BUILDS TO DUFUB.
Rails and equipment for the.
first 80 miles of the Great
Southern, the railway which is
to extend from The Dalles to
Dufur, for the present, have
been purchased, traffic arrange
ments made with the 0. It. &
N. Co., and it is positively
promised that fall wheat of 1905
will be brought into the north
ern terminal by this road.
Quietly the promoter of the
road have beeu at work, but

that rails and equipment, cost
ing $150,000, had been ordered
from the Colorado Fuel & Iron
Co. through theJPortlaud. agents.

lumbia river, the two roads are
separated by th3 Deschutes
river and a distance of 80 miles.

Portland and act as genera
manager. Julius L. Meier ie

Seattle, and T. H. Johnson, of

road will be ordered, within a
few weeks. The rails con
tracted for are heavy, as the
road is to be standard gauge.
The line parallels the O. It. &
N. track from the Dalles as far
as Seufert's Biding, then strikes
southwest and follows Fifteen
mile Creek, affording a com
paratively easy grade to Dufur.
Terminal arrangements, have
been made at The Dalles, and
the road will be in such close
touch, with the O. R. & N. Co.
that its tickets will be sold by
the O. R. & N. office in The

company to extend the line be

RETUUNING PROM OANADA,
It is reported that many
American farmers who went to
the Canadian Northwest in the
last few years are already re
turning. Just what the trouble
is has not yet been clearly ex
plained, but hundreds have
abandoned their Canadian in
vestments to again become rest
dents of their old slates. It is
.seldom that a much-boomed
region comes up to expectations
the bag of gold is always at
the end of the rainbow the
land of promise always just
over the mountain, but each is
most enjoyable at a distance
and the charms vanish on near
approach. The United States
is n mighty good country to
live in until a better one shows
up if, indeed, there is a better
one. Sometime the . Canadian
Northwest may be a great agri
cultural region, but the pioueer
period cf development is always
one ofrbitter trials and disap
