Last -Monday evening, Peter
ltoofer, who was serving a
why a. railroad building into
CvntnUQregon will find it a
profitable 'investment. (Talk as
much as you can, .bettor that
than- to say nothing.' -But let it
be a-strong, convincing talk
and eventually a railroad -will
crown the efforts of those work
ing for the development of Cen
tral Oregon. Crook county at
this time has more grain sown
than ever befote, and there is
almost no doubt but there will
be record crops, and such being
the case the production will be
largely more than can be used
for home consumption.
Let the railroad promoters
known this and they will liud
means to give us transportation
for our surplus. Railroad want
freight to haul and they gener
ally wait till a country proves
iis capacity for production.
This couutry had an over
production last year, but the
Bend irrigation proposition took
most of the surplus. This 3eai
will see a yield of grain fai
greater than any interior con
sumption can use and teanu-
hauling grain to Shaniko for a
market will be a condition that
this section will experience An
