CENTRAL POINT HERALD, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER C, lbUti, ,
Ashland, Sefrt. l.-T h e "springs"
which caused the big slide on the South-
are Pacific railroad track at Cantara,
ia the Sacramento River Canyon, 112
Miles south of Ashland, blockading the
track for days and still necessitating a
transfer around the obstructions by
teams overawagon roadfivemiles long,
from Dunsmuir to Mott, are made by
an irrigation ditch, with which a ranch
er named Branatetter distributes moist-
are over an orchard which he owns
above the railroad track at that point.
According to the story that comes
here from the scene, Branstettcr is
standing strictly upon his rights to
Irrigate his orchard even if it blocks
traffic on the main line of the Southern
Ptcific between Portland and San Fran
cisco for all time to come.
Several times already has the South
ern Pacific bad expensive slides at this
point, which it is alleged are due to
Branstetter's irrigation ditch, but the
present one is the most extensive and
expensive one'the company has yet had
to contend with. It is over 300 feet
long and is from ’ 0 to 12 feet in depth
across the track for this distance. Two
big steam shovels and 200 or 300 men
are at work removing the obstruction
but with the best possible progress sev
eral days will be required to clear it.
Meantime trains are running to Mott
from the north and to Dunsmuir from
the south and the wagon transfers
made between these points five miles
It is said the railroad company has
repeatedly offered to purchase Branstet-
ter'a property as a matterof protection
and has offered him as much as $6000
for the place, which it is generally con
ceded is much more than it is worth for
the returns it will yield its owner year
by year. Branatetter it is Raid has a
grudge against the compaty which date?
from construction days when he thought
he got the worst of some sort of a
right-of-way deal through his property.
Although Branstetter has lost con
siderable o f his land already through
these slides, there is enough left yet
It Is said to provide many more ob
structions should other portions of it
take a notion to slough off down his
hillside and upon the railroad track.
