. Laud in being sold, repair work
,'is commencing on the old counts

will mark high tide 111 new con
struction. So, then, is Oregon's
greatest irrigation enterprise active
ly and firmly on itit feet again, up
parcntly with all lit old diihculliw
udjtislcd and now with the substuu
tisil financial bucking of one ol the
country's strongest banking liuiie,
the J, G. White Co , who siicccm
fully have put through u great
number of similar irrigation enter
prise. As soon n he lias submitted the
balance sheet of the cash hook
probably this weekReceiver Red
field will be discharged.
The first construction work starts
at once. A crew of 30 men nud 30
teams, says Mr. Red field, under
Tom Lnngou, goes to work con
structiug lutcral "C" of the Central
Oregon Canal. This latcrul is
about eight tulles east of Mend, nud,
among others, waters tfTc ranches
of Cole Smith, Williams Hros., nud
1'rauk I.c May. Already 30 tennis
have been ordered and large quan
tities of equipment and supplies.
"Wc arc authorized to make nil
necessary repairs 011 the canals at
once," said Mr. Ucdficld in his
Hcnd office yesterday. "There

That want work, even this fall. At
first wc m.iy he a little shy on
equipment, but much of thin al
ready is on the way In from Port
land. There is construction work
enough near latcrul "C" to keep
that crew busy six mouths.
"A soon as pible and this
means practically nt once we
shall put another big Inrce repair
log the main canals, from which
water will be shut off temporarily.
Probably 60 men will be employed
until freezing weather mukes it
necessary to knock off."
When questioned regarding big
couitructlou work in the enrl
spring, Mr Ucdficld said, in part:
"It seems certain that tue North
Canal will he constructed just as
noil hh weather condition1 permit
1'rnlHihly 500.000 will be required
for that work, while the comple
tion of the ) stem will entail the
txiHMiililmc ol perhaps n million."
Mr. Redficld wild Hint it was
highly probable that surveying nud
engineering work on this project
would k resumed this Autumn
A re location ol surveys may re

Magazine Articles (live this State
. Very Valuable Publicity.
Oregon, and particularly Central
Oregon, has been favored with
much inng.ine publicity this
month. In lite November number
of Sunset magazine is a long nud
splendidly illustrated article by
Waller V. Wochlkc, setting lortti
the -opportunities nud development
of the state nt large.
Another article, by Randall K
Howard, in the Pacific Monthly, is
entitled "The Awakening of Cen
tntl Oregon " It deals in detail
with the transportation that the
railroads coming is nuking in the
interior country. Particularly the
free-la ml openings that await
homesteaders is dwelt upon.

Those Most Concerned are Against
Division Which is Favored by .
Redmond Boosters Alone. ?
Mr. Voter, do you know this?
Section 12 of the hill for the creation of the proposed
County of Deschutes rends: '
The county indue of Crook County sod Ihe county Iude of Detehutet
County, AND II. I'.JONHS Of DUSCItlTlW COUNTY are hereby unpointed
Ixmnl of coiillulitlouert to determine the value ol the diHinly building, in Crook
County, the amount of tndeblediieM, It nuy, to be mmmuinI by Iecliule County,
and paid 10 Crook, nud the amount ol money that liny be due from Crook County
to Detehutet County, under tbe lermt of Suction r I ol tint Uw.
This means thttt Ihe DECIDING VOTE is in the
hands of Dechutes County, Hint 11 REDMOND MAN is the
third member of a board in whose hands rests the absolute
decision in the matter of dividing up the financial and prop
erty holdings of Crook County.
This is a most extraordinary and unjust joker. In
other county division bills this board at least is chosen
justly; the third member is impartial.
Air. Taxpayer, it's up to you.
A great majoiity probably four fifths of the voters of Orook
Comity arc opposed to the schsuit for the creation of Dtschutes
County as proposed hy initiative petition, to be carved out of the parent
county and to have for its comity seat the town of Redmond. More
over, the majority of the coplc in the proposed new county do not
favor its creation.
H.1I1I facts, these. HJt truthful. And their unadorned veracity
may be substantiated by any fair minded nun who cares to, or can, ex
limine the local sentiment. The reason for their publication is this;
;t lutse report lias been circulated, and apparently has gained wide
crcdaucc, that Crook County as a whole favors the scheme, thai the
jwople of proposed Deschutes County favors it, and that Bend scc no
reason for opposing it.
In the state pamphlet, the Redmond Commercial Club in its argu
ment favoring the creation ol Deschutes County, goes 011 record in part
us follows; "Crook, the parent county of the proposed Couuty of
Deschutes, is favorable to the creation of the new couuty."

Facts again. At a mass meeting nt I'rineville, county seat of
Crook County, June 38th, 1910, the i'rineville Commercial Club unani
mously adopted resolutions absolutely condemning the new scheme and
promising I'riueville's heartiest opposition to it.
The Madras Commercial Club adopted similar resolutions. Madras
is the principal town in tbe proposed new county: its people and its
press arc uVhtiug the scheme-to the best of their ability, lknd, second
town ol Crook County, is opposed. Protests are heard from Laidluw
and Sisttrs and from many olLer towns and jeclioiis ot" proposed Des
chutes Couuty. In short, Redmond, the proposed county seat of tbe
proposed county, alone desires its-creation.
Of the 10,163 names upon the initiative petition for the creation of
Deschutes County 217 were obtuiued in Crook Couuty, including Red
This is not the proper time to divide Crook County. Tbe western
half of the county, hitherto practically undeveloped, is being pierced
by two great railroads. The population centers arc uncertain. A (it
vision which might be appropriate now well might prove itself a bowl
ing injustice after u few ,cars of development.
Hut the boundaries of the proposed new couuty were conceived ap
parently with little pretense of thatihtful seeking for the greatest good
to the greatest number. They ure uibitraiily run, without regard to
logical physical boundary lines, The new couuty would Ik: a benefit.
