WILL HI: STRONG CAN'OIDATR
Urged by the Voters of Western arid
Northern Crunk Coonty, lie PI
nally Consents In Hun,
This week Dr U C Coe of Bend
announce hinihelf n candidate for
the ft publican nominal! 11 to the or
ficc ol joint reprei-emnthf from the
Twenty-first Legislative District
Dr Coe lincl no dcsir'e to teconic n
candidate for1 the office but there
were 11 large number of votes in
western and northern Crook county
who insisted that he allow them to
picscut lint nnnie to the voters
After much Insistent urging, he
finally consented to their desire
nnd will go before the H-oplc as a
candidate for the republican 110m
unit ion of joint representative
The Twenty-first district is com-poM.-d
of the counties of Klamath,
Lake, Crook and Grant, nnd is en
litlrd to two representatives and
There ii a tendency during the
present campaign to divide , the
Jiolitical honors anions the four
counties. Klamath lias asked that
it he Riven the senntorship, and it
apc.HM that its request will be
granted At ' least there arc no
candidates in the field for the republi
can nomination to that office except
Klamath men. Lake county claims
one representative nnd is pushing
a strong nnd ublc man tor the office,
II A. Ilrattain of Paisley. The
Klamath and Lake county papers
agree that cither Crook or Grant
should be allowed to name the
other rcprcsctilartvc. For the past
four years Grant has enjoyed the
office of state senator in the person
of J A. I.nveock. Hence Crook
county feels that it is justly entitled
to a representative, and presents
the namenf Dr. Coe. That Dr
Coe will Jrove a strong candidate
before the voters is a foregone coil-
elusion. If nomlnatcu ana elected
to the legislature he will make the
Twenty-first district one of the very
strongest representatives it has ever
had at Salem He is a young and
ctictgctic raau, a practicing physi
cian and possesses in a marked de
gree the qualities needed by one
who is chosen to represent the peo
ple in the state assembly halls. At
the present writing he and Mr.
Ilrattain arc the only republicans
who aspire to the office of repre
sentative, and as the district is en
titled to two these mcu have no op
position. The three Klamath men who
want to be senator arc George II.
Mcrrymau, II. L Ilolgate nnd L.
F. Willits. G. Springer of Culver,
Crook county, is seeking the demo
cratic nomination for state senator.
There arc n number of candidates
in the county field who arc anxious
to serve the people. The primaries
will decide largely who are to be
the lucky ones; the others will have
to take the disappointment that al
ways comes to many who aspire to

ECCLES WILL BUILD
Extend Hood River Road
into Central Oregon.
WOULD TAP RICH COUNTRY
Reported that Salt Lake City Multi
Millionaire Will Push Line Into
This Section of Oregon.
An entirely new story regarding
a railroad for Central Oregon has
appeared, and a storv which carries
considerable probability with it. It
is now said it is very probable that
the Mount Hood 'railroad, extend
ing from the town of Uood River
up Hood River valley to Dee, will
be extended into Central Oregon to
connect with an extension of the
Sumptcr Valley railroad which will
be built southwestward from its
present terminus at Tipton.
The route of these extensions as
outlined in the press dispatches
will be from Hood River southward
along the cast side of Mt. Uood,
through T.gh Valley to the
Deschutes river, on to Madras,
from Madras to Crooked River,
and up that stream to Prineville
The Sumpcr Valley, coming west
ward, will be built through Canon
City to Prineville.
The man behind this undertak
ing is David Ecclcs, the multi-millionaire
sugar manufacturer of Salt
Lake City. He is the present
owner of both the Hood River and
the Sumpter Valley railroads. He
nlo owns and operates large saw
mills along these two lines. The
building of the proposed new line
would open up to transportation
large tracts of timber land and also
thousands of acres of fertile farming
land in Central Qrccon.
A surveying crew Is now at work
running a line from Dee southward
around the base of Mt. Uood, and
a construction ganc is extending
the Mt. Uood line from Dee six
miles farther uptbe valley W. II
Ecclcs, president of the Mt: Uood
road, admits that this extension
may form a link in the proposed'
If this line is built it will put
a railroad right at the doorway of
the Bend country, and would leave
Bend only about 30 miles distant
from the road. It is safe to predfet
that with a railroad that close cap
italists interested In Bend and
vicinity would soon build an elec
tric line to connect with the steam
