THE GREAT SOUTHERN
ROAD ENGINEER HERE
Chief Engineer of DuTur Road Vlalta
Madras and Makes Roconnolsance
Up Willow Creek Gorge. Route Is
Feasible, and Expressos Belief that
Road will Coma In That Way.
A locating party bolnnglng'to
tho Great Southern Railway Co,
commonly known as the Dufur
Road, is at present camped on
the Bill Lyle ranch in the Big
Cove on the Deschutes River,
about seven ml leu below the
month of Trout Creek. Mr.
P. S. Gordon, the chief-engineer
in charge spent last Friday and
Satutday in Madras, looking
around for tho most feasible
route for reaching Mudrns. On
Saturday he inadb a horseback
reconnoissance down "Willow
Creek from Madras to the mouth,
and stated upon his return that
a very good line cttald be con
struoted that way.
The surveying party is now
making a very careful location
of the route from Dufur for
about 100 miles out this way,
preparatory to the letting of con
tracts for construction wdrk ear
ly in the spring. Mr. Gordon
says that his people are very
anxious to begin this 100 mile
extension and that as soon ue
favorable wpntber sets in next
spring, work will be started and
that they hope to have the 100
miles completed and trains run
ning within a year from that
time.
The line that Gordon has lo
cated comes out through Tygh
Valley, and reaches the De
schutes on an easy grade just
above tho mouth of White Riv
er. It crosses the Deschutes
about the old Maupin Ferry and
keqps on the East bank from
that point. The grade up the
Deschutes is very easy, being
about IT) feet to the mile, and
from the mouth of Willow Creek
to Madras it will take about 2
per cent climb to overcome the
difference in elevation.
The people in charge of the
Great Southern have great plans,
and are not building n road like
the Columbia Southern, one
that skims the surface of the
ground nnd goes up onehilland
down another, but their line is
built on the best possible grades,
and with the elimination of
sharp curves as much as possi
ble. They plan upon, ultimate
ly, building across the state,
down Pitt River, in Northern
California, and reaching an out
let in the Sacremento Valley at
Reddinu. This will give them
connections with three trans
continental lines.' the Great
Northern and thoHarriman line
on the North and the Western
Paclio of tho Gould lines on the
South.
Mr, Gord'on expects that his
patty of surveyors will reach
Madras in about a month.

the Willow Creek gorge as a
pass from the 'Deschutes up on
to tho plalteau lauds, and
ahould he recommend it, there
id no doubt that this pats will
be adopted when the' road ia
built. The distance from the
mouth of Willow. Creek to Mad
ras is about 8 miles, and the dif
ference in elevation a little less
than 800 feet:
MEW TELEPHONE INE.
MiuIhih h rn htivn n. new tele-
ijhono line, connecting it with
Ihe long distuncb line at Hay
Creek, urwl mmRfruotion on the
telephone lino between Madras
and PrineviDe was built during
the Spring of the present year,
but owing to the number of
phones upon this line, the ser
vice has been very unsatisfac
tory and the telephone resorted
to only when absolutely neces
sary. Owing to thjs fact, the
owners or tho lino are going to
build the new line, connecting
tniBoiuce with the Haycreek
office. The line will give much
bettor service, the rates will be
greatly reduced, and the service
of the new line will be altogeth
er more satisfactory than that
over the Madras-Prineville line.
Considerable new telephone
line has been built in Crook
county during the past two
years, and when the new lines
now about to begin construction
are completed, the county will
be pretty thoroughly "connected
up". Last year Bend was con
nected with the outside world
by the Bend Prineville line, and
this year Lamonta, Forests,
Haystack, Culver and Madras
have been connected by the
Madras-Prineville line and num
bers of ranchers along the line
have had private phones put in.
The phones used on these new
lines are the saihe an those nsed
on the lines of the Pacific States
Telephone & Telegraph Com
pany, commonly called the "long
distance" line, and the service
should be first class when the
improvements now under way
are completed.

0. S. Baton, who arrived this
week to develop a 640-acre
ranch1, for E. A. Baldwin, of the
D. I. & P. Co., east and a little
south of Bend, has ajlready put
lumber on the ground for build
ings, which will be constructed
at once. A frame dwelling 20x
22 feet, one story, and a barn
20x32 feet will constitute the
plant for this winter. The work
of clearing land will go forward
so a considerable area will be
roady for seeding in the spring.
Mr. Baldwin expects to raise a
variety of crops and will com
bine experiment work with farm
ing for profit.
The Baldwin tract is in the
neighborhood of the Tumey
holding of 040 acres and the
Johnston ranch of 10S0 acres,
now under development. The
ITnslcwell-Guerin tract and the
Janney far In are also in that lo
cality. All the ditch landhold

Moro Observer: Hon, Jos.

resources of this part of The In-

Tho news has been published
that Hnrrimnn has made definite
announcement of a railroad from
Eugene to Klamath Falls and

is so muddled hat it does not
add much to public knowledge
of the matter. The Dufur line
is coming right along from the

source runs to tne eneoc mac
there will certainly be an ad
vance of the Corvalhs & East

throw a line into Bend in three
months, if necessary, is taken
as proof that it is still the most
important trancontinental fac
tor for Central Oregon. (
