was selected within forty years as a syn

by an American poet, is now thu theatre
of activity, Jocund with thu sounds of civ

It is groutly to tho intcrcRt of California
to have n large population in Oregon and

with important and necessary com

btatcH will bo tributary to each other,

lias a climate poft and salubrious by con

is unrivalled for standard crops. There

Much talk him been Indulged lit, dur
ing tho past year, a-gatding a railroad to
lleppner, Alorrow county, from some
place on the Columbia riser. It had boon
thought quite prubablu that tho 0. H.
N. Co. would run it "feeder" up thu Wil
low Creek valley to lleppner, us soon as
the transportation business of that coun
try would justify it; but It seems tho
li-oplo of Alorrow county came to thu
conclusion they wanted a railroad befuro
thu O. H. i: N. Company was ready, or
willing to build it. I'hcron K. Fell, tlm

carried away uy inu nattering utsclosuro

half of their Company, that If thu neotilu
who wero to reap it harvest of gold by the
Dunning oi siicii it roan would give them
a 1 It t lo subsidy the road they should have.
This news elcctrllled iho People of .Mor
row county. Thoy took it for grunted
that tho road was coming. This was a
settled fact, but where should tho road
terminate. The slumtering jealousy be
tween lleppner and Lexington was sud
denly kindled to tlame. It would never
do to let lleppner gain tho prestige a
railroad terminus would secure. With
this lor u hubby tho Lexington peo
ple started u HiiiMcriptlon pajier,
ami raised a bonus of nearly Ilfty
thousand dollars, which thoy wero to
give the C. & N. V. Company to build
thu road to Ixixington and no further, the
company having partly promised they
would do this for tho b0,000. 'Ihls busi
ness was done lat summer. When the
lleppner icoplo heard what wits being
done, they now tu aims once more. A
conference was had with tlio aforesaid
Btibsidv (lends, and llmillv an itereunient
entered into lhat if tho people would
raise the sum of ono hundred thousand
dollars to bo paid over when the road
was in oieration, they would build the
road to lleppner. a corlutti length or
time was given the people to raise the
money, whuu, it aucccssiul, tho agree
ment was to have Itoen signed, lleppner
and lAxingtou iooplu shook hands across
thu yawning chasm of jealousy oncu more,
und touted their issues. F.ach town was
to raise liny thousand, 'iho lleppner
paper was Boon loaded with the required
amount deposited in a safe, and tho I-ox-iiigtou
paper was daily expected when
suddenly tho news came that it was miss
ing, 'lliis created u commotion. Thu
matter was thoroughly investigated ; and
llmdly, If I ioiiioinwjrriglit.it was decided
from evidence adduced, I fiat puillos in
the employ of another company who
could not sit Idly by and see this valuable
territory supping iroin their grasp, had
purloined it. 'iho time for raising the
money oxpited and tho contract forfeited.
.Morrow county enthusiasm, which had
been 101 in tho shade for boiiiu time, now
droiuicd to zero. Thoy wore getting dis
couraged, nut again l ell pushed noniy lo
tho front, rallied his forces, doubled
his energy, renewed his options, and io
solved to win or H'uttur his loiuuius all

Thu tieoplu began to woudor what in
thu duvil Ihu U. A N. W. wanted forty
miles of independent railroad uii in .Mor
row county for anyhow j that after all tho
O. It, A is. or its Icshcoh were thu only
puoplu who could successfully oporuto a
road thero, bo thoy resolved to give that
company their undivided attention in tho
mutter thenceforth; mid they did It.
That they have succeeded in interesting
them lit tho matter is evidenced by the
fact that lut week, by request of .Man
ager Ilolcoiub, of tho O. It, it N. C,,
u delegation of representatives, men of
lleppner and lixiugtou, came to I'ort
