TRAIN TO COME SOON
That's What Railroad Del
Line to Come via A1adras--A1ay Carry
the Agency Plains Wheat Crop
The railroad party spent two
days at Bend and left Saturday
afternoon to return to Portland,
where Judge Cotton was due Tues
day for a banquet to celebrate his
selection to be United States judge
" Vou have a great country here,"
said Judge Cotton, "but why don't
you raise more alfalfa? That's
what will make the country. That
is what we expect from irrigated
funning and if we could sec lots of
alfalfa we would know you were
ready to furnish traffic for a rail
road." Professor French talked sugar
beet-". "I know of no better local
ity for development of the beet
sugar industry" said he. "The
soil is right for it and the climate
favorable. A family can make a
good living on a small area raising
sugar bect.s, and this will make
profitable a good deal of land that
is loo scabby for tillage in large
fields. The beet tops and beet pulp
make excellent feed for live stock
The beet sugar industry will make
this country populous and rich."
Professor French was also im
pressed with the pens he saw grow
:ug in Bend. Thrifty vines four
feet tall convinced him that here
was another product in which the
Deschutes region could surpass the
world. So he added peas and hogs
to the sugar beets, alfalfa and cattle
with which we arc to astonish the
This country was a revelation to
General Manager O'Brien. He
knew the country alone the rail
road and could see where the traffic
came from. The creat Central
Oregon "desert" clamoring for a
railroad he had regarded somewhat
in the light of a joke; for what
could a desert have that would
interest a railroad? But this trip
into the interior opened his eves
''I am greatly surprised and
ratified at what I have .seen" said
he "The extent and richness of
this region is beyond anything I
have been led to believe. 01 course
you will have a railrouit here, you
must have it. But many of the
details remain to be worked out
and that is one of the objects of
Industrial Agent Judson was
more enthusiastic than any of the
others This was his third trip in
to the country in five years and In
saw an advancement that meant in
dustrial and commercial develop
nient and heavy traffic. "V- are
all mightily pleased with what we
have .seen" was Colonel JutlsonS
comment. "The country has
grown faster than there was rjvnii
to expect and there is no room for
doubt that it will make a ureal
d?al of business for n railroad "
"It looks good to me said Chief
Engineer Bo.tchkc, "and I don't
think you will remain long without
President Lytle viewed the mat
ter from the standpoint of a veteran
He has always been in favor of ail
vancing into the interior. He saw
his own road laid out into a
"desert" less promising thuu
Central Oregon, and knows how
the net revenues came piling in
from the very start. And that
section is now one of the best pro
ducers of the Northwest.
I "Vou know how I feel about the
1 matter of an extension" he re
sponded to n question. "I believe
I this country a very inviting field
I for a railroad and 1 do not see how
j a Hue is to be kept out much longer.
The road must come and very
1 General Freight Agent Miller
; was getting his first view of the
region. It was all new to him
He saw broad acres and nremraiiou
for using them, but he saw no wool
or lumber or grain field along the
railroad survey waiting for the
train, fro passengers were stand
ing under the juniper fees listen
ing for the conductor to shout "all
aboard." So, while expressing
the conviction: that there would
eventually be rt heavy volume of
traffic here, lie vas uot quite willing
to believe a railroad is overdue.
But lie. would not go on record un
til he had digested a lot of statistics
in connection with what his eyes
had seen and his cars heard.
"This country is nil right," he
admitted. "No doubt at all about
that. But is it yet sufficiently de
veloped to warrant us in rushing a
railroad in to Bend?"
The railroad men were the guests
of Secretary Stanley, ol the D. I. &
P. Co., and were entertained at the
club house. Friday morning the
party went up to the hcadworks of
the Pilot Butte canal all except
Professor French who reduced the
volume of the river by pulling out
fourscore fine trout. In the after
noon a drive was taken over to the
Tumtilo postofTice and back by way
of Laidlaw, in which excursion
quite a stretch of Columbia South
ern laud was seen. Saturday morn
ing a -visit was paid to the experi
ment farm of the D I. & P. Co.
where the crops and methods of
production wtre inspected.
In the afternoon all climed onto
the big auto and started on the re
turn to Portland. They reached
Priucville early in the evening, the
heavy showers of the morning
having made the road slippery in
spots so the wheels spun without
accomplishing much. The party
put up at the Priucville Hotel
Sunday a few hours were spent in
looking about the county seat and
then the stage road to Haycrcek
was struck Monday night was
spent in Shaniko aud Tuesday the
party ran special to Portland. The
examination of this country was
cut short somewhat on the account
of the necessity for getting Judge
Cotton back to Portland for a ban
quet in his honor Tuesday evening
Judge Cotton rode a horse on the
excursions about Bend, leaving the
vehicles for his less vigorous com
panions, or those he was pleased to
regard for the time being as less
vigorous. In his ride beyond the
Tumalo he ran up against a wire
fence stretched across the well
beaten road, and thus had brought
home to him the fact that the lauds
on which roads have wandered
wantonly for a generation are being
fast enclosed aud reduced to pro
ductive use. The fence was ap
parently endless but by good luck
he got around it after awhile aud
then lost himself on the main road
Before he perished, however, the
rest of the party overtook and saved
Professor French did most of his
investigating with a fish pole. He
and Colonel Judson left the others
Saturday morning and made an ex
Hraiuuton of the Batten, Tompkins
and O' Neil gardens, where their eyes
were opened to such results as only
"arid" lands can show. Professor
French was particularly struck
with peas four feet tall in Mr. Bat
ten's garden. He was free to sa
that this country is a very superior
pea producer and would grow and
fatten hogs to perfection.
There was general expression 01
surprise over the advancement that
had been made here in the past
year or two. All agreed that a
railroad must come but they didn't
name the day when railroad
tickets to Bend would be on sale.
They said it would be soon.
WATER IN AAINS.
A Pew Leaks Developed Before Pipes
Engineer Fred Hesse completed
the setting of the water works ram
this week and the machine worked
perfectly. Wuter was turned into
the system of mains Wednesday
afternoon. As was expected sever
al leaks in the pipe were found, but
the pressure was kept easy until
the staves were well soaked and
swelled so as to make the pipes
tight. Yesterday the raising of
water to the reservoir was begun.
Regular service will be ready in a
(letting at Hydrant Rates.
At the city council meeting Mon
day night the committee on police,
tire mm liquor licenses reported re
commending that the city pay the
water company a rental of $30 per
year for each of the 1 1 hydrants and
that a constant pressure of 65
pounds per square iuch in the
mains be maintained. It was
figured out that that pressure would
throw water three times as high as
there is any call for in Bend and is
greater than required in many large
cities. So the whole matter was
sent back to the committee with
suggestion that $35 per hydrant be
paid on condititon that the charge
for tapping the mains be kept down
to $5 for 60 days.
NOW ANOTHER LINE
Corvallis & Eastern to
Come Over Range.
PLANS ARE NOW BEING MADE
President A. U. Hammond and His
Chief Engineer Expected In tho
Deschutes Country Soon.
E. II. Dunham, who was super
intendent of the old Oregon Pacific
railroad (now the Corvallis & East
cm) arrived in Bend Wednesday
with his sou, looking over the
country with a view to making in
vestments and engaging in business
at some favorable point. Mr. Dun
ham comes from Ashland, where
he has been residing several years.
He says he knows Mr. Hammond s
engineer has received orders to pre
pare for a journey along the pro
jected line of the Corvallis & East
ern in Eastern Oregon. Mr. Ham
mond is expected to accompany his
engineer, though that is not yet
entirely certain. He wrote W. h.
Gucnn, jr.,. several weeks ago that
he intended to visit Bend this sum
mer. Mr. Dunham also says he knows
preparations for an extension of the
Corvallis & Eastern line this year
arc now practically matured, thougli,
be does not know how much ot an
extension is contemplated. He be
lieves considerable property in this
region is now held in the interest of
A. B. Hammond and that the Cor
vallis & Eastern will surely be ex
tended so as to give this property a
It is generally understood that
Mr. Hammond's profits do not
come from railroad earnings direct
ly but rather from the business of
his own along the line upon which
he is able to control rates. And
his interests in this section arc said
to be large enough to warrant the
building of a railroad 76 miles to
NEW SCHOOLHOUSE SITE.
Board Selects Block 27 on Iron wood
The school has decided to recom
mend for the new scboolhouse site
six lots on Ironwood avenue im
mediately east of J. W. Bledsoe's
uwelling, facing north. Several
other sites have been considered.
Among them is the rocky tract a
short distance east of ths present
schoolhouac. That has great possi
bilities in the way of adornment
Out it would take considerable
money to improve the grounds.
rieMiles some of the associations are
not altogether besirable for a
cuool, notably the jail which is
near by. Across the city plat to
the southwaru is another attractive
locution near the site selected for
the Catnolic church, but that is also
rocky. The block iu which the
Haptist church is situated was
also considered, but the area is
rather restricted there and it is too
ueamhc saloon district.
The locality chosen is high
enough and of a character to give
excellent drainage, there is very
little rock upon it and it is central.
The Pilot Butte Development Co.
has agreed to give six lots there,
comprising an area 200x300 feet, in
exchange for the present school
house lot, leaving the present
scboolhouse for the district to dis
pose ot as it may. These mutters
will be submitted to the voters at a
meeting soon to be called.
In addition to transferring to the
school district those six lots the P
B. D. Co. will hold the remainder
of the lots of the block so that the
district may buy them if it shall
need a larger area when it enlarges
The furniture and fixtures for the
barroom in Hugh O' Kane's Bend
Hotel arrived this week and the
hotel paraphernalia is on the road.
'1 he carpenter work on the build
ing is Hearing completion and Mr.
O'Kane hopes to be ready for busi
ness about the 4th.
A, M. Drake, J. M. Lawrence
and Little Marion Lawrence left
yesterday for Portland. The men
will be absent a week or so. They
took a representative collection of
the products of this locality to show
Portland people. The little girl
will spend several weeks with xeU
tives In and about Portland,
