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. Madras Pioneer.?" ,The railroad suiveying crews that have been working in the Bend country and the Upper Des chutes valley for the past two mouths, have finished their prelim inary lines and are about to move back to the Burns country, with the exception of the crew unocr en gineer Puck. Hcnd men who visited Buck's camp last week report that his crew ore running n line east from the Graham line south of Rostand. This line will be run through Christmas Lake valley to Wagontirc moun tain, which will take about six wteks' time. After reaching Wag ontirc, the crew will go to Ontario, will outfit for the winter and then go back over their line making final location. It is understood that last spring, before Buck had been ordered into the mountains, l,e had tun a preliminary line from the Snake river to Wagontirc. He will now connect this line with tjie Graham survey. Kngmecr C. J. Millar, whose crew has also been working in Odell pass in the Cascades, has gone to Burns. He will locate the line southeast of. thn,t place, anc savs he will work toward Crane Creek gap. Kngincer Shaw has finished the preliminary line from Burns to connect with the Graham Hue at Rosland, and will soon start with his crew for the Bums coun try. He will also do location work, surveying in that region" on the Oregon Kastern line across the state. These crews are all working for the Oregon Short Line. On the west side of the Cascades and in the Diamond Peak pass, the South ern Pacific has four crews 1t1der Rankin searching for the best pass lurougn tne mountains, v-unsiu-crable final Ideation work has been dqnc from Natrott toward this pass.' Thus the preliminary work on a line across the state is completed and the crews are beginning to locate the final Hue. Graham's crew has the preliminary line rim from Madras, tlirougu uenu ro Klamath Falls, while the Oregon Trunk line has a survey from the mouth of the Deschutes up the river to Madras with crews work ing on construction. This covers Central and Eastern Oregon "pretty well with survey stakes. Tile next step will be the placing of ties and rails. also donations of books, money, etc. from any who desire to give. It is planned to establish a museum and exhibit in the room. Any one hav ing anything of a peculiar nature, such as strange rocks, shells, furs, woods, etc., etc., native to tuis re gion, SIjouiu donate incni 10 mc association and help to make the museum ,an interesting one and truly representative of the upper Deschutes Valley. It is also greatly desired that a permanent exhibit of grasses, grains, fruits, vegetables, etc , etc. be established in this rdom where strangers passing through the town can see thfctn and be con vinced of the great fertility of: Deschutes valley soil. Ranchers arc urged tosavc samples and bring them into town. Or, if anyone has anything to donate, if they will make it known to the trustees, ar rangements will be made to get it and bring it to the room. It should be remembered that the reading room is free and open to the public. It is desired that everyone feel free to use it. Chairs and tables will be pro vided and it is hoped that many will avail themselves of this oppor tunity to obtain good reading at no expense. The trustees have decided on a program of expansion and growth for this institution and greatly de sire the hearty support aud co-operation of everybody.

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.

McGillvray was circulating a petition among Bend people Wednesday, asking that Beud school district No. 12 be divided and a new district established in the McGillvray Arnold - Ferguson re gion about six miles southeast of town. The petition was signed by many. The new district, if established, will have the following boundaries: Commencing at southeast corner of S. 12, T; iS, R. 13, thence due west to line between ranges 1 1 and 12; thence south to souiuwesi cor ner of S. iS, T. 19, R. 12; thence east to southeast corner S. 13, T. 19, R- 13; thence uor'th to place of beginning. ! There are 15 children, of, -school age now living in the proposed dis trict, aud their parents are of the opinion that a school is needed nearer to their homes than is the Bend school. Superintendent Din widdle has promised to establish the district if the consent of Beud people cau be obtained Wild Plant Produces 6i Blossoms.

A wild sunflower plant has put out a number of branches froiu. the parent stalk aud each brau'eh is loaded with blossoms. i6k hi all. 1 bloom 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 October. 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 be made. 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 own interests. are soliciting new meuibera and 'tiiere ore 'many buds still to open. Gives $10,000. William W. Brown, a wealthy sheep and horse raiser of Paulina, Crook county, has recently made a gift of $10,000 to the Pendleton academy for building a boys' dor mi$ry and manual training de partment.
