An Important farm land develop-
mont following tho recent formation
of tho Squaw Creek Irrigation dis
trict Is announced today by J. I).
Miner In tho purchaso of tho Lone
Hollow ranch from tho Iilack Dutto
Land & Livestock Co. and tho pine
Ithg of It on tho market on easy
torms. Tho ranch hns boon pur
chased by tho Irrigation district and
Mr. Miner has been omployed as
sales agent.
Situated In tho Lower Drldgo sec
tion, partly in Deschutes and partly
In Jefferson county, tho ranch com
prises 2,040 acres, of which 1,400
acres aro Improved. Tho ranch
holds n water right for 1,800 ncros
under tho Squaw Creek system and
In tho past yoar 800 acres were In
Crops Aro Good.
The chlof crops raised on tho
ranch have been alfalfa and rye,
which havo been used for feeding
tho livestock carried by tho com
pany. Othor smaller ranches in tho
Lower Bridge section havo success
fully raised corn, raolons and other
tender crops In commercial quan
tities, as woll as tho othor standard
crops of this aoctlon.. Tho Long
IJollow ranch is especially suited to
livestock production because of the
adjacent ran go running from tho
ranch boundary back to tho summit
of tho Cascades. According to A. S
Holmes, who bs chargo of tho prop
erty, alfalfa will cut threo tons to
tho aoro.
Tho elevation of the ranch Is stnt
cdio bo 2,740i foot, or about 800

Another Important development In

High compliments wcro paid tho

ho said, and a moro earnest war
spirit than in ony other city of tho

of organizing tho Loyal Legion of
Loggers and Lumbermen. Captain
Farr, who is a giant of six and a half
feet and built in proportion, spoko
with approval of tho formation of tho
homo guard company and praised the
patriotic spirit shown by tho men
who wcro Joining.
Following his remarks, W. G. Mc
Phorsou spoko on tho need of a
homo guard and asked for tho sup
port of tho Commercial club in ob
taining an appropriation from tho
county court for tho purchase of uni
forms. Principal Grant of tho high
school also discussed tho guard, say
ing It was a civic asset, needed for
tho disciplinary power It offered and
as a means of helping to train boys
of tho high school who woro anxious
to Join.
Tho club voted to appoint a com
roltteo to assist tho guard In obtain
ing its uniforms and a committee
was also voted to confer with tho
city council and suggest plans for the

ment. J. A. Eastcs urged tho forma

SALEM, April 4. (Special to Tho
Bulletin.) Members of tho public
service commission aro becoming ap
palled nt reports coming from vari
ous parts of tho stato relative to
sentiment developing as to tho bill
providing for tho decapitation of the
members of that commission. Tho
bill Is duo to go boforo tho clectorata
next November and Its immediate
animus Is tho order of tho commis
sion increasing tho street car fare in
Portland from 5 cents to C cents.
When tho bill was first suggested
tho boys about tho commission wcro
Inclined to treat tho subject lightly,
hut their consideration of the situa
tion Is becoming much heavier since
tho folks from homo aro being heard
Portland Is a veritable hotbed of
anti-commission talk nnd tho various
mombors are being labeled every
thing from crooks to imbeciles, es
pecially by the straphangers. Soaaa
such outburst was expected for a
tlmo and It was beliored that it
would dto down, but tho sentlaaeat
seems to be blooming moro fully In
stead of withering. Jurlgo Henry
McGinn, magnetic orator, fa farming
the flamo of discontent until In some
places It has risen to fever heat.
SurprlKO Is Sprang.
Dut the surprise to the commis
sion has come from the communities
outstdo of Portland. Not only In- the
valley; but In Southern Oregon aad
Eastern Oregon It Is reported that a
decided sentiment has sprung up to
tho effect that the commission is out
living its usefulness.
Two big things aro mllltattag
against tho commission. One of
these is tho 6-cout fare order and
tho consequent talk that tho commis
sion Is playing its cards to tho big
gest utility corporation In the state,
and tho other Is federal control of
railroads, which Is causing many
people to assort that over half of the
reasons tor tho commission's exist
ence havo been removed.
With one side hammering on tho
utility end and the other side on tho
railroad end, the commission is find
ing due cause for worry.
On top of this, another significant
phase Is found in tho fact that ap
parently ithore will bo no opposition
to tho candidacy of Frank J. Miller
for re-election as member of the
commission from tho stat6 at large.
Thoro was talk of opposition boforo
tho rendition of the 6-cent faro opin
ion, but after that the talk subsided.
Commission members ithomselves ad
mit In talking the situation ovor that
tho opposition may have vanished
from tho vory uncertainty of chore
bolng any job to bo elected to after
tho Novomber eruption.
No Prophecy to Make.
This is no prophecy that ho com
mission Is going to bo abolished, or
no hint that it should bo abolished.
Tho situation simply simmers down
to tho fact that tho commission U
badly scared nnd jobs at ?4,000 por
are nat numerous. Uesldes, thoro Is
every indication that the coming
welter will bo a hard ono.
Tho people next Novcmbor also
will bo called upon to vote on a slight
nilllngn tax to take caro of military
exigencies for tho Jioxt blonulum.
Tho 6 por cent, limitation amend
ment makes it imporativo that If a
levy greater than C per cent, ovor
stho levy of the preceding year Is al
lowed, It must bo allowed only at
tho dictates of a majority of tho
voters. When tho limitation amend
