Work on Project» Al
Construction o f a new railroad
from Redmond, the terminus o f
the Deschutes line, to Odell, on
the Klamath Natron cutoff, has
been authorized by the Southern
Pacific directors; the line from
Grants Pass to a point on the
northern coast o f California,
probably Crescent City, may E>e
built, and the Coos Bay line is
being considered, were announce
ments made in Portland last week
by Julius Kruttschnitt, director
o f operation and maintenance
of the Union Pacific and South
ern Pacific systems, after a day
o f inspection o f the property in
and about Portland.
However, no definite time for
beginning work on theRedmond-
Odell road ha« been determined.
In the meantime, the company
will endeavor to complete as ear
ly as jwesible all of the projects al
All of the
present contracts on the Kla-
math-Natron cutoff, said Mr.
Kruttschitt, will be completed
before the end o f the present
fiscal year—June 30—after which
he will recommend that the re
mainder of the route, which he
viewed be contracted for and the
work finished with all possible
speed, so that the new 22-hour
schedule between Portland and
San Francisco can be put into
effect on the earliest possible day.
"The directors of the company
have authorized the road from
Redmond to O dell." said Mr.
Kruttschnitt, "but it is impossi
ble to determine the time when
work will commence. The road
will ultimately be built: that is
certain. It will open a rich coun
try that at present has no rail
With reference to the proposed
East and West lines from On
tario, near the Idaho state line,
to a connection with the Klam-
ath-Natron line, Mr. Kruttsch
nitt declared that the possibilities
for early construction were some
what remote. He expressed the
opinion that such a road event
ually will E>e built, however.
In the work through the Des
chutes canyon, he said, joint
trackage agreements had been
entered into with the Oregon
Trunk Railway over some of the
most difficult portions.
Harriman line has progressed
ahead o f that o f the Hill system
in some places, and the former
line likely will be completed over
the 137-mile stretch from the
Columbia river to Redmond be
fore the latter is finished to Bend.
Vote on Charter
The citizens o f Redmond will
be called upon to vote on the
question o f adopting a greater
charter for the city some time in
February’. At the last council
meeting Councilman Jones stated
that the city attorney was pre
paring data and getting the
charter matter in form so as to
make an intelligent report on
same early in January, and that
some time in February the ques
tion would be ready to submit to
the citizens at a special election.
