Last week, in quoting General
Manager Johnston for the capacity
of the proposed flume, the word
! 'inches" got into he paper instead
of "feet." The new flume will
carry 650 cubic feet of water per
second, sufficient to supply 400 cu
bic feet to the Central Oregon and
550 cubic feet to the Pilot Untie
"Talk about crops," said Marsh
Awbrey, the sage of the Deschutes
on his return from Lane county
this week, "we've got the Willam
ette valley skinned. I sec oats, rye,
alfalfa and potatoes and even fruit
on this side of the range that tec-
totally skunks anything they've
got on the other side this year.
The only trouble over here is that
too few people arc farming and so
little of the land is now actually
The question of supplying water

cqtno up to the Deschutes Irrigation
& Power Company. This company
docs not feci at liberty to make at
this time any arraugments fbr out
side service. General Manager
Johnston takes the view that the
company must fulfill its obligations
to the govcrraent first, after which
it will be free to deal with outsiders
if it shall then be desirable. But to
bind the company, at this stage of
the work, to contracts that might
in the end be found detrimental to
the main purpose in view, is deem
ed unwise, and the. company declines
to make any agreement for outside
service. It docs expect to have

This is one of the important enter
prises that should be permitted to
leel the uplifting hand of th'j Ore

That's n spirit that will bring re
sults if the civil authorities and
business interests involved will !c
guided by it and act upon it. Bend
will do its full share. It will go
deep into its pocket to assist n road
across the mountains that shall
bring the relief we seek.
Change in II. At. Co,
A change that was for some time
under negotiation was consummat
ed in the lleud Mercantile Comtxitiy
this week. Duncan McMillan and
J. I). Honey man bought stock in 1
the corporation, the former succeed
ing to the management of the busi
ness, vice A. II. Grant resigned.
l. V. Batten was made secretary
and treasurer of the corporation at
the annual meeting in July.
The store is undergoing remodel
ing to make room for an enlarged
line of drygoods, shoes and men's
hats. A larger and better stock is
to be carried hereafter and nothing
will be omitted that will make the
business fit the demand at this point.
The saloon at Lytic closed its
doors last Saturday, just after a row j
between a tmen worKtnan named
Spinks and Ballard Gile had taken
place there, in which the stovepipe
was knocked down and, in falling,
disfigured Spink's faced. There is
said to be the question of sale of
mortgaged property involved in the
saloon closing, Mr. Cobb claiming
a bill of sale from Charley Brock
for property that Prineville parties
claim n chattel mortgage for. Brock
and his family left about two weeks
ago and it is reported they will lo
cate in the Willamette valley.
George Bates is in from the
Forked Horn construction camp
and will go with his family to the
homestead up the Deschutes Mon
day. He provided for the gastro
nomic demands of the camp nearly
four months and then got a crick
in the back that laid him off for

ON TO BEND.
The Salotu Statesman, of which
ex-Governor Geer is editor, in the
course of a very seilsible article on
The Bulletin's invitation for the
Willamette volley to help get a road
to fiend, says;
"From a 10 years' residence in
Eastern Oregon the editor of the
Statesman familiar with the in
comparable possibilities of that en
tire section, and since the reclama
tion of its immense areas of arid
lands is earnestly begun, this paper
feels that now is the time for the
Willamette valley to look ahead
somewhat to its own future advan
tages. And the construction of a
good, dependable wagon road be
tween Maridn county and Crook
county is one of the most important
enterprises in this direction that is
now perfectly feasible.
"The continuation of the Ya
quina road over the Cascades into
Eastern Oregon is as certain to be
accomplished as that the Willam
ette river flows from here to the
Columbia, but this certainty in no
wise diminishes the demand for
free and permanent communication
between Marion and Crook coun
ties or that portion of Kastcru Ore
gon. It is to be hoped that the
present move on the part of this
and Linn counties will result in
