"Court house steel work badly
delayed," writes the Portland Tele
gram, ilovv ubout the steal work?
The "Old Guard" down lu York
State seems to have monkeyed with
the buzz saw when it sought to
humiliate one T. R.

Puzzle: Why is it so many or
dinances pass the Bend Common
Council unanimously, or prac
tically so, and yet fail to find one
friendly voice when vetoed by the
Mayor? Wc dislike to ask disa
greeable questions, but this one is
put up to The Bulletin and wc re
spectfully pass it on.
The significance of the Oregon
primary election is fairly plain:
No "assembly" rule will be toler
ated. Of course the political job
bers and crooks will seek to take
advantage of the popular revolt
against ring rule and we shall find
many of them hereafter strongly
avowing their fealty to popular
The one anti-statcmenM candi
date who was successful, Bower
man, was frowned upon by the
Portland Oicgonian. All the rest
of the distinctly "assembly" can
didates bit the dust, not excepting
the invincible McArthur, private
secretary of the Governor and
whirlwind campaigner. No clean
er sweep was ever recorded.
Roscburg has the Secretary of
State, renominated by the Repub
licans, and the Attorney General
nominated for a third term by the
same party. It made a brave
fight for Governor, the most
worthy of them all, and if it bud
succeeded the seat of government
might hare been moved to the
Umpqua town and the statebousc
in Salem rented for a skating rink.
SOAIGTIIINQ TO THINK AllOtTr;
In discussing the livestock ques
tion Cashier Hudson of the First
National Bunk of Bend submits
these highly pertinent remarks:
The immediate llend country did not
this year raise tufficlcnt cattle (or home
consumption In our meal markets, and
has not since I have been, here two
Tills land will raise clover, alfalfa and
other crops to that every farmer could
feed out a few cattle to kock! advantage.
The best countries and the most proscr
ous are found In Illinois and Iowa where
they "feed out" In small number, there

cattle, a uood price for their hay and
Krain, ami also what they have found to'
be very essential the manure back on
It seems to tne this is dlsttned to be a
dairy country to a larjje deurec; the
natural increase in population, the
railroad work and the further fact that
next fall 191 1 we will have transpor
tation, so that our cattle can be mark
eted in Portland, where Swift is put
tiiiR in a 3,000,000 packing plant, will
auure a Rood market.
In a letter just received from the
Pacific Northwest Livestock Asso
ciation the same subject is dealt
with in this wise:
The question that confronts the stock
man and farmer of the TaclGc Northwest
is the necessity for increased livestock
production. It is not good business that
the packer of the Coast Cities find it
necessary to send millions of dollar
each year to the Missouri River, for live
animals, and that such great quantities
of money are taken out of this section
for provision and packing bouse pro
duct sent here from the Central State.
There is one thing certain; the en
tire energies of our people must be di
rected alonu better lines of farming and
livestock breeding and feeding.
Bcud is this week sending $i,-
500 of Oregon money back to the
Mississippi Valley to put livestock

that may later be shipped to Ore

opportunity to be self-supporting,

Is it to be Metoles, Metolus or
Metolius? Now that things are
taking definite shape in this
country some attentiou ought to be
given its nomenclature. Oregon
has too many names that smack of
cirelessness or illiteracy. Sumpter
would scorn an intimation that it
was not named foY Fort Sumter,
but look at the variance in spelling.
Milwaukie, Oregon, was named
after Milwaukee, Wis. Those who
named Allegany, Oregon, thought
they had Alleghany, Pennsylvania,
lor a forerunner. The town known
as The Dalles is incorporated under
the laws of Oregon as Dalles City.
And so on through a long list.
These variances do not constitute
crimes, of course; nobody can be
sent to jail for them. But they do
impeach the scholarship and accu
racy of those responsible for them
and it certainly does no people any
good to advertise illiteracy or intel
lectual slovenliness in so prominent
and permanent a manner.

As to Quality.
All manufacturers of prepared roofing have two or more
grades, the cheaper grades being made of the less expensive
materials. While making a serviceable roof, these cheaper
' grades do not have the lasting qualities of the first grades,
and should not be accepted by a builder on the understand
ing that he is getting first grade material.
Wc have the first grades of the two largest manufactur
ers of roofing in the world the RUUGROID and the
OENASCO. These brands are required in government speci
fications, which is a guarantee of their superiority over

In the service of the rum power.
A combination of petty mys
tery and querulous complaining
will kill a good cause. Here is
one of the causes that may well
pray to be delivered 'from its fool
friends. Of course they aim to
benefit the community and human
lty at large; few would find fault ,
with their high motive. But they
lack the saving grace of common
sense in practical affairs. And
this fundamental infirmity gives
undue leverage for the other ex
treme of society to keep things
Straw for Sandy Roads.
W. J. Buckley, the Redmond
expressman plying between Sbatii
ko and Bend, has started the
Madras and Redmond people to
strawiug the soft places in the
roads, each town working to the
northward. Straw mends the
chuck holes and sandy stretches
better than any other material and
it is both cheap as a commodity
and usually to be had convenient
to the places where it is needed.
By this improvement it is expected
traffic will be won back to the
Madras route, which had been J
avoided since the roads became soft I
and cburky. Mr. Buckley sng-l
gests that Betid might assist the
movement by similarly patching a '

This is wLy we can sell the first quality roofing at the
price usually made on cheaper grades; and we can sell the
cheaper grades at correspondingly lower prices. Wc carry
both grades and can save you money on either.
