fire also spread to the Pottenger &
Cox slaughter honse and several
buildings adjoining it were burned.
Two small buildings lying directly
west of the Medord Distilling &
Refining Company's plant . were
burned. Had the fire reached the

RAILROAD MEN WELCOMED.
Several prominent railroad men
were in Grants Pass Wednesday even
ing, traveliug by special car and were
welcomed in a fitting manner by the
Board of Trado and citizens. The vis
itors wero taken to tho parlors of the
Grants Pass Banking mid Trust Co.
and of the First National Rank, where
they were shown quantities of gold
nuggets and dust, tho products of the
Josephine county mines. The party
then repaired to tho dining room of
the Hotel Josephine where they were
entertained with refreshments. R. L.
Coe, president of the Hoard of Trade,
made a brief address of welcome, ex
pressing the gratification of the
Grants Pass Board of Trade and citi
zens at the opportunity of meeting
and welcoming their distinguished
visitors and of talking over the mu
tual interests iu southern Oregon's
development. He spoke of tho great
natural resources of southern Oregon,
our wealth of mineral and timber, and
our grand possibilities in those lines
of industry, as well ns iu those of
fruit and agriculture. He expressed
the willingness of Grunts Pass to co
operato iu any measures calculated to
advance tho development of southern
O. M. McKinney, immigration agent
for the Harrinmn lines, replied to the
speech of Mr. Coe and expressed him
self as agreeably surprised at the mag
nitude of the resources of this portion
of southern Oregon. In 25 years of
immigration work, he had not found
a section with a moro premising fu
turo or ono that offered greater in
ducements to tho homeseeker.
W. E. Comsii expressed tho . interest
of tho S. P. Co. in tho building up of
tho country tributary to their lines
and believed that Josephine county
would be vastly benefitted by a hearty
co-operation of tho Board of Trade
with Mr. McKinuey. It was decided
that the board pledge 100, 000 descrip
tive pamphlets to Mr. McKinuey and
the immigration bureau. The jiarty
consisted of W. E. Coiuaii, general
freight and passenger agent of the S.
P. lines iu Oreogu; (. M. McKinuey,

O. R. & N. territory, east of the Cas
cade Mountains, between Huntington
aud Spokane. They examined all
phases of industry now represented
there ns well as the capacity of the
country for new industries, and its ad
vantages for home seek its, with or
without capital. They will know
Oregon pretty well when they return
from tho trip over the Southern l'u

quaintance with the state is to equip
the immigration agents for going
among the onpln of the Mississippi
valley who wish to seek new homes
and giving them reliable information
