A MESSAGE TO GARCIA.
Hair (ho Silver Lake Losdor: "It
will b Him fniit'nr now of only n few
weeks when M. Utrnh'jrrj will be tell
ing us wliHt lie wuiitH, mill that vvb It'll
he wants Is Ills at ntiy tlnu."
k. Ifow lp that for tlio proper spirit?
And remember, It echoes the sen
timent of ull Central Oregon. The
interior Is united. It jnsnns busl
nesH. It Is ready, and willing find
.-waiting. A great big country bigger
than Massachusetts Is pulling to
getfiorV J'""' JcBlounlen are wiped
out. Community dlfforencos arc for-
gotton. That which "leagues and
efforts from within and from without
could not tlo 1im hviiW done. Anil It
Is tho accomplishment of a nlnglo
lian and a, single Idea.
' Thft ninn lii Unherl E. Strnlioril
His Idea Is tho Centrnl Oregon rail
road system, linking hp the loose
ends of rail transportation In our
half BOrvod territory.
Mr. Strnhorn Is "putting It over."
It Is a fair guess that no other man
living could do It could do It, at
least, In the way he Is doing It. Ho
Jins won the confidence of Central
Oregon. He has the country's united
backing. And It Is not Just paper
promises ho Is receiving; the right
of way, tho terminals mid tho sup
port ho expected nro his.
Robert K. Strnhorn hni carried n
iiussago to Garcln. If that statement
doesn't convoy to you n full measure
of mcnnlng. read what Elbert Hub
bard wrote about that other messngo,
back In 1898:
"When war broko out between
Spain nnd tho Un.teil Statee, It wns
very necessary to communlcato quick
ly with tho leader of tho Insurgents.
Garcia was somewhere In tho moun
tain fastness of Culm no olio know
whore. No mall or telogrnph mes
xago could reach him. Tho president
must sccuro his co-operation, and
"What to do!
"Soma ono said to tho President,
'Thero Is a fellow by the name of
Jtownn who will llnd Garcia for you,
If anybody can.'
"Rownn wns sent for nnd given n
letter to bo deliverod to littrcln.
"The follow by tho iiiiinu of Rownn
tok tho letter, senled Is up In nn
oll-sklu pouch stropped It over his
heart, In lour days luniloil by night
off the const of Culm from nn open
boat, disappeared In tho Jungle, nnd
In three weeks enmo out on tho oth
er sldo of thii Island, having travers
ed a hostile country nn foot and do
Jlvered his letter to Gnrcln."
Of courso all that Is moro pictur
esque and spectcular than wo nro wit
nesslng today. This Is n matter of
business, minus heiolcs. Hut It takes
tlio samu kind of n man as delivered
the niessago to Garcia to deliver such
n niessago as Strahoru Is delivering
1o Oregon and to get It over as ho
