Many Important Improve
incuts Are Planned.
BUILi) ELECTING LIGHT PLANT
New Owner of Townslto Will Inaiig-
urnlo Developments that Menu
Much to Ucnd nnd Vicinity.'
The new owners of the townsitc
arc already planning developments
(or Demi niul vicinity. One. of the
first things to be undertaken will
lie to furnish He nil with a better
water system and an electric light
plant. The syndicate will soon
make 11 proposition to the city
whereby the city may takeover the
water plant and convert it into n
gravity system. This can be
done by piping the water 7rom a
txjint on the river south of town,
probablv in the vicinity of the
D. I. & P. Coa hcadgatc,
and will be n very cheap
system to operate after it was in
sulted. This was the original
plans of the Rend Water, Light &
Power Co., and it was their inten
tion to put in a gravity system at
some future date.
Clectrlc Lights (or Bend.
The present owners of the town,
site believe that Bend should have
such a water system, a system that
would be the equal of any in the
state. They arc also convinced
that Dend should step forward to a
position fully abreast of the times
and consequently needs an clect,rip
lighting plant to light its streets
and do away with the old fashioned
oil lamp in the residences. Messrs.
Sawhill and Steidl and the other
members of the syndicate also arc
convinced that a city's water and
light plant should be owned and
operated by the city. For that
reason they are willing to surrender
the water and light rights which
tncy secured wiicu tuey tool: over
Mr. Drake's holdings, ami let the
city operate these two features that
exert so great on influence ou the
health, comfort nnd convenience oi
However, if the citizens do not
care at the present to undertake
the building and management of
water and light plants, the present
owners will themselves very soon
begin work on the above'mcntloned
mprovciuents. Mr. Sawhill stands
sponsor for this statement, which
he made to The Bulletin during the
past week. Thus Dend is assured
of an electric lighting ystcm in the
Will Uulld Largo Warehouse.
Another improvement and a busi
ness that will be of great benefit to
Bend and a large part of Central
Oregon will be the building of a
large warehouse nt Dend. This
huge building will always be sup
plied with an immensestockof all the
staple merchandise used through
out Central Oregon, Merchants
and the large stockmen can then
come here to purchase their mer
chandise. It is thus intended to
make Betid one-oi the chief distri
buting points for a large section of
It may be asked wherein will
there be any benefit from such au
arrangement inasmuch as the
goods wiil still have to be hauled
in by wngou, as uow? The reply
is that all goods such as wires,
nails, staples, saws, axes, tools of
various kiuds, etc., etc. can be
bought in carload lots and thus
purchased at n lower rate. Being
shipicd in carload lots the freight
rates will be less, as also will be
the charge for freighting it from
the railroad, as this work could
then be done under contract. The
warehouse business should prove n
very valuable one to this whole
section and a convenience to mer
chants and traders for miles around.
Storage for Hay and Oruln.
1 ne warcnousc plans also con
template large storage rooms whore
hay nnd grain can be stored. A
buyer can take advantage of the
market when it is low, purchase his
feed and then, for a small charge to
cover insurance and storage, store
the feed until needed. This should
likewise prove .1 great convenience.
Additions to the Townslte.
Additions to the townsite will
soon be platted that will include
much of what is now the outlying
miiij contiguous to JJcnci. Jt
thus seen that proper steps will be
taken for a steady growth and de
velopment at Bend.

J. I. West Makes Flno Shotting vlth
A visit to the J. I. West garden
will well repay anyone for the time
spent. You will come away more
convinced than ever that many var
ieties of fruit will grow successfully
in the Bend country, because there
you will see it demonstrated.
Mr. West has a strawberry patch
that will yield an excellent crop
this season. He already has picked
many quarts .and the plants are
still loaded with berries in all the
stages of development. The berries
when mature are large, have a good
color, arc sweet and luscious. In
fact they excel by long odds the
famous Hood River berries that nrc
being shipped into Bend.
He also has a number of small
gooseberry bushes small only in
sire, not in bearing qualities.
They ore literally loaded with fruit.
The load of fruit weiirhts each
branch down to the ground and
upon liitiug the brauches up and
turning them back you nrc sur
prized to see almost a solid taws of
large fine berries from the tip to
the base of the branch. The yield
can be beaten in uo country. The
currants are likewise bearing well
and yield a large, fine berry.
T.ogan aud blackberry bushes
show fine crowth but are too young
to yield much of a crop. Apple,
cherry, plum, aud peach trees show
a wonderful growth, but likewise
have not yet reached the bearing
One thing that especially attracts
ones attention in the Bend country,
is the exceedingly Lealthy appear
ance of nil fruit trees, bushcsv and
vines. They make a remarkable
growth, the foliage has a rich green
color, and there is no trace of scab,
scale or disease.

Oregon ilastern Crews Are Again nt
Work liast of Natron.
A crew of eight Southern Pacific
surveyor left Kukciic for Hazel
Dell to resume work on the survey
for the Oregon Eastern rmlvvay,
which is the name of the proposed
extension from Natron across the
state to Klamath Palls Engineer
Carl Rankin, in charge of the work,
is expected here on any train antL
he will take with him another
pirty. It is expected that forty or
fifty men will be nt work on the
survey within a week or two It
will bV remembered that the whole
force was laid off during the past
winter, and it was thought by
many that the project had been
temporarily abandoned, but the
reason given was that the roads
and trails had. become impassable
and it was impossible to transport
uppiies over tucm, necessitating:
the shutting down 01 work unM
dry weather came. The surveyors
say that they expect to be employed
at the work all summer. A num
ber of Eugene men will be in thu
cvcral parties. Eugene Guard.

Fine Supply Struck at Depth of -400
Feet oa the W. F. Magill Ranch.
The water problem on Aecncv
Plains was solved last week whea
a good supply of pure, cold water
was struck at a depth of .100 feet in
the well which was being sunk on
on the V. F. Magill ranch,. The
drill had reached a depth of 400
feet and was sinking a, a, soft
clay formation when water
was first encountered, and when
abandoned for the evening, water
was gradually rising in the drilled
hole. Next morning it stood at a
depth of 30 feet in the well when
drilling was resumed.
It was decided, however, in smtc
of this fine showing, to sink through
tnesott formation, and 20 feet was
drilled during the day, by which
time the water had risen toa heighth
of 50 feet in the well. The water
is clear, cold and palatable, and the
supply is believed to be practically
The Madras Pioneer says that
the finding of water caused great
joy among the ranchers. Every
body is entbusl-utic. It had beeq
agreed that when water was struck
the whistle would be sounded and
when drilling was restitried the

kept going continually, carrying the
glad news throughout the entire
