the subscription has been secured and it
has been definitely assured that tho
undertaking will be a success. This
much has been decided upon, that
Crook county will have rail transporta
tion, connecting it with Portland, and
touching at Bend, Frineville and Mad
ras. When the preliminaries have
reached tie proper stage, the moat feas
iblo and practicable route will be
chosen. It may be said that tho com
mittee at present Jeans toward the
extension of the flhaniko line, for the
reason that that line is nearest to the
territory to be reached and can be built
njore cheaply and more quickly than
any other ljne into this territory. And,
after all . these years of waiting for a
railroad, tjme is of the very essence of
importance to fhis long-neglected terri
tory. The pjd Columbia Southern Rail
way extension survey, made five years
ago, is said to havo been carefully made
and to be a good line, and if the Shan
iko line is extended, that survey will be
followed.. The right-of-way contracts

STRIKE OIL fN THE
The Bevis-May Oil Company has very
bright indications of striking oil in
paying quantities in their well now be
ing drilled on Ramsey creek a few miles
above town, says the Dufur Dispatch.
While drilling Tuesday morning oil
was found to exist in small quantities
and as tlit work advanced the oil be
came more noticeable. When reachin;
the depth of 310 feet a light flow of gas
was found to escape from the hole and
bubbling noises were heard at the bottom.
This information was given to the Dis
patch by Mr. Porter who has charge of
the drilling operations and is about as
conditions exist at the present time.
Mr. Porter says the grade of oil is the
same as the Pittsburg or Pennsylvania
oil and that the indications for a large
flow are the best he has ever seen.
Drilling operations have been sus
pended for a time on account of the
drillers not being prepared to take care
of the oil, and until the company can
get a cap and some small pipe on the
ground the work will be at a standstill.
HAS WOMAN OPTICIAN
Portland has a full-fledged woman op
ticianthe only one in this part of the
country. It was announced today that
in the examinations just given by the
State Board of Optometry examiners
Mrs. Florence T. Cooper of 354 Clay
street has passed successfully and will
bo given a certificate to practice in this
Mrs. Cooper is the only woman who
has ever passed the Oregon examina
tions and she says that she will practice
in Portland. She studied her profes
sion in this city.
There were seven other candidates,
only one of whom, Dr. Golden of Maine,
passed tho examinations of tho board.
Mrs. Cooper was formerly Florence
Parrish, and is the daughter of Mrs.
Rolando Parrish of Haycreek.
Tho saloons of Prinovillo closed their
doors promptly at 12 o'clock Tuesday
night and this city is now as dry as the
strongest prohibitionist could wisli for.
There was little intoxication and no dis
orderly conduct or arrests. Much wine,
beer and liquors was purchased on tho
lust day, all to be cached away and ul
timately used for medicinal purposes.
An amusing feature of the day was the
receipt by ovory family and man in
town of tho catalogue of a Portland
liquor house, which evidently is the first
to mako a bid for tho Crook county
trade Tho ministers even were not
spared, and they sinilo in manifest ap
preciation of the joke. Review.

OF NATION'S BIRTHDAY
72 Killed, 2736 Injured-FIre Losses
Half A Million
Death stalked in the wake of the cele
bration of the Nation's birthday last
Saturday, the list of deaths due entirely
to accidents, attending the celebration
being the largest in 10 years. Dp until
Tuesday morning 72 deaths had been
reported, with a list of casualties total
ing 2730. The death list is the largest
since 1899, but tho list of injuries at
tending the celebration is only two
thirds the average number for the last
five years. This is regarded as an indi
cation 'that the agitation in favor of a
"safe and sane" Fourth is having its
effect. Many of the larger cities this
year prohibited entirely the discharge
of fireworks, San Francisco being among
the safe and sane cities. The loss by
fire occasioned by fireworks in tho
United States was more than a half
million dollars this year, which is abovo
the average for the past 10 years. Tho
Nation's celebration was a i
