CANAL IS FINISHED
Channel Now Through to
CAMP BROUdllT MACK TOTOWN
Pilot Uutte Force Now Joins Central
Last Friday the Pilot Ihittc can
al was completed to Crooked river
and next day the camp was brought
to Hend. It is .spending a few days
here before going out on the
Central Oregon canal construction
to reinforce the crews already there.
This will add about .125 men and
40 teams to the Central Oregon
work and materially hasten the
completion of that line. Ten teams
at the 1'ilot Butte enmp belonged to
the grading force of Archie Mason,
on the automobile line, and when
the ditch camp broke up they
weul to Madras, where they have
other work to do.
The Pilot Uutte canal is about
30 miles long, from headworks
to Crooked river. Unlike most
rivers it is biggest at its source.
For a distance of several miles at
the lower end it is only 4 fcc( wide
at the bottom. That is not a fifth
of the width at Hend. However,
the slope of the country near
Crooked river is so great that the
comparatively mall channel will
carry all the water that can be
turned into it.
This line to Crooked river is
really Lateral A, which is the ex
tension p,f the main canal. That is,

the main canal as marked on the
uginccr maps merges info Lateral
at the northwest corner of Tp. 16
S K. 13 K. At that point the
main canal rests for the present,
the settlers beiug PU the land
reached by tho lateral. Later the
main ditch, between the present
Lateral A and the river, will le
The transferred camp will take up
work on the Central Oregon canal
at a point about to miles cast of
Hend, as soon as the retiring frosts
will permit canal excavation to ad
vantage. That will put a force of
about 300 men and 200 teams, to
say nothing of machine drills, road
nincliiiios and patent excavators,
on the one big canal' and it will
carry water to the old river bed
early in the spring.
CITV PRISONERS MUST WORK
Ordinance toThat llffect Passes Coun-
At the council meeting last Tucs
day night the ordinance to provide
for working city prisoners was read
second time and finaly passed over
the objections of Alderman O'Kane.
Hrickson, McMillan, .fcrrijl, Red
field and West voted Aye, and
O'Kane Xo. O'Kane's objection
was that i gave the marshal too
much power over prisoners. The
mayor being alsent, this ordinance
cannot become effective until 10
days after passage.
A question as to the liability of
the Smith & Geek and the Dcbing
& Whitsett saloons to do business
without a city license has arisen.
The state law by its terms docs not
apply to incorporated cities and
towns. In these cases, however,
license under the state law was ob
tained before the incorporation of
Hend, One license runs to next
November and the other to next
May. The question is, Can these
saloons do business under the state
law now that Bend is an incorpor
ated city? The city takes the
ground that they must comply with
the city regulations in order to do
business in the city, uotwithstnnd.
ing their county license; that the
matter of getting a refund on the
county license is something the
city has nothing to do with. The
license under state law is only $400
n year, while the city requires a fee
of $600 a year. The question at
issue has been submitted to a dis
interested attorney, whose advice
may clear it up.
No Dally Mall Just Yet.
L. A. Booth; of Prineville, one
of the petitioners for increase of
mail service to seven times a week
between Hend and Prineville, has

Two Men Injured.
Two meu of ditch camp No. 2
were this morning engaged in drill
ing out a powder charge that had
failed to explode. The old charge
was accidentally set off and the two
men were considerably injured
about the head and will possibly
lose the, sight of their eyes.
Ladies, do not send away for your
spring nud summer footwear before
examining the new stock that ar
rived this week at The Bend Mer

are of the best ami the prices right.
Preparations for Burning
INDUSTRY FqRQARNEY LEWIJj
Prospecf That Several Drlclc Struc
ture Will jo up In
A loo.ooo, kiln of brick ifl to bo
burnt on. the Barney Lewis home
stead as. soon as, the material can be
got together and the bricks 'mould
ed. There is art abundance of
material ami it makes first class
Last fall, when it was discovered,
that brick materials could be had
here, Stickel & Son burnt a kiln of
14,000 brick, which, it was an
nounced, would build all the chim
neys needed in Bend for two years.
Hut the supply was used up by
Thanksgiving day. Since then
stone has been used and recently,
when it was too cold to quarry
stone, brick was brought from,
Prineville. But the Prineville brick
are found to lie Qf very poor quality
and very high cost at Bend. Dis
covery of even better materials
than were known here last fall is
another rcasqn for starting a large
kiln and good brick may be pro
duced here so cheaply that they
may supplant wood in much of the
building to h done here.
There is now prospect that two.
brick buildings will be constructed
in the spring, and possibly a, third.
The brick-making firm will be.
known as the Lewis Brick Compa
ny. The kiln will be out at the.
homestead where sand and water
will be hauled easier than to haul
the clay away to the water and sand.
