RAILROAD SURVEYORS
CAMPED AT MADRAS
Survey Completed Between O'Noll
And Madras .Qrndo Reduced
on Old Survey,
Itobert Rea and tho party of Central
Oregon railroad surveyors reached Mad
raH t)ie 1ub of ijm week, hayjpg practi
eally compacted the survey (or tho pro
jected jlno between this place and Qpejl,
They came into Madras Jast Friday
eyoping and pitched their camp, and
next day "backed up" three miles on
the survey in order to make Boino alight
changes in tlio line where it comes into
Madras. The new survey practically fol
lows the old Columbia Southern survey,
though a few changes have beep made
where the line comes into Madras and
ivnero jt crosses urookca river neap
Qjieil, a slight reduction in the grade
having been found possible at loth of
these places. Tho old survey got out of
Crooked Itiver on a 1.0 per cent grade,
and out of Willow Creek basin on prac.
ticiuiy tne same, while the new survey
reduces the grade about .1 per cent, so
that tho heavies grade on the lino will
be a 1 .5 per cent.
There are 11 men in tho surveying
party and they will probably be camped
here lor several days. Jur. Ilea says
that tlio line from this place South to
Bend is one that can be easily built,
with no heavy work to speak of. I?e
declined, however," to express an opin
ion as to when construction would be
started,. although he Bays he believes
that will depend largely upon tho atti
tude of the people of this section to
ward the railroad project,. Mr. Rea
has bec;i acquainted with the Central
Oregon country for a number of years,
and he has known of this section's
transportation troubles, as well as of
the numerous promises that have been
made from time to time of immediate
construction of one of the various exten
sions projected into this section. He
ran the survey for the Columbia South
ern Extension, which line would have
been built into this section years ago
had Mr. Iy tic's ownership of that line
continued, but he was forced to sell to
Harriman, and the proposed extension
of tho Columbia Southern road was
abandoned. Being familiar with the
past record of broken promises and
blighted hopes of railroad construction
into Central Oregon, Mr. Rea is firmly
convinced that the peoplo of Crook
county will have to render some very
material assistance themselves, if they
want immediate relief from their trans
portation troubles.
FIRST OFFENSE AGAINST
LOCAL OPTION LAW
Bend Man Arrestod -Charged With
Selling Liquor A Change of
Vonue Glvon.
Bend Bulletin
A. B. Estobcnet was jarraigncd belore
Justice O'Connor Thursday nfternoon
on tho chargo of selling liquor in viola
tion of tho law. Ho entered a plea of
not guilty and through his attorney, F.
II. Grecnmnn, submitted an aflidnvit
and a motion for a chango of venue.
The motion was granted by Justice
O'Connor and tho trial will be heard nt
some other plane than Bend. AVhen a
chango of venuo is granted, the attor
neys tor tho Stato and for tho defenso
have tho prlvllego of' choosing tho trial
court, but If they cannot agree then
Justice O'Connor will designate such
court. Attorney G. L. Dernier of Prlne
villu appeared in behalf of tho State, as
special prosecutor appointed by Dis
trict Attorney Wilson.
For tho past three or four days Sher
iff Elklns and Attornoy Hornier have
been in Bend quiotly sifting this mutter
to tho bottom and gathering evidence.
It is understood that tho state has a
number of alfidavits from' men Who
atllrm that they have purchased liquor
from Estobenot sinco his saloott was
closed under tho local option law. Ks
tobenot makes denial and the question
of whether ho Is guilty or not guilty will
be thrashed out before the trial coin t.
OFFICIALS OF IRRIGA
TION COMPANY HERE
Stanley and A. F. Uilea of Portland,
largo stockholders in the company and
Messrs. Buckley and Hill, wlio arc also
interested in the irrigation project.
Governor Chamberlain, who it was
reported would accompany tho party,
was unable to leave and did not come
with them,
AH the members of the party, during
their short stay in Madras, made num
erous inquiries regarding the progress of
the Central Oregon railroad project, and
expressed the opinion that in that plan
rested tho best prospect the people of
Crook county have for a solution of their
transportation problem. Owing to their
heavy investment in the Bend country,
these gentlemen are very much inter
ested in the transportation question in
Crook county.
WATER WHEEL FOR
IRRIGATING PURPOSES
A party of olllclala Mid stockholders'
of tho DcechUti h Irrigation & Power Co.
were in M.ndi'aa last Thursday on their
way to Bend to look over tho company's
project, whero they aro, roclnlnling
something like i2fl,000 acres of land uu
iler tho Carey law. In tho Jiarty wSrlft
ili D. Turned, ati Ohio enpltutlHt, pre-st-dent
ot tho irrigation company) Fred B.
T. B. Tucker has installed a large
water wheel for pumping water for irri
gation purposes at his ranch on the Des
chutes. The .wheel is 18 feet high and
eight feet wide, and will deliver some
where between 600 and 800 gallons of
water per minute. It rests onj two piers
built into tho river and the wheel is pro
pelled by tho current of the river, buck
ets being attached to the paddles on the
big wheel for carrying the water and
delivering it ihto the flume. There are
42 buckets liojding six gallons each and
tho wheel makes four revolutions each
minute, so that if tho buckets were car
ried full the wheel would deliver over
1000 gallons per minute, but allowing
for waste it is estimated that the wheel
will deliver about 700 gallons. Tin?
wheel is made entirely of iron, with the
exception of the paddles, which are of
wood.
Several peoplo in Madras, who have
seen Mr. Tucker's water wheel since it
was installed, say that it works like a
charm, thu current of the river being
strong enough to keep the wheel turn
ing nnd lilting tho big buckets. The
wheel will Bupply sufficient water to
irrigate probably 50 acres, although Mr.
Tucker haB not that amount under irri
gation at this time. He has a fine orch
ard started, with in the neighborhood
of 1600 trees in a flourishing condition
and by next Spring he expects to have
nearly double that amount of trees.
With plenty of water for irrigating the
orchard, it will bfjeome a very valuable
piece of property, for fruit of fine qual
ity is produced under similar conditions
on land along the Deschutes river.
NOTES EVIDENCES OF
RAPID DEVELOPMENT
n. D. Turney, tho Ohio capitalist, who
is president of the Deschutes Irrigation
& Power Co., was with tho party of offi
cials and stockholders who came through
Madras last Thursday on their way to
Bend. Mr. Turney had not been through
the Madras country in two years, and
while here he expressed great surprise
at tho development of the country since
his last visit. Sections of the country
which were then raw land liavo fallen
under the plow and becotno grain fields,
and everywhere is evidence of uneras
ing toil which is converting this country
into a prosperous farming district.
Mr. Turney was very much interested
in tlio transportation problem of'i this
section, and said that it was a constant
source of wonder to him, not only how
this immense nnd rapidly developing
territory had so long been denied a rail
road, but 'also how it had reached its
present Btate of development without
the aid ot rail transportation. And, he
ventured tho prediction that Crook
county would not much longer bo with
out a railroad.
GOVERNMENT SURVEYS
HAVE DEEN INSPECTED
A party of government surveyors were
in Madras'tho first of tho week, return
ing from tlio Southern part of tho coun
ty, Where they hnvo been inspecting tho
surveys made on a number of tracts.
They also Inspected one fltirvoy of a
tract about 12 miles Southwest of this
place, This survey was m ado Several
years ago, but was rejected on n former
inspection becauso the lines had not
been blazed; Tills has since een douo,
and tho survey Will doubtless bo ap
proved rind tho tract thrown open to
entry. It 1b practically ull settled upon
now, tho settlers holding it by n "squat
ter's right."
Tho survey of utieurveyed tracts in
Mil county bus been wry slow, and

FOREST FIRES DEVAS
TATJHG LARGE AREA!
Forest Ranger Call Jn Vain For Volt
untoora to Help FJght Fires In
The Cascades.
Because of the Jack of sufficient help
the forest rangers are almost powerless
to fight tho big forest fires now raging
in the Cascades 15 miles Northeast of
Detroit, the terminus of the Corvallis 4
Eastern railroad, and much damage tq
timber has resulted. An Albany dis
patch says that a ranger in the forest
service threatened to invoke govern
mcnt authority to force men to go totha
rescue of the reserve,' after maJdpR
futile effort at Detroit to secure aesUi
ancc,
The fires have so far damaged very
little green timbcr the (lames beipg
confined to tlm areas heretofore sgrcpt
over by forest fires bnt upon which
there is much dead timber still strjd
ing. The flames spread rapidly, swacpe
ing the burned area almost clean, and
unless sufficient help can be secured to
control tho fires a-great amount of dam
ago will be done to the immense tracts
of green timber in that locality.
There have been an unusual number
of forest fires this season and property
loss will be enormous. Marshfield, in
Coos county, has been endanged by.for
est fires which surround the town, and
much property has been destroyed, A
largo force Is kept busy fighting fires,
while others keep a close watch for fly.
ing sparks carried into the town by tho
high wind.
The Crows Nest region in East Kootc
nay, Canada, is said tq bo an ashen
waste as a result of the forest firca
which have swept over it. The loss of
life has been heavy, some reports giving
the death list as bigli as 200, while tho
property loss will run into the millions.
Four towns in "Western Canada, Pernio,
Elko, OUon and Cokato, liavc been
wiped out of existence and several other
towns are threatened unless tho flamca
arc checked. An entire section of coun
try, towns, railways, bridges and forests
have been swept away. In the district
swept by the flames there is estimated
to have been 7000 people.
SHERIFF CETS C. 0. 0. PACKAGE.
Sheriff Elkins waB iianded a C. 0. D.
package last Saturday niglit that nearly
took his breath away. He waB notified
by telephone that it wab coming and to
bo in readiness to receive it- Always
prompt, to the call of duty the custodian
of the law was on hand to see what wa
coming to him. While waiting for tho
Paulina stage to come in the sheriff bad
visions of lemons nnd other nice things
that are sometimes handed to a man,
but was not prepared to receive a young
woman on tho C. 0. V. basis.
"No, her fare hasn't been paid," eald
the stage office man.
"Well, what have I to do with that?'1
Baid the sheriff, blushing slightly. "You
know I am a married man and if my
wife ever found ont that I put up for n
young woman's stage faro there would
be no end of "
"Yes, yes, I know," broke in thostrtgo
man, "but this woman is a prisoner,
and her fare hasn't been paid." Ciook

with larceny of a horso und saddle, the
complaint being bworn to by J. H. Beck
