STATEMHNT TO THAT EFFECT
Persistent Report Are Hut Portland,
Uugene & Hastcrn Will Cross
tho Cascade to IJcnd.
Reports still continue to the
effect that the Portland, Kugcnc &
uastcru railway, the electric line
that Ih building through Willamette
valley, will build over the moun
tains Into Central Oregon. In view
or the fact that one of the directors
of this road stated, while In Rend
last summer, that his road would
be built to Ilcnd within two years,
it is generally believed that these
reports arc based on fact. The
latest statement is found in the
Albany Democrat of March 37
The Democrat says:
"A. Welch, manager of the Port
land, Hugcnc & Kustcrn railroad,
was in the city cstcrday. Mr
Welch reported the rails would be
in Albany within 10 days for the
Albany system Mr. Welch
stated that it is proposed to have
cars running into Albany from
Salem by the cud of the year. In
addition it Is said the company is
securing rights of way cast from
Kugcnc over the mountains.
The Oregon Electric Co. Is also
coming south from Salem, and a
report is that it will probably cross
the mountains from Albany by way
of Lebanon nnd Cascadin "
The Oregon Klcctric already has
its line in operation from Portland
to Salem, and both this road and
the Portland, Eugene & Eastern
have surveyors in the field running
lines south from Salem to Albany
and to Eugene. With both of them
engaged in active construction
work and with both heading for
the Ilcnd country, transforation for
this section will Ik provided in the
not distant future.

Work was temporarily postponed
on this well last wiuttr, when the

He left Maine when 21 years old
and moved to Minnesota, where he
resided until 1881, then moving to

honest and well respected by all
who knew him. Up to his recent
illness, he had been remarkohh

CLAIMS IT IS NON-DESERT.
Contest Wrought against Land In Carey
Act Project In Walker Basin.
J E. Morrson, of Portland, pres
ident of the Deschutes Land Com
pany, a company that plans to re
claim a large acreage In the Walker
Basin, was in Bend the first of the
week defending his company inn
contest brought by C W. Richie ol
Roslund aeaiust a portion of the
company's segregation. The land
under contest is 200 acres lying ad
jacent to where the Silver Lakt
road crosses Paulina creek.
The allegations on which Mr.
Richie based his contest arc, that
the land produces a growth of black
jack pine nnd is capable of raising
an agricultural crop. Hence, lie
maintains, the land is not "desert"
in character nnd should not be seg
regated under the provisions of the
Mr. Morrson stated to The Bulle
tin that his company was contested
once before on similar allegations
exactly, and, after the land had
been thoroughly inspected by gov
crnmcut officials, a decision was
rendered in favor of the company.
He therefore feels that the laud
office will not reverse itself now,
and tliat lie will win in tnc present
When asked how soon his com
pany would begin construction
work on Its system of canals, Mr
Morrson replied that no definite
time could be set inasmuch as the
company would not spend any
money in construction as long as
there is n chance that the depart
ment might possibly render a de
cision in favor ol Mr. Richie, de
clare the laud non-desert in char
acter, and thus put a stop to re
claiming it under the Carey Act
He stated, however, that as soon
as n final decision is reached, his
company would push the construc
tion to n rapid completion if the de
cision favors his company. How
ever, within the next few weeks
engineers will thoroughly survey
around the short: of Crescent lake,
so as to determine what lands, if
any, will be overflowed by damming
the outlet of the lake, which the
company intends to do. i lie out
let will be lowered live tcct and a
dam built that will raise the water
18 feet above its natural level, thus
maklnc available 23 feet of stored
The Deschutes Land Compauy
has its contracts with the State
Land Board digued, and is con
tracted to reclaim 31,000 acres. It
would be a fine thing for this en

A Common Mistake
Many women mistake kidney and
women mistake Kiuncy
bladder troubles for some irregularity
peculiar to 'the sex. Foley's Kidney
Remedy corrects irregularities ami
makes women well. Miss Carrie Har

suffered much pniu from kidney and
bladder trouble until I started to use
Foley's Kidney .Remedy. The fiwt bot
tle cave me crcat relief, and after taklne
the tccoud bottle I was entirely well,"

Judge and Get
Dr. Coe's Name Will Not
Appear on Primary
URQED TO RUN INDEPENDENT
Foolish Technicality and Precise Inter.
prctatlon 0 the Low Invalidate
One of the Doctor's Petitions.
On account of an unfortunate
error due to n misleading nnd non
snsical pr vision of the law, Dr
U. C Coe's name will not appear
on the ballot for the republican
nomination for state representative
at the primary election. Word ha
been received from Secretary o
State Betion ihat one of the doc
tor's petitions was not proper 1
verified nnd hud lcen rejected, thu
not leaving the required number of
petitions to secure putting his nami
on the primary ballot. The error
existed in one of the petitions from
Lake countv, and as all petition-
hud to be filed with the sccretar
of state not later than March 37,
there was not sufficient time to cor
rect the mistake.
The law states that petition',
circulated for signatures by candi
dates who desire their name put on
the primary ballot, must be verified
by one of the signers of said pcti
tion, and then proceeds to give the
lorm of the affidavit as follows:
"I - . bring Krt duly worn, say: I
i peraoaatly acquamtcd with ll lh txrtptu
who harr ftlgucd tnlt thrrt of Ibc farrcoiiis p
tlllou and 1 personally know tht their sif na
turta tbrrron arc (enuloc, and I bcllerc thai
thrlr ixxtolfkr addrcaa and residence are cor
rectly atated, and that tbry ait qualified (lector
and rrgUtcrtd members of the .. - party."
This affidavit is printed on all
the blank petitions furnished for
signatures. It will be noticed that
not a word appears in it to indicate
that the affidavit must be signed
by one of the signers of said peti
tion. The Lake county petition
was duly signed and verified, but
not by one who signed the petition.
Hence, it was rejected.
As a matter of fact, it has not
been generally understood that the
above affidavit must be sworn to by
a signer of a petition, and a large
number of petitions have been veri
fied just as this one of Dr. Coe's
was by one who had circulated
the petition and could swc.tr to ah
the stipulations of the affidavit, but
who had not signed the petition
Under this proceeding the spirit 01
the law is fullfilled, the required
number of voters desire the candi
date's name to appear on the ballot,
but on account of a nonsensical
technicality which has no real value
the petitions are rejected.
The law is woefully weak and at
fault in this particular. If a peti
tion has to be prified by a signer
thereof, such fact should be stated
in the affidavit in order to avoid
confusion. Requiring a signer of
a petition to verify it is entirely un
necessary inasmuch as the only point
desired is to secure genuiue 'signa
tures. Many a man might circulate
a petition and know the signatures
thereon to be correct and yet could
not sign it because he might not be
a resident of the precinct in which
the signatures were obtaiued.
Hence he could not verify the peti
tion, although he would know bet
ter than anyone else that the sig
natures were correct. The stipu
lation requiring a petitiou to be
verified by a signer thereof is ridic
ulous nnd really insures uothiug to
the validity of a petition. The
practice of having petitions veri
fied by others thau signers thereof
has been quite common. Some
maintain that inasmuch as the
above affidavit is nu integral part
of the law, any petition is valid
that has been verified by one who
can, truthfully swear to the stipula
tions of said affidavit, even though
the affiant was not a signer of the
Ktition. But Secretary of State
ttsoahas. rultxl ottomfcc,' time
a Square Deal
was not time to return the petition
and have it verified under his inter
pretation, hence Dr. Coe's name
will not appear on the primary
There is a wide spread demand
imong Dr. Coe's friends that he
run independent at the general elec
tion in June and they arc urging
him to do sc. Whether he will or
not, The Bulletin is not prepared to
