W, I. Johnson, secrolary of tho
Klamath Oovnlopment company, stat
ed this afternoon that on July 1 of
this year bis company would begin
active work on the opening up of
Iluena Vista addition. This announce
ment coming Just at this time, when
the prospects are so bright for the
opening of Uecond street and the
building of the boulevard around the
lake, should be sufficient Indication
that there la going to be something
colag In Klamath Patla tbla sum

company Intended to usa every ea
ergy for tha Improvemeat and settling
up of tha addition.
It Is generally believed that the
Klamath Development company has
mid tha greater portion of Its hold
Inge In the Hot Springs addition, and
aa soon aa they begin tha opening of
Ruena Vista addition, which Includes
rractlcally all of the property between
high school hltl and the upper lake,
that tha development of thla section
will proceed at a rapid rate. With
tha opening of Second street toward
the oipense of which the company has
lledged 11,000, It will naturally fol
low that the Improvement of Third
itreel to tha upper lake will receive
tha assistance and support of tha De
velopment company, aa this would
give direct connection to tha retail
business section of the town for a
large territory of desirable residence
It Is reported that tha Development
company la planning many improve
rnrnta along the shores of the upper
lake, which to destined to ba and Is
already fast becoming a very Import
rnt manufacturing center, and there
Is also talk of an electric line eonnec
ting with tha upper lake and running
south through tha farming section to
tha Merrill country. When asked
with regard to these reports Mr. John
son stated that their plaas wera not
fully matured, aad ha did not care to
say aaythlag at thla time. Ha ad

speparlng last night In columns of
"lo last night's Herald a statement
was mado to the effect that tho writer
lias received unduo favor from tho
mayor and council In the vacation of
a certain street for an alley and re
ceiving 1100 difference. Wo wish to
make It plain that the 1100 difference
went to tho city, and at the tlmo this
deal waa practically made, a year ago
last October, as the minute records
show, this was a fair and equitable
difference In tho value of tha two
strips of Isnd, as any property owner
In that part of town would atteet.
"It took no favoritism nor partial
ity to consummate the deal, aa the
city received nearly as much laad aa
It vacated, and the alley, as anyone,
on Investigation, would think, la of
much greater benefit to Ua public
than tho street and Is quite awateeery
