The draft of the city charter nnv
poeol ly initiative ivtition filet!
August 2:1 and ontuinetl by the
Common Council August ill has
been printed in pamphlet form anil
distributed anion: the voters. Next
Wednesday they will cast their
ballots to adopt or reject it.
The charter is a long document
and apparently fully covers the
field. It makes no radical changes
in government from that at present
enjoyed by Bend, but docs provide
enlarge! powers which have already
been found needed by the council.
If adopted, Uend will be able to
issue bonds for various purposes,
and extensive street Improvements
can be undertaken if deemed ex
pedient. The council is also em
powered to buy or construct and
operate water and light systems,
as well as sewers. The acquiring
of water and light systems may bo
by "purchase, condemnation or
otherwise" of such system "now in
existence or that may hereafter be
The elective officers provided
under the charter are a mayor, to
be elected annually; six councilmcn,
three of whom shall be elected each
year to serve for a period of two
years, and a treasurer, who shall be
chosen annually. At the first elec
tion under the charter six council
mcn shall bo chosen, the three re
ceiving the highest number of votes
to serve two years and the others
one year. The mayor must ap
point a recorder and may appoint a
chief of police, fire marshal, street
commissioner, city attorney, city
engineer, city physician, etc. Every
appointment must bo confirmed by
a majority vote of the council.
The charter provides that no
salary sHrII be jmid the mayor or
If adoptod next Wcdnosday, the
charter will go into effect from and
after midnight of the succeeding
notabla addition to its stall last
week when it acquired E. S. Rey
nolds (better known by bis friends
as "Tige") as cartoonist. Mr.
Reynolds was for several years on
the Tacomn Ledger and for the hist
two years with the Vancouver 01.
C.) Province. His cartoons nro
bright and humorous and have been
copied from one end of the country
to the other. Rent! rentiers of The
Oregonian will wnlch with interest
every day for the pictures with the
little tiger on them.
The new experiment station and

to establish in Crook county, using
the funds provided by the two rail
roads. Portland business men ami
Crook county, will mean much to
this part of the state. It will supply
the proper knowledge needed by
the farmer to make succowful agri
cultural work possible.

The Rulletin has received from
Secretary of State Olcott a copy
each, in pamphlet form, of the fol
lowing laws which anyone may see
by calling nt this ollice: Fish and
Game, Elections, Forest Fire, Rank
ing, Water, School, Assessment nnd
Taxation, Motor Vehicle, Mines and
Mining, Coriwration, anil Roads,
Highways, Rridges and Ferries. '
In copying The Rulletin's recent
editorial on "The Automobile Hog,"
the Hood River News refers to it as
"apparently copied from an Eastern
publication." No thank you, Rrother
Walton, it was not copied from an
Eastern or any other publication.
We take the blame ourselves.
At a meeting of the Oregon Fish
and Game Commission last week, it
was decided to make an investi
gation of the Deschutes River with
the intention ultimately of establish
ing a fish hatchery on the stream,
probably next year.
Eastern dispatches quote the
doctors as saying babies are kissed
too much. The infant would
doubtless prefer to delay the oscu
lation until the more mature age of
16 or 17.
A brand new job press has Ieen

Tired of "single blessedness", the
bachelors of northern Lake county
have put their heads together and
formed an organization known as
the Silver Lake Bachelors' Club.
The preamble of the constitution as
quoted by the "Leader" of that
town runs thusly:
"Believing in the rapid develop
ment of Northern Lake County,
having demonstrated the fertility of
the soil, built homes and accumulat
ed sufficient worldly goods for tho
care and protection of two(ormore),
we, members of the Silver Lake
Bachelors' Club, find oursolvoa mere
paupors in The One osaontial of the
Ihmiw. We find Northern Lake
County virtually an Evelosa Eden,
and to eradicate this drawback to
the country we hava determined to
diroct our efforts toward bringing
more Evm into the garden."
From tin's it would appear that
the bachelors of Bend had better
keep their lanqw trimmed and burn-j
ing bright or those Silver Lakeites
will be carrying off some of the girls
from this town to adorn that "Eve
less Eden" to Die south. The fame
of the fraulcins of Bend has doubt
less reached the Silver Lake wife
less ones: perhaps they have heard
that there is a club here composed
of eighteen marriageable misses and
are preparing to make an attack on
the hearts of these damsels. Sloth
is not characteristic of the Bend
"boys" and if war is declared, with
the Bend girls as the spoils of battle,
there would doubtless be a conflict
that would overshadow the famous
siege of Troy. To armi, to arrra,
ye brave, bonny Bend bachelors! !

BEND A CITY
OF TEN THOUSAND!
In two years, Is the prediction of everyone that has visited
Bend since the TWO RAILROADS have arrived. -
WHY TINS PREDICTION FROM STRANGERS?
With large substantial stone business buildings being erected
with all possible haste to accommodate the vast increase in
business iu all lines; with business and building increasing
faster than the fondest hopes of all who expected a reasonable
rush; with one company preparing to employ TWELVE HUN
DRED MEN, with other industries now completed and building
that will employ OVER ANOTHER THOUSAND people, which
will insure Bend a pay-roll for over TWO THOUSAND people In
less than one year with all this isn't the prediction reasonable?
