l.a»t Saturday afternoon about 3
o'clock a message was received from
Culver saying that a big fire was
raging there, that the town was In
danger of destruction, and asking
for help from the lire department of
this city. W'yrd was sent buck that
If a special train was sent this city
would send some Are apparatus and
a number of volunteer firemen.
In the meantime Guy K. Iiohson
put his auto In rommlsalon and took
four men from here In a hurry to
Culver, lie was followed by another
auto containing Ave volunteer Are
Aghters.
I'pon arrival at Culver It was
found that the Farmers' wsrehouse
had burned to the ground and there
was no danger of the Are spreading
as the burned building was too far
away from adjoining buildings.
A strong wind was blowing at the
time of the Are and that was what
made the Culver people apprehen­
sive of danger for the whole town.
Two chemical engines were sent
from Madras and a locomotive sent
from Metollus. The water In the
tender of the locomotive was used
on the Are. The water supply at
Culver was almost entirely exhaust­
ed In efforts to stay the Are.
The Are Is supposed to have orig­
inated In a blacksmith shop near the
warehouse
There were about 1200
bushels of wheat In the warehouse,
most of If having been sold by the
farmers to outside parties, so the
farmers' loss will be small Some In­
surance was carried on the building
and contents. The loss was total.

A Salem dispatch of the 12th has
the following in regard to the North
Canal unit of the Central Oregon Ir­
rigation Company's project:
That the work on the North Canal
unit of the Central Oregon Irrigation
project, which the company haa of­
fered to sell to Oregon and the Catt­
ed States government for $309.000.
could be built at present for $184,-
000 Is a report made to Secretary of
the Interior Lane by government en­
gineers. A copy of the report has
been forwarded to Governor Went
Announcement was made by the
company when Its offer was submit­
ted that If the deal was consummat­
ed the money would he used In com­
pleting the work on the other units.
The Interior Department haa only
$420,000 available tor co-operative
work in Oregon and It is not proba­
ble that a deal can be made In the
near future for the completion of the
North Canal project through state
and federal co-operation. Aa a re­
sult It will be necessary for the com­
pany to complete the Improvement
or for the time being concentrate Its
efforts In Improving the canals or
other parts of the project
Regard­
ing the offer of the company to sell
the North Canal unit Governor West
said:
"Th e subject was submitted to
Secretary Lane for investigation,
with a view to completing the proj­
ect through state and federal co-op­
eration.

nnd the amount expended in works
to be $225,000, but make no allow­
ance for preliminary surveys or oth­
er expenditures connected with the
development of the project. The re­
port says that the works could be re­
produced now for $184,000. and rec-
State Engineer Lewis last Wed­
nesday notlffed the State Desert
Land Board that he had examined
lands which the Central Oregon Irri­
gation Co. wishes to have patented,
and that, because of excessive leak­
age. he would not certify them. The
list comprises 6783 acres to be wat­
ered by the Pilot Butte canal In
Crook county, says a dispatch from
Salem.
The State Engineer also wrote
Governor West s letter taking ex­
ception to a communication of the
executive to Secretary of the Inter­
ior Lane
Mr. Lewis said in hts let­
ter:
*‘ I regret to note that you take
exception to the statement that 'this
report l referring to one submitted
to Mr. Lane regarding government
and state co-operation in irrigation
work) has been jointly agreed upon
by the co-operating parties.' stating
that ‘ this should be changed to read
co-operating engineer*, as the co-op­
erating parties includes the Secre­
tary of the Interior and the governor
of Oregon, neither of whom have had
to do with the preparation of the
report, nor have as yet approved the
findings.'
“ Had you taken the time to In­
quire Into this matter 1 believe you
would have found that the wording
to which you object is in accord with
both the letter and spirit of the state
law and contract thereunder."
Mr. Lewis says no provision I»
made in the contract for the approv­
al or disapproval by the governor.
In his letter to the Desert Land
Board declining to certify patents to

tion project, the engineer makes the

will begin concreting the sides and
bottom of the city reservoir on top
of Forked Horn Butte. The Initial
concreting of the reservoir was not
deemed thick enough to stand a
heavy head of water In the basin.
Improvements will also be made
at the pumping plant so as to get a
larger stream of water flowing thru
the pipe Into the reservoir.
By
making the above Improvements It
Is estimated a considerable saving
can be effected In the mainte­
nance of the plant, and the preserva­
tion of the system guaranteed.
Several days last week the city
was enveloped In a haze of smoke
caused by fires in the mountains to
the west. One of the first fires was
over on the Metollus and a number
of men from the city went to fight
It, and the blaze was gotten under
control before much dange was done
to the standing timber. Other fires
were started and continued to spread
and last week Friday the wind from
the west blew the smoke Into town
nearly all day.
As yet the amount of damage to
standing timber haa not been ascer­
tained. It Is understood that the
fires were In privately owned timber.
