man out in the electric-lighted
wilds of Klamath county.
Governor Doubtful.
Governor Chamberlain says that
white at any time he would le most
pleased to accept an invitation to
visit Mr. Ilarrimau ut his camp 011
Pelican Hay, yet just at this time
the business of his office would pre
Vent his acceptance unless it were
that he considered his trip would
give him an opportunity to attempt
to neciiie good results for the peo
ple of the state, particularly of those
transpoitatioulcss residents of the
central portion of the state.
"I expect to discuss the con
struction of the Central Oregon
road aud of the Crater J.akc road
vith Mr. Ilarrimau," the governor
said this mottling. "Other than
that, I do not know what will be
the subject of conversation, and of
totirse I do i6 know what will Ix?
the result of the trip. I expect it
' iWiiiitMiirtininiM'i n 1'
will take me about seven days to
go there and return."
Although none of the parties to
the trip will discuss their journey
and its object, it is 'considered that
there is much significance in the
fact that Mr. .Ilarrimau has sent
for the three men ut this time. It
is known that General Manager
O'llrieu believes in the construction
of a Central Oregon road aud in the
oH.'iiIug of the interior of the state
to railroad transportation. It Is the
general impression that if left to his
own initiative Mr. O'llrieu would
put a railroad into the interior in
short order.
Mr. Stanley is the vice-president
of the Deschutes Irrigation S: Power
company, which coloration now
lias some 300,000 acres under water
near ISeud. Railroad transportation
is vital, therefore, to the full de
velopment of his property. At the
present time Mr. Stanley is also the
proiuntcr of a luie of road extend
ing from Ilcnd to Madras and 011
thiough the Cascades to Portland
by way of Cazadeto. "The survey

Railroad Other Note.
Harney county has met with . a
misfortune that will re-act to the
benefit of the farmers of Crook
county. The wlicuc crop in liar
uey has been burned up diiriut: the
past two or three weeks, ami Hnr
ney county tK-ople are already Ik
ginning to haul wheat from Priue
villc. The Review says:
"A freighting outfit is now on
the way to Priuevillc from Hums to
buy aud trausort 3.000 sacks of
Crook county wheat to Harney
county, the wheat crop of which is
this year teporled to be a total fail
ure, having burned to a frazzl in
the last two weeks. This wheat
will be taken from the Prineville
Flouring Mills Coinwuy's supply,
and later the Agency Plains will he
tapped. While Harney county de
serves sympathy, this county will
not lie the loser by the disaster to
its neighbor."
(tunning a New Line.
The surveyors of the Central Or
egon railroad moved their camp to
Culver the first of the week, am'
are running a line southwest
from Madras, through the Opal
Prairie country, to a crossiim on
Crooked river about Trail Crossing.
This survey is being run to see
what kind of a line could be secured
by that route.
When this work i- completed,
which will probably 1 bv the first
of next week, the surveyor will re
turn to Madras and from here it is
expected that the survey will go on
to Shauiko, following the old
.HA rwrss Tins .
Columbia Southern survey There
has been some discussion of a line
down I ml Inn creek and through
Anl'dope, and a survev of that
route may be made The chief ob
jection is the additional mileage, as
it would increase the length ot the
road several miles. It is believed,
however, that a good grade could
be secured by that route, and some
of the heavy work avoided which
the Ward's creek route would make
necessary. Pioneer

It matters very little how favor

One of the great surprises to
educators from the Atlantic coast
wot. tliat the general school ex
hibits ut the fairs at Chicago, St.
Louis aud Portland from the thinly
settled states of the West greatly
surpassed those from their own, but
thoo of us who sec the carefully
selected school sites, the well vetiti
lated and splendidly furnished
school buildings throughout the.
West are not surprised m the least
when we remember the stuffy little
and poorly furnished school rooms
imiiiiiuiuUmun l jiLaj.jtig
into which we used to be crowded
on the Atlantic coast. Nor are wi
surprised when considering the dif
ference in school management, for
farmers on the Atlantic coast can
barely make .1 living on their land
their property continually depre
ciatcs and their sous and daughter
are attracted by the allurements o,
city life, while throughout the Pa
cific states men of all profession
are attracted to the farm from which
enormous profits spring and lands
that were waste a few years ago arr
now worth lu some localities from
$t,ooo to Si, 500 per acre.
The school patrons being com
posed of the school voters their
willingness to supply and maintain
a good school can only be surmised
from the past.

we learned that with only three or

Report from Fire Southeast of Bend
States that Not Much Damage Was
Done to Mature Timber.
A note received by The Bulletin
from the scene of the forest fire
southeast of Bend says that on Aug
ust 19 the fire was burning in sec
lions 1, ii, 30 and 31, township 21,
range 15; sections 34, 35 and y,
townships 21, range 14; and sec
tions 1 and 12, township 22, rangr.
14. The latter numbers arc rather
badly burned especially where any
of the land runs to a buttc, other
wise the other matured timber Ir
not hurt much, but it has damaged
considerably a goodly portion of the
young growth. The fire fighter
arc now masters of the situation.
