IS PLAINLY A GRAFT
New CotTrt House Will Call
for Heavier Taxes.
COUNTY COUfT HLGS ANSWER
Auks Mint Temporary Injunction Be
Dissolved -The Sclicmo Shown In
((ft True t.lfiiit.
That the proposed new court
house cannot be built with the
money now on hand nnd that there
is a deep laid schcuie to load a
heavier burden on the taxpayer
has at last been shown by the
county court. The game to saddle
this tax on the people in order to
glorify Princville at the county's
expense has been a game of secrecy
and deceit from start to finish, but
like all things conceived and born
in the slime of darkness and
treachery, its true nature has been
shown. Its puiposc will be speedily
The county court has filed an
answer to the injunction served
against them last week prohibiting
the letting of contracts for a court
house. The gist of the answer is
contained in the statements that the
court will not incur indebtedness to
exceed statutory limit of $5,000;
that cost of court house will not ex
ceed moneys on hnnd; that the tax
levy will not be increased, but
How the court proposes to do all
this without a juggling of moneys
and funds can not be figured out.
First, they propose to incur no
debt, whatever. They state that
there is now in the general fund
$18,867, with $4,500 still to be
collected. Original plans contem
plated at least a $40,000, building.
How can that be built without
taxation for that purpose? If the
geueinl fund is expended for a new
court house how will the county's
expenses for the remainder of the
year be met? This sum has been
raised for the running expenses of
the county. If it is not needed
therefor but can be spent for a court
house, then the tax levy should
have been reduced, when so large
a majority of the voters object to a
If, as the answer states, a court
house can be built and also the tax
levy lowered, then why can it not
be lowered still more if that $40,000
is not spent? Remember the people
in general do not want a new build
iug. The proper thing to do would
be to lower the levy.
The answer also states that con
tracts will be let nnd the foundation
built with money on hand. Then
the superstructure will be built
when the money is available. This
evidently is a sudden change in
plans as the call for bids asks for
the "erection and completion" of a
building. If the mouey is not now
on hand to complete the building,
how cau it be raised except through
taxation a policy which the people
at present are wholly opposed to?
I his statement to complete the
building when funds are available,
coupled with certain statements of
the assessor on his recent visit to
Bend, lets the cat out of the bag
aim snows mat tuc wnoie game is
one of subterfuge and deceit. The
nssessed value of property, particu
larly timber lands, is being almost
doubled. The assessor excused
this with the promise that the levy
would bo lowered. The game is to
double the assessed value of a man's
property and fool him into satis
faction by lowering the .levy a mill
or two, thus deceiving him into the
beliet that his tax is being lowered.
Just to explain how it works, tak
ing per cents instead of mills for
exatnnle: A tax of five ner cent on
$500 would be $25; double the pro
perty aim lower tue. per cent,(or
levy) then the tax ou $1,000 at four
per cent would be. .$40, This is
practically what is being done ibis
year. Bend taxpayers are being
told that the levy will be loweretl,
but in the meantime the assessed
value of their property is being
I hus it is clearly :cn that the
game is to throw a large surphis,.
into tlie county treasury bv doubl
ing the assessed value. This is
how the money will be bled from'
the people chiefly from those who
hold timber in Western Crook, a
section of the county that does not
want a new court house in view of
the fact that a division of the county
Railroad development throutrh
Western and Southern Crook makes
it practically sure that the county
will be divided. The demand that
the county seat be taken away from
Princville is being greatly strength
ened by this late action by the court.
V.UH3CI vuuvc iiiinu.s, iiowevcr, ore
advising that since Princville will
undoubtedly be left as the logi
cal county seat of one of the new
counties that rash and hasty action
should not be taken.
The whole game has been shown
in its true light, a game to build an
expensive court house for Priuc
ville's glory at the expense of the

Bend's New Ball Team Is Expected to
Capture Big Purse.
Arrangements for a No. : ball
team in Bend arc about completed
Word was received from Charley
Bilycu that he would fill his old
position at the pitcher's plate. He
is now at Klamath Falls and is ex
pected in Bend in a few days. R.
A. Young, the draughtsman with
Chief Waggoner of the Oregon
Eastern surveyors, now stationed at
Bend, is an old-time catcher, and
will give good service behind the
bat. He has played with Salt Lake
City in the Utah state league. Hor
ton, with the surveyors working
this way from Burns, will also give
a good account of himself on first
base. He played that position last
year with the Stanford university
team. Charles' Reed, who is play
ing now with the Redmond team,
may also sign with Bend. H. E
Smith, who has recently come to
Bend and is working at P. B. D.
Co.'s saw-mill, i? also an able man
on the diamond, his regular posi
tion being at first. These, with
the local men available, will makea
team that is cure to win many a
victory before the season ends.
Princville will give a baseball
tournament as a feature of their
July Fourth celebration, and the
Bend team expects to walk away
with their share of the purses. The
first purse of $250 will go to the
team winning a majority of games;
$150 to the second, and $50 to the
third. Teams from Antelope, Mad
ras, The Dalles, Redmond and
Bend will compete.
With Bilyeu in the box and
Young stopping the sphere behind
the bat, local fans are betting that
Bend will gobble onto that $250

very pleasant ttnd profitable meet
ings, one at Laidlaw, the other at
Redmond. It was recently learned
that the governor and state land
board would soon be taking a trip
through this part of the state and
the association immediately began to
arrange plans to invite these
officials here to meet the settlers at
their third meeting. This was.
desired as many settlers on ditch

board and discuss certain questions
relative to state land law. Bend
business men have been diligently
at work during the week getting
everything in readiness to extend
the glad and welcoming hand to.
every visitor to the town. Tom
Triplettand his crew of brother
fishermen have been tempting the
wary trout to bite and they have
met with great success. They

other good things will help to mako
