men, who watch things pretty closely,
think the catch will be better next

and are afraid that this season will pass
and see very few fish caught. The rise

Mention was made Wednesday of Mr.
H. W. Goddard, - an, important official
of the Southern Pacific, being in The
Dalles and that he was seeking to ad
vance the interests of that road and
secure in as large a share as possible the
business of the country, radiating from
The Dalles. There are some schemes of
large dimensions being thought of by
men who if they once decide" upon a
course of action, pursue it to the end.
It is true they yet belong to the future,
but the fact that they are even being
considered augurs well for The Dalles.
Mr. Goddard spent some time talking
with people, who were conversant with
the country south from this city, about
the practicability of building a railroad
from here to Prineville.
The Southern Pacific are now relaying
a large portion of their mountain divis
ions with heavier rails and there will
soon be a large number of good second
hand rails for which they see no im
mediate use. There will probably be
enough to build 150 miles of road. The
rail 8 are in fine condition, but proved
too light for the bard service to which
they were subjected on the heavy grades.
Realizing the early completion of the
locks the plan has suggested itself to
some officials of building a road from
The Dalles to Prineville and thereby
counteracting any opposition from the
Oregon Pacific extension. The Southern
has an abundance of rolling stock and
none would be needed .to supply the
road. The wool business of the section
which the road would tap would prove a
large source of revenue and a country be
developed, which now lies unimproved,
because of too great a distance from the
markets. People who are well. informed
claim there is an easy, practicable route,
with few obstacles to overcome, between
here and Prineville. One plan proposed
would be to run a survey up the Col
umbia, paralleling the O. R. & N. to
5-Mile, then go up 5-Mile and pass into
16-Mile valley, through Dufur and swing
around the head of Tygh Ridge and pass
through Wamic and over the Juniper
Flat to the Deschutes river. From there
no great trouble would be found in ex
tending thej-oad to Prineville.. One ot
the richest portions of Wasco county .is
near Wamic and in the flat called
Juniper. Not only is the soil fertile bnt
irrigating ditches are being built, which
will allow water to be run over any por
tion. The farmers in that vicinity haye
a long haul to market and for that reaeon
little grain is shipped. ' But with the
building of a railrgad, with the competi
tion of good wagon roads, all kinds of
farming industries would be stimulated.
There may nothing come just now of
the scheme, which h is jusi? been . out
lined, but this ' present generation will
not be much older before some steps will
be taken to unite still more firmly the in
terests of the great country which looks
to The Dalles as its outlet. A railroad
to Prineville may. not come this year or
next, but it will sometime.- -
