FRIDAY, JULY 7, 1905.
TWO STEPS TO BEND
Such are Present Plans of
0. R. & N. People.
TO BUILD TO MADRAS AT UNCI:
Then On to llcnil-.OHicrs Hagcr to
Untur This Pleld-We May
Have Two Railroads.
I'oktj.an, Or., July 3 There
can !e no doubt that the time is
rirw for a railroad advance in Cen
tral Oregon and nil indications, 50
far as they can be observed here
jKint to a scramble when the jwlicy
of hesitation mid delay shall prove
to be unavailing. The O. R. & X.
is now in the field with the assur
ance of an extension of the Colum
bia Southern from Slianiko. Hut
the disposition in that quarter
seems to lc to make two bites of I
the cherry and build first to Mad-'
ras and then perhaps takcj
the next step to Rend. I talked ,
,, , . .... ... r . I
uic wjiuic iniiiici uver wuu uviicr
al Manager O'Rrien to day. In
summing up he said:
'I am not going to make prom
ises which 1 feel will not be fulfilled.
I bclievp conditions, at the present
time warrant building to the
Agency Plains. The beginning
of that extension will be notice to
the world that the Ioiik stage ride
between Rend and the railroad will
at least be cqt in two iu a few
months and people will flock into
the Rend country and .occupy the
lauds and get to producing, And
bv the time the railroad is complet
ed to Madras I expect conditions to
le such ttynt I can recommend an
imuicdiatq advance from there to
Hciid. . When I see people putting!
liumlrcos ql thousands ot dollars
into rcclaiuaion uork iu the Rend
section r.,tuink they must know
wlint.tliey.qr'c doing and that pra
ctical results will follow."
flcncraf Freight Auent. Miller is
not nearly so, .skeptical, now that,
lie is hacked Portland, as hci ap
peared J'be when nt Rend, "what
we want now is fieurro, we want a
statistical basis for our rccommLiid-

man fro'm his own staff, who will '

with local conditions, and they will ,
compile a xta.tcme.ut showing the
area of land under c.ultjvatuyi, the
recency 01 lis reciaipaiou,,irom a
wild state, the crops produced and
kindred matters. "I wish to put
iu just as strong a, recommendation
ns the facts will justify," said Mr.
Miller. "Rut.it wouhl be wo.re
than useless to talk and act looely
iu this matter."
R vii.kqaii Politics. .
The railway officials here are un
doubtedly, acting iu gool faith re
specting the Central Oregon rail
road situation. It is not to be
denied, hoveer. that railroad poli
tics cut n considerable figure, and I
Wall street will finally determine ,
the extent of railroad construction '
to be done iu our field, llarriman
puts out no money in new construc
tion unless he is obliged to do so.
The question underlying the
Central Oregon railroad situation at
this moment is not so much the
tonnage iu sight as it is this: Is iui
safe to keep that country longer
l)ottlcd up; won't interests hostile
to us go in if we don't? The signs
of an invasion from hostile quarters,
I believe, are now driving llarri
man to make a inovc , to protect
himself iu the Central Ortgon field.
I do not e,vfllve this belief from
my inner consciousueNS ujereJyM)rJ
have run apjoss two vpr'y Hyp pro-
jects fojc putting a railroad to, Dejul

these is the Could scheme, which,

"It would meat! an east and west
line across the state; and if n satis
factory connection could not be
made with Ilarrimau lines near
Snake river, then the" new road
would go to Salt Ifakc City."
These men seem to mean busi
ness and are anxious to get into
the Bend fiefd. And, what is. more
important, they have the undoubt
ed backing to carry out their plans.
ClIANOK 18 Pl'.NIll xo
It is an open secret iu railroad
circles that an important change in
Oregon lines is impending. The
llarriman people want the Astoria
roail but do not rare for the Cor
vallis & Kastcrti. Roth these pro
perties arc iu one ownership, repre
sented by A. 11. Hammilixl but. said
to be II. 1'. Hunuiugton and Hub
bard. They do not care o dispose
of the desirable property without
including the undesirable line. So
it is said Harriman has an option
on both roads and that he will take
both if he cannot get the Astoria
line otherwise This wouhl greatly
strengthen Harpman by depriving

BEND'S 4TH OF JULY
A Very Entertaining Pro
BIQ CROWD IN ATTONDANCfi
Uend's ProRresslve Ouslncss Aten
Rxert Themselves to Give
The Fourth of July has come anl
Kpntfnnd Bend did herself proud
with a celebration that would have
done credit to many a larger town.
The committee on celebration, and
especially Mayor Goodwillfe, are to
be complffiicffted upon the manner
in which the people who attended
the celebration were entertained.
One week before the Fourth the
prospects for a celebration in Rend
were not encouraging, but, owing
to the perseverance of the celebra
tion committee and the business
men of the town a very good pro
gramme was arranged and carried
The exercises began with a pa
rade in the morning, led by th"
Jjcnu cornet band. Then came a
beautiful float on which rode a
number of school girls and the
Goddess of Liberty. Following
these came the float on which the
small boys rode with Uncle Sam
The ladies of Mistletoe camp of the
Royal Neighbors also rode iu 0
wagon tastefully decorated with
flags and bunting.
After the parade the crowd gath
ered at the speakers stand on Wa'l
street, where a good literary pro
gram, was rendered. Victor O'Con
nor read the Declaration of Inde
pendence, and "Dad" West and G
W. Triplett each tendered a short
but interesting speech which wai
well received. A chorus sang
patriotic songs and the band also
played several patriotic selections
In the afternoon iriterestccntcrc'!
in the ball garlfc and the ra&s
The ball g"ahie was played by all
tome boys, the married men against
the single men. pnly five innings
were played and the single men lost
the game by the score of 3 to 6.
After the ball game came the
horse races, the first being a pon
race, John Overtjjffi on the Good
willie pony winning and Prince
Staats on Chas. Johnston's horst
cane in second. Jifn Overturf, on
Mr. Drake's pony, was a close third
In the free-for-all race there were
only two entries, Rob Zevcrly win
ning on Uis gray horse.
There va5 only one entry for the
broncho bttstirig prize, "Bill" How
ell being the only than who rode
He did some, "fantastic" riding
and won the priie,
In the foot races George Long
of Laidlaw, went the 100-yard dash,
with Harry French second. Thev
also won the sid-yard dash, in the
A number Of oilier races were
run, fitrtlisllitfg entertainment until
late in the evpujilg. At night a
large crdwd tjujoye'd themselves at
the big dajjeing pavillion, which
was decorated, wjth flags and bunt
ing and JapaiieSc lanterns.
Altogqtbcr Rend's celebration
was a success, ill Spite of the fact
that Prineville and most of the
other surrounding towns held cele
bratiOns. Tlie day passed without
a rupture and -all who attended our
celebration passed an enjoyable day.
Professbr R. B. Jackson and n
Miss Casey, a teacher in the Silver
Iakc School, passed through Rend
this lildrning dn their way to Port
land to visit the exposition. Thev
are driving across country, going
by way of tlie McKenzie route.

from Coryaflil tlld first of the week,
where sbek has befch attending the
Agrjctyturjal Cbllege. She was
accompanied byj her aunt, Mrs
