Rascals, Kcp Out.
The dictum has Rone out from
Crook county that misrepresenta
tion and fraud in the sale of real es
tate will not be countenanced by
the business ujcu of the county.
Wildcat townsites and like scheme;
arc to be tabooed and shown up in
their proper colors if the commer
cial organizations of the county arc
able to do it. The commercial club
at Prinevillc started the movement
against these dishonest tactics and
now all the similar organizations ol
the county have united in an en
deavor to make impossible all form
of fraud, chicanery and cheating; in
the sale of Crook county real estate
insofar as it has to do with the
floating of townstte propositions.
This is a most commendable move
and should receive the support of
all honest men.
The direct cause of this action
are extravagant and mi-leadm,:
statements made by the promoter
of the Hillman towusite. If current
reports are true, their literature
abounds in fraud and misrepresen
tation, and as a tesult many people
have bought lots in Hillman who
can ill afford to lose what thev have
invested, many of the purchasers of
lots being widows and poor work
ing men and women.
That sort of business Is pernic
ious in the extreme. It is con
temptible. The man who, through
deliberate fraud and lies, fattens his
own pockctbook ofTthe earnings of
widows and of the hardworking
laboring class is a most contempti
ble rascal wherever found. It is to
be hoped he will not be allowed to
thrive in Crook county. Hundreds
of honest people looking for invest
ments will be attracted to this sec
tion during the coming months.
There is room for all of them and
there are openings for a great num
ber of legitimate business enter
prises. It would be most unjust to
allow many of these people to be
duped and robbed by wildcat real
estate schemes. After being fleeced
they would leave the country bitter
ly disgusted and would be justified
in giving Central Oregon a most
unsavory reputation. This the
commercial clubs of the county will
not allow if they can help it. By
their recent action they have
posted a sign warning rascals to
keep out. Those of that class who
are wise will heed the warning.
The reason that may be causing
( you to wish to sell will likewise
cause you to seek an early sale.
We have good outside connec
tions that willennblc us to han
dle readily almost any Rood
town property with us.

The men at the head of affairs in
Crook county hold out every en
couragement to legitimate business
undertakings, but they have open
condemnation for wildcat specula
tion, fraud and deception. They
have" announced in unmistakable
terms that all branches of the com
ing development must be along
T. H. Sbevlin, the Minneapolis
lumber baron, when in Bend two
years ago, said that Rend would
have 25,000 people within 10 years
after transportation is provided. It
begins to look as though Shevlin
might be a prophet.
The many prophecies made as to
Bend's future will all be fulfilled.
The second city in Oregon will be
found in a few years on the banks
of the Deschutes river and clustered
about the foot of Pilot Butte.
A block of Bend real estate 300
feet square sold this week tor
$30,000. Not a bad price for a
small patch of that "worthless Bend
Even in Chicago, the metropolis
of the Middle West, people are talk

AUNV NEW IDEAS.
And now it is a woolen mill that
the owner wants to establish at
Bend. This is an industry forlH
which Bend affords an ideal loca
tion. Situated right in the heart of
the great wool growing section ot
Oregon, with plenty of water and
power, and with ample railroad ac
commodations, a woolen mill at
Bend would possess, to a very large
extent, those advantages necessary
to success. Bend people have long
expected that woolen mills would
be one of the future industries of
the town. With the railroad now
assured, the movement has already
started this way and an owner of a
woolen mill will soon be at Bend to
look over the situation.

New Plan (or UcnJ lloottlng.
About a month has elapsed since I left
Rendand cameeaMward. llcfort another
month h patsed I hope again to have
opportunity to read The Bulletin on a
Wednesday evening, instead ol the (ol
lowing Tuesday, at In now the cafe.
I'rom your column and from those, ol
the Oregonlan, 1 have kept in touch
with the development of affairs In Ore
gon, and pnrtieulirly in the Bend coun
try. And although it looks a hit ai il
the daily Oregonl!! ha rather neglected
you of late, I want to congratulate you
upon the splendid advertising we got in
the New Year number it look all
Bend to me. Ami the talk Joe Hunter
ha handed out are the bet ever Hoard
of Trade ought to give him a salary.
Dut it alt sounds good the continued
railroad activity, the booming and the
great interest focussed upon the country
even if reading It one know it i
practically nothing in comparison to
what will come tbi next sesson. There
if a lot to be done, and Bend will do it,
with The Bulletin, the Board of Trade
and the cititent behind the work. In
fact, I see no reason why 1910 should
not prove the greatest year of develop
ment that the Bend country ha ever
teen if we alt get out and work for It
Which lead me to venture the remark
that your transcontinental secretary of
the Board of Trade has primed himself
with a bunch of new idea in publicity
and development work, and looks for
ward to a return to greatly enlarged
Now a brief word concerning my trip,
believing it may be of some interest.
In coming Kast, St Paul, Minneapolis
and Chicago were stopping place. At
the first of these cities the exhibit of
Oregon and Washington product under
the auspices of the Great Northern Rail,
way are of great interest and value for
home and investment seekers; at Chi
cago, I was lorlunate cnougu to make
connections with the great land show.
My Kastern visit has been varied by a
trip to the old home of several Benders,
North Carolina, and by a very Interest
ing stay in Washington, 1). C. At the
capltol I was fortunate in meeting many
men who are interested in the far West,
ond was able to ghr thrill much desired
Information concerning our country.
