Ufllhieer Kyle Says New Contract WW
lie Let WlfHlfl JO Days.
Chief Engineer Kyle, ol the Ore
goti Trunk Hallway, has been mak
ing an examination of the southern
part of the state and In a dispatch
from Klamath Falls he is quoted as
making the definite announcement
that contract for the- construction
of the Oregon Trunk southward
from the north line of the Indian
reservation to Klamath Palis would
be let within 30 days. This seems
inevitably to mean resumption of
work on the line between Dend nnd
the reservation, though it is possi
ble it may be deferred until the
railroad reaches Bend and expen
sive freighting thus be saved. There
is already a railroad to Klamath
Full and work from that end to
meet the line from llend could be
At Dend and northward the rail,
road ivork N being crowded vigor
ously. Resident Engineer Scott's
camp was this week moved north
ward about four and one-half tulles,
to a point on the Swalley ditch near
the middle of the work he has in
charge. The matter of completing
the survey for the spur track to
run to the Pilot Ituttc dam and get
ting accurate description of the
land needed for right of way Iihh
required considerable time, but
that is now done and the spur will
be built with the other construction.
Banking and Trust Company
WcUter's Dictionary define 'he
word "Criticism" as "Detailed
examination and review."
J fa I BANK is constantly subject to "Criticism" otherwise
l the neonlc would hesitate to entrust their money to its
care. Our beautiful town of llend is subject to "Criti
cism" as wc all know, but it only helps us to grow, for
when people examine and' review what has taken place here in
the past year, they can't help but say llend has done wonders.
"Criticism" (detailed examination and review) is what
we watit. It helps us to improveIt makes a Iknk safeguard
its depositors. Kxniuiuc and review your money then bring it
to the Hank for safe keeping, where it will do the community
that you live in "Good."
Remember the Hank Is always willing to help you and we
want you to help us; thus, helping one another, we cau build a
mighty city. r

with gay Japanese lanterns, us was
tlit quaint court about which the
building is constructed, Ham
mocks were hung over the lawn
and rug and pillows scattered

Is Properly Handled.
The work of collecting cxhibitsl
for the Great Northern Railroad n
publicity experts is making splendid
licadwuy. Already a considerable
number have been gathered togeth
er at The Bulletin office and nt va
rious realty offices in llend.
While no definite committee or
organization has charge of the
work several JndividuuW who nave
been requested by the G. N. to
"deliver the goods. In conjunc
tion with the Realty Board and
other boosters, are doing their best
to assemble the samples.
It is earnestly requested that
ranchers will make it n point to
briug in samples grains, grasi.es
and root crops cither toThe Bulle
tin office, First National Hank, or
auy real estate office. These ex
hibits will be labelled with the
owner's name and address, prop
erly packed, and forwarded to
On Monday J. N. Hunter made
a trip in his car through the Pow
ell liutte country, bringing in a
splendid lot of exhibit, including
grain and grass samples furnished
by Allen Wilcoxen, Alvin Klggs,
H. A. Bussed, Henry Edwards,
George Yates and R. T. Johnson.
A. A. Dickey says that he will
make a trip of collection tomorrow.
Dr. U. C 1.0c Has volunteered to
take his car ou a similar trip, .while
Klmer Niswongcr and r-cvcral
others will make excursions for a
like purpose. Dr. P. II. Dcnccr
has brought in some splendid
samples, among which is second
cutting alfalfa, 33 inches high
cut 33 days after first cuttiug. J.
II. Buckholtz, among other ex
hibits, furnished alfalfa seven feet
high. G. W. Witner says he will
brine in a lot ol good stun Irora the
Tumalo country, and Fred Wal
lace promises the finest kind of an
exhibit from the Columbia South
ern irrigated lands. Receiver Red-
field will see that the D. I. & P.
ranches are well represented. I,.
D. Wicst has supplied remarkable
berry samples. Lee Davenport, W.
II. Stoats, 1$. W. Kicliardson, w.
R. Wilkiuson and many others will
help in the good work.
Iv. W. Richardson, who lives on
the Bear Creek' road about ixA
miles cast of Bend, this week cut
the second crop of alfalfa, from an
8-acre field this year. The two
cuttings yielded between 16 and 30
tons ot first-class hay. There will
be another good crop before the
This field has been in cultivation
four seasons. The first three years
the returns were not satisfactory,
but Mr. Richardson thought it evl
dent that the crop would make good
when it should get established, and
he is inclined to be persistent in
following tufugH until they either
succeed or fail. He doesn't like a
drawn battle. So he kept at it aud
has now demonstrated that alfalfa
may be successfully raised here.
(100D ROAD UP WEST SIDIi.
Through Private Uffort thta Route Is
Available for IHiWIC
The west side road up the Des
chutes is now one ol the most at
tractive out of Betid. A few weeks
ago Frank Robertson, John Steidl
aud J N. Hunter did a lot of work
getting stumps und logs and mov
able rocks out of the way and last
week A. M. Drake sent men and
teams up to-jemove rocks needing
blasting and to take several short
curves out of the road. All this
side of John E. Ryan's place at
The Tulles. From the southward
to Spring river Ryan himself has
made a good road, so now the go
ing is good up the west side to
the Crane Prairie bridge, just be
low the forks of the river, and the
route is through a park-like pine
forest nearly all the way, shady
and delightful and smoother tluu
tue east side road.
Mrs. Herring calls her new cafe
"The Sign of the Crane," and its
popularity prove9 that people huve
not forgotten her kuack of provid
ing good things. tf
He has the remainder ofthcfoity
now seeded in alfalfa and the future
looks good to him.
Receiver Red field, of the D. I. &
P. Co., has 80 acres of "ditch"
land 16 miles east of Bend. This
is the fourth year it has been
farmed. Until this season the re
sults were disappointing and even
last May there was no indication of
a successful crop. The unfavor
weather seemed to dwarf the clover
it is all sowed to red clover and
a bargain hunter could have
bought the place cheap, Ajittle
later the crop took a new start
and now there is being harvested
an immense yield of the finest hay
The clover stands waist high and
Is' thick and of most luxuriant
growth. This season's clover cut
will exceed 150 tons. The soil is
tamed or inoculated or somethiug
that makes it very productive and
it is evident that the clover will do
bininem there hereafter. And Mr
Red field would not sell for three
times- last spring's price.
As a potato-growing record this
from Guy Sears of Powell Uuttes is
worth recording: Last week be
sold $360 worth of potatoes from 3
actes and had fit 00 worth still un
due. Some advocate the use of
about 100 pounds of land plaster to
enrich the soil; on land so treated,
near Laidlaw, mammoth clover
yields 3 tons to the acre at a single
G. B. Wimcr reports 150 acres
of oats averaging more than five
feet in height. Mrs. K A. Griffin,
with a ranch near Bcud, has some
thing to say concerning other
crops: lettuce heads 15 inches in
diameter, peas four feet higu, and
onions that weigh a couple of

Deschutes Dollies Secured by Bend
Last Thursday J. N. Hunter,
W. H. Staats, "Bill" Brock and
Prince Staats returned from a fiish

LOCAL FLEET INCREASES.
Many Craft Appearing on Waters of
The New Lake.
Saturday last witnessed the
launching of Herbert Allen's new
craft, the "Elf," upon the waters
of the Deschutes. Charles Stan
borrough built the "goodly vessel,"
which is a clinker-built row boat
16 ft. in length, of beautiful design
and workmanship. Despite the
protests of interested friends no cer
emony accompanied the launching,
nor was any champagne or even
near beer broken over the prow of
the infant Dreadnaugbt as, sliding
from the ways of the Stanborrough
hip yard, she felt "a thrill of
life along her keel.
In the first days of this week two
more boats have been added to the
fast growing fleet on "Park Lake."
After a dusty cruise from Shaniko
a row boat arrived for Mrs. Drake.
Also a canoe, owned by J. T. Robin
son and G. P. Putnam. Counting
H.J. OverturPs "I.iza Jane," form
erly the property af A. F. Shireman,
and "Cleopatra's Barge," as the
work scow which has been at large
ou the pond since the completion of
the dam is styled, the local fleet
now numbers seven craft, not to
meotion several more which it is
reported are UHder consideration.
Four Wheel to Have Power.
R. E. Wooley reports that J. I.
Jones, who lives near Powell
uuttes, has perfected a mechanical
contrivance whereby the motive
power in automobiles may be ap
plied to all four wheels instead of
to but two, as at present. Not only
will the invention work well,
greatly increasing the motive power
obtainable from -an engine, but
even better stearing appliances can
be worked out than those now in
vogue, it is said. Mr. Jones has
applied for m patent for his inven
tion and has received from the
Patent Office favorable advices con
cerning his application.

manager of the O. W. I. Co., watt
in Bend list Thursday, together
with Fred Wallace, its local man
ager. D. C. Henny of Portland,
consulting engineer representing
the bonding house of J, G. White
& Co., of New York, has just com
pleted an examination of the en
tire project, with a view of report
ing on the feasibility of handling a
bond issue of the irrigation com
pany. Mr. Laurgaard says Mr.
Henny expressed great satisfaction
with what be saw and feels able to
report favorably upon tbe bonding
It is tbe desire of the company,
says Mr. Laurgaard, to issue bonify
to the amount of $1,000,000. Sev
eral concerns are figuring on the
matter and the company feels con
fident that it will be able to secure
the desired money very soon.
It is planned to build a concrete
diversion dam 011 the Tumalo one
mile below the bridge on the Bend
Tumalo road. Thence seven
miles of feed canal will be con
structed to "Tumalo Reservoir" at
the present Wimcr ranch, embrac
ing some 1405 acres. The maxi
mum depth will be 80 feet, and 32,
200 acre-feet of water will be
stored, preserving tbe entire flow
of the Tumalo creek. It is the
hope of the company to begin con
struction this Auturaa and have

About 17,000 acres of the pres

who have used water on 15 per cent
or more of their land will be en
titled to tbe new water rights by
paying the difference between the
old price and $25. All who have
not used water will have to pay an
increased lien of $50 an acre, with
credit for payments already made,
or have their contracts cancelled
and money refunded. Annual
maintenance will be either $1 or
$1 25. When 80 per cent of the
land is sold tne system is to oe
