While the petition bears the
names of outy tweaty-uine crsons

house built some distance from the

YOUNO HOME BURNED.
Planus Destroy Lytle Realdence of
The home of J. V. Young in Ly
tic was totally destroyed by fire on
Saturday afternoon at a little after
The fire was first seen by Mrs.
A. R. Strong. She called John
Stcidl, who was working about hh
house cloc by. When Mr. Stcidl
reached the house it was a furnace
of flame, and only with much dif
ficulty was he and those who quick
ly came to his aid able to rescue
two trunks nnd a sewing machine,
which alone of everything iu the
house, were, saved.
When the fire was discovered no
one was at home. It is supposed
that the fire originated from a
spark thrown out from the open
fire place in the living room. Cer
tainly this, the cast end of the build
ing, was the first in flames.
The building, a two story frame
dwelling, is the property of A. R
Dailies, formerly a resident of
Rend. There was no insurance on

Saturday night in Portland,
President Louis Hill of the Great
Northern spoke of the possibility
of continuing the Oregon Trunk
south of Rend. He added, how
"Mr. Stevens has charge of this
work and I don't know what his
plans arc. A number of routes
have been surveyed south of Rend
however. Ouc of these provides
for a terminus at Medford. That
line will have to be built. Another
leads to Klamath Falls. It is prob
able that an extension will reach
that place too.in a short time.
"Rut when it comes to entering
California I believe that our system
will draw the line. We expect to
develop Oregon, but don't see any
reason why we should go to Cali
fornia," udded Mr. Hill, as usual
making special effort to discredit
any possible Hill interest Calif
"The completion of the Oregon
Trunk road to Madras should be
made a public event," declared Mr.
Hill. The fuct thut this is about
the only big piece of railroad work
at present under construction in
the United States gives it almost
Despite his hint of a possible re
newal of construction southward in
Central Oregon Mr, Hill later made
the significant statement that the
G. N. was not contemplating any
new construction at the present
time, iu connection with his views
regarding the "hostile legislation"
respecting railroads, nnd its result
ing suppression of their expansion.
"From the inquiries we arc re
ceiving lit out eastern offices right
now," said Mr. Hill, "I know
positively that thousands of fami
lies will flock into Central Oregon
as soon as the Deschutes Valley
line is completed" Already sev
rral carloads of settlers supplies are
on their way across the continent,
to be brought toward Rend as soon
us the rails arc down.
At a stockholders meeting of the
