The county court of this county has troubles of its own and
dissension seems to be the order of nearly every m eeting lately.
By the tim e the workmen get through im proving 6th street
Redmond will have one of the best public thoroughfares in C entral
Oregon.
But it will take lots of work to do it.
Crook county and C entral Oregon got about all they desired
in the way of recognition of th eir irrigation projects at the ses­
sion of the Oregon Irrigation Congress in Portland last week.
A city park for Redmond is one of the new features the Com ­
mercial Club is working on. This would be a boon to the citizens
and others coming to town, and it is hoped the proposition can be
worked out and the park completed for the coming sum m er.
The Monday noon luncheons of the Redmond Commercial
Club are becoming very popular, and the attendance at them is
increasing.
The “feed” put up at the different places for the
club is of the best, and no one has cause fo r kicking because of
not gettin g enough to eat.
Railroad companies do not seem to find money tight.
The
Canadian Pacific Railway is going to expend 100 million dollars
in 1914 for betterm ent of its road and extensions, and several
roads in the I'n ited S tates are going to expend money way up in
the millions for im provem ents.
Two and one-fourth cents is w hat the Portland Railway, Light
& Power Co. charges M ultnomah county per kilow att hour for
electricity fo r light and power.
This is a p retty low rate, and
will be the m eans of saving the county a large sum over the
prices they have paid in form er years.
Some people are wondering why th eir taxes are so high this
year.
The Spokesman has no solution of the problem.
T axa­
tion is a peculiar institution the way it is conducted and m anaged
a t present.
The person w ith small property holdings alw ays is
the one who pays more in proportion than the large property
owner.
If all paid th e ir ju st proportion of taxes then taxation
would not be a burden.
But they don’t, and th ere you are.

The Spokesman is inform ed th a t the Oregon Trunk Railway,
following th eir policy of last year, will again th is season endeavor
to buy as much farm produce for th e ir hotels, dining cars and
construction camps from the farm ers in th is section as possible.
This is a tip to the produce grow ers of this section, and especially
th e m arket gardeners, for the railw ay is a large buyer of good
garden truck, and the farm ers who will make a specialty of this
kind of farm produce th is year can pull down a neat sum of coin.
The news dispatches tell of a postm aster in a southern state
who “ sold" his office to a man who yearned to pound stam ps for
Uncle Sam.
The postal au th o rities, hearing of the transaction,
got a fte r the man who sold out and intend to make it warm for
him.
The practice of buying out postm asters by aspiring would
be postm asters is frow ned upon by the governm ent and w herever
they get trace of a case of th is kind they meet out strin g en t pun­
ishm ent to the offender.
It is understood th a t the D eschutes Light & Power Co. intend
to rew ire the city with heavier wire and put in more transform ers
as soon as th e w eather will perm it, in order to take care of th eir
increasing business here.
This company has a large am ount of
capital invested in th eir electric plant and aim to give th eir p at­
rons the best service possible.
T heir business in Rdmond has
gone beyond th e ir expectations, and they now intend to put in a
system to take care of fu tu re dem ands for y ears to come.
The P ortland Ad Club recently institu ted an action a t law
against the Elby Piano Co. there fo r false and deceptive a d v e r­
tising.
The claim was m ade by the Ad Club th a t the piano com ­
pany advertised th a t they had a piano for sale which had been
used only one m onth and when new cost $550.
The ad vertise­
m ent is said to be false, it being alleged th a t the piano had been
used seven years and cost $400 when new.
There is a strin g en t
s ta te law against false and deceptive advertising e ith e r in a news­
paper, by circulars, handbills, post cards, etc.
The Portland Ad
Club is a fte r the people who advertise fake closing out sales, “ the
biggest sale of the y ear,” and such deceptive advertisem ents. The
law is a good one, as it protects the innocent purchaser from the
m erchant who, through m isleading advertising, tries to bunko
them .
The law should be enforced in every city and town in the
sta te .
Redmond ha« some extrem ely good dram atic talent, and the
plays th a t have been put on here have alw ays m et with the ap­
proval and appreciation of audiences.
The last play presented
here by home talen t was some tim e ago, entitled “Valley F a rm .”
T his play was greeted by a packed house and the efforts of the
players was much appreciated.
Those taking p a rt in the pro­
duction were Miss M yrtle Butler, Mrs. C. A. Cline, Mrs. J. F.
Ilosch and her sister, Mrs. G. M. Slocum, Miss L aura Jones, J. P.
D oherty as “ F a rm e r Si," J. R. Roberts, “R usty” Ridenour, C. H.
Irvin, and several o th ers whose names we cannot ju s t now recall.
R ehearsals are now in progress by local talent fo r an o th er play,
“T he C orner S to re,” th a t will he presented soon here, and ju s t
here it is opportune to say th a t the cast is made up of the best
talen t in th e city and those who a tte n d his play will surely get
th e ir m oney’s w orth.
T he players won’t be a lot of "h am s" tr y ­
ing to pose as acto rs and actorines, as some of the local dram atic
" ta le n t” troupes are comprised of.
W hen it comes to g e ttin g up
a good show Redmond is th e re w ith bells on .
