The many renders of the Nugget
have our earnest and most sincere
wishes for a happy and prosperous
New Year. To all those who have
helped us by their patronage we
extend thanks. Our aim shall be
in the future to make the Nugget
worth v of their patronage and
commendation. The varied in
terests 01 bouth Lane countv
shall be closely guarded and pro
moted at all times. We believe
that Cottage Grove has a great
future. Its varied contributory
interests are all in the ascendancy
and the future will surely bring
great good. The agricultural,
stock, timber and mirjing interests
that surround us will in the near
future send Cottage Grove to the
front with leaps and bounds. No
section of our great state has more
to look forward to and the Nugget,
as in the past, shall continue to
sound its praises.

The New Year's edition of the
Oregon Statesman of fifty-six pages,
printed on fine gloss book paper,
and elegantly illustrated with half
tone pictures of all the state and
county buildings, many of the large
business houses and manufacturing
establishments, its leading and most
prominent men, and containing a
wonderful store of information
about Salem and Marion county,
reached our table yesterday. It is
an edition for the Statesman to be
proud of, and the commonwealth of
Salem and Marion county should
feel a pride in supplying the sinues
of finance to so able a journal. The
Nugget congratulates the States

minute detail the vast and varied

achievement worthy of that great
paper. As year succeeds year this

cellence in the matter of its annua
edition, tne ever untoiding re
sources of Oregon furnishing new

The time is now at hand when it
is imperative that the business men
ami property owners of this city
must take upon themselves the
duty of securing for the proposed
Cottage Grove and Bohemia rail
road the free and perfected right of
way for the conjunction of thai
road. Many little quibbles have
arisen and a disposition is being
shown on the part of some of the
owners of the land through which
the road must pass, if built at all.
to retard its progress by unjust and
unreasonable demands, while others
take no interest in the project and
seemingly do not care whether Cot
tage Grove goes forward to a sub
stantial future or stands still. To
arrive at a definite understanding
of this most vital question and get
a free and full expression of the
citizens of this community, and to
put matters in shapefor immediate
and energetic action, a massmeeting
is now to be called for Wednesday
evening, January 8th, at Martin's
Hall, where it is the wish and de
sire that all parties interested will
be in attendance. The represen
tatives of the railroad people will be
there to lay before our citizens thei
plans, aims and intentions and hope
to meet all who are in any way in
terested in the building of the road
especially the farmers who live and
own property on Row river.
If the road is built and equipped
an outlay of from $300,000 to $500,
000 will have to be expended. This

means the employment of hundreds
of men whose supplies will be
handled here. It means an in
creased and lasting value in real
property not only in the town but

years from 3000 to 5000 people,

all interested, and every man in

be, will earnestly look into this mat

Storm at Santa Ana Was the Most
Disastrous in Thirty Years.
Santa Ana Cal., Dec. 27. This
section of California was visited
today by the mot disastrous wind
and sand storm in over thirty years.
The high pressure of atmosphere
prevalent for several days out on
the desert culminated in a high
wind with a velocity of over forty
miles an hour. With the wind
came pillars of sand, which in this
city, blew up the streets to the
height of twenty and thirty feet,
completely covering everything in
sight. Windows and plate-glass
fronts were broken, outbuildings
carried away, and everything not
substantially fastened was hoisted
in the air.
Large walnut and other trees
that have withstood storms for
years were blown down and several
htiuses were badly damaged. The
sand was so thick and blinding on
the streets that the traffic was prac
tically suspended all day, only
those having urgent business ven
turing out. All trains were one or
two hours late. The electric lights
of the city are all out, and tele-
phono and telegraph service is
