RAILROAD FOR CENTRAL OREGON
The hopes of Central Oregon
for better transportation faci
lities seem at last to be nearing
fruition. The Great Southern
Railwa3r, which is now building
promises to solve the transporta
tion problem upon a solution of
which the developement of the
great resources of this conntry
"depends. Through its presi
dent, John Heimrich, it has de
posited a 5,000,000, trust deed
with the Washington Trust
Company, and has announced
its intention of beginning
irnraeadiate construction of its
line from Dufur south into the
Central Oregon afield!
The Great Southern lias al
ready finished its grade between
The Dalles and Dufur and is
now laying track. From Dufur
it will extend south, striking
the Deschutes and following up
the river into Central Oregon.
From Bend, it is stated, the road
may extend into Klamath
County, to join the Nevada,
California & Oregon line, and
so on to San Francisco.
The construction of a railroad
into Central Oregon has Tseen
looked forward to with a reason
able degree of certainty as to
its early Tealiration, and the
announcement of the Great
Southern will therefore caue
no great surprise in this section
of country. It has been con
tended by many that the solu
tion of our transportation needs
lav in an East and West line.
but the majority will be satis
fied with a road up the De
schutes. ' Certainly the rich
agricultural sections lying sou h
of Dufur and throughout this
section will be adequately
served by such a line, and its
construction will maik the be
ginning of a new era in thr
developement of the country
.through which it passes.
Coming events cast their
.-shadows before them, and the
rapid settlement or tins section
of country in the past three
years presaged the coming of a
railroad. Until a few years
ago a few head of cattle and a
few bands of sheep ranged over
this entire section of country,
and the sowing of a little grain
for winter feed for stock was
the only attempt at fanning.
Developement of the country
was waiting upon a railroad
and better transportation, and
in turn file raiaoads were wait
intr until the settlement of the
country should justify them in
-building. Conditions have now
changed. Large irrigation pro
tects are under wav south of
here, and no portion of the stale
holds more in promise as. a
wheat producing belt than does
thiB immediate section. North,
east, south and west of Madras,
thousands of acres of virgin sojl
4iave been broken and are
- seeded. Without -n railroad,
tl$ future of this section of
ajonntry aB a wheat belt was not
Mured, and the 'fact that
settlers here have gone ahead
with llie. cultivation and ex-
,.tensv.. iinm-o.ve.rn.ent .qf their
ranches proves jtlieir connaencp
jn the exjrly Jiplption of the
transportation problem. The
