There are many rumors now
being circulated regarding the
probable route of the railroad
across this valley as well as its ap
proach from the east
It has al
ways been the general opinion
up Malheur canyon and through
Crane Creek gap was the only
feasible route, but it now develop*,
that there are other possibilities.
1» is claimed that a good pass is
afforded to the north on a vert
reasonable grade that has thr ad
vantage of keeping in easy reach
of limber and also >ie a more direc t
line with water and limber within
reach to the west ot Harney Val
ley as against the desert where the
former survey was made. An
other loutc has also been men
tioned in fact the assertion is
made by individuals writing from
Malheur county--that the road
will come out through (Barren
Valley, across to Barton lake,
then down the Blitzen and cross
to the north side of Harney lake
at Narrows and out through Sil
ver creek to the west. People
who are acquainted with the Bar
ren Valley section slate it is not
a feasible route and will certainly
not come that way. Some think
it possible that the new owner» of
the French-Glenn property have
offered imine enients to the rail
road people to take up that route

National Bank of thus city has
just returned from an extended
visit through the east and where
he was able to do good mission-
ary work for the Great Harney
country. While he biiugs no
definite plans of action he found
much attention given this big un

Without taking into considera
tion the guilt or innocence of the
late- Senator Mitchell the people
of this state must admit he was a
very useful man to Oregon and
that he accomplished much for
his constituents during his long
public life. His worst enemies
will admit this. He may have
had faults, but he also had many
good qualities that overshadow
any short comings.
Governor Chamberlain has ap
pointed John M. Gearin U. S.
Senator to succeed the late Sena
tor Mitchell, as predicted by the
article from the Journal on the
first page of this issue. The
new senator is a very popular
man and capable in every respect.
Judge L. R Webster, who has
been in this city the past week on
legal business made the assertion
to a representative of this Great
Religious that the governor could
make no belter «election from any
political party in Oregon. It is
asset ted by the Portland papers
that Judge Webster has his eye
