Trtink Kino rnilrorwl, mid Lt I. (ircgory,
e'dcrctary of tlmt compniiy, wore in
Miulraa the firfit of tlio wt'ekj littving
come up Ihu Dccliutt'H Kiver from itn
mouth uh far iih Shorar'f) lirklgo', and
frthu there to Bhnniko and on here by
ataj-'t. lho trip wan for the purpose of
making rt careful iiiHjtectiuu qt t!ie pro
poaed roiito from the mouth of the river
to Bherar'u Bridge, between which
loinl tlio trouble over the right ot way
waM Jiad oh aecbunt of conflicts "with a
government reclamation project, and
which trouble has not yet been entirely
disposed Of. The trip moat of the way
between those ibintn was made on foot.
While tbo triaih dilliculty over the
right of way for the Oregon Trtink Line
iuh been disposed di by Ihu abandon
ment of one of the proposed power daniH
a Ktipulation it required of the railroad
people covering the construction of one
lam at a point a fet'v hiilea below
Shornr'H Bridge, Injforc the right of way
will bo granted. TIiLh Ktipulation,
which carrieH with it the raining of
their grade stakes for a distance of six
mile?, would ncau an additional coat of
several hundred thousand dollars to the
aiiroad', and thin ujon the mee )roa-
pectof the future construction of the
power dam', V hich in all probability
never will be built, as the project is
generally coiifidored not feasible or
practicable. Thi'a portion of tbe right
of way was gone over carefully bv the
ail road men, in ordor that they may
more intelligently deal with the ques
tion at lesue. '
Dining their stay in Ibis locality
Mcfirtrtj. Nelson and Gregory made a
trip out across Agency Plains, and next
ay went out through the .Methodist
1 1 ill and Opal Prairie district!,, and they
were greatly ple'at-ed with what they
saw, .Mr. elgon, who has been in this
section several timen before, expreasexl
great satisfaction with the nianv evi-
ences of growlb and development, and
with general crop conditions, which he
said appeared to him an good tia anyone
could desire. J'his was Mr. Gregory'
ilrst trip into this section, but he saw a
good deal of it tluring his short visit,
and he was enthusiastic over the pros
pects for biiHiness for a railroad in this
district, llu was not slow in seeing the
immense possibilities of development in
this section, with its attendant tonnage
and tratlio for the railroad, and express
ed the frank conviction that Central
Oregon was ready for a railroad and
amply able to support one even at this
time. Mr. NoIhou and Mr. Gregory
spent Saturday and Sunday here, leav
ing Monday morning for Howl, where
they expect to spend several days look
ing over tho timber lands and tho large
irrigated tracts. From Bend they oxi
peettogo to Prineville, and back hero
by tho end of this week for 'another day
or so in this neighborhood.
When questioned 'regarding tlio pros
pectB of Immediate construction of the
lino up tho Deschutes-, both gentlemen
stated that tljoy were as anxious
as thoy could bo to got work
under way, but that right of way dllll
eultiea and other mutters which would
Ilrst have to bo arrangedi lujdf tempo
rarily tied their hands; Both Mated
unequivocally, howOvorj that tho road
would bo built by their company. Inde
pendently uf. either thu Hill or Hard
man interests, and that work would bo
commenced jiiBt as hoou uh tho present.
diltlcultiea in tho Way of construction
could bo adjusted. Tho survey uj lp
Deschutes to tho mouth of Willow Creok
then on Up tlii'gbrge'of Willow Creek to
Madras, will bo fdllowed when work
commenced. l"tlHbcr than that
information could b6 elicited.
May Extend to Bond
Although the jirescnt plans of the
Oregon Trtink Lino oftly include the
construction of the lino as far as Madras
which is the terminus df their survey
it is the ultimate object of tho company
to extend the lino oh sou tin the next
step from Madras to be as far as Bend
the object tif tho Urcsent trip of th
oflicials being to see for themselves th
possibilities of btisincpg in that distrjet
Mr. Ju'lsoh stated while here that the
company would probably mit a party of
surveyors on thai route shortly after his
return to Seattle. An easy grade could
bo secured for the line betweeii this
place and Bend, the most difficult piece
of work o'ti the line being at the point
where Crooked Bivcr is crossed ; and the
territory to be invaded by that extension
wo'uld be productive of a great amount
of business for the road.
