It is )lannod to connect Port
land and tho .Willamuttw valley
witli Ontaiio, tho lino to pene
trate tho very heart of the state
of Oregon. Thoso who are in
terested iu Hie project hope lo
haVe lino completed within two
years.
The- building of tho road is
but part of the woik which will
bo undertaken by the Co Oper
ative Christian Federation,
which oxpeofs to invoBt more
than SstfO.GOO.OOQ in Oregon with
in tho next few years. Cities
will be founded both in the
Willamette valley and in East
urn Oregon, but tho building of
the road is to come first of all.
The perfect ci(y,"of which much
has been published, will then
be established iu the Willam
ette valley, following which will
bo founded smaller tov?ns in
Eastern Oregon.
The new road will inn from
Poitlund 10 tho site of the new
city', the location of which has
not yet been definitely decided
upon. From there it will cross
the Cascades at one of the many
available passes near the head
waters of the Santiam. It will
pass near Prinevillo to the liar
noy valley, which it will tra
verse from one end to the other,
following tho Malheur river, to
Ontario. The line has been sur
veyed by capable engineers,
and the projeot is said to be
practicable and feasible.
The road 'will open vast tracts
of timber lands, and more than
000,000 acres of irrigated and
irrigable land will be tributary
to the line. Most of this land
will be irrigated by existing re
clamation projects. It is also
proposed to extend feeders into
Tdaho, Nevada and California.
It is the plan to eventually have
settlements of tho federation all
along the 'trunk and mainline,
and the metropolis of all the
cities will bo' in the Willamette
valley. It will have a popula
tion within five yours of D0.000
persons, says 'members of the
federation.
llev. IL S. Wallace, tho foun
der of tho Christian Co-Opera
tive Federation, says that the
railroad will not cost less than
1G,000,000, and that it will be
completed within two years at
tho most. Ho says Eastern par
ties are ready to take the bonds
that will bo issued by the fed
oration for tho construction of
tho road, and that ho will visit
Now York tho first part of next
month to close yp thdeal.

petinltted to Imvc a County Road lending
petitions for a road hare been universally

Why the county road from I'rineville

down,
In fact why all of the petitions for roads
In this section of the county have been
unreasonably delayed or turned down
outright.
Why the petition for the incorporation
of Madras has been refused and the town
prohibited a town government.
Why the Laidlaw precinct was formed
to suit your Hon, Dody' and not as peti

who are residents near Laidlaw to go
to other precincts to vote, and also to reg
ister. Your Hon. hodv should know, that
Western Crook county is rapidly being
developed ftnd that the people need roads,
bridges and incorporated towns.
Our citizens only wish to understand

I3end Bulletin: "Uncle" Frank
Nichols of Laidlaw is a long
time personal friend of the vice
president of the Corvallis &
Iinstern. Recently he wrote a
letter to his railroad friend ask
ing for information as to the
company's intention concerning
railroad extension across Ore
ton. Mr. Nichols received a
Inner in reply in which hh
friend said: "1 hope to be able
to make a visit to you before
very long on a railroad." In
answer to inquiries the letter
also said that the Corvallis &
Eastern had not been purchased
by JInrriman and that the road
was not for sale. He also
stated that all financial arrange
ments necessary for the exten
sion of the road were completed.
BAD RUNAWAY ACCIDENT
Bob Carland, who is well
known here, has been confined
iu a hospital at Pendleton since
November 8, 1005, as the result
of serious injuries received in a
runaway accident. A 0-horse
team drawing two heavily load
ed wagons got away from Bob
while going down a steep hill
near Pendleton and he was
thrown under tho wagons, both
of them running over his body.
One leg was broken, the other
was dislocated, three ribs were
broken and his collar bone was
also fractured. The broken leg
has about mended, but it is
feared that the injury to the
other leg will leave him perma
nently lame.

COAL DISCOVERED IN CROOK
Found on Hoy Creck-9d0 Acras arc
Applied For.
A good quality of lignite coal
has been discovered in this
county, the discovery having
been male by Wade Huston
over on Trout creek, and al
ready three companies have
applied for an aggregate of 000
acres under the law permitting
coal lands to bo purchased. Thia
law provides that coal lands sit
uated more than 15 miles from
any railroad may be bought at
$10 an acre, no individual being
permitted to buy more than 160
acres and no company more
1 ha 320 acres; coal lands with
in 15 miles may be bought in
like quantities at $20 an aire.
Tho coal land discovered in
this county are more than 15
miles from the nearest railroad,
and will therefore comtt within
the provisions of allowing them
to be purchased for $10 an acre.
The discovery by Huston was
due to the burrowing of a bad
ger which first exposed the coal
to view. Noticing the small
particles of what appeared to be
coal, Huston made further in
vestigation and lound a number
of outcropj-iings, up4on which he
sunk a shaft to a depth of about
10 feet. From this shaft he
took a number of samples and
carried them to the county seat
where they were thoroughly
tested, tho tests being satisfac
tory. Business men in Prine
ville have become interested
with Huston, and the 060 acres
which has been applied for by
them will be thoroughly pros
pected. !' :
Applicants for the purchase
of coal lands have a year in
which tp make paj'meut, so that
the discovers have ample time
in which to determine whether
the expenditure is justified by
the quality and quantity of the
coal found. Henry and "Wade
Huston, Hiram Ray and Martin
Barney of Ashwood, and Wal
ter O'Neil and A. Thomson of
PrineVille are the applicants for
the 060 acres.
Thron Thronson, a mining
man of some prominence who
was connected with the May
flower mine, on Ochoco, was
present when samples of the
coal were tested, and he unhesi
tatingly states that he believes
the lind made by Huston will
be of great commercial value
and importance In quality, he
says, it ranges from rtn earthly
lignite through bituminous to
semi- or free-burning authracite.
