Every citizen of Burns should
put n shoulder to tho wheel and
help make tho Development Con
gress and celebration a success.
Lot each one do his part and wo
shall not bo found wanting in
any respect, Outsido delegates
should bo given a warm recep
tion ns they will all go out of tho
Harney country to do missionary
work and are coming to get bet
ter acquainted. They're all
boosters for us.
According to a Washington
press dispatch Secretary Hallin
ger has picked on R. II. Thom
son, a Seattle engineer, to suc
ceed F. H. Newell as head of tho
reclamation service. Tho secre
tary lias shown a disposition to
conduct the nfTairs of his depart
ment upon a business basis, there
fore it may be taken for granted
that Mr. Thompson is a good man
for the place.
Well, yes; we did have a back
ward spring with a lack of rain
fall, but things are improving in
tins respect and now crop pros
pects look brighter. Don't con
demn this country until you read
the news papers and see how
other sections are faring. We
do pretty well on an average,
PREPARATIONS FOR THE CONGRESS.
At a meeting of tho Commer
cial Club last Tuesday evening
plans were discussed for tho De
velopment Congress and various
heads of committees were given
an outline of what was expected.
Nothing definite was arrived at
II. C. Smith, C. F. McKinney,
Dr. Brown, Sam Mothorshead
and I. Schwartz were appointed
a committee to canvas the town
and see what rooms were avail
able in private houses for those
who may not secure rooms at the
A meeting of the executive
board, entertainment committee,
4th of July committee, etc., was
called last night- at A. W. Gow
an's office where further plans
were discussed. It seems only
Vice-President Rembold and Dr.
L. E. Hibbard were the only
members of the executive board
present, therefore other meetings
will be necessary for final arran
gements and a definite program.
It was decided to hold the con
gress in the Commercial Club
hall where seats will be provided.
The' matter of an open air meet
ing was considered not advisable
as tho weather may not permit
The club rooms on the first floor
will be headquarters for all dele
gates. It is the intention of the 4th of
July Committee to provide en
tertainment to a certain extent
and instead of a banquet the bar
becue dinner on the 3rd at the
fair grounds will be provided and
an especial invitation to visiting
dalegates will be extended to
this novel feed. The pavillion
will, be cleared and long tables
placed in there and spreads will
be prepared under the grand
stand in a similar manner.

According to newspaper re
ports tho business mon of Baker
City will tako a hand in tho ex
tension of tho Sumpter Va'ley
Railroad and now proposo lo
raise a $10,000 bonus which will
bo paid to tho road nH soon us
trains aro run into tho John Day
This is another step towaul
bringing tho Harney County near
er to tho outsido world and
should tho lino bo extended to
that point it would bo of consid
erable benefit to-this section. It
seems, however, that tho lino
will go by way of Susanville and
not ovor Huckleberry lint to
Prairie. In such an ovent it
would bo rather difficult to got
out and on over to this plueo as
it is understood Burns is tho ob
jective point to which tho road is
Of course tho writer knows
but little regarding tho physical
conditions and such a route may
bo feasible. Wo have always
hoped for an extension of this
road but have been more or loss
discouraged on account of the
roughness of tho country through
which it would havo to build, yet
it doesn't seem to bo any worse
than tho difficulties already over
come by tho lino in building ns
far up as Austin.
According to a report in tho
Canyon City Eagle $5000 of tho
amount has been raised on tho
proposed bonus. Tho following
from the Baker City Democrat
gives some informatien:
Mr. David Ecclos, president of
the Sumpter Valley Railroad, ar
rived in Baker City yesterday.
In tho afternoon ho had a con
ference with a number of Baker
City business men and they were
given to understand that if the
Sumpter Valley wo3 to bo ox
tended to John Day, then it was
necessary for Baker City to como
forward with a subsidy of
Last evening another confer
ence was held, Mr. Grant Geddos
acting ns Mr. Eccles' representa
tive at which meeting about a
dozen business men were pres
ent, Mr. F. II. Dean acting as
Mr. Geddes repeated the abovo
statement regarding tho subsidy
Baker City was expected to raise
and said that was Mr. Eccles' ul
timatum. He further said that
John Day had pledged $20,000
and the Oregon Land Company,
owning tho Dalles Military road,
had pledged $10,000, these being
contingent upon Baker City pled
He said further that if this
monoy was raised and it must
be in a few days if at all work
would commence at once on the
extension and the road completed
to Prairie City by Thanksgiving
day. Until tho road is completed
to John Day, which will not bo
likely beforo next year, no money
is to be paid.
In the foregoing tho Democrat
gives the matter of thoS. V. Ry,.
extension just ns Mr. Geddes pre
sented it. It will bo seen that
Mr. Eccles is not quibbling. Un
less Baker City puts up $10,000
as a bonus, subsidy, or whatever
it is called, there will be no ex
tension of the Sumpter Valley
It its up to tho Baker City peo
ple squarely and fairly and action
must be taken at once. However,
much bonuses aro cspised; hero is
a condition and not a theory that
presents itself to oar people and
one that must not bo overlooked
in the face of the vast benefit
that will accrue to tho commer
cial interests of Baker City.
Burns, Harney county, has
pledged to throw its trado by tho
signature of every business man
to Baker City in case tho roilroad
extension is mado and that the
whole of that Interior country
will bo turned this way is assured.
A failure to meet tho demand
mado upon it will place Baker
Uity in a very .embarrassing po-i
sition, financially and otherwise, 1
and our people cannot afford to
fluke at this critical period. And
let it bo undorstood, every prop
erty owner-in' tho city will bo ex
pected to put up his sharo in tho
raising of tho amount of mdney
asked from Baker City, Busi
ness men, those who mako prop
erty remunerative by paying high
rents for tho privilege of doing
business, ought not to bo expec
ted to carry nil the burden.
Once again, it is up to tho peo
ple of Baker City to put up
$10,000 or tho S. V. Ry. exten
sion will not bo built. Get in,
drill und don't grumble. It is
tho inevitable, Bo masters of
tho situation. Democrat.
