ing Owing to the fact that the is
sembly is a new institution in re
publican politics in this state, the
matter of suggesting candidates lor
the various county officials was de
ferred until after the state assembly
convenes at Portland 011 the 21st

state assembly should be permitted
to lead now, and in this wise at
leant the assembly procccdurc is di

tion system, which sent precinct
delegates to the county convention,
which nominated a set of county
officers and sent instructed dele
gates to the state and congressional
conventions, which in turn took
hold of national affairs.
The assembly did, however,
elect eighteen delegates to the state

J. S. I'arminter brings in very
roscy reports concerning crop con

every ranch in that district will
have bumper yields this season.
On the G. V. Reynolds place,
southwest of the stage station, win
ter barley is four feet high and
stands evenly and solidly all over
Mr. Reynolds' big fields. The
yield is estimated at about 75 bush
els to the acre. On the Beach dry

go 35 bushels an acre, while there
and on all the adjacent land oats

J. M. I.awtencc returned Sunday
from a two decks' trip to Portland
and Salem in the interest of the
general bill providing a method for
creating new counties, etc. The
affirmative argument was filed with
the Secretary of State on the 4th of
July and the petitions, bearing
13.500 names, were hied on the 7th,
both bcinic within the legal limit
of time. The names on the peti
tions were checked next day until
9345 had been passed. This being
much more than the required num
ber to give the measure a place on
the ballot, the petition was found
sufficient without checking further.
The bill thus put before the voters
has been under consideration a long
time. The first draft of it was made
at request of the senate committee
on counties at the session of 1905.
It was not acted upon then, how
ever, because county division ques
tions had been killed off at the late
day when this bill was ready, snd
the legislature thus lost interest in
it. Again in 1907 it wan put for
ward, but did not get a hearing.
So it was left to the initiative to
to get the matter before the people.
The bill is designed to insure proper
consideration of meritorious divi
sions and to discourage division
moves that are not based upon
It was found to be surprisingly
easy to get signatures to these peti
tions, nearly everybody commend
ing the bill. Though the time was
short the signatures represented

Sistkrs, Ok., July 13. For the
past ten days men have been work
ing in the woods near here with
surveying instruments and il is now
understood they are Hill railroad
surveyors. William Mason, who is
known to have been in the employ
of the Oregon Trunk Railway some
time ago, is in charge of the crew
of five men now operating south of
this point, and he says there is an
other party now working eastward
across the range to gain time.
At first Mason intimated that he
was sent out to cruise the timber on
the Road Grant rt-cently acquired
by interests allied with the Hill
railways. In talking with former
acquaintenccs in the past day or
two he admitted that he was -not
cruisius timber, but was making a
preliminary examination of the
country for railroad purposes.
So far as the examination has
proceeded it has held to a ridge
south of Sisters which reaches out
toward Bend. It is supposed to be
related to a line to be built across
New MWtoBe Bulk.
The Roberts Bros, who have a
ranch a mile southerly from Sisters
and considerable timber in the vi
cinity, have decided to build a saw
mill at once. Edward W. Roberts
has gone to Portland to order the
Bishop Paddock Arahi In Bead.
The Rt. Rev. Robert B. Paddock,
Bishop of Kastern Oregon, arrived
Sunday morning from Crescent,
returning here from a long tour of
the south. On Sunday evening the
Bishop held services in the church.
He will be here until Friday, dur
ing that time being the guest of
Mr. and Mrs. Drake.
