RAILROAD RACE TO

Points Uive Kise to Belief That
Aim of Both Is to Go
Through Minto Pass.
ALBANY, Or.. May 13. (Special.)
Are the Hill and Harriman railroad in
terests to have a race to Bend across
the Cascade Mountains from the Wil
lamette Valley as they did up the
Deschutes Valley to the same point a
few years ago?
There are certain indications which
lend color to an affirmative answer.
Active work of surveying parties, ef
forts toward purchasing rights of way
and shipments of supplies for pros
pective work are the indications.
Several months ago there was talk of
building a railroad from Salem through
Stayton. thence up the North Santiam
Valley and across the Cascade Moun
tains to Bend. This line was surveyed
as far as Stayton some time ago. Re
cently a surveying partv has been act
ive in the North Santiam Valley east
of there. It has surveyed a line from
Stayton eastward to Mehama, thence
southward across the North Santiam
River into Linn County, running
through Lyons and up Fox Valley and
then turning eastward about five miles
south of the Albany-Hoover branch of
the Southern Pacific. This crew is still
Early Work Predicted.
Members of the crew are reported to
have said that active work will begin
on the grade next month. Current
rumor is to the effect that the Hill in- j
terests are backing this proposed road. I
Soon after this party of surveyors I
began working in the vicinity of Stay
ton, a party of surveyors went to Hoo-1
ver, the Bastern terminus of the old
Corvallis & Eastern Railroad, now
owned by the Southern Pacific, and
have been at work east of Hoover about
When this railroad was built, the
grade was extended about eight miles
beyond where the track was laid, and
this grade is yet in fair condition. The
latter party of surveyors is working
eastward from the end of this grade,
apparently with the purpose of sur
veying a line across the mountains.
That the Harriman interests are con
templating the extension of the line
from Albany to Hoover and on to Bend
is believed to be responsible for this
survey. Such an extension has been
rumored many times In past years, but
t is is the first time that surveying
work has been done on the present
Heavy Operations Indicated.
That construction work in the near
future is contemplated is shown by the
fact that two and one-half tons of
provisions were shipped recently to
People familiar with that section of
the country assert that both of these
proposed railroads will likely head for
Mlnto Pass and cross the Cascade Moun
tains by that route. The Corvallis &
Kastern Railroad was constructed so
that it would cross the mountains by
that pass if extended,, and the work of
the surveyors indicates that the pro
moters of the Salem-Bend line are
planning to follow the same route. The
present activities of both surveying
crews is what has led to the belief that
the two great rival railroad interests
of the Northwest may be planning a
race for advantageous locations across
The prospective railroad work has
aroused considerable Interest in this
section of the state and people who
come down from Mill City, Detroit and
other towns along the North Santiam
report new developments almost daily.
They assert that the work of surveying
crews indicates that actual construction
work must be contemplated soon.

Temperament may be all right in an

The good truck works without fuss or fret, all the time. It has the

Its only business is to get the load to its destination, and get' it there
Unfortunately, all trucks are not good trucks.
But all Packard trucks are.
Ten thousand of them, serving in more than 200 lines of trade, are
proving it every day and every year.
And it's the year-through proof that counts. It's the steady, ready
worker that makes the ledger cheerful, that keeps business at top
pace, that makes income exceed outgo. v
Why, a good truck is just beginning to show what it is made of after x
it has paid for itself and has started in paying its employer. Then
is the real test.
Then the difference in Packard quality and Packard construction is
shown conclusively in miles and money.
" But maybe it isn't quite fair to expect other trucks to do as well
Being built right, with the benefit of years of experience, immense
resources and incomparable facilities, they naturally are better and
naturally are the choice of critical buyers.
Taking it all together, with the fact that in seven sizes, ranging from

economical carrier for any service it is only reasonable that they
should be the best hauling investment it is possible to make.
