Sain Says Name Crook-
ed Creek Valley Is
a Misnomer
Summer Luke Dyke, Vaisley, Oreg
on. Jan. 21. (To the editor) I have
received many inquiries from people
who want to know if I found the watch
I lost tnc day Mr. Mallery and I stop
ped to take photographs on Crooked
crenk. and one of these comes from as
far as Lawrence, Kansas. J. L. Rat
lifT writes from that city, saying he is
the owner of two 40-a ere tracts in that
section. He alao wished to know the
length and width of the valley. Is
the land good for farming? Is the
valley settled? 1b there any prospect
of a railroad?
First let me say Mr. Moss found
my watch on the return trip. Next 1
would like to suggest that we change
the name of Crooked Creek to ChHndlcr
vallev. Mv principal reason for this
iB that the old name detracts from the
commercial importance of one of the
prettieht end most fertile valleys in
the state of Oregon.
Crooked creek is u misnomer; it sig
nifies nothing. The valley is a
straight line for eighteen miles, and
besides Crook oounty bus already ap
propiated the name of Crooked to ore
of ita streams.
I am indebted to Dr. Duly for the
name of Chandler Valley, or ruther the
two of ua devieed it together. What
could be more appropriate t an 1 1 is
tribute to an old settler who has lived
in this valley fortv years? In his home
stands the Jim Hill silver cup for the
best general farm display in the inter
mountain country, and the products
were all grown in ChaniWer Valley.
Chandler Valley la bound to become
'celebrated as offering the most avail
able route for a north and south rail
road through Antlers pass. To mv
I mind the prospects for this railroad
I are very bright.
I The ptople I am representing have
'appropriated all the surplus flood
water in Chandler Vulley. Our cngin
j eers will make the surveys and esti
'mates next month, and if the expend
'la warranted we will build iittonge

Reported That Hill Will
Enter San Fran
cisco Soon
More railroad talk that la worthy of
reading la In the following Interview
which appear in the Lassen Advo
ete. In conversation with Issan Knoch,
who came up from the city Mondav,
It I learned that agent and higher
ocffiial of the Western Facilie a well,
are completely disgusted with con
dition aljng the line of that road.
Mr. Knoch had seme tal ' with one who
is in a position to know and from him
received information that Mill ia com
ing down through this section aoon,
and the logical conclusion ia that the
Western Pacific, disgusted and crippled
by Ita expensive "sccnla joute"
through I'lumas uountv, will meet the
northern road Bot.e where in Honey
Lake valley. Hill may be depended
upon to hnd a way when he get ready
to build, and from certain indication
the chances seem to favor the entrance
into Honey Lake valley down the Fiute
creek. The Western Pacific cut-off
will give him as direct a route to San
Franuscs from the point of connection
as he could find anywhere, and permit
him to get to San Francisco much
quicker thin he could by goinjT to
Doyle over the narrow gJugo lines to
a connection at that point.
Accldentaly Kills a Silver
G rey Fox N ear
Silver Lake
Silver Lake Leader: One night last
week, at the sawmill. Jack Embody
! was awakened by the howling of coy
! otes and the barking cf dogs, tbey
kept up such a race that he finally be
came so disgusted that he got up and
opened the. w in. low and took a shot at
the bunch, which was congregated
about 100 yards distant. All hut one
of tne marauders quickly dispressed
and Jack went baca to bed and peace
ful slumbers. In the morning he
went out to see what he had killed.
He found it was a dark gray animal
different from anything he had ever
seen. Several of the mill hands -had
gathered around and were inspecting
the strange animal, finally one of them
offered Jack S10 for the pelt, which
wai promptly refuted. Someone In
the crowd pronounced it a silver grav
fox, which proved to be correct. Jack
is a luckv fell w, as the silver gray
fox, ia worth about $1,000 at the pres
ent lime. There is ulso a gooJ moral
to, this storv shoot at all the howiing
dogs around at night, you may get a
silver, gray fox or you may kill a
worthless cur.

Judge B. Daly Suggests Highway Legislation
That Would Be of Broad Benefit

Ihe Question of good roads ia one
of t.e uppermost In the present
Legislative aeaaion, and it appeara as
if some aort of legislation tending to
the betterment of our highway I
sure to be enacted. However, there
seems to be a woeful lack of knowledge
among some of the member a to wbat
would be iust and equitable, and there
fore the following letter from County
Judge Daly in response to a fetter from
Hon. W. Irving, member of the House
comittee on Roads and Highways I
of especial interest. It sets forth fully
and clearly just wbat is needed in the
way of legislation in order that the
whole State, especially tbe sparsely
settled portions may be developed
rapidly by the aid of good roads. Tbe
lettr to Mr. Spencer follows:
"Dear Sir: Replying to your letter
of the 17th inst., relative to the pro
posed law providing State aid for
County Roads, I beg to inform you
that I am in favor of State aid for the

As Explained, Power Is New Inn Has All Conven
Vested With State ! iences For an Ideal
Land Board I Pleasure Resort
Tbe Oregonian of January 24 gives
the following explanation of Senator
Thompson's vetoed bill regarding
swamp lands, which was recently pass
ed by tbe House and senate notwith
standing the veto of the Governor in
The bill provides that tbe State Land
Board, for and in bebalf ot the State
of Oregon, is authorized to enter into
contracts with persons or incorporations
for the drainage of any lakes, marshes
or swamps lying within tbe state, or
for the drainage of that part whicb is
in the state of any lake, marsh or
swamp lying partly in Oregon or partly
in another etate.
It alio provides for the reclamation
of lands forming the beds of or sub
merged bv any such lakes, marshes or
swamps and for the sale of such drain
ed lands to the persons or corporations
whtcb drain and relcaim the same.
The bill in itself does not automatic
ally operate to deprive the state or
any individual of such lands,- but it
gives to the State Land Board full and
discretionary power to take such action
as it desiies toward entering into con
tracts tor such drainage and reclama
tion. It is not particulary directed to
ward any particular lake, such as
Warner Lake or Anderson Lake, but
includes all the lands in the state.
There is a vast chain of lakes in
Southern ana K'aatern Oregon which
would come within tbe meaning of this
bill. . Around their shores are valuable
lands which are now considered prac
tically worthless, but which, under
the operation of the till, should it be
come a law over the veto of the Gov
ernor, would furnish great and inval
uable resource for the State of Oregon.
The bill makes further important
provision that all of tbe money that
snail be received by the State Land
Board under its provisions shall be paid
to the State Treasurer and be placed
by him in tbe common school fund.
Through tbe operation of the till
large suma of money would be diverted
into tne common school fund at tbe
same time that now undeveloped re
sources of the stale would be optnuu
up and placed under the p ooesa of development.

taxable property of the State will share
equally in the expense of constructing
and maintaining the public highways,
while under the provisions of tbe pres
ent law, all property situated in incor
porated town is exempt from a road
tax, su, that the agricultural, horticul
tural livestock and timber interests
pay the entire cost of building and
maintaining tbe public highways of
Oregon. But the method which voor
Committee proposes, for appropriating
to each County a flat sura of 110,000
to be raised by a State tax, lack every
element of justice and equity, because
the rive Counties of Crook, Harney,
Klamath, Lake and Malheur, contain
almost one hlx of the entire area of
tbe State, and while these counties
have nearly one half of the total
mileage of tbe County road in Oregon,
they would only receive $50,000, and
the other 29 Counties, with only aboot
one half of the State's area, would get
$290,000. The mere statement of these
facta should be sufficient to convince

The first step to bring tbe Fair port
Inn. since its opening, in connection
with Lakeview from a pleasure stand
point was made last Saturday night
when about twentv people went down
) from here and enjoyed tbe evening in
Ihe trip was made in two bob sleds
each having four horses for motive
power. The party left Lakeview at
four o'clock in tbe afternoon, reach
ing the Inn about eight in the evening.
Upon arrival the guests were seated
to a sumptuous dinner which had been
prepared under the able supervision of
Host J. N. Ford. Tbe dinner which
consisted of three courses was very
nicely gotten up and served in a most
credible manner. V. U. Snelling, tbe
affable mayor ot Fairport, was there
to assist in looking out tor the crowd,
in a manner in which only he knowns
how to do.
The new Inn is elegantly equipped
with all necessities and many luxuries
for the guests, and its capable manage
rs nt, UDon this occasion, showed that
guests are assured all the comforts of
Mr. Chas. Gott of Lakeview and
Mrs. Bradley and Mrs. Parsor.s, ot
Fairport, who played tbe piano alter
nately, furnished the muBic for dancing.
Each of the visitors pronounced tbe
affair to be one of the most pleasant
incidents of their life and left with tbe
avowed declaration of repeating the
trip at the first opportunity.
Pen Did Not Look Good
Two rabbit drives were held Tues
day near tbe Hopkins ranch where tb
pen waa set Sunday at which over 1300
I more of the pests were destroyed.
Another drive will be held Sunday at
I the same place, the crowd meeting at
the Hopkins place at eleven o'clock.
The rabbit drive Sunday west of
town had all appearances at the. atnrt
of being the most auocessfuil of tbe
season until the animal were herded in
near the mouth of the peo when they
deliberately Htampedeo and hundred
of them succeeded in forcing their way
through the crowd, making their
encape. It is estimated that nearly
5U0O rabbits were euituundud but tbe
Snal count showed that less than 1000
bad been killed.
