A SIIRIiWI) IIARKIA1AN TRICK
It I llcllcvcd Hint tho Wily Itnllrond
KIiijj Dictated tho Kccent Action of
the Reclamation Service.
lliuiueM uicrit of Portland, acting
with the I'ortlaticl chamber of com
merce, are taking stejw to sepd a
petition to the secretary of the in
terlnr protesting against the build.
Ing of u dnin in the Dutchmen riv

strthtion into Centnil Oregon The
titiou will also MNk (hot the right
rf way of the Oregon Trunk Line
leading southward from the mouth
of the Deschutes river into Crook
county lie granted.
The belief Iims grown rife in
Portland that this nctioti of the
la lunation nervier whs dictated by
IlMrrifimii, with the object in view
of keeping competitive railroads out
of Central Oregon until after he cnii
move in nud occupy the field. It
II evident thnt the business men of
Portland are thoroughly in earnest
III their opposition to this action of
the reclamation service nud will
light it to 8 I'mUli.
Monday's Oregon Journal tells
the .story as follows:
What Senator Whcaldon Says.
".State Senator Whenldou is de
termined to leave no stone uutiiruod
to bring the officials at Washington
to a right view ot the situation He
says that the O. R. & N. had crews
of engineers working on both skies
of the Deschutes river prior to the
notice given out by the reclamation
service that il had filed on the wnt
crs of the river. As soon as the fil
iug bccnuic public the crews were
withdrawn. This move on the mrt
of the reclamation service was made
hiontlis niter the Oregon Trunk
)iad surveyed its line, secured iu
rKht of way over private lands and
begun jcrMtlitiK work at the mouth
of the Deschutes. The maps, pro
files and prayer for right of way
over the government domain, weeks
bcloie the reclamation service filed
on the waters of the Deschutes,
were laid before the depaitmeut to
determine whether the proposed
load would in any way interfere
with any of the government proj
ects. The npHopriatioii of the
water followed and the interior de
partment refined to grant the peti
tion asking f"r riftlit of way over
the public laud.
Not Determined Feasible.
"1? C. Ileiiney, supervising en
gineer of the teclamation service,
stated at his office in the presence
of State Senator Whcaldon, J ease
Stearns nud V, S. Stanley of the
Deschutes Irrigation & Power com
pany, which has already sjwnt over
850,000 iu the irrigation ot arid
territory iu Crook county, that the
government proposition to dam the
Deschutes and generate electricity
for the I'matilla project has not as
yet been determined feasible, and
even if it should be iu the future it
was not certain that there would be
money available to carry out the
work, The project, he said, might
he abandoned any time within three
o five years. The appropriation of
the water had been made, he added,
to prevent any obstruction to the
work proposed by the depnttmuut.
lie believes that the public welfare
demands the construction of the
road, but it remains for the secre
tary of the iiitcrior to determine the
matter. The filing was made with
out definite location, so that rail
road building ts completely blocked
nud the timber, mineral, agricultur
al, and Irrigation resources of Cen
tral Oregon left at the meicy of
Washington officials who may or
niay not decide iu favor of an em
pire of thousands of .square miles as
ngniust a couple of dams and n cur
rent ol electricity.
Denounces tho Move.
"Jesse Stearns, one of the stock'
holders In the DenchukM Irrigation
t Power coin puny nud largely in
terested iu the development of the
central part of the state, who spoke
iu strong teruls against the action
of the reclamation service, said yes
terday! " 'If the reclamation service is in
telligent, if it is honest, if it is be
neficent, then it should keep its
nanus on ami let tills railroad go iu
and help develop this great empire,
and protect the capital of hundreds
of thousands invested there. If it
will not help, it should not hinder,
nud it will not hinder unless it is n
part and mrcul of this stabinthc-
hack railroad game which is being
played 011 the Pacific coast. I hold
more strongly now than before to
the views which I expressed at the
Hood River meeting, and there
cent disclosures made concerning
the favoritism shown by Commis
sioner Richards to the Union Pacif
ic and Ilarrimau interests, leads all
orua to believe thnt millions of
acres of fertile Intnl. nud the hidden
weal tli of innumerable productive
resource will lw knocked iu the
head, tied hand and foot and thrown
cuitcuiptuouNly nsiilc to gratify the
grasping nature of a railroad cor
poration which has virtually said.
'Hands off of Central Oregon until
we get ready to move in. ' There
are other places to develop power,
and other places to pump, and oth
er lands to irrigate. If the recla
mation service doesn't approve of
un, if it doesn t want to aid us,
then let it stand aside and not total
ly annihilate months of labor, de
velopment already started and thou
sands upon thousands invested.
Where Service Could Do flood.
" 'If the reclamation service is
really anxious to serve the nconle
nud pump water, let them go above
the mouth of the river to the Aeen-
cy Plains district, where wheat and
oats are 'being raised on 300,000
acres of land. The waters of the
Deschutes are accessible there and
the land owners would gladly give
from 3,5 to 50 percent of their en
tire holdings for water.
ii 1.1 n question, 01 course,
whether the detriment will see fit

lion is presented, but there will be
enough aignatures 011 it, and it will

sit up and t.kc notice whether any

Horn this there is little doubt that
the chamber of commerce will affix

A movement is now under way
whereby a creamery may be estab
lished at Hend in n few months.
The moving spirit behind the deal
is n successful rancher liriug a few
miles east of Bend, and one who
has had years of experience in start
ing and running creameries at vari
ous place, one of the more recent
ones being at Oreshnm. Oregon.
This man is Adam Kotzman.
Ior several weeks Mr. Kolzman
has been quietly working among
the farmers in an attempt to find
out the feeling regarding a deal of
this kind. He reports that he has
met with much encouragement and
that everyone he approached seemed
to favor it very much in fact, are
anxious to hay a creamery estab
lished. Some even volunteered to
take stock in such an enterprise.
Under plans ns outlined by Mr.
Kot.umn it would first be uccetftary
to obtain pledges from the farmers
to furnish milk from a certain num
ber of cows. When these were se
cured, a co-operative association
would be formed and the necessary
plant built nt Hend.
Mr. Kotzman agrees, if uoccs
sary, to furnish from 40 to so cows
for this enterprise. Furthermore,
in order to get the country stocked
witn n good grade oulairy animals,
he ays that he will agree to buy,
say, a hundred head of milch cows,
bring them into the Hend country,
and then let ranchers take their
pick from the bunch. If after pur
chasing one of these, anyone is dis
satisfied with the cow's milk-giving
abilities, Mr. Kotzman agrees to
take the cow back and refund the
Mr. Kotzmnu very much desires
that the businc men of Hend join
hands with him in starting this en
terprise. Uedmond merchants have
asked him to start a plant at that
place, mid he has also received ov
ertures from r,aidlaw ineu, but he
prefers to have the first creamery
started nt Hend. In an enterprise
of this kind the co-operation of ev
erlody is needed, l'encc Mr. Kotz
man is very desirous Unit the mat
ter be taken up by Heua melt.
About December to Mr. Kotz
man will leave for n two mouth's
trip to Wisconsin. On his return
he will bring with him an exper
ienced creamery man to put at the
head of such an enterprise.
Hutter will average nt Hend from
.to to 50 cents n pound the year
through. In the Mississippi valley
creameries make big money for the
farmers when they can soil" the but
ter at from jo to 30 cents. Conse
quently there is much reason to be
lieve that a cruiuiiery iu the Hend
country would be u pnyiug concern
and would bring much money into
the farmers' pockets.

Work on Ditch Is Now Stopped.
The main canal of the Arnold
Ditch company has recently been
completed as far as the Silver Lake
road, about a mile north of Wet
Weather Springs. It has not been
fully decided whether the main
canal will be continued farther, or
whether the various users of the
water will run their laterals from
that point to their land. It is prob
able, however, that the big ditch
will be extended some distance farther.
Rkdmoxii, Nov. 26. We would
hardly be a normal community if
we did not have a blow or two who
are always gutting the wind taken
out of them, but that is not the way
with Joe Huckholz. He makes
affidavit before a notarv public that
on ten and only ten acres of his
forty of Pilot Butte segregation, he
sold this year one thousand dollars
worth of vegetables not including
hay and grain.
Mr. Huckholz has a farm about
two miles east of Hend and is one of
the best farmers iu the vicinity.
The vegetables that brought this
neat sum into Mr. Huckholz' s bank
account were sold to Bend people,
where there was a ready market at
u good price for all his produce.
Besides the ten acres of vegetables,
he also raised eight acres of wheat
hay. No manure was put on the
land for this year's crop, but it will
be used freely before planting next
Mr. Buckholz had a nice exhibit
at the Redmond fair, and believes
iu a liberal application of manure

a few more of our settlers would

figures of what they have done, but
