Tho November election bequeathed
Oregon two Inws, both excellent
enough, but neither appllcahlo, as
things now are. Oac of them per
mitted the state to Issuo bonds up to
2 per cent of Its taxable property,
nnd the other dtd the same, npproxl-,
matoly. for tho counties. Another
bill, which was defeated, provldod
for the cxtMandtturo of such boad
funds under the supervision of a
highway commissioner nnd highway
So the stato and counties now
have tho means to raise money for
tho creation of permanent roads, but
no method of expending such money
whoa It has beon obtained.
To remedy this peculiar state of
affairs a plaa U broached to have
the Governor appoint a state
Highway vtMHiubttloa. Its members to
bo drawn from four sections of the
Mtat4 and which will employ a com
lultatener who Is to have direct
charge of Oregon's road building ac-l
tlvttlos mi far a they are financed
from tho bod Issues arising from
the above mentioned laws.
The commissioners are to receive
no salary, getting only actual expen
no. Presumably, they are to bo se
lected from the ranks of men of abll.
Ity men such as aro qualified and
nre of a stamp that would not enter
lnlo apolltlcal race, for office. Their
election of -a -commissioner - would
take his offico out of politics, at least
o-faraa 'uch'an office ever can'bo
expected to uSpolItfcally free.
Altogether, the plan is an excel
lehfone. It is to bo hoped that the
legislature will seo At to acfopt It.

- No better tribute to tho advancc-
.rlent Dead haa accomplished coulibbe
asked than that afforded by the open
ing of Its splendid new banking
building two days ago. That any
town but ten years old which up to
eighteen months ago was oae hun
dred miles from a railroad could war.
rant such a structure. Is remarkable.
Put the men who have set a mark
for Mend by orectlng that building
realize that the town not only will
grow up to it speedily enough but
that Bend needs it today. That they
deserve credit for what they have
done Is no less apparent than is the
fact that tbey were hble to do what
they bavo accomplished a matter for
incero Jubilation on the part of ev
eryone whose. interests are those of
' ';The new building is sn stent for
Bend, it I another milestone In the
-town's development. And the growth
,ot the institution which It houses la
also worthy of comment. Four
i years ago its deposits amounted to
less than $20,000. Today they are
tin excess of a quarter of a million
dollars distributed among more than
vlercn hundred depositors. Tbst'a
an inspiration, too, for Band, isn't It?
i If so much has been accomplished
during the four years that have Just
' passed, what may not the next four
years hold In store? The answer
need trouble no one exoept only the
man who sold out his Hend property.
It la Important that all who have
the best luteroais of Hend at heart,

IIAPTIST CHRISTMAS TltliK.
The Christmas program Khe at
the Baptist church on Christmas Kve,
f was attended by a full house. In spile
of the stormy evening. Mr. Qosney.
the new Sunday School superintend,
ent, was In charge. The program
consisted mainly of musical selec
tions and while a number of those on
tho program were kept away ou ac
count of sickness, every one taking
part did well. The church was pret
tily decorate) with fir boughs and the
tree was covered with tinsel, imp
corn, candles and other Christmas
decorations. If the enlovment of
the uudlence was to lo Judged by the
Interest, certainty everyone had a de
lightful time. "
WIND STOKM DDKS HAVOC.
A high southerly wind that blew
Saturday night and all day Sunday
played havoc with local telephone
and electric wires, banging signs and
anything else that was movable. The
telephone service was put almost
completely out of commission. Mou
day morning only six local lines
could be operated; the Prlnevllle. La
Pine and co-operative out of town
lines were down, the Laldlaw service
atone being In commission,. The
worst damage done to tho electric
system was caused by a tree falling
acrota the Kenwood line, which cut
It off completely.
KXHRCISKS IX THK COl'NTItY.
fn connection with the Sunday
school at the Richardson school house
east of town, a most enjoyable gath
ering was held on Christmas evening.
The attendaaco was large, many per
sons being unable to find seats. Pro
ceedings were opened by Mrs Knsor
Wlgmore,. the preacher, who deliver
ed a ahort address on the lessons of
Christmss. stter which the children
rendered an excellent program and
the members of the adult lllble class
superintended the distribution of the
gifts to old and young alike from a
fine tree. The serving of cake and
coffee by the ladles of the congrega
tion closed the evenings program.
Services are held at this school bouse

many of the leading local merchants
that an escape from present alleged
unbearable conditions of competi

through tho establishment of a

between the Hill line and this sec
It Is a patont fact to many close
observers that the Hill line, soonor
or later, must and will coino Into
Klamath Kails on their way south

from Hend to Klamath Kails, It
would only bo necesssry for an ex

Northern Pacific systems with the
Western Pacific at Doyle, In lessen
.With James- J. Hill aa the domi

be a demonstrable fact, It would only
be necesssry for the two hundred-odd
miles of rallrosd link to be built bo
tween fiend. Ore., and Doylo, Cal., to

San Kranclsco. To reach San Kran

two hundred, miles of new steel.
