The opening' of the tremendous
pine resources of the eastern slope
of the Cascaded would be one of
J. he, results accomplished.' Klam
ath county alone; claims , almost
50.600,000.000 .-feet of timber
available.' and Lake county has
one-guarter as much. The recent
saje of a billion feet from the na
tional forest north of Burns; and
the promise of aj private logging
railroad '50 miles ; In length to
serve the timber needs of this sec
tion, 'indicates what the pine re
sources are;-- There is fully half
a million acres of Irrigated or
easily Irrigable land within ; the
territory to be served by these
new roads, land i that- produces
marvelous crops. These lands have
a permanent, potential production
that looks almost as good as even
the tremendous timber possibili
ties. ' -f:. '
" ! Adventures Are Thrilling
The party bad some Interesting
adventures' en route. One was the
encountering of a series ef cloud
bursts on the road from Lakeview
northward ' to The Dalles. Land
that looked as if it had been dry
for years and it usually is dry.
for some of the country has an
annual precipitation of only about
eight Inches -' a year was fairly
afloat with the torrential down
pours of the past few-days. For
more than 100 miles the party fol
lowed the trail of 'these storms,
that were - accompanied by severe
electrical disturbances. Twice the
lightning struck very close to the
travelers. Once it shattered the
fence only a few rods away. The
party drove into- one innocent ap
pearing flat that 'fooled 'em and
mired them down In. ' the desert
for almost a day, without food or
good drinking water. ; . ; j
Good Croo Growing
One of the finest crops ever
grown' in' central i Oregon ts now
being produced all through the
section to be served by the Jro-
posed group of railroads. There
are some long stretches that are
not inhabited, like-the one from
Plash' to the Hanley ."00" ranch,
sout'a of Burns,' almost 1 0 0 miles
without , a watercourse,' without a
single person, living. But wner-
men do live the crops look as if
they would make them happy;
There are antelope in this open
country as beautiful, as fleet, and
almost : as Innocently curious as
they were when the country was
discovered, The . party found these
animals,', and deer, and waterfowl
innumerable, and coyotes, and one
great grey wolf, all in this, Jour
ney.1 ;V There are atfU some wild
horses, running in bands up to 50
or more, but these did hot show
themselves. 1
Imposing Figures Gathered '
The commission has - gathered
an Imposing array or 'figures with
which to prove Its contention that
although. Oregon jneeds the rail
roads from a humane point - of
view it Is hard, profitable' busi
ness for the interstate commission
to order the lines built, with less
regard for any local sphere of in
fluence or hope oil monopoly. than
for the prof it. and the service that
can be made and given'.' The hear
ing Is at Portland August 10." The
party was headed; by H. K, Corey,
Chairman ot the public service
commission. ,

i Casey was convicted in : the

the lower court. When the man
date of the supreme court was
sent back to the lower court, pre-
paring the way for Casey to be
resentenced to hang, the motion
was made for. recall of the man
date, which ' would allow of fur
tner consideration, one reason
for the motion was that John L
Burns, who was believed to be
equally guilty with Casey, was ac
quitted in the lower court.
