Cchlfft! Oregon is to bb ojpefi
0(1 to the world thrptttfh the ef
forts of E. tl-JInr,rihian, master
of the tiiiiou pa9i'flcjtl0 Oregon,
Short Lino, the 0. R. & N. and
the Southern Pacific. The time
lias cotno when this vast.inter
mountain region ban no lbnger
be overlooked, when $ it ia time
to lap the millions of acres of
productive area, and Work to
this end is about to colnmetice.
- .Announcement homes from
Chicago that ono lino whioh
has been authorized by Mr.
Ilnrrimun is the construction of
a road 100 miles long extending
through the Cascade mountains
from Natron to some place iii
the vicinity of Walker's basin.
No statement is made of other
construction except that of the
Drain-Coos bay line, which has
been officially announced from
the northwest end of the system,
but it is readily Been that the
Natron extension ds the forerun
ner of vast development in Cen
Beginning with early spnng
the Harrimnn system will ex
pend close to fctftloUOOO in the
construction of the Natron ex
tension, under the name of the
Oregon Eastern Railway Com
pany. This sum has been set
aside by tho flarriman direct
ors for the construction of a
line, though, no statement will
be nmdo in Portland as to which
line will be built with the
money. It will bo a costly un
dertaking to . build across the
Cascade mountains for 150 miles
or more, and by considering the
distatioe to be built, the charac
ter of tho work and the amount
of the money sot aside, it will
be easily seen that it is the Or
egon Eastern that ia in the mind
of Mr. Harriman.
If all of tho $4,100,000 set
aside were to be used in con
struoting 150 .milea of track
through the rugged passes of the
Cascades and to the eastern
slope of tho mountains, the av
erage cost' per ihilo would be
approximately WJliO. This
would hot be excessive and
points very plainly to tho faoi
that it ia the Natron line that iB
to bo constructed with tho sum
set nsldb And bhToinlly an-
its extension, into the Klamath
Falls district will settle that
problem. Central Oregon must
be opened und developed to
support tho main line across the
state, and the construction of
tho feeders planned will dc this.
These things are the objects be
ing sought by tho Harriman
While Southern Pacific offi
cials deny it, yet there is abun
dant reason to believe that the
Natron line,,. when constructed,
will be extended to a junction
with the present main line of
the Southern jPacific at or near
Weed, Gal.) q,nd that this new
line will bo in reality from that
moment be the main line be
tween Portland and San Fran
cisco. The heavy Siskiyou
grades must be abolished if it
is possible, and the pass
through the Cascades and the
route around the eastbrn base
of the rugged mountain group
will solve the problem while at
the same time it will lead tho
new road through a far richer
and more productive tariff coun
try thaa feeds the present line,
which is principally rich in scen
ery, tortuous curves and long
Central Oregon will be grid
ironed wilh railroads in five
years, according to the belief of
all railroad men and official an
nouncements made. The Na
tron extension will be the fore
runner 'of other lines to come.
Once across the divide of the
Cascades, the. Harriman Hue
will have the entire central part
of ,the state in its grasp. A
southern extension will join
Klamath Falls and that district
with Portland. An east and
west line will reach across the
state to Ontario and a junction
with the main line of the 0. R.
& N., while from this artery will
branch veins of steel to the
north which will tap all of the
valleys and plateaus south of
the Columbia that are now
waging for the extension of the
lleppner branch, the Columbia
Southern, the Great Southern
and the Condon branch of the
The first step in all this pro
gress will be taken when spring
has opened the mountain passes
and the construction of the Na
tron line is begun. The other
Schemes as soon as the eastern
terminal of this new line has
crossed the .divide of the Cas
cades and has by that crossing
laid open the entire Central Or
egon country to the construc
tion of the other lines. It will

of the Harriman system in Ore

SENATOR JOHN H.
MITCHELL IS DEAD
Passed Away on Last Fri
LOSS OF obll D tnl I'AUSE
Succombs to Diabetic ComaNone of
His Immediate Family Present
--Funeral Took Place on
Senator John H. Mitchell died at 11:30
last Friday morning, at Good Samaritan
hospital in Portland 2fter an illness caused
by loss of blood after, the extraction of
some teeth on the day previous.
At 10 o'clock last Thursday night he
became unconscious and from that time
until the hours of his death he was kept
alive by saline injections.
About midnight he began breathing
heavily as his lungs filled with blood, and
in the morning a dark discoloration oi his
limbs from a. diabetic tr6ubl?i,Tvas visible.
The dying man, seemed to suffer no pain
and no tremor was perceptible save from
frequent vomiting spells. A placid calm
of oblivion was on his countenance, and
so the aged senator passed to a sweet rest
from turmoil and trouble.
At the time of his death Judge W. O.
Chapman, of Tacoma, his son-in-law;
Miss Lottie Price, Mrs. May Barth, nieces
of the dead Senator, and John H. Pricr ,
his nephew, all "of Portland, were in thi
chambftf. Others present were Postmas
ter JohtvMintoj Collector of Revenue D.
M. Dnnne, his law partner Allen R. Joy,
and Senator Brownell. All were visibly
affected by the death of one whom (hey
admired as much ia adversity as they did
in times of sunny fortune.
None of Senator Mitchell's family are
in Portland. Senator. Mitchell has two
sons livimf, John H. Mitchell, Jr., and
Hiram E. Mitchell, a lieutenant in the
regular army, stationed in New York.
Mrs. John H. Mitchell lives in Paris with
her daughter, the Iuchess de Rochefou
cauld. Ajotber daughter lives at Canton,
Ohio. Judge. W. O. Chapman, of Taco
ma, is the 'Senator's son-in-law, his wilt
haying died last May of appendicitis. A
grandson, John Mitchell, resides in The
Last Thursday morning Senator Mitch
ell went to the dental office of Wise Bros,
to have four teeth extracted, which had
been troubling him for some time. .The
first was pulled at 9 o'clock and as the
Senator was feeling weak be was given
time to rest between sch operation. No
anaesthetics were admlnislered-by Dr. W.
A. Wise, who wa attending, as be con
sidered that Senator Mitchell was not in
condition to stand them. The first three
leeth gave little trouble and did not caute
a greater loss oi blood than is usually the
case. When the last one was extracted,
however, a hemorrhage followed which
could not be stopped by the usual reme
dies. Dr. Wise stated that the flow oi
blood was more persistent :Uhan in any
previous case he had ever experienced.
Dr. Wise worked upon the case for an
hour and then seeing that the flow of blood
was unabated and that his patient was be
coming weak, called to his assistance Dr.
Emil Pohl, who has offices on the same
floor of the Faittng building. Together
they attended Senator Mitchell in the
office of Dr. Wise' for nearly hed: hours.
Every styptic at their disposal was ap
plied, but the bleeding continued and it
was decided to remove the Senator to the
Good Samaritan Hospital.
At the hospital the efforts to stop the
loss of blood, Hhrough which his life was
slowly ebbing away, were continued. Be-;
sides Dr. Polll. 'he was attended by Dr.'
James C. O.'Riley, Dr. A. J. Geisey and
Dr. George F. Wilson. Trained nurses
were constantly beside him and every
thing possible was' done to relieve his con
dition. ' AriHrenylin and many other styp
tics we're- applied, but the hemorrhages

and diYtUgH'We night. The fio of blood
