W estern Shoes
for th e W e s t
If we should try to manufacture shoes to be worn
in Central Africa, we probably should not make much of
a success, because we do not know the local conditions.
But we have been manu­
facturing shoes for wear in the
Northwest and West for more than
half a century.
They stand u p under our
sum m er's sunshine and our w inter's
Storms, as no other shoes can.
Because the shrinking and
stretching which cause shoes to
lose their shape and break are pre­

A complete reorganization of
the Deschutes Irrigation & Pow­
er Company probably will be ef­
fected this week. Attorneys for
all the creditors of the company,
who bid the real and personal
property in at the time of the
sale last month, have plans for a
reorganization worked out, and
confirmation of the court of the
sale is all that remains to pre­
vent action being consummated.
Attorney Jesse Stearns, who
has represented the Oregon int­
erests, stated that the new con­
cern would be in far better shape
for developing its land than was
the old company. As now situat­
ed. all creditors have come for­
ward and pooled their claims on
an equal footing. Such funds as
were confined to the sinking
fund for the first mortgage bonds
and the Howard lien claims, will
be released for development pur­
poses at once. Then the com­
pany will be in a position to is­
sue first mortgage bonds on the
entire property for additional
funds required, insuring this
paper as a gilt-edged invest­
ment. and offering assets of such
magnitude that no doubt is felt
about realizing all the money
needed quickly. These favoring
conditions give the people who
have actually put their money
into the enterprise control of the
property with a free hand to im­
prove it, according to its needs,
and as all elements have been
brought together again, the man­
agement is assured a clear field
of operations.
The Deschutes Irrigation &
Power Company is one of the
largest Carey Act propositions
handled in the Northwest It
involved land aggregating 214.
000 acres, which will be worth
several million dollars when re­
claimed. It is by far the most
important reclamation work un­
dertaken in Oregon, and the fact
that it is passing through finan­
cial difficulties and legal entan­
glements without a wreck is the
source of much congratulation
on all sides.
