Sliver Lake Man OrutaUy Murdered
and Body thrown Into Creek
The Silver Lake Orconian gives
additional particulars regarding the
murder of Julius Wallandc near
that place, which was noted in last
week's Bulletin. The Orcgonian
says the body was discovered float
ing iu Silver creek.
A coroner's jury was immediate
ly impanelled ami the investigation
following proved beyond a doubt
that Wullandc had been cruelly
murdered. On his head were io
deep wounds from some blunt In
strument, two of the blows causing
the wounds having, beep of suffi
cient force to cause fractures. His
nose had been fractured, his arms'
badly bruised, and he had evident
ly been choked. It is believed that
he made u desperate last struggle. .
When Wallandc disappeared he
was known to have something near
100 and a $35 gold watch, w.'tirh
had been taken from him before the
body writ! thrown iuto the creek,
but ifrls the general belief at Silver
Lake that robbery was not the only
motive that prompted the heartless
murderer to commit the terrible

and conviction of the murderer.

Lumbermen Will Come to Bend about

Thomas II. Sbevlin and son,
Thos. L., and a Mr. Hickson,
lumber capitalists of Minneapolis,

will be in Bend about May to and
will remain eight or 10 days look

this section. It is also announced
that representatives of all the var

large timber holdings hereabouts

also reported that the lumbermen
will bunch their holdings by trad-,

themselves while in Bend. When
a company owns a few quarter
sections of timber removed from the

BLANCHARD A READY TOOL
Madras Pioneer (lives Additional Facts
Relative to the County Seat's Can
didate for County Judge.
More interesting developments
are coming to ligbt in regard to
the "flop" of J. F. Blancbard, who
first sought to secure the republi
can nomination for county superin
tendent of schools and then changed
his mind and went after the nomi
nation for county judge, in opposi
tion to H, C. Ellis of Bend. It is
generally believed and Mated b
the voters that Blancbard s flop
was instigated by Prineville politi
cians who hoped to defeat Mr. Ellis
by splitting the vote in the Madras
section. .This belief is strength
ened by an cditori.il in last week's.
Pioneer in answer to the letter
which Mr. Blancbard sent to that
paper f r publication, and which
also appeared in the Bulletin two
weeks ago. The Pioneer makes
statements that prove conclusively
that Mr. Blancbard's flop" was

Extracts from the Pioneer's edi-'.
torial arc as follows:
"By a very ingenious geographi
cal division of the county be seeks
to make it appear that bis candi
dacy was induced by the desire to
uive this end of the county repre
sentation on the county board,1
when as a matter of fact, by bis
own admissions, the subject of bis
candidacy for county judge wits
first broached by the Prineville'
people. Does Mr. Blancbard ex
pect auy person in this end of the
county to believe that their anxiety
to have him run forjudge was in
the interest of the Madras country?
"There was unquestionably 'geo
graphy' in bis candidacy, but it
rests in this: The Prineville poli
ticians who pt-rsuaded him to quit
the race for school superintendent
and enter the race for county judge
expected through his candidacy to
cause a split in the solid vote on
the west side of the county and
thereby defeat Mj. Ellis. There
was more politics than geography
"His natfte bad never been men-
tioucd in connection with the judge
ship, aud was not until his. candi
dacy was launched at Prineville
He cannot denv that he felt no
unxiety about this district's repre
scntatiou on the county court until
the matter was pointed out to him
by the astute politiciamt at Prine
"Every voter in this precinct
kuows whether he wanted Mr.
Blancbard to quit the nce for
school superintendeut and run for
judge, or whether that proposition
came from Mr. lilauchard utnueii.
If he signed a petition asking Mr.
Blancbard to run forjudge, as some
did, be knows whether the idea
originated in his own mind, or
whether Mr. Blancbard suguested
the idea and argued hint into the
belief that the change was neces
sary in order to give this section
representation. Is that popular
clamor for Mr. Blancbard to run
"Some of his friends in this pre
cinct sigued his petition, but they
did so because Mr. Blauchard him
self solicited tbeirslgnaturcs. Many
of his friends here, we know, urged
him not to make the change? Mr.
Blauchard all the time peeking to
overcome their objections 'by subtle
arguments. And yc be intimate
that the denian&rcame from this
sectiou or he Uhould not have ea
tered the xtL&VT
"As to whose caadtdate Mr.
Blauchard ia, one statement made
by bim while be was hr J&ckHt
ly illuminate. that qwatteu, ' Jn
the praMHCfcf bysfeUMsWfs IteMtb-
cd to several business men in Mad
ras that he had been promised at
Prineville that if he would run for
judge, there should not be any
democratic candidate lor that olhcc,
Who was it then induced Mr.
Blancbard to run for county judge?"
The voters from the west and
north sides of the county under
stand clearly the reason why Mr.
Blancbard suddenly decided to
seek the nomination for county
judge, and knowing this they arc
uniting in their support of Mr.
Ellis. They recognize in Mr. Elli
a man who is eminently qualified
to fill the office of county judge and
one whose legal training aptly fits
him to preform the duties of that
office with great ability. They
also know that Mr. Ellis will give
an impartial administration of
county affairs, and that one section
of the county will not be favored at
the expense of other sections. In
hort, they are confident that with
Mr. Ellis county judge the affairs
of the county will be conducted as
they should be and with fairness to
nil. For these various reasons Mr.
Ellis will pol a very large vote at
the primaries and will easily win
the nomination and later the elec
tion. Oood Words for Coe and Ellis.
Tumano, March zi We are glad to
see the encouraging account inlhc pa
per in lavor 01 two 01 ucpu'a ies 1 an

tion at the primaries in April. Mr RIIH

run and if elected will be the right men
