RAILROAD SURVEY ENDS
A Fine Grade up Willow
Creek Gorge.
IS llNAHCED tii SETTE
(Jrcnt Soutliern IZtiKlnecrH Fintslt Sur
vey up Willow Creek nnd Return
to The Dalles.
The party of milroad engin
uera in chorgo ol' P. S. Gordon
!Oinplutod their survey into
Madras on Tuosday evening,
and left on Wodneaduy morn
ing for Slianiko, from which
place thoy will go to The Dulles.
The intention of extending the
survey on further south was
abandoned for the present, Mr.
Gordon staling that the present
severe weather made the under
taking diflicult, and that the
survey up the Deschutes and
out to this point was the most
important portion of the enter
prise, the road from this place
on south being "easy going."
It is leported that the engin
eering corps will now tajco up
iho work ut the mouth of White
river, where the lino first reaches
the Deschutes, and survey the
line on down the Deschutes to
its mouth.
Mr. Gordon states that he is
very much pleased with the
grade they got up Willow
creek, and which will not at any
point exceed one and a hall per
cent. In fact he thinks that the
line can be built up the gorge
on a one per cent grade, and
that this pass will be the way
to gee up on to the plateau
lauds. It is understood that
right-of-way maps have already
been filed upon the location
made by this paity for the line
up the Deschutes.
W. F. Kelson, who is said to
bo backing the present suivey,
is vice-president of the Great
Southern railroad, and was the
contiactor who built that line
from The Dalles to Dufur. He
wa also the contractor who
built the State Portage Road
around Oelilo Falls. Mr. Nel
son is known as one ol the boss
railroad contractors on the Pa
cific slope and is said to be a
man of considerable wraith, ile
is associated in the Dufur enter
piiso with Seattle capitalists,
some mono' also being contrib
uted by Portland capital sts.
morehe'adTe. contest
The contest case of Lawrence
L.Nichols vs. George It. More
head was heard before U. S.
Commissioner Kea on Monday
and Tuesday, a largo number
of witnesses being examined on
each side. Nichols conducted
his own case, and Mr. Morehead
lookod after tho defense of his
homestead entry.' The laud in
volved is situated about JO
miles north of Madras on .Agen
cy Plains. Nichols is contest
ing it upon the grounds that the
occasional visits of Mr. More
head do not constitute si resi
dence upon the land as required
bylaw, and that his family har
noviirosidod there- Mr.im
hendmiakes the defense that it
would be impossible1 dor him to
make a living foi himself and
falnily ujjoi tho land without
somoiKXitsido help, and that he
has lu'udo as good a sesidenOe
there UU ho coitld under these
condHidliH. Tho absence of his
family, he contends, is'oxousu
blo ,bul tho ground sthaC the
health 61 his'- wife yotId hot
j. ...'.'.'' i ' i.. ' nil flia
permit of
hor living
on
plains during his absence.
The contest is being watched
with much interest by the Ik me
stoadeis of this locality, as the
question of what will constitute
lesidenco by a married irian,
under the present requirements
of tho land deportment, is an
oft-mooted one. A decision in
the case will not bo had for
s uae time.
RAILROADS 7fTER TIES.
Crook County Joiirrtol.
Additional evidence along the
line of railroad activity in this
portion of tho state is shown in
she inquiries made by the pur
clniping agent of the Southern
Pacific relative to the manufac
ture and delivery of pine ties.
A short time ago the Journal
made mention of the fact that
the Great Southern was negoti
siting with the U. S. Cowles saw
mill for the purchase of railroad
ties, and since that time the
Southern Pacific has asked an
other mill company in western
Crook county to submit bids
for the manufacture and deliv
ery of ties at Forest, Redmond
and 13end. The latter request
came from the San Francisco
offices of tho Southern Pac tic,
and shows plainly that the sur
veys now being made by that
company from the north are not
idle work. It is not known at
this time whether Mr. Cowles
has made any definite contract
for the manufacture of ties for
the Great Southern.
TAX LEVY IS FIXED.
At its last session the county
court fixed the tax levy for
Crook for the ensuing year at
2 mills, which is the ssune levy
in amount as that of last year,
although there is some slight
di derelict- in the items making
up this total. The sti'te and
county (ax are reduced one mill
while the school rax is increased
a corresponding amount. The
!evj' for roads hsis been in-cieai-ed
half si mill, sind a cor
lespoading decrease made in
the levy for high school. For
comparison the levies of the
past two years are given below:
1900 1905
State and County 9 10
School -' 0 fi
Road - - 8 2 1-2
High School 3 3 1-2
Total 21 21
The assessment this year
amounted to 2,020.250, which
amount includes tho exemp
tions allowed. The county will
pay to the state about SO00 in
taxes this year.

IH THE QUiuKSAND
Percy Megargol and David
Fassett, wjio will be remem
bered as the tfans-continental
automobil is ts who passed
through Madras late in the full,
have been having a series of
mishaps upon their journey of
9000 miles. While crossing the
Cascades by the Barlow route
they had a number of experi
ences which were calculated t
have dampened the ardor of less
enthuastic devotees of automo
biling, but after a few day's
rest in Portland they proceeded
on the return journey by way
of California and the southern
route; In the mountains of Ar
izona they were next heard ol
as being lost in a blizzard, and
when found by a relief part
sent in search of them, they were
blocked by the snow, out ol
food, and in desperate strait.-.
Their latest adventure is told ii
a despatch from Gallup, New
Mexico, on Jan. 11, as follow:
"This afternoon trainmen com
ing in from the west report the
loss of the Reo Mountaineer au
tomobile in the quicksand neai
Aztec, Arizona. When tin
transcontinental tourists, David
Fassett of Lansing, Mich., anf
Percy Megargel left Holbrool
Sunday they were warned not
to try to cross the Rio Puesc
at a certain ford as a team urn
wagon had been 'ost in the deej
sands at that point.
Regardless of warning, tin
cur was driven onto the frozer.
