iest aeotlooa of tbe state. Tbe peo
ple there are progressive, and every
one seems to have money. Tbe banks
have so 'maon money that they do
not know what to do with It, which
Is a fair Indication of the stsblllty
of that county. I never meet a finer
lot of people than the resldente of
that eoonty."

lay ia tbe arrival of tbe mails re

Concrete Work Is Nearly
Completed, and Floods"
Can't Damage It
C. C. Mahan waa in from tbeDrews
Creek dam Tuesday and reports
tbe O. V. L. work progresaiat very
satisfactorily, ilea informed repres
entative o! the Examiner that the
concrete work on tbe dam would
doubtless be completed la about two
weeks, wbile tbe construction of tbe
dam bsd reaohed a etage wbeie no
trouble would result from bigb water.
Contractor Berney has a fnll crew
employed, and there will be no ne
cessation of tbe work during tbe win
ter ssascn.
The big flume has been completed
for about a mile, and the mud blocks
for tbe foundation are now being
placed for tbe remainiog distance in
order that work may be continued
during the winter.
Contractor Hanson will complete
bis team work on tbe main canal next
week, when he will lay tbem off for
tbe winter. It it praotioally certain
that water will be furnished next
season for lands under the main 'can
al, tbe only uncertainty being the
supply of lumber for tbe flumes. In
building tbe flumea it Is found that
there Is a much greater per cent of
culls than was expeoted, aad there
fore a lack of lumber may delay tbe
completion of the work to a date
later than Is now anticipated. Efforts
are now being made to aeoure an
addtltional amount of timber from
the Forest service, and if tbe de
mand can be met without moving
the saw mill to a new location, ..there
will be no delay lu turningtbe
water on tbe aod next spring. J.;

N. C. O. Finds Easy Qrade
to Lakeview
Chief Engineer Oliver States that
Road Will Be Extended as
Rapidly as Possible
Geo. S. Oliver, chief engineer of
the N. C O. railway, accompanied
by his brother, J. W. Oliver, arrived
in Lakeview Monday eveniag. The
latter U chief locallog engineer for
.the N. C. O. and now bas bis camp
established at what is termed aa the
Point ranch oa tbe west aide of the
lake just south of tbe 8tate lioe. He
is making a survey for hie road from
tbe proposed terminus at tbe south
end of the lake up along tbe west
side to Lsksvlew. A few years smoe
a similar aurvey was run aloog the east
side of the lake, and tbe survey new
being mace ie to ascertain tha nam.
parative eost of the proposed line. ;
jar. uuver'e party la using a
boat, tbs "N. C. O. No. 1." is tba
work, owing to tbe fact that there
is no wagon road along the lower side
of tbe lake. Thus far a verv excellent
grade of comparatively cheap con
struction has been foaod. For tbe re
mainder of the distance the grading
will be nearly all ieam worn.
Chief Engineer Oliver daring his
stay in Lakeview waa non-committal
as to the vroapeatlve work 'of bis
company but tne fact tbat he made
numerous inquiries concerning ter
minal facilities and also looked ovae
j tbe grounds left tba Impression that
tbe N. C. O. would be extended Into
Lakeview in the very near future,
be expects to return to Lakevissr
in a week or ten days, oresums bly for
the purpose of obtaining a r'gbt of
way into town. Mr. Oliver express
ed the opinion that tbe extension ef
bla road to the lake would aot be
open for traffic until about May 1-
next, although It might be opened
sooner as tbe work Is being Dashed
as rapidly as possible.
Contractor Kiohardsoa. who is ta
at work oa tbe extensioa, is ex per-
fencing some difficulty ia getting
aborers, owing to th9 lu iej 3t the
season and the near approach sf
winter. However, he u making aat-
Isfaotory progress aad will doubtless
oompiete the work on time.
