'GENERAL MERCHANTS
Madras, ofcfiaoN
Stirred into action by tho Btatcment
that tho people of Eastern Oregon were
about to build their own railroad to
carry their wheat, livestock and wool to
market, 13, II. Ilarrimnn has promised
Governor Chamberlain to build
into tho long-neglected prairies lying
South of the Columbia River. Fred S,
Stanley, president of the Deschutes Irri
gation & Power Co., is the man who
told Mr. Ilarriinan that interior Oregon
intends to have a railroad and that it
will wait no longer, but that the people
of that district have resolved to con
struct a railway for themselves and
have already taken the preliminary
steps, says Sunday's Orcgonian
Mr. Uarrimah considered the proposi
tion for a very short time .and then told
Mr Stanley and Governor Chamberlain
that he would commence immediatly on'
the construction of a road South into
Central Oregon All that remains to be
done is the selection of the route and
this will undoubtedly be chosen the
coining week at Pelican Bay, when the
Union Pacific magnate will hold a con
ference with Julius Kruttschnitt and
other officials of his ail road system
It was tacitly agreed by Mr. Harri-
nian that a road should bo built South
from tho Columbia river into the creat
interior of tho state, but whether the
old Columbia Southern, now the Shan
iko branch, will be extended or not can
not be told. It is thought more likely
by Mr. Stanley that it survey up the
East bank of the Deschutes river will
bo followed. Mr, Stanley says, how
ever, that should it be decided to ex
tend the Shaniko branch, there are no
obstacles in the way' that cannot easily
bo overcome.
"Wo are hard up; wo need money,"
Mr. Ilarriinan declared to Governor
Chamberlain nnd Mr. Stanley, who act
ed as a sort of committee to ask for
more railroads, visiting Mr. Ilarrimau,
however, at his own invitation. "It
has been hard to pecuro funds for new
work during tho pat year. Just before
tho panic occurred, wo had arranged for
$88,000,000 with which to build new
track but tho financial stringency disar
ranged our plans. '
"Wo will, however, build a lino into
Central Oregon immediately. As soon
as tho construction forces can be assem
bled, work will be commenced, I think
I can assure you that ground will be
broken within 00 days."
Bdth Governor Chamberlain nnd Mr.
Stanley are- confident Mr. Harrimtin'a
promise means another steel highwny
for Oregon. Mr. Ilarriinan thanked
both for their vibit, and assured Gover
nor Chamberlain that his journey had
been appreciated, and had resulted in
good for the state.
"Mr. Ilarrimnn assured me ho will
sift to work at once," said Governor
Chamberlain ycBtorday, upon his return
from Pelican Bay. "I took with me to
tho Ilarriinan lodge a set of maps show
ing tho irrigation projects and agricul
tural districts of tho interior of the
statoi and pointed these out to Mr. Hnr
riman.
"He said tho reason railroad building
in this stnto has been postponed is that
money has been scarce, nnd further
more, much has been spent hero in
bringing the present lines up to tho best
poseible standm-d. Tho Southern Paci
fic has been practically lebitilt from
Portland to Ashland during tho pnBt
two years, and much work dono on tho
0. It. & N, lines.
"Which routo South into Central Ore
gon will bo follbwcd has hot been de
cided by Mr. Haiti inun and will not bo
until there Is n cohferonco between the
Ilarriinan olUcinls at Pelican Bay this
week, Then nioro dollnito information
will bo forthcoming,
"Mr. Harriman is charmed with the
scehio beauty of SoUthern'Oregou nnd
Bays ho will bring a number of his
friends out with hiin from New York
next year to spend dome time with
him."
At In not llkfcly that tlio Corvnlllaft
Eastern, nolv it Ilnrrlliiail ptuperty,
will be extended Eastward, Mr. Jfarri-
man liirpse)f saying that ho considers
such a s.tep a mistake, Thoeo most
familiar with tho country to be entered
expect the new lino wjJ bo built up the
Deschutes canyon.
"The General Land Office holds that
tho Deschutes valley is a canyon and
therefore falls under the provisions of
the Canyon Act, which provides that ip
suoli places where construction of rail
roads is extremely difficult, more than
one road may use the same track, this
law having been paesed to prevent one
company from freeing out anolhcr,'
said Mr. Stanjey, "f think the pes
-I i . i a m .
ciiuicb rouio hid most prpualo one
South from tho Columbia river, thougl
the Shaniko branch is equally practica
ble. The question of route will be de
cided this week when Mr. Harriman
calls into consultation enEineerintr and
traffic officials, who will bring with
A.1 A - ST r .
mem irainc siausucs, profiles of sur
veyed lines, and all data that are needed
to arrivd at n decision in the matter,"
The character of the country to be
traversed by the new railroad is such
tjiat work will be prosecuted on it
throughout the Winter. There is little
rain or snow, and construction forces

NATIONAL PRESERVE
FOR WILD BIROS CREATED
No More ohootlng of Fowl on Mal
heur And Harney Lakes And
Lower Klamath
Harney and Malheur lakes, famous in
this state as shooting grounds for ducks
and other wild fowl, will no longer be a
sportsman's paradise, for along with
Lower Klamath lake they have been
transformed by President Roosevelt into
a National bird preserve. Not only will
the fowl bo protected on the lakes, but
upon the shores and islands and in the
adjoining swamps, the strong arm of
the Government will protect tho feath
ered tribe.
The preserve was created at the re
quest of the Audobon Society, and is to
prevent tho extermination of various
types of wild bird which frequent the
lake region. These lakes will become
great breeding and nesting places for
wild fowl. The Audobon Society, after
careful investigation, found that Oregon
birds were being killed ruthlessly,
lamely by hunters supplying the millin
ery market, some of whom were mak
ing $400 to $500 a day selling bird crests,
plumes, wings, etc.
I here have heretofore been several
bird preserves created in this state,
principally along the ccast for the pro'
leciion oi hea-iowi. Tiie new preserve
takes in ono of tho famous hunting
places of the state, known as "the Nar
rows." It is a narrow strip between
Malheur and Harney lakes, where ducks

A The Dalles dispatch in f.he Oregon.:
lan says:
The presence of N. W. Bethel, locatr
ing engineer of tho IJill lines, simultae
neopsly with tbat. of W. F, Nelson, of
Seattle, promoter and principal ownep
of the Oregon Trunk Railroad, has again
started the surmise that James J. JHlj
is preparing to make good the veueq
threat spoken by him at the memorable
banquet in Portland three years aga
this Fall, when he made pnbjic his in
tention to build the North Band rail
road.
The Oregon Trunk, like the Noj?th
Coast Railway, is a fatherjesa realty,
No one seems to know where t comes
from, no one knows where it is going to,
and no one knows who is actually ber
hind it. Nevertheless, continual, though
gradual progress is made.
Tho Oregon Trunk, so far as is given
out, is to run up the Deschutes valley,
The stock holders of record are a coterie
of Seattle capitalists, but from the day
of incorporation it has been generally
taken for granted that they are figure
heads, concealing the actual backers of
the enterprise.
Additional interest in the presence of
the gentlemen in The Dalles is lent by
reason of their having been preceded
only a few days by a large surveying
party which is now working South from
tho Columbia river. "
Mr. Hill's statement, which by hla
hearers was taken as a threat, camo at
the time when the Ha'rriman projects of
building a road between Portland and
Seattle and of giving the Canadian Pa.
cific an outlet down the Columbia river
rirst became known. Mr. Hill had been
felicitated on his announcement and
prominent business men of Portland
had spoken with some bitterness of tho
vast undeveloped district of Oregon ter
ritory tributary to the Harriman lines.
At this point Mr. Hill made the state
ment, which in effect was that possibly
when the North Bank project had been
brought to completion he might havo
an interesting announcement to make it)
connection with the development of in
terior Oregon.
PUBLIC SCHOOL WILL
W, F. Nelson, promotor of the Oregon
Trunk Line, was in Madras Monday ac
companied by N. W. Bethel. They
spent an hour or so here and then left
for Prineville and Bend. Neither of tho
gentlemen was very communicative oil
the subject of tho plans of the Oregon
Trunk Line, but it is understood that
thoy havo been making an inspection of
UrCil Otr I tlVlDtn 14 tributary country from which that lino
would expect to secure its tonnage
Mr. Nelson has been in this section a
number of times and is probably better
posted on the resources and possibilities
of the country than any other railroad
man who has visited it. Mr. Bethel
was locating engineer on tho North
Bnnk road, nnd his presence here has
given rise to hopes of a Hill invasion of
this territory by a lino Up tho Deschutes.
The Oregon Trunk Line has a survey
up tlio Pescmites canyon to Willow
creek, and thence to Madras. Actual
construction was begun on tho line two
years ago, but was suspended when tho
company had trouble over its right of-
way.
Ninth And 10th Grades Added And
Teaching Force Increased For
Coming Year.
Tho Madras school will open Monday,
September 14, and the indications are
that there will bo n lame enrollment
this year. A number of improvements
have been 'made in tho Madras public
Bchool, tho most important of which is
tho addition of the Oth and 10th crades.
Quito a number of tho pupils of tho
school had completed the work through
tho 8th grado, and tho addition of the
Oth and 10th grades will enable thorn to
continue their studies here, and in addi
tion will offer school facilities to pupils
of neighboring schools who had
finished tho 8th grade woi-k. Of these
latter there are moro than had been
counted on, niid the prospects nro good
for a large enrollment in thoso two
grades alono.
