The purpose of this visit is to
learn what interior Oregon is not
from boomers or dreamers but by
personal inspection of disinterested
men trained in scientific agricul
ture. Prom the information thus
acquired they will be able not only
to peak with some authority of the
capabilities of the country but may
give advice as to treatment of the
soil and selection of crops for the

Oregon Trunk Well at Aletotus.
(Madras riontcr )
The big well of the Oregon Trunk
Railway company at Metolus, is now
down tt3 feet, 9 and 7-8 Inches. The
Plan is to put the hole down to the
second flow of water, it being thouuht
that the first vein will not furnish
enough for the needs of the company.
It is estimated that about twenty en
gines win take water from this station
every twenty-four hours, each locomo
tive taking about 9000 gallons. Thus It
will be easy to compute that the Oregon
Trunk wants a well with a capacity for
furnishinir 300,000 gallons per (lay.
