A person of the ideal pieces of literature which has arrive below our observation, appeared past week in a Bend newspaper. After studying it a next time we have determined not even to credit it for there is no doubt but that all people who reads it will know wherever it originated.

Bend undoubtedly has it in for Judge Wallace of Prineville, county choose of Criminal County, and lawful advisor of the North Device Irrigation District.

Extensive are living the Decide, that Central Oregon, other than Bend, could proceed to are living. Here is the article:

“Not content material with obtaining “swiped” the McKenzie Freeway off the initial point out freeway map and throwing it from Sisters to Prineville in its place of Bend, as was at first meant by the point out legislature, Decide N.G. Wallace of Prineville now proposes to transform the title of the freeway to “Ochoco.”

“Ochoco” is an outstanding community title for a smaller river and a extremely commendable irrigation undertaking,” mentioned a Bend person on becoming proven the intention of the worthy Choose as described in a Prineville paper last week “but it is a bad title for a point out road traversing the McKenzie Go on just one of the number of and at the very same time the finest passes about this outstanding vary of mountains. The marvel is that Wallace, in his egotism, did not have 1 of his pals recommend that the identify be changed to “Wallace Freeway.”

Another Central Oregon man, not residing in Bend, at the time accustomed to the approaches of the terrific cattle and hose region east of the Cascades, vouched-safe and sound the information and facts that it has usually been customary to modify the name of stolen animals in get to include up their identification.

The general experience is that it was presumptuous adequate to choose the highway, but that shifting its identify will locate but small favor with the greater part of Central Oregon.
