Cornell Company Wants liend and

Rood Through Homestead Land
Project Progresses Well.
Just ns soon as the road between
the two points can be put iu good
condition the Coructt Stage and
Auto Co. will operate stage and
automobile lines between Bend and
Hums. Such is the announcement
made by G. M. Cornell, liend of
the big Central Oregon stage com
pany. It is also almost certain that with
the allotment of the new mail con
tracts in March, and the reorganiz
ation of the mail service of the In
terior that will follow the arrival of
the railroads and the discontinuance
ofthco'd Shauiko routes, a mail
route will be inaugurated from Bend
to the Harney county scut.
Mr, Cornett is so interested in
the scheme and so desirious of get
ting it into immediate oeraton
that he has taken it up with the
Bend Commercial Club. He de
sires that the local organization get
into touch with the Burns boosters
for the purpose of cooperating iu
the work of improving the Bend
Burns road. Manager Sawhill has
received Mr. Cornell's assurance
that hc will furnish an auto to take
a committee from the Bend Com
mercial Club to Burns to take up
With two unimportant exceptions 1
the Bend-Burns road is an excellent
one. The first of these is at a point I
some seven miles from Bend, where
a new road passes about, the ,Mc-i
Gillvrny ranch; here there is of
snort mil sicep uiu. n nine wort:
conld change the road's route and
eliminate the hill. There is anoth
er double hill some 'six mile west of
Millican's which can be done away
with very easily.
Tne proposed route encounters no
hills worth mcutiou-ng, passing
through a level or slightly rolling
country. Practically all the terri
tory traversed is free from rock and
there is little or no adobe. Those
familiar with the route declare an
almost perfect road can be mad.

west railroad survey from Bend to
Vnle practically is followed by the
proposed stage route. The only
; exception is thai the stage road
passes to the south of Hampton
Butte, thence running north cast
ward to Burns.
This mail route would serve the
proposed postoOlce of Millican.
Rolyat, Held, nnd nil the homestead
country in the .Millican, River Bed,
Juniper Valley and Hampton Val
ley districts as welt as furnishing
direct communication with Burns
and the southeast. It would great
ly hasten the development of this
large territory, and assi-it this sum
mer's settlers who will take up tkc
last of the remaining 320 acre
homesteads. For it is estimated
that the big rush of land seekrs ac
companying the coming of the rail
road will gobble up the couple of
hundred thousand acres of free land
that still remain before autumn.
TO VIEW OUT ROAD.
Party Will (Jo From Bend to Prospect
Yesterday's development in re
gard to the proposed Bend-Burns
road is that a committee will go
part way over the route the latter
part of this week to view out the
best road and discuss the matter
with settlers in the affected territory
preparatory to getting up a petition
and taking the matter up with the
Burns Commercial Club.
A C. Lucas has donated the use
of his car for this work. Road
Supervisor Richardson will be a
member of the party: other mem
bers may be W. H. Staats, S. C.
Caldwell and one or two of the lo
cutcrs familiar with the territory.
