It Is located several miles perhaps from the station of Currins vllle, which, by the way, Is not even a village, merely a slopping place with a waiting room where excuralonlats may await the arrival of trains. It Is In this Isolated but Ideal parade ground that a company of Japanese soldiers has been solns through regular Infantry evolutions and maneuvers for several weeks. Ourlng the week these little brown soldiers labor lit the Camps which abound along the line of the O. w.

The sharp commands of the officers, the reporta of volleys of rifles attracted their at tention, but until the last few days they gave the matter little or no atten tion. - Last Sunday, however, a larre num. bar of Portland people went out the O. W. P. line to seek a quiet piece to spend the day. Many selected the neigh borhood of Currlneville and In the af ternoon had an opportunity to observe the drills of the Japanese laborer-soldiers. They also thought little of It at nrst, cut arter It nad continued for several hours they watched the actions of the Japanese more carefully.

No one made a thorough examination or went cloae enough to the Japs to scrutinise their aennss aiuaiousiy.

O. Raid, presldest of the Port, land chamber of commerce, and mem bers of the Portland Automobile elub are back of the project, and are receiv Ing warm support front Tillamook citt aens. ' . R. W. Watson ef Tillamook ' believes the idea Is a very vsiusole and practical one, and has ofered to asslat bv sub scription and in other way. He says many others in Tillamook county wlli subscribe and lend all poealble assist ance. Regarding the feasible route he said. In reply to a letter from K. C Whether Or not thev are acting nn their own initiative er under orders were fu Olltnar, secretary of the Portland cham ber of commerce: "The Wilson Rivet route la exactly IT miles from JTorest drove to Tilla mook, and1 In the neighborhood of 44 miles from rorest Grove to Portland, which makes it 7 miles from Portland to Tillamook Instead of IT to miles, ss stated In your letter. It la tS mllee from Portland to Tillamook as the crow flies. "The summit of the Coast rang on the Wilson river s In the neighborhood of J.000 feet above sea level. The flrsi five miles from Galea City to the too of the steep climb is a rise of 1.609 feet, and tbla elevation cannot to my knowl edge be lowered unless another rout and naaa la found, but this would neces sitate another road, and perhaps an In crease of distance. "The southern route from Portland to Tillamook via Sheridan and Dolph, Is exactly lit mile, and the Increased dis tance Is easily made up as against tha poor road on the 1 mile route via the Wilson river. The Wilson river rout com through green timber for 40 miles, where the sun rarely spreads its rays beneath the green foliage, while on the Sheridan route the roada dry out quickly, being an open and cleared coun try, with little green timber along the road." r Mr. Watson added that he would lend assistance to the building of either road that should b selected after thev were viewed by a man competent to Judge and select the beat route. He eeld consider able aaslatanc could he seenred in Til lamook county by subecrlntlons of eauh and work.
