"As long as friendship is held

thrive," observes the Silver Lake
Bulletin; mid it is a truth that none

That Central Oregon is an un
reasonably healthy country is at
tested by the fact that there is not
business enough to support a doc
tor or a drugstore in all the vast
expanse between Priueville and
Clackamas county steps up anil
doubles the total of its taxable
property this year, and yet it issHfe
to say no man in the county would
sell for the assessor's figures. The
whole state will show an increase
of about $25,000,000, one-fifth of
which belongs to Cluckamas.
"A good deal of noise has been
made over appointments for the
I.akcview laud office but the old
officials are still doing business at
the old stand. It seems to be easier
to find fault with present methods
than to obtain a cure, which is a
truth of very general application.
The meloncholy days have come,
but they arc by no means the sad
dest of. the year in the metropolis of
the Upper Deschutes. They are
altogether mellow and delightful,
with enough cri.ipness in the morn
ing and evening atmosphere toJ
brace any set of nerves. And then
have you noticed our gorgeous
moon the past week? Those sunny
days and moony nights leave noth
ing to be desired in their line.
The high price of fued tends to
bring down the price of stock in the
cattle ccuutry and there is n very
marked movement toward market
this fall. If there should be a hard
winter it is likely that the Hveatodc
losses in Kastern Oregon would be
large. The loss of 7000 tons of
hay on the Chewaucnu marsh is
not the least of the influences that
affect livestock prices in Central
Oregon this season.
The great law of supply and de
mand will govern the timber laud
and lumber business. The market
value of laud today is what can be
obtained for it today. Unquestion
ably the value of timber laud will
rise, probably quite rapidly. Its
intrinsic value is constantly increas
ing and the question of title is be
coming lass and less as time Nuaes
to those who have had their
proof accepted. Others are in no
condition to sell. Those who can
hold their laud will profit from it.
Those who cannot afford to hold
their claims for an advance must
suffer the loss that comes from such
conditions. This is one of the dis
advantages of poverty. Much as
it is to 'be hoped that claim holders
will get good prices for their prop
erty, the hard fact cannot be dis
guised that if they sell at all they
must sell for the price prevailing at
the time of sale. No pool or com
bination cau break the force of this

One who nsccwds the Deschutes
vnllev only to the vicinity ot Hcud,
' mioses the most charming; part of it.
I Hcgiuniug u doncti miles above
jHend is a. series of natural meadows,
level and green and bordered with
evet green forest. The river winds
its labyriuthian way through tlcvs
fields and at this season of the year
gives no hint of Hooding them.
Cattle gruxe on the meadows and
the river swarms with ducks.
Whatever irrigation may do for the
neighborhood of Hcud, the up-river
meadows are now most attractive
to hoiucseekers and it would be
difficult to find n more leautiful
section anywhere. The onlvi cause
for regret is that the acreage is too
small to satisfy nil comers. And
what has not Ixreu taken it locked
up in the withdrawal.
The enterprise of the Columbia
Southern Irrigation Campuuy is in
every way commendable, so far as
can be judged from surface indica
tions. The comjHiuy has shown its
faith in the future and its own good
iaith of the present time by going
ahead with irrigation improvements
before its formal contracts are fully
approved. ' It can afford to take
the risk. Through a numlier of
local people who are interested in
its enterprise it commands a favor
ably local public sentiment and any
thing can be done where everybody
is agreed. It is. perhap., to be re
gretted that there is not a larger
local representation in other re
clamation enterprises of the Des
chutes valley sufficient to make
public sentiment favorable. Great
results come from united, harmoni
ous effort. This country nottds
just such efforts.
It is all right to protect, preserve
and defend the timber supply of
this country. But the strict con
struction that would deprive a hum
ble applicant of his claim on the
ground that he docs not expect
personally to use the timber upon
it, but may sell it at some futute
time, does not exactly save the for
est to the government or the gener
al public. It operate merely to
save the timber from the scrippers,
who, surely, are not more entitled
to it than the average individual
claimant. This is the flaw in the
new tiiubermiid policy if certain
tendencies in the laud office may be
said to have crystalled into u poli
cy. Scrip has been made the in
strument of the most gigantic and
indefensible public laud rape this
country has ever known and the
people have no patience with any
practice that shall give the scrip
pers further advantage, over the
humble citizen churning by right of
his citicu&hip and the laws.

Dr. Charles S.Ildwnrds, who was
in Bend nearly five mouths, has
moved to Priueville and" entered in
to partnership with Dr. II. I'. Bel
knap. About the time Dr. IJd
wardb hud made arrangements for
building a drug store here and
branching out in the drug and
medical business, the opportunity
in Priueville opened up and, uixm
examination, it proved so attractive
that the doctor finally accepted it.

There will lc rhetorical exercises
every Friday afternoon heronfter at

teacher, thinks this', besides lending
something of variety to the school

that could not otherwise be had,
and the children take kindly to the
notion. The public is invited to
visit the school 011 Priday after
noons and thus give encourage
