northwest that llarrtman and II ill
have got together and will at once
allow work to be startod ou the much
talked of line of railroad from Kiparia,
Whhi., to LewiHton, along the north

llingon is a-tremble with agitation.
The people who have watched and
waited for the coming of a railroad or
something that would tend to give
positive assurance are holding jollifi
cation meetings and shaking bands
with one another.
Theodore Suksdorf and his brothers
are wearing broad smiles these days
and the old pioneers who have scanned
the mountains and the rivers for hos
tile Indians are now brushing the
brims of the bats buck and looking
down the river bank along the pro
posed route of the new road. There
is no quostion but what the Harriman
system will soon have two competitors
In the transportation business between
Portland aud the east. The Milwau
kee road Is beading this way, and the
extension Is being pushed from Cham
berlain, South Dakota, with tremen
dous energy. As soon as this road
enters the territory now under a flag
of truce between the Harriman and
Hill forces, the armistice will tie at an
end. The Hill roads will have to
light Independently for the business
or l)e worsted by the Mllwaukoe.
Utlloial announcement was made re
cently by President Karling regarding
construction of the line from Cham
berlain to the Hills, but he did not
disclose the oollossul plans of the com
pany, lint It is as certain as anything
ran be in this world that the Milwau
kee will have a road completed to the
Paclflo coast as soon as rails can be
laid over the route that has been se
luctod for it. Several routes were sur
veyed. 1 am unable to say which will
be followed. Hut it la ridiculous to
doubt the clear purpose of the com
pany. In the engineering department
of tho road it is now common knowl
edge. The road will tap the oil and
coal fields of Wyoming, although the
main line will not necessarily enter
The route will, in all likelihood,
skirt the north boundary of Yellow
stone Park, pass through southern
Montana along a fork of the Wisdom
rlvor, entor Idaho through the Lolo
pass In the Bitter Hoot mountains,
come down the north bank of the Col
umbia and cross the river over Its own
bridge, aud enter Portland over the
terminals of the Oregon Water Power
& Hallway company.
It Is an assured fact that the direc
tory has voted to build to Portland
aud that (he gigautio undertaking Is
uudor way, and evory modern mot hod
aud machine has been brought into
action to rush the ooustruction work.
Ho soou there is visions in the little
towu that has been dormant for some
time that a new city is to spring up.
Saturday a stranger from Portland was
ondoavoring to secure a lease ou the
large Thomas store building, but fullod
owing to tho fact that the owner would
not lease for a term of years. A new
wagon and blacksmith shop is to open,
a meat market will be opened this
weok, and a barber is coming and Ed
Suksdorf, the proprietor of the Maple
Ilotol, Is making great preparations
to take care of the crowds that will tie
attracted by the new road.
Ed Suksdorf has many flue lots In
the city that be is offering for sale aud
be told me last wek that many had
been optioned as a result of the pub
licity given the proposed new road.
P. Tamos will put on bis new stage
line this week making the Trout Lake
country every other day. Hereafter
idl boats will stop aud Hingen will be
come lively. There is no quostion
but what it is the prettiest spot ou the
Columbia river. Most of tho bind Is
as nature left it, here aud there a tree
only. No finer town site was ever laid
out by experienced engineers.
The travel of visitors this year has
been large. It is an ideal spot and is
being takon advantage of by all who
appreciate a nice, lieautiful pines to
go to. C.
Found a Cure for Dyspepsia.
Mrs. S. Lindsay, of Fort William
Ontaria, Canada, who has sufli-ivd
quite a number of years from dyspr puis
and great pains in the stomach, was
advised by her druggist to take Cham
berlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets.
She did so and says, "I find that they
have done me a great deal of good. I
have never bad any sutlering since 1
began using them." If troubled with
dystonia or indigestion why net take
these Tablets, get well and stay well?

BRING MONEY HERE
C. D. Nlckulsen, formerly of this
city, writes the following letter to
Koswell Shelley, the (ilaoier's corres
pondent from Odull:
"I have noticed your articles in the
Glacier from time to time in reference
to starting a creamery in Hood Kiver.
1 am a property owner in Hood Kiver
valley, and for this reason 1 am es

town where we have a creamory und
I am of the conviction that a creamery
In Hood Kiver would help Hood Kiver
valley more than any other one Insti
tution that could lie established there.
It brings in outside money and dis
tributes it so nicely among the farm
ers and gives them a source of constant
revenue. Hood Kiver Is an ideal place
for a creamery. The one hero is run
on the co-poerative plan. It Is owned
by the patrons and is a flnanciul suc
cess. The manager here is a practical
butter maker and a splendid gentle
man. I have been talking to hi in
about Hood River with its opportuni
ties and am sure he would come and
undertake the work If he could get the
oo-operation of the farmers there. You
could never get a morn reliable and
successful man to undertake it. His
butter shipment today amounted to
(KHJO.OO. Farmers here are getting as
high as till net profit per oow per
"A creamory would be worth a great
doal more to Hood Kiver than a wool
en mill or flour mill, because it con
sumes and creates a demand for a
strictly home product.
"JNow, Mr. Shelley, 1 wish you
could do something to consummate
the plant. I should be glad to put
you in correspondence with him, if
you could be interested. It does not
require a fortune to build a plant, and
1 am sure that many farmers would in
terest themselves. I should be glad
to bear from you in any event. 1 am
a brother of j. K. Nlckelsen in Hood
Kiver. I presume this will be refer
ence guftlcient as to my Identity. A
creamery in Hood Kiver cannot fail."
