uision asdverse to the Harney Valley
Improvement Co., involving nearly
GO, 000 acres of laud iu Harney valley

beeu diverted iuto other chanuels aud
at tho present time there is no mouay

Tbe Examiner Is la receipt of s cir
cular letter sent out by K. E. Fitcb.
wbu Is well known in Lakview, con
taining tbe following information:
The town of Merrill Is coming to tbe
front. A long felt want in Klamath
county is to be established, in tbe
building of a packing plant for handl
ing tbe cattle, bogs and sheep raised In
tbat region. Tbe enterprise is receiv
ing active support from tbe farmers
and cattlemen In that section.
The cattle raisers have been at tbe
mercy of tbe beof trust ot tbls coast
for many yea is, reads the letter.
It is well known that tbe best beef
that goes Into tbe California markets
comes from Klamatb and Lake coun
ties. -
Many cattle raisers have tried to
market their own stock in the pat,
and have found tbat when driven to
Montague, thence shipped on tbe cars
to Sacramento o San Francisco, tbe
shrinkage is so groat and tbe condi
tion of i be catie so materially differ
ent from tbe time of starting as to
make them almost unrecognizable,
and tbe shipper is at tbe mercy of
the buyer, being compelled to take
wbat is offered, ratber than what
Chey are worth.
Tbe shrlnkago on tbe drive to tbe
nearest railroad point la, as every
cattleman knows, quite bad enough;
as often four or five days intervenes
before tbe stock reach tbeir destina
tion, aud in tbe case of cattle, they
must be kept on tbeir feet the entire
distance, otherwise tbe death rate
from being trampled cn adds immense
ly to the loss. Besides, even under
tbe most favorable condditions, the
stock is bruised, sore and fevered, for
in keeping the cattle on their feet
they an goaded and prodded until
their flush is full ot sores and bruises
that takes weeks to heal, and renders
tbe flesh anything but first-class.
Ibese are facts familiar to every cat
tle iaiser, and the same rule applies to
sheep and bogs.
Tbe corporation being organizd is un
der tbe name of tbe Klamath Packing
Company, ad will bo capitalized at
$500,000; sjl stock paid, up' and am
assessable, us It is sold. Tbe pronat
ors of the enterprise have already se
cured a valuable tract of land situated
on Lost river, just at tbe edge of tbe
town, besides other valuable property
in the town.
Tbe company intends to devote tbe
principal part of the coming wiuter to
the handling hogs, turning them into
bacon and bams, for which it has a
ready market right at borne.
It will also give atteutiou to the
muttou industry as well and next
season it will go more largely into cat
tle. Tbe par value of tbe stock of tbe
company is $1 per share. The enter
prise is fostered by such men as E. E.
Fitch, Frank (Jraybael, N. S. Merrill
and C. A. Bunting, of Mori ill, and
Capt J. A. Thompson, and Gen. R.
G. O'Brien, of California.

Supervisor Ingram expects to pat 80
men to work as early as la possible
to get la tbe mountains, and hopee
to have tbe work completed by July

Goose Lake and Fremont forest, and
wherever it is possible to fence up
gaps where sloe travel from one re

Tbe govern mwt will srfAn bet In tbe
eonatructie? of i tytil and to wagon
roads in tbe Fremciit National Forest,
Oregon. Tbe trail will lead from
Timothy Meadow lianser Station to
the top of Bald Mountain, a distance
of 3 miles. Tbe two roads are to
be known as tbe Timothy Meadow
and Forest Wagon Roads. The former
will be extended from tbe termlnua
of the sawmill road leading from Sil
ver Lake and will connect with the
Bald Mountain Trail at Timothy Mea
dow Ranger Station, a distance of ap
proximately four miles. This is a
very important road in that it will
give access to the Timothy Meadow
Ranger Station, which is one of the
most important headquarters in the
Fremont National Forest owing to
the fact that it is situated on top of a
mountain with an altitude of 80.0CO
feet from which the entiie Forest can
be seen.
.The proposed Fremont Forest Road
will run from the sawmill road near
Silver Lake and run in a generally
southerly direction to its in tei section
rfith tbe proposed Forest Koad across
Goose Lake National Forest.
This road will be 37 miles in length
and will tap a heavily timbered and
grazing country and will connect five
Ranger Stations. It will be of great
assistance to stockmen io gettign sup
plies to their camps and will shorten
tbe distance between Silver Lake andr
Lakeview by ten miles.
