The city council get down to
work Tuesday evening and turned
out quite a grist of business. The
two ordinances introduced by Coun
cibnan John Overturf at the meet
ing of January :o were brought
forward for final consideration. The
011c relating to the Sunday closiug
of all business houses except eating
homos, drug stores, etc. had
roused much opposition from the
citizens. During the past month
no small discussion has been beard
on the streets concerning this pro
posed ordinance, and the general
concensus of opinion seemed to be
iu opposition to its passage. There
fore, when it came before the coun
cil for consideration it was promptly
tabled, and many think will die a
The ordinance prohibiting all
forms of gambling met a more fa

on a vote it carried 4 to 2. As soon

, MADRAS WELLS 00 DRV.
People'of That Town Having Dlfil-
cuity to Uct Water.
Many of the wells at Madras
which have been supplying the
surrounding country to a large ex
tent with water have gone dry.
There are two explanations given
for this. One is that the great de
mand on these wells has takett the
water from them faster than it
can flow iu from the springs which
feed the wells. Madras as is well
known, lies in a natural basin.
In this basin it has been possible to
get water by sinking wells, but n
few miles from town water cannot
be found. Naturally, therefore,
there has been a great tax on the
wells in Madras.
The other explanation is rather
extaordinary. Recently a well was J
drilled there und at the depth of
250 feet the drill broke into a
cavity. It is believed by soule tftat
the water 13 now draihiug into this
cavity through this opening. Mad
ras people are now Singing, "You
never miss tlie water till the well
runs dry. ,

able in 10 or 20 yeats, optional with
the school board.
The board called for bids on
$6,000 worth of bonds at 6 per cent,
payable, cither in td or 20 years.
There were numerous inquiries sub
mitted iu response to this call, antt
quite a number of bids placed. The

STAGE LINE CHANQES HANDS
Q. M. Cornett Buys Back the Bend-
A. deal has been recently closed where
by G. M. Cornett of frineville buys
from the Bend Livery & Transfer Co. iu
stage line from fiend to Prinevlllc. The
sale only includes the stock of the com
pany, consisting of horses and wagons.
Mr. Cornett has also released the Cookii
from their contract to carry mall from
Bend to Silver Lake.
Mr. Stroud reports that Mr. Coruett
is seriously considering a cltangc in the
time schedule from Prinevillc to Silver
Lake. This clwnt;e contenlptatca a new
division of the route. One station would
be placed at Vandevert's ranch, which is
about 3j miles south of fiend, and an
other at some middle point between
Vanilevert's and Silver Lake. The mail
would start from Silver Lake at 2:30 a .
in., would arrive at Oend about 5 o'clock
that evening and at Prinevillc between
11 and 12 o'clock that night. For pa&s
engar travel this plan lias some advan
tages. The ride across the desert during
the summer in day time is uncomfortably
warm. The plan being considered
would do away with this and would get
iiassengcrs iu Prineville in time to take
the daylight stage to; Shnniko with a
wult of only a few hours.
Mr. Cornett took possession of these
lines yesterday, the 15th.
Tho Little Brother Oocs Also.
Many stories arid jokes have
been told of the" "little brother"
and his unpleasant pranks when
the elder brother and siiter "went
courting," but Bend ttow dumbers
among its youngsters oue who has
introduced a touch of originally in
the Usual proceedings. The ride to
Laidlaw last lr riday evening by two
of Bend's popular young couples
was a very pleasant ' affair beyond
doubt, but was probably not so
pleasant for the little brother, who
had stowed himself away under the
back seat. It is well known that
"Doc" possesses a kind heart, but
we did not suppose this quality of
the heart led h.im to take the little
brother onhese very pleasant
trips, such aa the one above referred
to. For further particulars, "write
to or call on" Creed or "Doc."
