There has been much said con
cerning the -future of the Bend

thai there is too much frost to

ment and different members of
the dituh company are putting
large tracts under, cultivation is
vtry strong evidence of their
faith in the productiveness of
their lands, and they certainly
have niade a pretty thorough
investigation before investing
their money in the enierprise.

A gentleman from' Nprth Dakota who
was in here on last Frklay on his way to
Bend, informed us that he had just had
word from Ins home in North Dakota
that his aoo acre Meld of wheat had. been
totally destroyed by a hail storm. The
hall fell over a district about three miles
wide by thirty miles long, arid the grain
which was just.rcady to harvest was com
pletly ruined, caus'ng a loss Of nearly a
million dollars. Our informant, who has
been at I'ortlartd seeinK the Lewis and
Clark Fair, was in the sawmill business in
North Dakota for r number ol years.
He has, however, decided to change his
location, and while in Oregon was look
in? over tht Central Oregon field, about.
which he has read a great deal. He did.
not say what business he intended enter

Jndge Rjbert S. Bean of Ihe
Supreme Court of the state of
Oregon -ho been, appointed by
President R 'osevelt to iill the
vacant federal judgeship caused
by the death of Judge Charles
13. Bellinger. Judge Bean was
recommended for the office by
Attorney General Moody, and
his appointment followed.
There were a number of can
didates for the position of
United States pistiict Judge for
Oregon,' -to' which Judge Bean
has . been appointedt and .the
President has not been in any
great haste to make the ap
pointment. Some time ago W.
V. Cotton of Portland was
named for the vacant federal
judgeship, and after some de
liberation accepted the position.
IJafer and before he qualified,
he Notified the' President that
he would not accept the posi
tion. Judge "Bean, who : hue
juat been appointed to the posi
tion, is said to be well-equipped
for the federal bench, being a
man of deep legal learning and
of judicial terperament, and it
was because the President con
sidered him the best man for
the'place that his appointment
was made. Politics has not fig
ured very largely in the selec
tion of the Oregon j udge.

Chinese ports, and now since

We have it upon good authority that
Sanford & Sill, of Shaniko, expect to es
tablish a branch store at this place in the
near future,, and later on to remove their
entire business from Shaniko. They will
either buy a building here or build one
for themselves at once, and ,will carry a
full line of general merchandise and farm
ing implements. Snnford & Sill carry a
large stock of goods at Shaniko, and their
removal Yo this" place would be a consider
able addition to the business of the town,
Andy D. Anderson of Fox Valley, Ja
cob DeShazer 6t Sandy, and John Van

day and filed uppnhomesteads in sections
17 and 18, in 11-13. This land lies just
