in no way more powerfully than
through their direct contributions to

have uot been achieved by the Forest
Service alone. Ou tho contrary, they
represent also tho needs and sugges

embody constant changes aud adjust

needs. Tho foieat policy of tho Gov

what tho West desired to be. It is a
National policy wider than the bouu

tho interests of any single iudustry.
Of course it cauuot give any set of
men exactly what they would choose.
Undoubtedly tho irrigator would of

more. Tho lumberman would like to
cut more timber, tho settler aud the
miner would often liko him to cut less.

Tho o.iitor or the Klamath Fulls Re
publican gleaned some important rail
road news from prominent railroad
men w ho visited Klamath Falls recent
ly and regardless of the denial of an in
terested party, which denials are al
ways forthcoming, all indicatious
seem to substantiate what the Repub
lican outlines aa the future plans of
rait road builders in Lake and Klamath
county, iu Oregon, aud Modoc coun
ty in California. In speaking of the
proposed railroads into Klamath coun
ty, the Republican says:
"A prominent factor in this propos
ed liue to this baisu is the electric
line that ia contemplated to connect
thia city with Whitelake, Merrill, arid
Houan.a, and which ia being pushed
by J. 1). Carroll. Its entrancei nto the
arena haa been comparatively recent.
So recent, that its proposed extension
to Lakeview is not generally known
and positvely denied by Mr. Carroll.
Hut the road is going to be built to
Lakeview, aud it is this proposed ex
teution thut let the ".nt out of the bag.
Wheu tho Portland excursionists were
here, amog their number were several
gentlemen from Portluud, Everett,
Seattle, aud Tacoma. Ostensibly they
availed themselves of the opportunity
to visit thia section with agreeable
companions aud under such circum
stances. The real purpose of their
i vit,it however,
was to seo Mr. Carroll
examine his project, visit various
1 points in the basiu, Lakeview, Hly,
and Alturaa. Their actions aroused
consuleurhle specualtiou at the time,
and investigation produced tho follow
iug resulta :
The N. C. & O which is a recogniz
ed Gould road, and which is now
; building to Alturaa, will be extended
I to Lakeview, where connection will
be made with the Carroll road and
give entrance to the Klamath buaiu.
From Lakeview the road will be ex
tended to Hly. From Hly it will be
buiL to u low pass iu the vicinity of
Diamoud Lake, thence down the Ump
qua valley to Uoseburg aud on to Coos
Hay. The reported control of Corval
lis & F.astern, said to have passed to
the Gould interests, appears to be er
roneous. It is tho Hill clique thut has
beeu figuring iu thia property. The
road ia to be built from Idauuh to
Ontario, with a branch to Lakeview
via Harney, where it will mnke conuec
tions with the Western Pacific uud
tho Carroll road. Connected w itu this
proposed extension of the Northern
Pacific is tho present activity of the
Weyerhaeuser lumber company in this
section. Tho president and many of
the prinicpal stockholders of thia great
corporation uro diroctors or stock
holders iu tho Northern Pacific The
inimenso Walker holdings in te North
era part of thia county and exteudiug
ou to Priueville, have boeu either
pooled with or purchased by tho Wey
erhaeuset company. A further plan
is to exteud the Klamath Lake road to
this city, where, through tho Carroll
road it can secure uu outlet to aud
connection with the Western Pacific
and Northern Pacific,
Mr. Carroll wan iu the city Tueaday
afternoon for a brief period and when
questioned in regard to this propo.-od
association of hia enterprise with that
of Gould, and Mill, he most emphati
cally denied it. He further denied
that an extension of hia line to Lake
view was contemplated. However,
when it was pointed out to him that
the movements of hia recent visitors
were well known aud that, it had been
positively stated by those'who aught
t o Ite in h position to know, thut hia
line would lo extended to Lakeview,
he appeared somewhat embarrassed,
aud then hedged behind his old state
ment "1 know absolutely nothing a
bout it and have not a word to say".
In view of hit determination to be
silent, it was not possible to ascertain
why Mr. Swartout of Everett made
such a close examination of his pro
posed route and plans, aud visited lily,
Lakeview, and Alturaa. Why Mr.
Hew itt, reputed to be Washington's I
richest resident, did neary the same
thing. Why that Washington engineer
was here for the purpose of making an
examination of the country and why
that examination extended to Lake
view and the Diamond lake country.
These and many other questions of
direct hearing on the question he
declined to answer.
Hut notwithstanding his reticenuc,
that before three jeara roll by this
city will have connection with the
Northern Pacific aud the Western Pa
ciflc railroads.
Plush Plushery.
Plush is just foaming. Haying is in
full blast yet, and will be in this vi
cinity until snow flies. Plenty of hay
plenty of cattle , horses and sheep.
Plenty of generosity and plenty of
good prospects in gold from the mines,
yet the Cedarville Record says there
is nothing out here but wind. Now
who or w hat is this Cedarville Record?
If I am truly informed Cedarville is a
one horse town over here across the
Oregon line iu Modoc County Cal.,
where the branching shadowey Cedar
shakes uot. Where no sweet linnets
sing, but the fierce eagle is king. It
ia u dreury spot It has a one mule
paper called the Record, and a very
poor record at that, and by all ac
counts the Record is run by an uncle
to a mule. Oh what a journalist and
what a desecration on the grand field
of Journalism. I should not wonder if
the disgruntled spirit of Horace Gree
ly and C. A. Dana, aud even the liv
ing Duisy Smith of Lakeview, would

That if the great fire of Frisco or the

The Lakeview Husinesa College
is established, as the name pur

thorough education in business practi

training is apparaut to all and cannot
be overestimated. It enables the
young man or woman to secure easy,
congenial and lucrative employment
with numerous opportunities for pro
motion. The course of study neces
sary to fit one's self for such a posi
tion require little time, ita cost is
moderate and its results are a lifetime
Professors Bigley and Trodden, who
are in charge of the college are recom

An invitation ia extended to the
parents of pupils and to other inter
ested persons to call at auy time for
the inspection of equipment and ob
servation of teachers methods.
The commodious college building is
well lighted and ventilated aud ismod
ern in every lespect. It is furniahed
with all the necessary paraphernalia.
The school year consists of two
terms of five months. The. first term
commences the second Monday in Sep
tember. The course of studies includes the
following subjects: Bookkeeping,Sbort
baud, Typewriting, Correspondence,
Commercial Arithmetic, Rapid Calcu
lation, English Grammer, and Compo
sition, Commercial Law, Civil Gov
ernment, Penmanship, Spelling and
Elocution. While the last named is
not essential to a business education,
nevertheless it is so graceful an accom
pllshment that a knowledge of it is
desirable. Its study is optional with
the pupil.
Several Smith-Premier No. 2. Type
writers of the lates pattern, have been
secured. This machine is one of the
most reliable made. Its clearness of
print, the noiselessness of operation
and the absence of the troublesome
"shift key" are reasons for ita great
Tne Graham system of shorthand, the
system taught at this college combin
es, in a marked degree the two requi
sites of speed and legibility, and is
used by thousands of stenographers
throughout the country.
Attendance duriug oue school term
guarantees proficiency in stenography.
Bookkeeping both single aud double
entry, is taught along the lines laid
down by the Williams aud Rodger
texts. The Budget system is used in
conjuuetiou. Business forms, such as
checks, drafts, notes, bills, receipts,
to., are in actual use by the studeuts,
the work thus becoming simplified and
the Impression more lasting.
The other subjects are taught after .
the most improved methods and abso
lute satisfaction is guaranteed.
The terms for the complete course
are ten dollars per mouth, payable in
advance. Books, blanks and station
ery sufficient for the eutire course may
be procured for a sum not exceeding
fifteen dollais.
Evening School
An evening school will be opened
for the convenience of those who are
unable ti attend during the day. The
course aud terms are the same as stat
ed above.
Pupils are instructed individually.
It has been frequently demonstrated
that woik in classes benefits only the
The rapid learner is retarded, while
the pupil who finds difficulty is, in
a measure, neglected and becomes dis
couraged. Iu this college each pupil
is advanced exactly as his capacity
warrants. This method insures best
results. Special attention is given to
those who are deficient iu the elemen
