After reading the outside pa
pers The Times-Herald man finds
that Harney county was not
singled out by the weather man
for the dose given us the first of)
this week. The storm covered
the entire country with snow
and ice at Portland, Med ford
and other supposed favored sec
tions. Harney county has not
been damaged as these more for
tunate neighbors as vegitation
was not so far advanced here
and now that "spell" has passed 'and
we may expects crops to go for
ward in a Very satisfactory way.
The only real damage the cold
storm has done, if any, is a iws
sible loss to sheepmen who are
lambing. We have heard of no
loss, however, and perhaps none

J. E. Johnson, nn experienced

Roy Bunyard and wife enmo
down from Harney lost Saturday
afternoon in company with Chns.
Loggan in his auto. That is Roy
considered it an auto at the
start, but beforo reaching Burns
he thought it a very common
kerosene wagon. We have for
gotten the number of times the
tires punctured and other mis
haps thoy were numerous and
Roy thought ho could beatit with
a team. However after reach
ing town and ho saw Sheriff
Richardson, Roy lays all tho
blamo on Charley's driving.
Dr. Griffith has somo practice
Sunday afternoon as a chauffeur,
taking Tho Times-Herald forco
out to Poison creek in his auto.
Of course one should not go fish
ing on Sunday and that possiblo
was responsible for tho wcater
and for a tiro to puncture. Tho
experience was novel for all con
cerned and tho Doctor's reputa
tion both as a driver and surgeon
on punctured tires is established.
Tho entiro party-including tho
Doctor were tired of riding nt
tho head of the grade leading
down to the Byrd ranch, therefore
we walked down. Coming homo
wo faced a blizzard and then it
was that Dr. Griffith showed his
skill at tho stcaring wheel for
tho snow blinded us nnd it was
necessary to give tho machino a
certain brand of "con talk" to
make it stay in tho road.

To The Emtek:
Wo notlco in tho Oregoninn of
tho 12th Inst that James J. Say
er "leaves Portlaud today as an
envoy of tho 'Oregon Dovolop
ment LcnRue' to preach progress
in Central Oregon."
And in so doing ho will travol
"across tho plains of Eastern
Oregon through tho Malheur Can
yon, into tho wheat fields of tho
John Day country."
It Is to bo hoped ho mny get
into tho wheat fields of Harney
Valley on his travels as, ho will
then see somo wheat fields.
Of course wo will recolvo
brothor Saycr with open arms
and opon houso and show him
somo country tho liko which ho
will not sco either on his way
hither or thither.
Ho will also learn ns others be
fore him that nil tho preaching
by all tho preachers hero and
there will not develop this big
country with out a railroad.
Wo havo a live energetic and
highly intcligont Commercial
Club, wo can display thousands
of letters from outsillo points
which hnyc been truthfully an
swerod and which havo failed to
bring sottlers for tho ono renson
"no railroad" transportation.
Wo cannot expect settlers to
enter n country where rail roads
fail to build, you can preach to
them that it is necessary for set
tlement to induco railroads to
build nnd they will turn from
you in scorn, It requires somo
ncrvo for a poor devil of a Bottler
to resist tho talcs of tho cordon
of knockers which nlmost sur
rounds this vast region. Thoy
can get through on a rail road
but not otherwise.
Wo will be glad to moot Bro.
Sayer and listen to him preach
but what wo need is railroad con
struction. Lnst year, tho worst in this
section's history, a farmer eight
miles east of Burns, out in tho
so called "dry section" cleared
$15.00 per acre from ICO acres of
grain as his sharo of tho rent,
nnd this without irrigation on
ordinary sago brush land his
tenant knows how to farm bo
called "dry lands." We know
tho foregoing to bo absolutely
true-also that wo huvo millions
of ncres of such land, somo for
the taking up, somo for salo at
from $15 to $30 per acre, and yet
in Hnrney county nlono nn cm-
piro containing upwards of six
million ncres of land has but
about four thousand population.
Wo havo spent thousands in
advertising and I remember
about ten years ngo an emmigra
tion agent of ono of the great
railroad systems wrote for data
of this country; this letter was
handed me for answer; I wrote
giving all tho information asked,
invited tho gentlcmnn to como
in and verify my statement, nnd
ndded I anticipate your answer,
you are too far from railroad
transportation.,' Ho replied,
saying, "1 was. right, but wo
would soon havo railroads."
