THE MOUNT HOOD
ROAD GETS BUSY
80D Mento Begin Grading
on April 1
PASS FOUND ACROSS THE MOUNTAINS
Bcllovod to Bo Handed For Central
Oregon-Surveyors Seeking Route
DoWn East Sldo
Between this date and April 1 the
Mount Hood Hallway company will re
sume construction work with a larger
force of men than it was employing prior
to the financial strihgenpy that stopped
work last October, says the Oregon Daily
The Mason Construction company,
which retains the contract for 25 miles
of the lino between Portland and Bull
Kun, will put on about 80b men and the
railroad will be pushed through to the
east limits of the city.
, With the settlement, of the contro
versy between the city and company
over right of wayacross the Bull Itun
pipe line of the water company, tiie
railroad management is again preparing
to go forward with its big project of
building a very large power develop
ment.on the Sandy river and an elec
tric'standard gauge railroad from Port
land to Mount Hood. A few private
suits over rights of Way remain to be
threshed out in the courts, but tiieso
will not longer retard the construction
of J.ho line.
The route has nearly all been decided
upon between Bull Run and the city
limita, and by the time the graders
reach any of . the indefinite points the
line will have been located. Three
routes are still under consideration im
mediately east of the city.
Machinery for the installation of 15,-
000 horsepower is now being received
every week for the Mount Hood com
pany's big electric power plant at Bull
Bun postofiice. The water frorn the
Sandy river is to bo utilized there to
generate power. A vast -reservoir is be
ing created on the plateau near Bull
Kun pobtofike where the.company has
purchased many hundreds of acres of
land. The Sandy river's waters will be
IhiI to this re?pJroir,- and thence dropped
over the bluff into water wheels of the
power plant that is beinc erected on the
bank Of the Bull Huh riyerj which emp
ties into the Sandy a few hundred yards
below tho power plant. t, ,
The electric railroad will first be com
pleted between the city. and the Bull
Run power plant. Tho main liiie fol
lowing the Bandy river canyon will then
be taken up and tho road built on to
ward Mount Hoodi it has been said on
good authority that the company's in
tention is to build the line through to
Central Oregon, and possibly to Salt
Engineers in the employ of the com
pany for the last year have been survey
ing through tho Cascade range to the
eoutli of Mount Hood, and it is stated
positively that they have found a pass
giving the lino through the range a
maximum grade of less than 2 per cent.

162 HAVE REGISTERED
BIG REPUBLICAN LEAD
Registration Proceeds Slowly -Books
Closo April 7.
Up until Tuesday aitcrnoon 102 voters'
had registered in Kutcher precinct, anil
of t!yil number a trifle over threefourthe
were republicans. The registration b
parties is as follows:' Republicans, 123 1
Democrats, 27; Socialists, 9; indepen
dent, 3. Judge Brooks, wiio is the dep
uty registrar for this precinct, says, thajj
the registration is proceeding slowlv
these days, although he knows there arq
many voters in the precinct who hayp
not yet registered. The registration1,
books -will close at the countyseat on
April 7th, and Judge Brooks says that
these who have failed to register should
come in and do-so at once, ih order that
their registration blanks may be for;
warded to the county clerk before that
Reports from other sections of tht
county indicate that the registration ir
light in those precincts also. However',
it is known that the population of tho
county lias increased greatly in the past
two years, by reason of the many hev
tettlers who have moved in during tha
period, and the total vote of the coiintj;
in the approaching election should be
milch larger than it was two years agoj
Doubtless a large number ha;e beert
putting off the rriatter of registering un
til the last day's, and these will swell the
total very rapidly in the next ten daye.
