must and will become the 'factory district' ' of Bond.
Already it is tho most practicable and desirablo, owing to
its advantages which are necessary to factories of any kind.
Sonic of these advantages lie in the fact that Riverside
is cut in two by the Railroad, making a great number of lots,
running alongthe Railroad right of way; while any of the
others can be reached easily and cheaply by short spin's from
the main line, thus enabling one to loml or unlo.ul directly
from his own platform into the car. Then n great number of
lots lie right on the bank of the Deschutes River, which ad
vantage is too obvious to recount; but the greatest advan
tage of all lies in the fact that to any of these "tots wc can
deliver the cheapest power in Rend, for they average but
three ordinary city blocks, or 1800 feet from Rcnd's largest
power plant now building, the dam alone to cost $150,000,
which will be ready to deliver power this winter; anil the
farthest lot from power is only three city blocks, 1800 feet
from the Union Depot.

The following la an article. In ab
breviated form, by O. P. Putnam,
which appeared In The Portland Ore
eonlan of latt Sunday:
Just about a year ago the cork that
had bottled up a third of uregon was
pulled. On October S, 1911, the two
railroads, representing the Hill and
liarrlman systems, were completed
up the Deschutes river and the regu
lation golden spike waa driven by
Jamea J. H1J1.
This year baa seen wonderful
changes in Central Oregon. In con
slderlng them, Just remember that
two years ago the nearest railroad to
Dend, the present terminus, was Just
100 miles distant at Sbanlko. He
member that Crook county, with an
area larger than New Jersey, had a
population of probably less than
9000. Hemember that a very few
years ago 90 per cent of the farming
was done from a horse's back, that
everything that was exported went
out of the country on Its own legs.
Journey Is Delight.
Today you can como up that can
yon on a well appoluted train, over
well ballasted roadbeds. Instead of
being a misfortune, the Journey is a
delight. The trip embraces the most
magnificent scenery to be found along
any railroad In the Northwest.
It Is Interesting to note that a month
or so ago the most unique rallrad ex
cursion ever pulled off in the West
passed up this same canyon, when a
big special train, with four Pullman
electrically-lighted cars, a dining car
and a baggage car, came all the way
from Seattle to Dend, with a capacity
load of enthusiasts from the Bound
city and from Portland, whose only
reason for making the trip was (o see
Teaching Kvldcnt Need.
In the first place, ugain remember
tuat a few years ago there were prac
tically no real farms In Central Ore
Son. It aa a land of ranched and
cattle ranee. Then along catne the
railroad: new settlers came In. Some
made failures, as was to be expeeted.
Then men like Professor Scuddor of
the Oregon Agricultural College and
Carl It. Gray, until recently president
of tho Hill Oregon lines, and C. 8.
Hudson of Head, and a host of others,
with an eye t the future, decided
that the farmers of Central Oregon
needed teaching. So they proceeded
to procure that teaching. It cost
money, but the two railroads "came
through" generously, and once the
cash was on band, the Oregon Agri
cultural College provided the experts
to guide operations. And this year,
thanks to the far-sighted county
courts and the able work of the Cen
tral Oregon Development League,
with J. H. Sawhlll as working repre
sentative, and "UIU" Hantey na head,
all backed by the Oregon Develop
ment League and the Portland Com
mercial Club, four Central Oregon
counties have donated $1000 each to
ward the support of agricultural dem
onstration farms; In short, to a spe

lletween the railroad and the riv

encounters what undoubtedly are the
most striking examples of xst-rall-
road development. In July or this
year n carefully made census gave
the town a population of 1700 people;.
a year ago, before the railroads camo,
it is doubtful If there were many
more than half that number. Since
the railroads arrived more than $100
000 has been spent on brick and on
stone buildings, making what Is be
lieved to be the most remarkable
building development of any town of
similar alzo lit the Northwest. The
brick Is locally made, and all tho
stone used Is quarried within a mile

A notable example of how devel
opment Is cantering along In tho In
terior Is furnished by the fact that
beginning next month work will be
undertaken upon Ilend's $75,000
sewer system. Tho Initial work em
braces but one unit, for the business
district, of a I2C0.000 system. The
contract calls for the completion of
this by the middle of next summer.
