It appears that Secretary Mnllln

survey maps arc about to be trans
fcrred from the laud pflice to the
secretary of the Interior, and, says
the Telegram, Uallingcr "having
established a precedent in approv.
lug maps for the lower 40 mile will
without doubt approve the balance
of the line."
Now that both projects have the
necessary rights of way up the
Deschutes, it appears that the liar
rlinan people will go on the war
path after the Oregon Trunk. In
stead of fighting out the conflicting
claims of right of way with his pos.
siblc rival, it seems that the " Wiz
ard" will attack the legality of the
Oregon Trunk's Incorporation,
maintaining that It cannot operate
in this statu. Whether or not this
new move has anything definite be
hind it remains to be seen.
Others Must Hulld Road.
Ill a recent address in Portland,
James J. Hill utitiouuccd that Cen
tra) Oregon must look elsewhere
than to him for transportation re
lief. Although expressing the very
positive belief that the resources of
this country already more than jus
tified the building of a road, and
that one must ncedily enter the
lung neglected field, Mr. Hill said
that for the present, at least, the
thorough development of the Great
Northern territory demauded his
Klamath Palls Railroad Activities.
R. M. Curnahau, recently of
Bend, has sent us news of interest
concerning the railroad activities In
the southern part of the state.
The road Is being actively pushed
northward front Klamath l'nlls,
says Mr. Cnruahati, the grade work
and preliminary clearing being
completed for several miles, and
grade stakes set out by recent sur
veys reach as far as Heaver Marsh.
Whether or not the construction
force now engaged in the neighbor
hood of the city will be retained,

The opinion of the southern bus-'
iucss men and contractors seems to
he that the road will undoubtedly
be pushed through directly toOdell
lake, and thence actoss the moun
tains to Natron, thus establishing a
Sau Francisco-Portland main liueoi
far belter grade than the present
one overtthc Siskiyous. An ludi'
cation of the permanent character
of the work already completed is
the fact that go-pound rails have
been tihvd, far heavier than arc cm-

Coos Hay Hopeful.
The proposition made by Freder
ick A, Halnch to the Oregon itc Id
aho Railroad Company to survey
11 ml build n road from Coos Hay to
the vicinity of Koscburg, has been
accepted by the company, which is
financed entirely by local capital.
The initial cost of surveying falls
upon the Coos Day cople, this to
be returned when Mr. Haines'
backers take over the proposition.
, Haines was formerly locating en
gineer for the Chicago & North

the road will be extended across
Central Oregon to Nyssa, there con

an Annual livent.
Whcthcror not "Dutch John"
turned in his grave when be heard
the sounds of merry-making on the
grounds of his old home, the pic
ulcers themselves all .had a royal
good time last Sunday. The hosts
of the day were the members of the
Hend baud, and the entertainment
they accorded their 175 guests was
in every way the entire success an
ticipated. During the morning the teams
gathered on the flat by the old log
house in such numbers that the us
ually deserted place took on the ap
pearance of a county fair in full
swing. After all had arrival, and
the band members were busy with
the preparations for the feast, the
guests scattered along the river
banks filling their creels with trout.
Then came the barbecue, trout
without number, cooked to perfec
tion by those past masters of the
art, "Dad" West and Tom Triplett,
and carried by assistants to the
groups scattered far and wide
under the trees.
"Two glasses fora nicklc each."
While the trout were making their
final disappearance, Harney Lewis,
Professor of Lemonade Making, ex
tracted the nicklcs from the pock
ets of all within car allot in ex
change for his concoctions, "the
best on earth," he guarauteed,
though he never "made final proof"
by imbibing himself.
Then Dr. Mitchell conducted a
brief open air service, which was
preceded and followed by selections
played by the band, all greatly en
joyed. And when the day came to
an cud, as even good things must,
it was unanimously voted that the
baud had done itself proud.
The following were the hosts of
the day: H. C. Throne, C. M
Triplet!, Ray Wilkinson, Hlmer
Cast, C. C. Triplett, P. K. l.ynes,
Fred Triplett, Howard Spluing,
John I.iustcr, C. I). Brown, B.
