County Court Sets Septem

Election of Officers of
new Irrigation District
20,000 Acres to be Watered
September' 16th has been set by the
county court as the date when the
Dead Ox Flat irrigation district of
20,000 acres shall elect its board of
Ave directors and other officers.
After their election these officers
will set the exact boundaries of the
The water will be pumped on the
vast tract of land by electricity from
the district's power plant which is to
be erected on the Payette river. On
June 12 the government granted a
power site permit on the Payette to
W. F. Homan, cashier of the Ontario
National bank, who is looking after
the interest of the settlers under the
proposed irrigation project. Assoc
iated with Mr. Homan as members
of a committee to further the details
of the project are H. L. Poorman, A.
Jaquish, Henry Bier, C. F. Hagar,
Roy Kelley, and Willard Youst.
The power site granted by the gov
ernment is on the north and south
forks of Payette river and the plant
to be erected will generate rO.OOO
horsepower which can be transmitted
to the pumping plant on the Snake
River. The settlers expect to UBe
this power for lighting their houses
and barns, running of farm machine
ry, etc., as well as for pumping of
water on the 20,000 acre district.
This project ia located on the high
bench of the Dead Ox Flat and ex
tends along the Snake river for many
miles and ia "considered one of the
best sections of this part of Malheur
county. The highest lift required
will be 350 feet, and there will be one
or two outlets to irrigation ditches be
low the 350-feet limit, so that not
nearly all of the water for the 20,000
acrea will need to be lifted 850 feet.
Thia 350-foot lift will probably be the
highest water lift along the Snake
