carrv out an express agreement In a
deed, whereby the company secured the
land used as a mill site, then It re
mains for the consignor or his heirs
alone to object. The objections of other
corporations can avail thuni nothing.
This was the efTect of a decision
handed down yesterday by y""
Judge Cleland In the suit of the Cronn
Columbia Pulp At Paper Company ana
the Oregon City ManufacturingCompany
against the Hawley corporation. Plain
tiffs were seeking to have kept open a
strip of land upon which the Hawley
company has extended Its plant and
which was originally Intended to be
kept open and unobstructed for the
convenience of adjoining property hold
ers as well as the Hawley company.
The deed Involved was made out In
184 and transferred the property from
Panlel Harvey to George Larocque. The
1 paragraph upon which the suit hinged
was: , ,
"It Is expressly agreed, and this con
veyance Is on condition, that 40 feet of
said land north of sala mill. CO feet on

with a few hundred dollars on a tim

duly taken out to .a piece of land which,
he claims, looked more like a atrip of
Sahara desert than a thriving timber
claim. He refused to buy. Smith de

sued. Smith- defense was that Papl

return the money.

of the Nile
is located in the very center of the famous Inland Empire,
ihe part of Washington, Oregon and Idaho that up to about
ten years ago was considered sterile, worthless ground, but
- which under irrigation has proved to be the best laud in this
great America; not even being surpassed by that greatest
of heretofore-known valleys, the Nile, of Egypt.
This great valley of Egypt was made so fertile by the
overflowing of that great stream, the River Nile. The Rich
land Valley was made fertile in exactly the same way, only
that the fertility of this country is much more general than
that of the former, for the reason that this valley was once
covered by an immense lake, and the waters of the Snake,
Yakima and Columbia emptied their silt and refuse into this
lake, as well as numerous volcanoes throwing out their ashes
onto the water, and all of this settling to the bottom, where
it has formed a deep, rich soil that is underlaid with the
loose gravel, making the very best soil formation in the
world for irrigation. A sample of this soil, taken from dif
ferent sections of the district, was pronounced upon exam
ination by Government experts as being very rich in iron,
phosphoric acid, phosphate and lime. When you find the2
properties heavily impregnated in the soil, you can be abso
lutely certain that your land will raise anything on earth
that you wish to plant in it, provided you arc in an altitude
and latitude at which your crop would be supposed to ma
ture. The average elevation of our project is about 370 feet.
This low altitude, -ombined with the fact that wo lie 300
miles from the coasi, and 00 miles from the closest mountain
range, gives us an almost tropical climate. This is the rea
son that we can ripen our fruits from three to five weeks
ahead of every part of the Northwest, and therefore, having
no competition from any district north of San ,Toc, Cal.
- California is too far away to be any direct competitor, and
too distant from its markets to enjoy the profits from fruit
raising that we get from our farms.
Richland lies within 500 miles of all the largest cities
in the Northwest, which have a total population of over
4,000,000 people; therefore we can pick our fruit and ber
ries in the afternoon, and the next morning we place them
on the market in Butte, Helena, Anaconda, Great Falls, Lew
iston, Moscow, Coeur d'Alenes and Boise, as well as Spokane,
Seattle, Tacoma. . Olympia, Bcllingham, Everett, Victoria,
Vancouver, and Portland.
By this you will see that it will be nearly impossible for
us to supply all of these people with early fruits, to say
. nothing of the fact that our valley is the most successful
apple-raising district in the whole Northwest, and this is
the greatest apple country in the world.
, Richland is your last chance to get land in the Yakima
Valley, irrigated by gravity flow, for prices ranging from
$125 to $150 per acre, as all of the districts in this valley,
are older and prices have advanced until they are 50 to 100
per cent over Richland prices at the present time. The
waters of the Yakima, which is the only stream in that coun
try that passes. through a district of less than 1200 to 1500
feet elevation, that lies near enough the level of the sur
rounding land to take water out of without pumping, are
entirely appropriated, and the Columbia lies so low that
water has to be pumped to an elevation of from 50 to 125
feet to get it on the land, and pumping makes irrigation both
dangerous and costly. Dangerous, for the reason that your
pumps" or engines will Dreak down at the time you are using
them and need them the most, and therefore will leave you
without water; and costly, for the reason that these pumps .
must be purchased and installed, and fuel and repairs fur
Irrigated lands in our country, according to Government
reports (which are absolutely reliable), are returning greater
profits per acre than are any ten acres of non-irrigated
land anywhere in the Northwest. The reason for this is that
you have your water and moisture at the place and time that
you need it, never having your crop too wet or too dry, but
just enough warm water on it that, combined with the warm
sunshine,, of which we have over 300 days in every year,
causes a Very rapid growth, that cannot possibly be gained
by any other method of farming.
Transportation facilities in our valley are the very best,
having now three lines of railroad in operation, and two
more building, as well as open-river boats passing the town
and irrigated lands several times a day.

Reason for Irrigation." Join our regular Saturday excur
