WILL ADVERTISE TIJE TOWN
While there Is Some Opposition to tho
Board's Plans, It Is Believed They
Will Be Adopted by DIstrVt.
The prospects for establishing n
high school in Bend are rnost prom
ising. All indications now point to
u majority in its favor at the elec
tion next Tuesday. A partial can
vass of the voters of the district has
been made by The bulletin, and as
me citizens learn tuc plans as pro
posed by the school board they arc
heartily In favor of the step. When
a voter is told that a high school
must be established if the district is
to teach ninth and tenth grade
studies, that no additional teachers
arc to be hired, no new rooms
opened, no extra expense incurred
when he understands conditions
ns they really exist, he invariably
favors the high school. Discussion
on the street has brought forth the
fan that a mistaken notion is held
by some in that they think the es
tablishing of this high school will
place a large additional expense on
the district. When, however, the
real plans are explained and it is
shown that there will be no added
burden to the taxpayer, there is
very little opposition to the present
movement. The Bulletin found only
a very few who arc opposed to the
The views of a few of the voters
of the district follow:
Dr. C. W. Merrill I am always
heartily in favor of any movement
that will help the town and country.
Hence I certainly favor the estab
lishment of a high school at Bend.
S. C. Caldwell I favor the high
school most emphatically. Kill the
schools of a town and you kill the
town. Those places having the
best educational advantages are the
ones that grow and push ahead.
Their growth is largely caused by
tuetr good schools.
Charles Boyd There can be
nothing done that in any way im
proves school facilities that does not
help greatly in the development of
the country, t favor the establish
ment of a high school here.
H. P J. McDonald I think it a
wise plan and a good thing for the
town. It is foolish to send Bend
scholars nway to school when we
can have the school right here at
A. II. Grant A high school will
draw people here from outlying dis
tricts, mid as present plans contem
plate no additional expense to the
district, why should it not be estab
lished? I certainly am in favor of
a high school at Bend.
J. Prank Stroud I am always in
favor ol building up the public
school system. It is one of the very
lest advertisements a town can
have and helps largely in any town's
Dr. W. L. Nichol The man
with n child who does not vote for
n high school is not voting for the
child's best interests. Neither is
that property owner who Votes
against the high school voting for
his best interests.
J. I. West It is one of the best
things the town can do if it only
IJ. A. Sather I am in favor of a
high school at Bend. It will bring
people to town to live and is a good
1?. J5. Batten I am in favor of a
high school if the plans do not call
for an increased rate of taxation,
and I understand they do not. The
more families and children the
schools bring into town the better
it will be for Bend.
A. I Goodwillie I favor a high
school nt Bend for many reasons.
Kvery week I receive close to 50
letters of inquiry regarding Bend,

possible railroad construction, and
with at least 45 of the 50 the second
question is concerning school facil
ities and churches. This move for
u high schooV calls for1 no larger tax
levy, no additional teachers aud no
new rooms m fact, 110 extra ex
pense whatever. A high school
will draw scholars to Bend from
outlying district. I know of at
least two at Laidlaw and two at
Powell JJuttcs who will come here
next year if wc have a high bchool.

MANY FJUIT TREES PLANTED
Settlers nre Buying from the Nurser

Mauy orchards will be planted in
Bend and vicinity this spring,
flwjght Roberts, representing a
large Salem nursery, has been
spending the week here aud reports
very favorable business. He has
received orders of greater or less
magnitude from a large number ol
the setters, and every one seems
anxious, to s.ct out some fruit and
sec just whflt this country can do
growing it'. In mauy localities
hereabouts orchards are bringing
money into their owners pockets
each year. The numerous orders
taken by Mr. Roberts show that
the settlers have unbounded faith
in this region also as a fruit pro
ducer. Charles Reed, of the Johnston
ranch, placed one of the largest
orders. It included 517 trees be
sides a large number berry bushes.
These he will plant on his home
stead. Cal Eaton also will Dlant a
large number of trees on the Bald

THE VICE-PRESIDENT TAI.K
Loldlaw Man Writes to LonjpTlmo.
Railroad Friend and (lets Oood
Neys of njj Extension. " '
Information rgtch.ed Bc"rt tfs
week from rcliablf. sources that the
Corvallis &. Eastern railway will un
doubtedly commence an excntjion
across Oregon cas and wes. Ru
mors to this effect have been, float
ing about all winter, but the infor
mation now on hand practically
robs these forpicr statements ol all
doubt as to their truthfulness.
"Uncle" Frank Nichols of Itid
law is a long-time persoual friend of
the vice-president of the Corvallis &
Eastern. Recently he wrote a letter
to his railroad friend asking for in
formation as to the' company's in
tention concerning railroad cxtcn
siotiucross Oregon. .Ir. Nichols,
received a letter in reply in which
his friend said: "I hope V? be aide
to make a visit to you before very
long on a railroad." In answer to
inquiries the letter also said that the
Corvallis & Eastern had not been
purchased by Harriraan. and that
the road was not for sale. He also
stated that all financial arrange
ments, necessary for the extension,
of the road, were completed.
A large number of Bend people,
have been pinning their faith to the
Corvallis & Eastern. They reulizc
that an extension of this road across
the state, connecting with some
transcontinental line, would give
Bend and Central Qregon direct
communication with the East, giv
ing an outlet for Oregon 'umber to
the rich Eastern market. Further
more, the products of this vast in
land empire could be shipped over
the mountains to Yaquina Bay and
there landed on ships for the ocean
commerce. An cast and west road
is what the people of this region are.
hoping for, and many are watching
with great interest any move the
Corvallis S: Eastern makes.
The Farmers Institute.
John H. OvertUrf aud L. D.
Wiest have been assigned subjects
for discussion at the farmers' insti
tute at Redmond Saturday, March
3. Mr. Overturf will discuss,
"Proper Seed for the Harvest" and
Mr. Wiest "Planting Fruit on the
Deschutes." Mrs. Estelle Ellis will
give a reading, "In the Catacombs"
and T. W. Zitnmermanu will favor
the gathering with a vocal solo.
This institute is being arranged on
the same plan as the one recently
held at I,aidlaw. People are asked
to bring well filled dinner baskets.
Coffee will be furnished by the com
mittee at Redmond.
Political Meeting: at Redmond.
A meeting will be held at Red
motul next Saturday at which dele
gates elected from various Western
Crook precincts will be present.
This meeting fs a step further in
the plan whereby Western Crook
will take sonic concerted action
to' obtain representation in the
transaction of the county's busi
ness. These delegates are expect
ed to perfect the plan.
A Christian Railroad.
The Co-operative Christian Asso
ciation is again attracting attention
with its plan to build a railroad
from the Williamette valley to Ont
tario. An expenditure of $50,000.
000 is expected to be made by this,
organization in the development of
portions of Eastern Oregon, $15,
000,000 of which will be used in the
construction of this road.
Dr. Wallace, the promoter of
this enterprise, says there is an!
abundance of capital in the East
which can be easily obtained for
this work. The route of the road
has not yet been announced, but it
is expected to be in operation with
in two years.
This federation plans to build cit
ies throughout the state where some
of the difficult questions of labor
and capital are expected to be
solved. In these cities all creeds
may be represented but every in
habitant must have accepted tho
ethics of Christianity. Smoking will
be prohibited on the streets and no
saloons are to be tolerated. The
regular scale will be paid for labor
and if profits are realized by the
city the workmen are to be given a
share, while the bonding company
is to receive 5 per cent interest and
one-fourth of the profits.
