the council got together nnd had
mi informal discussion of this busi
ness. It wns determined to first
secure a contract from the company
binding it to turn over its property
at a staled figure, nnd then to go
ahead with further necessary steps
Accoidiug to the specifications
in the chnrtcr under which the city
of Bend was incorporated, the city
is bonded nearly to the limit. If it
nurchascs the w titer si stem, it will
be necessary to amend the charter
allowing the city to do so. Alder
mnn Benson was instructed to take
up this matter of amending the
charter with City Attorney Kav
auatigh of Portland, who recently
had in clrnrge the (unending of
rorllfiud s charter tor like purees
Attorney Kavnutuigh agrees, for a
consideration of $250, to draw an
amendment to Mend's charter which
will allow the city to incur an nd
dltiona! bonded indebtedness; also
to arrange for submission to the
jx-oj)Ic the question of whether or
not Iwnds shall be issued to cover
the expense of taking ocr the wat

in amending the charter, they

Bond of Airs. P. C. Row Ice Is Raised
from $.100 to $000.
On account of a rumor which
staled that Mrs. Is C. Rowlee had
said she would jump her bonds and
leave for pastures new and tccn,
Judge Frazer of the circuit court at
Portland last week Friday ordered
her bail increased from stoo to
$600. The custody of the child,
whom Mrs. Kowlec nnd Mrs. Tom-
liu both claim as their own, is still
undetermined and the boy is in the
care of the Hoys' and Girls' Aid
Society of Portland.
In this matter of who owns the
child, in the evidence of the prosecu
tion, which is endeavoring to es
tablish that Sallie Tonilin is the
mother of the loy, it was argued
that Mrs. Howlec is not n fit woman
to have the custody of the child,
inasmuch as she hns been an in
mate of-sevcral houses or disrepute
in the North Ivnd in Portland. The

COYOTES LIKE MELONS.
They Feast on the Luscious Fruit In
the Aladras Country.
G. L. Pax ton was in town last
Saturday with a new coyolc story,
for the truth of which he vouches,
lie says that species of the prairie
wolf has deyclopod a taste for the
luscious watermelons grown in this
section the kind that took the
prize at the Redmond fair last year,
over irrigation-grown watermelons
nnd that they make nightly raids
on the melon patches in the locality
111 which he lives, si:: miles north
of Madras. In developing the taste
for watermelons, the coyote has also
acquired the accomplishment of be
ing able to tell unerringly the state
of a melon's maturity, plucking
only the ripe ones. This accom
plishment, it may lc added for Mr.
raxton s turiuer cniigntutimcnt, is
not possessed by any branch of the
human family except the Georgia
nigger, with whom it is intuitiou.

said to plnck the ripe melon, break
it, and in most approved style scoop
out the luscious red meat from with

both biped and quadruped. It is a
new stunt for the coyote, and
sheep men and chicken raisers
should investigate it, with the view
of encouraging the vegetarian taste

H. II. Harritnan, tha man who
stands at the head of the railroad
world today and the man whom
Central Oregon is watching with
such keen interest to learn, if possi
ble, when he will supply us with
railroad transportation, has visited
Dcnd on his trip through this sec
tionofthc state from Klamath to
Shaniko. He has come and gone,
meeting the people and talking
quite freely, praising the country
and the climate, enjoying our scen
ery and our sunshine, but saying
very little definitely regarding a
railroad. One thing of which there
is no doubt, however, is that Mr.
Harritnan was very favorably im
pressed with Central Oregon.
While Mr. Harritnan said very
little regarding railroad mattery,
yet information leaked out from one
close to him that is of great inter
est to this section. The Ilttlletin
has it from a most reliable source
that this trip of Harrinian was not
to determine the advisability of ex
tending the Corvallis & Hasteru
and building the Natron-KIarnath
line, as was generally supposed.
That question had been fully set
tled, and those two lines will pos
Uively be built. The only matter
now to be determined is which
route shall constitute the trunk
line from Portland to California.
The Harriraan party reached
Bend about 10 o'clock last Friday
evening hi their three automobiles.
As the guests of Mr. Stanley and
Mr. Stearns, of the D. I. & P. Co ,
they stopped nt the Club houses.
Those composing the party were
Mr. Harritnan and two young sons,
Edward Roland and W. A ; Col.
Wm. II. Holabird of Los Augeles;
Dr. W. G. Lylej W. O. Hill. Mr.
Harriman's secretary; J. A. Taylor,
the boys's tutor: J. P. O'Brien of
Portland, general manager of the
Hurriman lines in the Northwest;
and F. S. Stanley, general manager
of the D. I. & P. Co.
Mr. Harriman's stay in Bend was
of a very informal nature. Satur
day morning he wandered about the
streets meeting different citizens,
and chatting sociably with them.
He expressed himself as well
pleased with his trip, said we had a
fine and great country capable of n
great development, but said prac
tically nothing regarding railroad
About 3 o'clock Saturday after
nooti the party divided, Mr. Harri
tnan, Mr. O'Btieu, Mr. Stanley and
"Mr. Hill, leaving for Prineville,
while the other members of the
party left for Sisters to hunt bertr.
I)r. Coe and other local sportsmen
had been telling the two Harritnan
boys and Dr. Lyle about the excel
lent bear hunting hereabouts, and
as they were out for that sort of
sport, arrangements were made
whereby they should spend a few
more days in the mountains, while
Mr. Harritnan proceeded to Port
laud. The result of the hunt is told
At Prineville Mr, Ilorrttnan met
a few of the citizens and talked to
them a few minutes. The gist of
his remarks there are contained iu
the following statement:
"I have Riven out no information nor
statements 011 this trip concerning rail
road matters, I will tay, however, that
had not the money market been so
stringent nt it has beeu in recent months
a railroad would now l under construc
tion into Central Oregon. When the un
favorable conditions of the money mar
ket arc changed, the prospect will Ixj
bright for Immediate arttor. here '
He left nrincvilte at 9 o'clock
Sunday morning and reached Port
land late Sunday uight. At Port
land he gave quite n lengthy inter
view to the Orcgoniau, praising
Central Oregon in enthusiastic
terms. He said in part regarding
the construction of a railroad: '
"I have traveled a iivl many mile
and have seen muoh which has a learlni;
on construction of a road into that part
of the country. There teems to I won
derful possibilities for irrigation In omc
portions of the state, and there are al.o
numerous ureas uiai promise wc'i wrin
"K is a great country and suteeptiM'
to development on an entensive scale
There are a great ma.ny things lobe con
sidered before we could definitely an
nounce any plans for building a railroarl
into that part of the country.
"Our surveyors are workfngon several
different routes, and the rr.sutts.of thei
surveys must lie thoroughly gone over
and compared lcfore anything can Ik
determined as to the best route. When
we build a new road we always build the
lent that can be constructed, and dec
sinns on matter of this kind cannot be
hurried. Just at the present time one c r
the greatest drawbacks is the scarcity
money. Iluijiling railroads with 7 per
cent money Is not a very attractive
proposition, even where the country h
developed ami ready to supply traffic
from the start. However, as I stated tx
fore, I am iu no position to announc.
any plans at this tune."
TME BEAR HUNT.
Two Days Active Sport Chasing Bruin
throu.h the Tall Timber.
Saturday afternoon two of the
automobiles, carrying camping out
fit and the hunters, left for the Sf'
ters country in quest of bear. They
had hunted in vain for bruin around
Klamath and, upon being told of
the many bear in the mountains
hereabouts, determined to try their
luck again. Aud they were no
sorry that they did. The party
was composed of Avril and Roland
Harritnan, Dr. V. G. Lyle, Co!.
Wm. H. Hollabird. J. A. Taylor,
and J. E. Sawhillof Bend; W. P.
Vandevert of Besnd, Frank Arnold,
Frank Gerdeu and Joe CJaypool,
ranchers in the Sisters country, with
four hounds, went along as veteran
hunters; Ralph Patterson was there
to cook for the crowd; Glen Eyre
and Barney Lewis looked after the
horses; and the two chauffeurs at
tended to the horseless steeds.
They drove the automobiles
through Sisters to the very foot of
Mt. Jefferson, where camp was
made Sunday. The pack and sad
dle horses that had been sent ahead
to Sisters to carry Harritnan,
O'Brien and others over the C. &
E. survey, were diverted from that
work and enlisted in the bear hunt.
Early Monday morning they
started out to chase bruin from the
berry patches and when about five
miles from camp the hounds picked
up the fresh trail of one of the
beasts The chase was soon on in
full blast. For the greater part of
that day they followed the dogs aud
the bear, up and down canyons,
through brush and over fallen trees.
The bear headed directly over the
mountain and the hunters, largely
on account of the dense underbrush
were unable at any time to over
take him and he disappeared over
the west side. The chase was aban
doned for that day and the hunters
returned to" camp. Tuesday morn
ing, the trail of another bear was
picked up at the foot of Black
Butte and followed until noon,
when the visiting hunters reluc
tantly had to abandon the chase iu
order to continue the journey to
Shaniko 011 schedule time. But
they had thoroughly enjoyed the
two days' sport and were loud in
their praise of this section.
J. is,. Sawhill said that it was cer
tainly a great sight as the hunters
gathered around the camp fire at
night in the wilds of the' big timber.
The two automobiles lent a gro
tesqueness to the scene, 14 head of
horses stood near by, while. 15 men
