Jerry Simpson of New Mexico, who was
a delegate at thenatlonal livestock convention,-has
written a letter to his old
- sfrlend A. J. Hobbs,-who is a special
agent at the land office in this city.
In looking over the letter It seems
hardly possible that the writer of the
little thin lines Is the, same roan wno
represented Kansas three terms In - the
halls of congress and went to national
balls without, stockings. But such Is
, the, case. . His letterhead Is very simple
and there ', is a picture of . a spouting
geyser In, the left hand corner of the
head. The lettering reads:
"Jerry Simpson. .-, Real estate. Bos
well. New Mexico."- He has retired from
' political strife and gone Into the more
quiet business of raising cattle under
the, clear Texas sky. -. ; .;--i-K ' '
, His letter relates to some 'business
and refers to Roswell and his rp to
Oregon to the livestock convention and
- the people he met In Portland. ' Ha said
that "he had seen lots of country but
none he liked so well as this," meaning
Itoswell. He-eta ted-that-Captain 1
the mayor of Roswell, had died. In
' connection with this he said: "Captain
Lee, : our mayor, Is dead. When alive
a great many went out of their way to
hit: him, but every one-' turned out to
his funeral, But that is the way of the
white man... He is a funny cuss." Jerry
Simpson closes his letter, with .these
words: "I count the days that I spent
in Portland among the happiest of my
life. ' Remember me to all my friends
I . met .there and say to them . that . I
, hope I may' live to 'see them all once

IN THE INTEREST
OF GOOD ROADS BILL
(Journal Special Service.)
' " Salem, Or., Feb. 24. County- Judge
J. H. Scott returned yesterday noon from
arc extended trip east, having been in
Washington In the interest of the good
roads bills now before congress. He
was absent six weeks, and during that
time visited "different states where road
building has i been made a study, and
where II ' Is ' being- done- scientifically
with the best results. He has learned
. a. gpeaV'fleal' about the work of road
.bullding. which he will now make use
of in the work of reconstruction of
- Marion county's rad system. County
.Judge . Scott is the- originator of the
good roqds work in -Marlon county, and,
Indeed, In the state, for he la the first
county officer who first seriously began
the work of road construction in. Ore
gon., He was the first president of the
Btate Oood Roads' association, a dele
gate to the natlonkl good roads conven
tion held In St. Louis last winter, and
was, by the president of the latter, ap
pointed the Oregon member of the com
mittee from the National Good Roads
association to appear before the roads
committee of- congress and. work for
the passage of the good roads bills be
fore that body. It was oa this mission
tthat Judge Scott went east, and whilo
there 'he looked into road-making with
S View to getting the best Information
obtainable.
On his way east he stopped off in Los
Angeles, On!., and made an examination
of , the roads in that section, and he is
favorably impressed with oil as ma
terial for good roads, the manner of
using It as done down there proving it
e -most valuable article. His next stop
" was in Charlotte, N. C, 'where-he ex
amined the road work done by the use
of convict labor. Macadam roads built
"there pleased him "very much, and he
thinks they are just about right Here
he drove over a roadway, that had been
in use ten years, and it was hard and
smooth, showing but little wear and
less repairs. He' saw the manner- of
building the roads with convict labor,
and was well paid for the trouble he
took in examining the work, by the in
formation gained... . ;
While before the committees in Wash
ington, the representatives of the Oood
Roads Association, met' with the most
'courteous treatment, and the assurance
that some measure looking toward na
tional aid would be passed at this ses
sion ef congress. The delegation did
not ask for the passage of .any, special
measure now . before congress, but aid
In some form was asked, and the as
surances given by the - congressional
committees encouraged the delegation
very much, and they look forward hope
fully for favorable action." The Oregon
delegation In congress. Judge Scott says,
promised him every assistance possible
for the good roads legislation, as soon
as the Lewis and Clark exposition bill
was safely passed.
Judge Scott finds a large amount of
county and probate business awaiting
his action, and he says will for some
little time be busy in disposing of tho
'acumulated business. As soon as pos
sible be will set to work to give Marlon
county the benefit of his information on
road building, as gathered during his
'visit east and great hopes are enter
tained by the people of this county as
to- the beneficial results that will accrue

A SUFFRAGE BILL
CREATES A BIG STIR
(Journal Special Serrlre.)
Albany, N. Y., .Feb. 24. There was a
great swish of silken skirts about the
senate committee rooms today and even
the most casual observer could not fall
to note that something of unusual inter
est. y the fair sex was on the tapis.
The presence of the fair visitors, who
came from New York, Syracuse,. Buffalo.
Rochester, TJtlca, and other cities
throughout the state, was due to the
hearing before the senate Judiciary. com
mittee on the bill Introduced by Senator
Stevens on behalf of the would-be wo
man voters.
The Stevens bill seeks to amend the
state constitution by adding a provision
permitting the legislature to confer
"upon female cltliens of any city of
of , the state the right to vote in the
eloctlon districts of .which they shall at
the time be residents, fo, and make
them eligible to the office of school com
mlsloner and school trustee, and every
other office heretofore and hereafter
ereated which shall confer upon the offi
cer elected power to manage and control
any public school or schools."
The women who attended the hear
ing were deeply interested In the bill,
but strange to say, a large element
among them were on hand to express
their vigorous opposition to the measure.
Others, however, including eminent rep
resentatives of the state woman's suff
rage association, were on hand to speak
in favor of the proposed law. In sup
port of the measure they argued that
Women arc more interested In the train
ing of children than are men, and that it
was necessary, therefore, that women
not only be allowed to vote for the mem
bers of school boards, but to hold office
themselves on such boards.
The opposition, in equally strong
terms, declare that there Is no demand
for such a law from women of the state;
that the bill Is only one of the maov
wedges the suffragists are using lnfry
Ing to undermine and tear down the op
position to full woman suffrage; that
where women now have the right to
vote fof school officers they notably fall
to do bo; that this demand was made at
the time of the constitutional conven
tion of 1894, and failed, and thst the
present bill is too broadly framed not
to become a menace.

JOHN DAY COUNTRY
. GROWING FAMOUS
. (Journal Special SerTlce.) '
Sumpter, Or., Feb. 24. John Davles'
came in the last of the week from htt
property on Canyon creek, In the John
Day. country. ... The, property adjoins the
famous Great Northern pr6perty, from
which. It, is stated, a small fortune In
specimen gold has been taken. Messrs.
Davles and Stickney, both of this city,
are working the property under bond.
The work up to the present time has
been on a small scale, says Mr. Da
vles, which was deemed best on account
of the immense porphyry dike 'or lode
which crosses the property. The sur
face work performed during the fall and
early winter was mostly shallow shafts
and open cuts which were sunk at fre
quent Intervals and driven across the
strike of - the dike. In this way the
work done has proven that there Is a
high-grade ore on deposlt.'the rich stuff
coming in as seams of quarts striking
at right angles to the main dike or ir
regularly through it. .
Mr. Davles Wrought over some speci
men rock taken from these seams, which
show great flakes of free gold. He also
has specimens of the porphyry In which
there is free gold visible to the naked
eye, this being of more thorough min
eralization and Indicating that the por
phyry will have a good general average
value, as a milling proposition.
Mr. Davles says that while there is
considerable, rich specimen ore, the
property ' is a Jew-grade one. The nu
merous pits sunk and cuts made on this
dike have proven that It is at least 800
feet in length and carries good average
values. ,The dike is very wide, but is
not fully defined in the development up
to date.
A Xemarkable Pocket.
In the Great Northern property which
adjoins was found the most remarkable
pocket ever disclosed in the district it
having been located by trained pocket
hunters. Some of the gold that was
taken out was of the very rare sponge
type, seemingly having been formed in
a soft matrix, which was later leached
away, leaving the sponge of yellow
metal. Again the gold appeared as wire
stringers in artistically arranged form, '
and a specimen of this nature was found
on the property held under bond by
Messrs. Davles and Stickney, It is pos
sible to find specimens with visible gold
on the surface of the ground crossed by
the dike, but the new owners have not
yet been able to determine whence they
came, nor Is it probable lhat they will
be able to do so until more development
work has been done.
Progress Made at the Tlctor.
The work of Installing the compressor
plant and hoist at the Victor mine, in
the Cracker-Creek" tJtstrlctroperatecn&y'
Adrian O. Hanauer of Spokane, is Hear
ing completion. The foundations for
the engine and compressor have been
placed, and as soon as the cement dries
the machinery will be put in.
The 80-horsepower -gasoline engine'
which will operate the compressor is a
very heavy piece of machinery and will
require a good base, as the explosions
would soon rack an ordinary foundation.
The slx-drlll compressor has arrived
and has been transferred to the prop
erty, where it Is awaiting installation.
It is not known at this time just when
the work will be completed, but the
plant will be In operation soon.
As soon as the machinery is ready to
operate, a full crew of three shifts, all
using machine drills, will be put on in
the face of the crosscut and the drive to
the main vein of the property will be
made in record time. Arrangements
have been made for the extensive de
velopment contemplated by the manage
ment and no time will be lost in open
ing up the property when the plant la
In shape. The cold weather retards the
completion of the foundation somewhat
but the progress being made insures
early results. ,
Good Beporfs Ttom the Ooldbug.
Walter Crone, superintendent of the
Goldbug, In the Red Boy district oper
ated by Messrs. Van Vleet and Wright
of this city, came in from the property
the last of the week to attend the
Knights' convention. He says that the
work on the 60O-f6ot crosscut tunnel
which will tap the main lead of the
property at a depth of 300 feet Is pro
gressing as usual. The snow, he says,
at the mine Is from six to seven feet
deep, but the progress of development
work has not been interfered with In
any manner. . .
