of 'Head of Spring (Iter.
As the time for city ilectinn
draws near, some op-osition is de
veloping to the purchase, by the
city, of the l.mtl at the head of
.Spring river. Toose who are op
posing the move claim:
1. That the move is premature
That conditions ate too unsettled
and the city too smalt to bother
with this question at the present
3. That the city will Lc much
more able to take up thii matter
later, say live or 10 cnrs heme,
and the new supply will not Ire
needed before that. The taxable
prupcrly will be much greater then
and the burden would not lc so
heavy as it would now.
3. That the purchase of the
laud docs not give title to the wat
er That title to tuc water wnulu
have to Ik: secured by condemna
tion, the same as will have to be
done if the laud is not purchased.
Hence, they argue that the pur
chase of the laud would give the
city no advantage.
.). That this expenditure by the
city would make lakes too high.
They arc nlieady heavy enoiinh,
and an additional burden should
not be added at this time.
5. That Henri's water supply is
now the best ami purest in Central
Oregon nud will be so for several
years. It can easily be kept pure
until the needs of the city, as it
grows larucr, demand an expensive
6. That the cost of laying a pipe
from the head of Spring river to
Henri would bo prohibitive, and
that it is an impracticable scheme.
There arc the chief arguments
advanced by the opposition to this
move. It Is n question in which all
the people of Henri arc interested,
anil The Hullctiu is endeavoring to
lay both sides of the question be
fore the tax payers. It Is n ques
tion t,hat should be carefully in
vestigated bv each tax payer before
he casts his ballot for or against it.

The latter part of the week while
the ZX boys were riding after cat

came across a bear, , and Harve

soon had the bear wjith u noose

the intention of the toys to bring
him Into Silver Lake alive, but the
bear's intentions were different, for
while the horseman pulled one way
the bear nulled the other, ami of
course this strenuous disagreement
could not lost always; the bear soon
lost all interest in life ami died.

when its organization for the "d

will be removed from Washington
to six field districts in the West.
The designation of Western banks
to handle the moneys received from
timber sales, penuits for stock graz

resources in the National Forests is
an innovation which will mean that
all the receipts of the Forest Service
in the future will be deposited to

United States and made available
for circulation in the trait of the
country from which it is derived,
within the limits of the amounts al

The banks which hove been named
and which have all consented to
serve the government are located

Forest Service and the officers of

directly to the national bank which
is the depository for the district.

be assembled and checked up at the
end of each day, single certificates
of deposit made out by the bank
and mailed to the secretary of the
treasury. This simple plan which
has required mouths for the treas

will expedite business both for the
users of the National Forests and
for the force in the office of each
district forester, and at the same
time will make it possible for the
government to deposit the National
