The management of the Oregon Rail
road & Navigation Co. takes great
pleasure in announcing that the low
rates from Eastern cities, which have
done so much in past seasons to stim
ulate travel to and settlement in Ore
gon," will prevail again this Spring
DAILY from March 1 to April 15, inclusive.
People of Oregon
The railroads have done their part:
now it's up to you. The colonist rate
is the greatest of all home-builders.
Do all you can to let Eastern people
know about it, and encourage them to
come here, where land is cheap and
home-building easy and attractive.
Fares Can Be Prepaid
At home if desired. Any agent of
the road is authorized to. receive the
required deposit and telegraph ticket
to any point in the East
Remember the Rates
From Chicago, $33; from St 'Louis,
$32; from Omaha and Kansas City,
$25. This reduction is proportionate
from all other cities.

ORGANIZED PUBLICITY EFFORT
BIG INTEREST MANIFESTED
Portland, March 22. Eastern Ore
gon cities are tremendously In earn
est in perfecting their commercial
organizations. During the past
week, under the joint auspices of
the Oregon Development league and
local bodies meetings were held at
Baker City, La Grande, Pendleton,
and The Dalles, and each was ad
dressed by Tom Richardson, secre-,
tary of fcthe Oregon -Development
League. The gatherings rere extra
ordinary in attendance and Interest.
Baker City had the largest at
tendance ever gathered at a pro
gressive meeting. The leading cit
izens, after a conference, determined
to raise a large sum of money and
advertise Baker City thoroughly.
At La Grande a newly built re
vival tabernacle was turned over to
the business men and a great meet
ing resulted. Almost every town
and community in Umatilla county
was represented at the Pendleton
meeting and there is a determination
tc make a great canvass of that
section and to take advantage of the
state law providing for a special tax
for advertising the county. At the
meeting at The Dalles, every seat
In the hall was occupied and stand
ing room was at a premium. Many
prominent mem .were out who had
never before attended a meeting of
These meetings show that Eastern
Oregon is earnestly at work to get
all the benefits- of intelligent pub
licity and the value of this organ
ized effort will appear as time
A. L. Mills, president of Port
land's biggest ba:;k, evidently knows
what he is talking about when he
sayg the Pacific Northwest is the
most prosperous section of the Uni
ted States. He says capital of the
country is easy and It is coming this
way for investment in large quanti
ties. Prospects for this year are
the best, he says, the Northwest
has ever known. He naturally at
tributes a very large part of the
activity at d hue le hereabout to the
large mo unt of railroad building
now under way. This work, he says,
is showing- the confidence the lead
ers in the financial world have in
this section, and it naturally breeds
confidence in others.
John F. Stevens, president of the
Oregon Trunk railwav. now under
construction up the Deschutes to
Central Oregon, say 6000 men are
at work on, the 109 miles now under
construction and the whole thing
is being pushed' with the utmost
possible energy. The present plan
is to build south . only as far as
Bend, although maps have been filed
from Bend south" to the Klamath
Despite heavy weather of the past
winter, inquiry iato crop and stock
conditions show that losses have not
been eo general as was feared.
Some stock was lost on the range
but the percentage is not large.
Piospects in the extensive grain dis
tricts of Eastern Oregon are re
ported to be excellent for a bumper
crop. Grain prospects In the Wil
lamette Valley are said to be some
what less satisfactory. Because of
the unusually heavy snowfall in the
mountains during the past winter,
mere will be plenty of water for
irrigation purpose this year.

The announcement that the offic
ials of the Orgeon Railroad and Nav
igation company are spending up
ward of $10,000 in sending its dem
onstration train through Eastern Or-.
egon this week, is causing the farm
ers of this section to' sit up and
&iany of 4hem are about to come
to the conclusion that the railroad
bu'Mers and the farming experts of
the state Agricultural Coltege are
not mere dreamers. When the first
demonstration train arrived, iu Pen
dleton two years ago, it 'was given
slight attention, but the prediction
i being freely made that the frost

crop every year, on every acre of
kind." Is the slogan of the coun
tv and the agricultural college.

wold sheep, two Shropshire sheep,
