Still Drilling for Oil.
Dave Harnett was in town on
Monday, from his ranch near
Culver. He says they are drilling
steadily on his place for oil, the
drill Iwlng down about 280 feet on
last Saturday evening. He says
that there ate splendid indications
of oil, nud that he intends to sink
deep enough to lenrh more about
it. Lately they have been making
good headway, goings down as
much as 50 feet in one Hay, al
though on other days they did not
go mote than four feet, owing to
the hardness of the rock.
While the main Object of the
present prospecting' is to in
vestigate the oil prospects which
for many years have been known
to exist there, Mr. fturnett says
that he will feel quite V.'ell repaid
for the labor and expense if he cau
strike n good flow of artesian water.

WORKING ON ARNOLD DITCH.
It Is Expected to Have This Water
way Finished by Fall.
Work on the Arnold ditch has
been carried on diligently all sum
mer aud its promoters arc planning
to complete it some time this tall or
earlv winter. Duriiic most -of the
summer thev have had a crew of
20 men working otvthc ditch. Sev
cral rock ledges have been encoun
tercd which have delayed the com
pletion of the work later than was
at first cxnectcd. Iu one place it
was necessary to make a cut 17 feet
deep, most of this depth being
throuph rock. After the main ca
nal is finished laterals will be con
structed to cover all the land to be
watered bv this ditch
The Arnold ditch has been built
and is controlled by a co-operative
association, the owners of the land
to be irrigated being stockholders!
in the association. The land to be
irricatcd comprises 1,600 acres,
There are ;o shares, each share
possessing richt to water sufficient
to irrigate 12 acres,
Land under this ditch is being
improved quite rapidly, and the
sagebrush and junipers are giving
way to fields of grain and orchards!
Next year the Arnold ditch 5'cction
will be one of the best producers in
the Bend country.

A number of 'Bend men appeared
before the county court last Mon
day, which had met in its capacity
as a board of equalization. Hvcr
since the court house agitation,
which resulted in an injunction be
ing issued by Judge Bradshaw, it
has been know that property val
ues, especially timber claims, had
been about doubled by the asses
sor in his last assessment. The
Bend people appeared before the
board to see that justice was shown
them and that this increase iu
assessments was general over the
county. Little was accomplished,
however, as the assessor reported
that his lists were not complete.
He will undoubtedly ask for an ex
tension of time when the county
court meets next week. This will
be granted, and the court will
probably again convene as a board
of equalisation sometime the first of
Seme of the people from here re
port that there are great inequal
ities in the present assessment roll.
For example: stocks of merchandise
in Princville known to be fully twice
as large as some carried here in
Bend, arc assessed at half the
value of the Bend 'stocks. This
naturally arouses the indignation
of the taxpayer whose property is
assessed so greatly in excess of that
in other parts of the county.
The timber men present found
matters in a more favorable con
dition, except that timber in the
Blue .mountains was assessed at
S750 per 160 acres while that in
Western Crook was valued at
$1,000 They entered objections
to this, and were promised that the
assessments would be equalized.
They report that Judge Bell was
emphatic in his statements that it
was the board's desire that a fair
assessment on all property should
It was also announced that the
revised plans for the new court
house, which had been received
from the architect at Salem, would
be considered by the county court
at its meeting next week and steps
taken looking to the erection of
the building. If this is done and
the county court persists in its de
termination to build a court house,
Bend people announce that inequal
ities in the present assessment roll
will be attackedv and everyone,
whether in Priueville, Madras
Beud, Redmond or other parts of
the county, made to stand their
equal share of the tax burden.
They can see no justice iu unequal
assessments of property.
Those in attendance from Bend
were B. W. Lakin, E. F. Batten.
A. M. Drake, W. K. Guerin, jr
and C. H. McNie. Mr. Guerin
appeared before the board in be
half of Mr. Lakin, the Scanlon
Gipsoii and the Deschutes lumber
cdmpanies; also in behalf of his
soliciting new meuibera and 'tiiere ore 'many buds still to open.
