CHICAGO, April 27. The Chicago

The livening Telegram.
Through whftt method the transporta
tion committee of the Chamber of Com
merce will finally decide to net in order to
bring about construction of a railroad Into
Central Oregon is not' fully determined
at least the plant have not reached a stage
where they are leady for announcement
but a dtcwive campaign, In which the road
will be secured, U rwed, aid it is
hoped to be nble to do this with such dis
patch vvqjSl jcpord the Beginning of con
struction within a few months.
Confidence In the ability of the commer
cial bodies to do things has been encour
ae,ed by the success in completion of the
Portage railroad and vigorous manner In
which the Open River Association, link
ing its organization with the Chamber of
Commerce, has taken hold of the project
for securing boa s on the the upper river.
Portland business interests are no longer
content to be satisfied with the giowth of
trade without doing everything possible for
expansion of the territory by adding new
districts to production.
It is definitely .decided that attention
will first be concentrated on securing con
struction of a road into Central Oregon.
When that is accomplished, energies wli)
be turned to other sections, probably first
to the Nehalcm Valley. Organization is
a potent influence for achievement of pub
lic benefit, and the first steps to be taken
by th transportation committee is to
place the proposition on a business basis
financially. Publication in The Telegram
yesterday of the proposition suggested for
securing building of the road by guarantee
of interest until such time as traffic earn
ings would return profit to the investors
caused considerable discussion. One ol
three plans that have been proposed for
proceedure of the committee in its f Hurts
is aiong the same line, but if large invest
ment foilows the plans will be for a guar
antee of a large precentage of the capital
stock of the projected company, which
may be either independent or auxiliary to
some railroad already in the field.
In due time fell details of the plans
being worked out will be made, but it is
expected to have something definite as to
the fulfillment of the plans before they are
given publicity, It can be stated positively
that the prospects of a railroad into Cen
tal Oregon were never brighter than at
present, or more promising of early realization.
TltU DaMjKS, Oregon, April 27. Tho
wool situation In this part of Eastern
Oregon varlo? from partleully nil the
other woolgt owing sections of the stuto
from tho fact tho grower have thus
far declined to cmtraot their clips in
advance of the scheduled .Bales days,
Juno 0 and 23 mid July 6. Theoe sales
wlii be held us unual at Shaniko, tho
market place for tho wools grown In
Waseo. Crook, Wheeler and Grant
Counties, where the ohoioest clips of
the stuto are produced.
Blnceearly In the Winter, representa
tives of large woo' dealors-Jiave cau
vaaned this section along with other
parts of contracting tho wools in ad
vance of their being shorn, but their
oilers havo been repenteuly declined,
notwithstanding tho tempting price.
Tho first contract canvassers oflered
from 10 to 17 cents, and later lutlmuted
that 18 cents would bo paid. Within
the past fortnight oilers to contract at
20 cauls for tho strlotly choice wools
have been declined. Notwithstanding
that this Is an advance of ut least 5
cents per pound above tho average
rate paid for choice wools last season,
tho growers huve signified their prefer
ence to await the sealed bid aulea which
havo proved most satisfactory to them
since the system was inaugurated three
years ago.
Ir. comparing tho precentagoof ad
vanco on contracted wool In other por
tlono of the state with the prices paid
for the same last seatton, It would seem
that tho growers In this section are
JtiBlliltul In deolinlnir to contract at the
oilers made, nnd with the prospect of
uutisual competition tor onotco wonis,
It s anticipated that 20 cents will he
exceeded on the sales days. Shearing
will oe general by May 1 and tho ollp
promises to bo not only largo, but ot
good quality and condition.
Dallas, Oregon, April 20. Tho Polk
County WoolgrovveiB' Association sold
Ita pool of 100,000 pounds In Dallas to
day for JMJtf cents por pound. II. L.
Fenton, of Dallas, was the buyer.
Notwithstanding the whitewash given
the beef trust by Secretary Garfield in his
elaborate report, based on six months of
investigation, the great question remains
unanswered. Why the great cap between
pi ices of cattle on the hoof and prices of
the dressed meat when it reacnes me con
sumer? if cattle are cheiip, ought not the
meat made of them to be of correspond
ing cheapness and vice versa? That's
what both producers and consumers want
to know. Ex.
I have several fresh milch cows for
sale, and thoy r good oues, too.

Interview Given the Orcgonlan Crc
fltcs Erroneous Impression.

"We did not think we needed a railroad
up there in Crook Comity several weeks
ago, when the two large automobiles from
Portland began freigthting between Mad
ras and fiend on the new road that had
jnst been built,'' said L. V. Bailey a stock
man who lives near Paulioa, at the Im
perial Hotel yesterday afternoon. "One
of the automobiles could seat 15 passen
gers and had a wagon attached in which
was carried freight. The smaller machine
carried both passengers and freight.
"Early one morning two or three weeks
ago the large automobile started out load
ed with passengers and merchandize to
distribute to the small stores along the line.
The first hour or so everything went
along very smoothly, and the passengers
said it was better riding than in a train.
Hut as luck would have it, the automobile
broke down away out in sagebrush, miles
from any house. Well, the passengers
had to walk, and the automobile was
hauled back to Heislcr by three six-horse
"Of course we thought it was rather
strange that the machine should break
down on her maiden trip, but we thought
the other automobile would be all righr.
It started out soon after the other machine,
and it also broke down after it covered a
few miles. Another lot of of passengers
had to walk. Those machines are still up
at Heislcr waiting for some new machinery
to arrive from thn East Some of the
boys say they will ride in the automobiles
again, but say they will have their horses
tied on behind, so they won't have to walk
back home any more. ' Those automobiles
may be all right, but J prefer a railroad."
Without questioning the ver
acity of Mr. Bailey, in his inter
view with the verbose reporter
of the Oregonian, it is evident
tlint his information waB not
irathered first-hand, but ob-
taiued from several different
sources, and show somewhat of
a disposition to make an enter
esting aiticle out of a trivial
incident. Whether .the em
bellishments were added to the
piece by the reporter or furn
ished by the Paulina stockman,
they are erratic and misleading,
to the Bay the least.
The big automobile broke
down it is true, but it was only
few miles from Shaniko, and in
less than a week it was running
again and has been running
ever since, giving perfect satis
faction. Mr. Bailey gives ihe
impression that the auto would
be idle, probably for several
weeks, as he said new machin
ery would have to arrive from
the East before it could be op
How Mr. Bailej made two
automobiles out of one, we can
not conceive, unless he's eyes
see double, as Only one auto
atnrted from Shaniko, and it
never broke down at Hoislor at
all. The second trip out from
Shaniko to Madias was made
without accident of any kind.
Like Mr. Bailey, we greatly
prefer a railroad, but failing
that we will try to be content
with any other means which
will tend to give us quick com
munication with the railroad.

Clark Exposition, also a special auto
mobile number. The articles of Dr.,
Wolf Von Schierhrand, six in number, on
"The Coming Supremacy of the Pacific"
are also promised, and the plans con
templated by the publishers will, without
question, place The Pacific Monthly far
in advance, not only of present competi
tors, but also into the unreachable class of
periodical literature on the Pacifip Coast,

subscribers at the extremely low price of
$1 a year, We have made an arrange
ment with the publishers by which we arc
able to offer it in connection with The
