and Supplies Power.
tw Wntinn nt Bend of the
largest woolen mill in the Pacific
Northwest is assured.
A contract for the erection of
a $250,000 mill imediately after
the comDletion of the Uregon
Trunk Railroad to this place,
sfinnlntimr that it shall be in
operation within six months after
4-Viof fiofo nnd that it shall em-
bAlCAW VW vt
ploy 300 workers, has been
signed by Dr. J. F. Bailey, on
hphnlf of his organization, the
Union Woolen Mills Company of
Washougal and Union. In re
turn Bend furnishes four acres
nf suitable land gratis, the city
rphntea taxes to the amount of
$25,000. and 300 horse power is
supplied for a term of years upon
an arrangement, details of which
as yet are not completed.
Manacrer Sawhill of the Com
mercial Club, who arranged the
rnntract with Dr. Bailey in
Portland last week, is working
out the details of the undertak
ing. A number of power pro
positions are under considera
tion as sites for the mill. De
finite data concerning this end of
the enterprise and many of the
details, as yet undecided, will be
QottW nnd announced in the
course of the next few weeks.
This will be a six set mill,
haviner 50 complete looms and
nnnn snindles. the same as that
operated at the Oregon City
plant. However, the Bend es
tablishment will be superior to
the other, inasmuch as all the
machinery employed here will be
entirely modern. Between 300
and 400 workers will be em
ployed. Three separate buildings prob
ably will be erected to house the
plant, all of brick, and the larg
est with dimensions 60x400 feet,
of three stories.
Reckoning on the conserva
tive basis of three dependents to
each worker the coming of the
mill will mean an increase in
Bend's population of at least .1000
persons. All operatives are re
cruited from the ranks of skilled
labor, and will be imported. Ac
cording to Dr. Bailey the pay
roll of the Bend plant will be
about $2000 a week. This figure
is reckoned on a single ten hour
shift. However, it is the com
pany's announced intention to
operate a double shift, thus in
creasing the pay roll figures at
least sixty per cent.
In addition to the woolen mill
a scouring plant will be installed,
of sufficient capacity to scour all
the wool in this section. As
Oregon wool shrinks from 50 to
75 ner cent in scouring, the ad
vantages of scouring here before
shipping to the east, in the re
suiting enormous reduction in
freight cost, will tend to central
ize all Central Oregon wool at
Bend, both for local and export
The mill will have a manufac
turing capacity of 1,200,000
uounds on a single ten hour
Its chief output will be blank
ets. The Washougal mill has
been making these for the Chin'
ese trade for several years, dur
incr all of which a double shift
hn& been employed.

GRAND JURY SAYS
FENCE THE JAIL
Imperative that Outsiders be Kept
The following is the grand jury
report for the May term:
In the Circuit Court of the
State of Oregon for Crook county.
To Hon. W. L. Bradshaw, Judge:
We the grand jury impaneled
for the May, 1911, term of the
above entitled court beg leave to
report as follows:
We have been in session three
days and have listened to and
thoroughly investigated -every
complaint which has been brought
to our attention and given our
most earnest consideration to the
same and during our session
have returned seven true bills
and four not true bills.
We have examined the books
and offices of the clerk, sheriff
and treasurer and as far as we
are able to determine the same
are properly kept, but we do not
pass upon the correctness for the
same because such an examina
tion is impossible with the time
and means at our disposal.
With reference to the county
building we report that it is ab
solutelv imperative that the
county court should immediately
take the necessary steps to pro
vide gratings which would pre
vent any person from having ac
cess to the windows leading to
the county jail and would sug
gest that iron fencing or grat
ings should be placed at a dis
tance of several feet from the
jail windows which would make
it impossible for any person to
approach the windows. While
this body has been in session
articles have been passed through
the outside windows, including
steel saws and whiskey, and
soma steps should be taken at
once to prevent any such recur
We have examined into the
county poor and find that satis
factory arrangements are made
Having finished our labors, we
respectfully ask to be discharged.
