President Stevens of the Ore­

of Redmond business men lust
week that the bridge builders at
Pittsburg had wired they would

material until about the first of
May. Mr. Stevens sent a repre­
sentative to Pittsburg to see what
the matter is, and to hurry the
material along on its way to
Crooked river.
Mr Stevens estimates that it
will take four weeks for the

Track laying on the Oregon
Trunk line south from Metoliua
has been progressing rather slow­
ly the past week or ten day a.
Not over a mile of track every
other day has lieen laid during
that time, is the information that
has been received by The Spokes­
man from a reliable source. The
cause of this delay is said to be
the difficulty of (lumping water
in sufficient quanities from the
railroad well at Metolius to sup­
ply the construction train. It is
expected the rails will reach
Crooked River early in April,
Prineville City Council granted
a franchise to the Prineville &
Eastern Railroad Company at a
special meeting last week Tues­
day night The matter was
warmly diHeusued and was grant­
ed on the proviso that it be used
within three years from date.
The Prineville & Eastern Co.
is now negotiating with the Hill
interests to sell the franchise and
rights of way for a branch line
from Metolius to Prineville. From
present indications it seems that
this deal will he closed soon.
At the recent charter election
it was voted to issue $25,000 of
bonds for the construction of a
stand pipe water system in this
city. It is the intention to have
the water pumped from the Des­
chutes river at Cline Falls by the
Crook County Water, Light and
Power Co. to the stand pipe here,
a distance of about 4 miles.
Warren Si Woodward, civil en­
gineers of this city, have worked
out the details of the plant and
submitted them to the council.
It is proposed to have a tank
100 feet high at the base, hold-
ing 100,000 gallons of water lo­
cated in the city at a central point,
and run mains from the pipe
through the business and resi­
dence sections of the city. Mains
of sufficient size will be laid to
accomodate the needs of the city
for years to come, and to insure a
good pressure for fire protection.
It is estimated that with the
above equipment a pressure of
about 55 pounds per square inch
could be obtained. The water
from the Deschutes river is the
purest water, according to chemi­
cal analysis, that is found in
Oregon, and can be used for all
domestic purposes.
It is expected that the Oregon REDMOND HAS A
Trunk Line and the Deschutes

WILL REDMOND HAVE
DASE DALI THIS YEAR
The question has been asked
The Spokesman “ what is doing
in base ball circles in Redmond
this spring?’’ This is a question
that is up to the ball players of
the city. And if Redmond is to
have a team this year, now is the
time to begin working out the
plans for an organizntion. There
are a number of athletes and ball
players in the city, it is under­
stood, and if a movement is made
to organize there is little doubt
but what a winning team could
be put in the field.
Last year the city had a
good ball team, and played win­
ning ball, and there is no quest­
ion but what a team equally as
good if not better, can be organ­
ized here this season. The Red­
mond people are good patrons of
the national game, and it is to be
hoped that the fans will get to­
gether and do something at an
early date, so that the Hub City
can be represented with a ball
team that will be a drawing card
for the city and furnish recrea­
tion for the public.
