DESCRIPTIVE BOOKLET IS
NOW BEING JSSl'En.
Facts ami Stntlstlcs of the County
Gathered Into a New Booklet by
Coiiiinluoo From Umatilla County
Development Lookup H. C. Willis
Will Jo East to Cheyenne and Dis
tribute Book. Among Honiewokers.
The Umatilla County Development
League recently formed In this city
is now Issuing an elegant booklet de
scriptive of the resources of the coun
ty, which will -be distributed on Union
Pacific and O. R. & N. trains as they
come westward laden with homeseek
ers for Oregon and Washington.
The booklet will contain about 16
pages of statistical matter concerning
the county and is now being issued
from the presses of the East Oregon
Ian. The committee in charge of the
publication Leon Cohen, G. A. Hart
man, sr., and J. R. Dickson has col
lected a valuable and complete array
of facts and figures concerning the
resources of the various portions of
the county, and the booklet will be
one of the best of the kind ever issued
in the state.
H. C. Willis, secretary of the Uma
tilla County Development league, will I
go east as far as Cheyenne, when the j
booklet is issued, and will distribute '
it among the homeseekers and Willi
work diligently to Induce some of
them to stop off and take a look over
this county before going to Portland
or Into Washington.
The O. R. & .s. and Northern Pa
cific are offering greatly reduced
rates from the east to Pendleton and
this territory. The one-way fare
from all Missouri river points Is now
but $22.50 to Pendleton and tributary
territory, and it Is thought that many
homeseekers will take advantage of
this offer. From Chicago the one
way fare is but $30.60 to Pendleton,
and hordes of peonle are now coming
westward over all the transcontinental
lines on these reduced rates.
In addition to the westward rate, a
round trip excursion rate of little
more than one fare from all points
east has also been granted to Pacific
coast points, and the tourist travel
this season promises to be heavier
than usual Inordinary years with
nothing special to attract people to
While most of the homeseekers are
going through Pendleton into Wash
ington and on to Portland, it is
thought that by the distribution of
the Umatilla booklets and by active
work of the agent among the home
seekers on the trains, a number may
be induced to investigate Umatilla
county which Is said to be poorly ad
vertised in the east.
Yesterday about 50 pieces of home-
seeker baggage checked to Pendleton
were received at the O. R. & N. bag
gage rooms In this city, denoting that
a few homeseekers have made this
city their destination.
So far Umatilla county has had no
advertisement in the east except that
received from the O. R. & N. booklet,
"Oregon, Washington and Idaho," and
the little circulars Issued by the coun
ty court for the Lewis and Clark fair
Homeseekers say they hear of
Spokane, Walla Walla, Portland and
Hood River, but never of Pendleton,
until they come into Oregon. Many
of them would have made arrange
ments to have stopped off here had
they known of the great resources
and the Importance of the county.
It is hoped that the distribution of
the booklet now being Issued will in
duce many of the actual homeseekers
to locate permanently In the county.
Every portion of the county Is given
equal recognition In the booklet and
complete Information on all the vari
ous industries and opportunities of
the country Is given In It.
INTO ALASKAN INTERIOR.
Thirty Miners Leave Seward for the
About 30 prospectors, all well sup
plied with outfits, started for the in
terior Thursday on the train, which
carried about 75 men altogether, says
the Seward Gateway. A large major'
ity of the prospectors are headed for
the Yentna district, though a small
number were Intending to go else
where. Several were bound for the
upper Shushetna, and a few are inter
ested In the region Just north of Knik.
Chief Clerk Jackson, of the con
struction department of the railroad,
who furnished the transportation for
passengers over the road, says that.all
through February from 50 to 75 men
a week went out from Seward on the
trains to go Into the mining districts.
Most of these are known to have
been headed for the Yentna. It la ex
pected that the next two weeks will
see a greater rush than ever as after
the middle of March thawing may set
in at any time and stop travel on the
rivers until the ice is out
CONVICTS BUILD ROADS.
Crew of 27 Prisoner Now Grading In
Governor Chamberlain has author
Ized Superintendent James, of the
state prison, to put a crew of men at
work at the quarry, says the Salem
Journal. Twenty-seven men are
working today, and are busy In drill
lng and blasting rock. The county
furnishes two foremen to direct the
work, and the convicts are watched
by two armed guards. Only men
with a good prison record and adapt
ed to that particular work have been
picked out to do the work.
The men are taken to their work on
the street cars each morning, and re
turned In the eveulng. They are fed
at the quarry at the noon hour at the
county's expense. A large canvas hoi
been stretched over the rock crusher
and the part of the quarry where the
men are employed, so that the work
may be done effectively, notwith
standing the rain.
It is thought that by beginning the
preparation of the rock early, it will
be ready to be placed on the roads
at a more convenient and seasonable
time than a year ago. The experi
ment of employing convict labor will
be one that will be watched with
more than common interest.
DEVELOP IKON IN OREGON.
Company Formed to Mine Columbia
County Coal and Iron Ore.
Oregon will be the home of a great
iron and steel working Industry If
negotiations now under way are fa
vorably concluded In the east, says
the Oregon Dally Journal. Dr. J. S.
Giltner and 15 or 20 other owners
have given options on upward of 15,
000 acres of Iron and coal lands to G.
Allen Mason of New York, represent
ing the New England Coal & Iron
company. It is said the company
will Invest a vast sum of money In a
project to establish on this coast a
smelting and steel working plant that
will rank with the great plants of the
The existence of Iron and coal de
posits close to the Columbia river In
this state has long been known. The
lands have but a nominal value ex
cept for their timber, It Is said, un
less some concern with very large
capital comes In to develop the Iron
Industry. Some years ago the lands
could have been bought for $5 per
It Is said the price has now gone
up to $50 and $100 per acre, practi
cally the same prices that Iron lands
bring In Michigan and other regions
where the iron industry is well devel
oped. The Columbia river iron lands
are said to produce a fine quality of
ore. equal to that producing the Bes
"These lands He on the Oregon side
of the Columbia river, In Columbia
county, and extend from Columbia
City south about six miles to the
Scappoose country," said E. C. Gilt
ner. "They contain large deposits of lig
nite coal and Iron ore. The Iron is
known as brown hematite, and is said
to assay as high as any known Iron
ore In the country. The coal Is known
only by what is seen on the surface.
Its extent or quality can be learned
only by boring and development. The
iron lies in blanket ledges and ex
tends over many thousands of acres."

Walla Walla. March 20. Petitions
were prepared Saturday and are be

The petitions are being numer

WINTER WEATHER AT ALBA.
Thermometer Registered From 12 to

Alba, March 20. The weather has
moderated considerably within the
past two days, but It Is yet very cold
and the snow Is from eight to 10
inches deep all over the country.
Feed is plentiful among a large por
tion of the stockmen, but a few with
small herds are rustling feed wherever
they can buy It.
There Is no loss of stock yet, but
many are very weak and there will
surely be slight losses.

Abundant Water Next Summer.
Perhaps the greatest benefit will be
derived from the snow by the miners
who have not been positive as to the
amount of waters that would Le
available this season, but now there Is
no longer any speculating on the
length of the season for operation.
The mills will have an ample supp'y
to operate through the summer and
far Into autumn. Heavy pipln will
be begun as soon as the water starts
on the placer properties. These great

Retail Hnrdware Dealers Expected to

Minneapolis, March 20. The annu
al convention of the National Retail
Hardware Dealers' association opens
here today. The attendance is unu
sually large and every state and terri
tory Is well represented. The con
vention will last three days. It is ex
pected that the convention will renew
its campaign against the parcels post
proposition and will adopt strong res
olutions In opposition to It.
On the other hand, the convention
will undoubtedly favor a reduction In
the rate on first-class mat lmatter
from two cents to one cent for each
ounce. The delegates will argue that
the reduction of the rate on first
class mall matter will be of greater
benefit to the public In general, while
the parcels post would Involve great
cost to the government and would
benefit mail order houses to the dis
advantage of the small retailer.
