NAMES A CANDIDATE
Redmond Meeting Adopts
lnn of Action.
ASKS FOR REPRESENTATION
Delegates from Western Crook Coun
ty Present Name of R, II. Uayley
The meeting held at Redmond
last Saturday for the consideration
of county political matters agreed
upon a plan looking to the election
of a county commissioner from
Western Crook. Representatives
from a goodly number of precincts
were present and everything was
It was agreed to induce, if possi
ble. R. H. Uayley of Laidlaw to en
ter the field for tin nomination of
commissioner, believing tnat lie
would prove a popular candidate
with nil parts of the county. It was
the sentiment of the meeting that
Western Crook was not planning a
fight against other portions of the
county. As the transaction of coun
ty business, like all other forms of
American government, is supposed
to be done by the people's repre
sentatives, it is believed that West
ern Crook, with its rapid settlement
and development of the last two
years, is entitled toatlcastone man
on the county board. Hence Mr.
Baylcy s name is presented to the
Hut when just requests arc de
nied there are frequently other
means by which desired ends can
be obtained. It was the decision of
the meeting that if there is a move
ment by other parts of the county
to turn down this, request for a
commissioner that tlicn a ugnt
would fpllpw, with the result that
not only a commissioner would be
elected but several other county
officers also The precincts repre
sented at this meeting can control
enough votes which, with the
scattering vote that would be re
ceived from other precincts, would
elect the men desired.
The delegates at Redmond,
knowing the feeling of their respec
tive precincts, did not desire to in
augurate any movement that would
endeavor to "hog" everything. All
Western Crook wants is just repre
sentation and that it is bound to
BUYS WELL-BRED. HORSES.
J. a. lid wards, of Hay Creek Sheep
Ranch, Purchases HnKlish Horses.
J. G. Kdwards, proprietor of the
large and well-known Hay Creek
sheep ranch, is in Kugland and has
recently purchased a fine Shire
stallion and several Shire marcs,
which he will ship to his ranch
about the middle of March. Mr.
Kdwards writes from Yorkshire,
Kng., and says in regard to his
"I wasso impressed with the Shire
horse since coming here that I de
cided to get some good ones out in
Oregon, and especially so alter see
ing what Shire has done in Wales
crossed with the little Welch mares.
Having the bone and sixe with
good action it seems to me that he
is exactly the horse we want in
Oregon to cross with our light bone
and light bodied mares."
WHAT OTHERS THINK.
(lood Words for Bend and Vicinity by
Ono Traveling: Through Here.
In a lengthy nrticle on Central
Oregon, published in Monday's Or
egouiiiii, Joseph Gaston has the fol
lowing tosav of Bend:
"Ifroln l'rincville to Bend is a de
lightful drive of 30 miles over the
finest wogon-road of its length in
Oregon. Over n level country, mid
a hard, smooth road, the team sped
along at the rate of seven miles an
hour. The many new and tasteful
cottages ami clearings in the bound
less sagebrush along the road show
that the country is being rapidly
settled in anticipation of the early
advent of the railroad. Until re
cently this country was considered
worthless. But the irrigation ca
nols running out from Betid will
put water Over half a million acres
of ri-h oleauie soil, practically lev
el, nr.d convert the seeming desert
1 '"to r. gHiVn for fruit, flowery
grain, grass, and all vegetable
crops, developing such wealth and
prosperity as no man can now fore
tell. "The new town of Bend, on the
Deschutes river, is fortunately lo
cated as to bid iair to become the
chief center of business, population,
and culture in this great Deschutes
valley Only two years old, it has
city waterworks, three fine hotels,
a bank and one of the best-edited
and newsy papers in the state, and
large and prosperous stores. All
the residences are new and hand
somely paintcll, and many of them
equal to anything in Kast Portland,
and they arc now erecting a public
school building equal to anything
in the state."

PLAN BIG EXTENSION

C0A1I-S FROM GOOD SOURCE
Bend Alan Receives Letter from Tygh
Valley F'rfend Which Adds to the
Long List of Rail Stories.
A report bearing t,he marks of
truthfulness, reached Bend this
week that the 6reat Southern rail
way company will extend its line
180 miles' southward before the'
snow flics next winter.
A former Bend citizen is now lo
cated in the Tygh Valley country.
He wrote to a friend here that men
connected with the Great Southern
were in Tygh Valley recently going
over the surveyed route for the ex
tension of that road. They told
the above story that it was the in
tention of the Great Southern com
pany to push construction as soon
as spring weather would permit,
and that 180 miles of new road to
the otith would be completed with
in a year. It has been previously
announced that this road will be
extended southward to Bend, and
undoubtedly will some day have a
line cast of the Cascades from the
Columbia river to San Francisco.
This report of a i8o-miIc exten
sion came from a reliable man, and
can be believed without reserve.
What the Surveyors Are Doing.
The Oregon Kastcrn surveying
crew are still camped on W. P.

crosses Dave Hill's land, skirts C.

W. P. Vandevert's east line for a
mile or more. They have surveyed
seven and a half miles south of
Vandevert's to a poiut on the south
side of Paulina creek and east of
the Silver Lake road about a quar
ter of a mile.
The general direction of the line
is due north and south.
