TO CROSS THE RANGE
Agitation for Wagon Road
is Taken Up.
LETTER PROM JOHN MINTO
Me Says the Route (a Feasible And
Point to Some of Advantages-
May Rcleaxe Strip of Reserve.
C. II. Fostc, of Sisters, is agita
ting the matter having some sort o
railroad into Crook county. H
prefers that it come across the
mountains. As a .starter he think
a wagon rond would be useful and
he wishes to leuru the sentiment 0
the public, and particularly of those
who have large interests at Make
and special knowledge at their
command relative to the matter.
Recently he sent a letter of in
quiry to Hon. John Minto, the
Oregon pioneer who knows more 01
the practicability of crossing the
range with a wagon road than anv
other man, and received a reply
that is crowded with interest for
this region. An important part 01
its news is the statement that a
movement is well under way to re
lease a strip of the. Cascade reserve
that will serve for transportation
and jwwer puroses. Mr. Minto

ureal future interest in getting this
strip elimiimted from the reserve. The

miles of which was measured last sum

Then the upier inirtion of the Sautiam

I have maintained 11 friendly corres
pondence with Hon. Clifford Pinchot,
though lielieve n lietter (xilicy than the
present would lie to admit tlie forested

him indicates the present system may ho
modified to admit trial of this.

sincerely hope the settlers of which

may compare this route with either the

UOND ELECTION ORDERED.
To Authorize Borrowing: $3500 for
a New Schoolhouse.
I.nst Monday the Bend school
board ordered au election to be
held May 31 in the B. M. Hall to
decide the question of bonding the
school district for $3500 to build a
new school house. Since then a
quite general setitiment in favor of
a large sum has been made man!
fest but it is not likely that a change
in tile amount will be made unless
the demand is urgent, for such
change would entail a material de
lay in the proceedings. Also, the
board is inclined to conservatism
and docs not believe in making a
large debt unless there shall be
clear necessity for it. More bonds
may be voted later if it shall be
The petition for the bond election
is as follows;
To the lioard of directors of school
lUlrict Number 12, Crook county, state
We, the undersigned taxpayers of
school district Number 13, Crook county,
)rcgon, hereby respectfully ask you to
submit to the hik"' oter of said school
district the question of contracting n
bonded debt of said school district in a
sum not to exceed three thousand five
hundred (uoo) dollars, for building pur
poses, Rndlliat ou call a school election
lor that purpose.

It is found that the qualifications
of voters at a lwnd election will be
closely scrutinized. None but tax
payers will be legal voters not
those who own property which was
on last year's tax roll merely, but
the name of the voter must have
been on last year's roll or he or she
must own shares in a firm or cor
poration thus qualified. The only
exception is where one ha- recently
purchased property that wxs on
last year's roll, but is bound by
deed or contract to pay the tax
It will probably be found advisa
ble in order to fortify the bonds
beyond question in this regard, to
exact an oatli from every voter
whose name docs not appear on
last year's tax roll. Restricting
the vote to those actually paying
on last year's tax roll will make the
vote a small one, but tinder the in
structions of the state superintend
ent this appears to be unavoidable.
BEND WINS AOAIN.-.
With a 10 to 7 Score, Prlneville Is
Beaten Third Time.
The llend ball tossers again wal
loped Prineville with a score of 10
to 7 lost Sunday at the latter's
grounds. This is the third suc
cessive time that Bend has beaten
the men who live over on Crooked
river, and makes a satisfactory
proof that the home team is the
best in Crook county.
Prineville started off with a new
uitcher, Gulliford, who conies from
Antelope or somewhere else, and
in the first inning Ucnd made three
runs. Prineville was then contenj
to put llailey back on the slab.
Prineville failed to score until the
third chapter, when Pord succeeded
in reaching the home plate. At
the end of the first half of the fifth
the score was 9 to 1. It is said it
was a school boy's game. Henr
saw no necessity of playing ball, and
Prineville couldn't. "Uilyeu has
got Prineville over a barrel," said a
spectator. "He let them get three
men on bases and fanned out the
batters for no score. They can't
do anything with Bilyett when he
gets down to business."
Prineville will get beat again on
the bend diamond next Sunday
If the Sisters team comes, the home
team will play them both. The

above the Suemorc county bridge,
last Sunday afternoon.
They anchored the boat with a
rock dropped on, the bottom of the
river, a rope being attached thereto.
Dr. Nichol ordered, them away but
they said they were not on his land
and had a right there and they did,
not go promptly but drifted along

over a pait of the Bates uninclosed
land to get bis cow and that Mrs.
Hates bad used unbecoming Ian

bond in the sum of $100 to keep the
peace, J. W. White becoming
