(.. D. Wlest, Clerk of Bend DUtrlct,
(Uvea Interesting Ffxurcs on
ftio School Question.
"Tlje question of establishing,, a
high, school at Bend will save mon
ey to the district," said L. D.
Wicst, clerk of the Bend school
board, to a Bulletin reporter recent
ly. "When first considered the
average voter would naturally think
a high school would be an extra
cxjwnsc to the tax-payers, but such
is not the case," said Mr. Wicst.
away frdm Bend? 1 do iibt believe
the voters desire to do that.
"The rapid increase of the as
sessed value of property in the dis
trict will lessen the burden on each
taxpayer. Notwithstanding that
the district had $400 to pay on the
old building, a 5400 deficit for 1905
and $350 interest on bonds for 1906
total of $1,150 the levy for this
year is two mills less than for 1903.
As the country settles the amount
of taxable property wiH increase,
each year's levy will probably de
crease and the burden on the tax
payers will uot be heavy.
"I have considered this wholly
from a financial point of view. But
do we not need here in Bend those
educational facilities that will give
our children equal opportunities
with those of other communities? Is
Bend satisfied to take a back seat in
this respect? I am confident it is
not, and that the voters will give a
large majority at the coming elec
tion in favor of a high school at

"I can easily show that instead of
being an added burden it will be a
wise step from a financial view, lay
ing entirely aside the duty we owe
our children to furnish them an ad
"The plans at present contem

loom no additional expense what
ever Last fall ninth and tenth
grade studies were added to the
Bend curriculum. Information re
cently received from State Superin
tendent Ackcrnuu says that under
Oregon law the citizens must estab
lish this school by voting on the
question, or we must stop teaching
these two grades. This means that
four scholars would then be de
prived of school privileges here.
"As the town grows the high
school will require more teachers
and will make an additional ex
pense. Let us look at the financial
side of the question as it affects us
now and as it will affect us in the
future. This year there are five
scholars from Bend attending school
at Salem Sylvester and Prince
Staats, Maud and William Vande
vert and Iva West. On a conserv
ative estimate it must require at
least $200 a year to send each of
these to an outside school. With a
high school at Bend that means
$1,000 put in circulation right here
in our own community which is
now being taken away. And where
there are now only five being sent
to an outside school, in time there
will be many more, thus taking
much more money and business
away from Bend.
"When a new teacher is needed
he will cither bring a family here,
which would add somewhat to the
town's business, or he would have
to board. At a low estimate he, if
unmarried, would spend from Sc-
to $400 a year for the necessaries of
life. That sum, say $350, added
tothe$!,ooo now speut at Salem
makes $ 1,350 that would.be added
to the volume of business here un
der present conditions. Further
more, parents in smaller adjoining
towns would be sending their chil
dren to school here. These parents
and friends would be coming to vis
it the children during the school
year, iney would patronize our
hotels and would help in the gen
eral amount of business done. The
high school would also be the means
of bringing permanent residents
to Bend. For proof of this we cite
the fact that we now have four fam
ilies who have moved here to send
their children to our school. At
the recent Laidlaw institute I was
told by different persons that they
would send their children to Bend
if we established a high school.
Thus this would be a constantly in
creasing source of income for Bend
"A high school teacher's salary
would not excerd $675 a year. Over
against that we have the $1,000
which is now being seut away from
Bend. Add what this teacher
would spend here and the increase
of business such a school would
bring and a conservative estimate
would place $2,000 brought to the
town's business houses at an ex
pense of not more than $700 or
$800. livery resident of the town
and vicinity would share in this in
crease of business, for where money
is in circulation times are cow and
everyone reaps his shure.
"We now have four scholars humnre,
the ninth and tenth grades. At
the beginning of the next school

EXHAUSTED IN THE SNOW.
Former Bend Atnn Has Terrible Ex
perience In Recent Storm.
John Elder, who formerly lived
at Bend and is well known here,
came near losing his life in the
recent heavy snow storm which
came two weeks ago Monday. He
was- working for John E. Ryan
and was feeding cattle at Crain
Prairie. When the storm first
arose he took a horse and started
to keep a trail open from the cattle
at Crain Prairie to Montgomery's
place on Fall river. From there
to the Ryan ranch the trail was to
be kept open by Mr. Ryan himself,
but as it turned out uo work was
required on the latter end of the
Elder made one trip through to
Montgomery's and then early in
the morning started back for Crain
Prairie. The snow was so heavy and
so deep that he could not make more
man nan me required distance, so
that night he returned to Montgom
ery's. In the morning he again set
out through the snow, and the fol
lowing night camped out in the
storm. He had a few matches and
was able to build a fire. The fol
lowing day his horse gave out and
he was forced to leave him and
proceed on foot. Night overtook
him again, his matches were wet,
and he could not build a fire. The
next morning he came staggering
into camp at Crain Prarie, badly ex
hausted and delirious. It is said he
could not have gone another mile
It trauspired that he had camped
the preceding night only three-
quarters of a mile from his destina
tion. It took him from daylight
until 10 o'clock to come that three
quarters of a mi'e. He had been
out two nights and part of the
third day, and had had only two
small biscuits to eat.

old grizzly bear that for
has made a pilgrimage
through these parts each spring has
recently passed through this sec
tion. Tom Ryan reports he saw
tracks of the old fellow aud where
he slept in the hay at the Oonkle
place up at The Meadows. The
tracks measured seven inches in
width and 13 inches long.
Thursday morning Bill Brock,
Al. Howell and Carlyle Triplctt
took Brock's hounds and started out
to get the bear if possible. From the
Donkle place he was headed north
east, and the hunters started for the
ice caves country in hopes of head
ing him off or at least crossiug his
trail. They took blaukcts and pro
vision with them and if the trail is
ut all fresh, they lutetid to stay with
it until they bag the bear or the
bear bags them. . ( kr.

Shall Ve4tehi drddk county
represented ott the board of counYv
commissioners and shall dbe or more
of its citizens perform official duties
in the court house at Prineville?
That is the question that is attract
ing the attention of the voters
throughout the whole of Western1
Crook, extending from Madras and
the Hay Creek country ott the north
to the southern line of the county.
The agitation is producing action.
Wednesday night a meeting of
the voters of the Bend and Des
chutes precincts Was called at the
B. M. hall in Bend. Mayor Good
willle was chosen chairman and
J. D. Honeyilian secretary. Mr.
Goodwillie ahnoun&fd the' ridrtosc
of the meeting to be for considera
tion, by the voters, of the best
means to obtain adequate represen
tation in the transaction of the coun
ty's business. Heretofore the in
terests of this part of the county
have not received thtf attention
which their importance warranted,
and considerable dissatisfactidd has
been caused thereby. It was
thought that If a commissioner liv
ing in Westcni Crook and acquaint
ed with its needs collld be chosen
at the coming election a large per
cent of this difficulty would be re
moved. The very rapid develop
ment of this part of the county dur
ing the past three or fdUr years has
created property that is bearing a
large proportidn of thK taxes of.th
county. Tllis, with thb iucredscd
population, tnakfcS Ihb request Sox
representation in the" fc'ollnty's busi
ness a reasonable add just one. ,
After the foregoing conditions
had been presented the discussion
turned on the very important ques
tion an Id hw this restllt was 19 be
accomplished. L. D. Wiest.atarted
the ball rolling. Cd-bperdtion and
union of action were' his solution, of
the problem. Thomas Tvqet, JF. C.
Rowlec, Hugh O'tfane, T. I. West,
A. H. Grant, J, Frank Stroud and
Earl McLaughlin joined in the dis
cussion, the concensus of opinion
being that the nomination for the
desired offices vihould be secured, on
one of the regtilar paftV tickets, of
good men from. -Western Crook.

It was the expression of the meet
ing that such action does not con
template a fight against other parts
of the county. The voters realize
that the surest way to obtain a just
demand is .!& united effort. The
plan so far "developed is to secure
the nomination! of competent men.
thereby drawing support for them
