WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 1913.
For soveral months It has been an
open, secret that County Judge
Sprlngor was having his troubles.
Th'atfln Itself was not remarkable,
fofeounty judges and trouble are
pretty apt to bo Intlmatoly acquaint
ed. Hut these rumors recently have
become more acute, and have been
reinforced by sundry yarns, some of
them simply humorous and some of
them serious, alt of which tended to
diffuse a general belief that If Judgo
Sprlngor was not actually unfit for
his office through sins of commission
ho was at least disqualified from ren
dering worthy servlco to tho county
becahso of personal inability.
Whether or not our county judge
knowingly and wilfully stolo a couple
of wagon loads of cement, whether or
not he has said he stood for one thing
and did one thing while actually
standing for and doing another, are
not questions essential to tho point.
It is just posslblo that a satisfactory
explanation does exist regarding the
cement escapade (though Heaven
knows his "reply" to tho charges is
a masterpiece of evcaslonl) ; It may
be that ho was simply Ignorant of the
true condition of county finances
when he made statements regarding
them that wore misleading; It Is con
ceivable that he actually thought he
was opposed to the purchase of the
county auto despite the sworn state
ment to tho contrary of competent
witnesses. Ignorance of facts or a
genius for forgetting need not hope
lessly condemn a man.
Out when a "public official has the
brazen hardihood or tho Imbecile
lack of common sense to take the
stand Judgo Sprlngor occupied (or
tried to ocoupy) when he appeared
before the meeting of taxpayers in
terested in good roads, ut Prlnevllle
Wednesday, his case would seem to
he hapeloss. The fact that all his
fellow officials havo turned against
him in disgust was not suulolont to
damn him; people perhaps entertain
ed a suspicion that jealousy or some
kindred fooling caused the criticism
of the Judge. Hut last Wednesday
some 40 taxpayers were glen an In
sight Into his character and ability.
It Is fair to say that every ono of the
40 Is today heartily disgusted with
Briefly, Judge Springer tried to
compel a meeting to do exactly what
he wanted, despite the fact that it
was unanimously opposed to his plan.
Dllndly and stupidly he won the en
mity of a group of Influential men
whose only desire was for a progres
sive admiulstratlon of road matters.
The most charltablo thing that could
bo said Is that It was astonishingly
poor politics. It was a clumsy exhi
bition of a big stick supposedly used
to force a swap which no ono wanted
but the'Judgehiraself. That It failed
dismally was inevitable.
Just what wiU happen next It is
hard to conjecture. The situation tp
duy exhibits tho Judge with all his
brother officials opjioscd to him, and
with an evor-lncreaslng body of oU
flers awakening to the fact that the
county chose Its Judge with little wis
dom. That be is, p'r will be, next to
paperless' seems a fair presumption,
for'oneman 'opposed to two can ac
complish little.
$ Sounding tho matter from all sides
with expressions from Prlnevllle,
Redmond, Sisters, Metnllus, Madras
a and even the eaafara country dls-
Modestly tucked nwny on nn In
side page, under tho caption of "l.o
cal Mention," tho following graphic,
comprehensive and enthusiastic ac
count of tho progress of railroad
building to Prlnevllle Is found In
tho Crook Cdunty Journal of last
"Tho railroad surveyors ore stilt
working out of Mctollus but hopo to
Jiiq. through on that side of the gap
by tho end of tho week. Thon work
will bo conducted from this end of
tho line. Everything Is progressing
smoothly and every Indication points
to n railroad In tho near future."
Thoro seems every reason to bo
ncvo that n real railroad actunlly Is
coming this time, and Prinevlllo Is
to be congratulated heartily, as Is
tho rest of Central Oregon for de
velopment of ono section or one com
munity cannot but benefit others.
Hut tho point Is that some folks aro
wondering what the Journal would
havo to say about a roally Important
ovent like a funeral; of courso such
a roero trifle as n railroad Is worth
nothing more than a'bretlty In a
sanely progressive journal!
Lost week Prlnevllle had a tag
day; tho ladles' raised monoy to Im
prove a city parkx Ono of tho special
purposes is to plant trees. It Is a
good plan and ono that merits enthu
siastic support. Also, for other com
munltics it Is an admirable example
and a lesson. For Instance. It shows
a town that already has trees how
important It is to preserve thfin. Jf
a few people were given their way,
every tree in Uend would bo de
stroyed and then some day we. too,
would be having teg days to raise
money to plant trees. Ldt us ronicnt-

Dear Friend:
Do you like pie-plant
pie? I Just love it.
It io better than
gooseberries. It you
get pie-plant that is
not tough it makes the
pie good and juicy I
like the Juice. When
mama sent me for pie
plant today I saw all
of these things at the
Pie-plant 7 cents a
Your friend,
P. S.-That was good
pie-plant we got at
this Issuo of Tho Hultotlu, on which
thoso sites nro mnrkod, nnd sun tho
results. Right at tho atari you havo
pruvldod site for n - perfect school
system for a city of 35,000 people;
and Hond will havo sot an example
among cities for fnrslghtoilnees nnd
economy In tho administration of
funds for such purposes.
8. Tho owneru of ovory alto In
llend will benefit hy this; and wo
think you will hgrco thnt wo nro pay
ing for nny bonclU wo tuny dorlvo.
0, It our Central High School slto
now ttunins Inconvenient, It will not
seem so when tho Mr tit scholar enter
the building. Hy the time tho build
ing Is llnlshed more than half of
lion d 's population will bo living east
of tho trnck.
10. Furthermore, wo predict that
you will build n school nlto In tho
Second Addition to llend Pnrlc with
in two years, nnd In tho North End
within thrco years,
11. Our offer holds good until nn
election tnken plnce, tho election to

occur us soon as tho law permits, to
voto on bonds to purchase the site
west of tho rlvor nnd In erect the
Central High School on tho site hero
In offered.
12. And whatovor you do, provldo
nmplo playgrounds.
This I merely a statement of tho
school problem as It appears to us;
and wo will neither say nor do any
thing to Influence your opinion.
