Barring unexpected delays fn eeenring
a contiHiibns right of way, bida for the
constrncHon p th DeacliHtea Jie Into
Central Oregon will beaaked by Harri
man in 30 daya, aayg Snadky'a Portland
Oregonian. The only obstacle th,l pre
vents the immediate constrtfetiort of the'
Central Oregon road is the adjustment
of right-of-way questions witu power
coiimm;s operating on tho Deschptes
river. The railroad company already
has secured rights of way to 70 per cet
of tho 10 n.iles to bo traversed by the
proposed road. An early and satisfac.
tory adjustment of pending right of-way
problems covering the remainder of the
distance is believed more than probable
without resorting to condemnation pro
ceedings in tho courts.
This was the information announced
yesterday by J. P. O'Brien, vice-president
and general manager of thellatri
man lines in this territory, on his return
from Chicago and S?ew York, where, ac
companied by WW. Cotton, general
counsel for the same system, he had
been in conference with the company's
head officials. Incidentally, during his
sojourn in the East, Mr. O'Brien per
sonally visited Washington and assisted
to expedite the approval by Secretary
Bnllinger of maps of survey for the
road, submitted by the engineering de
partment of the Harriman offices.
"While we have not been officially
advised that our maps of survey have
been approved and that the government
has removed all objections, po far as it
concerned, to the construction of the
Deschutes road, I assume that such is
tlie case, judging from the published
reportB fijotn Washington In yesterday's
papers,'' said Mr. O'Brien yesterday.
"We have secured rights of way to 70
per cent of the 120 miles to be covered
by the road. Tho only obstacle con
fronting the immediate construction of
the railroad is the question of rights of
way over property owned along the
Deschutes river, owned by private in
terests and held for theidevelopment of
"Until now we have not attempted
finally to adjust pending controversies
with these interests. It was only when
our mups received the approval of the
proper officials at Washington, thnt we
gained a s'tanding in court. Wo will
now proceed immediately to take up
these questions and settlo them as
speedily as possible.
"Monday morning X shall hold a con
ference with our right of way and legal
departments, when theao matters will
bo taken up for consideration. We shall
make to these power companies what
we consider reasonable offers for the
concessions desired, and in that manner
believe we will bo ablo satis factorially
vu iiujuBi mo Biiuiuion ana at tne same
time conserve tho interests of nil par
ties. I am exceedingly hopeful an
adjustment of all unsettled right of wav
problems can bo accomplished without
resorting to the courtB. If, however,
we full after doing all we curt to reach
an agreement without resorting to liti
gation, we shall bring condemnation
proceedings for a final determination of
our rights and what we Hhall be re-
qidred to pay for them.
"Just aa soon as we succeed In sccur.
Ingaclear and uninterrupted right of
way covering the entire distance of 12Q
miles we shall Immediately call for bld
and proceed with the construction of the
road just aa rtpfcily as ftioney afed labor

IN CONTEST CASE
Testimony waa taken ifl the contest of
W. R Cook vq. the heirff of Archie A.
McDowell, deceased, at a. hearing
before Blax Luedderoann last Saturday
and a number of witnesses were exam
ined by both the contestant and the de
fendant. The contestant was repre
sented by M. I. B4g8. an attorney from
Prineville, and ?. B. McDowell of Mad
ras represented the defendant.
The land involved in tho contest ia a
homestead South ol this place, filed
upon in lOOi by Archie . Mcpowell,
since deceased. His father, 0. ! Mc
Dowell, appeared to .defend, the entry
as heir at law. The ground pi centeat
was abandonment, the defendant seek
iny to establish by the evidence be In
troduced that the entrynwn, abandoned
the laad iu June, 1905, and never re
turned to the land, although his death
did not occur until September, 1900.
Since the latter date residence by the
heirB was not necessary, arid the heirs
claim that -they have cultivated the
land as required by la-w. It is also con
tended by tho defense that the absence
of tho entryman from June 1905 to Sep
tember 1900 was unavoidable owing to
the illness of the entryman. Much in
terest was .manifested iu the contest,
and a number of the friends and neigh
bors bf the parties to the ' contest were
present to hear ibe testimony given.
The annual school meeting In Madras
district, No. 22, was held Monday after
noon, With only a small number
attending. The principal business be
fore the meeting was tho election of two
directors and a clerk, the term of Out
director having expired and another va
cancy having occurred through the res
ignation of I. F. Shutt. John McTag
gart, president of the bourd oMirectors,
presided at the meeting. Only two
names were presented for director, A. 0.
Sanford being named for tho term of
three years to succeed himself, and T.
B. Tucker being named ta: the two
years term, and the clerk was inttiiiutcd
to cast the ballot for both. S. E, Gray,
who has served the district as clerk for
several years, waB nominated to succeed
himself, and upon motion the chairman
was instructed to cast the ballot elect
ing Mr. Gray.
The question of disposing of the old
school building was brought up and dis
cussed, and a motion waa passed author
izing tho directors to make whatever
disposition of the building ssemed to
them for the best Interests of the dis
trict, and to turn the proceeds into the
fund for the new building.

The last seen of the negro be was in
tbe neighborhood of the Hooper ranch,
four miles South of Sbaniko. He knows
absolutely nothing of the country, and
there is little probability that he will bo ltl j.
able to escape. Sheriff Chnsman. o.

began a search for the negro as soon ag
