NEW RULES ARE EASY
State Land Board Adopts
THROB MONTHS' RESIDENCE
Purchasers of Ditch Lend Will Do Put
to but Trifling Inconvenience In
The State Land Hoard nnd the
Deschutes Irrigation & Tower Com
pany have agreed on a set of rules
that cover the point of residence on
ditch land. Under the new rule
hcttlcr will be required to establish
residence for only three months at
the end of n three-year period. This
will allow them to be nbscnt from
their land for two years and nine
mouths, if they so desire. Ilcforc
u jcttlcr can acquire title to the
land, he must establish residence
for three months prior to the time
of making proof of reclamation,
cultivation and settlement. One
eighth of the land purchased must
be reclaimed and cultivated within
the three year limit. A dispatch to
the Oregonian from Salem gives
Salum. Or., Nov. 5.After many

over the adoption ol Urination rule, the

agreement tonight and rules were adopt

cerned. , '

great aid to the irrigation company In

other states can now purchase and need

BEND'S NEW ORCHESTRA.
Local Talent Organizes and Will Fur
nish Much Fine Music.
That Betid will be treated to an
abundance of high grade music
dttriug the coming winter is now
assured. A number of local musi
cians have banded together and
organized an orchestra and are
now practicing diligently for all
future occasions. They have
ordered a nutnlwr of very fine selec
tions, and, Judging from the per
sonnel of the orchestra, a rich treat
is in store for the people of llcnd.
The new orchestra is comjwscd
of the following musicians: Miss
Iva West, violin; Miss Ucssie Wil
klnson, piano; Creed Triplctt, cor
net; II. P. J. McDonald, trombone;
Dr. U. C. Coe, clarinet; V. O.
Minor, bass viol.
The orchestra alternated with
the band in furnishing music for
the dance that was given in the B,
M. hall on Thanksgiving evening.
Lovers of good music who attended
were well repaid.
There is probably nothing that
furnishes as much real and genuine
mtrrininment nnd pleasure to a
community as a good musial organ
ization. As Has been saw, tuc per
annnil of this orchestra assures that
it will be high-class in every par
ticular, anil Ucnu is to ue congrat
ulated on having the talent among
its townspeople that makes such an
AID FOR LIBRARY.
State Commission Offers to Help Uend
The library board of the Bend
Free Public Library and Reading
Room has met with much encour
agement in the work of raising suf
ficient funds to put the library man
agement on a solid business basis
and to hire a librarian on a small
salary, as outlined in a recent issue
of The Bulletin. Everyone so far
approached- has fallen in line with
the plan and arc wilting to help.
The concensus of opinion, however,
both with the board and the public,
is that the matter should be allowed
to rest for the immediate present
until the unexpected financial flurry
has subsided and until money is n
little more plentiful. The task of
raising funds will then be taken up
in earnest, and there is no doubt
that the board will be successful in
A very encouraging letter has
been received from Miss Cornelia
Marvin, secretary of the Oregon
Library Commission. The state
commission is willing to help the
Bend library in a most substantial
manner by sending free, every si
mrmtlit. a collection of from e.0 to
60 iooks, to be read and then re
turned at the end of every six
month period. The letter follows:

Moody Warehouses Ask Merchants to
Open Accounts In Shaniko Bank.
Other Interesting Notes,
Next year the forest service will
exoend $30,000 on roads, telephone
lines and houses in the Goose Lake
and Fremont national forests, says
the Lakevicw Examiner. Eight
four-room dwellings are to be built,
36 miles of fence and several miles
of road and telephone lines. Super
visor Ingram expects to put ho men
to work as eirlv as is possible to
get in the mountains, and hopes to
luvc the work complctcu uy itiiy or
Aucust. The Klamath Indian re
servation will be fenced off from the
Goose Lake and Fremont forest,
and wherever it is possible to fence
tin cans where stock travel from
one reserve to another, or from the
public ranges onto the reserves,
fences will be put up to prevent the
passage at will of all stock. This
is in order to protect those who
have permits within the reserve
and to facilitate the guarding of the
range not alloted.
Wants Money Deposited at Shaniko.
Merchants here arc complaining
about the action of V. II. Moody,
'iwncr of the Shaniko warehouses,
who wants Priueville business men
to carry deposits in the Shaniko
bank subject to lus order to cover
railroad freight charges. It is a
new departure in the forwarding
business ana prooaoiy tuc outcome
of the panic, and as yet our mer
chants arc not enthusiastic over
the prospect. They say it smacks
a good ueai ot advancing Air.

ness. Doubtless w. f . King will
have something to say about this
upon his return from Shaniko.
Telephone Line to Durns.
B. F. Johnson returned from the
Paulina country the last of the
week where he has been adjusting
range difficulties. Mr. Johnson re
ports a crew of seven men working
on the Pioneer Telegraph & Tele
phone line trom t auuna to minis.
The construction work is under the
direction of A. W. Clothier, and
Mr. Johnson says that it is one of
the best telephone lines he has ever
seen. The work has been completed
to a point about ten miles beyond
Paulina and will soon be connected
with the Lewis lines from Burns.
Upon the completion of this line a
great volume ot business tuar, ine
local companies nave never oecn
able to handle will be handled
through the central office here. To
date the people of the Burns coun
try ana adjacent territory unvc
been compelled to use a very indi
rect route, wutcli lias oeen ootn ex
pensive aud ineffective as compared
with the service thev will be civen
over the Pioneer company's lines
when the connection is compieieu.

'The Oregon Woolgrowers Asso
ciation, at their recent meeting at
The Dalles, petitioned the chief
forester of the United States "that
he caused to be sent to the National
forests of Oregon-special agents to
accomplish the destruction of pre
datory wild animals," assigning as
a reason that "within the borders'
of the National forests arc great
and natural breeding grounds for
such animals." This action w.is
taken on account of the rapid in
crease in predatory wild animals,
particularly tne coyote.
