lumbia Valley railway baa been fol

out of Kennewick from Caatle Rock to
Major creek thin side of Lyle.
It is along the Columbia valley
where tbe trouble is encountered.
Mrs. 'lbeodore Shopler, who has a
homestead at tbe point this eide of
Major creek, made a contract and her
father, T. Wyers, is ready to close.
He has a lease on school laud this
aide. The Hue holdings of Mrs. Warn

proposed right of way will use over
seven acres, say at $fU) an acre would

in the tame position, but will not be
injured as bbdly as Mr. Warner. D.

than tbe others.
J. P. Kgau has so far been the only
bolder who baa made a price. Mr.
Upright told me that Egau had con
sented to close on a basis of $fU0 per
acre. S. C. Zieglur, who will be tbe
heavy loser if the old survey is followed,-
has atked $7,.r)U0. C. D. Moore

Then it is all done to Vancouver.
Summing it pll up, the right of way

are loath to believe that any snob laud
exists. Then on the other baud, there
are many who raise the minute there
is railroad talk. 1 am forced to loave
tbe situation as it ia and wait until
tbe otticials of the load make a care

is up to the legi 1 department. I did
not make it as an olfer. but asked
Mr. Zieglcr if he would consider
81.0U0 per acre. Others beside me
will have to decide this question."
Mr. Upright and N. W. Bethel, the
chief engineer and general manager,
who baa been in the section with hie
corns looking tho survey over and try
iug to find a way around the land and
preparing an estimate of the cost per
mile of construction, were noncom

Xoles From the Kiiterjtrlse.
Mrs. Lev. is received a letter from
Mrs. Couc'on the other day in which
she states thi.t the iamily is now set
tied in San Diego, Cal. They like
their new hrmo. They speak of the
city possestii.g h semi-tropical climate
which seems to mit Mr. Condon very
agreeably. His health has improved
since settling there.
Charles Waters received 10,000 trout
fry from the government hatchery at
Oregon City last lhursday nignt and
on Friday morning took them out to
KaHlesnako creek and the small lakes
noi tli of Trout Lake and planted them.
Tbe old gentleman had to stay up all
night in Hood Hirer with his fish and
keep fresh water on them, which was
quite a stunt for a in n K5 years old,
but he is too enthusiastic in bis work
for it to have any la-iting effect on bis
health. There will be some tine fish
ing in those lakes now iu a few years,
and that region will be more popular
with tourists than ever.
Frank Thornton baa bought the
one-third interest of bis brother,
Moses E. Thornton, in tho mining
claim on McCoy creek known as the
Elkboru claim, consideration $200.
A. G. Amea and Mike Thornton are
the other two ownors of this property.
Frank has sold bis interest on tbe
mountain, including his lease of the
Hendeson place, to johu Leland Heu
dersou, of Hood Kiver, aud will now
devote bis time to the mining propo
sition. The boys are preparing to go
into tbe mines in the uear future to
do development work, and if there is
anything in the mine they propose to
get it out. Frank Thornton believes
there is a big thing in tbe Elkborn,
and tbat all it needs is development
to becoiuo a paying property.

CITY WILL PAY
The city of Hood River will refund
to the four former saloon men the
amount of tbe unexpired licenses,
made invalid by tbe local option elec
tion last November. Tbe saloon men
put in claims against tbe city dating
from tbe first day of January, when
tbe prohibition order from tbe county
court went into effect, but the coun
cil Monday night decided to allow all
of them only fA0 each, refusing to
grant tbe rebate for the six weeks they
kept open after tbe first of January.
J. Ll Morrison had tiled a claim
against the city amounting to $322.46.
This included interest since January
P. r. Fouts, who secured a judg
ment against the city some time ago,
for refusal to pay the rebate when he
asked for it, had a bill against the
city,. which was U. K.M and returned
for tbe order of tbe court showing
judgment, lt will be paid in full on
receipt of the same by the council.
Other bills allowed Monday night
by tbe council were Marshal Olinger's
salary of $50, and 8.1 for C. C. Feck,

We have three things which we expect to attain by being in busi

first is to make money the second to make friends, and the third to
sell the kind of clothes that will enable us to make both. We might be
able to temporarily accomplish the first without the aid of the latter.
You can figure out as well as we can about how long we could keep
things going on such a plan. The right kind of clothes is the essen
tial secret to permanent success. And our object is to see that you
get them. Black & Co.'s clothes fit and wear and hold their perfect
