Mention in the Oregonian of Pos
sibilities for Local Railroad.
Concensus of opinion of mil
road officials and those acquaint
ed with the situation is that the
appropriation of $4,160,000 set
aside by the Harriman lines for
construction of new track, the
location of which is still an offi
cial secret, is that the capital has
been set aside for building the
projected Oregon Eastern. Pro
vision having been made and al
ready announced for the other
important projects, it is recalled
that E H. Harriman on the oc
casion of his last visit to Portland
, made the public statement that
the time had now arrived when
a line should be extended into
Central Oregon. The amount is
sufficient to construct about 200
miles of track if not through a
region of difficult arid expensive
Tremendous interest has been
-aroused in Central Oregon by
the publication of the fact that
such an amount is available and
that the region seems most pro
bable for its expenditure Maps
of Klamath, Lake, Harney and
Malheur counties are being stud
ied in the Northwest with avidity
and persons who have traversed
portions of that vast ' region the
largest in the United States with
out a railroad are sought as
mediums of information.
While the route of the Oregon
Eastern is problematical," the
Crescent Lake Pass, it is gener
ally believed, will be selected as
. the most feasible route from the
Willamette Valley, following up
the main headwaters branch of
that stream from Natron. But
judged by the, map there seems no
great difficulty presented in span
ning the state from east to west,
and also in skirting the eastern
foothills of the Cascades to the
promising traffic districts of Kla
math and Lake counties. As
previously pointed out in these
columns the route is one that
would enable the Klamath Lake
line to maintain the altitude of
the great district soon to be under
irrigation works built by the Re
clamation Service, without any
wide divergence from a direct
route, making it the road of
shortest mileage to the region
from Portland, and placing this
trade center in communication by
less mileage than any other. Pacific
Coast common point.
As many theories were acP
vanced in Third street as there
were men having familarity with
difiereni sections of the state.
While Central Oregon was ac
cepted as the goal, the route to
be selected was regarded as dubi
ous and there are those who be
lieve it means extension of the
Corvallis & Eastern, of the West
Side lines to the coast, or of the
Arlington-Condon branch of the
Columbia Southern.
E. E. Lytle, ex-president of
tne Columbia Southern, empha
sized the denial made by General
-Manager O'Brien that the Tilla
mook road was in any way in
volved. An expression - of in
jured astonishment suffused his
face at the suggestion ' of j any
connection of his plans with
those 6t the Harriman System,
Mr. Lytle said: '
The money for the Pacific
Coast Railway to-Tillamook,
Nehalem and the,6ther points we
aim to connect with Portland, by
. uirect lines, is in ine .First, JNa
tional Bank. It has been there
for two years and the officials of
the bank can tell who deposited

Thus, denial is had in unmis
takable language from both Gen
eral Manager O'Brien, of the
Harriman lines, and Mr. Lytle
that the line to Tillamook is to
be built without the assistance of
Harriman Capital
Colonel William Crooks, presi
dent of the Oregon Eastern
Railway Company, is non-communicative
as to what is trans
piring in the official circles of the
auxiliary company, the operations
of which promise to be of the
most consequential in developing
the largest section of Oregon,
rich in latent resources that has
remained up to this time remote
from the rest of the state and
without transportation facilities.
Benefit of Local Fairs,
There should be more district,
county and neigborhood fairs
held throughout the country.
The holding of such fairs means
some work for evervone connect
ed with them, and especially for )
the leader in the enterprise, as
some public-spirited person al
ways has to take the lead and
bear the heavy ends of such
things, but fortunately almost
every community has some per
son well qualified for such work
that likes to do it, and the one
who has this ability and inclina
tion should receive sufficient re
muneration so that they can af
ford to devote their time and
energy in that direction. The
beneficent results will doubly re
pay all such expenitures.
The benefits along the line of
inducing people to buy and
breed better stock and to strive
harder for perfection in all lines
of production are so apparent
and have been cited so often that
it is scarcely necessary to reiter
ate them here, but we do want to
emphasize one point entirely too
much overlooked by the masses
in. their tiresome round of daily
toil with the single purpose of
getting wealth.
Four Handsome Silver Cups.
The poultry show, which is to
be given in this city November
30 to December 2, is going to be
unusually interesting. The as
sociation has purchased four very
handsome silver enps to be award
ed as follows: Ten highest scor
ing birds in the show; best pen
in the show (to be awarded by the
judge); best collection Buff Or
pingtons; best exhibit Barred
There will be on exhibit many
fine and rare pheasants, pigeons,
guinea pigs, ferrets and pet
stock. Catalogues ar to be
mailed today and on inquiry
from any part of the country one
will be mailed free.
The various papers throughout
the country are doing the noble
act by us and assisting in every
way to make our show a success.
As a sample of the spirit shown
we reprint the following excerpt
from the Brownsville Times:
We have received a neat card
conveying the tidings that the ed
itor of the Times has been made a
member of the Association with
all dues paid in full until January
1, 1906. It is lucky for the Asso
ciation that the dues are fixed up,
else the Association might have
had "something coming" for a
long time. It is evident that the
handsome secretary of the Cor
vallis Poultry Association has
had experience around a print
ing office himself. We suppose
the membership entitles the edit
or to all the yellow-legged chick
en that he 'can eat provided he
attends the, meeting of the Asso
ciation from November 30 to
December 2, at which time the
greatest poultry show going will
be held. Corvallis is making
big preparations for the event.

Eugene Beats Corvallis By Score
of 6 to 0.
lt,s all over now but the shouting,"
but aa a memory it . will linger long.
We refer to the game of football Satur
day between the U of O and OAC, on
the field of the former. A.n immense
crowd went up from this city; some
seven or eight coaches composed the
train and every coach was crowded. Our
sports were prepared to bet and did bet,
you bet.
We lost and our people are taking the
defeat as cheerfully as possible. We
have no excuses Eugene has abetter
team than we tt ought. The Oregonian
contained the following write-up of the
game :
Two thousand people with nerves
strung to the highest tension saw the
University of Oregon football eleven de
feat the Oregon Agricultural College on
Kincaid Field this afternoon. The score
of 6 to 0 stands for the hardest, cleanest
aad in all respects the best game ever
seen in the Northwest, and the figures
probably represent the comparative
strength of the two elevens. .. 1
Gordon Moores, a fair-haired youth
who plays on Oregon's left end, made
the single touchdown of tha day after a
sensational run of 45 yards, just before
the end of the first ha'f. Oregon had the
ball in the middle of the field, and Cap
tain Latourette called a quarterback
kick, which went over the scrimmage
line and slightly to the left.
Kerron, who was on side, rushed for
ward, grabbed the leather, but fumbled
it. The ball struck a Corvallis man and
rebounded into the open arms of Moores,
who pulled away from his pursuers with
the speed Of a race horse. For 45 yards
he tore dov n the white-ribbed field with
half a dozen Agriculturists ia hot pur
suit. The goal line was reached, and a
touchdown was made amid the shouts
and cheers of a thousan 1 voices. Frissell
kicked a goal.
To say that todays game was a great
exhioitio 1 of football, does not half tell
the story. Enthusiasm was at white
heat and the organized rooters of both
institutions, aided by brass bands,
cheered their favorites till the call of
time. Songs . were sung, yells were
barked out by hundreds of pirched
throats, and after the game was over the
display of enthusiasm' was carried on for
Our Bpecial writer furnishes the follow
ing on the subject :
On a fast field before 2,000 spectators,
the Oregon Agricultural College football
team met defeat in the annual game
with the University of Oregon at Eu
gene November 11, Although the backs
were hurled through the 'varsity line for
yardage time and time and again, and
after they had advanced the ball ovar
half the lencth of the field without a
stop and had planted it on Oregon's 6-
yard line, the plucky lads were unable,to
The game was close, the rooters from
each college bursting forth into the con
tioual cheers, making the game all the
more interesting, Oregon's playing was
characterized by trick plays, delayed
passes and end runs. They were not
sure of gaining ground through the line.
On the other hand OAC had little
success iu running the ends, but rammed
through the line for handsome gains. In
many cases neither team could make
yardage by any formation and a free
exchange of punts was the result.
Oregon kicked off to Corvallis' 10-yard
line; the ball was brought to the ground
on the 20-yard line, By short end runs
and heavy line plunges OAC carried the
ball to the middle of the field and lost on
downs. ... ,' .
Oregon took the ball around right end
for 6 yards. v different formations
they carried the ball a few yards, but by
a fumble which they recovered, thev
failed to make' : yardage and OAC took
the pigskin on their own 35 yard run.
After a few good gains they lost the ball
on downs on Oregon's 35-yard line.
Eugene sent their backs around Coop
er's end but could not make yardage,
Moores tried right end, but Ehinehart
tackled him behind the line. Corvallis
was penalized. By delayed pass one of
the backs was sent through right tackle
for 5 yards. Oregon now punted from
center of the field to "Williams who ad
vanced the .ball to the 35-yard line. Cor
vallis was penalized and Pilkington
punted 1to: the middle of the field. Thi
kind of playicontinued, first OAC would
advance then Ore go a would hold, and
advance, only to be forced to punt or
or loose the ball on downs.
Oregon tried a place kick but failed,
Pilk punted to 50 yard line. Oregon
tried a delayed pass, but Walker broke it
After' another exchange of punts, La
tonrette made a quarterback kick; Moores
I got the ball and run down the field for
the first and only touchdown.. They
kicked the goal.
It was qnly a short time until the half
was up, the ball in OAC's possession
near the 55 yard line.
The second half Oretron recieved the
kick off, but being unable to make yard'
age punted, By a series of short runs
and hard bucks the farmers now ad
vanced the ball down the field to the 6
yard line only to loose on downs. Ore
gon punted out of danger and OAC's
hopes of scoring went down. Although
.i .
me veterans representing the orange
fought until the last down, they never
again had chance of scoring.
It was a game between two well trained
teams with luck in the 'varsity's favor.
OAC carried the ball farther, vet did
not score, so the historian takes the
score 6-0 as a record of the game.
Hops are Slow.
The movement in the hoo
market comes by spurts and the
present quiet spell is what is to
be expected alter the lively trad
er of last week. Prices hold
remarkably steady, there having
been no material alteration in
values for two or three weeks.
unless it be a slight recession in
prices of lower grades. Plentv
of hops, especially common ones,
are tor sale, but there is nn
pressure to market choice grades.
Among the transactions bv
Portland dealers . reoorted last
week were the purchase by A. J.
Ray of the Campbell lot at Eu
gene, 275 bales choice, at nine
cents. Seavey & Metzler bought
the Parrot lot of 100 bales of
primes at Sherwood at 9 cents.
Klaber, Wolf & Netter were re
ported to have bought heavily in
the Independence district around
10 and io( cents, but the deal
was not confirmed at their office.
Salem buyers -were also said to
have been in the field. Two lots
of medium grade hops, aggre
gating 164 bales, were sold in
Woodburn districts at yj4 and
8 cents.
There is a fair movement in
California in Sonoma hops
around S4 cents, but the market
for the big crop ot Sacramentos
has not opened up vet. as there is
no demand now for that quality
of goods. Trading has also fal
len off" in Washington for the
same reason, except in the Che-
naus, where the hops
more resemble those of Oregon.
Poor grades are being neglected
the world over at present, and
this accounts ior the activity of
the Oregon market since the sea
son opened, as the only consider
able supply ot choice hops grown
in 1005 has been in this state.
The common and medium grades
will later hsve their inning when
the better goods are out of the
way. -

Nature has provided bountiful
ly for Western Oregon; it onlv
awaits tne concerted action ot the
people to inaugurate such an era
of development as the world has
ever seen. 1 ne natural resources
of some sections have made them
centers of vast wealth; the enter
prise in the people in other places
has developed cities and matkets
in spite of untoward natural con
ditions. But when the peonle of
the Willamette Valley and Coast
counties add push and persistence
to the immense natural resources
that are ours, a growth in wealth
and population will result, that
