IN CENTRM. OREGON
RICH DISTRICT MAY BE
TAPPED BY RAILROAD.
Large Tracts of Rich Land Soon to
Be Reclaimed by Irrigation Ditches
Under Carey Act Contracts Being
In writing of the wonderful re
sources of Central Oregon, the staff
correspondent of tne Oregonlan, who
accompanied President Mohler of the
O. n. & N., from Portland to the
Bend and Deschutes districts last
From Prlnevllle the party drove to
uunu, uescniues or I.ytle, the three
townsltcs Joining each other about
30 miles southeast of Prlnevllle The
greater part of the 30-mlle drive was
through juniper timber, some of the
largest specimens of this tree being
nearly flvo feet In diameter. Rut lit
tle farming has been do-ie lu this
section except up near tie hills, but
there are a number of clearings mad
did the regulation "box" house which
the squatters all build alike Is In
evidence onevery hand,
Will Be Irrigated.
Most of this land Is schoij'.el for
Irrigation, but some very g .ol fields
ot rye which have grown without
water show .that Irrigation is not in
dispensable. Neaj- Bond, tho Pilot
Butto Development, Companv has
commenced" work on a big dltcli which
will Irrigate a tract of S",. O.i acres.
Ono or two smaller companies are
working nt different points on this
side of tho r'ver wi : 111 nt Dps
chutes, tho Columbia Southern IrrU
gation Company will soon bo ready
to put the water on a portion of their
3i),000 acres secured undir the Carey
act. This land is selling very rapid
ly, and an enormous immigration is
expected as soon as tho ditches are
completed. Lytic, the first of tho
trio of towns on the banks of tho
Deschutes, has no government build'
lugs, but Bend has a land oince and
Deschutes lias a postofflce. two sa.
loons, a meat market and a hotel.
Bend also has a hotel and a sawmill,
and all three of the towns have pros
pects and Issue prospectuses.
Fine Timber 'Belt Near Bend.
It was at Bend, and In the timber
region contiguous thereto, that tho
railroad men found more immediate
business for a railroad than is offer,
ing nt any other point visited. Tho
timber belt of (ho Deschutes region
embraces over 3,000,000 acres of mag
nificent yellow pine, vast quantities
01 which are directly tributary to
Bend, and which can be taken out at
a very low cost on account of the
ease with which logging can be con
ducted. There Is immense power ,for
mills In the river, anu most ot tho
timber is owned ly men who' are
financially able to put in plants of
immense sibe. These Umber men
have put so much money li)to the
country, and the demand for yellow
pine at high prices is so .great, that
If no other opportunity is offered
them they will most certainly com
plete their plans uy building a rail
road themselves. It is this timber
belt that will prove the greatest mag
net in drawing a railroad, through
from "Shanlko to Bend, and the town
winch becomes the headquarter o
me Industry will some' nay blossom
into a good-sized ehy.

The Chetco Find Is Assuming Large
The quartz strike on Baby Koot, a
tributary of the Chetco river, made
a few weeks ago by John B, Griffin
and Ben Miller, is developing into an
immense proposition. The ledge is
traceable on tho surface for some
1500 feet. Its width Is not yet as
certained but is certainly enormous.
Tho 'rock carries ihlgh values and a
considerable portion of the gold Is
free. The niine Is named the "ijst
Mule." from tho manner ot its discov
ery, the prospectors being guided to
tho spot by following the trail of ono
of' their pack animals which had
strayed away. P-oguo IUver Courier.
I A Tale of Two Cities.
A story of, lo,ve and riot Is told by
tho Chanute Blade. A crowd of Iola
young fellows visited Chanute. Ono
of them spent the evening with a
fair damsel and ha was watched by
tho Change Joverl of this damsel.
"When," says tho Blado, "the Iola
lover came out with the kl6es of 'lils
sweetheart still warm upon his lips
lie was set upon by a crowd of fellows
rallied by the Chanuto young man."
Then tho Iola crowd came to the res
cue ot their companion, and for a
timo it looked as though blood would
flow. However, jeace was socured by
tho interruption of outsiders,, and the
incident closed with this friendly and
complimentary noto by the Blade:
"It seems" Incomprehensible that a
sensible young woman would chooso
an awkward gawk from Iola to an
elegant and good looking 'Chanute
young fellow, but there is nover any
telling what a girl will do in a love
affairs." Kansas City Journal.
