people. We have had experience
in Montana and it has no such
advantages in an agricultural
way as this section. It is not
our theory that tho country must
bo populated before we build."
After discussing the gathering
of products of this county for the
exhibition car which they will
run throughout the eastern and
middle states during the coming
winter, he turned his attention
to the building of roads into the
interior. He stated they were
going to build into this section
and develop central Oregon.
"The Deschutes line will be
the backbone "of our system in
the state and the ribs will be
fitted in all right. We have not
built into this section before be
cause all things were not ready,
but now we are going to build
you a railroad. Our details are
not completed and even if they
were it would not be right for
me to give them out After get
ting back to Portland and sitting
down with Mr. Hanley and com
pare notes, I shall be able to tell
pretty near where your road is
going to run."
Mr. Hill explained how they
assisted the people of Montana.
They have 42 experiment sta
tions in that state for the propa
gation of cereals, fruits and veg
etables beststlitcd to the various
localities and conditiohs. Next
year the Hill interests propose to
co-operate with us in starting
experiment stations and getting

now in the hands of men who
will sell it and develop it at a
rapid rate. Mr. Hill also discuss
ed better roads and suggested a
change in the forestry service
that would give the states the
benefit rather than go to a hord
of rangers and forestry officials.
He was frequently interrupted
during his talk by applause. In
his closing remarks he referred
to Mr. Hanley and it brought
such a thunder of applause and
calls for Mr. Hanley that ho had
to respond.
Mr. Hanley expressed his ap
preciation of tho warm welcome
accorded him by his home people
and was more or less confused
but finally pulled himself together
and stated ho felt confident that
Harney county would see tho
early construction of a railroad
by the Hill interests and while ho
had been greatly honored by be
ing given credit for this move ho
merely was doing his duty as a
citizen and was glad to bo of
assistance to his old friends and
neighbors. He spoko of tho high
cost of living and said it could
only be solved by turning to tho
soil, but that transportation was
necessary to make this a success
in central Oregon. Ho spoke of
tho large land holdings and show
ed that such were necessary in
the .past as small JlnB jM

tho methods of running exhibit

Ho said tho people of Harney
county woro fortunate in getting
the Hill railroad interested in this
section as wo would receive much
attention and have u great num

In tho evening n reception
was tendered at tho Odd Fellows'
hall where a largo number of our
citizens from various parts of the
county mot Mr. Hill. Win. Han
ley was pressed into service as
master of ceremonies and called
upon several to respond to var
ious questions. G. A. Rembold
was asked by Mr. Hanley to give
some reasons why Burns should
have a railroad. Mr. Rembold
said ho was much pleased with
the address of Mr. Hill in the
afternoon; the policy of tho rail
road made it possible for Harney
county to develop and become
populous since it did not require
the development and people be
fore it came. He stated that he

that our peoplo felt most kindly

Hon. Frank Davey was called
upon to givo further reasons
which ho did in a most happy
manner, assuring Mr. Hill of the
co-operation of the press of this
section and giving a few facts
regarding tho bigness and possi
bility of the country to be served
by his road.
Judge Miller talked of tho ex
perience of early merchants of
this region; of tho hardships and
the desire for a change. Mr.
Hanley finally stated that ho was'
almost convinced that Burns did
need a railroad and since it was
up to him to say so he thought

The stage was tastefully decor

banked with a mass of flowers
and potted plants.
The program was particularly
pleasing and excellent and all
present showed a deep interest
in tho school and the graduating
class. Each number was well
received and applauded and the
parcipants received hearty con
gratulatulations. Dr. Marsden's address to tho

One of tho most enthusiastic
meetings in tho history of Harney
county was held last Monday eve
ning at the courthouse when Tom
Richardson & Chas. V. Gallaway
addressed an overflowing house.
Mr. Richardson had been adver
tised as Oregon's greatest booster
and ho was greeted by people
from all over tho County.
Hon. Chas. V. Galloway, a
member of tho State tax comm
ission, was hero on oflkinl busi
ness and was pressed into service.
Ho stated he did not como to us
as a booster but after viewing
magnificent country any one
would become a booster. Mr,
Galloway is a pleasing speaker
and spoke most entertainingly,

Mr. Richardson mndo one of
Hie best get together speeches I
ever heard in this section. Ho is '
a man who understands the situ-
ation in this state and told his '
hearers that wo were tho center
of the stage today. We hardly

not a joke to tho man from tho

subdue the sago brush and soil for
a home and that ho needs the
cheerful co-operation of oui pco-

Ho paid his respects to the (lis-

Mr. Richardson's address was
well received and will bear fruit.
Hi3 coming was timely and tho '
advise given was to, the point.
We needed such inspiration to

ize tho importance of concerted
effort and obtain tho best results.
Ho said Louis W. Hill was the
most important young man in tho
world today in transportation
matters and that tho coming of
tho Hills was tho beginning of a
now era in central Oregon. He
emphasized tho importance of
keeping our city and county bo
foro tho public and leaving noth
ing undono to assist in tho devel
opment of this unsettled terri
tory, ns it was not only important
to us locally but tho entire state
and nation. Wo have advantages

thousands aro flocking and wo

by hearty applause
Tho Times-Herald was pleased
to see such a largo attendance at
this meeting of people from a
distance Many new peoplo were
present and remained for tho
reception of Mr. Hill tho next
day and thoy were all encourag

through his personal efforts that
