CorvalU & Southern Railroad.
Tho Corvalllfi Si Southern Railroad
Company, hoping ati.t confidently cx
jn ctii. tho co-operation asked ol the
citiens along tho lino, recognize the
public interest in what tho company
proposes and thu progres it Ihir made.
Tho company, composed of citizens
holding lurgo tracts of land and other
properties along tho route, was and is
impressed with the fact that a pooplo
who do not protect their own public, in
terest, and develop thuir own resources,
may not expect other people to do ho
lor thorn. Tho old fablo of th quail is
ritill true, wherein she assures hor young
that there if no danger so lonar as the
farmer waits on his neighbors to cut his
wheat, hut taid it was ttmo to move
when sho Haw the f irmer and his sops
grinding their sickles and heard them
Pay, "We will cut our own wheat our
selves." So if wo, redding along tho "West
Side," wish to enjoy the business re
vival and general prosperity prevailing
over tho country, wo must be active in
developing our own territory and its re
Honrc.es. This can only bo douo by co
operating. ... .
President Hayes' expression, "fie
servos hit party host who ervo hiH
country bost." Ih true in business as
well as in politics. In business ha nerves
himself host who servos his community
best for tho timo has arrived that the
drt"rcoof success in any enterprise is
measured by tins number of co-operators
and tho degree of co-operation;
consequently, tho most popular child
born of modern business is tlio"Trust3,"
onoratinc n one.
Wo have gone to tho expense in time
and money of incorporating and organ
izin" ourselves, making surveys, secur
ing "right-of-way and procuring tho
nocouBury capital to lurid tho road. For
this purposo a representative of tho
company visited Now York, consulting
and advising with the "wise men of tho
Ku&t," who have not only all tlio sense,
but also all tho cents. While there ho
cloHod ft contract for building and equip
ping tho C. & S. K. II. with capitalists
possessed of ample means, Rut thosu
Eastern capitalists require some sub
stantial interest to be taken by those
receiving the benefits of the enterprise.
assuring us if those residing in the im
mediate territary and directly interested
in the development of tlio country, shar
ing the beneltts of such developments,
manifest neither interest or faith in tho
enterprise, others can not.
Railroads ore built by tho sale of
stock, bonds, and giving of bubsidies.!
Wo offer no stin k, for tho reason that
wo wish to do all in our power to pro
vent loss; and it is so com mou for the
majority stockholders to impose loss on
thu minority, in fact, this seems to bo
the rule. Neither do we ask any subsi
dies to bo given. Tho Reoperation we
ask is that tho citizens from Oorvallis
south along tho line contribute toward
tho construction of the railroad, canal,
etc., by buying bonds in common with
oilier bond-hollers, and of tho same
kind, viz.: 11 vo percent gohl bonds, so-
cured by first mortgage on tho road.
Or, if satisfactory, we prefer to issue
PAID-UP TIUNHPOKTaTION CHR
TIM CAT KS, for both freight and pas
sengers, the 8amo being transferable,
and may therefore bo used iersonally or
transferred to heavy a'llppcrs.
This plan amounts to you agreeing to
give tho (.'. it S. your patronage to the
amount of your contribution by buying
C. iNs f". mileage, good on rail "or river,
as thu company's plan is to operate
bout on tho river, between Oorvallis
and Portland. ;
Railroads require business, business
demands people, people must havo
homes ami employment; therefore, we
include in the proposition other enter
prises calculated to develop tho country,
ouconrago immigration and furnish em
ployment. Chief among the enterprises,
in iiie muiuiuK u u wuiitt irum lliu
Willamotto River via Junction City to
tlu Long Tom River, which will carry it
by Monroe, ai u may be crrried to Cor
vallia. Tho canal will leave the Willam
etto Just north of the mouth of tho Me
ICoiu.ie, opening up all of tho timber in
thy Cascade -'Mountains on tho Upper
Willamette and its branches. It will
pass through a series of small lakes, and
will hold in absoluto safety 100,000,000
feet of logs. It will crow the 8, V. R. It.
at Junction City, where it also touches
thoC. & 8. It. It., and will empty into
tho Long Tom River, about 2 nlc
northwest of Junction.
A mill locatod at tho Junction on he
canal and Lonjt Tom River, or any
where on the Long Tom wnow tno
litnrtti-in nf th canuf. rnav have floated
to It through the canal billions of feet of
ogs from the Cascade Mountains and
lundrcd of millions of feet on the Long
Tom from the Coast range. -
The fact that a ioint may be lonna so
near the heart of these great timber
belts to w hich timber will lloat down
stream in such quantities in so short a
distance, without the expense of tow
ing, and held tn sucn absolute security,
renders it sucli a strategical point that it
cannot be ignored by lumbermen.
The canal will develop at Monroe and
other points a water power secoud only

est fuel for the flouring mills, fruit
driers, warehouses, etc., now existing,

In order to satisfy Eastern capitalists,
thu comnanv is compelled to ask and
secure options on at least 60,000 acres of
agricultural land along the line, on
which to locate colonists oi cunvreni

of the best euuirrant aeents in the

and the present prices of land are cheap.
We will not receive land listed ingnsr
than present prices. !
We do not ask or recommend any one
to liht all their land for sate, but only a
part, and many who are now liind poor
can list only a part and still Ijald very
Urge tracts of land. What is fcjKxled is
smaller holdings, which meaji more
people and more business. Tjifc com

The company proposes to opwrale its
cars on tho inter-urban plan: making a
number of trips daily, ami offering such
rates, schedules and general accommo
dations as w ill bring the llii(b School at

Corvallis in reach of every homo along
the line, thus giving thoseresiding along

or doctor." v.;. II. Markham, Oencral
Passenger Agent of the Southern Pacific.
Dr. WithycninlHJ, at the Sheridan
Farmeis' Institue, said on the subject
of summer-fallowing: ''The Summer
fallow is expensive, wasteful and en
tirely wrong in principle in a hnmid cli
mate such as wo have in tho Willamette
Valley. In semi-arid regions it is not
so bad, Rinco there is little loss by leach
ing. About five times as much nitrogen
is librated by Summer fallow as the fob
owing wheat crop can utilize. When
the Winter rains come on, this excess of
nitrogen is leached out of the soil and
carried away by the streams. Tho
amount of nitrogen which in this man
ner has gone down the Willamette River
is probably equal in value to the total
production of w heat during the time this
crop has been grown in the Willamotte
"In placo of the Rummer fallow, the
following treatment is recommended:
Plow early in Spring, sow to rapo early
in May. Replow and sow to wheat in
the Fall. Tho next February sow on
the Fall wheat red clover to the. amount
of eight pounds to the acre, with about
150 pounds of hind plaster. Allow the
clover to stand two years ; then break
up and sow to Fall oats or wheat. It is
essential for tho best results in tho pro
duction of clover to sow tho land plaster
not later than April 1." '
