Most pf that time was speiif ill

to Chicago a few days. After leav

to qualify himself to report ceitaiu

Itast Mr. Steldl expresses the opin

this locality dccud on the progress
of the big lumber opcrutor in ac
quiring the timber lauds of Central
Oregon. They will not oicn this
region until they have about 75 per
cent of the timber in their own con

per cent. They must yet get hold

And when tlut
time comes they will see to it that
transportation facilities aic provided.
Until that time does come there will
be no timber trnflic to speak of for
a railroad, therefore small induce
ments for immediate railroad con
struction. The reason the big ojxirators in
sist on buying their timber before
beginning to work it up is that the
coming of the railroad will surely
advance the price of private hold
ings to such a figure that it would
be unprofitable for the big ojicrators
to buy then. They calculate on
getting along without the laud they
cannot get hold of before the rail
road comes. And they arc not
willing to open the country for the
general good; they arc not philan
thropists uud arc not posing as
"As to the bearing of this policy
on the growth of Heud, I believe it
will be in every way beneficial,"
said Mr. Stcidl. "I have more
confidence than ever In the future
of Henri. There will be great things
doing here one of these days, though
that may not be so early as some
would like to see. My own busi

obtained considerable blocks of tim

under one management and it will
be a big institution. Our present
sawmill is a trifling incident of this
dciil, but It will go with it. It has
already accomplished its purpose."
Mr. Stcidl says it is not planned
to build up a large sawmill plant at
Henri just now. He will continue
to operate the mill to meet the local
demand, but the large sawmill de

The recent withdrawal of land
in Central Oregon Mr. Stcidl thinks
does not displease the big lumler
men. He believes they are entire
ly satisfied to see a considerable
quantity of timber reserved by the
government. When they wont it
they will know where to go for it
and they have enough influence to
get it then. And its reserve in the
meantime will save them taxes and

for a ten days outing.
Tuesday was the hottest and
most uncomfortable day in Heud
this year. The government ther

hot from early in the morning till
late at night.
W. A. Booth and D. F. Stewart,
prominent Priueville citizens, ac

John Hlricr returned to Henri 011
Tuesday from Pokcgauia, Cul. He
left ten days before with a party of
timber locators and sightseers and
drove them all the way to the new
terminus of the Southern Pacific
a little farther, in fact and then
back again, covering a distance of
more than 500 miles. He reports
that railroad rumors are rife in that
locality and some construction and
other work being done. Steamers

J. C. Conn's freight team passed

on the way to the railroad terminus
at Shauiko with 20,000 pounds of

river by an obstreperous ' log as he
was working on the P. H. I). Co.
flume line yesterday. The stream
is deep nnd rapid with precipitous
banks at that point and it was only
by quick aid from his fellow work
man William Stewart that he es
caped. A finger was severely
crushed in the accident.

firm of Muller & Co., Davenport,

Monday on their way up to the tim
ber. That company already has a
large block of pine lauds in this
belt and is after still more.
Chester Hollinshond was up the
river last Friday and on his way
back near Lava started a black
bear, which his dog soon treed.
The young man hustled for a gun
and pumped a few shots into bruin,
who finallyxame down with both
forelegs and his jaw broken. That
was the dog's opportunity and he
made the most of it, and the bear
did the only thing left for him to
do, namely, died.
Master Fred Lucas had his 1 1 th
birthday on Saturday last. Uncon
scious of that fact, however, he had
gone to his room at the Inn for an

soundly when a lot of his boy and
girl frieuds pounced in on him and
woke him up and gave him a real
surprise party. The tots had an
enjoyable afternoon, playing their
games and romping as only children
can, and they left substantial tokens
of esteem, also, in the form of

bered up and iu condition for reg

feet of lumber has been sawed iu
this process. The plant is found
to work well and the lumber made
there is incomparably better than
what was turned out at the Heud
mill. The timber is of much better
quality back from the edge of the
desert. On the flume line work is
progressing satisfactorily and flume
construction will begin when the
lumber is ready for it.
II. H. Pink, of Idaho Palls, Ida
ho, arrived iu Hend Monday eve
ning and spent two days looking
over this section. Idaho Palls is
the center of a large area of irri
gated laud and the people there
have great faith in rational irriga
tion as a means to agricultural
prosperity. Mr. Pink says the ir
rjgated lands there sell readily at
$75 an acre. They are largely
used for growing sugar beets. Mr.
Pink finds many conditions here
similar to those of the Idaho Falls
country and he expresses the con-
victiou that the beet sugar industry
would be very successful Jicre.

Going down the Sisemore hill the
four-horse team became frightened
and ran away. Hoth men were
thrown off by an untimely jolt and
the team bid fair to strew the outfit
along the road, but one of the
horses fell and that retarded their
speed until Mr. Hollinshoari ran out
and set the brake and stopped the
circus. Mr. Thorbjornson's back
was quite severely wrenched by the
fall and one of Steidl &. Reed's
horses was somewhat bruised.
