Theic has been a rumor in rail
road circles for some time that the
Northern Securities "Co., which
controls the systems of the North
ern Pacific and Oreat Northern
railway companies has boon look
ing over the Eastern Oregon coun
try for a route over which it hopes
to "tap" California in opposition to
the line now controlled by the

Oven now, if a majority of the eiti
Kens hero feet that a saloon is a ne
cessity, we are in favor of a license
being granted to some reputable
man. A saloon which is conducted
openly and according to the re
quirements of law :lloes not cuttse
one-tenth the distress and misery
that is hatched and fostered in the
operation of a "blind tiger." The

it whether a saloon is in the com
munity or no; ami it is much bet
ter for them and for the community
to allow such people to step into a
lawful dispensary of malt and vin
ous liquors than it would be to buy
concoctions of wood alcohol and
other poisons In a "Wind pig."

with the advent of the railroad and
the opening up of our desert lands

The action of Secretary MI itch

the commissioner of the general
laud office dismiirfiing the protest of
C. C. Hutchinson, president of the
Oregon Irrigation Company, re
moves the last obstacle in the way
of the Pilot Butte Company's work.
Mr. Hutchinson protested ngainat
the granting of the application of
flic Pilot Butte Company for rights
of way for canals, by which the lot--ter
conqtaiiy proxed to divert the
wafers of the Deschutes river for
the purpose of reclaiming their lands
recently entered under the Carey
act. The commencement of the
Pilot Butte Company's reclamation
wprk, which will take place with
out great delay since its contracts
are approved and all other obstacles
have been removed, will mark the
begintting-of a great lira of Devel
opment for this section of the coun
try. Irrigation and its benefits arc
practically unknown in Oregon,
only small areas having been irri-
the Cascades for the jmst two or
three years, ami the vjuiotts rumors
have finally focuseed down to one
conclusion the route from Shan
iko to Bead, as sun-eyed by the
Columbia Southern engineers, and
from Bend south over the natural
(MSB between the Klamath emu I,akc
country ami the Deschutes.
The fact that the Paul Mohr jor
tage road has lately been purchased
by the Jim Hill people, and the ac
tivity of the numerous surveying
parties along the Columbia river
between Colilo and Pasco, gives
somewhat more color to these
grapevine" articles than is usually
discernible in the railroad columns
of cur larger daily papers. The
Harriman interoats are strongly
ngfiiust the extension of the Colum
bia Southern from Shauiko to Bend.
They would not take up the requis
ite bonds themselves, nor would
they allow the management of the
Columbia Southern to dispose of
them on the New York stock mar
ket; and they even went so far as
to state that if the Columbia South
ern secured enough local Oregon
capital to build out from Shaniko
the)' would immediately build a
parallel road in opposition.
But the Northern Securities com
panyof which Jim Hill is the head
and tlte Harriman interests are
deadly enemies; and if Mr. Harri-
mati does not keep his eyes open
the Columbia Southern will be in
Hill's hands, and Bend will be the
most important city oti n . railroad
extending from San Hruucisco to
The poople of Crook county can
hail with joy any fight which may
occur between Hill and Harriman,
as it will mean that cither Hill will
buy the Columbia Southern as part
of his system for tapping California,
or Harriman will allow Lytic to ex
tend in order to keep Hill away.
With the assurance of the port
age road around the dalles of the
Columbia, and the fight on between
Harriman and Hill, the Columbia
Southern will soon be independent
of the O. R, & X., and another
year or two will sec Bend connected
with the outside world by two
shining bands of steel, and tlte
shrill whistle of the locomotive will
awaken the slumbering industries
of the upper Deschutes valley to an
active participation in the business
affairs of the great Northwest, and
people will begin to realize that
there is more in this groat undis
covered country of Central Oregon
than mere occasional spurts of hot
ing squadron at the battle of San
tiago, will be one of the party, and
will be presented with the sword for

The fight for congressman in the
first district is now on, and the Re
publican voters in that district will
be able to take their choice from n
number of able gentlemen who nre
willing to sacrifice their time mid
talents for the good of their con
stituents. Among the candidates
who are expounding their views
and promising plums arc our
old-time office-holding friend, Bin

Stentorian Davcy ami Catch, of

man's friend from Clackamas; and
others too numerous to mention. It
