The editor o f the Prineville
Journal was in Redmond last
week, and after looking the city
up one side and down the other,
went home and printed the fol­
lowing about the "H ub City:”
"Redmond, the Hub city, is a
town with a well in it. The pop­
ulation line up at the well regu­
larly three times a day and come
in goodly numbers between times
for their apportionment.
"N ot unlike the times o f old,
most o f the modem Rebekahs
and their brothers also, bring
water sacks or water Ex>ttles.
Not the pig skin variety, to be
sure, but the more modem can­
vas bag that keeps water cool on
a hot day and is convenient to
earn-. Almost every Redmond
home has one or more o f these
hanging where they are fanned
by the breezes, while the supply
for cooking, etc., is taken from
the canals which are in evidence
on every street o f this pretty lit­
tle town.
"Redmond has a well and a
good one. and it is proud o f the
fa ct It is the only water that
can I k * had. excepting the ditch
water, between O’ Neil and the
Deschutes, and between Trail
Crossing and Bend. Indeed, the
last three places mentioned can
give the traveler nothing letter
than Deschutes river water
which could E>e purer at this sea­
Thus the Redmond people
think they have something good,
and they have.
Later the town
will be piped and the water
which is now being pumped by a
big pumping plant into a tower
tank, will be installed in the
dwellings and business places,
but the present arrangement
could be and has been w-orse,
and the people are pleased, for
the water from the well is good.
It comes from a depth o f 450 feet
and is cold and pure.
"Redmond is easily three times
what it was eighteen months ago
in the matter o f population,
business, and business houses,
and the immediate future holds
even greater things in store, or
at least such is now evident
"You can buy a sack o f sugar
or a keg o f nails in Redmond as
cheap as they can be had in any
other interior town, and the
quality and service is good. The
business men are all busy tying
up bundles o f goods.
“ The Redmond booster will
tell you that the town will grow
rapidly and that several brick
buildings will be built within the
year. In fact Ehret Bros, con­
tracted a two-story store build­
ing 50x75 feet Saturday to Ben

A number o f wooden
business buildings are being con­
structed and cottages, too. In
fact many o f the present popu­
lation are living in tents.
