GRANTS PASS IS WAIT
ING FOR A RAILROAD
Wants Railroad to Crescent City-
Farmers Give Pointers How
It Could Be Secured.
One of the I idlest, yet least de
veloped sections of the Pacific Coast,
is the country between Grants Pass
and Crescent City. Its vast wealth
of copper, gold and other minerals,
aud of timber aud agriculture Is lying
practically undisturbed and all be
cause ot the Jack 01 transportation
facilities. For folly 20 years lias this
transportation problem been under
consideration by parties Interested in
the opening of this, the richest sec
tion of Southern Oregon, yet no rail
road has been built and the prospect
Ib none to encouraging even now.
The trouble has been that no con
certed local effort has been made to
ward having this railroad bnilt, aud
dependence only has been on ontside
capitalists. Railroads are sometimes
secured through this nieaus, but it is
seldom that local lines are built by
capitalists depending on the road
alone for an investment. And where
a community sits down and waits for
a railroad to come to them they
.usually have to wait a long time.
-The quickest ard surest way to get
a railroad that is strictly local in its
field of operation is for the local in
terests to take it up and secure its
construction. Medford wanted a rail
road to develop the Upper Rogne
River couutry and to bring trade to
that town, so its citizens secured tho
right-of-way and put in 35, 000 cash
into the stock of the company aud
through the efforts largely of local
caoitalists at least 25 miles of this
road will be completed this year. A
start will be given that will cause
this railroad to be extended on to
Crater Lake and to Eastern Oregon,
to bring to Medford the tonrnt travel
to the famous lake, aud the trade of
the rich oountry lying to the east of
the Cascade mountains. Klamath
Falls wanted tailroad communication
with the cutside world, so the citizens
of that progressive little town of but
1800 inhabitants, together with the
land owners of that part of Klamath
county adjaceut to- Klamath Falls
completed last week the raising of a
subsidy of 1100,000 to induce Mr.
Weed to extend bis railroad now in
operation from Thrall, on the
Southern Pacific, lo Pokegama. on to
Klamath Falls. Other towns have
had to help themselves to get a rail
road and the probabilities are that if
there is ever a raiload built from
Grants Pass out through Southern
Josephine county it will have to be
accomplished largely through local
effort A recent number of W6rld's
Work tells how the farmers of Ram
sey county, North Dakota, built a rail
road without the aid of outside capi
tal or of borrowed money. Their
manner of procedure aud their success
contains some helpful pointers to
tlioro interested iu having a railroad
built to open up Southern Josephine
These famerrs hauled thoir grain-
often a distance of 2.1 miles to Devil i
Lake, the county sest, through which
the Great Northern Railway passed
It kept the farmers hauling grain all
winter. They asked James J. Hill,
president of the Great Northern rail
way, to build a branch line from
Devil's Lake up through their suc
tion. Mr. Hill said he could not
build. Six of the largest farmers met
at a school house. One of them was
Joseph Kelley. who owned 00 acres
of laud and who hauled his wheat Ift
miles to Devil's, Las". Mr. Kelley
said "If the Gruat Northern won't
build, we will build." And the
farmtra bnilt a railroad 25 miles long.
Tliev asked every farmer whohaoled
grain to Devil's Lake to subscribe.
Some subscribed J5; others t-100.
They raised $.10,000. They sent a
farmer to Duluth to buy ties, another
to St. Paul to boy rails.
A laud promoter was building a
small brauoh line nut of Devil's
Lake to the south, aud they got him
to survcv the road. They ;h red seo
tion hands to lay the track. But they
needed more money. They bought
land ailing the line and laid out three
towns, sold the lots and used the
mnnev lo bur an old engine, a day
i coach, and four boxcars from the
' Great Norheru.
I Then the road was starte-i. It will

j Last vear the road made its expenses;

Hon. A. H. Carson, member for the
First district, which embraces the
Southern Oregon counties, of the
Oregon State Board of Horticulture,
was in Grants Pass Wednesday from
his Rodlands fruit farm on Applegate
Mr. Carson, in addition to growing
largely of other fruits, Is the largest
grape grower in Oregon, he having 31
acres to grapes. Mr. Carson grows
several varieties, but most of bis
vineyard is to Tokays, Emperors and
Black Ferrerras. The Emperor is
similar in size and bright color (o
the Flaming Tokay, but it is a better
keeper aud is a good shipper. The
Ferrerra is a black grape similar
in appearance to the Concord, but ia
better flavored thau that grape, aud is
a fine tablo grape and it has the
further good quality of being a good
Mr. Carson has found grape grow
lug quite as profitable as any other
line of farm product and he will con
tinue planting until he has 100 acres
to grapes. He will plant 20 acres to
grapes this winter and has the 10,000
cuttings rooted aud growing in flue
shape with whioh to do the planting,
Mr. Carson is firm in the belief that
Southern Oregon will become one of
the great grape districts of the United
States, for the soil aud climate are
exceptionally adapted for produoing a
grape of fine texture and flavor. The
failure that so many have made in
tliH grape bnsiuess In Rogue River
Valley Is due to a number of causes
that Mr. Carson states are easily
overcome. The first is to grow the
grape that the market demands, which
is thus the best seller. Plant on suit
able soil, red clay hill land being the
best for grapes, aud elevation
put the vineyard above the frost line
of the low, wot bottom lands. Cul
tivate the vines thoronghly, aud the
dryer the ground the more cultivation
but only on the suface. But in the
picking aud packing la where so many
growers fail, for grapes that are jam
mod into a box and not sorted, graded
aud neatly packed will not sell. Mr.
Carson takes special care that not a
defective or under sized grape gets
into a box and the greatest precau
tion ia taken to pack the grapes so
they will have a uniform and attrao
tive appearance. The boxes are all
labled with bis name and that of his
fruit farm and a person getting a box
of his grapes of a dealer, if pleased
with them, knows what to call for
when more ia wanted. Last fall, as
iu previous years, Mr. Carson was
unable to fill all the ordeis that came
to him for grapes, aud at prices that
were very satisfactory. He thinks
that other growers would have no
difficulty iu finding a profitable mar
ket if they would give more care to
the growiug and the picking aud
packing of their grapes.
As to fie grape crop prospects Mr.
Carson stated that bis vineyard could
not be more promising than it now Is,
aud he has every prospect of a record
breaking yield this year and of the
best quality. His apples, pears and
other fruit Mr. Carson stater
promise a good yield. Iu the dis
charge of bis duties as a member of
the State Board, Commissioner Carson
has visited many of the orchards of
Southern Oregon aud he finds the
fruit prospects about up to the.
average. In some of the orchards
that bore verv heavily last year the j
c rop this year is light, while some j
orchards on low bottom land will
have a small yield owing to late
frosts. Owing to ths large acreage
of new orchards that are coming into
bearing, Commissioner Carson thiuis
that there will be a considerable lo-!
crease iu the shipment of fruit this
fall from Rogue River Valley. The
outlook fot the market is encouraging
and fruitgroweis are likely to make
as much money this year as ars
farmers who will nave other products
to sell. Mr. Carson anticipates that
there will be a large acreage planted
to fruit trees Ibis winter sod the rite
of increase to orchards wilt be ap to

Walter liurch and William Uennett,
from Fairviow near Poitland, arrived
in tlruuts Pass Sunday aud Tuesday
they left for the Urnybaek Mountain
district, going by way of Williams
creek on a prospecting tiip. They
will also visit the Josephine caves
aud get a lot of specimens for the
Lewis aud Clark fair.
Mr. liuruli wits n former resident ol
Josepliino county, coining hero with
his parents iu Mill. In lHSf. he iu
partnership with - Homer llarkuess
undertook to make a remit fur tourists
at the famous Josephine cures,
whioh bad been discovered a few
years previous, that honor being
oiaimi d by Elijah Davidson, of
Missouri Flat. Thu cave was on
unsurveyed laud and iu an almost im
penetrable mountain fastness.
Messrs. fiuruh & llarkuess cut In a
trail to the oavo from Sucker creek in
the spring of 188.1 aud In 1HM0 they cut
another trail from Williams rreek lo
the cave. They located a squat ti r's
claim on the land about thu cave and
built a house for the iiccoiuinndatioii
of touriits. Mr. llarkuess was at
the cave very little and turned the
venture over to Mr. Iiuich, who spent
three summers at the cave. Ue fully
explored overy recess of that under
ground labyrinth and measured ii'n
miles of passageways. He put Iu
mora than a score of ladders from live
to 211 feet iu length to enable access
to bo made to thu various chambers,
for to reach some a descent would
have to be inudu, while to gi t to
others a perpendicular cliff would
have to bo scaled. Among the di
coveries that Mr. Hun h made was a
waterfall of 2:i feet. At another
place was a uilnlatnro of Mt. lined,
that was eight fcut bigli and a per
feet reproduction of that mountain
At its base was a minimum lake but
four feet iu (liamcrtcr. The largest
chamber ho fnuid w.n Hill fei t long
anil fully ItHI feet lo the ceiling
Diamond Hall was thu must hand
some, for Its walls aud roof sparkled
like frost or finely cut glass.
After trying for three years to
buildup a tourist travel to the caves
Mr. Huron gave up thu venture, after
loosing ou it over -!' i I in money and
time. The little louiist travel he
seemed payed iheir bills but he
was not so fortunate with resiih nts
of thu county ninny i f whom vi-i'ed
the caves anil alter l bad shown
them through they would tell him
they would pay later, as tiny were
short of money and that would 0- the
last of it.
The buldlngs anil ladders put in by
Mr. liureh are now badly decayed
and the trail, whthi y l parrahli', is
grown up. r-iuee .,ir i.urin
gave up thu venture no one has tlieil
to make a resort of Him place. 1 he
land is yet held by tint oveinno'ijl,
aud under the law it cannot be ac
quired by an individual, t,.e govern
unlit reserving all natural eurionities
and mineral spruits, though sut h are
leased. This cave, wl.b li is one ol
the largest and graude-it III the win Id.
Is visitud cjt: h suniiin r by u lew
sightseers. Were them a railrojtd to
the vicinity of this cave It .would
attract many persons each yuir,
but the III) iu iln wagon tool ami 10
mile trail from ltaiits I'ass, the
nearest railioad point tolhucavi, is
too much for the average tobiist.
1 he tune will come when some r
sou with money will lea -.n this cave
