To the People-
Are )ou going to le Indifferent
about the proposed railroad to ttio
Hint) Ledge mine? Just atop and
eoinlder for a, moment what thin road
would mean to Medford. Kor yeara
wo have heard the cry that all tills
town needs to renew the old-time
prosperity Is a road to the lllue
Lodge. IHiubtless some of you re
womber hat effect It had upon the
town when the mines were in opera
tion a few jeara ago. Mr. Hullla
a Braes to put several hundred men
to work Immediately to build the
road. Mr. Towne, owner of tho lllue
Lodge mine, guarantees to mine and
flhlp at least ISO tone of ore per
day, benlnnliiK Immediately upon the
completion of the road. Thla would
mean several hundred more wen em
ployed. Uesldea this there are a
number of other mines In the same
district that are only awaiting for
transportation to be developed and
"commence shipment. Sulphur in large
quantities Is to be Had and the re
fuse from these mines is Ideal as a
fertiliser. Numerous other prod
ucts can be mined and shipped suu
eessfully. Timber of the very best
quality is awaiting transportation to
Mills. Without a doubt large lumber
mills -would be established In Med
ford at once. How shall we get all
this Answer: A road to the Hlue
Ledge mine.
What Is lUypiiml of Mcdfortl,
Man Its credit to Mr. Dullls to the
extent of 1300,000 In other werds:
Vote a bond Issue of $300,000. The
proceeds to be used lu building a
railroad toward the Hlue Ledge as
far as this amount will build. Mr
Hullls is agreeing to build the rent
of the road himself. lie also agrees
to lease the city's part of the road for
g sufficient amount to pay all interna
on the bonds, taxes, insurance, and.
la fact, all expenses connected then -
with. 80 that Medford will not ' (
called upon to par additional tar-j
to take care of the Interest and oth. r
spenaos. Mr. Bullls also agree-, 1?
the end of five years to bay the r . 1

ANSWERS
MEDYNSK
RAILROAD
To the Kdltor
I was surprised to rea'd former
councilman Mr F. McdynskTa arti
cle expressing his views regarding
the bonding of a railroad for the city
of Medford for the purposo of de
veloping the country adjacent to this
city which lends to the lllue Lodge
mines.
The Pacific & Eastern railroad is
not a iMtying proposition simply he-
cause such men as ho, who aio sup
posed to have the capital and the
Interest and the welfare of tho com
munity at heart are so short sight
ed as not to know that while tho
railroad Is In operation, and tho fa
calltles for making It a paying prop
osltlon aro on hand, the) do not take
advantage or them, and manufacture
and utilize the timber, whereby the
railroad would derive a rovonuo suf
ficient to pay the operating expenses.
Hoes Mr. Medynskl expect the rail
road company to go Into tho lumber
business? Why does he not take a
chance with other men llko him who
have tho capital and build snwnillls?
Then the railroad would pay.
Mr. Medynskl talks about tho own
ers or the Illuo Ledge building a rail
road. I would ask him whether tho
"Hohtall" mine, which has been op
erating for sixty years in Central
City, Colorado, built their railroad'
.Vol Hut when the railroad was built
the mines or Hlackhnwk, Novadavllle
and Idaho Springs wero opened up
and were reeders for this road.
When Stratton struck tho Inde
pendence and Cold Hill, now Orlpplo
Creek, there was 110 railroad, and tho
mining company did not build It.
When Tabor struck the Little Pitts
burg In California Uulch at Loudvlllo
thoro was no railroad there. Did tho
mining company build that road? No.
When the mines wero struck at
Silver Cliff. Querldn and Hoseta tho
railroad went as far as Canyon City,
but whon those mlnos wero struck
the railroad was extended to Silver
Cliff, and not dono by tho mining
company.
iDid tho mining companies build
the road from Tekoa to the Coour
d'Alonos, which tapped tho mines of
Wardner. Wallace, Hurke and Mul
len? Did the mining companies build
th road to Murray, Idaho? No!
Did the mining companies build the
toad rrom Spokane to ltosslaud.
which tapped tho mines of Hritlsh
Columbia? No!
The only mining companies that I
know of that ever built their own
railroad were the Quggenhelms on
the big copper properties In Alaska,
and they built a line to tho coast,
and had no other road to pay toll to.
It seems to me that If Mr. Medyn
skl would stop to think he would
come to the conclusion that were It
not for the fact that the Hlue 1edge
mine was developed that hla Income
fiom the realty he owns In this city
would not bo one-quarter of what It
has been, and even If he had to pay
his pro rata of the Interest on the
bonds that the olty of Mwlford would
have to pay, which I am sine will not
be the case. It would not be 5 per
cent of the monetnrv benefits he has
already received In Income through
the development of the Hlue Ledge.
Were It not for the operation during
the course of the opening of this
mine, the city of Medford today would
not b much larger than the adja
cent town of Central Point.
Some twenty-five years ago two
ft lends of mine, named Cleorge Hoggs,
former city treasurer of Tacoma
and Judge W. II. Heed, of the same
place, came to this country with a
view of Investing, and on their re
turn they reported that while the
country was rich la resources, the
natives refused to glvo them any In
formation, and In fact discouraged
them from being Interested In the
country, as they seemed to be afraid
they would take something from them
and they left here disgusted. As far
as I am peraonally concerned I wag
encouraged to become financially In
terested la this section through rep
resentations made to roe by Dr J. V
Hdd and through blm. mself and
friends have tiixealed over $lo0.0ft

The mnkers of the highest-priced cigars
men who receive as much 11s 50 cents
for a single cigar favor the square-end
shape. Why?
Because the square -end shape yields
the highest percentage of smooth -burning,

why we mako tho OWL in the square

Undaunted by threatening weather
conditions, a good sized group of
Medford Grlrzllcs yesterday mado the
ascent of Haldy, the foothill to tho
east of Phoenix. Tho trip was made
on foot from Main and Central streets
to the summit, mid then down tho op
posllo slope to Phoenix, a total dis
tance of about fourteen mllos. At
Phoenix a bus awaited tho travolors
for the homo stretch. The first lap
ended In a natural park 400 feet from
Unldy's summit, which has been
dubbed by tho Oriizlles Camp III
Jinks. Thero luncheon was spread
mid huge pots of the far-tamod driz
zly coffee was browed over the camp
fire. Appotltes sharpened by tho tang
of the morning air nnd by tho stimu
lating oxcrclso were finally ap
peased, and after nn hour of relax
ation tho flnnl ascent of tho summit
was mado. Vrom this lofly height
tho hikers wero reworded with such
n magnificent panorama of tho valloy
ns Is rarely surpassed.
Tho descent led through a region
of Intonso geological interest, tho
marvelous caves and natural stone
castles of Qulgley Rocks being ex
plored and examined.
Credit for tho bucccss of tho dny's
outing Is largely duo to tho efforts
or tho committee, Mr. and Mrs. Mc
Keo nnd Mr. and Mrs. Huncc.
Yesterday's trip was In a measure
a warming up for the conquest of
Grizzly ponk, to bo mado next Sun
doy. All members aro required to
attain this height to qualify for full
membership In tho drizzly society.
All aro urgently Invited to swell tho
crowd on this occasion, nnd thoso In

chairman of tho commlttco for that
trip, Colo Holmes.
