It la ealJ, and repnrlfl havo been
publlabed iti tlio Oregon I sui and nearly
nil of tho pnpcrH in Eastern OrcKOii,
that tho O. P.. & N. Co. havo bought
the Columbia Southern rallrond, and
that thin being true, it h very doubtful
-whether or not tho tetmlnus of that
road will ever leavo Bhnnlko.
Havo tho O. JR. & N, Co. really
bought tho Columbia Southern? Wo
havo been trying to find out the truth
of tho mutter, but ao far nro unuble to
confirm or deny tho report.
However, ono of tho officials of tho
road mentioned uald that ho had not
been notified of any change In the
ownornhlp of tho road, nor of any
change in the management, that Mr.
Ly tlu wag :iow In the East and until his
return tho whole quentiou is liable to
In au intorviow with some of the
Great Southerns officials relative to
tho road reaching into tho Agency
Plains country, It was said that there
is no qucsf.lon but that this road will
build Into the Deshcutes Valley via
Duftir, Tygh JRIdgo', Badger Creek and
Warm Spring lllver, thence up the
Deschutes and on fo Bend, all thisbvor
a grade not to exceed 2 per cent at any
ono point, it Is denied by soniethatany
rucIi grade can bo got, but one thing is
Curtain tho Great Houl hern ought to be
oncouiageil to build Into this field, it
would give us an outlet at a good
point aud one from where wo could al
ways expect to get the lowest possible
frefghtand passenger rates to tidewater,
without bulng hampered by portage or
other inconveniences for years to come,
there will be suflioient business, bow
ever, when developed, to give two
roads all they can do. and therefore we
hope to see both tbe'Oolumbia South
ern and tho Great Southern build their
lines through this country to our slater
Since writing the above, the follow
Ing from The Dalles Chronicle is right
in II tip, as stated in other Issues, The
Pioneer would rather suffer a scoop
occasionally than to be guilty of dis
seminating news that is not true.
"Upon his return from the East
President Lylle announces that thoee
meosley reporters are agaiu juggling
with the truth, and that there la abso
lutely nothing to tho report that be
went East to make arrangements to
sell tho Columbia Southern. He also
ays there Is little doubt of Its exten
sion In the near future, when Bend
wilt be the terminus. The building of
tho road (o Bend will more than dou
ble the prepent length of the road,
which Is TO milex, running from Biggs
to Bhauiko. Tho distance which will
bo covered from Bhaniko to Bend is
100 miles. Bend ia now growing rapid
ly owing to extensive Irrigation works
which aro being constructed there.
The Lost Returned.
Tho Pioneer evidently is wielding an
influence for good; at least we hope it
Is. In the last few weeks several
thipgs have turned Up missing in the
night a pair of stretchers, a door, and
other things. The stretchers, door and
the other things were advertised aa
missing through the columns of The
Pioneer and In due time were teported
as "returning In the night." The
parties wero all glnd to get the prop
erty back, and wo sincerely hope for
the benefit of 11 concerned that the
next time anything is wanted the in
tending borrower will ask for what he
wauts before taking 1U 'It may save
unpleasant thoughts and suspicions
:hal might lead lo trouble for Innocent
minded and aotihg people.

rcllent work In the Junior year of the State
U. 8. Cowles, one of our most promi
nent stock men, paid this office a
pleasant visit Tuesday. In speaking
of the killing of the sheep oh his sum
mer range, near the head of Mill Creek,
Mr. Cowlea said: About 2 o'clock In
the afternoon of the 20th of September
eight masked and armed men rode up
to H. M. Share, who had charge of the
sheep. The leader of the men said to
Share that If be made a move they
would shoot him; they then left two
men to watch Share and tho other six
rode around the sheep and commenced
shooting into them and did not quit
until they had killed eighty bead and
wounded a few more; tbey then rode
back to Share nnd told him to gather
the sheep if be wanted to and then
Mr. Cowlea says that he had no
warning of the outrage. His sheep
were grazing on government land,
where they bad been herded for years
post, and be supposed everything was
satisfactory. Ho also says that there
was unlimited range iu the Immediate
vicitiity of the killing that had been
lft by sheep men for the benefit of
the cattle men and that the killing
was absolutely unwarranted.
An Enjoyable Visit,
We acknowledge a pleasant visit at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. George
Osborne, of Culver, last Sunday. Mr.
Osborne is one ot the oldest settlers in
the Haystack country, settling there
By thrift and industry Mr. and Mrs.
Osborne have built up one of the best
and most substantial farm homes in
the country. This year, as for many
years past, they have raised an abund
ance of everything, including a fine
supply of apples, pears and other kinds
of fruit, aa well as vegetables, etc.
When leaving Mrs. Osborne Insisted
upon filling a good sized sack with
apples that are as sound and perfect as
it is possible for apples to be. We
certainly did enjoy onr visit and hope
to be permitted to renew the acquaint
ance In the near future.
A Model Missionary
Father Hlckey Is agaVtt wttlrtls. He
brought the sam smiling, helpful
countenance along with him, making
people glad to be fel.ive after having
talked with him. We earnestly wish
that more of our ministers would
pattern after him. He Is entertaining,
helpful, ovlal, kind and spiritual.
May he live loug In the work.

Owing to ft cohatant increase in patronage,
onr present building has become too small ;
therefore we are compelled to erect a large,
commodious store building, in which we shall
be better prepared to wait upon our numer

and we hope to occupy our new building by
January 1st with the largest stock of general

prices that defy competition.
