It appears that the McKenzie rond
from Sisters has had no repairing
from Crook County for many years
and that I.auc County refused to
do anything with Its part of it until
Crook acted. Now Charles Carson
of Sisters, road super intendeut for
the lilack Butte DWtrirt, has a
crew or six men on the 19 miles of
the road that lie in Crook County.
The Uuttc district, it happens, is
the richest In the county, having
taxable property valued at 1,078,

Tragic Death of I'lonoer McKenzie,
Route Atatl Carrier.
The "Old McKenzie Uoute" well
deserves its appellation of "old,"
according to the story of its early
days that comes to light now that
the road Is to be re-mndc into a
trans-state highway. It was back
In the 60' that John Craig, aided
by Oeorgc Milllcan! firm undertook
the construction of the road across
the Cascades into the then uninhab
ited Central Oregon regions. The
routefor many years a toll road
provided access and egress to and
from the big interior county lor
sumriics. cattle, sheen and wool
Mlliicnu, alone of the pioneer road
builders, survives. He is a widely
known cattle man living some 38
miles southeast of Hcnd in the
country that no rapidly is being
"settled up" by 320 acre home
steaders. John Craig, the man who planned
the McKenzie road, met his death
while making his way along the
route no much of which he himself
had built. Craig carried the mail
between Uugenc and Camp Polk,
where now is the Charles Hind-
man ranch, a mile northeast of
Sisters. At the vcrv summit of
the route he had a cabin, where he
rested halfway on his trip. Here
he kept a supDly of pitch wood,
already for the match when, he
came along on n mid-winter trip,
with the thermometer far below
It was during n tremcudouslycold
snap, that the old mall man came
to his cabin one uight to find all
his wood burned. No record re
mulns of the carrier's ending, aside
from the briefest note. Many
weeks later his body was found near
the cabin, where he had fallen and
frozen, evidently exhausted as he
was Kecking wood.

Harriman Deschutes Road Will Build
From Redmond to Crescent
South Work on Oregon
Trunk Soon.
Ilend will have two railroads'.
point on the Oregon Trunk will be continued in the near future. Such
is the brace of all-important announcements that this week have come
from the two railroad chiefs, Judge Robert S. Iovctt, head of all the
Harriman system and John P. Stevens, President of the Oregon
Trunk, furthermore, the rumors and reports among the railroaders
near town that work soon is to be commenced on the Hill cast-and-west
line from Hcnd arc becoming more persistent.
Judge Loved announced the extension of the Deschutes road from
Redmond, to connect with the Klamath-Natron cut-off at or near Cres
cent. The extension will be approximately So miles in length. The
announcement comes after a 750 mile auto trip through Central Oregon
just completed by the Harriman chief. Any statement regarding fur
ther Harriman plans was withheld, as was the exact date when the
work would be continued south from Redmond.
When President Stevcus said that construction would be resumed
shortly on the O. T. south of Bend
intention of building across the Cascades, in order to connect with the
Pacific & Kastern, the latter road being the property of the Hill system,
now extending 16 miles northeastward from Medford. This doubtless
means railroad access to the Crater Lake National Park.
Today Chief Engineer Dudd and Malcolm McPhec, ol Henry &
McPhce, were in Dcnd a few hours on their way to Crescent.
Word comes from Crescent that Charley Johnson is assembling a
force of men to clear right-of-way
derstanding there is thut work on the line between Bend and the Klam
ath reservation will be resumed in a few days.
Sliver Lake Slock Men Ifl Pursuit of
Horse Stealers.
The Silver Lake country is in
arms auu citizen posses arc uoi
uiKiti the trail of a bunch of horse
rustlers, reports J. S. Wakefield of
Silver Lake. Last Tuesday the
absence of much stock was noted
including several mules belonging
to Lane Brothers and more than 30
horses owned by the Lanes, Hill
Ousley, B J. Deadmond, Dodson
and Gcrkiugs and others. On
Wednesday K B Brewer, Frank
McOroom and- Klnnear Buick
started on the trail of the thieves
Yesterday a party of seven more
joined the first, all armed and out
lor blood.
The pursuers have found the
trail, which leads towards Califor
nia. Information from n herder
who suwf the htolen stock shows
that the rustlers have but a day or
two lead. A patty of men who
have been camping in the moun
tains and who have disappeared ar.e
suspected. Evidently it is the In
tention to rush tnc siock to some
California town and there sell it.
Three New EstaBUsHmeMS Are to

Three more near beer establish

Shireman the building being erected
by Harry Hill has been sold by the

name as yet is unknown, and who
will use it as a soft drink saloon
The building immediately south of

First Crop on Experiment Farm
Shows Country's I'rotttKtivness,
A splendid apple crop has been
harvested on the Experiment
Farm, this being the first bearing
year. Unfortunately it was nec
essary to pick the apples before
they had entirely matured, so rap
Idly were they disappearing after
dark. The apples are large,
striooth and firm, and the trees bore
hcnvily. Undoubtedly next year
will sec a big crop.
frhis is practically the first of the
orchards near Bend to come iuto
bearing, and the rather remarkable
results of this first yield indicate
very clearly what may be expected
of the country an a fruit producer.
