Many Anxious for Claims
in the Bend Country.
BUYERS ARK NOW ACTIVE
Recent Transfer of Holdings Throws
a Large Volume of liuslness Into
the Bend Uank.
I:or several weeks there has been
a great demand among local people
for claims still open to entry. Lo
cators have been carefully examin
ing plats and scouring the timber
in an endeavor to satisfy the call for
claims. Quarter sections with the
timber so scarce on them that they
would not have been considered
heretofore, are now being gobbled
up with avidity.
The rush ot people into the Silver
Lake country during the last two
weeks, with the expectation of fil
ing on timber claims about to be
thrown open to entry, only empha
sizes the impetus that has been giv
en to the acquiring of claims, due
to the oix;ratioii of timber buyers iu
the upj)cr Deschutes country since
lor several years there has been
a moderate demand for claims by
purchasers, but nothing to equal
the present demand. Last winter
H W Lnkiu of Minnesota came to
Ikud and put a larirc crew of cruis
ers at work hereabouts. He boon
opened an office and began the pur
chase of timber lands. A few
mouths later the Scaulon-Gipon
Lumber Company of Minneapolis
sent a representative here, Mr. C.
II. McNie, who opened an office,
put cruisers at work, and also began
buying timber. This latter firm al
ready had large holdings near Itend.
This transfer of timber lands has
thrown quite a large volume of bus
iness to the Central Oregon Bank
ing & Trust Co. of Bend. Cashier
F. O. Minor stated this week that
when the deeds are surrendered and
the deal closed 011 those trausfeis
now pending, the amount oi the
sale transacted through the local
bank by Mr. Lnkiu will approximate
very closely a half million dollars.
Mr. McNte has been delayed con
siderably by the illness of his head
cruiser and the sum total of these
trausUts will undoubtedly be much
increased when he gets fairly into
the local market. This business has
not yet reached the limit by far, as
there is yet much timber held by in
dividuals, and both Messrs. I.akin
and McNie are buyingclaims when
ever they can be secured at satis
factory prices. The pi ices now of
fered range from $1,200 to $1,800.
PINDS PLENTY OP WATER.
Mnu Near Madras Strikes nn Abun
dant Supply nt Depth of 350 I'cet.
Dave Burnett lias struck a Hue
flow of water iu the well which he
was having drilled by Frank Love
lund on his place about eight miles
south of Madras, says the Pioneer.
The water was found at a depth of
about 350 feet, and there is appar
ently an inexhaustible supply of it.
On Monday they attempted to
pump the well dry, taking out an
1 8-foot bucket of water every two
minutes during a period of two and
three-quarters hours, and there was
no apparent decrease iu the amount
of water iu the well.
When Mr. Barnett began on this
well a mouth or more ago, jt was
for the double purpose of trying to
get water and also following up an
oil prospect which had been struck
in that neighborhood several years
ago, Most ot our readers are lauiu-
mr with the story of the mild oil
excitement created about two years
ago by the discovery of strong evi
dences of petroleum iu a well ou the
Barnett place, and u was lor the
purpose of further prospecting that
Mr. Barnett began to drill tuts new
well. At a depth of about 250 feet
there were strong indications of pe
troleum iu the new hole which was
being drilled, but below that depth
they encountered a red granite for
mation, when the indications of oil
ceased. Mr. Barnett is quite
pleased at his success iu securing
water, which iu that district is al
most if not quite as valuable as an
oil well would be. For 23 years he
has hauled all of the water used on
his ranch, and it is a great relief at
last to have plenty of water for all
purposes right at the ranch. And,
incidentally, the value of hir. ranch
is greatly increased.
The well on the Barnett place was
drilled with Frank Lovclaud's new
drilling outfit, which is one of the
best drilling machines ever brought
into this section. The drill alone
weighs about 1,500 pound, and the
machine has a capacity of 1,200
feet. Since Mr. Barnett has dem
onstrated the possibility oi getting
water within a reasonable distance,
it is likely that Mr. Loveland will
have about all he can do with his
machine. He is next going to drill
for the Harveys on the Little Plains
and he expects to have his machine
set up and read to begin drilling
there by the first of next week.
MADE GOOD SHOWINQ.
Exhibits from Crook County Rank w Ith
the Ucst at Irrigation Congress.
II. F. Jones of Redmond, presi
dent of the D I. & P. Settlers' Asso
ciation, returned last week from
the National Irrigation Congress at
Boise. Speaking of Crook county's
exhibit at Boise, he said: "As
crooK and .Mauieur counties were
the only two exhibits from Oregon,
they combined and took first prize
in grasses and grams. As a matter
of fact we did not know that prizes
were to be offered or wc could have
fixed up an exhibit that would
have crowded the best of them for
the $500 silver cup offered for the
best general display. Wc didn't
know it, though, so otily took
along some grains to show what
we could raise over here. We had
the heaviest wheat, oats, barley,
rye, etc., exhibited by anv of the
states. This we consider a great
showing for Crook county, when
you consider wc had Utah, Mou
tana, Idaho, Nevada and Washing
ton to compete with. The grain
came from the Laidiaw country
and was exhibited by the Laidiaw
Development League, represented
by J. X. Ii. Gerking and IS. B.
BUYS HOOD RIVER LAND.
Ucnd Man Invests In 80 Acres and
Will Plant Orchard.
Dr. W. S. Nichol returned from
Hood River Tuesday noon, where
he went to investigate laud in that
vicinity. He was well pleased with
an offer made him and purchased
So acres about eight miles from
Hood River. Fifteen acres of this
laud is cleared and the balance lus
a growth of small timber on it. Sev
eral acres of this lie will have cleared
at once and planted to Snitzenberg
and Yellow Newtown apples.
I lie doctor has evidently got hold
of a good deal. Judging from the
present price of Hood River or
chards he figures that wheu the
land is cleared and planted to trees,
it will easily be worth $300 au acre.
When the orchard is bearing it will
probably sell for f 500 an acre. The
doctor has no intention of leaving
lieud, and invests 111 tuts laud sim
ply for speculation.
J. II. Miller, who accompanied
Dr. Nichol, did not invest at Hood

Title to Water Power Site
A THREE-CORNIiRnD EIGHT
A Third Party Appears In the Case of
Miss Carrie Olson vs. the North
cm Pacific Railway Co.
If you want to keep iu touch with
the development of this great Des
chutes valley, READ the Bulletin,
The contest of Carrie Olson vs.
The Northern Pacific Railroad Com-
pany, in which title to a valuable
water power site on the Deschutes
river eight miles sotitti of Bend is
involved, has taken on considerable
additional interest during the past
week by the injection of a third in
terested party in the contest. This
third party is Lcaudcr Dillon, a
pioneer setttler of this region.
To get the facts clearly in mind
it will be well to relate a little his
tory and review recent develop
ments in this case. It will be re
membered that in January, roos.
Miss Olson established residence on
this land and in May applied at The
Dalles land office to file on it as a
homestead. This was refused be
cause the land was un surveyed. A
few weeks later, the Northern
Pacific company placed Mount
Rainier scrip on this same quarter
section. It was accepted because
the law decreed that Mount Rainier
scrip could be placed on unsur
veyed laud. Thereupon Miss Olson
brought contest against the railway
company, basing her right to the
land on the plea of a squatters'
claim. The hearing of the con
test began on August 17.
At the opentug of the contes,
Attorney W. E. Guerin appeared
in behalf of Lennder Dillon and
prayed the privilege of introducing
evidence and cross-examining wit
nesses to prove Dillon's claim to
the north So acres of the quarter
section contested, the most valuable
part of the laud. Dillon's claim
consisted in the alleged fact that he
had homesteaded the north 80 acres
during the years 1SS6-91. Attor
ney Guerin's plea was ruled out by
Commissioner Ellis on the grounds
that Dillon was not a party to the
contest on record.
At the final hearing at The
Dalles, Dillon again appeared by his
attorney, Attorney John Gavin,
and presented his claims for a hear
ing. Miss Olson was represented
by Attorney Myers, and the North
ern Pacific by Attorney Scobey of
Portland. The ruling of Mr. Ellis
was sustained, but it was agreed that
at a hearing to be set before Com
missioner Ellis ou Sept. 14, Dillon
should introduce evidence to sub
stantiate his claim, while the other
parties to the contest could cross
examiue his witnesses and intro
duce rebuttal testimony. Conse
quently the case was opened last
Friday with Attorney Wickham ot
Bend appearing for Dilbu, the
other two parties represented by
their former attorneys.
In the evidence introduced it wa
shown that Dillon came to this region
iu 18S5 from Tulare county, Calif., look
ing for a good location for a stock ranch
He was told of this laud but was informed
thnt "Uncle John," Sisetnore had '
It feuced. Upon consulting with Sise
more he was told to go ahead and take
the land if he wanted to. Consequently
he filed homestead entry ami later nmdV,
