The roadbed of the Oregon
Eastern thru the Malheur canyon
is practically completed as far as
Mile post 38, or rather up to the
east portal of the 2500i-foot tun
nel. This was the statement
made a few days ano to an En
terprise reporter by G. II. Chaf
fin of the Wasatch construction
Since the first of the year the
Wasatch company has completed
about five miles of roadbed rnd
inp and next week will complete
an enormous cutat the bejjiningof
Mile post 38 on which a crew of
men has been working since the
operations were, started in the
Malheur canyon shortly after the
first of the year.
The Wasatch people expect to
have their contract completed in
two weeks, when two b:R cuts
containing 7000 yards of dirt and
lose rock will have been finished.
This done tracklaying can be
rushed as far as the big tunnel.
Mr. Chuflin reports that con
crete piers are being put in for
the two steel bridges which are
to be built between Mile post 3G
and 37. These spans are 200 and
300 feet long. Vale Enterprise.

This was the first authentic
report over the wire Tucsdny
night, outside of that nodefinate
details arc obtainable for this
issue concerning the general elec
tion thruout the whole country.
The only election news at the
time this is written is somewhat
meatfer and Konernl. ,a s U8U.
ally the case more is known of
the result of the National elec
tion than of Harney County.
People who 'phone in the results
from vnrious precincts ive only
partial" returns and in some in
stances some half dozen candi
dates or less. Nothing definite
as to the vote on state and dis
trict ollicers can he secured.
The democrats have made a
decide! and .sweeping victory
thruout the United States. Wilson
ami Mnrshnl! carrying almost
everything with the exception
of six states. There were a few
states in doubt at the time this
is written, hut enough is known
to show that Wilson has won tho
greatest victory of any candidate
for president in many years.
Taft is credited with but two
states, both small. Congress i
win do democratic iy a gooi ma
jority, thus giving that party an
excellent opportunity to carry
out its policies without hindrance.
In the stale election it is quite
likely Dr. Lane has been selected
as United States Senator, but
aside from this office tho demo
crats have not, elected another
candidate. Brooko is elected dis
trict attorney, Stewart has de
feated Mahon -for state Senator
and Homan has been elected re
presentative. Returns show that
tho court house question figured
in tho vote of every candidate
for county office benefiting some
and iniuring others.
The bad storm of election day
also had its effecta upon some of
tho candidates as in some pre
cincts the vote was very light.
According to a telegram re
ceived here suffrage has likely
been defeated and perhaps every
road bill has been killed. There
were entirely too many bills on
tho ticket to receivo just consid
eration from tho voters and there
should bo some means of curbing
Mr. U'Ron and his type imposing
upon the privilege given for such
bills to bo yoted upon. Peoplo
generally know enough to vole
such intelligently provided they
haven't a whole newspaper to
look over in tho voting booth and
tho titles mado plain. Tliero
were confusing titles on tho bal
lot at this election and many
hardly know whether they were
voting for what they thought
thoy were or not.
It tho county election tho dem
ocrats secured but ono man aside
from Mr. Richardson who was
running independent, Chas.
Beery, for surveyor is tho only
domocrat elected. 13. B. Waters
is ro-elected clerk; J. J. Uonogan,
assessor; L. M. Hamilton, school
superintendent; R. A. Miller has
defeated Simon Lewis for treas
urer and Thos. Bain is elected
For n time it was very close be
tween Doncgan and Callow for
assessor and it was necessary to
get the vote of tho south-end pre
cincts to determine who had it,

J. W. Thompson, who is farm-'
ing on one of tho Stephens ranch
es west of town and who ownes
two O. V. L. tracks nd joining i
thai properly on the south, wns
in town Tuesday with a load of
grain. Mr. Thompson stated
that the jack-rabbits had caused
him considerable trouble this
season mid reports that the pests
have become quite numerous in
his section. He came here from
Nevada and says the rabbit is
not new to him. He states that
a very eltectivc war is ueing
waged against the varmints in
that state by trapp'ng them in
,the wilder, and says that he will
test it here. A number of move
able pens about 20 by 40 feet are
built and set about in the brush,
with alfalfa hay or some other
enticing feed placed in the pens.
Entrance to the pens is so con
structed tha't the rabbits can go
in thru V. shaped wire fingers,
the spring of which automatical
ly closes them to prevent egress.
Mr. Thompson says numerous
rabbits will enter each of the
pens during a night, and thus
entrap themselves. Tho princi
pal of his scheme seems entirely
plausible and no doubt if il was
practiced by several ranchers in
tho rabbit sections it would af
ford eirectivc means toward ex
termination of tho pests. Lake

Oftentimes we hear a story of
a country of , possibilities that
sounds like a well-selected page
from Aladdin and his wonderful
lamp, and once in a while, a very
great while; we find this wond
erful story of promise based on
statistics, the true character of
its citizenship and actual crop
production - such in short is the
territory lying between Bend and
Lakeview the country of things
to be says the Journal.
In the triangle with Bend to
the north, Burns to the east,
Klamath Kails on the west and
Lakeview on the south, lies ap
proximately 10,000.000 acres of
virgin territory. About one
tenth of this acreage will be sus
ceptable to intensive cultivation
when the various irrigation pro
jects already planned have re
claimed tho land. While thous
ands of acres have been filed up
on during the past two years, no
great showing has been made by
the homesteader because of lack
of transportation facilities to
carry the products of his ranch
to a commercial market.
Grain production with a three
cent rate tacked on to the end of
it may exist in theory but a prac
tical demonstration of it on a
large scale will soon lead to bank
ruptcy. The homesteader is
therefore required to confine his
energies to products and quanti
ties necessary for home consumption.
The successful settlement of
this vast acreage is greatly de
pendent upon three things: trans
portation, immigration and per
spiration. In tho proportion of
each to the other is tho fact that
all working along a line of least)
resistance, is necessary before
any new country can be so far '
settled that it assumes a place in '
the commercial world. Singly a
certain per cent of benefit may ,
accrue, but working tof,oihcr
these three links will peoplo this
vast acreage in addition to re
claiming to Portland a territory
that is rich in resources but short
on .population. The reclamation
of this central Oregon acieage,
which may bo called Portland's
back yard, will open up what is
destined to bo ono of tho great
est wheat producing belts in the
entire Pacific northwest.
First in order and importance
comes transportation, important
because the two remaining links
are dependant upon this feature.
