J. II. AUSTIN,
The Courier is la receipt of the
following communication, a copy of
which has been sent to each of the
papers in Oregon, that is being sent
oat by a committee of farmers livina
along the Barlow toll road, who are
seeking to have the state boy the road
and make it free to the public. To
that end they have secured the sub
mission of the question at the June
election for the voters of Oregon to de
cide as to whether this one of the last
toll roads in Oregon shall be opened to
the public or remain a barrier to
traffic between Eastern and Western
Welches, Clackamas County, Ore.,
May 15, 100ft.
Editor Rogue River Courier.
Donrtfir: There has been uo dis-
otisflioQ in the Oregon press of the
law which is to be voted on next
June, abolishing the Barlow Toll
Road and providing for its purchase
by the state and its conversion into a
free pablio highway.
The farmers who live along thi
road and who have to pay the tolls
circulate the petitions to get this law
on the ballot, but have do money left
with which to make a campaign.
We mast, therefore, rely upon the
newspapers of the state for a discus
sion of the matter, and believe that
the entire community will lympathlze
with as in our effort. We therefore
write yon an explanation of the situa
tion. The Btrlow Road orossei the Cas
cade Mountains just sooth of Mt
Hood. There is no other road be
tween it and the Columbia river on
the north, and not for 100 miles to the
south. If you want to cross the Cas
cades you rount travel over the Bar
low road and pay toll.
The Barlow road is a strip of land
00 fiiet wide and nearly 70 miles long.
The owners hold it nuder a grant
made 40 years ago by the federal
government. Their right to charge
toll has been upheld by the supreme

tributary to this road, have to pay
toll on every head of sheep or cattle
they drive to PortlanJ. They have to
pay $3 every time they cross the
moautalns in a wagon. There is uo
other road crossing the Cascades.
Every immigrant wagun must pay

Willamette Valley to settle in Eastern
Oregon (and there are lots of them)
must pay f'i on his little grist of fur
The owuers of the Barlow road did
not initiate the law abolishing the
! tolls and providing for the purchase of
: the road. They did not even know
; it was to be done. They agreed a
year ago with onr representative to
sell the road for a certain price. Wi
tht-u initiated the law ourselves and
i rained the money to circulate' the p-
i titious. The owuers of the road, I
nudorxtand, do not want now to ael
the road at the price agreed ou, f34,
000, but they will be compelled to sell
if the law passes, as we 'hold their
: agreement If the state" does uot boy
I the road next June, we "will uevar
have another chance to boy the road
for twice this aiuonut of money. Nor
could it be built over again for lUXl"
There is uo" way to get rid of this
toll road exoept to boy It. i As the
Brow, ii wm Decooie an Im
mensely valuable piece of property.
Is Ave years when this country is
thickly settled It will he worth a
fortune to own the only pass across
the Cascades and to have the right to
charge toll on it And the state will
have to buy it sooner oi later.
The farmers cannot buy the road
themselves. There is no reason why
they should. The road is a great
state highway the same as the old
Dalles wagon road was. The legisla
ture appropriated several thousand
dollars to build the Dalles wagon road.
No one would complain if the state
were to begin to build a new highway
over the Cascades at a cost of at least
We hope the Oregon press, which
is usually ready to help the common
people, will help the unfortunate
farmers oat in this matter by publish
ing this explanation. We have got to
get rid of this toll road. Its existence
is a hindrance to the growth of all
central Oregon. The state should
help us and it will never have a bet
ter chance, nor as good a chance, as
now. We have no money with which
to make a campaign, and will have to
depeud entirely on the merit of our
case. Yours respectfollv,
O. W. KERN
Chairman of Farmers' Committee.

Editor Courier I would like to
submit some facta concerning the
proposed sale of the Barlow toll road
to the State of Oregon for $24,000. I
believe it should be voted down
It is not worth the money. The
promoters have an option on the road
from the owners for fSOOO and will
make $10,iKHi, if they cau sell it to
the state. No farmers in Clackmag
county are obliged to pay a toll to get
their products to market. Very few
farmers live near the road. The
seven miles of toll road between the
mountains and the end of the public
road was offered to Clackamas county
as a free gift about three years ago
and refused. No provision is made
in the law for an examination of the
title of the alleged owuers, nor re
quiring the title to be free from in
cumbrances. Ihe-e is very little
travel on this road. I drove over the
road across the mountains and back
seven years ago and did not meet au
average of one team a day.

The train is made op of baggage
car and oaohea, and stops at all
poiuta in both directions so as to ac
commodate looal travel as much as
possible. The lightneM of the train,
however, permits it to run at a high
rate of speed between stations, so that
even with the stops, good time is had.
There are many beautiful places
aloug the river, such as Rooster Rock.
Latourele, MultuoinahFalla, Bonne
ville, at which a day's outing and
picnio oan be enjoyed to the nttermont
and this new service make it possible
to take such outings, whereas, in the
past, when the service has been per
formed by the heavy through trains, it
has not been possible to do this.
Columbia Southern passengers in
tead of waiting at Biggs, which is
unattractive, are taken to The Dalle
promptly where they await the train
for Portland, coming in on Mo. 1, as
at present, or taking the local as they
