Discussing lb reason why Wash
ington ha ouUtri-ed Oregon in
population and development, the
Crook comity Journal ay:
"The tate of Washington ha a
population of nearly a million,
while Oregon can Uiaal of no mor
than half that n timber. Oregon
wa admitted to statehood in 1H.VJ,
Washington about 1SS2. The re
source of Oregon are fully a great
a those of Washington, yet the
Utter' population ha doubled our
in less than hlf the time. State
Senator Reed of Yakima county,
Washington, who wa here last
week, gave it as hi opinion that
the only reason hi state ha gained
in population over Or. gou lie in
their superior railroad facilities
Washington ha two transconti
nental railroad ytein crossing
eaet and west, and a third system
now building. Oregon hi one
running along the extreme north
ern border and reallv useful for
about 25 mile south of it track.
All tbe Washington line were pro
jected through undeveloped terri
tory, territory then regarded a
worthle- and uninviting, like our
central Oregon ol today. What an
object lesson! For 350 mile south
of the Columbia there ia do rail
road except on paper, and the
country remain practically in tbe
condition it wa when the Indians
discovered it. It is railroad inac
tivity alone that is responsible for
the lack in population in Oregon.
How long is it to last?"
These are fact with which com
petitive line of road are fully con
versant, which explains the great
activity throughout the state in
surveying new lines, some of which
are bound to be built.
The Oregon press can accomplish
much for Oregon's development by
constantly hammering away on
this line. It will, eventually, and
at no distant day, send several new
transcontinental lines spinning
across the state.
If the roads now so much talked
of are really built the state will
take on a new impetus for growth
that it has never before had. The
people of Oregon are too easy and
slow to grasp opportunities for the
development of the state and nu
merous enterprises have gone by
which might have been kept here.
To Open Rogue River
As Far as Grants Pass
Grant's Pass, Or., Aug. 11. -The
business men of this place are con
sidering a proposition to open
Rogue river to navigation from
Grant's Pass to Wedderburn. That
the river can be made navigable
for boats of light draught has been
proven during the past year by
fishermen, who have been up and
down the stream.
Captain J. M. McTntire, an old
Columbia river steam boatman, says
that if it were not for the rocks he
would rather run a 150-ton stern-
wheel boat on Rogue river than on
the Cowlitz river.
A gasoline launch has been run
ning on the river this summer,
hauling fish and towing the fish
boats for a distance of 30 miles
down the river.
With Rogue river freed from
these obstructions, a part of Ore
gon will be opened up whioh is
now practically isolated for lack of
traniportation. The supplies for
this section are now packed in from
West Fork with mules.
The Gram's Pass Commercial
Club has taken the matter up, and
a committee has been appointed to
work with the business men to
raise funds with which to remove
the obstruction to navigation.

of all baby' who cry and are treated
for sickuess, when they really are suf

from their food not being asaimlluted
but devoured by worms. A few dosee
of White's Cream Vermifuge will cause
them to cease crying and begin to
thrive at once. Give It a trial. Hold
