IVittbtul, writing to the OiVKoniuu front Gold . Bosch, dis cusses tiio feasibility of tmiltiing a wt;on road down Uouo rivor to cott uect Grunts Pass aud Gold lUaoli, mid kits : Kicm Gold r.caolt ui Koguo river to Grants Pass is about 1-0 mill's, or to tln mouth of tlio Illinois riv.-r, 30 miles. From Glcmlate on tho South eru 1'aoilic, to the mouth of tho Illi nois river is about CO miles. If a Rood toll WiiKu road were built down Ronue river from either tioiut, passeti licrs and mails could get iu hort from tho railroad in 24 hours, and savo two days iu time. Josephine county has already built several miles of county wti;ou roads down Rogue, river and a gap of about 00 uiilcs remains. This could be built for about $10,000, and I am informed 20-year franchise could be secured from Curry county for tho construction of a tollroad, which would bo on a water level, never impeded by snow, over which a sta-e could cover the DO miles iu about lj hours, and the time down the river by steamer would Ue about three hours, milking only IS hours ; and on the return about llvo hours longer.. Giants Fuss is a town of ubout 3000 population, and Iter citizens would seo the vast importance to the trade of tlio town to have a good road down F.ogue river, and Josephine county would doubtless herself build a water i gr.ulo road down the river, and let a company use it for Jit years just fur keeping it in repair. This road would pass through a rich mineral co.tntry, which, at the end of the 20 years would be so developed that the toad could be made free. There are gold and copper initios up Rogue river, and at Apness, Hear the moHth of the Illinois rivtr, b. !s of bituminous coal have bei n found of nit excellent quality, which could !o mined. It seems to me a man of modi rale capi tal might handle this enterprise, aud it looks as though it would be a good investment. Mr. Winsor, nit old resident liere, informs me that iu 1SI2 ho dime down Rogue riv r iu a small boat from a place in ar w here is now Grants Pass, in 21 hours' natural limiting time, lie experienced no dilllculty. He was investigating the running of logs, and thinks they could be floated suc cessfully to Gold Heath, and there nianufacluivd into lumber. DYNAMITIC NOT IMGKKT'IM.K. The following story is ut forth by the Redding Free l'nss: It will be remembered by renders of the Free Pre.-s that a miner placed some sticks of dynamite under a bush to thy, and s; vi nil t f Ratb litVe's cows came along aud swallowed the explosive. Tin re was an immediate scatttring tf pioplc whenever thtj cows put m i.u npiK aiiiiicc, for thorn was no telling just w h. n the boviues that contained tin- dynamite would blow up and s.-ii.l do; lb and destruc tion to everything in lit. ir immediate vicinity. The cows blew up all right, but fortunately no t lie was injured. . Mr. Railcllite has found the carcasses of four or live cow s, and lie is conlith lit they are tho oil s that ato the dyna mite. Friday, while ho was round ing up his stock, ho ran across the carcasses. Tin- scattered bones proved to him beyond a doubt tinil the car cass -s w ere those of the ilynnmitt -t lit ers. lust w ben tiny exploited no oue knov.s, but the H'iiplo around llaild are now at i a so and will not beat hasty retreats ut the approach of Had clille's luileh cows.

Dillcr of tho Vuited Stales Geological Survey, gives tho follow ing with reference to Crater Lake : Twenty years ago Crater Lako was unknowu to tho general public. It is deeply get iu tho snmtnit of tho Cas cade range about tW miles north of the California line, iu tho central western edge of Klamath coutuy, Oregon, 17 miles a littlo west of north of Fort Klamath, 10 miles duo west of tho up per end of tho Klamath Indian reser vation, about 13 miles a littlo oast of north of Fort Scott, mid a liko dis tance duo south of Mount Thiolsen. The remnant of tho great mountain enclosing tho lako was tiiimed Mount Mazjinia iu ISDtt, and the Crater Lake National Turk containing 210 square miles wag established, by congress in May, 1002. Tho geological record of this country is replete wilh voleauio phenomena, but tho climax appears to have been reached iu tho early portiou of the Neocene period, when one of the largest known volcanic Ileitis of the world was vigorously active. This area stretched from tho Rocky inoim atins to tho Pacific. Tito wrecking of Mount Ma.ama aud tho development of tho great pit or caldera, w hich for beauty and grandeur rivals anything of its kind in tho world, was the crowning event in the volcanic history of the Cascade range. The rim encir cling Crater Lako appears, seen from distance, us a broad cluster of gently sloidng H'al:s. To out) arriving by the road at the crest of the rim, the lake, iu all its majestic beauty, appears suddenly upon the seoiio anil is pro foundly impressive. Thu eye beholds 20 miles of unbroken cliffs, the remnant of Mount Ma.auia, ranging front over ."tilt) to nearly 2000 feet iu height, en circling a deep blue sheet of placid water, iu which tho mirrored walls vie w ith tho original sloics in bril liancy and greatly enhance the depth of tho prospect. The lako is ubout 4.'B' miles wide and (l'4' miles long, w ith mi area of nearly "20'u square miles. Mr. Di Her discusses at length the threo types of lava in Mount Mazanui, and describes Wizard Island in the lake, w ith an men of nearly nino tenths of a square mile, as a perfectly preserved volcano, having a cylintl. r cono about KIS feet high, a crater at its summit about 2."i0 feet in diameter and HO feet deep, and a lava field around its base. The bottom of the orator on Wizard Island, is solid lava. There can be no reasonable doubt a to tho former existence of Mount Ma zamii, but its shape and si.u are more tlilllcult to determine. Mount Mazama is comimsed largely of lnvas similar to those of Mount Shasta and from the slopes of that famous peak we may draw an infert nee as to those of Mount Mazama. Mt. Shasta, unlike Mount Mazama, docs not stand on nil elevated platform. It rises with u majestic sweep of 11,000 feef from gentle slos s about its base, gradually growing steeper upwards to the bold peak. At the height of 8,000 feet it has about the same diameter ns Mount Mazama at an equal elevation in' the rim of Cratur Ijiko. Above this, Mount Shasta rises over II.IIOO feet. Tho evidence ibies hooiii to show that during the final netivily of Mt. Mazama there must have been within it a column of lava rising to a height of OVtT S,(SK) feet above tho base of I In Ciisoado liange. It is jsissible t! al Ibis groat pressure, aid. tl perhaps by some other forces, made an opening formed low down upon the mountain slops, which allowed the lava to it tape. Tim subsidence of the lava w i I Ii i il the mountain left it tin-uppori ctl and caused It to collapse. ('rati r Lake changes level. During lite summer, ulna there is rapid evap oration ami little or mi preoipilnl ion, the surface of the lake subsides; but during the rainy winter il ri-es iigain. The out illation is limited tn about four feet. The lako appears to be fed chiefly by the vast qiinnl it it s of snow which drifts across tho crest and lodges in gr at banks on tint inside. The annual pr.-clj ilaliou of the r. giou is estimated as between 0 and km in ches, t "rater Lake has no visible oi.i b l, nt.r any invisible one rem hing lie surface directly within few inll.s hut th" walls of tho e.ildera enclosing Ihe lake are made up of ulti ma! ing sin its t.f lava, dipping away from lie lal.e practically in all direct ions, and they ar. so porous as to allord t as passage for much water. Springs on the int, uut tan an- abundant and n -markahlc iu size, especially on tin southeast, along a fault iu the moun tain side, which probablly nll'ords an oull. t for much of the water that per colates throt.gli that xirliou of the rim.

Tho Real Local Cption Kill, to which wo referred sotno weeks ago, is now a law anil Ohio has taken a new position iu the advance of temperance legislation. It establishes the princi pal of local option, which its enemies sot out to defeat. It maintains every materia? point w hich its friends un dertook to carry. It will afford tho effectual opportunity to hundreds of municipalities iu Ohio to rid them selves of tho saloon. It widens the application of local option to .the seats of the salortli interests iu the towns of tho state. It will bring in its wako ward local option. It is by fur tho most significant temperance victory that has been gained iu the history of the struggle in Ohio. THE SALOON MUST GO. The Ohio press sjiouks well of the new Ileal local option law. Canadians prohibitionists have started a newspaper organ, Tho Liber ator. Anti-Saloon League leatlers will pnsli for thu use of the Pnal local option law in Ohio. An effort is being made to drive out t-liti "blind pigs" from the capitol buildings nt Washington. A number of candidates for mem bership iu tho Ontario legislature have pledged themselves, for prohibi tion. Oxford will be the first town in Ohio to hold a local option election tinder the new Heal law. Petitions calling for an elect ion have been numerously signed. There are four prohibition slates Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Kansas, and in Iowa there is aniodillcd form of legislation on the same line. Tho most drastic laws are iu Kansas, where Ihe penalty for sell ing iuto.icanis is a line of from $1,000 to $1,000 ami imprisonment, and where wu notice oiie dealer lias recently been fined f.i.OOO and then Kent to j'ail. THE DEVIL'S RAILROAD. Tickets fif this rond can b found at any saloon or bow ling alloy. The road stalls from tho twin cities Wil fulness and Disobedience and is known for ils rapid travclj being down grade Willi brakes off. Tho president of this road calls it. "Easy, do-as-you-plcimn" road, but tho traveler soon linds that the slave's fetters are not to be compared to the fi llers of sill. It. leads through tint "Pail Lands," the lirst station being" Cigarette ville." This is a great manufactur ing town. It takes Ihe best material the nation affords, as pure boys, mid maniifaclttri s them into dwarfs, in valids, lumalcs of the insane asylmn, ami drunkards. Nt xt you pats the exchange build ing. The propi lt tor says : "Givotne your while life, ami I will mar it Give mo your good naiuo and 1 w ill tarnish it. Give mo your upright character, and 1 will blacken it." The road is very rough. Tho train is often ditched, which sends many inlo a tl.tik i tt iiiily. Next is Tobacco r.aii.l. 'I hire's no reason for mistak ing this, for the smoke can be seen for many miles. II is not fenced for nolbiiig in all Uic world but worms anil m. in will touch it. The in l slop is "Ti in j t nt it in Cross ing." Her,, many leave for the "nar row gauge" pia.l, which goes iu Ihe npiosile din ctiin, up the mini it I tt i n side to the Celestial I'it.v.

Tho north bound passenger train No. 12 was wrecked six miles uorth of Cot (ago Grove at 1 :!)() p. nt Sunday. The engine, and five cars left tho trucK. Tho only one hurt was a tramp who was riding on the blind baggage , mid ho may die from 1 1 1 o injuries received. Tho engine and baggago cars wero badly damaged, ami one end of tho mail car was smashed. Threo passenger coaches wero off the track, and tho trucks wero all knocked off tho curs. Tho baggage car lay neross the track, and tho three coaches were diagonal from tho track. Due coach was 110 or -10 feet from tho rails. The track was badly torn up for !I00 feet, ami tho roadbed was greatly damaged. This is one of tho most miraculous wri cks that has ever oecnred on tho Southern Pacific system. Tho scene of the wreck is a low, marshy stretch, where tho track Is flat, and ground soft. Several of tho passengers bad a few slight bruises, but not serious. Tho passengers were taken to Cottage Grovo for stipiter, and'u transfer was made. The work of clearing the truck begun Sunday evening and was completed on Monday so that tho belated trains reached hero in tho evening. CONTRACTS THAT Ml'ST HE IN WRITING. I.
