Mr, J. P. Hillstrom of Hood river was
in tho city today attending to some land

That Eastern Oregon is in. the mind of
railway projection is pretty certain this
year. Occasionally a paragraph is seen
which indicates the way the wind is
blowing. The Klamath Express, speak
ing of the possible intentions of the
Southern Pacific and the Great North
ern, in nn interview' with Geo. J. Farns
worth, says: "I consider that Mr.
Crocker's statements relative to the
Southern Pacific's future movements are
encouraging in tho extreme. He in
formed me that owing to the large
amount of railroad building already on
hand his company would not commence
operations toward this point until next
year and that they would tWen. push
their work ahead. At ourlast meeting
he showed me the line of survey from
which they will probably deviate but
little. The Southern Pacific is keeping
a watch on the movements of competing
lines and it is quite likely that if the
Great Northern heads for this country
from Idaho this summer the Southern
Pacific may change their plans and com
mence operations at once." We believe
that Mr. Hill intends to continue his
Great Northern road from Butte to San
Francisco via Boise city. O." Tj. Miller,
of Boise, is promoter of a line of railroad
to connect Butte with Boise.' . It is a fine
route, penetrating a country of extreme
richness. It has already been earveyed
and construction engineers will be,
within one week, sent into the field.
Miller is a poor man, and a short time
ago despaired of success. He went east
and visited Chicago and St. Paul, and
returned to Boise with abundant finan
cial backing, proclaiming that the road
would certainly be built. -

FIEE IN FOSIL. .
Condon Globe. Monday afternoon
about 2 o'clock the large livery stable
belonging to Chas. McKenzie at. Fossil
caught fire, presumably, from, a cigar
stump, and within a few seconds the en
ormoua structure was a seething mass of
roaring flames. Everthing was as dry
as powder, and it was only a second un
til the flames spread to Elmer Bernard's
saloon under tho same roof, thence to
the old Coates blacksmith shop, thence
to the Hosford building occupied by
Mrs. F. M. Jndd. By . almost super
human efforts tho large merchandise
store of W. W. Steiwer &.Co., justorth
across the street, was saved by spread
ing wet blankets all over the roof, it
being protected also by a row of large
poplar trees. P. Potterton's large fur
niture establishment was saved also by
wet blankels. Had Steiwer & Co's. store
caught fire, there is no doubt the entire
town would have fallen a victim to the
fiend. The scorched boards of that and
Pottrton's building are evidenc e of the
narrowness of their escape. Several
dwelling houses had the paint roasted
out of them also those of J. H. Potnam
and Mr. Carpenter, and were saved only
by he 'most determined efforts. The
livery stable was the most valuable
building destroyed, and we are informed
that the building was not insured. One
horse, belonging to Charley Branson,
who had the stable rented, perished in
flames. He also lost a lot of hay, har
ness, etc., and the kind hearted citizens
at once raised about $100 for him. We
have not learned if any of the other
buildings were insured or not. . The loss
is about $5,000. ;The burnt district liee
in the east edge of the town, and as the
wind was blowing furiously from the
the west at the time, had the fire origi
nated anywhere in tho .west end of the.
town, nothing but ashes -would now be
left to mark the beautiful townsite of
Fossil. ' -
The 'Wonder of Oregon-.
AdolphSutroandhis son Charles, have
been spending considerable time in
southern and TSastern Oregon this year.
Mr. 8utro has' traveled the "world over
and is familiar with the wonderland of
the old world, bnt Crater lake, in his es
timation, eclipses anything he has ever
seen. In speaking of the ultramarine ef
fect of the water, which- is 2,000 feet in
depth, he said: VThe only comparison
I can make relative to the color, Is that
of the waters of the . Bine Grotto at
Capri, a cave in an island off the coast
of Naples. The entrance to the cave is
on a level with the ocean, and the boat
men who are skilled "take the explorer
into the cave in the trough of the waves,
a seemingly hazardous undertaking to
the visitor. The water in this cave re
sembles that of Crater lako in color only
bat in magnitude -and scenic granduer
the Blue Grotto does not compare."

THE FORFEITED LANDS.
The Dalles, July 26. Following is a
copy of. the act, recently become a ' law,
in reference to purchase of forfeited.rail
road lands under section ' three, aet of
September 29th, 1890
Be it enacted by the senate and honse
of representatives of the United States
of America in congress assembled :
." That section three, of an act entitled
an act to forfeit certain lands heretofore
granted for the purpose of aiding in the.
construction of railroads.- and '. for nther -
, ... ' r r :
puiuccc, UXjj lilt; Bcliuo ,13 .UUICUUUU
so as to extend the time within .which
persons actually.-, residing.-upon .lands
forfeited by said act shall be permitted
to purchase the same in the quantities
and upon the terms provided in said
section at any time within three years
from the passage of said act.
Capt. John W. Lewis, register of The
-Dalles United States land office more
fully explains the qnestion as follows:
"By act of congress, approved September
29, 1890, claimants, under.the third sec
tion, were allowed two years from that
date in which to pay for. the land to
which they were legally entitled. . By a
subsequent act (Feb. 189I).this time was
extended to the 3d day of February,
1S93, and by another and recent" act the
time 'was further; extended,- to, actual
residents only, to three years from Sep
tember 29, 1890. So that, as the law
now stands, parties entitled to purchase
under the third section, but. not actual
residents on the land, mast make pay
ment on or before February 3, 1893.
Actual residents on the land, will have
until September 29, 1893."
' No one doubts that Dr. Sago's Catarrh
Remedy really cures Catarrh; whether
the disease be recent or of longstanding;

is one that is .f'on. call' in a moment;
That moment is when you ' prove that
its makers can't euro yon. The reason
for their , faith is this : ; Dr. , Sage's
