Porter Itros. Repair Outfit.
There Is not much new iu the
railroad line this week, but the
eotiiitry from Madras to the Des
chutes and down that stream to its
mouth is still full of Ilnrrimnn nud
Oregon Trunk I.lne surveyors. The
Mulletin has it direct from one of
Ilntriiuau's crews that as soon as
they finish their work where now
stationed iu the I)cchutf.s canyon
near Hunt's ferry that they will
be moved either to Redmond or iu
the vicinity of the crossing over
Crooked river. This will lw with
in a month, and would indicate that
Harrimnu intends to push Ins line
as least as far south as Rend.
J. X Hunter, who returned from
Portland the latter part of Inst
week, confirms in every detail tin
letter received by Thclhillctin from
him and Mr. Slants. lie says that
Porter Urns, nre repairing their con
struction outfits nud arc quietly
moving them across the Columbia
from the North Rank road. Their
horses have l-eu moved across and
thry are establishing camp near the
mouth of the Deschutes.
Mr. Hunter further slates that
the Oregon Trunk Line (or 1 1 ill
road) is alioul six month ahead of
Ilarrinuu iu ito surveying, atid
hence has a great advantage over
Ilurrtmau. Rurllieriuore, the
Trunk Line has secured right of
way from the government wherever
it line crones government laud,
and Senator Rand uf Washington
is rapidly securing right of way
across all deeded land crossed by
the Oregon Trunk. Iu short,
Messrs. Hunter and Stunts are very
confident. Irom what they learned
at Portland, that actual construc
tion will 1m begun within the next
30 days, and that the next few
mouth wilt see one of the Kteatcst
railroad building contests ever
waged in the Northwest, ami it will
lie fought out along the Deschutes

hungry people near here. Unfortunately
the sheep got 011 one of the irrigating
ditches and the owner was compelled to
pay the damage. It Htems tlrangc that
these sheep owners can't be made to un

ASKS FOR TAX EXEMPTION
Rend Applies to the District Boundary
Hoard for Exemption from the
County llljch School Tax.
Shall the Rend school district be
exempt hereafter from paying the
tax in support of the county high
school at Prinevillc? An attempt
is being made by the local school
board to secure that exemption, and
it is very probable the boarj will
be success'ul in its endeavors. Last
Monday, h. D. Wicst, iu behalf of
the Iknd board, appeared Ik, or
the district boundary board, which
was in session at Prinevillc, and
laid the matter before this board
After a lengthy discussion of the
matter, .and a careful consideration
of the law that exempts rt.rt.iiii
high schools from the county high
.chool tax, it is the belief of Mr
Wiest that the boundary board was
in favor of granting the Iknd dts
trict the exemption prayed for
However, the boundary board did
not feel inclined to take immediate
action on the matter aud postponed
a final decision until their next
meeting, which will be on Novem
ber 5. In the mcbutime the entire
board will visit the Bend hijh
-chool aud pass upon its efficiency.
If they are satisfied the Bend school
meets the requirements of the law
they will undoubtedly declare lh"
Dend district exempt from tbe
county high school tax.
There is a provision in the Ore
gon school law which provides that
any school district may establish 1
high school, and when that high
school liecomes the equal in efficien
cy of the county high school, said
district shall be exempt from t-c
county high school tax. The stat
ute is, iu part, as follows:
"That when anv tchool diatrict. r
union high school district, skill main
tain a high school which iu oil rc-pecti
ball tie equivalent in efficiency to tit
count v high school, which rftlctcn y
shall be determined by the dutnet bout)
dary board, such territory slull 1 ex
empt from a tax to support a county
That is the statute under which
the Iknd school board is working
to secure the exemption. There is
110 doubt, whatever, that the Rend
school is fully the equal in efficien
cy of the county high school The
course of study has b:en laid down
after due consultation with ami up
on the recommendations of State
Superintendent Ackenuau and com
plies with the state law m every re
spect. Hence the Rend board is
very confident that the boundary
board will decide in favor of the
If the exemption is secured it
will mean quite n saviug to the
Rend district. Iu 1906 the Rend
district paid into the county high
school fund the sum of $900, aud
tit 1907 the not inconsiderable sum
of 500. Should the local board
win in its present endeavors, this
sum could hereafter be expended
iu support of the Beud high school,
or could be deducted from the an
tutal levy nud would thus result lu
n saving to the tax payer.
The district boundary board is
composed of County Judge KIlis,
commissioners Rayley and Rice
and County Superintendent Ford.
