If the country will produce
traffic to lupport railroads, I think
we ought lo build the railroads,"
ald I'reildcnt kovett, of the liar
rlman system, in llentl yesterday.
He put npcclal stress on the "we,"
meaning the Harriman intercuts.
"I had never personally examined
interior Oregon," he continued
"and atn taking thin trip for the
purpose of looking into native
caudltiouR and Retting acquainted
with the country. I find there is
plenty of It.
s "I wanted more particularly to
get an idea of the route of our pro
poud line between Ontario and
Ode!l (Crescent). We have a pre
liminary survey for a Hue there.
We may build there or we may
change tbe line materially."
"la there a possibility that your
line to Ontario may join your
north-and-sonth line nt Hcnd?"
"I don't believe I ought to dis
cuss that," was the non-committal
"This country will have trans
portatlou 100 11. I know of no
rcAsou for interruption of work
now under way. Wc ore already
committed to construction of a line
from the Columbia to this vicinity,
and wc are building the Natron
Klamath road, Ikyond these no
announcements are yet ready.
Clearly the prescut is not a good
time to float railroad securities and
the raising of money for new enter
prises is something of a problem.
Kvcrvtblng will doubtless work out
all right in its time, but it is uot
quite wise to promise too much for
the future. I niuit say that the
agricultural value of the region we
have traversed docs not seem to me
above question. Of course there
will be other traffic."

The Importance of securing fine
exhibits for the Great Northern

dividual members pledged them
selves to get actively Into the work.
A committee was appointed to aid
der construction by Steidl and
Tweet. The fact that both visitors
asked Mr. Steidl to keep accurate
account of all expenses there, with
the evident idea of taking over the
work for diversion puroscs later,
along lines previously contemplated,
is regarded as an indication that an
adjustment of I). I. & P. affairs is
practicnlly concluded. Both men
hurried back Hast.

when people examine and review what has taken place here in
the past year, they can't help but say Bend has done wonders,

The formal meeting adjourned to
an excellent banquet at the Star
Bakery, after which occurred more
refreshment, cigars and discussion
at the C. O. R. Co.'s offices It
was decided to hold another meet
ing Monday afternoon for the pur
nose of discussing ways and means
for a larger organization.
The chief topic of Monday's
meeting was tbe best way to estab
lish and conduct some comtnuuity
organization which would provide
a sort of central body for the con
duct of "boosting," exhibit work,
the caring for vis Itors and a cen-
cral club. The idea, as developed.
was to get a club under way, with
an initiation fee of perhaps f 2.50
and monthly dues of Si, Such a
club to have a meeting room, where
agricultural and other exhibits
would be kept, and a writing and
rest room provided for visitors. It
was the decision of tbe meeting
that the President call a mass
meeting of citizens for next Friday
night, at 8 p. ra., at Linster's Hall.
Thereupon tbe meeting adjourned
until the first Thursday iu Sep
tember, when the Board meets at

ALDERMAN PAYS TOO.
City Father Finds Ordinance Meet Ef
"As thou so west so shall thou
reap " The force of the parable
has been born home to Alderman
Overturf with a vengeance. He,
youngest of tbe city fathers, was
tbe most earnest advocate of
tbe strict enforcement of tbe ordi
nance providiog for the impound
ing ot stray animals about the
town, the owners to pay $1 as a fee
to regain them, plus the city's cost
for keeping them.
Recently the horse Overturf
rides, when sent home to Aunt's
barn, wandered from his way, and
promptly was put in the pound.
Whereupon Alderman Overturf
was relieved of one good dollar
On last Saturday a colt belonging
to him was found at large, and im
pounded. After searching for him
three days Overturf recollected the
ordinance and the pound; the ex
act costs thus far have not been ascertained.

is understood that the proposed

preaching completion aud the force
of 40 men, employed since April,
will be reduced to half that number
by the middle of the mouth. The
Sig Clark sawmill will then move
back to the Hunnell place after
having provided about 700,000 feet
of lumber for the flume. Henry
Linster is paid $4 per thousand
stumpage for this timber, the high
est price .thus far quoted in the
Deschutes timber belt.
It is expected that water will
run tbe Whole length of the Arnold
ditch by October 1. The 5400
lineal feet of flume will then have
been completed aud tbe four or five
sinkholes stopped aud enough
water to irrigate 10,000 acres of
thirsty laud will go out on the
plain as there may be use for it.
The new trestle is much more
strongly constructed than any other
on the Deschutes, considering the
service required of it. The flume
is ta feet wide and 3 feet deep,
superseding one that was 1x6 feet.
Posts over 13 feet long are 10 inches
