to go right on as soon as possible.

Hill and Harriman interests
will enter central Oregon over
one line of rails through the
Deschutes canyon. The strife is
past. John F. Stevens, repre
senting Mr. Hill's interests, and
Judge Lovett, head of the Harri
man lines, met in Chicago re
cently and decided to abandon
contention and construct one lino
through tho rugged gorge, to be
used jointly by tho two roads.
This is the word that comes to
Portland from an authorativo
(source. It is tacked up uy uic
fact that the Harriman construc
tion forces along the Deschutes

It is said that tho line is not to
"be a jointly owned lino in the
full sense of tho word. Part ot

yiman rails, part of the way over
II 1 steel. At tho contested

in tho courts undecided, tho com

men and unless their time is too
limited thoy will bo nsked to re
main in our little city for the big
demonstration meeting for Mon
day evening at tho court house
when Tom Richardson, will be
one of tho attractions.
The coming of tho Hill party
is of vast importance to this sec
tion and wo may expect definite
announcement of tho intention
of that railroad to enter the
Great Harney Country. It is
known that the recent surveys
and rights of way selections
made by Col. Wood, Mr. Hanley
and others through tho Malheur
Canyon was for Mr. Hill and tho
only question was when actual
construction would begin. No
doubt we shall learn tin's upon
tho arrival of the party.
Just how long they will remain
here is not known, therefore it
is hoped that as many represent
ative people as possible may
meet them in Burns on Monday
and give them sucli information
and assistance as possible.

"Ycs, it is my opinion that the
extension of tho Sumpte'r Valley
road will be made to Prairie City
by tho time set in the bonus
agreement," was a remark
dropped by Mr. J. L. Smith
while at the county seat a few
davs aero. Mr. Smith is one of
the contractors on the road nnu
has had charge of much of the
bo-'grading. He says that they are

good in the promises that have
been made. If the work is not
done in the time specified it will
be on account of conditions now
unforseon and over which the
men in charge could possibly
have no control.
Mr. ' Smith says that good
wages arc being paid. There is
no friction and no lost or dead
work and every stroke now
means just that much progress
in the construction.
Work on tho big bridges, there
being two of them, is now about
complete. Rails and ties are on
hand, ready to be laid. In a few
days now tho grade will be finish
ed on the worst of tho route and
tho rest of it will bo completed
more rapidly than when grading
was being done on the mountain.

this place tho two men ran to

reaching Burns, an attempt was

signally on account of tho vast
number of acres which they
"Wo rodo along ono fence for
!J0 miles," said Mr. Covey, short
ly after his return, nnd all the
land, all the way, as far as wo
could see, belonged to Mr. Han
ley. Tho country is Hat and
level, so there are few places
that an automobile cannot bo
made to go.
"Contrary to general belief,
the roads in that part of Oregon
are in very good condition, not
withstanding tho fact that they
are not given particular atten
tion. I found them in good
shape, and, in fact, could hardly
ask for anything better for tour
incr. Thev wore not like our
roads in and out of Portland, but
they will always attract people
because of tho beautiful nature
of tho surrounding country.
There arc many automobiles
owned iii that section, too, for
the farmers realize that a mach
ine is a money makei in the long
run as well as a time saver."

Burns and got acquainted with
tho great possibilities of South

wo should uso our best efforts to
have him got as much out of the
trip as possible. Ho is boosting
for tho entire state and it is for
our good that ho comes to us.
After he has onco seen tho Great
Harney Country ho will bo in
much better position to help de
velop this unsettled section nnd
bring it to tho attention of thous

limited and it will bo impossible
for him to got over the county,
therefore it is hoped that the
people from tho various sections
may find it convenient to bo in

and help make tho big meeting
bcnoficial to all concerned.

In somo portions, highly favor
ed, tho growing season reaches
200 dayB, while in tho least favor
ed frost occurs every month in
the year. This condition is off
set by tho fact that, on account
of the dryness of tho climate,
frost often docs not form until
temperatures as" low as 27 de
grees are reached.
Rainfall ranges from 8 to 25
inches, while some windward
mountain slopes hnvo as much as
GO inches. Most of tho rain falls
in the winter months, but a sec
ondary rainy season occurs in
May and June, at a timo when
tho growing crops most need
moisture. The number of dayB
in tho year having .01 inch of
rain or more, ranges from 44 at
Blalock and Prineville to 108 at
Baker City.
The report finds that tho soil
of practically the entire 60,000
squnro miles of this section is of
basaltic origin and very fertile.
With irrigation and transporta
tion facilities it is capable of
producing sugar beets, alfalfa
and fruit, while without irriga
tion, under dry-farmingmethods,
wheat will continue to bo the
principal crop. The passing of
tho great cattle ranges as condi
tions improve is predicted.
