JOHN F. HALL,
Tho raihoad from Eugene to tho
big timber In the western end of tho
county and eventually to the mouth
of the Sluslaw river is now assured,
according to the Daily Guard. The
committee of business men who
havo been working earnestly and ar
duously for the past several weeks
have at last been successful In secur
ing tho required ?C0,000 in stock
subscriptions to tho enterprise and
everything is now ready for tho In
corporation of a company and tho
building of the first ten miles or
more of road before the winter rains
The committee tills afternoon an
nounced that the amo,unt had been
raised and tho work of organizing
will at once bo attended to and the
surveys for tho line will bo satrted
as soon as possible. Already written
contracts for tho right-of-way for the
first six miles out of Eugene havo
been secured, this matter having
been attended to by the committee
soon after they began work on the
Tlie route chosen for tho road, as
now planned, will lead duo west
from Eugene for a distance of ten
miles, then turn northerly in tho
direction of Franklin, thence west
again to Goldson and past the An
derson & Warner sawmill, past Tri
angle lako and down tho Lake creek
valley. This routo was selected by
tho committee and Stephen Carver
as tho most feasible, and, while tho
surveyors may not follow the exact
routo selected, this will bo tho gen
eral direction in which tho lino will
be built. This routo affords an easy
which tho lino will traverse, and
grade in the mountainous section
somo of tho finest timber land in tho
world will bo tapped in the Lako
Creek valley and vicinity.
Tho plans of Mr. Carver are to
build thirty miles of tho road with

zens together with whnt Mr. Carver
and his associates havo put up. This
will extend the lino into tho big
timber district and when that much
Is completed It will be no trouble to

of subscribers to the fund toda. bat
owing to the fact that F. L. Cham
