Country Press Thinks Neither Senator
Can Be Re-elected West Strong
For ChamberU'Vs Place.
A careful political census taken among the country press of Oregon
by Thu Ilulletln Indicates an almost unanimous opinion that Wilson will
recelvu thu state's support for the Democratic presidential nomination,
the probability that Tuft will carry thu state, and the fact that more than
half of thu Oregon press is of thu opinion that neither Chamberlain nor
Itournu can Imj rc-dccled if he tried. Furthermore, West Is picked by
thu majority of the pupem to succeed Chamberlain, while Ellis, Malarkcy
und Lowell run about even as choice of successor to Bourne, nhould the
Senator drop out, with one paper opining that Ijiflerty may fill the bill
"If he get the girl."
About bO pamrs answered the questions sunt out by The Bulletin.
Not a single reply was received from Crook County, apparently indicat
ing that thu press of this section isn't troubled with xj(jllcal opinions.
For congrtMWinan in the new second, or Eatitorn Oregon district,
Busk and Hatvley seum duttinod to share honors for probable victory,
according to the replies received, although a multitude of other candi
dates are suggested, among thuin being Butler, Ellis, Mahonuy, fierce
and Donegan of Burns. Many paixjrs in the district, however, vonturo

a scant half dozen see u chance at thu nomination for Harmon, while none
see chance of victory for thu Ohio Judge, an opinion shared by the three

"STAY IN IHJND."
Amiany, Ore., Aug. 30, 1911.
Please forward paper to mo
at Albany, Ore., and give Bend
people my advice, which is to
stay in Bend as it Is a better
country, In my opinion, than
this. It Is very unhealthy here,
cmd potatoes, etc. are better In
Bend than here, as the climate
is by far nicer. Expect to be
back myself soon.

D L. McKay Would Rather Pay for
Cord Woud Than Have lhrm (Jo.
To Thu Editor:
It is a howling shame tfiat Bend's
most beautiful asset, its fine trees,
Is being destroyed, apparently when
ever there is the slightest chance.
When n man comes in from the out
side and sees it, he can't help being
disgusted, If anyone wants wood,
I'll be glad to present him with a
few cords any time, rather than
hove the trees which are on public
property cut down.
My reason for dropping you this
note is on account of seeing that
beautiful tree on the south end of
Wall Street, which took hundreds
of years 4o grow to its present size,
ruthlessly cut down, whon it was an
object of real attraction, and, I be
lieve, In no wise in the way. Being
interested in the wolfnre of Bund
and tho retaining of its natural
beauties, I venture to ask you to

BUYS LOCAL URICK.
The Overturf -Davis-Miller Co. has
bought all the brick at the yards on
the Barney Lewis homestead west
of town of Fred Van Matre and is
now having them hauled to its
temporary warehouse in town.
With faces clean and hair combed
neatly, in the most accepted schol
astic style, carrying new books,
tablets and pencils, the boys and
girls of Bend tramped through the
mud yesterday morning to tho
school houEo and entered upon
another term. The first day's en
rollment was affected by the rain
and cool weather nnd the attendance
did not reach as high a figure as
wa3 expected. The total enrollment
was 155, 12-1 in the grades and 31
in the High School. Sixteen chil
dren who had never been to school
before were on hand and were
started on the road to knowledge by
Miss Sidner. The second grade en
rollment was 11, third 18 and fourth
The only room crowded was the
principal's, with four scats lacking.
These have been supplied from a
small room which will not be used
this year. This is the room that
had to be heated with an oil stove,
making the air very unheal thful.
The new room In the attic, which
will be finished by the 10th, will
take the place of the small quarters.
In the senior class are four boys
and one girl, one more than gradu
