Too lilt; n I'rlco,
W. S. U'Reu, secretory of the
People's Power League, submits the
following reasons why the proposed
sale of the Barlow toll rond to the
state should be voted dawn. In n
tetter to The Bulletin he says:
"I would like to submit tome fact
concerning the proimsud solo of the Har

Do Women Wnnt to Vote?
If the women of Oregon thcnuielves
wnnted to vote there uilulit ho some ex
cuse for kUIiik them the Vl)ht. Hut,
nponrcutly the women do not wnut tills
privilege nud pay little attention to the
glowing spccvlicH made by women suf

That till in so Is plainly proved by
tunny recent Occurrence and the man

it It not necessary to dwell on the fact

that nn association of women with head,
quarter in Portland and brandies alt
over the mnte, have sent out circular let
ter asking the men of Oregon not to
mistake the clamor of femnle agitator
from distant state for the sentiment of
the women of Oregon. A more striking
nud convincing proof that the women
thcmsclvc do not want the burden of
the Iwllot forced upon them is found in
n recent dclxitc which took place in the
lnrgest church in Portland. At tills tie
Imte two preachers, the Rev, Whltcomb
Ilrougher and the Rev. Clarence True
Wilson, took opposite sides on the vom
uii suffrage question. The audience was
iviiiih).sc(1, by nctual count, of 400 wom
en and about 40 men,
At the close of the debate n vote was
tukcu on the question of woman suffrage
and the result stood 176 against it and
only 173 for It,
when it is considered that the suftrag
Uts had got out their crowd, that there
were very few men in the audience, and
that many of them refused to vote, the
result of the balloting is most signifi
cant. Why should the burdens and duties of
the ballot be forced upon the women of
this stHtc ngainst their wishes?

LOOKS LIKE A CRAFT
So Think the Taxpayers
of Crook County.
OBJfiCT TO NUW COURT HOUSE;
Petition with over 200 Signatures
Filed against the Move Will Ask
for n Temporary Injunction.
Signed by Oyer 200 Protestors.
We, the undersigned, citizens,
taxpayers and legal voter of Crook
county, Oregon, respectfully pro
test and remonstrate ngainst any
action of the county officials in let
ting the contract for the construc
tion of a new court house without
there first being a full expression
therefor by the taxpayers of said
county, and we nrc opposed p the
rsilrondiug throtigh of any such
measure without there being full
consideration and sanction by the
taxpayers of the county.
Steps have been taken to post
pone the letting of contracts for a
new court house at Prinevillc until
proper investigation nud discussion
of the question can be had. At the
meeting of delegates from Western
Crook precincts, held at Forest last
Monday, it was unanimously agreed
that the sentiment expressed in the
above protest, which had been
signed by over 300 citizens, was of
sufficient strcnr.th and was so far
representative of all parts of the
county as to demand vigorous ac
tion to delay, for a time at least,
what appears, to be a bold and well
planned attempt by the county
court to spend n large sum of the
people's money for n court house
when a majority of the taxpayers
arc opposed to such a building.
Therefore a careful scrutiny was
given those acts of the court bear
ing on the court house question and
several points found where such ac
tiou nppcarSj from the evidence on
hand, to be in violation of state law.
These can be briefly stated as fol
lows; 1st. Proper publication of notice
for bids not given.
snd. Building of court house
would incu,r debt by county court
in excess of statutory limit of $5,000.
3rd. Evident intention to in
some way evade the law by "bor
rowing" or transferring large sums
from school and road funds to the
general or county fund, thus mak
ing it available for court house pur
poses. Acting along these lines steps
were taken to secure a temporary
injunction against the present build
ing of a court house.
The news that the county court
was intending to let contracts for a
new coirt house nnd had kept such
intention carefully concealed from
the people spread over the country
with great rapidity when once dis
covered. In a short time steps.
were being taken to can a Halt to
such proceedings until n proper in
vestigation of the question could be
had. Mass meetings were held in
tunny precincts and delegates chosen
to a general meeting to be held at
Forest. Saturday evening Band
citizens chose as delegates A. M.
Drake and Attorneys Benson and
Wickham. These, accompanied by
A. L. Goodwillie, met at Forest
Monday to confer with delegates
from the other precincts. After a
thorough discussion of the question,
a petition praying for a temporary
injunction was prepared along the
lines ns above outlined and placed
in the hands of Attorney W, H.
Wilson of The Dalles. This peti
tion will be laid before Judge Brad
sliaw in the hope that the injunc
tion will be granted and precipitate
actiou by the comity court fore
stalled. There has been nothing for ninny
months that has so aroused the in
dignation of the people in general
as this latest move by the county
court a court which to say the
least is suspected by a large major
ity of the people to be under the in
fluence of a "ring" whose head
quarters are at Priueville. Even
Pripevillc men are objecting to the
methods pursued. They agree with
tlic'olller citizens that the people
sliotilu have been notified and kept
fully informed of all steps taken for
the building of a new court house
iSimmered down to iU plainest
terms, the universal expression of
the voters is that Prinevillc is afraid
of losing the county scat; a new
court house would help materially
Lto retain it there: it Was known
there would be vigorous objections
to the erection of such a building;
hence plans were quietly laid to let
'contracts, etc. before the people
could learn of their action and
lodge objections. The feeling is
very general that this latest move
is only additional evidence that the
county court is wholly and com
pletely dominated by the "Prine
MAKES BIG DEAL IN TIMBER
ti,m ACRES. OF YELLOW PINE SOLD
Bnd Men Instrumental In the Sale of
a Large Tract of Timber In Crook,
Lake and Klamath Counties.
One of the largest deals in tim
ber lands, a deal that will run up
close to half a million dollars, has
been closed this week by Bend men.
J. N Hunter and W. H. Staats,
acting as agents for a large number
of claim holders, have sold to John
E. Ryan 40,000 acres of the choic
est yellow pine timber that can be
found in Qrcgon. This fine tract
ot timber is located in Grook, Klam
ath and Lake counties. The price
at which the timber changed hands
ranged from $8 to $10 per acre.
For the last few months there has
been considerable actirity in Cen
tral Oregon timber, many buyers
having cruisers in the woods. This
has stimulated the price of timbered
land and there has been a gradual
rise in the figures at which choice
claims arp being sold. Messrs.
Hunter and Staats have kept in
touch with this upward trend and
have finally accomplished the sale
of this tract at a price very favor
able to their clients.
These two gentlemen are plan
ning to engage extensively in the
buying and selling of timber lauds.
ORQANIZE BALL TEAM.
Bend Enthusiasts Plan to Havo
Crack Team of Th,Ui Region.
Bend fans are getting the base
ball fever nnd this, week took pre
liminary steps to organize a team.
At a meeting held for the above
purpose, Nick Weidcr was chosen
captain and the ball set rolling 'to
fill the positions for the swiftest
team in the county. All Bend lacks
is a pitcher, and with a man secured
for that place it is believed as good
aleam can be organized as the fam
ous one of last year.
V T. W. gitnmcrmann was author
ized to get into communication with
"Charley Bilyeu, the man who aided
so materially to win fame for Bend's
team last year, and 'secure him if
possible. A man by the name of
Horton, who threw last season for
Stanford university, is with the Or
egon Eastern surveyors working
toward Bend and is anxious to play.
Horton is expected in Bend Satur
day and if he "makes good" will be
signed with the Bend team,
FOR BETTER COUNTY ROADS.
Campaign Started for Improvement
The county court has recently en
tered itito contracts for extensive
improvements on the county roads.
A short time ago a large order for
picks.shovels, scrapers, road plows
aud graders was placed with W. F.
King at Priueville, the complete
order amounting to something over
$200. A contract has also been
made with Dave Grimes whereby
Grimes and his fine 8-horse team
will spend the summer working on
the roads. A cook wagon will ac
company the crew of road workers.

WINS OYER REDMOND,
County Seat Placers De
feat tl?e Irrigators. '
VICTORS BY SPORE OF 8 TO 5
Sunday's Game at Redmond a Hard
Fought Contest Large Crowd 6h
Side Lines Witnesses Sport. '
Prineyille and Redmond for the
second time this season met on the
diamond at Redmond last Sunday
aud a hard fought contest was
waged. Prinevillc again proved
the victor and carried ofT the big
end of the score, 8 to 5. ;
At 2 o'clock, with the bleachers
and side lines well filled with en
thusiastic fans from Redmond,
Prinevillc, Laidlaw and Bend, the
word to "play ball" was given with
Princville to bat and Reed in thd
box, Weider behind the bat for
Rcdmoqd. From that time to the
end of the final put-out, excitement
ran high and some very good ball
playing was witnessed by the spec
tators. It was generally agreed that the
star playing was done by Stinson
for Prinevillc and Weider for Red
mond. Stinson played a No. 1
game at second, while Weidcr
caught a pretty game and did some
very effective stick work. The
first time up, with two men on
bases, Weider lined out a two bag
ger and scored the two men on
the bags, Good playing, however,
was not confined to any two men,
each team acquitting itself with
honor. Prineville's entire outfield
did excellent work.
Following is the line-up and
score by innings:

The crowd in attendance was so
large that Redmond could not ac
commodate it. People went hungry,
the hotels were crowded, and rooms,
at a premium. Blankets were
bought, borrowed or stolen and
many men bunked in the barns.
