sKnlence. The pst week has been
i-ery ut at the resorts here., the
Chief went being the departure for home
of many who have taken, active part In
the nodal season during the past six
weeks. The Shell Road presents a rather
deserted 'xmearance, and the crowd at
the bowling alleys shows visible effects
of the thinning-out process which lias
been taking place. The hotels, however,
are still enjoying an unprecedented rush
of tourist travel, and this is expected to
continue for some time at least.
The V. W. C. A. wnvcntlon will spend
tho coming week at Seaside, and will
probably keep things lively during their
stay, as many will attend who xre making
their first visit to the ocean.

Tourists Arriving: Dally .Ivccp the
LONG BEACH, Sept. 2. (Special
Correspondence) Tho social season
hero is rapidly drawing to a close.
Numerous tourists aro still arriving
dally and will continue to keep tho
hotels busy for the next few weeks,
but the steady beach crowd of cot
tagers and Summer boarders is dimin
ishing in numbers, and with its depar
ture goes the spirit of enterprise and
activity which has largely been re
sponsible for the many pleasant social
gatherings and excursions of the past
month. No longer are seen the scores
of familiar faces at the steamer dock
waiting to greet their friends, and to
the little band of old-timers remaining
the place'presents a'lonesome and de--
farted appearance. This can hardly be
ascribed to any natural cause, for Na
ture was never more lavish with her
beautiful weather than now. but the
old precedent of returning home bj
the first of September seems hard to
remove, -and during the past week
storm shutters and gate padlocks have
been coming more and more into prom-
The extension of the Summer sched
ule for the boats, however. Is checking
the homeward rush to a certain extent,
and with the reinforcements of tourUts
expected. It is probable that the season
will be kept open later than usual, as
the absence of the Summer crowd will
not be noticed or considered a draw
back to those visiting the resorts for
the first time.

C. C. Hutchinson Tells of
Taken Within the Law.
PORTLAND. Sept. 2.-To the Ed
itor) The intimations appearing In The
Oregonian from your trustworthy Salem
correspondent cause some uneasiness on
the part of settlers upon the lands now
being Irrigated under contract' with the
i state by the Deschutes Irrigation & Pow
j cr Company,
j It Is well understood that the title of
these lands passes by patent from the
United States to the state only upon
proof that sufficient water had been fur-
j nlshcd In canals for the reclamation and
permanent Irrigation of the same. This
-proof must be furnished by the company
having contract for such reclamation,
and every stop must be approved by both
I state and United States officials, and the
law Is explicit in demanding this proof,
which Is the guarantee to the settler
of a future water supply.
Everyone knows that the Deschutes
River carries every day of every year
much more water than can ever be util
ized In the Irrigation of the 215,000 acres
proposed to be reclaimed In Crook County
under the Carey law by the Deschutes
That the company is building canals of
sufficient size to thoroughly Irrigate the
land lying under the same and amply
supply each tract. Is a fact known to all
who have visited the country, and It Is,
Immaterial as to the date when State En
gineer J. H. Lewis can examine these
works, and corrections of the land de
scriptions by him are a part of -his rou
There has not been and cannot be any
conflict between this official or the State
Land Board and the Deschutes Company.
Where the land titles of homeseekers de
pend upon the accuracy of all land lists
and strict compliance with the laws and
forms . prescribed, there must be delays
which are not understood by everyone.
The circulars and advertisements of the
Deschutes Irrigation & Power Company
explicitly assume for the- company, full
responsibility for its contracts and for
the irrigation of the land.
Any who desired to drop their first se
lection of land and take other lands have
been accommodated by the company, al
though out of 30.000 acres selected not a
half dozen such changes have been re
qusted. k The State Land Board has never
"balked" In the performance of Its oner
ous duties under our state law accept
ing the Carey act, and last year took the
long journey necessary to verify by per
sonal Inspection the actual conditions of
the region, and It Is hoped that tho Board.,
will find it possible- to accompany State
Engineer Lewis in his inspection of the
works under construction by the com
pany. C. C. HUTCHINSON.
