With tfals number The Bulletin
starts dpoM lis eighth year of publi
cation. As a newspaper is a semi
public institution, a brief statement
of the controls through which this
publication has passed may not be
deemed out of place on this oc-
When the first number of The
Bulletin was taued, Mux Luedde
mnn, of Antelope, was owner, Don
Rea, of Madras, editor, and A. K.
Kennedy, of Prineville, printer
On the first of the succeeding Att
gust, J. M. Lawrence, then U S
Commissioner at Bend, bought a
haH intercut in the paper, which he
conducted from that time until his
departure to be receiver of the
RosebtarK land office, January i,
1906. There was ao change in tht
ownership of the Mper until May
1, 1908. when Mr. Lawrence sold
h4 half interest te Mr. J.ueddeman,
and immediately, through K A
Baldwin, the paper passed into the
possesstoa of Fred S. Stanley, of
Portland, who held if until the first
of last February, when he sold to
Dob Steffi. Oa the first of the
present month, the property was
purchased, by George Palmer Put
nam, of New York, who came to
Head last year (not the George P.
Putnam of Medford, Orcfeou ) With
htm is associated J.M. Lawrence,
who resigned his office at Roscburg
to return to Bend. From the time
Mr. Lawrence went to Roseburg
until his return the paper was con
ducted by Charles D. Rowe, but it
was not owned by residents of
Bend. It Is bow for the first time
owned aed mwMgcd entirely by
It has not been the habit of The
Bulletin to boast of what it has
done or make large promises for
the future. Its record is before the
public every week. It is very hope
ful of the future and intends to be
a factor in the development of the
Central Oregon region, ever striv
ing with what energy and intelli
gence it can cowmand to give high
character to the new civilization
planted ia this rotote part of the
republic and In promote, every bene
JkiaLinUtititi. -It-will denbtlcas fall
short of its Ideal few attain that
but it will exert itself to maintain a
high standard of excellence and to
serve tn peopte adequately as a
local newspaper. Upon this ground
it aks the support of the public.
The BuMetin will not be found a
mealy-BMttthed, mollycoddle news
paper. It has opinions orr public
questions and will express them in
its editotial columns, not in its
news. It tries to be right, never
shuts its mind against the truth.
Its columns are always open for
proper discussion. Contributions
of general interest are cordially in
vited and are assured respectful
m treatment, whether they accord
"with the views expressed by this
paper or not. The. Bulletin has no
relations, political, religious, in
dustrial or social, to t prevent it
from being the vehicle' of honest
Hews and honest comment upon
matters, of current interest. It
stands for the best industry and in
telligettee ef the community.

birds sing their matins kud vespers,

crocmes and violets are blooming

not be beaten in good old Linn
county. So convincing is the worth
of this country that two great rail
roads are racing construction to get
here. Yet, tastes wjll differ nnd it
is not worth while to quarrel with
those who see no beauty in nature,
no honesty in man, who uavc no
pride or hope. But we are mighty
sorry for such afflicted souls.

There will be learned and coily
discussions upon this problem of
vast national insignificance; and
enough will be expended, to reclaim
land sufficient for a community, if
otherwise employed. Next, may
hap, the transcendent minds of the
congressional sagas will focus upon
the matter of compulsory nine foot
bed sheets for the nation, or the
regulation of the capacity of the
hitherto elastic near beer bottle.
But in the meantime tax bills will
be as regular as ever.
