FOR LIQUOR MEN GRAND JURY HAS NOT COMPLETED INVESTIGATION Polly-Haddon Case Will Go to Jury Tills Evening Juror Is Dl Sher iff Taylor Takes Three to Penlten tlory Three Others Have Been Sentenced Two Awaiting Sentences'. SUMPTER VALLEY LI WILL BE EXTENDED Sumpter. Ore.. April 17. It was an nounced here today that; the Sumpter Valley Railway company will extend its line this season into the John Day river section. The report also states that Prairie City, Canyon City and ultimately the great Harney valley will be reached. Thirty thousand dol lars ulready has been subscribed by John Day residents for extension into heir territory. More than one route has been sur veyed for extension of the Sumpter Valley Into the country mentioned, but so far the company has made no definite statement as to which will be pursued. There is much fine timber along either route, which will find an outlet over this road, as well as stock and farm products. Should the road go by Prairie city and Canyon City It would necessarily leave the Susan- ille mining section to one side, but still easy of access, as well as the Quartzburg district. Should the latter be tapped it is hardly probable that the two first mentioned towns will be Included on the line. The purchase of the Dixie Meadows mining property by W. X. Murphy and Andrew J. Devlin of Spokane has led to the belief that they know the route f the railway and are making their rrangenients accordingly. This prop rty is In the Quartzburg district, not far from the Thomas ranch, which Is on the line of the proposed railway extension. From Ira Lemmons, one of he original locators of the Dixie, is arned the full history of the mine nd its great possibilities.

The case of Polly versus Haddon, which has been on trial since Satur day morning, will probably go to the Jury this afternoon.
