SPOKANU WINS ITS NUHT.
With the signal victory for com
rnitsion government in Spokntit
recently another city of the otu
hundred thousand population cln
g-tincd the ranks ol the. American
municipalities to substitute thi
moderu busiuess rule for the old
Des Moines and Houston have
fully demonstrated the advnntagc
of the new rule for large Allies, nitd
it was the evidence furnished from
the records of these cities that in
fluenced the people of Spokaue to
adopt commission government.
Smaller cities have iuund in tlu
commission plan the remedy foi
the waste and neglect that character
ize the ward system everywhere,
bat the pronounced benefits ol
business rule have been all tht
more noticeable in the larger cities.
The free citizens of every cit
are beginning to understand that
commission rule means free govern
ment for them, and the Spokant
victory is merely another evideuct
that twilight lias come for the old
political brokerage system.

that his plans failed, for wc do not
care to have any such business men
The long talked of postal savings
banks arc at last in operation.
About 50 0ciH-d for busiuess in
XMrious parts of the country yester
day, Ktnmath Palls being the only
city in Oregon having one. The
number will be increased as soon
as Congress makes the necessary
Less than 40 per cent of the
women in Spokaue voted at the
recent municipal election. Still we
hear the suffragists desiring the
right tj vote.
What has happened to the arcs
that were to be put up soon after
the Council authorized the signing
of the light contract?
When is u cit charter going to
be drawn up by the Council?
A SEPTIC SYSTEM.
In another column of this issue
is a communication upon a ver
timely subject. The Council has
been notified that complaints bae
been made against the sewage sys
tem in use in Bend, and it is but a
question of time until a change will
have to be made, and why not be
gin planning for it nov.
It is claimed that the Deschutes
River, as the natural drain, will
have to receive all sewage from the
city. The Bulletin believes that a
sewer can be built down the river,
crossing the hog-back ridge, about
a mile and a half north of town, to
carry the pipe out onto the sage
brush land. A septic system would
dispose of all matter, and the over
flow, chemically pure, could be
used for irrigation, as is done with
many septic systems iu the middle
Such a system would be expen
sive, but it would be far better to
begin the preliminary work now,
and by the time the council decides
on a system means for building it
could be secured.
HILL'S APPROPRIATION FOR 1911.
Of the $14,000,000 expended by
the Hill System in Oregon in 1910,
over $9,000,000 was used in the
construction of the Oregon Trunk
line up the Deschutes.
There are six tunnels through
solid rock, aggregating 3550 feet in
length, in the no miles between
the Columbia and Madras. The
elevations above sea level are 140
feet at the Columbia and 3316 feet
at Madras, yet the ruling grade be
tween these pointsis six tenths of
one per cent, or 31.6 feet per mile.
The maximum curvature is six de
grees. If the Oregon Trunk line re
ceives the same proportion of
money in 191 1 as in 1910, consider
ing the lighter work, the $15,000,
000 to be expended by the Hill
System iu Oregon in 191 1 will
build more mileage than the in
ventive reporters built in 1910.
CRKSCRNT, Ore., Dec. 31 At recent
meeting the Cretcent Commercial Club
was reorganized with the following offi
cers: President, P. C. Robinson; Secre
tary. K. C. Rourk: Treasurer, J. L.

Thomas and William Nichols, and an
other committee J. U Ringo, G. W
Anderson and H. G. Rourk Mas selected

Crescent's first Christmas was fittingly
celebrated at the Crescent Inn where
two Urge trees loaded with prrsents

At the home of K. G. Rourk another

of the town. Mr. Rourke distributed
the presents. A bob sleigh ride finished
C. L. Sweet and Prank Uamner, who
recently undertook a trip to Klamath
Palls to appear as witnesses in a murder
case before the grand jury, were forced
to return after spending five days at
tempting to get over the summit of the
mountais. They were compelled to
abandon their team at the home of a'
rancher near Klamath Marsh, and re-
turned on snow shoes to Crescent. They j
have been summoned as witnesses in the
trial which begins January 10, and will
likely have to make the trip around by

story building on Main Street. Early in
the spring his son will open a drug store.
