A GOOD INVESTMENT.
In another column is a clipping
torn the Madras Pioneer in which
1 lie editor of that paper states that
, he purchase of stock in the Central
Jrcgou Railroad Company will be
I , rood investment, and that the
I roposed extension of the Columbia
kmthem will be one of the best
lungs, from a busiucss.standpoint,
,,ffith which this county has ever
1 cn' 'blessed. And the Pioneer
1 peaLs the truth.
U Peoplei who have come into this
, cctioa ,the state and settled on
lonicstcads and irrigated land have
1 ' .one so with the expectation that
vithin a reasonable time a railroad
I could be built into Crook count
iid their lands would increase in
alue, as is always the case in new
' ' ountries when railroad transporta
ion is provided. The settlers ex
ect to reap the harvest that will
ome with the increase of land val
es. Nothing cks would have in-
uced them to leave comfortable
jj omes in older settled sections and
aovc'Iutoi ricvr country so far re
I loved from'il rdilroad. The suc-
' essful building of the Central Ore-
on railroad will provide the long
rished for transportation, and the
icrease in land values will follow.
I lenec, every man who owns an
ere of land or other property in
;rooI: county will be directly bene-
.tted by the coming of ibis railroad.
i Je can well afford to Subscribe for
Arentral Oregon stock 1 for the in-
'-rcasc in the market alue of his
Imcs over for the money or labor
1 je may expend for railroad stock.
i j Another feature that should not
t e overlooked is the result a railroad
hrough this section would have on
he cost of marketing a crop. The
'loneer says it would make a sav-
ig of 15 cents a bushel on every
jsllel of grain marketed from that
ctScn. On 1,000,000 bushels that
ould tnean a saving to the farm-
rs of $150,000. And the Madras
sctidu produced more thun that
mount last year. In a few years
iter the railroad is in operation the
leld of grain throughout the Mad-
as country will be doubled and
febblctt. This same argument
' pplsts with equal force to the
hole of Central Oregon, and every
,, inner who has a ton of produce to
, ell and every merchant who ships
i goods will reap a substantial
j rofit from reduced freight rates,
ad still more, by the ability to
larket a crop after Jt is harvested.
(J Hence, the investment of money
Ji Central Oregon stock would be a
'jood thing even though the stock
ihould remain worthless, provided
pilroad transportation is furnished.
ui mc siock win not ue woriuiesa.
11 the contrary, the road will, earn
mq very good profit on the money in
vested. Men who are acquainted
itla the cost of operating railroads
ave figured the cost of operating
e Central Oregon on the same
asis as is novv expended in operat-
' jg the CoJurabia, Southern, which
j au excessive figure. Even taking
413 excessive cost of operation, the
, fentral Oregon should earn a good
ZOilC Xt 13 coniiucnuy cxycticu
y the men behind the C. O. that
j stock will easily earn a fair per
nt on its par value.
The promotion of the Central
regon is a business proposition
oni A to Z. It js proposed to so
an the undertaking that it will
bmmand the respect of thoughtful
business men, and consequently
their support. That is being done
and everything indicates that the
people will give the undertaking
their hearty support.
A matter that should receive the
prompt attention of the game ward
ens is the "fish trap" at Pringle
falls on the upper Deschutes
There Nature has formed a pocket
or pool in such a mauuer that man,
with a few minutes labor, can make
a trap that works Jo perfection.
And hundreds of handsome Dolly
Yardens arc taken oat of this trap
by zealous fishermen each season.
To be sure it makes great sport,
but at the same time it is too great
a drain on the supply of fish and, if
the trap remains unmolested, it is
only a question of time ami a
short time at that until Dolly Yar
dens will be scarce indeed in the
upper Deschutes. The method by
which they are caught in the trap
smacks more of butchery than of
sport, and all true sportsmen should
unite in insisting that the trap be
destroyed. The only way to make
that destruction effective is to blow
out with powder the formation of
the rocks that makes the trap pos
sible. The first number of the Malheur
Booster has reached our exchange
tabic and is evidently a vicorous
youngster. It is to be a monthly
publication, is edited and published
by Hurley & 'Hurley, proprietors
of the Yale Oriano: and, as its
name implied, is 'dedicated to the
boosting of Eastern 'Oregon. The
first number speaks, well for its
future. . ," .
COMMENT BY OTHER PAPERS
A Oood Investment.
As a business venture the exten
sion of the Columbia Southern Rail
road into Crook county is the best
investment that the business men
and residents of the county could
make. Bringing it home as au in
dividual matter to each of the resi
dents of this section of the county
who will be asked to subscribe for
stock, no better or more profitable
investment could be made. Not
only will it provide an immediate
market for all our crop, but will do
so at a saving of not less than 15
cents per bushel on grain and on all
other products in proportion. Not
only will the amount of the sub
scription be returned to us in the
saving on transportation charges,
but the stock itself is a good invest
ment. It is simply a case of "eat
ing our cake and having it, too,"
Ministers Receive Liquor Price Lists.
The saloons of Prineville closed
their doors promptly at 12 o'clock
Tuesday .night and(this city is now
dry as the strongest prohibitionist
could wish for, There was little
intoxication and no disorderly con
duct or arrests, . Much wine, beer
and liquor wa? purchased on the
last day, all to be cached away and
ultimately used for medicinal pur
poses. An amusing feature of the
day was the reccjpt by every family
and man in town of the catalogue
of a Portland liquor house, which
evidently is the first to make a bid
for the Crook county trade. The
ministers even were not spared, and
they smile in manifest appreciation
of the joke.
Will Build Tielr Own Railroad.
The people up at Bend and Prine
ville, driven to desperation by the
dilatory methods of existing lines,
have decided, with the aid of Port
land capital, to build their own rail
road. The experiment will be
watched with interest by isolated
sections, wherethe people have long
suiTered the inconvenience of loco
motion by stage, and transportation
of their product? by (he time h'ou
ored wagon and team,. ,, The day
has about came whea'.'tlic people
are in a position to go down 111 their
own pockets and help, themselves
out of the dilemma. Railroads we
must have and if the big companies
won't build them" it will be to their
own loss. Only that a (ey psivate
individuals with very fttflq capital
began surveying and securing right-of-way
between" Here and Arlington
Gilliam county would still be with
out a railroad. It was the same
way over in Sherman county, and
no doubt when Mr. Harriman sees
the people of Crook county arc in
earnest it will dawn on him that he
wants the line himself in the worst
kind of way.
Let Republican Wake Up.
Now that William II. Taft has
been nominated for hc presidency,
and the allies and factious, even
Senator Porakcr, announce them
selves his supporters, one very seri
ous question is settled. A nomina
tion, however, does not mean an
election, and it is very probable
that Taft will want every vote he
can get to put him in the presiden
tial chair for the uext four years
following the 4th of March, 1909.
Mr. Taft is pledged, both by pref
erence and promise to maintain, to
the extent of his ability, the Roose
velt regime, but he has not got the
Roosevelt popularity and while it is
believed that his administration will
have more placidity, and not 1cjs
force than that of the present presi
dent, there arc many who will not
eive this fact the consideration it
calls for. IfTaftisto be elected,
he must get the support of the re
publican party in no milk and water
fashion, enough to overcome the
pernicious belief in change, which
will probably land us where we
were in 1893. Indications point to
another panic, and a change of ad
ministration just now is about sure
to bring it on. There arc more bat
tles lost politically, as well as oth
erwise, by underestimating the
strength of the opposing party, and
it is to be hoped that republicans
will throw off the cloak of apathy,
wake up, and elect Mr. Taft, who
if he is not Roosevelt, is a roan of
the si me stripe at all events.
