WHO IS TUB MAN?
Who shall be Bend'. next mayor?
It is understood that Mayor David
son docs not desire n re-election
Who is to succeed him? It is an
During the coming two years,
the mayoralty of Bend will be an
important office. With the devel
opment that is sure' to follow the
building of railroads into this sec
tion, Bend is certain to take great
strides fotward. Many men with
busiuess ability and much exper
ience will be attracted to fiend as n
desirable place in which to invest
their capital. It is important that
the man who sits in the mayor's
chair shall be one who can meet
these men and impress them with
the fact that Bend's officers are pro
gressive, broad minded and kble.
During the city's rapid develop
ment there undoubtedly will be
applications for franchises and con
cessions of like nature from the
city. The best interests of the
municipality require that the may
or shall be one who, if it is possi
ble to obtain one. has had some ex
perience in city government, and a
man with a backbone stiff enough
to see that the taxpayers of the city
are not imposed upon when fran
chises and like concessions are
granted. In short, we need for
mayor a man vbo combine- exper
ience and ability with progressive
ness and rigid honesty.

it a fine rain fine for the dry limn-1 and to destroy this great feature ol
ers and all others
Bend will be much in need of an
able and conscientious city council
during-the comiug few years. It
behooves those who have the best
interests of the city al heart to see
that efficient men are elected at the
city election on December 7.
When one considers the fight
that Roosevelt had to secure needed
legislation; when the pernicious
ness of the late .tariff law is fully
understood; when it is realized that
congress ts apparently absolutely
under the thumb of the trusts and
protected interests; and when one
stops to consider the graft and
widespread corruption that is so
common from one end of our coun
try to the other, what hope is there
for good government in either the
republican or democratic parties?
These two parties as represented by
the men in authority, have been
captured absolutely by the enemies
of the common people. Congress
is bossed and dictated to' by a band
of buccaneers put there by the
"predatory interests" and "crimin
al rich." And republicans and
democrats are alike guilty. What
the nation needs is a "Labor"
party, similar to the one in New
Zealand by which men who have
come up from the ranks and who
still have a shred of honesty left in
them may be elected to high office.
Then perhaps the interests of the
people as a whole will be looked
after, and our congress will not be
given up wholly to handing out
graft and pelf to the trusts by means
of extreme protective tariffs and
other methods that are potbing but
robbery. Socialism is too radical
and its policies are too liable to re
sult iu serious mischief to be adopt
ed by a majority of 'voters. But
tsere is a crying need (or a sew
party whose aim is honestly to
serve the country as a whole.
Save the Trees.
A matter of really grent impor
tance, which is often overlooked in
the building of new towns, i
touched upon in a paragraph trom
the Klamath Falls Evening Ileralu
printed in another column ot this
It is the preservation of features
of natural beauty. Once destroyed
thev can never be restored. A lit
tle forethought will preserve them
to give those priceless little touches
that please homescekers and make
all the difference between raw new
ness and homelike attractiveness.
For years the city of Portland has
been conspicuous for its beauty
and l;o nelike character. It appeals
to the professional tourist and the
casual visitor as quite different
from Spokane and others ot the
boornmti coast cities. It seems to
the Easterner to be quite F.asuru
It is not raw, crude, irritating to
those who like civilization or re
pose. The difference is found in
the trees more than any other one
thing. It has plenty of trees while
most of the other towns are almost
destitute of such ornament. They
are toe young to have grown large
and ornamental shade trees.
Spokane is a marked example 0
the folly that caused destruction of
native trees, in the mad rush for
clearing and platting the laud and
selling town lots. A bird's eye
view of that city is most painful in
the lack of green relief which fine
trees afford. It would be worth
more than money to have preserved
this ready-made beauty feature in
stead of thoughtlessly and wantonly
adding to the cheerlecssness of the
scene by robbing It of nature's rob
ing, which was never too plentiful
Mere money crabbing Is not the
chief end of man. Comfort'ng and
cheerful surroundings add vastly to
the pleasures of healthy living.
The greenery of Bend's trees add
more to the attractions of the local
ity than most people appreciate,
beauty and reduce the town to stiff
and chterless suuictiesi, in the nb
setice of clear necessity, would be
not only niort tci-rctable vauduliMU,
but nn off. use nvalnst tlio higher
qualities of civilization which mnke
some communities more desirable
If the towns which arc famous
for their beauty were to be denuded
of their trees their reputation would
vanish at once. The parks are the
beauty spot of nil cities; can
one imagine them without their
stately old tree? Look at Boston,
New Haven, Princeton, Lexington
the list h almost endless they
are not afraid to have great onk!i
aud elms and maples in the very
middle ol their streets.
Pasadena is a noted Western ex
ample of a city which values its
trees, many of which are in the
streets and, moreover, are protected
with massive chains iiid stone
walls within which ferns wave aud
flowers bloom to chaim all be
holders. Even sidewalks and pave'
ments must be built around them
There is plenty of room also for
traffic and the trees do add gran
deur and nobility to the view, cast
a grateful simile and hofteti the
hard lines of the struggle for mon
ey, and it is so easy to let them stay
and serve as a benediction in our
harried and hurried lives.
