RUALIZINU A ORUAfll OFYOAKS
No more will we speculate on the
coming of n railroad to Bend. It is
here and over its rails will run the
trains of two great systems, the
Hill and the Harriman. The past
decade has seen railroad after rail
road built to Bend on paper. The
files of the old Deschutes Echo, now
no more, and The Bulletin show
that the Oregon Eastern, Corvallis
& Eastern, Columbia Southern,
Great Southern, Hood River and
many other railroads were "headed"
for Bend. Perhaps they were, but
they never got here as any one
knows of. In the Deschutes Echo,
which was published in the part of
the city now known as Deschutes
Addition and before Bend was a
town, wc find this item, issue of
June 6, 1903: "Will we have a
railroad? When" That question
is now answered after nine years,
three months and twenty-five days:
"On September 30, 1911." Let us
all the pioneer settlers of the
"Farewell Bend" country and the
recent comers rejoice together to
morrow and Friday and shout "Long
live Jim Hill, the railroad builder,"
for through his efforts a dream of
years is realised.
OOT WHAT WU W UNT AFTER.
In an editorial headed "Will Have
to Hand It to Bend," the La Pine
Inter-mountain last week spoke in a
most complimentary way of the get-up-and-hustle
of Bend in arranging
for the Railroad Day celebration.
It gives us credit for doing more
than we actually did, for the Com
mercial Club sent no one to Port
land except A. 0. Hunter.
Another mistake of the Inter
Mountain is that of "the persistent
knocking of its curbstone real estate
dealers against other towns and
districts in this part of the state."
Bend people, as a whole, have al
ways been boosters, first for their
own town of course and then for
Central Oregon in general but
never knockers. The so-called
"prejudice and aversion against
Bend" is nothing more than pure
jealousy shown by other less pros
perous and progressive towns,
whose inhabitants have lied and
knocked without let-up, to the
detriment of themselves, however,
more than to Bend. If anyone
should desire concrete evidence of
who some of the knockers against
Bend are, the letter files of the
Ccommorcia! Club will show. The
Inter-Mountain says, in full:
"In spite of the prejudice and
aversion against. Bend which pre
vail in some quarters justly cre
ated because of the persistent knock
ing by its curb-stone real estate
dealers against other towns and
districts in this part of the state
Central Oregon will have to hand
the cake to that town.
"Two weeks ago, George P. Put
nam, editor of the Bulletin, was
sent by the Bend Commercial Club
to Portland to learn what the true
railroad situation was. He was
followed shortly by a committee,
headed by Alec Hunter, whose duty
it was to induce President Gray of
the Oregon Trunk to hurry on the
laying of Uic rails to Bend, and,
after this was accomplished, to ob
tain the presence of James J. Hill,
the 'empire builder,' if possible, to
drive the golden spike in commem
oration of the event. This crown
ing feature will take place at Bend
"How was all this ac:omplishcd?
Shnply by energy, liberality of its
business men and loyalty.
"Portland newspapers for ten
days have devoted us much space to
Bend's event next week, as that of
OMU CITY'S miSTAKU.
( liilltorUl Correspondence.)
Nkw YoiiK, Sept. US. On my
way East I stopped a few hours in
Tacomn, Wash., and got n fine Idea
there of what n city looks like where
its trees have been destroyed. The
nppearance of the suburbs of Tn-
coma makes n splendid object lesson
for Bend as regards the importance
of preserving nil possible trees.
Back of the city, for several miles,
extend the residential districts and
suburban additions. Before short
sighted people destroyed them,
thousands of magnificent fir trees
were scattered all over the rolling
hill of this section. Today there is
not n tree for many miles; nothing
but dismal bare hillsides, cither
studded with ugly stumps, or cover
ed with an unattractive mass of
Here and there pretty places
have been cleared, surrounded by
green lawns and (lowers; and always
the first work of the home makers
has been to PLANT TREES.
Here and there, also, are small
areas where the old-time trees were
left, probably by accident. And
where the trees are, usually there
arc the finest residences and the
most attractive places. The people
who wanted fine homes selected
locations where there were trees.
Also, they PAID GOOD MONEY
FOR THE TREES.
A man familiar with local con
ditions in Tacoma stated that in
almost every instance the presence
of a few fir treos added from 10 to
50 per cent to the price the pur
chasers were glad to pay. Money
talks. If it does, it's a mighty deaf
man who'll not be willing to add
from one-tenth to one-lmlf to the
value of his residential property by
preserving the trees especially
when cordwood is worth only about
$4.50 a cord and Bend has 20.000.000
feet of tributary timber!
One can always cut down a tree. '
But no one can put it back again,
once destroyed. The owners of
Tacoma additions have learned this, ,
to their sorrow, and to their los3. :
-G. P. P. !
Heaven knows there Is need of such.
Tho bedeviled American traveling
public has tho obsequious tip-seeking
palm thrust under its nose and al
most into its pocket with every bit
as much vehemoncy as is tho cane in
the most obnoxious European laud.
In reckoning tho cost of a railroad
journey one is obliged not only to
consider tho actual rail faro, plus
meals euroute, but to this ample
sum must be added the sundry and
considerable tips that must soothe
the ever present Ethiopian palms if
decent service is to be had.
Why does the public have to pay
the salaries of the Pullman porters?
Why does not some ambitious road,
anxious to outdo its rivals and
thereby win inipulnr favor and re
sulting passenger trntllc. inaugurate
n tip-less service? Such action
would be greeted with a universal
paon of thanksgiving by tho tip
infested traveling public.
In an interview recently in Paris,
Thomas A. Edison said tieople sleep
too much. Maybe that's why he in
vented the phonograph.
Before the week is ended we'll
know who in Bend has kept the
cleanest back yard this summer.
Some people we know aire good
because It pays, and some good for

A TII'-LliSS RAILKOAD.
The big railroads of the country
ore vying with each other as never
before in their efforts to create i
unique attractions to draw passon-'
ger traffic to them. This is par-
ticuiorly true of the so-called trans- j
continental roads, with their keen
competition for the long-haul pass-1
enger business. It is "the little
things that count" with the lux- J
urious American traveler of today.
Appreciating this, the roads are
constantly going ineir nvais one
better with some clever comment
catching contrivance, such as the
serving of afternoon tea in the
observation car (wherefore their
lady passengers furnish free adver
tising from the North Cape to I'alm
Beach), the publication of miniature
daily papers on the trains, the oper
ation of bake shops and manicure
parlors one idea, after another al
Why not, then, a tip-less railroad?
