I. O. O. F. Building - - Burns, Oregon
SATURDAY. JANUARY 31. I9M
The proposed line of railroad
started by local people from tertaining.
Burns south to a connection with Piano solo
through lines to San Francisco is
a feasible proposition and la a
line that would eventually be
built by some railroad system as
it opens a bijr territory and from
what is said by those familiar
with the territory it la an engine
erinjr possibility, more suitable
to electrification than steam, how
ever. Should those instrumental
in starting the move meet with
favor from the (iould road and
San Francisco financiers and no
formidable obstacles met from
other railroad sources, it will he
a great thing for the country.
This route has been in vet
by railroad people. Col. Hollibird,
Harriman's confidential man, has
gone over tne ground ami me
Gould people have also investi
gated it By diverting tuch a
big territory to the San Fran
cisco markets direct and the
completion of the Panama ("anal
it is almost certain business in
terests of the California cltj may
be relied upon to give the build
tag of such a line active support.

Meets Next Tuesday
The Burns Agricultural Club
will hold its regular meeting next
Tuesday evening in the assembly
room of the public school and an
exceptionally fine program has
been arranged for the evening.
The general public is invited to
attend this meeting as it promises
to be of much benefit to the en

Report of Library Club.
The Times-Herald knows that
Harney county has some of the
best horses ever raised, not ex
cepting Kentucky, therefore it
urges the farmers to bring them
in to be judged during the short
course. Remember there's going
to be free hay and table room at
the fair grounds and Mr. Leedy,
of the high school, should be
notified at once of what stock
may be brought in. The stock
judging is not going to be con
fined to horses only, however.
Beef and dairy cattle, swine and
sheep are also wanted. The
manager of this great religious
hasn't ascertained whether Prof.
Scudder is going to lecture on
poultry and call them animals
or not, therefore cannot advise
as to chickens. The writer is a
good judge of chickens after
they've been properly prepared
in the domestic science depart
ment, however, so bring in the
The Library Club met at the
home of Mrs. Farre, on Saturday
A number of items of impor
tant business was dispatched with
Mrs. J. W. Geary presiding. The
Literary program consisted of
three numbers: An excellent
paper by Mrs. J. W. Bigg, on
"A Journey up the Hudson,"
was particularly interesting, as
it was purely reminiscent, of an
actual journey taken by Mrs.
Biggs some years ago.
Mrs. Carl read an able paper
on "Yellow Stone Park" and
"Niagara Falls" illustrating the
same with some fine views.
"America" was the closing
number, sung by the club, with
Mrs. Farre at the piano.

the work at the experiment sta

The committee in charge of
the arrangements for the religi
ous revival to begin in the city
on Feb. 8 has secured Tonawama
Theatre for that purpose for a
part of the time. Beginning
with Sunday Feb. 8 there will be
preaching services at the theatre
both in the morning and in the
evening. There will be no ser-
ices in the churchas on that day
other than Sunday school in the
morning. Rev. Cleighton will
also preach in the theatre Mon
day, Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday evenings. There will
be no services on Saturday even
ing but again on Sunday, Feb.
15, there will be two services at
the same place. On this date
Revs. Lewis and Mathews, both
noted singers and preachers, will
join in the religious work.
It is expected the revival ser
vices will continue during the
week following, but as the thea
tre has been engaged for the
short course the religious services
will likely be held at the church.

Uetl Cough M.dnin. for Children ,
"I am very glad to Bay a few
words in praise of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy" writes Mrs.
Lida Dewey, Milwaukee, Wis.
"I have used it for years both
for my children and myself and
it never fails to relieve and cure
a cough or cold. No family with
children should be without it as
it gives almost immediate relief
in cases of croup." Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy is pleasant
and safe to take, which is of
great importance when a medi
cine must be given to young
children. For sale by all dealers

definite information with refer
ence to further construction on
these projected lines, and what
has been done so far is of no prac
tical benefit to this country,
in fact doeH not r lieve the
situation at all. It is our firm
belief, therefore, that the time
has come for independent action
on the part of the people them
selves, and we therefore recom
mend that the proposed road be
built and that steps be taken
immediately to organize for that
purpose. We have faith in the
ability of the people of Burns
and Harney Valley to seek and
obtain their own relief from this
intolerable situation, and we re
commend that they at once pro
ceed to the undertaking, confi
eent in their ultimate success.
"To that end we recommend,
as an initial step, a temporary
organization for the purpose of
determining the most desirable
route for such road, its probable
cost, methods of financing the
undertaking, nature and charact
er of the proposed railroad com
pany, and generally to perfect
all necessary preliminary ar
rangements. "We recommend further thai
every efTert be made to interest
not only the citizens of this
town and vicinity but also every
one in any way interested in the
development and progress of the
country naturally tributary and
adjacent to the proosed line of
road, to the end that the whole
country lie united in a common
effort to secure transportation
facilities. We believe that pra
ctically every rancher and farmer
in this entire country can be in
terested in thi matter, and we
would leave no stone unturned
in the effort to secure their un
qualified support and co-oera-tion.
This movement should be
in no sense sectional or local, but
rather a united and determined
effort to obtain the relief to which
we are, and for many years have
been, justly entitled.
"Your committee are unani
mously in favor of each and all
of the foregoing recommenda
tions and beg leave to hope that
they will be favorably received."
At a largely attended meeting
held at the Masonic hall last night,
called by President (iault of the
Commercial Club, these resolu
tions were adopted and the gen
eral feeling of those present was
favorable to going ahead with
the proposed line and arrange
ments were made to carry the
The president was authorized
to appoint a general committee
of nine to have charge of further
ing this work. This commi' tee
is authorized to appoint sub-committees
and all the promotion is
to be under their supervision.
The first matter to be taken up
will be securing sufficient funds
by subscription to send men over
the route to ascertain the best
way, after which a committee is
to be appointed to compile statis
tics of the country, gather all
data ne essary respecting the
resources of the territory, the
business a railroad would get at
present and'what the possibilities
are when the territory is develop
ed. Armed with this represent
ativea will be sent to Salt Lake
to confer with the men who are
financing the Surprise Valley
railroad which is to be built this
year and is considered a subsidi
ary of the Western Pacific. This
seems to be the logical connec
tion for a north and south road
from this section at present and
as the line to Surprise has already
been financed and in course of
construction it is considered these
people will be receptive to the
proposition of extending the pos
sibilities of the line.
Should the proposition appeal
to the Salt Lake financiers it is
the plan to invite them to go to
San Francisco with Burns repre
sentatives and place the matter
before the . I ran: .portal ion and
commercial people of that city.
With such a big territory as the
goal it is not questioned but San
Francisco will respond.
Those familiar with the pro
posed route state there is no dif
ficult engineering features to
overcome and the line can be
tied on to the proposed Surprise
Valley line by building not to ex
ceed 180 miles, all of which is
easy with the exception of about
60 miles which will only be fairly
This is an important movement
on the part of this section and is
one of far reaching effect. The
men who are at work mean busi
ness and arc confident of meet
ing with success. It is not a
Burns proposition, although fos
tered and started here, but one
that the whole country will join
in. It vill open up a big isolated
territory that has long been re
tarded through lack of communi
cation and transportation and
people interested ' along the line
will enter into the scheme with
entusiasm. It is a feasible rail
road line that will pay dividends.
Great Area of Land
To Be Reclaimed.
Will R. King chief counsel of
the reclamation service, told some
interesting things at the Pro
gressive Business Men's luncheon
at the Hotel Multnomah in Port
land recently about the work be
ing done and in contemplation by
that department of the govern
ment in the way of redeeming
arid and swampy lands in the
western and southern states.
Mr. King said that $80,000,000
had been invested by fhe govern
ment in reclamation projects in
15 or 16 states. The money, he
said, was a loan without interest
to the people and was supposed
to be repaid in ten equal install
ments after the projects were
completed. This benefit, givon
to the western states, was not
shared by the other states, he
Mr. King said that the secre
tary of the interior has started
out on a new basis. He had
placed the reclamation service on
a commission form of govern
ment, appointing five commis
sioners. Mr. King said that Oregon had
as many good projects not yet
undertaken as any state in the
union. He said it was like two
states in one. The eastern part
was dry, "even in the 'wet'
counties." he added facetiously
and the western ortion got all
the rain it wanted. For the pre
sent, the best outlook was for
the arid section, the Deschutes,
Baker and Harney valleys.
The western country was rea
ching a condition where it was
difficult for private capital to
handle irrigation projects, as
when they were built with pri
vate capital they must pay inter
est upon the investment, ne said.
In Baker county alone there were
80,000 acres that could be reclaim
ed by the government. An ap
portionment of $800,000 had been
made for the west Umatilla pro
ject, and about $3,000,000 had
been spent on the Hermiston and
Mr. King said that Oregon had
contributed more to the reclama
tion Bervice than any state ex
cept Oklahoma, but at the pre
sent there were no available
funds for the work. He said
that a recommendation had been
made to congress to loan the de
partment $100,000,000, and he
expected that $200,000,000 Would
le invested in reclamation pro
jects in the next ten years.
Homes would be placed where
they had never been dreamed of
and the taxable property would
be doubled in value in all the
western states, he said.
The one serious defect about
Oregon, he asserted, was that it
had not enough state commission
ers to adjudicate water rights.
It Bhould have been seven in
stead of two and instead of
$2400 a year the salary should be
as large as that of a circuit judge.
The matter should be put up to
the next legislature, he said.
Harney and Malheur counties
alone would keep one man busy
for 18 months, and at the present
way of operating, it would take
anywhere from 10 to 40 years to
adjudicate the state'B water pro
Seek Species of Rare Deer.
In pursuit of specimens of
rare animals, to lie added to the
collection being made by the
state, Stanley 0, Jewett, natura
list, and O. J, Murie, field assis
tant, arrived in Bend this morn
ing on their way to Davis Lake.
They will leave tomorrow, ac
companied by district game
warden C. M. McKay and deputy
warden John Riis.
The particular species which
the state game department is
seeking in Central Oregon is a
white-tailed deer. This animal
is not found in many localities in
the state and Ib rapidly becom
ing extinct, hence the efforts of
(lame Warden Finley to secure a
speciment for mounting. There
are several of these deer in the
vicinity of Davis Lake and the
party of hunters will endeavor
to get at least two adults before
returning to Bend. Bulletin.
