Conditions during the present
year strongly emphasize the
jenornious handicap uudei
which the development of this
.section is proceeding. With
wheat selling around ninety
ent3 in the Portland market,
fhe wheatgrowers of this sec
lion are not able to net them
selyes more than fifty cents per
bushel for their grain, owing to
.the lack of rail transportation
facilities. With a bumper crop

NEW HOMESTEAD RULING
Officials of the local laud
office at The Dalles have been
notified by the General Land
Office of a new ruling by tha
department, affecting the com
mutation clause of the home
stead law. We have not a copy
of the circular at hand, but the

including six months of con

the department in which to es

and art actual residence of only

Years like this bring home to
us the tremendously adverse
conditions under which the
development of this section
proceeds, but the' have an
other effect, too, which bright
ens the prospect for the future.
Big crops demonstrate the
country's worth, and the im

the possibilities of Central Ore

jailroad investment. The Har

another attempt would be made
at an earl' date to operate the
road train successfully between
this place and Shaniko. So far
as can be learned from the pro

ever, there is nothing to justify
the hope that another trial will
be made to operate it this sea

of the engine over the roads,
without a great deal of work
being done on jhem, was dem
onstrated to be impracticable
by the trial trip made out from
