As reixutcd in 11 recent issue of
The Hullctin, the work from Mud
tus to llciul is of nn exceedingly
light diameter., three uuinths be
ing an ample time allowance for its
completion, according to the an
thorltalivc statements of cngincero
familiar with the territory. As the
I lill oIIicIuIm announce the present
construction well under way und
arc confident of its completion to
Madras liy autumn, the significance
of the roud's immediate continu

two and two together, it now hcciiis
more of a probability thnu a possi

The contest for the best high

witty offerings lioin clever contrib

its sorrow that it is unable to ac

the names of their respective
authors. Next week n issue, how
ever, will announce the names of
the fortunate scholars.
The contest was inaugurated by
Miss Kuth Held, the principal of
the high fichool, together with Miss
Market. Cash prizes were offered
for the best song and yell submit

high school pupils immediately at
tacked the poetical problem.

Hvidenre of the efficiency of the

fact that its certificate of graduation

Poktivnd, Or., March 23.
Judge K. S. Bean, of the U. S. dls-
trict court, yesterday afternoon
granted the petition for n receiver
for the Deschutes Irrigation &
Power Co and announced that the
receiver would be appointed Thurs
day. C. M. Red field, the present
chief engineer of the company, W
I. Benham of Tacoma, and one of
the Rea brothers, of Madras, are
talked of for the appointment on be
half of the company. The bond
holders' candidates are not known.
This Is a suit In TJ S. court In
which L. G. Addison and Prank
R. Sliinn, of Columbus, Ohio, as a
committee representing the holders
of something more than $300,000
of the first mortgage bonds of the
Deschutes Irrigation & Power Co.,
are plaintiff's, and the D I & P.
Co. and the Merchants Savings &
Trust Co., Trustee, of Portland,
arc defendants. The gist of the
complaint is that the company Is in
solvent; that it ba'd attempted to
give later liens priority over the
first mortgace, thereby committing
or permitting a fraud upon the
holders ol the first bonds (the How
ard contract being the chief of thes
later claims); and that the trustee
had not done its duty toward pro
tection of the first bonds, and could
not properly act as trustee for tbe
two incompatible interests. The
case was argued three weeks ago
and since then voluminous briefs
were filed by both sides.
In the argument the defendants
admitted that nothing bad ever
been paid into the D. I, & P. treas
ury on its capital stock of 2,500,
000, and that the corporation had
been insolvent from the beginning
down to the date of the latest con
tract with the state, June 17, 1907,
when the state land board allowed
an increase of lien from an average
ol $10 an acre to an average of $26
an acre. They contended that tbe
carrying of that contract, and the
Benham Falls contract for 74,000
acres at an average Hen of $50 an
acre, to completion, would place
tbe company in position to pay all
its debts, including the first bonds
The plaintiffs showed that in the
meantime their security was being
undermined by operation of the
Howard contract, by which enor
mously excessive profits would go
to the Howard syndicate instead of
the company's treasury, and the iu-
Seattle Men Buy L. D. What's Ac
tion On Market ImmedMtefy.
C. W. Melville, representing a
number of Seattle capitalists, yes
terday completed a deal with L. D.
WIcst whereby WJcstoria, tbe new
ly platted townsite, passed into Mr.
Melville's possession. Otic hun
dred acres were affected by the sale
and this amount, in lots 50x140
feet, will be placed on tbe market
at once. No figure are given.
Seattle, it is understood, will be tbe
principal selling point, although
the local field will be covered and
Mr. Melville, after inspecting tbe
entire Deschutes Valley, is not
backward in stating that in his es
timation Bend "leads tbe field."
Seattle buyers, be says, are vastly
interested in .the local possibilities.
After a fewd Jya trip south and
east from here? Mr. Mellville re
turns to Seattle.
The Weather at Bend.
Observor Minor's weatlter
shows a mean maximum of 32
above zero jpr January and 41 for
Pebrnary. Tbe mean minimum
for January was 17 and for Febru
ary 15. The warmest weather in
January was 56, on the 30th, and
In February 53, on tbe 12th. Tbe
coldest temperature in January was
13 below zero, on tbe 3d, and in
February 6 below on the 2d. Tbe
snowfall in January was 7 inches
and in February 4 inches.
So far this month the highest
temperature was 66 on the 17th
and i8tb, and the lowest 20 above
on tbe 8th. Killing frosts have
occurred only four tiroes this
montb, thus far. Crocuses, violets,
manzanita and other spring blos
soms have been out for a week.
Part of the building now occu
pied by Landlord O'Kane, of tbe
Bend Hotel, and formerly used as a
bowling alley, bas been remodeled
as an annex to the hotel. Twelve
comlortable rooms have been in
stalled, which arc now being paint
ed, papered and furnished, making
a total of 42 guest rooms.
The commodious 20-room addi
tion to the Pilot Butte Inn, at tbe
north end of Wall street, is searing
completion, and promises soon to
materially add to the comfort of
tbe many visitors who are crowd
ing into town. Certainly present
indications point to a rush of new'
comers that will tax to the utmost
the capacity of Bend hotels, despite
their enlarging, and Bend dwell
ings, increase they in number ever
