Rend Bulletin: Friend of George
S. Young here have received letters
from him containing Information
concerning the Lakevlew country,
whero ho is ut present doing engin
eering work.
Mr. Young points out that the
rouds from Bend to within 25 miles
of Lukeview are in excellent shape.
But beyond that point they have
much sticky "gumbo." While Prlue
ville people havo been attempting
to establish what they call "an all
year round" road from Prlnvllle to
Lakevlew. Mr. Young says that
such Is an impossibility, as the roads
are practically impassable for a cou
plo of winter months. North and
South roads from Bend, on the con
trary, are reasonably dry and passa
ble for 13 months.
With the exception of the imme
diate Lakevlew country, Mr. Young
says Northern Lake County has ad
mirable roads. He reports finding- a
very friendly feeling towards Bend
in that territory,

MEXICAN CRISIS NOW CENTERING ON ISSUE BE
TWEEN THOSE SEEKING TO SECURE
MEDIATION
"GOOD OFFICES" URGED UPON HUERTA
While Many Hope Mediation May Be Successful To
Adjust Mexican Difficulties, Others Regard
Resort to Arms as Inevitable After
What Has Occured
'i'hhiii";t)ii, April 2!. Tho Mexican crisis is now wntcr
inj on l!i- issue between those? who are seekiu"; through tlie
tfool offices to secure mediation through Latin America to seek
".mind for adjustment and those who regard the resort to arms
j!s in inevitable consequence of what has occurred.
Tr aighout today two distinct branches of activity were
rM.initest here that of tly envoys of the Argentine govern
ment and Chile, formulating a plan of adjustment to be sub
mitted to the Tnited States and the HuVrta regime, and that of
tlu' iniPtaiy and naval forces of the United States, which con
tinues to go forward steadily in preparation for any eventua
lity. The arrival of General Funston and a brigade of f0)0
.roops ut Vera Cruz, was one of the events of the day.
Chief interest was directed tt ward the conference of Lat
in American envoys, lasting throughout the day and part of
the night.
At the Whit house, . President Wilson and advisers held
lengthy conferences ami the spirit of. satisfaction over the pro
gvss of the negotiations was apparent.
Secretary Bryan was called upon by ambassadors and min
isters of European as well as South American countries. Among
the visitors was the French ambassador, M. .lusserand, who ex
pressed the warm sympathy of his country in the cause of me
diation. With the exception of the three South American
countries, no power has taken any ofiicial action, although the
European diplomats are doing their utmost to further the cause
of peace.
Sir Cecil Spriug-Hice, the British ambassador, also was
one of Secretary Bryan's callers, his purpose hying to report
results of the interview held yesterday in the Mexican Capital
by Sir Lionel Carden, the British minister, with General Huer
ta. Sir Lionel strongly impressed upon the general the opin
ion of his own government that he should promptly accept tho
good offices tendered by the three South American republics.
The peacemakers 'take the view that their work is one of
far reaching effect, not only in the present. controversy, but as
in affecting the continued pence of the western hemisphere
through the united efforts of American nations, north, south
and central.

150 Loads of Gra

Picks, shovels, hoes, rakes aud
various sorts of implements cared lit
tle who used them last Saturday,
Good Roads Day. In Lakevlew about
fifty men and seven teams did more
than could- have been accomplished
In many days otherwise in the im
provement of Bullard street. The re
salt far surpassed the expectations of
the Street Committee and others who
were responsible for the observance
of the occasion. All the work in this
city was done on Bullard Street.
Over 150 loads of gravel were plac
ed on this avenue improving it to
the valne of several hundred dollars.
From the intersection of Park, the
street was crowned west to within a
few hundred feet of the railroad
track. The remainder of the street
will probably be finished this sea
son, gravel being taken from the
ditch below the flume for the work.
Street CQtamitteeman Lee Beall
and Marshal fttriplin engineered the
job, and the work was well system
lzed, no efforts being expended use
lessly. The workmen began assem

continued with great push and vigor

who donated their services withe

city's old reliable for all purposes,
was also on hand with his pair of
black steeds.
Many who volunteered their ser
vices on the pick and shovel gang
are also entitled to praise for the
good work they did in saving the
town money for this improvement.
One noticeable feature amongst the
laborers was the presence of so many
practically new people of the com
munity, there being but few of the
old time residents. One man whom
we noticed in particular at the gra
