WHERE ROLLS THE OREGON
AN INTERESTING LETTER FROM
THE FAR WEST,
A Falls City Resident Tells of the
Glorious West, the Discom
forts of Travel. Etc.
Lakevlew, Oregon, July 3, 11*09.—
Falls City Tribune Dear Sir:—You
will remember 1 tolil you 1 would try
«nd write you when I got to Oregon,
We enjoyed a part of our trip very
winch and a part just the opposite.
The part that we enjoyed was from
Denver to Pueblo, about one-hundred
miles of beautiful country, then it
’Commenced to get very tiresome; wo
^ on id see nothing from the ear win
dow but sandy, rock hills and moun
We hear people talk about Colora
do, l tali and Nevada, well outside
the two or three larger cities in the
three statis, I wouldn’t give a dime
for the balance. They seem to me
like a large desert and only Just once
in awhile you can look down a val
ley from the train and see a small
oasis, or two by four garden patch,
with a log-cabin by its side.
We stopped over at Salt Luke but
wo were very much disappointed. The
city was very dusty, hot and smaller
than wo expected We went out to
Salt Lake, or Saltair, as it is called
hero, in tin1 evening. It is quite n
pleasure resort, all kinds of anmso
* -nents, bathing, dancing, skating and
I think a merry go-round.
Monday wo starteii fur Ogdon, ami
Reno, which are in Nevada, Ogden
is just nr nice or a little nicer place
<o live than Sait. luiko, as it isn't so
dirty. Reno, Nevada, Is the pi •asnnl
est town we have struck. II has a
fine stream of running water through
’he center of the town. Ii lias a
population of 14,000 and is up-to-date
in every way. We stayed there over
night and the next morning started for
Altural, the end of the narrow gage,
"jerk-water” road that Is ten times
rougher than the Missouri Pacific road
in Nebraska. When we reached Al
turas, California, in the evening, wo
were more Ilian tired and dirty,we
went to an Inn to get a drink of seltzer
water and nil that-two small glasses
<ost was thirty cents, and It didn’t
stnrt to quench our 1 hirst. “Old
rocky Jerk-water road" was out of
ice water about ten o’clock that morn
ing, bo you can Imagine our thirst.
Alturas is a town of 1,000 and is lim
ited to nine Ruinous. As It was late
when we lynched there we did not
Rave time to find out much more
about the town, so we retired for the
night. Tho next morning we got up
<arly and started for the deserted
point, Lnkoview. Oregon. We made
Hu trip in nu automobile, it is only
sixty-thr> i ii ilos from Alturas, hut a
trifle further than I thought it was.
We enjoyed the ride and (lie scenery
was beautiful especially along (loose
laiko. 1 think Louie Davison espoei-j
ally et.joyed the auto ride a - the
driver plat ' d him between two oi*i i
maids, who wire very talkative. The
driver being very reckless Louie
found himself at times In the arms
ut first one of those ladies and then
Hie other. We saw many fine large
fir trees and other very interesting
riv. d at Lakevli'w shortly after one
o’clock and was ns hot ad’blixen,”
we ate dinner at a Chinese restau

rnit to where a company is building the

they toll me it is about twenty-fixe

here. 1 see only a few cherries and
ssome apples and raspberries. The
soil in the valley seems to bo fertile
* •nough to raise most anything The
wllmate will allow such as wheat,
Parley, oats, alfalfa and other bay.
farmers here raise a great many cat
*le and sheep, but not so many bogs.
The country lias been very much mis
represented as to climate and fruit.
1 wouldn't care to live here at all, but
i*s to the valley land, when it has
water on it will be worth what con
tractors have paid for it. 1 suppose
most of the rough land could be
fcised all right if some one could get
-rid of the large nigger-head rocks
iand smaller stones. From here xve

The crops are about one month
As to our contract for land here,
I think we shall keep it. If we are
iucky and draw some valley land we
will get the worth of our money easy.
Mrs. Oswald left us at Reno to goi
to the coast, where she will visit'
relatives ami some fiends. We will
start for there about "VYVdnesrinv of
next week, as our tickets will tnke
that way on returning home. We
expect to be home about July 20th.
The trip out here Is a very long one
hut we are not sorry we came as It
is worth much for one to see things
as they are in the different states.
Yottrs truly, for ohl Nebraska.
CONGRESS CAN CHECK CRAZE.
New Yotk Police Head Urges Home
Protection Against Cocaine
Now York, July JO, Declaring
that all the police heads of tin' coun
try would lie greatly helped if a pra<
tlcally prohibitive tariff was placid
on foreign cocaine and Internal rev
enue restrictions on the domestic sup
ply of the deadly drug, Theodore A.
Bingham, police commissioner of this
city has today written Senator AJ
drlch urging that congress give this
protection to American homes. The
spread of the cocaine craze in New
York City has become “wide spread
and insidious,” General Bingham
points out. and already his department
has listed sixty-three drug stores as
suspected of extensive illicit sales to
victims of tills drug. If this national
evil is to lie checked, it is the opin
ion of tlie police head here, congress
must at once follow the recommenda
tion of the American Health League
and shut off by a tariff tax the see
ret sources of supply from abroad by
which unprincipled dispensers are at
present able to evade all local laws
and circulate to rapidly widening cir
cIoh of drug fiends.
With tliis plea from New York's
police head, many similar communica
tions from local authorities who must
also fight the cocaine curse are be
ing received today by the Chairman
of the senate finance committee.
Philanthropic, medical and charitable
organizations throughout the country
are Joining (lie American Health Lea
gue to urge that this vital opportunity
to guard the physical and moral wel
fare of every community in the land
be not neglected by their representa
tives at Washington. The leaders of
Mils new movement are asking every
citizen who would protect Ills home
town from the drug plague to write
to Senator Lodge,who is today calling
the matter to the attention of the
Startling evidence of the grip which
the cocaine habit has taken upon com
munities In every section of the con
tinent has today been presented to
congress. It is estimated that some
150,000 ounces of the powerful drug
were consumed last year in this coun
try, considerably more than half of
which is known to have gone to meet
the cravings of the victims of the
deadly habit. Though its use is
usually more or less confined to the
more vlacious classes, It is record
ed that school children have been ap
proached and taught to "use the drug,
while distinguished physicians and
other professional men have falb n
before it ; insiduous powers. Almost
every one of these cases, the men
who pander to the drug victims have
been able to conceal their source ot
supply by importing cocaine from Lon*
don or Hamburg, it is shown.
Only a removal of the source of
supply of this drug can cure its \ U

clare, and such a result could only

duty of $1.50 an ounce on foreign co
caine. Hacked by the reputable phy
sicians of the country and the fa
thers and mothers who seek to shield
their eommunlth s from this subtile
drug habit, the American Health Lea
gue is today looking to congress for
this particular form of real home pro

On the Puciflc coast and in Eng

“VVe must depend on the litth
folks to take up this battle for tin
birds which wo have waged for many
years all over the country," say;
William Duicher, president of th<
National Association of Audubon so

mental interests which the children
take in the feathered songsters of
their home country, they must lie
taught to realize that their native
