THURSDAY, Jl)L.Y S 1919.
Saturday's election finished tho
job that wns begun last winter when
the now city administration flrat dis
covered that It wns going to be short
ot funds with which to pay the city's
running exponaesfAslJo from tho
council's abortive nttompU to caro
for tho situation by a bond lssuo, tho
business has proceeded slowly, but
Inevitably, to the proper conclusion
tho payment ot our bills by a tax.
Wo say "Inevitably" because wo
thoroughly believe that the people
may bo depended upon, when all tho
facts aro bctoro them and they have
had tlmo to digest them, to do tho
right thing. In this case the right
thing has been done.
Tho council wns reported to have
been soro at tho defeat ot tho bond
measures at tho previous election In
May. It it was sore then it ought
to bo highly gratified now becuuso
tho pcoplo have taken their word
for tho amount ot money needed and
signed a check for tho full amount.
Thcro has been no argument over
items or charges that all that was
called for was not needed. In short,
tho former voto did not Indicate lack
of confidence in tho council so much
as dislike of tho bonding measure.
Full confidence Is shown by the big
majority in favor of tho tax measure.
Tho Tote In favor of the library tax
is tho first real recognition ever
.given hero to this most important
featuro ot our community life. With
.thisjstart it is to bo hoped that wo
shall progress to tho establishment
of a real library here.
1 FICTION' BECOME FACT.
Did you over read Kipling's "With
tho "Night Mall"?
It is tho story, imaginary, of
course, ot tho flight from England
to America ot tho air mail carrier.
Tho trip takes ono night, but in that
short space ot time all the expcrlcnca
of storm, of narrowly averted colli
sion and of swift, untroubled flight
occur. Slow freighters aro passed,
speedy pleasure craft met, other air
liners hailed. A fool skipper Is de
scribed and on tho mall ship all tho
numerous appliances and devices,
still the fruit of tho writer's imagin
ation, by which tho flight is possible,
Tho story was interesting when
written over 10 years ago nnd almost
more interesting today when a one
night flight has already been made
aeross tho Atlantic. Possibly tho
story of their experiences as told by
Alcock and Drown is more interest
ing, but thcro Is a fascination to the
author's feat ot tho Imagination and
ono wonders how Mr. Kipling could
have done as well as ho did.
Following tho story there are
copies of nows Items about flying,
classified advertisements from the
dally newspapers about flying trips,
articles lost from airplanes and
other like matters, and also display
And now in a San Francisco paper
we And an actual airplane advertise
ment, "Curtis Airplanes for Imme
diate Dellvory," "A sturdy, depend
able, cross-country machine." "In
spection w o 1 c o in e d Air Tours

Voter "high lights, county by coun

In spitb of tho knocking of( tho ro

Bend and Deschutes, Portland thanks
you, nnd Is "forcod to admit that al
though few of your voters voted
thoso who did voto woro filled with
a spirit ot generous cntorprlso."
Thanks for tho thanks, but wo
doubt it this community enrcs for

G. H. Baker in tho quotation above.
G. If. Baker Is "Bend's member of
t.he land settlement commission." It
happens tnt Mr. Dakar hns.not only

tho law under which tho commission

sion ho has mado an effort to hnvo

now Interpreted as "knocking ot tho

It docs not appear who3o this in
terpretation is, whether that ot tho
Voter editor, or ot members ot tho
commission and passed on to tho
Voter, but whoso ovcrvlt may bo it
Mr. linker did not knock tho re
construction bonding bill. On the
contrary, ho spoke and worked in
its behalf. Nor has ho "knocked"
the present law, nor his fellow com
missioners. Ho has, In all sincerity,
tried to have the law administered
as a SOLDIERS' land settlement
act, and not as u model farm experi
ment, as planned by Its originators
before tho soldier bucamo available
as a means ot getting appropriations
out ct tho legislature Tho Bend
Commercial club has expressed Its
approval of Mr. Baker's courso, nnd
tho head of tho homo servlco section
ot tho northwest division ot tho Red
Cross has stated that ho believed Mr.
As further evidence of Mr. linker's
sincerity let it be known that al
though ho could easily obtain union
labor sympathy and support in the
fight he has made In tho commission
ho has wholly refrained from taking
the matter up with any ot his union
affiliations. Ho did, howover, work
with his union friends In support of
tho reconstruction bill, which Is ono
ot tho reasons why tho favorable
voto wa3 so largo hero and not be
causo Bend wns showing its dis
approval of a knocker.
Thcro Is n thing, however, of
which tho town disapproves, nnd
that Is tho text book whose text is
tainted. Wo have a use for Mr.
Bakqr, but nono for such disregard
of facts as the Voter Is guilty of.
Perhaps It will explain whero It
got this nows about Mr. Baker's op
position to tho reconstruction bill,
end also explain Its views of the uio

THE PRICE FACTS.
It Is regrettable, but nono tho less
true, that carelessly, und sometimes
oven maliciously, wo bcllevo state
ments mado by strangers which placo
our neighbors in a bad light. Many
of us aro altogether too prono to
think truo charges or rumors that
reflect on our fellows, and sometimes,
unfortunately, wo glvo thorn further
currency without tuklng tho trouble
to investigate and ascertain tho facts.
Of such' nature, It seems to Tho
Bulletin, wero tho frequently ro-
peaieu statements that there was
profiteering in tho lumber business in
Bend, and especially that lumbar
cost more hero than elsewhere, a
matter that was discussed at the
Commercial club mooting on Wednes
day. Following that meeting Tho BulJo
tin urged tliat tho facts bo brought
out so that criticism might be ended,
at the same tlmo asserting our belief
that investigation would show that
there was no ground for tho com
plaint, and yesterday wo woro able
to present statements which cor
roborated our belief. For that we
aro very glad, and glad also to ho
able to report the concessions which
are bolng mado by tho mills to en
courage homo building here. ,
Wo cherish an optimistic belief
that if the facts of our local differ
ences could all bo brought out and
explanations made they would vanish
and wo would have a Utopian com
munity. ' Probably that Is too much
to oxpect. So long as motives nro
questioned nnd schemes aro hatched
