many other Important electrical proj

None of the men associated with
the new enterprise Is a promoter, or
ever has been conected with the pro
motion of any scheme. Mr. Miller
states most positively that their pur
chase here is sn out and out "buy,"
that they intend to bring a lot of
money for local development, as
opnelngs for it arise, and that they
mean to atay with Dend permanently.
Mr. Drown was here only once, and
that time durlg a rainstorm, but he
saw enough to send him back to Chi

Mr. Miller has been here several
times and has Investigated thorough

ot his work being materially In

by the Central Oregon Power Co.
The sale, besides Including tho power
plant and water and lighting nyatcma
In Dend, also Includes certain real es

part ot it Is at Important power sites
up the river and near Dend.
"The Dend Company, from whom
the purchase was made, retains no In

all of the stock and other assets Is

"The Central Oregon Power Co. Is

the purpose of developing water pow
