Keen Two Huv ryp Ilclug Made
for Itallroat Across Caocadr.
PORTLAND, Sept. 11 Extensive
engineering parties representing
both the llarrlman and tho Hill rail
road' Interests, are engaged In sur
veying n line up tho McKenzle river
eastwsrd from Kugonc, with the
evident Intention of establishing a
, route across the Cascade mountains
connecting with the Central Oregon
I railroads at llend.
Such la tho authentic news re
ceived hire, my Informant being U.
fO. Kddy, an Eastern gentleman who
has Just returned from a fishing trip
along tho McKenzle. There are
several parties of surveyors, num
bering In all probably about 76 men.
Tho present most easterly camp, ap
parently, Is situated at Vlda, a small
place some 30 miles east of Eugene.
Other camps aro established near
Walteravlllc, 10 miles further west.
Two surveys are being worked out,
each following the Immediate valley
of the McKenilo river.
Rivalry I Kern.
The parties havo been on tho
ground but a few weeks, and from
the thoroughncsa of their equipment
and the apparent semi-permanency
of the camps, there seems excellent
reason to bellovo that a protracted
work lies tefore them. According
to natUes who havo watched the
work since Ita inception, a very keen
rivalry exists between tho represen
tatives of tho two railroad systems,
and a decided effort is being made
by each to outdistance tho other in
the ruce for vantage grounds In tho
ascent of the mountain alopes and
tho gaining of the beat trans-Cascade
pass. That little or no news of the
mysterious and bidden work of these
surveyors baa leaked out la due to
the remoteness of their Held of
activity and the fact that aside from
a chance fisherman very few people
who are Interested, or might report
tho work, are on the ground.
Eastern Objecllie Point llend.
Those fsmlllah with the territory
and the topographical conformation
of tho mountains assert that there
can be no other eastern objective
point than llend. In addition to the
field which may bo entered east of
flu tnntinf ntnii nti .vtrmAl v rlfh
! timber country la traversed by tho
now surveys. It is through this
territory that L. W. Hill passed
when he made his recent hasty and
secret auto trip from Redmond to
Eugene. Whatever the final out
come, there seems no reason to
doubt that at least ono road, and
porsihly two, will establish, a working
survey across the mountains. This
