TIIH SMALLPOX SITUATION.
1 Prlneville'a New Scare Over Affects
Freighting Route to Ucud.
The report from I'siticvilfe iaat
week that the new smallpox patient
whs uinricy JJeuiiMou, recently
from Deschutes, proved to be incor
rect. Deunifton is all right. The
new patient is Charley Hire, who
was stricken with the disease while
staying at the Hotel Pri no villa
The hotel was under strict quarau
tine until Wednesday, when every'
tiling was so satisfactory that tiie
quarantine w raised from both the
l'riueville hotels. Tiie danger
tliere is regarded as past ami busi
ness is resuming its normal con
dition. The new case, which had fatal
result this morning, was thoroughly
Isolated out of tiie city. The first
report were greatly exngger
atetl and served to spread alarm
iu all directions. The truth is stow
ly overtaking the lie and tiie fright
is wearing oft" accordingly. .
l'riueville, 10 miles away, is the
nearest approach to Jtend the small
pox has made this year.
The Lake county authorities Itave
recovered from their scare suffi
deuily to let the mail stage through,
though the Silver Lake txMtinaster
says he will not oen the way seek,
which carries tlte Heud mail for
Iakcvicw, 'until ordered to do so
by the postal authorities. So this
route is still tied up, so far
as the Handling or way mat
ter is concerned. Mail matter from
Rend now gets to J.akeview by way
of Portland ami Ashland. It is the
same mail that' would go by way of
Silver take on the regular route.
but there is uo panic-stricken Silver
take postnuurter to hokl it up on
the Ashland route. Letters to go
to Lakeview now should be marked
Freighters throughout the inter
ior country suffer materia! inconven
ience because of the smallpox scare.
None pf ihe regular feed stations
are own to them, and they are
obliged to cnjnp wketo. they ruajj
ami to curry their own feed supply
with theiiK This, together with
scarcity of horse feed this spring,
has made freighting expensive, in
creasing the cost 50 per cent over
the usual figure. It now costs a
cent and a half a pound, in toil lots,
to get freight to Dend from the rail
road at Shauiko.
People who may desire to reach
Bend without passing through
l'riueville may do so by leaving the
regular stage at Hcisler sta
tion, ou Lower Hay creek, about 27
miles this side of Shauiko. At this
place a road turns oft" to the right
through the I.yle & Drown ranch
and follows the surveyed route o(
the Columbia Southern .extension
through the new town of Palmaiu,
the Agency Plains and the Hay
stack country. At Culver post-
office the traveler 1ms the choice of
two routes. One, the most direct,
leads due south, crossing Crooked
river at Trail Crossing, wh a
straight shoot to Heud. The other
goes around the eastern end of Hay
stack Duties, crossing Crooked
river at the Carmichncl ford, but 011
account of delays caused by high
water, quicksand nud other tilings,
the Trail Crossing is the best and
The distance from Slinuiko to
Dend by way of l'riueville is 95
miltp, while the other way is, easily
ten miles shorter. Tlieroad is just
as good that way,' and the route is
free of smallpox.
The Reception Salqon, Shauiko,
offers the most tempting induce
ments to timber locators going into
the woods. The very best brands
of whiskies, such as Cyrus Noble,
Old Pepper, Hunter Daltimore Rye
and other standard goods, always
to be had here. Call at the Reception.
