From Mart to fi.nish the game
whs a splendid exhibition of the
hfKjrt. It lusted just one hour and
forty minute and during that time
no one could say with certainty
wIiohu game it was. Iioth teanih
put up a corking good gume, re
iiiiirkalily free from errors and few

At 2 o'clock the game wah called
by I'mpire C. V. Weymouth
Amid a din of cheera and mimic
Mayor Ooodwillie, of Dend, stepied
into the pitcher's box and put a
good fair strike across the plate
and the battle was then o;:.
l'riueville failed to score in their
first inning at the bat but liend
did belter and made one run. The
visitors failed to negotiate until the
third in which a bunch of hard hits
piled up four rutis, the only ones
i hey made. l'riueville stock went
up for a minute, but the home
team took oflf a little of the strain
when they cniue to hot by ticing
the xre. In the fourth Bend
made unothar run and in the bixth
.mother, while the visitors wure
unable to again get around the ring

PINU&T BRICK IN OMGQON.
FtnU Kiln plttlhcd by the Lewis
Tlie Lewis Brick Co. this week
completed the burning ofakiluof
8otcKK brick on the Barney Lewis
homestead and foreman John Gra
ham left yesterday for a visit to his
old home in New Jersey, Some
time next week the kiht will be
opened, and the brick will be ready
A few of the burned bricks have
been taken out and they are
found to surpass all expectations.
It is evident there ia considerable
iron in them and some ofthem are
fairly vitrified. Mr. Gritlrntiu; who
has had a dozen years of experience
with Oregon brick, says Uiat 'the
clay at Lewis s place Is the best
bri,ck material in the state and that
the advent of a railroad will, make
this' bed the, chief producer, ofpav-

Water iii tile Pilot UUtte Canal May I
The D. I. & I Co. has 30 men
at work on the Pilot Butte flume
and would hire more good carpen
ters at $3 a day if it could get them.
The fllihic is expected to be ready
to send water down the canal on the
first day of May. . t
Ten hides ollt on the desert it is
found ncccwary to build a flume
730 feet lohg olid n short distance
lx;yond that another flume 400 feet
long. These will lie about five feet
deep and 10 feet wide and on such
incline :i5 will send all the water of
the big canal thrriugli thetn easily
Lumber for their construction is
now being hauled there from the
Hightower-Smith mill beyond the
Tumalo, and construction work
will proceed as soon as the men can
be spured from other parts Of the
Kock work on the Central Ore
gon canal id going forward with
North of I'orked Horn buttc an
extensive system of laterals is under
construction ami all the farms of
that .section and these are fast
coming to lw numerous will soon
be supplied with irrigation.
The ditch company is now work
ing about 130 men regularly and
would be glad to have more.
TO IRRIGATE MORE LAND
SCIIEHC TO WET PRINOVILLE VALLEY
,Mr. tiuerln lias It In Hand And
County Scat People Will Co-opcr-
nte Willi HlnfJ7,000 Acres.
V. E. Gucriu, jr., Mayor Good
willie, G. C. Steinemaun nnd Tom
Sharp drove over to PrinevilU
Monday and set on foot there 1.
chcme to irrigate 37,00" acreri o.
rich laud in the valley to '.he east
ward of the town. Alotit 6000
acres are deeded, 15,000 belong to
the road company and the remain
der, 16,000 acres, is open govern
As outlined the plan is to dam
the Ochoco river twice and Mill
creek once. Surveys that have
been in progress some time show
the feasibility of leading the water
out of those streams to the thirsty
acres that are now only half cropped
at best. It will take between
$600,000 and ?700,ooo to install
the reclamation enterprise.
The I'rinevillc Business League
has taken the matter up in earnest.
There was a large attendance and
free discussion of the project at a
meeting held last Monday night and
T. M. Baldwin, Thomas Sharp and
C Sam Smith were appointed a
committee to visit Portland and see
what can Ik done with the wagon
road people in the way of getting
encouragement for the work. Mr.
Guerii) will leave for New York
next week in the interest of the
new development project.
LAYING WATER A1AINS.
Streets Torn Up Like In a Metropolis
Pipes put Down.
Yesterday a crew of 25 men was
put at work digging trench and
laying water works main. The
main Was completed from the river
up to Wall street and along Wall
nearly to Oregon, but from that
point south n number of rOck points
were encountered which makes
further progress along the street
slower. The pipe is put down
three feet.. The trench is open
only lon elloHgh to lay the pipe,
when it is, immediately filled. Most
of the rocW cncoutitiired is picked
out but, pouui of it mttst be blasted.
The wnler system will be in opera

BEND'S FIRST FIRE
O'Kane's Saloon and Con
LOSS $-1000; INSURANCE $2400
Probably Started From Flue Between
Celling and RoofA Narrow
Escape for Other Buildings.
Bend's first fire loss came yester
day morning. Hugh O'Kanc's
saloon, at the corner ol Oregon ati'l
Boud-strcels, burned to lhc ground,
with all contents, except the cash
register, a few bottles of liquor, a
painting of Three Sisters and the
telephone. The loss was about
S4000; Insurance $2400.
The fire broke out about 3 a. m.
and was first seen near the flue
that passed through the roof near
the middle of the building. Billy
Robinson had the late watch and,
business being dull, he was lying
on the billard table taking a nap.
His attention was first drawn to the
fire when coals began dropping
from the ceiling. He ran outside
and emptied a revolver in the rut to
give the alarm. This did not.
serve very well, however, for many
jxiople within a block slumbered
unbrokenly. A few were imme
diately attracted and a crowd soon
gathered but there was no means
of fighting a fire that had obtained
such headway nnd attention was
directed to savLig other property.
Billy Robiusott got out the cash rt -gtstcr,
some sacks of coin that were
near by and tried to get $100 out of
the safe. But he couldn't open the
cash drawer and the heat drove
him out so quick that he could onl
slam the safe door shut, without
throwing the bolts. When the
building had melted from around
the iron hulk the door gently fell
ajar and remained to a few minutes
in the midst of the seething coal
Heap. Then it slowly tipped back
ward and the door closed and rc
muined closed. When the safe
cooled off the $100 in paper and
othe- property within it was found
There was nothing else to do but
try to save adjoining property.
Thirty-five feet to the westward
was the new cigar store and bowl
ug alley of O'Kanc. Eighty fett
to the northward was Estebeuct's
saloon and 67 feet southward Ole
Krickson's lodging house. All these
began to smoke iu the fierce heat
and it looked as if the cigar stand
and bowling alley were doomed.
An outhouse between them was
tipped over and rolled out of dan
ger of becoming a link in the spread
of the fire. The Overturf boys
then came along with a full tank of
water that had been left at their
nomc, two blocJts away, the night
before. It was down grade to the
fire and there was plenty of help to
haul the wagoa That brought
relief to the fire fighters, who
plastered the smoking end of the
cigar stand wttn wet oiamccis
rhat kept the fire from spreadiug.
But for the providential preseuce
of this water and the absence of
wind a large part of the town seem
ed doomed. As it was, only the
saloon was destroyed, but its de
struction was complete A tele
phone pole at the corner required
new crossarms after the fire. All
the neighboring buildings show
The fire is supposed to have
caught from the brick flue between
the ceiling and roof, where it
smoldered until a large area was
charred before getting to the air
that caused it to burst into roaring
Besides the building, Mr. O'Katte
lost his restaurant plant, billiartl
tablet piano, tables, safe, stock o"
liquor and cigars, chairs, rcfrigera
tor, bar and numerous other' fix
tures making up a general saloon
Two barrels of water stood iu
the street in front of the saloon, but
nobody seemed to be aware of it in
the irautic hunt for water to apply
at the early stage' of the fire. And
the filled barrels were there after the
b- '"Tins is .quite a wow to me just
