A lengthy article in the last is

a graphic description of the coun
try and experiences of one com

try by tho wny of Austin. In
closing tho article says:
Hours before Burns is reached

to view and looking over the lev

dinner at Burns.
Burns is the future Spokane
of Oregon. She is the capital
city of an empire and her poten
tial resources are as great as
some of the lesser empires of
the world. The valley over
which she is mistress lias an
extent of nearly a hundred
miles and somo of it as rich as a
florists' hot house. The Blue Mt
Rapid Transit Stage Line operat
ed by L. Woldenberg, furnishes
as good a service as can bo ex
pected and uncomplainingly the
people can look to this well-equip
ped mode of transportation in
I the future as they havo in the
past, but it is not the people of
this prosperous section, who are
alone concerned. Portland needs
the great Harney valley, the rest
of the state needs it. But the
great wealth of this county and
the wealth which it is possible to
produce can never be hauled out
on a stage nor developed when
this is the only means of trans
portation. Some llarrimnn or

Formal acceptance of tho Des

as proposed by J. P. O'Brien,
general manager of tho 0. R. &
N., has been made by Mr. llar
rimnn, according to a telegram
sent Mr. O'Brien yesterday after
noon, says the Journal. Whilo
this does not change tho faco of
tho Central Oregon situation
materially, it places Iho stamp
of tho llarrimnn approval on the
Deschutes lines and authorizes
tho commencement of work ns
soon as tho right of way is per
fected. Mr. Cotton, who nnnounced at
tho chamber of commerco meet
ing last week that he had been
unsuccessfully striving for some
timo to got tho maps of tho Des
chutes lino npproved by tho sec
retary of tho interior in Wash

Up to yesterday tho llarrimnn
officials in Oregon havo been

mondation of acceptance, there
was no certainty which, if any,
of the lines would bo built. Al
though Mr. Cotton spoke last
week as though tho acceptance
of tho maps was all that was
holdmg back the construction of
the. line, it had not actually been
determined that the lino would
bo constructed at all. Now the
Oregon officials have the assur
ance that tho Deschutes line can
bo built ns soon as they .fix up
their right of way troubles.
"Wo aro willing to pay a rea
sonable market price for the land
we need," said Mr. O'Brien this
morning, "but wcaro not willing

Whether tho knowledge that if
they do get their right of way
they can go ahead with the work
of building the road will make
any difference with tho work of
the legal department in securing
recognition of the Deschutes
Railway company's maps can
only be conjectured. It is the
opinion of Portland business men,
however, that the announcement
made by Mr. O'Brien this morn
ing should not bo allowed in any
way to affect the action of the
state legislature on the constitu
tional amendment allowing the
state to build or aid in the build
ing of railroads and the passage
of the highway commission bill,
which have been proposed to
safeguard the interests of the
state in the future.
Not Enough Money In the U. S.
To do a Strictly Cash Business.
There aro over twenty thousand banks in the United States.
In these banks there is on deposit eleven dollars for every single
dollar of real money gold, silver and paper.
Business is carried on by the aid of the banks as could be done
in no other way. Ninety per cent, of the business is done without
handling n single dollar of real money, but with checks, drafts,
notes and other formB of credit.
A man deposits $100 to open a check account. Ho may issue
any number of checks to total that $100, to any number of persons.
Suppose one man receives his check for $25, ho brings thai check
to the bank and deposiles the amount lo his credit. Ho too may
issue a check lo another party for that $25. In not ono transaction
does any parly handle or sec a dollar of roa money."
The bank has made this system possible.
This bank renders a service to the people that is convenient to
business and safe for all parties. Our methods aro the choice of
approved and accurate tests taken from banking experience.
Our service will be a distinct advantage to your business, just
as it is to our present customers.
