Pqrtlaad Barring unexpected de
lays in securing a continuous right
of way, bids tor the construction ot
the Deschutes line into Central Ore
gon will be naked by Harrlman with
in 30 days. The only obstacle that
prevents the immediate construction
of the Central Oregon road is the
adjustment of right of way ques
tions with power companies operat
ing on the Deschutes river. The
railroad company already has se
cured rights of way to 70 per cent
of the 120 miles to be traversed by
the proposed road. An early and
satisfactory adjustment of pending
right of way probler.-s covering the
remainder of the distanco is be
lieved more than probable without
reporting to condemnation proceed
ings In the courts.
