Sylvester Slants had n narrow es
cape from drowning Sunday after
noon. He was with Ovid Riley
and Rcan West hunting for some
horses and it became necessary for
them to cross the river at Pickett
island. The current there is quite
strong, the water being a little above
the normal stage, and young

seat and fell into the river, hut for

I). 1 Hailey, n prominent citizen
of Wnsco, Sherman county, was in
llcud Tuesday morning en route
for home. He had put in a couple
of weeks hunting and fishing on
the upper river, and took home with
him a large and bushy crop of whis
kers ns the net result of his vaca
tion. County Assessor II. V. John
son spent last Friday and Saturday
in the vicinity of llcud, scheduling
many new tracts of property and
gathering a number of polls. He
was much surprised to sec tie
growth thut had taken place here
in the past year. Hu expressed the
conviction that Bend was the com
ing town of Central Oregon and he
had good reasons for the faith that
was in him.

of the Pilot Butte Development Co.
to the new site on the ditch line
was begun Wednesday. The saw
mill and planing mill will continue
work here u few days longer, to
work up the logs on hand, but they
will be moved to the new location
some time the coming week. A
considerable supply of lumber is
left for building needs here.
A sad procession passed through
Bend Wednesday evening. The
wife of Amos Bradshuw, who had
been suffering from liver complaint,
had died on Tuesday after n linger
ing illness at the place where they
have been camping on their timber
claims, and accompanied Uy his two
daughters, Maud and Jessie, Mr.
Bradshuw was on his wuy to Prine
ville to inter the remains.

ployed on the new store building of
the Bend Mercantile Company, fell
from tlio roof late this afternoon, a
distance of 35. feet, lauding on his
right suouulcr and sintering Injury
from which he will be laid un sev

Ieared to be serious. Dr. Kdwards
was summoned and found that no
bones were broken and uo severe
internal inittrv received, though the
shock was considerable.
Frank Hodson, who was driving
near the Swalley bridge Monday af
ternoon when the storm came upon
him, says he had to get the horses
under a big juniper to keep
from running away. Hailstones
the size of hen eggs fell occasion'
ally, cutting off the smaller limbs
of trees like a knife, and making
deep indentions in the ground in
oin spots. Frank says he felt just
like the man who had to dodge the
lightning until he found n protect-
DEATH IN THE FLOOD

About 200 persons lost their live
and 100 dwellings were destroyed
by 11 cloudburst at I luppnor Sunday
afternoon little after 5 o'clock.
The property low is placed at $500,

The previous Thursday there had
been a cloudburst which covered
the depot platform with water about
a foot and a half deep, and thunder
storms had clung about the neigh
boring mountains, rumbling omin
ously from time to time. Sunday
afternoon the torrent descended. A
body of water said to have been 30
feet tall and 200 feet wide swept
down the Willow creek valley.
Willow creek is formed by Hin
ton creek from the southeast and
Balm creek from the southwest.
Hcpptier is near the junction of
these streams. Most of its houses
are along the bank of Willow, where
the torrent tore and wrought com
Heppucr was overwhelmed with
in three or four minutes after the
first sign of danger appeared. The
vast volume of water poured upon
the hills and washed down upon
the fated town. In and about the
town it acquired such a load of
buildings, trees and miscellaneous
debris that its progress was some
what checked and the water rolled
slower and slower down the valley,
though always with destructive
force. Men on horseback were
able to get ahead of the flood and
cany warning to residents along
the banks in time for them to es
cape and save much stock. Leslie
Matlock was the most conspicuous
of these quick-acting heroes. He
killed one horse and ruined another
but he saved many lives.
The O. R. & N. track was so
disturbed that no regular trains ran
on any of the 45 miles of the Hcp
pner branch until Wednesday, when
train service was restored to Lex
ington, nine miles from Hcppncr.
At one point near lone a long sec

Assessor Johnson Did Not Say So,
Prineville. Or., June 17 (Editor
of Bend Bulletin) I have been m
formed that the statement was made
in the Bend school meeting that the
county assessor gave information
us to the legality of votes in
school meetings, and said that par
ties being assessed for the year 1903
were legal voters in the annual
school meeting for 1903. I wish to
say that I am not a legal adviser;
furthetmorc, if I were 1 would ad
vise the way the law reads, which
is very plain to me, that it refers to
the last year's assessment.
B. I' Johnson,
Charles Brock made the state
ment in Monday's school meeting
that Assessor Johusou told him the
assessment of 1903 would qualify
him for voting nt the school meet
