Potentially groat as an inland city is Klamath Palla,

The latest move of the Southern Pacific is an attempt
to stampede the people of this county, and particulary
residents of Tule lake valley, by holding up the Crane
to Odell line as a menace to the development of this
district and the carrying forward of the Southern Pa
cific program. We are toid by the Southern Pacific
publicity corps that if the Crane-Odell line is built it
will force the abandonment of the Klamath Falis-Aituras

Crane-Odell line is constructed the U. P. $11 undoubt
ed accept the invitation extended by the Northern lines:
io use the Oregon Trunk from Odell to this city; it would
be a long step in the direction of the much-discussed'
railroad from southwestern Idaho to Eureka, via Klamath
Tails, and the Klamath river.
While it might interfere with the construction of the
Modoc Northern, it would not prevent the extension of
the Oregon Trunk to Wendel, to a connection with the
Western Pacific, for such an extension would be just as
i atural a development as the one now proposed from
Bend to this city.
Instead of opposing the Crane-Odell line the people
of this county should give to it all of their support, for it
will mean greater development for Klamath county;
it will mean the extension of the Oregon Trunk to Wen
del, thus connecting this city with the fourth great rail
road system the Western Pacific.
It is plain to be seen that great possibilities are in
store for Klamath county, provided its people are not
mislead by dishonest propaganda to espouse a cause that
has for its purpose the tightening of the grip on this
community of one big railroad system. Paid agents of
the Southern Pacific are afield; selfish interests, seek
ing only to enrich their own pockets, are working early
and late to lead the people astray, but if the people will
continue in their wisdom, Klamath county will not only
secure the Northern lines, but it will be connected up
with the Western Pacific and Union Pacific, and it wont
have to pay $300,000 for it, either.

Thc Jolly Little Game of Tossing the Pancake
Following its well-gi-eased plan of deception, and in
lilie with the misrepresentation that has surrounded the
offorts of the Southern Pacific company to blind the
people of the county to the real facts, The Klamath
News has come out in criticism of the report of the rail
:.oad committee of the chamber of commerce, because
its "report was antagonistic in tone toward the Southern
Pacific." No one. unless he wanted an out and out in
dorsement of the Southern Pacific, can find the slightest ,
antagonism to that company in the report. We be
lieve that the members of the committee sought, to the
best of their ability, to suggest what would be best for
the county. It was a delicate situation that was splend
idly handled and the fact that the Southern Pacific can-i
not see its way clear to accept the report is no reason
for its rejection. v j
In its editorial the Klamath News at last tears off i
the mask and comes out flat-footed for the Southern '
Pacific. This was to be expected, for it is a poor servant i
that refuses to do his master's bidding.
The Southern Pacific'cditorial writer has again step
ped to the front, this time in criticism of the Evening
Herald's vote to ascertain the sentiment of the county on
ilic railroad question. He suggests in the company's
newspaper, the Klamath News( thai We also file with
our returns copies of the paper in which he claims we
nave criticized his chief, Mr. Shoup, and the Southern
Pacific coajutor, Ml. It. E. Strahorn, as well as the ;
