SOME LIFE THERE YET
, Tho Oregon Trunk Line mil-
road in the Deschutes canyoi
.appenra to be a flead project, so
far as any prospects for the im
mediate construction of a rail
road are concerned, but under
the laws governing rights-of
way for railroads across govern
ment land the project still has
life enough to be annoying to
pie Harriman euterpnse in the
Deschutes canyon. Although
Uie Oregon Trunk Line dis
plays no intention of building
soon, or ever, while the Harri
inan line is making every effort
to get construction under way,
the former road is able to 'oc
cupy" its government right-of-
,way along the river to the ex
elusion of the Harriman road,
where their surveys conflict, be
cause the Oregon Trunk Line's
.survey and maps were filed first
tin the land office. This is one
of the obstacles which the Har
riman people are having to
overcome in getting their right-of-way
matters cleared up.
At the time the surveys for
,lhese two lines were made the
tOregon Trunk Line started one
crew of surveyors at Madras,,
.surveying down Willow Creek
..while the Harriman surveyors
were on the lower stretches of
the river, and by filings its
tmaps in the land office the
Oregon Trunk Line succeeded
in bottling up the Willow Creek
route. The Harriman survey
ors found a way out of the Des
chutes canyon up Trout Creek
and brought their line out that
way on South through Madran,
und it was understood at that
time that a very good Ijne had
,,been secured. Recently, how
ever, there have been rumors of
..negotiations for the purchase
',of the Oregon Trunk Line sur
vey, and Harriman engineers
.are now in the field going over
.tthat line. If this investigation
should demonstrate the supfri
ority of the Willow Creek .route
..it is not improbable that the
Oregon Trunk survey will b
purchased and adopted. While
the right-of-way has already
been pnrchased outright for the
Trout Creek line) the nmonnt
01 money spent tor tnat is a
..very small item, if the Willow
Creek route is found to be ens
ier to operate and cheaper to
maintain. The Trout Creek
-route . necessitates two high
; bridges, one across Trout Creek
nand the oilier oVer Willow
Creek at this place, both of
which would be avoided by the
line up Willow Creek canyon,
..and this alone might be suffi
cient to turn the scale in favor
of that route. The purchase of
the Oregon Trunk Line survey!
would also, dispose of the con
flicts between the two lines at
.other points along the Dea-
, chutes River, which makes it
strongly probable that the Har
.. riman people will desire to ac
quire those rights.

RECALLS AN OLD FIQHT '
1 The report from 'Prineville pf
..the damaged condition of the
. foundation .walls under tlje new
courtho'Use recalls a Very bitter
. fight made several yenr$ ago
ugainst the construction of the
bujlding, undel a former county
administration. The fight wax
t pd very warm, and practically
"very resident of the county es
11 f rtrTiirtri
poused the causO of one ilcfa or
the other to tho controversy
A perpetual injunction was tin
ally secured against the county
court, enjoining it frdtn letting
a contract for the new, building
or any portion of it, if 6U0I1 con
tract would incur an indebted
Hess in excess of the constitu
tional ' limit 01 $5000 As the
cbunty did not have the money
to build the Entire courthouse
at that time, the county court
then let ti contract for tho foun
dattou only, and it was in this
manner that the courthouse wan
built in sections, the superstrvtc-'
Hire being later built under the
present administration. '
The old sectional leeling in
this county has died out, and
the news of the faulty founda
tion of the new courthouse over
which there was so much dis
cord is the ' first thing to recall
it in some, time. Crook county
has a magnificent courthouse
building, one of the finest in the
state, atid the citizens of all sec
tions of the county take a par
douaUle pride in it. It ia to be
regiutted that the building lias
proved a disappointment in any
particular, aud consollug to
know that the county couit will
take steps at once to remedy it,
so that the fine new structure
will not be endangered.
