Another crew of railroad survey
or will soon be in Iiend.nud anoth
er survey for a new road will ere
long reach this place. For several
months there have been numerous
reports that a line would be sur
veyed into this place from the south
east, branching from the Natron
Ontario survey at Uurns. The re
j)ort is now verified and in due time
the surveyors will be stationed at
Chief Hngineer Waggener of the
Oregon Sliort Line, who was in
these parts on a tour of inspection,
returned to Hend last Saturday
from a trip into the mountains west
of Odell. While here he rented
the building formerly occupied by
Hugh O' Kane's cigar store and
stated that he wanted it for office
rooms. He will make Hend his
headquarters for some time and the
work of running. tile different sur
veys west from Ontario across this
section of the state will lc directed
from Hend. Sunday Mr. WaReener
left for Hums where he has his
present headquarters. He will oc
cupy the Hend offices about June 6.
Une crew working tins way from
Hums is now in the vicinity of
Price's ranch, about 60 miles south
east of Hend. At the rate at which
they progress, the survey will reach
Hend at no far distant date.
Hend people who arc interested
in railroad news and they include
the total population, men, women
and children have been question
ing the significance of this new sur
vey. This is how they have it fig
ured out: a hue from Hums to
Hend, connecting here with the one
already surveyed from Madras
toward Klamath Palls, would fur
nish a direct route from Ontario to
Portland, with n line running up
the Deschutes river from its mouth
to Madras. Such a road would
have an easy grade and would do
away with the climb over the Cas
cade mountains. Some of Demi's
most conservative citizens believe
that the surveying of this line con
tains indications that Hend will ul
timately be on a through line from
Portland to Chicago via Ontario.
Railroad News Notes.
A traveller passing through Demi
the first of the week said that on
his way from Portland he saw men
grading at the mouth of the Qcs
chutes. This verifies the report of
railroad construction up the canyon
of the Deschutes river.
Postmaster Grant is receiving let
ters for different members of the
Oregon lvastern crew of surveyors
who worked through Demi under
Chief Graham last winter. Wheth
er this is indicative that the crew
is already on its way back to' begin
cross-section work cannot at present
be determined. It is known, how
ever, that such is Chief Graham's
Action Brought to Obtain Possession
of a Circular Saw.
The case tried in Justice Iillis'
court last Tuesday of the Pilot
Hutlc Development Co. vs. S. II.
Dorrancc of Sisters, in which an
action in replevin was brought to
recover josscssiou or a circular saw,
was decided in favorof the plaintiff.
Damages amounting to jiG and
costs of action, alxnit 535, wcie
charged against defendant.
Sonic time last fall the P. D. D.
Co. entered into contract with Mr
Dorrancc to put three saws in good
condition for sawing. Dorrancc took
the saws, hammered them, and re
turned them to the company, claim
ing they were in good shape. This
the company denied and returned
the saws to Dorrancc for better
work. Whereupon Dorrancc again
went to work on the saws, put
them in good condition, and pre
sented a second bill for his services,
claiming the saws were all right
when first delivered. The P. D. D.
Co. refused to pay .the second bill
on the grounds that the saws when
first returned were not fit lor use,
therefore Dorrancc had not fulfilled
his part of the original contract.
Dorrancc delircrcd two saws and
kept possession of one, claiming a
lien on it as payment for the work
on the three. Whereupon the P.
D. D. people replevined the saw,
and the case was brought before
Justice Ellis. From the evidence
introduced the court rendered a
verdict in favor of plaintiff, with
damages and costs as before men
tioned. Attorney C. S. Dcnson of Dcnd
handled the case for the plaintiff
and Attorney Kirk Whited of Laid
law for the defendant.

TWO NEW FOREST RESERVES
Nearly 3,000,000 Acres In Crook, Kla
tnnth and Lake Counties.
The Forest Service at Washing
ton will in the near future recom
mend the creation of two new forest
reserves in Southern Oregon, which
will embrace about 3,000,000 acres
ot timber laud withdrawn several
years ago. One of these reserves,
the Fremont, will lie in the north
ern part, of Klamath and Lake
counties and the southeast comer
of Crook county. The other, the
Goose Lake reserve, will embrace
the southeast portion of Klamath
and the southwest part of Lake
It is known that Senator Fulton
will soon submit plans showing the
outliuc of these to reserves to Hend
parties aqd other Crook county
people and after a thorough investi
gation if it caii be shown that any
part of this land should not be in
cluded in the reserve, the plans will
be so changed as to eliminate such
The object of these reserves is in
part to preserve the water supply
of Southern Oregon nnd thus make
permanent the water supply for the
great Klamath irrigation project.

C. A. SATHGR, PROPRIETOR
The above excerpt from a notice
appearing in the Portland Journal
of May 18. tells a storv that in
terests every tax payer of Crook
county, namely that the county
court is taking steps to build a
court house at Prinevillc. Since
the news first reached Dend vigor
ous objections to such a plan have
been heard from various parts of
the county, objections with weight
sufficient to command the respect of
the county court. These objections,
as expressed by the voters, can be
briefly stated as follows:
The bids are called for June 2.
General election will be held June
4. It is considered poor taste and
judgment for the present county
court to take such an important
step as building an expensive court
house, just previous to a change in
the personnel of the court. Of such
a matter the people's representatives
should have complete control. It
is talked that the present action is
taken to cinch the matter before
the new commissioner is elected,
thus doiug away with the possible
chance of his opposition.
Again, the building of a court
house is premature, considering the
unsettled state of the county's de
velopment. The present influx of
settlers and the future building
of transportation lines may exert
such an influence on-thc gcographj
of the county as to make unwise
the present erection of expensive
nuiiaings. t'resent conditions de
mand that no undue haste be ob
served in spending the people's
Invariably the erection of a court
house carries with it an additional
tax burden and the concensus of
opinion is that taxes are far too
hih now. At the time the bonds
issued for the erection of this
building arc being retired, those
settlers who have but recently come
into the county will have enough
of a burden to meet the obligations
incurred In the purchase of their
ditch land, without the unnccessarj
burden of a new court house. An
other reason why there should be
no undue haste.
One feature of this move which
is exciting the voters indignation
is the persistent rumor heard so
frequently of late that the county
court intends to transfer the
money iu the accumulated road
fund into a fund for a new court
house. This, in view of the fact
that it has been practically impossi
ble to obtain any new roads or im
provements on the old ones, is
justly and vigorously opposed by
the citizeus. It is hoped that the
court will not be so uufair to ths
highest interests of the county as
to do what this rumor suggests. Iu
this connection it may be well to
add that the laws of Oregon pro
hibit the county court from trans
ferine moueys from one fund to an
other. It Is likewise unlawful for
the court to incur indebtedness to
So large a per cent of the tax
payers of the county are opposed to
the erection of a new court house
at this time that steps will uudoubt
edly be taken to obtain 11 full con
lidgrqtipn '$ the question and ex
pressipp from those who bear the
k$avfes"t end of the tax-paying
