The railroad muddle has assumed
a more muddled condition than
ever before. The matter of the
confirmation of the recent sale
came wp for hearing at Corvallis
last Tuesday and upon the showing
made by the various and conflict
ine elements the court refused to
confirm the sale.
Just how the mattei now stands
is the mast difficult to say. We
suppose that the court will order a
new sale, which will take place
about next May.
We are free to say that we don't

A representative of the Lkadkk

week visited the A vies coal mine,
which is located in section 13, nbout
a mile and a half west of Toledo.
We found Captain Ayles a very

utk their prospects. They nre run
ning a tunnel about 5x6 feet nnd
have gone into the mountain side n
distance of 145 feet. They expect
to reach the vein within the next
thirty feet The Captain has good
experienced men, and is building
a good tunnel, timbering and log
ging it in a good substantial man
ner. The mine is locnted one-half
mile from tidewater, nnd if sufficient
coal is found will bo very easy of
access. We hope thnt the company
may realize their f .'iidest hopes, ns

We often hear our business men
ani our farmers say, just wait until
the railroad g' cs ahead, then times
will be good. This is no doubt
true, but why wait until the road
is built before we make n move.
Why not go ahead and improve our
farms and dcvelope our resources
as best we can, and be in good
shape to enjoy prscrity and good
limes The trouble in all new
countries is there ore a certain class
of people who want to sell out and go
farther west, as soon as civilization
advances. This is all right, but if
a farm is let to grow up to brush
and weeds it does not present a
very good appearance to the
stranger looking for a location.

near Toledo that took up a home

good barns and out buildings and a
neat cottage to live in, and is lay
