RETURN TO MADRAS
The Central Oregon railroad .survey
ors, who were cainped at Culver or a"
week, while the survey between Madras
and Trail Crossing was being' made, ret.
turned to Madras last Saturday. They
will probably bo engaged next on tho
survey between this place and Shaniko,
along tho route of tho old Columbia
Kobert'Itea, who is In charge of the
survey, says a good route between this
place and Trail Crossing can be secured,
if it should be decided to build that
way, anil that tho line- would be one
that could bo easily constructed. The
only expensive piece of work on the
line is tho crossing over Crooked Itfver
near troll Crossing, and a much better
crossing can bo secured thero than had
been thought possible.
