BURNS, HARNEY COUNTY, RAILROAD WORK GO ON Slump in Stocks Will not Affect Lines Extending in This State DESCHUTES FORCES INCREASED Positive Statement of James J. Hill Assuring and Im provements Decided on by Harriman Interests Show Extensions of Both Will Continue Without Delay Tho positive statement by James J. Hill, in the East yes terday, that tho slump in rail road stocks and unrest in Wall street will not stop tho construc tion work and improvement on the lines of road ho controls, whilo applying only to a portion of tho railroad development un der way in Oregon, is taken as a fairly conclusive indication that none of the work will bo halted in the stnto this Summer, says tho Oregoiiinn. In Oregon, railroad construc tion and betterments under way at the present time will have cost when completed approxi mately $30,000,000 and this is only on construction work or betterments that have been formally authorized or for which contracts havo been let. With such an immense amount of railroad improvements under way and promises of exception ally good harvests. Oregon qnn be looked to to maintain a pres tign in measuro of prosperity over any other commonwealth of anywhere near her counterpart in normal wealth and population. The Wall-street situation dur ing tho past few dnys has not had a visible effect in Portland railway centers or construction headquarters. "We are going right ahead with the work under wny," said President Stevens, of tho Oregon Trunk Line yesterday, "and I have received no intimation of a change of any kind in plnns of construction." J. P. O'Brien, chief represen tative of tho Harriman inter ests in Portland, was away on a trip of inspection yes terday, but just prior to his de parture he announced tho author ization of nearly $250,000 in im provement, affecting only two stations on the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Company's line. These included erections of a mammoth new freight depot in Portland and machino shop and roundhouse improvement at La Grande. Within tho last few days work was begun on tho new 1,600,000 bridge that will span the Willamette in place of the present Steel bridge, and it was announced that tho contrac tors were preparing to put a largo force of men tit work on tho Troutdale extention of tho O.

Tho scarcity, great demand mid high prico of draft horses makes the following suggestions of tho London Live Stock Journal worthy of consideration by farm ers and horsemen of this ceuntry: "Few will deny that the farm ers of this country havo been en abled to survive tho bad times by the help of their livo stock, and it is ns important as ever to keep up the number of those on linnd, always supposing that n higher standard of merit is being con stantly 'aimed at. When the ag ricultural returns show that there is a shortage of numbers in any particular class of stock, it is advisable to breed from ns mnny females as possible, in order to make good tho deficiency. "The decrease in the number of young horses will cause owners of fillies to consider the question of breeding from two and threc-yenrolds, so as to make up the shortage as quickly as possible, and experience has proved that Shire fillies, which have been thoroughly well fed and cared for, may be put to the stud at two year old with very satisfactory results, as instances of winners breeding winners could be mentioned. Owing to the growth of the show system tho young stock of most breeders are fed with a view to getting big animals, consequently the two-year-olds of to-day are big ger and more developed than tho three-year-olds of twenty yenr ago, and quite as well able to breed a foal, but in olden times marcs were not supposed to bo capable of nursing till they were five years old, which meant that they had to bo keep a long time before they commenced profit earning by breeding a foal. This system compares unfavorable, from a financial point of view, with getting a foal at three years old, and that from fillies which have taken high honors at im portant shows. As above men tioned, the show preparation is usually beneficial for the reason that tho extra feeding which is necessary to prepare a young animnl for exhibition adds to the growth, and thus renders it suf ficiently mntured and strong to undertake mnternnl duties while still n filly, which a common, underfed one is not. Of the two evils it is better to breed from a filly, than n very old mnre, as there is certain to be more vital ity in the offspring of tho former. "There is however, ono precau tion which is necessary to tako before a three-year-old gets heavy with her first fonl, and that is to see that sho learns to People work, otherwise sho may grow up to be a non-worker, or very difficult to manage. This applies to light as well as heavy fillies. Then, if they fail to breed in later years, they aro still useful for somo purpose. "With regard to light-horse breeding there is no reason why a foal should not bo bred from fillies whilo they arc maturing. Either at three or four possibly boththey could renr a foal and still be accessible for the purpose intended at five vcars old, which is quite soon enough for the hunting field, the carrige, or the army, "It is verv necessary to pre vent waste of any kind on tho farm, therefore fillies which aro not physically fit should bo given tho chnnce to pay their way at not later than three years old while many breeders began a year younger; but as far as mem ory serves, tho best result have been obtained by mating fillies of that ago with two, or at most, three-year-old colts, rather than with older stallions." Political Talk of District People. By reference to another col umn it will bo seen that the friends of Attorney Biggs are using their influence to induco him to permit his name to be used in the primaries as a can dictate for Circut Judge for this district. Judge Davis has served for six years and there is to be a selection made at the coming election. Tho voters of the district are rather of an independent turn and usually accord tho most pop ular man the place, irrespective of party nffiliation, so we can look forward to a good scrap when tho time comes. Senator Chamberlain has notified Attor ney Biggs that owing to the in surgent movement and the As sembly that Oregon and espec ially this dictrict can safely be counted for tho democrats. Of course Chamberlain may not know. Argus BENSON 10 QUIT? Portland Oregenian: That Frank W. Benson, Secretary of State and acting governor, has decided to retire wholly from politics at the close of his present term of office and that his brother, Judge Henry L. Benson will seek the Republican nomina tion for governor is a definite re port in circulation among Port land men who are interested in the political situation in tho state. Governor Benson is now in California seeking treatment for a physical affliction that somo time ago caused him to abandon all inclination to seek election re gularly as governor of Oregon, but nt the time he reached this determination it was his intention to become an aspirant for the nomination ns Secretary of State. It is now said that Governor Benson's health has not improv ed as much as could bo desired and that his physicians have ad vised him against shouldering the strain of a political cam paign. Tho acting Governor is now quartered at tho Hotel Alexander San Francisco, where ho has been for somo weoks and it is understood an operation is im pending. Recently his personal personal physician, Robert E. Leo Stoinor, who ia also Superin tendent of tho Btato Asylum for tho Insnno at Salem, was called to San Francisco, nnd it is under stood will assist in the radical treatment found necessary in Governor Benson's case.
