Great Southern Will
Build to Bend.
MEETS CALIFORNIA ROAD
Portland May Lose Tributary
RESTS WITH THE' 0. R. '& N.
Urtfess Some Action Is Taken by
Railroad Having Portland's In
terest at Heart, Traffic May
Go to San Francisco.
The Great Southern Railway will build
its line from The Dalles through Dufur
and into Bend, bo It is reported from
Seattle, where John Helmrlch. the presi
dent of the company, has deposited a $5,
000,000 trust deed with the Washington
Trust Company, and has announced his
Intention of beginning Immediate con
struction. From Bend, so the story runs,
the line will wind southward through the
Klamath country to join the northward
crawling line of the Nevada, California
& Oregon road, and so on to ban
The announcement startles no one, tor
It is conceded in the railroad wprld that
the time has come when steps must be
taken to release Central Oregon from its
primeval transportation system and to
open the hundreds of thousands of acres
of grain and tlmbcrland to the markets
of the world. The O. R. & N. may not
now be ready to build, hut no one will
deny that ultimately it -will be forced to
do so or lose the territory to some other
competitor, whether the Canadian Pacific,
the Northern Pacific or the line of the
Nevada, California & Oregon. None of
the other companies may deelh It wise at
this time to announce plans for the fu
ture, but It Is certain that grave and per
sistent attention is being given to the
questions of how to get Into the central
part of the state at the least expense,
with the shortest and easiest haul and
into the richest sections.
Question of Finance.
There is one great question, admitted by
railroad men, which Is holding back the
making of definite plans or the com
mencement of operations. That question
is the finance of the thing; not whether
a road into Central Oregon would pay,
for it is known that such a venture would
be in time very profitable. The stumbling
block is whethere or not the capital ne
cessary would be forthcoming on an in
vestment requiring rive or six years to be
Many are the schemes for the bringing
to life of the vast reaches of the Interior
state, and all of them feasible. These are
divided Into three general heads, the east
and west line, those roads to lie built
northward to the main line of the O. R.
& N. along the Columbia, and the theft
of Portland's pastures by a line from the
South. "Which one will be the first to
come is a matter hard to predict, though
at this time appearances tend' toward
either the northern or the southern routes
The Cascade Mountains hold Portland
back from the -benefit of what might be
made of Central Oregon. Too much
rugged land and mountain range lies be
tween the city and the plains. If It were
not for the long pull and the difficult con
struction of a route through from Detroit
at the end of the Corvallls and Eastern
into the Bend and Prlneville country,
there is strong reason to believe that it
would be months Instead of years before
he toot of the locomotive would rouse
the lonely cowpunchcr from his dream of
Trackage and Expense.
To build a line of road from Detroit
through the mountains to Bend, from
there across Crook, or the north end of
Lake County to the rich lands of Harney
County and the vast irrigation possibili
ties of Malheur and Harney Lakes and
from there along' the banks of the Mal
heur River to Ontario and a Junction with
the main line of the O. R. & N. This
work would require 500 miles of track and
on approximate expenditure of 512,000,000,
-which would Include the entire equipment
Of the line ready for the rolling stock.
Such a line would open the entire state
from East to "West, would give a shorter
line from Portland to the East than the
route along the Columbia, and would in
time build up a country as rich in varied
products as any section of the Pacific
Northwest It Is not a question of how
much it would pay. but how long before
it would earn more than the 55 Per cent
of the cosf. necessary for operating ex
penses and be able to pay interest on the
The Great Southern Railway and the
Columbia Southern represent the north
ern Junction theory, and both plans are
pronounced feasible and able of accom
plishment perhaps at lower figures than
those which have been quoted in reports
Of the past. By some engineers it is con
tended that $20,000 a mile would pay for
construction through the worst part of
the country to be traversed, and that
from $5,000,000 to $7,000,000 would build
lines to tap the best of the land now rest
ing in idleness. The smaller sum is now
said to be pledged for the construction of
the Great Southern, with more money in
the background to push the terminal fur
ther south when occasion arises.
Five millions of dollars will bring the
California, Nevada & Oregon from where
it now rests, a short distance south of
Lakevlew. through that place, into Har
ney Counts', and on to Ontario, past Mal
From the northeast it is said that both
the Northern Pacific and the Canadian
pacific are looking with covetous eyes'into
the treasure lands of the future; the first
from Pendleton, the second from Spokane,
through the Palouse and Walla Walla
"Valleys and across the mountains.
No Idle Dream.
None of these are Idle dreams, but all
are live plans which are now puzzling
the brains of those who rule the railroad
destiny of the Pacific Northwest. Central
Oregon will soon have railroad transpor
tation, but whether or not It will lead the
wealth of the section away from Portland
or the reverse is unknown. If the line Is
built across the Cascades from the end
of the Corvallls & Eastern through the
state it will mean a heavy grade on either
side of the mountains. If the Columbia
Southern or the Great Southern build
south, the empty cars -will have to be
hauled up hill from Portland, to run back
by gravity loaded with the grain, timber
and stock of the Interior. Which, then,
-will be done?
If the California. Nevada & Oregon line
reaches up from the south Into Lake and
Harney and Malheur Counties, the south
bound trains, loaded with produce, will
run of their own weight into San Fran
cisco, except it be for a short distance
around the southern base of the Siski
yous near the Black Buttea. If the
threatened invasion of the Northern linea
becomes a. fact, then the traffic will all
lead to Spokane.
That la the situation, and the riddle Is
whether the O. R. & N defender of Port
land's interests,, will build a costly road
across the Cascades, or will struggle
along the Des Chutes or from Heppner
into the interior to claim the territory
first, as tributary to Portland, or will the
lines from the North or the South, less
costly of construction, break in and steal
from the city that which of right belongs
here. There is no doubt but that one of
the conditions will prevail, for the situa
tion is conceded by the railroad men and
borne out by evidence indisputable that a
short time will see the commencement of
active construction into the territory.
PIONEER WOMAN PASSES AWAY
Mrs. Anna B. Sutton Dies After Lin
Mrs. Anna B. Sutton, aged 75 years, died

SPECIAL CARS FOR ART TREASURES.
That some of the finest art treasures of the -world's art galiorles -will
be brought to the Lewis and Clark Exposition Is assured by Frank V. Du
Mond. In a report received yesterday by President H. W. Gbodc. Mr.
Du Mond, who is the supervisor of the fine arts department at the Expo
sition, is now stationed in Xcw York, where all paintings for the Fair
are being consigned preparatory to shipment. Owing to- the immense value
of the pictures, they cannot be shipped by ordinary methods, and President
Goode stated yesterday that special express cars will be chartered for their
transportation. Just what canvases have been secured is not yet known
at headquarters, although a detailed report from Mr. Du Mond is expected
at an early date. It is known that he is meeting with great success In
getting paintings both from private and public galleries and collections.
Meanwhile, work is progressing rapidly on the imposing Art Gallery,
or Museum of Arts building at the Exposition. It will be set apart into
seven compartments In order that the paintings, drawings and etchings
may be placed according to the various schools of art and mediums repre
sented. It will be fireproof in every detail, and the lighting will be entirely
by electric lights, placed so as to produce the very best effect. There will
be no windows in the buildings, but three entrances will be provided.

SAND ISLAND WAR
Seiners Say It Will Come to

Fishermen Have Spent a Large Sum
In Clearing What They Claim Is
Tide-Land, and Do Not Pro

The fact that Governor Mead, of Wash
ington, has wired the Secretary of War
his pretestation against the leasing of the
Sand Island seining grounds has not in
any way disturbed the Government offi
cials here. Among them it is the belief
that the fishermen are not going to be
nearly so badly hurt as they protest, and
it is 6lmply a case of their trying to keep
the good thing up without coat. In their

own words, they have occupied these
grounds for 20 years without any cost,
aside from their equipment, and, aB has
been said, unless they had made money it
is unlikely that they would have continued
In the business. j
Major Langfitt, who returned from the
Snake River yesterday, was interviewed
on this subject last night, and said:
"I know nothing about any protest from
the Governor of Washington In regard to
the leasing of the Sand Island seining
grounds, other than what I have read in
the papers. There Is only this to be eald
about the matter, however, and that is
that the rights which have been given
free for several years are worth some
thing. If not, it seems strange that the
same people who are protesting so vigor
ously should have bid In the aggregate
$5000 for the rental of the five locations
for one year. Of course, no one person bid
that amount, but the highest bids for the
five locations reached that sum. I cannot
se.e where the operators can lose anything
by paying a rental, since they have had
the use of the grounds for nothing for
years, and the fact that a large number of
bids were entered for these grounds shows
that they are a valuable property, even if
they have to pay a rent to the Govern
ment. Of course. I have no individual ex
pression in regard to the matter. This of
fice was ordered to advertise for bids for
the leasing of the grounds, which we did,
and my surmise of the conditions Is made
from the results of that advertisement."
"Now that your project for the Celllo
Canal has been approved, when will you
begin work?" was asked.
"I did not know that it had beon ap
proved," replied Major Langfitt. Upon be
ing assured that the press dispatches had
conveyed that information, he said:
"I really have not had time to read the
papers for the past few days, but If the
matter Is as you say, that means that we
shall begin actual work as soon as the
water conditions permit. By that 1 mean
that we cannot k much until after the
high wator, but by July work on the canal
should be -started and the first of Septem
ber should see everything rushing.
"No, there Is nothing of interest to be
said of our trip. "We were on the Snake
River, but simply on an Inspection tour,
and we found everything in good order." '
Guglielmo Spends Days Crying.
"Gugllelmo is gradually regaining his

over him he was a nervous wreck and
would spend the greater part of his time
in bed weeping.
"But the crying spell lias worn off, and
he is up and around all day, although at
times he does become very despondent.
It may be that he is trying to appear as
though he has resigned himself to his
fate, in hopes the guards will to a cer
tain extent, relax their vigilance, thus

NO DOUBT OF ITS IDENTITY
French Professors Confident Body Is
, That of Paul Jones.
PARIS, April 15. Dr. Papillaut, the an
thropologist, in, an Interview, today ex
plains the methods pursued yesterday to
Identify the body of Paul Jones found in
the old St. Louis Cemetery after "a long
search made by Ambassador Porter. He
says an examination was made of the
teeth, hair, nose and ears, and they all
correspond with remarkable precision to
the known measurements and character
istics of the Admiral's organs. The for
mation of the frontal bone, the slope of
tlie" nasal bone, the dartlleges and ears
likewise correspond precisely with the
measurements of Moudln's bust made
from the life-masks. The measurement
of the height and diameter of the skull
correspond within a thousandth part of a
meter, thus establishing a remarkably ex
act correspondence with the features.
The doctor says his report makes the
usual reservation covering possible
doubts, although he believes he has suc
ceeded in assembling so many proofs as
to make the Identification incontestable.
Mf. Porter Is receiving- congratulations
on the success of his long search for the
body, which has been transferred to a
new casket bearing an Inscribed plate
and having a glass over the face permit
ting its Inspection.
The extensive work of excavation at the
cemetery has been suspended and work
men are now filling the lengthy tunnels.

TAFT GLORIFIED BY FRENCH
His Refusal to Help Kaiser In But
ting In Wins Him High Praise
All Powers Except Aus
tria Snubbed Kaiser.
PARIS, April 15. Although the details
are carefully guarded, there Is the best
of reason to believe that conversations
have actually begun between the repre
sentatives of France and Germany with
a view to removing the mlsundertandings
relative to Morocco. It is certain that
diplomatic means have been found to
bring about a mutual exchange of views.
This appears to be the direct result of
the more moderate attitude Germany has
shown after communicating with Wash
ington, London, Rome, Madrid, St. Peters
burg and Vienna.
Information reaching high quarters here
is quite definite that all the capitals ex
cept Vienna took substantially the same
grounds as did Washington in assuming a
neutral or negative attitude toward Ger
many's propositions relative to Morocco.
Concerning Vienna the Information is less
exact, but It is .believed to be In accord
ance with the action of the other capi
tals. France Glorifies Taft.

In avoiding giving American support to
"Germany's position evokes the warmest
tributes from the French press. The
Matin prints a large portrait of Mr. Taft,
with a leading article setting forth the
present strong bonds uniting France
and the United States and quotes a friend
of Mr. Taft as saying:
"American Interests In Morocco do not
warrant our mixing in this political con
troversy. Emperor William should haVe
known this. While our affection for hfm
and Germany Is most sincere, It does not
warrant our forgetting the consideration
we owe to France and England."
The Matin says the community of Ideas
between the United States and France is
most-complete, and the paper congratu
lates the government upon the cordiality
existing In London and the strong sup
port given there to the French posi
tion. What Britain Owes France.
This leads diplomats tp say that Great
Britain owes France much more than
moral support In Morocco. The Anglo
French understanding resulted in France
relinquishing to Great Britain the French
shore of Newfoundland and Important
French rights in Egypt, and Great Brit
ain's consideration for this was the recog

BEETS ON INDIANS' LAND.
Company May Lease a Portion of
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, April 15. At the instance of Rep
resentatives Jones, the Secretary of the
Interior has granted authority to the Yak
ima Indians, in Eastern Washington, to
lease their unimproved allotted lands,
amounting to about 1500 acres, for a term
of ten years. Some time ago Represen
tative Jones laid before the Secretary a
letter from Mayor C. A. Fetcher, of
North Yakima, on behalf of a corporation
that desires to erect a beet-sugar factory
at xsorth Yakima. The company, how
ever, will not build, unless it has assur
ance that It will be furnished with a
stated quantity of beets, and Inquiry de
velops the fact that there Is not suffi
cient land tributary to North Yakima on
which the beets can be grown, unless it
is possible to use a part of the Indian
lands on the reservation.
The Indians, or many of them, are will
ing to lease their lands for this purpose,
and the Department is willing they
should do so for a stated period, at a
rate not less than 51 per acre per year.
The Department further Insists that In
dians shall be given employment In the
beets fields, and will require lessees of
each SO-acre tract to put up improvements
to the value of 1500, such as house, barn,
fences, etc.. such Improvements to Jje of
a permanent character and become the
property of the Indian owner at the end
of the 10-year lease. It Is also stipulated
that at the end of the 10 years at least
10 of each 0- acres shall be planted in
alfalfa, for the benefit of the Indians.
