DEMAND FOR MONEY
Liend Wants Funds for
Improvement of Streets.
A POINT AT LAW INVOLVED
City Official Petition County Court (or
50 per Cent of the Roncl Tnx Col
Iccicd In Itcnil District.
The municipality of Ilcnd has
submitted n demand to the county
court of Crook county that 50 per
cent of the moneys collected for
road purposes within the city dur
ing 1904, 1005 and 1906 be deliv.
ctcd to the city mid expended for
the improvement of its streets. A
request for this money has been
made heretofore at various times,
but Judge Hell has always refused
to deliver it on the grounds that
the law did not provide for such a
disbursement of the county road
Recently Mayor Goodwillic re
quested Attorney C. S. Benson to
subinit an opinion as to the meaning
of the law covering the point in
controversy. This was done, At
torney Benson holding, after due
examination of the statute, that
the county court was obliged to re
turn 'to each road district within
the count v 50 percent of the money
collected in each district for road
purposes; said sum to be expended
on the district's roads under the
sticrvisioti of the county road
master. Consequently Mr. Ben
.son was instructed to draw tip a
demand for the amount due the
city of Ilcnd from the county road
fund, which (leitnnd was presented
to the county court at it last
session. The demand covers the
moneys collected during the years
190.J, 1905, and 1906. The city
of Ilcud had previously been con
stituted 11 road district, hence the
law covering the division aud ex
penditure of money in road dis
tricts is applicable. The county
court referral the matter to Dis
trict Attorney Mcncfee and is await
ing his interpretation of the law
before taking nctiou.
The statute on which the city
officials base their dcmiiid is found
in the General Laws of Oregon,
1903, and is one relating to the
establishment and maintenance of
roads and highways. Sections
34 and 36 of this statute reads:

Why Oregon Fruit Excels.
At the request of tlic Oregon
Development League, Hon. Wilbur
H', Newell), presideut-'of the State
Board of Horticulture, has boa
detiscd in the following 100 words
a statement atmut Oregon fruit that
should be printed iu every language
known to the tongue of man:
"Oregon excels in fruit. Proof.
Ilccause her apples arc the acknowl

IMPROVC'iIBNTS IN RESERVES
Telephone Lines and Roads Will Be
Hullt throughout National Forests.
Forest Ranger Urowu sent a force
of his guards, Billings, Petit and
Patterson, out Monday to begin
permanent improvement work at
different points in the Fremont
National Forest. Rangers' stations
will be built at Silver Creek Marsh,
Timothy Meadows, and several oth
er points of vantage. At these sta
tions pastures will be fenced for the
convenience of the guards and the
traveling public. Many trails will
be laid out, one of the most impor
tant of which will lead from Tim
othy Meadows to the top of Bald
mountain, and must have a grade
that will not exceed 15 per cent.
From the top of this mountain a
view of nearly the entire reserve is
commanded and here will be estab
lished a sort of lookout station for
observance of forest fires. This sta
tion will soon be connected by tele
phone with Ranger Brown's head
quarters iu Silver Lake. In case a
fire starts anywhere iu the forest it
will at once be observed by the
lookout on top of the mountain and
u telephone message sent nt once to
headquaiters, from where a force of
men can be sent to fight the fire.
On the 20th of this mouth 20 ad-
dttionll titer? will be put to work to
carry to completion as rapidly as
possible the work that has been
mapped out. One scarcely realizes
what the government is doing in its
national forest policy. Large quan
tities of telephone wire have been
ordered nud will be used in running
lines nil through the reserves. Iu
the Cascade reserve a line will be
built at once from Lowell to Odell
lake and also another line from
Kagle point to Crater lake. There
will le many branch lines built, one
from the main line to each station
occupied by r ranger, so that they
will be in constant communication
with each other and with the super
visor. Another great feature will be- the
making of a government trail from
McKeuaic Bridge south along the
wcbt slop of the Cascades to the
California line. This trail will have
a minimum width of eight feet and
will be used for giving greater ac
cessibility to the forest. It will be
free for public use and patches of
grass and good pasture along the
trail will be reserved for tourists
and those who care to make a trip
through the forests. Not even the
cattle and hheep pasturing on the
range will be allowed to molest it.
There will also be by-trails and
driveways so that people can get
through the forest easily, and they
will be made as much ns possible a
place where people may enjoy an
outing ami go hunting and fishing
iu tact, an immense national pub
lic park. Silver Lake Oregoniau.

A RUSH FOR TIMBER
Many Will Try to Place a
LAST CHANCE TO (1ET CLAIM
Woods Are Full of Cruisers anil Hach
160 Acres of Timber Will Uo
liagcrly Hobbled Up.
One week from tomorrow, or on
Sept. 28, a considerable tract of
timber land extending south of
Bend for many miles will be thrown
open to settlement, and tol filing on
Oct. 28. It is evident that there
will be a grand rush. made for this
timber and many will make an at
tempt to establish resideucc on the
land and, what is of prime impor
tance, to be the first one there, thus
securing "squatters' right." For
the past few weeks the timber has
has been full of cruisers nud each
of them undoubtedly has an appli
cant for every claim that is of any
As an example of the con
troversy that will ensue over some
of these claims the cruisers tell that,
as early as three or four weeks ago,
several parties bad gone onto a val
uable quarter section not far from
Klamath, built shanties and posted
their notices. Foundations for
shanties, and notices could be found
on several of the claims. Such
actiou is in direct violation of the
regulations and people are warned
in the official publication of notice
of restoration from taking up settle
ment in any way on the land prior
to Sept. 28. It is said that the for
est rangers received instructions to
take down notices that had been
put up and to forward them to the
land office of the district in which
found. Also that several different
inspectors had been sent at different
times to investigate these instances
of premature settlement and to re
port. The government evidently
intends not to allow any settlement
prior to the stated time, on Sept.
This will undoubtedly be the
last chance by which people will be
able to secure timber claims in any
considerable number in Oregon on
the cast slope of the Cascades.
This is fully realized and many will
make strenuous efforts to secure
one of the prizes, with the senti
ment predominating that says,
"Let the devil take the hindmost."
A PAINFUL ACCIDENT.
L. P. Uurk Falls from Wagon and Is
L. P. Burk, the father of Mrs.
R. A. Puett of Beud, left here some
two weeks ago with Ralph Sheldon
and Carlyle Triplett on their trip
over the Cascades to the Valley.
While crossing the mouutaius Mr.
Burk was thrown from the wagon
and received serious and painful in
juries. The Eugeue Register has
the following account of the acci
dent: "Another serious accident oc
curred on the military road just
this side of the summit of the Cas
cades last Sunday. A party of 15
people were coming across the Cas
cades, consisting of R. Sheldon and
family, Mrs. Kever ami children,
Carl Triplett, L. P. Burk, Clarence
Parker and others. L. P. Burk,
who is 69 years old, occupied a
spring seat in one of the wagons,
and in passing over an unusually
deep rut the spring broke and he
was thrown out in front of the
wheels. . He said he could . have
ckircd the wheels whea he fell if
his feet had not caught in the har
ness. As it was, lie dropped itt
front of the wheel and it crushed
him up against a big rock in the
road, breaking several of his ribs,
one of which punctured the lung.
At the same time the horse backed
and stepped on his face, badly cut
ting and disfiguring him, As soon
as he could be sent to Kugcnc, Lent
Lester was sent to meet him with a
light rig, and arrived with the in
jured man nt 9 o'clock Tuesday
evening. Dr. Bartlc. who is attend
ing him, says he is in bad shape.
the tissues all about the side where
the ribs arc broken are filled with
air and it is as black as can be.
The injuries remaining unattended
for three days, makes it pretty bad.
yet Mr. Burk has no fever, but is '
spitting up larce quantities of blood
and pus from his lungs."
