Klamath county has an opportun

ing contl-ol of the Southern Pacific
company, through the construction of
the Strahorn line. Some believe that
all of our ambitions will be served
thru the building of the Natron cut
off, but in this they are mistaken.
If the Natron cut-off were an accomp
lished fact, we would be little better
off than we are now, for we would
atlll be a one-railroad city which
means a town of very limited size.
"With the Strahorn line to Bend, or
aorae other point In the vicinity of
cur perfidius neighbor, we would
nave the benefit of the Hill line.
With the full development of thr
Strahorn system, we will have the
Pacific. When we secure
these two connections, we will also
get the Natri u cut-off .mi tho .Mo

has always been the policy of the

The week Just past has been

The referendum vote of all
Chambers of Commerco in tho
state, as to whether the Klamath
Falls Strahorn line for the open

encouraged and supported was a
landslide for the affirmative tho
entire state voted yes, with the
exception of the town of Bend,
which has doomed itself hence
forth to be a way station only.
The overwhelming weight of
public sentiment is clearly in fa

the great work she alone so pluck

bert E. Strahorn will be enubled
to commence construction from
Dairy to Spruguo river AT ONCE,
as soon as the question to be sub
mitted to the people Is settled.
By ordlnanco passed to second
reading on Monday last, and
which will bo up for final passngo
next Monday evening, tho whole
question will bo HUhmittod to tho
people of Klamath Falls at a spe
cial election to bo hold May 21st.
Tho vote to bo takon on that
day Is whether the City of Klam
ath Falls shall sell and deed tho
present municipal railroad to
Dairy to the Oregon, California
and Eastern Hallway company,
taking in exchange the income
bonds of shI drallwny company,
amounting to 4300,000 tho tltlo
to be turned over when construc
tion reaches Sprague river.
Our duty and our interest aro
clear thero is only one thing to
do and that Is to get rid of the
municipal line on the terms offer
ed and get Robert E. Strahorn to
ivork throwing dirt on the
Sprague river extension without
one minute's unnecessary delay.
Our prosperity depends upon
this extension and WE MUST
HAVE IT-THIS YEAn. One large
mill concern with an estimated
pay roll of $260,000 per annum Is
waiting our action on May 21st
to establish Itself at Klamath
We cannot stand still to go
backward is unthinkable we
must go forward. The people of
Klamath' Falls are the architects
of the future of Eastern Oregon.
To us belongs the leadership to
us will belong the trado If we
have tho capacity to seize tho op
portunity before us. ,
The eyes of tho country nro
upon us. Oregon expects every
voter in Klmnuth Fulls to do his
duty on May 21st.
