PJUNHVILLU, June 2. -The In
evitable and the expected and at the
innio llmo tho most promising and
most fertile source of dissension,
namely, who shall have the care, cus
tody and control of the county auto,
has fairly arrived and offers to bo a
frequent causo of contention between
tho sheriff's office and tho
county judge, at least until the
county commissioners can lay down
the rules for future observance.
The sheriff asserts that he. as chief
executive of the county, should be
the man behind the wheel at all times
for If every official Is going to drive
that car then be wants nothing to do
with It, for ho will be blamed for
all Injuries by careless driving of
the county's sacred Juggernaut. On
the other hand the Judge assumes a
prior right, not because he assisted
so ably in purchasing it but because
he naturally assumes and takes upon
himself even affair In the county
whether it relate to the moral con
duct of the head of a family In Horse
Heaven precinct or to prescribing the
course of study in tae county high
In order to get his six prisoners
to the railroad last week the sheriff
found It necessary to employ a
chauffeur, as driving a big car and
handling six convicts is work for
more than one man. It was a capi
tal idea from the Judge s standpoint,
and be bethought himself of a plan
to Inspect a county road in the Bea
ver Creek country immediately and
iHjfore the sheriff could return by
employing that selfsame chauffeur.
Dut on tho return trip from tho
railroad the chauffeur had ripped a
casing and before the machine could
tic repaired the sheriff returned and
gave Instructions that the county car
was not going to Beaver Creek until
it could be placed in adequate repair.
The judge's Ire. was raised for that
road must be Inspected without de
lay. It hadn't been Inspected for a
matter of ten years, perhaps, but
must now be investigated instantly,
and bv the aucust bead of the com
missioners court, for somebody
might repair It in his absence.
Therefore, a private car was or
dered, the road Inspected, the Inter
ests of tho county protected and the
dignity of the county Judge preserved
even If the cost of the trip waB

requesting tho clerk to write to all
timber owners demnudlng n state

ho then learned most assuredly that
the assessor had no sympathy with
the undertaking, I'pou tho asses

called upon the county clerk to learn
how he was succeeding. When tho
clerk assured the Judge that he had

"The nuto affidavit scouts to pos.

It Immediately dawned upon his roy
al highness that llayley wns about
tho whole push about tho court house
and that whatever wns accomplished
not to Bnyley'a liking would he
sprouted In exceedingly dry ground
and so It has proven.
However, some good things have
been accomplished. The timber cruis
ing fund. 912.S00, has been turned
into the treasury. Tho $-1000 in
warrants which was issued to pay
off somo notes given by tho commis
sioners and which was attached by
parties to whom tho county was In
debted, has been cancelled; and some
other economic actions have becu
bad which In nil nggregato nearly
$20,000 restored and saved to dato.
Hut the wholo trouble Including the
cement yarn with which the genial
commissioner stated (as 1 learned a
month or so beforo It was touched
off) that he had tho Judgo silenced;
in fact all the soil and mud exhibited
by The Bend Bulletin and all the
slanderous dirty yarns nursed by the
toughs and encouraged by that classy
Journal, are tho results of the Judge's
efforts at economy and law enforce
ment, which are not approved by
Bayley and his followers.
"The Issue clearly stated Is simply
this: Shall tho county go glibly on
paying out largo sums of money for
road Improvement, timber cruising,
etc., In which there Is a possibility If
not a strong probability that n few
Individuals will reap a rich harvest.

Superintendent Myers has Issued the
following statement to school patrons
of the county:
"The last Legislature passed a free
textbook law, by which, at tho an
nual meeting June ie, districts may
vote for or against free textbooks. If
the various districts vote for free
textbooks, it will be necessary to
vote a small tax to pay for them.
"The average cost for the Install
ation of free textbooks is about $2.&0 ,
per child. The yearly up-kep. after
the first year, will edst from 70 cents
to Jl per school chliu. Tite approxi
mate cost by grades Is as follows:
1st. .60; 2nd, .70; 3rd, .80; 4th,
