A well-known citizen of Fossil writes
the following letter as an eye-opener to
what the citizens of Fossil want and
what they are doing:
Fossil, Ore., March 20, 1896.
Editoe Dalles Chronicle :
I wish to call attention to the opening
ef theproposed road from Fossil to the
head , of navigation, The Dalles. All
eyes 'are turned towards The Dalles from
all this section, and away to the south
and east of us. Last fall representative
citizens from here met Joe Sherar, who
represented the interests of The Dallcfa,
and with him they viewed out and
agreed upon a location of a road that
would give this section a direct route to
The Dalles. The citizens of Gilliam
county who were taking the initiative,
have petitioned our county court for the
location of a public highway on the pro
posed route so far as it applied to Gi'liam
county, leaving off at the John Day
river, just below the mouth of 30-Mile.
.Our part of this highway has been sur
veyed, what damages that were found
have been paid by the citizens of this
place, and the road has been ordered
opened. It will cost several thousand
dollars to build this road to the ter
minus at the John Day, but it can be
made a good road, and work will be
.lmenced by private subscription, as
boon as we know that a road and bridge
will. be built to there, from the other
side. The proposition, coming to
from your people, through Mr. Sher;
was to build the - road on the other side
of the John Day, and build a bridge over
the John Day.
This matter is of too much importance
to let it sleep much longer. The Dalles
will Boon be ia the situation to hold the
same relation to all this country that
she once held before the building of the
railroad the one great commercial
center, and while it will be to all of our
interests to get to The Dalles direct, and
we are willing to put in our time and
means, we expect The Dalles to pursue
the policy indicated last fall and meet
us half way with the expense. The un
dertaking is too great to do alone, and
unless The Dalles wakes up to her in
terests, we will be found working teeth
and toe nail to get .competing portage
and river communication to Arlington.
We would like to have this road to The
A local telephone system is now being
put in at Fossil. The very best in
struments that could be procured for
long distance lines only are being used.
We are starting with a twenty drop
switch board, the central office being'at
A. B. Lamb's drug store. It will con
nect with all the principal places of
business in our town, and run in various
directions into the country. The most
important local circuits will be the ones
running out to Gilman, French & Co.'s
ranches, twenty-five or. thirty miles ; a
line up the creek to the saw-mill, six
miles; aline up Cotton wocd to Chas.
Prinle's, three miles. . Others are talked
of, but these' have instruments pur

Sole Agents for the above
chased. Now if this wagon road goes to
The Dalles, we want this telephone line
to go there along the new road.
Fossil will have the biggest building
boom this season in its existence. The
principal buildings will be a two story
brick by the I. O. O. F. hall association,
about 30x65, and a two story brick by
Senator Steiwer, size about 32x80. Mr.
Gilmf n will build a residence here also
for his family. As Wood never does
anything by halves, it will likely be the
best dwelling in this neck of the
woods. ' XYZ.
Pease & Mays' store was thronged
last evening, and so was the sidewalk in
front of the store, with people, young
and old, to listen to the fine musical
program prepared by the Orchestral
Union for the annual opening of the
store. The several numbers were given
in a manner that did ample credit to
their composers, and they comprised
such world-renowned musicians as Pryor,
Keisler, Gounod, Morse and others.
Before the program commenced, the
large number of people were shown the
courtesies of the store by its genial pro
prietors and clerks. All of the different
departments were thrown open to visit
ors. The etore was as neat as a pin
throughout, and the goods were shown
to an excellent advantage. The follow
ing was the program: .
