THE RAILROAD QUESTION.
"What are you going to do aboat
tfce railroad and the terminal fmnd?"
aad "What do you think of the rail-,
Toad proposition?" are two questions
Ikat are being asked with Increasing ,
frequency by the people of this city,
aad well they may, for Inly by dist
ention and consideration can the
importance of this vital Issue be1
brought properly before the public
Great as the difference of opinion
may be about the wisdom of ever
having embarked on the proposition,
there Is dally developing the senti
ment that the time has arrived when
we bad better rid ourselves of what
may become a greater bugbear than
the courthouse question, if by any
miscarriage of Judgment the city
were saddled with a railroad.
The closer we Investigate the mat
ter the more convinced we are that
the money that Klamath Falls put
into this project will prove to be one
of the best Investments the city ever
made, and this notwithstanding the
fact that if we had had any voice in
the matter at tbe inception of the
proposition we would have opposed
It as strongly as we now support the
a!e of the road to the Oregon, Cal
ifronia and Eastern Railroad com
pany and the raising of the $20,000
terminal fund. The natural ques
tion Is: "Why this change of heart?"
It is a purely selfish one In the
first place the road as it now stands
is of no value to the city It is a
dead loss, and on top of that its
value will grow less from month to
month Operation by the city would
be out of the question unless. It was
extended to a point where It would
develop traffic sufficient to pay for
running It This would mean a big
ger bond Issue, and nowhere Is there
any sentiment In favor of that If
the road Is taken over by the Oregon,
California and Eastern It will Im
mediately become taxable, and tho
revenue produced will help, In part
to meet the annual Interest on tho
bonds. Hut all of this is a mere drop

Hon to Sprague river
We feel now that If ,he line Is built
to Sprague river and the city has to
Pay off the entire three hundred
thousand dollars. It will still prove to
have been a good Investment, for tho
reason that construction to this point
will mean the Immediate erection of
three sawmills in Klamath Palls, and
at least one, and most probably two,
box factories. What will these four
or five industries mean to the city?
They will mean tho practical doub-ling-
of the population of tho city, if
this happens, tho Increaso in property I
valuo will he so Breat that tho pay
ment of Interest on tho railroad
bonds, and oven thu paying off of the
bonds themselves, will never be felt
