Mr. Htrahorn returned this morn

finlshod tho detallH, so far as was
possibln, of the line's entrance Into
thut city. Tho people there, aside
from voting a 1.100.000 bond issue
to aid the project, have pledged their

right of way for 20 miles toword

wide has already been obtained.
Committers of women have braved
tho zero weather of the last few

GROWTH OF CITY

and AhocIuUk, Almost exactly

fredlctlous Come True.
How the present prosperity of of
(lend, and its Industrial development
was foreseen seven years ago, is
graphically shown In a contour map
which tiangs In the office of the
Homeseekcrs' Land' Company, and
which was drawn, based on the ideas
of It. P. Minter, and associates.
Probably the most remarkable In
stance of realization of the predic
tion of seven years ago, is in the
location of the sawmills on the river.
These were shown on the map, and
the exact location of the present
plants varies only 100 feet from the
site forecasted for them.
The flour mill Is almost at the ex
uct point predicted by the makers
of the map, the surveys for the Stra
horn railroads, the Tumalo ditch,
the Squaw Creek ditch, and the Pilot
Butte canal, now known as the North
canal, all go to back the Judgment

Mr. Minter fails to see anything
unusual about it. "It was Just a
case of using common sense," he de
clared this morning. "The map was
based on tho natural conditions of
the country, and when the different
industries came in here, they used
the most advantageous situations.
A part of the predictions made have
come true, and others, such as the
Strahorn roads, seem likely to be
fulfilled in tho near future.
"Some of the railroad locations
shown on the man have not become
realities, such as the line connecting
Hend and Prlnevllle. But these were
considered not as probabilities, but as
