IN WESTERN SKY
Noticed for (lie First Time Last
SEEN BY MANY SINCE THEN
Appears a Little below and to the
North of Venus, and Is Visible for
Two Hours la an Unknown
Visitor to Our Heaven.
Comet "A-1910" has been seen
by many Bend people. Its appear
ance was reported for the first time
Friday evening when it appeared in
the western sky and not a great
distance above the horizon, a little
lower and to the north of Venus,
the evening star. Those who were
fortunate enough to sec it on that
evening, report thut the head of the
comet appeared nearly as bright as
the north star and its tail streamed
upward from it reaching about two
thirds of the distance to the zenith
of the heavens. The tail was a
streak of light gradually widening
as the distance from the head in
creasedsimilar to the streak of
light thrown by an electric search
light. The comet appeared much
brighter Friday evening than at
any time since. Hvcry evening
since then it has appeared in the
same place in the heavens, but is
gradually growing dimmer. Last
evening it could be plainly seen
attcr the sun had set, but was so
dim that one would not notice it
unless his attention was called to it.
This comet has caused much
interest nil along the Western coast.
Its coming was unlooked for, and
astronomers say that it in a new
visitor to our heavens and have
given it the temporary name of
"Comet A-iqio." It is not Hal
ley's comet and should not be con
founded with it. Ilallcy's comet
will appear later in the spring and
will attain its greatest brilliancy in

JACKSON SMITH IS DEAD,
Jnckson Smith, vice president
and general manager of the Ort
gon Trunk Line, and formerly a
member of the Panama Canal
Commission, died Friday morn
ing at the Good Samaritan Hos
pital in Portland. Death was
due to malarial fever, compli
cated with heart trouble.
The malaria was contracted by
Mr. Smith during his residence
at Panama where he held an im
portant office on the Canal Com
mission. It was more than 12
months after he left the canal
that the disease manifested itself.
Mr. Smith visited Bend last
fall to attend to matters in con
nection with Oregon Trunk Line
construction. He was a great
organizer and will be much
missed by Oregon Trunk Line
officials. He was 47 years old.

Says Road Is Coming as Far South as
This Place, and May Oo to Klamath
Falls Structure to Cross Crooked
River Canyon an Unusual One.
Following the Fcltlement of dis
puted right-of-way questions be
tween the Oregon Trunk Line and
the Deschutes Railway Company,
as told in another column, John F.
Stevens, president of the Oregon
Trunk Line, has finally made the
first definite statement of construc
tion plans of the Oregon Trunk
Line south of Madras.
Road to Bend Sura.
Mr. Stevens said that the road
would be built at least to a point as
far south as Beud, 40 miles beyond
Madras, but he would not admit
that the company had definitely lo
cated its line through Bend.
"The Oregon Trunk Line will
be built as tar south as the center
of Crook county," said Mr. Stevens,
"but as to beyond there I am not
in a position to say definitely at
this time, except I know that we
are not going to California.
"It is no secret that we now have
surveyors at work in the Klamath
Indian Reservation. Permission
was granted them by the depart
ment to cross the reservation several
days ago. The parity will work as
far as Klamath Falls and will then
probably be recalled until we decide
whether to build the line that far
or just what we shall do.
"In Central Oregon the railroad
business derived from the farming
communities is bound to be light
for a time. The country cannot be
developed nil at once, but I am in
hopes that by the time the railroad
reaches the timbered area large
mills will have been established
and already cutting timber. There
is always a good market for yellow
Trains Running by Fall.

trains into Central Oregon, Mr.

After contesting over right-of-way
for five months in the Deschutes
valley and impeding the construe
tion progress by each other as much
as possible, the Deschutes Railway
Company and the Oregon Trunk
Line have at last adjusted all differ
ences to the satisfaction of each,
says the Oregonian of recent date.
This adjustment has been accom
plished, not, as some feared it would
be, by the withdrawal of one rail
road from the field, but in such
shape that both roads will now bo
free to rush construction to the in.
terior of the state. Two roads will
be built, and the prospect is bow
bright that both will be in operation
in Central Oregon in the coming
Under the terms of the agreement
the crossing of the OR &. N.
tracks at Cclilo by the Oregon
Trunk Line is arranged amicably,
locations in t be lower and upper
canyon have been agreed upon, the
conflict at Crooked river crossing
adjusted and all right-of-way con
flicts south of Madras swept away
North of a point 70 miles south
of the mouth of the Deschutes river
the Deschutes Railway Company
will occupy the east bank: of the
river continuously and the Oregon
Trunk Line will occupy the west
bank continuously. At the 70-milc
post the Oregon ' Trunk Line's
adopted survey crones to the east
bank and there has heretofore been
a conflict of location between the
two roads for a distance of 12 miles.
Opposite this stretch of 12 miles
is the Warm Springs Agency. The
Deschutes Railway now agrees to
cross over to the east side of the
canyon and then cross back to the
west side 12 miles farther up in or
der to . gain its entrance to Trout
creek, by way of which it reaches
the plains of Central Oregon. The
Harriman road thus will cross the
tracks of the Oregon Trunk Line
twice, but overhead crossings have
been agreed upon.
Both roads have made conces
sions in the adjustment of the con
flict. The Hurriman line has sur
veyed lines that jump the river
several times in the lower part of
the canyon, but sow agrees to re
main wholly on the cast side for 70
miles. Between Celilo nnd the
mouth of the Deschutes, the; Oregon
Trunk Line will have about four
miles of road on the south bank of
the Columbia, part of which will
cross lands owned by the O. R. &
N. The necessary right-of-way
will be granted by the O. R. & N.
to the Oregon Trunk Line.
Under the terms of the agree
ment the bridge that will be con
structed by the Oregoa Trunk: Line
to cross the Crooked river cauyou
will be occupied by both roads and
it will probably be double tracked
for that purpose. The Oregoa
Trunk Line also makes numerous
concessious south of Madras a ad
south of Crooked river, where t he
surveys have heretofore conflicted.
