people are to vote in June on an
amendment admitting the women
of our bordering state to the ballot.
Western people have always kept
ahead of older coinnvUuitjj-a flu such
the forthcoming election
that it c.hn be relied upon to main
tain the reputation that has been
won by the west for progressiveness
ou all such issues. Oregon men
shduld admit the women of the
state" to an equality with themselves
when the opportunity is presented
at the polls two months hence, thus
doing justice to the sex and afford
ing such additional encouragement
to those who arc struggling to bring
eastern states to full recognition of
the principles involved.
"Ond" West "Sees Things."
As every body knows "Dad"
West isn great booster for the
Deschutes valley and its products;
it is equally 'well known, that his
statements cau always be relied on;
that is, most always. "Dad" says
that there was a 16 foot Oregon
pine board lying in his front yard
last Sunday when the shower came
up. The bodrd Had been lying
there for a long time and its upper
surface was thoroughly dry. The
very minute, t)' rain struck the
board, with almost, Human intelli
gence it commenced to curve and
twist and in less than five seconds
by the watch "Dad" says it had
turned over onto the other side
This shows beyond question that
the dry side knew enough to
come in out of the rain. "Dad"
says he iTdshrec reliable witnesses
to this episode, and ,fuf Flier tlfiu he
had not even passed, by O' Kane's
since the night before.

Much new laud is being cultiva

is known as the Powell buttcs dis
trict, one of the richest agricultural
communities in the Deschutes val
ley. The entire district extending
from the eastern extremity of the
buttcs to the old river channel, a
distance of eight miles, is one im
mense plowed field, broken only in
a few places. This plowed area is
being added to rapidly and inside of
a few weeks time all the available

Three years ago there were only
a couple of homes between Bend
and Priucvillc and other sign' ol
habitation were equally as scarce.
Now there arc many larce and sub
stantial dwelling houses, barns and
other out buildings, besides a school
house. In the last year a stage
station, a school and a postofficc
have been established in the center
of this district.
One of the most important irri
gation projects near Bend is the so
called Arnold ditch, constructed by
the Arnold Irrigation Company, a
corporation. It leaves the river be

long, six feet wide and two feet
deep, and with a fall of one-half
inch to the rod. About half a mile
of earth construction has been com
pleted. It will be necessary to cut

before further progress cau be made,
after which the work will be com

appropriated to each acre. This
allows an amount of water ample to

planned to serve two and one-half
sections or 1,600 acres.
The present officers of this com
pany are: W. J. McGillvray, Pres.
Arthur Ely, Sec., Ed Halverson
Treas. and J. E. Reed, Mgr. It is
expected that the main canal will
be completed this season.
Under this ditch lies a large
stretch of level desert, land which
hitherto has only produced a growth
of sage brush and a few scattering
junijers. Now many prosperous
rattches can be seen scattered over
The settlers here are starting out
as tuough they meant business.
They arc putting up good substan
tial houses that would be a credit
to many a western town. These
are not small shacks as so many
houses arc,' hi a new settlement,
but are .in some instances two
stories, being well oujlt, painted
and finished inside, and out.
Fences are being built, and new
roads and lanes made. These roads
are run on section hues, that they
may be permanent.

IS BUYING RIGHT-OF-WAY
LINE UP DFSCHUTES TO BUILD AT ON'CE
To HuIId as Far as Medras at Once
Actual Construction Will Begin
Not Later Than May 10.
(Midiai I-tontcr, April ;.)
Central Oregon is going to be
tapped by a railroad at once, and
that road is coming up the Des
chutes rives from the Columbia.
This is the important information
brought on Monday by F. S. Gor
don, engineer for the Oregon Trunk
line, which is the name under which
the line will be built iuto Central
Oregon. Mr. Gordon is here now
buying right-of-way for the railway,
and actual construction work will
be begun not later than May 10.
The Oregon Trunk line is pro
moted by W. F. Nelson, of Seattle,
who built the Dufur road last year,
turn wno was Dclitnu the survey up
uic ucsciiutes river last winter.
Mr. Nelson has financed his railroad
project up the Deschutes, and there
is no doubt that work will be start
ed at once. Mr. Gordon is em
phatic in his statements that this
road wiil be built, and says that
Mr. Nelson has already rriven or
ders for the removal of his con
struction outfits to the mouth of
the Deschutes, under instructions
to begin work by the 5th of May.
He thinks however, that it may be
a week later before work begins.
At present Air. Gordon is secur
ing the right-of-way for the line.
The first eighteen miles of right-of-way
along the Deschutes was se
cured some weeks ago and the
deeds have already been filed for
record. Mr. Gordon secured deeds
for right-of-way through a number
of places lying on Willow creek
gorge between this place and the
Deschutes river, on Monday.
Among those from whom he bought
right-of-way are W. J. Cowherd
and J. E. Campbell aud .he has
closed with most of the owners on
the line along the Deschutes for
right-of-way through their lands.
Mr. Gordon says that the Oregon
Trunk line will be built up the Des
chutes river, coming up Willp,w
creek corce to tan the immense
wheat belt of this s.ectio,n,)lafia liiat
(rpmthis point the. rqad,will later
uc exepdctl on southward. Mad
ras is the present objective point.
It is not known with what railroad
the Oregon Trunk line is affiliated,
although it is assumed that Mr,
Nelson is building the line inde
pendently .of either the Harriman
The complete returns from Crool;
county for the primary election held
lost Friday, are in, and show that
the region south of Crooked river
is well represented on the republi
can ticket, at least. Wm. Johnson
of Laidlaw is the nominee for clerk,
R. H. Bayley of Laidlaw, nominee
for commissioner; Earl Knight of
Redmond nominee for 'county sur
veyor and Dr. G. W. Ncwsorae of
Laidlaw nominee fdr coroner. As
win oe seen uy tlie returns, the rc
publican vote is much in excess of
the democratic, indicating that un
