HILL GETS VERY BUSY
Secures Terminal Grounds
at San Francisco.
CI.OSB ON IIARRIAIAN'S TRAIL

New? has leaked out during the
past week to the effect that James
J. Hill has acquired terminal
grounds on the bay at Son Fran
cisco. Some time before the earth
quake his representatives acquired
valuable land on the bay for ter
minal purposes. The name source
of information states that Hill's
surveys have been completed Ironi
Unite to Boise and on to San Fran
cisco by way of Lakeview.
Another report is to the effect
that Hill men are running surveys
hum V.ureka along Klamath rivt r
to Klamath Falls. It is alto stated
that when Weyerhaeuser, the great
lumber baron, invaded southern Or
egon and northern California about
a year ago and acquired large tim
ber holdings, he did so as an ally of
the Great Northern magnate. Wey
erhaeuser purchased the Klamath
River railway, formerly a logging
road, and will enlarge and extend
it to Klamath Falls. It is said that
this road will be a link in a Hill
line from Klamath Falls to Kureka
and then through western California
to bun Francisco With a termi
nal at Hurckn, Hill would reach
the ocean at a port closer to the vast
inland empire composed of south
ern Idaho, eastern, central and
southern Oregon and northern Cal
ifornia than would I Tamilian with
IKirts at Coos Day and Portland.
Development in this inland empire
will .soon furnish an immense
amount of freight.
With a line from Unite to San
Francisco via Boise and Lakeview
or Klamath Falls, Hill would
desire a connecting line between
this road and the north bank line.
It is generally believed that Hill is
behind The Dalles-Ditfur road now
building south from the Columbia
and the Oregon Trunk Line build
ing up the Deschutes river. Hither
of these lines could be extended
southward, joining the Ihitte-San
Francisco line at Klamath Falls or
Lakeview. Such r line would draw
freight Irom a vast area of agricul
tural and grazing lauds, would skirt
the great belt of timber on the east
slope ot the Cascades and would
get the bulk of the lumber traffic to
come from this great belt. It would
also give Hill a direct line of easy
(trades from San Francisco to Port-
laud. Bend lies in the direct path
of such a line ami it has beeu an
iiminem! that both the Oreffoti
Vrmik Line and The Dalles-Dufur
will be extended to Band.
The above is a brief summary of
the weeks news concerning Hills
movements in the railroad world.
Burlington Will Build to Coos Bay.
A prominent engineer of the Bur
liugtou road, another Hill line, has
told Coos Iky people that his road
is coming to Coos Hay and they
didn't care much who knew it. The
engineer said his road could reach
the ocean at Coos Hay from Chicago
by a route 490 miles shorter than one
to Sau Francisco.
The Burlington js rapidly build
ing west through Wyoming and is
now near the Idaho line, with their
survey running through Hoise City.
The route across Oregon is not yet
man, R. L-Kdwards, working over
this survey acquiring right of way
for the Natron extension. William
Hood, chief engineer of the Harri-
man lines, recently made the an
nouncement that construction work

Tum.uo, Oct. 3. Mr. Case, of
the Case saw mill at Sisters, was in
Tumnlo this week. Mr. Case had
the misfortune lately to get quite a
setback in his mill operations by
his steam boiler blowing up while
sawing. He had steam up to 120
pounds, when without a moments
warning, both cuds and a part of
one side of the boiler blew com
pletely out. Luckily no one was
hurt, but it was a close call for
some who were near the boiler
when the accident occurred. Mr.
Case will have to get a new boiler
as the old one is completely cut of
Dorrance Bros, came very near
losing their saw mill by fire last
week. Some of the mill hands
awoke about 4 a. 111. and saw fire
in the mill. They gave the alarm
aud got to the mill in time to save
it. The fire had started on the
mill floor aud had burned quite a
hole through it. In another half
hour nothing could have saved the
mill and large amount of lumber
which they had on hand.

LOSS FROM $8,000 TO $9,000

A. B. Schroder of Silver Lake
has found indications of gold some
where in the northeast of take
county, he will not tell where.
Recently he was in Lakeview and
exhibited a piece of ore that, when
assayed, went 52.06 in gold aud
Si. So in silver, to which was added
10 per cent, making a total of $4.24
to the ton. Mr. Schroder picked
up the rock on top of the ground
and the belief is that it was a piece
of float and possibly from a very
rich ledge. Parties are prospecting
for the ledge, and considerable of a
rush is expected as soon as Mr.
Schroder makes known the where
abouts of his fiud. Recent gold
discoveries around Lakeview have
set the minds of the residence of
the whole of Lake county on min
eral and probabilities of as rich min
eral deposits extending in the
northern part of the county as in
any other part will 110 doubt cause
a great deal of prospecting, with
the possible result of rich mines
being found in the Silver Lake

With the wind blowing a gale
last Tuesday, fire broke out iu the
Maling livery stable at Prineville,
at 1 1:30 o'clock in the morning and
for two hours the citizens of that
place put up oue of the hardest
fights of their lives to save the
town from a general and most dis
astrous conflagration. After two
hours of fighting the fire was con
quered after it had destroyed the
livery stable, the residence of Dr.
E. O. Hyde, the Methodist church,
and partly burned the residence of
Alex Zeverly. A conservative
estimate places the loss at from
$8,000 to $9,000. The cause of
the fire is unknown
The fire, fanned by a strong
wind from the south, was driven
from the stable across the street to
the Methodist church which it com
pletely destroyed. Dr. Hyde's res
idence also caught and was burned
with the entire contents. The
residence of Alex Zeverly was only
partially destroyed. The horses
and rigs were all gotten out of the
barn. The loss in the barn will
amount to about $1,500; on the
church, $2,500; on Dr. Hyde's res
idence, $2,000; and on the Zeverly
residence about $500. Other inci
dental damages will bring the total
loss close to $8,000 or $9,000.
Prineville people report that the
water service was very poor. The
pressure was very low aud it was
practically impossible to throw a
stream where it would do the most
good. The high wind carried
burning shingles and sparks for
many blocks and many residences
had uarrow escapes from catching
fire. It was a period of anxiety
and hard labor for property owuers.
There was $1,000 insurance on
the church, and $800 on Dr. Hyde's
residence, but none on the livery
stable. The church and Dr. Hyde's
residence will be rebuilt, but it is
said the proprietors of the stable
will not build.
(JATEWOOD MINES SOLD.
Consolidated with the Washington
Meteor Mining Co.
The Gatewood Mining & Trad
ing Company located at Howard,
Crook county, with which company
T. W. Zimmermauu is employed as
manager of their store, has beeu
taken over by the Washington
Meteor Mining Company, of
Blewett, Wash. The companies
are to be consolidated aud will in
the future be under oue manage
ment. Recently O. J. Hobson,
president and superintendent of tho
Meteor compauy, Claus Selz, di
rector and expert nccouutaut, and.
George K. Rogers, fiscal agent,
made a visit to the mine to make a
final examination of it. These men
are experts iu their different lines
and are connected in an official ca
pacity with the miues at Blewett.
All are very much pleased with
their mine at Howard. They be
lieve the mine to be a valuable one
that needs only modem methods
and scientific knowledge to be made
a good paying investment.
1 lie plant is to be enlarged aud
more meu put to work. An electric
light plant will be installed, hoist
ing work put iu and the mine
equipped with air compressor drills.
These changes will effect a great
saving in the expense account.
The gentlemen taking hold of the
Crook county property are rated
At by the commercial agencies
and come highly endorsed by banks
and business firms with whom they
nave beeu doing business.
