"From time to tlmo during --
tho coming weeks The Rulletln -
will publish tables of figures
bearing on tax matters In Crook
county and In tho proposed Dcs- -
chutes county. Every voter Is
""rirgCii to presence these figures
arid make a special study of
them In coming to his decision
on the question of how to vote
on county division. Tho matter
of Uses Interests everybody. In
order to make no mistakes a
thorough understanding of tax
matters Is necessary. When --
they are understood no one will
oppose Deschutes county for -
fear of higher taxes.
-VTUE WATER USER'S ACTION.
The circular to the C O. I. Co.
.water users issued last week seems at
this time to bo particularly unfor
tunate. The direct assertion Is made
that tho Central Oregon Irrigation
Company Is dissipating the assets of
the company In falling to expend
maintenance fees on the upkeep of
the system and the whole tone of the
circular Is hostile to the comany.
It Is unfortunately true that all
nartles connected with the regrega-
tion have been at war for some time,
but whatever has been believed as to
the company's use qf maintenance
fees, has been only aurmlsed. No
facts save been known. At the meet
ing hero on July 2S the attorney for
the water users waa extremely care
ful to say that IP the maintenance
fees were being; Improperly spent the
settlers had cause forcomplaint. Ho
did not assert that they were so
speak. His wbolo statement as to
the 'settler's rights was based on an
assumption, and he took particular
paIns';to make It clear that It was
only an assumption.
The manager of the company In re
ply.asiertcd that the assumption was
not' correct that It was not Justi
fied by the facts, and he offered to
open the books of the company to an t
examination In proof of bis state-1
Now, without having the Invcsti-j
gatlon made to discover the exact
facta this circular announces without
qualification that the charge Is true
and the assumption a statement of
Whether It is true or not we do
not know, and we doubt very much
whether the directors know, or can
know, prior to the examination of
the books offered by the company.
That is the next step to be taken and
It should be taken as soon as pos
sible. It Is to the company's Interest
that It be done as much as to the
water users and In the meantime
whatever Is responsible for the alle
gations of the circular should see
to It that ttiey are withdrawn.
The Issue as to the bond between
Mr. Howard and Mr. Lewis seems to
be very clearly drawn. Both agree
that a bond Is on file but they differ
as to its worth.
It must be confessed that one who
attended the meeting referred to
above came away with the under
ttandlng that the companv had pledg
ed S2S.000 lircash for the repair or
tbe'flume when necessary. Mr. How.
ard talked'of a "cash bond" and even
snoke of the' bank In Portland where
the money wns on deposit. Without
wishing in the least to Impugn hU
root lyes we venture pa hay-41iathere
was.no one who nttended-the-mee't-lng
who did not understand him to
mean' that this money on deposit was
tholjond In question available at any
moment for the repair of the flume
in case of the company's Inability to
do bo: It now appears that there Is
no cash bond In the meaning un
derstood by Mr. Howard's hearers
but that there Is a suretv company
bond In the penal sum of $25,000.
-The issue as to whether or not the
bond Is cash Is too trivial for consid
eration. No sane man would say there
was a cash bond In this case meaning
Just that, and we are unwilling to
convict Mr. Howard of having said
what'ho did In an attempt to mislead.
There was a misunderstanding.
On the other hand Mr. Lewis is
not to be understood as saying that
the company has not put up on un
dertaking called a bond slened with
it by a Burety company. The thins
Is there, whatever it may bo called.
The one question Is as to Its value to
th,e settlers. When, Mr. Lewis says
there1 Is no bond he' means none of
any value. That Is whqro Mr. How
ard and Mr. Lewis disagree. ,
Aside from legal opinion" as to the
value of the bond the only way the
question will ever be settled will be,
colly to nld in the road work on tho
McKonilc pass, Is worthy of npoolal
mention. Llfo Is too short to spend
nny-of It In petty, local Jealousies nnd
quarrels, and when an nctlvo friend
ship springs up. even though there
was no III will preceding. It Is worthy
of record. ,
It Is worthy of record, too, that ono
Sisters merchant Is outdoing every
ono else In giving assistance to tho
fair as shown by the following from
the Sisters Herald:
"The offering of moro thon $Sd
worth of special prlios for tho Sla
ters Pair, togother with $25 In cash
donated and two shares of stock sub
scribed for by Robt. Smith la worthy
of more than ordinary praise. The
merchant who is liberal with his do
nations In Vipport of n cause as wor

MAIL SERVICE IMPROVED.
(Port Rock Times.)
Twice during the past week tho
mail has arrived In Port Rock at J
p. m. This Is bringing the mall from
Portland In 20 hours, tho fastest time
ever made on this line. Tho reason
for the fast tlmo Is that tho Wenandy
Company has been using two trucks
and ono touring. car to carry the mall.
The trucks arrlvo here from 6:30 to J
p. tn., while the touring car which.
comes ever third day has been mak
ing the record runs. Beginning July
15th. the government allowed the
company to change tno running time
out of Sliver Lake and only two
trucks will be used, at least during
the good weather
