PIN" ROAD IS TO

Filing Piat for Hill Extension

Already Going Indicates a
Central Idaho Race.
': , (SjxwMl to The Journal.)
Boise. Idaho, Sept. t. New light was
thrown on the railroad construction
program in Idaho by the filing In tbe
United fetatcs Hind office here of 8
plat for the iiropobtd extension of the
Pacific & fdaho Northern from New
Meadows, the present terminus, to t,ar-
Jo, at the outlet of the Payette lakes,
and down Iong valley. That an ex
tension of the Pacific &. Idaho North
ern to north Idaho was planned has
ben generally known, but there ha
horetnfnrp been no intimation that a
road into the Long valley country waa
a part of the plan of extension.
"Fin" Xoad U1 tine.
: The Idaho Northern, which is known
ito be a .Harrlman subsidiary line, is
now extending ita road toward the Long
valley from Emmett, the present termi
nus, and the filing of the plat by the
SP. & I. N. into the same territory Is
tuken to mean that war for the control
of the rich Long valley territory is to
be waged during the coming year. The
P. & 1. N. Is generally thought to have
the bucking of the Hill interests, and
in fact has appeared on railroad maps
aa such, although at present its only
connection is with the Oregon Short
Line, a part of the Harriman system.
The fact that this road is rushing into
the' Idaho Northern's territory; when
the latter road is known to be a.Harrl
man line. Is regarded as evidence that

which R. B. Miller is chairman and
J. N. Teal and O, C. Chapman are ao

It is planned that the effort for the
development of Sherman, Gllllnm and
Morrow counties shall ba maiio big
enough to obtain the result of new
life, greater production and restored
harmony between the people. The lastt
census showed' that all three of the
counties were going backward In popu

rate, and this notwithstanding the fact
that all three front on the Columbia
river and have, generally speaking, very
good railroad transportation facilities.
Investigation has disclosed the fact
that the people Instead of working for
their counties have been fighting each
other; that Instead of growing wheat or
favoring Intense methods of farming,
many of them have made the land pro

the use of fertilizer, Intending as soon
