K 'li 'COMING.
It is pracUoaliy assured that
tihe Columbia Southern railroad
will extend from Shaniko to this
!$ace during the coming twelve
months. While the .full report
of the trip of investigation made
ki to this section of tke state by
representatives of the Harrisoan
kitereets has probably not yet
peached headquarters, the na
ture of the report, is known, and
the fact that Central Oregonis iu
dire need of better transporta
tion facilities and is abundantly
able to support a railroad, has
unquestionably been estab
lished. The next step will be
the order foi construction to
begin, and then, the beginning
of an era of wonderful growti,
and. development throughout
The moat recent information
regarding the extension of thef
Columbia Southern is to the
effect that only fifty miles of
road will be built during the
coming year. This wonld tap
all of the great wheat belt sur
rounding this place, and would
indicate that Madras is the ob
jective point of the immediate
plans of extension. Large areas
;ire already under cultivation
throughout the entire stretch of
territory within a radiu3 of 15
miles of this place and the ur
gent need of better transporta
tion facilties for the marketing
of the product of this territory
was manifest to the railroad
representatives who made a
rarefnl and intelligent study of
the conditions which prevail
here. This is the territory upon
which the burden of lackof trans
portation rests most heavily at
this time, and to view it from
their purely business stand
point, this is the territory from
which the railroad will draw
its primany support. The'ail
load to this point affords easy
acceas to the irrigated districts
farther south, and in the very
near future the development
there will demand the further
extension of the road. It may
be that the railroad will hasten
the development of the country
sourh of here by pushing, the
fXtension through to Bend, bur
the conclusions above are indi
cated by the reports of the com
mittee sent to investigate.
A petition asking for the
establishment of a stage route
between Heisler and this place
is being circulated for signa
turesiSthis weeU. ,yhen a good
proportion of the names of
patrons of this office has been
secured, the petitiou will be for
warded to the postal depart
ment at Washington, and it is
hoped that some immediate ac
tion will be -taken in the matter,
pne stumbling block iu the way
of the creation of this route has
been the fact that a portion of
the road over which the mail
ronte would have to pass was
Hot an established county road,
but passed through and over
private property, but this ob
jection will soon be removed as
it is quite likely a county road
all the way through to rteisler
will be established at thf pres-'
ent session of the county cour;.
The new mail route, if it is cre
ated, will be a great improve
ment over, the present cirouitousj
roue ovt?r which our mails have
to pass, and will Avoid a delay
of ni least 4 hours in the de
livery cJtour outgoing mails.

two prominent mining men from
Sampler were in town on Wed

:l reported that there is a
deal o for the purchase of the
property by a syndicate of
Sumpter capitalists, of which
the two gentleman are repre
sentatives. An Indian mortar 8 inches
high, and a peatal to match it,
were unearthed near Bend, re-
centlj', from amongst the roots
of a 250 years oldt Juniper

A Portland fur dealer says
that despite &e fact that the

that not less than 15.00Oof these
animals aire killed annually in
Oregon, but that the number
living is on the increase. Ex.
