trict Is clearly shown in the liuoy
niii'V of spirit which chnrni'toriifei
'oinei snt ion gcnci-ully nboiit the new
civ oi progress and prosperity that it
will nt onee prodnee. Those who enn
liot discern this prospect ato either
maliciously perverse or pitifully ir
iiorant of the conditions of the busi-
1 Jiecs dorinaney that prevails.
The project is guiiprnlly diseused
in connection with tho well-defined
iuipoo to extend the line with all
iossibla baste to the coast at Kureka,
on Humboldt bay. Alrond tint ic
oit i current that an effort will he
made at once to bond the coimtie of
northern California for the purpose of
promoting such an itonton. That
is n proposition which the Northern
California and Southern Oregon Dc
M'topnionl association, foimeil at
Yrcka In-t IVhrunrv bv nil of the
counties eonceined in both states, will
Terminal Hate-, for .Moilfonl,
The o.vtension of the line from the
lllue Lodge legion down the Klnmath
river to Humboldt bav fill give torm
i iiml rates to Rogue IJivcr valley. TluU
alone, so far n .bickson am .loneph
ine coiUities ale concerned, would jus
tify tho construction of (he line. While
Siskiyou and Shasta "counties arc
Mr deeply intcicstcd, Tiinity and
Humboldt counties ale very much
alhc to the benefits that will accrue
to them niul their immciwe ieources
by the extension of the line to deep
water. In addition to giently reduced
freight rales, it will give them the
mean-, bo long de-iied, to develop
millions of dollars' worth of natural
le-ources tributary to the line. It will
open nit mi empire of raw materials
for which, in every instance, the market-,
of tlio world are clamoring to
day. It ttpjM'nr to be the purpose of
Wioo interested in the (mints Pass-Crecont-City
railroad to drive that
line to deep water at the latter eity
as rapidly as Kihle. That will giv'a
the entiru Kogite Iier vnlley two
shott auts to the sen. That i.tupeu
doii iiuMintnw is sclf-eiident.
Tonnage Itoyoud Coiuptitatlon,
Kflilrond men, mining men, lumbet
neu Hid fruit men are nil agreed that
the intercuts of either department of
opiMirtuniiy fully justify the con
struction of a mil i end to the lllue
Ledge. The one big mine alone, .Mr.
Townu's propel ty, the operntion of
which on the lmi of the plan outlined
by its owner in recent eorresondenee
will menu a imyroll for labor and sup
! plies .TllllO.OOO annually, justifies
the building of the line. Operation of
other mino. in that vatt district will
supply a tonnage for generations that
is be.vnnd computation.
The oo-l of labor and supplies nee
chsar.v in handling the fiO.OOO.nflO feet
of lumber for fifty yeurs i csluiiatcil
by imnbermen at ((),00o' a year.
Tlmf al.me jiulities it railroad into
that territory. Th tVrtiluu-r re
sotirre will be found to be i-qually
huge in uiillious of tons nnd millions
of dollsis. This, without anv other
item uf tonnage, Mould warrant the
construction of luilnmd to that re
gion. In addition to these, then are other
vastly iiiiMi1aut resotues that such
' u lino will develop, many of which lie
in our own lx'uutitul and fertile vol-

The primary purpose, therefore, at

LONDON. M.. 2.'.. Premier As
ipiith took the houo of commons by
surprise thi utteruoou in utukiug his
e.xpeeted statement on Irish affairs.
He diluted hi sHcch not so much
to the rebullion and the muuiter in
which the government dealt with it, as
it was thought he would do, as to
mnking nil npHal for settlement of
the Irish ptoblcm b agicemeut among
tho Irish leaders. In (hi connection
the premier announced that David
l.loyd-deorge, minister of munitions,
had undertaken nt the reipicst of the
cabinet to negotiate between the con
tending Irish parlies. He asked that
in the meantime the mutter should not
be debaled in the house.
Referring to the sacrifices that
Irishmen hud made in behalf of (he
llritisli einpite during the present wur,
Mr. Asipiith aid:
"Could we, who represent flrent
Hiitnin, or could they, who lepieseut
Ireland, tolerate the prosX)ct (but
when this war wn over nnd when wti
bad b. our joint efforts and sacri
fices, a we had lucd and believed
we should, achieve our end at homo
Irishmen should h arrayed against
one another in the most tingic and
most debasing of ull eonfliols- inter
necine domestic strife.
"I say to the house of commons,
to the country and to the empite that
the thought is inconceivable. It eau
never be, for it would mean confes
sion of bankruptcy, wot only of
statesmanship, but of patriotism."
Referring to the home rule bill, Mr.
"No one .-o far a I know has ever
desired or contrmihitci its cocrchc
application h one et of Irishmen
agniu-t nil. .llier."
