According to Announcement by
Chief Engineer Gcrig.

Train From Falls Will Arrive Here
at 10 a. m. and Will Leave in
The firs! passenger train to reach
Butto Falls will pull into tho little
city among the timber on next Sat

tho residents of Medford and the
Hoguo river valley have watched for
six long years. Chief Engineer Go
rig announced this morning that
there would bo no hitch in the plans
of tho road to institute a regular
train on Saturday.
It was in 1905 thnt tho residents
of the city of Medford determined
thnt a railroad should be built to
Butto Falls to tap the huge timbci
tracts in that section. Tho Medford
and Crater Lake railroad was or
ganized. Money wns subscribed, by
local people. The road was built "on
the top of tho ground" between Mod
ford and Eagle Point, 12 miles dis
tant. Then came trouble. The road
was thrown into a receiver's hands
in 1007 when tho Oregon Trust A
Savings bank of Portland failed
Then tho road lay dormant for some
lime until it was finally sold to John
H. A41cu of New York who disposed
of it to James J. Hill. Work wh
immediately started on its construc
tion and it reached Butte Falls last
fall, but rains camo boforo the road
bed had a chance to settle and made
tho rond beyond Eagle Point unsafe
for travel. So no train service wns
instituted until workmen this spring
put the track in shape. The first
passenger train is to leave Med foul
Tho Pacific & Eastern is to bt
extended across tho Cascades to r.
connection with the Oregon Trunk.
According to present plans wljich
hnve been announced by Hill offi
cials Medford is the terminal of the
Chief Engineer Gerig has, an
nounced the no wtime table which is
to bo placed in effect. The train will
lenvo Medford daily at about 3
o'clock in tlienfternoon and Iny over
night nt Butte Falls. It will leave
tliero nt 7 o'clock in the morning
reaching Medford at 10. Then the
train will double back as far as Ea
gle Point nnd bo back in Medford
in timo for tho trip in theafternoon
to the Falls. This timo will allow
the Butto Falls people to como to
Medford and spend tho day shopping
and return home tho same day.
The time of the train will also
prove a great bon to local business
men this summer. Butto Fulls has
long been a favorite enmping ground.
Families can nbw camp in tho woods
during the summer and the business
men can leave Medford at 3 o'clock
on Saturday afternoon, spend Sun
day with his family and bo bnck in
Medford by 10 o'clock Monday morn
