Work Construction Will Ue
Steadily Carried forward.
A new manager of the, Deschutes
Irritation Sc Power Company has
been chosen by the board of direc
tors of that company In the person
of Mr. Roscoc Howard of Tacoma,
who hereafter will have full charge
of the general management of the
company's business. Mr. Howard
has already taken up his residence
at Hem! and will conduct the affairs
of the company from this place
He will move his family here with
in a short time.
F. S. Stanley, the former general
manager of the company and now
the first vice-president, arrived in
Bend the first of the week accom
panied by Mr. Howard, E. O
Hlanchar, cashier of the First
National Bank of Hood River; and
Dr. C. N. Slltcr, of Sakoi, Or
Mr. Howard at once took ur) the
duties of his office and is now
busily encaged getting the com
pany a affairs in good running
order and in shape to carry out the
plans he has in mind.
When Interviewed by The Bulle
tin iu, regard to future plans, Mr.
Howard said: "I consider the
matter of first importance is to
complete the canal and laterals now
under construction iu the Powell
Buttes neighborhood in order to
supply the settlers in that vicinity
with water. That work will be
pushed with all due dispatch. Wc
will make special efforts to adver
tise the advantages of the com
pany's segregation and to induce
hcttlcrs to come in and develop the
country. What wc want to ac
complish is the .steady and rapid
development of this section nnd
our efforts will be expended iu that
direction. Construction on the
company's system will proceed
steadily in a measure commensur
ate with the needs of the country'
development. Further than that I
nave nothing to say at present.
Speaking of the change of man
agement, Mr. Stanley said: "It
means much to Bend and to this
entire section to have Mr. Howard
take up his residence here and take
iu hand the general management of
the company. I have never had
time Jo give the matter the atten
tion it needed, and we arc confident
that much good will result with
Mr. Howard on the ground and
devoting his entire time to this

A FEW INSIDE FACTS
Regarding political Doings
of Past Two Months.
THREATEN TO DEFEAT ELLIS
Prlnevlllo Politicians Asked Ellis to
Pledzo Himself to Pavor Their
Interests Illlls Said Nay.
I he campaign preceding tne
primaries will close In one more
week, on Friday, April 17 In
Cro .k county the greatest interest
during this campaign has centered
.tbout the republican nomination
for county judge, with H. C Ellis
and J. F. Blanchard as aspirants
for the nomination. The Bulletin
has taken a. firm stand in behalf of
Mr. Ellis for the, reason that it be
lieves the best interests of the entire
county demand bis nomination and
It has been maintained, ever
since Mr Blanchard flopped from
seeking the county supcriulendenc
of schools to campaigning for
county judge, that he is the candi
date of the Prineville ting. And
many circumstances prove this con
clusively. A little inside political
history will help to explain matters
to the voters.
Shortly after Mr. Ellis announced
himself a candidate for the office 01
county judge, a number of Prine
ville politicans endeavored to get
him to come out on a published
platform in which be pledged bim
-elf to continue the building of the
new court house and to oppose
county division durine his term of
office four years. They said that
their own protection, as business
men of Pi incvilte, required such a
pledge from Mr. Ellis before they
could support him, and farther
stated that if be would uot so
pledge himself they would be forced
to defeat him. Mr. Ellis refused
to pledge himself further than that,
if elected, 'he would couducfan im
partial administration of count
uffairs and would treat all sections
of the county with equal fairness
He said that he would complete the
court bouse as rapidly as there was
money to do so under good man
agement. Regarding county divi
sion, he stated that it was uot now
an issue and might not be 'during
his term of office, bint on' the other
band it might become an issue in
that time and might be desired bv
all sections of the county, even by
Prineville itself. Flow absurd ii
would be then for him now to takq
a stand that might prove a most
foolish one in the future. Hence
Mr. Ellis refused to do the bidding
of the Prineville crowd, preferrinK
rather to stand for an impartial
administration, just and equal taxa
tion, a good system of county
schools, and good county roads
At a little gathering; of Bend meu
in the early part of the campaign,
Mr. Elhs reiterated his purpose to
treat all sections of the county witb
emial fairness when lie stated to
those present, "I ;ould just as
soou have It understood now as at
any time that if I am nominated
and elected the inter ests of Prine
ville will have to reoiive fair con
sideration the same as -all other sec
tions of the county." Those pres
ent applauded liim wben he made
that statement because it was an
utterance of the principle for which
they were contending, just and
equal treatment for all the county.
But the Prineville crowd was not
satisfied with this sort of a. candi
date. They at once set nt "work to
defeat Air. hilts, and
move was'tO'iuducc Mr. Blanchard
to go after the county judgeship.
Blanchard was. a, West , side man,
having a homestead in the jModras
scctiou. 'He w.as popular atx was
making a very, f nvorab) e ruir for
superintendent pf schools. They
desired to spUtthc West, side vote,
aud figured that Blanchard was as
strong" a man as they could put up.
TbO(raportuce of splitting the
West sideVote is seen .when one
considers 'that at th-kiiit election
the western aud northern precincts
of the county cit 1071 votes out
of a total of 1582. It was evident
that if Prineville elected a county
judtc who would continue the old
rccimc ol favoring Prineville by
robbing the rest of the county,
this North and West sldcvotc must
be sptit And they trusted in
Blanchard to split it.
Many facts go to prove this Im
mediately following the refusal of
Mr. Ellis to take the Prineville
pledge, it began to leak out that
Blanchard was being urircd at
Prineville to come out for tho
county judgeship Soon thereafter
he appeared at Madras for the o?
tensible purpose of finding out
what the people thought about it,
so he said. He exhibited a petition
there asking him to come out for
the judgeship and it is a siginficant
fact that this petition bore tbe sig
natures of the very persons at Prine
ville who bad endeavored to get
Mr. Ellistopledgehiraself tocertain
promises, and who bad threatened
to defeat him if he refused to do
their bidding. Blanchard's candi
dacy originated at Prineville and he
was not brought oat until after
Mr. Ellis Lad refused to let Prine
ville dictate his policies if be should
be elected county judge.
Mr. Ellis will receive practically
the unanimous vote of this section.
Tbe voters have known from the
beginning what is the moving spirit
behind the Blanchard candidacy,
and they will not play directly into
the hands of the Prineville ring by
voting for Blanchard. On the con
trary, Mr. Ellis promises to treat
.til sections with equal fairness, he
has a legal education that aptly fits
bim for the position, and possesses
the ability necessary to conduct the
business of the county in a business-like
manner. lie will poll
one of -the largest votes ever cast
in Crook county, and his nomina
tion and election is assured.
