As was to bo oxpoctod Mr. Ilrown's

Mr. Ilroiwi'H Statement.
Mr. Ilrown's statement Is as fol
lows: "1 havo personally Invostod con
Hldornblo money In tho llend Water
Light & Tower plant. I saw this
Iilnnt before my associates and I
mado tho purchaso but sluco that
time, wo havo Invested half again as

for oxtonslons Is going to bo tho most

future conduct of tho business of tho
company of which I am president and

'Tho question whothor or not It
would bo hu ndVAtitngo to thu city of
Umul to glvo mother electric power
grounds. Mr. Steldl has, 1 believe a
plant which Is Inoxponslvo tor a lim
ited amount of power lor a timo, but
for any cbnalderabld 'nnitoint Is im
practicable because of expenrfo of
construction and operation.
"Itegardless of this, however, my
vlow Is that Mr, Steldl can find mar
ket for all tho power continually he
can produce without any city fran
chise, and without entering Into com
petition with tho present company for
city and commercial lighting. 1 see
no unfairness to hlirr therefore, In
refusing him a franchlso.
"As It Is distinctly Injurious to
tho city to have tho competition
which Mr. Steldl propoBos, it follows
that it would bo unfair to thu city
to grant the franchise.
Will I'rotlrio Market.
"I will Bay. howevor, thnt If Mr.
Steldl enn give any ndvantngo to the
city by reason of low cost in produc
ing current I am In favor of catting
thnt advnntago for tho city nnd I
will do what I can to secure that ad
vantage. No city franchlso Is neces
sary for that end. I will undertake
to .'provide Mr, Steldl a market for
all tho electricity his plant can con
tinuously and reliably produco ct a
rnto based on tho samo calculations
as are mado by tho Commission in
fixing tho rates of my company, so
that If ho has any advantngo In the
way of original low Investment or of
low operatln; cost ho will got It all.

Dr. D. F, llrooka and H. B. Glp
Bon, of Minneapolis, arrived in town
Monday morning to attend tho an
nual meotlng of The llend Company
in which thoy represent a third In
terest. Ilesldes their participation In
tho meotlng of tho company, which
took place on Monday, a portion of
their tlmo whlla hero was occupied
in considering plans for tho milling
development by their own company,
tno Hcnnion-uipson Lumber Co.. of
Tho Scnnlon-Qlpson Co. and tho
llrooks-Iloboitson Co,, alllod com
panies, aro tho ownors of a large
body of timber extending to the south
nnd cast of town and for n long tlmo
havo had undor consideration tho
erection of a bow mill nearby for tho
purnoso of milling their timber.
In Bpcaklng of their plans ycztdr
day afternoon Dr. Brooks B.ild that
Inst July nmwgetnoaU were prrctlc
rlly completed to go nhcad with the
mill and Burveys wcro made for the
mill location. Then the European
war Bprang up, markets bsc.'.me de
moralized and It was thought-beet 'to
postpone, construction. At tho prcs-
ont time, no said, plans woro again
under consideration to begin tho
Doth Dr. Brooks and Mr. Olpson
were coneervativo lii their Btatemonts
urging that they wished nothing said
which would give the people of Bond
a false; impression ns to .their plans
and at tho same time agreeing that
ultimately thoy expected to mill here.
In this connection Mr. Olpson stat-
rd that at tho meeting of The llcnd
Company pn Mondny tho option on
tho mill tlto on the east side of tho
river was rcnowed and that as Boon
ns conditions In tho lumber market
warranted work would bo begun.
Tlio only uncertain thing In tho wholo
plan was tho exact dato of beginning.
In glvjng their Interviews to the
representative of The Bulletin both
gentlemen ngreed that as full state
ment of their plans nu possible wns
due to the people of Bend in return
for their friondly nttjtudo shown In
the recent city election wheroby ar
rangements woro made to exempt
their mill slto from city taxation. .
