The old soldiers of Toledo having received an invitation from the G. A. R. Post of Newport to hold me morial services at Toledo on May 30, a meeting was called and sever al of the old soldiers met at Fish's store on Saturday, April 09, to de cide upon holding memorial services as above-mentioned.

Looking to the south we had a splendid view oral! tlii prominent ; peak hi the Coast range; Mary's j peak, now dressed in a mantle of j snow, Grass and Table mountains, j cold and grey in the distance, while j south an'd west one has almost a ! continuous view of Rock creek and j the Siletz river and valley to the i Agency. The. green meadows, with here and there a farm house, j with quiet herds feeding on the ! highlands, calls one's thoughts back from dreamland to the every ; day proposition that the far west, i or wild life in the far west will soon : be a dream of the past, for Uncle ; Samrs broad dominions will soon ' be all given away, and where but a, few short years ago the dusky aa- j tives fished out of the many brook-1 lets that de.it the Coast rane, or hunted the lordly elk on the ever green hills, tie liacks of civiliza tion and the handiwork of the ever progressive pioneer can now be seen. Looking ' due west Cape Foulweather and the Pacific ocean come into view. We could almost locate Toledo and Newpor, tthough we had no glass. After taking in this grand view we took our dog and chased a fine buck nearly over Senator Crosno and Mr. Porter, but it being the close season for that kind of game they wisely re frained from shooting, but sent a huge granite boulder after it which mowed a track for a half mile down the mountain side, knocking down small trees and bounding over logs, reminding one of the track of a Kansas zephyr. The trip down the mountain oc cupied but half the time consumed in ascending, but one's knees felt shaky when the level was reached; but hot coffee, bacon and eggs and mountain trout, with a good camp story from Commodore Lucas and a lively song from Porter soon put us In better cheer and at bed-time we were happy and contented. The settlers in this township have great faith In the early exten sion of the Southern Pacific road from Airlie, the present terminus, to tidewater on Yaquina Bay, the distance being only about 38 miles. Mr, Porter Informed me that he had fun a level over the divide and that'a one per cent grade could be had. ' This road, if built, will corae through King's valley and up the Luckiamute, cross the divide down onto Rock creek and pass through about ten miles of as fine old growth fir timber as there Is on the Coast range. Reaching the Siletz Indian reservation it would pass through about ten miles of as fate valley as can be found In Oregon, striking the headwaters of the Depot, pass through the great coal belt to the junction of Beaver with Depot and on to Newport, the summer resort of the Northwest. In my judge ment there is not another 38 miles of" railroad in Oregon that has open ed up the natural resources that this road would develop should it be built. There is no reason why lumber cannot be manufactured and shipped to San Francisco as cheap as from this section of the country as from the state of Washington. It Is an uudiputed fact that the Sound country depends upon her lumber and coal resources wholly. There Is no reason why Yaquina, with her splendid harbor, should not become a permanent coaling and shipping point. If this road was oiKTating the Indians could and would raise a thousand bushels of grain where they now raise but a hundred. There is rock enough iu Granite mountain to keep fifty trains running dally for ahundrel years, and of a quality pronounced by Portland experts to be equal the Maine or Quiney gran ite. There is water power enough flowing r.ist the mountain to turn the w lice's that would drive hun dreds of saws and drills. More salmon a inually goes into the Si leti; river than into the Alsea and Yaquina combined. In fact the whistle steam in this caamrv of uiulevclo;,! lesotirces would start the whet .sot progress and at n. any' places al..g the road woul l be heard the musical sounds ol nuns inventions. white green fields of nature's smihiigverdue would fon a a back-gvound to a picture ot pros perky an I contentment. And now that thero is every prospect ofa i early extension of il:e O. P. ro.id to Uui-e, and Y.;.;uma Bay has a. hai bor second to none on th Paciiic v. 2' s c ri P N H 2 5!
