STORY TOLD BY ENGINEERS
Surveyor nt Madras Say Their Line
Ik not (in flxlenslori of 'I lie Dulles
Dufur Will Continue South.
! The surveying party working
ffni the Deschutes river along
Willow creek into Madras is not
running an extension of The Dalles-
ouiur line, uui is locating nu en
1 tirely new line from the Columbia
I up the Deschutes river. Leaving
the IJeschutes mI the mouth of Wil
low creek the rond will enter Mad
ras, and from their will ultimately
be extended southward through
Bend. Thin A thfc iwws that came
to Ueiid yesterday evening in a dis
patch froth Madras.
The Hill engineers under F. S.
Gordon1 nth making a very careful
survey; permanent location stakes
being set. Members of this crew
interviewed at Madras express the
belief that actual construction will
bcKln Hi the spring or early sum
mer. While the same capital that built
the great Southern is behind this
present work, the fact has devel
oped since the party reached Mad
ras thai instead of connecting with
the Great Southern at Dufur, this
line Will be entirely independent
und will come up the Deschutes
river on a water level grade. The
Great Southern survey was picked
up at Tygh, from which place the
engineers followed down the south
bank of White river to the Des
chutes; then up the west bank of
the Deschutes to almost 12 miles
below Warmspring river. Here a
crossing is made, the line then fol
lowing up the east bank of the
Deschutes to Willow creek, from
which point it works onto the Mad
ras plateau up Willow creek basin.
rrom Mounts tue roau will be ex
tended to Bend and ultimately to
Klamath Falls, where connections
with San Francisco will be made.
It is stated that within the next
60 days this line now surveyed will
be picked up at the mouth of White
river and continued north to the
Thus Jim Hill will have a north
and south line from the Columbia
through to San Francisco, a line
that some day will handle all the
heavy traffic north and south.
The advantages favoring the con
struction of such a line are numer
ous. It can be built with probably
not to exceed a one and a half per
cent grade. Very little rock work
will be necessary, which lessens
greatly the cost of construction.
1 he capitalist at the head of The
Dalles line made the statement that
there ts not more than n mile of
rock work from the Columbia to
the mouth of Trout creek. No
other road into Oregon, built on a
two per cent or greater grade, could
compete with a line constructed on
a water level, as this one would be.
The difficulty of overcoming
heavy grades and sharp curves has
always made thinking people doubt
that any line would ever come from
the north except one up the Des
chutes river. This is the most
feasible and economical route, and
statements made by Gordon and his
crew strengthen the belief that such
a line will be constructed at no fur
the route to )k taken south of liend
is not yet known.

tonight or sometime tomorrow. Just

ple are very anxions to begin this 100
mile extension ami that ax eoon as favor
able weather seta in next spring woik
will !. started and that they hope to
have the too miles completed and train
running within a year from that time.
The line that Gordon has located
comes out through Tygh Valley, ami
reaches the Ocichutcs on an cany grade
just above the mouth of White river. It
rroote the Dcchutcs about -the old
Maupiu ferry und keeps on the cot hank
from that point The grade up -the Des
chutes is very cay. being about ts feet
to the tniic, and from the mouth of Wil
low creek to Madras it will take about
two percent climb to overcome the dif
ference iu elevation.
The people in charge of the Great
Southern have great plans, and are not
building a road like the Columbia South
ern, one that skims the surface of the
ground and goes up one hill and down
another, but their line is built on the
best poviiblc grades, aud with the elimi
nation of sharp curves as much as possi
ble. They plan upon ultimately build
ing across the state, down Pitt river in
northern California and reaching an out
let in tnc tvicreincnto valley at KcrKling.
This will Rive them connections with
three transcontinental lines, the Great
Northern aud the Harriman line on the
north and the Wcstcru Pacific of the
Gould lines on the south.
Mr. Gordon expect that his party of
surveyors will reach Madras in about a
month. There is no doubt that he favors
the Willow creek gorge as a pass from
the Deschutes up on to the plateau lands
and should he recommend it there is no
doubt that this pass will "be adopted
when the road is built. The distance
from the mouth of Willowcrecloto 'Mad
ras is about eight miles,' iudl'ttrcttditTer
ence in elevation a little less than 800
SETTLERS WIN THEIR POINTS.
Report Submitted at Last Saturday's
Meeting Shows Above Result.
At a meeting held in thei B. M.
hall in Bend last Saturday after
noon the Deschutes Settlors' Asso
ciation heard reports from the com
mittee sent to Salem to la: before
the state land board certaini griev
ances against the contraband nil
ings of the Deschutes Irrigation &
Power Company. ,.
A complaint carrying 141 points
was brought to the attention of the
land board. Eleven of these were
decided in favor of the settlers. The
board refused to rule on 1 the other
three, considering it would be ex
ceeding its authority in doing so.
These three( points are lefttmiithe
same standing lostibefore the'eom
plaint was submitted and will un
doubtedly 1 be- deckled in nrteet case
in the courts at spme futurfl time.
There were two, points) -Upon
which the settlers' plctcod most em
phasis. These wereltheiamouiit-of
water to be delivered'- oh ' the ; set
tler's land, theitima of its-delivery
and the point nt whfch ttlohould be
measured. And nlso the- inten
tion that notes given by settlers -to
the company tb Batisfy oblications
against their land wercp not nego
tiable. Both- ihese points were
gratited by tone board.
W. J. Ward, representing the
Brooking Box & Lumber Com
pany of Highlands, California, re
turned Wednesday from a week's
trip in the timber south of Bend.
To a Bulletin rcoortcr Mr. Ward
stated that hfs company desired to
purchase about . 50,000 acres of
Deschutes pine lands. As sqou as
this timber was opened to tha.mar-.
ktts by transportation1 facilities, it
would be logged, manufactured in
the rough and the s hooks shipped
to the company's. .mills, iu Califor
nia, where it would be made into
Mr. Ward is making a very care
ful inspection oEthcitimber through
this region. .Ije.. has . worked. in
Southern Oregon .parthi as far as
Mt. Pitt, north and. west, of Klam
ath. He ha3ral5 boen through
the country west qf .the Deschutes
river, and states it-is now his pur
pose to give,- tho same careful at
tention to the timbcr.lyiiig east of
the river and south of Bend. This,
morning hc started this work on
the timber lying between town and
the ice caves. r.
InMr. Ward's estimation, log
ging in the Deschutes country is
primarily a railroad proposition.
The absence of underbrush and the
typography of the cptniry make it
an easy undertakin'to construct a.
locjrinc road sinmlv lav the ties
on the surface of the ground and
tap the timber in all directions.
Wherever the final purchase of
timber is made there will this com
pany's mill be located.
