(loot! (lama at County Fair.
Hcnd has ngain been brought In
to the limelight as a baseball town.
Since the early days of the town
when "Minnie" I.ec und Pitcher
Ililycti were stars on the llend
team, there has scarcely been a sin
gle season wheu we could not boast
of a good ball tcum and a large
number of us fanatical fans as otic
would care to sec. Ilcnd Is a base
bull town and the people of Betid
are proud ol their team this season.
Pue reason for The Bulletin's
boasting may lc seen on display in
the window of the Ilcnd News
Stand, In the form of a beautiful
silver cup on which is engraved,
"Crook County Daseball Cham
pionship, 1909," presented to the
team by the First Central Oregon
Agricultural Association nt the
county fair at Prluevillu last week.
The cup and a cash purse were
offered the winning team in a
championship contest at the fair,
and the llend team won them both
in a perfectly played game on the
Priucvillc diamond Saturday after
noon, despite the fuct that the
Priucvillc team hud imported two
western league players and used
Home unfair tactics besides. The
Prinevillc catcher held u llend
man's bat at n time when a .good
hit was badly needed, and Demi's
"second baseman was "spiked" by n
Prluevitlu player, Besides this,
Kulp, one of Ucnd's best batters,
was wulked every time up, except
the first, when he made a clean two
bagger. One thing, however, that
is to be said In Princvllle's favor
Is that the decisions by Umpire
apautuing, a I'rtncvlJJe man, were
Some of the best plays of the
game were a star catch in center
field by Mctkc, with a double to
first, nud a good catch in right field
by Swank. Prccman, on first base
played a perfect game and Tcthc
row led with the largest number of
hits, securing four. In the third
inning Jordou of Priucvillc made a
desperate attempt to steal home
from third, but wis put out.
The Hcnd crowd brought home
something like $700 of Prlnevilie
money and, if reports arc true,
could have gotten that many thous
and, so sure ws Prinevillc people
that they would wlu the game.

The Silver Lake Leader has the
following concerning a big cattle
deal: "-Hayes Bros, sold on last
Friday to Charles Horton, the well
known cattle buyer, 1100 head of
cattle, consisting of cows, calves
and steers. In this deal Mr. Hor
ton also purchased 350 tons of bay
and a thousand acres of pasture.
It is the intention of Mr. Iforton to
sell the htccr calves which number
about 200, and then remove a por
tion of the remaining cuttle to his
Klamath county ranch, and bring
io in their place some 400 head of
steers which he has purchased of J.

feed them for beef until spring.

INHKMNITV SltUtCTION LAND fio.
At a meeting of the State Lund
Board recently it was derided to in.
crease the price of indemnity selec
tion laud from 8.7; toftioanacre.
The state still onws about 90,000
acres of this clsss of land. The
new price went In effect at once.
'Matt Clark, right-of-way agent
for the Oregon Trunk Line, accom
panied by II. B. Shannon, arrived
In Bend Monday night and will be
gin the acquirement of right of way
for that line at once.
This is indeed good news for
Bend, as it undoubtedly means that
preparations arc in progress for fin
isbing the construction of the line
at lcasU this far, without delay.
There arc other good indications
which may soon be mude public,
that construction work will soon be
commenced here, but on these The
Bulletin is, pledged to secrecy for
the present. Suffice to say, men
who ought to know, are practically
certain that construction crews will
be at work here before the first of
the year. The fact that right of
way is being bought is only fur
ther proof of this intention. Bend
will be the busiest place in Eastern
Oregon by the time spring comes
Survey Line Throuch Bend.
The question of just where the
Hill railroad will run through Bend
and the Bend country seems to be
the engrossing one in the minds ol
the people here at present. From
this standpoint, The Bulletin be
lieves that most of its readers will
be interested in knowing that dur
ing the past week the Hill survey
ors have run 8 line through the
eastern part of Bend, running
south along the west side of the
Pilot Butte canal for some distance.
The survey passes directly throuch
the Lytic townsitc, and a significant
feature of the work on this new
route is that the exact dimensions
and location of each building loca
ted on the line of right of way is
being carefully noted. This would
seem to indicate that the Hill peo
ple have strong expectations of lo
cating permanently on this line and
are taking this data to enable them
to uct widely in buying and remov
ing these buildings.
Though there has bec'u some
speculation as to just the route the
road would take in passing through
Bend, there can be no doubt that it
is the iuteution of the company to
make this place one of its chief
centers and a permancut location
on the survey in question will oc
casion no surprise here. The Hill
railroad will pass through Bend,
llarrlman Road Well Alone.
The Orcgonian of Oct. 23 says;
"The completion of the Deschutes
railway into Madras by next June
is the present hope of the Harri
man construction forces, and the
prediction is made in the offices of
the company that trains will be
running regularly to that point by
the middle of the coming summer.
"The promise is not definitely
made, as unlooked-for obstacles arc
frequently encountered in railroad
work, but progress so far has been
so satisfactory that such a lime
limit for the completion of that
portion of the road is now indicated
"If these hopes are fulfilled, the
orietnal time fixed for the comple
tion of the railroad through the
Deschutes canyon will have been
been shortened from eight months
to one year. As previously out
lined, tlie work was to require
nearly two years.
"The company has been rushing
construction tins fall, however, and
now has a force of 2300 men In the
Held. in addition, five steam shov
els and 800 teams arc working.
"Preparations arc being made
to use a steam shovel in the con
struction of the 800-foot tonnel at
Horseshoe Bend. The character
of the preliminary work shaws that
a shovel may lie used to advantage,
and one is now being taken down
Mack s canyon to becin work at
the south portal. When the shovel
is in operation the tunnel will co
ahead at the rate of 30 or 40 feet a

ucyona Aiaaras mere is some
heavy viaduct work to be done, and
this can be accomplished to best ad
vantage after rail transportation is
given 10 mat point.
''Near the mouth of the canyon
15 miles of grade have been practi
cally completed. The grade, how
ever, has not alt been connected up,
owing to the heavy work in gettinir
pver the Moody dam. The entire
field is covered with construction
crews to and beyond Madras, with
the exception oi one point of con

NEW TOWN AT
Crook county Is to have a new
town. What its name is, or wheth
er it has yet been named, was not
learned, but it will be located at
Trail Crossiug, about six miles be
low Redmond," where the Oregon
Trunk Liue survey crosses Crooked
. A party of surveyors with a man
In charge left Bend yesterday for
that place, and will plat the town
site at once. The meu behind the
new townslte ptoject nre A. B.
Hammoud uud V. D. Williamson,
supposed to be closely connected
with the Oregon Trunk Line. It
is the belief of Bend people who
profess to have inside information
that these gentlemen have good as
surance of railroad co-operation.
The townsite will have the ad
vantage of on abundant fresh water
supply, and if the rumors thafa
spur line is to be run from that
(Kiint to Prlueville prove true, it
may prove a very healthy compet
itor for Redmond. The new town
will be about 30 miles uorth of
Sage of Portland Com. Club dives
Bend Good Advlco.
In a letter to the Bend Board of
Trade Tom Richardson, manager
of the Portland Commercial Club,
and the best known autl ablest
booster in the Pacific Northwest,
has. this to say about the Beud
"Your section of the state is be
ing widely discussed, and Bend is
particularly in the eyes and minds
of the general public. It would le
an iufdtuous crime if your tropic
do not awake to the situatiou and
do some real advertising
Ten thousand dollars spent now
iu legitimate, common-sctiM- adver
tising will bring back n million dol
lars in returns, but it's got to be
done properly under nn organized
txxty such as yours."
Every business man itj Bend
knows this is the truth. No doubt
they will act wisely and promptly.
The Bend Board of Trade is do
ing good and profitable work these
days in the way of advertising and
furnishing information to inquiries
about the Bend country. The sec
retary of the Board has succeeded
in securing space in the last issuess
of both the Portland Chamber of
Commerce Bulletin aud the Pacific
Homestead for excellent articles
setting forth the advantages for the
homeseeker, farmer, manufacturer
and investor offered at present in
Bend and the Bend country. The
articles enumerate in a pleasing
manner the opportunities offered
here in the way of water power,
raw material for raanufacturinc,
good school facilities, excellent
farm and garden lands at low
prices, free homestead lands, dairy
ing, business chances, etc
Already. these articles have borne
fruit. During the pjst week 45
letters have been received by the
Board, 15 of which referred directly
to the articles, particularly to the
one in the Pacific Homestead.
Copies of the Chamber of Com
merer Bulletin are on sale at the
office of the Bend Board of Trade,
up stairs iu the First National Bank
building, at 10c per copy. This is
good literature to send to Eastern
friends who are, or may become in
terested in this section, and doubt
less a large number of copies will
be bought and matted out. The
first paragraph of the article in this
publication reads as follows:
"Today all eyes nre directed to
ward Central Oregon. After a
decade of hopeful waiting and un
filled promises the railroads are at
last about to give transportation to
the greatest and richest undevel
oped area in the West. Now In
deed, could the citizens of the Des
chutes country, borrow a well
known catch word and declare
"watch Central Oregon grow," for
the development of this country iu
the next three years will surpass
anything hitherto seen evea in the

Chas. Hindermau of Sisters was
badly hurt Sunday. He, with his
wife and a little girl, was driving
home from Beud, and on the way
met a motorcycle, which frightened
the horses. In the mlxup that fol
lowed Mr. Hinderman, with the
other occupants of the vehicle, was
thrown out und his collar bone
broken. The lady and little girl
were only slightly hurt.
INTER-EIGHTH GRADE DEBAT
ING SOCIETY ORGANIZED
An Inter-Eighth Grade Debating
Society was organized during the
Institute at Prinevillc. for the pur
pose of creating ability and desire
for public debating among the pub
He school pupils of Crook county.
The county was divided into three
districts, Bend, Prlueville and Mad
ras forming the centeis of the
"Triangular Debating League,'
the name given the society. The
surrounding schools of these re
spective places will be allowed aud
expected to enter the local debates
held throughout the school year.
Only one or two debates a year will
be held among the Triangular De
bating League. The following
officers aud members were elected
to constitute au executive board;
Pres. Prof. Cook, of Madras; vice
president, Miss Vandevert, of
Bend; secretary-treasurer. Prof.
Ashby, of Prlnevilie. Supt, Ford
aud Mrs. Wickershaui of Prlueville
and Prof. Myers of Redmond are
