Mr. Cram says. "Of course, we irrigate

alfalfa with good pasture besides. Of
course we are only 1,740 feet above sea

the growing season." Journal.

L08 ANGELES, Cal., May 8 -James
J. Hill, the railway magnate, who has
been carrying on a nation wide-war
with the Harrim'in interests, is about to
shift the seat of that war to California
by entering the state from the north
west, where he is strongly intrenched,
uccording to the statement today of
Robert E. Strahorn, vice president and
general manager of the O-w. K. & N.
Htrahorn is the man who, in the em
ploy of Harriman built the mysterious
"romance" railroad in the northwest
the North Coast, which after six years
of construction work and completion of
about 300 miles of track, was discover

the Hill stronghold in the Northwest.
Strahorn says that the Hill interests
will not invade California from Denver,
one of the Western terminals of the
system, but that a great double-track
line will be laid from Beattle south
through the vast lumber areas of
Northern California down to San Fran
cisco and eventually on to Los Angeles.
This part of the construction will
come first, says Strahorn, and after
that will be built the connecting
links in the chain of Hill roads
which will give Los Angeles another
through line to the East by connection
with the Burlington at Denver.
Btrahorn refused to say that he has
information to the effect that Hill is
contemplating the construction of this
road from the northwest into California
and on down to the Mexican frontier in
the immediate future, but he did say
that it is a piece of railroad work
which may be looked for in a short
