In tho tow wooks that havo elapsed
since Tlio bulletin called intention to
what it understood to bo tho plans
.of tho North unit Irrigation district
to appropriate so much o( tho waters
ot tho Deschutes, stored at Bonhnm
falls, ns to mako Impossible the rec
lamation ot tho other units ot tho
Deschutes project In their entirety,
little has developed to throw any
clear light on tho situation. In
Prlncvllle, It ono may judge from tho
editorial expressions of tho Crook
County Journal, little attention is bo-
Ing paid' to tho matter, tho only ex
prc8slon,frjttn tho Journal being that
Hen a was wonting up a xigm mat
would hinder tho progress of the rec
lamation. Tho Redmond Spokes
man, showing moro Interest, has car
ried statements to the effect that tho
other portions of tho project had
nothing to fear from tho North unit.
Ono of these statements is from A.
D. Anderson, the secretary of the
North unit district, who says that no
water grab Is contemplated. On the
other hand, tho Madras Pioneer,
aroused by what Tho Bulletin had
charged, asserts that tho North unit
Is right. The question which natur
ally suggests Itself in answer to tho
Pioneer is, "Right in what:" Other
questions were asked the Pioneer
two weeks ngo which remain 'unan
swered, but It it will devoto ercn a
Uttlo space, to this last one, we may
know better what tho facts are.
Of course, tho necessary Implica
tion from tho Pioneers' assertion that
tho North unit is right Is that it is
right wherein Tho Bulletin has been
asserting it was wrong. That is, tho
fact is admitted and justification as
serted. This is contrary to Mr. An
derson's position. He says no grab
Is Intended. Which ot the two Is
Tight? Ono conclusion at least may
bo drawn, and that Is that In Jeffer
son county there Is some recognition
ot the possibility that the North unit
will want water to the Injury of tho
rest of the project.
So far as the suggestion from
Prlnevillo Is concerned, we desire to
point out that Bend docs not want
to hinder the progress of reclama
tion, nor is it looking for a tight. It
prefers to cooperate. On that ac
count Mr. Anderson's recent state
ment is gladly received. Now, If
Mr. Anderson will go a little farther
and tell us how the north unit pro
poses to divide the water, and what
Bend can -do-to help In the promo
tion of tho general reclamation
scheme, we believe he will find the
help forthcoming.

question, "What Is NowsT" Nows

Each editor, ot course, tried to define

difficult, It not Impossible, to get
Into words n complete definition that

It is a .'reactionary statement for
nny private . citizen to make that
newspaper men should be excluded
from public meetings. It is to un
derrate the Intelligence of a body of
business men whoso intelligence is
above tho average lo think that a
recommendation urging the exclusion
of newspaper men from the meetings
of tho Bend Commercial club would
be received with enthusiasm.
Tho public and newspapers know
that newspapers make errors. But
no newspaper maliciously makes
them. No newspaper will continu
ouflly misrepresent a citizen or an In
stltutlon. Newspapers regard too
highly tho printed word.
It Is only to defame tho nowspa
pers ot this city that ono prlvuto citl

ns tho exeluslon of the press from
Commercial cluli meetings. News
paper men attend theso gatherings
weekly that they may fairly give the

When Dllman cavo was redlsor
ered last year Its explorers came
back asserting that the cavo was
onco an underground river. Even
Stowart Edward Whlto, who ought to
know enough not to guess at some
thing about which he knows nothing,
called the cavo an ancient river bed.
Fortunately wo now have, in tho
Crosby report on tho llonhnm falls
reservoir sito, tho opinion of an ox
pert geologist on the formation ot tho
cave, and he says that tho cave does
not appear to havo been occupied by
a stream of water. Only slightly
technical, this portion ot Professor
Crosby's report Is extremely Interest
Ing, and helps even tho layman to
uudestand moro exactly how the
cave came to be. Indeed, tho whole
report is interesting. Although It
deals with a single problem, It neces
sarily covers tho main features of
tno geological history of tho upper
Deschutes valloy, and wo believe that
tho readers of The Bulletin will wet
come an opportunity tp soo it.
For that reason wo havo decided
to publish the report complete, oxcopt
for 4ho wholly technical portions and

As school officials do not Intend

they are being built with that In

In tho last eplsodo ho meets with

released by the lovo of another mor
tal. Tho boy breaks tho spell and
tho mortal tells him this Is not tho
real heart of tho world, because love
Is not found. They leave the spot,
