Kiirfncu of OcoloKlnilly Itcct'iit Flow
Changed by Qiicmhlng In ltlvcr,
Theory Het 1'orlh In
Crortby Itcport.
Tho tendency to underestlmuto tho
ago of Lava' buttu nnd Its lava, and
of tho lavas genornlly of nil this
region, is duo, chlotly, to a falluro
to npproclato tho Inertness of tfio
climate, duo especially to Its dryness.
If Lava butto Is, ns wo must believe,
tho Inst word up to tho present tlmo
In tho volcanic history of tho upper
Deschutes volley, wo may woll feel
reassured ns to tho stability of tho
geologic conditions. For, if thou
sands of years havo elapsed slnco the
last cataclysm, tho next ono, although
that much nearer, can hardly bo re
garded ns Imminent.
Ilrlikbnt" Lnvn.
Tho surface of tho Lava butto flow,
nnd tho same Is truo of all tho lator
eruptions, Is specially characterized
by its oxtramoly ragged ruggedness
nnd roughnoss. Bqually distinctive
Is tho extreme baso of tho flow,
whero It invaded tho channel of tho
river. Tho sudden quonchlng and
cooling of t!o lava prevents tho ex
pansion of thu occluded steam and
tho lava Is loft in a detiso, hard,
shining stato, and broken Into close
fitting cuboldal blocks, resembling
brick-bats in slzo and shape. For
want of n better namo, wo fell Into
tho habit of calling this typo of
basnlt tho "brick-bat" lava, tho prod
uct of tho sudden cooling which
makes It donso nnd hard, and tho sud
den quonchlng nnd crackling which
gives it tho characteristic form. Un
der different conditions tho block
may vary greatly In slzo, though ro-
tnlnlng tho cuboldal form. Thus tho
body of lava threo miles long, ono to
two nnd a half miles wldo and 200
to over 300 foot high, with latoral
slopes of -10 to 45 degrees, to which
Davis lako is duo, Is brokon Into rec
tangular and cuboldal blocks, with
out ndmtxturo of scorla.dust, lapllll
or othor forms of lava. This scorns
to bo tho normal reaction, under cer
tain conditions, of lava and water,
tho eruption or extrusion of lava to
which Davis lako Is duo having como
up in tho bed of Davis creek.
The Great Fault FNhiire.
Bxtonding southeasterly from tho
northeastern baso of Lnva butto for
two nnd a half miles, and possibly
farther, is n very pronounced nnd un
mlstakablo fault flssuro, breaking tho
great basalt of tho eastern slopo of
tho Deschutes vnlloy. Tho down
throw Is to tho southwest or toward
tho vulloy and ranges from 10 foot or
less to possibly 40 feet. Tho flssuro
Is, in part, n truo chasm 20 to 40
foot wldo, Into which tho huga col
umnar blocks of basalt hnvo fallen
promiscuously, nnd which tho von
turosomu explorer may penotrnto to
a depth of CO foot or more'.
Tho flssuro passes under tho road
nnd can bo followod to tho very edgo
of Lnva butto nnd, If continued In
this lino, must pnss under tho north-
castorn half of tho butto. Hut wo
searched In vain for It on tho far sldo
of tho butto nnd in tho county bo-
yond, toward Oroon hill. Apparent
ly It onds bononth tho butto, but nil
nltornntlvo vlo'w is opon to us, for,
in tho forest oast of tho road, tho
fault Is soon, nt ono or moro points,
to ond nnd thon bogln again n little
to ono sldo, and boyoud tho point
whore It sooius finally to ond In. por-
Imps, merely n moro docldod offsot.
Howovor thnt may bo, an offsot to
tho southwest bouonth Lava butto Is
not spoclnlly Improbable and that
might woll bring tho flssuro Into co
lucldonco with tho crater, a highly
prohnblo and normal association. In
othor words, tho crntor must origi
nate In n profound flssuro, and only
fault flsqtiroa aro cortnluly doop
enough to tap tho groat Bubterrauonn

A conservative estimate on tho
population of Hend and Its environs,
mado public Friday, whon R. L. Polk
directory representatives completed
tholr enumeration of tho population
of this city, gives a total of 6500,
contrasted with tho 5415 reported in
tho government census, mado early
in tho year. In tho later enumera
tion, a few residences Just boyond tho
city limits nro included, and also
woods workers In tho logging camps
of Tho Shovlin-Hixon Company and
tho Drooks-Scanlon Lumber Co.,
but, eliminating theso, tho actual
population of Dend would run ap
proximately G000. Polk figures aro
often taken In preference to United
States statistics when accuracy Is de
sired. Enumerators declared that Bend Is
undoubtedly tho fastest-growing
town they havo over worked In, and
found It necessary to go over tho
samo districts soveral times, as peo
plo woro moving Into Bend at the
rato of two or three families a day.
They found few who wero leaving.
Tho unusually largo number of stnglo
mon living hero was commented on,
tho dlroctory mon declaring that If
ovory ono of th: bachelors they had
counted had nn avorago sized family,
tho population of Bend would bo in
creased from 4000 to 5000. An es
pecially large proprtlon of unmar
ried men was found In the ranks of
tho harbors.
Number Furnihcl.
W. E. Genack, under whoso direc
tion tho enumeration was made, re
ported that, as a pari of tho directory
work, 100 houses In Bend had been
provided with numbers. That moro
woro not similarly equipped was duo
to. tho fact that many housoholdors
woro unwilling to purchase tho metal
numerals until later.
Tho population of Bond is growing
bo rapidly that, although It is tho
custom of R. L. Polk & Co. to put
out a directory only onco In two
yoars in a city of this class, Bend will
probably bo ready for another publi
cation of tho kind within another
twelve-month, Mr. Gonack stated. In
connection with this year's directory,
a street guldo will probably bo is
sued. Enumeration of tho county outside,
of Bend will bo started In tho very
near future and tho book should bo
rondy for distribution nt tho end of
two moro months, it was Indicated
by Mr. Gcunclr.

' In'tho face of a report by City En
gineer Robert B. Gould advising
against tho use of Wlllito for paving
tho streets of Bend, tho city council.
In adjourned session Monday, vot
ed to accept tho petitions of property
owners in tho business section, oa
Congress street and on Dolawaro, all
of which call for Wlllito. "Tho peo
plo want It; let's give it to thorn,"
was tho way Councilman, Mageo out
lined tho situation, and tho council
In general took this vlow of tho mat
tor. Minor changes In tho descrip
tions of tho areas to bo paved may
be made later, It was stipulated la
tho motions of Councilman Payne
which covered tho contemplated Im
provements. Mr. Gould's report Included tho
opinions of prominent paving ebor
and laid emphasis on the chemists'
analyses of Wlllito. Theso stated
that tho copper sulphate used with
tho asphalt docs not enter Into chem
ical combination, and henco gives the
pavement no claims for superiority.
Some of the opinions were favorable,
but a majority advised against so
thin a surfacing without a suitable
Report Ignored.
"Steeped In Warronlte," was May
or Eastes' comment on the mass of
telegrams and letters which consti
tuted tho documentary evidence on
which tho city" engineer's report was
Mr. Gould stated that Willlta
might give "pretty good service" for
flvo years, but considered that the
city's immediate need Is tho only real
reason why this type of paving should
bo adopted. Cinders, he said, might
mftko a fair foundation, but rocks
would bo infinitely better.
"It's our only solution," Mayor
Eastes emphasized, "and, personally,
I consider these telegrams and let
tors criticizing Wlllito to bo preju
diced. Sometimes common sense Is
hotter than science"
When the question was finally
put, Councilman McPhorson ex
plained hlaffirmatlvo voto: "I am
not convinced that this two-Inch sur
facing Is what wo want," ho said,
"but tho only way Is to experiment
for ourselves. I consider that the
business sqction, Congress and Dola
waro aro as far as wo are Justified la
going with this typo of pavement."
Following adjournment, Council
man Rhodes expressed hlmsolf as be
ing of tho samo opinion.
City Manager Advised.
Tho advisability of employing a
city manager, whoso duties will In
clude those of tho present recorder,
was discussed toward tho close of
tho sossion and will bo brought up
again at tho first meotlng n Sep
tember. It was pointed out by Mr.
McPherson and by the present re
corder that tho employment of such
a manager, to glvo his entlro tlmo to
city affairs, would easily savo Bond
moro than enough to pay his salary,
"The handllug of city affairs Is a
business, and It must bo run as
such,',' Mr. McPhorson declared.
