A couple of weeks ago William
II. Holabird, of J,o Angeles, visit
ed Heud nud apettt three daya here
looking about the town and talk
ing about the natural resource of
the country, lie drove across the
mountains from Detroit, the pres
ent terminus of Hie Corvallis t
Eastern. He wanted to .see for
himself aoiitelhing of the quantity
and quality ot the pine in the Des
chutes timlier lielt. -mi from Heud he
went southward into Lake county.
I'rom there he went across to Hums
and then out to the railroad and on
to New York.
Mi. Holabird is a capitalist him
self but the chief significance of his
visit to this country lies in the fact
that he is the professional advisor
of heavy eatem capital in the
western investment field. He has
Iwen a prominent factor in the
organisation of a number of large
institutions, from licet sugar plants
to important railroads. Most of
his activity hitherto has lieen in
thcMMithwcsl but lie has n good
working acquaintance with the
Pacific northwest.
Crossing the mountains by a very
unusual and hard route he was a
close olserver of the physical char
acter of the route. On the way to
Hcnd nothing escaped his attention.
Mo wo -onroft.1 to sua what the
country was producing, he exam
ined the soif, ascertained its depth
and wrttchel the effect of irrigation
upon it. He made close inquiry of
settlers about the climate. When
he reached TVnd he had a pretty
comprehensive and accurate notion
of the region between us and the
mountains. And he -also had a
good idea of the general character
of the deseit.
Since then it ha transpired that
negotiations were on foot for a
transfer of the Corvallis & Kasterti
railroad to people who were already
heavily interested in Central Ore
gon and who are likely vastly to in
crease their holdings here. As an
indication of the trend of affairs, an
order has been placed here for a
cattle ranch of ao.oooacres no less
is wanted. The recent change in
the Hooth-Kclly Lumber Company
is understood to be in furtherance
of the railroad aud big develop
ment for Central Oregon.
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph II. Cald
well cauic down from tlrcir Paulina
prairie ranch the first of the week
aud- left immediately f6r Walla
Wa,lla, Wash., wheiu they will
spetld the winter.
Mr, Holabird was not here for
his health. It is practically certain
that he was here in the interest of
heavy capital looking" to this field
for investment. Whether such in
vestment has becli a'cUially decided
011 is, of course, unknowti'but in
dications point to 'a viry large
movement here withju pie year.
