With tho xiew to Investigating tho

Reverend Bishop O'Uollly, of Baker
City, will arlvo In Bend tonight. To
morrow evening Bishop O'Reilly will
be the guest of W. I). Cheney nt tho
Umblom club nt a banquet at which
persons Interested In the enterprise
ulll be Invited to attend.
It Is understood that a Bite for tho
proposed hospital has been offered
freo for this purpose, but tho Identity
of Us donor, and tho location has not
been made public. At tho meeting
tomorrow evening this will likely be
mado known, and something as to
the charactor and the purposes of the
hospital will bo given out by Dlshop
Bishop O'Reilly has been a fro
quent visitor In Rend, and for some
time had In mind the establishment
nt a hospital here. Tho bishop Is
greatly Imprcssod with Bend and Its
future. On former visits ho has ex
pressed himself ns favoring tho foun
drtlon of an academy and hospital
under the auspices of the Sisters in
Rend ptnvlded local conditions were
-nlsfnctary. It has boon learned
t'nrt oxtonslvo oupport will ho given
to tho ochool tind hospital.
On a recent trip oast Illshop O'
Reilly conferred with tho hoad otn
cm of the Sisters of Charity of Na-
2rrcth. who are .'Imost exclusively
an eastern and southern order of Sis
ters of Charity. Thin order Is ono of
tho moat enterprising In the country
And tho Institutions under Its direc
tion aio known widely for tholr cm
clency and modern methods. It hau
.Iso been learned that the order la
prepared to Invest extensively In the
erection and equipment of an up-to-dr.to
academy and hospital In Bond.
Tho cntrnnca of tho Sisters into
this locality hos been doterrod for
romstlmo owing to tho ncarclty of
Sisters and tho great demand for
thorn z centers whore their hospitals
nro locatod In tho east. Tho order,
however, has had Bend under consid
eration for sometime, with tho view
t Increasing Its activity In tho west
aind it Is expected that dellnlto re
sults will follow from Bishop O'Reil
county fair tIiih vi:i:k.
Tho annual Crook county fair Is
nelng hold this week nt Prineville.
An Interesting program of races and
special attractions has been arranged

pected that flna exhibits of stock and
Agricultural products will bo shown.

ON THE BALLOT nt the coming election will nppenr
the question of removal of the county seat from Prine-
- ville to Bend, nnd the
Deschutes county from Crook county. Two years ago a
division campaign was waged and more than 00 per cent of
the voters in the proposed Deschutes county voted in favor
of division. As soon as Bt)nd
growth it was generally agreed
carry if the necessary 85 per cent vote could be assured from
the east side. When an attempt was made to obtain this
assurance Bend met with evasion and double crossing of such
nature that a removal of the
possible methad or bringing to
and was entitled to, that is, a
local bill was initiated to remove the county seat from
Prineville to Bend.
Later, assurances were received from representative
citizens of the east side that the necessary 85 per cent vote
could be obtained if division were undertaken and it is how
ncrreed that Deschutes unty will receive much more than
the 85 per cent vote needed from Prineville and the rest of
the east side, it is apparent also mat the necessary 05 per
cent vote will be cast in Deschutes county. In fact, the
certainty that the vote would be favorable has produced an
apathy which has led some to ask if the Lame were dead.
The issue is not dead. It is very much alivej ps is anything
-which the people want ,
In the few weeks remaining before election certain
aspects of the division question will be discussed here, par
ticularly that of taxation, which is one of the most impor
tant and most misunderstood. Division is the question.
County seat removal will be voted down. Get ready now to
mark your cross against removal and for division.
STATE AND CITY HEALTH

Drastic mensures are to be taken
by state and city health authorities
to remoto the present danger of pol
lutfon of the water of the Deschutes
by banishing from the rler shore tho

worse than In any othor place ho

him around rather extensively. City
Health Officer Coe has done his best
to improe conditions, but public sen
timent Is not sufficiently strong to ob
tain results. One offender was tried
while Dr. Roberg was here and fined

Tho local registrar Is Dr. U. C. Coo,
