F.iiRene, May 10. Lane county
fiirmeiH ate protesting loudly
ngnit'ftt the new utock law which re-
r.aii,to.l with the provisions he
was warned by a number of them
not to appear on their premises.
In order to get the matter settled
and to receive iiiHtnictions na to the
procedure to be taken, Dr. Christie
sent for Dr. W. II. Ljtle, state
sheep inspector; Dr. S. W. McClure
federal inspector, and Fi. N. Hutch
instill, of the bureau of animal in
dustry, who found the furmers as
hostile as represented.
It appears the new law was framed
expressly lor Fastern Oregon sheep
owners alone, and the Western Or-
on fanners who own a few head
of sheep each were not taken into
account. Lane county farmers
claim that they cannot afford to pay
an inspector to dip their sheep, as
the wealthy owners of Eastern Ore
gon can, and furthermore ft large
pet ccntage of the sheep of the val
ley are in perfectly healthy condi
tion and do not need to be dipped.
Messrs. Lytle, Hutchinson and
McClure thoroughly investigated
conditions here, and while there i
no official announcement, it is said
they have agreed to let those flocks
which tire not affected go without
dipping, but where it is found they
are diseased the law must be com

were here tendered his resignation

reason that on account of the hos-
tility of the farmers in regard to

to enforce it incnr their enmity,

To be Built With Private Capital Sub
scribed by the Citizens of Coos and
Douglas Counties -Lane Should
Inhale the Spirit of Enterprise.
The people of Douglas and Coos
counties are stirred up over ihe
proposition to build an ebettic rail
road from Roseluirg to Marshfiel.l.
Meetings have been held in the
principal lowns a.,d committees of
business men appointed to take up
the matter of raising funds for con
struction. It is estimated that the
road will cost $l..r.0i,000 and it is
rroposed to raise this sum in the;
two counties interested, without!
waiting longer for outside capital-'
ists to act. Tho movement seems
to be backed up by ft detei urination '
that spells success, l)orn as it is of
grim necessity. For years relief i
has beeu with-held in this direction
by railroad corporations, who have
promised aid to the shipping and
producing industries of that section
only to fail to keep faith. Now

"And right here," says the Fu
gene Guard, "'it if pet tiueut t im
press up n the people of I.auo coun
ty that they have the power in
their own bauds to solve the rail
road pro dem if they will get to
gether and act decisively. An elec
tric railroad to tidewater on the
Siuslaw would be but 70 miles in
length, and would probably not
cost over $1,000,000 all of which
would be subscribed in stock in
rane county, if the proper interest
and enthusiasm were aroused.
Money could be invested iu no oth
er enterprise that would pay better
returns because our immense lum
bering and agricultural output, all
of which would go ever the new
road, would make it a dividend pay
er from the start.
'As to the effect of v the building
of such a road upon ISugone and all

signed by a number of persons who

e.vei , we I elieve was never carried

another begging propositiou to the
same soutce. to rai-e funds to send
IViry to the North Pole. If Ferry
wants to tlisoovet the North Pole,
let htm ask asistance, jf he needs
it, of those who ure scientifically
interested in discovering it. We
most certainly eudorte the following
taken from the Salem Stitesman,
i egar lin this matter:
The public school children of
nearly every . t ity and district are

lew pennies each to some
movement which is of little conse
quence to them in their efforts to
secme an education; in fact, the
graft as it may well be designated
has beeu permitted to a consider
able extent and the time has come
for it to be checked. The latest
idea to collect money fro.n the
children is in the form of a scheme
to raise funds sufficient to send
Peary ou another north -pole hunt.
The movement was started in the
eastern states not long nince and it
caused a Connecticut paper to cotn
;nent very forcibly and sensibly as
follows: "We dissent wholly and
strenuously from the suggestion,
that our public school children
should be asked to contribute
money to help Pealy to make an
other dash toward tho north pole.
Peary is all right; aud his dashes
toward the uorth pole are all right,
too, so long as men of private for
tuue choose to pay his expenses.

wht'lly different purposes, and
many of those who attend them
have a heavy enough financial task
ou their hands to be there at all.
