A BEET SUGAR MOVE
Colony 5)f Exjterfs Likely
to Locate Here.
SOIL AND CLIMATE JUST RKH.T
Utah People Who Established Indus
try In Canada Now Como
Steps arc under way for the loca
tion of a colony of Utah beet sugar
experts on the irrigated lauds of the
Deschutes Irrigation & Power Co
The people just now interested
come from the province of Alberta,
Canada, whither they went from
Utah a few years ago. They were
told the beet sugar industry could
not be established in that northern
land, because previous attempts
had failed. Hut these people knew,
not half knew, their business, and
they succeeded. Now many of
them wish to get back to n milder
climate and the Deschutes country
just suits them.
Kight of the men from Alberta
have, been in Uend the past week
James iSvaus, S. G. Stookc, Henry
Holmes, R. Rastmisseii, J. J. Head,
Whit Stoddard, T. M. Holmes and
Mclvin Godfry. Some of these
have gone away leaving Messrs.
Evans, Head and Rasmusscn as a
committee to arrange for land. Re
fore leaving Alberta 20 of his neigh
bor families wanted Mr. Kvans to
include them in the plans for re
moval to Oregon.
Mr. Kvans is a man of consider
able means null large experience
in the production of sugar beets and

lcct sugar on both the theoretical
Jtul practical sides. He has a son
mow studying chemistry in liclgium.
This industry, upon irrigated land.",
had its first home in Utah and it
has proved a great success there.
Mr. Kvans is thoroughly satisfied
with the natural conditions for
otiilding up an extensive and pros
perous beet sugar in lustry here
ami he says it can be done right
away. It is entirely feasible to
have a big beet sugar mill in opera
tiotl in Iicud by the fall of 1906.
Transportation will cut- quite a
figure ill this industry. It will
take more than 200 tons of machin
ery for the niill aiid a still greater
tonage of structural steel. A mil
lion feet of lumber will also be re
quired, but this will be provided at
home. A car load of sulphur will
be needed every season, several
carloads of lime, and then there
will be the product of the mill to
send out to market. The settlers
and workmen engaged iti the in
dustry will make a large general
commerce here. So this one insti
tution will make u large volume of
traffic for a railroad.
"The soil is right- and the
climate favorable to the production
of sugar beets on the wide plain
east of Bend," said Mr. Kvans to
a Bulletin man; "and I have no
doubt the country in other direc
tions is also suited to it. Eighteen
inches depth of soil is ample for ir
rigated beet culture. Beets will
stand more cold weather and more
drouth than any other ordinary
larm crops. Beet sugar is more
cheaply produced han cane sugar
and it is a richer sugar, notwith
standing the popular prejudice and,
the market to the contrary. The
tests at the Chicago and St Louis
expositions showed its superior
richness. The beet sugar industry
will work closely all the resources
of a country will make full use of
the soil, make business for men
chants and mechanics and all activi
ties of community life. The refuse
pulp from the mill is a most valuable
fattener of live stock, particularly
the old animals with defective teeth.
I am greatly pleased with the out
look here and expect to see a large
beet sugar industry soou establish
The particular locality in which
the beet people are arranging for
land is on the east side of the old
river bed. The mill wijl be at
Bend, convenient to water and to
a rich productive area west of the
Deschutes and on the upper reaches
of the river in. the vicinity of Ros-
land. Probably 150 Utah families
will come here from Alberta.

Council Tries to Modify
COMPANY FILES ACCePTANC
City Wa'nted Deflnlta TImo So fo4
Beginning; Construction and
At the regular council meeting1
held last Tuesday evening Alder
man McMillan proposed a modifi
cation of the ordinance previously
passed granting a franchise to the
Bend Water, Light & Power Co.,
which ordinance was published in
last week's Bulletin. He said that
since its passage he had thought it
had not been given sufficiently care
ful consideration and he wanted the
matter attended to before it had
accepted by the company. Other
members of the council agreed nvith
him and after considerable discus
sion a new drdinanc" was intro
duced and read first time.
The design of this measure was
to work forfeiture of the franchise
ordinance the work of actual con
struction shouldu not -be begUri by
April 1 andVccular.' water service
supplied oa Vall atid Bond streets
between Nevada and Ohio by
August 30. " It was also put iti tub
ordinance, which was designed as
an additional section to the original
franchise, that the service should
force water through a ij-inchhosc
nozzle a Vertical -distance of 50 feet
at the cornerof Bdtid and driJgou
streets. All the aldermen were pres
ent aud agreed to the proposal. Ad
journment was taken till Wednes
day night when it was expected the
amendment would be passed, before
formal acceptance of the franchise
should be filed by the compatly. -
Wednesday morning,- rfadwevcr.
the company ivos aware of the
action of the' council and it filed
with the recorder a formal accept
ance 01 the franchise - ordinance
according to the terms of the ordi
nance. When the time for council
raectiug arrived in the evening only
tVldermen McMillan, Merrill and
O'Kanc were present. There being
no quorum they adjourned until
last night. '
Last night all the aldermen were
present again, with Aldermau Red
field, who had been selected Mayor
pro tempore Tuesday night, in the
chair. The franchise matter was
not taken up at all but a committee
pieviously appointed to see about
getting legal service for the city
reported that Mr. Guerin would
not accept the city attorneyship at
all but that George C. Steincmann
would take the' office rJor $350? a
year. Thet committee consisting
of Alderman O'Kri McMillan,
and Merrill,' r. was Instructed to pre
pare ai ordinance for the appoint
ment of city attorney at $350 a
year. Then an adjournment till
next Tuesday night was takeu.
At the Tuesday night meeting
Al Yancy was appointed uight
watchman at $50 a month on
motion Alderman O'Kaue.
Two ordinances were passed,
providing for the punishment of
disorderly conduct and vagrancy.
The matter of accepting the city
jail was referred to a committee
consisting of Merrill, West aud
