Ail Interesting meeting of the
llcuil ConimcrcUl Club wns held
Inst Tuesday evening at which con
siderable business of importance
A-as transacted. The firnt that
claimed the attention of the club
win the adoption of a schedule of
fees aud dues. The initiation fee
va finally set at 2 50 and dues at
50 cents pa mouth.
Atvn former meeting, five trustees
of the organization had been chos
en, with it undecided whether to
have seven or nine members in this
"boirtd. At this meeting it was de
cided to limit the number to seven,
ami the board of trustees were
authorized to choose from their
number a president, vice-president,
secretary and treasurer to act as the
officers of the club. John Steidl
was unanimously chosen as one of
the trustees, and Dr. Coo and R. U.
Mutrig were nominated for the last
or seventh member. A poll of 'the
meeting gave Dr. Coc 11 votes,
Mr. Mutzig 3. The board of trus
tees is composed of John Steidl,
J. II. Wcnandy, C. I). Brown,
Hugh O'Kanc. Dr. U. C. Coc,
J. H. Sawhill. Chas. D. Rowc.
The proposition of asking the
city council to pass nn ordinance
placing a license on all businesses
in llcud was then discussed. Such
a license would le a graduated one
and placed nt different amounts for
the various classes of busine. The
object would be to protect the
merchants and other regular biisi
hcm concerns from the coinjMstitiou
of curbstone dealers and street
hawkers. It wus finally ordered
that the question be laid ou the
table until the next meeting and
that n committee of three be ap
pointed to interview the business
men and secure their opinion ns to
the advisability of such an ordi
nance. Chas. D. lirowu, J. K.
Sawhill and Chas. I). Rowc were
nniminted as this committee.
Another committee consisting ot
Hugh O'Knue. J. 11. Wcnandy
and A. II. Grant was appointed to
investigate and report at the next
meeting on some comprehensive
plan by which the streets and alleys
may be kept twrmatictitly clean,
and also for the opening of streets
by the cutting out of trees, removal
of rock piles, etc., etc.
During the evening, Mr. Jesse I.
Stearns of Portland, who is spend
ing several weeks in llcud, was
culled upon to address the meeting.
lie responded with a pleasing ad
dress of a few minutes mi which he
emphasized the importance of such
an organization as a commercial
club to any town. He pointed out
how the club could aid in keeping
the city clean and help in making
it an attractive resideucecity by in
culcating into the citizenship, by
precept and example, i spirit of
civic pride and u desire to build a
city of clean streets and alleys,
pretty lawns ntul pleasant homes.
Another feature of his addiess was
that the club should be n busy ad
vertising bureau and constantly
send throughout the country infor
mation ns to the advantages of this
section. lie said liend'.s natural
advantages were great; that with its
timber to the west, with its farm
itig lauds to the east, and with its
other resources he expected to see
Ileud the Spokane of eastern Ore
gon. Naturally the, thought that held
the club's closest attention was Mr.
Stent ns' remarks regarding thejail
road question.' He stated emphat
ically that front conversations he
had had with Mr. Stanley, who was
with the Harriman txirty, he f -It
confident that actual construction
would be started within six months
on n road into lleud. He said that
Mr. Buschke, chief engineer for the
O. It. He N., had lcen heard to re
mark 011 his recent trip that a roml
built into this section would have
more tonnage than it could handle.
Mr. Stearns' remarks Were listened
lo with close attention.
Mr. Drake was then called upon
and responded briefly, stating that
thc-dean condition of Dead's streets
made a very favorable Impression
ou the Ilnrrimau officials when here
and that it brought out favorable
comment from them. The burden
of his remarks, however, was an
argument pleading for tic united
support of everyone for oil and ev
cry move looking to the country's
and city's development. He said
it was not possible or wise that the
public should always know the en
tirc .plans of those men who were
the leaders in the development ol
any section, but asked that every
one supirart those who arc so en
gaged here, trusting that the plans
would be for the best interests of

A. IS. listebenet Peels Hand of Law for
Selling Liquor to Minors.
At a special meeting of the city
council last week Thursday night,
the liquor license of A. B.Kstcbenet
was revoked for the reason that
certain parties had entered com
plaint that they had seen liquor
sold to minors over Hstcbcnct's bar
These parties arc so positivcNjf the
truthfulness of their statements that
they ate ready to take oath to that
cflect, one of them remarking that
lie had seen liquor sold to not
only one but to several minors in
the Kstcbcnct saloon. However
that may be, it is well known that
two or three of llend's young men
who have not yet reached their ma
jority were hopelessly drunk one
night last week, as were also some
of the Prineville lads when they
played their first gaipe of lwll here.
Strong suspicion rested on Mr
Kstebciict's saloon and consequent
ly the council revoked his license
and the saloon was closed.
Mr. listebenet stated to The Bul
letin that if liquor had been sold lo
minors, it was sold by his bar tender
and not to Kstcbenet's knowledge.
He also claimed that liquor was
-ftcti bought by adults and given to
boys. He is uovvtirculating a pe
tition to be presented to the council
asking that body to restore his
license. It is receiving quite a few
A Had Accident.
Chris Bolstcnd, who was work

Jr., met with n very painful acci

jump from one wagon to another
but miscalculated lite distance ntul
his left log was caught in one of
tin! wheels. Two or three revolu
tions were made before the wagon
could be stopped. When Ilolstcad
was dually extricated the bones of
his leg were found protruding
through the flesh. Dr. Rosenberg
was called and reduced the com

I.. H. Gray, one of the Seattle
capitalists who visited Bend last
week1 in the Nelson-Gregory party
to look over the country that the
Oregon Trunk Line would tap if

he says that the Oregon Trunk
Line will certainly be built and will
be built independently of cither
