Commercial Club Votes Unnnlmously In Favor of
the Separation of South .Western Portion of
Crook to Form a New County Committee
Is AppointedPetitions Being Circulated
County illvWon talk, wliloli has
been In Hie nlr ror the 1it few
months, oh mo to n hosd rkiiunlHy at
tho Commercial Club luncheon, and
a unanimous vote was pasned In favor
or going ntioad with tho plnu to form
a now county in tho southwestern
part of Crook county to be known ia
Duschutea county. At a meeting held
Hnturdny evening the subject wim
illscussad lu detail nnd lines ror tho
new county agreed upon
County division under tho pres
ent law waa llrst proponed by tho
north end. As early as last wlntor
residents of that section began lo
work on tho subject and to arouse
Interest and enthusiasm In a plan to
cut off tho north end forming a now
county to bo called Jerferaon. Hy
tho middle of May their plans hnd -o
fnr dovolopod Hint they began tho
clrculndon of petitions to hnvo tho
question of setting off Jefferson coun
ty put on the ballot at tho November
election. The movement has met
with a vory fnvorahle sentiment and
ulready aomo 800 nnmes have been
secured or moro than enough to In
sure getting tho question to a vote.
In this sootlun of the county the
movement has been slower In gettlmt
under way, portly becau of a latw
start and partly because of h denlre
to study the question thoroughly be
fore going nbead. lu Mnv a com
mlttr! waa appointed to atmlv the
question nnd Hie present action is
the result of Hie work that the com
mittee has itoao.
Aa showing the friendly fooling
with which the Jofferson county
movement has ben received and it
tho samo lime tho hesitation ns to
making a start hero it is pointed out
Hint In June the Commercial Club
voted to support tho north end In Its
effort to gel loose while te!ng unwll
ling to Indorse tho Deschutes county
proposal. In the tlmo that haa
elapsed, however, tho feeling haa
grown locally that alnco the people
of the north end are going ahead and
seem almost sure to obtain their di
vision It Is most des rable tbat tno
same action should bo taken In the
southwestern part of Crook ao tnat
tho two petitions can go on the bal
lot together.
Ilevrhutnt County Line.
Tho lines of tho proposed Des
chutes county havo necossarlly been
Influenced by tho line proposed as tho
south boundary of Jefferson countv,
which, where It touches Deschutes,
runs duo west ort tho .lino lietwcon
Townships 13 nnd H. It will form
tho north line of Deschutes oounty
and has had to lie takon aa a start
Ing point lor the east lino. The east
lino In turn haa been Influenced by
n consideration of old Crook county
remaining and. though no line could
b drawn which would aattafy every.
ono. the line nropoeou earne ns uer
to satisfying aa any iulrf. A nut
her of Influential men In old Crootc;
representing both the Ptlnevllle dis
trict and tno eastern section, have
expressed thomtolvos an satlslled with
tho lino nnd promised their support
on the vote. Included In tho pro
posed .boundaries are Terrolinnn,
Itodmond, Alfalfa, Mllliodn. part of
Imperial nnd nil other precincts to
tho wost of these.
The Iteiluionil Attitude.
It U frankly reeogn'xed hero Hint
tho cltlof element of discord In tho
' rRakes, Mowers, Binders
i ; -l . ;v
and Reapers
for the same. Also a complete stock

gines at

Bend Hardware Go.
program aa outllnwl Is the poHalbte
attitude to H taken by Ileilmond.
Thoro can bo no doubt that It would
bo aa much to Itodmond'a advantage
to hnvo tho new county set off as to
any other port of tho southwestern
district. Itodmond stnnda to benefit
with every other town In tho Des
chutea, valley from tho construction
of a satisfactory north and south
rond, and this can bo achieved only
when that section forms a separate
county, and she Is In lino for the
benefits to bo derived from good
roads loading up to tho McKenzlu
pass, which will bo fully obtained
only with u new county.
So far as the county seat in con
cerned Redmond Is handicapped by
iter itosltlun so near tho Jefferson
county lino and away from the center
of Deschutes county and this condi
tion will always exist. The perma
nent seat Is not aelected until tho
general election In 1U1G and at that
tlmo Redmond stands an oven shoty
with llond, a natural contender toe
the honor. Kven should tho per
manent seat bo located hero It wouli
bo moro convenient for Redmond
people to oo me hero to do buslnesa
than to go to rrlnuvllle, aa many oi
them now agree.
It Is not osslblo for Itodmond t
complain that llend haa goao till sad
lu this matter without consulting be".
In tho first plaoe she was consulted,
n delegation going down from heri
who went over the whole matter,
ready to ngreo to any rooaonnblo
proposition In exchange for Itod
mond'a support but receiving only n
vague reply as to ucr position, t-von
hnd this delegation not gone down
thero Redmond could not havo com
plained fairly, for tho memory la too
fresh in minds of tho older ycsldenta
hero of tho socret attempt mado by
Itodmond tour years ago to carry
through a division of the county
which brought one lino to within five
miles of llend and actually would
have mado It necessary for Uend peo
ple who wanted to go to their coun
ty scat at I'rlnovllle to go across c
portion of the proposed Redmond
county. -
In tho last analysis Redmond will
bo benefitted by tho new county
along with all tho other towns lu
this section and It la hoped that tho
people thoro will come to rccognlzo
this and Join In working for tho pe
tition. Tim peoplo of this nelghbor
hool stand ready to meet tho Red
montl folks moro than -half wny in
anr division of the offices of the not
count)' it they will getout and give
tno proposition inoir support.
To .Make Campaign.
A committee has been appointed to
take charge of tho campaign for the
new county consisting of R. W. Saw.
yer, J. A. Easles and C W. Krskiue.
and representatives from other eom
tulttee In thla section will be added
to It. For the tlmo being tho efforts
of tho commltteo will be directed to
ward getting the requisite number of
signers to tho petition, which will be
preaentoii to tho county court to have
tho question put on the ballot at tho
Novombor election, and following
that a campaign to scouro n favor
