IJ. W. Richardson and W. W.
Orcutt returned Monday from their
trip to the southeast to view out
feasable routes for the Bend-Hums
road. In their seven day trip the)
went as far as V. W. Brown's Gap
Ranch, 15 miles across the Harney
line, some 100 miles from Bend,
"The expenditure of $500 will
put the road in such shape that a
freight wagon can go from Bend to
Burns," says Mr. Richardson.
"Fifteen hundred dollars and six
weeks' labor will make an almost
perfect auto road. Why, there ir
uo such stretch of road in the state
Think of 100 miles of road that car
be put into the best shape with tin
expenditure of from 5 to $10 a
"A year ago one could drive all
the way to Burns and see not
single house. Today, with the ex
ccptiou of one ten mile stretch, oni
is never out of sight of a settler'
home. And even with this bin set
tlement the country is practical!)
untouched. Indeed, we found oni
volley near Buck Creek, absolutel)
level, ten miles square, and without,
a house or fence on it."
The Bend men say that in the
whole 150 miles from here lo'lium
there is not a single hill as bad a
the little Sismore hill, a mile soutl
of Bend, on the river. They foutu
several good routes eastward Irotr
Millidns, selection of which prob
amy win ucpcuu, in a great meas
ure, upon the desires, und swiataun
offered by the settlers in the affected
territory. At present the moat usci
route cuts through the uorthcuit-ii
corner of Lake County. It is pro
posed to alter this aud have tin
road keep in Crook until it goes iut
Harney, a( about Crook's southeast
comer. Beyond the Harney lint
the road to Burns is in splendic
shape. No work is required on it
W. W. Brown, whose guests tlu
Bend men were, is most enthusias
tic over the proposition. He gave
them every aid, riding with them
for a day.
"Mr. Browu hays he will freight
nil his wool to Bend this spring il
v iiiirr) the road through," say
Mr ki liardou, "Also he, as well
m .ill the other ranchers, and people
of Hum wilt haul all their Height
from the railroad at Bend"
Brown keeps two six-horse freight
outfits 011 the roadall the lime haul
lug for himsclf'cxclusivcly. Brown
alone will ship 100,000 pounds ol
wool, as well as much live stock.
A petition w.ill lie presented to
the County Court asking county
assistance for the project. However,
as this rould not be presented until
the May 1st session, no action can
b; expected from this quarter until
well along in the summer, as view
ers will have to be sent out, reports
There will be a mass meeting at
the Commercial Club rooms Thurs
day evening at 7:30 to discuss the
matter, with a view to subscribing
funds to get work under w?y im
mediately, that the big, waiting
ouslncss may come here at once.
