A girl waiting In Portland tan daya
for tho errlvnl of her Intended Nus
oond, with not a word from him; a
woman also In Portland Ignorant of
the fnto of her husband whom aho ex.
pected to Join her every day; another
woman here waiting five weeks while
her huiband waa en route by auto
from Hole, Idaho, to Hend; five men
snowbound ltwcn Hums and
llend, one of them with a broken leg
and one of them a brldegrpom-to-bo
who wss unable to communicate with
tho girl In tho caso these are a few
of tho remarkable results that fol
lowed a scries of remarkable nils
hapi to a party that arrived In Hend
lat Friday, pnrt of whom left Holse
on December 20, 1912, five weeks before.
In the party were A. J. Hauacr, W.
J. Straley and D. 1). Hurt, who begnn
tnelr never-to-be-forgotten journey
at Holse, and W. L. Van Zant and an
other man from Hum. Mr, Mauser
ns a homestead near Fort Hock,
whither lie was en route. Mrs. Hau.
ser having come on to Hend by rail
way, Mr, Straley was to have met
hla wife at Sherman on January 3
and go on with her to Portland, but
ho has aa t cot no farther than
Hend, being laid up at tho Hotel
Wright with a broken leg, sustained
on the meraorablo trip.
Tho three autoltts expected to be
able to make the trip of some COO
mile In four or five day. For the
flrat part of the Journey'thlngs went
all right, but when Hums was reach
ed the auto gave trouble and for some
time no one could ho found who was
mechanician enough to remedy the
evil. Finally, Mr. Hauser nlmsslf
turned the trick and on January 13
maybe It waa a lucky day nnd may
be it wasn't the start was made to
Hend. Deep snow wsa encountered
and when Horace Hrooklngs' place
was reached a halt had to be called.
Joining the party at Hum waa Mr.
Van Zant, who waa on hla way toJ
rortland to be marred on the ICth.
When It was linpoaalble to proceed
farther than Hrooklngs,' an effort waa
made by him to communicate with
the young lady expecting him, hut
there waa no mall and no telephone
message could Iks got through. Con
sequent!)-, ahe was in total Ignorance
of tho cause of tho failure to appear
of her lnuncclot. Mr Van Zant waa
able to reach her by wire only when
he got here, and on Saturday he went
down to Portland. So far as known
here, she waited for him and the
couple were married and proceeded
on their honeymoon trip to Califor
nia, aa had been planned. Mr. Van
Zant la a rancher and atago driver
in Harney county.
While amualns himself during tho
wait at Hrooklngs', Mr. Straley en.
gaged In a scufllo and hnd tho serl
ous misfortune to get ono of his
legs broken. Ill wlfo was not no
tilled nt the time of tho accident It
was not M)Mll)le to as It was be
lieved thnt It would only ndd iiiinee
casary burdens to her already much
perturbed mind, caused naturally by
tho delay In tho nrrlvnl of her hus
band. The only news ahe wn nblo
to get from him was through Mrs.
Ilnuscr hero, Mr. Hntuer having tele
phoned hla wlfo from Hums whllo
there. It was Impossible to get let
ters out from tho Harney county seat
as the tnge company had thrown up
Ita contract and no mall waa boltiK
Tho atrandrd men woro at Hrook
Ing' for about ten days. When the
snow went nwny a little It was two
or three feet deep they loaded their
car into an nuto truck as ballast so
the truck would run better and got
as far toward Hend a the 31 mile
post. In this manner. Then the truck
broke down and tho passenger car
was unloaded aud atarted on under
Its own power. Things went pretty
well until the 20 mllcpost was
reached when tho caning gave way
and the party was again stranded.
Finally, they reached dest'natlon by
engaging the services of a team, and
Mr. and Mrs. Hauser sro now at the
May apartments waiting for tho anow
to go oft so they can proceed to their
homeactad at Fort Hock. Mrs. Hau.
aer said today that ahe wanted her
huiband to take a homestead, but
that ahe hopes tho experiences of the
psst few weeks will not lie repeated
very often. To add to her anguish
waa tho death of her mother, Mr.
Harriet W, Evans, who died on Janu
ary C, aa reported In Tho Itulletln.

HARPER TOWNSITE TRANSFER
Oregon Immigration Company of
llend Huya Projiertjr up IUvC.
Laat week a deal waa completed
whorcby aomo 200 Iota In the town
alto of Harper, about 18 miles south
of Uend on the Deschutes, are trans
ferred from David Hill to the Oregon
La& k Immigration Co., composed
of O. C. Henkle, H. D. Ford, James
Ryan and E. R. Post of Bend.,
In addition to the purchase of lots,
the company bought from 31r. Hill
80 acres adjoining the townslte on
the esst, south and west, which land
will be platted shortly. Tho consider,
atlon Involved la not stated, hut it I
understood that a considerable sum
was paid over.
The company will place the lota
on the market at once, and soon, say
Mr. ford,, probably will undertake
aomo improvement work on their
property and wilt devote much atten
tton to puahlng it
COMMERCIAL CI.UH PLUGS ON.
At a meeting of the Commercial
Club director laat week, the reslg.
nation of P. W. Drown aa manager
waa accepted. It waa decided that
temporarily the work of answering
inquiries bo left to K. D. Gould, who
wtll act as manager at least for a
abort time, until moro active condi
tion warrant a bigger work by the
club. The finances or tho Institu
tion are In satisfactory shape, and a
great number of letters are received.
FIRE AT MIW. FRAME'S,
Soot accumulated In the kitchen
hlmney at Mrs. A. T. Frame's caught
jn nro Friday afternoon shortly af
ter 1 o'clock, but. the blare was put
out before getting any headway or
doing damage. The firemen turned
out aa aoon aa the alarm waa given,
but tho Are waa extinguished before
they could reach the aceno.
Tomorrow Engineer II. E. Koort
goea to Portland to make arrange
menu for tho sower work, which was
taken over by the city last week.
Construction haa been almost entire
ly suspended during the week, but
Mr. Koon will be back Monday or
Tuesday and It Is expected to resumo
operationa Wednesday or Thursday
at the latest, and to continue them
thereafter to the full capacity of the
Ono chief reason for Mr. Koon's
Portland trip is to arrsngo for a
compressed air outfit to handle much
of the drilling. This will probably
bo done on a contract basis, at ao
much a foot. The city now haa ov
en steam drills, and these will bo put
at work continuously.
Mr. Koon'a $5000 bond has been
accepted, and a liability bond pro
tectlng tho city in case of accident
to employes has been arranged.
The contractors' bond haa not been
released and will not b until all la
bor and other accounts are satisfied
As there has been much Interest la
the action of the council In taking
over the work, some criticism and
a general desire for full Information
on the part of the taxpayers, the spec
lal sewer committee and the council
have issued the following general
statement, as It was impo!ble to
cover the matter fully In The Bulletin
For several weeka tho engineer and
city officials have known that the
contractors were "up against It."
It was simply a matter of time per
baps a few weeks, perhaps a couple
of months until they threw up the
Job. They made a ridiculous bid.
and wero Just discovering that they
were losing money fast. Their bid
$59,398.97, waa tho lowest recelv
ed and was accepted, naturally, for
even though the council was advised
that It seemed unprofitably low,
there would have liecn good ground
for criticism had tho lowest bidder
been turned down and a higher one
So the city faced tho choice of
tl) To mako the contractors go
through with the Job.
(2) To cancel their contract and
try to force the bonding bouse to
complete the work.
(3) To re-let the entire work.
(4) To take over the work.
The matter waa threshed out In de
tail and considered ca thoroughly as
posslblo long before any knowledge
of the problem the council faced waa
