Mr. T. H. Wilcox, committee
man from the Portland board of
trade and chamber of commerce to
confer with Hnrriman about a rail
road to Central Oregon and also to
investigate the difficulties which
cause the delay in the settlement
Iwtwccn the Columbia Southern
and the Hnrriman people, returned
to Portland on Sunday. While in
New York City Mr. Wilcox and
Mr. Hnrriman had n conference in
which Central Oregon was prom
ised n railroad as soon as arrange
ments could be made. The rail
road specialist on the Orcgonian
immediately conjures up n talc of
the O. R. & N. building a line
up the Deschutes river.
The Deschutes route is a very
feasible one, but our private opin
ion is that some O. R. & N official
told this to the Orcgonian man in
order to bluff the Columbia South
ern into coining to their terms. We
believe that the O. R. & X. Co.,
rather than build about seventy-five
miles of new line, will absorb the
line now owned and operated by the
Columbia Southern, and will ex
tend it over the route now surveyed
and mapped out to Bend and Cen
tral Oregon.
The Portland merchants should
now get in and see to it thnt Harri-
man keeps his promise. It will be
the means of making the most fer
tile, most resourceful and largest
part of Oregon tributary to Port
land and its -merchants, and1 will
also make the people who have been
hanging on in this country for the
past few years by their eyelids rich
beyond their present wildest dreams.
This is very goal news for Central
Oregon, ami it is up to the people
of Portland to make it good and re
ceive our buiinefcs. As Artemus
Ward says, "You scratch my back,

In a characteristic "editorial"
appearing in the Prineville Review
this week, the editor displays his
vulgarity and training, nud also
places us in an unfavorable position
before the very few who take his
article as the truth. Far from mak
ing sport of the smallpox epidemic
in Pnncvillc, we- simply printed
last-week a scries of daily reports
as they were brought to us by peo
ple who were scared almost to
death; and as this happened before
Dr. Rosenberg began circulating
his daily bulletins we of course
heard all manner of exaggerated
talcs about the spread of the dis
ease a great deal more, in fact,
than was published. If we unwit
tingly offended any of the people in
Prineville we earnestly sue for par
don; but we should like to hear
from others besides the editor of the
Review, as we feel that intelligent
people will not misunderstand our
article on the smallpox in Prine
ville. It is only people who wear
a number 5 hat and a number 14
shoe, like the Review man, who
pick flaws where there are none,
and who troth at the mouth every
time the wind changes direction.
The advertisement of the Colum
bia Southern' Irrigation Co., which
appears elsewhere in these columns,
is of interest to the people in this
community, and shows, despite the
efforts of knockers, that the segre
gated area west of the Deschutes
is very apt to have water before the
land on the cast side.
Dr.JRosenberg is to be commondad
for taking steps to inform the citi
zens of the spread and progrcaa of
smallpox in Prineville.' The doc
tor is city physiciun, and he issue
n bulletin every day, which is dis
tributed over the entire county, 'in
forming the public of the exact con
dition of the patients, who the sun
jwcts are, nnd in some instances the
treatment employed. It is needles
to soy the reports are greatly ap
preciated out at IJend; not a line in
the little printed sheet goes unread.
It is shameful nay, almost crim
inal, to hush up the fact of the ex
istence of smallpox, or any conta
gious disease, in a community, and
the step taken by Dr. Rosenberg is
well timed. Country newspajwra
generally hesitate about telling the
truth in such cases for fear of giv
ing their town a black eye, and the
result is that what is left undone by
the papers is attended to with a
vengeance by the traveling public;
and reports from the latter source
lose not a tithe of their magnitude
while in transit.
In compliance with instructions
from the general land office, regis

land offices may compel attendance
of witnesses in land cases. They
are authorized to issitc subpoenas

The sudden death on Saturday of
lost week of Clms.jJ. McDowell.
theApropriotor of the Hotel Prine
ville, was the greatest shock this
community has sustained for a long
time. Mr. McDowell was one of
the best known and most popular
men in Crook county, and the sin lit
of his genial countenance in the
Hotel Prineville will be greatly
Mr. McDowell's sickness was
short and his death very sudden
and unexpected. It seems that on
Wednesday of last week he rode a
horse down to his ranch, about
three miles from Prineville, and as
sisted in branding some calvos. He
was taken sick on Thursday, and
on Friday Dr. Woods Huteliinsnii.
of the state health bnrd, assisted
by several of the'PrineviJle doctors,
performed an operation on him for
appendicitis, from which he was
unable to rally, and he peacefully
passed away on Saturday evening.
It hardly seems just to take away
a man like Charley McDowell,
whom everyone liked, and who was
a good-hearted, whole-souled, gen
erous man, just in the prime of life,
when there are so many people in
the community who have no object
in life and simply live the existence
of a human sponge, whose depar
ture for "that undiscovered coun
try" would not attract general no
tice nor comment.
Mr. McDowell had an influence
for good over every one with whom
he came in contact, and his place
cannot be easily filled.

The mustache will probably sur
vive every other form of the beard,
becaunc it in the most flattering to
the vanity of the young. It is on
the upper lip that the down' of

way Jones always looked?" Jones,
in the meanwhile, is not seriously
troubled. He Is pleased with the
novelty of his aspect; he thinks
upon the whole that it was n pity to
hnvc kept so much loveliness out of
sight so long. As he passes his
hand over the shapeless expanses,
with the sntinfaction which nothing
but the smoothness of u freshly
shaven face can give, he cannot re
sist the belief that people are ad
miring him. At any rate he has
that air.
Perhaps they are; and yet to our
own taste, we think he mostly
looked tetter in his beard, Of
course it was foul; a beard cannot
really be kept clean; but,it yas nat
ural, and it wis dignified. It hid
certain things, cortain features, ex
pressions, that were best hushed up.
That smirk, that sensual pout, that
bulldog clinch, they were all merci
fully hidden or thej' were at least
so much palliated that they re-
remained a dark suspicion, and not
this dreadful conviction with which
they now afflict the spectator. It
can be said that there is a gain for
honesty if not beauty in the new
fashion of shaving, and this cannot
well be denied. Hut it appears that
the Creator could not trust the hu
man countenance to itself, at least
as it was given to men,, and found
it uest to liusli it up ill a jungle of
hair. Women were fashioned so
fair tliat they could be allowed to
look what they really were; but
with men it was another story.
