'CITY OV KLECTIUC KN'HKGY."
Much has bee a written about the
Deschutes river, and the future will
see a great deal more written, for
this stream that flows quietly by
Uend is destined to play a stellar
role, to uo a theatrical 'figure, on
the stage of Uend and Central Ore
gon history. It Is an important
stream, and therefore the more we
all know 'about it the better we will
be acquainted with this part of tho
stato where we live.
Having Its source In a number of
lakes at tho summit of the Cascade
mountains, it flows northward to the
Columbia river, with which It joins
about IS miles esst of The Dalles.
Its chief tributaries are the West
Fork of the Deschutes, Crooked, Me
tollus, Warmsprlng and White rivers,
and the drainage area of this system
totals some 17.000 square miles. All
cicept tho Crooked river drain the
eastern slopo of the Cascades, which
contributes the larger part of the
stream flow, incidentally giving the
river one of its remarkable features.
This is tho uniformity of flow, which
has been stated by government ex
perts to be perhaps the most re
markable uniform flow of any river
in the world comparable with it In
size, and on this account its economic
value is very great.
Under present market conditions
for waterpower, the value of a
stream is In direct proportion to the
volume of water it carries at Its
lowest stage. At tho mouth of tho
Deschutes tho maximum flow Is six
times, and at Bend only three times,
tho minimum. Evidence of this
uniformity is seen in tho low grass
grown banks between which tho river
flows In Its upper course.
Although tho winter temperaturo
gets low sometimes, Ice conditions
do not affect tho stream flow to any
oxtont. Tills Is due to the fact that
tbo waters roach the river in the
form of springs. Tho high stages
usually occur in July, resulting from
molting snow, but such a thing as a
flood in tho rlvor has neror been
Investigations made by membora
of tho Geological Survey of tho
United States show that tho total
avaltahlo power In tho Deschutes
river and Its principal tributaries, at
tho average low-water stage, Is 1.
115,000 horscpowor. This Is on the
asssumptlon that 90 per cent of tho
fall can be utlllied nnd 80 per cont
of theoretical watcrpowor readied
on water wheels. Tho two railroad
lines which have been built In tho
canyon of tho lower river reduce
this power somowhat, but both roads
havo elevated tholr tracks so as to
permit tho construction of thrco
dams one at tho mouth of tho river
known ao Moody's dam. one at the
government dam site 19 H miles
above tho mouth and ono at Shorar's
bridge, 40 miles abovo the mouth.
Irrigation developments In tho upper
courso of tho stream will also reduce
the water that can be usod for power
purposes, but It has boon estimated
that, attor all these requirements are
satisfied, tho total possibilities of
power development In the main Des
chutes river will reach the enormous
total of C50.000 horsepower. After
proposed storago rcsorrolrs aro com
pleted, the avallablo supply for
power development will be Increasod
about 100,000 horscpowor, giving tho
river a capability of developing
4 650,000 horsepower. "This," says
J. C. Stevens, district engineer of the
Geological Survoy, "Is nearly four
times tho total amount of water
power developed at the present time
In the states of Oregon, Washington
and Idaho, combined."
Dend'a situation on the river Is
strategic and such that this should,
and surely will, become a manufact
uring center. Built on the banks of
tho stream, the river is right at hand
to turn tho wheels of vast Industries.
It is today tbo only town In Contra!

nnd on the Deschutes river. Electric
