Prinevlllc Not on Tlie Uollroad .Map Other Items of Unusual Interest to All. Ten of tlje lealing farmers in the, vicinity of I.aidlaw have just pur chased of A. C. Ruby tic. Company of Portland, a fine imported I'er cheron stallion at a cost of $3,000. The horse is one of the best ever brought to the Northwest, and took the blue ribbon in his class at the state fair at Salem this year, lie is a steel gray, three years 'old, and weighs r.Cco pounds. He is a horse of magnificent proportion nud fine action and will be a valuable adjunct to the farmers and breeders ol this county. I he Chronicle isj of the opinion that the raising of good horses in this part of Central Oregon promises to be one of the leading enterprises, as horses do ex ceeding well and the coat of raising a colt is slight. --.- 3 Prinevlllc Must (let Busy, v ' ' According to a recent dispatch that appeared in the city dailies. the people of Prinevlllc have been. endeavoring to persuade the Harri-j man interests to build the Deschutes railroad through their city, but. have failed . Vw the only thing' for them to do is to build a. branch line to connect with the main line running through Madras, Redmond and Ilcnd. The right of way, as decided up-1 on, will establish the main Iiuei about ao odd miles west of Princ ville, the company feeling that llic topographical conditions, as well as the business that might originate by diverting the road from its natural trend southward, would not war rant the additional expenditure that would be entailed. When Princvillc learned this, some of the leading business men decided to start a movement for building a branch line of their own, to be financed exclusively by home capital, and this will probably be done. "I haven't heard that the Trine vtiic people have any such inten tions in mind," said J. P. O'llrien, general manager of the Ilarriraan lines of the Northwest. ''They haven't taken the matter up with me, but we do not contemplate running n line Into Prineville." Prom this it is inferred that if the metropolis of Crook county is to have a place on the railroad map of Oregon, its own people must put it there. Railroad Surveyors Still Busy. The party of Harriruan engineers under H. J. Roberts, who have been camped at Madras for a inontlrj nr itinr.- while workinf? in' that ' lo-l 1 entity, tnqved their cnuirV sfytth i Tuesday of last week.
