
for two or three years for if the grass is
not allowed to ripen seed it dies out a
the roots. - Tlie method of projia-a't ion

is run under the soil. These stems in
rich land are frequently as large around
as a mans middle finger, and have linen

the surface. On sueh tulierous stems or
roots are numerous sprout eyes -which in
turn send np irrasjj stems to tlie surface
and they in turn form bunches and
send out more tuiicrs. The lnl-2ras
roots are excellent ho feed but hogs
have never been known to till the crop
as they only cultivate the land for the
grass to prow in. For several vears iist
on the plains of north-west Texas, it
was onr custom to commence to plow np
the Johnson grass fields in the months of
February and March ami let all the cat
tle on the far m follow the plow aud eat
the tuberous stems and llrv would thrive

the amount f milk iif three or four days.
The cattle would leave enoughof the bro
ken stems in the ground to make another
crop of hay. We cut as much as two
tons of cured hay from an acre of land
in Jnly from land sowed with seed in
tlie latter part of March. The grass we
fully believe would stand the drought of
the summer months and afford splendid
pasturage for live sbek of all kinds. In..
Texas it is ate ravenously by cattle,
horses, sheep and goats and as we have
said hogs will thrive on the tuberous
roots and make a splendid growth but
they will not get very fat on the diet.
The grass we lielieve would make a good
return if disced in on the scrub oak
land or in any part of the state west of
the Cascade range clear of dense timber
or brush. .We have known of the seed
being sown on w hich the eockleburs
almost covered the ground, and it killed
out the eockleburs. In some parts of
Texas it is an offense to plant the seed
or to drive over the public; roads with a
load of Johnson grass hay liecatiKC
when it once gets starled in the cotton,
sugar and rice lands it seems to lie im
possible to kill it out.
We intend to continue article of in
terest to farmers and stock raisers, from
week to week and aive actual practical
experience along the line indicated.
