Mr YfeXR TO HUiLD PARTIIER
Unanimous Recommendation for tin
Plrt Stepl!ffect on Interior
I'OKTI.AND.Or , AUJJ. 21, All
ri;lrond men concerned in the move
tutuit for extension of the Columbia
Southern railway into Central drc
Hon have joined in the recommen.
datiou that the road be extended to
Madras at once. There is no
doubt that this recommendation
will be acted Upon favorably in
New Vork. Indeed, it is said up
on Kod authority that there is al
ready assurance of action alone
lines concerning which there is
agreement .'.mong the men who
have personally inspected the field.
The doubt comes in on the divid
ed recommendation. Some of the
Harriman officials arc not in favor
of an immediate extension to Ik ml:
some are. Some insist on building
to Crooked river What will be
done with these recommendations
can ::ot be foretold at this time.
When the railroad advances there
will be an exodus from Shauiko
The warehouse and hotel will
move on to the terminus They
are not much iu favor of banking
at Madras, where the terminus
would be but temporary and would
hardly justify putting up the build
inus that would be required
Mioiiiu tne railroad move up near
Crooked river buildings could he
erected that would be permanent
For the Princvillc business would
require large warehouses there,
even alter me railroad should go
on to Bend. There would be no
waste in moving up to Crooked
river. There would be waste in
stopping for a time at Madras.
Nothing but grain warehouses then-
would Ik: permanent shipping ac
commodations, though the town
would be all right for general busi
ness. Railroads Discussed.
In the following letter B. V.
Nichols, of Laidlaw, expresses his
opinion on the differcu proposed
ruilroad routes to the Deschutes
Laidlaw. Or., Aug. 22. Much
has been said in the public press
recently relative to the extension of
three different railroads on as many
different routes, to this part of
Crook county. The merits and de
merits of each line have been freely
discussed and judging from what I
have seen and read I think that
most of those who have written up
on that subject are mistaken as to
the facts relative thereto.
The railroads I refer to are the
Corvallis & Kastern, Columbia
Southern and the Great Columbia
Southern, the last named from The
Dalles, via Dufur and south on the
we.st side of the Deschutes to some
loiut 90 miles fiom The Dalles.
Mr. John Miuto, of Salem, in a
letter, part of which was published
iu The Bulletin recently, stated
that he had traveled on all three of
the proposed routes and that there
was vcty little difference iu the
distance 011 either route from this
part of the country to Portland.
With all deference to friend Mm
to's opinion, I will say that there
is n difference ol 100 miles in favor
of the Corval'is it Kastern. And I
will use his figures, iu part, to
prove it. lfrom Bend to Black
butte is about 30 miles; from Black
1 butte to Summit tree on the Cas
cade mountains, 10 miles; from
Summit Tree to Salem 88 mile?,
I from Salem to Portland 52 miles,
' total, i8g miles, by way of tho Cor
j vallis & Kastern.
Imoiu Bend to Shaniko is 100
miles. Krom Shauiko to Biggs, 72
I miles, from Biggs to The Dalles 20
j miles and from The Dalles to Port-
I laud 88 miles, total 280 miles.
it seems to me tiuu mere is an
other important factor that enters
into the matter of transportation of
the products of this section of our
country, that is the light grade on
the Corvallis & Kasten as com
pared with that of either of die
other proposed roa'ds, for it is n
fact that except the Cascade mount
ains tlie Corvallis it Kastern has
almost a level road,, bed from
Astoria, Portland, Ynqujuin and
the Villauette valley town to thr
Rocky mountains, with A grade 01
only 90 feet to Ihc niile ahywhere
on the west side and an the cast
side a Wry light grade over lltr
mountains, while tin Coltimbi.i
Southern encounters a grade of 200
fcettoUic mile coming out from
Biggs into the Grass valley country
In consideration of these fails
it is much td our interest to have
the Corvallis & Kastern extended
o as to accommodate the shipping
if the produce of this wdiidcrfully
rowing and productive section.
A too mile shorter route to
market, together with oitr easier
radc, will most certainly constitute
quite an item in the expense of
shipping. Then all hail to the
Corvallis & Eastern and if it comes
let it come.
B. P. Nichols.
A NOVEL MAIL ROUTE.
People of Hear Creek Country
A novel new rural mail delivery
has been established between Princ
villc and the Bear creek country
The route is about 45 miles long
and serves about 40 families. One
delivery each week is made and

turn and make a trip Thus each
man on the route will have to make
a trip about once in every nine
The first trip was made on the
2 1st of August

fit to those served, giving everyone

The new service was agreed to

It is the first rural delivery of
the kind in Crook county, and no
doubt will be watched with interest
by the people in this part of the

1 M- ,
Small Oralns Ripen nhd Fill-Water
melons and Corn'tWo Crops
, Tljq qutcqmc of the crops this
season has been a matter of much
concern to everyone in and about
Bend. Considerable laud is .being
farmed on the desert" this year
and the soil has been given a fairlj
good test. A remarkable showing
has been made on the new land in
many instances and the results ob
tained have surprised old residents
and convinced newcomers that the
country is all right.
No longer need we fear that grain
will not mature here for the differ
ent kinds of small grain have not
only ripened but have filled well.
Such tender vegetables as beans,
watermelons and tomatoes have
grown uninjured by frost on sever
al farms. Marketable beans, cu
cumbers, pumpkins, squashes and
sweet corn have already been pro
duced this season. Turnips weigh
iug nine pounds and carrots one
pound were pulled as early as
August 15th. Joe Buckuoltt dug,
during July, 1000 pounds of pota
toes from six short rows on his
tarm three miles cast of Bend. Last
Wednesday he took to town roast
ing cars and some fine Hubbard
squash. In his garden may be
seen watermelons ten inches long

various crops have been numerous
enough to show that the agricul
