TRADE LOST TO OREGON
Inl&nd Empire of KlumatK Se
cured to California.
Among the developments of the past
year teuding to the enlargement of
what we may call the general sphere
of California trade and influence, but
which lias attracted little public
notice, is the building of a railroad
from the point where the Southern
Pacific line crosses Klamath river, in
the basin of Southeastern Oregon.
This little road, now something like
80 miles long, follows tho general line
of the Klamath river in a northeaster
ly direction, piercing the mountain
barrier which separates California
from Oregon, crossing the state
boundary a ihort distance above
Klamath Hot Springs, and entering
the fine timber belt which lies be
tween Klamath lako on the east and
the Cascado nionntaius on the west
The nnmiual purposo of this enter
prise is to reach the Klamath timber
belt, but that behind this purpose
there, is a larger ouo related to the
pernniuetit commeroe of the country,
is niado manifest by tho fact that tho
work of construction has been done in
the most thorough minuer and that
arrangements have been ruado at a
point on Klamath lake looking to the
establishment of terminal" facilities.
Some 12 or 15 miles more of construct
ion from Pokegama, the present
northern terminus of tho line, will
carry it forward to a connection with
navigation on upper Klamath Lake.
The great basin of Southeastern
Oregon thus approached for the first
time by an effective system of trans
portation is tho largest remaining
district in the United Slates wholly
undeveloped in a transportation sense.
It is a country as largo as the State
of Ohio, with a thoiisand elements of
political wealth, but "which op to
this time has been held iu tho bou
dago of nn almost absolute isolation.
The five or six thousand people occu
pying this great region aro devoted
exclusively to tho stock industry and
live practically tho lives of pioneers.
It is useless to produce anything
which cannot walk out to market,
therefore, nothing in thn way of
community industrv is attempted ex
cepting animal husbandry. Wide
areas of the most beautiful and poten
tial prodnctivo country lie barren and
wasto because cultivation is useless
where there is no means of getting to
It has long been a question with
those who know anything about the
Klamath region as to whether It bo-
longs commercially to California, to
Oregon or to the commercial cities of
Utah. It is approachable by practi
cally level routes from the north,
from the east nud from the southwest;
and tho soberest judgment has been
that the future commercial connec
tinu of tho country depends largely
uiion which of these three routes was
first to he opened. This point has
been determined by the enterprise of
tho Klamath lumber company of
which Mr. Ifervey Lindley, of Los
Angeles, is the most active spirit.
The Kalniath Klver Railroad which
has uow penetrated to Pokegama and
which most soon reach Klamath Lake,
cannot fail to establish the lino of
omtnercial interest southward with
the commercial cities of California.
One railroad will for a long time he
ample for all tho needs of tho
Klamath basin. This road, uow
nearly constructed, establishes tho
connection with California and it
will probably have no rival for many
years to come. California, through
Mr. Lindley's enterprise, has at
least won tho first .move and will
probably 1 ablo to retain tho very
great advantage, gained. Sacramento

While the Southern Pacific Com

stolen out of tho express car by some

open and the safe missing. The robber
or robbers gained an entrance to the
car through the end door, the lock of
which had been forced. Sullivan at
ouc-e untitled the railway officials of
the robb'-ry, aud a search for the
missing safe resulted in hurling it
uear tunnel No. 2. It had been
broken iuto and the contents had been
taken with the exception of a
valuable diamond, some cheeks and
othf-r valuable pajvrs.
The amount of the treasure carried
in the safe has not yet been deter
mined. Lxpress oliicials staf) that it
was only a few hundred dollan, but
that there were iomo valuable papers.
Estimates from the scene of the rob
bery place the amount as high as
sO,noi,but it is thought this estimate
is greatly exaggerated.
One man is under arrest at San Luis
Obifiio on suspicion of being one of
the robbers. The evidence againi-t
him however, is only circumstantial.
Slow progress of the train would
permit of the robbers entering the ex
press car, throwing out the safe and
jumping after it without danger.

THE INFORMATION BUREAU
Good Work Accomplished During
The month of December rounded
out the first year of the work of the
Oregon Information Bureau and this
report will aim to show what has
been accomplished. Various or
ganizations throughout the State have
been formed which co-operate with
our Bureau in assisting homesoekers
and those seeking investment to lo
cate with us. We have an exhibit of
the products of the State gathered
from various counties from one end
of the stato to the other, which en
ables visitors to determine for them
selves what Oregon can do iu the Ag
ricultural, Horticutrual, Mineral,
Lnmber and Manufacturing indus
tries. We have gathered descriptive
literature and statistical information
from nearly all the countries in the
State bo that we aro enabled to tell
what seotious of the State are adapted
to the different pursuits and also to
give tho price of lands in the various
counties. We have received 878 let
ters. We have written 801 letters;
3104 pieces of literature have been
mailed and 17,IX'8 pieces otherwise
distributed ; -Itfltl visitors have res
tored at the Bureau and have been
furnished information regarding the
various products of the State.
The press of t'10 State have been
very friendly to us and have assisted
in numerous ways, by advertising the
Bureau aud its objects. Thirty-six
papers have placed us on their freo
list and our own city papers have
alwasbeon ready to give us favor
Wo have been enabled to make
numerous trips over tho several trans
portation lines centering here, to
gather information and exhibits, by
tho courtesy of tho several officials
who appreciate the importance aud
value of the work being done by the
Burean, aud speak in the highest
terms of its accomplishments.
Visitors express aurpriso at the
wonderful productions of Oregon,
and many falso impressions have been
corrected as to oy climatic and other
Owing to the demand for exhibits
for other attractions, wo havo been
somewhat handicapped In securing
exhibits that wc.ro promised us, but
as they are all for thn same object,

niado greater efforts and secured
others in their place.

harvest will be very large. We have

SENATORS TO BE CHOSEN
Elected in June They Vote on
Next V. S. Senator.
When the legislature eonveues in
January, 1905, there is likely to be
number of familiar faces missing from
the Senate chamber, as there arn 15
members of the upper house whose
terms expire or who have been electad
or appointed to positions which pre
clude their serving the peoplo of Ore
gon iu the 33d Legislative Assembly,
says the Telegram.
Now that the political pot is be
ginning to boil, and the hungry office-
seeker is standing around waiting to
be summoned to the feast, that fact
a brought promiiiontly to the atten
tion of the voters who are to supply
the fuel which feeds the fires undor
The most prominent countenance
which will be among the missing is
Hon. Charles W. Fulton, whose term
of office would not have expired for
wo years more had lie not been elect
ed to the United States Senate. It is
safo to say, when past legislatures
are considered, that the second man
on the missing list, Will be Hon.
John D. Daly of Benton county. Mr.
Daly could have had his seat oc
cupied iu the extra session of the
legislature recently adjourned by a
successor who would have held office
for two years more, had he made such
request to his constituents. He
could have made snob request legally,
for following the adjournment of the
Tweuty-seooud Legislative Assembly,
Mr. Daly was- appointed United
States Surveyor-General for the State
of Oregon. Under the ooustitution
that appointment barred Mr. Daly
from a seat iu tho Senate, but rather
than pat Benton county to the expense
of a special election, he stated he
would serve aud allow the Senate to
lass on his qualifications. That
plan was satisfactory to the people of
Benton .county, aud no special election
was held. Mr. Daly did not answer
roll call dnriug the extra session of
the legislature, however, thus leaving
Benton county without representation
iu the Senate during the three days
last mouth. Benton county will elect
his successor iu Juno.
Hon. J. N. Williamson, representa
tive iu congress from the second dis
trict, was senator from Crook,
Klamath, Lake aud Wasco oountios at
the time of his election t') tho
national body at Washington. His
term of office would have expired in
June, 1904, had he not boeu chosen
for tho higher position.
It is claimed by knowing ones that
tho smiling counteuauce of Hon,
W. II. Wohrung will not be at the
next session In behalf of the poope of
Washington county. Mr. Wehrung's
term has run out, aud as he is a
democrat, his constituents say he
will bo replaced by a republican.
Polk county will have to look
around for another senator, unless
Hon. B. V. Mulkey is re-elected.
Hon. Alex Swoek will havo his
hands full as chairman of tho Demo
cratic County Central Committee, and
will not attempt to secure tne nomi
nation for Senator from Colombia,
Multnomah aud Washington counties.
Tho other Senators whose terms ex
pire are Marstcrs of Douglas, Booth
of Douglas, Josephine and Lane;
Dimmick of Coos and Curry; W.
Tyler Smith of Lincoln, Tillamook
and Yamhill (who may bo succeeded
by B. F. Jones of Lincoln); Hunt,

Mr. Bybee has for nearly half a
century beeu one of tho leading
figures iu the Rogue river valley
business world. As a laud owuer he
was owned more land than any other
man. He has also been interested iu
mines, but cattle and hogs were ven
tures In which he made the most
money. For more than 40 years Mr.
Bybee was the principal and much of
the time the only hog buyer in the
Rogue river valley and each fall he
would drive thouasuds of hogs to the
distant mining camps. His principal
marketing point was at Happy Camp
in Del Norte county, though he drove
to all the other big camps in South
ern Oregon and Northern California
and he even made several drives to
the camps in Nevada. Mr. Bybee
states that the most enjoyable' days of
his life were those spent on the
drives, though sonio of the trips were
anything but pleasant for somotimes
he was caught iu a snow storm in
the mountain trails with his hogs aud
then there were hardships in plenty.
Mr. Bybee's father was a noted stock
man of Kentucky aud iq the days be

head of hogs aud cattle to markets
iu Virginia, North and South Carolina
and Georgia aud to Clnolnnattl in the
days when that city was the great
