tlik OUTGOING COUNCIL
InaVew days the council which
has administered the affairs of the
city o'Bend for tho paBt two years
will go 'iul of office to be succeeded
by a, neV set ot men chosen at the
Novem')- election. Tho Bulletin
wishes' bow to take the opportunity
of thanlclng and congratulating the
the outgoing council for
ces which they have ren
dered the city.
Infsaylbg that the council Is to be
congta'lujuted on the quality of serv
ice whltjii it has given, we are not
urimlQtfrni of the fact that on two
major Usues which arose soon after
.it took 'charge of the city government
wo beicved it made serious mistakes.
Wo refer to the Gilson water fran
chise' 'and to the women's protective
division. , On these we vigorously op
posed. tho council. That pur opposi
tion vfi'l right was Indicated by the
nctlonjof the people In voting down
the franchise and in forcing the adop
tion bftho protective division ordi
nance We think that the council, in
Its later, pctlon in respect to the. pro
tectlvo5' division, has signally failed to
obscrve"'lfs Intent nnd to secure .the
best results' possible undjr It. When
we havo ,sld this, the sum ot our
criticism Is complete.

the good people of Bend may know
the true situation.
I am operating this hotel under a
Seattle, Washington, which has very
near a year to run, and have been so
operating, personally, since on or
about the 13th day of August, 1922
From that date down, to, and In'
cludlngthe present t'me I have en'
deavored to conduct a clean and re
spectable house, and I honestly be
lieve that I -have done this with a
large degree of success. It may be
true that some few violators, or
would-be violators, of the liquor law
have taken rboms Jn the hotel, as
they do 'In all hotels, not only In
Bend, but elsewhere, but all 6f tho
peace officers of this city, including
Wlllard Houston, have had my re
peated assurances that If they ever
knew that a law was being, or had
been, violated in the Wright hotel,
that they had free access, as far as
I was concerned, at all times without
a search or other warrant, and that
I would aid them in every way I
could to help them In the enforce'
ment of the laws.
Many employes of tho mills mako
their homo and headquarters at the
hotel and I" feel that In Justico to
them, as well as myself, the public
should know that Mr. Houston has
made statements regarding tho hotel,
and its management, that are not
warranted by the facts.
