The Rend Mngn.ii;e Club i at
Inst In a home of iu own. Wednes
ilav afternoon it moved from
the office of J. M. Lawrence, where
it lma been imperfectly accom
modated sjnee ila organization last
August, to a flue front room on the
second floor of tlte Johnton 3tory
building on Wall street. There it
haa excellent liglt and facilities for
the functions of a reading rooom.
Thiee tabled 9 feet long are iu the
room and the jieriodicals are where
they can be auitably cared for.
Though not yet fully equipped, it is
ready for those who wish to patron-:
ize a reading room.
This magazine club started from
a suggestion of J. II. Overturf in
the Ik 1 id Literary and Debating
society last summer. A subscrip
tion paper was started iu the hope
of getting $20 or fyo for a few mag
ar.itie that could not then lie had
here. The idea was so well receiv
ed that about $90 was provided.
Then it was resolved U) call it the
Heud Magazine Club and to sepa
rate it front the work of the debat
ing club iu order to broaden its
kcope. Rut wmebody must care
for it. l'itiallv the whole mauaee-

everything necessary to maintain
the club. This committee subscrib
ed for the periodicals and formulat
ed a few rules. There was tjo fund
from which to pay anything for
rent or other maintenance charges,
so the club lias been qbliged to get
along without quarters of its own
Later another committee com
posed of J. II. Overturf, Mrs. Rat
ten and N. I Weider was appoint
ed to provide a reading room iu
which the magazine club should be
accommodated. The resplt of this
committee's labors is seen iu the
present reading room.
At the meeting of the debating
society Wednesday night steps
were taken to put the reading
room on an independent basis
independent of the debating so
ciety. To this end it was agreed
to call a meeting of the subscribers
to the magazine fund at the reading
room next Wednesday night, when
it is expected full arrangements will
be made for the future conduct of
Before this action was taken,
however, the rejwrt of the reading
room committee was presented, iu
which a plan was outlined for car

The women are to oversee the
institution in daytime, the men are
to do so evenings. Iu order that
there should be fixed responsibility
it was deemed wise to assigu some
person definitely for some of the
time, making him or her responsible
for the proper conduct of the read
ing room for that time. He or she
may get assistance, and in this way
the burden will be passed around,
but the resjonsibility for the assist
ance will rest directly upon the per
son whose duty it is to provide for
the given time. Kach of the fol

LIKes the Deschutes Country.
R. K. Ramsey, of Sunduhky, O.,
arrived last Sunday morning to
spend a week or two with W. 15.
Guerin, jr., with whom he was
formerly associated in the practice
of law. Some of his experiences
before reaching Rend gave him
rather unfavorable impression of
the country, but here he found eve
ry thing attractive and he has be
come thoroughly converted to the
idea that tlie Deschutes country is
at the threshold rcat develop
ment, litiays -a great many peo
ple in ttoe toast ore eager for infor
mntfon -acout this section and one
ol ithe numoses of his visit is to
get in personal contact with the'
country anu ten ins eastern irienas
Dr. Jessie Guerin, of Ravensdale,
Wash., brother of W. E. Guerin,
jr., arrived Tuesday for his first
visit on the Deschutes. He re
cently returned from a trip to Eu
rope for his health. -
A. K. Weesner is temporary
carrier of mail between Rend and
Laidhuv. He makes four 'round
trips .i week, coming tip from
LaiiVlaw iu the morning and leav

FINANCES OF BEND
Revenue in Sight for Vis
ible Needs of City,
NO QHNI2RAL LICENSE IN IT
fistlmato of Income for the Year
$3,800 and Expenditures for
Snmc Period $3,309.
Following is a statement of the
estimated revenue and estimated
expenses of the city of Rend for thr
prescnt official year. First, let us
have an estimate of the probable
Salary of marsBal -....- fy,t
Salary of night watchaaSa - -
Salary of recorder -- j.i
Salary of traaMnrr t - - - '
City jail .yS
Total , f. "9
These are already fixed and cer
tain expenditures of the year, un
less there should be retrenchment
on the police force, of which there
is no present evidence. Now comes
the variable items, of which part
has already been expended:
SnpplUm ........ .
Incidental ......... iv
Total ........ f;v
Resides these, an ordinance is
now before the council providing
for a city attorney at $350 a year.
Assuming titat it will pass, we have
a total of expenditure now in sight
The chief revenue will come
from saloon licensori. Three saloons
have already paid $t,8oo into the
city treasury and two more licenses
will be due before the end ol the
year. Five saloon licenses at $600
will yield $3,000.
In the past two weeks the city
has received in fines $45 in cash.
It has also been out a little for
board of prisoners. But the ordi
nance for working city prisoners is
now in force and it is probable that
all will be made to earn their way,
or more, hereafter. Their work,
however, will not bring cash rcve-.
nue, but it will probably do all the
street improvement required by the
city, with the exception of getting
lumber for the crosswalks. These
matters cannot be accurately stated
Recorder's court fines will proba
bly yield $500 for the year. If the
license ordinance now before the
council should pass iu its present
form (not including general mer
chants, meat markets, blacksmiths,
etc, which has been merely talked
of) it would probably bring to the
city treasury another S300. This
comes down to the following sum
mary; KUnialed nscef jrts of t! city - f 3Soa

llalauce ....... fjoj
It may be that before the end of
the year the city will need some
street hydrants and fire-fighting
apparatus. It is also possible that
$250 will not cover incidentals.
Hut it is quite as possible that the
receipts will be materially increased
by the addition of a saloon or two
and by a larger income from fines
aud minor licenses.
New Land Company.
A new corporation has just been
organized in Minnesota to take
over the pine lauds of the A.J.
Dwyer Pine Land Company ami
the holdings of S. S. Johnson in
the Deschutes valley. It is the
Deschutes Lumber Company, the
same name as that under which
Steidl & Reed do part of their busi
ness. Samuel S. Johnson, of San
Francisco, is the president of the
new corporation, and his jon, S.
Orie Johnson, secretary aud treas
urer. Roth men are well known
here, the young man having spent
a considerable time in the timber
south of Rend last fall. This com
pany has already acquired about
35,000 acres of timber land in the
belt south of Bend and it continue
to pickup au occasional claim.
