LYTLE-HARRIMAN LINE BUYING
RIGHTS-OF-WAY ON LEWIS A
CLARK TILLAMOOK MATTERS
TO BE AIRED IN COURT.
News reached this city yesterday
noon from authentic sources, in fact
from parties just in from the territory,
that the Harrlman Interests are over
, whetmlngly busy in the Lewis ft Clark
country buying up rights-of-way for
that section of the Lytle line that Is
to be deflected hither from the Hills-
boro-Tillamook road, and are paying
almost fancy prices In tbelr quest for
an early acquirement of the property;
they are making no bones about the
work nor Its object, according to the
informant of the Astjrlan, and expect
to cover the line to Young's Bay in a
few more days.
Apropos, of the Lytle road, the dif
ferences between that road and the
Astoria ft Columbia River railway, are
now squarely in court, with Judge Geo.
H. Burnett, presiding at Salem, and
the case will take some time to adjust
as there is a great deal of testimony to
be produced by both parties to the ac
tion, and there is a bare possibility of
the issues being amicably reached and
Mr. Lytle was on the stand ,and of
fered to compromise to a certain ex
tent and give the Astoria ft Columbia
choice of 25 feet on the coast side or
on the Inland side, In which case, both
companies can lay their rails on the
same right of way.
Auditor Deyoe also favored this
plan, but was not willing that the en
tire right of way at this point be given
ever to the defendants, as it would shut
them out entirely, and the Lytle com
pany has already built Its line from
Buxton to Hillsboro, and is now con
structing Its road to Tillamook Bay,
and has surveyed the entire right of
way to Astoria through Seaside, Ne
halem, Garvote, Hobsonvllle and Bay

An Important decision In this con
nection Is the one that no person who
is either a principal of alternate on
any team entered In the competition
JUST in the due course of business, the Morning Astorian
has in contemplation with the Eiler Piano House of
Portland a proposition which it will launch in a few days
whereby the music loving people of this city and county may
upon exceedingly flattering terms become possessed of a Gcn
uine Columbia Talking Machine, accompanied by six notable,
records (your own selection), all of the actual value of $25.00,
further particulars of which will appear in a day or two
in these columns. v
The Eiler Piano House
will be represented in this city by Mr. Clyde C. Hurley, who
will have charge of the Talking Machine Store. Through
special arrangements with Hildebrand & Gor, he has been
able to obtain one of the front windows of their store and
on Saturday, April 20th, he will have the Machines on
display at that place. All are invited to call and investi
gate this Wonderful Offer.

The matches of the National Rifle
Association will be snot the week pre
ceding the National Matches, and up
on the Camp Perry range's. The Ohio
Rifle Association matches will bo shot
at the same time and place.
Immediately following the National
Matches, the Matches of the New
Jersey Rifle Assocletlon will be shot
at Sea Girt, New Jersey. Although
the matches of the National Rifle As
sociation anJ the National Matches
will be shot In Ohio, the Boa Girt
shoot Is an attractive affair as It will
be the seventeenth annual competi
tion. During these seventeen years a
number of matches have been estab
lished, tncludelrig those for regiment
and company teams and Individuals.
Prizes will consist of time honored
trophies and cash. New matches are
nnnounced for a prlzo to bo given by
Senator Urlggs for regimental teams,
to be confined to rapid fire and skir
mish runs; a prlzo to be given by
Colonel Anthony R. Kuser, and a slowl
fire match for regimental teams, to
trophy to bo given by Ex-Attorney
General, John W. Griggs, it Is ex
pected that "many of .the rlfliimen In
attendance on the National matches
In Ohio, will go to Sea Girt for these
matches. General Bird W. Sericor,
formerly President of the National
Rifle Association, will have charge of
Mr. Brutus J. Clay, American Mln-
Ister lo Switzerland, forwarded,
through the Department ot Slftio. a
note received from the Committee of
the Tor edoral, Inviting the American
marksmen to be represent! by a del
egation at the International Rifle and
Pistol matches to be held at Zurich, In
July, l07.' It wilt be Impossible for
representatives of the American army
to be present on the occasion, but It
Is likely Mome individual riflemen will
attend, and there Is a possibility a
team will be sent by private Individ
uals. Iowa proposes to sell lis present
National Guard camp ground, con
sisting of 160 acres north of the army
post at Des Motnes. This ground can
be sold for about $126 per acre or
more, and north of the city a doslra-j
ble rlllo range and camp can be so-
cured at $8 per acre, It Is proposed .
to add to the funds thus secured ft;
part of thu State's share ot the gov-1
eminent appropriation for rlilu prac
tice, which will enable the State to
secure a much larger cntnp ground,
and to tit up an excellent range.
General Grant, commanding the De
parlment of tho East, has directed
that the annual rifle practice of the
shall take place on the range of the
Naval Academy, at Annapolis, Mary
and, which has been placed at h
disposal of the Department for this
purpose by the Navy Department.
There is a great deal of Interest In

presented a gold medal to the Tope
ka, Kansas, rifle club, which will be
awarded to the best shot In the club.
