"Everyone here seems to be inter

on all sides if I tl.ink that Hill is
coming south. 1 firmly believe he is
coming to Bend, and 1 just a* firmly

Falls. I have, of course, no definite
information to that effect, but take a
map, study it. and see for yourself.
Hill is a great lover of lumber traffic.
He is closely Identified with many
of the great timber syndicates, par
ticularly the Weyerhausers. There is
everything down hern to induce him
to come, and he generally goes where
there is traffic. That is why I say
that Klamath Falls will soon come
into its own. It will soon throw off
its swaddling clothes and awake some
fine morning to find itself blossoming
out into a full-fledged city.

This method of gathering informa

everything that is new, it is due to
necessity. The experience of those
who have passed around a subscrip

them from engaging in it again, as
well as preventing the uninitiated
from stepping to the front and taking
their place. Under the system that is
to be followed this year there will be
no arguing nor opportunity for enter
