MALHEUR ALFALFA LOSS.
Breaks in Ditches Play Havoc With
ONTARIO. Or.. May 26. (Special.) The
first crop of alfalfa under the Owyhee
irrigation canal of Malheur County, will
be cut short by more than half, because
of the late Spring and breaks in ditches.
The loss and expense is now estimated
at something near 560,000.
Just how much the second and third
crops will be affected cannot be esti
mated with any certainty, but they will
be short. There has been a great amount
of work this Spring to clear the main
canals of the soil and debris which
washed down from the hills after tho
Spring thaw. The Owyhee canal Is 25
miles in length and from 24 to 4S hours
are generally required for the water to
make the distance, but this Spring the
water has never reached the lower end
before the banks were broken above.
Repairs on a $1000 break are now near
ing completion. This shortage of the hay
crop will affect not only the ranchers,
but the cattle and sheepmen who are ac
customed to Winter in the Snake River
Valley. During the past Winter hay be
came scarce and the price passed 510 per
