Hunts Man Discusses Railroad l'ros
pects for till Rcglon-Tlilnks Ore
gun IJastern Wlll'lJc Uullt.
IJcnd people have been watching
with Interest for the last year and a
hnlf the work of the different stir
veyliiRj crews working on the pro
posed Oregon Kastcrn railroad, the
new road which is to cross the Mate
from cast to west. livery itidica
tlon idgrifying that Ilnrrimau was
probably in earnest when his offi
cials stated that this now road
would be built across the state, has
been felted eagerly aud discussed
by the whole of Central Oregon.
Central Oregon wants railroad
transportation aud wants it badly,
hence its great interest in the work
of these surveyors.
In view of this widespread Inter
est, a statement by one who lives at
Burns, the headquarters of these
surveyors, and who consequently
should be in close touch with their
work, should attract the attention
of Iliillctin readers. Such a state
ment was published in Saturday's
Orcgonian as an interview with
A. W. Gowan, receiver of the U. S.
laud office at Burns. Speaking of
the new road, Mr. Gowau said:
"Sixteen miles of tliis road, be
tween Ontario aud Vale, already
have been constructed. . This sec
tiou of railroad is considered the
most permanent construction in the
West. The heaviest of steel rails,
the best of tics and other materials
have been employed ami the same
substantial method will be followed
in the future. The people of Har
ney county arc elated over the
prospect of gaining railroad com
munication with the outside world
and arc satisfied that the Ilarrimau
interests, which arc behind the
project, arc in erne$t and will com
plete the improvement in the short
est convenient time.
Surveying for Past Year.
"Pur more than a year three sur
veying parties 0enUl in our
county aud established as many
surveys. The operating force was
recently augmented by the addition
of two other Mirvcyiug parties. All
five parlies have established head
quarters at Hums, where, n com
plete equipment lor practical rail
road construction has been pro
vided. Maps indicating the defiuatc
Surveys mid the final location have
Been filed in the Laud Ofllrc tit
Hums aud also forwarded to the
authorities at the National capital
for approval.
"Three diiTcrout routes are pro
posed for the road through Harney
county, from Vale, the present ter
minus. One ol the proposed courses
is up the Malheur Hicr on less
than a i per cent grade for n dis
tance of i to miles to Crane Creek,
opening into Harney Valley about
.)o miles from Burns, Prom that
point another route has been sur
veyed from Laweu westerly to a
point near Odell Lake in the Walk
er Range country, Prom this pro
posed main line, another route has
been established northwesterly to
Hums. Another, branching south
erly from Wagontlrc Mountain
to Lnkevlew, has been surveyed
nnd still another from the main line
near Narrows in a southerly direc
tion up the the Dttnder and Dlitzen
rivers through the atalow Valley
and the Pueblo mineral belt to con
nect with the Central Pacific in
Nevada, presumably between Reno
and Winuemucca,
"In these surveys the oneratiutr
department of the Ilarrimansystetn
has employed the most skilful en
gineers in its service, aud also has
established headquarters in Jtttrim
where a competent force of drafts
men Is employed. All movements
arc directed from that jvoint.
'Ihlnk llnrrlmnn In llarnest.
"All this work appears to our
people as an effort on the part of
the Ilarrimau cople to complete
the projected line at the earliest
date Kviblc. With our large aud
undeveloped resources we feel the
need for a railroad which would
place our section in touch with the
outside world. Nothing would do
more towards advancing the growth
aud development of the Inland
Umpire than the building of such a
railroad which we confidently be
lieve is now assured. Property
values would )x greatly enhanced
and every benefit that comes from
efficient transportation facilities
would be ours.

LAND GOES UP IN PRICE
INCREASE OF LIEN ON DITCH LAND
Raised from an Average of $10 to $25
per Acre System to Revert to
Settlers at End of 10 Years.
The state land boa id has granted
the request of the Deschutes Irriga
tion & Power Co. for an increase
of lien for construction of their rec
lamation system surrounding Bend.
The increase raises the price of
their land from an average of $10
to an average of $25 per acre, with
the maximum price at $40 per acre.
Heretofore sales have been made
at from $1.50 to $15 an acre, accord
ing to the quantity of land in a .so-
acre tract that can be irrigated
Now the price will range from $2.50
to $40 an acre, the latter being for
land that can be irrigated and the
former for nou-irrigable land
The D. I. & P. Co. have agreed
to turn over the system to the set
tlers in good condition at the end
of 10 years. The annual main
tenance charge is reduced from
$1.00 to 80 cents per acre. Those
settlers who have already bought
laud may obtain their proportionate
partnership in the system by pay
ing an additional $6 per acre.
The company is also required to
deposit Si. 00 for every acre sold,
or ?i.oo for every 25 pakl by the
settlers, as n guarantee that they
will complete the system in good
faith.

FOR A NEW OUTLET

SHORTER AND BETTER ROUTE
Drilling Is Stow at Redinond Due to
"Iron Uasnlt" Rock Large Sheep
Ranch Sold County Pair.
T.aidlaw citizens have submitted
a proposition to the management ol
the Corvallis & Eastern railway
whereby the Laidlaw people agree
to open a wagon road to tlo termi
nus of the railroad if that terminus
would be extended 20 miles, or to
just over the summit of the moun
tains. The railroad people have re
ceived the offer with favor and
plans are now under way for a joint
meeting of a representative of the
railroad and representatives from
this section. The affair was inaug
urated and has been handled by the
Laidlaw Development League. This
league will bold a meeting this
evening to perfect further plans
along this line and to appoint rep
resentatives to confer with the rail
road men. General Manager Tal
bot of the C. & E. has signified his
willingness to discuss the matter
with representatives from this sec
tion. It would be an easy matter for
the railroad to extend its line the
20 miles, since for a distance of 20
miles from Idanha, the present ter
minus, virtually all that would be
required would be to lay ties and
Spike rails, for the right of way is
covered by a grade constructed in
earlier days by the Oregon Pacific.
It is in good condition, with the ex
ception of a few points where wash
outs have taken place. It is esti
mated the wagon road would be 60
miles in length, but even at that a
bctterjroutc and shorter distance is
afforded than from this region to
Shnniko, where connection is now
made with the Columbia Southern.
The plan is to construct a high
way over which heavy loads may
be hauled with case and which at
the same time will permit of fast
driving, so that residents of the in
terior may reach Portland, transact
their business and return home in
from two to- three days, instead of
being held up nearly a week as at
present.' The railroad, if extended,
would tap a heavily timbered dis
trict which would be productive
from n traffic standpoint.
Drilling Is Slow Work.
Moore Bros., who arc drilling the
deep well for the D. I. & P. Co. at
Redmond, have reached a depth
of something over 200 feet. They
have been drilling through very
haul "iron basalt," making barely
two feet per day. This rock ap
pears to be highly mineralized, and
particles of it arc attracted by a mag
net as readily as are particles of
steel. Prom this characteristic, as
well as from its hardness, the rock
gets its name of "iron basalt."
While the drilling is uecessariiy
slow on account of the hardness of
the rock, yet it is being continued
steadily.
Large Ranch Sold.
It is reported that H. I.. Friday
& Co. of Cross Keys last week
bought of J, B. Cartwright, all of
the latter'sland holdings heretofore
used by him in connection with his
sheep plant near that place, the
purchase price, beiug given as
$27,000, The CartwHfiht ranch is
just east of the Prfday ranch on
Trout Creek, one of the best alfalfa.
ranches in the county, and the two
properties combined will give the
new owners one of the finest prop
erties in the county. The sale in
cludes a section of land lying on
Sage nrush, just north of Agency
Plains. It is reported that Mr.
Cartwright will sell his sheep and
retire from the stock business, with
which he has been identified in this
county for some years past. Mad

County Fair In October.
Crook county is to have a fair
againvthis fall in Prinevillc, says
the Review. So much was deter
mined upon at a mcetine of the di
rectors, pctobcr 15 to loinclusivc
were tbedays fixed upon by the
directorate, which also appointed
sutrinteudeuts of the difTeieat de
partments for the coming event.
The premium list is fully double
the size of last year's list, and many
additions have been made. There
arc a firs; and second prize for the
best general exhibit of products
from, a dry ranch, and a similar
offer for the products of an irrigat
ed farm. These prizes cover an
exhibit or exhibits of farm products
that are excellent in point, of vari
ety, quantity and quality. This
will permit all portions of the coun
ty to compete.
Tbe speed program is likewise
not to be neglected. Committees
now have tbe coming races in band

ness some exciting races dunntr the
