JACICRAliniTS AND COYOTES.
Reports 'from the country districts
'to the effect that Jnckrnbblts are in
creasing nnd threaten tho farmer
wlth'n greater loss thnn ho has over

us"to -wonder whether ho Is not n
victim of government activity.
For some time past a government
rtrappbr has worked in this section,
killing coyotes. Ho has beon aulto
'successful, nnd nt the snmo time tho
stata bounty law has operated to
nelp reduce tho number of coyotes.
As n result, coyotes, nlso a pest
but the pest of the stockman rather
than the farmer have become
scarcer nnd scarcer. And as tho
'coyoto becomes scarce, tho Jackrabtilt
Nature maintains balances. If
there were no birds insects would
cat every growing green thing; it
thero were no insects many birds
would 'probably lack sufficient food.
And so it is with tho rabbit and the
coyote. Tho coyote will not multiply
taster than tho food supply of n sec
tion will permit; and that food sup
ply is largely rabbits. So, in a
natural state, when rabbits arc
abundant coyotes are likely to be,
but as they become more abundant
tho rabbit supply is decreased, and
ns' it decreases bo do the number of
coyotes. In short, a balance is pre
When, however, tho coyoto Is re
moved the rabbit, freed from the do
struction of his natural enemy, in'
creases; and that, apparently. Is
what is happening here now. And
as-far as 'the destruction of coyotes
is' carried on for the benefit of the
stockman, then the farmer is being
made to suffer on his account.
Both are Important members of
tho community nnd everything should
be dono to further the interests of
each. In the present situation the
remedy would seem to be for the
Biological survey to busy Itself as
actively in destroying jackrabbits as
coyotes. TJien neither interest would
suffer, but both would gain. t

. TO PROMOTE GOOD WILL.
There was .a tlmo last winter when
the, (negationists of Jefferson county
.suspected that we Intended to do
what we could here to prevent them
from getting water from the De
schutes. t There, was also consider
able1' feotlnV In Bend that the con
tract which the North Unit was mak
ing with tho C. O. I. Co., was nentfy
planned .10 arry tho waters of the
river by Bend, and out of Deschutes
county, .lqaving nothing for future
irrigation needs In this county.
Fortunately the suspicions were
dispelled. Both sections came to
realize that the irrigation future of
each was tied up with the other, and
that tho wholo thing to look to and
to work for was the development of
the whole Deschutes "poject, includ
ing the North canal project In this
county, and the North unit project
in Jefferson, as well fla the east and
west units' near Bend and Tumalo.
With the, realization came concert
ed action, and as a result the recla
mation sorvlco announced that a
study of the reservoir possibilities of
Renham falls would be made.
In a few days expert geologists
will be hero to begin the study of
Bonham falls. Since their coming1
was first announced last winter, it
has been the Bend Commercial club
that has continuully prodded the rec
lamation servico to get them here,
which ought to be further evidence,
it any were needed, of the club's In
terest in the wholo matter. As a final
touch, would it not be desirable for
(ho club to invito representatives of
tho North unit district here to meet
the geologists and share In any dis
cussion of tho project thero may bet
Tho whole thing calls for mutual
trust and good will.
Y. M. C. A. CHARGES.
Now and again thero Is n revival
of charges ngalnst tho Y. M. C. A.
nnd Its work In France. Probably
they will be nlred sporadically ns
often ns the association comes Into
prominence by engaging In any
especial activity nt home. Such mis
takes ns may have been made will
bo seized by opponents nnd ns much
mnde of them, us possible.
The Bulletin has said In tho nast
that ItNind no brief for any religious
organization, nor for any other, nnd
It has nono for the Y. M. C. A., but
it thinks It worth while to point out
that though the association may
hnvo fallen down In some places It
nlso did n wholo lot of standing up.
Tho fair man will weigh the good
hnd tho bad before he condemns,
nnd wd venture to say that having
done so he will find the good to out
weigh tho bad.
Wo think It probably fair to com
pare the Y. SI. C. A. with the army.
In some places there was weakness
and Inefficiency, but on tho wholo it
did a darned good Job.
