tive in eastern Oregon. After travers
ing Powder valley for a few mile from
Butter City the road will go Into the
hills, tapping lower Powder. valley and
cnntier and s-old mines in the Sparta
district.-The road will afford an out-4
let for the ores of tne ncn copper mines
that are now being developed in the
rich mineral section east of Baker City.
. The -road will then proceed east and
will secure a heavy tonnage from the

possible to place mi umner upon me

The products of Eagle valley will also
be placed upon tne market If this road
la built from Baker City. This valley
is one of the most fertile and produc
tive in Oregon. It la a veritable garden
spot and produces fruit and vegetable
In wonderful abundance.' The surround

could be fattened and shipped directly
to the large markets. .

Beyond Eagle valley Is Pin valley,
which la larger and equally, aa pro

of Pine valley In the Cornucopia moun
tains are some of the richest mine in
Oregon. Thousand of tons of or are
now. awaiting shipment to the smelters
to have tbe gold refined from tbe rock
with which it 1 mixed.- Many of the
rich mine of this section have 'not
been developed because of the lack , of
transportation facilities. With the com

' It i suspected that on reason why
the president la going to make theee
five speeches is to pave, in some fash
ion, the way to this result. The pro
ceeding Is a little high handed,, even
for a Roosevelt, and need a llttl soft
The Democrats In the south are alive
to what i going on, and they Intend to
line up this time behind ft live candi
date. It U expected that when Presi
dent Roosevelt visits the south Lieuten
ant Governor Lewis Stuyvesant Chan
ler of New York state will also be
there. ' Governor Cbanler ha been in
vited to make a southern trip by some
of the most Influential Democrat In
the south. Since the candidacy- of Chatt
ier for the presidency has been an
nounced the Democratic leader la the
south,, who have been at the . capital,
have taken very kindly to it. ' --
Chanler"- father came - from ft moat
distinguished southern family. He mar-
rled the daughter of John Jacob Astor,
and made hla home in New Tork, where
he won fame aa ft lawyer. - - . .'
-. In - thla sense the southerner look
tmon Chanler as - on of - their ' own.
They' feel that thl Is. hot th tlm to
ak th Democratic convention to name
man who Uvea In the south for presi
dent, so, In rallying to the support of
cnanier, ineyi are aoing a next -Deei
mini. - -
.Chanler will not. disappoint hi aouth-
ern audiences. He has a pleasing per
sonality, stand over six feet and 1 ft
fiery orator when he geta ft going.
His visit to th south will stand -out
In vivid contrast- to- the -one mad by
Senator David -Bennett Hill of -New
York on his memorable hunt for south
ern delegate ft dosen year ago. Hill
wa cold and calculating, and never
for ft moment could, he get away from
the business that took him south,'
Chanler . 1 ft good mixer. - He I a
chivalrous aa a Bayard, and while he
will keep hi eve open for anything- that
"Is doing" politically, he can be relied
upon to measure up to th requirement
demanded of ft southern gentleman.
It, Is predicted here that when Gover
nor Chanler gets through ' with th
south he will have th -delegate of
every state that goee to - make up th
"oiid soutn" wiui mm. ,
The candidacy of Chanler has given
the Democrat ft waking up. It ha
brouaht all th flrhtlne- men in the oar-
tv to th front, and they now talk hope
fully of winning. - Of course the fact
that Chanler is ft millionaire may . have
something to do with that. Politicians
are known to be much more eager for
battle when they see th ehadow of
th 'Hong green" even In the distance.
Be thla as it may. Chanler i a, force In
the Democratic party, and will continue
to grow irora now on. - .- - - -
