John V. Stevens, president of the
Oregon Trunk Line, accompanied
by his chief engineer, G, A Kyle,
arrived here lut.t Thursday evening
nud spent nil dny Friday In Hcnd.
Knginccr Wakefield, in charge of
the survey south of (own, and Hn
gincer Rockfcllow, who is locating
the line between Hcnd and Red

and u general conference wns held
Mr. Stevens, accompanied by his
engineers, went over the survey ns
it runs through Hcnd and gave it n
No one in Hcnd is much the
wiser in regard to the railroad situ
ation than Iwforc Mr. Stevens'
visit. It was learned, however,
that he was not very well satified
with the survey ns ft runs through
this place and gave his engineers
Instructions to locate a better line.
The fault he had to find was that
curves were too numerous and that
the grade wns too steep for n con
siderable distance through this sec
tion. For several miles through
here the grade is the maximum one
percent, mid that wascvideutly too
much to satisfy Mr. Stephens, who
is recognized as one of the greatest
location engineers in the world.
The problem that confronts rail
road engineers in this section is to
get 11 line with n suitable grade over
the high ridge in the vicinity of
l.uvn Hutte. The lift, of they land
is very rapid to the south of Hend
between the town unci Lava
Hutte, a distance nl 10 miles nud
it is no small trick to survey a line
and keep it within the one per cent,
limit, nothing to exceed that grade
being allowed on the Oregon Trunk
Line. This dictum by Mr Stevens
menus that the engineers working
In this vicinity must put in con
siderable more time locating a line

Menvy Rains Swell Deschutes.
The heavy rains of Sunday and
Monday resulted in a rise of alwut
18 inches in the riv.-r nt Hcnd,
rwhich is about ns much of a rise
ns the stliid old 'Deschutes ever reg
isters. The increase In the volume
of the river resulted in washing out
a portion of the upper end of the
small retaining dam, built to keep
the water back from where the big
power dam is being constructed,
and let quite a flow of water down
through the works, work having
been sitscnded on account of the
storm. The break was discovered
bv Foreman McCoy and remedied,
however, before any damage was
done. The heavy rain undoubted
ly melted much snow in the moun
tains, which accounts for the un
usual rise in the river.

all of Uolse, Idaho, arrived in Mad

prospects for securing sufficient
storage reservoirs for the purpose
of furnishing water to irrigate all
the laud north of Crooked river to
Trout creek, comprising about too,-
000 acres of good tillable land.
If permission can be gotltn from
the government to use these lakes
as storage reservoirs wherein to
store the flood and surplus waters
of the Deschutes, the work on this
project will be started tn tuc near
The Pioneer says that it is the
purpose to allow the water to fol
low the present bed of the Des
chutes river to a point at or near
Cliuc Falls, where a large dam will
be constructed and the water di
verted to the main irrigation canal
which will be 60 feet -wide and
about four feet deep on the level
where the canal leaves the. Des
chutes. It will then take the most
natural course across the Peninsula
to Crooked river, where a crossing
will be made near the surveys of
the Oregon Trunk and Harriman
railway lines. There a bridge
flume will be constructed across the
river. The canal will then follow
the high ground around the west
slope of Juniper Butte, going
through Opal Prairie and watering
the Haystack country on the right
and covering the little plnins on the
left before reaching Willow Creek
canyon, which will be bridged. sim
