WORKOPBNS IN TIIBSPRINO
First Step on the Way to UcnJ--
Olliers IJxpectcJ He fore tic
1'okti.a.nd, Or., I'eb. 1 I'rom a
source of undoubted authority it is
learned that the Corvallis &. Uast
cru railroad has completed arrange
incuts Tor an advance or to miles in
the Cascade mountains. The con
tract for this extension is already
signed and the work will o for
ward soon as spring opens.
It is not quite clear what this
move of the Corvullis & Eastern
means unless it is a step in the con
struction of a line to liciid. The
extension will be entirely in the
forest reserve, so there is no local
traffic to be developed by jt. The
general understanding is that this
lo-inilc extension means an advance
to Ileud, perhaps this year, and
eventually across the state.
NEW RAILROAD PLANS.
R. B. Mutzlg Learns In the Ilast of
a New Deal.
K. It. Mutzig, who returned last
week from a seven-weeks visit in
Pittsburg and Chicago and didn't
bring a bride heard in Chicago
of some railroad plans of interest in
the Hcnd country. He got his in
formation from prominent lumber
men having timber interests on the
Pacific coast. It was to the effect
that ati option on the Corvallis &
Kastcru had been taken by a Cali
fornia syndicate. Though this op
tion is yet to run to March 15 be
fore being closed, so certain arc the
parties to take it that they have
authorized arrungements for exten
sion of the line, l'rosumably it is
in pursuance of that authority
that the io-mile contract referred
to in the foregoing Portland dis
patch was made. A man named
McClcary cither has the contract
for is acting for the contractor.
According to the story Mr. Mut
.ig brings the plan is to build iht
Corvallis & Kasteru across the
mountains and meet it in Central
Oregon with the new Western Pa
cific, now on the way up from San
lrraucisco. This is understood tt
be a Gould venture and will intro
duce a totally new influence into
the Oregon railroad situation.
Mr. Mutzig says they are talking
Bend everywhere and there is surt
to be a big rush this way in the
spring. In Portland Bend is dis
cussed in barber shops and restau
rants, with the latest news of the

PRBYTERIANS WILL BUILD
$1,200 Provided of the $1,500 Needed
The Rev. Anthony Mitchell this
week announced that the building
if a Presbyterian church in Bend
vas assured' and that work on the
structure will be begun as soon as
the lumber can be put on the
ground and the workmen em
ployed. The site is to be the tri
ingle at the eastern corner of the
irregulur-shaped block on which
the Baptist church now stands.
Two lots will be occupied by the
Presbyterian church and manse.
There will still be two lots between
Me two church properties.
The most immediate necessity Is
the pastor's study and living room,
wwich will be built first. The
b lilding, which will later form part
of the church edifice, will be a two
story structure 16x40 feet, fronting
on Tenth street. Ilelow will be the
pastor's study and his living room.
Above will be two chambers, which.
or a time will be rented for men's
lodgings but later will serve as class
rooms for the Sunday school. They
will be reached by a stairway from
an enclosed porch. The living
room of the pastor will later be
transformed into a kitchen for the
When this building shall be com
pleted the matter of putting up the
uiaiu structure, on the southerly
side of it, will eugage attention.
Boost Your Town-Don't Knock.
Arc you speaking a good word
or the town upon which you are
dependent for your bread and but
ter; or are you a kuocker contin
ually complaining because the other
fellow overlooks whut is not Mis
business any more thnn your own?
Is there any place in "this or any
other state of which you have a
better word to say? If so, go there
and make your living. That's the
place for you. It's likely, how
ever, that you wouldn't be a resid
ent of that town long before you'd
be telling how much better Bend
is, how many advantages it has and
how much the people of this little
city are continually spending in
improvements. But whatever you
door where ever you go, don't
sp'enk ill of the bridge that brought
Oregon apples sell in the Boston
market for 6j or .75 cents a dozen
u higher price thou is asked for
good oranges hi the same market.
The reason is that they are care
fully selected dud carefully packed.
The fact and the reason are com
mended "to whom it may concern."

FIVE MILES MORE TO BUILD
Work on ha DItcliee floes Steadily
ForwardThe Flume Crew
Is Laid Off.
The lower crew on construction
of the Pilot Butte canal is now
within five miles of Crooked" river.
At the present rate of progress thii
canal will fe completed to Crooked
river by February 20, and that
crew will then he released for build
ing laterals. The canal will be
turned into Crooked river at a point
just below Smith rock, about four
miles below Forest's.
On the Central Oregon canal the
ground is torn upfor a distance of.
about six miles out from the flume
and the work of excavation is going
ahead with reasonable speed, not
withstanding recent unfavorable
weather. There is no intention ol
halting that work. When the snow
less freeze of lasf month came the
ground could not be worked for
about a week, but that has been the.
Owing to inability to get lumber
as needed the flume crew of 18 men
was thjs week laid off. When the
lumber contractors catch up with
their work flume construction will
again go forward. It will be easy
to complete the flume by the time
the canals ore ready for the water,
