Oregon Trunk Line Goitig
To Klamath Falls
CONTRACTS WILL BE
LET IN A FEW DAYS
Contracts are Iri course of preparation
lot tbo extension of the Oregon Trtlnk
Line from Madras to a point near the
Klamath Indian KeHervatioh, 125 miles
south of this city. The, ,ab,ove report
was confirmed by Vice President
Kyle, it the head quarter of the ,com
puny in a conversation recently, apd, he
stated ftrthcr that the contrnct,, would
io let for this extension in leas than
two weeks, or as Boon as the Contractors
rcturncdwho are tiow out lookirlg over
the line of extension.
The latter part of the week Marten
Wooleoh, of the large railroad contract
ing firm of Cockron, Winten & Woolson,
and ormer Kesldent Engineer H. G
Hickman, passed through Madras going
over the line South, returning to Madras
Tuesday evening. They stated that as
soon as they arrived at tre headquarters
inrortland the contracts would be
The first 100 miles of the road is now
being constructed by the Porter brothers,
and the work Is progressing as rapidly
as men can be secured for it. The prob
lem of Rutting men for construction
work In Central Oregon is becoming
seriouB, and almost as fast as men are
secured others leave. The heat In the
deep canyon of the Deschutes makes
the work undesirable.
It ie believed that the people who
may get the new contract for the fur
ther extensions of the Oregon Trunk
Line will be compelled to import labor
ers from distant states.
The line will be completed as far Eouth
as Bend, if plenty of labor can be secur
ed, before the end of the present year,
and will give the Oregon Trunk Line
164 miles of, completed road ready lor
operation by January J, 1011. This
part of the road will bo of much easier
construction than the difficult conquest
of the deep rocky Deschutes Canyon.
After leaving Madras there Is very little
heavy work to be done, the chief engin
eering feat and source of heavy expense
being tlio high steel bridge across Crook
ed IUver, about 20 miles above Madras.
This structure it is estimated, will cost
considerably over $500,000. Besides the
difllculty of construction the bridge
presents the problem of getting the
material laid down at this remote point
in tlio interior.
John P. St,evens, president of tlio Or
egon TrUnk Iiitio, is still in Chicago.
Whether ho will be here in time to take
part in awarding tlio contracts for the
extension is not known.

To the difficulties of constructing rail
roads in a barren and almost Inaccessible
canyon have recently been added more
troubles for the Oregon Trunk Line and
Deschutes Railroad in the adjustment of
fancied or real damages accuring to pri
vate interests, says the Oregonian.
Originally the Deschutes Railroad had
to change its plans three or four times
before it finally succeeded in locating a
line sufficiently high to satisfy the own
ers of the Moody dam site. Likewise
the Oregon Trunk : Line, going over the
Government dam site, had trouble.
More or less work on 1" miles of grade
had been done when tho Government
insisted that the road be built 10 feet
higher. It was necessary to change the
location for the entire 12 miles.
Now a private dam Bite near Sherar's
bridge is giving trouble. The site, it is
understood, was included in the property
recently transferred by tha Wasco Ware
house & Milling Company. The dam,
when the railroads located their lines,
was supposed to be planned for a height
of 00 feet. The railroads have located
70 feet above the water, but the new
owners say that they will want to build
an 80-foot damand are demanding that
both railroads go 20 feet higher ud the
canyon sides. An immense amount of
work has been done on, both sides of the
power site, and to change now, would
entail an rnormous expenditure of
monev if continuous low crndes are to
be maintained. A legal fight over the
issue is in prospect.
The Otegou Trunk Lino is also invol
ed in two, legal acton8 concerning rrght
of way and Involving large sums. At
the point where the bridge is to be con
fitructedacross the Columbia to a con
nection with the North Bank, land need
ed fop, the bridge site is owned by fish
ing interests. It, is understood that
Mr. Seufert has asked .$135,000 for the
land, needed by, tho company, and the
latter, contending. that tho amount is
excessive, lias begun condemnation pro
ceedings. Efforts are being mado to
have thc.case heard at a special session
of the. cburt so as to dispose of it as soon
aSj possible. t
Qn tho Oregon shore more right of
way i's involved in a suit brought by the
Trunk Lino to enforce the terms of an
alleged agreement. It is alleged that
the former owner agieed to sell the right
of way for $500. Later a demand was
made for $10,000, and since then the
property has been acquired by a power
and townsito company, which is asking

TEAM GETS SGOOPEd
The Madras baseball team got glorj-r
ously Walloped by the Redmond nine to
the ttihe of 16 to 6 last Sunday. Altho
ugh the score was quite one sided, the
Madras boys wtte hot so badly outclassed
as the score Would Indicate. Up until
about the eight innng.it was anybody's
gamei when a couple oi .wild throws by
the Madras shortstop let , in four or five
tallies. This seemed to . take the snap
out of tfie home boys who were, straining
every nerve t04 keep" the irrigators Ironi
gaining a lead. . t
The Redmond boys dre a fine lot of
players, who put up clean ball, and the
Madras team should ndt in any way be
disheartened by this defeat, as the irriga
tors showed lots of. practice and excellent
team work, while the. recent game is the
first one in which the .Madras boys have
played together, and from the showing
made Su'tlday it is evident this team will
be towards ihe lead before the season
