warm rain which has descended dur

boon to tint farmers and stockmen of
this section, who have been somewhat
anxious over tho agricultural out
look for the next season. The ranges
last yoar in many sections suffered
severely for lack of moisture of tho
winter previous and tho prospects
wore again becoming dubious.
Tho warm thaw boforo the storm,
took a largo part of tho frost out of
tho ground, -so that a large portion
of tho snow now falling will sink Into
tho earth Instead of running off Into
tho streams. Tho rccp snow In tho

RECEIVER IS NAMED
Kxtcnsion of Sctcntj Mile Would
Connect Itoad With Klamath Fallt
mill Open Cn Valuable Tract of
Timber IJobert E. Strahorn Has
Attempted to Mnke Purchase.
PORTLAND, Jan. 20. Judge Wol
verton of the Federal Court here has
ordered the Pacific and Eastern rail
road running between Medford and
Butte Falls to discontinue operations
in ten days.
A receivership was asked for the
road last week and W. F. Turner,
1'ie.sldent'of the Spokane, Portland
and Seattle Railroad was named re
ceiver. Inability of the company to earn
enough to pay operating expenses and
bond interest has forced the company
into receivership. The road extends
from Medford northeasterly to Butte
Falls, 33 miles and is owned by the
Spokane, Portland & Seattle system.
An extension of about 70 miles
vould take the railway to a connec
tion with the Southern Pacific's Kla
math Falls line running norther'y
from that city. This would give a di
rect outlet to Portland for the large
volume of tonnage originating ir. tn
Klamath Falls country and moreover
some of the largest tracts of choicest
timber would be accessible.
It is known that Robert K. Stra
horr. recently negotiated for the pur
chase of the road which was left high
and d-y thru the United States rail
road rdmlnlstration's relinquishment
of control, but when he abardonad
attempts to buy the property at less
than the scrap value application for
appointment of a receiver followed.
Kaptern bondholders have urged the
scrapping of the road and it is under
stood that Portland interests are
figurinr to buy the road and extend
f. If these negotiations to fcfsien a
foreclosure sale do not matfl.inl'M
he Pacific & Eastern rails n'oliably
will be torn up and with the equip
mo.it told for use elsewhere.
