IRE HFTEH TIMBER
MANY SEEKERS AFTER FOR
EST LAND IN JOHN DAY.
More Than 20,000 Acres Have Been
Located During Past 90 Days on
Strength of a Rumor That Railroad
Will Go In.
There is a great rush reported to
be on at tho present time to take up
lands in the vast timber belts of the
John Day country. Within the past
three or four weeks as many as thir
ty or forty timber entries have been
made in the yellow pine belts of the
.Nort Fork of the John Day and Des
Timber locaters are busy looking
up government corners and staking
out locations all through that part
of the country, while as many as
eight and ten new land seekers are
going In nearly every day:
The greatest activity in this line
is over in Crook county, where some
20,000 acres have been taken up with
in ithe past 90 days. There has also
been some talk at Sumpter recently
of a rush for the splendid body of
timber along the middle fork of the
John Day, beyond Clifford, and it is'
stated that the land has been cruised
in the interests of the O. It. & N.
which will shortly make locations of
immense tracts and proceed to open
up that country.
Of course this is mere rumor, and
cannot be substantiated until the fil
ings are made, but it is an undoubt
ed fact that cruisers have been over
the ground and already a movement
is on foot to take up the land. Peo
ple living in Sumpter, who make it
a business to keep posted in such
matters, knowing that something of
kind is on foot, have taken ten or a
dozen claims in that vicinity. These
extensive filings on timber lands al
ways precede the establishment of
transportation facilities, for wKaout
transportation the timber Is worth
lltle or nothing. Generally men who
have a means of knowing that some
railroad is to be extended, organize
for the purpose of acquiring large
tracts. They can not keep their
movements secret for long, but when
it becomes known that such a scheme
is on .foot, the public steps in and
takes a flyer for luck.
There is scarcely a doubt but what
this is the case at present, and those
who have not used their timber land
right will never find a better oppor
tunity. They will have to act quick
ly, however, for If they do not the
choice quarters will be taken by the
hirelings of some syndicate organized
to gobble up everything in sight; and
all will be filed on, too, within a few
days after the movement is inaugu
OREGON FARED VERY WELL
SO SAYS CONGRESSMAN
TONGUE OF THIS STATE.
Thinks We Got All That Was Com
ing to Us Visit of River and Har.
bor Committee Helped.
"Oregon and "Washington fared
well in this season's river and harbor
bill," said Congressman Tongue, of
Oregon, to a representative of the
press after his return from the Na
"In fact," he added, "our appropri
ation this year was a record breaker.
I attribute this largely to the visit
made last year to the Pacific north
west by members of the house river
and harbor committee.
"They freely admit that that trip
was a revelation to them, and that
they had previously had no concep
tion of the magnitude and resources
of the great country drained by the
Columbia and Snake rivers.
"After that trip I found it was not
necessary, in asking -for appropria
tions for these rivers, to argue that
the Improvements were of national
importance. I was particularly pleas
ed at our success In obtaining a large
appropriation for the work of over
coming the obstructions in the Co
lumbia river at Celllo. I nave no
doubt that this appropriation binds
the government to the undertaking,
and that further appropriations will
be made from time to time to carry
on and complete the work."
"Who will be the republican stand
ard bearer in 1904?"
"It la too early to venture pre
dictions. (President Roosevelt is evi
dently popular with the masses, and
if he retains this popularity, ihe will
undoubtedly be a strong .candidate.
Will Mark Hanna be a poMlblllty?
Yes, .1 regard .him asj8omethlBg more
than a possibility, though he insists
both in .public and to his friends that
he Is not a candidate. The public is
readjusting its opinion of Mr. Hanna,
and undoubtedly his popularity is
Mr. Tongue was reelected at tne
present olectlon in Oregon. He re
mained in Washington all through
the campaign. "I find," he said
laughingly, "that I fare better when
I leave these .matters to my friends.
In 1900 I was reelected by the nar-.
row margin of C5 votes, but In the re-,
cent contest I led by over 7,000."
