and the Great Northern unless one
or the other does not care to par
ticipate, in which event the other
may proceed on its responsibility.
Authoritative sources pointed
out today that the harmonious ar
rangement effected between the
two rival railways precludes the
possibility of a disastrous compe
titive stampede to throw the rich
timber resources of the Klamath
basin on the lumber market.
The agreement of the two rail
road systems ends a controversy
of more than two years duration.
The interstate commerce commis
sion originally gave the Oregon
Trunk permission to extend to
Klamath Falls provided that an
agreement was reached to avoid
duplicate railway construction.
These negotiations failed and the
interstate commerce commission
gave the Oregon Trunk permission
to build independently into the
Klamath basin. The Northern
Pacific withdrew from the enter
prise and the Great Northern as
sumed the project on its own re
sponsibility. Mr. Budd met Mr. Sproule In

intensive training and maneuvers

received at headquarters from the
war department, the government
footing the bill which will exceed

road transportation, camp con
struction and the pay and rations
of the men, ammunition and
equipment are added in. In re
