Laundry Business Expanding.
Tbe Grants Pans stean laundrf,
operated by Baker Bros, is reaching
out for business into the valley towns.
Baker Bros, are progressive and
hustling business men and turn out a
quality of work that is deserving of wide
spread patronage. Tbey have a better,
more complete and np-to data laundry
than can bis found in any town between
Portland and Sacramento. Tbe Med
ford Mali says;
"J. W. Baker, senior proprietor of tbe
Grantf Pass steam laundry is in Med
ford for the establishment of a laundry
business in Medlord. Tbe plan be
baa mapped out will be that of putting
on a laundry wagon, thereby introducing
a free collecting and delivery of laundry
articles. Tbe laundry work for the
present will be done in (J rants Pass.
Tbe fact that the Medlord city water is
not considered suitable for laundry
work precludes any possibility of es
tablishing a plant here for the present.
Mr. Baksr will commence making a

cient work will be given biin to warrant
tbe establishment of a branch bare.

Railroad to Crescent City.
The railroad from Granta Pass to Cres
cent City, so often suggested, has now
good prospects for becoming a reality.
The stimulation of the enterprise is found
in the development of the large copper
fields of the Walde district. The Oregon
A Pacific Rv. Co. is tbe name by which
the nroDosed road is to be known. The
company orgauiied for its construction
is composed to a very large extent of the
owners of the Waldo Copper mines.
Tbey are solid men', backed by plenty of
capital and are fully able to carry out the
project without asking assistance from
anyone. The primary object of the road
from Waldo to Crescent City is to pro
vide an outlet from the mines to the sea
coast, and to secure the advantages of
water transportation. The extension of
the road from Waldo to Grants Pans to
connect with the Southern Pacific is a
matter of comparative ease. The survey
will be made and if" the road is built It
will in all likelihood come to Grants Pass.
On Monday, a meeting was held at the
City Hall, attended by the city ouncil,
the board of trade and citizens, to con
sider the project anil to offer whatever
encouragement might be possible. Alter
a brief discussion, the following resolu
tion was offered by Councilman Harmon
and unanimously adopted i
"Resolved that tbe common council
will use every effort to further and pro
mote in every reasonable and honorable
way the project'for the Oregon & Pacific
Railway company's building a railway
from Grants Pass, Oregon, to Crescent
City.Cal., and that this council will use
their entire strength for grunting a right
of way and terminal facilities in and
through the city of Grants Pass and that
tbey will use their good offices for pro
curing a right of way from Grants Pass
The board of trade adopted a resold
tion endorsing the action of the council
This road is to be standard gauge.
Its importance in developing the
many resources of Josephine county
and particularly of tho Illinois valley
is readily realised. Then there it an
important coniidoralion which shapes
itself as this matter presents itself. The
need of a direct line from the Northern
California or Oregon coast is often full
and the Eureka A Eastern railway
being proposed to meet this need. If
the Oregon & Pacific Is built, this should
by all means he the routo taken by the
eastem road. There would be many ad
vantages iu this route. The rough and
difficult Coast Range will have been si
ready surmounted. Iu the Cascades
there It one of the finest mountain pisses
in the world, near tbe bead of Rogue
river, waiting for a railroad. A road by
this route would tap rich country nearly
its whole distance.
