The people here are satisfied as

There are some improvements

The weather clerk has been ab
sent, and it has been slightly moist
for a few days.
This has been a bad winter for
stock in this vicinity, and nearly
every one, has lost some. P. M.
Lathrop, uy Elk lias lost several
head, two yoke of oxen at one time.
He has one cow left. He says he
is not discouraged, but is still a Big
Elk Farmer.
Vero Mulkey killed a cougar
last week that measured seven feet
ten inches from tip to tip. He
found where it had been killing
stock, and trailed it over near Har
vey Parks' ranch, where he killed
it. Mulkev has a doir that eniovs
the sport, and will stay with them
for days.
Mrs. II. L. Palmer, who )rts
been sick all winter, has been
worse for a few dftys, but to-day is
reported better.
Barney Morrison made us a call,
and informed us that if all works
well with the quarry he would have
a town surveyed, and will give
away a reasonable number of lots
to people who will put up buildings
in good faith. This will encourage
people to settle and soon establish
a school, post office, store and other
buildings necessary for a town.
Barney says, "Wq are not in the
race for the county scat, it is too
expensive a luxury to be wanted
in a small place like this, but we
can furnish the "corner stoiiij."
No doubt the man on the Yaquina
who wants to fish for dollars, can
find satisfaction at Elk City. The
spring run of trout are coining in
and on pleasant days plenty of
them are to be found.
Col. Kelsay spent Sunday with
us, on his way to his ranch on Elk.

sale end of the deal. We have just
put our steamboat Three Sisters on
the 'ways' in one of your Portland
shipyards. She will be ready for
sei.yice in two weeks and will run
iieuveen PorUaiul and iSaleiu. So
soon as she is in service we will
bring the steamer Bentley down
and give her a thorough overhaul
ing. It is the intention of our com
pany to put three boats on the
Willamette river. We are now
running one the lloag. That
boat, and possibly another, will run
all summer. The lloag is doing a
good business and has done so all
the season. Our rail line is doing
a remarkable business. Since the
change in the management there
has been a .steady increase of busv
ness. Nevei at this season of the
year has the passenger business on
our lines been so good. There is, a
big immigration into the Cascade
mountains. People are going into
the mountains in great numbers in
anticipation of the extension of thu
Oregon Paoific, which is not far
distant. We will commence to
operate our line between I lalstead
and the end of the track, about 14
miles, within ,-50 days, This will
give those who are not far from the
Hiunmit easy access to our line.
Several new sawmills have started
into operation 111 the Santiam coun-
try lately. We are also doing
very nice lumber traffic.
"Our ocean line is doing well.
The steamship Willamette Valley
left Yaquina lbr San Francisco at 9
o'clock yesterday morning drawing
14 feet of water, with tte largest
cargo she has ever carried. The
bar at Yaquina is improving every
day. To give an illustration: As
the Willamette Valley crossed over
the bar coming into Yaquina last
Tuesday, hf r soundings were 24,
19, 24 feet. This shows that there
is net much bar. It is, not over 15
feet if it is that much. It has im
proved so much that we scarcely
think it necessary to have the ships
towed in and out. The tug has not
had hold of a line in one month,
which I think speaks volumes for
this harbor.
"What will we do for New
port? Answering that I would ask
what are we not going to do for it?
We propose making Newport the
summer resort of this country. We
are now fitting up our steamship
Resolute for service between Ya
quina and Newport. We shall al
so use her for excursion parties who
want to go out for a day's sea-fishing.
This season will find New
port a very gay place. There will
