can get an adequRte conception of
this suction by redding nlxiut it.
It is an empire and I am fairly as
tonished at the diiplsy of native re
source and possibilities of develop
ment Hint I observu here. I was
prepared to see timbar that might
some time be used. I wan prepared
to see brood acres that enthusiastic
scientist regard ns having home
future value, lint here I find
Actually present, nud in a form to
appenl to any busbies judgment,
such native wealth and such oppor
tunity for using it that I am sur
prised and gratified beyond ex
pression." Colonel Drake is n Chicago board
of trade man and a coumu of A. M.

Development Company. He and
two other Chicago men, James G.

Captain Samuel A. Craig aud
his sister Miss Mary I..' Crnig, of
Hrookvillc, Peuu., aud Miss
Artuninta liodgers. of Washington,
Peuu., made proof in licud Tues
dny on their timber claims in the

served as congressman in the
famous 57th congress when Tom
Reed was elected spcuker over

impressed with the Deschutes
country. They drove in direct
from Shauiko but returned by way

Richard King returned home
Monday from his trip to Portland.
While there he ascertained that
there was no doubt about curing
his eyes by a surgical oiwrutiou,
but it will be some time before the
eyes are reudy for that. There
must be n period of total blindness
before the diseased lenses can be
removed from the eyes. Whether
this will take months or weeks can
not yet be told. In the meantime
the old gentlemen is guided by his
grandson aud he docs as much
effective business as 'many a man
with good eyes. " '

of thcfe is to have the stretch above
Peud, another will work' llow this
point aud the third will work up
Iroin the vicinity of Porked Horn
butte. On that part of the ditch
line within reach of the river the
workmen will be put as toon as
possible, but the construction of the
more distant strutches must watt
until the canal carries water to
them, which will not be long, how
ever. Construction of flume trestle is
going forward at the rate of about
400 feet a day. About 3000 feet of
this structure will be up by to
.morrow night nearly half its
length. The work is well organiz
ed aud is carried on without .1
Several tons of spikes to Ik used
in putting up the flume proper after
the trestle is completed, are on the
way in from Shauiko aud more are
to come. The flume will never
fail from lack of nailing.
The reason for putting on ditch
crews before the full completion of
the flume is that the. work can be
done to better advantage before
rough weather bets in after the be
ginning of the new year. It is
proposed to add forces all along the
line at the curliest date they- can
