Representatives Hawley and

Chamberlain's letter. Both say,
however, they are as intensely
interested as any one in promot

continue to work along such line.
They say there are many occa

bonds for irrigation purposes?
Is it wrong to build county roads
and bridges?
The Oregonian knows none of
theso things are "a stop toward
Socialism," but a step in the
march of civilization, and the
further stop toward railway
building is simply a step forward
and not backward. Tho Dalles

That Oregon has large areas of
territory which are of no com
parative value that is as com
pared with what they would be
with transportation facilities is
a fact patent to all who have
looked into the question.
Hence it is a fact, that with
railways to these sections lliestate
would have a large increase in
taxable values, for it is true that
much of tho land now lying prac
tically waste is far better than
large areas in eastern Oregon
and eastern Washington now
producing large yields of cereals.
Our greatest undeveloped coun
try is, of course, in the Harney
country, by which wo mean that
vast section bounded on the south
by California, on tho west by
tho Cascades, on tho north by
tho Blue and other mountains

people of that section have been
clamoring for a railway, clamor
ing for relief. Had a road been
built through there nt the time
the roads wero built through
enstern Washington, tho Ilarnoy
country would now bo as wealthy
and as populous as tho Palouso
or Big Bend sections.
The peoplo of tho Ilarnoy
country want railways. Thoy
want them as soon as thoy can

builders who will give them a

Coos bay being tho most prac
tical terminus for tho good of tho
road and tho good of the people.
But if no railway builders ap
pear, the peoplo want to build
thoir own roads, and they want
permission to bond their lands
for this purpose.
