siderable work has been done under the
direction of the railroad itself at the ap
proaches to tho bridoje that will span
tho Crooked River chasm beween Mad
ras and Redmond.
Tho Oregon Trunk Line, in addition
to bridging tho Columbia and Crooked
Rrvers, will cross the Deschutes River
three times on steel bridges. The first
crossing of the Deschutes is at Horseshoe
Bf-nd, or tho "oxbow," as the place is
also called. The line leaves the west
side of the river, crosses to the narrow
tongue of land around which the river
flows, tunnels through the tonuue and
then recrosses to tb(e. yeet eHjjfs, Tjhe

Columbia River, but also lie Celilp.pa

The bridge clears theO. R. & H. traces
by 23 feet and the ordinary water level
ol the canal by a little more than 3? feet.
T,he plans provide for a, swing bridge
oyer the canal. In addition to tlie swing
bridge, tliere are to be seven spons every

the ordinary qtago i'f the river. The
longest ayan, wl be about S20 feet and

ad,d,tion to, these spans there will be a
stee Ltd,9t a,t the north end nearly
100 te Ipng, extending over a rocky
bed that ia covered. a,t high water.
The bjlll authorizing the construction
of the bridge over the canal has been
passed by both houses of Congress and
signed by the President. The plans are
alieady in the hands of the War De
partment for approval.

shovels are now engaged in preparing
approaches to the ferry, which will cross
the Columbia immediately below the
mouth of the DeBcbutes.
September is the time set for the com
pletion of the Trunk line to Madras,
while the Harriman builders mention
an even earlier date. Present conditions
seem to warrent the belief that this
actually may be accomplished, provided
the two remaining obstructions to the
work are removed. At one point the
Hill line is blocked in its passage of the
Smith ranch, while as yet the Harri
man road baa failed to secure Federal
permission to construct over the 12 miles
of the Warm Springs Indian reservation.
Both roads nro being rushed up the
Deschutes towards Central Oregon as
rapidly as the exigencies of topograph
ical and construction conditions permit.
On the work there are at present engag
ed approximately 0000 men. Of this
number more than half are working on
the Oregon Trunk grades.
