Government to Adjust Umatilla
Water Rights.
.Department of Justice Orders Suit
Under Recent Oregon LawHear
ings to Be Held at Several
Different Points.
In an effort to determine the amount
of water which may be available for the
Umatilla project, the I'ntted States has
begun action for the adjudication of eoo.or
more water rights which are known to
exist along the Umatilla (liver and Its
tributaries. Many extend as fftr back
as 30 years, and in securing their recog
nition before the State Board of Control
it will be necesKary to Rather the testi
mony of many of the pioneers of East
ern Oreson. Much of the testimony as
to the earlier appropriations and their
priority riRhts to water for irrigation
purposes will depend upon the dates of
the application of the flow of the stream
for beneficial purposes.
The Department of- Justice lias ordered
the proceedings begun xinder the laws of
the State of Oregon ,an net haling been
passed by the last legislature making
provision for such adjudication. United
States. District Attorney McCourt will
be assisted by Special Assistant Oliver P.
Morton of the Reclamation Service in, the
litigation. The suit will be given prompt
hearing, for the reason that It was the
Jirst one llled under the new act. The
Oregon statute provides that upon peti
tion being presented the water rights riled
on any stream system may be determined.
All Flow Appropriated.
The entire flow of the Umatilla River
and the streams which empty into it
above the location of the Reclamation
Service dam at Kcho. which water is
available for diversion to that project,
was long since appropriated through fil
ings in the proper state offices, leaving
nothing for the use of the Reclamation
Service except by purchase. It Is be
lieved to be true, "however, that the In
dividual tilings for water rights are for
a. much larger number of cubic feet of
water than the Individual actually make
a beneficial application of. and that tha
Furplus water cannot be retained by such
claimants. Such surplus water would he

ervoir, as well as a large percentage of
the flood waters which run from the
Umatilla watershed.
In many instances it is believed that
actual users of water have neglected to
t'tle their claims, in the state offioa and
will depend upon proof they may be able
to produce as to the date when they
nctually turned the water into their

evidence for clients who are involved in
a water right controversy. The suit in
question is between the Swift Packing
Company, purchasers of the famous Hunt
ranch, and other users in Umatilla Coun
ty. Attorneys Raley and Phelps passed
through the city yesterday en route to
San Francisco, where they will take de
positions. .
In beginning the suit. District Attorney
McCourt will not concede that the Gov
ernment right to appropriate water be
comes subservient to the state laws, and
will avoid injecting that question into
the controversy. The Department of Jus
tice is the complainant for economical
reasons. It is believed to be less ex
pensive to bave the various rights de
termined and the flow of the Umatilla ap
portioned by action of the State Board of
Control than to proceed under the Fed
eral statutes.
Evidence will be taken before Commis
sioner Saxton. the Eastern Oregon mem
ber of the State Board of Control, and
hearings will be held at Pendleton, Echo
and other points. The sum of $5000 was
appropriated by the Legislature for ex-

flowers; the moderns, however, tell life to
do all this, and also build monuments of
marble to their memory and upon these
monuments write epitaphs: but the best
epitaph that can or will be written will

is not oblivion; 'tis only the opening of a
better and higher life. Men in tbis life
build their own characters, and the high
est aim of every man should be so to
order his own life, that when the end
comes, it can truly be said of him. "He

The speaker spoke of the fact that
until two years ago Portland had no
ambulance, remarking that "the unfor
tunate victim of an accident was jolted
and tortured in the police patrol to the
hospital, while persons with contagious
disease were conveyed in an express
wagon. This barbaric treatment is un
heard of in Eastern cities of the size of
Portland." he continued. "Today thera
is an ambulance service, but no at
tendant physician to render first aid
to the injured."
Milk Supply Impure.
Regarding the milk supply, the)
speaker said the complaints were not
unfounded; that 287 cases of typhoid
fever last Fall preceded in the Sum
mer by the deaths of 94 infants, in
spite of a pure water supply, pointed
almost conclusively to impure milk.
