Important Development Scheduled
for Coming Week in Rogue
Itiver Valley. ,
Medford, Ore., Nov. 26. Impor
tant developments in the railroad sit
uation are scheduled for the coming
week, with Grants Pass playing its
strongest card for the securing of a
railroad to the coast. Dr. F. D.
Reddy returned Saturday from a trip
to San Francisco, where he has been
for the last week, and conferred with
Grants Pass citizens. A meeting of
the business men of that city will be
held next Tuesday, at which, definite
plans for a railroad and securing of
funds will be held.
It was reported Saturday that
coast representatives of the Hill lines
will be in Medford the second week
in December and that plans will be
made at once for taking them over
the route to Crescent City, at least
as far as possible. It was also ru
mored that the Towne interests, who
control the Blue Ledge mine, had se
cured an island for a smelter site
near Crescent City and that they
were taking an active interest in the
The plans as now developed are
in such a stage, the promoters say,
that nothing definite can be given
out for publication. The general
opinion about town is that the Grants
Pass activity is inspired by the Harri
man lines in an effort to block the
fhreatened invasion of their territory
by their ancient rivals in the north
west the Hill lines. In this con-!
nection it is recalled that central Ore
gon was untouched until Jim Hill in

The surveying party is now en
gaged in setting stakes and lines

Our sister town of Talent Is cer
tainly forging to the front in the way
of public works. Her school house,
which was erected in the summer
and fall of 1911, is a model of com
pleteness for a town of its size. A
representative of the Tidings had the
pleasure to inspect it throughout one
day last week, through the courtesy
of Professor F. C. Smith. The build
ing is of red pressed brick, hand
somely trimmed with white brick,
and will eventually have eight school
rooms. At present only four teach
ers are employed, the lower floor
only being finished off. There is a
convenient office for the principal
on the first floor and also a large
assembly room with a gallery, well
seated with opera chairs in the main
floor and with folding chairs in the
gallery. The . seating capacity is
about 350 people and the room is
fitted with a small stage with dress
ing rooms on each side, so that the
school can use it for putting on en
tertainments. The school, by the way, is now
planning to put on a play for the
securing of funds for additional
equipment, etc., for the school.
The building is heated by steam
throughout and has its own water
and sewer system, though it will be
probably connected with the city
water piant when the latter is com
pleted. The building has the latest
and most sanitary toilets and sani
tary drinking fountains. There is a
good gymnasium, well equipped, with
shower bath and dressing rooms for
both boys and girls. There is also
a play room. for the "kiddies" in ad
dition to the regular gymnasium.
One feature rather uncommon, but
highly appreciated, is the lunch
rooms. There are two rooms in the
basement, one for the boys and one
for the girls, fitted with long tables
and seats for the benefit of those
who have to carry lunches.
There is not a school in the valley
better equipped for grade work than
Talent, and the special commutation
rate to Ashland, with the excellent
motor service, permits the, high
school pupils to attend the city
schools at a cost of only $1 per
week for transportation charges.
They arrive in Ashland at 9: 20. and
leave for home at 4:25. Talent cer
tainly has every reason to be proud
of her schools.
But its schools is not the only de
partment of Talent civic life which
is going forward. Some time ago
$20,000 in bonds was voted for a
municipal waterworks system., A
well has been put down and cement
ed and the work of laying the mains
and putting up the Btandpipe is now
in progress. The city is buying the
material for the mains and the con
tract for furnishing the labor and
tools for putting in the pipes has
been let to Messrs. E. E. Piiipps.and
T. H. Simpson of Ashland, who have
a large crew of men at work. Steel
pipe is being used, the largest being
eight inches in diameter. There has
been the usual delay in getting ma
terial on the ground, which has de
layed the work, and the contractors
will probably be compelled to lay off
their crew for some time.
The standpipe is 35 feet high and ;
18 feet in diameter and has a storage !
capacity of 150,000 gallons. The j
elevation of the standpipe is such j
that there will be a pressure of 50
pounds to the square inch in the bus
iness section of the citv. It is
planned that should the erection of
larger buildings demand it a booster
pump can be put in and the pressure
raised to any reasonable amount.
The village is also putting in a
street-lighting system. They have
contracted with the Oregon-California
Power Company for the installa
tion or 16 40-candlepower series
Tungsten lamps. There is trans
former capacity for 60 lamp's and
the system will be increased as fast
as the growth of the village war
rants. The pupils of the Talent schools
have been taking up contributions
for the orphans' home at Portland.
They have contributed a large
amount of canned and fresh fruit.
vegetables and groceries. The
Southern Pacific Railway Company
has agreed to transport the dona
tions free of charge.
