HUMOUR LIES IN
Redmond's Plan Is Regarded as
QOOD ADVERTISING SCHEME.
CJencral Sentiment Seems To Be That
Schema Is for Realty Purposes.
Pew Outside of PortUnd
Judging from the press reports
and personal comment which romes
in from all portions of Crook county
the county division scheme fostered
by Redmond for the carving out of
Deschutes county from Crook meets
with practically no support except
in Redmond itself. Indeed, the pre
vailing sentiment seems to be that
the scheme is floated more in the
nature of a publicity enterprise than
with any serious thought of its sue
cess, while many seem to regard it
ns a species of "booming" joke.
It lurtner develops that up to
this week not only the people of
Crook county at large, but of the
country adjacent to Redmond knew
nothing of the proposed division,
aside from the genera! Impress Ion
that has been current for some
months that the scheme was on foot.
As far as can be ascertained the pe
tition for division was not circulated
at all in the affected territory, all
the signatures being secured in
Portland. It is known that such
signatures may Ixi procured at a
cost of seven cents each, for the
Dcnd Commercial Club was ap
proached on the matter some
Reports from Madras, Culver,
Laidlaw and Sisters, as well as from
Independent ranchers, are to the
effect that four-fifths of the voters
In the proposed county are adverse
to Redmond's scheme.
Says the Madias Pioneer:
The people of Redmond hare itnick
en novel plia for advertl-lug and call
IhK attention to their town, In no lcti
way than by the circulation of a petition
for the crcMtioa of a new county.

There is evrry evidence that
"much is doing" behind the scenes
of the Central Oregon stage of rail
road activity during the last week.
Briefly, about every official of im
portance of the Harrlman North
western system has been turned
loose in the Deschutes Valley, all
actively engaged ia looking over
the field, and this in what appears
a remarkable hurry.
On Wednesday Chief Engineer
Boschke of the O. R. & N., H. A.
Rraodoa, the engineer in charge of
the Deschutes road, M. L. Boss
and J. P. Towby, one chief field
man and the other son of Judge
Towhy of Towhy Brothers, the
Harrlman contractors, all arrived.
They came from an extensive auto
tour to the south and east. While
the party had little to say, the en
gineers made a careful examination
of the environments of Bend, maps
and the O. T. right of way as well
as that which it is proposed to dedi
cate to the Deschutes Road when it
is ready to continue southward.
Eight hours after the engineers
left for Shaniko J. P. O'Brien,
general manager of the Harriman
lines, pat in an appearance from
Klamath Falls. Wkh him was B.
B. Miller, General Freight Agent,
and Charles W. Buck, engineer.
The party Mopped at the hoase of
A. M. Lara. Their particular
mission seemed to be Investigation
of timber milling matters and prob
able freight rates on lumber.
Messrs. O'Brien and Miller had
many questions to ask John Ryan,
D. L. and C. M, McKay, John
Stekll and others familiar with
local timber conditions. In all the
discussion the advent of the Harrl
man road to Bend seemed taken
for granted. The question of vital
interest in relatioa to the timber
appeared to be what excess of
freight rate to middle western
points, if any, could Deschutes lum
ber stand over that charged Idaho
product to the same markets.
On the part of the timber men it
was said with little hesitation that
a direct eastern outlet from Bend
for the timber to Ogden and simi
Ur markets was the oaly laical
course. The first road so built, it

middle west and southwest are'hovsr
supplied by the rapidly dwindling
forests of the Minnesota district.
It is into this field that the Des

ditions of competition that are wo-it
advantageous, said the experts.
Ou Friday morning the Harrl
man officials, accompanied by J.
M. Lawrence, miulc a careful ex
amination of the right of way,
depot and yard prospects, the mill
pond sites, and the power dam.
Shortly after noon they left bur
dened with a, deal of data concern
ing Bend and conditions bearing
upon a southerly continuance of
their Deschutes road.
There is great activity aloae the
O. T. right of way from Madras to
Bend. Three new camps were in
stalled this week by McLaughlin
Bros, south ef Redmond. Rossi
& Adams four miles north of Bend
have completed a short stretch of
cut, and Rossi is now ia Portland

The camp of Bryan and Young
strom a mile from town, is growiag
rapidly. Much lumber Is being
purchased, permanent buildings
erected and work cashed with
great dispatch. A camp of station
men has been installed on the edge
of town across the Pilot Butte
Canal from the Wiest place.
This week much of the Camp
paraphernalia of Chew &Silke was
freighted ent from the discontinued
grading south of Bead.

At last night' maaimg G. V.

with the proposition that the city
waive its tight to a grade crossing

The resaoa for the reqaeat was that
