Probably few of us realize that
the first expedition through Cen
tral Oregon was made but 85 years,
ago. In 1824, and again in 1825,
Peter Skene Ogden, on behalf ol
Hudson's Bay Co., led a party from
the Columbia up the Dechutes and
across the present homestead coun
try to the Snake River on the Idaho
line. The diary kept by Ogden on
the second trip is published in the
December issue of the Oregon His
torical Society's Quarterly. Strange
indeed will be the contrast ol the
country encountered by the sturdy
explorer and that soon to be seen
by the traveller from the windows
of Central Oregon trains.

The only actual fatality yel re
carded as the result of the late cen
mis is that connected with an up
rising of Indians in New Mexico,
who appear to have been made
desperate by the enumerator's at
tempt to tabulate them. In our
own part of the world there is a
lull ia the strenuous storm. Neither
Seattle nor Portland is Mire of "just
where they stand," and especially
the former seems actively preparing
a soft place to alight wberrtbe sta
tistics show the final sad truth.
Of'coune If the Slate Grange Assem

Of course if the Oregontan should
direct its pudd'uhead criticisms
against those it, deems inconsistent
with regard to its holy "assembly,"
it will beg the people's pardon for
its own scatterbiaiued course. The
only difference is that the Grunge
is rational and consistent and docs
not act or pnblisk lies.
The Grand Old Party has been
"cemented" together, we are told,
by a midnight conference at the
White House. That's about the
proper hour for such a deed. The

robbers now masquerading in thr
guise of "party regularity" is brok

Geo. I Rodgers, Mayor of Sa

Mr. Rodgers says he cannot be
quoted as too enthusiastic concern
ing bend and the adjacent country
"Central Oregon, when developed,
will equal if not surpiss the Wil
lamette Valley in wealth-producing
capability. The marvelous
state of development of the Bend
country, isolated as it has been
from transportation, bears remark
able witness to the magnitude of its
future once the railroads open the
way to outside markets. I regard
Bend as occupying a truly wonder
lul position the pivot of all Cen
tral Oregon. With its enormous
power possibilities, its timber and
agricultutal lands, and its situation
on the new railroad map, Bend is
destined to become the greatest Or
egon city east of the Cascades."
Later in the summer Messrs
Smith and Rodgers intend to guide
into Bend seven! auto loads of
.friends. The trip may be made
across the mountains.
