ANOTHER periodical awakening
to tho loss sustained by Oregon
through thn trade of southern Ore
gon counties with California commer
cial centers. Is Indicated In tho cur
rent Issue of tho stnto chamber of
commcrco bulletin. The puper P"b
Jlshes an artlclo by 0. 1). Croncmlller,
secretary of tho I.a)n county chamber
of commcrnn on "Tho County that
Oregon Foifcot." In which tho Lake
county iiinyi enumerates tho ast to
tourer on his county, agriculture,
timber, livestock and other present
jmtT'potcntlal wealth prod fleers, oomo
partly dovulopod, somo undeveloped,
but nil hampered In UoTelopraent by
Isvk of transportation, (leogrnpbl
eally a part of Oregon, It Is argued
that Oregon Should aid In establish
ing transportation, so that I-ako may
assume, a commercial, loclal and pol
itical part in tho commonwealth of
which It Is a territorial part.
Commenting editorially upon
Croncmlllor'n criticism, the cham
ber of commcrco organ say.:
On another pago In this Issuo ap
pears an artlclo entitled: "The
County That Oregon Forgot." The
tltlo Itself Is a reproach and a
criticism against tho cntlro state,
but tho criticism Is Just. Nor is the
erltlclsm applleablo only to I.ako
county, which Is tho subject of
this particular article, but applies
equally to tho entire southern sec
tion of tho state which Is bounded
on tho west by tho Cascades and
on tho east by the state of Idaho,
and which Includes Klamath, Lake,
Harney and Malheur counties.
These four counties comprise
inoro than one-third of the land
area of Oregon, aggregating 33.
735 squaro miles, or larger than
tho combined a'reas of the states of
Now Jersey. Massachusetts, Con
necticut and Now Hampshire. Itut
tho present population of theso
four counties Is slightly OTer 30.
000, or about one-ninth of the pop
ulation of tho city of Portland.
What Is the potential wealth of
this vast empire? Today, when
theso four counties aro practically
Inaccessible, cut oft from the ro
mnlnder of tho state, penetrated
for only a few miles on three sides
by railroads, there Is produced an
nunlly mere than one-third of the
href cattle produced In theostate.
r inr. 5KS hind: more than one-
third of tho alfalfa produced In ihc"
state, or 200,334 ions, anu mora
than one-third of the sheep mark
eted from Oregon, or 721.83C
head. These agricultural products
nro the only ones that can be pro
duced remote from transportation;
It Is difficult to surmise the pro
ductivity of this section If ade
quate transportation facilities
enabled tho small farmer, the di
versified farmer, and the dairyman
to mlgrato to tho rich valleys and
Irrigated sections of this vast ter
rltory. Agriculture Is tho greatest sin
glo undeveloped asset of theo four
counties, but thero aro others. In
Lake county. lor Instance there Is
a slnglo belt of pine timber that
stretches unbroken for n dlstanco
of ISO miles which has been prac
tlrally untouched. It Is said that
at ono point In this great forest, a
larger area of standing pine can bo
seen than from any other point In
tho world. Klamath Falls, In Klam
nth county, has long been a lumber-producing
Through' what channels and In
what direction do tho products of
"Oregon'H forgotten counties"
move Not through Oregon. Tbo
bulk of tha tonnage of agricultural
products und livestock produced n
Malheur und Harney counties
moves eastward to IdahoKlamath
and Lake counties have their only
outlet southwurd to California.
When agricultural product lcayo
any section to find a market, thero
Is always a return stream of com
modities purchased for tho use nnd
development of that section. Where
do tho consumers In that. vas,t ter
ritory purchaso their supplies?
Not In Oregon, but In .California
nnd Idaho whero tho market Is
Tho answer to tho problem Is
transportation, and that means
railroads. Settlers will 'follow tho
railroads und a fully developed
hlghwuy system will follow tho fcet
tlers, but first tho railroads, must
bo built. At present "looso end'
of railroads touch this empire; In
tho north at Oend. In tho norcsoast
at Crane; In tho southwest at
lkovlow and Klamath Falls. Do
tweun theso "loose ends" lies tens
of thousands of squaro miles of
undeveloped territory which has
aptly been termed "tho last front
ier." Oregon must help her "forgot
ten count los" beforo these counties
Tho logic of tho last sentence Is
obvious. If tho people of southern
Oregon must develop their destinies
without aid from Oicgon, there will
come n tlmo when their economic de
velopment, though more slowly tit
talned that If they had aid, 'vlll
mako them Independent of Oregon
There Is material In the nrea spoken
of for tho creation of a now common
wealth, nnd unless something Is done
to link us closer, commercially and
politically with Portland nnd Salem.
It Is natural thai some day wo must
develop our own commercial and pol
itical capitals In other words, the
Idea of tho writer will bo carried out
nnd tho "forgotten counties will for
Development of southern Oregon
would bo hastened If Oregon would
extend tho holplng hand to which wo
aro entitled, but past experience has
taught that whllo thero has been
much talk of holpful pollcle, It has
necr been transmuted luto action.
The tlmo Is hero, however, when
words will satisfy us no longer. The
Western Pacific Is looking this way.
nnd It their building plans material
ise wo will havo an eastern and
southern outlet that will soxer almost
entirely the bonds that hold us.
This Is n fertile field nnd who sows
a seed of holpfulncss at this critical
period In development, will reap a
rich harvest of bcnellt If Portland
realise fully tho day for soolhlns
words 1 past and tho tlmo for action
here, then by nil territorial rights,
tho ounorluntty to reap Is hers. Hut
Izatlun, has been ery much misun
derstood nnd misinterpreted.
The undersigned commllteo, duly
chosen -to represent Local 1SS be
tween Its official sessions, lo pro
oiit further misunderstanding of
said order, withdraws same at tho
request of the state conciliation
board, and In so doing wishes to as.
sure the board of Its fullest co-operation
to the end that no obstacle
may be In the way of an nmleahle
settlement of this controversy.
Tho uboo order shall remain In
full force and effect during tho
period of Investigation and udjust

to show lt absolute, willingness to
secure a peacealilo solution of tho
controversy now pending before tho
