FRIDAY, JULY ty, 190S.
Since 1110 53109118 of Bcud have
been closed by decree oT the voters,
there have been three or four cases
of drunkenness reported to The
Bulletin. A most pertinent ques
tion is, "where did these tucn pet
their liquor?' - .
Well, it is Taft and Sherman vs.
Bryan aud Kcru, ntid the people
wil decide whether Bryau's uu
Jytag ambition to sit in the White
House shall be realized. If the
Commoner scores another defeat
shouldn't it be "three times and

The Bulletin publishes an article
this week bv L. D. Wiest. clerk of
thc"Bcnd school board, in which he
calli attention td some of the ad
vantaged possessed by Bend as a
location for educational institutions.
He very properly points out that a
school, besides possessing efficient
instructors and equipment, should
also fi'ave a suitable location, as en
vircnacnt, hygienic conditions, etc.';
are oCntmost value. Few localities
can equal Bend in this respect, pos
sessing as it docs a healthful and
invigorating climate, pure water, a
great amount of sunshine, superb
scenery, and unlimited means for
jJUtdoor recreation. The school
beard is completing arrangements
for the teaching of a full high
school course when school opens in
September. The Bend teachers
have amply proven their ability.
Parents throughout this section can
choose no better place than Bend to
send -their children for a high school
throughout a goodly portion of the
West, and campers from distant
parts of the state arc acquiring the
liable of spending a few weeks each
summer aloui: the Deschutes. All
arc welcome. Thctc is one precau
tion, however, that everyone should
observe, aud that is to sec that no
camp fires arc allowed to spread
and thus set the timber nfirc. To
be sure the Bend country is never
visited by such destructive fore.t
fires r.s rage in sections where the
underbrush is heavy, but a fire in
the timber here does much damage,
-.tatcments to the contrary notwith
standing. That is the opinion of
two experienced timbcrtnen ex
pressed to The Bulletin. A fire
gets to running In the needles aud
pine cones uud.oftcpitinies, where a
tree is covered , with a goodly
amount of pitch, the fire eats into
the ba.se of it and cause's it to fall
an easy victim to the next high
wind. Down it goes and a monarch
of the woods is laid low and several
dollars worth of property destroyed.
The creeping fire also damages the
young trees. Campers .hould be
exceedingly careful to see that
their camp fires are put out and not
allowed to spread. We can not be
too careful in tbat,rcsjcct.
"the resolutions adopted by the
Arnold Irrigation Company at its
yearly meeting urging the next leg
islature to enact a modern .water
law calls attention to a very impor
tant matter. Oregon needs an effi
cient irrigation code and the wel
fare of tb,e state demands that such
a measure be passed at the earliest
opportunity. Previous legislatures
have refused to enact "o water law
in line with present-day ideas and
needs. This refusal 90 the part of
the lawmakers should cease. The
people recognize the importance of
placing on the state's statute books
a law that, eventually will make
titles to water as secure and certain
as titles.to, land; They intend to
Iiave,,su,cu, a law. It is quite gen
erally conceded that the adoption
of a modern water law would be of
inestimable value to everyone con
cerned and would assist greatly in
th'e development of the state. Then
why should the legislature refuse
to enact such a measure? There is
no good reason, and a proper water
statute will undoubtedly be enacted
by the legislature that convenes
Our newly-elected county judge,
Mr. H. C. Ellis of Bend, assumed
the duties of his office last Monday,
and for four years and a half he
will be at the head of the county
administration. Four years and a
half, because by an amendment
adopted at the recent election, coun
ty and state officers will hereafter
be elected in November, aud Judge
Kilts successor will not be elected
until November, 1912.
Judge Ellis was elected after a
very spirited contest, carried on
through the campaigns preceding
both the primary and general elec
tions, and the splendid victory he
won in both was a flattering testi
monial to the high regard in which
the people of this county hold him,
and to the expectations which they
have of an economical and business-like
administration under him
That Judge Ellis will justify
these expectations his friends con
fidently believe and predict. Upon
assuming the duties of the county
judgeship, he has the confidence of
the citizens of the county in his
ability and integrity. While the
duties are new to him, his business
and legal training will enable him
to soon familiarize himself with the
details of the office, and to conduct
the business of the county in a
manner which will reflect credit
upon his administration. In this
work he will have the backing aud
assistance of Commissioners Bayley
and Rice, and under the present
county court we predict .1 business
like and economical administration
of the county's affairs, with fair
and impartial treatment of all sec
tions of the county alike.

alist find tlicTtunalo, the Deschutes
and the numerous ditch banks n
rich ficl'dTor their pursuits."
As in all irrigation districts, Bend
has numerous homes 'surrounded
by beautiful gteen InwnU to which
the natural juniper midline add an
additional attractiveness. On tie
count of the lumber autl otlier in
terests its population is decidedly
cosmopolitan, being composed of
people from nlmont all countries as
well as nil sections- of -the United
States, thereby giving the .student
a great opporcuuity to broaden his
geographical knowledge, As in
all western communities the people
of Bend are social nml linspltable.
Besides its home facilities Bend has
Sunday school and preaching ser
vices every Sunday and Christian
Endeavor meetings during) the
school months, lodges of different
secret organizations, a free library
ntul reading room and no saloons.
Like all Central Oregon towns,
Bend has no railroad, but as fur as
stage lines arc concerned it has be
come a veritable hub,, being direct
ly connected with almost all points
in the central part, of the state by
the following routes:
Bend to Shaniko via Redmond,
Culver, Madras and Youngs, daily.
Bend to Shaniko, via Powell
Unites, Priucvillc and Hay Creek,
Bend to Rosland, Silvtr Lake
and Lakcvicw, 6 times a week.
Bend to Laidlaw, 6 times u week.
Bend to Crook, once a week, to
be commenced in a few weeks.
A uotictblc fact in connection
with this subject is that its con
necting roads are never blocked by
snow drifts or washouts and practi
cally devoid of mud in the near
vicinity of Bend.
The greatest importance -of all
in connection with an educational
institution, are the sanitary con
ditions. If Bcud lacked anything
in other conditions it would more
than counterbalance such short
comings by its favorable hygienic
conditions. Not only Is the aver
age monthly temperature moder
ately uniform, but also 011 account
of the sea and mountain currents
of air the exceedingly high aud low
maximum and minimum tempera
tures and the cyclones and bliz
zards of the Middle West and the
hot suffocating nights of the At
lantic states arc unknown here;
neither are the dangers contracted
from the moist beds along the Pa
cific coast experienced here. On
the other hand comfortable and re
freshing sleep can be expected dur
ing the entire year. No fleas, and
the disease-carrying mosnuito is
almost a. nonentity. The sky be
ing uipstly char, the student is con
tinually buoyed" by the cool aud in
vigorating 'atmosphere from the
Cascades. In connection with this
subject is, , the cScccUcut water of
the Deschutes, irom which llctiu
receives its vyajer supply. Not on
ly is the water of tiic Deschutes
free from nil alkali mid other dctri-
! mental proertic.s aud equal in pur
ity in all respects to the Bull Run
.supply of Portland, but owing to
the wonderful tact that the lies
chutes river never raises or becomes
low, the water is not only always
iMirfcctly clear but also never be
comes contaminated by foulness
from a low condition or by wash
ing rublugc and refuse that gath
ers along the bank. In short, the
health condition of Bend is con
siderably above and the death rale
considerably below the uverage
throughout the United States.
When considering all these fav
orable natural condition.-; we arc iiot
in the least .surprised that the Bend
school (.practically in its infancy)
stands at the head in efficiency of
the schools of Crook county, but
on the contrary if it did not surp.ss
the rest of tlse schools we would be
prepared to say that our system
would be lacking in some respect.
