t ' BUY THE PARK.
f It Is accepted as n fact that tho
fUnplnttrtf strip lying along the east
liido of tho river and adjoining Park
(addition Is somo day to bo a city
Sirk. Its owner, Tho Bend Company,
.WMO held it with tho expectation that
Stlzoue day tho city wpuldwant to ac
quire it for park purposes. Last
summer it was pointed out that It
was tlmo to bo planning for city
parks and Tho Bond Company put
a price on this tract but nothing was
iono by tho city.
(Slnco that tlmo tho park Idea has
been given Impetus by tho announce
ment of tho proposed donation by
sTho Shevlin-Hlxon Company of tho
x Tumalo canyon In memory of T. L.
Shcvlln. The fact that tho city is to
have so fine a recreation spot at a
llEtanco from town has led peoplo
to, give mora thought to having nn
jofher in town fand this river bank
ttr&ct has been looked on ns the one.
Mtlln tho meantime, wo imagine, the
pressure on tho owner is becoming
Jgrcater and greater to plat th,a pro
perty nnd sell It for building sites.
Platted nnd opened for salo it would
probably bo bought out faster than
any tract ever opened for salo in
!bvnd:, It is a public .benefit to hold
fife'e tract for the city but The Bend
'Company cannot bo expected to hold
He 'indefinitely. Sinco the peoplo are
pretty- well agreed that it ought to
jXe bought' why not mako tho pur
chase now? Presumably an election
stto be called to vote bonds for tho
tr. bridge. Cannot the park bonds

THE IRRIGATION- CONGRESS.
Central Oregon has always sent
n big delegation to tho Oregon Irrl
gatlou Congress ami this year
should to no exception. Other sec
tions of the state know tho Ira-'

gress, but no 'other, wo bellove,
has so great Irrigation possibilities
as ure to be 'found In the Deschutes
In other years tho Central Ore

gress with halt a dozen matters
tor which they wanted indorse
ment. Matter? of district law havo
been under consideration or tho
problems of individual districts or
segregations havo been up for dis
cussion and though each year has
seen some real accomplishment tho
questions ot particular Interest to
this section havo usually been left
In the back ground.
This year there Is one big thing
to bo done In an Irrigation' way.
That Is to secure tho' beginning ot
work on the Deschutes project. All
the preliminaries havo been cover
ed. There remains only to get the
Reclamation service in here.
If tho Central Oregon delegates
to tho congress go with tho. ono
idea, of getting: action on- Federal
aid on the Deschutes project they
can make that the big accomplish
