Editor Gazette: I have just
returned from a trip down the
valley to the counties north of
Benton looking up the seed busi
ness, and while there I tried to
talk, business over the telephone
lines to. Corvallis. On account
of so many -' rubber-necks' on
the (lines t it 5'was impossible r to
transact my business. I Jiever
before entertained the idea that
there were so many "rubbering"
on the lines. It seems that
When the bell rings down goes
the receiver on most of the
nhones- if there are any who
don't rubber I did Hot find it out.
I must say that Mt. View line is
an exception on this .A score, as
there is very little rubbering."
Now, what I want is for the
farmers, and the business men
of the towns between here and
Portland, to get to thinking
about putting a commercial tele
phone line, through from Corval
lis to Portland. Say, start at
Corvallis and go to Monmouth,
thence to Dallas, McMinnville,
Hillsboro and on to Portland.
Then start again at Corvallis and
run to Albany, thence to Salem,
Oregon City and on to Portland.
Let the Deople south so tar as
Eugene, or farther, do likewise
and connect with these lines.
Now, my idea of doing , this,
in makine the start, is for the
presidents of each line to jail a
meeting and get together. The
varions nresidents could be the
board, talk the matter over,
select their committee and get
the matter on foot as soon as pos
sible. The larmers, ana . dusi
ness men ot the towns, should
pull together and use their time
and money to bring about this
telephone system. Let the men
of each county run to the county
line and then those of the next
county connect and do likewise.
I do not like this idea ot hav-
. 1 1
ing to pay 15 cents ton several
times a dav it counts up in a
year. It is better to pay ior tne
ine and then the charge win
only be for repairs, and switch
board services until an automatic
system is established. The tele
phone line from Corvallis to Al
bany has put on charges of 15
cents. Now,, listen: The nrst
thin? vou know these million
aires will get their lines through,
then we will pay dearly for our
talk an4 wish we had improved

Say every farmer or business
man who owned a telephone, or
used one, would put up $15 each;
that would mean considerable
money. Still more can be raised
if needed. With these lines
once established we can buy and

on prices, and get the entire
profit without the middlemen

Dress train - that was telescoped
by the Spokane Flyer at Bridal
Veil on Tuesday morning. Mr.
Tones is a brother of Mrs. Hugh
Cnmmings, wife of one of the
new owners of the . Skipton sta
bles in this citv, and visited his
sister for a short time between
tween trains -yesterday. The
young man was in the smoking
icar of. the wrecked train and at
the time of the wreck was in the
act of leaving his seat. ...When
the runaway engine, struck i the
standing train the shock threw
him over the back of three coach
seats and he fell on his head and
shoulders between two -seats in
such a manner as to sustain ser-
inns iniuries. His head and face
were badlv scratched up and his
neck was so badly injured that
he was unable to wear, a collar.
Asked as tovhis iniuries, he
stated that he had seen a physi
cian at the scene of. the wreck
and was informed that he was
not seriously hurt. " Here he was
advised to see an attorney to as
certain just what the extent of
his iniuries were. Mr. Jones
boarded the wrecked train at The
Dalles. His trunk, which was in
the baggage car of the train on
which he came down, was badlv
scarred up as a result of the wreck.
