If you want to vote at the coin
- ing June election or at the presi
dential election iu November, get
out and register now. If you fail
to register by May 15, you cannot
vote except upon being vouched
for by six freeholders and it will
be a very difficult matter, perhaps
wholly impracticable, to get so
"many freeholders together in Bend
.precinct on election day.
There is considerable complaint
'with the stage service out of
Shaniko. The accomodations arc
not sufficcnt to carry the passengers
"who want to come this way and
'the stock is in too poor condition
'to make the trip in good time.
The Deschutes Improvment Com
pay has filed a protest with the
stage company and unless the ser
vice shall be improved will put on
a stage line of its own direct be
tween Shaniko and Bend.
Hon. T. H. McGreer has been
recommended by the Oregon con

His appointment will doubtless fol

who has been prominent iu the

many years, is qualified in every
way for the position and his ap

Sentiments of W. A. Dell Rctntivo to
the Crossing nt Forest's.
Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Bell are out
from Princville for their health.
Three days of the delightful climate
of the Deschutes has nearly cured
thciti of the grip and Mr. Bell be
came sufficiently invigorated to
look after some of his political
fences, which, however, he finds
iu excellent condition.
Mr. Bell is the republican nomi
nee for county judge and his slogan
is "Good roads and bridges, mod
erate taxes and an economical ad
ministration of county affairs." This
has n good sound but Mr. Hell goes
into particulars and shows that it is
more than mere sound.
"You people of the western part
of the county ought to have a better
outlet to the railroad and I believe
the cqmity ought to provide it,"
said he. "Crook county ought to
bridge the Crooked river nt For
est's, and it ought to build bridges
across Willow and Trout creeks.
Then you would have a short and
practicable route to the railroad at
all seasons of the year.
"Those bridges should be built
from the county road fund, too.
There is plenty of money on hand.
The last statement showed over
5 r j.ooo in the county road fund,
and yet the people of this part of
the county, who need a bridge at
Forest's, are asked to go into their
pocket and pay for it, after having
put up the money once iu the form
of taxes. What's the use of ac
cumulating money iu the road fund
if no use is to be made of it?
"Our taxes are much higher
than they ought to be, niul money
is constantly accumulating iu the
county treasury. Tins is all wrong.
ln.A a.1rt.t.f Iia .1 1 l.!..!....- ttlft.l Ic
necessary to pay the reasonable ex
penses of government. It is not a
sound policy to pile up funds in the
public treasury, particularly when
the people arc asked to go into their
own private pockets to pay for ncc-
cssary public improvements.
"Our tax levy this year suould
not have been more than 18 mills
on the dollar, whereas ft is more
than 23 mills. This means more pil
ing up of money iu the county treas
ury and more temptation to unwise
use of funds thus held."
Mr. Bell was out in the Agency
Plains region laht week and got a
ducking through a jxor bridge, so
he speaks with real feeling on the
subject of roads and bridges.
W. D. Wheelwright, in a tecent
address to the Portland Chamber
of Cbmmcrce oh the "Future of
Oregon's Resources," said:
" It is simply impossible to over
estimate the value of Oregon tim
ber, if only proper steps be taken
to preserve it, especially when it
is considered that a good deal 6f
the product of the adjacent states
finds its outlet by means of Port
land and the Columbia, the quan
tity tributary to this river being
greater than the aggregate 6f the
timber in the Puget Sound country
and iu British Columbia. It is to
be noted that while the energies of
the citizens of the state and of the
railroads are devoted 6 the fos
tering of its agricultural resiUrccs,
the same energy is being devoted
to the destruction of its forests,
while very little is being done
even to-put the laud iu condition

and. a vandal.
"European countries have for
many years enjoyed the benefit
of laws, under which the forests
nre constantly renewed and never
decimated, so that each succeed
ing year shows just as many

any year before an actually in
exhaustible source of wealth for
its inhabitants. That forests are
not inexhaustible, unless renewed,
is shown by he expcricuc'c of
the middle west, and it is begin
ning to be demonstrated in Ore
gon, and while there the cleared
laud is sjxredily turned into pro
ductive farms and the sites of
growing cities, here in Oregon,
alas! the noble forest, becomes a
wilderness where only stumps of
trees, a useless Undergrowth and
ghastly memorials of .shrivelling
fire proclaim the vandalism and
the neglect of its citizens. It is a
well known fact that good timber
land has been sold in this atatc
during the last two years at fCo
and $70 an acre (as against $to
to $ 25 for good wheat laud), and
yet nothing is done to make one
tree gro(w where one grew before,
