"I left a number of ranchors around Madras busy counting up their wealth, "snid an Agency Plnins farmer, who arrived in Prineville last Sunday evening, The Harrimnn ngent has been thero tho past few days buying right of way, paying cash for what he got and not wasting any lime dickering with Iho Innd holders, either.

The Klamath Falls Evening Herald prints the follewing: There is n growing sentiment in Eastern Oregon in fnvor of seceding from tlio western por tion of the State and forming a new State. The seed was sown somo time ago and well sprouted. It is being industriously cultiva ted in this nnd other portions of tite dissatisfied portion of tho state. The cause of the discontent is tho feeling, that, beyond the col Col. E. Hofer, president of the Oregon-Idaho development con gress, his son Laurence, John K. Smith of North Bend and Hon. Bill Grimes, formerly of Oklaho ma, but now of Mnrahflcld, passed through Pendleton last evening on their way to I3urn, Harney county, to nttend tho meeting of the Development Congress which is to be held at that place July 1, 2 and ;. While here Grimes asked the East Oregonian to issue a special invitation on behalf of tho Cham ber of Commerce of North Bend , nnd Marshfiold, to tho Commer cial club and business men of Pendleton, to nttend the next meeting of the Oregon-Idaho de velopment congress which is lo be held on Coos Bay next August. Grimes declared it is the inten tion of tho people of Coos Bay to mnke this a big event and to mnko it so attractive that the business men of tho state will want to go and take their wives. Tho meeting has been arranged nt a timo of the year when it will mnke n delightful summer outing. August is the month of nil months On the coast and espec ially on Coos Bay. To add to the pleasure of tho visitors it is proposed to charter a steamer to tako the delegates and visitors from Portland lo Coos Bay.
