Thursday, January II, 1VA, to Mr.

Southern Oregon is now to have a
hospital and sauitarium and it is due
to the progressiveness of Grants Pass
that this long needed institution has
been secured. As conditions have
been.any one seriously hurt or in need
of surgical attention had to be sent
to a hospital in Portland or San Fran
cisco. The long, fatiguing journey
has often of itself caused a long
delay in the recovery of the patient
and in many instances been the
known cause of the death of the in
valid. This journey also enatiled a
big expense as at least one attendant
was always necessary and very fre
quently a physiciau had to accom
pany the patient. Then to this wss
added the heavy charges of the city
hospital and tho big fees of the
operating surgeon. Experience has
demonstrated that the expense of
sending a patient from Gran's Pass or
other Southern Oregon towu to a Port-
laud or San Francisco hospital is sel
dom below 1250 and it is mure often
90 to f'OO and instances have been
known in which the total expenses
have reached $1000. Theu to this bur
den on the family is add- d the separa
tion that has to be endured from the
sick one, who can uot be cheered up
and encouraged during the long,
weary days of the convalescent period
with visits from the home folks and
friends. Southern C regon people
having relatives or friends in a hos
pital at Grants Pass can readily aud
at little expense visit them and take
them home delicacies and new
clothing aud other things.
The Grants Pass General Hospital
now in active operation, aud
though having- accommodations for
but IX patients it is as complete in
every convenience aud comfort as is
the best city hospital. Temporary
quarters have been secured on the
sicoud floor iu the Hansen brick
block, two doors cast of Thomas &
O'Neill's fnruiture store on Fast G
street. The rear section has beeu fit
ted up into two larg, airy,, well
lighted wards, one for men and the
other for women patients. The bed
steads are of the regulation hospital
pattern, white enameled utid readily
kept cleau and this obtains iu both
wards where every precautiou is
taken to have tlte inott perfect sceptic
conditions. The front teeth n of
the floor is also divided into two
rooms. One is a well iurnh'licu ollice
and reoeption room aud the other is
the operating room. This room is
fitted with the latest improved opera
ting table and all surgical appli
ances. Varnished linoleum is on the
floor and the walls are so that they
can be made ahsolntely aeeptic and
oleau. The middle feci ion of the
floor is devoted to lath aud toilet
rooms and fcr wardrobes and storag

Grants Pass is now certain to have
railroad to the Illinois Valley and :
eventually on to the Coast ut Ciesceut
City. .While the route has not teen
definitely settled, yet it is certain that
it will cross Applegate river near V'il
derville and follow up Slate creek mid
across the low diviifc. which with a
2000 foot tunnel and to made on a
grade the heaviest not to exceed 3 1-10.

distance, to Clear cteek, and down that
stream and Deer trees to the Illinois
river. The route would te by Selma
aud Kerby aud at the forks of the II
1 inois river it would I much, one loud
going to the Tatilma smelter and on
to the 1 reston' 1 tak copier district.
Ihe other I rant h would go up the
right folk of (he Illinois and sircts
the divide to rmith river and thioigh
the rich mining aud big timber belt to
Ihere is almost a certainty that a
branch line will le legr.n this J ear
tu leave the maiu line this side of the
Applegate river and follow up that
valley to the famous Blue Ledge cop
jer district and alio tup the gold min
ing district of that valley and the big
bialy of timber that is 011 the foothills
f the Siskiyou mountains. Within
auother year it is quite likely that the
woik w ill be begun of extending a
ranch line down Iingne river to the
Guliie copier and gold mines and to
lower Hoguo river where there is line
colli 1 rnl et ts and a large timl erarca.
Another j nd able brunch line would
be down the III uois riier to the big
copper deposits ot that section.
For J ears this rail mud rojcct 1ms
been under consideration by the nti
aons of Grunts l'ass and each year the
execttlou was that mine company
or capitalists wot-Id bnild tin) road.
I his bote npl eared but little mora of
being realized at the beginning of tho

any previous year for a deuido past.
With blanch roads being built 111 every
section of the Novt Invest, aim me

nstructioj to make trihutav to that
hurtling town the tipper L'ogue river
loiinlry and the Crater Lake tourirt
trulllo, mid now taking up in an en
ergetic milliner the extending .of the
Jacksonville railroad ou to thu Apph-
gate Valley, and eventually on tu the
llllinois Valley, that held to be tho
special trade district of Grunts Push,
thu business men of this city lecniue
coin inccil that it was up to tin 111 to
lake up their mil load projeit and put
it Into 111 tl vitv. This determination.
led to the forming of n local couil liny
and to soliciting stock mid securing
right-of-way mid terminal grounds
for their 1 roposed railroad. 'Ihe r ui

li. G. Smith, II. L. Gilkey, L. I,.

Booth is milking gissl progress in in
terest ing capitalists, wlin are railroad
builders to takejip the rojc t and put
in the roiul. In the meantime, not tu
wait on others, it is imposed to mise
not lesH t tin 11 fi1.! CO in Grunts Puss
and a liberal sum from mine ami tim
ber owners along the route of the road
and from the farmers and otheis who
will profit hy the building of this rail
road. The soliciting committee, which
is composeil of II. L. Ililke), II. C
Kinney, Joseph Moss and I'd Lister,
is having the most eiicimrngiug sneers,
and witli the close ot thin week they
will have fully fo.oo.) subscribed, lis
Ihe result of their first 10 days work.
1 ho soliciting will be continued to
raise Grants l'nsa' o(),fl 0 at the ear
liest dntii possible, after which the
committee will I ring Ihe matter to
the attention of those interested along
the proposed routes of the railroiial.
