In the August number of the Pa
cific Northwest, published in Tort
land by Philip S. Bates, Is a general
wrlto-up of some of the inland coun
ties of the eastern part of the state,
also a map showing the "Heart of
Oregon" without a rvllroad. In
i this "Heart of Oregon" there Is
, 6hown 5C.000 square miles of terri
tory absolutely without railroad fa
cilities, and comprising some, of the
richest soil to be found under the
sun. Mr. Bates recently made a trip
through Lake aud other Eastern
Oregon counties and knows what he
is talking about. He scores the
Portland wholesaler for allowing
the trade of this vast inland empire
to go to San Francisco, when the
conditions could be made more favor
able for it to go to Portland, where
it belongs. Mr. Ba tes' article is to
voluminous for us to undertake to
republish, but some of his language
can be given:
"Throughout the vast interior sec
tion of Oregon comprising the south
ern part of Crook aud all of Lake
and Klamath Counties, a condition
in trade affairs exists unheard of in
auy other section of the United
States. Vast in its rea, full tooveri
flowing in all the resources of which
our State abounds, aud settled with
a class of people with ambition
that the future will see realized in
the shape of the wealthiest popula
tion in any like area la Oregon, yet
their Interests are allowed to foster
themselves, as far as any help or in'-
ducements from the wholesale trade;
of Portland are couccrned. Thc peo
ple In this great sectlou of Oregon

you go you find the California trav 1
eliug man, California products stare,

Then again he says: "California
has the same vicissitudes and trials
to overcome that Portland would
have in going after the business.

Struck Water at 90 Feet.
Mr. W. E. Burke, manager of the
Portland Co., which tiled upon a
large tract of desert laud In Harney
county under the Carey act, has,
after a series of unsuccessful attempts
to put water on the land by means
of an immense pumping plant, been
rewarded. lie lias one well 00 feet
deep that lie estimates will furnish
1000 gallons a minute for his big
pumping plant. The water, when
undist urbed, comes wit hill eight
feet of the top of the ground. Ho
estimates that the pumps will lower
the water about '20 to 2.1 feet, whero
it will remain. Tills amount of
water Is suflicicnt to irrigate a large
tract of land. Mr. Burke has met,
up to now, discouragement on till
sides, lie Is located on one of the
best tracts of land In the .sagebrush
district of the state.
