floutd Will llulld Line through Tills
Section to Portland,
lvicli week brings interesting
development:! lit railtond news. Tiie
latest is the announcement by
IMwm Gould, "jiathfindor for the
ocean to ocean railroad" ambition
of his brother, George, that the
Gould Hue." would be built not
ouh to San Francisco but alio to
Portland. lfor 11 year or more it
has been believed that the Goulds
were behind the little line running
from Keno to Likely and known its
the California, Nevada ci Oregon
This line is being steadily pushed
lor ward to Lakevicw, mid the gen
crul belief is that Gould will enter
Oregon at Lakevicw and cross the
Mate northward to Portland. Thnt
would bring his line directly through
tills section and would insure trans
portation for llcml and the llcud
The fact that Hurrlmau officials
have suddenly announced their de
termination to build into Lakevicw
at once would lend strength to the
thedry that Gould would enter
Oregou at that place. It will un
doubtedly be a race between the
two systems to sec who can occupy
that territory first. The Portland
Journal sizes up the situation ns
Announcement from a member
of the Gotild family that the West-
" ' T
eru Pacific Knllroml company will
hulld into Portland, Oregon, was
received today by The Journal from
Han Francisco. The news is taken
to mean (hat the railroad from
Reno to Likely, known as the
California, Nevada & Oregon, long
regarded n a Gould line atld now
under construction toward Lake
view, Oregon, will be extended by
some 'convenient route Into the
Willamette valley and Portland.
lvvcr since the Western' Pacific
was projected to the Pacific Const
It has been believed that tlic Gould
twoplc must do more than merely
trip San Francisco to justify the
construction of so large a mileage
through the numerous mountain
ranges between Salt Lake mid the
California const. The road bad
unniiy oceu commenced wueii tin
little lino running from Keno to
Madeline, with a survey to Lake
view, changed hands under cir
cumstances that stamped the trans
fer ns a Gould purchase.
I'.vcr since that time it lias been
exacted thnt the Western Pacific
would break into Oregon. The
news that It lius determined to do
so was. anticipated a few days ngo
by the Hnrriman lines, which have
included Lake county (u their
scheme of railroad development in
eastern and southern Oregon A
week ago the chief official of the
Southern Pacific IncorpaVated a
company to build n line Trom An
derson via the cast shore of Goose
lake to central Oregou. Yesterday
Oregon officials of the Ifarrinun
lines lucorinrated another company
nt Salem, to build a short stretch of
road between Lakevicw ' nnd the
California line. These develop
ments have come in succession with
startling suddenness, and in the
nature of bolts out 01 n clear sky
The public had no expectation ol
such serious moves on the railroad
checkerboard in Oregon and north
The reason now Ixrcomcs plain
1'he decision of the Western Pacific
to immediately begin construction
cf its Oregon extension was no
sooner made than the Hnrriman in-
icrcsts became advised of it and
quick action was tieccssiry to get
trategic ndvnntne.es. 1 he ouiclals
of the lfnrrimaii lines have lo-t no
time. It is said the result means
another railroad building contest'
like the north bank race, nnd the
Litest contest is for transportation
control of Lake' county and the
Pleasant Ridge Items.

A BUNDLE OF LIES
Slntldcr Are Being Spread
AboVt H. C Kills.
TACTICS OP TIIH OPPOSITION
Uslne Desperate nnd DlrtiMclhodsto
Defeat Mr. IIIH Voter Should
Kot tlo fooled Thereby,
News lias reached llcud within
the last few dn vs that most malicious
and slanderous lies are being told
over the coiiuty ngniust II. C. Kills.
These storiesjirc absolutely without
louminiioti nun are merely tiie iat
ricntions of a mind so low and des
picable that it will Mop at nothing
to accomplish its ends Of course
the object in view Is to discedit
Mr. I'.llis before the voters, hoping
thereby to defeat him iu the race
for county judge. The man or men
who are responsible for the spread
ing of these reports know they can
not defeat II C. Hills, iu n clean
and fair contest, so they stoop to the
ilirtv work or tpreadlng slanders
How do the voters like suJi tac
tics as these? Atld what do they
think of n clique Hint carries on u
campaign by such methods? Do
ttiev want to elect to county office
men whose stock in tra Ic consists
in the ability to get out ut'd spread
damaging and scurrilous lies about
the man whom they wish to defeat?
The Uitltctiti is certain that Crook
county votors will stand (or no such
tactics as the opponents of Mr. Ullis
urc using, and to show their disap
proval will give Mr. Kills the larg
est vote ever cast in the count v.
Iu view of the fact that such
stories are being- circulated, The
Bulletin would warn people against
paying any attention tojlieut what
ever. Tliey are absolutely grounu-
less and malicious. There arc only
a few days remaining before elec
tion and the 'men who seek Mr.
Kllis defeat will put forth their
most strenuous efforts during that
time. Hence The liitllctiu again
urges that 110 credit lw given to any
of these slanderous reports. Mr.
Kills' recprd is open to the world.
There is nothing in it that needs to
(liven I'roper .Medicine.
Heie's a story that's too good to
keep. One of the men who arc re
sponsible for the above slanders
.started his low stories against Mr.
Kllis iu a saloon at Madras. At
first those present gave him the
"horse laugh" but finally, upon
his persisting in such talk, six 'r
eight of them took after him and
ran him out of the saloon. He
skidoocd like n scared rabbit and
took refuge in the hotel. Later
after the Madras men had had time
to think it over and get real mad,
they started to the hotel after the
fellow but he made a rapid "get
away" nnd sneuked out of town.
That's good work. Such a man
should be run out of every town
that he visits.
