Stipulation as to Tlmo.
lllght-of.way through half u dozen
ranches lying along the Deschutes,
from tho mouth of Trout oreek on
down, was purchased lust week by F.
S. Gordon, for tho Oregon Trunk Line,
and In soveral Instaucus a time limit
wns set Within which tho right-of-way
must be occupied by the railroad lu
order to make tho deed to rlght-or-way
elteollve. In one Insttuioe It was stip
ulated that tho right-oNway should bo
uolunlly occupied by the railroad with
in two yeurs, otherwise the righlof
umv to rovort to tho Kraiilor. Tho
willingness of U company to Inoor
porftto theso stipulations lu their right
of way oontrftots cannot bo construed
otherwise than as an earnest of their
lutontlon to build tho railroad into
Central Oregon at onco.
Mr, Gordon, while here, wS millB
euntliKtlo m MMurnbes tliat tho
Oregon Trunk Ilno means business.
He stated that work, would begin on
the cormtruptlon of the lino not later
than the second week of May, and
would be pushed steadily through to
completion. The promoters of the
fijeschutes railroad have flounced tbelr
project, and with ample funds avail
able, they promise that there shall be
no delays in the construction of tho
line up, the river. Owing to tbo heavy
character of tho work. It will require
fully two years to complete this line
as far- as jadras, even f the work is
permitted to propeed without Interruption.
