DIKBCT FROM DEND TO BURNS
Proposal for New SI age Routc--Gap
Only 2H Mllos.
A movement is on foot for a
direct .itage line between Heud and
Hums. It will pass by way of
Crook, Price and File. The gap of
28 miles between Heud and Crook
remains now to be arranged for.
The present stage line from
Prineville to Bums passes up
Crooked river through Post, Paul
ina and Fife. It is practieully as
sured that a mail .service will soon
be established between Fife and
Crook. Crook is 30 miles south
east or Prineville and only 28 miles
from Heud, 11 little south of cast.
At present there is not much truvel
over this route, but it is a level
country and there is alread an
excellent road that fc 11 boulevard
all the year.
This change will probably cause
a readjustment ot routes whereby
Hums will have its chief road to
market and (0 the railroad by way
of Heud and the l'riuevilte-Hurus
route will be deflected or trans
muted intou Priueville-Canyon City
toute. The present trend of devel
opment in Central Oregon seems
to profagc such alterations in the
Avenues of communication.

portation to Heud brings n dcinnud
