Jntncs J. Hill, the man who has done most for
Central Oregon, will be our guest on October 5, and
a tremendous crowd will be within our city. It
therefore behooves every loyal citizen of Bend to be
stir himself mightily. We can and we will if I
everybody does his part make this a celebration
worthy of the great event it will commemorate. Let
everyone write friends inviting them to attend.
Decorate your homes and business houses, cleanup,

Mail service in Central Oregon
hns long leen the acme of irregu
larity and uncertainty, but it seems
to be getting even worse. Whore
the trouble is or who is to blame, it
would probably take several Sher
lock Holniescs to determine. Uncle
Sam has ever been stone deaf to
any entreaties for improvements,
nnd the long-suffering public must
continue to boar all sort of un
necessary delays, some of these
often causing loss of money.
To illustrate in regard to the dis
patch of mails: A few days ngo
we received a letter from the Har
ney County News saying copies of The
Bulletin of August '23 nnd 30 reach
ed there the evening of September
6. These papers were mailed here
at 6 o'clock on the 23rd and 30th,
respectively, going to I'rineville and
from there by stage. Editor Dnvoy
wrote to send them out to the main
line and around by Uaker.
Again: On Saturday, the 16th.
copies of Uie Lakeview Examiner of
September 7 were put in the
boxes of subscribers at Bend.
Two weeks for mail to go from
Bend to Burns, nine days for mail
to come from Lakeview to Bend.
That's going some. But what's the
use to "kick"? An inquiry or a
protest to the I'ostoffice Depart
ment would be replied to about
January 15, 1912, and then would
propably say: "Matter has ' been
referred to proper authorities for
investigation," a polite way of say
