--What They Mean to Us
What will tho Strahorn lines mean
Two years ago Grants Pass was
on tho toboggan.
It was practically down and out,
and wiped oft tho map.
Situated on tho Southern Pacific,
lit had enjoyed a boom whon tho' (rult
Eland crazo was on about eight years
fago, but when this died down tho
Itown began to fall back. It had a
noderato business with tho Interior
(country, but roads woro bad (or a
largo part ot tho year and resources
West of tho city, howovor, was a
Jiuudrcd-mllo stretch of country,
Teaching to tho Pacific ocean. It
fe-vvas rich agriculturally, millions ot
fleet of timber waited tho saw, and
invaluable mineral deposits existed.
Rllut for lack of transportation, thp
country lay Idle
I) From tlmo to time tho projection
jof a railroad to tho coast which would
:tap this source of wealth wus con-
Etsidered and in 1910 n few miles of
Tight of way woro cleared loading
Ij-out of tho city. Then its promoters

Then Dr. J. V. Keddy camo for

TJIK ItOIIKNT BOUNTY IVW.
In lieu of tho Interest being taken
in the provisions of tho Crook county
rodent bounty law, now in force,
thero Is reprinted below the provis
ions of the net as fUeJ with the sec
retary of state and adopted by vote
-of Ihn people on November 7.
Tho Undent Bounty l,uv.
-He It Unacted by tile People of
tho County of Crook, State of Ore
gon "Section 1. That tho County
Court of Crook County, Oregon, be,
and it Is hereby empowered, author
ized and directed, to order paid from
the general fund croatod for that
jiurpo&e, the ium of five cents for
-nch Jack rabbit, and tho sum of two
and one hair cents for each sago rat
that may bo killed within the boun
daries of said county from and after
tho first day of Dccembmer, 1910.
"Section 2. It shall be the duty ot
said County Court at tljo regular
meeting thereof for the purposo of
levying taxes, to compute the esti
mated expenditure for the purpos
not overlooking tho fact that If It
had not havo been for the Keeler
Brothers there would not havo been
any promotion to it.
"Wo had, as you know, three elec
tion's, and all three of them were
practically failures. It do not think
It would hnvo been possible to have
hold the fourth, and It wo had, I
question very much whether or not
it would havo carried. Notwith
standing the fact that our elections
wcro a fizzle, you managed to find
a way to fix tho proposition up In
som.0 shapo, so we got tho money,
which v,as very satisfactory to this
"Not knowing whether or not, you
nro familiar with tho results of tho
Grants Pass bond Issue, I thought,
probably, n llttlo dopo along these
lines .would interest you. As you
know, this city was practically down
nnd out, and wlpod off tho map. Wo
had lost 2G per cent of our popula
tion; our bank deposits had depreci
ated GO per cent; business property
was not salable nt any price; mer
chants were alt hard up, a good many
of .them falling; things woro terrib
ly depressed and ovorybody looking
for bomo now community to move to.
After wo got your money, and start
ed doing tilings, tho result has been
that our town has grown about 1,000
In population; and business proporty
Is once more sutablo at normal prices;
bank deposits nro going up; mer
chants aro doing n good business;
hotels nro turning away pcoplo ov
ery night; wo nro shipping in auto
mobiles by tho carloads, nnd nro
building a $000,000 sugnr factory,
threo or four sawmills, nnd mines
that have been Idlo for years on ac
count ot lack of transportation nre"
now shipping ore nnd giving employ
ment to n largo number of minors,
teams und auto trucks. Kvorybody
Is feeling optimistic and this In It
self is a big asset to tho community,
Tnlto It all around, tho community
already has its $200,000 back. Tho
knockers hnvo disappeared and boost
ers nro working doublo shift.
"I think wo hnvo tho finest dem
onstration of what a community caft
do for itself In using tho city's credit
to nld In tho construction of rail
roads, In tho northwest. This city
could havo afforded to havo bonded
Itself for $1,000,000 to hnvo recolvod
tho results wo havo up to date.
Very truly yours,
J. K. IlKDDY."
