Because the Baker K'.ver & Shul
shan Railroad Company, incorporat
ed Oregon December 22, 1908, has
a name Identical with a Washington
corporation, Secretary of State Sam
H. Nichols, of Washington, refuses
to allow the Oregon company to file
articles at Olympia so it can do busi
ness in that state. The Oregon com
)ny proposes to build a railroad
from Baker, Skagit county, to Baker
Lake and to a point near Ricky
Coos Bay timber and coal lands,
that have received so much National
advertising through the Roosevelt
Tillman controversy, has received
favorable mention by an agent of
E. H. Harrlman. The agent found,
according to his report, that cedar
grows in the Coos Bay region as no
where else on ear;h and forest of
fir as well. A harbor as good as
is to be found on the Pacific Coast,
and attention is called to the fact of
the Increasing value of terminal fa
cilities and the likelihood of some
one not friendly to the Southern Pa
cific's Interests getting the most val
uable right-of-way unless Harriman's
road gets busy.
Preliminary steps in the formation
of an Incorporation capitalized at
$600,000 were taken at the Irriga
tion Congress, held at La Grande
last week, and attended by over 400
farmers. The direct result of the
meeting was the adoption of a report
which provides for incorporation and
the closing of the subscription books
on April 1, when the construction of
the gigantic project will begin on one
of two plans, namely, the irrigation
of 20.000 acres by building a long
canal to the Sandrldge country, or
by Irrigating 15,000 acres south and
east of La Grande by building a less
expensive canal in another direction.
The cost price for the water- under
either project will be $20 an acre
With Irrigation water, It is believed
that the wheat land will be convert
ed into orchard and small farms
thus enabling the valley to supply
much larger population.
