The State Good Roads Associa

which reads: "No county shall
create any debts or liabilities
which shall singly or in the ng-

except to suppress insurrection
or repel invasion or to build per
manent roads within tho county,
but debts for permanent roads
shall be incurred on approval of

the passage of the amendment
permitting the bonding of the

made toward permanent improve

credit we find the most obvious
cause of the prevailing depres-
Rinn. The 1 nk that connects
Fabor with capital is not broken,
Ibut we may not deny that it is
Jess cohesive than it should be or
than conditions warrant. Fin
ancially, the country is stronger
than ever before in its history.

Money is held by the banns in
Abundance and rates are low.
'Why then does Capital pause
upon tho tnresnoiu oi invest

to be plain. It awaits adjust-
i ment of the relations of govern-
Imentto business. Such, at any
i rate, is the plea, and pressure is
! constantly brought to bear upon
executives and courts to make
I' haste haste which, in our judg
ment, would result in less speed.
Great complications growing out
of mightily changed conditions
call for the most serious consid
eration. To settle a grave ques
tion offhand is only to invite dis
aster. Better not settle it at all
until n reasonable certainty can
be felt that it can be settled

primary requirement. Hut the

When properly roasted and blend

make it probably the most deli

The nectar of the Gods was pro

but its a sure thing, that if those
Gods, had ever had one sip of a
real (rood coffee, for instance:
Harney County Blend, nectar

livion. To paraphase tho remark
of the Englishman: Doubtless, the
Lord could have made a better

Blend Cofree if he had tried, but
doubtless the Lord never tried.

A Mr. Miller of Burns, who
passed through Prineville last
Thursday noon with a fine now
seven-passenger Thomas Flyer,
accidently set fire to the machine
at Otto Gray's place on Crooked
river that evening and it was
burned in a few minutes.
Mr. Miller lit a cigar and threw
tho lighted match over his shoul
der. It fell in the rear seat
where his clothing and a quanti
ty of oil and gasoline were being
carried. Ho went into the house
and returned a little later to find

Everything was burned, includ

According to late advices hero
it is tho opinion that work on the

That is thoro will be no halt in
the work after the completion of

ity for this assertion coming from(
any official of the Hill people, it
is generally discussed that plans
have gone thus far.
Although work in other sec
tions has been curtailed to some

be no cessation of activity in the I
central Oregon field. Things
have been rather quiet in mo

that is so far as affecting the in

Mm work of the Hill people goes
on and the rumor that there will

optimistic interview published in
this issue all tend to an encour
aging outlook. The Bend Bulle
tin says in its last issue:
Engineer K. K. Kuney and
Contractor Bryan left last Wed
nesday for a trip to Burns, re
luming Sunday. A rough in
spection was made of the country
traversed by the line surveyed
southeastward from Bend. It is
said that that road will bo one of
tho cheapest to operate in the
west, because of easy grades and
curves, and will probably make
nnsslliln a reduction of several
hours in the time required to
travel between the coast and the
Missouri river. Mr. Kuney has
now returned to his survey camp
and will close up the work there
in a few days.
