It is not quite four years since Mr.
Markham Inaugurated the policy of en

Dr. Wlthycombe. As the result of qulot

will go on. Recently there was a number
of pure-bred, cattle Introduced Into Ore

Industrial Agent Juson, which will tend
to still further aid tne plan.
The distribution of pure-bred cattle was
not confined to the Southern Pacific, but
was also conducted at various points

Mr. Miller served as Senator from New

year later for the Governorship, of that

dent Harrison carried' that state that year
by a sweeping majprtty. Senator Miller
was formerly engaged In the manufacture
of paper mill machtnery and pulp paper.
He filled orders for- the equipment of the
first pulp mills on- the Pacific Coast. Th
Senator was one of the most important
characters in the advocacy of the Nlcr-

the company when it was first organised.
He toured this coast in 1890, when he was
president Of the company, speaking at
every point of Interest In favor of the
project . , . '
The ex-Senator is as enthusiastic over a
canal route as.he .eyer was, and while
disappointed that his .former route' has
not been chosen, he expresses the hope
that there will be no. delay in carrying
out the work on the route decided upon

Cabinet of President Lincoln. Frederick
W. Seward was the assistant Secretary of
State -during the time, and bears the. dis
