The Lakeview Examiner says:
It is reported that information
was recently telephoned from
Bend to La I'ine that two men of
the former place had made a
wager as to when construction
work on the Oregon Trunk south
of Bend was to begin. One has
bet that work will commence by

opinion differed thinks that it
won't begin before May 1st.
Both are said to be near railroad

"Uncle Sam" is somewhat an
tiquated in the matter of hand
ling the mails as well as other
departments. A private individ
ual is dealt with rather severely
by this same "Uncle" if a law or
ruling is transgressed, yet if the
government has fallen down it's
different. There should bo some
means to bring this fact to the
attention of the department and
make such amends us are nec
cessary. Our "Uncle" shouldn't
be allowed to "monkey," with
us any more man ho allows an
individual to go unpunished.
Carl Welker writes this office
that he has not found things in
Honolulu as it had been repre
sented to him and his position
with the government is not at
all satisfactory, therefore he ex
pects to be home some time in
March, "never more to roam
from his own fireside." Instead
of placing him on duty in Hono
lulu as he expected, he was
transferred 28 miles out into the
mountains to watch over some
government work that may be
shut down at at any time. The
accomodations are not good and
is no place for his family. The
provisions he describes as not
being fit for a Harney county
hog. When you strike at Carl's
Blomuch he is hit in a very vital
spot, as he is a good feeder and
therefore we are not surprised at
his decision to come home.
