WAS A POPULAR Y0UNQ MAN
llndy Pound Floating Pace Downward
In Four Feet of WotcrManagcr
of Cllno Falls Power Co,
RicnMO.N'n, Dec. 23. This com
niuuity has lccn shocked and sad
dened by the dentil of Ed Hulburt,
mHiingt-r of the Clinc Pq1Ii Power
Company's property nt Clitic Falls,
whole body was found ( Saturday
evening hi the Intake to the flume
thill supplies water for the hydraulic
ram and the turbine wheel pump
tor irrigating the ranch. Briefly
Mated nnd as near as can he learned
nt present, the facts arc as follow:
Saturday morning about 11:30
o'clock L. 12. Prickctt "went to water
Ills horses nnd saw Mr Htilburt
just stnrtiug over the blufl to go
down nnd start the ram. This was
probably the last time he was seen
alive. About noon the ranch cook,
Mr. Muller. who had been helping
to decorate n Christmas tree at the
school house, came in, got his din
tier, ate it, washed his dishes, left
dinner for Mr. Hulburt and re
turned to the school house. Re
turning about 4 o'clock, he saw
that no ouc had been there, and be
gan a search, going first down to
the power house. When about
two-thirds down the bluff he saw a
hat lying beside the river and a lit
tle further down saw the body float
ing face downward in the flume in
four or five feet of water.
It seems that Mr. Hulburt had
cleaned the screens that admit wat
er to the ram and wheel, had gone
below nnd started the ram, had re
turned and crossed the flume, and
from that it is mere conjecture. It
is thought that he may have had
an nttuck of heart, failure, or spell
of dizziness nnd have fallen into the
water. As far ns could be learned
there were no marks of violence on
the body, a bruise ou the forehead,
but hardly one that would have
Mr. Muller got the body out of
the water nnd with the help of
Messrs. Chase, Bishop nnd Merc
dith, carried it up the hill to the
ranch house. The first ones to sec
the body noticed blood in the inner
corner of one eye, nnd the supposi
tion ut first was that it was a bullet
wound but n close examination lat
er by the coroner showed that there
was no wound of that kind. The
brain also was npparcutly in tvper
fectly normal condition.
A preliminary inquest was held
before Justice Jones, who was
called, nnd the final inquest will be
held tonight with the following
jury: Meredith, McCarty, Sears,
the other mail carrier, Lilly aud
The Frincville parties, Dr. Ed
wards, Judge Hell, Sheriff Elklus
and Deputy Sheriff Combs, arrived
about 1 o'clock today and the in
quest will probably be in session all
Mr. Hulburt, who came here
eight or nine months ago to take
the place of Mr. Thompson, was a
brother of the banker at Shauiko of
the same name, who Is a heavy
stockholder iu the Cline Falls Pow
er Company. He was a young
man of good habits, a pleasant,
agreeable acquaintance, and rumor
has it, was soon to be married to a
)oung lady who lives iu t'ic vicin
ity of the falls.
The Christmas exercises at the
school house which were to he held
Saturday evening, have been post
poned until Wednesday evening.
The brother is expected to arrive
from Sl.nniko some time tonight.

Later, Sheriff Elkins brought
the news to Ilcnd that a post mor
tem examination by Dr. Edwards
showed that the unfortunate man
died from heart failure, the left
ventricle being' in very bad condi
tion. There was a little water in
the lungs, but only a little. It is
supposed that Hulburt felt an
attack coming on, stooped over to
Inthe his face, and fell into the

Mad Cow Makes Lively Time,
Andrew Larson had a very ex
citing experience last Saturday
with n vicious cow which had been
marked for slaughter and which
was being driven to the slaughter
pen. The cow did not drive easily,
and getting warmed up, finally
turned as they were crossing the
towusite, and attacked the horse
which Larseu was riding, goring
the horse aud fighting viciously.
Several persons wbo essayed to
help were charged by the infuriated
beast aud had to seek safety behind
barn doors. Mr. Larseu fiunllv se
cured several m'.-u on horses to help
him, aud succeeded iu getting the
cow coralled at the slaugher pen.
Laidlaw Sold to Mt. Hood
WILL BUILD ACROSS STATE
Present Transaction Meant that the
Long-Desired Railroad Will Bo
Uullt Into Central Oregon,
It is stated on good authority
that deeds arc being prepared at
Frincville for the sale of the town-
site of Laidlaw to the Mount Hood
Railroad & Power Company. This
is the company that, it has been
said, would build an electric road
across Central Oretron to connect
with a Moffat line in Nevada. The
purchase of the Laidlaw townsite
with its adjacent water power possi
bilities, lends great confirmation to
this story and discloses to a certain
ty the intention of the Mount Hood
company to build this road as
above stated. Regarding the pur
chase of Laidlaw and its bearing on
the railroad question in Central
Oregon, the Oregonian has the fol
lowing article in Tuesday's issue:
"Confirmation of the story -printed
some time ago that the Mount Hood
Railroad & rower Company will build a
standanl-guage railroad across the state
Utat will connect with the Moffatt road
from Denver, giving Portland another
transcontinental line, it found in the
purchase of tbe townsite of Laidlaw, In
the Deschutes valley, by the Mount
Hood people. It ha,s been known for
some time that options on Crook county
property had been secured by the Mount
Hood Interests, but this transaction U
the first of any considerable size in that
part of the state to be made public.
"General Manager C W. Miller is not
yet ready to announce the purchase of
the Laidlaw townsite, although h? ad
mits his company has run surreys
through that district. However, at deeds
are now being made at Prinerille trans
ferring the townsite to the Mount Hood
Railroad & Power Company, denials by
the officials of the company are not tak
en seriously. Ideal sites are found both
above and below Laidlaw to furnish
splendid water power for generation of
electricity to operate the road. As pro
jected this new line across Ute state U
an electric road throughout.
"The operations of the Mount Hood
people have been masked with the Great
est secrecy front tbe start. Officials have
not been ready to announce the extent
of their plans for obvious reasons, but
they have not denied that they planned
something more than an electric line to
the base of Mount Hood. Kvery devel
opment in connection wiUi the new road
allows that the Western link in a trans
continental scheme u being built at this
end of the line.
"Ilctwcen Portland and the summit of
the Cascade range, which division will
be built first, a double-track, fco-uiilc-an-
hour road, laid with Spound steel, will
be huljt. A maximum grade of 1 per
cent for the first 50 miles has been se
cured, and the highest curvature in the
distance will be 6 degrees, with but few
curves that great. Surveyors ltavc laid
tbe line almost as straight ns the crow
files. Hills will be dug away and low
places filled, instead of permitting curves
In the Hue.
"The temporary power-house for use
iu operating sawmills, lighting plant,
pumps and other construction machin
ery was started yesterday and works
well. It develops joe horse-power nnd
the water-wheels are driven under n 500
foot head, which la by far the highest
head of water obtained in any of the'
power plants in this part ot the country.
Work is progressing rapidly on the per
tnauent power station at Bull Run, The
iultial installation of 10,000 horsepower
will be in operation In April or May,'1
The Mount Hood is said to be
backed by ex-Senator Clark o
Montana, the copper multi-million
aire. The project is fully financed,
and there will be no delay in its
coastructlou 00 account of kck ef 1
funds. Active construction work
on the line cast from Portland has
been in progress for several monthn
until recently, when work wast
abandoned on account of the un
favorable winter weather. Tha
camps are being maintained, how
ever, and work will be resumed in'
the spring. There is apparently
more real life and ready cash be
hind the Mount Hood road than
behind any other line headed foe
The 6ne good feature in this news
is that if the road builds to Laidlaw
it will buitd on through Bend and
across the state. That will give
this section a transcontinental line,
and will inaugurate the develop
ment of the whole of Central Ore
gon. . In view of the purchase o
the Laidlaw townsite it is practi
cally certain that construction of a.
road into these parts will scon be
announced and active wore com
menced in the spring.

Friday night was very successful, about
fifty being present. Elegant refresh

The ladies feel quite well pleased with
the success of tbe bazaar, considering
the weather and other disadvantages un
der which Uicy labored. Quite a neat
sum was realized.
There will soon be some more dead
junipers and totem poles lying around
this place when we get that new stump
puller limbered up, then some more ash
heaps to grow, good spots of grain, ami
then but that's another story.
